Is that how the Creative cookie crumbles?

06:20 AM: 40 minute Yoga session
07:40 AM: Running + Walking a total of 4 kilometers
09:15 AM: Big breakfast convinces me I'm mum's favorite child
10:40 AM: Feeling invincible
Rest of the day: Hunting down ideas in hiding to fend off feeling defeated again.

Yesplease?

If your knee jerk response to anyone who says "I really don’t want to have a heavy conversation right now" is NOT "Ok. Then I really don’t want to have a conversation, ever," one of you is an asshole and one of you is trying hard not to be an asshole.

'How delightfully the fish are enjoying themselves,' exclaimed Soshi.

'You are not a fish,' commented his friend, ' how do you know that the
fish are enjoying themselves?'

'You are not myself,' answered Soshi, 'how do you know, that I do not
know, that the fish are enjoying themselves?'

Prague (pronounced /ˈprɑːɡ/; Czech: Praha pronounced ['praɦa' ])

A very old friend and love interest traveled to Prague recently.
When chatted about how the city was divided by an invisible line into the clean, maintained, touristy half and the unkempt, disheveled, urban half.
About the cobblestones and how they made his calves so unnecessarily strong.
Conversations about food ensued, with a weak attempt to gauge the approximate amount of pork and pivo(beer) lining his stomach at that point in time.
I was told that everything Kundera (one of our favorites) had written about Prague was true, and that Kafka was definitely their most favorite son.
Thanks to a bad internet connection in a local hotel room, our conversation ended abruptly, with him telling me how the city was immensely inspiring (yes, why wouldn't a writer say that?) and a mention of graffiti all over the walls. A few minutes later I received this picture in my mail, sent through phone email.
...
...
...
If nothing else sealed the deal, this did.
And I hope to see more of Prague soon.

Friday

Just as soon as I entered work and switched on my computer this morning, I got the feeling that I had something really important and exciting to do... It was eating my home packed breakfast.

Warning: Self Diagnosing over the Web...

... can be really embarrassing if someone peeps over your shoulder and into your monitor.

'Love Poem' by Banksy

Beyond watching eyes
With sweet and tender kisses
Our souls reached out to each other
In breathless wonder

And when I awoke
From a vast and smiling peace
I found you bathed in morning light
Quietly studying
All the messages on my phone

- Banksy

Observation

I say "But it's in Comic Sans..." in the same tone of voice as I say
"But she's fat..." Its the one that connotes complete and genuine
incomprehensibility.

Probably...

Death smells like a hospital.
A hospital smells like disinfectant.
So, death smells like a disinfectant?

Delhi Airport | 12 AM | January 13th, 2010

At 12 AM,
When icy fog delays your trip home,
And there’s no room on the last flight to Bangalore,
Delhi Airport gets lonely for everyone,
Except the chairs,
Who get their freak on,
And start playing the staring game,
With each other, and with you.
Point blank.

There's a hole in my stomach

TODAY, I HAVE EATEN A BAG FULL OF KISSES, A PACKET OF GEMS, FIVE MARSHMALLOWS, A MEDIUM SIZED PACK OF CHOCOS, ONE CHOCOPIE COOKIE, SOME GATORADE, GRAPES AND DINNER SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE.
I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE THANKFUL FOR GREAT GENES AND A DANGEROUSLY HIGH METABOLIC RATE.
EVER.

Paris with Minx.


Its only logical
to start practicing
one’s French
if
one intends
to vacation
in Paris
this summer.
