Ice Ice Baby

History of the World Part II – “Hitler on Ice”!
What a Year! It takes a couple of ligaments to tear free of their moorings for the focal length of your perspective lens to change! Its been snowy and icy in Boston the past month and Somerville, the city I now call home, is especially riddled with icy and snowy spots! There have been times i have taken a step only to slide forward like a runaway deer on ice (dont even ask – i have a vivid imagination!)…
“Let it Snow, Let it Snow”
And it did! Tons… and then the rains came and swept it all away! The only thing that can trump nature is Nature!
“Jingle Bells”
I attended Christmas Mass at the St Paul’s Church in Harvard Square. The highlight of the Christmas Service every year is the Boston Boy Choir that performs, and even the tone deaf like me can see that they are good!.
The other highlight was when I attended my first “White Elephant Party” on my yearly post-christmas before-new-year trip to Vermont!! My professor who invites me over to his “house in the hills” every year, is one of the most amazing people in the world! At this party I met a bunch of really interesting people, Vermonters who are so full of life.
“Its Another Day in Paradise”
The New Year was rung in with quiet reflection… we now have a lovely new roommate, G, whose intelligence and vivacity is a complement to the brains, niceness and pure brightness of my other two roomates… One wonders how I fit into the scheme of things… the only explanation I can offer is that some people “slip through the cracks” and this one crack that let me in was a big wide one!!… back to the subject, G’s boyfriend D (Wai am full of da alphabet in my posts wonly, in interest of annoynimity) was hosting a party and i ended up there, my first new year where everyone I met was someone who I hadnt known for more than 2 weeks… small world, this!
New Year Day was spent singing karaoke Christmas Carols (dont ask, will not tell!) with family in North Reading… my whole khandaan in Boston was assembled and we had great fun with the angels, the glory, the silent night, among others…
On a totally unrelated topic, a good friend sent this across …
Back to work, now….

Been really busy with papers and assignments, figuring out how to change the lightbulb while standing on one leg on a one legged stool, wondering if “42” is the answer… will get back to blogging after finals
