Suddenly got this tune in my head....................
Kangaroo Kangaroo dutty kangaroo
Sitting on the railway & doing no.2
the no. 2 is dirrty so wash it in the sea
cut it into pieces & hav it 4 ur tea!!

It was one of the old 'dip/dib' songs we used to sing to decide who's the 'denner'. Sounds like crap, rite. Maybe to today's kids. But all d ppl who grew up between mid 90's & 2002 (1st 10-12 years of life i mean ) shud remeber wat me say. If yawl used to play that is. And no, i don't mean like a specific sport, i mean just "play". Those simple games where u just need some other ppl & an area(cud be a building/park/colony/playground) & ur imagination.
The best part about childhood is coming back from skool, dumpin' yo bags & goin down to play............
Another one of those songs i just remembered................
Once a budda met a buddi under a mangotree
Sed the budda to the buddi - will u marry me,
say yes or no?

Lolz,,,,i'm in splits!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nowadays' kids......i dont really see anyone playin those games we used to play. Or playing period(.) Maybe all are in tutions....they go from KG itself! Gawd! Imagine i got bugged goin for tyoots for 10th & 12th & they have their whole skool life left!
And rememba the ~ frock ~ ??
I rarely ever see any kid (girl) wearing that anymore! O my! And i only stopped wearing 'frocks' wen i was like 10 or 11.
Well, today's generation of pre-teens may be taller & less innocent, but am i glad i ain't one of 'em!

PS> AND, they're missing Cartoon Network! And i mean the original one which used to be in English & after 9pm switch back to was an integral part of my even taught me my English!!

Atlast I have sumthin' to blog about!

Guess guess guess...wat is this post about? Ahaaa...the Mumbai terror attacks! Oh nooooo......u've heard enuff about that? So hav I ppl....but wat the heck!

By now ( a week later ) the whole world knows wat happened in Mumbai a week back....about 2 handfuls of terrorists went around terrorizing the ppl of Mumbai. CST most of us have been to. Leopold's most of us have atleast contemplated entering for a chilled beer ...brr...Taj & Oberoi some of us have been to, but all of us have looked at from outside & thought wow! especially in case of Taj. So this time it was too close!!

Can u count the no. of times there's been some or other trouble in this city coz of which u've not been able to go somewhere? It's either floods, bomb scare/blast, Shiv Sena/MNS (it'll take a whole other post bloggin about them!),riots, taxi/train/auto/bus strike, & now....ppl with guns & hand grenades barging into hotels, cafes, hospitals & railway stations.
They say the ppl of Mumbai are cold & heartless, & waste no time in getting on with their lives. A euphamism used is strong, fearless & bouncing back to life as nothing can bog Mumbaikars down. But plz don't give me that crap about the spirit of Mumbai, coz seriously ppl go to work the next day as if nothing has happened, only cauz they have to earn a living.... Who doesn't like an unexpected holiday, right?
Anyhoo, wat i don't understand is how come 300 commandos couldn't overpower like 10-14 terrorists? And why weren't the commandos given the layouts of the hotels? It's not humanly possible for 2 or 3 terrorists to guard each & every entry & exit point of each hotel. So why was it so difficult for the commandos to storm the place & gun them down? Oh yaa, they were worried about hitting a civilian.
And anyhoo 90% of the ppl were killed on the1st night itself. The Marcos & NSGs meanwhile had just woken up & were brushing their teeth! Forget them, the Mumbai police before them didn't know how to use guns & had on useless bullet proof jackets & head gear which could only withstand stone pelting. I guess they expected the terrorists to shoot stones at them, not bullets. And the GRP sitting at CST with their sticks were the first to flee when the terrorists entered & started shooting ppl down.
A 'siege' which goes on for 4 days....where can it happen? Only in India.
If it had been any other country, the situation would have been resolved within an hour or two. But here, it can continue for a week. No wonder this got so much international coverage, much more than 7/11. Main reason - foreigners were also targetted. But the fact is, majority of those who died were Indian.
After this particular episode, noboby's gonna come to Mumbai as a tourist. India's even been named among the top 20 most dangerous countries to visit!
At the end of the day, those of us who've not been directly affected can't deny that we don't feel that thrill of excitement, terror & fear as we watch & wonder...when will it be my turn? After all, there are rumours that a couple of terrorists are still roaming around the streets of Mumbai....


