Britney Spears

copycat

Observations from my playlist:

  • The tune for the title track for the movie “Lakshya” by Shankar, Ehsaan & Loy is a direct copy of the guitar riff in AC|DC’s “Hard as a rock”.
  • A.R. Rahman’s “Thaiyya Thaiyya” seems eerily remeniscent of The Corr’s “Silver Strand”.
  • I have songs from Britney Spears on my playlist, which I don’t delete, just to have them pop up at unforseen moments. My body breaks into spasms, the moment I hear them, which is a great way to stay awake when working late.

good bad ugly

Oh man, I'm tired... Life is just so hectic these days. Let's try categorizing them:

Good: The TV's back. 2 days after it going kaput, Dad opened it up on the dining table, used the vacuum cleaner to suck out all the dirt, and replaced the fuse wire that had blown. Some of the advantages in life when your father is a news-and-cricket-hungry electronics engineer.

My birthday was a really cool day. My cousin sister called up all the way from Salt Lake City in the US - it was so cool to talk international! Then many other calls came in, IM messages popped up all over my computer screen. Woke up in the morning with a very happy mood (this doesn't happen too often), and Mom gives me a really sweet geeky birthday card. I come back after brushing my teeth, and there's a huge chocolate cake on my table! Mom had kept it in the fridge, and I hadn't noticed! Well, I got dressed and stuff, and blew out 20 candles. It was almost like blowing out an entire bush fire in one breath. Man, I feel old. Then I had cake and Payesh for breakfast. In the evening, went to Ashish's place, and from there we went to a school reunion / Valentine's / general party. We reached "fashionably late" (that's supposedly what people call 10:30 in the night). It was fun meeting all my school friends again.
