Travelling on This Easter Weekend

Its raining here in California. More like Minnesota rather than the sunny golden state is known for. On my flight here, I saw a couple of entertaining folks on the flight.Now all of us usually skip the boring part of flight safety instructions but these folks made it like a Radio Talk show which made it awfully interesting to see their onsite improvisation.

That apart they even had DirecTV onboard which meant 6 hours of uninterrupted TV shows. I am not a TV person and spent any time hardly on it. I flipped through most of them and settled on a History Channel which ran a mini series on the Jesus and I was trying to draw parallels between "The Passion" and this fact based show.Not really much, my Ignorance concluded.

Then got bored with it and switched on to National Geographic Channel which had this series called "Quest for Truth" and was trying to explore the reality of the yarn that was spun in "The Da Vinci Code". Dan Brown was on it trying to justify that Da Vinci was a member of some secret socety called some order of zion. Then he was trying to impress upon people that Mary Magdalene married Jesus and that she travelled to south of france and the first kings of france were the bloodline of Jesus.That was my Easter Sunday and I woke up to the smell of fersh coffee from Padma.Then it started raining.

I miss my pals out there in VA, but I hope to see those fellas sometime over here. Till then please munch on the following :

A boiled egg, you see, is not merely an egg that has been boiled. It is a self-contained package, an irresistible alliance, of violence and nursery rhymes. To get into it, you must destroy it.

[Venu] I am not sure what that means too and hence was waiting for someone who might have gotten it reading those.

BTW CA is good.Almost got my first ticket but told the cop this is my third day in CA and showed him ym VA license.Got off with a warning for speeding. Thats alone is enough to get me impressed with California.Thanks for asking.

>> Now that's an interesting perspective :-)

[Gee] I think I should ban the use of the word "interesting" for the latent ambiguity in the word. I always ask people to rephrase anything in their words use the word "interesting". Could you also please?
Anyways, Glad to see you back here :)
