What a year!!!

Surely this past year will be one of those that people will remember a lot. Unfortunately not many will remember it with much fondness :( For me this year has had it's share of highs and lows.

But I am not going to complain, I am happy with the way things have gone. I wish everyone around me too felt the same way. But that's ok. I am sure the coming year will have lots of new avenues and happiness for everyone.

Here's wishing everyone a much Happier, healthier and prosperous 2009 :)

Winter = reading, TV and movies

So it's winter. I am not sure i love this season as much as I used to love it at one point, that point being when I wasn't the lazy butt i am today.

It is dark outside at 5:30 pm, and that's like the middle of the day, or rather the beginning of the day for folks who work an 8-5 day and are headed home to get the evening (read day) started. So I get home with full enthu to cook us a brilliant, hot dinner very quickly and then head to the gym. Now the moment I reach home, I take Dodo out in the back yard, where it's freezing (to my body, which thinks anything below 65 is cold) and Dodo and I rush back into the house, which is also fairly cold, since the heater hasn't yet kicked in.

At this point, i turn the TV on, I am still trying to get dinner ready quickly. By 6:30 ish it's done. It's pitch dark outside, by now.
Now the mind begins to play games, I could simply sit on the couch snuggled inside the throws, Dodo on my lap or feet and watch some TV. Do I really want to venture out in the cold dark night and get on a treadmill or elliptical? When I could be reading or watching TV or best a movie?

The heart wins and the brain numbs in the cold :)

Come off it!

What is Mr Zardari complaining about? The weakness of his government? So who's to blame for that? So if your government is being attacked by Islamic extremist militant group, shouldn't you be doing something about it, rather than complain to the world? How could it be that you were able to find the group and capture it within a matter of days? It means that you knew all along where they were operating from? Don't you dare ask the Indians to breathe, we'll very well do what we have to do. And it just reeks of malice when he says that "domestic political considerations" are the driving force of the indian government. Atleast we have that, what's your excuse for not doing a thing but crying to the world how completly inept your own government is.
