A Guide to Being Normal

Did you hear the answers to the Rorschach inkblot test have been leaked on wikipedia. Psychologists world over are deeply unhappy and I am so very amused. They might try to remove it, therefore I am going to post it here. Go visit:

I do this because I have a rather strong distaste for psychology/psychiatry and also because I am genuinely concerned for all of you dearies. I am sure that all of you are great examples of fine citizenry, but there might be a time when some hack doctor takes it upon himself to declare you psychotic –in which case this will be rather useful.

120px-Rorschach_blot_03 two humans. I see two women

120px-Rorschach_blot_04 No, this is not a dead person…but is an animal skin or an extremely large animal

120px-Rorschach_blot_08 ooOo, pretty…the pink part is an animal. I for one don’t see an animal, I see a spinal cord, liver type stuff, etc.

120px-Rorschach_blot_09 orange part=humans….I see sea-horses and more body parts.

120px-Rorschach_blot_10 blue= crab/lobster/spider

Hurrah!! That is all you need to know. If in some case they change this, make sure you use limited imagination and for gods sake..don’t say vagina.

I’m going to take a nap and you stay out of the loony bin.

Followers, followers...where art thou?

You have gone missing from my page and have been missing since yesterday. I asked a question about this on the 'Something's Broken' section but haven't gotten an answer. Apparently several of you are experiencing this problem. It would be pretty snazzy of you if you can help me with this.

Yesterday, I was craving for pizza...yummy cheesy pizza. But today, I weighed myself and I am 5lbs lighter and this has put me in a dilemma. I still want the pizza, but now I am just too proud of myself to eat it....hmph. Let me go figure out the pros and cons of eating pizza whilst some of you think of a way to fix this followers not showing up thing.

Mr.Darcy is NOT a Vampire

I might be over-reacting a tad, but I think these modern authors are taking too many artistic liberties with my favorite Austen novel. I can understand people making modern versions of ‘Pride and Prejudice’ as great stories will always be emulated, but turning this classic into something so preposterous is wrong.

If the urge to write about vampires, zombies and sea monkeys is really so strong, these authors should write original stories. Look at Stephanie Meyer –she did all right. Twilight is like the only vampire book I have ever read and Edward Cullen was great and sort-of original. These books are never any good, that stupid zombies book wasn’t even funny.

Okay then, I should proceed to a Veronica Mars marathon.

Shawshank Puppy

Puppies Behind Bars Inmates Sign Up to Train Service Dogs and Get a Little Something in Return Gloria Gilbert Stoga beacon new york jail prison inmates Radhika Chalisani / Redux

I found the coolest article today and I thought I must really share it. Its about this organization called ‘Puppies Behind Bars’ which was founded in 1997 by New Yorker, Gloria Stoga.

These dogs are trained by prison inmates and stay 20 months in the cell with their handlers. It was founded to train dogs to help the disabled, but these days they are even trained to be bomb-sniffers and help Iraq/Afghanistan war veterans. This kind of training usually costs $25,000 per dog.

This is such an amazingly ingenious program, you can’t help but admire it.

Best Romantic Couples of All Time

Hmm…I am feeling all warm and fuzzy and must seize this moment to write in a very cheesy entry.

1. Elizabeth Bennett and William Darcy

This tops the list ofcourse. No discussion necessary.

2. Catherine and Heathcliff

They are one couple who deserved a happy ending and never got it. Emily Bronte’s ‘Wuthering Heights’ is written in a very well..insipid manner, but her characters make up for it. Heathcliff takes your breath away. They would have topped my list if they had had a happy ending.

3.Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler 0_22_022207_clark_gable

Theres a reason why these two have appeared in every “best” list there is and I don’t think they are ever going to be dethroned. In fact, I think I am going to watch ‘Gone with the Wind’ again..

4. Francisco/Rearden/John Galt and Dagny Taggart

yep, all three of them..there’s really no way to chose because they are all perfect. I think Ayn Rand is the only author who makes loving three different guys so, erm, natural. Dagny chooses Galt in the end, but Francisco and Rearden are too good to be forgotten.

5. Rick Blaine and Ilsa Lund

Have I mentioned how much I love Humphrey Bogart? I think in all his movies he was a lot like who he was in real life. He is sarcastic, witty and unrepentant and still manages to be adorable. ‘Casablanca’ was one of the most beautiful movies ever made.

6. Eliza Doolitle and Henry Higgins

‘My Fair Lady’ is one of the funniest, cutest movies I have ever seen. Audrey Hepburn was hilarious, you have to watch it if you haven’t already.

7. Who ever these two are


I don’t know who they are, I don’t know their story but I feel their story must have been epic. What a great photograph, 1945 V-J Day –they might not be alive but it would be great if someone could track them down.

