Well, today it looked like this.
I was talking to a friend when I saw this, and he pointed it out to me, that this was his smile! A smiley with a wink!! Because he always sends a wink in all his messages!! Lol.
This one goes out to V. And sorry, perplexed, I kinda stole your concept. =P

Well, it took me a good four hours after that to crawl out of bed, but the point was I was up, and it was still dark outside. Its been a while since..OK, fine, I've never woken up at such a time before! Its probably because I crashed much before even my school curfew last night. But I'm up now, (hmm..its post 9, but you get the drift..) and also, its New Years Eve, our second favourite-st day of the year! I say our because you all obviously have to agree with me on this one, and I say second because the first is obviously my birthday!! (I didn't say our there;)!)
Some things to keep you smiling throughout..:)
Look at the stars, look how they shine for you..
and everything you do, and it was all yellow!
I came along, I wrote a song for you,
and all the things you do, it was called yellow!
Take back the city for yourself tonight..
I'll take back the city for me.
Take back the city for yourself tonight..
I see trees of green...red roses too,
I see them bloom, for me and for you..
I see skies of blue, clouds of white...
bright blessed days, dark sacred nights...
ans I think to myself....what a wonderful world!
There are some things I'd like to know though:
1. Meatloaf - You'd do anything for love.
You'd do anything for love.
You'd do anything for love.
But you won't do WHAT?
2. Taylor Momsen - Why, why why that hairdo?? Its bad enough you're annoying, now you just look like a poodle whose owner wanted it to look just like her!
3. God - How could you allow me to turn 21!!? Hmph.
Sigh. Moving on..
1st January means so many things. For me, its mainly these:
1. End of exams!
2. End of 7 semesters under VTU!
3. Its going to be the beginning of awesome year!!!
5. Did I already say its going to be awesome? Well, let me just say it again! Its going to be awesome!
OK, before I get back to Fuzzy Logic, Id like to sign off with this.
Someday I'll fly, someday I'll soooaarrrr!
Someday I'll be so damn much mooooorrrre!
Cause I'm bigger than my body, bigger than my body gives me credit for!
Those lucky people happen to be you guys!!
Yes, yes, thank you, now back to your seats. Enough of jumping with joy.
Recently, I downloaded this movie, Nick and Norah's Infinite playlist. It took nearly half a day to download. When it did finish, and when I tried playing it on VLC Player, I got this message on the screen.
DOWNLOAD THE XVOD DECODER TO VIEW THIS FILE. THIS DECODER IS AVAILABLE AT TORRENTSU.COM
So, I went to torrentsu.com, and there the decoder was available for some amount of money. So obviously, I took the easier(free) way out and searched for it on CNET. Weird, it wasn't available.
Later I found out that this was a scam created by some people who inserted this scam software into movies, which displayed the same or similar message to the one I saw. There is no such thind as an Xvod decoder. It was just some easy was for the 'scammers' to earn some money! So if you do happen to download such a file, report the torrent and delte the file. DO NOT BUy THE SOFTWARE.
*edited to add - If you guys download your torrents from mininova, this user v_axxo has created these aforementioned fake torrents. Axxo is te right guy, V_axxo with his 23789 seeds and peers is fake.
Not exactly over, but RIA is! And I will pass it for sure! All is well in my world again!!:) There is so definitely a God!! Today shall henceforth be Thanksgiving for me! Time to watch Dead Man's Chest now!!

What did we ever do to deserve such a cruel, torturous punishment? I bet the people of Iraq would much rather choose war over you! And the US citizens would gladly re-elect Bush again!

If ever you need something to wake you up, when you're insanely drowsy, or completely slumped or demoralized, listen to the second half of Free bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd.
It works like caffeine! You'll be up and running in no time!

Three words. GO WATCH IT.
Before I begin, I'd like to tell you that most of this review will be very biased towards Aamir Khan, because I have been in love with him since I was five years old.
The movie is brilliantly made. Sure, the story is rather unbelievable, but then again, its a Bollywood movie. It keeps you on the edge of your chair, chewing your nails for the complete duration of three and a half hours. Aamir Khan has done an extremely commendable job, portraying Sanjay Singhania, who is, as the villain calls him, a sh-oort term memory loss patient, and an extremely violent one at that. This is one of the few action films Aamir has done, and after Ghajini, he's a certified badass! But what puzzled me was how he became a left hander all of a sudden. Kalpana, the love of Sanjay's life, was played by Asin, a newcomer, whose role is very comparable to Kareena in Jab We Met, and most Priety Zinta roles; a happy, slightly mad, overly talkative blissfully-unaware-about-everything kind of girl. It was nicely done, though her Tamil accent was obvious in a few scenes. But she totally played her role to the part. Jiah Khan was so-so. The only proper dialogue she had throughout the movie was, 'Hi I'm Sunita. I'm a medical student.' Pradeep Rawat is the villain here, as in the Tamil version(you may remember him as the Surd in Lagaan), and yes, he's a super cunning and vile one at that. The film is very graphic (my mom had her eyes shut for very many scenes) and there certainly is a lot of violence in it, though its nothing if you've gotten used to Body of Lies and the likes.
The music, by A R Rahman, speaks for itself. Most of the songs were dream sequences, but songs kind of make or break the Bollywood movie. My favourite was Aye Bachchu and Behka. Guzaarish, I thought was very Suraj Hua Madham. But A R Rahman, as usual has done a superb job. Three cheers!
I give the movie a 4.5/5. Its a must watch. Definitely worth watching in an in-between exams study break, and a very well spent break, at that. Completely worth getting sandwiched for an hour in an attempt to buy tickets. Oh, and the eight pack was highlighted too much, I tell you. Methinks a six pack might've looked much better! But, Ab jaao jaake dekho!

