Just posting an entry
Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: I Need You (Foreigner)
Topic: Friends

Well, since I hadn't posted here in a long time, thought I would just put an entry. My life seem to be existing around my work and going to cinema with Tina.

I think I've watched a lot of movies lately ... nearly every single one that has been out. I watched Bridge to Terabithia yesterday ... it was sad (it was like My Girl sad - that's a huge hint there!).

Anyway, Jenny and I are supposed to be going to cinema one Sunday ... hopefully, I don't have to watch back something that I've already seen, but it seems likely, but don't mind so much, because just like the social aspect of doing it ... just trying to build my network of friends - slowly but surely :).

Not sure what I'll be up to this weekend, it seems to be raining all this week although last week the weather was quite brilliant. I have a penchant for drives at the morning, and also the feeling of going to areas in the UK where I've never been before namely the Peak and the Lake district although I have a longing to go to the Shetland islands as well. And I've been looking at camping as a possibility since it is so cheap and allows me some time to relax between one driving day to the next. Really need someone else who can drive to go along with me, so we can share the driving!

Hung out with Tina yesterday ... as usual :)
Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: Charlie Brown (The Coasters)
Topic: Friends

Had to go up to the city centre yesterday since I needed to exchange a bra in Marks and Spencer (too big :D) ... so, when Tina wrote me and suggested a movie and dinner this week .. I said why not do it today. Unfortunately, after we went to M&S and then to the Sainsbury for groceries we were too tired (or lazy) to go to the cinema. Besides, there were only two movies that Tina could have seen the Host or the new 007 movie (she's seen everything else) .. so, decided to go to her home instead where she made celery (my favorite and was particularly delicious yesterday since we added in peanuts - well she added it in ... I just stood by and watch :D).

I also bought a 600g of honey roasted peanuts in Iceland .. well after weeks of futilely looking in Sainsbury for this, I finally found it in Iceland and it was on sale at 2 pounds, so I couldn't give that up ... no matter how big it was (besides gave some to Tina ... but barely broke the neck of the tin! - hopefully could eat all out).

Anyway, Mark (Tina's housemate) asked us if we wanted to watch some DVDs and he had "There's Something About Mary", and since Tina and I have heard of it so much but have never seen it we decided we had to watch it - and it was quite funny. So, we watched it on her laptop and then I came home, talked to Amalia a bit on the internet.

Filling in the evenings ....
Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: Dekho Dekho Janam (Ishq)
Topic: Friends

Well, yesterday morning when I went to the fridge ... I realised I didn't have milk ... what horror!! I forgot to do grocery shopping over the weekend :).

Saturday wasted my day by watching WI vs England in the Champions Trophy ... which we lost (that's why it was a waste! but we're in the semi-finals - we play SA on Thursday - shoots got a supervision that day - but early in the morning, so can finish that up and probably go home :D) - and I also briefly popped up to the church for the fairtrade craft fair thingy in the church (took about 1/2 hr). And on Sunday after Church, went over to Tina's and had lunch and then went with her and Jitse to cinema (Jitse got the cineworld card that day too!) to watch "A Good Year" with Russell Crowe, which was quite good. I enjoyed that film.

The film, however, that all three of us are looking forward to watching is Borat - it opens on Thursday ... I think it might be full, so may have to watch it later - I don't like full cinemas. Borat looks to be good satire ... and I love satirical films (that reminds me ... I want to get "Robin Hood - Men in Tights" DVD - my best satire!).

Anyway, yesterday I decided to go up to the Sainsbury (I really should have gone to the Tesco's instead - since I need to fill up petrol, get oil and brakes fluid - but didn't feel like it), so, called up Tina and we decided to go up at 3:30 (she got mad at me - because was late to meet her in the car park :D - had to go to the loo :P) - and after Sainsbury we went back to her place and cooked dinner for us and Jitse. Jitse thought we were probably in the cinema so he went straight up to the cinema (because Tina missed a call - and whenever she doesn't answer a call and she is with me - 9 out of 10 times - we're in cinema - so he had good reason to believe that) - but then he had to walk all the way back. But we cooked a lot of stuff (well I chopped stuff up - Tina cooked - which I think is the better thing :) - that is leave the cooking to Tina). 

