Haven’t had a contest for a long long time now, I have also run out of jokes or what to say (you can stop laughing as me not having something to say , seldom happens), I have been lucky too.. Haven’t had any thumbs downs or other controversies come up lately , Not been used as a hired gun too lately .. SO ALL IS WELL IN THE BLOGWORLD at least for me it seems .. phewwwwwwwwwwwww , that’s why the happy mood to give away the award although many may not still like it ..

ALSO Christmas is coming .. Santa is getting ready with all the gifts and presents , so I thought I will start before him.. for once, he comes no will remember the mare mortal me ….. I thought I will catch you all early he he he he

So here is the question…

What might this be , I mean the WHITE stuff in the picture ..  Not the trees and the fields in the background 🙂   To win I am looking for what it is  and where it is coming from ? 

So get your thinking hats on ..

And this is what you win .. For correct answers ..

I have set the Comment Moderation on .. (the first  Five get the award and the Next Five will get a big thank you for participating 🙂 )… well they did say its not all about winning . its the participation that matter most ..

Thank you for participating

Cricket is a funny game don’t you think, Na I don’t mean the way India are playing at the moment in the Second test against  England getting thrashed . so much for being a spin playing nation who has world-class spinners and what not .. Well here we are our spinners can’t get wickets .. while the foreigners are getting all the wickets …

Our  batsmen well again can do bugger all.. they are getting out to SPINNER which they are supposed to play properly and Experts in.. Anyway forgetting about that .. Cricket is a funny .. it’s the only game where if you hit a ball out of the ground you get 6  runs or 6 points ..

But here is a thought – > There is this batsmen all padded up with a helmet on , Pads all over him , leg pads – thigh pads – gloves , protecting him all over .. and yet there  is this guy sitting outside without a shirt , a beer in hand relaxing and a BALL HITS HIM.. what happens the Batsmen gets  6 runs .. and the bloke nothing ..  other than a BUMP on his head … 🙂

Have You seen the Olympic opening ceremony, Especially when they all come out the athletes I mean representing their countries .. Now there are some countries which we have never heard of , The opening ceremony is the only time we hear the names . I mean at least I have not heard of some of them ,  Where do these  countries exist and how come only during Olympics we find them, I bet the person who is announcing the names of the countries is just sitting and making up the names ..

and Here is the team from  “Make-up-Istaan” or  “Made-Up-istaan”  .. and then I think the same man runs, changes his jacket and come out with a different flag “he-is-Back_istaaan”

****************

I had this brain wave ,  We are lucky nowadays that phones have gone digital and with the advent of mobile phones things have changed a lot , But cast you mind back to the good old days .. Those big Black Telephones.. which have a Dialler and you have to put the tip of your finger to dial the number ….

Right Ne think about the emergency numbers , WHO was the intelligent person who decided on the numbers 999..   Now imagine there is an emergency , someone is laying on the road hit by a truck or something , you run to the nearest phone booth  and it is that OLD dialler phone ..

You are rolling the digit 9.. and then  letting it go ..

rolling again and letting it go ..

rolling the number 9 and then letting it go,.

Operator – “What’s the emergency ” ..

You– “Well its OK .. the person is DEAD now ” .. it takes so long to dial the Three numbers .. 🙂

****************

Ok  Another Thing.. Has anyone of you ever walked into a room and Forgotten .. what you wanted or the Reason you came to that room to .. Right .. what do you do .. You stand and then you ask yourself

“WHY DID I COME INTO THIS ROOM” .. off course in your own mind,  WHYYYYYYYYYYY.. why do you ask that ..

Because .. YOU Don’t know why you are in the ROOM .. so why will you ask yourself  for HELP 🙂

****************

Celebrations are over birthday went good, then came Diwali, I am not sure what words to use to describe the fun or good time , so I will do the next best I can do, Put some pictures, I had a couple of videos taken but they are too big to be put here, hence just some pictures.

