I have never been into those virtual reality simulation games. Never understood how people could get so serious about things that were ..nothing actually.

Until I got tubby.

Tubby is my new hamster. I get to see him about 10 times a day. I can give him food and watch him eat it, which is an incredibly amusing experience. Now, tubby is extraordinary. He spends his time running on his little wheel, watching the surroundings and well.. wiping his face. He wipes his face a lot. I dont know why. And he is also just a piece of code.

I like tubby.

Not everybody who understands and appreciates art can be an artist.

Which is why my blog posts suck.

My love of libraries

There is something in a library that i simply cant resist.

I find it so peaceful to be in midst of columns of books. The smell of old yellowing paper. The shine of new ones and the sharp rustling sound they make.

I even have favorites. Like the IRS one I used to frequent as a kid. And some I hate - like the one at my alma mater - MNIT. That one was designed to discourage readers and reading alike. So boxy.

In contrast, the one at MDI was great. Equipped with wonderful books and more importantly inviting spaces, it was a boon. That was love at first sight. Truly.

However, I feel the most nostalgic about the "book clubs" we used to form during the summer vacations. The neighborhood kids used to pitch in their precious comic books together. Its amazing to think that as 10 year olds we knew the importance of sharing. A skill that most grown ups lack.

Matters of consequence (during the past month)

- tried my hand at the potter's wheel and discovered confirmed my belief that I am a natural at it. :)

- tried the peking duck and jellyfish. Separately. In that order. One of my most memorable food experiences ever. The peking duck had the most unique texture ever (what do u call something thats sbdfkbskdghksdg) and the jelly fish, well lets just say it took a swim in vinegar.
