Last night Subhamoy and I cooked dinner for my parents. Roasted zuchini and asparagus was my contribution to the table. Subhamoy made his special tuna dish and his delicately sauteed brussel sprouts. Not a conventional meal by any standards, but it was good. My Dad had his reservations for the sprouts, but then he eyes any chlorophyll laden food item with suspicion. After dinner we went over to visit Turtellini - our friend Theron's pet of many years. Turtellini was very excited at the sight of my Mom and tried clawing her way out of the tank much to my Mom's delight.
A circus of sorts set up shop in my workplace today. Somebody mailed everyone on the system one of those silly emails about trying to force the gas prices down. That's no problem - one gets atleast two of these mails everyday and dutifully erases them without even looking at them. But today for some reason, somebody decided to educate the sender on the follies of being naive and gullible. A very noble intention on might think. But when this educational material is sent using the "Reply to All" functionality of the mail server, the whole story takes a different turn. The "Reply To All" virus got to everyone on the system and soon enough we had a whole bunch of petulant engineers telling everyone else to stop mailing junk. Needless to say, we spent the better part of the day erasing mails from our inboxes.
