Rocking The East Coast – I

“It’s not pink! It’s lavender”

That has to be the gayest thing I’ve ever said in my life. Don’t even know where and when I learned to pick the difference. Maybe it was just the lack of sleep making me delusional. Yup! that’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it.

700 miles in four days with no more than three hours of sleep each night – we sure made the best use of the little time we had. With ten people under the same tight schedule, I probably spent more time waiting to use the restroom then sleeping! And if you ask some people, probably as much time inside the restroom.

This trip did not turn out to be anything like I anticipated – but then again, nothing in life does. The trip began with me spending more time on the airport then on the plane. Mind you it was a three and a half hours flight with no transits. Though long, the wait wasn’t dull. I ended up guaranteeing a landing in next fifteen minutes for a plane not even in arrival list, and picking up someone from a plane that never arrived – all in a day’s work for this superman.

Welcome to My Very Own Web Space!!

Finally, I’m relocating my wordpress.com hosted to my very own web space hosted by DreamHost.com.

Here’s hoping for more frequent ging now that I actually have to pay for this :)

I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty six times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

Lies! Lies!! Lies!!!

No lie: People Average 4 Fibs A Day

A new survey shows the average person tells four lies a day, or 1,460 a year for a total of 88,000 by the age of 60, and the most common is: “I’m fine.”

Others on the list include:

  • “Nice to see you”
  • “Sorry I missed your call”
  • “I’m stuck in traffic”
  • “Our server was down”
  • “The train was delayed”
  • “The check’s in the mail”
  • “I’ll phone you back in a minute”
  • “This tastes delicious”
  • “Of course I love you”

Facebook Suggestions

For a while now Facebook has been pretty interested in how I run my social life (of course the online one… I’m a grad student, I don’t have time for the real one). Earlier today Facebook thought it would be a good idea for me rekindle my relations with an old crush (where there was no relation to begin with) by sharing my latest news by writing in her Wall – and suddenly it took me back to this comic from xkcd.

It seems it isn’t enough for Facebook (and the plethora of ludicrous apps) to just tell me how smart(/stupid)/attractive(/gullible) or what kind of dog/chocolate/shoes I am, now it also wants to decide who I be friends with and keep in touch. I guess the more active I am on Facebook the more likely I am of noticing the advertisements showing at the side – “it’s just business nothing personal..”.

So I was thinking, if Facebook knew that I block all the ads on it using adblock*, would it leave my social life alone!?!!

P.S.: On a completely unrelated note, the last three words above pretty much describes my life :P

* [ It doesn't block Facebook ad by default, but if you want to know how then I know the setting.]
