How to Lose Friends and Alienate People...

Actually, a diet will shut them bi**hes up, but who am I to say ...

(Even though I did not mean that, I will watch my back from now on. Also, employ food tasters to ensure I don't get poisoned. And yes, have to dust off my bulletproof jacket.)


Footprints in the sands of time ...

Footprints in the sands of time ...

Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time ;

Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.

Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate ;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.
~ H.W. Longfellow - A Psalm of Life

Sometimes self deprecating humor gets by as the most sincere kind.


Because objects in the rearview appear closer than they are....

So we are almost halfway through june, halfway through the year. Just spent 30 mins cleaning up my other gmail inbox, specifically, the chat histories, and boy does it feel good. You have never truly moved away while it is still visible in the rearview.

On the whole these six months have been better than the last ... and I hope this trend continues.

While I am typing this, the cloud cover gathers in the hope of an impending shower. 'June skies' was the phrase ... a long time ago. It means nothing to me now.



Put you're money where your mouth is ...


The misplaced apostrophe syndrome has reached epidemic proportions ..

FFS, you're = you are.


Question about Life, the Universe and Everything

Well, at least it comes after 'Life' and 'Free Time' ....


Spring Cleaning

Its that time of the year again....

It is crunch time. Clearly the moment of reckoning is upon me.

Question: Do I delete the Google Reader mails or not?



Get one, get the other?

Now that the elections are over and the BJP has lost, comprehensively, suddenly L.K. Advani's genial face has disappeared from 'net. Especially from the google reader feeds, where *every single* item would be appended by a 'lkadvani.in' advertisment.

But then, there is never a dull moment in cyberspace, so I now have this. New 'split screen' arrangement, presumably to bombard us with 2x ads in the same space.

I wonder what sort of algorithm pitches Arranged Marriages along with Rigid Inflatable Boats ... but there must be something to it. Surely.

But, I for one, think that the 'You're in Control' slogan is much more at home on the other half of the screen.
