And nobody was named Fred....

There was a Hugo and a Rosie... but no Fred. Oh well, it's over... that is more than enough.

So finally the Harry Potter series has come to an end. And I did read all the books... but somehwere between the third and the fourth book, all the success went to her (Rowling's) head and she started churning out lousy sequels. I mean the first book was really nice, stuck to important stuff... and did not ramble on unnecessarily. I liked the third book the best, cause of Sirius... I thought he was the most amazing character, he was portrayed as this handsome reckless and brave guy, rugged looking but great looking, kinda like Aragon in the movie, "Lord of the rings" or Oded Fehr in "The Mummy Series". So it was only natural that I stopped watching the Harry potter movies, after I saw who they had cast to play the role of Sirius Black, some demented looking guy. Just look at the pictures!!!

Anyway, this last book was just too much... there was too much of everythin. It was kinda like the movies Sivaji and Spiderman 3, where everythin was blown out of proportion. The only thing I really found interesting in the book was the escape of the seven potter's... that was a brilliant idea.
So, ending in the words of my sister Nameeta....
"im going to write the countinuing series of harry potter... and in the first chapter of the first book harry potter will die.. his own children will kill him for having such a pathetic life!! "

hey i liek harry potter! the readson she was rambling was cause this is the last book of the series, so she's gotta tie up the loose ends. or else ull blame her for writing a complete book.

haha! someone give her food ! she is hungry
hey candice, there was an article about Harry Potter in the newspapers, did you read that? It goes on to say that harry became on auror, hermoine joined some "rights for the lesser creatures" movement, stuff like that. The world was a nice bright and happier place after the death of Lord Voldemort.

Oh yeah megh's, nam showed me that chinese looking guy on TV once, he is undeniably cute!!!

Anju, it was okay, but I wouldn't be able to read it all again and Gitu's funny...

Saj, have you been to town hall often?

Honeybee, its not that bad... it is in fact really interesting, except when it begins to drag at a few places.

Chronic Writer, aren't you the one who commented somewhere about daniel stripping for a show...

Nam, calm down....

The Danny effect and the Cooper effect

With all the free time I have now (thanks to Cooper) I thought of writing something here.  This is Cooper, a friend's dog, and whenever I go home to Nagercoil, we generally hang out together, talking and taking Cooper for long walks in the colony. This time was no different, we were on our walk when this stray little street dog started barking and I was holding cooper's leash... my hand in that loop when Cooper suddenly became way excited than usual and took off after the stray like Flash on steroids. He dragged me along and I couldn't keep up; I stumbled, fell on the bad road and bruised myself.  And since I had nothing better to do, I made a collage of the wounds to send to my sister... who found it hilarious that I fell. So anyway, went to the doc, got my tetanus shot and now I'm just taking it easy for the next few days. And one person has been constantly on my mind since this incident, Danny.

I met Danny about 12 years ago in Santhi Nilayam, the special school I …

Hair messed up

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…
