Home sweet home!

That's right, no place like it. No matter where you go, no matter who you're with, ultimately, no other place feels like home. Ofcourse, spending time at my grandparents' place isn't too bad either, feels like i'm at a holiday home, heh. No work to do, just sleep and watch tv all day long..

I'd taken some books and stuff to study too, but i think from the next time i'll keep the junk at home.

I finally put my jeans in for wash. They pushed me past my breaking-point, and that is no small feat. My Lee Coopers. I'll miss them. They've been my companions for the last month and a half. Hope they're back soon. I need to wear them tommorow.

It was pretty lonely coming home today. For the last couple of months, there had always been someone at home. I step in today, and all of a sudden i realise i'm alone once again. Bro in Russia, grandparents back in Thana, and mom, at work. Kickback to the days gone by, when i used to lap up any time i got to spent alone. Adapt and change, i guess.

I watched Se7en. Pretty damn good movie. And one kick-ass of an ending. Brad Pitt aint too hot on my list, but damn, he makes some good career choices. Snatch, Spy Games, Fight Club, Kalifornia. Definetely among some of my best...

Kapil just called from Russia and spoke to mom. It's 8 degrees out there, and apparantly all the jackets and sweaters they took with them are proving to be insufficient. So they're planning on buying some woollens. It should start snowing by next week, so i hope they hurry up.

Well, we just got back from the airport. Kapil's flight was on time. They got in pretty easy. Plus no duty on the excessive weight. Till Delhi atleast. So that's good for them. For the moment..
Boy, what a massive turnout at the airport! All his college buddies, school mates, and even friends from our area had turned up. As it is, the last few weeks had been like one giant party for him. Friends over all the time, him out at their place, dinner invitations, like, wow, that's living it up!!
Anywez, mom, the grans, and me, we waited at the airport till about 6. Even Swarna waited with us. She was crying almost as much as mom. Not me though, no crying on joyous occassions.
What a mad-house!! People all over the place, swarming like the bees over a drop of necter. Everyone had come to meet my bro. And as usual, they came late. So they ended up staying late. And hence, left real late. Leading to us sleeping real late.
We had some kirtans at our house, and most of the people didn't know that it was planned. But they still liked it pretty much. However, i'd say the food could have been better. People seemed to devour it like there was no tommorow, but not me. Maybe i'm more fickle than most people.

It's morning now, and we couldn't sleep late. I had to get the final packing done for my brother. We should be leaving for the airport by about 2:30. His flight is at 5:40, and Pushkar's pop is operating the flight to delhi. So it's gonna be cool for them..

Just got back from the, zzzzz... theatre where I just, zzzzz... saw, zzzz... Baghban. The movie is, zzzzz... so excruciatingly, zzzzz... slow and long.
But Hema Malini is still as gorgeous as ever. An so is Lillette Dubey. And Amitabh Bachchan is overrated.
A good story, with surprisingly good songs. But still, soooo, very, freakin' slow and long. They should have trimmed it by an hour atleast.

Also saw Hulk. Contrary to popular belief, i loved the direction. Ang Lee's use of split screens was very cool. However the FX were a let-down. Didnt really gel with most of the outdoor shots. Like the Hulk Dogs scene. Felt very unnatural. And in one shot, the poodle-dog had no shadow. But still, very smooth direction, and great script. And great Jennifer Connely too.

BowWow!! Seven cds in my hand and u expect me to study? 3 music videos, 1 game, and 1 movie cd. Plus two RW's, with some softwares and lotsa crap. Nice..
Yesterday night, i was aiming for VB or Java. Or hell, maybe even some ERP. i guess it's hard to study when your eyes refuse to remain open. As it is, staying up till 3 can do wierd things to your mind. Like what Dhana and Khamba were doing....

I just got home from Dhana's, some time back, and can just about manage to post this, with my net connection crawling along slower than a turtle with arthritis. Plus, i'm cold. Hanging out of the train when it's pouring cats and dogs isn't exactly the smartest of ideas, but hey, better wet than suffocated, i always say.
