Short year

65 degrees on a November afternoon? Yeah..I can take it baby! But that’s not all to the day. Half-shut eyes, which even after a heavy dose of caffeine refused to give up the blur — that’s pretty much how the day started.
I blame Yuengling Black & Tan and some energetic senile banjo players for that.

Can’t believe a month long silence in the blog world could end up with me wondering what to write about as there is so much I want to write about.

Followed the elections? Both the local bodies election in Tamil Nadu as well as the senate/congress elections in the USA…I meant.

As always, the governing party pulled all its muscle & money power together for a clean sweep in Tamil Nadu. So much so that it looks like a joke. Well, I know the free TV thingy is a great political slap – but is it this great?

51-49 that’s going to be the balance of power in the US house – It looks like Rumsfeld was made the scapegoat and was made to pay the price for the Republical party’s bad show. But let’s be realistic. This may have been Karl Rove’s “Chanakya” like wisdom coming into the fore again. This probably was the best time for Bush to show the door to Rummy and pick a man of his choice without anyone complaining. And he did that pretty swiftly.

I watched “The Departed” a couple of weeks back with some Artichoke pesto pizza on my lap & Beck’s on the side (VIP seating at the Waterfront theatres in Pittsburgh). All that was not enough to make me term the movie a classic.
The hype and its worth..? Hmmm.. Still thinking.

It is another long day in Monroeville — and the seasons are changing.
Really..it is another short year and we are almost down to the last 50 days.
