Ever since I've told my parents that I'm buying a bike, I seem to have moved into a different class of "accident probability", without actually having to own one. Over the last 6 weeks, I've had 3 accidents on the road. I was driving in only of those and the fault was entirely the bus driver's who pushed me off the road, though some might say going off the road at 60 KMPH was unlucky. But thanks to my jacket, I have only a couple of bruises, instead of the standard scraped arms (or worse).

All this has translated into a "Don't buy a bike" and "Driving is dangerous" sentiments in the centre. Which basically means - if I want a bike, I can buy it with my own money - A task, which is getting harder and harder.

All said and done, I spent monday with my right elbow in bandages and wincing everytime I had to use the mouse. I'm thinking seriously about writing to a couple of interface design teams about what they were smoking.

As far as driving is concerned - Buckle up Dorothy, 'coz Kansas is going bye bye.

No, Officer, that tree came out of nowhere and hit me.

Never before in my life have I managed to run through my entire salary before lunch on the 1st. Not even when I got my first 6,600 INR paycheck from Wipro did I actually spend it all, least of it in one day.

This would've made sense if I was paying for last month's credit card purchases, but I don't have a credit card. Except for 4,500 spent on books, none of the other expenses are what I'd consider as luxuries.

What gives ?
