sPrinKLEr maRaThoN

shhhhhhhhh don't tell her now, but i think my cough has got worse.
errr. yes yes i know she was threatening with dire consequences if i did something stupid to make it worse when it was finally on the bend... i mean mend.

and i know i know running through sprinklers on the lawn, to get some blasted relief from the blasted blinkin heat DOES officially qualify as stupid.

and i know, i know. mebe it was monumentally stupid. but it felt soooooooo gooooooood.
we were walking back to our place at 11 in the night. the 3 of us. and suddenly the sprinklers in the park go off. and well, you can guess what happens. obviously we run into them :)
man did we cool off fast. its AWESOME !!

ok shhh cough..... err... lets not mention this itty bitty thing. i'm sure it'll be fine tomorrow... cough...

tOo eaRLy tO riSe

no idea what they're saying, but who cares !!! :D its still hillarious !!
in more formal language, thanks to K for the video :P

on another note, i'm slowly baking out here. with temperatures now reaching 108... its official. my brain has fried.
i've taken to sleeping on my deck chair. like a mummy. with my hands folded on my stomach and not moving an inch all night. coz
a. i'm gonna fall off the chair
b. i'm gonna fall off the chair...

and if that isn't funny enough for u. at 7 AM bright and early i can hear her all bright and ready and chirpy and sunshiny. groan.

"hey, wake up." [ prodding me on the shoulder. ]
"mmmphhpppph." [ me emitting muffled protest to this manhandling and unearthly hour wake up call. its only 7 for god's sake. let. me. sleep. ]
"heyy, wake up. u gotta eat this raw onion with honey."
"gaak. groaaaaaaaan. gaaaaaaaah." [ my mouth will stink all day. i absolutely refuse to eat it. ]
"heyy wake up. u slept for 9 hours already!! get up. that's way to much. now you're just being lazy."
"mmph" [ can't rollover. but i'm rolling over in my head. let me sleeeeeeeeeeep. ]

"here. just eat this. then u can sleep" [ who are we kidding. ur whole system will be so on fire, you'll run to the bath and sit under a cold shower. ]
"no no let me sleep. 15 minutes more." [ groooooaaaaaaaan. ]

"u know, then in ur husband's house, u know wat ppl will say? ppl will say ur the laziest... < voice trailing off >" [ oh god not again. think happy thoughts. think happy thoughts. murder is a sin. murder is a sin. murder on a wednesday is a sin. ]

"heyy get up. or i'll kick you" [ kicks/kinda pushes me and finds out i don't budge that easy or roll over or fall of...i'm just too walrusy embedded kinds ]

"ok i know how to make sure you get up. for sure sure. if u don't get up this very minute, i'm gonna come there and give u a big hug and a kiss"

"WHOOOOAAA hold on a sec" [ i'm up. and locked myself in the bathroom. pheeeeew narrow escape. sheeeeesh ]

LoCked hOrNs

so imagine if you will, what happens, when my mom-force collides with my roommate A-force??



its pretty good. female dynamics was always interesting.
[ trust me its hillarious. like watching 2 alpha wolves fighting for supremacy over a wolf pack ]

now on one side u have someone who's used to being the alpha female for the last couple of yrs. one of the only females in the group. [ forget alpha some ppl wudnt even classify me as female... ] and on the other side u have .... my mom. who's just plain darn used to getting her own way. everywhere.

so then when u have A telling my mom not to use that glass in the microwave or not to use something else here or not do something. or giving instructions.

well someone isn't pleased.

and me? i'm just sitting back and enjoying the undercurrents.

its even more hillarious when they start discussing coconut. whoever heard of arguments over coconut powder???


"ha!! who needs her coconut, i can buy my own coconut", and my mum rushes off to the store.
"ha!! as if i've never seen a microwave in my life! who is she to tell me i can't put her glass inside a microwave?? gimme 500 dollars. i'll go buy all the stuff i need !!!"
"aaha! i've been using all this even before she was born!! i've forgotten more about this stuff than she even knows in the first place"

aaaah thou female. so complex. so convoluted. so passive aggressive.
how can we live with you?? how can we live without... no actually the first part's it.

toO maNy unBearABLes

let me describe this pain to u.

its like a knife being stuck in my stomach and someone is sticking it.

no no no its not emotional. its the physical pain of it.

its the pain that we go through for the wonderful ***** privilege of progeny later on.

