How does one alleviate homesickness? By doing the following

Wake up at 11am on a Sunday. Listen to FM music channels from Hyderabad. Get ready. Go out to lunch at a local Dosa place. Share appetizers with friends namely (the snacks that is, not the friends) Mirchi Bajji, Samosa and Cutlets. Move on to Masala Dosa and round it off with kulfi and nice filter coffee.

For dinner one should then eat Biryani from "Paradise"

Then one should watch old episodes of M*A*S*H talk to friends online and go to sleep.
The rest of the week should be much better.

And yesterday the temperature fell below 0 C. April my arse.

There is Paradise in NJ! My god, did not know they had gone international. How much does chicken biryani cost there?

@ Suku: outside outside. the last rectal thermometer reading i was involved in had a stray kitten in the starring role, it was not very pleasant..for the kitten , and those holding the kitten.

@Anil: It is a cheap copy, like robuck shoes or rajban sunglasses you get on abids footpath.

Even if there is Paradise in USA, its definitely not New Jersey. Maybe NJ is the south end of Paradise

Australopithecus said...

@Suku : yes yes, NJ is called the armpit of america for a reason.
