To be a Kite..

I wonder what it would be like to be a kite..A kite riding the winds in the August skies. *Sigh*

You could be a really big one with multi coloured tissue paper and a looong flowing tail flying high in the mighty gale at Galle face, or perhaps a sturdy little yellow kite climbing the skies over a village paddy field.

You could be held by an excited little boy flying his first kite, or a seasoned teenager expertly leading you to a 'kite fight'.

You might fly higher and higher and never break your string. Or you might get caught in a strong gust of wind and be bustled away to a strange new land.
Or you might get caught up in the mango tree next door and the evil next door kid will pull you down and feed you to his dog.

Dont YOU ever wonder what it would mean to be a kite? Just think what fun you might have!

My computer makes me stupid?

Once there was a time that I could write up a 300 odd words of decent prose in no time all. Without spell checkers. And grammar checkers. Or auto completion. Or a google search.
Or a keyboard dammit!

Ah me those were the days!
Now I have reached a point that when I start using an actual pen to actually 'write' my fingers feel weird. And when I make a mistake, instead of cheerfully cutting it off and getting on with it, my brain starts screaming CTRL+Z! CTRL+Z!
As if thats not silly enough, just the other day I was adding a new method to this class , REPEAT a NEW method, and I just typed the first few letters and pressed CTRL+SPACE..waiting for Eclipse to do its auto completion for something that was inside my brain.

Oh the horror of it!..

I wonder if all programmers fall to this sorry state...If all computer users for that matter.

Well it stands to reason doesnt it? If you have this wonderful slave who will take care of how to spell 'sacrilegious' and will find out for you …

Facelift

Since its been a little over than a year since I've first started blogging I feel its high time that I do a little re-decorating.. The old black minima thing felt boring anyway..Soo I'm still playing around with templates (from blogger and other free hacks) and free banners and stuff..So please bear with me for the time being :)
BTW heres a fun site with cool templates that are free to use..
