Because I’ve nothing else to say except for that I love the rain but I fear if I say any more on the subject, there will be petitions to stop us blogging.

And if that happened what would sad people with no real lives (like us) do?

This week, my predominant ‘mood’ has been:

“Angry-fish : Now featuring sleepless eyes and grey ” I’m fuming” swirlies. Contact BWC here for further details.”


Oh, yeah.I’m going places with a frown like that, me!

The rain has remedied this to the extent that my teeth are back safely in my jaw where they belong, I’m no longer emitting self-created grey swirlies and bloodshot eyes, and have long since stopped flapping my fins in frustration*.Many thanks for all the Get Well wishes.No, really.Although, I don’t recommend coming within 100 miles of me with a 35″ pole this time tomorrow night (My doctor says it’s all brought on by chronic school-allergy.).Which means you’ll probably 1) Find a long rant on here tomorrow-I hate school!- my condolences (or) 2) Find the much-awaited (hey, a fish can dream!)-‘Bookmark’ edition for this month.It’s a long one, I’ll tell you that much.This because I will have four straight days of holidays, people- FOUR! Woohoo!

Ahem.This is the pathetic typical-of-five-year-olds-behaviour that School has caused.Do you feel my pain? You’d better be feeling my pain, that’s what.

And the reason for these holidays ( Don’t you just love how that word just rolls of your tongue? Holidays.Holidays! HOLidays!) is what leads to the rest of what my post is about. Diwali– Festival of Light, colour and sweets but most importantly-fireworks!

Let’s say it again : “WITH ME! Fireworks.” And be sure to say it like it’s a Bad Thing.This here is a pretty futile plea (seeing as ONE Indian – far as I know- reads the blog) but give it up, people.Join Fireworkaholics Anonymous.Burn up your store of- wait no, DON’T burn them! Go into rehab if you cannot stop! Er, OK, I’ll just cut out the drivel and say: this is one of those environment-thingies.Because really, a week’s worth of explosions is a LOT.I should know.Last year, we were at the airport to receive my aunt sometime around Diwali- and we couldn’t see 2 feet under our noses ( What do we want to look at that’s 2 feet under our noses? I dunno.But we couldn’t if we’d wanted to.) for all the smoke that filled the place.Chokecoughgasp! OK, Sorry.Melodrama is just..catchy. Oh, wait then! I’ll go into rehab for Melodrama and you go in for firework-addiction! It’s a date er, deal .

If that wasn’t convincing enough ( and I suspect it wasn’t..), take a look at this :

And these:

Enjoy the sweets and the holidays, though- don’t let me put you off! Even though while you’re busy picking out rockets, I will be praying (not-so-secretly) for it to rain on your parade, so to say.I suppose you’ll be wanting those Get Well wishes back, then? Sigh.


*Alliteration score !

  3. Complain about school
  4. Eat
  5. Went to CCD for LucidInsanity’s and Zonkt’s combined B’day treat.. (Was FUN!!)
  6. Read, Read And more Read

So, 2 books i wanna mention Princess and Brisingr

PRINCESS – By Jean Sasson:

Jean Sasson

This book is just amazing. It recounts the hardships Princess “Sultana” (name changed in the book to protect her identity) has to face as a Saudi royal woman. Written by Jean Sasson as if narrated by Princess “Sultana”, this book is a must-read. You don’t feel, even once,  like someone else has written the story in 1st person. It starts with “Sultana’s” childhooh and how she grows up into a woman surrounded by the men who “twist the Prophet’s (Muhammed) words for their needs” ,the horrors faced by Saudi women, and the “Male Dominance” beginning right with her brother.”Sultana” is a bold character who tried to defy the male-dominated society right from delaying the wearing of her Abaya. She is at the mercy of the men who surround her life – father, husband, brother etc.  It makes you feel very lucky to have not had to face such things.

This book is well written, and is not exactly what you would call on feminism. It is basically that “Sultana” wants people of the world to realize their plight. And there is this one line from the book that I like:

“If no-one knows of my existence, does that mean I do not exist?” – Princess Sultana

BRISINGR – a book that I’ve been waiting for, ever since I finished eldest.*Spoiler alert*

I have heard of many negative reviews about this book saying that this book is just a filler to drag time and stuff, but I feel it was a good book on the whole, I mean not as brilliant as Eragon/Eldest but ok, quite good. It wasn’t a disappointment for me, mainly cuz i didn’t read too many fan fics and theories online.

This book basically deals with Eragon’s promises to the different people he has made and how he tries to fulfill them. Eragon’s loyalty toward Roran makes him determined to bring Katrina back. He also marries them both. (It’s kinda weird to imagine the younger brother performing the marriage thingy for the older one!) I found Roran’s story quite annoying. He was just kinda very annoying with his “leading the troop” and great battles and everything.Then there’s Eragon, who as an elf-human hybrid is weird to picture and I would have preferred him to stay human. The truth about Brom being his father was kinda expected and wasn’t much of a shock to me. I loved the whole forging of the swords chapter. It was brilliantly written, very picturesque. And I love the sword and the idea that it bursts into flames when u say “Brisingr” The stuff about Eldunari was also also quite good. Though, I did feel a little sad when Oromis dies. There wasn’t much of action (ok there was, but not as much as i expected) but the revelations of Galbatorix’s and Shruikan’s power, Eragon’s mother, Solembum’s words and all were interesting. Saphira, my fave character, was, as always, brilliant. I have nothing to complain about her. Her character’s so strong and beautiful. You can’t help but love her!

I would say u HAVE to read, even if it isn’t as amazing as the previous two. I’m waiting for the last one now which hopefully, will be as good as I want it to.

P.S. I made that pic that sez Brisingr 😉
