Because some stuff is just better said

Slumdog Millionaire won four Golden Globes. India is particularly overjoyed with the one AR Rahman won for original soundtrack. I join the world when I say. " Am I surprised?" Rahman has been great, not once, not twice, not a couple more times, but every single time. Dil Se, Rangeela, Jaane tu ya jaane na and now this. Jai ho!

The late edition of the news last night said that the latest fad in Goa is "silent parties." Yes, such a thing can exist, apparently. It involves giving people a pair of headphones before they hit the dance floor. They can tune into three available channels and dance the night away with blaring music between their ears but silence just outside that "dance zone." They're allowed to continue well into the next morning because they aren't even waking up the neighbours. Go figure!

I really hate goodbyes.

Imagine how ridiculous the silent dancing would look..I'd probably just go there to watch people look mental and laugh my head off and then they'd have to close the club early anyway cuz the laughing will wake the neighbours up.. :D
And it's been said twice already but yes hellos (?) will be round the corner :)

I deal with goodbyes as if they were just another formality/tradition for times to come...
