boredom, dogs and litchis...

well, summer hols have begun (ob), and so has the struggle to beat boredom. hence this post.. my family devouring litchis while watching inane programs on tv, or sifting thru varied channels... guess am not the only bored soul in here...

it rained here today. and we didnt let Doggie and gang come inside our house, so they werent exactly happy... oh yeah by the way.. Doggie happens to be a stray we've kinda adpoted, as in leaving accomdation (inside the house), he enjoys all the arrears including free food, water and medical attention as and when needed among others.

and hes Doggie cos well (at least 4 months back) he was what my mom called the epitome of doggieness. huge guy wid huger canines, hes the insolent self-centred self-proclaimed king of the lane who doesnt hesitate at all b4 barking at little kids and our next door neighbours ( :O ).. well... not so nice situations at times... :D

giving him company are two eccentric weirdos...

first one o em being...

merril (my sister named her that so dnt ask me) who loves 1.food, 2.jumpin on people 3. jumpin onto whatever chairs/cots u put (4 urself) outside wen u wanna enjoy the mausam 4. standing BANG in front of the car when ur about to start 5. staring at u if u happen to be arnd n arent pettin her/feedin her/payin her attn...

the other kid (hes the youngest) is a wonder-dog.. i suspect hes got supernatural powers.. hes a living suction pump... can suck anything n everything under the sun into his gut before you can say jack robinson.. and hence hes named sucker (my sister again took care of naamkaran) other abilites include poppin outta nowhere when ur engaged in ne activity regarding food, even if ur talkin to ur human counterparts abt wats cookin...

weirdos... but yeah they are the nocturnal company i have.. as in im gate ke is taraf ye teeno us taraf...

at around 2 minutes to midnight (luv dat song!!! sorry....) if i go outside to breathe in the (relatively) fresh air, i feel a leather belt sorta thing whackin me on the knee. turns out to be Doggies tail... so i try shooing him away... meanwhile sucker comes up and somehow decides i was furtively sharing a midnight snack wid Doggie.. he cant bear this treason on my part and so my hands get smelt and feet get licked. and oh yeah all this while the door was open (since i was an unsuspecting victim to the tail-attack), so merril sneaks inside and i catch her just before shes about to hop on to my bed..

n o yeah.. in case m not so lucky my dad wakes up to have water or smthn n sees me struggling wid merril. and so wid my arms around the dog's tummy, wid her hind legs kickin my knees and forelegs my shoulders, i gtta lisn 2 ma dad yell at me... sheesh....

but yeah all said and done they are adorable.... really makes ur day seein em bitin each others tails (sucker doin most f d bitin), or Doggie jus comin n sittin between ur legs wen u sittin on d park wall... hmm... and yeah u dont get bored wid em arnd...

ok.. dinner time... got impatient losers wid tails n long noses waitin outside n ma mom wid der food waitin in d kitchen...

tata fr now..

a rush of blood to the head

ok.. i have no idea why im doin this... i guess boredom's finally done me in... but neway... wat follows, is a song by coldplay.. rush of blood to the head... the lyrics... i guess some sorta weird rush o blood to MY head...

so well here goes..

He said Im gonna buy this place and burn it down
Im gonna put it six feet underground
He said Im gonna buy this place and watch it fall
Stand here beside me baby in the crumbling walls
Oh Im gonna buy this place and start a fire
Stand here until I fill all your hearts desires
Because Im gonna buy this place and see it burn
Do back the things it did to you in return

Ah,ah,ah

He said oh Im gonna buy a gun and start a war
If you can tell me something worth fighting for
Oh and Im gonna buy this place, thats what I said
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head

And honey
All the movements youre starting to make
See me crumble and fall on my face
And I know the mistakes that I made
See it all disappear without a trace
And they call as they beckon you on
They say start as you mean to go on
Start as you mean to go on

He said Im gonna buy this place and see it go
Stand here beside me baby watch the orange glow
Somell laugh and some just sit and cry
But you just sit down there and you wonder why
So Im gonna buy a gun and start a war
If you can tell me something worth fighting for
Im gonna buy this place, thats what I said
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head

And honey
All the movements youre starting to make
See me crumble and fall on my face
And I know the mistakes that I made
See it all disappear without a trace
And they call as they beckon you on
They said start as you mean to go on
As you mean to go on, as you mean to go on

So meet me by the bridge, meet me by the lane
When am I going to see that pretty face again
Meet me on the road, meet me where I said
Blame it all upon
A rush of blood to the head
