Yeah.....I'm back.
Finally convinced my mum to un-ground me.......whoopee.
Since I've been gone almost the whole of October....this post is gonna be about my tirades (or their lack thereof) during the most non-uneventful *sheesh* months of the year...... :D

October 1 : Holiday !!!!....Sunday....
Stayed at home and worried about the PTA on 12th.

October 2 : Gandhi Jayanti.Lal Bahadur Shastri's birth anniversary.Dussehra.Durga Puja. Chacha's birthday.Holiday again.

October 3 : School re-opened after the so-called Dussehra break. I mean, look at it. Saturday had to be a holiday anyway. Ditto for Sunday. Monday had a horde of stuff that made it a holiday thrice over. The school authorities wanted to get rid of us after the exams so they gave Friday a hol and called the whole thing a Dussehra break. We're being oppressed, I tell you.

October 4 : Got back most of our papers.In other words, flirted dangerously close with death.

October 5 : Got back the rest of our papers. Pigged out on Shaloma's birthday cake.

October 6 : Moi got a holiday 'cause I didn't wanna go for the school trip.Rishikesh.Sheesh.I have better things to do.

October 7 : Went to see John Tucker Must Die with Hooper, Nangia, Meha and Hooper's cousin Vanessa 'cause we were the only peeps not in Rishikesh.Reached PVR an hour before it began. Roamed about in an empty market.Turned out that we were the only insane creatures who roamed about in markets that hadn't even opened. Saw Barista's shutters being lifted.Barged right in. Made a fool of ourselves by ordering muffins and ice cream at 10 30 am (yes, AM!!).
Somehow spent an hour there. Went back to PVR. The movie turned out to be pretty good...*thongs*....Tried to decide where to have lunch.In the end, decided on the McD's at GK 'cause Hooper and Vanessa said the stuff at the Saket one sucked.I didn't know the food tasted different at all of them.Whatever.Had food.Circled (actually, squared) the market thrice.Got bored.Went to Nangia's place.Played Monopoly. Technically, I won but they refused to admit it.Went back home.Got bored.

October 8 : Was a Sunday.Went to the library.Got four books.Read them.

October 9 : Another dreary Monday. Did nothing except initiate a li'l revolt err....revolt against the Physics teacher :D

October 10 : Went to school.Came back.Went to school again at 5.Went to Rashtrapati Bhavan for a showcase by the President's Bodyguards.Came back to school impressed.Went back home.Was also Karva Chauth.

October 11 : Spent the entire day worrying about the PTA.SOS.SOS.SOS.SOS.SOS.SOS......

October 12 : PTA day. Someone in Dad's office got seriously ill 'cause of dengue, so he couldn't go to school to get my report card.Oh,well.

October 13 : The major fiasco day.In more than one way.Went to school.Went to DPS Mathura Road for a quiz.Didn't qualify (what's new?).BUT this time (as at SGC) ...should have.We got more marks than two of the six qualifying teams.Sanskriti got double the qualifying marks.Neither we nor them qualified.Went to the quizmaster and asked (as politely as we could in spite of our seething anger) what the qualifying marks were. His reply? Ahem."I'm not at liberty to disclose that information."Oh, and was it any surprise that 4 of the 6 qualifying teams were from DPS?
Fiasco number two.Came back home.Was my sis's b'day.Moi was the official DJ.The official waitress.The official clown.And the official dumbass.The party got over with more than a few hiccups.Moi...bored after everything, logged on the net.As always, no one was online.Logged off.Mum came.Shouted at me for not cleaning up some stuff and doing velapanti on the net instead.Was about to open my mouth to retaliate when I heard the next bit of her speech.Apparently, I was grounded.Couldn't go online ever again till I learnt how to behave.Well...my fault I didn't add official servant to my list of titles.

October 14 : Democracy Day at school. 10th and 11th got an off.

October 15 : Sunday.Need I say more?

Otober 16 : Bunked school legally.Went to place called Constitutional Club for a seminar on the Make Poverty History campaign organised by SCS.Was pretty um...enaging, particularly this one play kinda thing by these people from Andhra Pradesh.Me and Nangia had a most um-intellectual discussion on it. The actual discussion is too colourful to be written about here.

October 17 : Quizzotica was suppossed to take place today but got cancelled. AM and SD venting out their anger at the lack of intelligence in school on the Quiz Club.

October 18 : Another hellish day at school.NO free periods.Double Math.Chem.Phy.Geo.Bio.Double Eng.Hindi.*groan*

October 19 : Last day of school b4 Diwali hols.School got over at 11 30 *woot*

October 20 : Mum made me clean my room b4 Diwali.Cleaned my room.Found a lot of stuff I thought I'd thrown.Like this scrap on paper which was privy to my boredom in one of last year's English classes:

All the world's a stage.
And all men and women are merely players.
oops...stage fright.

October 21 : Diwali.Did not burn crackers. Did not play cards. Looks like I might get a halo next.

October 22 : Goverdhan Puja.Didn't know how I was supposed to celebrate it.Didn't.

