Mind Games

Every night, as i toss and turn in bed trying to get to sleep, I inadvertently end up trying to think of blog updates.hehe. And yes, every night i mentally phrase an update in my head, sleep only when I'm pleased with it... only to forget what i had thought of the next morning!! Grrrrrr... How frustrating is that??? So many updates in my head all posted but never delivered. Just like our Indian Postal System. I'm Indian after all...but i wonder when this will change, when my brain will retain at least the basic thought behind the update if not the post word to word. I really wouldn't mind rewriting the whole thing provided i have the idea in my mind!!
This is just not done ha!(ps. this is for my brain) You've got to get your act right... n soon!>:P

The Indian Premier League

IPL…what an amazing start! Taking the best there is in India, Cricket & SRK…that’s SOME “fatte” way of getting the cash boxes ringing, and ringing hard! Saw the very first match yesterday… and twenty20 we’ve found out by now is really very interesting, and that’s what it exactly was! Frankly speaking, I’m not a cricket buff. I go as far as watching matches in tournaments only if India happens to be playing and IF I got company to watch the match…I wouldn’t of my own accord ever switch channels to watch a cricket match. Infact, I don’t even watch a match if I happen to be surfing channels alone and a I see a match going on… football though is a different ball game all together[;)]

But since the twenty20 world cup…yeah...that’s gotten me hooked! The matches are short, compact, not boring at all…always entertaining! And that’s precisely why I was looking forward to the IPL… looks like entrepreneurs have learnt and tapped the proper niche required to rake in money by the truckloads and keep the audiences glued “and” Happy at the same time!! The first match was enough proof for that… first with the news channels publicizing the fact that it was SRK vs/ Mallya…cricket not even in the picture at that time! And then obviously the match…a star studded event…looks like page three spent its day on the field for a change…hehe. And the performances were mesmerizing…a great effort I must say.

All that said and done…let’s get to the match, shall we? ENERGY…that’s the only word I could use to describe it. The consecutive sixes and fours had us exhilarated! (every Indian knows how excited cricket makes people here…hai na?)

Brendon McCullum…fattang performance…highly entertaining!! wouldn’t really go into all the details of the match because I’m sure most of you must’ve seen it. But I must say that it was surely high on the entertainment factor!

Why am I stressing so much on entertainment you ask?? In a country like India, where cricket is followed like a religion, I ain’t too sure how many people would like me calling it entertaining so many times. Some might go ahead ask me HOW much I know about the game, and to be frank, I don’t. I don’t religiously follow cricket and nor do I intend to…IPL, I will cuz it has just caught my fancy and it’s interesting. Sitting in front of the tv for a whole day watching a 50 over match or worse, a test match!! Is surely not my cup of tea.

Well, we saw the whole match and yaa… one can’t ignore the fact that the whole gig might be rigged…or fixed. I mean, aren’t those WWE results out on the net way before the matches take place?? People still watch em don’t they?? I think they’re crazy though…lolol..brainless gits…teehee…but the IPL matches being rigged thing, it may be true…or may not but I don’t particularly care ya. As long as “I” don’t know what’s going to happen in the next ball, I’ll watch the damn thing. Fixed or not fixed… “I just happen to like it”…bleh!

PS: about whom I’m supporting?? I haven’t thought about it yet…will decide after I watch a few more games…btw…they’re coming close to home on the 26th!!n I’m going!!!.......erm…mostly;)

Sabke Results aa gaye par mere nahi :(. Fundo,express everyone everyone…I couldn’t go to college today cuz of a wedding in the family. Yaa right, Jab sab results ka intezaar kar rahe they, I was busy hogging yummilicious food;) ,arrre but I really hate some of these profs ya…mere friends ko mera result diya hi nahi!! I mean, despite me having taken the trouble of going to college yesterday…writing an authority letter, getting the friend who was supposed to collect the results to meet the vice principal, get an approval, blah blah blah. Phir bhi nahi diya!! This, is what I’d call(in Anshul’s words) highly unparliamentary behavior on the prof’s part. God alone knows what satisfaction he would have gotten by refusing a student her report card even though she had completed the formalities required because she would be absent! Aise log naaa…aaargh!! Bloody sadists >:P

Ab kal hi milega humein humara result. Wish me Luck!

