cribbity crabbity

One of the top 3 things i hate doing is WRITING. I prefer the egyptian heiroglyphs, thank you. However it is positioned at # 3 with Drafting and Model making grabbing the top honors. I also hate several other things which i am unable to pinpoint.
I like dozing on the couch, with the TV and the stereo simultaneously in blare-mode, one eye on a Wodehouse, another on the telly..and preferably the comforting crunch of a cookie resonating in my ears.
Sadly, Roorkee is no couch-potato's den. Cruel, piercing sunrays wake you up to another day of drudgery. You shunt from one place to another, in vain hope of a yielding prof cancelling his class..only to troop out of his class four hours later, using the T-pulley for support..
BeWigged sets us off to survey the godamned Roorkeescape in the blazing sun. The Wobbly Man shakes his head with calculated disdain, when we enter the class at 9:01- one minute past the official time. And the best part: We are not spared the gospel knowledge of Quantum either. Add to it the interesting angle of crackpot despots teaching us how not to build a house. A stint here, and the Taliban would renounce their weapons and take up knitting.
Agreed. Cookiecrunching and tvstereotwotiming are luxuries beyond the realms of non-royalty. I mean you are supposed to slug it, if you want to turn into a Steve Jobs. On the other hand, NO, slugging is a purely personal choice. You don't slug for The BigWig or the Crackpot Despots at the beck of their bloody fingers. As a principle, i am anti-rebellion because you can always shut up and bear it. But my principle is already straining under the first of the 42.
Cribbing, they say, is a hypochondriac's first stage. But think ye, where would Pink Floyd and RHCP be without a little cribbing.


  1. It's alright to crib! I do it all the time! :)

  2. Watch Out has sustained 16 years! How do you suppose that happened?

  3. With 42 hours to contend with and an imaginary friend as the only companion(ha), I believe you do have reason to complain.
    But do not worry PG. I have half the number of contact hours and an un-deluded mind. I am still a master cribber.

  4. @ anunaya: i dunno. just cribbing doesnt help, here.
    @ kondy: u just transcended all limits of arbitness.
    @ arun: @#$%^&!

  5. too verbose... Maybe this may seem fancy but loses its litrary touch.... use devices but not very complicated ur situations are not really comical...its technically a boring piece about boredom.... Sorry but this is exactly what u shud avoid getting into

  6. i didnt make up the frustration! i WAS genuinely frustrated! and NO, my situations ARENT comical..
    however once i again i am terribly flattered that someone is actually reading all this :)

  7. Crib on. Here is a list of other potentials to crib about:
    1. Food
    2. 5 years in Rk
    3. Food
    4. Screen entertainment in Rk
    5. Food

  8. Haha.. points 2, 4 and etc. can still be grinned-and-borne. dunno abt the rest!

  9. @Rapu,
    Hilarious! Absolutely true if you lived most of those years in Cautley!
    Who are Crackpot Despot and The Bigwig? GR and TP? Rebellion, might I suggest, may prove to be entertaining too.
    And yes. Wonde-R-land was getting to be pretty tiresome.

  10. Bigwig is this civil prof who wears a wig(his name eludes me right now). Crackpot Despot IS GR.
    If you don't rebel or crib, you have to do the assignments:)