11-11-12 AGAIN

Posted: November 11, 2012 in Aging, Birthdays
Tags: , ,

Right its that time of the year again.. last year it was The 11th Day of the 11 Month and 11th year of the 2000 …  11-11-11.. The media had gone on and on about how special that day was , how the sun and scorpion etc etc are in perfect shape, I did put a lottery but nothing came of it .. I guess it worked lucky only for a few LUCKY.. 🙂

A lot has happened in the last one year I have met some lovely people , lost a few people too, but overall its been a good year  rather a very good year. I don’t have any qualms or anything to share or say, I just hope and pray that life continues like this on its own merry way. The ups and downs are the way of life, I was reading a lovely blog where someone had put a comment and it sort of touched my heart how true it is what the commentator has written .. She says

” when life pulls you,wrenches you, the same life hugs you and kisses you and love you back.. we just need to know to be strong and be positive about life. ” by Ashwathy here

What a lovely thought it is and so true, Life is funny it gives us all the bad things but it also provides us all the beautiful things to, it  throws us to dogs ot be eaten up, to be broken and what not but then LIFE itself shows us how to be strong and move on and overcome the problems .. it teaches us again how to love – hug and live again. How to deal with the dogs once again in life.. But the so called dogs Keep returning time and again, hopefully the second time they come life would have taught us how to prepare ourself for that time ..

and if we get bitten again then hopefully this time we can move on FASTER..

Right enough of the philosophy etc , today is my birthday and I don’t think I have anything new to say, this blog has made me a open book everyone knows about me , Although with the recent few mis-haps I do wish I was anonymous, the mis-haps have led to people probably thinking I am a idiot.. BUT I have a piece that I want to say to all those people who think I am an idiot which is ..

There is another thing that I still can share today , it is actually something that I DONT LIKE 🙂 , If someone asks me to go out for food (lunch – dinner  etc),  I don’t like to going to a sophisticated places.

I have a simple reason because all these posh places they make you look like an idiot, with there fancy names given to the dishes I mean here are some examples ..

Subzsaag Gohst

Chicken Tikka Masala (Desi)  (Now what could DESI possibly be ) .. 

Butter chicken is a butter chicken no matter how well you sugar coat it. I actually feel embarrassed sometimes because 99% of the times I don’t understand the fancy names and If you with someone , especially if with someone you want to impress you are doomed because SHE is bound to Ask “Bikram what is this “.. and you look Now what ..  WHERE DO THESE people get the names ..

Here is a thing if you are going on a date and you want to show that you are in control , feel like a man there is only one place that you can take ..  one place alone and that is .. Can you guesssssssss .. go on

its NANDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSsssssssssssssssss

and I have a perfect – legitimate reason for that it is because when you go to nando’s you can look like you know your way ..

you arrive and you are greeting at the door by a person “Hello sir, have you been to nando’s before ” oh yes I have and that’s all the person does at the dooor ..

you go and take a seat, I usually take the corner seat, its good to sit there as no one can disturb you , I hate people who keep staring at you .. or want to know what you have in your plate or what you have ordered ..

so the person comes what would you like .. to drink .. You feel confident now also checking the menu for drinks because does it matter NOOOOOOOOOO  everything seems to be the same,  how wrong can you go on ordering drinks.. and simple COKE works fine 🙂  universal name , works the same whatever country you are in 🙂

and now comes the best part  this leads us to the foood .. DO YOU LIKE CHICKEN

goooooooooooooooooooooooodddddddddddddd

because that’s all that is served … it’s all CHICKEN .. .. Awesome I am sure you cant go wrong with that or can you ?

and then comes the ideal condition when your girl looks romantically in your eyes and says in that beautiful voice of her .. “Bikram .. whats PIRI PIRI”

oh yesssssssssssss ..  this is a good question .. AH HA .. time for rise and SHINE people 🙂  because you can say anything here .. its no big secret  since NO ONE seems to have any answer .. and you can make up anything that you want to and she will still be so impressed with it all

“piri Piri ” MY dear is a blend of this AROMATIC spices .. bonded together with something yummmy …

oooh and she is mineeeeeeeeeeeeeee 🙂 … Time to pay for the foood and ……………. shall leave the rest for your imagination …

Knowing me , I would say something stupid and she will get angry and walk away .. there goes my birthday celebrationsssssssss 🙂  he he he he

I am sure many of you are going to say , I have somehow managed to make this post also into a FOOD post , I guess Food is the best way to celebration along with a bit of daroo too he he he he ..

Today being a sunday still I have work to do .. It is remembrance day here to remember the members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty during the world war.

