Woo-Hoo.... and so the long week end begins.


Can't wait for this break.


TIME TO PARTY




Thursday, 27 May, 2004

Well, what can I say.


Been real busy lately. Work work and then some.

There is a silver lining to this all... My mom might come to the US soon and I might actually see her after an 11 month gap.


Yipeeeeeee

India has a Muslim president, a Sikh Prime minister, and a Christian leader of the largest political party in India. This speaks very highly of tolerance in India.







"Suave," says my shampoo. "All-purpose solution," says my contact lens cleaning fluid. "Total control," says my styling gel. "cool," says my antiperspirant. I am not living up to the expectations of my toiletries.



Nuff Said...




YESSSSSSS



Finally, I am legally eligible to pursue my internship.

So we went to this person's surprise 60'th b'day party and some people were drunk like most Punjabis are at any given function.


People were making speeches. My uncle was the first to give one. He was really good. But the highlight of the night was a person wishing the birthday man Happy New Year and upon being corrected, said in his defence that he had been drinking since 6'o clock that evening. This incident took place around 11:00PM


Please, if any one is throwing me any kind of party... all speeches to be done before open bar commences.


So busy right now..


Have not had any food so far today and its 10 minutes to 4 pm...



OOHHHH.......... Busy Busy..

I almost forgot to post this... but this past week, I have been spending two hours a day reading the fabulous book, Holy Blood, Holy Grail.

Its an absolute must read for all fans or critics of Dan Brown's 'The Da Vinci Code' and even possibly 'Angels and Demons'.


And another thursday bites the dust.

Onwards to TGIF.... I have noticed the extraordinary amount of Jews in the big apple. When I asked my uncle he said there are more Jews in New York than Tel Aviv.


Wow, thats a weird but true fact right there.




I wonder if Asimov knew that one....

Commuting to and back from the city everyday for 2 hours does that to you.

Hopefully, things will get better.

Great enviroment, great weather and good xp.

I feel let down by the voters in India.




A person from another country??????







Sad day for India.
Counting of votes has begun in the world's largest democracy and the largest eletions ever in history of humanity.


I'll post results as soon as they are announced.

Last few seconds

Finished reading Dan Brown's Angels and Demons at 5:30 in the morning.

I just could not sleep until I finished reading the book.

570+ pages done in 15 hrs.


Now, thats an engrossing story. It beat my previous best....... Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code


He is now in my top 3 favorite authors of all time list.


He joins Michael Crichton and numero uno himself, Jeffrey Archer.

Saw the Pride of the Yankees today.


Had tears in my eyes when I heard Lou Gehrig's speech there at the end.


Touching and Poignant


An amazing movie

And so my mobo is fried.


Tough Luck eh?


And so ended the final episode of Friends.

How do I feel about this?

Well, to put it simply, I feel at peace. I feel serene, joyful, a tad bit sad but more than that also a little relieved that the ending was just and not poorly done.


Goodbye Friends. Can there BE anyone like them?

Tuesday, 4 May, 2004

Don't worry folks.... To dispel the rumors I am not quite dead.

My computer however pretty much is.


It might cost me around $45 just to get it examined..... Damm the Gaobot and Sasser viruses.

Anyway, today is the last day of finals so I should be able to do some posting soon.

So wish me luck and ciao.
