A Whole New Level of Absurdity

According to a Mumbai Mirror article I read today, Ajmal Amir Kasab, the infamous terrorist captured alive during the 26/11 attacks, has been charged, apart from various other things, for entering the CST platform without a ticket. Yup you heard that right. He has been charged for ticketless travelling. I don't know if I should even comment on this level of absurdity. Oh what the heck.  What ridiculousness is this? What sort of madness has struck the officials!? No, no, ticketless travelling? Seriously? And apparently if convicted, he faces either imprisonment of up to 6 months or a fine of up to Rs. 1000 or both. Ooooh scary huh? Idiots.

Birthday Blues?

This morning I randomly looked at the calendar and realized that it's my birthday in two weeks. I'll be turning 19 - such a pointless age. And I'm oh-so-sure that the day is gonna suck. Call it woman's intuition or just plain knowledge of circumstances, but I know that it's gonna be so lame that lameness is about to be redefined. A pointless birthday for a pointless age. Blah. Ah, the post just sounds depressing, yeah? It's not all bad. I'm very excited about the loads of shopping I'll get to do with my birthday as an excuse. And I'm sure retail therapy is gonna work wonders for the lack of everything else. So yay.
