Be Back Soon!

Hi guys!

I haven't quite posted in a while. Heck, I haven't even visited all your blogs that often, reason being that I'm giving my MBA interviews. So bear with me and I promise I'll be back soon coz I remember I'd left Alice on the verge of discovering wonderland and I'm very curious to know what happens there. So, on that short note,

BRB!

Be good y'all.

There's a thin line...

I'm the nice guy. 
I'm the one that sets everything aside 
if he sees you in trouble. 
I'm the one who puts things in perspective
the one who tells you to take it easy.
I'll bend over to accomodate your wishes
to see to it that you smile.
I'm the one that takes care of things,
each time there's something to be done.
I'll look for a million ways to satisfy you
A thousand means to make it happen.
I'm the one you turn to each time you're hurt.
I'm the go-to guy.
But there's a thin line.
And the day that line gets crossed......

Hang up already!!

I have that friend whom you never wanted to talk to and yet called him your friend. The one that would incessantly call you, ten times a day, daily, every day of the week and each time starts of with "Dude, what're you doing man?" YOU JUST CALLED AN HOUR BACK! I'M DOING THE SAME THING I WAS BACK THEN. SLEEPING! IT'S 12A.M. FOR FUCK'S SAKE! GET A LIFE!
The other day he called and went on and on and on and more on about the "freakin' ass sexy movie that will kill you coz it's so funny and you really have to watch it!" and then went on to repeat the dialogues from the movie and all the while me being the polite idiot don't say much and don't hang up either but all the while I'm screaming in my head YOU'RE TOTALLY WASTING THE MOVIE FOR ME AND I'M BETTER OFF NOT LISTENING HALF-ASSED ATTEMPTS AT RECITING A PUN AND I DON'T WANNA DIE EITHER!. Still, there's some hope for him in that he knows he does that. Yet he does it. Nope. No hope at all. Maybe I should hire a ninja to kill him. Yeah, just watched Ninja Assassin. On second thought, ninjas are too cool to kill him. I'll find a troll or something and let it loose outside his house :|

My school reunion is coming up this saturday! It's been more than five or six years since I've met all my old school buddies. It's gonna be awesome! Food, drinks, music, dance. And "Neha" will be there too :D Let's see if that dance works out for us even today xD Oh man! I can't even begin to think of the times I've had in those ten amazing years I spent in that white and blue building full of kids.
Can't wait! Can't wait! Can't wait!!!!
I'm gonna be all smiles all week long!!

Oh and Prince of Persia - The Sands of Time is releasing this weekend too! I gotta feeling this weekend is gonna turn out alright!

Oh and speaking of I gotta feeling, if you haven't already, you HAVE to check out this video.

Cheerios y'all!!

StupidAssistants start the summer!

Alrighty, even as Alice takes her red pill and everything goes blank around her, she's gonna take a little break. Actually I am. I have some pressing matters I have to attend to, and while that allows me to pen down my thoughts here, rant, rave, scream, shave...okay not shave..still, rhyming matters to me :|  Anyway, as I was saying, I'll continue to blog, but Alice will be taking a long-ish break outside wonderland.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Saw Alice in Wonderland yesterday. For the story revolving around Alice revisiting Wonderland, it wasn't as impressive as I'd expected. Still, Ron and I went for the movie simply coz we had nothing to do. Now, this one's a 3D movie and the movie hall was asking for a deposit of Rs.100 for a pair of 3D glasses which would be refunded when we leave the hall. Now this was probably the first time someone had ever asked me for a deposit for a pair of 3D glasses, 100 bucks no less! So I really didn't know how much to pay. But when I got to the front of the line, a lady came rushing through one side and demanded two pairs and paid 500 bucks. The man handing out the glasses paid her back the change, turned to us and asked, "How many?" "Give me two please." I replied. The man handed me two pairs of glasses, asked his assistant who was collecting the money whether we had paid or not. Get this, before I could say anything, the assistant actually said, "Yeah. They paid me!" I don't think I have ever felt the urge to laugh so hard as we walked away from the counter. I figured I'd simply refuse the refund saying I hadn't paid. After the movie ended, I was so engrossed in chatting with Ron that I handed the man my glasses, took 200 bucks for both our pairs and walked away. Only when we were out and onto the streets did we realize what had happened!

Movie tickets = Rs. 100
Getting a refund without paying a deposit = Rs. 100
Net cost of movie = Nil
Realizing that we'd watched a movie for free - Priceless!

There are somethings money can't buy. For everything else there's stupid assistants :P



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Summer's here!

It's that time of the year again!
of shorts and shirts, 
beaches and babes, 
mangoes and melons!
Humid work days,
warm weekend nights,
School's out, college too!
Everyone's home for summer vacations.
Christmas is cool, rains are wet,
but nothing like summer to make you sweat!

Enjoy the summer guys! Happy sweats!

Alice's Misadventures in Wonderland - Chapter 1

 "Let's see how deep this rabbit hole goes" said Alice, racing after him, her mouth wide open as the Rabbit with the Incredibly Large Butt jumped into the hole. "My word! That must be a huge hole for his butt to have fit in there." she said, and jumped right in.