Boomull is a nice friendly dog in Matheran!! Oh yes....he hates that anorexic Mangie & his tail's caked with dirt! How did u find ur way Boomullllllllllllllll???????


Wat u lukin at?

Tipu was one of the dogs cared for by Arvind the cobbler who used to live on the sidewalk of Eros theater. He was pretty mild-mannered, surely wud hav made a good pet. He, along with a couple of other abandoned dogs, used to spend their days & nights with Arvind, giving him affection & protection. Alas....he's dead now. PIP . sori,, RIP.

Russian Ballet

The other day I went to see a performance of the Russian ballet troop Mariinsky Theater at Jamshed Baba Theater at the NCPA near Nariman point. I wouldn't have known about it at all if my sista Lak hadn't seen a mention of it in the newspaper. She wanted to go so me & my mom decided to accompany her.

Well, so after college, Lak & I bought ticket extensions to Churchgate coz we had passes only till Dadar. We were gonna meet mom at Churchgate. By the time we reached Dadar, I had a bangin headache, partly coz of the sun & partly coz of hunger (we'd eaten just a burger each for lunch, which was hours back). As it turned out, we found ourselves short of cash, so we didn't hav the money to buy much to eat. So, we decided first to go over to my gran's at Dadar & get some money & then continue our journey to Churchgate. But then we realized we'd have to stand in another queue to buy tickets coz the extension tickets which we had, hd to be used within an hour, & there was just 5 minutes left. So we wudn't hav time to go to my gran's & then make it back to the train. You wudn't understand all dis rubbish unless u lived in Mumbai & travelled by train.
Anyhoo, we decided to board the next train & this time we had to get into the yucky 2nd class cauz our 1st class pass is only upto Dadar. So, another 20 minutes to Churchgate; I had a gud ol' Crocin on an empty stomach on the way coz i cudn't bear it & then we called mom to ask her where she was; she mumbled something about not coming. But we forced her & she was like ' Ok, ok, see ya at 6 in Churchgate station!' Also, we found out she's short of cash too! And by short, I mean worse than us - she just had a few coins on her. But she had her credit card if we wanted to eat somewhere later.
By this time, I was literally dying of hunger, so I bought a packet o f bourbon biscuits & stuffed myself sitting in one of the shiny new steel bus stops outside the station. When the clock struck 6, we went back to the station & then mom calls to say she'll meet us at Asiatic entrance. So then we walk to Asiatic, & look all around for her but can't spot her. Then my irritated mom calls to ask where the hell we are. We are like where the hell are u? She's like - right here, at the entrance. We like 'where? where? ' And then, we spot her behind some bushes near the Asiatic entrance, & start waving & calling out. At this point, Lak stepped onto a huge steaming pile of shit, bang on the side of the road. You see, in Mumbai, it's red everywhere coz of paan spits & also, heaps of human shit & puddles of urine coz lots of ppl seem to think the roads are their toilets. In other countries, u can kiss in public but not piss in public; but here, in India, u can't kiss in public, but go ahead - u can piss in public.
And, i mean, this particular heap was HUGE. And stinking like the person responsible had loose motions. Lak emptied her full water bottle, but the shit stuck in the cracks & crevices of her ked/floater. (Thankfully, only one foot dipped into the mass of shite).
Now, we were already getting late ( the show was to start at 6.30), & there we were, waiting while Lak scraped her right leg on various grass patches, rocks & brick walls, to no avail. Finally, we decided to forget it & get in a cab to reach our destination - NCPA. But before getting in, we had to hurriedly fumble & check to see if we had atleast 20 bucks. Fortunately, we had around 40 bucks in all ( counting all three of us ). On the way, we discussed the best way to get rid of the shit pieces. We neither had an extra pair of shoes, nor socks. So, we cudn't throw Lak's shoes. How can she walk barefoot? Then, we thought - NCPA is a posh place, so their loo must have a handshower. So when hit with a force of water, the shits wud probably fall off.
By now, the shit had become caked & her shoe was stenching to high heaven. Anyhoo, we finally got there, & believe it or not, there was a huge crowd, waiting a t the entrance to get in. Surprisingly, entry for the ballet performance was free, & u just needed to get passes to attend. Mass after mass of hi fi ppl, arriving in their hi fi cars, waving their passes & noses turned up; were allowed to enter. But the rest of us, who'd just turned up, hoping to get passes on the spot, had to wait on the sides. The guard manning the entrance said that if there were any seats left after the hi & mighty with passes had passed thru', us low & powerless ppl cud enter. So, after wat seemed like hours, w e rushed thru' & ran our way up the stairs & into the auditorium. We found seats in the very last row. Soon, all the seats seemed filled up, & we cud even see some ppl standing. I cud see many foreigners & dear lil ole Parsi ladies in the crowd. And yes, it was a crowd. Barring one here or there, all the seats in the auditorium, which can accomodate 1000-odd ppl were taken.
The show'd already started. Now Lak cudn't possibly get up & go to the loo, risking the chance of losing her seat & anyway, the show'd already started.
Thankfully, I had deo/scent/parfum with me & she had to settle with discreetly spraying a lot over & around her right foot/shoe.
So, on stage, there was this waifish girl doin cool & weird things with her legs. A guy soon joined her & they did many intricate leaps & prances. It was all very different from wat we usually see. There were a few more performances by different pairs to follow. They were all pretty (yup, even the men) & most of the stuff they did was awesome. The gurlz were either in shiny tutus or sweet frocks/dresses. The boyz were either in fitting white slacks, flaming harem-type pants or other leetle bits of colorful outfits ( a lil fruity), depending on wat they were portraying. One of the dances was graceful, the next seductive, another energetic & one quirky. A few words that come to mind are elastic, rubbery, boneless, flexible. they were always on their toes. Just looking at them made my legs feel tired. It was quite a short show, about 1.5 hrs. Though they were given bouquets at the end, the dancers were not introduced.
Overall the show was a hit - unique & enjoyable. I don't think Mumbai gets to witness such programs too often.
Anyhoo, continuing where i left off about the bad things about the day..........
Now & then, inside the theater, during the show, the yucky smell of u-know-wat used to waft up to our noses. But somehow we ignored it. then, once the show ended, we went to the loos, where there was, as expected, a queue. When it was finally her turn, Lak found no handshower, & thus no freedom from the shit. So, we trudged on, caught a bus to Churchgate station, thinking we'd first go to Gaylord's fot a bite.While walking there, we saw a man walking his 2 dogs - one a big black lab & the other a tiny fluffy poodle! The latter was soooooooooooo cute....the way it was running to keep up with its master. We thought it wud get blown away by the wind, it was so tiny! Anyhoo, we enter the bakery at Gaylord & start picking out wat we wanted on a tray. I said at the beginning to check if they accept credit cards at the bakery, but my mom said - 'Oh of course they will! It's ok, don't ask.' So we go ahead & fill the tray with mouth-watering goodies (too sinful to name) & top it off with 3 yummy chocolate muffins. And then, guess wat, they say at the counter - 'Only cash'.
Dejected, we walked out of there, wondering where credit cards (CCs)are accepted, cauz we all were unbearably hungry by now. We decide to try our luck at Satkar, & trudge there, my mom feeling guilty when i say that the image of that tantalizing tray is still stuck in my mind. At Satkar, we confirm that they accept CCs, & plonk ourselves down in the inner AC area. Five minutes later, after placing our orders, the shit smell hits us again. By now, Lak was really sick & tired of keeping her right foot down firmly on the ground all the time(even during the show). So then we thought of going outside & sitting at a table in the non-enclosed, non-AC area of the restaurant. But alas, they accept CCs only inside.
Lak was thinking how she cud eat, the smell was making her puke. Then, I got one of my bright ideas & suggested that my mom & sis go over to Asiatic & buy shoes over there, provided they accept CCs. My mom argued that it was late, so they wud have closed. But I had seen it was open, when we passed it on our way to the restaurant. So the 2 of them made their way there, while i sat at the restaurant, waiting for our food. But they returned within 10 minutes - Asiatic had shut shop by the time they got there.
So we ate our dosas quickly, holding our breaths. Finally, we were back in the train, on our way to Dadar. We made a stop at gran's for some cash & then caught a cab to my place. On the way my mom said she knew a shorter route than the one we usually take, & forced the driver to take it, though the driver & myself were against it. So it had to happen - we got stuck in a traffic jam, & ended up paying the guy the amount we wud have paid if we'd taken the usual route - and this after we decided to get off in the middle of the jam & walk a little way & then catch another cab once the roads became clear! The driver of the 2nd cab we took forced us to share it with another passenger. I hate to share cabs, but we had no other options in the dead of the night. As is turned out, the driver was a little crazy in the head - kept muttering something & threatening to take wrong turns!
Well, we finally reached home, threw Lak's shoes & thought - "Was 1.5 nice hours worth about 5 horrible hours?"

