Good ole cal…

Thought would catch up with the blogging when i got back to cal, but thats not going to happen. the cable internet, alas, is gone…no one was using it while i was away. which means this wonky vsnl shit is all i have, in the morning before my mothers office kicks off.
first few days in cal are always so much fun…though this time, of course, the first few days are all i have, since i leave on monday. still, theres nothing quite like sprawling around on my bed and stuffing my face with mukharochak’s finest jhal.
what else? everyone is much the same…broto said hed call me back, daminee is suddenly getting married, ritu is still lurking in a desultory way and rukmini is overworked.
the journey here was fun…strange man on opposite thingie suddenly started impassioned lecture on why i should get married fast…key moment was when he said, iph you marry at old age uith age diphrens, then tha mans shekshual yay uill diminish ebhen tho tha biphe uill habh remaining. then theyar uill be tenshan in marayj. powerful stuff.
yesterday evening, was on the point of leaving for the mouse/duck family residence when suddenly realised i wasnt in delhi any more. hmm. also seem to have not realised that my lecture is today, so now would be a good time to log off and start wondering what on earth im going to say.
will meet two, potentially three, cal bloggers while im here. hm.
i hear ratnabali is in mtvs cyrus v cyrus. will someone please verify?
oh, and i have a new agent. hopefully this time it will lead to something.