Falling usually had it's benefits. For starters, you didn't need to dry your hair after a bath. The wind did it for you. Also it got mighty hard to breathe at times. The air had a ridiculous tendency to rush out of your lungs when you were falling, Alice observed. It irritated her slightly, but overall she didn't mind. But this hole was different. Alice noticed that she wasn't falling as fast as she wanted, and even though her skirt puffed up like a big umbrella, she didn't think it was the cause of her oh-so-slow fall. As she looked around, curious sights met her eyes. There was a man in red and blue spandex with black webby patterns crawling down one side and he waved out to her and threw her a Mars bar. Alice loved Mars bars and smiled back although she couldn't quite figure out where he'd pulled that bar our from in the first place. Those tight spandex really did stick to every part of your body...*ahem* On her way down,  she glimpsed a few more almost-familiar faces - A Man in a Brown Paper Bag Mask duelling with Three Blind Mice With Swords, a young man in an alarmingly revealing yellow underwear yelling at the top of his voice and beating his chest, and an attractive young boy named Repeater Pan who, every time he laughed, floated up a few feet and fell down again. Couple of hundred tantrums, yawns, a few long naps, some candy from the nearby trees and fifteen and three quarter hours later, Alice looked down to finally spy the ground.

Slowly but steadily, Alice dropped onto the ground and started dusting her dress when she realized there was a table close by. And it wasn't just a table, it was a Round Table. And on one side of it sat a bald black guy wearing a long leather coat and dark sunglasses without rims.

"Miss Alice. Welcome.", he said in a monotonous voice.

Alice was quite surprised when the man spoke her name. But she was a smart girl and regained her composure soon, and since she'd been taught manners well by her governess, she curtsied.

"Hello sir, may I know how you know my name?" she asked.

The man sat up in his seat, adjusted his glasses, wiped his bald head with a lace handkerchief and spoke.
"Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain. But you feel it. That there's something wrong with this world. You don't know what it is, but it's there. Like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?"

"Why no sir, I don't know what you're talking about. I was chasing the Rabbit with the Incredibly Large Butt when I fell into this hole." said innocent Alice.

"Ooh that Rabbit! I'm gonna whoop his white ass when I meet him again...ahem...sorry, pardon my language. Where was I?"

"You were telling me why I'm here."

"Oh yeah...well, here are two pills. You take the blue pill, the story ends. You wake up in your bed and believe…whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes."

"But sir, to be honest, we're at the bottom of the hole. I already know how deep it is."

"Pick one!!"

"Which one? I can't decide!"

"ANY ONE dammit! Just choose!"

"Don't pressurize me!"

"Choose will you! I'll lose hair with all this stress."

"You already are bald!"

"Shut up and pick one already!"

"Okay."

So saying, Alice chose the red pill.

Dedication to all you guys!

Hey!

Been a long time!

I guess I forgot how much I love this blog of mine. Well, not quite. I can never forget this place.
But I procrastinate :| Probably coz I've been so darn busy, what with MBA entrances and guitar lessons and a hundred other things on my To-do list that I've put off for AGES and piled up on top of each other. Those of you on my facebook list, I've managed to keep in touch... but all you bloggers here are the ones that I missed so much! And more than blogging, I've missed reading all my favourite blogs! Right from Abhinav's Slogs of witty sarcasms to Madhuri's weird and wonderful che-isms(and lately her dad's too :D ), Nidhi's filmi romantic posts that are too sweet(and sometimes confused :D ) to Peter's peterosophies and some really good vibes, Mysterg's current round the world trip and his adventures, Cheryl's hilarious and smartass stories of her life(and she got me saying the word Awesome too much..so did Barney Stinson, but that's different), Insignia and her latest rib-tickling misadventures with grammar and what not, Esther's super-cute posts filled with love from her big heart, Ana's obsession with Raccoons and animal nicknames, Annie's musings, Prince's silent contemplations (that speak louder than any spoken word), Sapna's world thru her unfettered eyes, Kajal who got me inspired enough to write poetry and who has given a glimpse into the real soul of a woman, Sally with her superb narratives without any(I mean ANY) adult supervision ;) , Chriz's crazy stories that leave me laughing my ass off(though I rarely comment :P ), Divsi's simple stories of the simple people she meets(and leaves with a smile), Dewdrop simply coz she sparkles in the sunlight(in the beautiful way, not like sucky Edward Cullen :P )....

Oh there are SO many of you, I can keep going on and on. For those whom I've mentioned here, you're truly wonderful , awesome, kickassly fantabulous! And you know it. For those of you whom I haven't mentioned here, that's simply because I have probably not read you enough to write an opinion here. Rest assured, I'll dedicate many more posts to all you guys :)

I wanted this to be my 100th post, thanking everyone, but today, it felt right. I started blogging from a coffee shop, my very first post. And right now, I'm sitting in a coffee shop as well, alone, lost in my thoughts, relaxed, sipping an Iced Mocha. It simply feels right that I dedicate this moment of black and white flashback on a 14" television to all you wonderful readers and writers who inspired me, made me laugh, cry, think, forget to think.

From me and my Mocha,
Thanks =)

;-)
