Neophobia!

I don't know if it is an Indian mentality but anything new especially if makes life convenient/comfortable makes me skeptical. Infact, I almost always stand in the way of my husband's (unending!) wish for new electronic gadgets. At times it is like Rukmini limiting Krishna's அவல்(poha) eating, but sometimes I also learn to enjoy the item's use and convenience(like the Digital camera or GPS system).

The Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta is a fun park. With the weekend weather spring-like(with ஆளாளு giving certificates that it is El Nino and/or Global warming's effect!), coupled with some interesting holiday attractions for kids, it turned out a nice outing. With hubby dear safely taken the cameraman's role, I had no choice but get into the rink for my daughter's sake. Wow! How easy and simple the Ice skating appears from outside! Just a short walk to the kiddies rink through the adult's ice skating rink proved a nice 'சில்லரை வாரல்'!!

BTW, have you heard? Like googled, bangalored it is plutoed now!!

After a lot of chillarai, I can wear 'em and stand now. Maybe if someone pushes from behind, i can move too. My aim is to not fall, never mind moving around.

munimma, cool-a? cold-colder-coldest(Pluto-vaache!)! BTW, how about Amitabh Bachchanned (for demotion and then double promotion)?

ttm, the March Madness that I'm concerned at my house right now is the ICC worldcup in WI(time for my Rukhmani avatharam again!!)!

deepa, thanks. So, I can now hope to stand on my own 2 legs someday, huh?
