Green grass

Awesomely funny quote just seconds ago.

Walter : You got any work to do
Me : Nah, I finished all the work I had
Him : Man, I wish I had your job
Me : You know what they say, "The Grass is always greener on the other side."
Him : Yeah, but on your side the grass is truly green.


Haha

On a side note. Looking forward to getting some cleaning done in my apartment this week-end.

Random Searches

I always thought how I would feel when I would eventually be stopped by the Police to get my bag searched. Would I feel anger? frustration? fear? or all of the above.

When it actually happened today, what I felt was just resignation. Nothing else.

Look, I accept the fact that people have to be searched. I am not a crazy right-wing conservative. But at the same time I am not a crazy left-wing liberal. I am realistic. I understand that some things just have to be done damn the consequences. I mean all you have to do is look at the alternative for a second and you understand why this is necessary.

Just don't patronize me. The day the searches first started, I walked to the local subway and found a lot of people being searched. I headed to the the bus terminal, picked up a newspaper expecting to find the Police saying exactly what they said. "We will be conducting 'random' bag searches. We will not be profiling people"

Are you kidding me? Just tell me the truth and I will be fine with it. Which is why I respected the one local government guy who said "Lets search all Arabs". I mean yeah that's kind of a harsh statement but that's what they do anyway.

Just say that we are going to be searching all brown people. Just say it. If that's what you are actually going to be doing. Don't indulge us in this hypocritical bullshit.

End of anarchy?

Apparently Palestinian's have stopped the madness at the border.


Palestinians 'end' Gaza anarchy


Yeah. Right.

Real time

Saw another episode of Real Time with Bill Maher on HBO last night.

This show is really good. Bill Maher might be the best news/comedy guy second only to John Stewart.

A direct quote from last night's show which originally aired on Friday the 9th.


Bill: (to President Bush) On your watch, we've lost almost all of our allies, the surplus, four airliners, two trade centers, a piece of the Pentagon, and the city of New Orleans. Maybe you're just not lucky!


Ouch!!!!!!!



Find Yourself - No, I'm serious

Strange visitors

Oh and I was just checking the statistics for the blog to check the hits which I do every morning and I found two strange entries below:-


6 September    11:53 Saudi Arabia Backbone, Saudi Arabia

6 September    14:15 Federal Aviation Administration, Washington, D.C., United States



Interesting. What could have possibly attracted such visitors to the blog?



All roads lead to rome

I don't know if I mentioned this earlier.


But I love the new tv show Rome on HBO. Really good historical drama/thrill ride.


Should be one heck of a series.

Back in the city

I'm back in the Big Apple.

What an awesome week-end trip I had. Buffalo was fun. Got to hang out with my buddies and haunt our old joints. Got to eat some delicious Indian food and got to just take some time off and chill


I feel so much better coming back today. I think everyone should take some time outs once in a while to maintain optimum functioning capability

Going going back back to Buffalo Buffalo - The Notorious Tallguy

As I head back to Buffalo for the long-weekend tomorrow after a long period of 2 whole months.. I am thinking about all the things I actually miss about Buffalo. I knew I was gonna miss it but not like this. Not for these reasons.

Here goes:

I miss subs at Wegmans

I miss 50 Cent Bowling Monday nights

I miss cheap taco bell food

I miss the super fast Internet connection

I miss 2 for 1 happy hour and Southwestern Egg Rolls at Chillies

I miss playin Ball

I miss workin out

I miss Thursday night bowling

I miss Thursday night at Molly's followed by A Slice at Sal's

I miss kicking ass at Racquetball

I miss getting my ass kicked at Backgammon

I miss playing Bug House

I miss all our theme parties

I miss late night visits to Toms's

I miss early morning visits to Tom's

I miss playing Poker

I miss the chance to drive

And finally I miss the feeling you get when you have stayed up all night talking to your room-mates who like yourself are or are close to being erudite in topics like Geography, History, Religion, Science and the Classics.


In short - looking forward to this weekend
