My friends are friends

I don't know if any of my dear readers have ever tried to clap for 5 minutes non-stop. It hurts your palms - at least my experience says so. As a part of the Christmas Program, for which I was the tutor, I took my students to the ballet - "Le Corsaire". The ballet was simply superb and it has totally changed my opinion about ballet/opera/etc.

There were a minimum of 60 performers on the stage and about 1200 (supposedly elegant/elite) people watching the performance. It was awesome and the hall was roaring with claps for at least 5 minutes. :)

Whenever you get a chance, do go for such a thing - at least once. [Boys: Take your girl-friend with you. Girls: If your boyfriend doesn't, then dump him].

This was just one of the umpteen wonderful things which happened in my life during the past few days. It would take hours before I could write everything here and I don't intend to bore you with all those details. And if I am to write the unconventional thoughts which occurred to me during my absence, then it would take ages to write them all.  :)

Anyway there is one little thing I want to write. Just like Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) says in "You've got mail", I feel slightly bad after a tit-for-tat reply to someone - even if that person earned it from me. [Apparently, I am usually good at these tit-for-tats]

And this happened during the Xmas celebration of the Kerala-Community in Munich.

I had never spoken with her earlier. So it was the first time ever conversation and I was decently gentlemanly. Well, She tried to insult me and what I said was a little over board and she just deserved it.

At that time I felt that a larger audience would have been nicer. The nasty version of me. ;)

I got to leave. My friend is coming home and I had promised "Blueberry pancakes" - let me go make them! Yummy!!!!!!!!! :)

Signing off, Sands.

PS: It's been sometime since I blogged the last time. Lack of mobility, lack of access to Internet etc. are the reasons for my absence. Well, now I am back - just to give some updates and leave soon. I shall be back with more power on my fingertips - later.

PPS: Almost forgot to tell about the title - I love to introduce my friends to each other. If they are friends among themselves too, then life becomes really good, right? This happened with 3-4 friends of mine and I am so happy about it.
