Super Sized....

Its America. Its land of the super-sized. On Sunday Kallu, Priya and myself headed down to Annapolis (Maryland) for an off-beat film festival. There was not much to say about the festival, but there was a lot to say about this regular sized coke float which Priya ordered at a restaurant near Annapolis waterfront. Lots to say.... and lots to eat!

Yes, we are still trying to figure out what the hell were they thinking.

LOL. Tera size dekha, isliye restaurant-waale ne itna bada sa coke float diya. Tujhe dekh kar socha hoga, "Koi gal nahi. Yeh banda zaroor khatam kar sakta hai. Waise bhi khaate-peete khandan ka lagta hai..It wont make much of a difference if he puts on a few more pounds..Doesnt look like hes doing much to shed them anyway!!!"

apoo: i pity you man... you had to go to a film festival to get something like this? we get it here at happy, albeit its flavoured with termites and bugs and all sorts of anthropods... but still its closer to our place...

medha: i am sure if u were a gujju, this : Tera size dekha, isliye restaurant-waale ne itna bada sa coke float diya line makes perfect sense... kyoun... socho socho... hint: think abt gujju pronunciation of coke :P

@ Apoo: Guess size does matter in the US of A!

Medha: I am on the same page as Iyer. When I first read the comment, kinda skimmed thru it and I saw "Tera size dekha..." and"restaurant waala" "itna bada" and "coke" and I was like, whats this girl talking about??? The I read it slowly again. LOLZ!
Ok, on a serious note, I promise I didnt have more than 2 regular spoonfuls from that. Also, it is strictly prohibited to talk about my growing waistline. Its a contract you sign in your mind before you read my blog. So watch it!!! I will sue you!!!

Iyer: I am travelling places in the quest to find an international brother of Happy. Still havent found one.

Couchie: Trust me, it does ;)

Smithy: I could have so expected that comment from you. See... see... I know you so well!

Blogger iyer education said...

apoo: stop finding something you will never find... there's no place like happy anywhere in the world... and why does your "coke" needs a float, doesnt it know to swim... thats what reading medha's comment made me think for the second time... "tera size dekha aur coke float diya"

medha: i have only two words for you... HAPPY REALISATION :p

November 16, 2005 10:50 PM

Iyer... ask Medha. She said it.
And I shall find happiness somewhere else in this world.... I shall!

im sorry medha but i didnt (COULDNT) read what u wrote in english-hindi...my hindi sucks as it is..reading it in english requires twice the effort..but whatever it was, i'm sure it dissed apoo good ;) WELL DONE!!

HAHA. Its ok Mahi. And well done with the 'IDIOT!MONEKY' thing. haha!

Mahi: And you call yourself an Indian citizen. BAH! Learn Hindi! U people from Wadala!!

Medha: Now what did I do???

I used to love this chocolate called M&M. Unfortunately now M&M reminds me of Medha&Mahi. I am haunted by the M&M ghosts.

Suddenly I thank God for the following:
- I am not in Singapore
- M&M are not in USA
- I dont have sisters like M&M

"U people from Wadala" JUST CRACKED ME UP!!!


Abey oye, you will get me into trouble...for making me burst out laughing in the office! Idiot! :p

But it was a real good one! LOL.

Okay, let me get done with laughing first..and then i will get back to Apoo-bashing! lol.

Medha: Read above.

KJ: I repeat. It was not my coke float. I was not responsible for finishing it.

Lord: Come along. They have all sortsa chocolate ice-creams here. The best I have had till now was one called "Death By Chocolate". Was truly worth dying for.
And hot men exist. Here is a link to one such hot mans blog

oh you people from ANDHERI! or bandra or wherever the hell it is you come from :@
*bangs the table*

apee u do realise that if you EVER come to singapore, there are gonna be two girls who'll make your life miserable
*sweet smile*

November 17, 2005 8:12 PM  
Blogger APOO said...

Mahi dear... before you say anything about Andheri, remember half the population who comments on my blog lives in Andheri. :)

And well.... Andheri is cool!!! Unlike Wadala, which sounds like a Gujju sweet... or boiling potatoes!

And do you realize that this moment I might very well be in Singapore... u wud never know :P

November 17, 2005 8:24 PM  
Blogger Medha.. said...

