I just woke up at 5:45am today for a glass of water. I was pretty surprised to find myself holding on to a pillowcaseless pillow, with the pillowcase thrown outside the bed. Wonder if my future girlfriend will mind me doing stuff like that in my sleep ;)
Ok, pillowcase is now back on pillow...good night again, everyone :)

mini.opera.com - download opera mini, and kiss ancient S60 browsers goodbye!!! you only need the below links if you cant use opera mini for some reason.
www.google.com - it translates all HTML search results into WML. an absolute must.
mail.google.com/mail/ - gmail for my cellphone - can't live without it!!!!
mobile.msn.com - msn messenger and hotmail on WAP. works good for me.
in.wap.yahoo.com - yahoo mail and messenger. messenger is especially useful.
wap.my-symbian.com - excellent downloads of symbian and java software for cellphones.

funny thing is that when i'm around friends that i got to know during the tongue tied phase of my life, i automatically go back to my quiet (former) self. really weird and inexplicable (to me atleast), but true. i simply run out of things to say before i get started. like last saturday, when i met up with my ex-classmates from xaviers. so many of my classmates even asked me why i wasn't talking much...i could only reply "i was always quiet, wasn't i?"

a. people who kept me company from the start.
b. people who turned up despite all odds.
c. people who stayed on till we could drink no more.
d. person who tolerated me swaying all over the roads, while i was pretending i'm not drunk.
e. person who forgot all about me, and hence didn't turn up.
f. people who pretended i'm not drunk, or didn't notice, and gave me nice hot food at 2am.

the best part about listening to music as i go about my life, is that i can relive that part of my life by just playing the song. it all comes back to me - the sights, the sounds, the feelings and emotions, even the weather.
i'm listening to "you once told me" by andain. i'm in the rain, standing at the door of a (somewhat empty) fast train, my windcheater's in my bag because i'd rather get wet, it's early august 2006, it's almost sunset, i'm on my way home from college. i'm planning my trip to matheran with a certain miss d. i'm in love. i feel warm on the inside even though i'm pretty much drenched and almost shivering on the outside. i'm happy beyond measure. life seems perfect.
dunno who i'm quoting, but "god should have given everyone an iPod inside their head". actually any mp3 player would do as well :)

this example sends an email with the text "hello".
here's how i did it:
1. configure outlook or outlook express for sending emails
2. in an excel file:
view -> toolbars -> control toolbox
more controls -> microsoft mapi session -> (insert into sheet1)
more controls -> microsoft mapi message -> (insert into sheet1)
tools -> macros -> visual basic editor
insert -> module
3. enter into the module:
Public Sub sendEmail()
Dim emailAddr As String
emailAddr = ActiveCell.Text
.SessionID = Sheet1.MAPISession1.SessionID
.RecipAddress = emailAddr
.MsgNoteText = "Hello"
.RecipType = 1
4. close the visual basic editor, go back to excel
5. enter an email address anywhere in the excel file, and select that cell
6. tools -> macros -> macros -> sendEmail -> run
7. click away any security warnings :)

i also met my ex last weekend. i've missed her a lot over the past 3 months. but somehow, after i met her, i was left wondering what exactly i missed. i guess a failed relationship changes people, and she and i are no exception. still, it's very saddening to miss someone who's changed so much, cos meeting her doesn't make me miss her any less, it just makes me a little more miserable than i was before.
miss you, daf.
