The last few days have been quite eventful. Happened to go to Melody’s (yes yes, i know….i’m supp to link her URL here -BUT I DONT KNOW HOW!…yet)…. and met quite a few bloggers (and some non-bloggers) there. It was nice to finally be able to put a face to the endless words i read. Melody cooked some fantastic dindin and unfortunately, i wasnt able to savour it….am still kicking myself for that one.

Then, last nite, we decided to hang at Hard rock Cafe, which i believe is a regular hangout of other bloggers like Ideasmith and Sakshi. We ended up having a ball of a time until Ideasmith decided to disappoint us all by leaving….just when we were getting drunk enough to bitch our hearts out. Surprisingly, Sakshi and me agreed that the true value of alcohol is seen, felt and enjoyed (by all concerned)  only after the 5th drink. Unfortunately, Ideasmith’s decision to leave us left us unable to put that to the test yet again. Hopefully, it will not be too long before another opportunity comes up.

Melody – We missed you!

Am heading up to Khandala to spend the long weekend and usher in the new year around a bonfire and a nice barbeque.

 Wish ye all a great new year ahead.

Drive safe and be naughty….:)



Sex – Work or play?

Posted in Uncategorized on December 29, 2006 by pensivelawyer

A man wonders if having sex on the Sabbath is a sin because he is
not sure if sex is work or play. So he goes to a priest and asks for his opinion on this question.

After consulting the bible, the priest says, ” My son, after an exhaustive search, I am positive that sex is work and is therefore not permitted on Sundays.”

The man thinks: ” What does a priest know about sex?” So he goes to a minister, who after all is a married man and experienced in this matter.

He queries the minister and receives the same reply. Sex is work and therefore not for the Sabbath!

Not pleased with the reply, he seeks out the ultimate authority: a man of thousands of years tradition and knowledge. In other words, he goes to a rabbi.

The Rabbi ponders the question, then states , ” My son, sex is
definitely play.” The man replies, “Rabbi, how can you be so sure when so many others tell me sex is work?” The Rabbi softly speaks, “If sex were work, my wife would have the maid do it.”

Merry Christmas

Seasons greetings to ye all.

Christmas used to be a time where we all used to go out in a big group and get tipsy and be silly. Times are different now.

This Christmas, a group of close friends got together at Gayo’s house and we chilled out. Yes, we considered going for midnight mass but that was ruled out as entering the house of God after wine would render us sinners (which we do not deny we are but well, its christmas na!!!)

Anyway, we ended up having a really nice and special christmas. One that will be cherished.

 Merry Christmas!

I did the unimaginable.

After a rather uneventful and borderline drab day (yes, i have those too!) i went to the Ghetto and ordered myself a nice glass of ……hold your breath…….RED WINE!

NOw i can hear ye all snicker and its understandable. In all the years of going to the Ghetto, a red wine is somethin i would never associate with the place. Hell, i’d go for a beer, whisky, vodka…anything else. Just name it…..but WINE!!!!!

What brought this on….i guess its a slow but sure realisation that alcohol is defi gettin a li’l too much. Add to that we hear that a little red wine is good for you in several ways.

Tis the season to be jolly tra la la la la la la la…..

Winding down

And this is one of the good things of being a litigator. You are bound by Court vacations!

The Christmas vacation starts this Friday and work, as we know it, has slowly diminished. The flow has now become a little trickle and its time that i am able to slow down just that little bit and enjoy the smell of the flowers we pass by.

Just drove in to work and was hearing some U2 on the way….

My hands are tied
My body bruised, shes got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose………
And you give yourself away………

Its at moments like this that you become pensive.
