[also, UNMBB no. 5]

  • I is being thrown out of the house. The mother says I is a bad influence on the kids because I care about my marks overmuch.
  • Overzealous tuition teachers can be hazardous to health. My Economics tutor just got an A/C installed in our room, and in the josh of jawaani, keeps it on at full blast at 18C. Couple this with my delicate little nose, and you have an olfactory disaster. Picture this : I'm sniffing away to glory, and the leaky sneaky thing refuses to stop. So I think I'll run down to the chemist and get some tissue paper. Lo and behold, the chemist hands me a wad of 300 table tissues. I ask if they have a smaller pack, and the answer's in the negative. At this precise moment, my friend comes up with a bright plan. Why not use wet wipes? I give her a deadpan look and say, "They're -wet.-" She uses the mesmer, or whatever, but at the end of it, I give in. Now the pack I buy is aloe vera and mint extract. This should be a good time to be wary, seeing my past history with aloe vera, but cold viruses numb your brain. We're back at the tuition centre and now I get this incredulous stare from the first person I see. I realise I'm holding a wet tissue to my nose. A wet, or in other words, completely and utterly drenched tissue. One that says,"Wow, isn't that some cold?" Blah.
  • Paul Newman endorsed Lux. Someone please lend the guy some money.
  • Rabri Devi has sisters called Rasgulla, Paan and Jalebi. Someone please send them my sympathies.
  • You didn't go for COQ 08, did you? Ha, sucker. That's why you didn't know.
  • In Breaking News at School!, the Chem lab has been shifted from the first floor to the ground floor. Why? Because the pillars supporting it were cracking. All thanks to the lovely, studious Science kids who can't fathom spending a single minute without Pradeep [the book, silly] and therefore spend 24 hours of holy inactivity studying. This leads to the formation of perfectly spherical human spheres of scientific excellence, and puts too much weight on the pillars. The pillars can't bear the brunt, and crumble. What if someone had actually come under them? Studying is injurious to health. Your honour, I rest my case.
  • Now Dish the Fish has been up to some tough, tough work lately. No, she hasn't mastered the art of laughing without the hand coming up to cover her mouth yet [though persevere and you will learn, bachcha.] In actuality, she's done much more. Madame Amphibian has found me a proposed soulmate! In her words, "He sounds SO much like you, the solutions to problems he gives, his accent! [I don't have an accent btw, just an overlyexcitedspeakfastrushwhooosh way of talking], has this really nice, deep voice [um. I screech. And that's me being objective. :|] and he hosts a radio show!"
Sounds perfect, doesn't he?

Just this minor catch.

His show is called er.. Between The Sheets.

They fly untamed.

The expanse of blue:
inhales the rise
of each tiny life;
sighs to propel
every carefree flight;
While with arms open
they tread gently,

Softly; on its chest.

Tag paanch aka MEZ IZ TAGGEDZ!

Tagged by His Almighty Geekiness, Ashish.

5 - You’re going on a long journey, what five albums MUST you take with you? Albums that you need to listen to regularly.

  • Silk Route : Boondein [actually, this does have an incredibly corny English song called, um.. Mermaid. *shudders* I'm allowed to substitute that with Mohit Chauhan's Guncha, right? =D]
4 - What four albums/songs do you most associate with a journey or travel experience memory? You know, the ones you listen to that transport you back to a place and time.

  • Asoka [yes, the Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor movie. Stop gaping.] : I'd gone on a family vacation to Kerala back when I was 11, and for ten days, I listened to nothing else, since it was the sole non-Malayalam album our driver had. San Sana-na Nan. Responsible for any craziness I display today. You have no idea how impressionable an eleven year old is.
  • Numb - Linkin Park : 15th December, 2007. School grounds. School fete in progress. Yours truly on compering duty at the music request stall on stage, seeing 3000 kids getting bored. What does yours truly do? She takes the microphone, and instead of just announcing, "Next up is Numb, by Linkin Park, from [insert random desperate guy's name] to all the hot girls of Carmel!", she er.. shouts,"Lemme hear you roaaaaaaaaaaaaaar, people!" and proceeds to jump, and head bang to Numb, lip syncing, and going crazy in a passable imitation of Chester. On stage. 3000 people. [Aku, I know you'll be a good friend, and delete that video. NOW.]
  • Keh Lene Do - Agnee : In the 11th, when our class would be practicing for the 12th's farewell, Sukanya and I would sit on the low ledge behind the auditorium at school, with baby squirrels for company. We'd begin with humming Keh Lene Do, and Karvan by Agnee, move on to Tere Bina by Fuzon, and as more people came and sat, Allah Ke Bande, finally finishing off with a crowd favourite : Chain Kulli Ki Main Kulli. =P [You HAVE to see that video.]
  • Shayad / Nishaan - Call : For the impromptu jam sessions at school with K. =)
3 - Your three favourite songs of all time?
  • I Will Follow You Into The Dark : Death Cab For Cutie [Do.. not.. stare. Its a nice song. Shoo.] [as is Carnival of Rust. And Champagne Supernova. And Good Riddance. ^.^]
2 - Two feel good songs, the ones that are guaranteed to lift the blues and put a smile on your face.
  • Ud Chalta - Nitish Pires [The guy is um.. weird. And the album version has better vocals. And slightly adjusted lyrics.]
  • Le Chale - KK, My Brother Nikhil [also try: Yeh Honsla - Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan]

1 - Absolute, overall, undoubtedly the best album of all time, in your opinion.
  • The ever changing, all accommodating to-listen-before-bed album of the [V]. =D

[Ah yes. I wasn't supposed to include any Inglis songs. One little song or two can't hurt, right? At least, I say it can't. & my word is law. I is 17. Mwahahahaha.]
