I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks! You are my visitor number,


    In passing

    Happy New Year everyone and all that gooey stuff!

    Good to know I'm not the only one who thinks the earth is spinng a lot faster than it used to which is why 'it feels like it was only yesterday' etc.
    I'm a little sad though.
    It was a good year: Found my second home (ie New Zealand), started a new job and got my own place(can't describe how wonderful it feels to see your own name on the board). As a plus, didn't get any fatter or skinnier than I was last January. Oh and got my wish to bungee jump fulfilled too! YEY! okay so it wasn't off a bridge but trust me it was scary enough.
    Yep. Good times. So since I've been flying high all this time, logic or Murphy will say 2005 is going to be a 'not so good' year . Gng. Even saying 2005 seems weird. Fine. Bring it on :D

    Resolutions for the new year, coz saying 'my resolution for the year is not to make any coz I never keep them' is so cliche, are:
    -Do something new....Salsa classes would be a start
    -Try to turn some 'ideas' into reality even if on an experimental basis
    - Watch all of the Satyajeet Ray movies ever made. My sister was wonderful enough to bring quite a few back from Bangladesh. I'll have to go hunting for the rest.
    -Ofcourse must include this one or I wont't be a woman of the 21st century. Yep, lose enough weight (read 15 pounds), anytime in the next 4 months, to pull off the gorgeous super-thin-mughal-princess-style saree my sis got me. I dont care if I gain it all back, as long as its after I wear the saree :D Has to be a BIG occassion though... yes, its that pretty.
    Maybe one of my few remaining single friends(you know who you are) will find someone great soon and get married....*nudge nudge*. lol.

    Have a great year!

    Well ofcourse it would be great to lose 30 pounds, but I know that'll never happen for me coz I have zero decipline.
    Shomapti is one of three stories of 'Teen Konna' by Ray. I really liked 'Nayok'. Havn't watched 'Debi' 'Ghorey Bairey' and 'Oronner Din Ratri' yet. Will keep you posted.
    Hehe well not much 'exciting' stuff to report here.

    sim u should read the stories that Satyajit Ray based "Teen konna" on (by robindronath who else) before watching it! unlike other adaptations, i swear they compliment each other in interesting ways :) i could figure out a way to send them to you - but i mean ur in BD im sure you can find em.

    Shimi - the peperoni pizza place is called Tandoori Bazaar/Apna Pizza. It's at Eglinton and Terrifox, north on Terrifox - part of a plaza. Goodluck finding it this time :)