There were egg noodles that Tina decided to cook a Thai way and a Chinese way (and Jitse and I to make sure we stay on her good side insisted that the Chinese way tasted much better). She also made asparagus and also prawns with sweetpeppers and peanuts (which tasted really good!).

Just updating my blog
Mood:  hug me
Now Playing: In the Flesh (Blondie)
Topic: Friends
Pradyot is harassing me to update this blog again - but I've been more interesting in updating my research blog lately.

I think I might be coming down with something since I don't feel too right ... and now I've got to walk home in the cold ... and it is really dark and miserable looking because it is cloudy and we have light fog I think.

Had a driving lesson this morning which went terrible :) ... I was just not into it ... hope it goes better tomorrow ... hope I feel better tomorrow ... anyway, going to wrap up warmly now and go home.

My photoalbum
Mood:  chatty
Now Playing: I'll remember (Madonna)
Topic: Friends
So, last weekend ... I think it was Monday ... Pradyot really told me I had absolutely no reason to put up menstrual cycles on my blog .... somethings should just be kept personal according to him ... my excuse was that since I thought about it ... I saw no reason why not to write about it. I don't think he saw my same point of view.

Anyway, that is somewhat not on the topic that I wanted to speak about ... he prodded (yes prod!) to put up some pics on the net ... so, decided to create a photoalbum using the tripod facility ... and it is really good ... just placed about 4 for him (including the snake!!). I was supposed to put up the reading pics when I went to the OU but completely forgot. But however, something better happened, I was able to download pictures from the digital camera because I found a USB download cable on Rebecca's desk (I think she uses it for her PDA) - so was able to download pics which Tina and I took on Sunday. So, got them up for Mum and Amalia to see yesterday (yet to tell Pradyot I've added 4 additional - but I'm sure he'll read this and go find it himself :P), and mum told me I did look wide in the top (but I like the top - so still going to wear it!). Anyway, my precious photoalbum is up and living.

Meeting Frank on Saturday
Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: What's Love Got to Do with It (Tina Turner)
Topic: Friends
Well, after many weeks (many weeks) ... I finally came around to writing Frank ... so, we decided to do what we promise to do since couple months now ... go for that walk along a river. It always seems when I was free he was not and vice versa ... because I was going to Trinidad (that happened twice!) and then had my exams etc ... he then had some writing to get done and then had to go India etc.

But Saturday we are meeting, we are meeting at Willen Lake. He likes to walk ... so, probably he would be the perfect person to convince to walk around the North and South Lakes ... I think for the most they must be two miles around ... so, hopefully it does not rain (who I am kidding - this is England!) - I mean I hope it doesn't rain plenty. Well, if our walk around the Lake finishes quickly ... I'm thinking of walking him over to Campbell Park ... hopefully he still has the stamina :D ... but, I think I'll finally have someone who actually enjoys walking to walk with me! Oh he might actually know the names of the trees and insects etc. so, I'll make sure and pick his brain ... oh wait ... I think if I remember carefully (I wonder if it was him I was talking to) ... he said he just like looking at the trees but he doesn't know the names either ... hope it wasn't him ... cause I really want to know the difference between elm and maple and whatever else these temperate trees are called.

Went to Reading!
Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: Keep Coming Back (Richard Marx)
Topic: Friends
So, I went to Reading on Saturday to see Bhaleka and Karol. That was fun - but the day was hot ... so, when we walked around we got really tired - I've never sweat like that in England before. We were all joking that we were praying for the sun but we didn't want it that forcefully.

Yesterday, was also hot but I think better than it was on Saturday - today is suppose to be cooling down - thankfully!

