$0.70 richer than I was three months ago!*

So, it's been about three months since the day when I - in an uncharacteristic fit of a) optimism b) insanity c) technological curiosity d) all of the above - signed up for google's adsense thingy. I think it is now time to ask the question:

Does anyone know why the stupid sole banner I signed up for, is half-hidden under the half-inch wide blue line that runs across the top of the page? The one that has all the 'SEARCH BLOG', 'FLAG BLOG' and the (modestly title-cased) 'Next Blog' links? Anyone??

* And if THIS doesn't tempt you, I don't know what will.

"engineering jobs"???

if i were you i'd be *happy* that was hidden!

Tabula Rasa: Well, NOW it says something about...err, something an 'Indigo Child's parents should know'.

And it's driving me nuts that I don't know what an Indigo Child *is*...or what its parents know!

Say, they have internet in Kashgar? So it's not like the book anymore? Damn all progress!

70 coppers at 10% interest compounded semi-annually grows to $92.05 in 50 years. (Yes, I know, I'm smart like that.)

The same invested in a few paani-puris this afternoon is immediately satisfying.

I'd go with Plan B.

twas gurgaon, not kashgar, but close enough.

it's "update your resume now".

LOL ...just of the rid of the damn thing, CS. At one point my Adsense was advertising for lingerie!

hey btw, I wasn't at the blogger party at Seijo's.

is just rewards. now sit in corner and reflect on your misdeeds. tsk, tsk. one is appalled at quick-buck one has to go to buy a lottery ticket.

Sougata: *whooosshhh* That was the sound of Plan A going by.

So Plan B it is. I didn't know you got good paani-puri in 'merica - I have a hard enough time finding it in bombay!

Tabula Rasa: Oh Gurgaon, Kashgar, what's the difference! They're both *places* after all. Right?

But by god, that is a drastic (and rather sad) change in itinerary.

SwB: Makes sense. Now all I need to figure out is *how*.

Oh and Re: Seijo's, well. that's good then. least I didn't miss you.

??!: "Quick" buck? *Quick*?? Are you sure that's the word you're you're lookin' for?

But if it's any consolation, I'm reflecting. :(

nonono, the itinerary stays (touch freaking wood!), we just got the dates mixed up in transmission.
