Unmagic.

It feels like magic when I blow out a candle flame
and I smile a little smile when I see pictures of carousels
and I get nostalgic for something undefined when it’s cloudy, windy and about to rain
and violins pull my strings, bringing tears and shivers
and a lot of the times I speak without thinking, at least not too much
and when the cracks on my skin catch the light, it makes me think of when I’ll be old, older
and I like and, it’s a good conjunction

I feel like being a little silly right now
and I’ll laugh at myself when I say sunshine and potatoes
that was an inside joke between Jasmine and me
I’m wondering right now if ‘me’ should go before ‘Jasmine’
or if there’s supposed to be an ‘I’ instead
I don’t feel like looking it up right now, but I think I wrote it correctly
so I think I’ll just leave it
sometimes I just like to ramble
and hope someone gets the point
and sometimes they do
and sometimes so do I

Oh how I love thee, Pizza!

Few days ago I decided to make pizza at an instance. It was lunch time and thanks to my friend google, I found a pizza dough recipe that didn’t require a day for the pizza dough to rise! Let me cut the story short, the pizza turned out amazing and I took pictures of the process with our new Canon EOS Rebel T2i EOS 550D. We mainly bought the camera to take pictures for our fashion blog but how can you resist taking food pictures…

On our way to famousland

We recently did an interview. It was with a Filmistan, a.k.a Bollywood, celebrity! We’re still psyched about it!

How did two nobodies in Silicon Valley with no connection to Filmistan score an interview with a celebrity? We got it using our once-sworn enemy: Facebook. We thought we’d never be found on these social networking sites, what was the point?

After a lot of convincing by our friends, we submitted to the times and finally joined. Now, we can’t get away from it. We’ve made our presence felt on one of the biggest social networking sites of today. Facebook is the perfect way to spend an entire day trying to add famous people on your friends list!

So far it has proved to be a good tool and as we mentioned above, it got us our first celebrity interview for our other blog, which is strictly about Hindi movies. OH did we not let our shishiyas know about our other blog…we’re sorry, here’s the link.

The future

We’re done with our bachelor’s degree! We can’t believe this, it started to seem like it would never happen, but here we are…done!! WE ARE DONE!

Of course, that satisfaction of finishing didn’t really last long, as it’s hard to ignore the elephant in the room…the future. Hopefully, it’s what we want it to be…all we can do is…do everything in our power to get what we want!

One day this conversation might be based on real facts

Jasmine: Tujhe shahrukh ka invite nahin mila…holi ke liye? (Did you get Shah Rukh’s Holi invitation?)
Sona: Mila tha, but itni busy thi…amrita ki aur ayesha ki shaadi ki preprations karni thi naa ( I did get it, but because I was so busy for Amrita and Ayesha’s marriage preprations, I didn’t have time)
Sona: Mere bina kaisey hota (How would anything happen without me)
Jasmine: Haan woh toh hai (Yeah that’s true)
Jasmine: It’s been a busy first week of march
Sona: Yeah that’s true
Jasmine: Too many parties…and god how did they not take any pictures of us
Sona: Photographers don’t like us because remember when we bashed them for invading our privacy
Sona: We’re communication majors we understand their job, but they crossed the limit
Jasmine: Haan woh toh hai…par (Yeah that’s true…but) I miss seeing our pretty clothes, I mean people are missing out on so much!
Sona: Well people can always look at the clothes of some of the celebrities, after all we style them
Sona: Of course not all the time, because of the lack of time, but when they do look good, it’s because we styled them
Jasmine: Mehndi kiti sunder hai (Mehndi looks beautiful)
Sona: I love it, somebody should create a holiday for mehndi, it deserves its own day
Jasmine: haha
Jasmine: We should make one
Sona: Another thing we have to do, nanhi si jaanein kya kya karengi (How much can two lives do (this one is hard to translate…basically that’s what it means)
Jasmine: haha
Sona: Art direction, production design, styling celebrities, writing
Jasmine: Hum kaam ke bhoj se marenge ek din (One day we’ll die of the burden of work)
Sona: But khushi se marenge (But we’ll die happily)

Foolitas

We were at the beach few months back and Sona said dudette, instead of dude. We thought we were so cool that we used this word but of course it had already been used before by many people, who knows how many. Today when we were coming from school, Sona used the word foolita, for a girl fool, to say bye to Jasmine.

Just so there isn’t any confusion, we’d like to copyright the word, “foolita.” And define it as a “girl fool.”

The Gurus will spread Gyan

We’ve decided from now on, we’ll be spreading more gyan* than usual. So here’s our first foray into giving more gyan to our shishyas**.

Today in Editing class, we were doing some exercises and we had to decide whether to use “whom” or “who” in a sentence. Unfortunately, in all these years of education, we were never completely sure how to differentiate between the two. But today we learned how. If you can replace a word with “he” or “she,” then it is the subject of the sentence and you should use “who.” If you can replace the word with “him” or “her,” it is the object and you should use “whom.” You might need to rephrase the sentence to make this work.

Example: The company needs to know [who, whom] it is insuring. (It is insuring him…so you would use whom.)