now i'm sitting on the couch. in the middle of a bleedin heat wave [ its a bleedin 103 outside today ] and then u have the absolute gall to come and tell me , since i'm getting 'on' in years i shouldnt practice birth control the first yr of my marriage and have a kid IMMEDiately?????

so i calmly looked at her and said, u know biologically one does not need to wait for the wedding. the wedding date can. in fact. become the giving birth date.
turned my head back straight and continued to watch tv.

yup. lady. if u think u can continue for the rest of my life to tell me what u want...

coz lady, don't push me hard. i'm this close to losing it and walking into the pacific ocean.

someone pour me a vodka.

ps: all hillsboro shops are out of air coolers. out of stock. zip. nada. there are no ACs in the houses here, coz apparently the weather is so wonderful, it NEVER gets too hot. u know? with all the trees.
ya right.

wat we need right now. is a good global level ________________

oNCE eVeRY dAy

oh god. egad. atleast before? i was woken up at 5 AM only on sundays.

now? now its EVERYDAY.

so there its barely light out, and i'm being shaken to wake up and take a bath.
apparently 'girls' need to do that. wake up at the crack of dawn and take a bath and say a prayer and touch ur husbands feet and then enter the kitchen. that's how 'girls' get bodily strength [ ?? ]

[ frozen horrified expression as i was listening to this. sorry K, but if you're ACTUALLY expecting this... welll oh ha ha ha. boy are u in for a reality check ]

meanwhile, my mum goes on and on.. bustling in and out of the room and folding clothes.... and walking in... and walking out.... and i can hear chopping... chooping? why is there chopping sounds?? why is someone cooking so early in the morning ???? i open one eye and blink at the blinkin clock... groan its not even 6:30 yet!

and while i'm still half asleep, i keep getting these vague home remedies for cough thrust in my face.

"here, take this. this is good for u"
take it and down it without a second thot. someone needs to leave now.
"oh god its bitter. wat the heck is it???"
"fresh cut ginger with honey"
"gaaaaaaaak. ok i'll get up in an hour" < and i just roll over >

"here take this."
i ate something else and now i can't rem wat it was.

"here eat a tomato" [ ?? wat?? ok ok don't ask too many questions. its only 7:25. i'm eating that darn tomato if it means i can get a few more minutes of uninterrupted sleep... ]

"here , eat breakfast"
"waaaat. shudnt i atleast like... wake up first. groan. just leave it here"

8:00 AM. my mom is done with all her work for the day and is sitting on my bed and staring at me. i open my other eye.

"i'm bored."
"i want to go back"

oh brilliant.

d, hEaL thYSeLf

oh so you thought , mebe the QoD had no more disasters to report. mebe that's why she isn't online so much. mebe that's why she isn't writing anymore ?
oh ha ha good one Wilson. that's a good joke.

now lets see... how can i put it??
briefly? succintly? in sublime fashion? in short?
my. mother. is. here.





oooooooookaaaaaaaaaaay. now that you've fallen off that chair and managed to climb back up again... she's been here a week. I've cried more times this week than i had the first half of the year. i've had severe acidity, or what not. severe side effects from my hormonal meds. oh i had hormonal meds. oh i was soooo hormonal.
then i got this mild cough, which turned into a major cough. and then a major fever with all the shivering and works and laid up in bed like a 14th century maiden from medieval england. mother nature visits and this time i'm leaking like a blinkin broken faucet on steroids and oh! what's this? there's no water in the house coz a pipe in front of the house burst !!!


okkkkk. now take a deep breath and relax. move those shoulders. rotate them around. ppl have started calling me irritable these days. now now now, i admit i've been a lil off my game..... i've got a few things going on my plate here... and i don't chose to write when i'm like that. or like this or watever. but u got to admit.
this has been a reaaaallly bad week. i mean REALLY.

but its pretty funny. few weeks ago, while i was basking in that glorious sunshine and reading my book... and generally relaxing... if u had told me bout this week, i'd have spit in your face, picked my books and run away screaming!!!


here's to monday. which is tomorrow.

mebe the next week won't be so mad... i mean bad. eh?

bLisSfuLly unConSCioUs

now i don't know if these are actual questions in you're brain that you are curious about.
or you're just asking them to get my goat.

so i'm gonna list all the questions i've heard so far and i'll keep coming back to this till dec.

