How Could She Kill Him!!

How could JKR have killed such an important character in the Half Blood Prince? I mean he was not such an important character in many of the previous books, but I am sure in the 7th book that would have made a surprise element and imagine reading through an interesting duel between Voldemort and him. Of course Voldemort would have killed him anyway then, but just imagine what plot that could have brewed. She has lost an immense opportunity for herself I'd say.

But at least I am happy for Ron - he need not be afraid again of him, and for his sons and daughters - at least they can eat whatever and indeed whoever they want now. I hope one of them succeeds in eating Percy. Or maybe some death eater if they can take a bit of Felix Felicis. Or maybe even Harry Potter or Voldemort if they gulp the entire bottle.

Don't You Just Hate Yourself ...

... when you know that you have been cheated, and moreover you know that you could very well have avoided that if it wan't for the utter carelessness from your part. That's what happened to me over the weekend.

I go to fill some gas in my bike, ok. There are two guys at the filling station, one with the cash and other with nozzle. The one with cash distracts me. Now I know he's doing that, because he's too obvious. But I don't care to look at the starting zero. And yes, the other guy hasn't reset it to zero. He starts from 50 and I get only 50 bucks worth. I realize it immediately when I start my bike. But the guy says (I know why he is smirking) that he has filled in whatever I paid for and I should get the fuel indicator checked. The vehicles behind me are honking now and because I have to rush for other appointment, I don't argue much. Just cursing myself I leave it.

I can't, can't, can't and just can't forgive myself for such stupidity. Maybe the world isn't fair enough to assume things. Or maybe I was being too thick.

Abe Chirkut Harry Potter ...

nku bhai: Just to remind you that I have preordered your new book and you better hope that it stands upto my expectations. If not, I hope you have a good insurance.
Harry Potter: Why?
nku bhai: Have you heard of one Mr Salman Khan lately? He is apun ka gaonwala.

Ok, jokes apart, I am as anxious as you for the Half Blood Prince. I hope the website delivers me the first copy on the same day.

And as long as I am dreaming, I would like a pony.

Fights 12 Teeth

"Fights 12 teeth and gums problem", reads a carton of a toothpaste on one of the shelf in Food World.

"What about other teeth I have?", my friend's complaint.

You tell me, how do I explain this to him?

If this lady can be a datagridgirl, then why can't I be a pointerboy?

Notwithstanding the fact that, the amount of stuff I know about the pointers might be same as the amount of stuff this datagridgirl does not know about the datagrid.

Albeit the weather out here is awesome and it is quite luring you to get on the roads, the actual experience once you get there is a letdown. That's what happens everytime I take my bike out and travel approximately 20 km to my office in all dust, smoke, exhaust, noise and utter chaos.

My friend dis here has a solution to all this. He says, why go 'out' in the first place? He is more like Hobbes, you see. At least like this Hobbes: {click to enlarge}

PJ of the Afternoon

Q: Why are Indian husbands "Silver" while their European and American counterparts "Gold"?

A: Because of their wives.

E: Indian wives call their husbands "Aey jee", while European and American wives call thier husbands "Hey (h silent) you".

PS: If you still don't get it, imagine you are a wife (I said just imagine) and call out your husband as explained above. Still no? Recollect your periodic chart then. Now if don't know what is that, then I am sorry, can't help you.
