Just a little update

So what’s new?

Big news today is that my favorite team in the IPL, Chennai Super Kings won the cup yesterday 😀 I was so looking forward to the final match, and guess what happened?! I slept through the winning moments! It wasn’t a close match. I was pretty sure that its gonna be Chennai’s game from the beginning. By the time I got up, they were handing over the trophy. But its okay, all I want was that they win. They did, and I’m super happy. I wasn’t much of a help to them in the final match,  but I would like to think that I brought them to the final! Sounds Crazy?! I know 😉

To start off, I’m not a superstitious or spiritual or ‘any-of-that-kind’ person. But when it comes to cricket, I’m all that. I love cricket. But that doesn’t mean that I watch every team’s match. If I have to watch it, Team India must be playing . Or in the case of IPL, the team with my favorite cricketer should be playing.  In all the four seasons of IPL, its been Chennai Super Kings. And if you think that it so obvious and its because Mahendra Singh Dhoni is playing – You are so wrong! My favorite cricketer [Well, at-least for now] is … wait for it.. wait for it.. Suresh Raina! Stunned?! If yes, I don’t care! So, that’s why I support CSK.

Back to the point- Superstitions. Imagine that My team is bowling and badly needs a wicket. There I am hoping for a miracle, and it happens. They get a wicket. Whatever bizzare thing I was doing, the very second they got the wicket like adjusting the cushion, Or  sitting upright, or folding my hands or texting, or anything, I do it again whenever they need another wicket. Sometimes I change the channel for just 1 minute, my team hits a six! So I keep changing the channel till the end of the match. Its hard work, all worth it! 😀  Okay that’s enough. Hope you get the point.

What else?

I hate the climate these days. I usually like going out in the sun, but not now. Even walking 5 or 10 minutes in the sun is so tiring. Good news is that according to the weather forecast, its gonna rain here from tomorrow. I’m probably going to write about how much I hate rain, in the next few days!

Have you heard about the Vodafone Super Weeks? I was so excited because I own a Vodafone sim. And what do I get?

Week 1 : Free Facebook, Twitter and Orkut surfing. [Guess what? I already pay Rs 95 to get the 2GB internet on phone. I already have this plan activated so I didn’t get anything out of the Week 1]

Week 2: Download Games for free [ Awesome- I thought. But it turns out I was getting an error that it was not supported in my phone.]

Week 3: Free access to Yahoo Mail and Gmail [Again,  I have the 2GB plan activated. No use again]

Week 4: Free Cricket week. Access to all Cricket sites [Again! Need I say more?]

Week 5: Download unlimited songs for free. [Now that was something I like. But the Vodafone site had like 20 unknown songs and all very bad songs!]

Week 6: Free unlimited mobile internet [hmmm.. Rs. 95, 2GB. You get it]

And that was it. Super weeks was a total rip-off, for me atleast.

I know that the title of this post is ‘Just a little update’- But I had a lot to update about! 😛

Oh, and to all the football fans out there [Especially my two crazy friends] “Congrats Barca!”

Worst driver I know

Worst driver i know, eh? That’ll be me! Guilty as charged!

Well, you can’t blame me because I’ve never ever driven a car! I haven’t taken driving lessons yet. I’m busy gal. Never found the time to join the class. But I’m gonna, soon.

Other than that, the worst drivers I know would be our very own bus drivers.  Especially the one in a rickety bus going through my little village! Its an old bus with old employees!! Everything’s old in this bus! Old is not gold, here!

Anyone who ‘text and drive’ and ‘Drink and drive’ are bad drivers.

Is Nuclear Energy A Menace? Or The Future?

Is Nuclear energy a menace? or the future? Should the recent events in Japan define how we think about nuclear power forever? Why or why not? Are there any major sources of power without risks or downsides?

I don’t know much abut this topic. But i’ll try.

Nuclear energy is definitely the future.

Nuclear Power

It is here to stay in spite of all happenings in Japan. Of course, we have to lot of things into consideration while finding a place for the nuclear plant. It has to be in an area where the probability of natural disasters occurring is very low.  Or it should be in a low populated area. Even then, we won’t be 100% sure that nuclear plants are safe.

Nuclear power will be abandoned only when we find an energy resource which has no side effects or danger.

Forget 2012, when do you think the world will end?

First of all, how can you forget 2012 after all that fuss? huh? According to the Mayan Calender and the Hollywood, World is going to end on December 21, 2012.  But seriously, I don’t think the world would end in 2012. I’m ready to bet on it. [If the world doesn’t end, I win. And If the world does end, y’all will be dead!]

Everything has a beginning and an end. So the world will end. May be today, tomorrow, in a year or even in a 100 years. Till then enjoy what you got, and be happy.