-"omg, how can you go only a week before you're wedding!!?? what about shopping??!! what about your sari??!! u need a min of 6 weeks" [ honey , its called an EFF*** JOB. i don't have vacation. and who the heck wants to spend 3 months shopping!! ]

-"so should i book the mehendi guy?? omg ur not at all showing any interest. i seem to be more interested than you" [ are u kidding me??? its frickin 6 months away. chuck the mehendi. there will be NO mehendi ]

-"so what about the jewelry...i'm thinking this..." < eyes glazed over > [ omg i havent mutated to some earth human female creature who's actually interested in this ... this... omg get her off of me! ]

-"so how's the wedding prep going"

-"so how's the wedding prep going"


-"so hows the ....." [ 98461th time i've been asked in last 2 months. the accurate response wud be "uhhhhh wat prep?", what i really want to do is hit someone on the head.... ]

wat? just coz i'm getting married, you thot i had morphed into this giggly dreamy eyed girl who'd sit and pore over bridal .. clothes? gowns? skirts?? flowers?
you thought that i'd be dreaming of this day since i turned 12 or watever and sigh and plan my dream wedding?? < gag >
or you thought i wouldn't hit you on the head, if you talked about shopping for more than 20 minutes in a day?? [ oh u thought wrong baby, let me just find that pan ]

sorry. my violent tendencies seem to have increased. marriage has unfortunately not made me softer or calmer or smoother even in temperament. in fact while i'm bombarded with endless questions for which i most definitely have zero answers to. i'm left wondering.... should i chew a rope in frustration or should i just take up kick boxing. maybe i should do kick boxing. oooh i shud so do kick boxing.

and you wonder , why i'm taken to grinding my teeth and giving that pained i-wish-i-was-anywhere-but-here smile.
wonder no more my friend. but in fact if you were truly my friend, u wud kindly take a hammer and knock me on the head unconscious for the next 6 months.


oh god. u know the situation is bad, when ur hoping to be out unconscious for the next 6 months.

oooooh ur just watching me squirm and laughing ur head off aren't you???

dAnciNg tO a diFferENt tUne

ok so this is nothing related to the song, the spirit of the song.. nothing... nothing at all.

so we go to a dace club/lounge something sat night. was i just complaining that nothing really happens to me nowadays????

9:15 PM
well i was all tucked in my bed, reading this mystery...exhausted after my day spent basking in the sun in the library park on a blanket and with a pillow :P and i get this call. from P.

"heyy, how bout a dance club?"
"uhhhh... not really. am in the middle of this ..."
"oh god!! will you.... like look alive. come ON"
"hmmm , [ i did promise to be a 'yes man' from now on.. and i had this heavy dinner that i need to burn off... ] oh all right. i'll do it"
"yaay. k get ready. we're leaving at 10:30"

10:56 PM
still no sign of these guys. am almost ready to turn in , when they all barge in and hustle me out the door. the 5 of us. we're out the door , on our way towards portland downtown and to a dance club!!
each of us tries to one up the other...
"i've been here for 2 yrs and this is my first time to a club!"
"i've been here 8 months and this is my 4th time going to downtown for anything"
"i'm better than all u losers, atleast ive been here only 4 months"

we go there and there is this line like half way round the block. our jaws hit the floor. and my knees already begin to ache. [ jeez man i'm just growing too old for this ] but we stand , and chat up. and the only way we get ahead is that at 15 min intervals, the ppl in front of us, give up and leave. [ yaay! ]
when we're 3 groups away from the door. we suddenly overhear the 'guy' telling someone else, they take only cash :O

11:43 PM
we don't have cash!! uh oh. ok one go to the left, one to the right and 2 ppl stay where we are to hold our place in the line.

S: "where r they going??? [ at P's retreating back ] they accept card man. i know that they do most places"
me: "yeah, but u see the guy just told they don't. so these guys.."
S: "no, but they accept cards man. i'm pretty sure ..."
me: "yes, but that's what i'm telling you.. right now they don't.."
S: "but they.."
me: "god woman!! they said they don't!! wat r u arguing with me for?? i'd happily accept your card you know!!"
S: shuts up. phew.

uh oh. we're next and 3 ppl are missing. and uh oh. now wat.
and while i start almost hyper ventillating. the guy kindly sayas they got an ATM inside. [ dude didnt u just send my friends on a wild goose chase searching for an ATM the last time we asked you , if u had an ATM inside?? ]
so we call these folks back. right on time. coz they hadn't found the ATM and were about to get in the car and drive off to find the nearest ATM [ really?? ]
so we're in. we've paid. and all that stuff.

and we go to the dance floor.
oh god.