But it is the best time of the year, after all!
So have a super Christmas, binge on some plum cake and Christmas wine, and thank your lucky stars(VTU students), that you have a 5 day break this time around!
Now the ground is (not-so)white, go it while you're young!
Take the girls tonight, and sing the sleighing song!
Just get a bop-tailed bay, two forty for his speed,
Just hitch him to an open sleigh and CRACK! You'll take the lead!!
Happy Holidays, all!!!:):) Make sure you buy a Santa hat and sing carols!! And deck the halls with boughs of holly too!!
P.S - I hope you've been good this year, he's been watching!;)

Haven't I told you about my Apple plan? I haven't? Woah! That's an accomplishment for me, considering I can't stop talking about it. Anyway, today must be your lucky day, because you get to hear it too! Its simple, really.
In ten years or so, I plan to buy Apple.
The company? With the iPod and the likes?
D-uh! Thought you could figure that out from the title!
OK, wait I expected a more supportive answer, something in the lines of how awesome I am, and how awesome the plan is, and how awesome the world will be with me there! Nothing?? That's it! I'm not giving you free iJets or iHouses! I will live on my iCloud and you chumps will be stuck on earth! Hmph!
The explanation for the above paragraph: I'm a Piscean. Pisceans are dreamers. And I for one, am a super ambitious one at that. Though I have no short time goals, just awesomely awesome long term ones(which may just come true, btw.)!
So the real point of the post. I(with space)think:
(yep, this is another one of them self indulgent posts)
1. Exams are bo-ooooring! I'm done with just one, and it already feels like a life time of torture!
2. Insomnia during exams is the worst thing that can hapen to you.
3. Two simple words, 'You go', can redefine the word hilarious!!
4. I must be mad to be writing this during exams. But you knew that already!
5. Birthdays during exams are the worst thing that can happen to you! No, no not mine, but people I know.
6. Orlando Bloom is one of the prettiest actors in Hollywood. Note - I said prettiest, and I said actor(male).
7. Aye Bachchu is a super funky song! (Yes, I'm one of those who can't wait for Ghajini! And no, I haven't shaved my head!)
8. Adventures in Solitude is also an awesome song!
9. Maintainability should have a better and much longer definition than -just being the ability to maintain!! (And you mech boys say Mechanical engineering is hard!! Gaaah!)
10. Its really annoying when there are seeds and there are peers, but still Starter Wife will not download!
11. Dexter is going to be awesome! Can't wait to watch it after exams!
12. Shonda Rimes should completely stop the Izzie-having-sex-with-a-dead-person storyline! Give me a break! Yes, Alex, that's the truth! And its stooopid! And yes, apparently, it can happen!
13. Amitabh Bachchan is not all that. There, I said it!
14. They could've changed the Dostana ending. And made the two characters gay. That would've been a much better ending. It was totally entertaining, though.
15. I kinda overuse exclamation marks.
16. Its now 11a.m and I should start studying!
Now, you think!
P.S - Adventures in Solitude - The New Pornographers

Why can't it be easy for us?
Why do we have to try so hard?
Why can't it be effortless, like it is for some others around us?
Why do we have to wait so long for it to begin, and then feel, 'Shit that was quick!'?
Why do we feel we're so ready to be out there, and then, when we are, almost immediately go, 'Oh f#$@!!'?
Why are our heads filled only with 'Oh man's..' and 'What's going to happen next'?
Knock yourself out trying to answer those..
Happy holidays everyone!
As for me, I'm crashing early today, in what seems like forever!
4 days to go!
Hey that might be a clue....or maybe not.. no kidding!
I just confused myself reading all that again.
And I suddenly feel like listening to Kya Karen from Rangeela. Can't find it anywhere on the internet!! Daaym!!

