People and their various roles.....

Just thought of listing out a few people and the roles they play in my world....

Nameeta
* My TV guide: She reminds me to watch Tv.... she knows when the reruns are and I started watching Grey's Anatomy, One Tree Hill, American Idol, etc. because of her. (She used to watch that irritating alien serial too Roswell, that was one silly show)
* My sider: She's on my side, while arguing with the parents.

Manoj and Vinod
* My laughter generators: There's nobody on this world, who can make me laugh like they do.
* My extravagant Genie's: All I have to do is say the word, and the next thing you know its on its way to me. (I have asked for chocolates and books... and they bring them in excess.)

Shilpa and Anju
* My very own Reality tv/Sitcom shows: Their lives are very entertaining. Shil turns everything into an event, while Anju is a magnet that attracts all weirdos out there.
* My psychiatrists: Yeah, they listen and give good advice. At the end of it all, Shil, is ready to bash up the people that have made me lose my sanity while Anju tells me "God's will, will not take you where His power will not lead you"... stuff like that.
* My movie/book reviewers: Their taste is as good as mine.

Mahesh (This boy at school)
My coast clearer: There are huge lizards ( by huge I mean enormous, fat, ugly, disgusting) in the office room. Mahesh makes sure the coast is clear before I enter the office room.

Megha
Really sad but stupidly funny joke cracker: That girl is all about the sad jokes you will ever hear, but they sound funny coming from Megha. Eg: Tap dancing is really easy, all you have to do is hold a tap and start dancing.

Ryan

Atrociously funny oneliner guy: Some of the sentences I remember: The stars were on a mission in the missionary position. He also said something about women being cranky when they have to nurse their dying eggs. 

The kids nearby
Hard rock/ heavy metal entertainers: When they come over, its just noise, noise and more noise.

Nitya
My Psychoanalyst: She's a regular Sigmund, its fun talking to her.... she asks all these questions and she watches your response, then she gives her verdict. Every single gesture, the slightest nod or laugh is interpreted.

Jude
Purple Prose Entertainer: Its fun chatting with this guy, he often uses rich words while conversing, sometimes you have to google them to find out their meaning. He once referred to baptism as 'banishing evil from the psyche'.

Antonio
Better Person Maker: I know its cliche but I do think its true... he's just so calm and collected when my temper flies all over the place. When no ones arguing back, the steam in your head evaporates after you've had your say. And after a while, you tend to blow up less often... you learn to take things in your stride. 


There are a lot more.... will enter them as & when I remember.

Very nice one! :) I'm so touched. If that anonymous is shilpa, then in an odd sense it makes sense. :p
If it's not her, then there you go, another sitcom.

Santhi Nilayam, School for the Mentally Challenged...

After a long long time, I visited the special school I used to work in, and the kids have all grown up...tiny tots now taller than me and sprouting facial hair!!! I was flummoxed... gosh, time changes everyone and everything. Wonder what changes they saw in me... anyway, I was just happy to be backthere. Went early to catch sight of that yellow school bus turning the corner and to watch all the kids tumbling out. While I was working there, that yellow bus turning the corner always marked the start of an exciting day. Right from the moment the kids hit the ground, the fun starts... that place will always be shrouded in hues of warm sunshine in my memory, it is a great place to be.  On the way to school, came across a few students... The special school, Santhi Nilayam (means Abode of Peace)  Great place...  The school bus and the kids... The assembly itself is heartwarming, a kid recites the prayers and the others repeat after him, in their characteristic sounds and half utterances.  T…

The Ten Commandments of Christmas

Last Sunday in church, leaflets with the following 'Christmas Ten Commandments' were handed out and the parish priest Fr. Joe Andrews discussed them with the congregation.   You shall not leave 'Christ' out of Christmas, making it 'Xmas'. Christ is the reason for the season.You shall prepare your soul for Christmas. Spend not so much on gifts that your soul is forgotten (a good confession is a nice way to prepare your hear for Christmas)You shall not let Santa Claus replace Christ, thus robbing the day of its spiritual reality. (Prepare yourself with prayer and the Word of God.)You shall not neglect your church. Its services highlight the true meaning of the season. You shall not neglect the needy. Share they blessings with the many who will go hungry and cold unless you are generous.You shall not neglect thy family during this season. You shall not forget the elderly and those who are lonely at Christmas time.You shall not value gifts received by their cost. E…

Grandma's Caramel Cake...

Everybody in my family loves this cake, its my grandmother's recipe and it can be tweaked during the holiday season to form a delicious Christmas fruit cake. The ingredients are simple to remember, you just need equal  quantities of flour, sugar and butter and the cake is guaranteed to come out great. Ingredients 400 grams maida or all purpose flour
400 grams sugar
400 grams butter
8 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
dried fruits and nuts 
brandy or rum (optional)
I've taken 400 grams of butter, sugar and flour cause I wanted to make a large cake for Christmas. You can scale the quantities down to half and make a medium sized cake. Let's start with caramelizing the sugar, from the 400 grams of sugar that you have set aside for this cake, take bout a quarter of that (100 grams) and start heating it in a dry vessel. I usually drop in another handful (bout 50 gms) of sugar to get more of the gooey caramel when I plan on adding b…
