home at last.

and with some splendid news that made my cheek muscles go overtime,by laughing ,grinning,your synonym for happiness here ! :)

the reason? well FYI today was the last theoritical exam of my engineering degree(bachelors!).and i am glad i am done with it.

throughout my 7 semesters i have given about umm...some maths invovled here ...... scribble....scribble....scribble....erase...erase....verify with calculator ...... blink ...blink..... tada...the answer is 179 with 6 more to go(vivas).

quite a big sum huh!

this exam however things were different.i usually didnt have the crave to study and this time around surprisingly neither did my roomies.

pure fun!
6 people focusing on just one subject a day,the course was bound to get completed in the given constraint of time .but we couldnt! though we did manage to complete an appreciable portion of course ,dedicating about 8 hours to sleep :D

todays exam was ,in my view a bit complicated ,as in,strenuous!we as usual didnt complete the course :D but the catch was 2 of my roomies were worried about failing in this paper.

yup there you have it,life was never so easy! they learnt and taught,atleast one of them did(taught)!

so all in all ,exams were never this fun! (not cause we wanted to give exams,you rash concluders)

and to top it off,i secured my internship at a reputed company and along with a huge chunk of my collegemates.its going to be a mini-college there!

so that gypsy was right,the planet did finally manage to find its way out to the right place!
good times are here people....truly good times!

so lemme bask in its warm glow and splendour ....ahhh...

word power made easy?

many people ,for instance at my college, especially after entering the 7th semester have this craving to improve their english(nothing wrong there),but it almost seems as if it is natural,as though they are ticked by some biological clock,like the salmon migrating to the artic.

you really get amused when you find a tongue blurting out weird english words,which 6 months earlier couldnt speak plausible english(with all due respect).

for such ardent/zealous(to the above group:are the words sophisticated enough?you would see ten synonyms penned down by their hands in a jiff,if not and your only expression would be a gasp characterized by a huge 'HUH?'), bunch of people here is a challenge to tickle their memory and their new found ability to pronounce weird words.

i was searching the web as i had nothing to kill time with,so here is what i ended up with:words,words that will make you go,"where in the world did that come from?is that even a word?"

here are some of them:

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious ->fantastic idea

antidisestablishmentarianism->opposition to the disestablishment of the Church of England(this one happens to be the most famous one of the lot)

floccinaucinihilipilification->dont even want to know about it


pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis->lung disease caused by something(what were they thinking ,while naming it,the poor patient!)

ok a bumper :
Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch .

guess what? its a name of a village in Wales.

and if you were afraid of these words or words of such category ,you would suffer from :
Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia ->fear of long words

spell them out and once you make it out alive, i guess saying out ,"she sells sea shells on the sea shore ",would be a cake walk.

ok.....i guess this was a boring blog....but just wanted to type something


too many freaks ,too little circuses!

gypsy queen

alright..... you know gypsies....yea the clan which enjoys the most number of myths assosicated with it.

and one of the very famous ones is their innate ability to predict the future! ;)

so i come across one such lady,with the facial features of a typical gypsy crooked nose,with a zit on it,scarf around her hair,circular earrings on her ears (where else!)etc...

she had a setup of a table with a "magic crystal ball" .so i go in to get my future read.

the crystal ball started showing its stuff as the gypsy started moving her hands above it.

she said ,"you are in luck,your career will improve from october 26th".
i said ,"what?"

she said,"your career will improve from october 26th".
i said,"huh ", o_O

she asserted,"your career prospects will improve from october 26th as some planet ,name forgotten is coming to some place/position and thats why you are in luck."

i asked ,"are you certain about it ?"

to which she gave a look as though i had committed a blasphemy and said,"the crystal ball is never wrong,dont challenge its word!"

happy and gay ;) (you bunch of perverts! ) ,i pay the gypsy the fee and usher myself out ,thinking ,"lets see,what is in store for me"

todays date is nov 12th.

i am expecting news from two companies since a week,no progress there.
i got rejected in the aptitude test of a company.(hey i aint judging you! :P)

good career prospects my @r$e! ;)

i dont see anything good happing here.

seems like that dim witted planet has taken up a wrong road and reached somewhere else or way too lazy move its behind to that place ,though it might be right in front of it(too much junk in the trunk ,i guess)

lousy planet! $@!@^$%^#$%$#@%#$
lousy drunken gypsy!

moral of the story: trust a candy from a stranger,never trust a prediction from a gypsy. ^_^

hotel california

"On a dark desert highway,
Cool wind in my hair....."

well i am quite certain that you would have heard this famed song-"Hotel California-Eagles".

yup it is an all time classique.yet there is something very mysterious about this famed song.there is even a reason behind naming its album -"Hell Freezes Over".

first about the album.the band members were having a fued amongst themselves and one of the was quoted ."we would get back together ,when hell would freeze over",implying that it would never happen ,as hell is visioned as a place with fiery flames and heat.

but eventually they got together and they named the album -"Hell Freezes Over".

hotel california has rustled up some leaves as well.

there are many theories behind the theme of the that i came up with was,the gold rush in the 1950s in california.everybody was clamouring to get their share of did i conclude?

Up ahead in the distance,I saw a shimmering light

But this wasnt justified enough.

The second theory talks about satan,drugs etc. and here's how

So I called up the Captain,
'Please bring me my wine'
He said ,"We haven't had that spirit here since 1969"

1969 was the year when the first satanic church was built and they registered it as 'Hotel California'.wine is an important symbol of the blood of Christ for Catholics and many christain denominations.the 'spirit' refers to to the Spirit Of Christ had not been present since 1969,upon the organization of the more alibi to this fact is an another part of the lyrics:

They stab it with their steely knives,
But they just can't kill the beast

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
'Relax,' said the night man,
We are programmed to receive.
You can checkout any time you like,
but you can never leave!

the beast in bible is refered as yours truly "satan".and he is considered immortal.also once you join a satanic cult,you can never leave it!

this one relates to drugs:

Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim

refers to burnt smell of marijuana,and after consumption ,he became dizzy and hence vision blurred .

other theories suggest that ,hotel california was a place haunted with ghosts and they were only alluring the weary traveller to come up to the place and after which they would devour him,and one discusses it being a viewpoint of a long term inmate of a mental hospital(really weird!)

however ,the artists had this to quote (i think):

"The real Hotel California is not a place;it is a metaphor for the west coast music industry and its effect on the talented but unwordly musicians who find themselves ensnared in its glittering web."

there also is a hotel california,the one shown in the pic is of 1950s,in Todos Santos, a town on Mexico's Baja California peninsula.Though the hotel shares its name with the song,it however has no relation as the Eagles say ,they have never been there,and were unaware of it!

whatever the weird concotions may be,this song has truly etched itself in history.the work, lyrically and musically has appeased every soul!

well i hope you enjoyed this piece of information,if you call it information,as for me,i am going to listen to it right now.
