X-Men: The Last Stand


Heh heh heh. Now to see Wolverine kick the shit out of those guys (Current Mood: excited)

Ooooh. So that's what she looks like without the blue paste (Current Mood: impressed)

What the hell! He dies? (Current Mood: confused)

Ha ha ha! The Golden Gate bridge! Ha ha ha! (Current Mood: enthralled)

Jean Grey. Oh my god, Jean Grey! (Current Mood: awed)


Was good fun, really. Story wise, the first two were better of course. And hey, please sit through the entire movie, right through the credits. The FULL credits.

In the water now

Feet wet, finally. Posted by Picasa

Updates from the past few days

Yesterday was Wednesday. Nothing special. Opened a restroom door to find big lady inside, sitting on the throne. Lady yelled, I whoopsed and went into the other restroom. Was peeing when the door opened. Skinny lady this time. Lady went whoops, I went eeks. Have been carefully avoiding all unisex loos since.

Isn't-saying-much statement of the century, after watching The Da Vinci Code on Tuesday: The book was better.

Wednesday again. This lady does a presentation on the Change Management System used by the customer I'm visiting. Towards the end, she has a slide on the benefits of using the system, along with a picture of a cash register. I smile and say,"Oh, good one. Change management system, huh?". Lady blinks twice, doesn't get it. Smart boss lady to my right starts laughing. Joke explained to presenter lady, she says she is going to use that line in all her future presentations. I ask for royalties.

I am not a nice person. Fact. And that is unrelated to the above anecdotes.

Daytona Beach, Florida

At Daytona Beach, close to Palm Coast, Florida. Felt a bit awkward walking around there in office wear. Posted by Picasa

Reed River Park

Nice, quiet place. In constrant to a lot of the city parks you see in the US, this one looks very natural. They have actually built the park around the stream and the rocks, not the reverse. The photo above is the view from the top of the bridge, the one below is a view of the bridge.

The person in the shadows there is Raji.

The man who shot the man who shot JFK

Since I've nothing better to do on a Sunday morning, I'm trying to learn a new programming language.


Yeah, talk about plumbing the depths.

And in Room 317...

Inside the room, monkeying around with the camera. This was today morning, just before I left for breakfast. Posted by Picasa

Postcards From Greenville, SC

They close up part of Main Street on Friday evenings and put up stalls selling beer and hot dogs. A jazz band plays nearby, in front of the Hyatt hotel. I didn't quite see what the fuss was all about, really. Moreover, the beer was Budweiser Light, one of the most pathetic beers in the world. I just moved on after taking a few snaps.

Thought this was a mosque, at first glance. Interesting design. There are lots of churches here, just 100 metres apart. They don't call this the Bible Belt for nothing. 

Another church, thought the design was different enough to post about.

I had a couple of tacos here for dinner, washed down with a Mexican beer called Modelo. Not too bad, really.
