Since I last posted here about three days ago, I’ve got some of my work done. The tests are over and I’ve written one experiment in my Physics file. Though my Mathematics assignment remains untouched (:P) and my blog posts are still stagnating in the drafts folder (:|).
The good news is, that I’ve started reading The Lost Symbol. The bad news is, I’m not liking it at all, because Dan Brown has become much of a drag. Same old formulaic plots. He has stopped thinking altogether, it seems to me.
I’ll write a review of the book on my main blog as soon as I get any chance. And remind me to tell you another incident about the lovelorn couple. :P
Another Brick in the Wall by Pink Floyd. Dedicated to Khanjar.
Honestly. This schedule, and this procrastination thing is freaking me out!! Help me!
I could not give out a text update yesterday, because I was so full in things I had to do… I have a Physics test coming up tomorrow, a Computer Organisation test coming up on Sunday, and I have a Mathematics assignment to complete. And there’s a Physics file that has to me made, and something else that I’m forgetting at the moment.
I did not go to college today, and ended up reading Breaking Dawn all through. Its a very good book though, way better than its predecessor in the Twilight Series.
The fact remains that I didn’t get my work done as expected. :(
I did study Physics, I did start making the file, but made no progress in Computer Organisation. My Bad!
Also, I have a *huge* workload of writing the posts on the friendship series for my blog. Its a sequence of eight posts, and I’ve started work on the first three. The first one is nearly complete, the second one needs a lot of raw writing, and the third one needs some serious rethinking. How am I going to do all that work??
And the way I procrastinate, I wish I could be Comfortably Numb. But life isn’t that easy.
Comfortably Numb by Pink Floyd. Awesomeness.
For those of you who can’t wait another moment for Dan Brown’s next blockbuster, here is your fix: an interactive Dan Brown plot generator that takes a city and a shadowy organization and spits out the plot of the next volume in the Robert Langdon chronicles. You can either select a specific city and/or group from the dropdown menus at the top of the tool or leave it on “random” and let the computer decide. Make sure to hit “refresh”—even the same city and group have multiple story lines.
Heya people… How ya doing?
Its very true to say that every day brings out a new embarrassing situation for me. Today, it happened in the Physics lab.
It so happened that we were doing an experiment in which we had to clip the voltage from an AC source using a PN junction diode. We (read: me and Mohnish) had to take readings with respect to different biasing voltages.
We’d done this before, so off we went and made the circuit. However, when it was time to actually fire up the current, nothing happened to the waveform when we tried to change the voltage and upped it by several notches.
Bewildered, we re-made the circuit, and tried again. Still, nothing happened. We wasted about half-an-hour doing it, and called up the teacher when we could stand it no more.
The teacher came, listened, saw, smiled, switched on the power supply, and went away.
Too much for that damned switch, eh? :P
A man goes to the famous Lucas Carton restaurant in Paris with his girlfriend and orders the 1928 Mouton wine. The waiter returns with a bottle full of wine, pours a small amount in the glass for tasting. The customer picks up the glass, smells the wine, and puts it down on the table with a thud.
“This is not the 1928 Mouton.”
The waiter assures him it is, and soon there are another twenty people surrounding the table, including the chef and the manager trying to convince the man that the wine is the 1928 Mouton.
Finally someone asks him how he knows that it is not the 1928 Mouton.
“My name is Phillipe de Rothschild, and I make the wine.”
Finally, the original waiter steps forward and admits that he poured the Clerc Milon 1928.
“I could not bear to part with our last bottle of 1928 Mouton. You know Clerc Milon, it is in the same village as Mouton, you pick the grapes at the same time, the same cepage, you crush in the same way, you put them into similar barrels. You bottle at the same time, you even use eggs from the same chickens to fine them. The wines are the same, except for a small matter of geographic location.”
Rothschild beckons the waiter forward, and whispers to him, “When you return home tonight, ask your girlfriend to remove her underwear. Put one finger in one opening, another finger in the other, then smell both the fingers. You will understand what difference a small distance in geographic location makes.”
Heya… I’m back :)
First things first. I went to College today!! (Well, I had to mention this because these days I hardly visit that damned place… just three days a week :P)
What’s more, the lovelorn couple did a lot o drama today. The guy was angry, the gal was angry too… They were having this fight outside of the class and were really pissed off. They guy had switched off both his phones, and the gal simply refused to pick up hers. Their bags were lying in the classroom, and for sometime, the guy’s cellphone too!
The rest of us were busy speculating what was happening between them. And it was damn fun!!! :)
The rest of the day was pretty humdrum, considering all those boring and sleep-inducing lectures! Haven’t done much since coming back, other than listening to Pink Floyd and editing an old blog post of mine. I guess those people will be happy now.. I really wish them to be like that. :)
The day’s been quite long and I’ve been having a headache. I know its Sunday but what the fuck? I still have to go to Sanmacs and listen to a thumca-dumca who doesn’t know how to teach. Part of the reason why I have this stupid headache is due to his twohourlongconstantblabbering.
Before going to Sanmacs today however, I watched Harold and Kumar Go to the White Castle. It was on Zee Studio, so no scenes and no shit. I think I’ll have to download the unrated version off the internet, to be able to *enjoy* it properly, if you know what I mean ;)
I’ve seen the other one, Escape from Guantanamo Bay in its unrated avtar and my God! Look at the shit that is shown in it!! The Bottomless Party!!! Fuck Man!
In another case, it seems that someone’s having trouble with what I’ve written about him on Talking Talking a long while ago. I’ll have to talk it over tomorrow before it turns ugly. Wish me luck!
