Just being random

I was terribly mean y'day. For a moment, I just lose myself to the wicked selfish demon in me. Sorry sweetie! I really didn't mean to hurt you, it happened on an impulse.
Apart from that I was being myself. Morning Vinaya,Vaikhari and myself go to a video rental shop (which is one whole lollipop far away{waise, the lollipop was yummy!}), and rent a lot of cd's to last for the 4 days at home. Yes sirreee, it holiday time again, sigh! Now you'll have to put up with my whining. From the lot I rented, I've already finished watching one cd. Its an 80's Malayalam slapstick movie and had me rolling all over my chair clutching my sides laughing!

Oh, by the way, I really got blown away by this song of Linkin Park "Leave out all the rest", I'd heard it a couple of times before. But yesterday, somehow I felt like I was listening to it for the first time.. Powerful words, about the same insecurity most of us have. "Will I be missed when I'm gone?" That kind of thing.. I'm giving the lyrics below, couldn't resist myself!
I dreamed I was missing/You were so scared
But no one would listen/'Cause no one else cared.

After my dreaming/I woke with this fear
What am I leaving/When I'm done here

So if you're asking/Then I want you to know-

When my time comes/Forget the wrongs that I've done
Help me leave behind some/Reasons to be missed

And don't resent me/When you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory/ Leave out all the rest..Leave out all the rest

Thats just the beginning, but doncha agree it's beautiful? Sadow of thee day is another soothing song, I loved.

Lets change topics. I had a class test this monday. And for the first time this year, I see every of my classmates together in the classroom! Happy time! Nah, mates aren't so nerdy to sit together just bcos of a test. This one was the internal assessment stuff. Good paper, but answer paper proved to be sliiiiiiightly tough, hehe! But it was more about creative writing, so that was fun. And I was acting pretty weird. I'd finish writing the answer to something,and I'd whistle.
Loud and clear.
Which irritated Vinaya, who kept kicking me whenever I whistled. I was pretty much whistling throughout the test paper! Which reminds me, Namitha doesn't know how to aankh-maarna (wink), or to whistle! The rest of the buddies know the one-eyed saucy wink, but whistling is yet to mastered. I know how to whistle! I know!
And that reminds me, I believe we have a telepathic bond; us girls. 'Cos, whener one suggested something or remarked something, the rest would look up in amazement and say,"I was thinking the same damn thing!" And if you're still skeptic, get lost! This telepathy just seems to get stronger day by day!

Global warming is DEFINITELY around. I know I must be worried at changed climate patterns, but how can I ever be worried when its raining?! Rain makes me fall in love with e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g ! Simply everything. Even the baddest situation is only manageable if it happens when it raining. My only grievances are the constant power cuts and the sticky wet mud.

I came across this website called guitarshredshow. You can learn all about how to play guitars from this website,according to them. I checked it, and a virtual guru comes up and asks me to breathe in and out,in and out,in and out...until finally I lose patience and say,"buzz off!" So if you check this website and understand whats it all about, do tell me!

And I really wanna the bike rides. Truly,madly,deeply wishing for some long rides in the rain. Namitha and yours truly are at college, and whenever some friend zooms past on a bike, we're like, "mera number kab aayega,jaan?" Some hard hitting, thriller ride anyone?

Drew a lot of flak from Vinaya and Vaikhari for the candid contempt I have for the regional movies. I say things like "blae", and make faces when they discuss Malayalam and Tamil movies. They really hate that. And for them its almost patriotism! As if I'm some anti national! Vaikhari gives me a speech that wherever I go across the world, these are the things I willl be identified with. Now that I think of it, maybe she thought I hate the whole culture. No. I love my place, the colourful culture, the ironical dry humour, the many festivals.. If anything, I'm proud of it all. But please don't ask me to watch 'em movies. Except for a very rare few, I think the industry hasn't much to offer.

By the way, I'm thinking of doing a DIY pedicure. Any tips?

J asked for the compilation that made it rain. Here goes!
Creamer-Limp Bizkit
My sacrifice-Creed
In my place-Coldplay
Remember the name-Fort Minor
My Immortal/ Bring me to life/ Imaginary- Evanescence
Wake me up when September ends-Green Day
Cold hard bitch-Jet
Twisted Transisitor-Korn
Wake/Hands held high/The little things give you away/Shadow of the Day/Leave out all the rest/ What I've done/ My december/Its going down/One step closer- Linkin Park
Sweet Home Alabama-Lynyrd Skynyrd
Figured you out/If everyone cared/Far away-Nickel Black
This I promise you- N'Sync
Californication/Dani California- RHCP
I knew I loved you/Affirmation/ Animal Song-Savage Garden
Addicted-Simple Plan
Wherever you will go-The Calling
Sail away/No fear-Rasmus

So? If you can pick out which my rain-feel songs are, 10 points to you! And if you can make out which my personal favourites are, bonus points and a yellow star too! Here's a clue, I simply lurve hard rock and jazz. Plus punk,funk, slow, blah blah. Sorry. that was a pretty tough clue. But what can I say? I love every genre. Reggae, electronic, metal, strings whatevah. I love music.
Have a rainy day,I hope! I'm having rain here.
J, I dunno if the charm of the rain wears off when passing the compilation along. Good luck anyway.

P.S- I'm watching "Music and Lyrics", good movie, as far as I saw. Can anybuddy get me the lyrics of "way back into love"?Please, please? Pretty please?

[Verse 1]
(Drew Barrymore)
I've been living with a shadow overhead,
I've been sleeping with a cloud above my bed,
I've been lonely for so long,
Trapped in the past,
I just can't seem to move on!

(Hugh Grant)
I've been hiding all my hopes and dreams away,
Just in case I ever need them again someday,
I've been setting aside time,
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind!

All I want to do is find a way back into love.
I can't make it through without a way back into love.

[Verse 2]
(Drew Barrymore)
I've been watching but the stars refuse to shine,
I've been searching but i just don't see the signs,
I know that it's out there,
There's got to be something for my soul somewhere!

(Hugh Grant)
I've been looking for someone to shed some light,
Not somebody just to get me through the night,
I could use some direction,
And I'm open to your suggestions.

All I want to do is find a way back into love.
I can't make it through without a way back into love.
And if I open my heart again,
I guess I'm hoping you'll be there for me in the end!
Oooooooh, Ooooooh, Ooooooh.

(Drew Barrymore)
There are moments when I don't know if it's real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation

All I want to do is find a way back into love,
I can't make it through without a way back into love,
And if I open my heart to you,
I'm hoping you'll show me what to do,
And if you help me to start again,
You know that I'll be there for you in the end!
Oooooooh. Oooooooh. Ooooooooh. Oooooooh. Ooooooh Ooooooooh. Ooooooooh.

as for the's a nice flick....
"A melody is like seeing someone for the first time. The physical attraction. Sex. But then, as you get to know the person, that’s the lyrics. Their story. Who they are underneath. It’s the combination of the two that makes it magic."

I hope the rain charm doesn't fade off....

nyways, what do I get with all these in what's my prize if I complete a 100.....lolz....
