  • Backstreet's BACK :/
    on Dec 17, 2009
    Just got back from a Backstreet Boys concert. Hilarious how four men with such astounding lack of talent got so far in life. :) Boy bands look a little silly anyway- no one plays any instruments so they all look like they're just bouncing around sing...
  • The Other Boleyn Girl
    on Sep 2, 2009 in books
    I just finished reading Philippa Gregory's "The Other Boleyn Girl". Quite a gripping book, really. I've discovered that I really like historical novels. This one was especially interesting because the story seemed very close to fact (or at least, ver...
  • Afterthought
    on Sep 2, 2009 in people life
    One other thought I had after reading 'The Other Boleyn Girl'. There may be a world of difference between the 16th and the 21st century, but in some ways life remains the same. Back then they made desperate bets about the king's mood. The direction o...
  • The Errant Electronics of my Household
    on Aug 14, 2009 in rant conspiracy theories
    I've come up with a rather chilling hypothesis that, try as I might, I cannot erase from my mind. I think my house is surrounded by a very large, impenetrable electromagnetic force field.No wait! Hear me out.What other explanation could there be for...
  • The Evolution of Chick-Lit
    on Aug 13, 2009 in books history
    In continuing my reading-marathon, I've picked up 'Villette' by Charlotte Bronte. It's more like a collection of stories and thoughts than even a story itself, since there are so many sub plots which may or may not link into the main plot but are int...
  • Explaining the Facebook Addiction
    on Aug 10, 2009 in psychology people facebook
    I read an interesting quote recently: "There are three stupid stages in life. During youth, one has time and energy but no money; during middle age, one has energy and money but no time; and in old age, one has money and time but no energy." Cute. Ex...
  • "Shantaram" - Gregory David Roberts
    on Aug 8, 2009 in india books
    I picked up this book, I'll admit, with a vague sense of complacency. Why not humor him, I thought. It's always touching- though faintly amusing- to read yet another account of my country written by a foreign visitor. He'll tell us about an overwhelm...
  • People-Watching vs. Power-Walking
    on Aug 7, 2009 in rant people
    Malls, parks, streets, museums, countrysides, cities, indoors, outdoors... they're all perfect opportunities for that gentle act of People-Watching: of musing, wondering, daydreaming, and generally taking the time to peacefully observe the eccentrici...
  • "Rani" by Jaishree Mishra
    on Aug 4, 2009 in india books history
    Just finished reading "Rani", which is a rather moving historical novel based on the life of the famous "Jhansi ki Rani."I did think it could have had more impact if it had been attacked more ruthlessly by an editor. It was a little slow moving; thi...
  • It's conformist to be non-conformist
    on Jun 3, 2009 in rant people life
    Fine, so back when Frost suggested it, it was a pretty interesting and unique idea to 'take the road less travelled'.Now, this mantra has been overused. It's degenerated to "forget putting any thought into whether the actual road you take will ever g...
