A colleague

Just found out that a colleague of mine is getting divorced. He's a real nice guy, but it seems to me that his wife had other plans in life (and I dont mean cheating). He's totally shattered and well, I feel for this guy a lot. We've been friends for a short while now, and he's just the nicest person around. Hang in there buddy...there IS light at the end of the tunnel, and your tunnel has only just begun


My dad gave the family a bit of a shocker when he keeled over with abdominal pain last week. Turned out to be a blocked intestine and the doctors managed to clear out the blockage without surgery. This guy is my best buddy and he keeps thinking he's invincible. He feels that he should'nt bother people with his aches and pains coz that just makes him a burden. Dear dad...if only you knew that we DO care so much for you :)


Coming to the end of my current client engagement. Not much to really look forward to after that. The market has been pretty bad for Management Consultants over the past few years and despite everyone's optimism that this will be the year of the rebound, I think its going to take much longer.

Ever get into the debate on outsourcing? About how we're losing our jobs here to people in India and China? I guess thats the price of go where is economically beneficial and where it keeps your company out of the red.

Killings...ever wonder why all we hear is bad news on TV on the radio? Someone blowing themselves up in Israel, our soldiers dying in Iraq and Afghanistan, unrest in the middle east, al-qaeda and god knows how many other fundamentalist organizations just looking to kill someone? Yes, I know its in our nature to destroy ourselves...but this is getting ridiculous. Somebody do something about all this...and I DONT mean more violence.
