iconator_81974403b92ca32b5a67efe2d6bd16abHi people. How’s life treating you? I’m on vacation now (officially) because all the crap entrance exams are done.

Here’s a story for you. My family is famous for it spur of the moment travel plans.We’ll be sitting at home one day and then next thing you know, I’m calling Fuzzy or BWC from were the hell ever I am. As a result of another such plan, I am now at my Granparents’ house in Gwalior. Either way, the random things I’m going to talk about are

1. Clown Cars

This is retaliation to this post written by my dearest brother over on his blog. Well, for one thing his facts are incorrect and biased. The car in question looks nothing like a Clown car, as he suggests. It is a Honda City, brand new and a gorgeous red. (I will post pictures when I get home.) I’m so excited! My dad and I go to this wide stretch of road near our school at 6 in the morning whenever we can and he gives me lessons. In three months I will officially be 18 and can get a license. I can’t wait.

2. Idol Watch

Vote Adam Lambert. That is all.

3. What I’m reading this week

51ynk-ze4wl_ss500_The Duchess by Amanda Foreman. I didn’t think it was a proper biography when I picked it up. I thought it was more along the lines  of The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir, which I adore by the way. Its more realistic (?) than The Lady Elizabeth. She sounds like a very interesting woman. I’m about a quarter of a way through and its good so far.

4. What I’m listening to (I’m pretending there are people actually interested in reading this)

(In no particular order of preference)

  1. Come Back to Me                               -David Cook
  2. Light on                                                -David Cook
  3. She Works Hard for The Money     -Kris Allen
  4. Sway                                                     -The Pussycat Dolls
  5. Falling Slowly                                     -Kris Allen
  6. Feeling Good                                      -Adam Lambert
  7. If I Can’t Have You                            -Adam Lambert
  8. The Way You Look Tonight             -Kris Allen
  9. Mad World (Studio version)           -Adam Lambert
  10. Free Falling                                         -John Mayer
  11. Born To Be Wild                                -Adam Lambert
  12. Mad World (Live)                              – Adam Lambert
  13. You Found Me                                     -The Fray
  14. Alone                                                     – Heart
  15. One Week                                             -Barenaked Ladies
  16. Kiss From A Rose                               -Seal
  17. Jolene                                                   -Alexis Grace
  18. With me                                               -Sum41
  19. Iris                                                        -The Goo Goo Dolls

As you can probably tell, I’m having a bit of an Idol phase here.

4. Other Stuff

When I started writing this I figured I would have more than just 3 random things but, Oh well.

L8r my loyal readers.

Hmm…a lot of interesting (and even more,crappy!) songs there,and my mind remains unchanged.

David Archuleta:

The seventeen year-old favourite (not in my opinion,but apparently..) did justice to all of his songs.I think we’ll be seeing him,next round.However,I do not think any of his renditions anything very special.Paula Abdul picked “And So It Goes,” Billy Joel -typical,ballad-y…overall? Good performance.His own choice of Chris Brown’s “With You” was,I thought, a refreshing change from the usual but Simon took the words right out of my mouth when he declared it to be very ‘Chihuahua plays Tiger’. The last one (Producer’s choice) was (that sickening load of mush) “Longer,” by Dan Fogelberg.Now I haven’t heard the original, but from David?It was..ugh!Not that the vocals were at all bad,but honestly:

” Longer than there’ve been fishes in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew

…Stronger than any mountain cathedral
Truer than any tree ever grew

..I’ve been in love with you.” ? ‘Nuff said,I think.Weirdos.


I’m just glad that so far,my Top 3 have been the Top 3.Although,like everyone else,I wish Carly had stayed longer (maybe #4 ?)and that Jason had just ‘sat around the campfire and sung the campfire song’ (Spongebob,anyone?).Right now I’m stuck for a decision between Syesha and David A.

Song List:
‘If I Ain’t Got You,” Alicia Keys (Randy’s pick) – Good one!
”Fever,” Peggy Lee – Again,she’s proved herself a pretty darn amazing singer and performer.And her vocal range,I’ve always been a fan of.I agree with Randy.Hmpf.
”Hit Me Up,” Gia Farrell– Honestly?Not lovin’ it.But, Ok.

David Cook (eeeeeeeep!OK,no..not really):

He still has my vote.Well,technically anyway- since I live in India.Sucks,no? Not really 🙂 Here’s hoping that our resident rocker doesn’t follow in Daughtry’s footsteps on this one,ah,thingy.

Song List:
‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” Roberta Flack(Simon‘s pick)- “Round one goes to Cook and Cowell..” (quoting Simon).Ha ha..is there any way I can vote Simon? Satan,I’m glad he’s back to agreeing with me.About the singing? I am trying very hard now not to sound like a frikkin’ fan girl but ‘omg,i love him’!And that,folks,is my unbiased opinion.For real.If he does not win,forget Hell,there’ll be me to pay!
”Dare You to Move,” Switchfoot -Appropriate,to quote him.Not his best,though.Not least because the original is freakin’ brilliant..
”I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing,” Aerosmith – Perfect.I back Paula’s prediction,and would like to direct Randy to http://www.honestlywhatsyourproblem.net.

(Also : did anyone notice how Paula didn’t just gush through it all this once? Usually, it’s all “You are so beautiful” and “I am so proud of you” regardless of the performance.Nice change.Keep it.)

So.Basically,I’m heading the Cookie Jar Cult and I’d be happy no matter who takes second.Long post,what?

I’ll be seeing ya.

The Gift, The Riddle, The Crow..etc. (Books of Pellinor) by Alisson Croggon
The Game World trilogy (Simoquin Prophecies, Manticore’s Secret, Unwaba Revelation) by Samit Basu. It’s an amazing trilogy by an Indian author where the cliched ‘good-defeats-evil’ and the ‘go-by-traditions’ of Indian authors isn’t seen.

Poets Of The Fall, Jesse McCartney, Nickelback and…. rest as Adzzie sed.
I was sooooo bored that I decided to write this??? Anyhoo, cyaz l8r.


Sweeney Todd (there’s a hole in the world like a gr8 black pit, And its filled with ppl who’re filled with shit, And the vermin of the world inhabit it…!) 🙂

My Favourite Colours (not-so-helpful but still..) in order:

Black, Grey, Navy (-blue-that I call by first name only), White, Teal.Well,anything that aint pink.Or yellow-ugh! Lookit what I found while looking for that one shade of red I like (it’s Rust by the way) ! I mean,seriously.37 pages on ‘Red’ ?What has the world come to? On the bright side,this proves that there’s people out there that are bored-er than I am.Yay.

‘ These Are A Few of My Favourite Things'(to do):

Music, Art, Throwball, Reading, Writing, Annoying people, Walking.. well,actually as long as I’m somewhere with no Other People,I don’t really have issues.
