That Gut Feeling

March 26, 2009


When we’re put in a situation that requires us to choose..say between right and wrong, yes or no, with or without cheese..we often tend to think too hard. Be it the simplest of choices or the matter-of-life-and-death decisions, we try and weigh out the pros and cons, get a second opinion or even toss a […]

Fearing Regret / Regretting Fear

March 20, 2009


In my opinion, the scariest thing in the whole world is the fear of the unknown. It’s like you’re hanging off a cliff in pitch black…not knowing whether to let go, or hang on until help arrives. Because for all you know, the floor could be littered with jagged rocks waiting to rip you to […]

The Way the Cookie Crumbles

March 9, 2009


I’ve always loved fortune cookies. Ever since I was that fat kid who’d pig out on chinese food (sad, but true), I’d wait for the end of the meal to the part they served up those absurdly shaped biscuits. I’d pick the one I thought held my fortune, and believe with all my heart that […]

Help Yourself.

March 2, 2009


We live in a troubled world my friends. A world filled with people so disturbed, that we turn to other human beings to quell our fears..for a fee. Therapists, Lifecoaches, Self-help books; turns out you can make a living doing just about anything.A series of therapeutic sessions on ‘positive thinking’and ‘prioritizing your goals’ is guaranteed […]

Fit or Fat?

February 24, 2009


The thing about winter (even the 14 degree sort we have here), is that it turns all us mortals into unhealthy blobs of lazy. It’s too cold to do anything outside so you just want to curl up in bed, comforted by the warmth of your laptop…or a tub of icecream.So it came as no […]

Oh L’Amour!

February 12, 2009

0’s that time of year again folks. The month of lurrve / amour / pyaar / hubb. That dreaded month where Hallmark pukes out it’s entire mush collection, rose bushes are fed an over-dose of fertilizer, and 3rd-world children in a workshop somewhere are made to stop working on those footballs and divert their time […]

Ladies Only

January 28, 2009


I just finished reading this fab book : A Men’s Guide to the Women’s Bathroom. A light read of course; but i’m inspired. Turns out there’s a lot you boys don’t know about the goings-on of the ladies loo..the happenings within. Let me tell you a thing or two about women’s bathrooms gentlemen. They’re pretty. […]

Curtain Call

December 30, 2008


Blegh. It’s that time again. Year-end. The air is dense with reflection. No, the heavens have not been engulfed by a swarm of mirrors; the atmosphere of late is just heavy with intense thoughts of deliberating folks.Folks who take time off to look back on what they’ve achieved this past year (blah, blah), and to […]

Happy New Year?

December 28, 2008


Disgusting. Heartless. Mindless and Brutish. Oh..i’m being nice here. If i didn’t make it a point to censor this blog I could come up with a few more terms befitting these barbaric animals. 250 people were killed yesterday. Within the space of a few minutes, 250 Palestinians were gunned down like they were worth nothing. […]

Toon Tutors

December 27, 2008


It’s true when they say that most of life’s lessons are taught outside the classroom. Most of mine I’ve learned from my fav. cartoon characters. – Wile E. Coyote taught me the importance of perseverence. One day he will get that damn bird! – Daffy Duck taught me that people will still love you even […]
