6 pm come soooooooon!

So here I am sitting in office on a Saturday and wondering what to do…. I don’t mind sitting here though, everybody is so relaxed and nobody ever works, or maybe they do work, only it doesn’t seem like that. It’s actually quiet and peaceful; I guess everybody is pretending to work… like me. I have a huge list in my head about the things I want to do tomorrow, and going to the library tops that list. I just finished reading “Circle of Friends” by Maeve Binchy and I loved it. It’s a story about two girls who grow up together in a convent school and when its time to go to university in the big town of Dublin, they discover gradually that they can depend on each other and their convent school upbringing to see them through the trying times. It was beautifully written, and it struck so close to home.
I picked up another M&B book along with this Binchy book and I am going to return it tomorrow without bothering to complete it. I read the first few pages and I wanted to find that author and ask her if they actually paid her money to write crap like this. I don’t know how such books get published…. Anyway, I could do better by picking up a comic book next time; at least they don’t assault the senses.
A few funny quotes I collected over the week.....
“We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


A man of great common sense and good taste - meaning thereby a man without originality or moral courage.
George Bernard Shaw

All my life affection has been showered upon me, and every forward step I have made has been taken in spite of it.
George Bernard Shaw

Americans adore me and will go on adoring me until I say something nice about them.
George Bernard Shaw

An asylum for the sane would be empty in America.
George Bernard Shaw

I would like to take you seriously, but to do so would be an affront to your intelligence.
George Bernard Shaw

I'm an atheist and I thank God for it.
George Bernard Shaw

When I was younger I could remember anything, whether it happened or not.”
Mark Twain

hey karen u want some really good reading material? u should start getting interested in works of conspiracy theorists. u get ur decent mix of fact and fiction. its far better than mnb and also much more interactive. im currently reading a book the biggest secret by david icke. what he posists is we're ruled by a superior race of martians and interstellar reptillian beings who posses human bodies. on the whole his ideas seem very ridiculous, but he does present some very interesting points to note. like how all the major religions of the world originate from the same region in a place called sumer. and how the studies of the structure of about 1800000 types of trees all follow a smilar pattern of what u find in this same region. and this was the place tat was first uncovered after the great flood of noah (although his reason for the flood greatly differs from the story we read in the bible). so basically he says the world as we know it today started there. this book should keep u entertained for a few days and dependin on ur belief system a few years even. i mean these books are good if u know how to just take the meat and leave out the bones yea. im gonna read bout a vatican conspiracy theory next and ill keep u posted k.

and hey add this to ur list of quotes if ur gonna get with readin bout these guys. its an infamous line tat will always appear at some point in one form or another.

anonymous, ur kidding right?? go get a life.

kavidey some women authors eally have no sense, whether its M&B o not. im redin this book caled still water by tami hoag. bout a murdr that takes place in a small town. since its written by a woman, there has to be a romantic angle. the sheriff, instead of searchin for the murderer, is busy making out with main suspect. all because of 'chemistry' i mean come on!!!! i cn write better books.

guys be nice to each other...

Ryan, I am actually waiting to read a book titled 'Jesus lived in India'. This guy at work was telling me about it... apparently Jesus came to Kashmir and died an old man. After I am done with that I shall check out this martian/reptillian race book by David Icke. When I am done reading books like this, I will finally be able to say, "I'm an atheist and I thank God for it."

Megh's, if only Tami Hoag could meet David Icke... they would weave a totally mindblowing story, which I am sure Pushpak will love and start raving about it.

you guys are going to get me into trouble one of these days...

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…
