Celebs Gone Wild; 2005's Weirdest Moments...

To think we thought Brad and Jen were the ideal couple! That Tom Cruise was normal! That Nick and Jessica and were in it for love — not publicity! And that Michael Jackson might have been guilty!

This year opened our eyes all right — although we probably wished we had kept them shut.

Check out some of them:

Jingle All the Way; Merry Christmas!

Believe it or not Jingle Bells, one of the most famous American Christmas songs, was originally written for Thanksgiving! The author and composer of Jingle Bells was a minister called James Pierpoint who composed the song in 1857 for children celebrating his Boston Sunday School Thanksgiving. The song was so popular that it was repeated at Christmas, and indeed Jingle Bells has been reprised ever since.

The essence of a traditional Christmas is captured in the lyrics of Jingle Bells and the sound effects using the bells have become synonymous with the arrival of Father Christmas or Santa Claus to the delight of children of all ages!


Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob tails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
We got into a drifted bank
And then we got upsot

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh yeah

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

Life, as if grounded

This week's beginning has marked my worst illness in months.

I'm feeling totally blowed out with a 102 F temperature and a severe flu & throat infection. Headache, body pain, shivering & nose + eye-water flows have been the natural followers. Miserable it is already if I donot recover soon, it'll be adding more trouble in form of University absentees.

Although, there doesn't seem to be any eatable thing, that I have ever showed dislike for, however, this time I don't feel like having anything at all. I hope it's normal in case of such an illness.

Winter has been rough and dry this time around resulting in widespread coughs and running noses. We hope to get the first rain of the season, soon, that will help reducing misery of the poor beings...

For me, until I recover from this fever added infection, life's as if grounded...

The Hectic Times!

This previous week has been quite a hectic one, making me unable to come online or writing anything.

We are having our home renovated with additional wood-work, texture paints and carpet-makeovers. It's been nearly three months since we started this. As for those living in my country, there's no disagreement about labor giving a tough time to the renovater. It's really a damn hectic job to get things done here.

The Kill Game...

Killing your own citizens by assuming them as terrorists, attacking sovereignity of other nations with wrong intelligence on WMDs, under the cover of dealing with terrorism; It's getting uglier for the people ruling this country...

"Rigoberto Alpizar, a 44-year-old US citizen, was killed in the air bridge after running out of the plane pursued by marshals who had broken their cover.

No bomb was found on Mr Alpizar whose wife had tried to explain he had a mental illness, one witness said.

Mary Gardner, a fellow passenger, told local television that the man had run frantically down the aisle of the Boeing 757 screaming while his wife tried to explain he was ill.

"I did hear the lady say her husband was bi-polar and had not had his medication," she said. "I saw the woman... she was hysterical."

Mr Alpizar had arrived in Miami, Florida, from Ecuador and was boarding a flight to Orlando at about 1410 local time (1910 GMT).

Local police and federal officers are investigating the incident, but officials say so far there is no hint of any links to terrorism. However, as a precaution, federal air marshals were deployed in airports across the country.

Television images showed police and emergency response officers surrounding the plane after the incident."

Possible, positive effect of a tragedy

It's nice to hear about the two arch-rivals coordinating with each other in this moment of sheer destruction.

Pakistan and India have set up 5 crossing points for exchange of relief supplies on the LOC (Line of Control) in disputed territory of Kashmir. Plans are to open these points also for the citizens of both Azad and Occupied Kashmir to help reunite families in distress.

This may be the first of steps to improve relations with each other and to resolve all of mutual conflicts including Kashmir.

October 8, surely will be remembered as the darkest day in Pakistan's history, however, if in its wake we are able to resolve this 58 year-old dispute with India, it would become a blessing in disguise...

In memory of my toothbrush, OB...

Dear OB,

I hope this letter finds you in the best of hygiene. I am doing fine but things aren't the same without you.

It came to me as a shock, when I was unable to find you in my brush-cup in the toilet that unfateful day. Your mysterious disappearance made me feel so sad that I still haven't been able to go for a replacement. Tears fill my eyes, and I cannot resist the pain whenever one of my finger touches the aching tooth during early morning finger-pasting of my teeth.

Although the toothache is to be blamed for the suffering, however, your absence surely is a substantial enhancer.

Immediately after the discovery of your disappearance, I had informed the concerned authorities. Investigations are going on with all those who use or even have entered my bathroom mistakenly.

I still remember the day I nick-named you my dear OB. Oh, and the way you always showed your likeness for the nick by giving me a sparkle on your Oral-B logo, using the bulb-light, has made me cry a many times.

O! OB, your services to the hygiene of my teeth have been immense and they, surely, cannot be forgotten by me so easily.

I know, what you are trying to say; that the life must go on. And it should better be, but let me tell you one thing, that no other toothbrush can take your place as my dear OB. I'm always going to miss you just like my very first teeth that I lost to the Tooth fairy in my childhood.

May God keep you shinning and transparent as ever.
