I miss you

I have great friends in my life right now. Brenda and Anjuli are the best girlfriends one can ask for. Moving sucks because it means leaving friends behind and I am hoping it doesn't happen again, at least for a long time.

That doesn't mean I don't get nostalgic for the days of past. Because of recent occurences and reasons, I am really missing friends from childhood and college years this week.

Arshinder, I miss you. I miss riding our bicycles back and forth and dancing in the contests without any self consciousness.

Shallu, I miss our high school days of secrets, frustrations and big dreams. I miss our talks and long walks in the neighborhood.

Alyssa, I miss winters in IL. I miss how both our hair, so long and curly, would freeze. I miss the overnights at the front desk and the long days at the food services. I miss your parents and I miss your sister.

Tim, you know how much I miss you. I miss our 8 hr long shopping sprees and that awful car of yours with the exhaust pipe that dragged in the floor.

I miss all of you and wish I could be in a place where I have the option of at least speaking to you daily, if not seeing you.

When I am right, I am right

I am not an overly assertive person; maybe overly confident sometimes but not necessarily overly assertive. Specially in certain aspects of my life, mainly work.

But, when I am 110% sure I am right and people won't listen to me, I can be an ass. Because after the first half a dozen times, when I've tried explaining politely how I am right, I think I lose the ability to be polite anymore.

I'm not talking about it, I'm just sayin'. (and this line is copied form someplace, can't remember where but it is).

Anjuli's comment on Facebook got me thinking yesterday. Do all my friends think that becuase I like country, I couldn't possibly like any other genre? Then, I got to thinking what do I have on my playlist. So, I wanted to go and play the music on my iPhone and shuffle it to see what I have. Then, I realised I have 3 separate playlists; bollywood, country and everything else. For this experiment, I guesses I would play everything else, since everyone knows I like country and Bollywood, duh. so, here are the first 20 songs that came up:

Ice Cube - Do Ya Thing
Aimee Mann - Save Me
Katy Perry - I Kissed A Girl
M.I.A. - Boyz
The Last Goodnight - Pictures Of You
Reel Big Fish - Sell Out
Finger 11 - Paralyzer
The Statler Brothers - Whatever Happened To Randolph
Natasha Bedingfield - Pocketful Of Sunshine
Cake - Manha Manha
The Statler Brothers - The Class Of '57
The Weather Girls - It's Raining Men
Louis Armstrong - La Vie En Rose
Gwen Stefani & Akon - The Sweet Escape
Dexy's Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen
Elvis Presley - Suspicious Minds
SaxxonPike - Heaven Is A Place On Earth (Remixed to Trance) uhh I think Jeff put this on
Cake - Mexico
Eminem - Without Me
Madonna - Cherish

Yeah, that's it right there, my music tastes. And, it didn't even come up with my Bob Seger or Billy Joel or Lady Gaga or any Reggae that I have .
