The Blah Blahs and the Yada Yadas Blog

Codes must be crazy

I was an Engineer by education at one point. Engineering college is slowly becoming a pleasant, but vague memory of the past. The time spent goofing around with friends, will, of course live in perpetuity – Who can forget that time when, after five beers on a dare, we shaved...

The Return of Zeus

He’s back. Long time readers of this site may remember that I had been willfully targeted by one of the earlier drafts of God, Zeus. For those who don’t know him, Zeus is the ancient Greek god of thunder, lightning, weather and other random sky related phenomena. [media-credit name=”20th Century...

Resolute Resolution

I was fishing around for an idea for a blog article, when my friends suggested that I write about my New Year’s resolution. They said it’s usually written towards the last day of December, but hey, better late than never. They advised that the key is to keep things realistic...

Gap Analysis

Ok. Excuses. Excuses. Let me see… I can do this. I just need to concentrate, that’s all. I’m a creative guy. I can come up with an excuse for not updating my blog for the past…decade, was it? This is the second longest stretch of inactivity in my blog, and...

Slightly over seige, doncha think?

It’s been a rough few months here – I’m suffering through an overload at work, stress, traffic woes, a nosebleed, nightmares of getting waxed off again, and Stallone’s ‘Bullet to the Head’, none of which were pleasant. But finally, a spot of sunshine emerged a few weeks ago that should...

Carazy Quest

Guess who owns a car? About two billion irresponsible, reckless jerks with no concern for pedestrian safety or traffic protocols, that’s who. It’s just how it is. There is nothing to do but shrug and accept it as something that just exists, like a personalized Gangnam style video. But that...

A Driving Ambition

People are generally not grateful enough for their blessings. Far too often, you can find smug little jerks walking around with more blessings than they deserve, be it winning at lottery or getting the window seat on the bus. There is no excuse for their candor, except, I suppose, in...

How to Avoid ‘The Dark Knight Rises’; A Practical Guide

Firstly, before people start shooting batarangs in my general direction, I need to set some context. I’ve been a big fan of Christopher Nolan since his 2000 release, Memento. When he took hold of the Batman franchise in 2005, I did a minor mental backflip, the tremors of which still...

Blabbing on flab

Friends and other acquaintances know some of the defining qualities of Hamish Joy. If you show them a photo of me hard at work, or of me passing by a buffet line, they would not waste an instant before proclaiming that it is a fake Photoshopped lie brought to you...
