Tag Archive: Fun

I’ll turn 23 in exactly 2 weeks. Although I’m trying to be all happy, something doesn’t seem right. I probably need a break. A good long break from the place where I just have my camera, all new set of people, beautiful beaches and land, awesome people.

“What do you want for your birthday?”, asked my brother.

“Maybe a job, nice car and tickets to Europe/Singapore/Canada?!”, I replied enthusiastically.

“Get a life boozo!”

Is this what a girl gets when she turns 23? A life from her brother?! NO! 😛
*This was pure sarcasm. No angry voices in the background or the devil in my head speaking.*

But honestly, I really need to get a life and get excited for my birthday. I don’t want a freaking sad birthday again! Me no likey.. :#

I thought I’ll try to reach 50 posts on my birthday. For which I need exactly 18 posts after this one.
*Cool thoughts only come in shower because my place is freaking boiling. It’s 116 F. No wonder Indians are dark with so much dark hair because we practically get baked & grilled & fried and even our hair follicle would want to escape. What was God thinking when he placed India so strategically just where the sun loves to dance!*

Anyhow. Jokes apart, 50 posts would be difficult but I can definitely give it a shot. 😀 It would be fun I guess. So now comes the most difficult part: The MATH! *scary background noise with a screechy scream*


18 posts in 14 days. And if you count my birthday day too, so 15 days.

15 days = 18 posts

1 day = (18/15) posts

∴ 1 day = 1.2 posts

Okay. I totally suck at math. This can be proved from the above equations. Because any smart or even an average 10 year old with basic knowledge of fractions can solve this in a jiffy. My math concept are even deeper than Marina Trench. *Sarcasm. And it sounds better when it’s said in Hindi* 😛

DIY Skeleton Leaves

I was really getting bored today, so I tried making Skeleton Leaves. Even though it was first in-my-senses try, it turned out better than I expected. And since I just wanted to get over with it quickly, I brushed it up with few basic colors.

Didn’t wanted to go for the Stone-age method of pressing the leaves for weeks etc., hence went for the quick and easy way out:

  1. Take a pan. Add water (at least half of the pan size or depending upon the number of leaves you’ll be putting in), baking soda (about 2-3 tsp) and baking powder (2-3 tsp).
  2. Boil the leaves till they are soft.
  3. Remove it from the fire and delicately rub of its flesh (keeping in mind that the structure doesn’t get torn).
  4. Bleach it. (I added Non-Fruit Vinegar for a quick result).
  5. Dye, paint or use it as it is on your greeting cards.
Here it is what it looks like:
