Bored on a Monday Afternoon!

Got a little bored between work, so decided to play with my new purchases. My Kindle Paperwhite and anti-glare glasses. I thought why not take a picture of them using my wide angle lens and my pinhole lens and see how they come out 😉
It’s just me on a Monday morning afternoon. So, here are the photographs, edited a bit with DPP (Digital Photo Professional)

Wide Angle view:

Pinhole view:

I like both of them, one is very crisp and clear whereas the other makes it a little bit more real, like how it would look if I was seeing it if I was wearing a glass with thicker lens.

Bored!!!

When I am bored I love taking some quizzes , anything fun and not adding much pressure to my already exhausted brain. Sometimes, I turn to Buzz-feed for my fun quota. I was really bored during the second half of the work day and took some simple quizzes for fun.

1) Who Is Your “Game Of Thrones” Soulmate?

You know what I got ????

You got: Tyrion Lannister

When it comes to partners-in-crime, it’s brains and not brawn that matter, right? Like Tyrion, you’re sharp as a tack, and aren’t fooled by anyone. Have a large glass of wine, because you and Tyrion are meant to be buds for life.

Yay!!!! My favorite character 😉  Not sure about being soulmate, but yeah buds for life ? why not!

2) What Is Your Scottish Name?

Now, this I wasn’t very sure, because I didn’t know much of the places or the flowers or drinks…So the answer was quite random for the questions asked. And my answer was

You got: Fergus

Hi, your name is Fergus (Fearghas), which means “man-strength”. You are fit, you are strong, you are more powerful than they can possibly imagine.

Hmm… For a female, should it be Fergie ? Hell, whatever ? Sort of matches me to some extent I believe.

Do you wanna play them and let me know what you got ? Are there any other fun games you know of, to keep the boredom away ?

Probably not a good idea !?

When I got up today, I really thought it would be a relaxed one just like yesterday. But my expectation was short lived, as usual. And I was in this official call dealing with some last minute stuff for almost 7 hours straight, with a few minutes break in between where the cell phone company thought that I was talking for over 2 hours on my phone and they cut the call themselves every 2 hours and I had to redial. And now since I am waiting on something to finish, thought of taking a break and post about something I saw a couple of days ago and which got me thinking a little bit. And pardon me if it feels like rambling because my head is slightly swimming with visions after seeing the monitor for so long. But can’t take a full break as of yet.

I saw the Jurassic World movie trailer recently after hearing about it in radio that it is done well. Whoa!! Way too cool. And sound effects were chilling.

And when I saw it later, I realized a few similarities from the first one, Jurassic Park. I remember seeing that in theater and being in awwwwwe  That gate, the lake, the way they want to evacuate, the gyro-sphere etc. Then found a webpage and an article which explained all the similarities between the two. Amazing and very well done. Definitely a must watch in IMAX and 3D, what do you say? Honestly I am not a big fan of Dinosaurs as a living being. Am glad to have so many centuries between them and me, you know. While talking about the trailer I asked my friends, if there was such a world would they be interested in visiting it at all ? or is it just the fantasy of it that they like. One of them told me, ‘Hell no!, I am not going anywhere near them’ and the other was like, ‘if I had enough money to pay for that trip, I would definitely go’. And when I asked him if he wasn’t afraid of them, he just said, ‘I will be in my gyrosphere, what is there to be afraid of?’. And when they asked me, I just replied, ‘I won’t go anywhere near them or the part of the globe where they reside. Especially if they are genetically modified, I won’t even think about them.’

Then I got thinking about my reply. Not a few days ago, I was again confirming with my friends about our next trip to a African Safari and trying to gain as many votes. Not many are interested, but there is still time to pull them to the dark side 😉 Now, is the Jurassic World any different from any other Safari that we do ? If we leave alone the part where they might be alive because of genetics ? There is always a risk involved. Wild animals are just that. They are wild. But don’t we get a thrill to go by their natural habitat and see them in their natural environment ? And accidents do happen (even in a zoo in fact) and they can turn against us in a blink of an eye. How is visiting a park  full of dinosaurs in an island  any different ? When I think of myself sitting in that gryosphere and looking around and being close to them, I get goosebumps and think that may be it is indeed a good idea (damn my curiosity and that rush of adrenaline) but when I calm down my skin gets ice cold. I know that I won’t harm any animals, but the animals don’t know that, do they. What if my kindest act triggers a predatory instinct in them ?

What do you think? Would you visit a Jurassic World if there was one?

Does this mean…

That I am bored out of my mind?

Swaying the Wedding Date

It’s Friday evening which is why I am not feeling like working (not an excuse my manager will accept but well, its the truth. Ask the almost empty office). On top of that, the weather is making me all lazy and sleepy. All I feel now is to burrow inside a blanket and watch some rom-com (easy on the eyes and mind). I don’t know why the movie Wedding Date came to my mind , when it wandered on what movie to select if I had that option. I love that movie for Debra Messing.  I found my favorite song in that movie and was so glad when it portrayed the whole movie in it. I felt like I watched the movie again 🙂
