Unlimited morons

Sunday, artsomniac was as good as possible with her internet service provider. Mr Garu is a real jerk, she knows. Stories about Mr Garu is quite popular in campus. People shouting at him and switching to another upcoming service provider, cable B, is quite a common sight. What Mr Garu does for those bad sheep who goes away from his fold is, he secretly cuts the B connection cables to your room. You will realize it soon that the highly efficient new internet service is not working because of Mr Garu's wrath. The new service group is really good,it seems, as the believers testify. It charges you fifty rupee less than Mr. Garu's connection, it has a sophisticated way of working which includes sms notifications to your mobile about new services, offers and stuff, it offers kaspersky antivirus(paid one, not available for free download) absolutely free for the users. Garu on the other hand does not give a damn for you as a customer and he gives you viruses to your laptop free of cost. He thinks that he still is the feudal lord in the internet sphere on campus.

Artsomniac was going around, asking her unfortunate garu subscriber neighbors whether they too have a problem with the internet. Alas, no! She does not have company this time. From one room, a visitor Alice who was a prior customer of Garu declared: "I don't understand why you people still stick to this guy. The new service is really good. I think all of you should switch to this and chuck this Garu out of campus"

Well,artsomniac thought, "right now I dont have the deposit money required for a new connection. May be I should try him once more." And finally Mr Garu answered her call and said he will send somebody soon but that soon never happened in say three and a half days time. she was almost finishing the project she was working on, and she needed a lot of browsing now and this happened. Oh, artsomniac does not want to be the one who begs around asking permission to use internet. And when you fix your pendrive to another person's laptop, you really can hear what is in their mind. "Oh, please no viruses" because you have them aplenty with Garu's connection.

As the most calm and happy-go-lucky (Which means, If artsomniac is happy, you are lucky) person on campus who does not really pick up fights with people, she decided to wait and keep calling Mr Garu. By the second day, he stopped picking her calls, and she was there, sitting like fool, and calling and calling hoping that he must be away, he will come back, he will pick the phone, he will send the guy, she will get my connection back..nada!

The same thing happened on the third day too and rtsomniac does not know which nasty brain typed out this message from her phone to his. However, it goes like this."Mr Garu, I just want to disconnect my internet. Please do not come and meet me for money. You are supposed to give me back my initial deposit. On second thoughts, I think you should keep the change since I do not like to encourage any sort of communication ever with you. Thank you for the wonderful services." And then, there is no news from him.

artsomniac has decided to switch to cable B once she is done with formatting her laptop out of the viruses she has acquired so far. she never thought that she could send such a sophisticated nastiness as an sms. Artsomniac generally is a 'nice' person,you know. he he...

five reasons why artsomniac loves e e cummings (the title comes only in caps, by default and thats a sad irony for this post)

reason one: he wrote i carry your heart with me which happens to be a favorite.

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

reason two: he has an easily paintable face and it looks good in blue ;-)artsomniac painted this sometime last century:)

reason 3: he destroyed the hierarchy between the capital letters and small letters. democratic, huh?

reason 4: the way he writes his name in small letters is sort of cool.

reason 5: he uses a lot of moon imageries, which is artsomniac's favorite too.

Just because artsomniac loves her life

Its just taking her a bit longer to understand life. To come to terms with it. Otherwise why would she take two hours of speech to understand what is precious in life? It is life which is precious. Life of us as fellow human beings. This is going to be her constant point of view. her no- utopia of well being because she can never be anyone else. she can only be herself and she can only love what she loves.

What is common between Mutton curry and CPI-M?

The same variety of one Mutton Curry and CPI-M are found both in Kerala and Bengal:-)

It was artsomniac's day out to visit her doc, so Aswathy and artsomniac left around 10:30. they waited for an hour eventhough she has an appointment fixed at 11:30. Both of them had stuff to read, so they sat down and started reading. aswathy was reading "Sundarikalum Sundaranmarum" and artsomniac was interrupting her whenever she found really cheeky remarks in K P Nirmalkumar's writeup about M T in a very old Mathrubhumi Weekly mag.
they had already decided on the way to have food from the 'Hyderabad Bangali Samiti' on their way back. That plan was excecuted. And, all she has to say now is "Wow". they had ordered normal Veg thali meals and mutton curry. The mutton curry simply took her home, to Kerala. It was almost like the mutton curry her Ma makes. So she found out one more thing which is found in common in Kerala and Bengal, other than CPI-M.
By the end came Rasagulla,which was not at all like the Haldirams Rasagulla which at times make her feel like chewing sweet rubber sheet. Yea, Rubber sheet soaked in acid is still a strong memory from her childhood, and the machine which is used to transform chunks of crystallised rubber to thin rubber sheets which is then dried and smoked and then sold. Apparently, that machine is the first machine artsomniac encountered which gives patterned impressions on a surface. It was long before she learned to paint on clothes using patterned blocks. What she wanted to say is that, the Rasagulla was really really great and did not give strange connections with rubber sheet. artsomniac loves Bengali food now(but not that veg curry which had a weird taste).
