Batista & Kali ...Ew

Yesterday was a complete bore. I tried fiddling with the computer a bit, but my job requires me to fiddle with them damn things for 8 hours per day. So I thought what the hell, its Sunday after all - and turned my attention to tv. Unfortunately brother dear had already seized the throne ; aka in possession of the remote. :( I had no choice but to sit and watch what his highness was watching...And we watched *drumroll*.....
Batista Vs Kali on something called No Mercy. (?)
First there was this huge yucky guy named Kali ( supposedly after the Hindu goddess - but why is a GUY named Kali?? Isnt Kali supposed to be FEMALE? huh ??)
and he was inside a bamboo cage. He was strutting about for a bit and then another guy named Batista showed up. Batista was also yucky but less so because he was less huge and therefore appeared to be at least human and not a long lost brother of Hagrid. Anywayz he was also put in the bamboo cage - um two cages actually. It was a cage inside a cage. So the deal was that these two guys had to hit each other a lot and somehow escape the bamboo cages. The first one out wins. There was some deal about doors in the cages but I didnt really get it since I was too busy forming a conspiracy to regain the lost remote ( I am the rightful heir since I am the eldest. Thats how it works in fairy tales init? ) and also I was too engrossed in the yuckyness of the aforementioned guys in general to notice anything about the commentary - So sue me.
So anyway the fight began and Kali started bashing poor Batista like hell. I actually felt sorry for him despite his Ewness. According to the idiot doing the commentary, "Kali had been meditating, praying to his evil hindu gods and it seems to be working" Yeah right. EVIL hindu gods??
So after these two hit each other a lot Kali started to climb the cage. He was halfway there when Batista woke up ( he was lying on the ground seemingly blacked out ) and started to race Kali. When he got to the other side of the first cage Kali was already on the outer cage. Why didnt he (Kali) just jump? What an idiot! Anyway this is just what Batista did. Hmm maybe he does have some brain cells after all. So the end result is that poor Batista won even though that idiot Kali could have won.
What the hell is it that makes this so interesting anyway? There were all these people in the audience screaming and jumping up and down and just going crazy. I mean how can anyone find bashing a fellow human being entertaining?? I just dont get it...Melo rahak na.
After listening to my ranting about how gross and uncivilized and violent it is, brother dear patiently explained to me that all pro wrestling matches are fixed so they're fake. Huh? So if they're fake whats the point anyway??
Someone puhleeeze explain this to me....

The Earache that was Nadini ...

Yes! She's out! She's out at last! The gal with the flat voice and the fake accent shall cease to be an earache for ever more - well at least until some 'cassette kada karaya' picks her up to produce some kottu roti music.
Ok look Im not a heartless person. Im sure the girl has some talent.I mean yeah I guess she's a better singer than ME. But does she have enough talent to be in that top 5? Erm I think not. Seriously not.
Yes I too received those chain mails claiming to uncover Nadini's conspiracy to win the Super Star title ; that she's bought SIM cards worth 300,000 and how she can divert votes coz she works at Dialog and so on...I dont know about those stories. People wil always say what they want to say and people will always believe the sensational.
What I DO know is that the girl is NOT a singer. I mean wot the hell was she singing on Saturday? Whats with that fake accent anyway? I couldnt even make out some words of the song! And her song on Sunday! Arghhh! And wots with those weird gestures that accompanied 'Mee Nagaraya'?? WTF? It looked as if she was singing a bloody protest song instead of a sad love song...
Anyway now my only quarrel with Super Star (with Miss FakeAccent gone) is that I have a Mobitel phone from which I cant vote. Bummer!
I did text last week for the very first time, and was living really happy about it when this friend who works for Mobitel told me that 7788 s the Mobitel number you text to get 'Aurudu Nakath'.

Oh well.

Are You a Rain Person?

A convo I had with a friend of mine today triggered me to write this post...I've always been a Rain Person, aka someone who loves rain.
I love watching the rain come down!, walking in the rain, listening to the sound of rain on a stormy night ...But most of all I love to curl up with a hot mug of coffee on a rainy afternoon and sit by my window and just...enjoy the show!!
Anyway today morning was bright and sunny (like in those stupid essays we used to write in 7th grade) and my friend was saying how much she loves sunny days and how much she hates it when it rains!
I was like 'WHAT? how can you not like rain??' (shudder shudder)
This reminds me of some of my other friends who wouldnt put a foot out of the house if its raining. Honestly its just WATER for gods sake!
Am I missing something here???
This brings me to another point: Apparently there are two kinds of people in the office - Those who want ALL the lights on and those who want to stay in the dim forgotten darkness. Some people seem to work in utter darkness! If you switch on light they're like 'SWITCH IT OFF' - as if Bush has declared war on SL. Hmph!
On the other hand I dont like the miss (& mr) Bright Sunshines either. These people want the lights lit up like a Thorana...(Rolls eyes)
Anyway thats all the mindless chatter I can come up with right now....
