Ice cream facial

Thats what I got for my birthday. McSwirl swirled all over my face. Felt good though given the hot summer :).

Subbu had come over the previous nite with a cake. Didn't expect him at all - a nice suprise. Just the two of us.

Enna kodumai sir ithu !!

Wanted to write that in Telugu except that I don't know it. But the meaning of the title sums it up. The context being the following link. The only guy who can beat our dear old Captain. And for those who want more. Enjoy !

Its interesting when one sees such out of the world, superhuman actions/stunts. The question is about presentability and context I guess. I am sure many Hollywood movies also have such out of the world concepts and stunts, though in those cases we would be watching watching with our mouths wide open in amazement. (Yes, I agree that we watch the above links too with wide open mouths - but in laughter !). Whats the difference one might question ? For one, the way it "looks". I often wonder whether such directors are that stupid to take such scenes. Maybe its fan pressure. Another difference is the practical context. In a movie which is supposed to be treated realistically, such scenes throw you completely off mood. Maybe in a concept movie, this might have appeared better. But then, our people are so afraid of taking such concept movies. After all, in the end its the audience that matters and I consider myself a part of its minority.

Goes to show that we need much better expertise in taking movies before we can start comparing ourselves with Hollywood. But I completely agree that we have the required talent and skills in many of our actors, directors, singers, music directors etc.

April fool joke turnes us into fools ...

Well yeah .. Our recent April fool joke at office backfired. :( Not just backfiring .. it was as if we were aiming our guns directly at us all the time !!

It was a good one though. (Am not going to tell you what it was) Had great mazzaa doing it with the 'fun' team in our group. But I guess we went a teeny weeny bit too far. But I dont feel sorry for it. It was great fun :). Made some great preps and next day morning, it was Phhhhssshhhhhhhhhh .... Add to that our "nenaps" that we were still doing fine. But things went pretty serious after lunch. "Apologies for the inconvenience" followed suit.

PS: Lost a bet and have to give a treat :(. We are now giving the April fool cards that we bought to each other :((
