New Beginnings...yay...WTF!?

God knows (and I do now) that new beginnings are overrated. I hate new beginnings. The warming up period, almost always, exceeds my limit of enduring idleness. I reiterate. I hate it. Since I last posted on this blog, there's been as many new things in my life as a person can be excited about. And with my 'non-enthusiasm' for the new, little wonder that I've not written anything about it. The 'New' list goes like this...
a. I got married
b. I got my dream job
YAY!! yea..yea.. that's what I'm supposed to do. I mean, hey, its nice and everything, but the acclimatisation takes soooooooooooooooooo-freaaaaaaaaking-loooooooooong!!! And I write today, not out of excitement, but because I am bored out of my wits.
When the 'fun' part of the wedding propah was over with, my self-imposed work exile needed me to spend hours and hours alone at home doing this glorified deed of waiting for my husband...sheesh!! Three weeks of 'housewivery!?' and I was dead-bored or rather bored-dead...and I grabbed the first job that came my way (needless to say, I wasn't really keen about it). So, the first week of that job was all about sitting around and waiting to get grafted in. So I warmed the chair eight hours a day surfing the net, staring out of the window, smoking, surfing the net and surfing the net some more, while my New colleagues walked past with surreptitious looks (being the only woman at work isn't half as much fun as I thought it would be).
Another week passed and I went about with my fake smile plastered all over my face trying to be one of them. Each time I was bored and tempted to never come back, I reminded myself that being an idle employed being was better than being an idle housewifey thing. The end of the second week got me an offer from this 'dream job' I mentioned earlier. I'm at the desk (or on the bench as the IT guys refer it to) of this dream job - my third day - and I'm (no prizes for guessing) warming up all over again. Aaaargh!!
So I sit here all day...tada....warming the chair eight hours a day, blah, blah, blah, blah...
And oh... I finally gave up on The Lord of the Rings yesterday after the first two books.. Why?...of's BORING!!!
