Sunday Musings

Sunday’s the most awaited day of the week and as it crawls to an end, the sceptre of the coming Monday makes one cringe in agony! It feels as if the weekend has flitted by so quickly that it might have never existed. Well, it would’ve registered some sorta impact if there were some partying or going-outs or general merriment. Alas, sleeping till high-noon doesn’t help matters…just makes the day look so short!

A good part of the last hour or so was whiled in away in choosing a successor to the much-used digg theme on this blog. After Unsleepable, this was my most-used theme and it should be followed up by something just as good. Not that there was any necessity for a theme change, but few of my friends were complaining about how slowly the entire site loaded or how ungainly the three-columned-page looked  on smaller monitors! So a two-column theme had to be chosen….journalist was too simple and the regulars like k-2 & regulus were very ubiquitous! Anyways, ’twas left to the flip of the coin and hence we see the pool theme upon this blog. The header image had come pre-packaged with moi Vista.

Sat/Sun  is also the time for some EPL action and it was heartening to see Chelsea and Manchester United keep up their winning ways. The blues beat Sunderland 2-0 whilst the reds handed bottom-placed Derby a 4-1 dressing down. Liverpool meanwhile lost their away match to Reading 3-1. Arsenal are still at the top of the leaderboard with a game in hand.

There’s a new Biryani place in  town called something like Central Biryani Paradise. I was appraised about it by Smack from the FreeHyderabad Forums and he had high praises for it. Haven’t been able to take out time for that even though its pretty nearby! This procrastination will someday beat the cr*p outta me!!!

I have downloaded & installed the newly-released Yahoo Messenger for Vista – preview version i.e. a pre-beta release and at first sight, it looks very shiny and nifty with its color schemes, transparent aero-esque borders and stylish menus and views. It hogs up quite a bit of memory though! And it repeatedly disregards my preference for invisible sign-in! Will write down in-detail someday else.

Something else that I have been doing when I am getting bored is browsing through Wikipedia! Over the past few days, I have reading all sorta stuff – Sher Shah Suri, Tippu Sultan, Kansas Highways, Port, Bridge (the game), Holocaust, Napoleon, Termites, Crustaceans and a whole other bunch of stuff that I don’t even remember now! But I must be beware: a little knowledge is dangerous!
