Macho Men, eh?
We are used to such things, but the Americans were not amused. They are not used to seeing so many people together. After what happened on November 7, the USAF pilots and personnel became edgy.
Not used to see so many people together, especially as not targets. It is a good thing they are not practising with live ammunition, or is it just a dress rehearsal? "First we take Baghdad, then we take Delhi?"

What shall I do?

My former flatmate is here on an official visit and instead of staying at the company's guesthouse, he has been staying with me. I won't say it is because he can save a lot of money that way, but I won't rule it out. It looks like he can never forget this girl who was working here with us. He used to be in her department and he tells me he was quite close with her. Long story short, he is obsessed with her, she doesn't want to do anything with him, she is planning to marry her boyfriend, which our hero can't digest. He has been complaining to me for the last few days how he can change her mind and convince her to marry him if only she would reply to his deluge of emails. He tells me how every girl he has worked with have thrown themselves at him and she was the only girl he has ever pined about - 'why can't she realise that?' He takes this as a personal failure but can't see it that way. This seems to be my role since seventh standard - listening to "friends" cribbing about women who don't want to do anything with them, and they weren't exactly on my good side to begin with. The only good thing that came out of it seems to be being privy to their dirty secrets, their weaknesses, being dined at their expense, and ofcourse, the fun of seeing them embarassed at the least. But with this guy, I am afraid he might harm the poor girl like we see in many news reports, especially considering that he is from North India; that too, from Delhi.

Saturday Night

There are places man was never meant to go, and the movie The Cave is was of them. That was one of the most boring, predictable movies I ever saw. The minute the parasite was introduced, I knew the path of the movie. Except for the stunning underwater scenes, everything else was skippable. The music in the movie starts and whines like a jet engine, but the flight never takes off the ground. The dialogues were a brilliant piece of art, for a school drama. I fear there might be a sequel to this movie. After that, I saw a browsing centre open at 12.30am and I entered out of curiosity. I saw a lot of dirty bastards sitting there and looking up pictures of hot girls on hi5, orkut, and matrimonial websites.
