I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks! You are my visitor number,

    Friday

    Time for..


    Its that time again- time to get 'scared', only this year it's going to last an entire weekend.
    Yep its Halloween again. Though with the upcoming US elections, one doesn't necessarily need to sit through a screening of 'Grudge' to get spooked. Just the possibility that its going to be a repeat of the last election is enough to keep you tensed and at the edge of your seat.
    Still its nice eh?
    Only in North America would you come across such scheduled days of the year .
    Days to-
    - get scared,
    - give gifts,
    - see your relatives,
    - say 'I love You',
    - buy eggs and hide them,
    - appreciate your mom,
    - appreciate your dad,
    - appreciate the Queen (in Canada),
    - appreciate the labour force,
    - eat turkey
    - wear green

    The rest of the days of the year are spent yearning for the above days.

    Pretty soon there will be a day 'to hate' too!

    Till then, I'm going to put on some grey makeup and false pointy teeth tonight and dance the night away- be like the proles.

    shimi - please, people here have even weirder days - rose day, friendship day, red letter day, flower day, spring day, sexual tension day - what not. People hand out cards here with "Friendly contacts" like water droplets on a rainy day. very bizarre! hehe so, all in all, a day to eat turkey sounds quite nice and normal and comforting, thank u very much !:D

    Haha thats a funny way of looking at holidays. i never thought about it that way but they do seem pretty silly days to have. soon we wont even look at them as holidays because we will always have some holiday coming around the corner to where it seems like they're almost every day.
