hark! the graduate rants…

Woke up in a very nostalgic mood today, probably ‘cos our BE Graduation Ceremony happens tomorrow and I’m one of the few people who won’t be going.

Ever since the first year I wondered what it would be like posing for the cameras in the black robe and grad cap whilst holding the degree that I had “strived” for 4 years of my life! But, that was until I realised that the robe wasn’t black, but yellow (YELLOW!) and that the certificate wasn’t the degree but just some piece of paper with the college letter head. Ironically, I’ve been there for the graduation ceremonies of all the 3 senior batches.

What troubles me a bit is that I seem to be least bothered about it…except that I’m going to miss the whole gang that’s gonna be there tomorrow!

Loved every single one of his movies (including Mad Max and Conspiracy Theory!!) and now he goes ahead, gets drunk, abuses cops and becomes all anti-semitic and that’s just very disturbing! Read about it here. How the mighty have fallen!

Just the other day, Swen and I had a conversation that went something like this:

S-Dude…Mel Gibson’s a Roman Catholic right?

P-Yea, hardcore Roman Catholic! He’s got like 5 or 6 kids man!

S-Woah! Roman Catholic with 6 kids! That’s a tough act to follow!

P- Yea, he probably believes “If you can’t convert them, create them!”

(and then both of us burst into wild, raucous laughter that is typical of idiots with nothing better to do!)

Later

Listening to Mrs Robinson by Simon and Garfunkel (Holy moly! That’s the soundtrack to The Graduate right??)
