few dispersed thoughts...

on a few dispersed topics... :)
  • well last saturday, tried the new 'Maggi Dal Atta' and to say that it was bad would be an understatement. Usually I make it a point not to try the new stuff maggi comes out with, coz 'm pretty sure they will be bad. So i still haven't tried out the 'Maggi Atta' noodles or even the chinese stuff which came 'n went... :) Anyways had to try this 'coz my Dad on his recent trip to Supermarket, thought that this will be a better buy than the usual one 'coz of all that 'vitamins 'n good for health' slogans on the wrapper. 'n boy was i irked, when it tasted so awful 'n i had no option but to somehow stomach through the whole bowl( have a policy of not wasting any food) 'n so picked up an argument with Dad as to who asked him to get this instead of the usual, 'n he gave it back to me saying "didn't I always nag him to buy healthy food" 'n that healthy 'n tasty food don't go together. I was like "ofcourse that ain't true, you have many healthy food which are equally tasty" but unfortunately at that time i couldn't think of any, 'n all i remembered was the 'bitter gourd' vegetable which is supposed to be so gr8 for health 'n one which i can't eat for nuts! Anyways probably later I may update a list of foods which are 'Healthy + Tasty', meanwhile you can send in your entries... :D But remember if you love the traditional Maggi as much as i do, then you better stay away from the 'Maggi Dal Atta'

  • this monday took leave on account of 'Makara Sankranthi'/'Pongal'. To me festivals are a gr8 time to hog on sweets,good food 'n to sleep. In between of that, i managed to catch live telecast of Marat Safin's 1st round match of Aus Open. Well it was indeed a long time 'n i started reminiscing the college days, when you had all the time to catch up with all the sports actions. As in Joseph Heller's book 'Something Happened' , all i can say is something happened after i joined work 'n me kinda almost completely stopped watching sports. Anyways this match was engrossing and as i always say 'No match of Safin's can be boring'. They are always entertaining what with all his racquet smashing 'n arguing with umpire... :) 'n this one too had its share. One nice moment was when Becker served 'n Safin moved out of the ball's way... think that was the 1st time in Tennis history (Body-line? :D) Anyways there were moments when i almost switched off the set(somehow can never watch a player/team i like losing) but made myself watch through the entire match 'n i wasn't to be disappointed. :) He was rusty, which was to be expected with his long long injury off. Now i just hope he gets back into form 'n makes past Andy-Roddick, what a stupid draw they have got this year! Safin Vs Roddick a 3rd round match!

  • Well now i know why everyone keeps quoting 'shawshank redemption' 'n 'requiem for a dream' in their favorite movies list. :) won't add more abt 'em, coz 'm sure its been done to death by many eminent others. :D 'n just a tidbit - 'shwashank redemption' was based on a novella by Stephen King! can you believe it Stephen King! yep da very same King who writes all those horror books!

  • 'n Jack Nicholson looked real good, when he was young 'n his acting was as superlative as it is now. Plus charming as hell, as he is, even now! :) If you are wondering, well its 'coz i saw 'Chinatown' last week. It's a real nice movie, with just amazing dialogues. Check this - "Politicians, ugly buildings and whores all get respectable if they last long enough." Anyways, now 'm waiting to get my hands on 'One flew over the cuckoo's nest'. btw 'm still in a dilemma as to read the book first or watch the movie, guess it will depend on wht 'll fall into my hands first. :)

  • 'n 'm rounding it off with Zappa's quote -
"Information is not knowledge,
Knowledge is not wisdom,
Wisdom is not truth,
Truth is not beauty,
Beauty is not love,
Love is not music
and Music is THE BEST "