I HAVE SOME AWESOME NEWS FOR YOU!!
THE EXAM, PREVIOUSLY SUPPOSED TO BE HELD ON 27TH DECEMBER, 2008, IS POSTPONED TO 19TH JANUARY, 2009.
The news is apparently put up on the main VTU site, which is, surprise surprise, down, but a friend of a friend confirmed it from the main site, as well as this one.
Now, now, those who're upset, STOP BEING UPSET. This is news of great joy! Us, dumbasses, needed the extra time, especially with RIA lurking around the corner!!
Thank you for the blessings!:)

I smile to myself..
I smile when I'm alone.
I smile when noone's looking...
I smile when I think noone's looking...
I even smile sometimes when I wake up in the morning.
I smile when you talk.
I smile as I listen.
I smile as I read..
I smile when I see baby clothes in FabIndia.
I smile as I look on..
I smile as I sing.
I smile now, as I stretch wanting to go to sleep!
I smile now that I've said smile so many times it doesn't even feel like a word...
Pretty self-obsessed eh?
I'm probably going to wake up tomorrow and go whaaaat? *smiles*
1. A better India, without these idiots....(hopefully).
2. Jude Law.
3. Shopping spree, women! The winter collection is out! Winter clothes are hotttt!!!
4. A Santa hat!! Aint it cute!!
5. Ah, plum cake!:) Yummy in the tummy!!
6. Need I even start! From the hot Serena van der Woodsen and the hotter Nate Archibald, to the super nice Dan Humphrey and Vanessa Abrams. I even like the Rufus and Lily story! Its just Jenny Humphrey I can't stand. Oh, and that new Aaron guy too.
7. Watch this movie. Its really really nice. Not your usual sappy love story. I'm not a big Cameron Diaz fan, but this movie really took me by surprise. And, also watch Dear Frankie. Brilliant!
8. A Hundred Million Suns! Ah, I knew there would be some connection with the title. This album is just brilliant. Snow Patrol have done it again!
9. No, no don't get scared! This is Mii(pun intended:)) on the Wii! Wow! What a technological marvel, the Wii is! Technology is seriously awesome! Get yourself one of these and its quite literally the end of boredom and the start to awesomeness!
Ah man, I could only think of 9. I would love suggestions though..
Monday, December 1, 2008
1. I love how cold it is! (Though global warming is having its say for the past few years.) I love the dry cold without the out-of-the-ordinary rains we seem to be facing these days! Like how sunny summers with a little drizzle can make your day!
2. I love waking up in the morning and snuggling under the blankets because its soooooo cold!
3. Holidays!!!!! I've studied in Christian schools throughout, and they were really big on Christmas holidays! I've had holidays in December the last four years of engineering too, but they've been study holidays. Holidays, nevertheless..
4. Christmas!!! I love Christmas!! Ever since I was little, when my mum would place chocolates under my pillow, which I would gleefully find on Christmas morning! Then there were Christmas plays in school, and more chocolates! Teehee. Oh, and SECRET SANTA! I loved Secret Santa! How we would draw chits with people's names on them and send them 'secret' messages till Christmas day, even though we all knew whose name everyone had picked anyway! Sigh... I miss celebrating Christmas.
5. This year, added reason, because of Ghajini!! Go Aamir Khan!
6. Carols! I love em'!! From Silent Night to Rudolph. My favourite carol s Felis Navidaa, and While Shepherds watched their flocks by night..
7. New Years' Eve, exam or not the next day, I love calling people in the middle of the night and screaming, 'Haaaappppyyy Newwww Yeaaaarrrr!' (Thank Go we're done atleast on New Years' this time!!!)
8. My parent's anniversary! And soo many birthdays!! Happy birthday to all born in December!!
9. The end of another year, and the anticipation of a new year! And walking towards the end of VTU! (Though thats going to make me sob..)
10. Its December, and thats reason enough!!!!:):)
Happy December, all!!!

I give it a 4/5. Brilliant performances by Emily Mortimer, and Gerard Butler. And very good portrayal of Frankie by Jack McElhone. Its an old movie, I'm not sure if it was ever released in India. But its really good. With a very suitable music score. Even though the storyline was nothing like it, it reminded me of Juno. And it had some bits of Geography in it, which made me love it even more!! Rent a DVD and watch. I totally recommend.
P.S - Listen to Man and Wife - Michelle Featherstone. Really nice song.
Fine. Thats whats important now. The act was condemned, the media covered the entire story, politicians and actors(who were nowhere near the scene), expressed their views, the PM put forth a long(and boring) speech.. This is all we'll see in the coming week.
And then it'll stop. Just like that. Nothing will be done about it.
Why, why, why can't our country do something about it? Why can't we be active and take measures so that we are never in such a situation again! Look at India. Blasts in Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Surat, Jaipur, Hyderabad. And nothing was done! Nothing! No wonder Bombay was attacked! No wonder! We just sit back and watch as terrorists come bombing us. And condemn the attack. Thats it. Because condemning the attack is going to keep us safe. Could anyone find out the source and purpose of the blasts in the other cities? NO! Was anything done to ensure that something like the blast wasn't repeated somewhere else? NO!
Instead life went on. Which is a good thing. Life should go on. But life shouldn't go on as if nothing happened. Life should go on, with fear, with anger, with the feeling of revenge, to avenge what happened! Why is everyone being so passive!? I know, this is definitely not the time to strike up another war, considering the economic crisis. But it doesn't mean that we should wait forever! Peace is a virtue, like patience. But if we keep offering the other cheek, when we're slapped on one, we will be crushed! Why aren't the politicians doing anything to better the situation?? Why aren't they talking about further actions to be undertaken to make sure something similar is avoided?! Why is there only talk and absolutely no action!!!
WHY ISN'T ANYTHING BEING DONE?

