Gold access

For the first time, I'm thankful to the credit card marketeers who sold me a Gold Mastercard a couple of years back. It got me admission into a neat little lounge at the Chennai Airport, where I could get a glass of beer, some excellent Chicken Kabab and much needed peace and quiet.

This entry has cleverly been filtered to prevent the you-know-whos of the world from advising me about airports and lounges and credit cards.

Man, I can be mean.

Cross one

Ok, so that's one off my long term to-do list. Watched The Never Ending Story with my daughter.

Over the weekend

* We really should have taken Mohd. Kaif. At least his family has experience in dealing with goons pelting stones at one's house.

* Sachin Tendulkar to appear in a comic book. About time.

* Phir Hera Pheri wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. They did manage to Indianise Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels quite well.

* Don't go for long drives in a non a/c car. Or at least, not during afternoons in summer

Thought of the day

You can keep your Atticus Finches and your Sidney Cartons. To me, Rabbit Angstrom is the most well written character I've ever read.

Hello, Delhi

Karol Bagh sucks. Found succour at Hotel Diplomat, in Chanakyapuri. Not a bad place, but the room rent is what you might pay at the Leela in Bangalore.
