Forwards and Backwards

I've never been the forward kind of person. I'm talking about emails. :p Well, i do enjoy reading them to an extent. Like when they make me laugh till my sides hurt or when they give me food for thought. But I despise the kind that go "If you don't forward this mail in the next 12.5 minutes to fifteen and a half people you are DOOMED for life!". I mean, really, give me a break. So, today I opened my mailbox and found this really cool forward sitting in my inbox and I decided that instead of forwarding it I'l simply post it here for the world to see, and yeah, if you don't forward it, your hands will grow short and your back will itch and you won't be able to scratch :p Ensoi!

Some Rules that NEWTON forgot to mention

Law of Queue : If you change queues, the one you have left will start to
move faster than the one you are in now..

Law of the Telephone : When you dial a wrong number, you never get an
engaged tone.

Law of Mechanical Repair : After your hands become coated with grease, your
nose will begin to itch.

Law of the Workshop : Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least
accessible corner.

Law of the Alibi : If you tell the boss you were late for work because you
had a flat tire, the next morning you will have a flat tire.

Bath Theorem : When the body is immersed in water, the telephone rings.

Law of Encounters : The probability of meeting someone you know increases
when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with.

Law of the Result : When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't
work, it will!

Law of Biomechanics : The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to
the reach.

Theatre Rule : People with the seats at the furthest from the aisle arrive

Law of Coffee : As soon as you sit down for a cup of hot coffee, your boss
will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

    • Ha Ha.. Hope you had a good laugh like I did :)

      Darna Mana Hai!

      They say that the best way to overcome your fear is to face it. Now how do I face something that I've never seen or heard. Yes, I have morbid fear of the unseen, of the dark, of things unknown. It might sound stupid for most people, but its true. I'm a chicken when it comes to ghosts and ghost stories. I'm also highly superstitious. Sometimes I don't reveal good things to people i know for the fear of having it jinxed. Ahem. I'm like that only.
      There was a time when i wouldn't go alone to any part of the house alone without my mom calling out to me just to assure me of her presence.
      And when I'm watching a horror movie and I know that a scary scene is coming up I shut my eyes tight and peek slowly through one eye to see whats happening. The nightmares then follow, for which I go snuggle up against mum in the dead of the night and jump at the sound of every little thing.
      Strange but true :)

      Happy Birthday to Me

      To hell with my wishlist, I had the most mind-blowing birthday! So the just started on a usual note, and I was generally at peace with myself, musing about how old I am and what I have achieved so far in life. I spent the better part of the day chilling with a couple of friends and family. Then by evening I was all disappointed that I hadn't cut a cake for my B'day. I didn't want to be whiny and be a pain cuz I thought "Ok everyone's busy being a working day and all. "
      Then I got home and mum also was around, and I started smelling a fish cuz she was not her usual self and was trying really hard to make me stay put in my room. She was very sweetly making conversation with me about everything under the sun. And I even heard a few stray noises which I conveniently ignored. The doorbell rang at one point and mom said it was just the neighbourhood kids being bratty. Then I thought "Alright its just my imagination and nothing really was happening around." Finally, after two hours of my initial suspicions, my mum says "Lets go watch some TV" and I followed her with a broad grin on my face. Then SURPRISE! Alafia, Saleema, a, Sakina and Yusuf were crooning Happy Birthday with very broader grins of their own. There were balloons everywhere and some fancy decoration and I was SOOO thrilled. And the cake! Goodness, it was just waiting to be dug into, but some of it ended up on my face (see here) :/ There was a huge pile of pizzas and I kept counting and recounting them wondering who on earth will eat so many. We all settled down to have pizza and juice and fish tikka and then walked in another SURPRISE, Hema Ranjani and Prabu!
      And the evening went on with lot of cheer and excitement, I was all hyper hyper flitting from one person to another. I felt so good to have such wonderful beautiful friends and parents who made my day such a special one. Kudos to all of u! I'm open to more surprises and gifts in life :p

      My Brush with Poetry

      I've never really been big on poetry, have attempted several times, but in vain. So there was this one time when it was my cousin, Sakina's birthday and me having selective amnesia totally forgot to wish her. In fact to add insult to injury, she actually reminded me to wish her. I was red with embarrassment and decided that before I could gift her something I needed to make it up to her in my way, so I tried writing a poem for her. The poem goes like this (Do NOT snigger, smirk OR gag!)

      How better can i express my regret than puttin it in words,
      And hoping that just this once you will forgive me.
      Promise never to do it again
      Provided you forgive me.
      You are special and always will be.

      Bullying, teasing, caring and sharing
      Is all it takes, for you to show your love to me.
      Ranting, raving, whining and troubling
      That's the love which comes to you from me
      Having you around in life
      Does wonders to everyone around
      And your absence can make the place gloomy
      You single-handedly bring life to the sights and sound.

      So let bygones be bygones
      And celebrate this day wit enthu
      Knowing you this won't be tough
      I hope you prove me true
      Now thats one long poem for my super sis
      Are your eyes still stuck on this?

      OK, enough of rolling your eyes at my poem. If you look at the aesthetic appeal of the poem, it has no rhyme, no reason, no meter, and the works. Its called abstract poetry :) Ya I coined it myself. I'm sure Keats, Byron and Frost are rolling in their respective graves. Go on, make all the fun you want to. But I really appreciate my cousin for appreciating my poem without flinching!

      My Past Life

      Now this is a first for me. The second post in a single day. Not bad eh? Ok so this post is nothing major, I just came across this site which told me who I was in my past life based on my name or DOB or I don't exactly remember what. And ya I went ahead and did what it asked me to do and Tada! they gave me a diagnosis!! yes they called it a diagnosis for God's sake. Anyway this is how it goes -

      "Your past life diagnosis: I don't know how you feel about it, but you were female in your last earthly incarnation.You were born somewhere in the territory of modern Central India around the year 1200. Your profession was that of a philosopher and thinker. Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
      Timid, constrained, quiet person. You had creative talents, which waited until this life to be liberated. Sometimes your environment considered you strange. The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
      Your main task is to make the world more beautiful. Physical and spiritual deserts are just waiting for your touch. Keep smiling! Do you remember now?"

      Good that I was a female, I cant imagine myself as a member of the male species in any birth. Central India! Well in this birth my dad was born there so I don know maybe somewhere there is a connection. I'm still waiting for those creative talents to be liberated which were waiting to burst through in my past life. My "environment" still considers me strange, even though nobody says it on my face :p What I like about the whole diagnosis is that I'm supposed to be making the world more beautiful! With pleasure I say :) Nice. I like.


      Will people agree with me if I say that the weekend ends before you can say Jack Robinson? It sure happens to me. I have one hell of roller coaster ride all weekend, then Poof! its gone and before I know it, I'm dragging myself out of bed on a Monday morning. This weekend was no different. I shopped till I dropped, I ate all the junk the world had to offer, I read till my eyes hurt, but the only thing that eluded me was precious sleep.
      I guess I'm just too jumpy through the weekend to catch up with any, I want to be everywhere, do everything, live the two days before they slip out of my crooked fingers.
      I'm reading this fantastic novel called "Public Secrets" by Nora Roberts and I simply cannot put the book down. Its strange you know, I don't know if it happens to everyone, but everytime I read a book, the story or at least part of the story is bizarrely related to my own life. Hmm, need to do a survey on this one.
      Signing off for now, looking forward to an eventful week ahead!
