sometimes i say the wrong thing at the right time, but the thing remains that the then wrong thing is such that had i said the right thing then it would have been wrong not to say the wrong thing instead. But does that make it the right thing?
Get it?

Head & Neck...Dissection.

The first cervical vertebra is called Atlas because it supports the head as the Greek God Atlas supported the heavens on his shoulder.Quick death from hanging occurs when the transverse ligament of atlas snaps and the dens brushes the lower medulla and the adjacent spinal cord.

We disturbed the maggots,
they were havin' a feast
ov the old man's brain
or what was left indeed.

We hacked, we sawed, we thumped, we 'ammered
and broke into his vault of memories

it had all turned to mush, we held our noses,
we couldn't bear to breath.
there was nothing to study but we did learn this,
if we didn't this was were we would be...

actually we did none of those things.....
but it may not have been an old man after all.....
its strange when knowing something you didn't before gives entirely new meaning to conservations, writings, attitudes and behaviors. things you dismissed at the time as being mere jargon come back and slap you in the face.....stupid! stupid! what were you thinking?
But that is neither here nor there.....do you see me caring?
*sighhhhh*

Absolute Power?

Am i jealous? A bit....but who's not. They all know its more of a publicity stunt anyway... The whole class is practically begging him not to.....the girls that is...they just love an issue to haggle their pretty little heads over....
The boys don't really care that much. If he goes, another one comes up....Why are they so bent on him then?
True he seems the most religious, and he does have the administrative qualities and skills required for the post, but that doesn't mean there aren't others. And they're already lined up....waiting like a tiger ready to pounce....

First we have the Prince.....He's smart...he's lean....but he's no woman's dream......he's certainly got all the connections in the right places....and he's more than capable of handling the everyday snags and hitches...but there is the minor set back of him coming packaged with a host of other junior c.r.s' and the thing remains.....wouldn't he be corrupted from the absolute power?

Then there is Bond. Whose name's Bond. Just why all the hostilites have been in his favour straight from the start is a mystery to many.......but he has the guts for the job and is advancing rapidly with his diplomacy.....Not at all a bad option....but who's to say he mightn't just curb under the pressure...eh?

Though they won't admit it in a million years, there are always those fallen stars aspiring to be the one who get the double scoop and the free coupons and don't mind the responsibility as well......and they're not pretty happy about the whole situation.... labeling it all as "politics" and "show-sha" that some people just can't live without.
I'm going over to sit on their bench.

He wishes for the cloths of heaven.....

Had I the heaven’s embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Yeats.

This challenge has me scared to my bones...? Never.

excuse me! but no.... i don't feel like bantering around with someone i've never even talked to in real life....whose response i’ve utterly no idea will be like....and it doesn’t help when they’ve already made it to the list of people with gauche interactions that weren’t followed up or supposed to be…so no....I’ll stay right where I am thank you…till there is some...? And the disparagement........so not heartening either.

Strange Clouds.....

I watched the fields flash past. Bronze, straw coloured rectangles……some bare, some sprinkled with the odd cattle….others with boundaries of tall yews….alternating with the rich, murky brown of the freshly tilled land……the smooth khaki of the dry areas in between.
The mud houses….adorned with mud cakes…the wooden ploughs, carts…the water gushing from the tube well….goats  skipping around merrily….cows swooshing off flies with their tails…the oxen trudging steadily through the fields…the farmer wiping his brow…his coven carrying baskets on their heads….the corn ripe and ready to be picked….
I leaned my face against the pleasantly warm pane of the window….the rest of me comfortably cool. I could look on forever at the sights whizzing past me…
I looked at the sky. It was clear except for a single huge tuft that looked like a small boat pulling a large clam shaped, mushroom cloud in its wake…with a wide halo on its top…that seemed to be spinning round and  round…
And that left my thoughts in a whirl…….

o boy...

This was found on the notepad thingy in the sidebar…..
What can I say….they get their inspiration from me….;)
We’ll call them the Marister and the Nabster….!

56.
The disappointment was almost as great as when I’d got the result of that God-forsaken Entry Test…but the crucial difference that made it all the more frustrating was that I hadn’t prepared for the test…but the substage I was more than ready to give.
Having gone through all the topics with PB only a day before and spending more than 6 hours straight pouring over B.D., KLM and whatnot…I had no idea at all that what awaited me was “Beta! Aap B.D. se rattaay lagaani ki bajaaye Last se parh kar aya karein…”
I mean honestly, two in a row? Ironically the last substage was with the same sir, who came as late as he could manage and spent more time cross-questioning me about THI, Doctor’s Hospital and Rabwah. He said he’d heard how they had the best cardiologists there….i mentioned General Noori. He said he had some heart problems and the General had come highly recommended so he’d be paying a visit…I said he was more than welcome any time….
He asked about dad…I said he could have all the Sevo-fllourane, Iso-flourane, Propofol, Ketamine and  Thiopentone Sodium whenever he wanted….told him that anesthesia was invented by a dentist….hah…And so on and so forth….till he managed at last to ask me about Fascia Colli, SCM and the cervical plexus…..and that’s it.
Cut to me feeling very Jubilant and satisfied and thinking it had all gone very well to looking at the DH notice board an hour later and going….WTF!
Someone was absent that day so PB’s doubting the wisdom of his words :s

O and some people seem to think that everything i write on my blogs is in fact...true.
FYI dudes...sometimes or rather most, i get a wee bit carried away...as h.f. so explicitly explained...i'd rather not. Who knows what people might read into things...
aaaand....found a new link today that proves i've been right alllllllll along. There.
DM, looking over my shoulder:
"...and i want an official apology..."
Me...meekly: "...okay."

As Always

apparently its quite impossible to hold the substage the day its meant to be...
i mean why not...one day's not gonna change much...
but still, who's complaining :D
and i get to go to the video show thingy!
which beats being grilled about stringy muscles and vessels any day.

The Princess, Her Prince and an Ounce of Stupidity

or perhaps a bit more than an ounce...

It was only after re-reading the day's texts as i lay in bed after giving up on understanding the triangles of neck that had been so avidly described by Dr. Fossa in his boooring lectures....

And it seemed that i had misinterpreted the meaning of a kind of accusation and instead had shared secrets that would better be kept....well....well hidden.

As usual, my guide in matters such as these is DM so it was to him my next call was.
DM picked up on the first ring and asked me to call back as he was in the loo.
Undeterred, i urged him of the delicacy of the matter but was unfeelingly put on hold.
When he did reply it was after a certain amount of cursing and profanities to his benefit which had he heard, probably would have all been written down, as he says..."for future use".

"What would be the natural response of a girl when you unknowingly shared a piece of information that you mistakenly understood to be what she was asking for in the first place, not withstanding the consequences it would have on the said matter to which the information pertained to in the first place; if a) she already knew of the matter or b) if she was as ignorant of it as i am of ant. triangles of neck or c) if she had just heard rumours about it?"

The low grunting noise DM made in response was quite disturbing and could have easily been misunderstood for a recurrence of his earlier involvements; nevertheless it was not a second later that he was ready with his answer.

"The response of course could be calculated by judging a variety of both internal and external environmental variables whose presence as unknown to me cannot be of any particular use in recapitulating the scene in my mind whose importance in answering your question is as pivotal as the latest theory put forward by the theologians to explore the nature of divinity without reference to tradition that promises to........"

"Aargh! Okay...its about the princess."

"Elementary! Now that, my friend would have been the cue for my overactive brain to dwelve into the depths of your problem before i started on topics that obviously are much too complicated for your infinitesimal brain to comprehend had you only mentioned it alongside your neatly framed query regarding the........."

"Just answer the question man!"

"I was indeed getting to it.
And the answer is no. She was as wholly oblivious of the fact that you are so cleverly trying not to put in words that her curosity was at once spiked and after conferring with one of her friends she discarded the knowledge as of no value to her other than to use in one of her batterings with the mastermind."

"That's it? An unusually short answer from a person of your caliber...."

I seemed to have a touched a nerve for the sudden silence that ensued was emptier than a banker's heart.

"Don't be ridiculous. I was merely struck suddenly by the aftereffects of the whole situation that you have so clearly messed up and which i now see reflected in your manner that bother me and i can't help pondering over the fact that you chose to leave the matter unattended by my expert advice when i was right there all the time...."

Disregarding the accusation i followed up.
"And what would you advise in such a situation?"

"I would say, As you were......"

And to counter.........

If there's one thing I learned is that there would be no gossip without secrets. ...you might be brave enough to reveal your secret only to have it used against you. ...or someone else's secret might affect you in unexpected ways. ...there are some secrets you're only too happy to keep. ...others surface, only to be buried away deeper than they were before. ...but the most powerful secrets are the truths you thought you could never reveal......but once spoken, change everything. But don't worry, B, the brightest stars burn out the fastest, or at least that's what I heard. Waiting for a star to fall.

"If you want to learn etiquette, learn it from the Islamabadis."
This was said by the Indian High Commissioner based in Pakistan and was quoted in a beautiful article written by an Indian journalist.
I thought it was important that I highlight this fact=) 

Saw a Lemon tree....

I'm sitting here in the boring room
It's just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I'm wasting my time
I got nothing to do
I'm hanging around
I'm waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder
