Technically summer has arrived although the weather has been dull with cloudy skies and intermittent drizzles. I also happen to be one of those (few?) people who likes dull weather. And if there is no reason to feel depressed then this weather actually makes me happy, energetic and cheerful…like I have downed a six-pack of red bull or something. I don't mean to be disrespectful but I am definitely not a big fan of the sun.
Another reason to be “happy” ..its summer break and I am not taking any classes. In fact, doing nothing (much) yet getting paid double. How often does something like that happen? So yea …I feel good. Now I don’t know how soon before boredom sets in. There is the danger of that happening you know. I guess that’s when friends come in handy (*wicked grin). Then there are the movies. Books might help too, although of late I am not so much into books. It could be because I didn’t come across anything nice and gripping. The last one I read was …can’t remember. But since then I have discarded many books barely making it to the first few pages. BORING!
So that leaves the movies and music. Music is always there…its like saying I eat everyday or sleep everyday. Whatever…Movies!- gosh where are the good ones gone? Recently saw black and white (Anil Kapoor et al.). Could have been a nice one if only it was well made! The new guy is kind of good looking- the dark, quiet and mysterious types. Well of course he is portraying a terrorist on a suicide mission! What else to expect. Duh!
It feels strange that I am typing this post. Have been away from blogging for so long. I am actually at work with nothing to do and just finished seeing Knocked Up. Yes..you can do that when there is an empty office with a good set of ear phones. Hysterical movie most of the time and sometimes your mind goes ‘this is too much’! Obviously blogging is also an option when boredom sets in.
A recent cool development in life has been acquiring a membership at the local public library. Books are free and movies cost only $1 for a week. The sweetest part- they have an awesome collection of globe trekker series. So far saw Bolivia, Central China, India, South West China, Central Asia and Cambodia and ever more in love with Ian Wright. Oh yea..traveled far and wide all in $6 (that was supposed to be the official pathetic-loser- line of the post).
I have also been writing to some friends. One guy told me he is going fish counting next week by the river. Another one is leaving for San Francisco on a new job and another one lost her mobile with all her friends’ numbers in it. One even got married and got a lifer paradoxically speaking :P.
Besides all this - I miss some of my old blog mates, my skin has become a shade darker (the darn sun!), my hair has grown too long to my liking and last but not the least I discovered I love Vietnamese food (I recommend their Pho ( a kind of rice noodle soup).
Joy to all.
