Blue moon!

Quick, look out of the window! It's a blue moon tonight! Isn't it gorgeous?!?

A blue moon apparently occurs when the same calendar month gets two full moons, the second being called the blue moon.

One of my favourite memories is from when I was a little kid and we'd gone to visit my grandparents. Their house used to overlook a lake. We'd just got back home from town, and the full moon was huge and golden and just hanging low over across the lake. I've never forgotten that scene.

*sigh* I do love full moons.

A touch of irony

In the same week that everyone's getting super excited about the fact that India's probably about get its first female President, which of course shows how cool women are and how progressive India is and has absolutely nothing to do with bloody politics, comes the news that this chap in Haryana has been aborting female foetuses simply because the girl child is unwanted in states like Punjab and Haryana. Interesting, don't you think, how progressive we are?
Hell.

A word of advice...

Dear Zapakmail.com,

If you really do feel that putting a huge billboard with the tagline "Pehelwan ban gaya budhiman" is the best way to promote your services, that's your opinion. But don't you think the Rubik's Cube used in such an advertisement should at least be solved?
