Murphy's Law

Murphy's Law states that
"If anything has to go wrong, it will go wrong at the worst possible time and in the worst possible sequence"
I suppose everyone can identify with this statement atleast once in his/her lifetime. The past two weeks have proved me that this is the most applicable law in day-to-day life.
Firstly, exams. Somehow profs are always able to find the portion I am not so good at and ask questions from it. The second part of the statement also cames true with 5 papers in 2 days. All the tough papers are on the first day and the easier ones on the second day.
The exams ended on Thursday. Thoughts of relaxing and watching some soccer crossed my mind but ESPN/Star Sports have stopped live telecast of La Liga (Spanish Football). With Real Madrid losing three matches in a week, my friends are not losing any opportunity to make fun of the Galacticos.
Continuing with sports, tennis has gathered many new supporters here with Sania fever spreading around. Federer was invincible as ever even when he played below par. Hewitt and Agassi both could take only one set each off him. Can't wait for Australian Open to start.
On the positive side, I watched the complete Lord of The Rings again. Somehow, we got an uncut version with one and a half hour of extra footage. Enough reason to watch the trilogy again. More than 10 hours later, I realized that LOTR is one of those rare movies in which eveything is perfect from casting, dialogues, cinematography,story, direction etc. Now I am back to reading LOTR again.
CAT preparations are going on at a decent pace. Quantitative Abilities is proving to be my nemesis in Mock CATs and I am working on it.
Time to go back and mug up some Quants and listen to some music.

Dude, I am GREEN. You really make me want to go back to IITB. I still remember those weekends(they used to start on friday afternoon itself). Used to play soccer till 7.00 and then after a very very pathetic friday dinner we guys used to freak out. Freaking out was anything from watching non-stop movies of "every" kind, going out to the town and stay there till 4.30 AM(the time for first local to start) or going to a mid-night buffett and eat until the staff used to plead us to leave. Man those were the days. And yes, drinking was an essential part of all the activities. I still do all this but its like once in a blue-moon kind of thing.
Coming back to present, Madrid really need some good mid-fielder. Zidane is not playing currently and Beckham is way way beyond his peak now. With Figo already gone there is not even a single midfielder around which the team can pivot. Baptista seems more like a forward. Graveson seems a good choice though. And yes LOTR is GOD. Especially the book. Trying reading "The Silmarillion". Amazing.
