Stretch.. streeetccch…stretcccccchhhhh…..before excersising

Two inches above heel, I had been feeling a burning sensation since past four-five days.. it was slowly increasing as I wore a particular slipper and remained on my feet for long…

Discovered that I perhaps injured myself while exercising in gym. Improper warm up on one of the days resulted into Achilles Tendinitis -inflammation of the Achilles tendon (it connects the calf muscles to the heel bone)

So, my exercise regime has gone for a six – no activity till inflammation subsides. I am hoping to start on Monday with weight training and I guess its also time to go swimming.

TaZa TaZa

After searching for days I finally found a radio station on the net which plays the music I like. So, sitting here in central India I listen to music broadcasted by a US based Internet radio station – TaZa radio

What impressed me most is the support they offer – As usual I was about to give up muttering “bah yet another site for IE and Windows users” but decided to let the site owners know of existence of users like me who use Fedora Core1 , Mozilla and RealOne player. What I did not know was that I will end up being so impressed to make a complete entry on LJ about it. Ram Bapu the COO responded to my mail promptly and gave me a link that enabled me to listen to the Radio on RealOne player directly. What more, I discovered I can listen to radio using my XMMS too using this link – by changing ‘ba’ to ‘east’ or ‘central’ or ‘mountain’ or ‘la’ I can listen to the other stations of TaZa Radio – and here I am *completely* addicted!!!

I am yet to find out as to why I cant get the link working through Mozilla.

Big bunch of thanks to Jessie, Atul, Khader, Shradha, Jace, Noella, Mannu, Balaji, Mona, Ashwin, for wishing me.

Thanks Kaja for the lovely Card.

I celebrated it by sleeping in the afternoon instead of working (and you who is going to crack a wise one, beware, you are much older and already having “typical” old age problems of not getting the figures right 😛 )

Got several cards from Tarique and a set of Gold danglers. Aasim gave me a lovely card and I bought myself a white cheese cotton dress. Chiya gave something for the dining table and mom is yet to come… so I have more surprises coming in

Painting work in the office is starting tomorrow – I hope I don’t get another asthma bout.
