During the past week I spent a lot of time promoting Educate Lanka for the chase community giving program. Well, that sort of fell through with Educate Lanka getting only about 9000 votes (while the winners got ~100,000). Funny how so many people jump at the opportunity to take all sorts of nonsense quizzes, ask Aunt Anita for advice and vote for politiccas on virtual polls but cant bother to spend half a minute to cast a vote that will help an underprivileged student. I know they call the land of lions a developing nation but with this sort of attitude it’s probably an un-developing country. But, it’s not the end of the world.

Speaking of the end of the world, 2012 is the hot Armageddon topic these days. Apparently, the Aztec calendar ends in 2012, so the world will also end. Of course this isn’t the first time us humans predicted doomsday and I have a feeling it won’t be the last. On the bright side, if the world does end in 2012 we won’t have to wait around for global warming to wipe us out. That’s a consolation, right?

Global warming or not, it’s hot as hell in Perth. It’s summer time here in Aussi land (yes, the weather patterns are up-side-down here – among other things) and a terribly hot one at that. What bothers me is that the heat reaches a maximum during the weekends and it cools down on weekdays. Last weekend it reached 43 degrees and then it dropped down to 20s and 30s after Monday. This weekends’ forecast says it’s going to be the high 30s and it will be humid as well. It will again drop down on Monday. Why can’t it be hot on the weekdays (when I’m at work and inside an air conditioned office) and cold on the weekends (when I’m at home with just a fan). So, my grand conspiracy theory is that the air-con companies have control over the Perth weather. Do you agree? Leave a comment to let me know.

Wish everyone a nice and cool weekend.
