What I don't get...

When people say "congratulation" instead of "congratulations". What .. do I not deserve more ... is there a shortage ... or has your country imposed an embargo on best wishes?

People walking around with the bluetooth earpiece. I mean, how crucial is the mere potential of a call, that you require an annoying blue-blinky-blink in your ear all the time? Do you even realize that it doesn't even look like you're important, but more like you're impaired?

Best Airplane Read: Frederick Forsythe's No Comebacks - intricate short webs spun by an ever-so-brilliant story teller.

And my incomparable quote of the week - spoken by the one and only Ms "I-Can't-Believe-How-Much-I-Love-Chicago", at our recent intriguing encounter, over wine and over-herbed tzatziki dip at an unpronouncable sports bar at the O'Hare Hilton. "I'm so sickeningly educated" - How subtle, no?

Actually, be happy they didn't say Congo instead. I mean - that's like a half congratulation; which deprives you of more accolades. Sad? Quite.

Bluetooth earpiece - Guilty only as long as there's a call going on, I take it off otherwise. I will not look like a FauxRobocop. It's bad enough that there's a lot of desis out there who just do it cos they want to look cool.

"I'm so sickeningly educated"? Really. Do I dare ask?