Till then

Life in Cartoon Motion

This could well be called a reference to fundo’s rants on pop music. Made me want to talk about my favorite pop album…n one of the recent releases that too! I might’ve grown out of the pop music phase of my life but this one album just doesn’t seem to get outta my head!
M talking about “Life in cartoon motion” by MIKA…not apna mika singh ok?? He’s this fatte hyperactive guy who makes you WANT to listen to his music…atleast in my case.[:p] For those who don’t know, one of his most favorite songs would be “love today”…the tune of which you used to hear as star world’s theme music till a month ago…goes something like..doom tar a ri ra ri...lolol….can’t recreate that here hehehehe…
About the album, by far one of the very few pop albums that I’ve completely liked and enjoyed. All his songs are a Huge Carnival!!! It’s like a new party with every new song!! Personal favorite??LOLLYPOP!(my last week tak ka callertune!), Grace Kelly, Billy Brown, My interpretation, Love today, Big girl,you are beautiful…aah all of em! Fatte Fatte album…and MIKA???he’s this adorable, hyperactive, high on sugar entertainer that sure does keep u well entertained…
Do get your hands on this one! I can’t promise all of you’d like it…but do try…its one of those happy songs wala album that makes u perky n chirpy n all that ;)
Here’s to MIKA this time! cheers!

The Bucket List

Yesterday was, me n my friend keedu thought, the last time for us to catch the bucket list on the big screen. So, t’was decided. We were gonna watch it whether the whole gang came along or not…yeh movie watch karna important tha yaar! 5:30 show at Huma adlabs, Fundo not answering phone calls…grrrr…so it was just the 2 of us. Me n keedu at kanjurmarg, we’d never ever been there before…so we were just havin fun roaming around. Tickets liye, the guy at the counter asking if we wanted corner seats??huh..? nevermind…ache beech wale seats book kiye n went in. Constant stares. Took us a minute to realize we were the only ones who weren’t couples for that show…atleast conventional, acceptable couples that is…hehe. Hardly 15 people in the theatre and all sitting in different corners..sheesh! we were disgusted! Decided not to look around at all and only stare at the screen. But once the movie started…there seriously wasn’t anything else we would have wanted to do anyways!
AMAZING movie I must say. A huge Morgan Freeman fan that I am, and keedu being a Jack Nicholson pagal, We thoroughly enjoyed the 1 hr 38 minutes ka picture. About the movie, it goes like this- Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson had been given only 6 months to live. Jack, a multi millionaire AND owner of the hospital they both were in. Freeman tries to rewrite his “bucket list” in the hospital and jack asks him about it. Well, A bucket list is basically a list of things a person’d want to do before he died..or lets say “kicked the bucket”. Now starts the real movie with Jack Nicholson offering to finance Freeman in fulfilling his list and they make it both their lists. So the two set off and what ensues is a wonderfully told tale in wonderful locales.
What I particularly loved about the movie was the way things were described…very very beautiful I must say. So guys, please don’t miss the movie! Take my word, You’ll enjoy it!....n bleh you to my friends who didn’t make it…you missed something reallay good.

And btw, this movie has tempted me to create a tag too...a la fundo if i may say so! C'mon guys...i want you to make your bucket list...maybe taking a workd tour, meeting the love of your life, eating till u burst open...hehe..watever watever ur little wishes might be...put it down!!

i tag fundo aka jiggs, samby, express, and vicky

If wishes were horses

Tagged by Fundo… Ok, so I gotta write down 5 things I’d do if I were of the opposite sex. goes!

I’d stay out late for one…I so hate the fact that its such a big deal when girls come home late and nothing when boys do.
If I ever was a boy, I guarantee you I’d be a tall tall one. I’ve always wanted to be tall!! But then being a girl, haven’t had much of a choice there…well yeah..tall girls do exist…unfortunately… I aint one of em. If I were a ladka, there’d be more chances of me being tall than short If u know what I mean.:P
Go bald. Yes I so want to!...not that I’m not tempted even though I’m a girl…but then I’m answerable to my people and they’d never ever let me do it so bleh!:(…it’d be much easier if I were a boy…don’t you think so?
Ok…now consider the possibility of me being a boy only for one day…just one…then I roam around in nice pink girl clothes…very girly clothes. Yes. Why you ask?...aah..just for the heck of it.:P
I’d get to go anywhere I want to without having people think about my safety and the kind of people I’d be dealing with wherever I end up. That I’m sure would be bliss!
I tag all those who read this and haven't been tagged by fundo yet...hehe

take the speed test!
