Breakups and shakeups

At the risk of getting too personal, sometimes I get a feeling that just doesn't sit right. The next step for the women I have broken up with has always been a quick marriage. Not one, but *all* of them.

Now is that some sort of testament or indicator to how I handle a relationship? Or is it my choice in women? That fun thought slips my mind sometimes, and I don't look for answers. As for how things are now, the present and the future looks great.

And I love the baseball season coming to an end. Most of my co-Boston Red Sox fans don't want the NY Yankees to reach the playoffs, but I want them to. The playoffs are fun to watch only when the Sox and Yankees duke it out for the pennant. Of course there's a bit of misery when it all ends in most cases as the Yanks win. The days are sore, I can't watch ESPN SportsCenter, and I have to resort to Seinfeld reruns and trashy Hindi movies.

Talking of Hindi movies, I saw Black two weekends ago. A well-made movie, inspiring, though the crybaby part just wasn't me. I like the campy dance jing jang stuff. One reason it won't go to the Oscar's as India's representative in the foreign film section: It is based on Helen Keller's life, for which movies do exist. So it's not really original. Though the movie being based in Goa could win it a Best Film from the Europeans Who Love Dope organization.

UPDATE1: Got the news that Paheli went up as India's choice. Let's see how the Oscar folk can maintain their butts on one seat for 3 hours.

i'll buy that.. the indians are more complete than the sox/yanks, even CWS (put it on the board... yeah! I really don't want to hear that ever again in my life.) and lines are already forming in Cleveland to buy tix from Jacobs Field for the playoffs
