Sanjaya

Sanjaya has survived into top 9 of American Idol and I have said before that he does not have good vocal. But it amazes me how luck or fate would shine on us sometimes like sanjaya making him most popular contestant. He is the center of talk at talk-shows, comedy central, office, magazines, and where not. Truly like he said, the sanjaya universe ;)


Last week I had friends visit me. As usual with everyone, I asked them to take thier shoes off before they walks all around the house. They were not pleased. I do have living room where shoes are okay if incase there is anyone who just cannot keep shoes out. But like it or not, I have a strict policy that shoes beyond living room are just not fine with me. I do know of people who even sleeps with thier shoes on, all rolling together with comforters and bedsheets and them. But that is them and I think me is just me.


This past week, scientists all over the world came together at Brussels to put the scary report out that world is warming faster than anyone envisioned. I know they put out such reports every year but this time they have lots of facts to back thier case. Again we can ignore the findings but very soon it is going to affect us lot more and lot worse. I dont know what we as individual can do to help but governments should really act fast.


Life has been busy. First the move, now catch-up to social world. Have a nice day.

Heyy Thanks for dropping by.

I agree with you on shoe thing. I too don't like people who move around the entire house in outdoor shoes. And sleeping with shoes ?? Strictly no no.

Btw, that song on my blog is very much visible. See with your eyes open :). I always upload my current song there on the player.

Have a good day !!

Ganesh Ranganathan said...

I never took reality shows seriously....somehow they concentrate more on the behind the scenes drama than bringing out talent...

P.S. Added you to my blogroll :-)

MG: Sanjaya is only changing the viewership of AI now. Not many are even interested to watch it and all desis including call centre ppl across India do vote.

Mumbai Guy said...

Mann : I was busy with move and at work, at home and at on the way. Life cannot get more hectic. And you getting roasted at 40C? OMG. That is too much. Take care.

Cuckoo : I tried hard but couldnt find the song. I will try again. Thanks.

Artistic : Apart from blogging, I do gossiping ;)

Ganesh : Thanks for visiting and for blogroll honors.

Mumbai Guy said...

Priya : Cmon, call center people across india vote? You should know that most of the major companies do not even allow call next door. And from remaining call centers where people could indeed call, you will be surprised to know of thier knowledge about sanjaya.

This call center factor is as strong as Howard stern factor.

Fact is Sanjaya has far too many fan following in schools. Really.

And Desis, I am sure will just talk and would hardly spend on voting. Yeah me too.

priya said...

MG: It came out in times of Inida paper about the voting thingy. Regarding your comment, shall I publish it or wat??

Keshi said...

preeti said...

this whole voting thing doesnt bring out the real talents..u agree??

really donno how do people sleep with shoes on.. yuck! its ok if u ask them to take their shoes off.. rather than repenting later for not telling :)

and no, i dont work for Google India :)

priya said...

Shud I say him "underdog" of the idol competition:))

Tohou Lidia said...

Mumbai Guy said...

Preeti, the voting thing does bring some new real talents on stage but yes, they may not be on winning list. That is what happened to last Indian Idol. I thought Karunya was best but Sandeep took the honours.

Priya, you can call him whatever ;)

Tohou Lidia : you too? ;)

Cuckoo said...

Hmmm.. talking about warming na? Then write something about the summers as well :P

Nahi samajhe ?
You are tagged !! Check my blog. Would you mind doing that tag for me ?

Thnx in advance. :))

Drama Div@ said...

hmmm....

sanjaya sanjaya sanjaya....
he's suck. no doubt about it he sang quite okay last week.. cant wait to see AI tonite!!

shoes in da hse... it's merely not our (malaysian) culture ... thank God for that...

raghav said...

Every reality show has its share of 'popular' contestants .. they help increase the viewership and keep the existing ones sticking to that channel .. *grin*

I agree about the shoes... though I dont mind them wen underneath that they have even more smellier socks ! :D

Sush said...

hmmmm... so so much on the platter :), good that you survived the move without any events, which I assume because you have not posted anything on it.. and catching up with social life, goooooood!!!

Shoes around the house.. awww.. and what is there in asking someone not to wear shoes beyond the living room.. just dont care about what they feel or say, cleaning up behind them is always going to be the worst thing to do.. ask me (my carpet woes).
