Juliet, Naked : Nick Hornby

Today, I intend to break my word and also to trick you. But before that, I shall offer you something for a bit of celebration. You may have either some chocolate cake : the German way, Or some Payasam/Kheer: the Indian way or BOTH: be international! :) [Once there was an inside joke about chocolate cake(s)]

Breaking my word: because this post is no book-review as promised. Something else came up.

I passed the German drivers’ license test. The examiner even said that the second half of the 45 minute test was really good. I think, I have all the reasons to gloat, because I managed this with just 8 driving lessons. It is heard to be a not so easy thing to get. And DAMN expensive too. I am practically on top of the world.

You know what? It is a very painful thing to be (almost) on top of the world and missing her (more because of the happy moment). The mended heart feels crushed, and it hurts deep inside even when I should be euphoric. Had the story been different, I’d simply have rented a car and driven to her the very next moment I get the license in hand.

Well, I’ll get over it, sometime. :)

I wanted to write about some paradigm shifts in thought; my arguments against philosophy in general; and also my new take on stupidity. Later..!


Apparently, today I wouldn’t be in a mood to work (too excited). Will catch up with some sleep; Learn some songs to be performed tomorrow on stage (for the Kerala community Onam celebration).

And will read “Juliet, Naked” – the latest novel by Nick Hornby. Bought it yesterday mostly ‘just like that’. I finished about 60 pages last night itself.

Well, that was the tricking part. Who wouldn’t want to read a post with “Naked” in the title! ;)

Signing off, Sands.
