Betty

With time everything seems possible. Everything is tolerable. given enough time you get used to the grossest of stuff.

We hated it when we first saw. It was yucky. Eww!
We saw it again.
Thought so many times about how to send it out. But we cant. So we gave up.
Again and again we saw it.
We got used to it.
We see it now and then.
It comes into view, pops its head around and goes.
It comes and goes.
We see it.
It's yucky. But we see it.

Now it's called Betty.
It's the baby lizard in my neighbour's room

Coffee in the Rain!

It was a hot afternoon. The sun was scorthing. I needed to get some work done so I began walking and reached my destination at 3. Work in progress.
I just happened to look up the sky. It was beautiful. The sun was shining to one side and the other opposite horizon marked a beautiful blue of clouds. Those that bring in the rain and shower upon us the blessings.
'I think it's gonna rain' I remarked.
'Yeah, it might. Do you need an umbrella?', he asked.
'Naah, I'll jus walk back to hostel in a jiffy. You might need it.'
'It's ok. Departmently only na'

Soon time was near and we had to leave to hostel/dept.
'Wait! We'll grab a coffee.'
'Make it quick'
I ran and got us a cup each and we were off.

No sooner had I handed him the cup it started raining. No, lemme rephrase that. It started pouring down. No, I think it was a hail storm. Yes! Little pieces of ice they were, dropping to the ground with force and melting away in fractions of a second. It was accompanied by wind whoosing everywhere. We had to cover our coffee and sip it.
The heat kept us warm and we walked as fast as we could against the wind. When I finished my cup and needn't worry about my coffee anymore I realised how drenched I was and I began to laugh. I couldn't remember the last time I got so drenched in rain.
When I was alone on my way to hostel, I looked around and found no one. I sang and danced my way back. At one point I had to hold on to something till the wind rested a little, at the fear off being blown off! It was so freaking cold. So much fun. Finally, I went back to hostel to my core and stood outside her door totally dripping. And she was totally tripping. I just couldn't stop laughing at myself.

Yeah! Dancing in the rain is fun!
Wait a min, sipping coffee in the rain is fun too!!!

Blog for all it's worth

Weird feeling!
I have neither blogged nor commented on other blogs for a very long time. I have technically disappeared off the face of the blogging community. So today I was checking out stuff on my Google Reader and I realised how much I missed it. So I decided to blog again.

But on what? I feel so disconnected I don't even have anything to blog about. So here's just a blog for the sake of blogging. A blog for all it's worth.

Yes, a crazy life I do lead. Craving for time all the time and then ultimately when I want to blog I don't find anything to say. What am I doing ? Am I wasting my time on worthless things that I can't even blog about ?
Take a stand and look around. Achievements I haven't gotten any to speak of. Time I haven't gotten any to spend with people I want to. Love I can't those who love me. Hate I could never do. Run that is all I do. I run. Away. Away from everything that means to me. How do I do that? Simply by doing something else. Avoiding. Doing something else that doesn't matter to me.

I avoid doing what really means to me. And I end up doing things that don't really matter to me. No wonder there is nothing worth blogging in my life.
Hopefully, all the things I do really mean something to someone else and I make my impact. At least the existence will be satisfied.



[ playing in the back of my head is Dido's 'thank you' (except without the only happy part like thank you) ]


The blog has lost it's meaning though.

Is it time to light it's funeral pyre ??

Use IE You Dope !!!

Yeah.. This is the message that you get when you try to access mozilla firefox in the comps at the office of Taramani Guest House.

A message pops up with the title of the post as the title and the content is "I dont hate firefox but i like ie"

I hope all those who keep exclaiming "You still use IE!" read this. :)
