OMG!!! I haven't been on to my LJ in such a long long time. My sincerest apologies!!! But its been one hell of a month with submissions on after the other. I've got so much to say, so much to show, but hardly any time. Sucks doesn't it. And the only reason I'm free today is coz I'm supposed to be on bed rest. I've been down with fever and a sore throat, mercifully no runny nose. And I've been able to catch up on days of no sleep. But now I've gotta catch up on a bit of pending work.. yeah, that's the story of my life. But seriously, will try to post some thing today, apart from this. Lots of love to my LJ!!!

And!!!! Its gonna be a year since I started my blog! A one year anniversary!!! Too thrilled for words!! :D

If you could choose one super-power, what would it be and why?

I'd like the power to fly coz travelling three hours everyday in crowded metros to get to college is just too tiresome. I think even better would be the power to teleport to and from wherever I want!!

I'm so glad that LJ has suspended that freaky account whose username randomly turns up at the end of people's posts. Apparently I wasn't the only one with the problem. Kudos to LJ!

 I woke today morning with an aching sweet tooth and decided I wanted to bake. Baking more in the lines of tiramisu. But after a quick google, I ditched that idea. Its somewhat time consuming and the ingredients list wasn't really helping.

Here's what you need for tiramisu:

Decent rum
A pot of coffee
Two 8 oz. tubs of mascarpone cheese
Good chocolate
3 eggs
Heavy cream
Powdered sugar
3 boxes of ladyfingers


For a start, I have no idea what mascarpone cheese is. And I won't lie. I first thought the recipe was talking about the veggy lady's finger. 

But here's what I'm missing out: 



Since the tiramisu didn't work out so, I decided I'd move on to Creme Brulee.

Creme Brulee isn't too diffficult. This is what  you need..

Vanilla
Salt
4 eggs
Heavy cream
Powdered sugar
Custard Cups/Ramekins

Not too bad, I might have had problems with the custard cups, but it couldn't be too tough to work something out. But, then I figured I needed Butane torches for this one. Yeah. Good luck with that.

But here's what I missed out:



My next Bake Crave was Mango Pudding. But apparently you need mangoes for those things. Freaking winter with no mangoes. But here's what I'm missing out. 



By now, I'm really frustrated. So, I ransack mum's kitchen and find a box of Jell-O No Bake Real Cheesecake dessert. The sad thing is you need butter for cheesecake. I know. Who decided to go 'bake' when they don't have butter. But I'm feeling lazy and the dairy is really far and I don't think they're open in the afternoon. 

Here's what I'm missing out on...



But my sweet tooth ache has just gotten worse now. So, I think I'l cook up some custard. The simple easy kind, that doesn't need butane torches. And here's what I'm definitely having! 

Plain Custard ^^

Yes I know. This is totally random.

If you could only listen to one CD for the rest of your life, what would you choose and why?

 I'm on a five day break break starting today thanks to sports fest today. I've pretty much given myself a break today, but I'll have to use these holidays as best as I can. I think I'l finish all the submission work first and I'll look into finishing all my pending submissions. I for one don't plan to be scrapping around in the last minute before the external jury. But knowing me, that's precisely what's going to happen.

But I do have to college to mark my attendance. Wasn't planning to go, but a friend tells me that there are a lot of cute guys around this week. I might actually go.. ^ _~

That's my uncle's name for it. The-Only-Child Syndrome. But I'm not sure if all only children show symptoms. I know very few people who are only children. My mom is an almost only child, her younger brother is thirteen years younger than her. He's twelve years older than me, and he's still a spoiled brat. But back to TOCS.

TOCS Symptom 1: We're closer to our parents. Or our parents are closer to us. I'm not saying that parents of non-only-child families love their children any less, I think there's fewer people in the whole equation to focus your energy on. Parents tend to be more over-protective

TOCS Symptom 2: Tend to be independent for no other reason. We don't have a sibling to count on.

TOCS Symptom 3: We don't being alone much. We've been alone(not no-body-else-on-the-planet alone, just without-siblings alone) all our lives, the lonliness is bearable it is.

TOCS Symptom 4: We tend to keep to ourselves. We do.

TOCS Symptom 5: The non-only-children guys don't always understand us.

TOCS Symptom 6: We don't work in groups so well. We like things to go our way.

That's just a few to sum it up with. Like I said before, I'm not sure if all only children show this. But, many of my friends who are 'only-children (for lack of a better way to put it) tend to be like this.

 I'm feeling bloggo-productive today. Basically, I have a dozen things in my mind that I want to post. I'm not sure if anything is going to come out of it though. I'm not sure where to begin though. We've been roaming Delhi a lot these days, what with all the -rich-in-heritage stuff, its also rich-in-archy stuff too. I've been to Mehrauli, Tughlaqabad and Hauz Khas. I'm starting to wonder if I should create a blog just for Delhi. Not that there aren't enough blogs on Delhi already. Just to satiate my own boredom and some sense of satisfaction. I'm just worried I mightn't be faithful to it. My LJ is the first blog that I've managed to stick by faithfully. My Blogspot is down in the ruins and my Art Journal has barely had any posts to boast of. But I think I'll try. 

And for the record- my internet connection sucks royally. I've been trying to post this post for the sixth time, and the connection has disconnected itself yet again. Yay for me.

 I've looked far and wide. And I'm not satisfied 100 percent, but 87.21 percent is good enough for now. I like the entry width, I'm okay with the font, in love with the colour scheme, not too sure with the header image though. Its beautiful, no doubt. But this is my personal LJ after all. And dancing doesn't really describe me. I'm usually awkward and uncomfortable. But graphically, its really beautiful. So, I guess I'll stick with this for now.

And besides, I could always change the header image.

And before I forget. Credits to this beautiful layout- scholarslayouts,I've also given credits on my profile page.[Unknown LJ tag]
