New feature request for mobile phones, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, are you listening?

You know what is the one important feature that all mobile phones lack? A mirror. Yes, how I wish I could check myself out looking at the screen, check if my hair is not all over the place or that my eyemakeup is not smudged, while pretending to be playing a game. Why didn't anyone think of this before? Because frankly, carrying mirrors or compacts is so 1980s. And even a person like me needs to make sure everythings alright. Taking a picture of yourself and then seeing the picture is too much of a hassle. And not everyone can afford a Nokia N92 which has a stainless steel body. No No. We need it as a feature in our phones. Press 4 for mirror. Oh, and you know what else they could do? Everytime you press 4, play a recorded message that would say 'You are the fairest of them all'. Hehehe. Nokia and Sony Ericsson please make note. Wibree can wait. We need mirrors.

To switch or not to switch

No replies on the post about Blogger beta. Do I switch? Do I not? Because, I am looking forward to the 'lables' or 'tags' feature and I always wondered why Blogger never had it. But then again most of my posts fall under 4 categories.
1. Autos, I am obsessed with the 3 wheeler.
2. Crap.
3. Personal.
4. Personal crap.

Hmmmm. May be I don't need that feature.

Shiny Disco Balls!

These aren't pictures taken in a disc but instead in the auto I came in today. Disco lights in a rickshaw. Plus he played music loud enough to damage my eardrums. Such fun, these rides are.

I have to stay up till 12 to wish my friend a happy birthday. Staying up is not the problem I am half way through reading Eragon. Quarter way, now that I notice the book mark is no where in the middle of the book but rather in the middle of the first half. The book will keep me company is what I mean to say. The problem is that, this friend in question recently moved to bangalore and I failed to make a proper note of her number. I have my friend's number and her dad's number stored and I don't know which one's her number.Don't ask me why, such things happen when you out of laziness don't follow proper naming conventions while storing numbers. Now, do I take a chance and call up either one of the numbers and hope its her, running the risk of waking up her dad? Or, do I not call her now, get back to the book and try the numbers tomorrow? Which means I still wish her on her birthday but break the tradition of being the first one to call her every single year. Such tough decisions. So less time. What do I do?

Note to myself : Stop asking questions on this blog, rhetorical or otherwise.


Himesh Reshmiah is performing in town and they expect people to pay to see him perform or in other words pay to see his bearded chin and neck while he howls away to glory. And I know someone who wants to go. Haaaaaahahahahhh!

Blogger beta

Has anyone switched to Blogger Beta? (Beta tag on most google products stay forever, hope its not the case here) The new features look cool, comments rss, labels for posts, new templates but looks like there are quite a few bugs. The problem is one cant 'undo' the switch. Let me know if anyone switched and is happy with it.

Some pics of Karwar taken from my cell phone. They don't do justice to the place.....someday I plan to capture it better, the beach, the people, the beauty. Someday I plan to understand the place and more so its people better.

Do we need to redraw the map?

Its not like we didn't have enough problems, we are fighting over the border now. If you ask me leave those cities alone. It is obvious that if cities border two states it will have influences from both the states. You cant draw clear cut borders. One city in question other than Belgaum is Karwar. The place where my parents grew up. And they are mighty happy with Karwar being in Karnataka. So if tomorrow it belongs to Maharashtra, will I be a Maharashtrian? Umm I don't think so. Anyways there are other people protesting which if nothing has given us a holiday today. With nothing to watch on TV (They blocked all channels except Kannada channels) and no where to go I use this time to give myself a much needed pedicure and catch up on some reading. Will post some pics of Karwar from my visit last week soon.

Put your hands up, put your hands up like you just don't care, Nach Baliye!

Its never happened before, people at office discussing TV shows I hadn't heard of. Yeah I have been watching so less TV I don't know my way with the remote and the channel tuning on our TV. But with lots of time to spare in the last few days I am fully equipped and have made up for the loss. Look who is going to be bragging tomorrow in office during coffee break with my newly gained information. About Tulsi and Aamir telling you Coca-Cola is safe. About the cute new surf excel ad. And about Nach Baliye!! Yes Nach Baliye is back with lots of drama minus Farhan Aktar (how could they not have him??) . I am so rooting for Narayani and Gaurav! They are like the Varun-Rajeshwari/Parmeet-Archana of NB-1. Absolutely natural and oh so adorable. Vote for them! And yes Please buy surf excel. You could apparently put kids to school by doing so. Isn't it the cutest ad you have ever seen? And coke, well that's up to you to decide if its pesticide free or not. Meanwhile, put your hands up, put your hands up, like you just don't care, Nach baliye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Am bored out of my wits. Plans falling apart. People canceling. Want to blog and don't want to at the same time. I need something to boost my ego. If you are one of those regular readers who has never commented here this is the time to come out and tell me how much you like my blog. Lie about it if you have to. Oh hell, what am I saying? The visitor counter never seems to change, so you my dear secret blog admirer, don't exist. So who am I talking to then? Oh and I finally registered at bloglines. Now I manage whatever I read online through bloglines. Also turns out, only one person in this entire universe has subscribed to my blog. Bless you my dear friend. I have subscribed to 40 feeds, have very few international blogs on my list. Any recommendations? This question is put to the few people who do read my blog and to that one subscriber not to the non existent imaginary secret admirer.
