Once upon a time, there lived a really mean terrorist named Assama (“The A$$”, to the world in general). He was responsible for a lot of bad deeds around the world. He was so mean, he would snatch ice-cream cones away from children and pull at pigtails when he stepped out for his evening walk. Children would scream and scurry away when they saw him coming. Yes, he was one bad cookie.

Like all bad people, he had to lay low once in a while. At the time of this story, that’s exactly what he was doing – lying low. The world was a wee bit pissed with him since he had been rather naughty, causing some discomfort to the most powerful nation of all – Oosafaay. The reigning monarch of Oosafaay, “President”, had declared a price on his head. Dead or alive. Preferably as dead as can be.

For almost a week now, there’s been a new tab right at the top – and, it proudly reads “Dadly Experiences… The Book“.

Nobody noticed, nobody commented… 😦

Oh, and nobody ordered a copy, either!

I have, of late, been enthralled by the works of James Thurber.

Here are some of his masterpieces, available online.

The Catbird Seat
The Unicorn In The Garden
The Little Girl and the Wolf
The Macbeth Murder Mystery
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

I’ll try and add to this list if I’m able to find more of his works. If you know of more, please do provide the links in your comments!

Managed to read through Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. J.K. Rowling’s latest, and reportedly final, offering kept me up all of Tuesday night!
A good read – in fact, a very gripping tale indeed! Though, I’d say, this book is more of a screenplay than a novel. Some parts are a bit confusing, there’s a lot of action “Rajnikant” style, and maybe a tad more fantastic than the previous books.
It’s a well laid out plot, and the descriptions are really vivid. You can actually close your eyes and visualize the events.
All in all, a MUST read for all Harry Potter fans. I look forward to watching it on the big screen.
Hopefully, when JKR is tired of spending her millions, she’ll come up with something else to entertain the world!
