Mood swings

The error message on my screen was glaring at me .I was glaring back at it with equal force.If anybody had been watching us both(me and the bug) at that moment..they wudve probably exclaimed "sabaash!!seriyaana potti".I was chewing my nails like Ive been starving for days.Never have I cursed like this in my life before.
Guess you can imagine my very mad bad mental state.*grrr*Anger!!Frustration!!!
It was then that I decided to put on some music.And my!!Must say its real magic..It completely reversed my mood!!Anger,frustration ..po ye pochu..poi indhi..Its gone!!
The particular song I was listening to was "Thank you" by Dido..Soothing is the right word.
And then after that thought konjam namma songs kekalaam..nothing to beat Ilayaraja' music!!!
I just have no words to describe it..some of his completely mesmerizes u...
takes u to a different world..appadi dhaan naanum for sometime went away from my bug world..(mannichikonga my thanglish) It just lay there forgotten...
then realised edhu velai put on some very non distracting music..u know.. its just there but u actually dont listen to it..It was Britney spear's "Baby one more time" hey brit!!we know u r completely turned on..if u try to do that effect li'l more ur throat is gonna tear!!
How can anybody enjoy this music?It totally gets on to my nerves...Die hard fans of her, my heart felt apologies!!but iam sorry Iam simply not able to appreciate it as mujick!!hmph..
On the other hand I have been listening to the theme music of Punnagai mannan the whole day today.Guess I wudve replayed it a zillion times.Its still playing in my head.It sorta feels like how ull feel when ur crush talked to u the first time *smile*

ok!Guess turning it off will do some good to me..

Cubicle life

Its been a year since I got into this whole cubicle thing.Wuz just thinking how much it really gets to you..slowly.It has its many effects.You start changing and you are really not aware of it..
Like, I just started realising how much more comfortable Iam when conversing thru mails n chat..the virtual stuff..I am quite not the same when talkin er..face to face..or on the phone..
All I can seem to get out of my mouth is Hello,Hi,oohh!!,oh,and bye
This is what happened sometime back..a friend of mine..we regularly keep exchanging mails..and suddenly friend's face pops near my desk..And one look at my face n straight about turn!!I was left wondering..then I just waved it off... After sometime a mail arrives.. and it said ..."What was that expression on your face when I came to your desk..Guess u didnt like me coming..hmph"...I was totally @#$%#..
I dunno what my face showed or didnt show.That was when I suddenly started wishing for emoticons..How much more easier it wudve been!!I cudve just showed one of those EEs ..I mean this :D

And then comes the other things.My dad asks "Enna..Kalyanathukku paakalama??" And I go like "Eppo vendam paa" (like everyone else)
My dad shows the eye to my mom and she comes slowly behind me..and says "Boyfriend love nnu edhuvum ellaye?" with that worried "Guruvayurappa!!Show my daughter the right path" look on her face..and the only answer I can give to that is "Ehhh??"..
Er..Hello..How do I make my parents understand that with my kinda social life which is practically non existant..the only way Ill end up with a boy friend is if he is downloadable..

Life just seems to revolve around my cubicle.Its kinda addictive in some ways.
You dont really feel like getting out.
One year has done this to me..I just hope things dont become any worser..

Anyways Belated Happy Valentines Day !! :) I could not resist using the pink.

Black is awesome.Let me talk about Rani first.She has done a wonderful job.Rani has expressed pain, joy, love and pride so beautifully.Hats off to her.She brings tears to your eyes many times during the movie.She will definetely win many awards for this.And Amitabh too.I should say that it is one of his best movies.Too bad people are going to talk more about Rani.I just hope he gets equally noticed too.They both have lived the characters.And not only Rani ,Amitabh, but everyone in the movie.The characters just pass on what they feel to you.The woman who plays Rani's mother is great too!There is this scene when mother and child meet after a span of 20 days of separation.The joy in the mother's eyes is so evident..every expression is captured beautifully.

The movie itself is very different..Its about a girl who is blind n deaf and how her teacher changes her life and she his.I wouldn't want to say anything more than this.Its quite a short film.And its so unlike any other Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie.It hardly has any colour in it except of course Black.

The best thing about the movie is that when you leave the movie hall u dont feel bad and sympathise physically handicapped people.Rather makes you feel that anything is possible.

Very touching.Esp for me since the previous movie I watched was Thirupaachi ,this was like water in the desert.

And Yeah!there will be some who might not like it too.Its kinda arty and more like a documentary.It doesnt have the least bit of commercialism.So if you expect something with comedy and romance and girls dancing around in skimpy clothes then Black is not the one.

Why do men smoke...?

..And note when I say I only men..I mean in public places.And the no of women smokers (in India) is so less that it is negligible.So the question is quite fair.
I think men like to smoke especially in public places.They would never get that kick if they had to sneak in to their bathrooms with a cig.This is the only reason I see.Its what they call bundha,style...makes them feel like a stud.Its got more to do with the psychology.How much can some tobacco make a person feel better?I dont think it even gets you high!!
Its especially irritating when people smoke in public places which is quite high in Bangalore.Like the other day..Iam sure I wudve smoked an entire beedi(of all things!!)...Zillion thanks to the old man walking in front of me..Would always reappear how much ever I tried dodging.
Cigarette smoking is injurious to health" and atleast smoking in public places is totally the smoker and the people around also.

PS:If I have insulted smoking....and you were offended by deep apologies..Its only to due to my lack of experience and was not intentional :)