Yesssss!! Obama won!!!!!!!

I'm sooooooo glad Obama won! Since the past 2-3 months there's been so much hype over the elections, & i'd started watching CNN & all. Since the beginning i've been an Obama fan. Well, one of the reasons is that he's black. So, now we know that the American ppl have changed...for the better.
He had everthing "against" him; forget the fact that he's black - his middle name is Hussein & last name rhymes with Osama! But now it's known that even if white America alone wud have voted, he'd have still probably won.
The most overused word to describe this election is probably 'historic'. Pretty much the whole world is celebrating his victory. But it's so sad that his grandma died just before he got elected. But he almost always manages to look calm, cool & worries. Now he has to live up to lots of expectations.....gotta save the day. I'm sure he will.
Anyhoo, i gotta hand it to John Mccain; he accepted defeat quite graciously. If it had been Sarah Palin, it wud hav been a different story sorry speech altogether.
Hmm now i wonder wat news the media will have, now that the election's over. Guess they'll continue dissing the Republicans...
Again, i'm so happy barack Obama won!

Flying - aaah.....i love it! Maybe cauz i've done it only like twice in my life, and the first time i was a very leetle kid so i don't remember it anyways. But the 2nd time was quite recently, when i went on a trip to Goa with my mom & sis. Believe it or not, it took less time to fly there ( around 45 mins ) than it takes to travel by road or rail within Mumbai, say from the suburbs to the south. Anyhoo, i think it totally matters who ur travelling with - it does determine if u will have a fun experience or not.
Of course, my flight lasted quite a short while. I guess longer flights wud be a bore. So, we boarded the flight & of course fighted a bit over who gets the window seat, & then listened as one of the flight attendants told us wat to do in case of emergencies. I gotta say, the air hostesses on my particular flight didn't look anyting exceptional, like they're portrayed as usually. But this depends on the airline u r flying with.
Also, some airlines serve free alcohol & stuff, but unfortunately not the one i travelled on. Or may b that's only on international airlines...i dunno. So, then came the takeoff. As expected, i got that feeling of my stomach dropping but surprisingly my ears didn't get that blocked. Take offs are definitely more fun than landings! While landing, we felt a bump or 2 during touchdown, & then we were cruising on the runway for a pretty long time. Almost feels like ur sitting in a car.
Hmm. the view.......the city got smaller & smaller( quite ugly cauz of too many buildings) till u cud only see the sky. The sky gets pretty boring after a while, same old blue with fluffs of cloud here n there. But the runway while touchdown looked great cauz it was night time & all lighted bordered by diamonds. But the scene during the take off from Goa was nice.
Ok, now i'll tell u the best part of the plane ride.....the food! I don't exactly remember wat they served, but i can't forget the chocolate mudpie/pastry. It was soooooooooooooooooo delish. I was really tempted to ask 4 one more, but dint. Sigh. i hoped that we wud get to eat it again during the return flight, but it was not to be. Sigh again. All in all (damn, i haven't used that phrase since a long time) the snackies were kool.
One thing i wanted to do, but totally forgot was to check out the loo. Like, mayb i wud have caught a couple in there, like in the movies!
So, that was my flying experience, pretty relaxing & kool; tho another time i felt i'm flying ( in a totally different sense tho ) is when galloping on a horse. That also i hav dun v.rarely, like the last time was abt 4 yrs's so much fun but it's not 4 the wud u like to run with a human on ur back?
Something to remember on a long flight is to get up & stretch ur legs every 2 hrs or so, cauz there's an increased risk of thrombosis whenever u sit in one place for too long without moving. Also, fasten ur seatbelts during takeoff, landing & turbulence.

