The red Ambulance, snow and a really happy new year

Friday, January 1, 2010

It was new year's eve. I was on my daily commute, on my way to the university. Now, i have this really bad habit of noticing people from head to toe, i know, and it's one of my new year resolutions, not to. There was this man in front of me, in his mid thirties, a pair of fake new balances (haha) , a tracksuit, a cap.....

old habits die let me clarify, i was NOT checking the man out, no !! It was the object that he held on his hand that caught my eye, in an instant !!

it was a toy - a fiery red ambulance ! i know, a firetruck would have been sexier but there it was, an ambulance. It's holiday season here and they are celebrating Christmas on the 7th of Jan. The man gifting this little yet precious present to his son - wonderful !!

now, before you ask me what kind of a man goes to a shop to buy a gift, in his tracksuit - well, let me tell you, things around here have been tough financially and anyways, here in russia, it goes....

but that's of little significance, the man was shabby and the gift was inexpensive....but as they say, here it goes, it's the thought that counts.....i can well imagine the child's face the moment he gets his hands on this.... :)

I had a similar awe inspiring piece of machinery when i was a kid. It too was from my dad and this little incident here, it was like i was re-living that holiday ten years ago. It was one present that makes my childhood complete. I'm sure you have something that special yourself.

Oh, how i miss my family and the joy they bring to me!!

Speaking of joy, did you guys have a blast on the 31st ?? or maybe, today ??

We sure did, me & PP went to the piazza where all the celebrations were. There were fireworks at the stroke of midnight, a really good concert, Santa in blue (for a change) and there was snowfall.

Perfect :)

and talking about new year, my resolution for this year is that I'll be happy !!! Simple !!

Happy new year people - have a great one :)

Maybe I'm dying !

anyways, my hibernation is over, or so i hope ... but evrytime i say this, and that is quite often indeed, i see someone smirk.... YOU are demoralizing, you know that ?!
The general idea around the place is that i'm lazy with a capital L ..and a capital A, and a capital Z and so on ...

But that's one thing that i controvert vehemently , with all my pride and dignity ! I say, you may not be seeing me sloggin it out when others are neck deep in work ; but that's only because i like to do things my own way and i don't care if you label me a loner or something of that sort !

don't bother, you'll never understand me.

and now back to you good people.

well, we shifted to a new apartment last week. I like it ...lots of space, and a whole lot more peace.
Good for a loner you said?? well not if you know RNV n HP ....happy hour all day long !!

It was all good until we had arrived, all happy happy !
Now, the lady downstairs complains everyday, that her baby can't sleep because of all the commotion. We've seen the child, he's adorable....(i should put up a picture of him, but that can lead me to trouble, naah ).

So we decided to stop our midnight guitar sessions ! The music thingy is getting wasted 'coz we can't play it on loud ! :(

I guess sooner or later we had to become social ! sigh ...

and we were thinking of getting a pup. but wondered how we're gonna take care of him ...we'll be in college whole day and we can't just leave him all alone ...and what about when we'll go home next summer... had to drop the whole plan .... boo :(

My sister's getting married next week and i won't be there to celebrate ! boo hoo :(

I haven't heard from RedBull in a long long time ... depressing, very depressing ! boo hoo hoo :(

"i'm lucky to be in love with my best friend" ....lalalala
and Jason Mraz is not helping at all ...

Enough reasons for dying, eh ?


P.S I loved this, maybe you too will ..

Really depressing ...this song

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

The other day, i found myself listening to a track called "Hate Me" by Blue October ...a texas based band ...

It's kinda old news but i hadn't discovered this gem of a band before so... if you've heard them, then you don't need to read any farther, cuz you already know ...wiseguy !! :p

And i won't mince my words, this song actually made me feel terrible !! I put it on repeat and then felt good.. a sense of self pity that, in reality, makes you feel better !!

what will you term me as - a masochist ??

The song's about a son who asks his mother to hate him for all the pain he caused her, and maybe for the things he should've said to her...

well, but if you overlook that son & mom part (which i came to know only after watching the video :/ ) , then it takes on a whole new meaning ...

maybe if your having some kinda problem with your dearest one, then perhaps you'll be able to identify yourself with the protagonist... it's not too hard !

mine never calls me, so ...yea ... :D

anyways, maybe you should listen to the audio first in some site like ... the video spoils it man !! :)

take care

Look ma !! Your son's got a blog !!

whoa hello ,

am i even surprised to see you here !

it's the first post and i'm not sure whether anyone's ever gonna be bothered about reading this. The idea of a blog crossed my mind yesterday when i saw Devina's blog "the anger within Me" .. well, she's good, follow her .. and you'll be surprised to see the kid's so called "maturedness" ...i think that's a word that she hates :)

hey btw, thanks again for the inspiration, this first post is dedicated to you ...

basically, i'm going to write here about the goings-on around the place, and maybe whatever comes to my mind ... isn't that what blogs are supposed to be ?? i'm so doomed ...

and i'm really looking forward for your comments ... (another cliche ..erm)

and tips and suggestions too ....

in a couple of weeks i'm losing my beloved diary to someone special so i guess this is gonna be the place ...yay !!

take care
