Freaky dreams!!

One of the craziest dreams I’ve had... (my subconscious is like a teenage boy in an all-girls school)
Here goes ~
[I am baking chocolate chip cookies (Crazy Count -1.  My culinary skills are restricted to Tea,Coffee,Maggi and the occasional Fried Rice. Baking is wayyyyy outa my league!)
and then suddenly this dude in a leather jacket appears in my kitchen. He has looooong flowing hair and Greek-God looks.(Crazy count -2). He seats himself on the kitchen counter and goes “Yo Dee.” ]
Me – gllauuurrrghbffftttbblf
Dude in leather jacket with loooong flowing hair and Greek-God looks – What? What was that? Aaaah ur tongue-tied, at a loss for words I see.  I make u uncomfortable hmmmm?
Me – Oye! U get ur butt off my counter!!! And no, u do NOT make me tongue-tied.  I’m never at a loss for words. I’m just amazed at your audacity. U,..U.... you anon (Crazy count -3. Audacity? Anon? I don’t speak like tht normally!!!!)
Dude in leather jacket with loooong flowing hair and Greek-God looks – Hahahah ok ok calm down. Don’t get you apron in a twist.  You can call me Paulie btw!(Crazy count -4)
Me – Paulie? Paulie? OMG Paulie... hahahahahaha what kind of name is that? Paulie! ‘Hi. I’m Paulie.’ Did your parents hate you or something??
Paulie – Ha ha ha very funny.  If you could stop laughing for a sec. I need to tell you something.
Me - *wiping the tears from my eyes* khikhikhi ok ok tell me urrrm, Paulie wats this thing u have to tell me?
Paulie – The Fate of the world rests in your hands
 [tadumtadumtadum in the background like in a K-serial] (crazy count-5)
Me – whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? *faints*
[I wake up in some unfamiliar room. The walls are painted hot pink (crazy count-6). There is a huge bay-window to the left of the bed. The bed itself is like a double-king-size and the sheets are purple! I walk toward the window and see none other than Hrithik Roshan practising sword-play(crazy count-7). He is shirtless. I wonder if I haven’t seen this in some movie. I hear a noise and look up to see Paulie hanging from the ceiling fan like a bat(crazy count-8). He is starting to look less and less hot to me now. Hrithik Roshan is now joined by Hugh Jackman. They are mock-fighting. Hrithik, with his swords and Hugh with his Wolverine claws] (Crazy count-9)
Me – What the heck Paulie? Where the hell am I? Get me out of here right now. I’m gonna scream, I say.
Paulie – You are where you are meant to be. This is where you will fulfil your destiny.
Me – destiny?
Pauliedestiny (n)
1. The inevitable or necessary fate to which a particular person or thing is destined; one's lot.
2. A predetermined course of events considered as something beyond human power or control
3. The power or agency thought to predetermine events.
Me – oye! Don’t mess with me and talk sense. What destiny? Why am I here? Where  is here? And I won’t even start about the fight that’s going on outside.
Paulie – I’m making sense. You are the chosen one. You have to fulfil your destiny. It’s in the prophecy. Don’t you watch the movies? You’re like a female version of Neo..a err, Neotte?? Ya Neotte!!
 Here is Atlantis. And those two outside are training for the war. (crazy count-15. Hey! this counts as more than one c’mon)
Me – At.Lan.TiS???!!!!!????? The legendary island that was lost under the sea? [The song ‘under the sea’ suddenly starts playing in the background]
Paulie – Yup.
Me - Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahh
Paulie – Why are you screaming? Aieeee my ears.
Me – I warned you Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh.
Paulie - *Puts his hand on my mouth to shut me up!*
[It smells of poo]
Me – Ewwwwwww
Paulie – oooops sorry I was on stable duty today. The great elephant Booboo has diarrhoea I believe.
Me – Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
Paulie – Yaaa. Poo is just killer on my manicured hands. And the fumes open up my pores and keep them open. Look at how huge  my pores are! (Crazy count-??!!)
Me – errrr.
Paulie – hey. You want to play dress up?
Me – Ok!
[This is when i hear a weird *brrrrrrrzzzzzt brrrrrrrrzzzzzzzttt* and wake up suddenly to realise it’s the dumb alarm waking me up in time to get ready for my 9’OClock class which later got cancelled..... Urrrrgh i soooooo wanted to finish tht dream. What destiny I wonder and what the heck was with that Paulie guy???]
Any theories? Speculations? Mention them in the comments yous!

The new Us !!

You know what? It’s true! Its totally and completely true. Life IS an irony!! We started the blog because we almost always eat out and we thought our friends should benefit from our penchant for ‘bahaar ka khana’. But the ironic thing is that after we started this blog, we haven’t eaten out once. Yes we got some stuff home-delivered and W told you how that turned out! What with assignments, presentations and the unavoidable exams (AaaaaaaaaaaaahhH!!) coming up, it doesn’t look like we are going to be eating out all that much. All our ideas of going to to every restaurant in Mysore and rating them have come to naught.

Plus, we realised that we could only be rating Mysorean restaurants because despite all our good intentions to go to Bangalore every weekend, we are wayyy to lazy to get up earlier than 2 p.m. on weekends when making the three-and-a-half hour journey to Bangalore seems like an assignment (which we are overloaded with rite now!) rather than fun(as it was supposed to be!) And rating only Mysore restaurants doesn’t really benefit the majority of our friend circle.