October 23 : Monday blues.Wait.There was no school today.Umm......whatever.

October 24 : Bhai Duj.Made some easy cash :P

October 25 : Id-ul-fitr.Or was it the next day?

October 26 : Id again.....Maybe.
Oh, and school re-opened.
Apparently...everyone in school knows about our class' crusade against the Phy teacher.*double woot*

October 27 : For the first time this year, free Physics period. The teacher was absent.Maybe she's absconding.Hmm......

October 28 : Saturday.Woke up at 5 (AM!!!).Went to school.Volleyball practice.Returned back home with a pair of torn jeans.

October 29 : Woke up at 4 30 (yes....AM!!!).Went to school again.Turned out I'd reached half an hour b4 practice.Pumped up the volume on my sister's iPod (which I'd sneaked :D) and took 8 rounds of the entire court.Discovered a way to enter the canteen even when it was locked (no kidding!!!!) Lost a practice match to SVISG (the name's too long to write :P).Came back home with a pair of legs in no working condition.

October 30 : The volleyball tournament for which we'd been practising got cancelled because of the trader's bandh.*mutters a bunch of explicitives*
Priyadarshini Mattoo's killer got the death sentence.*triple woot*Public power lives.Unlike Dumbeldore, the Indian judiciary is not dead.*high fives an imaginary hand in the air*

October 31 : Trader's strike continues.Took an off from school.Got MAJORLY bored at home.Oh, well......that's life.

*v-dha falls asleep on the keyboard after taxing her brain so much.
post a comment to wake her up!!!!*

Buffoon-ing around....

Just a teenie-weenie filler.

Was IMing Shall-we, the almighty football worshipper.
Called her a buffoon.
She thought I meant Buffon.
Moi rolled my eyes.
Tried to explain what buffoon was.
Finally, had to beseech the great Merriam-Webster to sort me out..

One entry found for buffoon.
Main Entry: buf·foon

Pronunciation: (")b&-'fün
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle French bouffon, from Old Italian buffone
1 : a ludicrous figure : clown
2 : a gross and usually ill-educated or stupid person
- buf·foon·ish /-'fü-nish/ adjective

Nothing wrong with it?

Read it again.

Still nothing?

from Old Italian buffone

Old Italian.



Moi stared rapturously.

Why would anyone have a last name that meant..well... moron?

I mean....usually ill-educated or stupid person?


Shall-we the great was right after all.

I concede defeat.

Oh, and [belated] happy Diwali.
May the good soon win over the teachers evil.

Cheers! :D

And the [Ig] Nobel goes to......

Well people....its that time of the year again.
The wierdest awards in science are back.....you bet, the Ig Nobel.
For the idiots who dunno, the Ig Nobels are a spoof on the actual Nobel prizes, and are well......obviously more entertaining than their 'prim and propah' counterparts.
So....this year's Ig Nobels were given away in an award ceremony on the 5th of October at Harvard's Sanders Theatre (the official site also gives tips on how to "pahk your cah near Hahvud Yahd" (:P)

This year's bunch are :

Nic Svenson and Piers Barnes of the Australian Commonwealth Scientific Research Organisation, for calculating the number of shots a photographer must take to ensure that nobody in a group photo will have their eyes closed.

Bart Knols of Wageningen Agricultural University in the Netherlands and colleague Ruurd de Jong for showing that the female mosquito, which carries malaria, is attracted equally to the smell of cheese and human feet.

Howard Stapleton of Merthyr Tydfil , Wales for inventing a teenage repellant - a device that makes a high-pitched noise that is annoying to teenagers but inaudible to most adults. ( :P )

Ivan Schwab of University of California Davis and the late Philip May of University of California Los Angeles, for explaining why woodpeckers don't get headaches.

Wasmia Al-Houty of Kuwait University and Faten Al-Mussalam of the Kuwait Environment Public Authority, for showing that dung beetles are finicky eaters.

D.Lynn Halpern, Randolph Blake and James Hillenbrand of Chicago's Northwestern University, for a 1986 experiment aimed at discovering why the sound of fingernails scrapping on a blackboard is so irritating.

Francis Fesmire of the University of Tennessee College of Medicine and Majed Odeh, Harry Bassan and Arie Oliveh of Bnai Zion Medical Centre in Hafia, Israel who both published studies entitled 'Termination of Intractable Hiccups with Digital Rectal Massage.'

Daniel Oppenheimer of Princeton University for his report 'Consequences of Erudite Vernacular Utilized Irrespective of Necessity: Problems with Using Long Words Needlessly.'

Basile Audoly and Sebastien Neukirch of the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, in Paris, for their insights into why, when you bend dry spaghetti, it often breaks into more than two pieces.

Antonio Mulet, José Javier Benedito and José Bon of the University of Valencia, Spain, and Carmen Rosselló of the University of Illes Balears, in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, for their study "Ultrasonic Velocity in Cheddar Cheese as Affected by Temperature."

What do I say..................
