Happy Birthday !!!

It's been years I have lost in touch with my childhood friend but I still remember her birthday. I spent 11 years in school with her and today I have no means of getting in touch with her. It's her birthday today and I wish I could call her, drop her a mail, simply get in touch with her. Wherever you are I wish you a great day and a great year ahead. "Happy Birthday ...... L " (22nd April 2008). I haven't forgotten you or your birthday.

The Democrats have lost it

In a fight for the Oval Office the Democrats have already lost the elections, in my opinion. As of today when the Democrats still don't have a clear contender for the White House, the contest between Clinton and Obama is becoming more bitter each passing day. With a huge amount of mud slinging happening each day, the Clinton and Obama camp in a bid to out do each other are only managing to mar the image of the Democrats. What fails to be noticed by them is that eventually when one will emerge as the winner the other will not be left with the option to gracefully accept the loss and back the new candidate. As in the case of the Republicans after John McCain emerged as a winner the other candidates declared their complete backing for the new Republican candidate. It would only be a sham if either Clinton or Obama declare their support for the other after losing this leg of the elections. The credibility of the Democrats would be under the scanner with such a turn of events. In fact no matter who wins this round John McCain and the Republicans will probably have the last laugh.

Mistakes .....!!

My friend says when I repeat the same mistake over and over again, it's no longer a mistake, it's plain stupidity. What makes it worse is that I know she is right. To argue with someone you have to be convinced yourself that you are right and the other person wrong. However I know she is right and I am wrong. So you might wonder why I do it, I mean make the same mistakes, well maybe that's because that's my comfort zone. I am in familiar territories and I feel at home. Of course it's besides the point that it's stupid. In fact it goes beyond mistake, becomes a crime and eventually a sin.
At times I wonder what's with me. I am pretty adventurous (no nasty connotation please) and like to try out new things whenever given a chance. However when it comes to mistakes and yes, food I choose the tried and tested path. I am so incorrigible.

Life's Like That !!!!!

The past one week of my life was like a roller coaster ride. My confidence hit rock bottom, ego took a beating, I lost this one chance to make my life a little better and I wished for some time that I could just hit a "Reset" button of my life to start from scratch. Then things looked brighter again, I received some valuable advice from a mentor and some encouragement from a Gaming Guru. This was great. To see someone have faith in me, to have more faith in me than I have in myself was amazing. But undoing some past hurt and humiliation will take a while. Till then I will just have to go back into my shell and do what I do best....work and make it all real.

Groan !!!

I am fed up of reading mails and texts which have a bunch of English words put together in such a fantastic order that it fails to make any sense. How difficult is it to get hold of a "Wren and Martin" and get your verbs, nouns, adjectives and adverbs in order. A little attention paid to the tenses would not kill you. Please oh please do not kill the essence of a language by refusing to learn the grammar. The purpose of a language is to convey your thoughts and ideas. Learning a few words is good, but please do learn to string those words into a well framed sentence. Life's painful enough for me without being subjected to the torture of reading some junk and then trying to guess the meaning.
