Status Update(s)

I love reading what's happening.... what you're thinking... how you feel....
Facebook updates totally rocks...

I have been observing all the folks on my friend list (and they number close to 400) as they go about their daily lives .... putting in that update every once in a while.
There are the thinkers... the feelers... the action oriented folks (doing something).. the WHY ME kinda folks... and the list goes on!!
It makes my day to read these updates, if nothing else - i chortle and do my own lil round of internal laughter

The ones I liked today...

  • a young lady wonders - if she will have to choke the bitch?? <ANGER MANAGEMENT BABE!!!>
  • another one - which plan to execute A , B or C?? <VACILLATION IS NOT THE KEY>
  • a confused soul goes WHY!!!! <THAT'S A BIG QUESTION DUDE>
  • an engineer in the making is waiting at the DENTIST.  <OOH PAINFUL>
  • one gentleman clamors - 3 more days to the weekend!! <YES I'M LOOKING FWD TO IT TOO>
  • The sports enthusiast - waiting for the Champions league to begin
  • one cool lady exclaims - if life gives you a lemon, break out the tequila and salt
  • a fried is home for a few days - will be off sailing thereafter
  • one lawyer - being messy!! <PLEASE GO TO THE TOILET>
  • an IT PRo - feeling empty inside
  • a creative genius - doing stuff he has never done before
  • someone is moving out of the nerd closet!!! <WHERE DOES ONE GO AFTER THAT>
  • a stunned media exec goes - dang the OSCARS have gone desi!! From BEYONCEs booty to PINK GHAGRAs

  • a recession sick rockstar <NO MORE CONCERTS.... AND NO NEWS COVERAGE EITHER>
  • a sales guy RELISHING chulbuli imli <GUYS EATING IMLI THESE DAYS.....>

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is.
