When my daily horoscope said...

My horoscope for 19th May '09 said...
'You will be faced with a problem today. A Gemini will come to your aid'
Instantly I knew..today is the day when I will find a .. Gemini friend...something like..'a friend in need is a friend indeed'....(whatever that meant..:)
Anyway, first thing was me falling in trouble, which is a rare case (considering spending majority of my time in office vellegiri). But I just found the whole proposition so tempting that I put up a status message that read 'A Gemini is supposed to help me today!'
What enused was a series of discussions and discoveries. For starters, I was offered help by many Geminis I knew (rather I discovered that they were Geminis..) Then came the many specualtions as to why geminis have been given the special privilege. Of course the college crowd could go no further than who is 'the' gemini you are looking for. Then came a very funny conclusion that maybe the Gemini (the privileged Gemini) will actually h…

Reunion...of sorts

Long weekend...got over...and come monday, I was still in the 'ftp' (i.e. full time pass...coined by Mohsin) mood. Was discussing some arbitrary...stuff wid a buddy (Hemant) and we stumbled upon the idea of a reunion of PICT (comp ppl who are in town). Initially just floated messages and tried to find out if people are actually interested. After we received affirmatives and saw that people were enthusiastic about meeting up, we started getting plans into place.First of all a day...time..and place. Most of the people suggested Sunday is a good day, and a place in the center of the city would be better, we decided on Sunday Mocha (Law college road). This plan was almost final (we finalised it ourselves actually, since people couldn't really suggest a place for 15-20 people).

dessert'a'holic

Its not that all those around haven't found out till now, that I could gobble up innumerable pastries...one after another. CadB, shrikhand..almost anything sweet goes down in a jiffy. After having an incomparable sizzling brownie at Mainland, I didn't want to go for anything else. But thankfully, after reading the description in the menu, we just called for it to give it a try.
Chocolate rolls with ice cream. Sounds usual. When it appeared, our reaction was 'ok we'll have it'
But when I took it close...its nothing like the usual...a roll... overflowing with thick...yummy chocolate sauce. Add to it a little vanilla icecream and put it in. It felt out of this world. Rather i was transported to another world...a world in which the rivers flow with chocolate and the rocks are brownies...The leaves are pastries and everything around me is chocable....:)
It was one hell of a dessert. Not sure if it contained something that made me feel drowsy..and dizzy.  Next time I go to Ma…