12:15 PM
look at all these ppl. and the lights. oww my eyes. u know if i had epilepsy , these lights are just seizures waiting to happen... but b4 i cud yell that joke in S's ear...i'm bumped by these dude grinding against some dudette.
"oh sorry. < bump > excuse me. sorry. < bump > excuse me < shove > sorry. excuse me < push > oh god. too many ppl. must. get. out."

well then. H tells us the back wud be less crowded and we manage to get there. in one piece. without accidentally feeling anyone. [ thank god! ] and there are the liiights and the music. and i feel the beginnings of a mild headache. but i'm determined to enjoy myself. [ heyy. this is supposed to be fun and i'm no oldy poldy aunty figure ]
so we dance... which is nice for like 5 minutes. coz we have some space and we're doing ok. and i like to dance.. [ yes yes i do. now stop rolling on the floor and laughing will ya? its not THAT funny!! ]
and the dude's decide to get a drink. so they try to tell us, and we don't understand, so they tell us through the age old sign language. and we're like ok. that's ok. go get ur drink. we'll be here. so we nod our heads.

now its S, A and me. the girls. while P and H have gone to the bar.
and we're dancing. this is nice.... and we dance.


after some time i see A has closed her eyes to get into the spirit of things and is dancing away to glory. moving her ass in all her joy while she doesn't know it, but she's kind of giving 2 black guys behind her a really nice show [ my back is to the wall. hey! i'm AWARE of who's around me 360 deg ALL the time babe ]
and i'm like 'shhh u better come this way, u don't wanna give a free lap standing dance to random folks in the club.. and girl.. she's refusing to come this way.... and i give up. i mean what do i care, if this black dude, thinks A's coming on to him. ooops wait u better come this way RIGHT NOW. he's really looking at ur ass. so i bend to her ear and yell. "UR ASS IS IN HIS FACE"
sorry needed something drastic to get her attention.

on my other side S is swaying like a graceful willow and routinely bumping into passing guys.. [ now i don't know if the guys were passing coz she was swaying like a graceful willow.... ]
and then this guy comes out of nowhere and holds her hand.

oh yaeah... she freaked out.

and i turned to look watsup. and this black dude is standing there and asking her for a dance. now i'm confused. A still hasn't opened her eyes. and i don't want to butt in and answer for S and tell the guy to shoo away. so she looks at me with a grimace and i really can't read her. so i'm not sure if she's willing but i'm busy shaking my head in a no.. and he's like
"come oonnnn one dance. you're in a club, just one dance" and she's like smiling and we're trying to say no. the 2 of us. and then A opens her eyes and by now he's like. "all 3 of u. just one dance.." and we're like. oh god how do we get rid of this dude.. and we're like.. "uhhhh okkkkk"
and he's right next to me and starts dancing. and i'm like

ok now i'm in a standing fetal position. hunched up on myself.

gud lord. i thought u meant DANCE. not .. now... watever ur doing.. < me spluttering > and A sees my horrified expression frozen on my face. and finally comes alive, leans towards the guy and says "our boyfriends are at the bar, we're just waiting for them"
which is like VERY GOOD A. and now the guy says "aah ok. theh enjoy urself ladies and walks away"


well it wasn't as bad as all that. prob just not more than 3 seconds. but still.


and then S taps me on the shoulder and says, lets go to the middle of the crowd. more ppl there. and i'm like " ARE U INSANE?? why wud u want to gyrate with random strangers rubbing against u. ugh. really? i mean really?" and she reads my look pretty accurately and shuts up. [ obv i don't belong in a epilepsy siezure causing club ]

and then H comes back and i grab and hold on to him for dear life. ok ok we're going to sit at this table, coz P is really hungry and hasn't had dinner... alright. but heyy isn't the club gonna close down in like an hour and we're not gonna be able to da... oh alright watever. and we go to this table. nice. and then the orig 3 ask for snaps. and i'm like really? really? photographs? inside a club? and ur not happy with the one i just took coz u don't look good in it? really?? how good do u expect the snaps with this lighting??
so i try a cuople of different modes in the camera. hit the jackpot at indoor, and take some 'satisfactory' one's. man these photograph maniacs are wearing me thin by now.

so they have the fish and the chicken and watever. and i'm ..actually don't know what i was doing. just ppl watching. i guess. like watching random ppl hookup and hit on each other...S wanted to meet guys and i'm trying to wrap my brain around that concept. these guy? THESE drunk and grinding with other females guys??? she wanted to meet THEM??