Umm Mahi, Andheri is cool and Bandra ROCKS!

But i'm still on your side when it comes to dissing Apoo. Promise! Or making his life miserable for that matter.

Oh puhleeez Apoo, you cant be in Singapore. You just cant. Mahi, did you feel any tremors?? Or did the recent news feature any mild earthquakes in sg?? No rite? I know thats whats gonna happen once Apoo lands in Sg. *courtesy of his growing waistline and the countless coke floats he has had, but denies having them* :p

November 17, 2005 9:54 PM  
Blogger APOO said...

So Medha, if I am in Singapore and there is no earthquake, can we conclude the waistline has reduced?

November 17, 2005 11:55 PM

ooo brr andherians ooo scary
watcha gonna do huh take me to shoppers stop and leave me there to punish me?
andheri sucks
and of course wadala would sound like boiled potatoes to u..URE MARATHI.

Since your friend didn't want a coke 'byte', and asked for a coke 'float'...Well...she asked for it. :-) Imagine what she would have got, had she asked for a 'double'.

November 18, 2005 1:07 AM  
Blogger Bird said...

Keep the Harbour Line (Wadala etc.)& Andheri out of this.

Anyways whats the connection of boiled potatoes,wadala & marathi?

November 18, 2005 1:09 AM  
Blogger Medha.. said...

You know Mahi, Wadala does sound a lil like 'batata'..lol.. But dint get the connection between boiled potatoes and being a maharashtrian. :S

And take you to shoppers stop for punishment?!?! You sure that would be A PUNISHMENT?? I dont think so yaar..

November 18, 2005 1:21 AM  
Blogger APOO said...

Mahi, when u have no clue of whats going on (historically or geographically), just give up!

Brad: A double would lead to overloading ;)

Bird, you dont travel the harbour line anymore. But I am glad to see you still stand by it, defend it.

And yes, Mahi, please explain the connection.

Medha: I think Mahi was trying to trick me into taking her shopping!

November 18, 2005 1:42 AM  
Blogger Medha.. said...

Sigh! Now i really wanna shop there. Oh have u been to that club there...Club nine or Club seven?? Right above shoppers stop?

Gosh i miss bombay now!!! I LOVE AAMCHI MUMBAI!!

November 18, 2005 1:52 AM  
Blogger APOO said...

Medha. I live behind Shoppers Stop. Common wall. If you have ever been there around Holi season and got hit by balloons as you got out of the exit.... blame Moi (and Bird, and Abbs, and Pals, and Bakshi.....)
Bird might deny it, but he is lying

November 18, 2005 1:56 AM  
Blogger APOO said...

And the club above Shoppers Stop is called "T-Top"

Thats where all the action happens.

November 18, 2005 1:57 AM  
Blogger Medha.. said...

Oh...then its not the one im talking about. Then i guess its in some other mall, but in Andheri. If i'm not wrong, its called Club Seven. Or was it Club nine? Aaaaah, cant remember. The only thing i remember that the NDTV guys were, and they filmed my cousins and me while we were drinking n dancing. Geez, khandan ka naam mitti mein mila diya humne!

Damn now i miss Holi! iiisshhh! :(

Medha: FYI, "T-Top" is the lingo used in my apartment complex for "Terrace top". thats where we all guys (called Nanguys) sit and have tullee sessions. Its been rebranded as Club T-Top. You were right about LCub 7 and 9 on Shoppers (only at Bandra). I was just trying to confuse you :P

Paro: T-Top rocks! Dont goto seven!

Medha: The restaurant you are talking about is Bageecha..... ok, i am trying to confuse u again!

Kay: I think you have come up with a brilliant idea.... I love hats. They cover my bald spot! Wanna try to sell the concept?

LOAT: Death by Chocolate is a flavour here, made by Friendlies or someone I think... not sure if its the same one in B'lore.

apoo: now your knowledge about clubs is outdated... please clear the cache and refresh :P... and keep your area and boundaries close to wadala...

medha: you are right... sheesha it is... it is this sort of new restaurant above shoppers stop bandra :)

ps:i am one lucky guy... the word verification here reads PEETUN... broken into PEE (that is drink in hindi) and TUN (that is sloshed drunk in slang)... today is my good day :P