He told me that he wanted help
Before his country dies..
This is taken from the song Bangladesh -George Harrisson. The first few lines were supposedly said to him by Pt. Ravi Shankar.
Its been nearly thirty years since, and it looks like people are saying the same thing again, just not sure who the plea is to be directed towards.
It so unsettling, so bloody unsettling, the things that are happening! Last night, when I heard, I only thought of it as minor attacks, like the ones in Bangalore. The morning came as a real shocker! It was still on!! The Taj, for Heaven's sake! The beautiful Taj! And CST. Seriously, haven't they done enough?! Hasn't that city been through enough!!? And it bounces back, EVERY SINGLE TIME! The initial blasts, the recent train blasts, everything. What does that say? You can't do nothing, you bastards! You cant do nothing! You can never conquer Bombay! Bombay shall always, always be alive! You terrorists will all die such painful deaths. Curses shall be upon you, curses of mothers whose sons and daughters you shot down, curses of wives whose husbands you took away.. And curses of children, oh yes, the curses of children, who you left orphaned! And you are going to die. Each one of you, but you knew that already. And your stupid demands will never be met!
Its just sad that our country, our fine country, is in such an impossible situation. Security wise. And everything points to the political system. Its true that the citizens are responsible for the political conditions, but what can be done, when each and every politician is corrupt. When all each can think of, is about his personal security, his money, his car, his safe, his bank account! And they're elected to support the country. There's a certain level of selfishness in all of us, but there's a fucking limit!
Even sadder is that, these bastard terrorists are educated. They're like us! Except they're so fucking retarded and brainwashed! They went to college like us, bunked classes, fell in and out of love, had fun. They were people. People like us. People who had a brain, and people who thought for themselves. Until they were taken over. Don't get me wrong. They are to blame. Not them, who got them brainwashed. They are to blame, whatever the reason might be, personal, political, whatever!
Whats scary is that, it could've been any place. Any city. Any building. Any person. After the Bangalore blasts, cars were checked. I'll admit, it was mighty inconvenient, but now I truly get why it was necessary. But its so carelessly done. Which terrorist, in his right mind would leave ammunition, in some place free for everyone to see! The security system needs some serious reconstruction!
I just watched the news, and someone on it said, Bombay might not recover. Oh no. Bombay is above everything, Bombay has a soul. Bombay will definitely bounce back. The incident will NEVER be forgotten, people will not stop talking about it, but, it will be healed! Bombay is awesome, Bombay is beautiful, Bombay will continue to be..
Take me away
To a place far away
So I may never return
To watch this world burn
Take me away
on a starry night
where the shadows shiver
at the gruesome sight
take me from this place
where all is still
the wails of despair
helpless and shrill
they beg for mercy
a crack of the whip
the pain is unreal
I see the flesh rip
Take me away
so I may never know
How many died
how many to go
the blood spatters
the bullets fly,
the earth-crimson red
ebony black-the sky
lay me to rest
in surreal peace
the chains the shackles
no escape no release
I look up at the highest pedestal
For hope and for light
A saviour for our souls
A freedom from this plight.

