A Prayer…….

BFC mailed me this set of prayers, one for women and one for men (the one for men is deceptively short!!)

Do read it and let me know what you all think of them (even if you’ve read them before):-


 Before I lay me down to sleep,
 I pray for a man, who’s not a creep,
 One who’s handsome, smart and strong.
 One who loves to listen long,
 One who thinks before he speaks,
 One who’ll call, not wait for weeks.
 I pray he’s gainfully employed,
 When I spend his cash, won’t be annoyed.
 Pulls out my chair and opens my door,
 Massages my back and begs to do more.
 Oh! Send me a man who’ll make love to my mind,
 Knows what to answer to “how big is my behind?”
 I pray that this man will love me to no end,
 And always be my very best friend.


 I pray for a deaf-mute nymphomaniac
 with huge boobs who owns a liquor store and a golf course.
 This doesn’t rhyme and I don’t care.




Edited to add :-

I received another SMS from BFC on the same lines :-

Moods of a woman

An angel of truth & a dream of fiction…..

She’s afraid of a wasp, will scream at a mouse,

but will tackle a stranger alone in the house.

Sour as vinegar, sweet as a rose,

she’ll kiss you one minute then turn up her nose.

She’ll win you in rage, enchant you in silk,

She’ll be stronger than brandy, milder than milk.

At times she’ll be vengeful, merry and sad,

she’ll hate you like poison and love you like mad.

Where have the Monkeys gone?

Oh right.

They’re cooped up in this house.

"What are you doing SS??" "Nothing, just hanging around"

And here’s the other one, the master, the professional, one who is so fast at jimmying down the bed that repetitive clicks only resulted in a flash of blur. This is the clearest image I could capture :-

The master monkey

Sorry for the dull images. Something to do with a faulty camera, bad lighting, happy mood and much disturbance from the BF (now seriously, you didn’t really expect me to confess that I suck at clicking!! No seriously. I DONT. And don’t go by my earlier post on it. It must have been the flu influence!)

The twins have learnt to get down from the bed by themselves. As you can see, I have a box bed which is a little higher than the regular beds. It wasn’t easy for the kids to climb down from it. They didn’t even attempt it.

But for the last two weeks, the tornado called RS took it up as a challenge to climb up and get down from the different furniture at home . It was surprising to see a 15 month-old diligently running to the sofa, clambering on it, getting down, running to the settee, clambering on, getting down, running to the centre-table, clambering on , getting down and then repeating all the furniture once again till she mastered the act.

The first time she tried getting off my bed nearly gave me a heart attack. There she was, holding on to the sheets, calling out pitifully, her feet still a foot away from the floor, yet not able to haul herself up back again. I rescued her in time. Just to see her repeating the stunt once again. She carried on with it till she became a pro at it. Being the loyal follower that SS is, he immediately followed his sister’s act with his own, irrespective of the fact that RS had practised earlier, and he hadn’t.

He took a nasty fall, a horrid lump on the head and lots of cuddling from a petrified momma. Not that it helped any. He was back at it with a bang.

Sigh. You really can’t teach kids what they don’t want to learn.

And you can’t make them un-learn what they’ve put effort into learning.

Such is life, I guess.

And I know, I just know,they are going to hate studies (when we come to it).

Fruits & Flowers

We had a fruit and flower decoration in our office two weeks back. Its kind of late, I know, but I finally found time to download the pics from my mobile (couldn’t take a camera to office. Isn’t allowed 😦 ). The official photographer didn’t do justice to some of the entries.

On the other hand, I’ve *ahem* managed to take some scintillating shots of the entry made by my friends, SK and SC. They did a fruit AND flower decoration on their table where others had simply resorted to either fruit OR flower.

Anyhow, check out the fruits of the efforts.Ooops, I meant, the deco, of course 🙂

So regal

This is a peacock made out of watermelon. Here’s a top view of the same :-

Fruits & Flowers

The flower arrangement on the left is a toy tractor mounted with the green flower sponge.  SK decorated it with Gerberas and Carnations . The flower vase on the right is a collection of carnations and lillies (which smelt divine!!)

I love those lillies

A tractor full of flowers

And the proud creators of the display :-

SK and SC, smiling for the judges 🙂

Unfortunately, my friends didn’t win the award, though their efforts were lauded by one and all.

The prize winning entry for the flower category went to another friend, AL :-

A Bouquet for the judges

and the one in the fruit category went to a group that had a Zoo as their theme where the different animals were made out of fruits/vegetables (actually, mostly vegetables) :-

Karela Crocodile

Capsicum 'Frogs' (but really, don't they look more like Crabs??)

 Another fruit display that I loved, was this one :-

Absolutely delectable 🙂

And my role, well, I was the audience, that most important party of any event, the cheer-leader(sans the skimpy outfits) who yells out sounds of encouragement to their friends who are seriously convinced they are going to score the lowest if I continue cheering them 😀

I thought of waiting for the official snaps to come in, but when they did I realized mine were far better.

 Anyhow,thats all for now. Next post will come in post lunch.

Till then, Ciao 🙂
