back to speed

i have barely blogged for almost a month now. here's what's been happening in the meantime:

valentine's day

went to the kala ghoda art festival with a good friend, meet a few tweeters out there, then headed to a bar near shivaji park and drank till midnight or so. hung out in the park till 4am, then met another friend and biked to lonavla. trekked a bit too. quite an awesome 24 hours, in all...made even awesomer by the fact that no love was involved!!! ;)

sandhan valley

had an amazing 2 day trek (which also spilled into the first night - my first night rappelling stint!!!) with an overnight camp in the valley. ended with a swim in a dam. my hardest and longest (and hence, best) trek so far. too lazy to post any photos yet. will probably do a double feature sometime next week.


twitter addiction

i'm officially a twitter addict now. mainly thanks to pocketTwit, which works on my phone like a charm. it also drains my phone's battery like mad, so i'm usually offline and unreachable within 6 hours of leaving from home. combined with my poor memory and absentmindedness when it comes to charging my phone, it typically comes down to 3 hours. still, that's a small price to pay for having my life documented for posterity (i hope) on twitter.

bike troubles

i busted a tire, busted a spark plug, busted the battery, busted the disc brakes. all in one month. thankfully they're all fixed now...except for the battery :)

ipod troubles

my 2-month-old ipod reboots constantly. initially it was due to corrupted data (winamp was screwing it up). switched to itunes, and the problem disappeared for 2 weeks. it's back with a vengeance now. and it's pissing me off!!!

drying out

i have quit alcohol for lent. for the first time in my life. i don't know why and i don't even know how...but now that i've embarked upon it, i'm gonna see it through. i'll be quite drunk on easter though :P

the walkathon

went for a company-organised walkathon in aid of concern india last weekend. walked 7km without breaking into a sweat. (okay, the sweat was due to the sun, not the walking :D). photos to come later. could i actually be getting healthy? i wonder!

hmmm, guess there's nothing more to mention. i have a few secret updates too, but they're gonna be kept off the blog :P

the hunter and the grazer
