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,

    Inventions


    Children of the 80s, you might already know this but, we were seriously duped back then eh?
    Shows like ‘Jetsons’, ‘Space Odyssey’ had us believe we’d be living in a different world five years into the millennium- Living in sky high towers with private elevators, owning household robots, food in pill form, clothes that come out of the closet already ironed, going shopping in flying cars etc. Where are they huh?
    Oh.
    Scratch the first and third ones- got those already.
    I’m even willing to let the flying car thing go. Rear-end collisions are bad enough to rule out acceptance of top-down ones.
    A pesky household robot? No thanks. One Bill Gates product in charge of your writing is annoying enough; can you imagine it handling your dinner?!(Mashed potoato IX anyone?)

    But clothes that come out ironed! That is essential man.
    Knowing how EVERYONE hates ironing, I’d really really thought we would have had something similar by now.
    Dryers that also iron and fold perhaps!
    But have the people-responsible-for-inventing-what-you-might-want-in-the-future-but-not-be-able-to-afford-right-now given it any serious consideration? Nope.
    Surely they must face situations similar to mine. Or not. They might be all geeky physics guys who don’t see wrinkles or have wife shaped eyes- so don't care. grr.
    Anyway, bottom line- I am expecting guest in two hours and all my sheets are wrinkled into something resembling a bean bag.
    If you have never tried ironing the covers with the comforter (blanket) still in it…… I suggest you just go out and buy new sheets.
    Now there is a thought. ....hmm.....new red satin sheets with bronze ‘saree’ borders…….wrinkle proof :D