So let me tell you all the story of my awesome day..
Today was the first and last day of my internals, because, given that I'm awesome, I had to give just one paper this time. I did AWESOMELY, thank you for asking! If I don't get a 25, I'm going to seriously sue.
I made a new friend today! Guess who? My HOD! We're now tight. No, seriously. We had a one hour long chat today, about general stuff, wherein she asked me if she was strict. And then we had another twenty minute conversation where I pointed out that she was 'rigid' and not strict. There was also lots of laughing at her, with her!! I came out, scared of myself.
Then I watched Dostana with my friends. Perplexed, you were right! It was awesome!! And Urvashi is awesome!! We actually danced to Desi Girl! What a kickass song!!!! Its still running in my head. P and V were very embarrassed to be seen with us. Wow! Abhishek Bachchan is normally an ass, but he's seriously outdone himself in the movie! And Priyanka Chopra is good too. John Abraham cant really act, but he's done a decent job in the movie. The emotional scenes are a little dragging, but the movie is really good! Its totally nonsensical and total timepass. You come out feeling super good about yourself!! And wanting to dance!
I went to Corner House. This is what the title is all about. You know how people get high on alcohol, and do and say absolute crap! Crap that can totally be used to embarrass them!? Well something like that happened. Minus the booze.
But before you read ahead, let me warn you about something. I have a gift. I can make the funniest thing sound supremely unfunny. And what happened was really really funny!
There, I said it. Don't say I didn't warn you! So 'S' went crazy today!! Now, she has no idea I'm taking this online! She had Cake Fudge at corner house. Just that. And she totally lost it. Completely. She was throwing glasses of water on her boyfriend for absolutely no reason! And she did a 'dhak dhak' like step to indicate CPR. Then there was her talking about white 'chaddies'! OK, I'm going to stop, I'm ruining it already!
Anyway, here's some advice.
1. Watch Dostana.
2.Don't ever watch movies in Vision Cinemas.
3. Screw alcohol, drink chocolate sauce instead.
4. Make friends with your HOD!
Oh, oh and thanks A for the ice cream!!
*Ik lakh lakh pardesi girl, aint nobody liiike my desi girl*

DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION!!
The cool thing about this, is that, anyone can play it! Girl, or boy(though most I know, consider themselves too macho to indulge in it! They're all still dying to try though!!!), kid or adult, someone who can dance or someone who can't(trust me, this comes from someone who looks like a hippopotamus learning ballet! Not a pretty sight.), and a lot of other categories, I can't think of right now..
And the best part, dancing basically is an exercise right, so what a way to burn all of them calories away! Without even having to know how to dance. The only downside is that you'll be bad in the beginning, but then, in no time, you will be awesome!! Plus there are songs like Tubthumping and Saints go Marching too!! And plus its cheap, lol.
So put on your dancing shoes(or not!), and dance like no-one's watching!! *We'll be singing, when we're winning*
PS- Listen to Edge of the Ocean - Ivy. Brilliant

I hate the way you talk to me,
the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car,
I hate the way you stare.
I hate your big combat boots,
the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick,
it even makes me rhyme.
I hate the way you're always right,
I hate the way you lie.
I hate the way you make me laugh,
and even more when you make me cry.
I hate it when you're not around,
and the fact that you didn't call,
but mostly I hate that I don't hate you,
not even close,
not a little bit,
not even at all.

Probably the most thought provoking license plate during this time of the year for my MBA crazed friends! All the best y'all!!!
The super funky canvases I found(but couldn't buy). It doesn't look so great with the paper stuffed into it, but its quite awesome looking!
Esprit waistcoat. On display at Shoppers Stop. Oooooh lalaa!
Penn Badgley. Back off women. I've stuck by him ever since he was Scott Tucker. All mine!

Day 1. Traffic signal. Me at the steering wheel. Traffic signal turns green. Car refuses to move. I freak! Try starting the car several times, but it just refuses to budge! Panic attack slowly setting in. I call my dad, and he doesn't pick up the phone. Random guy on the road offers to push my car. I bring my car to neutral...wait, my car's already in NEUTRAL!! Stupidity at its peak!!
Wait, it gets better.
Day 3. I can't ind my Ipod. I've searched my room, my car, accused my parents, everything. Then in attempt to prove their innocence they decide to search for it. They find it lying on my bed. Under the covers. Sigh. I now have set a record.
Day 6. The usual left-right story. I'm horrible with directions! So when a friend told me today to take a left and I took a right, I displayed my directional disability! It was quite embarrassing.
Day 7. I lost 500 bucks today!! To pay for a Rs.10 item. Sigh.
OK, its all out here! Lets see if we can find anyone who can beat that!

You know whats difficult? Being around exes. Being around friends who're exes. Being around two people who're both your friends and are each other's exes. Especially when they're friends one moment and cannot stand each other the next! And when you haven't been particularly involved in this love-hate (?)relationship, and are informed merely minutes before you meet them, that you aren't allowed to make any inappropriate jokes about them! And we love inappropriate jokes!! No fair!!
You know what's really difficult? Shopping for someone who already has everything! By everything, I literally mean everything! Clothes, perfumes(and many of them, at that), a ka-zillion pair of shoes, expensive jewellry(not like I can afford that, anyway), awesome car accessories, everything! Suggestions are open here.
You know what's really really difficult? Trying to decide what the hell you want to do after your degree. Listening to options from everyone and everywhere and getting even more confused.(Like thats even possible!! Hey, S , special mention here;)! ) And especially relatives asking 'What are you planning to do, beta?' OK I know they mean well but its the worse question ever to be asked when you're in this situation! Well, obviously they don't know what the hell is going on in your head, but you don't have any space to think about that. In your head.
On the brighter side...
You know what's yummy??? Fisher Pizza Balls! They are super yummy, and you get them in the One Dollar Store in Commercial Street, Bangalore. *drools* Oh, and Magic Pops! The crackling ones.
You know what's heavenly? The Body Splash Peppermint fragrance. It smells absolutely delicious! I want!
You know what's/who's awesome? Rediscovering Jack Johnson. And Ben Lee. And Leonardo diCaprio. Body of Lies was just wow!( Yes, I watch a lot of movies!)
You know what's even more awesome? Shopping. Period.
You know what's the biggest timepass? Bangalore Mirror crossword. It has clues like, oldest restaurant in Bangalore, and all. Best way to pass time in a boring.. Who am I kidding? In all classes!
*end of post*
I'm finally up to date with GA, and I love what's happening!!!! The most recent hook-ups are adorable!

