Ahh! The old pest is back! All the impressions of this new place will have to wait. The thing foremost in my mind is Shawshank Redemption. Having the seen the movie with subtitles on (shame! shame! but damn these fellows swallow half the words), I've realized why cveejiehe has gone to such great pains to make me see it. Thanks once again mama! I'll, over the next few days, post some of my favourite dialogues of the movie (oddly enough they reflect my mood too!)

... and when they put you in that cell, when those bars slam home, that's when you know it's for real. Old life blown away in the blink of an eye... a long cold season in hell stretching out ahead...nothing left but all the time in the world to think about it.

I may want to change the last sentence to "nothing left, not even time to think about it."!

A small break!

If any of you have been faithfully visiting this blog, then please note that there may not be any updates for quite some time to come. Right now I'm in home town and posting this from a net-cafe, but the cafes here suck! If not for the Windows OS on these machines, one can quite understandably mistake them for some PDP11s.

I hope to be in circulation by this month end, but don't bet your life on it!

I'm seriously ruing my decision to take this career shift. I didn't know how Sonia felt when she gave up the PM's chair, but I am having hell of a time just thinking of giving up this plush chair and air-conditioned environs with cool work-schedule and lifestyle for the rigours of a (hell-reminding, suicide-inspiring) student life.

I've been quite alright with the idea of getting back to brown-once-white tshirts, chappals, shaggy face and all the other necessary qualities of an ideal student. But what I didn't bargain for is the 20 hours of slogging each day! Asking a software engineer, who btw has managed to add 5 kilos of fat to the already billowy portions of his waist and butt in a record short time, to slog his ass off for the whole day, discounting the sleep-eat-shit part, is nothing but ROYAL RAPING!! Isn't there some law in this country against that pastime? Or is it only for the fairer sex? Yes? Man, it's so unfair!

And the worst part is the seniors, apart from explaining in excruciating detail their nightmarish daily schedules, insisting that we will ENJOY our stay. ENJOY? Did I hear that right? Who do they think I am? Dudes, I'm not a goddam masochist though I now really wish I were. I suddenly feel like a sloth who, hitherto has been happily lunching on the tree-tops and generally doing things at its own pace, has been entered into 100m hurdles at the Olympics. I want my forest back! I want my trees back! I want my leaves back!

Just for laughs

I am picking this thing straight up from here, but dash it it's too good to leave. Had a really hard time trying not to burst out laughing. True example of a LOL post! Apparently these are told/written by some Billy Connelly, whoever he is he gave my day a great start!

Things I hate about everybody....

1. People who point at their wrist while asking for the time....I know where my watch is pal, where the f*ck is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is?

2. People who are willing to get off their arse to search the entire room for the TV remote because they refuse to walk to the TV and change the channel manually.

3. When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too". F*cking right! What good is a cake if you can't eat it?

4. When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course it is. Why the f*ck would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they?

5. When people say while watching a film "did you see that?". No tosser, I paid 10 quid to come to the cinema and stare at the f*cking floor.

6. People who ask "Can I ask you a question?". Didn't really give me a choice there, did you sunshine?

7. When something is 'new and improved!'. Which is it? If it's new, then there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it.

8. When people say "life is short". What the f*ck?? Life is the longest damn thing anyone ever f*cking does!! What can you do that's longer?

9. When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks, "Has the bus come yet?". If the bus came would I be standing here, Knobhead?

10. People who say things like 'My eyes aren't what they used to be'. So what did they used to be? ears, Wellington boots?

11. When you're eating something and someone asks 'Is that nice?' No it's really revolting - I always eat stuff I hate.

12. People who announce they are going to the toilet. Thanks that's an image I really didn't need.

13. McDonalds staff who pretend they don't understand you unless you insert the 'Mc' before the item you are ordering.....It has to be a McChicken Burger, just a Chicken burger gets blank looks...........Well I'll have a McStraw and jam it in your McEyes you f*cking McTosser.

14. When you're involved in a accident and someone asks 'are you alright? Yes fine thanks, I'll just pick up my limbs and be off.

Bow to thee!

A Small Crib

I hate guys who just disregard the 'NOT WORKING' slip attached to a piss-pot! (not that I particularly like those who do)

I know that this will be at the very bottom of 'List Of Cribs That Warrant A Blogpost Of Their Own', but If I don't post it I run the risk of depriving you people of a deep insight into my personality!
