“Later that day…”

February 15, 2006

“Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.”

Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and The City.


Ne Me Quitte Pas

February 14, 2006

I am in a state of silence… I’ve been speechless the past few days due to the continuous battles occurring in my head… that obviously are at conflict with my heart… It’s V-Day… No Comment..

Though I have not heard this song for years… literally 5 if not more… these lyrics have been lingering in my head all day… to all you hopeless romantics, enjoy :)
Ne me quitte pas
Il faut oublier
Tout peut s’oublier
Qui s’enfuit déjà
Oublier le temps
Des malentendus
Et le temps perdu
A savoir comment
Oublier ces heures
Qui tuaient parfois
A coups de pourquoi
Le cœur du bonheur
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

Moi je t’offrirai
Des perles de pluie
Venues de pays
Où il ne pleut pas
Je creuserai la terre
Jusqu’après ma mort
Pour couvrir ton corps
D’or et de lumière
Je ferai un domaine
Où l’amour sera roi
Où l’amour sera loi
Où tu seras reine
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

Ne me quitte pas
Je t’inventerai
Des mots insensés
Que tu comprendras
Je te parlerai
De ces amants-là
Qui ont vu deux fois
Leurs cœurs s’embraser
Je te raconterai
L’histoire de ce roi
Mort de n’avoir pas
Pu te rencontrer
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

On a vu souvent
Rejaillir le feu
D’un ancien volcan
Qu’on croyait trop vieux
Il est paraît-il
Des terres brûlées
Donnant plus de blé
Qu’un meilleur avril
Et quand vient le soir
Pour qu’un ciel flamboie
Le rouge et le noir
Ne s’épousent-ils pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas

Ne me quitte pas
Je ne vais plus pleurer
Je ne vais plus parler
Je me cacherai là
A te regarder
Danser et sourire
Et à t’écouter
Chanter et puis rire
Laisse-moi devenir
L’ombre de ton ombre
L’ombre de ta main
L’ombre de ton chien
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas
Ne me quitte pas.

The Textbook Analogy

February 9, 2006

The Textbook Analogy !!

Someone very dear to me was a little confused regarding her current status in life… and not to mention a few other interesting propositions that came her way that increased her confusion… So on one of her sleepless nights she confined in me and for one reason or another I didn’t want to stick to the safe, conventional answer of “do what feels right” or “I can’t say coz u know ur situation better” or any of that running away cr*p.. and I was seriously sick of giving mature, reasonable and proper advice, coz frankly I’ve given up on myself let alone spread my orthodox “the right thing to do” attitude to the ppl I love… so I improvised… on the spot I made up some lame analogy that ironically made sense…

Please don’t hate me, it’s totally not the way I think, but exactly the way I wish i did :P not… anyways it’s just for laughs…


The Textbook analogy


me: what’s ur priority in life right now ?
her: studies (I instantly get an image of textbooks in my head)
me: ok so worry about that now and we’ll take it step by step from there.. but I’m here if you need anything.
her: thanks sweetie
me: besides treat them like textbooks, (this applies to ladies and gents) when the time declares it you attain them. You use them for the time needed then you have the following options :

1. Return them, sell them or throw them.. i.e: u used them for a purpose, got what you needed and have no more use for them.
2. Shelve them, you don’t want to let go of them in case of future reference, so they’re in close proximity; yet, at a decent distance.
3. Keep them, the books u love, can’t live without, will need everyday for the rest of ur life, place them on ur nightstand or under ur pillow for safe keeping…

This analogy applies to everyone.. not only couples, crushes… but even friends and colleagues… seriously it does make sense…

But not with me… you know why ?? I’ve never thrown a book in my life !! I have all the books I’ve owned since Fairytales for 6 year olds :P seriously !!! and planning to build my own in house library too !! :P

So any good analogies out there ??


Plzzzz be as blunt, nasty, cruel and ridiculous as you like :)