So, really.. What do people normally use a diary for?
To record events, to remember events and related stuff, right?
Not this one. Thanks to Benrik, we now have access to the world's funkiest diary!! Plus access to books like 'Lose Weight, get Laid, Find God'!
Our diary here, hardly has any place for normal diary stuff. Instead it focusses on things that make our seemingly boring lives super exciting! It begins, like all other diaries, with a personal details page. But which other diary have you seen, which has a claim to fame field? Awesome, eh?
Then come two pages containing the whackiest resolutions ever. Stuff like make a baby(OK that doesn's seem so whack, but the illustrations, no they aren't perverted, make them really entertaining!), have an uglify yourself week, be a genie etc. Then it is followed by pages further contributing to its awesomeness!
Buy the diary! You'll know what I'm talking about. Also visit the aforementioned site. It contains some of the most random blogs ever! The age of the revolutionary diary has arrived!

1. The most kick ass pack of cards I have ever laid eyes on. Yes, I am talking about a pack of cards, not the cure for cancer. But when you see, what I did, you will go WOW with wonder too!
2. The awesome-st card game in the world, and also the lamest. The easiest game, yet the hardest to understand(for a while, that is.). Absolutely nonsensical, but mind blowingly brilliant at the same time. We fondly call it, 'Quietly Keep it Down'! Thank you very much S, for introducing us to this senseless brilliance!
3. Madhur Bhandarkar is not all that. Fashion, I can safely say, SUCKED. Remember my Bachna Eh Haseeno review. Multiply that by three billion, four hundred thousand, two hundred and sixty nine, and you get Fashion. Three hours of physical, mental/emotional torture. The music was bad, the clothes weren't great, the concept was super-predictable and it was excruciatingly long! OK, the women are hot, but no person,(not even you boys) can take take this rubbish for three and a half hours. Kangana Ranaut cannot act to save her life, and Priyanka Chopra is so painfully boring, you will seriously hate yourself for sometime.
4. Roadside Romeo. Lets not even go there. Yes, I did watch the movie. Yes, it was a terrible mistake. Yes, I am quite lame. But it is definitely better than the aforementioned piece of crap.
5. I am not 'Gossip Girl' anymore. Pun intended. I used to know everything. I never was the 'social butterfly', but I attracted gossip like a magnet! Now, in contrast, I know everything about everyone last. Damn!
6. I suck at bowling. I am really, really, really bad!
7. Happy Halloween! (And, happy Independence Day, R!! Today is a day of celebration,!! *winks*) And also, Happy Birthday, S!!

That doesn't matter, really. What matters is that I am back to create an impact on the peace and quiet of the city(but the truth is, the city ain't that peaceful considering, a. its Diwali and b. Bangalore has changed. But thats not what this is about.. This is about me being back!! So yippieeee!!:))!
So one thing I did after coming back and unlocking my room etc. was check my blog. Before I sent out messages(but then again, messages charge 1 buck today.)!! But I truly did miss cluttering my very own cyber place(btw I hate the word cyber) with my senseless, self obsessed rubbish!! Wheeeee!! Hurray for blogs!
I rediscovered exhilaration today! My dad let me drive the Corolla today, and I can safely say that it has changed me. To be in a car thats going super fast is one thing, but to be behind the steering wheel when the speedometer hits a 150kmph is just beyond any feeling!! You must try it! Notice the number of exclamation marks?? Thats how excited I am/was!!
Anyway, my mom is throwing slight fits and asking me to unpack now, so I gotta go..
Oh, and happy Diwali!!:)

- The pedestrians - The footpath is made for a reason. Use it! Don't blame me later, if you don't and I run over you.
- The autodrivers - Your auto-rickshaws aren't as tiny as you believe them to be. They cannot, and will not fit through any space!
- The bus drivers - Fine, agreed. Your vehicles are massive. But don't take in so many people that it seems like they're going to fall on me when I drive past you! Also your turns must not be so far out into the road. Maybe my father should teach you how to drive!
- The two wheelers - You see that little gap between my car and the guy's in front? No, there's a high high probability you are not going to fit through that. So don't try, and make me yell at you!
- The truck drivers - You do not belong on the roads. Period. Stick to the highway!
Finally, the car drivers(this applies to me, sometimes) - Stick to your lane(unless you are really late for college/work), and use the indicator, always! (How boring!)
Thank you for taking time out to read this.
- Your friendly neighbourhood traffic police.

