Mobile blogging

writing has slowly evolved from the random scribbling in the depths of pre-historic cave walls to qwerty keypads of my new htc aria. this is my first blog in a while and nothing less than the fact that it is on an android phone with useless data pulan has forced me to do this. After multiple tyops and backspaces, i have been able to compose this masterpiece. now to hit the publish button....

Three Strikes

Other day, my friend and i were discussing. He is in a new relation and he was telling me, how you can easily miscommunicate in chat. No better way to say: the same words can mean different things. I feel that in a relation (not to sound too much like the worst female Carrie Bradshaw), your first strike is when you miscommunicate over chatting. You call up to explain yourself. Later, you miscommunicate over the phone. You apologize face-up. The last strike is when you miscommunicate directly and that's it, you are OUT!

Going Skiing in a few minutes. Last time i went it was fun and a lot of falling on the ass. That was back in Seattle. I was super confident that i will be skiing the slopes like i was born on them with a silver skiis attached to my feet. Reality is rude. And, i don't like waking up. Any way, i have some tricks stuck under my sleeves this time and i hope to one-up its this afternoon.

Fun while driving

We all have our share of close shaves with the law enforcers when we are on the road. A few days ago, at a potluck party, we were sharing some very interesting stories of desis being stopped for "reckless" driving. I thought i will share some of these stories that had us in splits.

A friend of another friend was fresh off the boat and was driving around some college town. He found stopping at stop signs annoying and used to stop only if he deemed life threatening. One fine deserted afternoon he zipped through eight or nine stop signs and caught the attention of a cop. The cop happened to be in civilian clothing and was off-duty and he still followed him. According to the cop, he HAD to see the guy who could just discard stop signs with such remarkable disdain :).

Another friend of a friend was driving around on a Texas highway and was pushing close to 100. He saw an emergency vehicle pull up behind him with its lights flashing. He pushed the speed higher to allow the emergency vehicle to go faster and eventually go to Austin. At this point, he was at an intersection and was suddenly surrounded by half a dozen cop cars. He decided to take matters into his own hand, so he got down to explain his situation to the cops. You can imagine how those guys responded but you have to give this guy points for being proactive :D

I have a few others which we will talk about later.
