All excited!

Sometimes completely unrelated things can provoke thoughts.

I noticed a suprise visitor at the outdoor mandap of my cousin's wedding in India. I could not help my excitement and took a picture of the very surprised frog.




Later I showed it to one of my cousins and said, "Dekh, shaadi par mendhak aaya tha!!!" (Look, a frog came to the wedding!!!)

He paused, looked at the photograph, paused again, gave me the strangest look ever and said, "Tell me something, crazy sis of mine. Is there anything in the world that does NOT get you all excited?"

"Of course there is!" I exclaimed.

"Oh yeah? Like what?"

"Like... errr... ummmm..... let me think...."

It took me a month. But I think I have finally managed to think of the answer.

Programming languages!

Programmming languages suck. I hate programming. I am really glad that I never had to do any programming at work.

Programming sucks! Die Programming! Hehehe

Hey Naari!
Bad memories, huh? I remember my software design partner looked at me and said, "Sayesha, I can't program to save my life. Haaalp!" And I said, "Dude, I can't program to save your life either. Rest in peace."

What if that was the frog prince?!!! Hahaha! You'll never know...

Programming languages are great coz they leave no room for ambiguity... if only we could all talk in C!

I know what you'd be thinking when you read this...

printf("*&#$@#!!!!");
kill(0, SIGTERM);

You guys are the antithesis of each other..viv gets kicks out of rewriting a 100 code line efficently and effectively in 20 while Sayesha used to be on MSN from class during those days..;) hehehe
