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,


    And now for something completely different....

    On this very merry occasion of Tazzy falling sick for the third time in one season, I pose this very important question to my dear readers-
    Should one be worried if one has a swelling in her neck and no visible puncture marks?
    Should one be ready with silver-laden garlic slices?

    Speaking of creatures of the night, heard this one? Enzymes from vampire bats are soon to be used as clotbusters(blood thinners) for stroke patients as they have a larger window of 9 hours as opposed to the regular TPAs which must be administered within 3 hours(no more) to prevent brain damage.
    What does this prove? That
    - You can learn something useful in the world of blogs
    - I do pay attention at meetings
    - You know some SOB will take it further and declare the docs are turning good people into vampires
    - I'm delirious and you should stop reading right now and hit 'next blog'.

    True friends, dedicated voyeur lend me your shoulders.
    Honestly, whatever happened to good old fashioned parents?
    Ofcourse I don't want to be fussed over, but go to a party instead of coming to visit your child with replenishments for the fridge?! where's the love in that?
    Though after three days of fever I must say I have gained a new taste for simple things like 'fried hotdogs with ketchup' and week- old- Coke.
    I have also learned you can't teach a cat to bring water. He is only good for staring at you cute and snuggling up. Atleast I could use the warmth.

    Speaking of warmth, I think the people above me are having crazy sex. The whole building has been shaking for the past hour. Sure they could be throwing furniture around and THEN have crazy sex on them....but my mind wanders. Its amazing how easy it is to pull yourself down with a few minutes before sleep knocks you keep thinking of distant friends, relatives, enemies having a life out in the sun and wonder if you should leave them a note just in case ...
    Yes, enough dramatics for a night won't you say?

    Good Night.
    Love you all........not the enemies. I'm not divine after all.

    a quick question: how many episodes of Sex and the City have you watched? !


    At 8:26 a.m., March 06, 2005, Anonymous Anonymous said...

    I did watch Hum-Tum for the nth time though :D

    Eek! Feel better dear. ::pat pat::

    Crazy sex would be good right about now. Although crazy sex that sounds like people throwing furniture around (golly wow!) is not so appealing. Unless you and your gal pals go all Rear Window and watch them go at it with a constant supply of booze and junk food close at hand. (Now that was an episode of Sex and the City.)

    I apologize for the word vomit.

    hahhaha should hv thought of that.
    not sure why the furniture was being thrown around but my highly medicated mind did register some definite moaning and cursing (not the the-hammer-caught-my-thumb kind either)

    Man I really need to venture out and find a video store that rents the first seasons of SexandtheCity- to see wht the fuss is all about.

    Tee hee! My dirty dirty mind should approve of such sounds, but it's indeed depressing to remember that other people are still having hot monkey sex. Blech.

    Sex and the City is pretty mediocre actually. And for a show that proposes to be all modern and chic among other things, shockingly steeped in unflattering stereotypes about both sexes. I believe they are showing all the episodes on City TV every weeknight at seven at the moment if you want to check it out.

    heheheh shimi - not yet!? hum tum! heheh i just saw trhat again :)

    qeta - aah but it's a lot of girls' night in kind of fun anyway :) not the city Tv version though -

    qeta: the silent snickerings from my friends will tell you that even though I own a TV(vital for movie watching), I voluntarily decided not to get cable. so no City TV for me. I'll hv to keep looking around for DVDs I guess :)
