Hi pplz! I’m writing from my aunt’s place in Harrow in London. Its 6:20pm here in London must be past 10 in India. We flew from Chennai at about 5:30 am IST so I had to stay awake until then. This is the first time that I’ve experienced the “staying up all night” thing and let me tell you, it ain’t fun. By the time we went for the security check (we reached the airport by 2 am), I had red eyes and was falling asleep on my feet.

Things I learnt:

a. 10 1/2 hr flights are not a good idea.

b. Stupid plane ppl have no idea how big real actual humans are because the seats in the planes are for leetal alien things!

c. Do not fall asleep with your feet up for 6 hrs. Your knees will hurt like you’re 70!

d. Always carry a jacket on these long thingies coz its cold enough for an Eskimo. Bleh! I sneezed the entire time!

I was ecstatic when we finally got here! Then we had to go through the dog test. The dog test is ,after passport control, when you reach baggage claim and there are these huge black dogs that sniff you!!! And if you know me you’ll know I share Adzzie’s canine-o-phobia! *shudder*

e. I realized how much I really like this city. I might even call it my second most favorite city in the world, after Chennai. Although I don’t really care for all the repetitiveness. All the houses look the same. But the shopping rocks!(Adzzie, stop glaring at me!!)

P.S. I hate UK keyboards! The keys are in all the wrong places!!

So, not a very interesting day but whatever…

What the title says.

Pondicherry was fun.It’s a real sleepy place so if you’re looking to get away from it all, Auroville is where to be.Although personally? My,ah,’dream vacation’ would run something more along the lines of trekking and rucksacks, so yeah.:( What with the very limited tourist sites and everything, we sort of lived on the beach for a whole half-day;pretty nice beach too.We clambered down the rocks you see there, managed not to die and my dad got thoroughly drenched (he was trying to pull off some of the moss that grew on them for examination-doctors!)

Oh!Oh!Guess who got their question answered on foreveramber?

This here is Rubinman(The Dawg Wid Da Blawg) for whom I’m almost ready to shed my canine-o-phobia :

Rawr!Ha ha.

And now for the much-awaited explanations for my,ah,slightly unconventional funeral:

1.The syntex tank( ) – I drew inspiration from some historic dead-guy (whatsisname?) ,although his was a very-how’d you say,’normal’ (?) sort of a tank.

2. Black-duh.The rest is because I am a Linkin Park fan (but Mike’s the artiste, hence the privilege.)

3.This one’s from the time we watched..? Peace Maker,I think and my wife noticed how only one of the coffins’ occupants thought to install a seat.. And I’m obviously too important to be left out.

4. ‘Used’? Used ?! Dear girl, it’s practically admittance fee!

5.If you knew Fuzzylogic, you’d want to be there for it, too.On second thought, Tutu-Princess (*straight face*) ? Meet you at my deathbed!

6.Well,if you knew her…! (In case she’s reading this: Ohh..ah, hi!! Just my little joke,hee?)

Xlucidsanityx is right about the haunting.Absconders will be persecuted (no, not prosecuted) and generally tortured.<insert cackle>
