California dreaming

So here I am on my first international trip. Now I can talk about jet lag too :) The first thing I heard was that I'd be totally paralysed if I didnt have the three C's -> Car, cell and credit card. The car part is a problem cause other than a one month car driving lesson on a Maruti I had no other experience ! And phew the speeds at which people drive here !! Well anyway, so its public transportation (what little there is) for me.

I'm not yet sure what to make of the people here. Some are polite, some are rude ...Hmmm I guess people are just the same everywhere. As for being color conscious I think there is a bit of that simmering just below the surface. Now that I have a good gmat score, I have to decide in a few months where I should apply - the US, Europe or Asia..Wish I could go and check out every place and then decide !

Have just got my camera, so look out for some pics next weekend !!

Blink !

Had a two hour conversation and was completely brainwashed. Quit my "secure", "respectable" and "stable" job on Thursday and have wrapped up the move today. Would be taking up my new assignment on the 12th.. ohh well I dont even want to start talkinng of the promises made for the new job ! They sound just too goo dto be true !! Or probably I've just been suckered .. Ahh well good ol time will tell..

Must read this book called "blink" sometime..heard its about taking decisions and deciding about a person in the "blink of an eye" ..would really help me. The other book that influenced this move was "Losing my virginity" by Richard Branson, the flamboyant ceo of the Virgin group.. the crazy risks that he took eventually worked out for him ..so lets see !!

GMAT deadline

D-Day : The 29th of december ...

Deadlines really help ! I dont think any work could ever get done if there no deadlines. Of course by "get done" I also mean "get somewhat done" or "get started". Anyway, any of the three states can only be reached after you have a deadline. After registering for the GMAT I'm finally in the "get started" mode !

The different variety of tests and difficulty levels has me a bit confused. Some of the books are downright dumb and I felt I could crack this without studying. Then I paid a visit to the gmat forums at TestMagic and that was a shocker ! The difficulty level of questions was really high and made me feel that I had a lot to study. And then this feeling was further reinforced after I took the two GMATPrep tests. Lots of work ahead...

Eddie's Google

Naah I havent bought Google yet ;) Although there's this cool site that makes you feel like you do. Try out http://www.logogle.com/ . So here I can type things like "Eddie's Google" and presto a duplicate of google springs up. And of course it works too !

Was trying stuff like this to see if my blog appears on Google search. Sadly it didnt show up when I typed "Immortal Verses" and I tried to help a little by squeezing in "blog" as well ..but no luck !
Help !!!

Tried a few other blogs and hit paydirt with Angel's "Profound Gibberish". The very first link on Google ! Does anybody know how to do this ??? its narcissism day today :)

inconsequential

I started writing some personal stuff for the blog but eventually decided that I wasnt quite ready to share the same in a public forum. Even if it were to a faceless group of people. A close friend of mine used to get really pissed with me for my reluctance to "open up". I guess that problem hasnt gone away yet.

Anyways whats the most inconsequential thing I've heard today ..ahhh of course Cristina Aguleira's video Dirrty was voted the raunchiest by a men's mag recently. I presume the votes were counted before the spanish video of an oil splattered Shakira doing her thing came out. She's called her latest album "oral fixation"..hmmm...