So, we decided to change the blog-concept from the layman’s guide to food to the layman’s guide to the not-so- layman’s way of life. We want the world to know, how we, extraordinary specimen of the not-so-ordinary-non-teenagers live our lives!

Through this blog, we give you a rare insight into our eventful everyday lives. Laymen?- not so much!

Bad food - Bad Case of P.P. (Diwali Special) Part I

It was one hell of a weekend - fire crackers going all over the place, sparkling lights flickering the sky and best of all, people having an awesome time. Yup!!! i was having a great time with the greatest of friends.

All this fun lead to one drawback - a weekend full of fast foods in artery clogging amounts. When i say artery clogging a really meant it. Oily curries, saucy pizzas, greasy grilled chickens and to flush it down, a few bottles of mans' creation to thirst, Coke and LOTS OF IT.I knew this was not such a good idea, already having had Bad food- Bad P.P experience few months back (will come to that in a while). But what can you do....when you're an addict nothing in the world could stop you from sinking your teeth into that juicy mouth watering piece of chicken breasts(need a bra for that).

I hadn't had much sleep with all the movie marathons going on through most of the night forcing me to have many "Maggi(Noodles for those who don't know) Moments" along with my friends. My tummy was practically a churning whirlpool of god knows what. By the time we woke up for breakfast it was 3:00 in the evening and D had the great (not really - darn you D) idea of having biriyani. Though i was not even close to being hungry i just had to have the biriyani and much of what was left of others'. Finally everyone just came down crashing and left for their homes to hibernate and me being a moderate insomniac thought of doing some research in war strategies and techniques (playing Counter Strike :P). Few hours went by and finally sleep drooped my eyes shut - YES...finally a good nights sleep OR IS IT?

Then IT happened...I started hearing growls, rumbles and grumbles. I started to panic - sweating bullets. My whole body was flushed leaving a sort of body mark on my bed drenched in sweat. Yes, i knew P.P was coming - I just had to face the facts and get ready for what was inevitable. One might wonder what this P.P
is...well by now you would have obviously realised that it is not something i ever wanted to happen to me. But It DID...

Yes.. i Started Pooping and Puking (hence P.P). If any of these attacks happened singularly i could have coped with it, But had to come together, sometimes one after the other and sometimes while trying to clean up from the previous attack. It had me baffled most of the time making me wonder whether to run and get shelter in the toilet or to just find a bucket and dip my head in it. Other times i didnt know which was coming. It had me just where it wanted.


Oye! Chole

Its a lazy saturday morning and i've got rats runing around in my stomach.(i'm hungryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.) I should go make something. My mum was here recently and she stocked up the kitchen with all the ingredients i need to make any kind of breakfast,lunch or dinner! But I, (being the lazy bug that I'm) am going to just re-heat the chole and have a mother bowl of that for breakfast.(mother here, means BIIIG) Mum made the chole day before yesterday and according to W, it is now dead and shouldn't be eaten. But I beg to differ. I got ways to make it as good as new...
Dee's tips to bing life to dead chole:

 1. Chole+Bread=Great Sandwich.. Ok, so heat the chole, bring it to a crazy boil(the bubbles should be popping like crazy). Toast a few slices of bread(number depends on how hungry you are and how much left-over chole you have) Butter one side of the slices, spread chole on one buttered slice, slap on the other slice and *tadaaaaa* Chole sandwich!!!

 2. Omlette+Chole=Omlette Chole.... This one sounds weird but I like it... Again bring the chole to a crazy boil. Then, make an omlette..when its half cooked spoon some chole on half of the omlette and fold the other half over it,let it cook and voila...Omlette Chole!!

 3. Monaco+Chole=Great snack....This one works if you have only a little leftover. Take a few monaco biscuits, spoon chole over it(it should NOT be too runny else, your biscuit will get soggy and become eww) add whatever topings you want(fancy ones like parsley taste yum!)

Ayyoo, now me even more hungryy. My chole awaits..

Yes, we saw it all, we ate so much that we are best buddies with the cook (we can now practically reverse-engineer all the recipes of what we ate) and one fine day, *phaataaaaakkk* we got the bright idea to enlighten people with our vast knowledge of restaurants in Mysooru! oh, oh oh and also Mangalore, Bangalore(I refuse to say Bengaluru) and Maldives.(and maybe other cities and countries too. sooo many possibilities)

D - A slightly unbalanced(literally, for she can't seem to walk on a flat, stable surface without finding something to trip over! sometimes, her own two feet!!) chick who until 3 years ago thought of meal-times as a punishment! Then she came to the Heritage city-Mysore and met W...

W - A hard core foodie, probably the only person who could turn D into a food-lover, not to mention every other person in their class. Passion for food, love for life and a never-ending thirst for the next-best-thing-to-do(his ideas HAVE to win!)

The two argue about almost everything right from who is a bigger motormouth to who can be the bigger jerk of the two.
The two have almost nothing in common. In constitutional terms, totally opposite sex,race,religion and place of birth making them the perfect duo to simplify your decisions on where to eat? what to eat? when to eat? why to eat right? and finally, how to hold it in (in case of projectiles!)
