An Ogre & a Hobbit

Finally did what I wanted do for sometime. Namely watch Shrek & buy "The Hobbit". I had watched Shrek 2 & wanted to find the first one, but has been unlucky until last Friday. Finally it came to my favorite DVD shop in a collection including Toy Story Series. It was as expected. Which is pretty damn good.

And then on Saturday I found The Hobbit which has been eluding me since I finished reading the LOTR trilogy. I was looking for Judas Unchanged by Peter F Hamilton ( Having read the first one of the commonwealth series Pandora’s Star ) but instead found Hobbit. Still I’m reading it so I can’t say much about it other than it is written in quite a different style to LOTR. Hobbit was initially intended for children & it follows a story telling theme. LOTR was written more in line with conventional methods while Hobbit tends to be funny quite often. It is proving to be an enjoyable read & I’m only halfway through. Can’t wait to go back home & finish it!

Trough, after a peak

I'm not happy. Not depressed, but not in a good spirit either. Last few weeks were very good. Everything was moving smoothly & now....... That's the problem, it not bad, but it doesn't feel right. She is not in good terms with me (an argument gone sore). And it was for something as insignificant as a political meeting. Aaaahhhhhhhhhh! She don't like politics & I kind of more politically aware. And I stopped on my way from work to watch a political meeting held in faour of one of the presidential candidates & she thinks its bullocks. I should not have argued, since it was not a one either one of us going to win. Hindsight, what a useless thing.

And Sri Lankan team has gone & got thrashed by Indian's by a huge margin! To think that I stayed home to watch it! Infuriating! Anyway just glad that I didn't get a day off solely to watch the match. Went for a job interview in the morining & I think I did ok. Since my former boss is there it should workout.

Anyway wish this unhappiness would go away as soon as possible.

Super Farce

The end of Super Farce (or Super Test if U like it that way). The 6 Day Test Cricket match between world champions Australians & ICC World team was over in 3 days. World team was beaten comprehensively by Aussies, who out played them in every department.

World team defenetely was not a team. They were a collection of individuals. Ofcourse they were very talented, but just like the movie this band of LXG( League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) flopped. Teat match depend more on team work. Infact all kind of Cricket matches do. So just putting a talented players together in a tema for a short period of time is bound to fail & it did. Hope ICC get more brighter ideas than this!

Another Election - A Presidential Election

Sri Lanka is facing another election. The Presidential Election 2005. Normally Sri Lankans vote once a year. Its either general election, Provincial Elections or some other. But presidential election is normally held once in 6 years unlike other elections where they can be held @ the whim of the President. And now 13 candidates had file papers to run for Precidency. Yes. That is 13! Thirteen candidates from thirteen registered political parties. How many do we have? Take a guess. Over 50! I think the highest in the world. Ofcource many parties don't have more than 10 members. The standing joke is that many candidates don't even get their wife's vote for them.

The true battle is between Mahinda Rajapakse of UPFA ( United People'sl Freedom Alliance) & Ranil Wickramasinghe of UNP (United National Party). Mr. Rajapakse is the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka & Mr. Wickramasinghe is the Opposition Leader. The battle is going hard & fast in Sri Lanka, with the usual mud slinging in full pelt. PM is seen as a person morefriendly towards Sinhalese Buddhist majority & he has the full backing of Marxists JVP & JHU, which is formed by Buddhist monks. Mr. Wickramasinghe mean while has the support of CWC, which is the major party of Tamil Minority & SLMC, the Muslim Party. His stance is not very clear & the conduct of leaders of CWC & SLMC parties are very dubious.

Right now there is no clear winner to be seen in the contest. One is a people's man, while the other is a businessmen's man. What we need is some one with both attributes to take our country forward. But as usual we have to choose the lesser of two evils. I think the first one is the best.

Gloomy Week, Some jokes to cheer it up!

Mt dear is out of the country, so it's not a very happy week. Got some jokes through e mail which cheered me. So I'm sharing it with U,

Udurawana rushed back angrily to the grocery shop from where he had purchased
a packet of butter a few minutes ago.
"Where is my free gift?" he shouted atthe shopkeeper.
"But Sir, there is no free gift on the purchase of butter."
The shopkeeper answered politely.
"Don't fool me," replied udurawana, "it is clearly written on the packet of the butter 'Cholesterol free' but you gave me only butter".

One day Udurawana was home and he went to the kitchen, opened the Sugar
bottle, peeped inside and closed it. His wife was seeing this. After some
time Udurawana again went to the kitchen, opened the Sugar Bottle, peeped
inside and closed it.
His wife again saw this. Udurawana again and again did the same thing. His
wife was puzzled at why did he do something like this. So, she asked
Udurawana, 'Why did you open the Sugar bottle, see inside and close it often?'
Udurawana, 'I am a Sugar Patient you know.... Our doctor advised me to check
up the Sugar level often'.

Udurawana: Nurse, I am very eager to know my blood group.
Nurse: B positive
Udurawana: please tell me soon ....
Nurse: B positive
Udurawana: Madam, I am positive, but eager to know my blood group.

Udurawana bought a new car. Next day he is driving his car to office. On the
way he was waiting for the Signal. Suddenly he opened the door and got down.
Then he went to the Traffic Police and asked him,
'How much should I pay to turn right? '
The Policeman was astonished and asked, 'Why are you asking like this?'
Then Udurawana showed him the sign board which was
in the corner of the road:'Free Left Turn'

Udurawana: I was born in Kandy.
TV Interviewer: Oh really, which part?
Udurawana: All of me, silly

Udurawana got up in the middle of the night to answer the telephone.
"Is this one one one one?", says the voice.
"No, this is eleven eleven."
"Are you sure it isn't one one one one?"
"No, this is eleven eleven."
"Well,wrong number, sorry to have woken you up on the middle of the night."
"That's all right, mister. I had to get up to answer the telephone anyway."

Udurawana with two red ears went to his doctor.
The doctor asked him what had happened to his ears and he answered,
"I was ironing a shirt and the phone rang but instead of picking up the phone I
accidentally picked up the iron and stuck it to my ear."
"Oh Dear!" the doctor exclaimed in disbelief. "But...what happened to your other ear?"
"That fellow called back."

Q: Why did Udurawana take a pair of binoculars with him to a funeral?
A: It was a distant relative's funeral
