Today was a good day!!!:):)

Come get some??

Remember Nelly Furtado? No, not the promiscuous, made-over, Courtney Cox look-alike Nelly Furtado, but the old one. The Nelly Furtado who sang about being like a bird and the other zippy, peppy songs that me as a kid used to listen to..whose lyrics seemed playfully innocent at the time.

Well, that changed!

No, not Nelly! Well, she did too, but what I mean here is my interpretation of her songs. There was 'Turn off the Lights', remember? Just recently a friend and I were singing the song, and we both stopped at the same line, not knowing the complete lyrics. After midniiight, morning will come and the day will see......?
I figured the next line had something to do with the rising sun or something of the sort..but when I went home and listened to song, I realized she was talking about someone 'getting some'!! Woah! OK I know its not a big deal, but the little kid in me was in total shock!! To think, the whole time I'd thought it was a song about some chick who was scared of the dark or something(OK thats not what I thought it was, but it seems appropriate, considering the title). And it actually was about some guy trying to have his way with the girl! Jeez!

Talk about ruined childhood!


I was listening to this song today and it hit me how apt it was. In my case, that is. How sometimes I feel lost and without any direction. How sometimes nothing feels right. How sometimes we want to see the tiny ray of sunshine. And how sometimes we want to think the exact opposite of what we want happening, just to keep ourself safe. 

Tracing - John Mayer

Do 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 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...

6.Favourite drink: Grand Martini, currently. 
7.Dream vacation: Spain. Ooh la laaa!

I just looked outside and its yellow!! Not black, or blue or normal coloured, but yellow. Like the Coldplay song! 

I came along, I wrote this post for you
It was called Yellow!:):)

Sitting, waiting..wishing

This week was supposed to be awesome.

Today wasn't.

Ok well, the week was supposed to be awesome mainly because I wanted it to be. But one day into it and I don't feel too great. It was fun and all, but it wasn't all that, y'know.. Maybe its because college sucks the fun out of everything. Maybe its because you gave one insignificant thing a little more thought than you should have, and that is killing you now. Maybe that thing wasn't insignificant after all(see what I mean?). Maybe its because things don't happen the way you want them to. Maybe its because things and people around you let you down. Maybe you aren't happy with things happening around you. So many maybes..

The creepiest thing is, I just read my facebook horoscope and its scarily accurate. To the last detail. Like they predicted everything based on what was going to happen to me. I should've just read that and figured that was today was just going to be ho hum. But I somehow think there's no fun in that. I like reading my horoscope at the end of the day to see how true it turned out to be. Ok this paragraph had no connection whatsoever with the previous one.

Ah, well, I guess tomorrow will be better. *fingers crossed*

So I might go to Udaipur!!! On a holiday with friends!! In January..I know thats eons away.. But I've almost gotten permission!!! This is SO AWESOME!!! I just cant wait to go on my trip!!! (To be sung like 'I just cant be wait to be king') And my mum is almost OK with the other trip with my other friends too! 5 months to go..but its going to be so worth the wait!!

I'm not going to call this post 'random' even though it pretty much is.

Some truly sucky things..

1. College on Saturdays!
2. College. Period.
3. Mass bunking, travelling 15kms to get home, only to realize most of the class attended anyway. B%$#@%*!!!
4. Monday mornings.

Things that make the above sucky things not-so-sucky.

1. Swimming! The best stress buster!
2. Food.
3. Let-offs.
4. Indijoes, Old Madras Road, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Cocktails on the house for women.
5. The Wii!
6. Tabasco, the cutest doggie in the world!!!
7. Pepperoni.

Wow, the not-so-sucky things outnumber the sucky things. That must mean life is gooooood!


Realizations in the past three weeks.

1. Carpool=Reaching college late.
2. Final year makes me sad:(
3. Phoonkh=Not to be watched, unless you're watching it alone for Rs. 500,000.
4. GIMP is a lot of fun!!
5. Lock-picking involves a lot of planning. A LOT!
6. Movies are not to be watched on Fridays, or over the weekend.
7. Pubs get really boring after a while, and smoking, drinking and smoking up all the time is not fun!
8. Butta(Roasted corn) is awesomeness redefined!

