Mamma Mia, the Musical

I happened to catch the musical show 'Mamma Mia' this Sunday and it was fun... anything with ABBA songs is bound to be fun. I liked the person who played Donna the best, she fit the role perfectly. All the singing and dancing was great... it was infectious, I enjoyed the entire show. Tonio on the other hand, kept asking me every half hour when it would get over... I think the only character he liked was the drunken priest ;o)
Mental note to self: Guys who listens to Eminem, 50 cent, Metallica, Linkin Park and the like are probably not gonna like going to a live musical, their taste lies on an all together different level... which is actually good. On another note, I also think there is something wrong with guys who listen to boy bands, it's kinda weird... don't you think? Anyway, all psychoanalysis babble aside here are a few pix's...

Here they are singing and dancing...
Here is Donna and the men in her past...
The church, the wedding the altar...
This is my favourite ABBA song....

Hmmm,

I am sure the musical was great. But the psychoanalysis part was a bit out of place. Boys will be boys and men will be men. Many of us try to emulate the rock stars and rappers and some of us also play and sing in school/college/church choir bands. Unfortunately it ends with that and we never get a chance to cut out albums. Perhaps it is this tryst and memory of an unrealized dream that continues to make us listen to the boy-bands.

Have fun,

Tonio, right back at you...

Pushpak, how you doin?

Mahesh, I didn't mean it that way... its just that when guys start raving about nick carter or ronan keating, then there has to be something wrong with them.

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…
