Tuesday Morning Clatter

Since I found out that randomness is what I am best at, I would stick to it. Just for the sake that something goes up on this blog. Some bits and pieces of what I have been noticing all around me.

1. People who travel abroad suddenly become extremely active on Facebook and Twitter, which at least 3-4 posts daily.I am talking about people who hardly post anything regularly otherwise. Some directly put up statuses like - Reached San Francisco or Landed in Amsterdam. Others try to add an element of subtlety by saying things like - Never imagined that I would  have to pay $25 for a haircut. Some others suddenly start missing the pot holes and cattle in India. (Don't get me wrong, I am not being judgmental. As I said, this is just an observation).

2. If you follow any show that is aired first in America and then gets aired in India, you should stay away from any sort of social networking until it gets telecasted. If you happen to open Facebook or Twitter, you would invariably find comments and discussions that will spoil the fun of the much awaited finale of American Idol  . Folks, have some consideration for people living on the other side of the globe.

3. My hunt for full fat milk in the super market was met with wired reaction. One guy got me no-fat milk and other one looked at me as if I asked for his bank balance. Well, how will I make paneer if its so difficult to find full fat milk?

4. People don't talk to each other on train journeys anymore. Everyone is hooked to their iPhone, BB, iPod or laptop.

5. A clean house solves half the problems in life. Seriously. Try it if you don't believe it. Okay, I was exaggerating, but it at least makes you happy, relaxed and calm.

Until next time!
