I was in India for vacation and was bored with life in general. The previous evening of my return, i went and got my soft straight black hair permed ( i was actually contemplating between colouring it pink and perming ). My BIL said the curls looked beautiful when he came to take me home and told his wife (my sister) "Don't u ever do it !!!"

I do only sane things.Becoz of this insane and neurotic world,I am absolutely sane,So my life itself is crazy in others eyes.But in my eyes,all the world is crazy.So living here itself is a crazyness to me.

100% crazy.So picking one is difficult.And why it can be classified as "Crazy things"?.For me,all Sane.

Enough?.

I was dragged down a dirt road behind a pickup truck for a half mile.

I didn't actually do this on purpose. It was late at night on a dirt road in the woods. I was foolishly standing on the rear bumper, the truck hit a bump and my feet came off. Fortunately or unfortunately, I'm not sure, I managed to hold onto the tailgate. The truck was going too fast for me to get my feet underneath me. It had no muffler so my yelling went unheard. Not wishing to do a face plant, I held on hoping for an oportunity to get out of the situation in one piece. Eventually, the truck slowed to make a sharp turn in the road, I got my feet under me and began to run, still holding on. I let go and promptly tripped on a rock and fell, flew really, face first into a large mud puddle. The only thing that hurt was my toe where I kicked the rock!

That wasn't my only close call. It is amazing that I survived my youth.

Tuesday: I've lost my wallet in train
(including credit card, ec-card, identity card, 3 or 4 insurance cards, 2 electronic cards for getting in those IT departments of my customers, drinving license, card for riding train half price, ...)
Today I got it back. Somebody took the 10 Euro of cash money. But it was great news this morning.
Wednesday: I catched very wrong train to get to customer. I had meeting scheduled at 10:00. It was 9:00. The train back from the railway station I got out was at 10:00. I saw a sign 8 km to city of my customer.
I started to walk really fast, thinking about how to get cab. On the other hand it was beautifull morning, yellow and green fields, some trees, blue sky, not too hot and few cars on the road.
Next I saw collegue in car. He picked me up.

I need hollydays. In 5 weeks I'll have 2 weeks off.

Twelve years ago, for about a week or two, I drank my urine, fresh and warm - first thing in the morning

PS. I've got two words for you: Urine Therapy
 
What is that? Is that a mongol hoarde? Can we fend them off with this tiny ad?