And Alex Karev is also so WOW! Love the new look, love his story, love the facial hair, love everything about him! I'm hoping the series gets him and Izzie back together(or have I not gotten to that part yet? No, don't tell me!!).
But it kinda sucks that there's no more Preston Burke. I really liked his character, and his story with Oh.
And that brings us to Brendan Fehr! Wowwie! Double triple wow! I must admit I'm a little late on watching Roswell. I didn't watch it too regularly back when I was in school, but now I'm on it. And that boy, Michael Guerin, gives me the goosebumps! Its incredible how rebellious and dangerous he is! I want to be with an alien, man!!

Hobbes: Well, say the object of your affection walks by..
First your heart falls into your stomach, and splashes your innards. All the moisture makes you sweat profusely. The condensation shorts the circuits to your brain and you get all woozy! When your brain burns out altogether, your mouth disengages, and you babble like a cretin till she leaves!
Awwwwww! This is, by far, the cutest thing I've ever read!!

*like anyone cares*
But this my blog, so who cares about you!
Its worse than muck,
What horrible luck,
With this subject we are stuck!
Our teacher is a whor@,
No doubt, the biggest bore,
I'd like to pin her to the floor,
Sock it to her once, and then some more!!
AJAX, XML, Flex and SOAP,
That we can shift to DOS, we live in hope,
Or else before internals, again we'll mope,
As for externals, there's definite need of dope!
So Open Office is quite awesome! I've always used Microsoft Word, and don't quite like the 2007 version. I mean, its quite cool, but its very cluttered. I like simple. Where I don't have to change my spacing with every paragraph and go to a different menu altogether for a slide show(referring to power-point here). I did try installing the 2003 version, but that didn't work either. Plus I kind of installed Windows over Linus(yes, Linus. I call him Linus, and Linus rocks!) on my system, and now I'm stuck with Vista. But Open Office is quite cool:)
Why I'm using Open Office when I can use Blogger? Because in my house we have a system. I get the broadband connection Mondays through Thursdays, and my brother gets it over the weekend. And today is Friday. This came to being after much hassle, and torment. I keep telling my mom, you should've stuck to having just one kid, but no-one listens to me. Oh no no no. Anyway, I'm not complaining, just that my downloads are always rudely interrupted, and that, is not cool.
Highlights of the week. Or rather, the much needed extra long weekend. I went to Kerela. It wasn't the usual hill-station, coffee estate trip. Rather, it was a temple trip. Guruvayur. I don't know what it is with my parents, but they have this temple thing going on. I suggested a family vacation in the hols. Mom was thrilled at the idea. She asked me if I had a place in mind. I promptly said, Bangkok! She seemed happy. I'll ask dad and tell you. Result: Guruvayur now, and next week, Tirupathi. Normally, I'm not a very temple person, but this place has something about it. Guruvayur, that is. I love the place. I don't mind standing in those long, crazy queues. I really don't. Plus I love elephants. They're the cute-st things ever. And there are loads of them in Kerela.
Anyway, I'm back. I'm dying of this nasty cold, and totally sleep deprived, but I'm home, nursing myself back to my super-awesome self. And like I said, today is Friday. 10th October. Much awaited by me, and my friend, for one main reason. The book launch! eM's book launch! No cold was going to stop me from going. I love eM. I have spent many nights reading her blog, when in fact I should've been studying. So, yeah, I went. And got a signed copy of her book(yippieeee!:))! I wanted her to sign it as, 'I hope this book is as awesome as you are,' but then I thought, too much. Lol. So, I now have a signed copy of 'You Are Here', signed, 'I hope this lives upto the blog'. Yes, I met eM!!! I now also have two seasons of Grey's anatomy, and two seasons of Desperate Housewives!
Such a girl!
Since I can't use the internet to 'publish' this(publish is such a weird term to use, here), I'm going to wait till the rest of my weekend to see how it goes. I'm supposed to be going on this trip tomorrow with some friends, but the decision will be taken tomorrow by my mom, depending on 'The Common Cold' crisis. Hope something works out! *Fingers crossed*
Saturday. I didn't go.:( Woke up with a horrible head pain. Bright side. My brother isn't home. So I can use the internet before he gets home!
So, voila!P.S - Listen to 'Look at her Face' - The Coral Sea. Awesome song!