Who You Gonna Vote For?

Obama, rite? He wud be gr8. Yeah yeah i know i dont even live in the US of A but gotta tell ya it's anyday more exciting than wat happens around here.....if i was an American citizen i wud totally vote 4 Obama..the choice is obvious. John Mccain is old enuf to be in an old age home. And c'mon wud u want a Prez dats closer to 50 or one dats closer to 70? And Obama's gettin much more publicity n he always luks so smily n cute n spotless n sharp...atleast he knows wat to wear. According to me he's all cool. He'll definitely hav d support of young America. If he duz win which i'm sure he will, he'll be d first black president of America n dat'll show dat the american ppl really hav changed for the better......i mean c'mon his name even rhymes wit Osama!!

They hardly show stuff like swimmin divin gymnastics but keep showin boxin wrestling fencing sailin rowin which is not dat interesting....n half the time they show ugly ppl analyzing stuff rather than actually showing the events. And weneva thers sum indian in the event they switch to indian commentators droning in hindi...sheesh...truly hopeless.

The Dark Knight

This one's all about the special effects. The story or really get it. I would have thought they'd cast Aaron Eckhart as Batman. Christian Bale just duzn't stand out. And he speaks in a really weird voice thru'out. Check out his mouth when he's talking...damn weird.
I haven't seen any other Batman movie or read any of the comics. I went to see this movie cauz there was so much hype & everyone was saying it's so awesome. But main reason i went to see it was that it was Heath Ledger's last finished role. I mean, how cud i not see it? And true, the movie was bearable only cauz of him. The parts where he was not there was like so boring. The Joker is hot!! Damn it y did he die......
I really can't write out a summary cauz the story duzn't make much sense anyways. The batmobile its s'posed to be indestructible rite? wateva......n wateva happened to Robin........
Gawd n Maggie Gyllenhaal cant act. She's an older version of Kirsten Dunst but SHE CANT ACT. I cannot believe she's Jake's sista..i mean, how can the 2 even be related??
So if u aint a fan of Heath Ledger, don't watch this movie.

Sunday, July 27, 2008


Ok continuing where i left off........

GARNISH - Another place in King's Circle, the food here is cheap, fast n easy. Well, not that cheap but cheaper than Classic. (if my memory's not failin me). It's oily food, but satisfactory n bearable when ur hungry. They also have an outer (no ac) & inner ac area. But it tends to be crowded. GO THERE

MACHU PICHU - This place is one of the eateries in the Hub in Goregaon east. Hearing the name ( it's a place in South America) i thought aaah this shud be gud. But it turns out it's not really. Everything is quite expensive but the portion is very less. I used to like their cold salad Mama Mia but even that has lost its appeal the last time i went there. But the Chole Bature is fine. Okay, if u wanna go there go maybe once but u won't find it great. C'mon even the ketchup they serve there is a cheap brand which tastes gawd awful & i mean, the place is empty, ppl got sense. DONT GO THERE

YOGI - This is in Sion. It is as yuck as it sounds. Other than their pineapple raita, even the rubbish from the dump truck tastes better. DONT GO THERE

