Weekend Well Spent

So what is a perfect weekend like?? Lemme see.

Saturday – Meet a close friend. Chat, listent to good music, have good food, drink a bit and enjoy. We did aal except the drink bit. We did drink but what we had was the question. A good Goan port wine. This is the good bit. It was followed by the experience of Kaju Feny. Goyal advisory : Don’t have it.

Slept for most part of the day. Discovered that our cook could also make good puris and had a brilliant lunch. Aloo ki subji and puri!! Heavenly!! Next organised stuff on my 120GB HDD (which is a no mean feat!!). My HDD has bad sectors now and needs to be repaired (it is in warranty period) and so I had ot empty it and burn DVDs for the rest of the stuff. Also ripped the Abida Parveen CDs I had bought last week. Awesome music. Specially Tere Liye Nachaya, Ali Maula, and Dum Mast Qalandar (which is always a good experience.)

Sunday – Got the 3rd free servicing done on the bike. It is now 6 months old and I have done 4600 kms on it, which is quite a feat considering my office is only 1 km from my place. Got a haircut. I look presentable now. Also read a lot of Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance – R. Pirsig. Awesome book. OHT sometimes but enjoyable and profound none the less.

So here it is. A near perfect weekend. Would have been complete with a nice movie. I wish I had company.

Quiz Actually!

Please do not blame me. This is the title the PR dept came up with for an intra-company quiz contest.

The elims were held yesterday. 30 questions (provided at the end), 30 minutes, 25 teams and 5 finalists to be chosen. The elims was fun and I hope a sign of things to come. Prepared by Rohan, a very interesting set of typical (though pretty easy ones) quiz questions. Anyways, the good news is that Ojas and me qualified (we were the last ones ;)). Yet another point ot note was that 5 out of the 10 finalists (5 teams) were BITSians. Sandeepan (’96, ELAS, BoB finalist), Ram (’98, HDC), Chaitanya (’98, PCr), Ojas (’01, Soundz), and yours truly.

The finals are slated for Monday Tuesday, and I hope to have loads of fun then.

I am the Devil!!

I had registered for an General Course on IP (DL 101) on WIPO Academy. Guess what my login id is?

The number of the devil himself. Yeah, you heard that right. I am AGoyal666. While I derive immense pleasure from getting the number, I must confess that I am still feel a little wierd about getting the id.

And I am ready to bet that this has to do with August, a little wierd superstition that I have of August not being very good for me (and so far it is proving so true).

Muhahaha!! <evil laugh>
