Vitamin Water

One of my favourite beverages in the MV office is Vitamin Water(by Glaceau), something I can drink several bottles of at a time.
Its only today that the fine print on the bottle caught my attention:

"Vitamin Water - revive, fruit punch (b + potassium)
even though this product contains potassium, like in bananas, to get you back in the swing of things, it should not be given to monkeys, shoved in anybody's exhaust pipe or be used in ice cream sundaes. any attempts to perform such acts will result in being called, um, bananas."

And all this is written right next to the serious 'nutrition facts' table. I love the way glaceau adds a dash of humour to everything.

Art of Conversation

"The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment." - Dorothy Nevill

For the people

Now that we have the car, how about the fuel and the roads?

If there were to be a cuteness award..

A few scenes in TZP win full points for cuteness -
- When Ishaan's father tells him he(the father) is going away , Ishaan apologizes profusely, Ishaan's mom says - 'Kyu bache ko sata rahe ho? Ishaan, papa kaam se jaa rahe hai, tumhari wajah se nahi', and then Ishaan gives his father THAT look.. the look is priceless.
- In the song 'Jame Raho' - the whole of Ishaan's sequence - right from the 'angdaai' to the jump in the puddle, is hilarious.. The only 'angdaai' that rivals Ishaans' is Ashs' in Aur Pyaar Ho gaya, which got rave reviews from the likes of Subhash Ghai, who decided to cast Ash in Taal, only because of that angdaai!! So Darsheel is mostly going to be approached by the master film maker soon..
- The song Maa. Its the only point in the movie that truly got me teary eyed. Really touchy number. Very sweet lyrics..

I dont know about the Best Actor's award, I sure wish the lad got a cuteness award :D

Quizzes anyone?

Reading the newspaper is something I am not used to. Fact is that my attention span is short.. So short that I invariably get bored reading as much as a paragraph in the newspaper..
Due to this reason, I have found it impossible to muster the courage to participate in any quizzes! (What if someone discovers how poor my GK is :O)

But thanks to the nagging 'invitations' feature of Facebook, I have finally started quizzing!
At the end of a grueling quiz, Facebook gets playful - 'Invite at least 20 friends to view results'. What if I didn't have 20 other friends and wanted to take the quiz???
But well then, Facebook would send me invitations for all sorts of 'Friend finder' applications wouldn't it?

Root of stress?

Interesting read about the origins of the word stress.

Guncha koi..

I play my iPod in the shuffle mode.. And this old favourite plays -

Guncha koi, mere naam kar diya,
saaqi ne fir se mera jaam bhar diya!


Hosh bekhabar se hue,
unke bagair..
Wo jo humse keh na sake,
dil ne keh diya


P.S. : I love the way he rolls the 'ga' in guncha..