Waaaaaaaaaa:( Sob sob sob...

This post is going to be relatively sad.

I'm not big on adjusting to change. In fact I hate when people change, things around me change, and everything becomes different. 

It totally blows!!

One of my best friends is flying back to the US today. I just went and met him, and it really sucks to say goodbye! Again. I went to meet him with his girlfriend, and it was just tooooo sad! I tried to steal his passport and ticket, but the smart guy kept it far away from me! I hope it rains so hard his flight gets cancelled! (OK call me immature, but I really couldn't give a damn. This is one of my moody and impossible phases.) Even though he was here for quite sometime, he was almost always busy and hardly met us, and is going away so soon!

This sucks!!!

I'm happy..i'm feeling glad..
Got sunshine.. In a bag!
I'm useless, but not for long..
The future is coming on!

Now normally, I'm not a big fan of the Gorrilaz, but this song has that 'thing' about it y'know..

Anyway.. I'm happy I'm a crazy person. I'm happy I'm a freak sometimes! I'm happy I'm moody and impossible when I'm moody and impossible! I'm happy I'm all la di daa now! I'm happy I'm happy almost all the time! I'm happy my friends are who they are. I'm happy I'm me!!

I've said happy so many times in my head, that now it feels like its not a word at all! 

This is kind of a sequel to the Q post, isn't it? Lol.
I'm happy..feeling glad:):)

I wanted to blog about this earlier but for some reason, kept putting it off. 
Actually, the reason is that its frickin freaky!!!
So, its common knowledge(for anyone knows who me, that is), that I don't pay attention in class. Occasionally there's the doubt-asking, so that the prof believes that I was listening in class so I get my attendance for the hour I wasted. But otherwise, when I'm not discussing current events of importance(gossipping!), I like to draw. OK, enough about that..

Something crazy happened in class a couple of days back!

So, the other day, I was sitting two benches ahead of where I normally sit. And was in the midst of drawing this abstract pattern. Making the long story short, the bell rang and I couldn't complete it. Here's what I drew.


So, the next day, in the midst of my other favourite passtime in class i.e talking, I happened to glance through another friend's notebook. AND HERE'S WHAT SHE'D DRAWN!!!   


I'm serious. I almost had a heart attack when I saw what she'd drawn! It was the same thing!!! The only difference was that she'd drawn more than me. The pictures aren't clear, because the camera on my phone sucks. The day I began to draw this, I wasn't sitting anywhere near her. And after that, I met her only the next day! And there's no way she could've seen my book, because it was safe in my bag!

This was so freaky, I refused to talk to anyone after this happened. Initially, everyone thought this was a gag we were pulling on them, but after they found out that we weren't lying and the freak incident had actually happened out of coincidence, they were convinced that this was the coolest thing they'd ever seen!

I for one, do not think its cool. From any angle.

Its bloody freaky!

Does anyone have any logical explanation for this, because I'm all out of answers?!

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

OK I am going to try..

So there's this 'Q'. Now, Q is basically everything you've been looking for. Q is funny, though sometimes Q cracks some very stupid jokes. Q is smart, sometimes bookish-ly, mostly otherwise. Q is also quite talented! Q can be very off sometimes, so phased out and indifferent, you can't really figure out what the hell is going on in Q's mind! Q will cheer you up when all seems wrong, Q will compliment you when Q appreciates something about you. Q also gets really worked up before some major event is going to happen. Q has a decent taste in music. 

Q is pretty much happy all the time. Q is crazy, and Q will sometimes do really stupid things. Q will also make you do really stupid things. Q hates when things get complicated, Q really prefers when things are nice and simple.

Q has nice hair!:)

Q is basically awesome!

So, don't you think Q is oh-so perfect?!

Of course you do.

Q is me.

