Have I been gone long?? Many waters have passed under the bridge o! :-)
Well, I chose to get away from the horrors going on around the world and talk about my typical weekday morning routine! J
You know how you have some ritual going in your day/life sometimes? I guess I am no different!

Every morning when I arrive at my desk; I place my hand bag and laptop bag on my desk, whisk out my tiny purse of keys, phones, and iPad, all in that order. I connect my laptop to its docking station and then I plug in my earpiece. Phones are positioned just so, and iPad unobtrusively so I can work it without having to move it around. I arrange all the documents I need to work on in a file, on the desk, then I go get my inevitable cup of tea and then the joy of the day begins: music. If I am at my desk and the earpiece is not in my ears, I am completely bereft, like something critical is missing and indeed something is! Actually, sometimes, especially when I move around a lot, I realize at some point that the earpiece is in my ears but nothing is playing! lol. Many a time too, I have disrupted the peace on my floor because in my swiveling around, the earpiece pops out of the laptop and music fills the air! I am sure my colelagues roll their eyes at me such times, Lol!
What I listen to depends on my mood; when it is raining, I automatically switch to classical (a habit I developped years ago and that's become like religion!) otherwise, it is either my favorite Jazz radio station (the French or the English one), or I put together a play list from the collection on my laptop; sometimes I am in the mood for Enigma or Enya (could be when I am depressed, hmm, you would think that should depress me further but hey! *straight face*) for now though, my present preoccupation is the Maranatha Singers, the 'Old Skool' gospel songs, and you wont believe it, I even found a CD of (the Ibo Nigerian) 'Voice of the Cross' (who remembers them? 'Good morning Jesus, good morning Lord??) but whatever the case, there has to be music in my ears. What is life without music? I can’t imagine it.
Whatever the case, the two things that are never missing in my day? Music and tea. :-)
My typical work day routine! What’s yours?!
God Bless Nigeria
