Post to myself

You idiot, don't you ever learn? There are no God sent angels out there, you are all alone. Hear me? Alone. Learn to fend for yourself. Don't waste your time and energy hoping people will rescue you. They wont. They have their own bloody lives to live don't they?

The auto driver license display system is useful. For the uninitiated, all autos in Bangalore are now supposed to have a blown up image of their license displayed, easy enough for the passengers to see. Good initiative, you know the driver has a license, you know its him not an imposter, any problem you face all you have to do is note down the license number and report. But more than that, this system has provided me the answer to the question that has baffled us all for ages. Why don't auto drivers agree to take you where you want to go? Especially in the late hours? For the answer, see the address column in the license. Every time an auto driver has agreed to take me home its only because he stays in or around that area. So if you are tired of being snubbed at by auto drivers and cant take the humiliation anymore, here's your chance to get back at them and give them a taste of their own medicine. Instead of asking "Xnagar bartira?" ("Will you come to Xnagar?") , ask them "Nimma mane yelli?" (Where is your house?").If its not where you want to go, look away and walk off with an air of dignity like its the most natural thing in the world to do. Hehe. I am going to do that tomorrow.

Just another rant

Aamir Khan is allowed to make mistakes. I forgive him for fanaa but what I hate now is that everytime I say 'I love fanaa' people are going to think I am referring to the movie. Saying 'I love fanna, the song, from yuva' is such a pain. Don't know if I can forgive him for that.

So world cup is here. I am missing my bro for the first time since he left for US. He was the one who got us excited about sporting events, he would talk endlessly before we (me and sis) would have to relent and hand him the remote. He even made us watch formula one. And at one point of time I liked racing, I liked Alonso even with my bro(and the whole world) telling me Schumi was the best. I cant sit through whole of 60 laps now.(or is it 70 laps?) Same with French open, haven't wacthed a single match. Funny, how I easily say 'I miss him', here on my blog. I cant dare saying that in open. We aren't very expressive, our family. Nobody has ever said 'I love you'. I would die in a fit of laughter if somebody said that. Surprisingly 'I hate you' is used all the time. I'd like my kids to be more eloquent and expressive, if I can be that myself. I'd like them to make 'mothers day' cards for me, may be cook breakfast for me once in a while. What kids, you ask? I am going to adopt, if I cant have kids of my own. And I am going to adopt a puppy. I hope I can be a good mommy. I'd watch them play, soccer maybe. That reminds me, now that world cup is here, who is your favorite team? I don't have a favorite, I just know I don't want Brazil to win.