1:36 PM
so we're finally done eating. we still got 20 min. but now everyone's full and sleepy [ oh brilliant. mebe u want me to burp u too.. u babies ]
and we go on the floor. and we had about 5-10 good min of dancing. before the DJ suddenly switches to the slow songs.

damn. none of us know wat to do now. i mean really. wat the.... A and P are the wierdest couple possible. coz A continues to close her eyes and dance with her shoulder to her bf. and unfortunately P is no longer hungry and has some whiskey in him. so he's in the mood, i think and i'm sorry. but i'm busy laughing my head off. :P

and we wait. P thinks there's usually a good song right in the end. while H says naah DJ's winding down. and i'm like.. lets just go. coz..

uh oh
uh oh

right behind A. uh oh. we see a guy-a girl-and a guy. and this is NOT GOOD
coz they're .. gud lord.

and then i turn the other way and i see 2 women ... lets just say, getting realllly comfortable with each other :O
and now everywhere i look its ppl ... uuhhhh doing stuff. which i really don't want to see. and now there's A gawking at the ppl. and her jaw has already hit the floor. so i'm pulling on P's hand. ok that's it. lets go man. lets go.
and H is laughing his head off. and i'm like lets all go. and they want to wait for the end of the evening song. and i'm like wat the.... why are we staying back to watch live porn. and this is not chennai clubs dude. dude THERE IS NO fast song in the end..

2:03 PM
and we finally leave.


ofcourse we get a bit lost on the way home from downtown [ i was navigating wasn't i? ] and reach home at 3.
all i had was 2 glasses of water in the club and i stumble out of bed the next day with a raging headache. at 11:36 in the afternoon !!!!
wat the... where did my sunday morning go??? i want it BACK !!

aaaaah gud times.

iDLi's hErE we coMe

ive been having dreams of idli sambar the whole of next week :D

ooooooh my mommy's coming. i am SO having idli sambar everyday for 3 months. ok 2. as 66 days.
ooooooh take THAT you stupid country, u kept me away from my beloved idli sambar for 2.5 years. HA!!

ok ok i know u can get it in any restaurant. but seriously who can bear to stomach that??? i want the traditional udupi style. with the hint of jaggery and all.
ooooooohhhhhhh no more idli sambar in dreams.

only in reality, only :D awesomeness

yEhi Hai ziNDagi

so for some reason i'm hooked on to that show by tyra banks. heyy models are ppl too you know! and what? u think you're smarter than them aren't you?

well excccuuuuuse me. but any lady who can go from being a model, to almost owning a tvnetwork. [ wait does she ?? ] and producing and directing and inventing and influencing so many ppl... well model or not , she can't be dumb. she sure's smarter than us...

but those shows are interesting. i mean really, not a big fan of reality tv shows. except out here, u can see some interesting photography. AND you can really see how even the most beautiful ppl are full of neuroses and insecurities. and how sometimes even the ugliest girls can look good in a snap. [ oooh good tips there ]
but see here. a bunch of neurotic, self absorbed girls in a house. almost bordering on crazy, and.. and.. well nothing. i just find it interesting that's all....
besides its summer u know. what can you do, when you're so sick you can't even stand up straight. though i feel a lot better today. not like i'm gonna fall off my chair any that's when u start watching random shows.. but if i ever start watching shows like hitched or dicthed [ wat the... ], then pls, can u take that gun and just shoot me?? or hit me on the head with it ??

still got half the summer left ! yaay ^_^
ooooh gotta post those pics of east OR and rest of the places.
i really need a better way to organize my pics... hmmm... ooh oooh guess what? i'm headed to the library today !!
after so long :)

so my mom's coming. oh god.
no further comments.

so L's coming to stay with me :)
that's so cool..
nice to have ppl around.

on another note, i can see my dreams of an idle life just fade away. pace picking up. oh god is this what they mean about being sucked into the vortex of life?


almost had an argument with N the other day. well... managed to fob it off, in the very last minute. well the whole thing started with her assertion that Pepsi as a company does NOT need to exist.
well now, i don't know about not needing to exist. i mean come on. atleast they're 100% energy friendly. they like self sustainable or something.
and wat about the ppl they employee. sure thing they're happy pepsi exists.
and what about quaker oats !! :O
i love my granola , with honey and nuts quaker oats cereal. i'd be very very sad if THAT went away.

my assertion was that pepsi like most of the stuff man has come up with [ in his infinite brilliance ( stupidity ?? ) is just part of the natural cycle of civilization and destruction.

heyyy sure we're destroying the planet, but i've made my peace with it. i mean u DO realize the world is coming to an end in 2012 right? until then, i dont care. make all the pepsi bottles u want... [ u can clearly see, the strain of worrying over the planet has finally cracked me in the head. and left me with a gaping hole in the middle of my head... ]

but yeah... can't really say Pepsi needs to disappear like thin smoke. Holy baloney, if something REALLy needs to go, its underwear. i mean who the heck invented that??!! or cars, [ oh apparently cars are NECESSARY to go from one place to another .. ]
or computers... or airplanes or ...or....KFC... i mean why stop with pepsi?? everyone just quit they're jobs and go back to farming for they're own food.
you DO realize that's the only TRUE planet friendly option we have??

hmmmph. yup i narrowly managed to avoid a fight with N :P

wAgiNg tHe riGht bAtTLe

oooooooh did you hear?

google and its OS and its ambitions and the very notion of running microsoft out of business??
imagine a world without microsoft. aaaaah. i actually can't. guess its been around all my life. almost.

imagine a world with no ibm, or no microsoft or no intel.
no really, i can't!!


but this is cool. google. the OS. the web apps. they're really cool u know. all those apps i mean. for all the sharing and all the editing them real time together. really neat. i don't know why companies don't use more of it.
oh ya right the security thing.

i'm kind of tired. so won't be writing too much till i get better. ok?

kEepiNg abReaST

i'm gonna build a case.

against reading the news.

now b4 u jump down my throat and rip me to shreds, u pls note that i try to read something everyday. as much as i can stomach.

but really. u tell me, that i'm much better informed. now that i know that half the world is filled with sex offenders and the other half of the world i busy dying through some kind of genocide/tyranical regime and collectively everyone is causing our planet to self-destruct. yes yes i know, that's the price of civilization. in fact the price of our existence. more and more it looks impossible that we can live with any kind of harmony with the rest of our world. and yes more and more the 2012 end of the world i've been telling you about looks inevitable. but jeez, do you have to try so hard to make the deadline??

note to self: nayan tarse, dev d.

man , have you read the news. there are SO MANY of these sick ppl around !!
its a wonder.. actually help me out here. remind me again, that we're supposed to be what? better than animals? like higher intelligence.

ARE U EFFIN KIDDING ME??? are we even ON the same planet? LOOK AT THE NEWS!! go ahead. go on.
yes yes there are stories of hope , in some remote corners of the page. but instead , what i got as headlines is some rubbish about how sat-navs are scaring britishers coz they're offended by the female voice spitting out instructions "don't turn there u moron" [ well boo hoo to u ] and then 3 stories of how these abusers were prosecuted and then the one where the kyoto protocol is not working [ oh big surprise Einsteins, even a brain dead chimpanzee knew THAT one ]...


tell me again, why knowing all this is good. and how i'm so much better off to know in minute detail of what's happening in the world as compared to my ancestors who were only concerned with what happened on their street??
oh sure, half the problems we're in today is coz our ancestors only bothered with what happened on their street. and sure its gud to know the current news at the exact same moment its happening.
but this unhealthy obsession you seem to be having in keeping up with the news and then deriding people for not doing the same?
yeah. you'll know about the world ending exactly 3.4 seconds before i do... wooo hooooo_______ < abrubtly cut off >

wHeN tiMe cAn'T stOp fOr yoU


some people never learn.