8. Noah Calhoun and Allie Hamilton

from the ‘Notebook’. I don’t know how Nicholas Sparks writes these amazing stories time after time. But they are all great.

9. Ross and Rachelrossandrachel

Rachel: How do you expect me to grow, if you wont let me blow.
Ross: You, you know I...I don't have a...have a problem with that.

hahahaha, they had no right to cancel that show!

10. Giselle and Robert Philip

from ‘Enchanted’, that was such a surprising fun movie, I thought I was going to get bored, but it made me laugh so very hard.


Tell me if I missed some (unless they are that infamous twilight couple).

Man arrested for "breaking and entering" own house

A few days back I posted a story about a "whites only pool", but this story is even more baffling...Henry Louis Gates, an African-American man who is a Yale graduate, a PBS documentarian and one of time magazines "25 most influential americans" was arrested.
Can you guess what he was arrested for? Breaking and entering -only it was his own home.

Now there are two sides to every story and the cops have their own version of it, but I am not buying it...they said that Gates was being hysterical and calling the cops racist. He was probably just pissed that he was being arrested for "breaking into" his own home and rightly so. Stories like these anger me, and I do not understand why this happens today. With Barack Obama as president, you kinda assume that people dont carry that small minded mentality anymore.

This story is so unexpected, can you imagine someone being arrested for something like this? A 58 year old man and a Harvard professor no less.


Hugh Dancy, omigod...i am posting this so everybody else can bask in his good lookingness.

and theres more...<3<3

Glowing Clouds

They look absolutely serene and beautiful and have been seen in Omaha, Paris and Seattle. Problem is they belong in the polars and the NASA brain-boxes are sort of freaked out. Whats causing this? You guessed it! Global Warming. Its nice how everything can be blamed on mankind, even glowing clouds.
Thanks Al, thanks a bunch.

A Whites Only Pool in Philadelphia?!

I was really shocked when I heard about this. Sign the petition if you haven't already, someone needs to remind them its 2009!!

Dear friends,
Two weeks ago outside Philadelphia, sixty-five children from a summer camp tried to go swimming at a club their camp had a contract to use. Evidently, the club didn't know the kids were largely Black.
When the campers entered the pool, White parents took their kids out of the water, and the swimming club's staff asked the campers to leave. The next day, the club told the summer camp that their membership would be canceled and that they would refund their money. When asked why, the club's leader said the "kids would change the complexion ... and the atmosphere of the club."
A "Whites only" pool in 2009 should not be tolerated. The club's actions appear to be a violation of section 1981 of the Civil Rights Act. Whether or not any laws were violated, a "Whites only" pool should be something every American condemns.
I've just joined in doing exactly that -- will you join me, and email your friends and family asking them to do the same? We're also calling on the Department of Justice to evaluate suing the facility under federal law. It takes just a moment to do both, here:
Obama is President but that doesn't mean that suddenly all is fine when it comes to race in America. This is a vivid reminder of what we know still lies beneath the surface.
We all know stories like this one -- similar incidents play out quietly every day in different communities across the country. The difference in this case is that folks got caught and there was a contract in place that makes for a potentially illegal act.
Standing up now isn't just about making things right for these kids in Philadelphia or bringing consequences to this swim club (called the Valley Swim Club). It's about creating a climate of accountability everywhere. If we can publicly shame the Valley Swim Club and hold them accountable for this incident, it will make others think twice before engaging in this kind of discrimination.
Please join me in condemning the Valley Swim Club's blatant discrimination and calling on the Justice Department to investigate whether they violated civil rights laws. And please ask your friends and family to do the same.

Life as I want it

Quote du Jour: "Its kind of fun to do the impossible"

-Walt Disney

The staying awake at night to plot my life cycle is still going strong, so I thought I should make a list whilst I am all wide-eyed. I like lists, they make life simpler :

The Two Year Plan:-

1. Get through this last year of college. and then actually do well this time. Have to say this isn't going quite so well as college has already begun and I have no plans to return until August the tenth.

2. Get back from college, work and then take a month off and go to Rome/Turkey/London

3. Write a book

4. Get my MBA from Wharton. Goodness me, Wharton is only like the best business school in the world! hff..

5. Excavate a royal mummy in Egypt. Yep, pretty specific, but I always always loved archaeology.

6. Learn martial arts. Inspired by the likes of Trinity and Kung fu panda, I want to learn ju-jitsu. I don't know, I might be a bit of a chicken though.

Hmm, yeah, that pretty much covers it.

crocs, bucks and then some

"Veronica, I think when you get out in the world a little more, you'll discover that not all well-dressed, articulate, detail-oriented men are gay. Many of them are just...Asian."
-Veronica Mars

Muahaha! finally! turns out that crocs are experiencing some recessionarry symptoms. Yes crocs, those ugly shoes which people actually bought. ugh, i hated them, they looked more ridiculous than those silly moon boots/uggs. ick. well i am glad something good came from this economic strife.
For any 'Veronica Mars' fans a wb movies is in the talks and hopefully it comes out. That show was one of the smartest shows on tv. sad that many people did not watch it...they were too busy watching boring shows like 'One tree hill'.
One thing I am failing to understand is how Starbucks is going through so much trouble. Granted, they served lousy coffee filled with ice chips, but it was hugely popular. Things are so bad that its actually competing with McDonalds coffee! And they are going undercover...oh yes, they have changed their name to "15th Avenue Coffee and Tea". This is supposedly going to help them, but I think the trouble with starbucks is its eww tasting coffee not its name.

This video is too funny/even more creepy....must watch:

These Sotomayor articles are hurting my brain, she is so obviously unqualified, I don't know why they waste their time discussing. Besides the fact that she has no opinions, she is so creepy with her squinty eyes and hot pink jacket.
In more entertaining news California tax officials have said that legalizing pot would generate $1.4 billion in revenue just in California! They only need about 443,000 signatures by 2010 to legalize marijuana. This is a better kind of stimulus package.
Serena Williams was beaten by a 14 year old in a tennis match and 30 Rock was nominated for the Emmy's again. I don't think I have laughed at any show since Friends and now I watch Friends reruns. You know what else was funny? Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Saved by the Bell. 30 Rock isn't funny.

I am addicted to blogger

and the internet. Have you ever heard of craigslist? I only heard about it this has everything, personals, people selling stuff, people giving jobs, people looking for people.

So, these are the best of craigslist and I selected the best of the best:

Daughter getting morning after pill at RiteAid - m4w
Looking for the daughter half that was in Rite Aid with her mother (I assume) getting the morning after pill today in Finksburg. You had an amazing body and I would love to be the next reason you have to get another dose of said pill! Hit me up if you're looking for another go round.

I took your purse and felt a connection - m4w
Tuesday night around 11:30. On 53rd btw 1st and 2nd. You came out of the subway and I followed you. You looked over your shoulder, saw me and started walking faster. I ran up, grabbed your arm, took your purse and ran away. I heard you yelling for help but let's be honest, this is New York. The only way people would come running is if you yelled "Free Weed!" I've done many a snatch-and-grab but no one has ever stuck in my mind like you. There was a quick moment when our eyes met that I felt something strong. I think you felt it too. If I wasn't so shy (or so committing a crime) I would have asked your name. I, of course, later got your name from your drivers license. So Jennifer if you'd like to get together for a drink sometime get back to me. Oh, and I can give you back your purse. Your credit cards are still there but I spent the cash (sorry). And my room mate took your tampons. I don't know what he does with them but he always takes the tampons. If it works out between us I'll totally buy you some new ones ;-)

ok. so i don't know really how to go about this. basically, i was your one night stand last night and need my most important idem of clothing back--> my bra. so yes, i was totally fine with the fact that when i left this morning we didn't exchange phone numbers (or names...); no big deal. but once i got home and sobered up, i realized, that we maybe should have because i left my bra at your house. first off, i want to get something clear. this is no victoria secret-esq type bra. this is an imported good were talking about. princess tam tam-french lingerie. ok. specifics about you. (what i remember.) they are not going to be too specific because my friends are on this all the time and think i took a cab home last night.
you are: 1) outrageously tall and good looking.
2) a commercial real estate broker in the downtown area, but lives in coronado with an asian friend whom i believe, was celebrating his birthday.
3) going to gaslamp saturday night.
4) really into golf, in fact went friday.
5) a fan of red gummy bears.
i am:
1) someone who obviously loves her underwear.
2) obsessed with french everything.
3) not really into children. something we have in common.
4) occasionally from time to time caught wearing my clothes inside out.
5) "anna"- (my name.)
so, where to go from here. basically, i'm willing to do whatever it takes. i can come pick it up, you can mail it to me, i can just have you leave it outside your building at a certain agreed upon time. what ever. i hope to god you don't feel weird about this, because i don't. i obviously didn't leave it there on purpose. like i said, i'm not looking for you to take me out or call me. for god's sake, i'm resorting to craigslist for a grey bra. it's just a super cute one and i want it back. plus, it doesn't seem like you'll use it. you just didn't come off as that type.

I loved these, lmao. infact, craigslist is completely useless and is like myspace for criminals so the most you should do is check the 'best of..'
k then,

The new all encompassing list of things I want

I love that we live in a time where there are so many inventions that are going to emerge, its like witnessing the next industrial revolution, check out this list..

1. The Invisibility Cloak
No, not Harry Potters, the brain boxes at UC Berkley have actually made it! It works by using a material that neither absorbs nor reflect lights (think Invisible Woman, Fantastic 4). Where they found this material, I have no idea.

2.Einstein's fridge
Seriously, that guy did everything. Apparently he made a refrigerator that uses ammonia, butane and water instead of freon (which is what yours uses). This uses way less energy and was enhanced by the peeps in Oxford.

3. The charge your phone by walking..thing
This is a device that harnesses the energy of walking. It ties around your knee and has enough energy to charge your cellphones, blackberries, iphones. woo.

4.The Peraves Mono Tracer
Its a motorcycle..but its covered. Its safe and its fast.

5. The Aptera Electric Car

Swiss made, super strong, super fast. This thing is cooler than the bat-mobile...actually it looks like one of those jetsons cars. The only thing this car can't do is fly.,28757,1852747,00.html.html check out this link to see more. I think our sci-fi writers should start thinking more radical, because technology is catching on fast.

Mad Scientist Day

Happy birthday Nikola Tesla! Tesla was one of the most impressive inventors of all time. He invented the radio, wireless lightbulb and the AC generator. He was pretty, actually he was a complete loon. But a genius, nevertheless.

Heres a vid from one of my favorite bands ever, Keane --'On a day like today':

Some serious thinking

"Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values."

-Ayn Rand

Its really hard to dislike Obama even if his economic policies make zero sense. I hope he gets some sense though, because I want him to succeed, even if he is a Democrat...

In other news, Massachusetts is going to sue the US government due to their stand on gay marriage --and I hope MA wins this one.

Some news of another senator having a mistress. I really wonder why the press pay so much attention to these kind of stories and why the rest of the world cares.

Night Owl

I don't know why I picked the middle of the night to ponder on the greater meanings of life. Thinking about what exactly I am doing with myself, my life and all that regular schmazzle. So, I couldn't sleep and basically played with my cat for half an hour. My cat (lilo) was more than happy to have a companion to accompany him in his nightly prowls.
Then I spent the rest of the time reading Atlas Shrugged at like 1am. Ahh, those of you who are in highschool/college and are broke like me, the ayn rand foundation has a $10,000 essay contest.
The weather is highly unpredictable, dont go out when its storming and raining...I know its fun, but you will get struck by lightning. I did and its the kind of thing one must totally avoid.

see ya then,

My top 5--things I want.

I think its imperative that I get a job :(

What would Jane do?

Quote du jour: "Good-humoured, unaffected girls, will not do for a man who has been used to sensible women. They are two distinct orders of being."
-Jane Austen
I love how Jane Austen makes life so simple and beautiful. A perfect day is snuggling in bed with hot cocoa and an Austen novel. I have read Pride and Prejudice, Emma and Sense and Sensibility.
For now, I must head on and do some serious research.
Thats it for today,

Audrey always gets me fashiony

Quote du jour:-
"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."
-Audrey Hepburn

So, I watched Sabrina today for the first time and like all her movies this ones a true classic, its a must watch. Its a wonder after so many years that she still remains that one beautiful woman, whose style one could only hope to emulate. I really wish that some of our modern fashion icons could learn from her..aka, Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox. Get some class!

Anyway, after every Hepburn movie, I realize my closet is empty and I go crazy clothes hunting and ta da! I have found the best online(or otherwise) store for accessories...its
Absolutely check it out!! It has the best and wonderfully priced accessories. The clothes are just as good, but are a little too pricy for me. I am afterall jobless.

Blockbuster..why oh why can you not give me a job? Am I really ill qualified to swipe cards and watch your store? Which is basically always empty, because your prices are shitty. Ah, thats another story. But it annoys me...why put a 'Now Hiring' sign when you are in fact NoT. Corporate America you are a bunch of stupids! I can only advice that you wait for me to get my MBA.

I really do hope, some people other than me actually read this...

See ya tomorrow!

Aaah, the wonderful world of blogging....actually, I don't know very much about it. This summer is a summer wasting. Nobody is employing me and I have moved to this strange land called New Jersey and I do not know very many people. I really do doubt that I am going to get many views on this page and I will basically be blogging to myself.
In case accidentally you have swerved upon this page, I really mean to keep it updated and all. I can ramble on for ours and I have varied interests. So on this blog you can expect to read about...politics, gossips, celebrities, inventors, dictators, cars, good literature, tawdry literature, food, animals with subtle mentions of vegetarianism, personalities and most importantly meself!
ok, then, here's hoping this blog idea of mine actually takes off!
Till then,
