Virgin Radio

afternoon musings

They’re playing “Lola” by The Kinks on Virgin Radio. I really like this song – first heard it on Go 92.5, driving down Juhu Beach in Mumbai. I didn’t know then it was about a rather unfortunate encounter, though. Not that it changes anything, the song is really catchy.

In my attempts to reverse the effects of a sedantary lifestyle, I have decided to lighten up my intake of food. So, lunch was two microbananas, followed by small bowls of dal, dahi a few slices of tomato, and a few spoonfuls of rice. I finished my plate, felt all nice and happy about it.
And then as I was walking back to my desk, I picked up a huge handful of salted, oily potato chips. “C’est La Vie”, the fat, smirking devil in my head sighed.

I’m still undecided about whether the losing of money in laundry is worth the joy that comes from finding it back again.

Oh, and I watched Batman Begins yesterday. After the disastrous George Clooney movie and 70’s televison serial episodes; this one makes up for the damage, and finally gets it right. A couple of facts are distorted, but I’m okay with that, considering the great job they did in trying to explain what Batman is really about.

on the importance of timepass

A friend said this, I somehow think this is a nontrivial sentence:

“I am not looking for quality here. I am looking for passing time.”

Another quote from one of the Brit ads on Virgin Radio, which could be such an apt slogan for a search engine company:

“Why go anywhere else? Search Me!”
