    Acco to him, life is only suffering, you must abstain from pleasant moments, there is no such thing as a good moment. Ultimately, the bacteria will win.

    Anyway, i had a nice chest and shoulder workout today. Followed it up with 4 cashews and a few spoons of leftover rice and daal. (vanioman will disapprove but currently i am off dairy, wheat and various other common allergens to see what all is causing my GI issues.)

    Off for dinner. And then to see the rest of Ball of Fire.

    A great song that was featured in an entertaining 2005 French Film "Les Amants Reguliers" ("Regular Lovers") and which featured the achingly beautiful French actress Clotilde Hesme which takes place during the 1968 student and trade union riots in Paris. One of the more interesting scenes takes place in '69 after the fires have died down with the would-be ' revolutionaries' energetically dancing to The Kink's gem "This Time Tomorrow" showcasing the exquisite Mlle. Hesme at the begining and at the 0:35 sec. mark......after which some not-so-hot blonde later starts rockin her 'hogans' during the dance sequence:

    Thanks for the link, DP! That was another pleasant 3 moments watching and listening but I'm still enjoying the imagery I created in my mind of sureshs in a sari.

    You have got me wondering as to whether 'Poobah' is a synonym of eunuch?

    Just watch some Gilbert & Sullivan or a few episodes of "The Flintstones" for the pleasure of understanding many of us have encountered for centuries sureshsian style characters with a bit of overinflated airs about themselves.

    You have to hand it to Sureshs, he would make for a truly splendid pantomime Aunty.


    I can just hear Poobah telling the children that Nadal is the GOAT, oh no he's not shout the kids, oh yes he is shouts Poobah.....

    You both are giving me visions of the Indian version of Mrs Doubtfire, Chachi 420. I am thinking of sureshs playing that role :D

    sureshs resembles more Al Delvecchio, the stepfather of Chachi Arcola from "Happy Days" and "Joanie Loves Chachi". You're right though...sureshs as a Bollywood Mrs. Doubtfire would be a classic!

    Clearly I'm missing something here between you two. Are we talking idol worship or target practice?

    Blindfolded and highly intoxicated, I could not miss that target so "we're not talking practice"!

    It is truly idol worship because even with daily practice, I am laps behind the Grand Poobah in the fine art of Trollery!

    Finally, after a long wait, and another month's delay, i finally got a new car yesterday.

    The final process was a tad embarrassing....

    The Honda guys got a cake in the Customer's Lounge, made us cut it, and took photographs. Then they had a ceremony at the car, more photographs, and popping some kind of thing that had shining paper bits in it. They framed the pic immediately and gave it to us. It was quite unexpected.

    Sadly, the whole experience was tainted by the car-wiping guys who swarmed the car after I gave the first one a big tip. Left a bad taste.

    Had some chuckles reading all of carsomyr's comments in the Which Half is Rafa in thread. Sadly that thread got nuked a while back.

    sureshs is feverishly working on an alibi, not for the murder but for attempted desecration of the building (too fat to complete the 100m dash...LOL!)

    Looks like Newman from "Seinfeld". "Hello, sureshs!" Would be Jerry's greeting if the Grand Poobah were to appear at his door.

    This is the unpleasant ending of sureshs attempting a nonsureshsian, highly Djokovician split move after passing nimble Nadal at the net.

    I've forgotten where we were discussing the Mt. Rushmore of Trollery...please refresh my failing memory. That would be a nice artistic project for one of our creative types here...busts of sureshs and the banned Gang of Three. The easy ones would be the Grand Poobah and MiniPad, thanks to the ubiquitous gif and the latter's addiction to selfies. I probably wouldn't know the other two if they standing next to me until one patted me on the back and then pulled me out of the way of the other's attempt at assault.

    If Fed reaches the RG semis, I'll go for a 1h:45m run, if he reaches the final, I'll do 2 hours. Otherwise, it'll just be 90 minutes.





    Temps are in the 40's here (Celsius) btw. 43C today (about 110F I think).

    I was unexpectedly treated to a delicious dinner (beef/rice/beans) by my landlord last night.

    Well, I am afraid the Anglosaxon cultural references are lost on me, but the dinner was delicious, especially the beef and beans part (the rice was okay). I was really appreciative of the beef as the choice of meat, because there seems to be a propensity lately to push chicken everywhere (I guess the poultry import bans imposed on the U.S. in the aftermath of the bird flu epidemic are pushing the prices down domestically).

    You may be right. The thing about the forum is the diversity of the participant pool (generation/race/class/ethnicity/location and what not), so it’s safest to assume as little as possible in the discourse and take baby steps forward instead. To that end, may I ask what you mean by “watch list” here?

    Things to catch up on via your choice of platforms for viewing various media...Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, even TV Land all make it easy to broaden the horizons, both currently and back to previous eras, whether weak or strong.

    Yesterday, it was cloudy, overcast, heavy cool winds. Had a nice run, with legs still a bit tight from the previous days leg workout.

    It rained after my run. Nice respite from the regular 110F plus evenings.

    Yesterday had a nice 40 minute run. First round was quite stifling, no breeze at all, and about 38C (100F). Second lap was nice due to the strong breeze.

    Today, on my way back from the park (just a walk, Sundays are off for me), two black stray pups came over to me and lay down at my feet. Two beautiful females. Played with them for a while, then they followed me ... I totally forgot to take a pic of them.

    We had heavy rain today but early in the day...what a treat to work outside in the 80F range instead of 95+F! I still was drenched in sweat after a couple of long rides but cool sweat that kept me comfortable. Met nice people all evening!

    Yesterday, on my way back from the gym, coming through the park where i run, i met these 2 dogs i often see, a small mother and her daughter (sort of golden in color). They spend most of their time wrestling and nipping each other.

    Today, i gave them a look, and they both followed me. I remembered to take some pics, although i did not get them wrestling. I must upload them today. Another end of the park also has a litter. Whenever i run by, and whistle to them, some of them come chasing me. And they are reaaaally small.

    The other day while running, a peacock (peahen rather) crossed my path. Now that happens quite often, but this time there were 2 tiny chicks walking just behind her. Amazing sight.

    Having quite a few pleasant moments reading the exchanges on this old page. People were writing Fed off in 2010.

    Came across @P_Agony too. Names of posters one has completely forgotten. Wonder what happens to banned poasters.

    P_Agony would describe the unpleasant early morning warning signs of a STD, no?

    Another unpleasant moment I wouldn't want to experience is being second in line to sureshs for using the porcelain throne located at the top of the STH!:eek:
