Some random thoughts

-Lindt Excellence is an amazing range of dark chocolates. Of course ANYTHING Lindt is amazing. I am relishing the Chilli flavour latest. Anyone who has a passion for spice should try it out. It has a mild spicy edge to it. Last year when a colleague was visiting Germany, I had him bring the Orange in this range for me, he also picked up the Chilli one and everyone was very excited to see what its like. We picked up one in SPAR on our last trip. Really, the SPAR Lindt cooler is a life-saver. No more waiting for someone to visit Europe for all those Lindts :D :D

-Two of the blogs I regularly read are publishing books! Ohh god. I think I should publish one too. Only I wonder what I should be writing about.

-What do you do when you intended to say something, put it off for long enough and ouch! something happens where if you now say what you intended to say in the first place, you risk being politically incorrect. Damn!

-When I read some of my old posts I cringe with embarrassment. At my gaucherie in writing. Maybe a few years later I will read this and cringe. So cringing seems inevitable overall.

-I want Rohan to go to either Bishop Cotton or NPS or some such school. I think getting into these schools is tough. So in case he doesn't clear the exam, I am planning to give a monologue to the principal (or whoever will listen) on how I got admitted into my school. Apparently when I took the test at Ann's, I didn't open my mouth (can you BELIEVE THAT?!) and so the Principal (that Sr. Rose, I tell you, she always used to fuss for everything, everything!) marked my application in bold with the letters "D U M B". So my mom had to have her dad's friend in the DEO's office pull some strings and I finally got in. When I finished in '95, I topped the class, so there, Sr. Rose! No one can judge anyone's potential when they are a mere 3.5 years old. That is the material point. And this shall be my argument for him as well ;)

@Rupa - It really gave my mom the jeepers worrying that I won't ever get admitted into any school apparently.

@Sri - Yeah, those silly tests, and my mom says I didn't open my mouth at all although I was otherwise quite talkative at home ;)

SK said...

DivSu said...

@SK - Apparently I am obsessed with how things need to be done as per ones age :)

@Puts - Auna, kanukko oka sari mari ;)

Rupa said...

Oh then I have age fetish too....I keep saying that one should do this, be this , learn this, know this etc at this age...and my husband thinks I am obsessed about it....and sometimes thinks am acting old..... :)

shilpa said...

Seriously you are already thinking about school? Weren't you pregnant just the other day? Wow! I remember I had NO exam to get into my KV......

DivSu said...

@Rupa - That fits the description
@Shilpa - Ahh, so you are a KV girl, so is my husband. He is keen on KV but I think since neither of us serves the Govt of India, we have no choice.

About thinking so soon, well, designs of an idle mind I guess :)

But seriously I used to think about it even when I was in school (if I have a daughter, she will also study in Ann's etc) ;)

Re. The school admission thingy.. None of these school principals seem to grasp the effect a rejection has on the child. I find it hard to understand how an educated person who supposedly 'loves children' can think of interviewing them at such a tender age. Its a mess.. The process of school admission interviews seems to be a product of a control freak type of mind.