I was really tired when I came back from Reading - because I walked all day - and I got impatient waiting for the bus so decided to walk home - it was only 30 mins walk - but the hot sun didn't make it so pleasant - I was positively drained when I reached home - so when I reached home all I did was reheat some food (chicken and dhalpouri - the last one *sob* *sob*) and then fell straight into bed.

Reading was a nice town - I think Bhaleka and Karol really like it - as with all English towns it is absolutely nothing like Milton Keynes. Reading is a bit like Oxford but without the very old buildings - and it is a nice pleasant place - since it has some countryside. But the train ride to Reading - there wasn't any countryside to see - it was a very boring train trip from Paddington to there - unlike when I'm going from MK to London - I always love looking at the countryside. I still have not seen the yellow/cream castle (or whatever it was) that I saw the time I was coming from dropping Ritch and Amalia at Heathrow - got to find out if that was a figment of my imagination.

That reminds me, both when I was going to London from MK and going back to MK from London, on Virgin, the a/c was not working on the train. In the morning it was ok - since the place was still cool - but in the evening - it was unbearable - there was one guy opposite me who was sweating bucket-a-drop - I mean my thermoregulation was pretty ok - no sweating - but it was hot. People were complaining bitterly - and from the canteen person on the train - people found out that the a/c was not working on the train -there was no apology from the train operators by the way for the a/c not working. But it seemed rather strange to me that both trains I came in the a/c will not be working (because they were two different trains - I remember the different seating!) Well ... one guy came along and was complaining about the heat in the train and was saying that in the "first class section was like a freezer". Well, that obviously built some feelings of resentment (I can very well at this point understand the French revolution!). I have a feeling that they weren't using a/c in the economy section just to bump up sales at their canteen - because everyone was rushing to get some cold drink (not me - I was coming off in 35 mins - felt sorry for those persons who had the longer journey!). I think with enough complaints, the a/c began to slightly work (not enough to cool you down but to ease the temp. a bit - because the guy opposite me was still producing rivulets - and people were still rushing for drinks). Then some people came in from a carriage behind us and went that our carriage was at least 10 degrees cooler than theirs and they were moving forward in hopes of finding a cooler carriage. Well, during that time the train pulled up in Milton Keynes, and when I got off there were people complaining to the operators about the heat - and there were some people in my carriage grumbling that they should have been given the option to choose if they would like to be on this train without a/c.

Well ... next time I'm going with Silverlink - not me and Virgin trains again ... I know it is faster and supposingly more comfortable seating - but I kind of prefer Silverlink open space seating - and there is much larger windows so I can look out and see if I can find my castle - I don't know if there is a/c on the train - but I know there are windows that can be opened - so, I'm sure I'll not suffocate and die of heat. Plus, I don't mind when Silverlink stops at every station, since the countryside is so beautiful, you always see something nice and new - wouldn't take the same same option from Paddington to Reading - because it is really boring - just a couple of old buildings.

Angela left yesterday
Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: Mother (Donna Lewis)
Topic: Friends
Well, Angela left yesterday together with her mother to go back to Nigeria. The house is going to be quite empty now ... well, there is still Kim, Jessica and Judith. Judith will be leaving soon to go back to Oxford unless she finds a summer job here in MK. Its going to be strange without Angela around, but Jessica might replace her alright ... Judith is a bit too young ... so, not sure how conversation can hold up for very long, but Jessica seems sensiblish enough ... so, companionship and evening chats should be ok. Kim is usually busy with her work - so mightn't have time to really talk to her much. Anyway, Angela's mum is coming back in 3 weeks. These 3 weeks before her return will be a reprieve. She is a stickler for things being exacting so at times it grates on my nerves. Anyway, the house will soon be sold ... supposingly, and I'll have to look for alternative accommodation - not sure where I'll go as yet - should move out by August 1st, but I'm going home in July - so, not sure how that is going to work out - so, I think I have to look for a place before I leave ...because I think when I come back it will be too short of a time to find somewhere.
