Life’s been fun. Returned from my recent trip to Jeddah with an original Season 3 DVD box of ‘Charles in Charge’ a serial I used to watch while in school. It’s a bit predictable but it’s a nice soundtrack and brings back memories.
Attended a friends housewarming over the weekend – I love the house. It has a pool table in the centre, a mini swimming pool in the back lawn, one of those Gujrati swings facing the front lawn, a little aquarium as you enter through the main door, a miniature golf thingy (course??) 3 bedrooms and a top floor. A little far from the rest of the world though. It brought back great memories of the Villa I was living in until last year. All it needs is a little Shisha bar and it would be perfect.
Sumeet was kind enough to download a very large game for me – Medieval 2:Total War. Its amazing so far. Similar to its predecessor Rome: Total War but with quite a few variations which make it extremely engrossing, such as building alliances with various factions by marrying off my princesses to them, joining Holy Crusades, assasinating Inquisitors, Heretics ,enemy merchants, even the Pope if he excommunicates you . Unfortunately it a wee bit too good for my humble little laptop ( or rather my blasted graphics card). Its a good thing I havent yet bought the latest in the series Empire:Total War
I watched an episode of Californication which involved the hero getting a vasectomy. Decided this is not my cup of tea and switched to Everybody Loves Raymond. Turns out good ole Ray is also out to get a vasectomy. As one girl cheekily put it…”Maybe god’s trying to tell you something”
KK told me he loved ‘Rome’ which pleased me immensely. I also got Sharon to like ‘Sarah Connor Chronicles’ and she likes that as well. Ive not yet figured why I cant be bothered about what people might think of me, but I get all excited when people like stuff I like.
Watched Wolverine and Loved it. Hoping to watch Star Trek this week.
Switched over from Rock climbing to Swimming in part becuase i wanted to take a break and approach it at a later point. Although I am arguably in better shape than I was last year around this time , (based on the number of laps i can do) it doesnt yet show :)
After all the hemming and hawing, all the delays around my trip, its all put into place - I should be flying out end of this week.
And with that ends another glorious blog entry.
Coming up soon : South America : The Planning begins here!
