Make way for Mr. J (John!)

Taaaaaaaadddddaaaaaaaaaa!! Finally.

I go by the nick of Mr. J a.k.a Sillygoof or you could just call me John, which is my first name by the way.

I've been blogging since June 05' but found it boring & deleted all my posts...until I moved to Austria and blogging became second nature to me.

I'm from Hyderabad and presently in a tiny island called Malta in Southern Europe, working in the new media a.k.a the Internet industry, heading the sales & marketing department while I fail to understand how my four years of education in computers helps me in my job.

You wouldn't be mistaken to call me a nerd even now, cos every now and then I venture into those password protected HR files and any issues with this website, give me a shout.

Apart from music & a bit of reading (which I do only when i'm flying), I love collecting flags and currencies of the places i've been to, appreciate fine arts (but hate the fact that they are so damn expensive), have a keen interest in technology (which will always be my first love) and go ga-ga over my Jack Daniels or Chivas on the rocks...and recently discovered that Heineken isn't bad either. But as I always say, enjoy the drink and not the other way around.

I can be friendly but it takes me a while to get comfy with people in general and i'm quite picky, but once the ice is broken with the right company, i'm pretty much easy going.

I've been living out of my two suitcases for the last two years and close to 6 years in total, away from home and love every moment of the experiences that have and will come by- the highs and lows of everyday life, which my blog aptly captures and I firmly believe in three things: A) God B) Live and let live C) Failure is when you give up instead of trying your best (sadly not many people agree to this).

Two things that make me mad outright is A) Being taken for granted (which is not what you think it is) B) When someone messes with my drink. (It's Whiskey on the rocks with 4 cubes.) Simple, yet hard to follow.. Sigh!!

There are quite a few people in here whom I haven't come across but thanks to IshiAmma, have heard a lot about some of you and it's quite nice to meet on a common platform like this, rest assured i'll pop by your place soon.

In conclusion.... that's all there is, to this humble and modest soul. Catch you guys in the next post.
