Hello, mister mister.
I hear you've been established as Yaseen.

That's lovely, mother. Very beautiful.

Here. Do Something.

Febi Bebi

My dearest sweetest Fabida...
God bless, God bless. I was skipping with joy, I was hitting the roof, I was calling up unknown people to say:
Hey!! Hey, you!! My frund from the good older days, my partner in many unspeakables, my madness-equivalent from before I can clearly remember, is now a MOTHER! Can you believe the magic in them few words? The prettiness of everything? The way the colours are all brighter in a "Requiem for a Dream" kind of way?

I'm completely stunned, grinning, and kicked in the extremest.[Ye gods! Not in the 'extremities', in the 'extremest'. There's a world of difference.]
Oh, but I am a happiness.

The Big Day:
Sunday, 23rd September, 2005- circa 1900 hrs, California somewhere.
That would be, let's see, Ramadan 19th/ 20th, Hijri 1426, yes?

Spoke with your Samir the next morning. Could hear him smiling all the way over here.
He says you have a whopper: 4kgs and then some.. Yay!
Tell me fastestly what name you decide upon.

I am going away now. To do a celebratory tribal jig. In some corner where innocent children won't be liable to chance upon such a ghastly sight... We hope.

Vitriol, why not?

What pisses me off is that it has taken less than a month for the entire world and its uncle to forget that there was a terrible terrible quake, along with its aftermath, in Kashmir.

And what pisses me off even more, is that from Day 2 onwards, what was being thrown around in discussions more than relief and assistance packages, was whether the 2 ballsy neighboring factions could use this tragedy to become better friends and smile over coffee someday.

In further pissification news, I spoke with my people back in Kashmir, and even there, no one is really bothered. Bollocks and more.

The first snows have fallen. In any case, post September it always is bloody chilly up in the mountains, whether it's snowy or not. If it's not the snow,
it's cold, painfully cold rain.

And my people have no tents, no blankets, no nothing.

Aww. I hope India and Pakistan can really learn to better understand each other.
I really farking do.

Bumming on the Beach, Plan A

The last week and more has been a little crazy.
More than a little. Breathing space at work was cut down to bare miniminimumunimunum.
Or something.
This week has been so-par-suksex-full.

Am planning on romantic weekend trip with Tits. We have to first settle upon a place,
then cross our t's and dot the i's.
Mins like to say, we have to finalise everything. After we initialise them.

Looks like it's going to be a next Friday eve to following Sunday night thingy.
And we've sort of centred down on Podicherry, as the place to be going for.
Boomsa, shall we make it a cosy threesome?


Come off, I say.

That's relief packages being chuted down. Tragic doesn't beging to describe things.

Many books

Have received and been floored with books.
The unit of measurement would not be 1,2,3 no.s.
More appropriate to what I received last eve would be in tonnage. To approximate, I think I rceived 14 tonnes of book from Boomsa, sourced from the kindly OldMonk.
Yay, mins!

Thwanxx thwanxx thwanxx.

The Lovely Bones

Bones called me the other night.
And we talked and we talked, and nothing in particular was dicussed,
and everything was said, and in short, it was lovely.
It was a wonderfuls just to hear her.
Love you many, Boneses. See you here swoonest.

PS: Have also started reading book of same name by Alice Sebold, given me by a Boomsa. So par, I have been sukseksfull in louwing it, Hanifi.
Just seeing this brings tears to my eyes... *sniffle*
Six in a row. Yippee.
And that's the way it's done!

this-funniest-of-all link.

Have a look-see.

Yesterday, being a second Friday [I swear I don't know when the original
First Friday was], there was the thingamajig-gig that always happens at at B'ista.

Li'l Jude sang with siblings. 2 of them, in fact.
She was, and they all were, very brilliant. Superb song selections.
K.D. Lang, and Del Amitri, John Mayer.

Coming back to the siblings.....
Have come away crushed on either/or. Depending on whether the song was
heavily acoustic guitarred, or, on the other hand, heavily electrified.

I swung both ways last night!
