There is a malevolence in the air

There isn't. It's just been a while since I've said 'malevolence.' Some words are good to say every now and then, in that they help keep different parts of your mouth and throat active. 'Flummoxed,' for instance, and 'egad.' The last one, I have only read Hiram Lodge, father of Veronica Lodge, say. But it gives you a good feeling. Of course, you shouldn't be saying these things in public. People around will stop, administer a beating and leave you about as effective as a freshly neutered man in a brothel.

But in other news, I'm back. I have returned from foreign shores and been welcomed as one among the natives here. Much progress on the Metro front on MG Road. Actual pillars have manifested and work is proceeding pretty swiftly. As a rival project, China is building the Three Gorges dam and dam-and-mass-transit-system-watchers say this will be a close race. The government reiterates its stand to complete the Metro project by 2011. But this is beginning to sound as convincing as Helen keller at an audition for 'The sound of music.'

Ouch.

[tangled] The errors shall be corrected forthwith.

'Egad' will definitely get you into trouble, unless you're a cartoon.

[malaveeka] Thank you.

Also, thank you. :)

Oh, Pinky (of Pinky and the Brain fame) says "Egad". Something like

"E-gad, Brain! But don't you need suntan lotion for a suntan?"
