Didn't get much sleep last night. So, this morning, I was walking around sleepily with eyes half shut, bearing a striking resemblance to the zombies in the trailer of George E Romero's Land of the Dead. I stumbled into the shower with a strong premonition of disaster which unfortunately proved right. I banged my head against a wall. Thankfully the wall didn't break :) .

My skull must be extremely thick. By that I'm not admitting to being dumb. The impervious nature of my crown extends only to tangible objects. My head has made forceful contact with every wall in my house (floor included, but not the ceilings) atleast once but I'm yet to suffer a skull fracture.

In fact, today's unfortunate incident resulted in the worst head injury I've ever suffered. It left me completely disoriented, the kind of thing some people fake to avoid talking to me when we meet. I think I also came perilously close to falling into the familiar hindi movie "Main kaun hoon? Main kahan hoon?" ritual. Close, but not quite close enough. Govinda must be disappointed.

I bunked only 4 out of 27 classes in college last week. Thats a new record for me. And today I think I missed college. I must be growing attached to the place. Now I find it hard to go through the morning without marvadis around. No maadu paan chewers, no maadu smokers trading cigarettes, no maadu punks swearing in maadu, no maadus watching maadu porn, none of the hooting and catcalling that I've grown so accustomed to seeing everyday in class. The morning was so drab.

The rest of the day took my boredom to an unsurmountable level. I was so bored, I wrote a nonsense rhyme..

The river was flowing, flowing, flowing
I was rowing, rowing, rowing
A breeze was blowing, blowing, blowing
It was snowing, snowing, snowing
The crows were crowing, crowing, crowing
A farmer was hoeing, hoeing, hoeing
Another was sowing, sowing, sowing
Kids were throwing, throwing, throwing
Stones and showing, showing, showing
Me a Boeing, Boeing, Boeing
That was going, going, going
Where? I'm not knowing, knowing, knowing
The darkness was growing, growing, growing
The moon was glowing, glowing, glowing
My boat was slowing, slowing, slowing
The river was flowing, flowing, flowing...


Money talks and bullshit walks.

The poetry was, to say the least, innovative.
"Me a Boeing, Boeing, Boeing
That was going, going, going
Where? I'm not knowing, knowing, knowing"

Hehe!
