really random

The review (rediff) for the new bond movie says it is good. So is it James Bond or James Blond? Or James Bland?

Talking about bland, costco has a new cal style veggie burger out (Dr.Praegger's I think) that is pretty good, unlike the usual suspects. I just add a healthy dose of chaat masala and a healthier dose of red hot chutney or sambal olek to appeal to my taste buds.

SJS and Meera J? Who would have thunk?

George Clooney is back at no.1 acc. to people mag. No surprise there. Just give him a permanent post I say!

Emmitt won. Not really surprised, he seems such a likeable guy! Mario is a great dancer and so was Joey L. Will that erase that saved by the bell scar off his forehead?
I have started hearing carols everywhere. Seems a bit early to me. Is it that time already?

Ants are having a freaking fun season chez moi! Baited breath gets a whole new meaning!

Now when people start talking about sahana and durbar, I actually (sort of) know what they are talking about (an inkling, really). I think.

One more day, by 5 people .. in heaven's author, is one more good read.

For once, I haven't started shopping for the big trip. Yet. Do they still sell those handcuffs or whatchamaycallits for kids? I see it as the only solution.

Next post will be at random.

poll - voting

Under a sage friend's advice, walked up to the poll booth at 6:48AM, and finished my civic duty by 7:05 AM. Was 6th in line and one of the first to come out, since all I did was a straight party vote. That would have been called a breeze, except it was a yucky mucky morning. It still is. Coming out from that place, there was 1 thought uppermost - Hope is what makes the world go around!

Then on to the dental drill for a tiny filling. Why does a "simple filling" take so much effort and pain!

verbosa ponderosa

Political leanings aside, what makes one buy a humv? I was behind one this morn, and gosh, is it ugly! I am sure someone behind me was thinking similar thoughts about my LS400.

Why can't fall colors last the whole of fall? All that magnificence is ephemeral, barely 2 weeks of brilliance and it has already started to die out.
Isn't there something about the bright colors combined with cumulonimbus (courtesy, my daughter) clouds above?

Did I really hear that loud pop early this morning? I was rudely (but luckily) woken up at around 5 by a loud bang. Was it a real noise, a dream or my internal alarm?

You would think that the daylight saving hour would help us get up earlier. But seems to have worked the other way in my household! I think I have finally lost that jetlag! Will have to soon get ready for the real one though!

Last, but the most important, do we have to grow up?
