Epiphany

Lying in bed, unable to sleep, I realised I always want what I can’t get. And once I have it, I’m not as interested any more.

This doesn’t seem to apply to my books though. 🙂

The Tax-man cometh. NOT!

The Guardian has this amazing story of how a New Zealander wreaked vengence on the income tax authorities after they wrongfully prosecuted him.

He bought the IT office, and then evicted them! 🙂

Beleive me try it out…….But at your own risk……Take care. Weak hearts dont try…………..

I am not willing to try so do let me know what happens.

Weird, huh? Well, I’m going to wait until midnight to call that number. In case you never see me blog here again, you know what happened! 😛

I’m writing a blog…

I saw this hilarious cartoon on Get Fuzzy.

For those not in the know, Get Fuzzy is a pretty cool newspaper strip about a cartoonist, his pet cat and dog. Sounds familiar? But unlike that other strip, this one is actually funny albeit in a sort of edgy way.

Weird

Reading Chris Anderson’s blog The Long Tail today I discovered that Wired News and Wired Magazine have been two different entities for the last eight years!

And all this while I’ve been subscribing to their feeds thinking they were Wired magazine feeds…

Wipe your feet, please.

I might as well have that written on my head the way people just walk all over me!

Do I look good in tights?

Unlike al_lude, I didn’t try to spot the “trick questions,” but they are pretty obvious, so I just answered some randomly and some truthfully. But hey, I don’t mind the outcome… 🙂

Blog? What’s that?

I just discovered that Blogger’s spellcheck doesn’t recognise blog or blogger as words and suggests block and blouse for the former and blocker, Bulgaria and bleaker for the latter!

Das Bounce

With all the time on my hands (sounds messy, doesn’t it? ok, ok, don’t groan!) and with no friends willing to help me spend it, I’ve been trying to figure out someway to kill it alone.

Usually I end up going for a movie, grab a bite to eat and head home. But all the movies showing are quite blah. Top of the blah list being “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” which I actually spent money on last week (including the super expensive snacks in the theatre.) What happened was I sat cramped in a corner seat surrounded by townie kids, and got bored through most of the movie except to appreciate the special effects. (Though I kept expecting the dragon to talk in Sean Connery’s voice, but all it did was bleat a bit. Oh, ok, it roared.)

So here’s my great idea for this weekend (and don’t tell me you thought of it already!) I’m going to bounce around the city on the local trains. Maybe pack a thermos of coffee and book and just sit on the train reading it. Since I have a season ticket, it won’t cost me anything. I don’t have to be worried about someone telling to get out (like they do in crowded cafe’s once you’ve finished your coffee) and I still get to see interesting people. That is, since its the weekend, I assume it won’t just be the yuppies going to the stock exchange to make their next million.

So that’s my plan for Sunday. Expect a post here saying what a stupid idea it was next week. (Of course, I’d expect comments telling me its stupid idea, but no one really comments here anymore.)
