Baby if I told you the right words
at the right time

You'll be mine

For the curious ones on my msn

I have a 40% essay due in 10 days*. It is a higher level course so I need extensive research on political,social and legal levels to support my thesis. I had been dreading the evenings I would have had to spend in the law libraries researching loopholes in immigration laws that allows what my thesis was based on. I won't give it away because I do plan to work on it when I can .


Now here is the thing. As much as I loved my thesis and wanted to work on it, I knew I didn't have the time for it. So with no time to spare I was in a state of frenzy trying to figure out how I shouldn't get a big fat red F on this essay until..........


................... I realised I had a perfect alternate thesis waiting for me right there!! I had 3 months worth of research in the form of newspaper articles ( from 2003 covering this topic) , government documents that I had read and summarized as well as summary of books I had read on this topic. All organised in chronological order with summaries attached. I didn't have to worry about spending 10 days in accumulating data. I had it all!


Now I just need to analyze it and write a good paper.


*crosses fingers*



*I also have 2 other major essay, 2 presentations, 2 projects,1 cumulative research report,exam and 1 big assignment remaining all of which is due within the same time frame. Not that final exam prep has begun. I haven't included them in this list. Now I hope you know what the mild fuss is about.

Coincidence is....

.......when two of your close high schoolies get you the SAME present without telling each other, feeling proud they got you something true to your colour-obssessive nature.

From a concerned parent

I am concerned. A concerned would- be parent in the very distant future. If at all.


I realized Gujaratis are an overwhelming majority in my friends' circle. Now fast track to very many years later when we have babies. These babies will learn gujarati from their gujju parents who are my friends. Watch my baby-to-be end up learning gujju first and i'd go wha-t?


Communication gap already.


Oh yes I am concerned.

Kasam

I was @ KASAM ( joint event by ISA (U of T), Ryerson, York and UTSC) last night and had a great time. Dry event ensured the absence of unncessary ugly scenes brown events are known for. Cheers to that!

We had :

a.good food
b.great music with DJ Kamran
c.a hyped crowd
d. no slow couple songs ! :D
e. a few girls in bridal wear. As always. Maybe practising early for the real thing?
f. the donations for the Earthquake fund.
g. Hp, our Mr. Nice Guy.

Hit the bed at 4am with dead feet,throat and eyes.

International Art Fair 2005 @ Toronto - Part 1

In one word: Splendid.

It was worth the drench in the rain and getting lost trying to locate the skywalk to the Metro Convention Centre. We weren’t allowed to take snaps (no-brainer there) so I have to rely on the literature each gallery distributed + websites.

Some highlights:

Jon Kuhn: You’d have to be crazy to not love his dazzling glass work. My sis couldn’t stop praising his work after her trip to the Ainsley Gallery in the Distillery district downtown and I saw why.

Golden Dusk

His medium is glass, usually with 40% lead, like the ones used in the Hubble telescope and it accounts for greater clarity. Very finely cut. Inside each glass sculpture he has literally thousands of tiny finely cut glass squares glued together by UV glue. The sculptures are usually mounted onto a rotating device. So when you give the scuplture a light push, it rotates and you feel the sparkles overcrowd your vision. Beautiful. Definitely innovative.

Stonefield Commission


One day, someday, I have to own one of his magnificent pieces. Even if it is priced at $600,000.Or I may just settle for his paperweights.
His website

here.


Hamilton Aguiar: He paints with oil on canvas covered by silver leaf.It has a stunning pristine, surreal effect. His art could make it into my home earlier than Kuhn since it isn't typically over 50K :). And I love his work a lot. Very calm. Pictures do not do justice to his work, like Kuhn's, but this will have to do.
