Twin Tags

*Edited to format the post a little. Looks way too much like my Masters thesis. 😛

Two tags and my crazy week has prevented me from doing them. But that week is finally over and I am free as a fiddle. (yeah, yeah, judge all you want, I’ll use whatever expression I want, this is MY blog. Booyah.)

Moving on, Pixie and Lavs tagged me and I shall finally do the honors. 🙂 I hate not being the first one ot take it up, oh well, grad school.

  • Last Movie You Saw In A Theater: Forgetting Sarah Marshall
  • What Book Are You Reading: Right now, nothing, but there’s this Beatles biography that I want to start soon. Summer’s here, yayy!
  • Favorite Board Game: Cranium
  • Favorite Magazine: I don’t do magazines, it’s pointless trashy reading about stuff you either know already anyway or have no use for.
  • Favorite Smells: Of spring, of flowers blooming, of the wet earth after the first rain, of my Mom’s sambar..
  • Favorite Sound: Hearing my Mom call me when she’s online, of music, of water
  • Worst Feeling In The World: Insecurity
  • First Thing You Think Of When You Wake Up? Ah, crap someone turn off the Godforsaken alarm!
  • Favorite Fast Food Place: Nan-king Express, Ganesh Bhel in Pune
  • Future Child’s Name: Haven’t thought about it, but I have always liked the name Sridhar. I don’t know any good girl names. 😦
  • Finish This Statement. “If I Had A Lot Of Money I’d…” go to India every 6 months.
  • Do You Drive Fast? Never above the speed limit.
  • Do You Sleep With A Stuffed Animal? Does a hug-pillow count?
  • Storms-Cool Or Scary? Scary as hell.
  • What Was Your First Car? My one and only, my precious, my love, my Chrysler Sebring.
  • Favorite Drink: Coffee.
  • Finish This Statement, “If I Had The Time I Would …..” learn to play an instrument, read all the books I want to, watch all the movies I want to, travel, blah blah blah.
  • Do You Eat The Stems On Broccoli? Eurgh, broccoli!
  • If You Could Dye Your Hair Any Color, What Would Be Your Choice? I’d like to go wild. Pink or purple or green, perhaps? But I’d like to have a sombre Burgundy as well.
  • Name All The Different Cities/Towns You Have Lived In: Chennai, Bangalore, Pune, Highland Park.
  • Favorite Sports To Watch: F-1
  • One Nice Thing About The Person(s) Who Sent This To You: Pixie is one of those passionate I-will-say-something-if-I-don’t-like-it types. Quite a reflection of me. Lavs is very demure, very peaceful and very pregnant!
  • What’s Under Your Bed? Well, I only got a proper bed last week. Until then, my bed was on the floor. Right now my bed is a box with blankets and sleeping bags stored underneath. Elaborate enough?
  • Would You Like To Be Born As Yourself Again? Yes, pliss.
  • Morning Person Or Night Owl? Night owl, always the prowler.
  • Over Easy Or Sunny Side Up? I don’t eat eggs. They make me throw up. Now you tell me.
  • Favorite Place To Relax: Swimming pool.
  • Favorite Pie: I haven’t eaten too many, but I’d have to say blueberry. As you can probably tell, I have what we call the opposite of the sweet tooth.
  • Favorite Ice Cream Flavor: Triple Banana Split with nuts sprinkled on top, the kind you get only in Thomas Sweet, Princeton. 😀

You pass this tag to – Umm, everyone I know has already done it, but if Rayshma hasn’t then she’s gonna take it up.

“I tell people secrets. I makes them like me.'”

Chandler’s words never rang truer.

It's official

Two presentations. Consecutive days.

One project.

Six papers. Meeting with prof to discuss those papers.

One final exam. Open book, open notes.

Moving. To be squeezed in somewhere between all the above.

And a fight. 2 huge fights. Turmoil.

My life officially sucks.

(nlogn) solution to TSP

The traveling salesman problem has finally been solved!!

P.S.: A porn-related post and I haven’t named either Sailesh or UberT? Hawhawhaw.

Whatever you wanna call it

How is it that people you care for the most have the power of hurting you the most?


How is it that a show about a talking(?!) gay(??!) dog whose lover is a human being(:O) from Philippines(why on earth..?) is so popular?!!!
