"Hey, TGND, what's with the new 'do?"
I wait and watch while DBB gives the team a pep talk, and then they
get down to some brainstorming. It's all quiet and routine, and then
suddenly, the peace is shattered by a loud series of cracks. Bomb attack?
Hardly. While DBB was giving directions, our crackpot hero managed to
get a marker cap stuck inside a rotating fan, and the thing was being
tossed about by those metal blades with ear-shattering results.
"Okay, guys, I can take a hint. Now submit your work and get lost…and
by the way, your bills aren't ready yet, so you don't get paid till
Naturally, this last announcement is followed by groans of disappointment. Not everyone's going home empty-handed, though. The twins and TGND were spotted standing in a corner making a secret transaction.So will DBB's secret pep-talk work? What was the shady deal that TGND and her 'bhabis' have struck? Are Mood Dude's negative vibes really out of control? Find out next week…
It's Not Your Problem Anymore
fell in love with a girl a few months ago. She is very beautiful and
she has a tremendous personality. I really love her. She is in class
8 and I am in class 9. It seems to me that she is also polite. I am
dazzled by her. The problem is that I don't know whether she likes me
or not. I did not express my feelings for her because I did not want
to lose her forever. She does not stare at me that often though I think
she knows that I do. I'm not sure though. I absolutely love her. And
I know this is no silly crush that is going to wear off. I may be in
class 9 but I think I'm prepared for a relationship like this and it
seems to me that she is too. I am not really sure what to do. I cannot
just go and tell her that because I think would create a conflict and
I could lose her for good. Please help me, Riyana! Good day and sweet
you are so sure about yourself and the girl, would my advice really
count? It wouldn't. But I would still suggest that you not jump to conclusions
and take a step at a time and be friends. You are too young. But hey!
This is my advice, my only advice. The decision is yours.
believe in soul mates and that the 'right' person is out there for me.
And I am constantly on the search for him. Every new person I meet...I
think could be a potential possibility. The problem is that I already
have a BF. He's very good and caring and I like being around and with
him. But I know that he's not the one for me. I do 'love' him though.
But there is just something missing in our relationship. Maybe it's
the fact that I think he isn't on the same 'understanding level' as
me. It makes me feel frustrated and want to get rid of him at times.
Then again, I do like him and he'll be so heart broken if I tell him
this. I know you'll tell me I'm too young (18) to be looking for the
right person. I know that too. But it constantly disturbs me...what
should I do?
not a question of finding the right guy that should worry. You should
be worried about your current boyfriend. Your treating him like insurance
and that's bad. I would suggest you re-evaluate your relationship with
him and then think about right and wrong.
sorry I can't give you a personal reply. It's not allowed. But I will
tell you what to do. The problem has to be reported, both to the parents
and the appropriate authorities and action must be taken. Counselling
should also be given a chance. It's the best medication now.
Mail your problems to email@example.com and we'll try our best to solve them. Due to limited space, I'm afraid we're only able to print one problem at a time. Please have patience and give us ample time to reply and print your problem.
Geneva Camp fried food stalls Let's face it; man cannot live by bread
alone. It's too healthful. So man needs all kinds of fried foods to
clog the arteries and die an untimely death. It helps to make way for
"chaap" houses are perfect for such gatherings because you
cannot just eat food with a single mindedness like that of a truck driver
running down pedestrians. You have to look left and right and spit out
the inedible pieces. You also have to voice your comments on everything
from nuclear disarmament to Chanda Rani's dance on ATN.
adda with food is the best of all addas. In medieval ages the right
of passage was earned by jousting, dragon slaying and shooting apples
off people's heads with an arrow. Eating fired 'chaap' (a.k.a. meat)
is a similar trick for boys of this generation. If your stomach survives
you become a man. Of course, then you die of ulcers and cholesterol.
topics include boasting of cast iron stomachs that can withstand everything.
Then there is the boasting of each individual knowing of the best place
in town for a particular dish. Turns out everyone knows a different
adda is mainly about appreciating food. Wash your meat down with a bowl
of chicken. It's literally a legendary dish mainly because thee is only
a hint of chicken in it. Probably the chicken stepped into the bowl
for a few seconds.
with all the oil coursing fluidly down your arteries you get up and
wipe your hands. It's another legendary innovation. You use newspapers
and magazine ages. Carry along a copy of Rising Stars. It has very good
water retention capabilities. I know because I just cleaned up spilled
