Classes, Snakes, Carry on!

Three things in the last 2 days:

1) Classes started again after a 5 day weekend. As the NRI visiting prof says, a boot camp for three days ending tomorrow

2) Encounter with a snake, sort of. While returning to the mess, the hillbillies were suddenly bunched up in the middle of the steps connecting the hill top to the hostels. Aargh, a snake! They were quietly following the snake slithering downstairs. At one side was the snake and me at the other side! I calmly walked past when there was a cry behind me, the snake tried to grab my pants, as someone told later, mostly probably exaggerated.

3) Carry on England was screened ^_^. I first saw this movie in the fourth or fifth standard on DD one saturday night. The second Carry on movie I saw after the tamest carry on movie - Carry on Doctor ^_^.



This time it felt different. Oh yeah, the handful of hillbillies were snickering at the slapstick parts, and some parts were wasted on the crowd. (Anyone for Ready, Willing and Able? or ) For the two brief topless scenes, some were shocked, like they have never seen one before! Come to think about it, it did not sound as funny as the other movies, but was just OK. I hope to get the while collection some day.

Some other events like forming a group for this class too and proposing some project (I had nothing to do with the proposal) and getting the work slashed in half because it was way too big to be done for this course. The prof today got pissed off at the absenteeism in the class today, with over 70 students registering for this course and less than 2/5ths turning up, no wonder. She then took attendance herself, looking at the photos pasted on the seating chart and verifying the face with the voice.
