Inside and Out... An attempt to understand technology better...

Just came back from a dinner engagement with someone I met at Orkut. It turned out to be quite interesting. The person in question not only was smart (looks perspective) and exhibiting a good deal of confidence, but she also had a great deal of knowledge on Wines. Plus a very cute smile :)

And as I continued to ask more on the subject, the more I got to know, like:

  • How to identify a good wine from a bad one
  • What all acids go in which kind of wines..
  • Which wines are stored at what temperatures and why (Red at room and White at cold, if I recall correctly)...
  • Some bit on Vodka too..

Ofcourse, we talked about work (btw, she works with a major Internet org.!), hobbies, etc.. basically all the usual stuff, which did help in understanding each other perspectives better (or so I think!).

Finally, saw her off.. and walked back to office.. and am at work (Yes, she was generous enough to offer a lift back, but I preferred to walk...)...

Would I want to meet her again.. hmm... Yes. Would she? I doubt so!  I doubt if our next meeting could be soon :) This one itself materialized after months of persual...

hey gaurav, your last line - i guess you mean 'pursual'. 'perusal' changes the entire meaning real badly ;)
