A passing thought

Two years too late she realised she was just like an enticing flower in the wild to him-exotic, vibrant and almost seductive. All he did was admire her from a distance without actually wishing to take her home. Two years too late, she realised she had been living just the passing thought of a wanderer.

That was for you Zypsy, my story of 55 words. Sorry, I have been postponing it. I know it sucks but thats creativity at the moment. I am not tagging anyone. Anybody can do it.


We are celebrating Diwali today as we are not working for the next 5 days. How compromising God is!!

I am in a red saree. It was made a rule that those who do not come in ethnic wear will not get samosas and sweets. Naturally, I had to wear. It is going to be a long week-end and lonely one for me. J has gone home, 1 room-mate has also gone.

Visiting the orphanage with the Burmese roomie.

Wish you all a happy Diwali.

Going through a personal crisis too. I pray to God to give me one more day and a little more strength to face it all. On the left side of my chest, something pumps. ouch!!!!

Well, what’s pain if it was so easy to bear?

(people, I'll get back to my cheerful self soon.)

if it is of any consolation for the first time ever i won't be home for diwali and both my roomies are not in town :(. I am planning to counter this lonliness by watching movies ( pvr is close by for me ) and browsing books at blossoms.

please share any other ideas to counter depression that is a side effect of being lonely.

i rejected the idea of being holed up in my room with a bottle of scotch - too expensive,will still be spending time alone and don't even have nice glasses.

hmmm... well I can't help... but use one of my all time favourite quote here! Though this may not be the ideal place for such dialogbaazi... I hope you'd appreciate this.

This is from Conan, the Barbarian... one of the early awful movies of Arnold Schwarzennegggaaahhhh....
