awesome meta joke

[beat this, cartel people!]

Ok, so if I enthusiastically pull up my night trousers and deliver this very joke to you, what would I be doing?

I'll be taking PJs to a whole new level!!!!

no comment

No more comments at Vantage Point: another blogger bites the "no more comments" pill. I've always preferred to keep things rather quite here on arnab.org, mostly for the same reasons. If I had time, I'd google for examples of other bloggers who've done similar things, especially one which said: "If you have to shout, shout it from your rooftop, not mine".

Anyway, why I'm writing about this is because I'm not really in favour of total curfew either, and prefer to choose which posts I'd like to encourage discussion on.

Rasam ingestion protocol

Had rasam for lunch today, which led to my brain popping up a few questions I'd love to have answers to:

  1. Do you eat rasam, or do you drink rasam?
    Rasam in culinary taxonomy would find its place in the "soups" category. While a soup is eaten, I find the concept of eating rasam a little hard to digest. any comments?
  2. My second question is a more important one, since I'm afraid I might be doing this wrongly: How do you eat rasam with rice? Is there a method to this, one that does not involve making a swimming pool out of one's plate?

Redesign

Six Apart revamped their website, consolidating their assets (TypePad, MovableType, and LiveJournal). I don't like the new design - looks like a girl with too much make up on. Also, I don't like the way they've used Flash to load up custom fonts.

the girl of my dreams

Veteran readers of this weblog might remember an attempt at starting a themed selection of blog posts of this title, wherein I ponder upon possible encounters with various members of the fairer sex. Here's one for Valentine's Day, which also happens to be the day I was born. Some people call it a fortunate coincidence, but I disagree:

Me: "Hey there. It's my birthday today."
Her:"Duh. Can't you guys come up with anything better?"
Me: "No, really! it is my birthday!."
Her: "Creep." (walks off)

Beyond contexual advertising

Want Friends? Socialize!

We can interpret this in two ways. One, by saying that people like to state the obvious and spend money on advertisements doing that. Or two, that there now exists technology to actually detect the status of a person's social life via a browser.
