Not a word was spoken, no word remains except abusing.

Lyrics: A Love that will never grow old…

30 10 2006

OST from the Brokeback Mountain

Go to sleep, may your sweet dreams come true
Just lay back in my arms for one more night
I’ve this crazy old notion that calls me sometimes
Saying this one’s the love of our lives.

Cause I know a love that will never grow old
And I know a love that will never grow old.
When you wake up the world may have changed
But trust in me, I’ll never falter or fail
Just the smile in your eyes, it can light up the night,
And your laughter’s like wind in my sails.

Lean on me, let our hearts beat in time,
Feel strength from the hands that have held you so long.
Who cares where we go on this rutted old road
In a world that may say that we’re wrong.

Its Eid again

26 10 2006
Today was Eid here in Pakistan (actually the last one of the three separate eids by different ethnic groups).
The day is over and i am writing this blog with heavy eyelids and weary body. Yeah, the past few days have been busy and happening.
i am lying spent here. i have had a wonderful time these last days. totally recharging days  if you know what i mean.
had a lot to See, chat and enjoy. Finally had the opportunity to chat with my best buddy whom i can’t chat in regular days.
and above all, had the opportunity to spend a few days with the solace of my family.
So, one more day and i am off again to karachi where my job awaits and so does the old routine of hanging on the buses and all that.
till that time,
Johnny signs out

Farewell Shumi

23 10 2006
        I am gonna start with the finale of F1 showdown this season.
The Brazilian GP was supposed to start with my hero Micheal Schumacher starting from the 10th place. His team mate Massa was to start from the pole position.
The race’s start was catastrophic as in the early stages, 5 cars were retired. Schumi was trying hard to reduce the gap and he got to 5th position but things got bad. His tyre was punctured due to some debris on the track and he had to return to Pits for a tyre change. but that caused him to recede to the final place in the GP.
From this point started the tale of struggle and achievement that has made schumi the hero of many people like me. He recorded a consecutive sequence of best lap times and gradually reduced the distance.. crossing one car, then another, and another….
until by the half time, he was chasing the 8th position. He didn’t stop here, he pushed and pushed and pushed extra…
till he crossed Kimi Raikonnen at 4th place he almost crossed Button at 3rd place but it was a bit too late…
The final chequered flag for schumacher had been waved. his illusturious career had ended with his final GP being a symbol of his effort … again.
Alonso sealed his championship for this season as well with Massa winning the final race of the season.
So, schumi is now gone, Raikonen will take his place (nah, no one can take his place) and alonso going to Raikonen’s current team.
Lets see what the new season brings us. (will have to wait for a few months though)
Over and out from johnny!

Back home for Eid

22 10 2006
its me again from my home town.
So, i set off yesterday at 6 in the morning and spent a long day at office.
boarded the train at 5 PM and had a touch down at 9 AM the next day.
Well, its good to be back home. already had a busy day and the next few days will be more fun and pleasure.
Will post about it as soon as i get to know about it…
And in the end, a quick update on the F1:
Schumi got busted again– yeah, this time his car broke down during the qualifying session when he was leading. Seems to be a gearbox problem but tomorrow, he will start from 10th position.
I have my fingers crossed, but i’d still love to see him reach the podium.

Holy Smoke

18 10 2006

So, the cricketing season is ON again, and ICC champions trophy has just started.

When we pakis thought that our team seems to be out of the controversy, we never know we were wrong and this time, its doping scandal that has been the hottest gossip in the media.
Apparantely, two of our leading fast bowlers were found positive in their doping test conducted three weeks ago – Performance enhancing drugs seem to be the reason.

So, the two pacers are back in the country and hiding from the prying eyes of media and camera. (actually the team did fairly well last night in their absense by winning against Sri Lanka)

Khair, I heard the newspaper Dawn has an article that claims that some anonymous source saw Shoaib, Waqar (The bowling coach) and Asif smoking Hashish in England in their Hotal at 2 AM. WOW!!!!!! our national heroes are real dopes



Lets see what happens next, 2 year ban over the players is expected (this means that their career is on the verge of ending)


Till next post…. CYA!

Set the Controls towards the Heart of the Sun

14 10 2006

“Mission Control, Mission Control.. This is Commander Johnny from the Space Shuttle A.K.A ‘LOSER’ from Mars. Do you hear me?”

“Yes, Commander Johnny. Loud and Clear.” – replied the mission control.

“I have completed the assigned tasks. Please give me the clearance to take off”

“Have you collected the samples?” – Came the crackling sound of Mission Control.

“Roger” – Commander replied.

“Good, and have they been packed into their respective containers?” – Inquired the Mission Control.

“Yes, Examined and packed” – The Commander’s reply was quick.

“Well, seems good enough. Ok, Johnny. You are authorized to fly back to earth this Friday. Over and Out. Sweet journey”


The above excerpt would have been a part of conversation if I had been an astronaut in the outer space. But here I am, a total loser a good for nothing piece of programmer.

So, I invented this fictitious story to be a hero .. hehehe.

Anyways, to cut the crap, I am going home this Friday and I have done all my shopping for myself and my folks back there… All I have to do is to pack them in a bag and head home..

Can’t wait to see them coz its been almost seven months and i anxiously await to meet my family and friends and to recall some good old days.
