Some censuring Readers will scornfully say, why hath this Lady writ her own life? Since none cares to know whose daughter she was or whose wife she is, or how she was bred, or what fortunes she had, or how she lived, or what humor or disposition she was of? I answer that is true, that 'tis to no purpose to the Readers, but it is to the Authoress, because I write it for my own sake, not theirs. ~Margaret Cavendish in 1655

don't panic

There was multiple bombings here in Bangladesh. Two people have been reported killed and 150+ injured. I was working in my cube and the power went out for about 10-15 minutes. I didn't hear anything or feel anything shake, so it wasn't a very powerful bomb. The only thing that is really disturbing my everyday existence is the lack of public transport this morning. The roads were really empty and I had to pay extra for my ride into work (but I have to take into account that it was raining, which always means you have to pay more). I don't know if there will be hartals (general strikes), since a radical Islamic group might be behind it and not the political opposition. We'll see. But that won't stop me from coming to work all weekend! No fun for me this weekend and 10 hour work days. Let it begin!

Take care!

Glad to hear that you are safe & sound.
Be thankful your not in the stats- gas prices are soaring!
$2.60 per gallon- I must be old I remember filling up in high school of $0.80 per gallon. Yikes!
