The newspaper and the coffee mug... i never read the newspaper mostly... most of what is on the headlines is old news... the inner pages is filled with murders and controversies, the bare bones of which I again have read the previous night. The sunday papers with their features are good fun though. And then there is my dose of gossip - BT
The ear rings that lose are my favorite ones. And this one I lost it in MY office. I didn't realise how much of space there was in that tiny space to get lost nor how much of the floor was actually covered with black carpet. And nope I haven't found it yet :-(
Bangalore is turning into Venice. Roads are flooded and there is constant rain like in... no other city in the world. And I love it, despite the traffic packed bumper to bumper and the mess...
Have i posted this before? Maybe... I usually wear this beautiful piece of work to work and then have to take it off midway because it gets heavy and annoying. I don't see the point of dressing up at work at all because all my jewelry feels annoying in about ten mins.
For all of you who do not know the story...
so after my horribly incomplete trip, and thinking that I even lost my ipod on the trip, I finally found it. Unfortunately it was in the sweatshirt which had gone through two heavy cycles in the washing machine.
And with much trepidation I switched it on... it didn't work. well, naturally.... as a friend mentioned, the last gadget that worked in water was the nokia 3310. big fat phone. take it out, blow dry it and voila!
But then i decided to risk an exploding ipod and plugged it in to charge. and guess what? it works :-D :-D :-D
So here's one for Apple and Steve Jobs. Great job guys!
No, not mine. I'd originally meant for a friend's painting to be the picture of the day... I fell in love with his version of the queen. An oil and it looked so real like almost a photograph. He had cut off half their heads and though it was in oils, it looked like it was in pastels.... and the chain of pearls one of them had was fab... but then I saw this, painted by another artist at the same exhibition and it.... appealed to me for some reason... maybe if it were a photograph, i'd duplicate one image and then have the image of the sheep and the tiger... but i like the little differences in the two people... they look extremely similar but there are slight differences... the feet, the cheeks... little things. I like it.
PS: the other photo is on flickr. so you gotta click on this one and it'll take you to it.
And as I fell miserably sick after this, I've not been able to even get out of bed, let alone take pix... so posting more pix from the trip. cheating i know bt right now, i dont care
Do not swear because i'm not putting up traditional pictures of Hampi... go to flickr or facebook account for that. This though was at the train station.. the train was four hours late... which was fun in a manner of speaking...
plenty of pictures i took in hampi but this little girl climbing to the centre of what used to be the wedding area in the old days just caught me. plus she is in red... and so happily climbing away.
i agree there gotta be guards at the train station in these days of terror but no where else did i see these.. what are they called... barracks? shelters? for the guards. welcome to city life.
