I'm back with the letter to that sixteen year old jerk!

Hello people!

So... how have you been? Good? Good. I'm good too. I've never seen three 'good's in as many consecutive sentences. Make it four. Alright, first things first. Our good old LadyD tagged me with that letter-to-sixteen-year-old-self thing which The Drummer started. Guess I owe them that, so here goes:

Dear Sach
First, shut up and listen. I know you've already got a bucket load of questions, but read till the end. Then you can ask. I'm you, only went around the sun further 12 times. And I'm supposed to write you a letter, advising you if I feel like it, I'm even allowed to tell you what's gonna happen to you fool in the coming years. Ha, imagine that! I know a shitload of things about your future, what you did or what you didn't, for that matter. So, you wanna know? But that's the problem. Me being you, I know that I didn't get a letter from an older me when I was sixteen. What happened (or what's gonna happen, is it?) really? Either this didn't get delivered to you, or I didn't write it knowing that I'm not gonna get it because I didn't get it. That's confusing right? But, if I throw this away, that'll be the obvious reason why I didn't get it. So, instead, I'm gonna go on and write this and see how you didn't get it.

Ha, now you feeling good don't you? So ready to listen to what you're gonna do? What, you really thought I'm gonna tell you? Good luck with that son, you're not gonna hear a thing! Why would I tell you anything? You'll have to figure out by yourself what to do with your life. I made my decisions, ended up here, and I like being me so I wouldn't wanna change it.

Instead, how about me telling you a few things that's gonna happen in near future that does NOT concern you? Well, let's say they are very less likely to affect you. I know that there are so many things you're wondering about right now, how they are gonna end up and all that. I can tell you a few, but please don't go boasting to everyone that you know the future. Keep them to yourself for god's sake, OK?
  • The world didn't end in, oh well, in any of the years many a lunatic predicted.
  • You're still alive too, but you deduced that already.
  • At 40, Sanath Jayasuriya is still playing cricket, so are Sachin and Murali, but not Warne. And no, Sri Lanka didn't win another World Cup.
  • Neither did All Blacks. I know I know it's unbelievable, but what to do man?
  • Flying cars are still in the future, sorry.
  • So is immortality. Sorry again.
  • Nobody made a dinosaur. Yet.
  • Aliens aren't here yet either. Perhaps they're still on the way. Or maybe Einstein is right after all.
  • No further moon landings and Mars or Venus is a distant dream. Lot of 'no's eh? So much for your enthusiasm.
  • A Sri Lankan will win an Olympic medal. I promise I'm not lying.
  • Politics? Forget that. It'll be the same.
  • There will be 4GB RAMs and 1TB hard disks. I know you don't have the slightest idea what those are, but I also know you're going to try and find out tomorrow. When you do, you'll be surprised but don't tell anyone or you'll look like a fool.
  • Almost everyone will have a mobile phone, and those will fit in your shirt pocket even. Quite easily.
  • Computers too will be pretty common.
  • Time travelling, not yet. Oh wait, so THAT'S why I didn't get this letter!
Ha, that old drummer. He almost fooled us into thinking that these letters will get delivered actually! Lucky I didn't write all the stupid shit you're gonna do or else the whole blogsphere would get to know what a dimwit I was. Whew!

Alright then, see you in twelve years sonny.


I'm supposed to tag two people, but guess that almost every one's tagged by now. Besides, even the drummer has let go of this thing, so why would I try otherwise? Anyway, if you're not tagged yet, take this as a tag for you and go ahead.

So... did you miss me? Or did you go like No shit, the loser's back! when you saw the title? In that case, well, sorry. If it was the first, thank you, I love you and I missed you too. Anyway, this is totally random and out of topic, but I saw a damn funny FB group the other day. I usually meh most of them, but this is just friggin' hilarious. The name of the group is The hilarity of Harry Potter quotes when changing "wand" to "willy". You get what it is, and here are few of the pure gold stuff.
"Harry held Ron's willy as his own was defective."
"Harry rubbed his willy feverishly until white sparks shot out of the end, which earned him a disapproving look from Fleur."
"Don’t put your willy there, boy! roared Moody."
"Ron struggled for a moment before managing to extract his willy from his trousers. “It’s no wonder I can’t get it out, Hermione, you packed my old jeans, they’re tight!” “Oh, I’m so sorry,” hissed Hermione, and Harry heard her mutter a suggestion as to where Ron could stick his willy instead."
And my personal favorite;
"Panting, Harry fell forwards over the hydrangea bush, straightened up and stared around. There were several faces peering through various nearby windows. Harry stuffed his willy hastily back into his jeans and tried to look innocent."
Priceless, aren't they? There are some creative buggers out there I tell you. Well other than that, the break has been good. Had a lot of sleep, played some cricket - oh by the way I think I told you that we entered a final right? But unfortunately it had to be postponed to next March as weather is too cold to be playing cricket these days. It's the end of the Autumn, and last weekend I went to see one of the last places in Japan you can still see some brilliant Autumn leaves. Captured a few on my camera, so you can check them out here.

Later fellas!



  1. I know you don't like T20 cricket, but you gotta admit last night's game was gooood, wasn't it? :D thank goodness the Indians missed all those chances! ;)


    and those quotes are hillarious!!! :D damned pervs! hehehe ;)

  2. Well, it's good that we won, but can't really say the game was good though. We were always going to win save a major fuckup - which we didn't - so it wasn't that interesting for me. Cricket should be a balanced game with equal opportunities for both batting and bowling, but oh well, forget that with T20 frenzy.

    And thanks mate! I will stay indeed!

  3. Welcome back Sach :) and


    LOL :D

  4. You should probably tell your 16yr old self that a Sri Lankan did win an Olympic Medal in 1948 ;-)

    Welcome back!

  5. Cadence, thanks a lot!

    PR, come on that was like two million years ago or something. That doesn't really count.
    And thanks!

  6. how about telling the teeenage you theres no more war in lanka? :)
    and lol on the harry potter group! haha so funny!

  7. Niroshinie, I don't think so. That's a pretty big news and is probably going to affect my life a lot, which I don't want to happen. I like who I am today, VERY MUCH, so no way I'm gonna let that bugger change it! LOL.

    And those are damn funny, I agree!

  8. Love the quotes. And yes, you shouldn’t be spoiling lil’ Sach’s dreams – let him go figure.

    Hope you are having a great holiday in Paradise ;)

  9. SI, LOL but yeah true. I don't wanna spoil the brat.

    And man, I'm still in Japan. I'm going at the end of the year.

  10. Hey... welcome back :)

    And the quotes ARE hilarious :D