NEW YORKER - I'm talkin bout the one in King's Circle. It's quite expensive & mostly u'll find the inhabitants of King's Circle or Matunga so that may be a mood dampner. But whatever they have that's drippin with cheese is good. So GO THERE

RUBY TUESDAY - The food is awright but believe me, it's expensive. Not somewhere a non loaded person wud go to every month. The service is okay (atleast the one at nariman pt) & their drinks are fine. GO THERE

UNCLE'S KITCHEN - This is a Chinese eatery in Malad, & by Chinese i don't mean Indianized stuff, but the real deal. And surprisingly, the food is very affordable. The only bad thing is that they don't serve desserts. I say GO THERE

Feed Stuffs

I thought i'd write a couple lines bout some of the restaurants that i've been to in Mumbai.
Starting with, of course, the place i always head to.........
OVENFRESH - Their only outlet is in Dadar west & since around a year they've even turned vegetarian. If u feel like continental (pizza pasta sandwich nachos tacos croissants calazone pastries muffins drinks n other exotic feed ) head over. They also serve sizzlers (cough cough). It is a lil expensive but it's worth it. And their bread is exquisite. Aahh salivate salivate. Try to get a seat in the inner area where the walls are funny n funky. But the outer area is also fine if a bit clinical. GO THERE

And now, the other place i always head to.............
GYPSY CORNER - Also in Dadar near Shivaji Park, i'm only talkin bout it, not Gypsy Chinese. So this is also vegetarian. It serves some Maharashtrian stuffs with weird names. I aint a fan of that. It also serves some conti stuff such as pizza, mashed potatos (ha ha), n u get the point. Eat these at ur own risk. If u r there and u must eat conti, then i'd eat the pizza. U'll find it good at first but after many visits & many pizzas u'll get bored of it. But Gypsy Corner is my other fave restaurant cauz of their sev puri. i die 4 it. But since i hate spicy i always tell them to put v. less spice or none at all. I'd suggest u do the same if u wanna enjoy urs. Top that off with one of their ices ( me i always go with hot fudge nut sundae tho i've tried all) & ur gud 2 go. I esp luv their dessertes cauz they giv a pot of choc sauce separately. And it's not too expensive no. not like OF. So GO THERE

Okay now for a bad review. I'll only write a line or 2 from now............
SAI VEG WORLD - It's in Goregaon east bang outside the station. One word to describe this place is pretentious. The food is overpriced & okay, maybe after the first bite u'll say 'hmm...not bad' but after that, believe me, u'll rush home & puke. And the stuff they've got lined outside the restaurant looks yucky & oily and if ur desperately hungry u have to get a coupon from 1 place & the food from another. At the most you can grab a cuppa (of nescafe, dat is) tho even dat's overpriced (20 bux). DONT GO THERE

Ok really now i'll write less...............
5 SPICE - It's somewhere near Fort. It's authentic Chinese all the way. From the waitresses dressed in suity kimonos (wait..isn't that Jap??) to the decor to obviously the food. Chinese food is asoociated with oil amino acid n all but tryooo blyooo Chinky food lovers will like it here. I dunno, it's expensive but crowded even on a rainy day. Well okay ur shit the next day might be orange, but GO THERE

CAFE MOCAMBO - It's also somewhere in sobo. To tell u the truth, i don't really remember anything much about this place but i vaguely remember i was quite happy steppin out. It's expensive but cozy with nice drinks & pastries. And the thing i like bout restaurants such as these is that they display the menu outside so it wouldn't lead to the waiters/staff getting embarrased. Unlike the next place on the list. So GO THERE

CLASSIC - Well this place in King's Circle has a downstairs non air conditioned area & an upstairs AC area. What can i say...u eat here, u think ur stomach's full, later u get a stomach ache, ur left with a hole in ur pocket & a bad taste in ur mouth. But i have to say this place can be deceptive. Don't go there unless ur really hungry, have cash & are too tired to walk anywhere else. Try the cheese sandwich is all i say. Once i went there with a cuple of friends, we weren't really that hungry but we climbed all the way up to the AC place, sat down, asked 4 the menu, had a sip of water, opened the menu, and looking at it we really dint feel like wastin money out here. So we walked out again. Ha ha. Atleast we got a few laughs out of that. So DONT GO THERE

