So many things, so little time

There is one Lawyer Boy who is pretending to work so hard that he has disabled "Sent from my handheld Blackberry" from his mail. So when he is out on the road drinking mausambi juice with future models, people think he is at work if he sends a quick mail.

Anyway basically this Lawyer Boy is an intern. Like I said, these days due to Bandwidth Crisis, even interns are given office phones and the better-looking boys the Berries. Girl-Interns are not given the handsets due to fear of misuse: too much e-mailing hee hee type of forwards (10 Ways to Know if He is Into You) and all.

Anyway as it is holiday season y'all can now pretend to be less busy. Busy, but less so. For life, darlings (men, don't get ideas unnecessarily it is a Film fare black-cat figure of speech), is a matter of dying by degrees. Or pretending to.

Showing off my English little-bit

So now to hedge my bets against women who believe a guy who loves poetry is better than guy with a better bonus here goes:

Day and night my toils redouble,
Never nearer to the goal;
Night and day, I feel the trouble
Of the Wanderer in my soul.

These lines
Are not mine
They reside
On a website
Which contains
Poems about love
Death and Earth [caps make words deeper]
Oh, and nature and birth
Especially by some

So the extract was from a poet called Wordsworth. But why should I put (c) and dilute my borrowed genius?

The art of appreciation lies in selection. Like in picking the right template for a DRHP not in manually drafting Issue Procedure again (other than amendments for PAN and the pursuit of other delights)

I am thinking of adding copyright violation as additional cover letter item.

Everyone knows, if you can deal with a real estate company, you can deal with anyone including your own annoying self.

These are the companies that make you thank your choice of professions, pushy bankers, huge Word documents, tedious typos and coughing printers. Because you could have, in a different birth (I am Hindu) been working for a real estate company.

Anyway in recent drafting session, left-lead banker exchanged souls with post-issue banker and underwriters counsel also had big identity crisis and thought it was company counsel with fetching pending data like e-mails of bankers to the company (circulating items more micro than cheap clothes some women in Nach Baliye wear); then CFO became auditor and started giving comfort letters as if he was autographing accounts. Auditor became like compliance department of bulge bracket bank and kept commenting on fine drafting points of MoU coz some Idiot Lawyer marked him also on mails and we are all coded to reply to emails if any one receipient has replied. Towards the end, everyone got into a commenting fury till I realized I was commenting on my own draft, that too aggressively making rude remarks, scratching a whole page and writing "JUSTIFY" [mean to be formatting but hoped some suckers would wonder if it meant explain]

Anyway now I do not know what to do. Now that auditor is officially in loop we cannot reply on him to buy time. And by the way, ad agency guys is sending sharp comments on timings mentioned in Issue Procedure.

All this is too much. They say I should get married but like a good portfolio company I want to wait, get a better valuation and then float myself like a cruiser.

Keep reading.
