Just because a sequel bombs in a box office doesn't mean that it wouldn't be done again.


That just became my Useless fact #5.

Practicing what I preach - Monkey Business - reloaded

PS: This post very much has to do with the previous post.
PPS: Extremely busy past week and this week, so could not visit a lot of my favorite blog stops.
Shameless PS: Previous Useless facts are 1&2, 3, 4.

Cat Policing! - 2

It happened again today! - this time with a fly swatter and the same rich-girl-cat heroine and poor-guy-cat hero.

For all those who are wondering if I have no other job except monitoring atrocities made against cats... well, heh!

Flashback to Cat Policing 1.

Monkey business

Arboreal causes flutter at State Park

A runaway monkey was found climbing the trees of a state park in Florida. Hikers later told the press that the animal was climbing the tall trees along the rapids and posing for photographs, of which many were taken by curious onlookers. Unlike its more rowdier cousins of the East, this particular specimen seemed to be only interested in having a nice time and not at all keen in destroying park property. The monkey later disappeared into the very depths of the forest.

Have a nice weekend!

Much ado about nothing

I never even thought this would make a post, but here it is before I change my mind.

Just now I was going through Cricinfo's Quote, Unquote section, the latest being this one:

"I've played well for the last five to six months."
Sourav Ganguly wonders what all the fuss is about.

The irony of the statement startled me so much that I started laughing uncontrollably.

But that is not even the point.

The point is that, for sometime now, whether it is about something I read online or some incident in my day-to-day life, if it affects me at some level, I immediately want to write a post about it. I would grab the nearest computer and login to faster than light. I would even give the post a great title (you know how I feel with titles!), but the post's lifetime would only last 1-2 minutes.

Most often than not, I would start feeling embarrassed and silly that I actually attempted to write a post about that topic. VERY RARELY, some of those posts would go to "The Draft trimester", but that poor old post knows its fate would last only until the next login.

Well, it's time for a change then.

My assumption that a post needs to be atleast at a certain level of complexity is broken to pieces, since I am actually publishing this post. Look! I even found a matching picture for it!

Have a nice weekend!

Smiling elephants, 1001 strollers and a good start

Oh, by the way, Raju does exist really. Never have I known a person with several similarities - same birthday, same height, same principles (well, except for the one about "thalaivars"). For a while, it was pretty unreal, but I got that checked out yesterday. He and his wife Geetha had come down to Orlando for celebrating the New Year at Magic Kingdom (Disney world). It was kind of last minute deciding that I would join them too. They are a wonderful couple and I wish I had met them sooner. Raju and Geetha - thanks for putting up with me!

Even the vast disney campus was made to look small by the thousands of people who visited yesterday. It was not the best time to visit, but I prefer the company more than the occassion. We were not able to see a whole lot due to un-believable wait times of the lines, but enjoyed most part of it.

"Police" had to direct pedestrian traffic in the Main St. USA part of the Magic Kingdom.

Babies ruled the roost yesterday! Hundreds and hundreds of strollers were parked all over the park.

Ok...We would have liked to see more than just a few playful plastic pachyderms , but we took the little guys' spray in our stride!

And the fireworks!

Worth it!

Happy New Year everyone. I wish this year is more peaceful than all the previous ones.

P.S: I had a choice of either going to Orlando or to a New Year's Eve party. Boy, am I glad that I made the right choice yesterday and started the new year in a good way.
