There is not a single day in your life without an excuse. You do mistake, fall into some problem and the best friend you find at that time is the excuse. It saves your day and if not at least gives you time to find another better excuse. Solution to this is to never do any mistakes or fall in problem which ain’t going to happen. You have to live with giving excuses. If you recall the excuses later on then you surely want to kill yourself for the stupid reasoning. They are quiet funny. While in search of these excuses, I found some typical ones.
You hurt someone close to you verbally and later on realize your mistake.
I didn’t mean those things I said.. I was drunk
You don’t want to go for a wedding, party or such function.
I swear I don’t have time
I couldn’t find anything to wear
While in an argument, most probably with your wife, you are unable to argue further.
I don’t know what you talking about?
When your wife finds you in intimate position with your secretary.
She jumped on me and I couldn’t stop her.. It’s all her fault.
Its not what it looks like.
When you are increasing your protein intake by having beer with your friends and you get a call or While your girlfriend\wife asks you for some expensive jewelery.
Hello.. Hello.. Can’t hear you properly. I am out of range may be.
My phone battery is low. Can I call you back?
While talking on phone, you get bored and don’t want to talk so you hang up the phone. When that person calls you back…
Don’t know what happened. These cellular companies are piece of shit.
The biggest, most widely used, very short and doesn’t affect much is…
Till you find another excuse…
After snoozing the alarm for two times at least, I wake up in the morning. Then I look at the watch on my mobile and suddenly I get charged up. Adrenaline pumps up like that of Popeye or Chev Chelios. Bath, Breakfast, Morning News and I run to catch my bus. I miss the bus and reach 10-15 minutes late. This time doesn’t count for others but for me it does. I am late. I don’t reach too late. So it’s never too late.
The same alarm I set an hour early a month back. What was the reason? Don’t guess. It was to start exercise. This is the most difficult activity which you are able to continue for long. I did well. My day then started an hour early. Simple 30-40 minutes of exercise and I am refreshed. What I forgot was it was summer. I already got too much of prickly heat. Due to this I had to stop my exercise routine. Still halted. Prickly heat is diminishing and soon I have to start up with my exercise. What’s stopping is the human tendency of not exercising again when the routine is disturbed. Me and those like me should remember that It’s never too late.
Due to my work in real life, my work in virtual world is very much disturbed. Many jobs and things are pending. When I decide I will finish this today, some problem shows up and I have to deal with that first. Just when I am done with that, a new one shows up it’s head. Now my work is aside and I am a problem solver. Days pass, weeks pass, months pass and my work stays at the same place. I just keep saying to myself. It’s Never Too Late.
I fought with my sister a year ago. As far as I can recall it was not my fault. Now there is a long running silent movie between us. Two of us and our parents are the audience of this movie. Ego’s clash and things get worse. Last month I said to myself, “Let’s end this”. But one side of me said, “It’s too late now”. The other side was unable to reply, “It’s Never Too Late”. I am unable to solve this mystery. Just waiting for the other side to say, “It’s Never Too Late”.
Till you are late…
On express highways, you often find car pile-up. That is obviously due to the very high speed driving. Just a fraction of brake can end up with a pile-up. I have personally seen one. Not a huge one. The one I remember most is from a movie named Final Destination 3. It doesn’t look exaggerated in spite of being fictional. There is one more type of car pile-up.
I haven’t seen cars piled up in such a fashion. Most of the times, Cars moving from factory to showroom are transported via lorry in horizontal position and tied to the base. Hats off to the above “creative” risky idea which may end up in real pile-up.
Till you think a crazy idea…
I was trying to think of a good title to the post. The above title is a short story in a movie which consist of ten stories put together. No need to guess that the movie turned out to be a mess. Unlike the movie I don’t want this post to be a mess. It is about drinking alcoholic drinks and finding yourself lying somewhere near the gutters.
Have you got drunk anytime? If you have then you’ll know the good feelings behind such incidence. I am suddenly talking about this is because I heard a talk related to this yesterday. (And you were thinking I am drunk too??) I thought of writing about this. Who knows if someone reads this and changes his mind and stops drinking. That would lessen the stress on alcoholic rehabilitation centers. (I got that right after some practice.) Continue reading →
I am a movie buff and it’s been years. I have a portable VCD player which I bought four years ago. But watching movies on TV was not of my liking. That was because of the old TV set. Last year on my fathers birthday we bought a new 29″ flat TV. It is big enough for me. And since then I always wanted a DVD player. But the problem was that I wanted the DivX files to play on the TV. So I waited and on Saturday I bought a DVD+DivX player.
I tried searching the net for that model but I didn’t find the link for that. Before that I did some study about available players. There was no player which supported Xvid format which is as popular as DivX. I contacted a dealer nearby for a similar player. There was none available. I was also looking for a player which could play files from USB drive. And all this search ended on Saturday.
Before buying the player, I went to the showroom and asked for models available. I asked whether I can check the player by playing from USB drive and he said OK. That was on Thursday. So I prepared some file samples from all the movie files I have and dumped them on USB drive. Following are the details of file samples.

- DivX 5 with MP3 audio VBR