Oh I totally forgot, Q is very very very modest. ;)
I can never write about my A's and K's. Its weird, I can't even if  I want to. Its funny, because no-one know of this blog. And its not fair, because it makes me look chicken(which btw, I am:().

A friend and I were talking about these other blogs where people can actually bring themselves to write about stuff going on in their lives, and in the lives of people around them. My friends would never speak to me again if I ever blogged about their social life. Blogging about random things bout them would probably be flattering, but something like, 'P and K got back...again!', would just get me some very very rude stares! 

Ah and then, there's always the option of blogging about me. If I ever plan on doing that, then I'm pretty darn sure that all the fun will completely be sucked out of my life, and my already flimsy social life will be on a standstill! The most personal thing I can probably say is, 'Yayy I got my hair cut', or something of the sort. *Sigh*

So here's to them, who can blog about anything and everything. I bow to you, because you are truly something else! Cheers!:)

I love love me....

So today I saw a gay guy!!!!

I have no idea why I'm so excited. But I've never seen a gay guy before!! Sure, there are gay characters on TV shows, and there are guys in college who look gay, and some who act gay and some who are better off gay..but this guy was actually gay!!! 

A friend of mine decided to get her hair cut, so we were at this salon. And he was sitting there. I didn't notice him in the beginning. No-one did. Then later this other girl started talking to him. Now, a straight boy goes to a salon with a girl, only for two reasons.
1. He is totally hitting on her.
2. He's her husband!!

So you cant call it eavesdropping, because the two of them weren't exactly whispering to each other across the room, but three minutes into their conversation and anyone could tell he wasn't her significant other. It went something like this:

Boy: I was looking at this fashion magazine...
(No straight boy looks at a fashion magazine!!!!)

Boy: So have you been following the Olympics?
Girl: Do I look like a girl who's interested in sports?
Boy: (laughs) Good question..
Girl: So, have you?
Boy: Same question as yours (giggles)

(Such a give-away.)

At this, my friend and me looked at each other and all doubts were confirmed!
Later, I asked her, "Are you sure he was....?" "Gay?", she completed my sentence, "D-uh, he was more feminine than both of us together!!" 

OK, so I don't know how to end this post, but I saw a gay guy!!

PS - I have absolutely nothing against gay people. Just that I've never met one in person, so I was damn excited!

I solemnly swear...

So put on a party hat and bring in the new year!! Rather, new academic year!! 

The multiple exclamation marks might lead you to ask one question. 'Why so excited?' If you've watched 'The Dark Knight' you will read the 'Why so...' line in your mind exactly how Joker says 'Why so serious...' That was a very random thought which had no reason to be there. But I felt like it anyway!

Yeah, so if you're still reading this you're probably thinking, 'Why on earth is she happy about college reopening??' To be really honest, the same question is looming in my head, and I am nowhere close to the answer. I woke up this morning, totally sleep deprived and frowning and wondered just what I had done to enrage the gods! But then, as the day passed, the mood started changing. Again, no idea.

Ok digression.. The reason I really began to write this post is that I decided to make resolutions. A little late in the year, I know. But remember the whole 'new academic year' bit?


1. Read. More than last year. More than text books. More than words! (Ah, it was just so tempting to add the last bit!)

2. Following 1...get down to finishing Shantaram. I've spent more than 8 months on the book, and nowhere close to finishing it.

3. Do not get involved in anyone's personal life. And even if they ask for your opinion, pretend like you don't hear them.

4. Get involved in my personal life. :)

5. Learn to keep secrets. 

6. Watch Dexter. I've heard wayy too much about the show!

7. Be extremely candid! Say what you need to, want to, have to say! Its exhilarating! Thank you, John Mayer!

8. Save up and go for an expensive dinner with friends, when all is rainbows and butterflies again! :)

9. Take more photographs wherever I go!

10. Bungee jump! (This has been in all my resolution lists till date.)

11. Tell more people of this blog. Currently, its just you, me and Dupree. No, seriously!

12. Learn a foreign language. 

Ok now I'm running out of things to do in the next 365..Will keep y'all updated as and when I think of stuff!
