Hola people! If you read stuff here regularly, you will probably know that we practiacally live on the beach here and if you didn’t, you know now anyway. So. Here are some pictures we took when we went on one of our early morning excursions to the beach.
Of course, The Monument!
The Sky...and some buldings
Yup! Its looks a lot nicer without the Others. Its really good weather in the mornings there though,but only till about 7 am before it goes back to its usual boiling hot status.
We went to the beach again today (You may groan) and it was really nice and breezy. That is, before it started raining. So, we ran into the nearest coffee shop and ordered stuff. But then, there was a blackout! Yes, that was an exclamation point because something happened to us! We nearly got stranded!
Can you sense the desperation there?
Anyway, that was our great Adventure of the day.
In other unrelated news, Fuzzy is now an honorary College student, with an ID and everything. Yay for her! Although she has to keep the ID safe for 4 years, which, in her case, is nearly impossible. Good Luck anyway! 😉
BWC and I on the other hand have to still be formally admitted into ours. Yup, soon we’ll be busy, busy college students.
We are doing something now though. We’ve decided to reread the Harry Potter books, which were a major part of our collective childhood(?) and also the thing we all had in common when we first met, and basically talk about and, to use a cliche (Beacuse I Want To :P) relive the magic!
That’s all for now I guess. Catch ya later!

Hello my people!
So. How’ve you been? Our extremely long hiatus concludes today (hopefully) with this post. As per usual, blame the exams.
Anyone who was worried that we were dead can,rest assured, stop doing so.
Now, to the title of this post. During the holidays, we’ve taken to occasionally (read: twice) meeting in the morning at the beach, having breakfast at a local idli joint and then walking about Besant Nagar. The last time we did this, yesterday, We took a bunch of pictures and here they are, under the jump.
In other news, some of us (Fuzzy) are preparing for the various entrance exams we have to write in order to get ito a decent college while the rest of us are lazing about doing nothing and basically being annoyed about the stupid exams we have to write and are not studying for.
So life’s a bit crappy at the moment.
Here’s hoping for improvement in the future.

Before You Read: This post was due to be posted arounnd the Second Of January (Hence the Christmas and New Year references) and was delayed because of the craziness that are the exams. So, here it is, better late than never right??
Hi hi!! I’m baaa…ck! Happy New Year to everyone. Thus ends a truly crappy year, though it will only properly end when March 24th comes around, which,by the way, is when my boards get done.
So, anyway I figure I had a better Christmas than the rest of the whiners and should really spread the joy!
We went to Kodaikanal which is a hill station down in the southern part of India where we live. The easiest way to get there is probably to take a train to Kodai road and then either take a bus up the hill or just drive up there. Its a beautiful place and I’ve been going up there on weekends for as long as I can remember. A large portion of my happiest childhood memories are from when we visited and believe me we did that a lot! Those were the days,back when, I didn’t have to think of the weekends as ‘extra study time’. We would go there with my cousins and us kids would run around in the gardens (gorgeous!), play with frisbees and beach balls (which bought every time we went there and then promptly lost), wear straw hats and get ourselves on sugar highs with all the cotton candy! There’s also a lake where you can either rent a boat and go around yourself or get a boatman guy who will row for you,which is OK , but the highlight of my brother’s trip would be the horse ride he would take around the lake. I, of course being the wimpy kid I was, did it all of once and was worried that the horse would bump me off the entire time. A similar thing happened when I had the bright idea that taking a camel ride would be fun (In Dubai). All I did was attract weird looks with all the screaming I did and then proceeded to smell like Camel for the rest of the evening.
So, in conclusion, its a nice place to visit with little kids and lots of fun but its still in India mind you so don’t be surprised if you see the odd cow walking about on the road! Hopefully, no one thinks that Chennai is the same, because we don’t really have cows on the road here, but a goat did get into our school once. Our PE teacher had to chase it around the ground. It was hilarious!
Here are some pictures I took from when we were there, it gets really gorgeous in the evenings, when its freezing cold.
Also, here’s a shout out to my brother’s blog over at I’m Talking , Hi Chinu! Go Check it out. He’s just as insane as we are.
So, L8r people and May The Force Be With you!

I am eternally thankful to the “Rain Gods” for “showering their blessings” on us yesterday. That’s what made us(and not Lucid) get a holiday today. The first call I got as soon as I reached home yesterday from school was some parent representative saying no school!! *Hooray!!!* And so, I did not have to study physics like “OMG I have a test tomorrow.”
And, Diwali’s coming up! Food! Yay! Holidays! Double Yay!!! I usually wait for the evening when the sky is lit with fireworks and try to capture nice pics of fireworks bursting and stuff. Newayz, I convinced my mom to make donuts for Diwali and so we decided to try making them. It tasted pretty fine only it looked a LOT like a vada. It was an experiment gone wrong! So my mom’s back to square one, wondering WTH to make. She just might end up making Gulab Jamuns. ( I like them, so I ain’t complaining)
So now, to beat boredom, I have taken up random photography. Here are some of the pictures I took:
