I'm Still Bored...

I hate the Orkut team at Google... I mean whoever got the brainwave to come up with locks on scrapbooks and albums...?!?? I lose out on soooo much of gossip and scandalous pics because of these stupid locks..! I know these have been on since a long time... but, in times when one has a  vacation and has practinally nothing of national significance to do... what does one do?? Obviously roam around on Orkut! But these stupid locks!!! But, on second thoughts, Orkut sucks... no one comes online... I got only 3 scraps in like a month!! Once upon a time, I used to be getting 13 in a second... yeah, been of a popular type always!! Guess everyone's shifted to Facebook. Facebook was fun... only during exams... taking stupid quizzes, poking people, joining groups, becoming fans and everything was fun then.... but now.. even that sucks! There are STUPID quizzes on FB like...

1)
When will you die... I was supposed to die on 19 October 2008... 3 days after my 20th birthday... but I'm still alive...!! 
2)Will you get swine flu? I didn't even bother to take this quiz.... Swine flu's already played spoilsport in my vacation plans... I'm sure Ankita will agree with me...Dudette, don't worry, we'll go to Greece together!
3)How gay are you.... S.P.E.E.C.H.L.E.S.S ........ coaxed a couple of guy friends to take the quiz...!! I wonder what would Zac Efron and K-Jo's quiz results look like??
4)What type of a shoe are you?? I guess what type of shoe will you throw would be more germane! I wonder how and why haven't there been shoes thrown in during IPL matches...they suck anyways!
5)Which molecule are you... I remember having taken this quiz... I was H20...!

There are many more.... try them... some are really intriguing!!!


I'm so bored! No calls... no messages... but then, I'm used to this... no one calls me anyways, except ofcourse when they're in a mess, or they've fought with their gf/bf/friend who's more than a friend/etc but now, not even that.... I'm bored of not dishing out advice... Even my sis has stopped calling me freeadvice.com ....... please yaar koi toh advice ke liye aao...! But it looks like I'm gonna be needing a lot of advice... as in what to do next...!! I'm so confused... thought I'd sit at home for a month and place things properly.... but... After meeting people in the wedding, I'm too wary of sitting at home and doing nothing... for all you may know, I might be dragged into the ladko ko milo, dekho, jaan lo, pehchan lo routine ( But no, my parents love me too much to marry me off before I'm 24!)!! But then being indecisive comes naturally to Librans... we don't have to try too hard!! I'm sure Rads will agree.... have pestered her for years... call karu ki nahi....message kar deti hoon...please temme what to do..I'm confused!!. God!! I miss those days... SP was fun!!

No good movies also to see. Saw
Welcome To Sajjanpur.... its a tad slow.... but a must watch. The songs are good too...!  I love diamonds... I mean... I'm yet to meet a girl who doesn't like diamonds! But now, after watching Blood Diamond, I feel guilty about diamonds.......... but diamonds are diamonds.... they're pretty... but then, now I know that they've cost someone their blood...so now, I'll buy conflict free diamonds!!. Saw a bit of Delhi Heights... I guess its the only movie where Neha Dhupia is tolerable...!! the songs are pretty good... especially Kitni Der Tak and Tere Bin. Aanch, it'll be a double treat for you... it's got Samrat and Kinshuk Mahajan!!!
 

I really need to watch some good movies and read a good book. I'm reading
The White Tiger .. by Aravind Adiga... but I'm disappointed with it. I don't like his writing stlye... not even one bit. The story seems to be good, but the writing style is killing it. For a story, the way it's written makes or breaks the story..like Harry Potter and Chetan Bhagat novels... not great stories... but their writing styles are so captivating that you can't keep the book down until it's over! This is where Aravind loses it... atleast with me... the book's been with me since the past one week but all I've been able to read is only 60 pages!! If Khaled Hosseini had written this book, trust me, the story would've gone to a completely different level. But this is only my opinion..... there have been a lot of other people who've liked it... ! I'm dying to read a good book.... a really really good book.... which I can't put down till it's over.... BTW, there's this not-so-talked about book, Bombay Rains, Bombay Girls, by Anirban Bose about a medical student from Ranchi who's studying at JJ Hospital... pretty neat read... very light... time pass reading types! But it's got this one line which answers the question Ankita asked me months back in our "private lab" to which I didn't have an answer... she asked, "What exactly is love" and I just couldn't describe it... but this book says it very beautifully in just one line, "Love is everything you want it to be, and nothing you don't!" Wonderful. But, you need to experience love to understand the beauty of this sentence. So if you have any suggestions on what I should read after dumping The White Tiger... please post a comment!!

I had mentioned writing a new story... I even created a new blog for it... but now, I've dumped the idea of writing it... it's too close to my heart... the story... but then for a change, I listened to Rao... he had told me, "Close the chapter and throw the book."  That's what I did Rao....  I closed the chapter, finished the story, burnt the book... and blew away the ashes... But the "happily ever after" is still left... and one day, I'll get the perfect and they lived happily ever after for my story!!

So till next post... keep reading, commenting, breathing, talking, coming online and praying that Orkut scraps off its locks!!!

P.S: Punjab's No. 2 on the rankings table.... my interest in IPL is back..... and Irfan was looking soooooooooooooooooooooo HOT in the last over against KKR... responiblity makes guys look hot!!!

Arslan said...

Had me in splits as usual! :D

I'll avoid the temptation to suggest my blog as reading material :P, and mention 'Winner Stands Alone' by Paulo Coelho. I've only read 'Alchemist' by Coelho, and wasn't an instant fan. I know most people love it. But this book is pretty different from 'Alchemist'. Its about an obsessed lover trying to get back his ex-wife by doing some pretty destructive stuff. Also its a bit cynical of the movie, fashion, celebrity world. But worth reading, especially if you're as bored as you claim to be.

And I know how it is to avoid writing stuff thats too personal. I deal with it all the time.

Hey, so SORRY about that! Using a new laptop (MacBook) and a slow internet connection caused it. Ok, my stupidity was also involved. :|
