I should warn you, I have *nothing* to write about. So if you have important work to do, you are excused. Just FYI, it’s a Friday, and while at that, a Friday before the World Cup Finals. I don’t think you would have important work to do. But whatever, you are excused.
So like I was saying, I have nothing to share, except a killing urge to write something.
For starters, I think India will win the World Cup. Intuition. The last intuition said Ireland, but we’ll give that a pass. I love this festive atmosphere surrounding the world cup. The “almost” half day at work, the huge screens in the office, the unlimited snacks, the Bleed Blue pic badges. I know it’s bordering insanity, but what the hell, GO INDIIIIAAAAAAAAAAAAA! 😀
I tried getting myself an India T-Shirt. All out of stock. Unbelievable. I’ll make do with an ICC WOrld Cup one or a plain blue one, but hello? The intensity of cheering would be lower. Sorry.
My latest obsession is Advertisements. The World Cup Ads have been more disappointing than what I ever imagined they would be. What were they thinking when they shot the Brrrrrrr Ad for Coke? Gabbar bahut khush hoga? The Pepsi Ads on the silly dances and shortcuts for the game? Why would you do that to your brand? And don’t even get me started on Idea’s Keep Cricket Clean campaign. Idea is like a student preparing for GRE. Learnt a new alphabet’s word list today – exhaust it in every conversation till someone slaps you on hearing another word starting with “A”. Some genius at Idea came up with the “No Idea? Get Idea” tagline, and wham! They stopped thinking beyond that. I hate to break this to them, but that tagline, sort of sucked. Sorry.
Okay. Deep breath. Breathe in, breathe out. Phew. I am fine. Tend to get overexcited with this subject. We’ll just change the topic.
I know I am *very* late saying this, but isn’t Modern Family plain awesome? Don’t gape. I missed TV for a whole 5 months. Catching up is going on. On the same note, Grey’s has also got me hooked. Once again. Thank god!
I have said this before, and I am saying it again. What’s with office mail chains? Really? Is it that hard to go to someone’s seat and sort out matters? Seriously? One such silly mail just popped in my inbox. Can’t. Wait. To. Go. Back. To. College. Phew.
Oh in other news, I met an awesome Auto-rickshaw Driver yesterday. He was the sweetest of the lot because he was driving on a Strike Day. How nice is that? He told me all about how he was working hard to finance his brother’s MBA. I was teary-eyed, and so was he. While leaving, he thrust an absolutely un-usable, torn 50 Rupee note in my hands for change. I was busy wiping my tears and of course realised the master cheat’s work today morning. Sweet!
That’s it, I guess. I’ll stop here!
While typing out this absolutely random post, I looked around in my Reader and realised people actually have serious things to write about!! I feel all silly now. 😐
But I’ll go ahead and post this anyway. That’s the new, enthusiastic Blogger in me speaking. Brace yourself.
I got myself a new name too! 😀
