Other side of the pond

Nice.

Good to see a Yankee writing something about cricket. And of course once he referenced Stick Cricket I had to blog about it.

See The Hardball Times which I frequent every day.

Keep in coming, man.

Home Sweet Home

Back home. Feels good to be back but at the same time I feel melancholy about the whirlwind of a trip I had. 8 days or so and traveling across 20 time zones and back.

I now know what it feels like to be a road warrior. Travel in flights, stay in motels, order in, have the airline misplace some luggage, buy some gifts, the works. I think I can handle it.

Cheers for all the good times.

Currently listening to:- Shpongle & Chicane.

Quote of the Day

This just in from an Esquire article abt the 60 things worth shortening your life for.

Number 42 is Secondhand Smoking:-

The smoker has the best stories, tells the best jokes, and laughs the hearty, hacking laugh of someone wise beyond his dwindling years. If black lung by proxy is the price we must pay for staying close to this dying breed, so be it.

Awesome.

Back in the East

Well that was a whole lotta fun. Cali is awesome. I miss it already.

Played tennis like an addict. I'm gonna try and do this some more in Bombay. Ate, drank & chilled out a lot as well. And that was just last weekend. Monday, T & W was the web 2.o expo which was an amazing thing to behold. So many uber-geeks in 30,000 sq feet was like tech nirvana. I hope to do this next year as well.

Sights see in and around sf included the famous 'Crooked' Lombard street, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz prison, Pier 69, Fisherman's wharf & a whole bunch of Sea Lions. A nice city. Riding the BART was a fun experience as well.

The flight last night to nyc was uneventful (not that I need a constant state of adrenaline on airline flights) where I basically slept the whole flight for prob the first time in my life. Got to a clients office around 30 mins ago. Just catching up on emails and pending to-do's.

I'm booked in Secaucus, NJ till Sat so I'll be heading over there in couple of hrs. I plan to meet up with some old friends tomorrow & hopefully I can even goto the AC on Sat for a few hrs. Lets see how everything goes.

San Fran thank you ma'am

A historic day for the blog - obviously with 4 years being completed today.

Today I'm also leaving for the US for a quickie in San Fran. That sounded better in my head.

A pitstop in NYC and then back home in time for drinks and work a couple Mondays away. I hope to post some pics and some actual updates from a tech conf. Woo-hoo.

Enough of the cliches but man is it true.
