Pakathu veetu maami.

Feeling a tad overwhelmed only. Too much is happening, too much is about to happen. My life is going to see more action in May, June and July than it has in the past 2 years. It's slightly terrifying and it's sort of like jam. 

When you spread jam on a slice of bread, you try to spread it evenly so that most of the bread gets covered. Then you eat it and discover a giant lump of jam that never spread and you're like OH HEY where did that come from. Clearly one needs better control over one's butter knives. 

I am about to dive into that lump of jam.

I don't even actually like jam but alas, this metaphor would probably not have worked with cheese. Mmm.


It is time to realise that life has become all about dodging or accepting the TWSS'.

Enlightenment sans Bodhi tree

A while back I was obsessed with one game called Ingress. It's an augmented reality game. Augmented reality, AUGmented reality, it sounds so cool and Matrixy.  So basically I could be staring at a man  contemplatively scratching his bum and chewing paan, while on my phone screen I would be doing complicated-sounding shiz like  creating control fields and hacking a portal that is situated right besides the bum scratcher. I'd be walking around looking into my phone, a window into this fascinating alternate reality, and I'd be sniggering at all the people around me who had no idea of what fasinating blue-green world they were actually living in.

I've previously contemplated what it would be like to live in my phone. It would be interesting, doing all this new age Dungons and Dragons stuff for real but I'd probably miss all the hot chocolate I consume in the course of daily life so I'm going to stay put for a while.

Can friendly portals feed a hungry soul?


What would happen if Neo was the druggie sort and had grabbed both the red pill and the blue pill and downed them together? The nation needs to know.
