The Eureka Moments that define my life....

I'm not exactly a dumb blonde. But yeah, I tend to be dumb sometimes....Maybe, that's why Deepika has Ranbir and he doesn't know about my existence. (sniff sniff)


Sometimes, I discover somethings which were right in front of me: and I never figured it out.

It's those Eureka Moments that I'm gonna write about.


1) I have a laptop since August 2006; and I discovered on 13th October 2008 that my laptop has an inbuilt mike. Damn. I could have talked with so many people on mike instead of wasting money on those damn phone bills. Damn damn damn.

Positive side of the story: Yay!! I'll have someone to talk to even at 1 in the morning when I'm bored. Yay!! I can chat with my sis!! Yay!! I end up talking only 10,000 words a day(minimum): now I can talk 10,000 words at night too(minimum)!

2) How did I discover it? Don't you dare laugh: The other person called me up on gtalk to make me hear a song, and I was oblivious to the fact that the other person can hear me. I was happily abusing another person who was irritating me; and abusing my laptop for being so slow. Suddenly, the other person messages me on gtalk: stop saying 'shit'.

I gaped at the laptop screen.

Then, I understood. My laptop had an in built mike.

3) But where was it? I was talking on the mike, and the other person could hear me; but I didn't know where to talk. I felt the mike was under the laptop. I tilted my poor, poor laptop and started speaking on it.

The genius at the other end remarked. They wouldn't be stupid enough to place a mike under the laptop. Right?

Yeah. Actually.

The icing on the cake.Err. laptop, I mean: We started talking about mikes (typing, not talking) and the conversation jumped to web cams. Of course, I have a web cam at home, but I had never seen a web cam on any laptop. So, my friend just generally mentioned if I had a webcam, I would be having a mike too.
And yours truly over reacted. (why?why? Is this the reason why I didn't get Rahul Dravid and i can't get Ranbir Kapoor now?) I was tilting my laptop on all angles possible trying to find the mike, so I was distracted. But. I can't forgive myself for being so dumb.

I say:
OMG. Do I have a webcam also????? :O

The worst part: One day after this web cam (mis)adventure happens, I saw a webcam on a friend's laptop. I gazed at my reflection and wondered. Why. why. why......

4) P.s- I still don't know where my mike is. But I still talk.

I'll write more of these Eureka Moments later.

p.p.s- Credit goes to Peter for giving those dumb blonde moments the tag of 'Eureka Moments'

And no more posting for the next 2 weeks. Exam time is back. Sniff sniff.

Maybe your mind is too preoccupied with exams that you couldn't dig the mic out. Sell this reason to RK and you definitely would have approving ears and nodding head!

P.S. Go on crack your exams with/without the mike!
