Aspiration or Version 2

Posted by Avadhut on 20 April 2008

This time around, I want to make something that will look better next year than this…

Just like Mr. Bowie

Here am I floating round my tin can
Far above the moon
Planet earth is blue
And theres nothing I can do.

Clangoring imp

Posted by Avadhut on 10 April 2008

Once, long ago, she pinned this on my softboard during halloween:

A gentle breeze rustling the dry cornstalks

A sound is heard, a goblin walks

A harvest moon suffers a black cat’s cry.

Oh’ do witched fly!

The bonfire catches a pumpkin’s gleam.

Rejoice, it’s Halloween!

She used to award me “stars” for good behavior and “commas” for bad.

She always thought that I’d choose spelunking over food.

And she thought that my favorite game was mudpie-mudpie.

Then she was gone.

Now, she’s finally here.

El Paseo

Posted by Avadhut on 8 April 2008

Had a fun weekend, this last one. Rode off to Kashid. Three bikes—a Bullet 500, a Bullet 350, and an Avenger—and three cars—a Honda Civic, a Honda City, and an Accent.

This is all that we broke between Mukul’s (the 350) and my (the 500) bike.

The 500 (1998 Royal Enfield Bullet 500cc-Cast Iron Engine):

1. The rubber lever on the gear shifter.

2. The sump gaurd.

3. One of the horns “magically” fell off! ::gulp::

4. Gaurd mounts broke.

5. I think I have worn off the valve liners too.

6. The wheel bearings are definitely legally dead. 🙂

The 350 (Royal Enfield Bullet Machismo 350cc-AVL Engine):

1. The oil pump had temporarily given up on us.

2. The clutch cable.

3. Earthing wire came off.

4. Misfiring.

The night we travelled to Kashid, both bulls were regularly spitting fire everytime we slowed down from 100-110 KMPH, causing poor Kiran to keep safe distance. LoL.

All in all, good fun.

As usual
