I wish I locate an igloo at baazee.com , to trade my position in chennai with the cool-environs of Antarctica or the alps ,as the mercury dips to unmanageable levels to compete with Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, to go on to prove that Chennai can do better !!!
So I hardly have any appointments outside in this blazing sun, resigning myself to sleeping, reading and idiot-box¡¦ing ( watching TV). I have set upon myself a few quizzical tasks and at the same time master strousstrups invention ( c++) .
I currently am contemplating on a short getaway to ooty to beat the heat , but I guess I would have to miss KNPH on setmax at 9 pm and a couple of deciding onedayers on june 1st and 2nd. India with its current form does not inspire me so much to watch them especially after their meek surrender early this morning ( 237/7 chasing 408).
My collections of quiz questions are going bananas with the amount I have collected over a period of time(!!!!). so all¡¦s well before july for my sharpening my quizzical instincts .