Movie Review - U Turn

Saw this one the other day. Wanted 2 sleeeeeeeeep but then it had Sean Penn, Billy Bob Thorton (angie's ex), John Voight (angie's dad), JLo.
So this guy Bobby (sean penn) owes some gangsta lots of money but doesn't pay him back on time so gets two of his fingers cut off. This was last week. Now, he's got some of the cash & he's on his way to California but his car breaks down in the dreary desert of Arizona. So he takes a u turn & goes to a town called Superior to get his car fixed. He finds a mechanic, an annoying a-hole (Billy Bob) & leaves his car with him. He goes to town to get a drink & meets Grace (JLo). She of course invites him to her place & then her hubby comes home n all hell breaks lose. But then, the hubby reveals to Bobby that he actually hates her & offers him money to kill her. Bobby laughs it off & goes his way.
As the day goes on, his luck only gets worse & the more people he meets the more weird & crazy Superior seems. In the end, he loses his cash, so makes the deal with the hubby but then is not able to kill her ( fucks her instead). And then she reveals that the hubby's actually her dad & she hates him for wat he did to her mom n her & desperately wants to get out of Superior. So they in turn hatch a plan to kill the hubby cauz she knows he has tons of cash & where he hides it.
Finally she's the one that kills everybody & in the end everone dies anyways. Okay, u might have not understood anyting from wat i've written but lemme just say its a gud un. It's really frustrating for Bobby thru'out cauz Superior really is full of psychos that drive him nuts. Its a crazy movie. watch it.

PS> I dint really like JLo in this movie. dunno why. But i loved everyting bout her (character, look) in monster in law. isn't that the one where she's the dogwalker.....But i liked the others

Energetics - Lucky's own

Recently, a bitch (female dog) in my friend's building/colony gave birth to 8 puppies. She (Lucky) is very anorexic with her ribs showing.
This scenario reminds me of a thing which happened near my own place a couple of years ago. One of my fav bitches on the block (also v.thin) gave 8 pups too. We took care of them during the first few crucial weeks. They needed it cauz the mom was quite uncaring when it came to her puppies.
So anyways, this is about Lucky's own.
Fatty is black & white and of course, quite the fattest one. It stands out from the lot coz the rest are either brown, brown n white, black or greyish-black. It's the most adventurous & stubborn. If u wake it from a deep slumber, it will sit in one corner with an angry irritated look on its face - What's ur problem? Why did u wake me?
Chinky is brown in color with a puggish face & chinky eyes. It is the next fattest fur ball & yeah, i know this' one's a male. Its one of those pups which merges in with the rest. It's o-cho-cute!!
Betty is choc brown & white with flappy ears. It's a leeetle weak with a confused look on its face. One word that comes to mind when i think of it is
~ HAZE ~ BTW, Betty's a boy.
Tup, a brown n white with black nose, is one of the weak ones, but tends to get naughty. Try to feed it with a dropper & it goes SQUIRM SQUIRM....SQUIRM SQUIRM. Also, its eyes are glazed over. Hmm......
Goldie is the white of the batch (of cookies. Ha Ha. Sorry. puppies) with light brown (u can say cream) & white skin & a pink nose & blue eyes. It's damn naughty & irritates all the others. But when it falls asleep (which it tends to do a lot) it sleeps like a baby. It's quite a tiny bundle though.
Mouse is almost black & a heavy bundle. It looks rather like a rat though. It's my fav one. Tho i think if it had its way, it wud have chosen to be a ram. Go figure. It's a dreamer & a fast grower. Don't grow up so fast Mouse!
Biscuit is the smallest. Sometimes i take it in my fist & have to fight the urge to squish it like those soft squeegies u squeeze to let off ur stress. Aaaaaaaaaaaww......... Biscuit is grey & most of the time it just sits there. And when the mom Lucky comes once in a while to feed them, poor Biscuit can't even reach her teats ( when they're in standing position) coz she's too short. When they're all lying down & feeding, she gets crushed under all the other puppies in the mad rush for the teats. Damn it, she's my fav too.
Lakshmi (last but not the least) is not a cow or a house help (search me) but a grey pup too. She's always ready to drink, eat, sleep, laze about & generally be merry. But boy, can she be fussy. Or am I confusing it with one of the others? Gawd these puppies muddle up my brains.
Sorry, lakshmi's dead now. (roadkill)

