Studio 60 On the sunset strip September 19, 2006

I watched the Season premiere of “Studio 60 On the sunset strip” last night. This show has been hyped up to be one of the best on TV and NBC is really banking on it to do really, really well to save them from the mess they find themselves in.

I had mixed feelings about the show at the end of the pilot. Yes, ofcourse it was just the pilot and ideally I should reserve my opinions on the show till a few more episodes but hey! I’d loved to be proven wrong and I do wish this show does well. So, what did I like about the show? I liked that it was refreshingly different from the intense CSI:Miami and Greys anatomy kind of shows. I liked the fact that Matthew Perry was in it. I think they kinda built up the first episode for Matthew perry and handed it to him and from now on, all the epsidoes will be revolving around his character. (more…)

The end of the road.. September 18, 2006

So my season of tennis ended in the most undesirable manner. I fell down, scraped my knee and kinda twisted my right ankle. Wonderful. I guess by the time this heals, it’ll get real ugly and cold and ofcourse that means no tennis so this is pretty much it for this year I guess. I had a good run, loads of fun, and wonderful memories. It made me think when I will, if ever play tennis with the guys again. Guess if its meant to be we will.

Tomorrow is the start of week 5 of the semester. Its going pretty fast this semester. Its a shame that all the interesting classes had to come pretty much at the end of the program. Just trying to enjoy my time here, and do the best that I can.

Today was an awkward sunday, was a bit under the weather with the bruised knee I guess. Pretty much accomplished nothing during the day. Watch the season premier of The Amazing Race. I see there was this Indian couple, Vipul and Arti, I think. Well, they were eliminated so the Indian presence on the show was very short lived. I thought they were kind of an embarassment really, the guy didn’t seem strong enough to do much and neither did the girl and so they lost.

Just listened to Oasis’ “Wonderwall”, it sounded pretty good after such a long time. I remember being sick of this song because it was played so much years ago.

Be back with a picture of the day tomorrow! 

First Picture of the day September 16, 2006

 The above is a picture I took yesterday on the way back from work.  They’ve planted these flags across the central part of the campus, they’ve been on there since 9/11. I thought they’d take it off after a day or two but they look pretty nice so I guess someone suggested they keep them on there

So, last night I got back from work and was really looking forward to tennis when I found out my tennis buddies started to play without me. Anyways, so later in the night we went out to meet this new bunch of French students who’ve recently showed up here. They were an interesting bunch, very talkative, I guess people from Paris have a lot to talk about! But they were kinda whiny and its hard to like whiners. I think its a particularly French trait to whine about stuff incessantly. Oh well, it was fun nevertheless.

 Hoping to get some tennis in today. I love Ratatat, just heard “Wildcat” crazy hooks with lots of guitar, you can recognize their music from the minute the first beat drops. Awesome.

Friday is here! September 15, 2006

So I’m here at work on a Friday afternoon. Fridays are kind of dull here at the office, which isn’t really a bad thing actually.  I get off work 5ish and then I’m hoping we can get some tennis in.  This will probably be the last few days we’re going to be able to play any outdoor sport really, so I relish every opportunity now.

Its been a very interesting week for me. I’ve had unexpected friends drop in, surprise phone calls etc. but it didn’t really top last week, the labor day weekend was just awesome. We ate out like 4 nights in a row, started to feel a bit guilty actually. Hoping next week ends on a really sweet note for me, and that I can make a huge blog post about it. Fingers crossed for now.

So here’s another blogging attempt by me. This is probably my third or fourth blog in the past three or four years. I’m honestly hoping that now, with this new blog I can post more frequently and actually gain something positive on a regular basis from the blogging experience.

I’m loving the updates in the WordPress working environment, really different from the time I downloaded and installed WordPress back in ’04. This seems to be much more slicker and user friendly. Lets hope its what keeps me coming back with more blog posts.
