A twirl and a swirl

Reactions: 
A twirl and a swirl,
Then a swirl and a twirl
Tell me Alice, at the end
Does the twirl become a swirl
And a swirl a twirl?

Last Thanksgiving Trip

Reactions: 
As I was digging through some old mails, I came across mails sent before last thanksgiving holiday. Some of us friends did a 4 day trip through the following loop. It was tiring but loads of fun. I don't know if we'd all get to do it together again! Here's to all past trips and fun times!
PS: I'm staying back in Never Land this year - Enjoying home for a while! What are your thanksgiving plans?

Collective power

Reactions: 
Still among the best ads I've seen - shows what collective power can do.
It clearly portrays how the different factions of the society act. Small things like the sleeping policemen, the politician who only worries about himself, the girl in the auto complaining about the state of affairs, the guy in the car going out to help after admonishing looks from his wife all lend a subtle touch of realism. And, the expressions of the small boy to each of this - chanceless!
But the use of the rains, though appropriate, is a bit over the top. Maybe, we've gotten so used to this technique that it has become a cliche and hence is not giving the full intended effect. They're surely beating it to death!

Election Time

Reactions: 
It's election time in US for the senate and house. We've been inundated with ads and informercials about the candidate and party. I couldn't help comparing it with the election propaganda in India. But that is another story for another day! 
Here's a cool site that helps voters decide whom to vote for: Vote Smart. This site lets people see which candidate most aligns with their opinions and political stances. I wish we had something similar in India too. That would help people decide based on the representatives and not go by just the party. Do you think this idea would succeed in India?
