Whats up

Phew, we entered code freeze at last ! The release is not over yet, but I finally feel like most of it is behind us. Plan to go out for dinner with the team on Friday, havent yet decided the venue.

Went around with Sindha to a few more hospitals and diagnostic centres, her CV in hand. Hopeful about a couple of options, but nothing appears likely to materialize in the next two weeks at least.

Plan to take a vacation - to Leh ! I'm starting to feel quite excited about it. I cant find anyone who has visited the place. Dont really know for sure if it will be good, too ! But what the heck, its never that interesting if you know in advance what exactly is in store for you ! This trip should happen between Aug 8 and Aug 14, if all goes well.

I finally took a survey on l-j. I'm not sure if it covers all my favourite books and authors, but it was nice to put cursor to screen and write it out.

I will not write anything about the Palio till I get my hands around the steering wheel. Should happen by this Friday

Current Book - Once by James Herbert

Halp !

I think I like the new Eminem song - Without Me ! Should I buy the cd ? Should I buy his first album ? Am I going crazy ?

Married again

Sindha is back home. She is right now busy getting the house straightened out, trying to undo three years of bachelorhood. Out go the wine and beer bottles, in come the atta powder, the jeera packets, salt, pepper and garam masala. The kitchen cleanup took all of yesterday and if reports from the eastern front are to be believed, the living room and a bedroom ate up her entire day today.

She plans to start applying once she gets the house back in working condition. Or rather, living condition. Ha ha.

On the rant front, our Palio has not appeared yet. The story put out by the dealer is that Fiat India has recalled all red Palios due to a manufacturing defect. He can oblige us with a silver one. I asked him to give this in writing which was when the call turned ugly. Ultimately, we need to wait till end of the month. *sigh*.

And hey, hats off to the Indian cricket team. Outstanding stuff.