Also, sing this as you read. Tune - This old man, he played one...
There is M, M speaks fast, If M hits you, you'll need a cast!
But M is actually really really sweet, I love M and M loves me!:)
Then there's K, K's so sweet! K 's the cutest thing you've seen!
But lately K's started calling people fat, but people bug her big time, tit for tat!
Here comes R, we call her nice! R is awfully scared of mice!
R is really ticklish, and makes funny sounds, also psychos make her frown!;)
S likes to say that she is cool. Hot men around, then S will drool.
S is my partner-bitch in crime, Dempsey is mine, S - get in line!
Say hello to E, E loves the sea! E absolutely loves 'elneer',
But E is strong, so people beware. E does funky things to her hair!
There's another S, this one's whack! She's always talking, yakkity yak!
S is boy-crazy, but S also loves girls! S can belly-dance, S can twirl!
S no. 3, weird as can be, total sweetheart, needs to be set free!
S is complicated, S thinks way too much, S needs to get 2p messaging with Hutch!
(Bear with me, for this came out in all of thirty minutes.)
But let me tell you a story of a dumbass who was supposed to give her TOEFL yesterday, a.k.a ME! The exam went fine, thanks for asking, but I redefined the word dumbass, in the process.
It all began when I decided to drive to my exam center. Which was in Kormangala. Which is pretty far away from my house. The drive was fine. It was a Sunday. 8 in the morning. No traffic. Nice weather. Nice music. Basically it was quite perfect, devoid of any tension, which is awesome before any exam. But, what is my life without any form of totally unwanted excitement?? Not my life!
So, 8.30 and I've reached the center. I call my mom to say I've found the place, and reply to a few 'all the best' messages. My mom asks me to verify if I've found the right place. So I walk to the building and see Idomain Technologies, my exam center. Satisfied, I walk back to my car to take out my passport.
'Oh shit, she forgot her passport at home!!'
No, no. As far as the stuff required to take the next day goes, my mom, the responsible one, made sure I had everything with me. My passport, a bottle of water, an apple in case I got hungry. I know I can skip the details, but then, where's the fun. So anyway, moral of this paragraph, I had my passport.
But I forgot my keys in the car! And my passport was in the car! And I live 20kms away from Kormangala! And I had an exam in an hour! I immediately call my mom, who tells me to worry about the car later, and first go give the exam. Then I tell her that my passport is in the car, and she flips. She decides to come to Kormangala with the spare keys, and I quickly give her the address to the place. I also asked her to bring my dad's phone (my mom doesn't carry a phone) and press the green button in case I call. It was 9.
9.10. I called her again. This time, my dad picks the phone, tells me not to worry and that they'd be there soon. I asked them where they were. Near our house, but we'll be there in a half hour. That would be 9.40. And the reporting time was 9.30. Unfortunately, I had no Ipod, so I couldn't even calm myself down with music. So I went to the center, notified them about this peculiar situation, and proceeded to type out the form. A lot of things are running in my head. How I'm going to get belted at home. Think of all the words that are going to be thrown my way, i.e irresponsible, careless, jackass(from my brother). Time passes quickly though. Phew!
9.30. My parents are in Kormangala. Yippie! I walk a bit to find them. Totally relieved. My dad insists on unlocking the car, and gives me my passport. Then they wait for me to remove the keys, lock the car, walk to the center, and then they leave.
9.45. Test begins.
Yes, the word you are looking for is, dumbass!

So when a friend called me today to say that he had gotten a job offer away from here, I just wasn't ready to believe it. And the worst part is, away from here just isn't in another city in another state, but in another country all together. That really blows! Its worse than George Clooney, acting as Batman, Its worse than having to hear Meredith Grey's voice. Its worse than the end of the final Harry Potter book. Its worse than worse.
A few minutes into the conversation, and I finally decided to believe that this wasn't another person trying to make a fool out of me, and this indeed was happening. It took me a good fifteen minutes to bring myself to congratulate him. I know I'm super proud of him, but I can't bring myself to see it. I know I should be happy for him, but I can't bring myself to genuinely feel it.
*this sounds way too corny*
Well, I am happy for him. I just don't see why I can't be happy for him working in the same city. The good thing is that he will be flying down quite often, so that really is a good thing...I guess..
So, here's to a new beginning for him, and wishing him all the good luck in the world!

that we started in the middle..
Or do you ever have the sense
that we are lying, just a little..
I mean come on
its not like we have known ourselves that long
And I cant say I really blame you
for being bored with the beginning..
Always staring at the score
to figure out whose barely winning.
but dont you know
that there is a reason strong moves slow
And I'm ok.. if you're ok.. with wasting time..
But when you trace
you always see the bottom line
We are tracing... I hope you know... we are tracing
And if you want to know the moment
I knew that I was still alone
I found I never learned your number
I only stored it in my phone
you think by now
I'd know the shape of calling home..
And I'm ok.. if you're ok.. with wasting time
And when you trace
you always see the bottom line..
We are tracing.. I hope you know.. We are tracing
We're both alone..
We are tracing
Did you ever get the feeling
that we started in the middle..
Or do you ever have the sense
that we are lying just a little..
I mean come on
Its not like we knew ourselves that long...
