To relationship!

I can’t let you burn me up nor can I resist. No mere human can not stand in a fire and not be consumed.
- A S Byatt in Possession

Wow! I mean those lines absolutely define human emotion, when it comes to relationship.

Of late, relationship be it of marriage, dating or anything else of the likes, is what most people around me have been talking of. Kinda nice, spooky, scary, interesting, boring, yada yada! I mean relationships go through all kinds of phases, and likewise is the case of different people around me.

Well, this one is to you, the human emotion rather necessity of being wanted and of wanting. Without you I don't think, if not for all, I at least, wouldn't have survived till today! :)

a hilarious forward in quite a while :)

The Washington Post Style section runs a contest every year where they want readers to combine two "real" words into a third word and then provide a definition for that new word.

These were some of the winners this year.

Stick with it, some of these are hilarious...


1. Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.

2. Foreploy (v): Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of getting laid.

3. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.

4. Giraffiti (n): Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.

5. Sarchasm (n): The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it. (hahaha! i lou this one)

6. Inoculatte (v): To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.

7. Hipatitis B! (n): Terminal coolness.

8. Osteopornosis (n): A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit.)

9. Karmageddon (n): It's like, when everybody is sending off all these really bad vibes, right? And then, like, the Earth explodes and it's like, a serious bummer.

10. Decafalon (n.): The grueling event of getting through the day consuming only things that are good for you.

11. Glibido (v): All talk and no action. (nicee!)

12. Dopeler Effect (n): The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.

13. Arachnoleptic Fit (n.): The frantic dance performed just after you've accidentally walked through a spider web.

14. Beelzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito that gets into your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out.

15. Caterpallor (n.): The color you turn after finding half a grub in the fruit you're eating.

And the pick of the literature:
16. Ignoranus (n): A person who's both stupid and an a**h***

Some schizoid rambling...

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university lecturer. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the lecturer went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups: porcelain, plastic, glass, some plain-looking and some expensive and exquisite, telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the lecturer said: "If you noticed, all the nice-looking, expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the better cups and are eyeing each other's cups."

"Now, if Life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, but the quality of Life doesn't change."

"Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it."

Interesting, nothing new, cliche, simple, eye-opener, so true!, idealistic, irrational, i know!, but still!, if only!, bullshit...

This is me reflecting on this forward I got, which is nothing new, but still worth a second read, a little reflection and then some airy dismissal LOL!

I dont know if age has taught me complacency or is this natural... but I think it is but natural and hell! I aint no Mahatma Gandhi or Karl Marx, let alone a Gautam Buddha or Jesus Christ...

I am just a normal human being, who lives thinking grass is greener on the other side...
But then, that is not ALL of me, I do think this can be achieved, as I do appreciate (if not adore their lives) the men I wrote about above...

So what am I trying to say here, I have no clue... I ramble on, just like that, irrationally yet rationally, thoughtfully yet in haste, but I guess the effort wasn't a waste...

Hell this IS the phjilosophy of today, of the popular culture worshipping yuppie, for whom Bill Watterson and Calvin along with Don Corleone and Tyler Durden are the Gods, the philosophers, the saints and the prophets!

Well if you are still reading on, I guess you also do identify with me at some point if not more! Swell! So here's cheers to that...

Oh, wait, let me go fill my signature Channel [W] metallic thermos cum mug with some coffee and come...

a little late, but anyhoo...

As the new day dawns,
With rays of joy anew,
May this festive season:
Be the best for you!

As the new hour clocks,
With moments of happiness,
May this festive season:
Bring afore Gods themselves to bless!

As every new wish nears,
With blessings galore adorning you,
May this festive season:
Bring your heart fond memories to renew…

As the new joy surmounts,
Life will never seem happier,
May this festive season:
Bring the dear ones closer
