Yeay!! We have a pandemic on the loose!! Wuhuu!!!
Basically, the pandemic is declared coz the virus is much more widespread, not because it becomes so much more virulent. So, pls don't panic unnecessarily.
On the nationside, the jerebu season had finally arrived...full force I would say. Visibility had gone down to a couple of kms only.
Well, just had a chat with my boss. He said the haze reminds him of the movie 'The Mist' (the one that is based on the Stephen King's same titled book). Now, we are anxiously peering into the gloom, waiting for the creatures to start arriving...
Hark, our cubicles are really in front of large glass windows.
Where should we go when the creatures start coming? He said the lift would be safe, I said the toilet. Let us see, who will be still standing when this is over.
Hmmm...where is my nail filer?

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.
- T.A. Conrad
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
