Shiny New Life and Pigeon Magnetism

Saturday, July 21, 2007

BlogOwner(BO) is not exaggerating when she says she’s been having the time of her life *ahem* since the past three weeks. No, seriously. Okay so she’s been working like she’s never worked before but she’s also enjoying it all.

She’s also bringing you some pictures of her shiny, new life. Of course, she misses Abhu’s, TC’s and the gang’s antics. Those were the good old days when she’d bring you funny tales about these characters, innit? Aww, she misses them too! And she loves this blog more than ever NOW that she can go back to all those delightful light blue links and relive the hilarious moments one again. This is much needed at times, especially when she’s in the library (lib, henceforth) at 11.45 pm, struggling to find SOME relevant info for her term paper. Talking about the lib, she must let you most intelligent people (like, of course! You’re reading this scholarly blog. BO loves you. Honestly.) know that it happens to be her favourite place on campus. No, really. It’s not that she’s nerdy- which, by the way, she most certainly isn’t- it’s just that the lib is nice and crowded most of the time and BO loves it.

Now, now, there’s a lot to be told. Three weeks seem like forever, in a good way. Oh, it has been ascertained that BO is a pigeon magnet. Window Sill, Bathroom, BO’s room is where another branch of that good old Maternity Home has been set up. It’s doing really well. A couple has already built a nest and the eggs are on the way! BO can’t wait. No really.

Okay, take a look at some pictures.

The upper berth is BO's resting place.

Football match in action. The clouds were more interesting, though.

Most of the batch.

New pigeon! Woo Hoo! His/her mate was around but BO couldn't get both of them AND the nest in the frame.

I know I know, this post isn’t as exciting, fun-filled and oh-I’m-so-happy-I-could-just-fly as BO's usual posts (What did you say? No, come again..?), but please bear with her. Thank you very much.

BO is a huge fan of these. All of them make sense to her but this one makes a LOT of sense. Change the ‘lab’ to ‘lib’.

Oh, by the way, BO’s shiny new friends (the kinds that come in dazzling pink and blue wrappers) (with a red ribbon) include a fish (Piscean for the uninitiated)(Crack, henceforth), a ram (Aries, who, by the way, happens to be fish’s roomie and calls fish ‘her crack’(Ram, henceforth). BO loves Ram. And her crack. Heh.) her own roomies both of whom happen to be librans (imagine a room filled with 3 librans!) and many many others. Okay this paragraph was inserted to somehow mention the ‘crack’ bit.

This has been BO's super favourite song since quite some time. *sigh*. If someone would play and/or sing THAT for her, she'd like, fly or something. Or drift away. Or something in that line. You get the picture, dont' you?

@ abhu- the bunk bed isn't a lot of fun, i assure you. every time i or my fellow bunker turns or rolls around the whole thing creaks like crazy :|

indiegurl said...

hey, cooooool cloud pic!! Also, don't I get credit for intro-ing you to the big, beeyootiful world of phdcomics, eh? EH?

The bunk bed looks pretty, but having spent three years in one, I somehow dont think it'd be terribly comfy :D Is it?

Oh and NLU is FULL of pigeons. I hate the damn birds.

Sneha said...

@ indiegirl- thankya! of course, of course.. had it not been for you and phdcomics, then i'd have perished by nw :D oh jeez, the bunk bed. everytime i turn, it creaks like crazy. it feels like a damn train.

Just be a little careful of the pigeons though. They're slightly dangerous. Pigeon ticks all over the place in Annapurna giving skin eruptions to everyone

Sneha said...

@ anon- oh okay. we'll watch out.. didn't know they were such a menace in mess block.

Hm. You freshers are blogging so prolifically, all this trash about working all the time sounds specious, at best. :-)
