Don't want to wake up in the morning,I'm not prepared to face the day
My nerves are still frazzled by the stress of yesterday

No time for breakfast or tea, or healthy calories
I should stay at home, but I need the salary

That's when I see it(like every other day)
I tell myself I wont do it again,
That I'm addicted and it would hurt me in the end

my feet stop on their own, my nerves set up a clamor
you know what can sooth us babe, dont you want to feel better?

I argue for a second, but I know what I'm gonna do
I can't resist that pharmacy, it virtually glows

My mind chides me all along,but I walk up anyway,
I shove down the guilt and whisper "Ek cadbury dena please"
(English translation : A cadbury chocolate please)

I went a little crazy then, lost a bit of faith
Every time I had my chance
I threw it all away

And now I stand at an untouched place
The wind my body sways

All I have is this moment
The rest fades with the day

Princess in the tower...

They say I don't say too much, that my heart's sealed in a box,
I say I had the key to it once, but he burnt it down to dust;

They say I stay in a fortress, why don't you come down to play
I say I pulled 'em walls down once, but he stole everything away;

They say I have no feelings, why don't I see how life's so fair
I say look, look down dear friend, Someone's walked on them all the way;

They say why don't you fall in love, that love is here to stay,
I say I went there too once, but my baby walked away...

That glass is half full...

5 things that have gone unbearably wrong in this city/country and ways to beat ‘em -

1. 300% food inflation – Come on people, it’s the right time to hit that diet, maybe we could all adapt to living on air (atleast until we start having to pay for breathing), and have those size zero figures we’ve always wanted!!

2. Increasing real estate prices, additional levies to be passed on to the consumers – Buy a nano, stay in it!! In any case the fuel is too expensive to drive it anywhere.

3. Dug up roads, half constructed metros blocking roads, holes the size of meteor strikes – this is the right time to start your own loss making business venture, and stop travelling to work. Why loss making? Read on….

4. Direct Taxes, hidden taxes, double taxes – See point 3, loss =no tax

5. Increasing petrol prices, increased public transportation costs – see points 2 and 3

Maybe the government should just ask us to handover our savings accounts and assign pocket money by a lottery system, that way they won’t have to bother coming up with innovative taxes...

Not so new addition to the blog family!!!

There's a new addition to my list of blogs!!
But it isnt exactly new, because I've just shifted it from wordpress to blogger.

It's still not really aesthetically in place, and I've still not managed to get the comments across...but the content's all there...

Do visit Total Recall !!

My experiments with .....cake!!!

Somebody forgot to tell me that challenges are called challenges....coz that's what they are....
You don't mess with them, and you don't take them if you can help it!!
Well, like I said, nobody told me...though they did hint that it wouldn't be easy, when I said I'd provide the cake for K's b'day party...(she turned 3)

The rest of the story in bullet points(cant help it, it's the MBA in me..)
1. A week to decide on the shape
2. 3 days to decide on the perfect recipe, that would yield the perfect firm cake, with no crust, and that would be easy to shape, but still spongy enough to hold any syrups i subjected it too, and be good enough to eat
3. 45 minutes of crazy whipping of butter and sugar and eggs and all things good and fattening

4. 15 minutes for the cake to bake!!!(I'm still in shock that it took only 15 minutes!!!!)

5. 3 and a half hrs of frosting to get a passable blue elephant!!!!
