Photos from phone

Some photos from my phone taken over a month period.

I Found this jeans in Khols. Available for Sale of course. Priced close to $30. I am just wondering how they make these jeans? What kind of process woud be this? Who ever came up with this idea is a genius. "We tear what you wear". Do they sub contract this job?

My Son is 2 years and a few months old. One day he made this face all by himself. When we saw it, we were surpirsed.

Found this product in a $ shop. Could not resist. For a lack of better name, since most good names are usde up by websites and Chatt room users, they have started giving matter-of-fact names to products now. Rectangular FM radio? Does it play round the clock?


This lake lies next to our office parking lot. It froze during the snowy days. Took the photo from the car itself, from the middle of the road.

Some wild cherries in snow. 'Frozen dessert' anyone?



This building is in Chicago downtown. If you look closely you will see how they have parked cars at lower levels.

The Bread Bowl

The shopping spree, so I call it, continued yesterday. We went to Kenosha this time. A strip of classy shops ranging from Nike to Eddie Bauer. We tried out some stuff at EB, but had to return right there when we saw that the 60% off did not mean anything at the end.

Moved over to Old Navy. Picked up a full hand shirt for $10. A decent purchase compared to the lunch we had at Quizznos.

The concept of serving soup in a bread bowl attracts me. A bowl that you can eat. I wish someone copies this idea in India. Clam chouder, my fav. soup next to the French onion, somehow did not go well with the sour dough bread bowl.

The parking was full today too.

Back home felt a bit sick and rested for a while went to Indian store. Dhoom-I was playing in the shop's TV. Some fine shots and daring action. Wondered how Abshek looks so alike his father with those rectangular glasses, true Amithap 'Bacha'.

Another weekend goes by with no big news. Hmmm one more is on its way.

The weekend before Christmas

It was too crowded at the mall today.

Our first visit was to Sam's club which was unusually crowded. Probably usual for these days in the year, but not for the monthly shoppers like us. We ordered the delux pizza at sam's. Ordered it 'to go', but had it right there. We were both a bit sick. Head ache, a simptom of having been out in the cold for a while.

At Sam's we faced a huge crowd, long lines and a whole lot of stuff we did not require.

Went over to Sears looking for some decent dress, lo the crowds had gone ahead of us there. The parking lot was full as in full. Cars everywhere. Gurnee Mills had no parking space unless you had a hover craft.

At sears the shopping went bad. We found nothing interesting. After about a hour of picking and trying various dresses we had to walk out without buying anything.

It was amazing how the holiday spirit has caught up here. People are all out, buying stuff and stuffings. X'mas indeed has been commercialized so much, if the shopping is not an indication the parking is.

Came back home early and started cooking for the first time after I was married in 2003. A simple chicken curry that I am always fond of making.

We have more shopping to do, after all celebrating the birthday of Jesus Christ is no passing thing.

Note: Since this blog has been dormant for a while, reflecting the state of my mind, I have decided to post a few diary entries like the one above every now and then.
