Of Silvertongues and Dustfinger and Jamie and Barney... its Legendary....

Oh, I love this movie... its exactly what I dream about, seeing your characters come to life... I mean literally like in the movie. Wouldn't that be totally mindblowing, imagine meeting Arutha -The Prince of Crydee, Sherlock Holmes, Calvin, Rhett Butler, Aragon, Jane Eyre, Captain Nemo and the countless other folks I have fallen in love with over the years. Now I can't wait to read all the three books: Inkheart, Inkspell, and Inkdeath... Among the many sagas or trilogy's or sequences that have come out so far, none actually compares to the Magician. This is a book I found long back when I was 16 or something in an old dusty trunk... the front cover itself was enticing, there was this weird palatial structure set against a strikingly brilliant sky, I think that was when it struck... the 'love at first sight' concept. Anyway, the little story at the back was even more enchanting, it spoke of an alien world and magic and warriors... so I got lost in it. I carried that book with me when I left home for the first time... and now its here with me, to read and hold whenever life seems to get too enormous to fathom.

Back home I actually watched a lot of TV shows during my vacation, thanks to Nam... she still maintains her role as my TV and Movie guide. She had all the seasons of 'One Tree Hill' and 'How I Met Your Mother', I saw just the last seasons and its crazy... everybody sleeps with everybody else, yet somehow these shows are entertaining enough with their witty dialogues, soundtracks and the way the characters undergo major makeovers every season... its fun. Anyway, the only characters I really like in One Tree Hill are Jamie and Brooke and sometimes Nathan Scott. Jamie is so cute, I mean you can't help but like him... he's adorable and his expressions are awesome, he's one cool kid. I wonder how much he is making at this young age...

Barney is another interesting character from 'How I whatever'... he has all these weird ideas and notions in his head and he is always doing stupidly funny things, and he really has some hilarious lines in the show... watch these videos, its legen... wait for it... dary, Barney cracks me up...

Thanks Pushpak... that was extremely thoughtful of you. Doesn't make a difference to me though.

I have yet to read the INK series... I've read some of her other books... she's good!

One of my favourite Barney scenes was that monologue play he did to get back at Lily. It was so funny!
Check out The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon Cooper is one of the best sitcom characters ever invented.

Santhi Nilayam, School for the Mentally Challenged...

After a long long time, I visited the special school I used to work in, and the kids have all grown up...tiny tots now taller than me and sprouting facial hair!!! I was flummoxed... gosh, time changes everyone and everything. Wonder what changes they saw in me... anyway, I was just happy to be backthere. Went early to catch sight of that yellow school bus turning the corner and to watch all the kids tumbling out. While I was working there, that yellow bus turning the corner always marked the start of an exciting day. Right from the moment the kids hit the ground, the fun starts... that place will always be shrouded in hues of warm sunshine in my memory, it is a great place to be.  On the way to school, came across a few students... The special school, Santhi Nilayam (means Abode of Peace)  Great place...  The school bus and the kids... The assembly itself is heartwarming, a kid recites the prayers and the others repeat after him, in their characteristic sounds and half utterances.  T…

The Ten Commandments of Christmas

Last Sunday in church, leaflets with the following 'Christmas Ten Commandments' were handed out and the parish priest Fr. Joe Andrews discussed them with the congregation.   You shall not leave 'Christ' out of Christmas, making it 'Xmas'. Christ is the reason for the season.You shall prepare your soul for Christmas. Spend not so much on gifts that your soul is forgotten (a good confession is a nice way to prepare your hear for Christmas)You shall not let Santa Claus replace Christ, thus robbing the day of its spiritual reality. (Prepare yourself with prayer and the Word of God.)You shall not neglect your church. Its services highlight the true meaning of the season. You shall not neglect the needy. Share they blessings with the many who will go hungry and cold unless you are generous.You shall not neglect thy family during this season. You shall not forget the elderly and those who are lonely at Christmas time.You shall not value gifts received by their cost. E…

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…