Movie - Requiem for a dream

This movie is about 4 drug addicts living in Brooklyn, & how they live trying to get drugs. That's the only thing on their mind & they will do anything to get their drugs.
Sara Goldfarb is a lonely old lady who eats chocolates & watches TV the whole day. Her son Harry is a junkie & deals drugs along with his friend Tyrone who also does drugs. So does his girlfriend Marion who has dreams of opening her own clothes store.
Sara gets the news that she's going to be on her fav TV game show so she wants to become thin so that she can fit into her precious red dress. She goes to a quack who prescribes her dieting pills that're actually speed & soon she gets hooked. She starts hallucinating & ends up in a mental hospital. Her story's the saddest.
Harry ends up with an amputated arm & Tyrone lands in jail. Marion has to have sex with the drug supplier 2 get drugs. And so the cycle continues.......
They're all basically good people but once they got addicted, they dint have a chance to do anything with their lives. It just goes to show that anyone can get addicted. Ellen Burstyn who plays Sara is really good, especially in the scene where she's explaining to her son that she doesn't really have anything much to live for.
This movie's damn scary. It's for those who've never done drugs & maybe just crossed their minds and it's for those who have tried it, but are not yet hooked but on the brink. Once you get hooked, u can't control it.

Movie review - Love Wrecked

I saw this movie Love Wrecked yesterday. It's one of those funny in a lame way movies, starring the very irritating Amanda Byrnes as Jenny; n also 2 chakas/eunuchs whose names i don't know (one is her best friend & the other's a rockstar). So Jenny & her best friend who secretly has feelings for her go to the Caribbean ( ya right) to work at a hi-fi resort out there, which happens to be 'rocksta' Jason Masters' fav resort (ha ha). Predictably, he drops in with his weird entourage & stuff happens & Jenny finds herself in a deserted island, marooned with her idol. But then she discovers that they're actually not, but then doesn't tell Jason so that she can spend time alone with him coz she's too tempted.
In the end, once she gets to know him, she's a lil disappointed coz he doesn't live up to the image she had in mind. Anyways, she ends up, again, predictably, with her best friend. So this movie turns out to have quite a dumb twist. I guess it's one of the 'leave ur brain behind & enjoy' kinda movies. like Dude whre's my car. dat one was ridiculously funny. dis one's like timepass. I always end up watching such corny crappy shit it's just so addictive..

Bye bye Jason Castro

Jason Castro the guy who stands out got voted out of the show today. He was the best.......coz he just dint care & he was just so cool. His performance the day b4 was AWESUM. It was like he's least bothered & he knows how 2 hav fun. n his reply " I was thinkin bout marley!" n man, he purposely 4got the lyrics.. so cool.Randy & Simon were so pissed off, they must've bin like y did we keep him in the top 12! I guess they just don't get him. He's ssoo laidback n relaxed, a far cry from the others like the hi strung banshee Sayeesha or whatever the frig her name is. Gawd n dat David Archuleta is so constipated. If Jason had been the idol, it wud've bin like america's got sense & not gone 4 the same old predictable n boring...wateva. Obviously, i'm not gonna watch the show now coz he's gone, i guess he wanted 2 go out anyways cuz dat environment dont suit him. Nyways, Jason u freak, u keep d dreads n i want ur attitude n u shuffle on ya.
PS> Go..go..Jason Castro!!

Replace the regular incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs (cfl).

Clean or replace air filters on your air conditioners.

Use a clothesline instead of a dryer whenever possible like in summer & winter.

Turn off electronic devices like TV, computer, DVD player when you're not using them.