S0 all you lovely people .. Do me a favour please remember me in your prayers today,  I know we have not met with each other all those people who come and visit this blog , But please take a minute out…

Those who don’t drink have a some coke-shoke – paani-waani .. and those who drink have a peg-sheg . daroo-sharoo … Cheers everyone .. .. Thank you all who are wishing me , wished me and those who forgot my birthday in spite of me mentioning everywhere making a big issue of it at all the places :( .. not happy now

Have a sweet thing for me .. I know many will say oh they are dieting and what no.. But I believe that the word DIET in Dieting stands for this ..

Thank you so much everyone

Ps. :- Sorry have not responded to the comments in previous post.. Will do so ASAP.. 🙂

Thursday Challenge : Orange( (Flowers, Produce, Candy, Signs, Clothing, Vehicles,…)

Although the hints don’t have what I am going to put for Orange .. yet I hope it works ..

 

 

 

Now that I have seen the pictures , they don’t look THAT ORANGE.. but original one’s do look orange ..

 

After the previous couple of posts I thought I should change the scenario a bit , but for the life of me I have been unable to think of something remotely interesting.  I was a bit on the senty side too thinking of the childhood days and days back home 🙂 Yeah i know you going to say here we go again 🙂

When I remembered the first book that majority of us read the one where they teach us alphabets, The A and B and C’s .. how they have all these examples for each alphabet and they are all so simple , examples

A for apple B for Ball C for Cat and so on .. TILL you reach “X” .. and X is for  Xylophone ..

Now this caught my attention imagine the first exotic word you get to learn.. Xylophoneeeeeeeeeee 🙂  .. its my favourite

I mean the first think you learn as you are growing up, the most important word you will learn as you are growing up XYLOPHONE..

You are two or three years old learning this .. one of the most important 26 things you will learn Xylophone ..

When you grow up, probably there is a big BIG percentage that you will never be a xylophone player in your life, you will probably never meet a xylophone player in your life. I have never seen one or anyone playing it ever so far .. But here it is X for Xylophone

The only word invented for me to say when I reach X

Then I grew up and became mature (so I think), I am an adult and we are dealing with all these posh words the Alpha’s  Bravo’s  Charlie’s. Foxtrot, . Oscar and the ever so Exotic Zulu’s ..

Now these words are not taught to us , unless off-course we are in the police force or some other force that needs such words to tell the spellings ..

Now I can understand the reason behind using this Phonics as they are called, Because sometimes it gets difficult to pronounce names or words in the way they are supposed to be , because of different dialect and all ..

Believe me,  here in uk with euro opening up, the number of polish or Latvian names that I come across, Which I can’t pronounce at all.

I use to get angry at British not being able it say BIKRAM.. good I did not say its BikramJIT 🙂 ..

Bikram became  bikraaaaaaaam.. or bik or B and what not .. but blimey its like climbing the mountain .. giving a name to control to get some info..
I am on the phone trying to give my address to some insurance guy . .post code is P20 — ..

He says what.. B for ..

No I say P.. P for  and ohhhhhh at that precise moment my mind goes blank what .. what ..

What is it P for .. hmmm  Psychology ..

Oh .. S . 20  the guy says .. and I don’t know which was to look 🙂

Sometimes we also invent new words , which is Funny like if it is B i have usually said B for . BIKRAM 🙂 the guy on the other side is now thinking what the hell did I just say ..or i invent a new word B for Bougart..

or if its N20 – the guy says is that M for money .. NO  You Pillock its N for Nougartttt ..

Another funny part is, Well That I have experienced is that usually when we are trying to remember some meaningful word for the alphabet , there is all that FILTH that comes to your mind..

I am sure many will agree to it , although you may deny it 🙂  go on  try it .. you forget the words .. do try it , I was asked something and I had to say S something .. the girl asked me is it F for foxtrot

No its S for Sex .. (I said a few more words .. But did not want to put on this blog,  I am sure all your minds are probably Getting the RIGHT words ..So ahmm ahmm ).. stop ..

She got upset and shouted  Supervisor..

I said YEAH l That’s the one – S for supervisor 🙂

I am mischievous too sometimes  and can be funny too if they ask G for ..

I say Gnome

Try it sometime everyone 🙂

Have a Great day people .. and keep smiling .. for smile and the world smiles with you 🙂
