nah, nope, no, nada

You have to choose one flavor that your sense of taste will no longer be able to distinguish. Sweet, sour, bitter, salty, umami, spicy (not a taste per se, but we’re generous): which one do you choose to lose?

I love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love  love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love  love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love  love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love love to eat.

So I guess I have made it pretty clear that I’m not going to chose to lose any sense of taste! 😛 😀

 

Faking it

The phrase in play here is: Something Old.

 

Interviewer: Do you have any collectibles of your earlier life, the life before your fame?

She: Yeah, I do have! Give me a minute.

 

She took a break from the interview and walked down the stairs of her palatial house, where everything was neat, new and beautiful. Entering the watchman’s house, she ransacked his son’s toy box. Finally she found a rugged tattered teddy bear. Examining it with her expert eyes, she plucked out a few strands of its cotton fur from its ears, removed one of its eyes and twisted its nose.

“Perfect! This looks like something old”, she exclaimed.

The little boy watched her with tears in his eyes while his mother looked at her surprised.

She gave him a look, “I will need this only for an hour”, and she replied sternly, walking away leaving him heartbroken amidst the sounds of the sharp clacking of her heels.

We all have strange relationships with punctuation — do you overuse exclamation marks? Do you avoid semicolons like the plague? What type of punctuation could you never live without? Tell us all about your punctuation quirks!

I wasn’t the kind who would be over obsessed with punctuation; however facebook changed it all for me.

Post this image that had been widely circulated, I make it a point to be very careful about the placement of the apostrophe.

Here are few more examples of the same and of the commas too! (I’m toooo lazy to write on a Sunday!) 😛 😀

Where the ink flows (or the binary)

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/writing-space/

Where do you produce your best writing — at your desk, on your phone, at a noisy café? Tell us how the environment affects your creativity.

I’m currently pursuing a course that requires me to undergo a three year long internship. 😦

Some days I’m rendered jobless, credit to my over effectiveness at work the previous day and other days, I am vexed up and need a break. It is during these times that I prefer to immerse myself in the world of blogs. I peacefully write whatever comes to mind, often something inspired by my daily life or by things that I have read on other blogs/ facebook. I pour my concentration on the little alphabets on the keyboard and let the creative juices flow against the slow murmuring of my colleagues or the occasional office chatter/gossip.

However, I do make a point to keep a work document open with my hands swiftly moving to Alt+Tab, just in case. At times if I’m flooded with work at office then I write after coming back home, with the faint sound of the television news channels in the backdrop or the occasional whistle/grinding sounds emerging from the kitchen over a glass of hot milk with bournvita 🙂

The Best Company

“The person who shows the least emotions is the one who controls the relationship.”

 

I had read this quote way back on facebook, the first thing that struck me was this is crap. However as I tried to find sense in it, so did I understand that it is true!

Just in case you are in a relationship, take a step back and think. Think of the times when you were all whiny/ excited and your better half put his/her stern foot down. What did it result in? Either the thing on which you were so excited about got cancelled or you went with the thing but not before you were glared and almost shouted at for being excited at trivial things. Incase none of the above happened, your partner is right on the brim of breaking out into doing the above two, and hence it becomes of utmost importance that you take note of these!

Every time that I introspect my previous relationships to figure out why I was the one crying and wailing though I wasn’t the one that cheated, I’m flabbergasted at the results.

At times we get too attached (especially women) that we put out all our emotions and feelings in one basket, treat it the only thing worth any priority in our entire life. And surprisingly enough when the relationship ends or when our better halves are busy in their own lives, we find ourselves at a loss of things to do, almost lost. Hence begin the excessive concentration in the relationship which ultimately goes downhill.

Since, I do not have many friends with whom I hang out or text regularly ( I detest whatsapp, facebook chatting, any form of chatting unless it isn’t face to face and really required) and my better half has recently shifted a thousand kilometers away from where I live, I have been trying my best to spend more time with myself.

To either go out alone or watch a movie alone or hog (I love food) or just stare at the fan on the ceiling, I have discovered that I love myself!

All the emotions and feelings which would otherwise be flooded by me in the life of my boyfriend are now being utilized to improve myself, which is a much wiser way.

Afterall you are your best company!  🙂

We all scream for Ice-cream!! :D

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/flavor-32/

A local ice cream parlor invites you to create a new wacky flavor. It needs to channel the very essence of your personality. What’s in it?

Firstly I’m a huge ice-cream maniac, I for one believe that there is nothing that ice cream can’t solve, Bad mood? No problem ice cream to the rescue, Celebration? Share it over a cup of ice cream. It is something that can be enjoyed by all the age groups, in all the seasons. Having frozen ice cream while it’s raining outside, has its own fun!

Secondly I would be plenty honored if there would be a flavor based on my personality.

It would be lined on the look of a cassata, where in the flavours would be as follows:

  •  Custard-Apple – Trust me this is not everyone’s cup of ice cream! But that is how I am, unconventional and you wouldn’t dare mess with me.
  •  Butterscotch with roasted almonds – After you cross the first hurdle to getting to know me, it’s not going to be a smooth ride.
  •  Blackberry – I’m someone with weird tastes in things, so that would challenge you enough to question if you would have a bite of the third layer  or beat a retreat.
  •  Chocolate – Finally the final layer, because just like chocolate I’m both bitter but sweet.

Vending Happiness :)

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/vending-wishes/

Soft drinks, electronics, nutrient-free snacks — you can get all of those from a vending machine. But what type of vending machine is sorely needed but doesn’t yet exist? Share your automated retail fantasies with us!

 

I think more often than not when I’m in trouble/pain, the last thing that I’m looking is for is advice. We have lost the ability to listen, we don’t hear people out. We listen to them to reply and not to understand. Most of us don’t share our woes with people because of the fright of consequences like, would my secret be safe? What would they think about me?

Additionally it is easier sharing things with a stranger, someone who doesn’t have preconceived notions about you and is not quick to judge, and someone who won’t use your secret as a means to take advantage or spread gossip.

If I could create a vending machine, I would make one where anyone can walk up and dial a number which would connect them to another random person in the globe who also is using the machine at the same time. A medium also would be installed so that you can see each other but that is only if you wish too. And just in case nobody else is using it, then it would automatically get connected to the “spread happiness team” (customer service) who would try their best to listen you out or help you.

Now, you have a stranger in front of you to whom you could pour out your heart and talk, and get advice too! Further another feature also would be included with the buttons: Happy/Sad. So anyone who is feeling sad, gets connected to a person who has pressed happy and the sad person could share his/her sorrows and the happy person could cheer him up!

From where I come poverty and impoverishment is a big issue. There would be another feature which lets you pay money for things like a cup of tea, fruits, milk, bun etc. which could then be used by a poor person. When he would go to the vending machine, he will find the items for which money has been paid and could vend out the same according to his needs. This will result in not only charity but the fact that a person need not go hungry to sleep.

After all a smile is a curve that sets things straight!  🙂
