On a very long long journey

I am going to the place of the famous Prayag where the 3 big rivers meet. Now I guess most of you would understand what had kept me so busy.

I am not sure when I will be back(1 week or more?) and in what condition, but definitely will miss y'all!

No blogs, tweets, group msgs on Insanity_unltd, scraps etc for a while!

Thanks to all of you for all your help, I promise to give my trip the best of my effort.

I am going alone. The tickets are reserved and the bags are packed. I request you to send me as many jokes as possible as long as it's free :P

Last but not the least - Don't send me "Touching Thoughts" cause I promise to be touched by your jokes. :P
JK, any message is good enough, it will save me from going sane (Hopefully).

My apologies to my team mates for not co-operating with the project. I don't whether this is right or not and it's the last thing I wanna think about.
Good bye! (I wish we had won the T20 today!)

A blogger's curse

The Iceman's theory of blogs (or just a simple curse) -

1) When I have enough stuff to unload here, it usually means I am busy.

Axiom: So busy, that I can't blog.

2)When I have enough time to blog, in other words - life has become boring, I have absolutely no memory of what I wanted to say.

Axiom: So boring, that I can't blog.

And yet, just like a bumble bee defies all laws of aerodynamics and flies in the air, I am still here, etching my memories, for all eternity!

Happy Valentines day

Happy Valentines day one and all!

No need to check the URL, you are still on Insanity Unlimited!!!
I found the pic and it inspired this post. Anyway, Valentine's day is a day created by greeting card companies to make people like me look like losers. Though I never felt like one, I would like to take you through how I spent some of my Valentines days.

2002 - I was in 9th standard (not grade you dope, standard)
I spent most of the day wondering what would be my perfect girl. I remember explaining this same description to my neighbour, much later. It was a really crazy description I guess.

2003 - I was in 10th standard. I had a lot of activity this studying. (You see, I was still a real student then)

2004 - First PU. I don't remember. But I was definitely not with a girl. I think the thought of having a girlfriend had struck me briefly. Thnx to my cousin Poo and her continuous pestering "You gotta get a girl...get a girl get a girl ". I had dropped the idea quickly.

2005 - Again, I was trying to study. Trying to unlearn a lot of nonsense I had learnt the last 2 years.

2006 - I finally had a date. With My granpa. He asked me to come over and do some channel tuning on his TV. It was a memorable Valentine's day, especially after he called me a "Cheap Engineer " after 3 hours of tuning and setting that made my eyes sink to the back of my head.

2007 - Was helping two of my best friends hook up with each other ( Applause please - One of my best achievements so far). They lived happily ever after. [Worth a mention, because the other couples split]


2008 - Wondering how it already had been a year since I went ga-ga over Priya. Wondering how she not being my perfect girl, managed to floor me. Wondering when it all started...

2009 - I am probably busy with something as I have been lately. But, Im still ga-ga and I am still wondering.

Despite all this commotion, the most unromantic realisation would be - I don't think I wanna get married.

Then what will I do? I will buy a snake along with a lot of cats. Turn into the crazy, tall, skinny, creepy guy with really long nails. Cricket balls that are hit into my house are never recovered because the kids are just too scared to enter my house and ask me for their balls. Hahahaaaaaa!!!

Man, I just love to spread the cheer. Happy valentines day again!

Just remember, if you love someone and the someone loves you, every single day is a celebration. You don't have to wait for Feb 14th.

Bell bajao (Ring the doorbell) - Stop Domestic violence

There is this new campaign on TV , which airs public interest messages to urge people to do their bit in stopping domestic violence , by simply ringing the doorbell on any excuse just to make sure the offender gets the message.

The particular ad that caught my attention was of Boman Irani walking up to the door and ring the bell to say
" kya main ek phone kar sakta hoon? (Can I make a phone call?) "
and immediately his cell phone rings in his pocket and he answers to say
"Haan? maine hi phone kiya tha (yeah I had called) "

I was damn impressed by that one.

Most of the people don't make an effort to stop domestic violence when its happening somewhere near them. I know people of both the following examples-
50% of the women out their go on and on and on....about how men are bad, men are that , men are this...blah blah blah. Finally, when there is a wife-beater around, she wants her own man to sit at home and mind his own business than to go over and and put an end to it.
Men either don't want to cross their wives/mums, or they simply don't want to do anything about it themselves.
"It's their personal issues - we can't do anything "

Yes you can...ring the bell.

So simple. You don't have to say anything...just Ring.The.Bell.
Or knock the door. You don't need to get involved in their personal issues.

You just need an excuse and I thought of some (first two are from the ads) to add the insane touch to this post.

The top 10 Ring-The-Bell excuses are...

1)Can I make a phone call?

2)Can I borrow milk?

3)Can you turn down the volume of your TV? I don't like movies with brutality.

4)My son needs help with his homework - what is the spelling for 'police' ?

5)Do you have a hot girl in there by any chance? (Joey Tribbiani from F.R.I.E.N.D.S )

6)I am here to repair your toaster...what?...oh sorry, it says #420, I just assumed its your place, my mistake.

7)Can I use your bathroom?

8)Hey wanna come for a jog? Oh, you don't jog at midnight eh? ok - suit yourself.

9)I was just wondering and I wanted to know, who is our 3rd Prime Minister?

10)Can I play with your dog?

And if he is a really big guy, remember to scram immediately!

Ring the bell - and be a guardian angel!
