Someone please clap.

Watched two movies this week. "Mere Baap Pehle Aap" and "De Taali". Both absolute shits - the kind you'd expect me to go and watch :-).
The first one is bearable. The second one is a total fuck. I so badly wanted to run away during the interval. It was only my record of watching every movie in full that saved it. Yeah, yeah I have watched "Ram Gopal Varma ki Aag" fully, in one sitting. Someone please "de taali" for my perseverence.

Alternate profession?

I am piloting my MiG-500 on a busy street in Koramangala. A dame I am not much acquainted with is sitting behind me for the first time. I am trying to strike a conversation. The transcript is as follows:

Me: Hey, what do u do?
She: I am a fashion designer.
Me: Wow, thats cool!
She: (smiles) Hmmm.

(I am praying she doesn't put the same question to me. But 5 seconds later..)
She: What do you do?
Me: (sheepishly) I am into software.
She: (looking elsewhere, in a flat tone) how surprising.
Me: $#@$@#$@#$@#%

I need to change my profession. Or think of putting it in a different way to make it sound interesting.