10 years and counting and we haven't managed to remember it even once... [ we as in, me and the voices in my head ]
actually if u consider my mom, then that wud be 16 years and counting. haven't managed to remember her b'day.

oh dear. when is THAT one again??

you know.. call me heartless....its not so much as forgetting that bothers me... it's the guilt trip you're kind of forced to take [ yes yes i know. i'm scum of the universe. i forgot to wish you. oh gud lord, someone gouge out my eyes. ok my ears. can you stop the incessant weeping?? ]

ok so i feel bad. i forgot to wish you. and ur looking at me with those big wounded eyes that's piercing a knife through my ... errr... now i want to say heart, but u know.. come on. who are we kidding?? [ it's already been established numerous times babes, i HAVE no heart. some ppl even think i'm not human... just landed on the planet in a pod from outer space ]
so anyways. yes i feel guilt and here, u can have my watch. wait i already gave that away, here take my phone , something, anything. just stop looking like i ran you over with my cool car. which by the way gives an awesome mileage of 36 miles/gallon.

i know!!!

so the weekend was good. fell sick. major heat wave. wilted like a limp noodle and didn't do all the places we were supposed to. some really nice stuff to see in east oregon guys. u shud do the travelling. i mean if there's one thing i know. its that we're all gonna die some day. [ ok so i'll prob have to leave on the escape pod.... ]
so since there's the whole limited time angle going.. [ gud lord i shud be writing travel brochures. come to alaska. ur gonna die some day. do alaska b4 that !!! ]

A and co went to montana, the glacier park. :O
OMG that was awesome. as far as i cud tell from the pics of mountains which were in the background. one thing about these guys taking pics, is that they prefer to take a lot of 'patel' snaps. u know where ur standing in front of the mountain and so what if u look like a puny insignificant gnat where the mountain can crush u like a bug. and so wat if the light is behind u. so that ur face looks like a person from east africa and ur basically ruined the pic of the mountain. u'll still take it that show that you were here, and there , and there, and here too.
so i try to see as much as possible by ignoring the ugly humans and trying to focus on the awesome waterfall or mountains or glaciers [ which are OMG FANTASTIC btw ]
and sigh. so that's one more place, i gotta do.

so this weekend, went to see
the painted hills [ pretty neat. diff colored hills. red streaks, gold, lavendar, black and brown )
3 sisters [ gorgeous mountain peaks ]
drove thru columbia hwy river gorge. [ ... no words to decribe it :P ]
saw the panther creek falls [ not touristy at all. very nice. cool. and can get close to icy water and fantasize about jumping in :P ]
multnomah falls , horse tail falls [ nice, but touristy. too many ppl ]

A and co went to glacier national park. montana
did the 10 mile hike to see the lake in the middle.
did the horse riding
did the staying next to a lake at the base of the mountain thing.
seen the pics, its mind blowing.
don't think they have any nice landscape pics, most of the 4 GB of pics was 'patel' snaps.

R and family went to vancouver. nice place. small town. awesome indian food.

another R and co went to yosemitte. no details yet :P

end of report. now get back to work !! will post some pics soon

ps: still sick. feel like falling down. but shhhhhhh don't tell my mom. she's coming on the 17th anyways.

sOunD of MorNinG

read a poem.
someone i know , knew someone who wrote it.
if that's not convoluted enuf.. trust me, the entire poem was made up of such lines.

sorry, but my brain hurt to read it
so i won't torture u by posting it here.

heard this on the radio.
brandon heath. ok so i like bubblegum hip-hop. pop or watever. but its nice in parts.

iT's dAnciNg, nAtUrAL

oooh ooooh so i saw something on my trip to the beach the other day, which i hadn't seen before.

oh man if ONLY i had a camera. with zero shutter lag :O
or even video!!!!

ok let me try to explain what i saw.

so there we were standing on the beach. looking at the vastness of the pacific ocean. glad the sun was out. tried the water. oh GOD, no thank you.. its FREEzing.
so we're standing, there. look the ocean is so nice. so big. wish we cud swim in it.

and then we see it.

a row of birds. flying in a line. on behind the other. and then they form a small arch. kind of a 'u' or a hook kinds. and the first one dips and then the second one dips behind it and so on. all of them one by one go so close to the waves. and then rise up.
they're doing the wave!!

and we're all spellbound. stopped in our tracks. stopped in the middle of raccous laughter and staring at what's happening. as again and again the birds dip and rise. in a graceful dance. going alternatively towards the ocean and away from it. smoothly, gracefully, serenely.

< choke > it was beautiful u know.

the low frequency sine wave formation :P that's what i'll call it! he he.
wonder why they do that?

they looked happy.
those birds.

or mebe it was just me. projecting human emotions onto them. i'd like to see that again some day. u shud see it too.
