Celebrating Friends B’day @ one of our favourite Coffee Shop… MOCHA
Although everytime we decide tht we wont celebrate any more b’days there, but we end up cutting the cake @ Mocha.(Basically its very close-by & we are lazy ppl)

We really love it there, have a lot of good memories attached to that place… 🙂

I hope this is the last b’day cake from MOCHA.

Regular Expressions…

Firstly, I would like to apologize to all nerds & techies, who thought that this post was gonna be of any help to them.

Secondly, Insight:
Life as a Software Engineer can be pretty boring if you don’t find ways to keep yourself occupied by doing something or other. When I signed up with my current employer; I was lucky to find a good project (Stop tittering [am so proud of myself, for using tht word] ppl, its true) & some good frenz. We did a lot of TP & less of work (but mind you the work we did was Quality Work [literally, we were in the Quality Dept.]). I spent 2 of my valuable yrs in the same project doing nothing & everything. One fine day the Org. decided to dissolve our Dept. & sadly our team was broken & i was released to another team. Suddenly i was all alone & I wondered that it would have been better if i didn’t have such a awesome team in the beginning, “Coz My Loneliness was Killing me Day & Night, I must confess i still believe….(thanks Britney)”.

Bret Lee, Start:
I have come up with a way to fight boredom when I have less/no work (I have not invented anything here, just using what was already there). I use it only when am not blogging / commenting on blogs/ orkutting / checking mails / playing carom(one of my favorite) & I still find time; amazing isn’t it 😉 . It’s a very simple method. Just observe your environment (observe guys… don’t ogle/stare); gaze @ people around you, observe their expressions. Different ppl have different expressions; some look happy, some sad, some mad, some tense, some intense, some carefree,etc….. happy looking ppl are very rare, most of my specimens are tense (coz am an IT guy & 70% of ppl here are tense & rest are Fukats…. 😀 ) . This technique / method / whatever unwinds your mind (to some extend) & u’ll certainly feel rejuvenated (atleast i feel so). If by chances they (your subjects [not the subject from ur email or the one from Munnabhai MMBS]) catch you staring (I mean looking), don’t be embarrassed or don’t try to look away. Just look them in the eye & give them a good smile, they’ll for sure give u a smile back (most of the time) .

Shane Lee, End:

Mind you only try this only if you have ample time to invest (10-15mins on an avg. 3-4 times a day). This technique / method / whatever is highly addictive. If not used properly u can end up spending most of your time practicing it.

Best place to practice is in Best buses… (wah wah)

MTV Roadies…

February 16, 2007 28 comments

Hi guys,

I know this post has come out very late, but its “Better late than Never”.
So here it goes:

A post on MTV Roadies.

Its been four years since this show started & i feel this year (read 4th year) was the best. By best i mean it had right amount mirch-masala to get me hooked on to it rite till the end; last but by no means least were the participants or Roadies (as they are called). Even tasks which were performed by the Roadies were interesting.

There are 13 roadies in the start, but only one can win the Crown. To be a roadie you dont have to be beautiful/handsome, here you are supposed to be mean, manipulative & alweyz be ready to use all the dirty tricks in the book to pin down your opponents.

Of all the roadies, there was one roadie who stood out from the rest & that was Gurbani Judge(a.k.a. BANI) (for those who don’t know her can close their browser window… #@$@#$@#). She might have not won the Roadie Title, but she has surely won a million hearts. All the roadies tried their best to kick her out, but fate (or producers) wanted something else. She would somehow escape every vote-out by a whisker & finally emerged as the runner-up & rest of the participants could only abuse & bitch abt her. Best thing abt Bani was her “I dont care” attitude. She never gave a fuck abt wht others thought abt her… (jst like me…) 😀

Moving ahead; the second roadie i liked most is Rupali/Roopali….. Man she is soooo cute, i just love her chubby cheeks & the way she irritated my first love BANI. She was also a tough contender for the Crown, until she was knocked out of the show by BANI. I felt so bad when she was out, tht i ate 2 times of my regular dinner… 😦

Next on the Like list are Sonam, Sahil, Anthony & Raj… These ppl where also good & were great competitors.

Now the Hate List , guess wht POONAM rules the roost, i hate her from bottom of my everything. I dont wanna vent out my feelings abt her on this Family Blog, but by now u ppl must hav a clue of wht i feel abt her.

All in all it was an entertaining show to watch, without ur parents ofcourse…
I hope I did mention tht Anthony won the Crown and he’s MTV‘s Roadie 4 winner.

For Die-Hard BANI fans, this is Bani’s profile on Orkut.

You’re Beautiful – James Blunt

January 27, 2007 11 comments

Hi all,

 

I was sitting @ home & reading newspaper, when my brother played this song on my computer. I put the paper down & started listening to the song. The lyrics hit me like a bullet. I could actually relate to it… 🙂 or 😦

 

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I’m sure.
She smiled at me on the subway (in the basement).
She was with another man.
But I won’t lose no sleep on that,
‘Cause I’ve got a plan.

You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw you face in a crowded place (MBP canteen),
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I’ll never be with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Fucking high,
And I don’t think that I’ll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.


You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
I saw you face in a crowded place,
And I don’t know what to do,
‘Cause I’ll never be with you.
You’re beautiful. You’re beautiful.
You’re beautiful, it’s true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it’s time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.

A small review…

December 13, 2006 6 comments

Hi ppl,

Ok now don’t start making those faces, when you read the word review, I know that the Appraisal 🙂 are round the corner but this blog was created for some purpose (about which I myself have no clue) & the purpose is not Appraisal review for sure. Now the review is not any book that I have read recently, the book review department is handled by mattu and she is damn good @ it. So now wht is this post about???

This post is a small review on the English Premier League (EPL) teams that have managed to qualify for the UEFA Championship League Cup. Major teams from EPL namely Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool & ManU have qualified for the Cup. This is happening for the first time since I started watching Football that so many teams from EPL have qualified for the Cup. Majority of the time teams from Italian League, Spanish la liga, Bundesliga are the people who rule roost @ UEFA. Now let me start with the (so-called) review.

1. Chelsea: Hmmm …… This happens to be my very favorite team. But lately they have been playing poorly. The fire to win is lacking in them. In their last match against Arsenal, they looked like 11 men playing against one Arsenal team. They need to get their rhythm back, if they want to bring the gold home for the very first time. They have enough talent in-house to make it to the top.
HAIL CHELSEA!!! 😀

2. Arsenal: Last year’s finalist. This team is the one to watch out for, they are the underdogs. Unlike Chelsea/Liverpool/ManU they don’t have stars in their line-up expect for Henry, but they do have a bunch of talented young fellows in their gang. With a manager like Wenger the boys can give the toughest team a run for their money.

3. Liverpool: This has been a bad year for former UEFA Champions; they are going through a bad phase in EPL too. They have good players just like Chelsea, but the chemistry is missing, they need to gel with each other, coz there are many foreign players in their team. Steven Gerrard also needs to get back in form, coz he’s their whole n soul.

4. ManU: (I hate myself for saying this) ManU is the one of the strongest team in the whole Championship & if they keep playing the way they are now, nobody can stop them. This season they are @ top of their form. Everything is in place for them; all they need is to play according to the plan.

People, you are free to voice your concerns or suggestions on my review.

What does RSVP stand for?

November 23, 2006 15 comments

Let’s Clear Up the Confusion

I hope that this week’s tip will benefit hosts and guests alike, because there seems to be a lot of confusion about the meaning of the above term.

Lack of RSVP’s – A Growing Problem

I hear more and more often, and have found in my personal experience, that hosts often do not receive firm indications whether guests plan to attend their parties, even if R.S.V.P. is clearly printed on the invitation. This could mean either one of two things. First it could mean that rudeness is a growing trend in our society. Or, as I would prefer to believe, people no longer understand what the term means. Assuming the best, and that the decline in R.S.V.P.’s can be attributed to ignorance and not rudeness, I will clarify this for the record.

What RSVP Means

The term R.S.V.P. comes from the French expression “répondez s’il vous plaît”, meaning “please respond”. If R.S.V.P. is written on an invitation it means the invited guest must tell the host whether or not they plan to attend the party. It does not mean to respond only if you’re coming, and it does not mean respond only if you’re not coming (the expression “regrets only” is reserved for that instance). It means the host needs a definite head count for the planned event, and needs it by the date specified on the invitation.
