Lights will guide you home

Vacation time is over. I'm still not back home ..... staying over at Maddy's place in Chi-town for a few days...chilling. But also working on a project for school. What can I say? I throw my foot on the axe sometimes! It's ok...I'm enjoying it. (yeah right...)

The weekend was funnnn. Ate good food, had kickass drinks and SHOPPED! Ate the best south Indian food EVER at the Aurora Balaji temple yesterday. Just HAD to pass on the information to the two K's in my life....both of whom would have died and gone to heaven. I think our motivations for going to the temple are skewed! :P I *think* we drove around downtown Chicago and lakeshore on Saturday night....but I was a little too happy (read: drunk) to remember exactly. I blame it on the 'Capriosca' we had at the Cuban restaurant....La Guardia. I had Chille Rilleno for was fantastic!

Another very very good drink that I made up this weekend...try this at's a martini...shake it or stir it...enjoy it...

1.5 oz Vodka
0.5 oz Triple Sec
2 oz Lime Juice
1 oz Raspberry Juice/Liquor

How was that? Excellent right!? Ok, once more...

2 oz Vodka
1 oz Triple Sec



Now coming to shopping....something is wrong with me. I have never been one to shop a designer stores...cos I find them ridiculously expensive. But this vacation...I've found surprising good deals....beat this: Guess, GAP, BCBG MAXAZRIA...and of course my loyal New York & Company. I blew about 150 bucks....which is not criminal. Andy doesnt know it....but i'm gonna pull the little sister card on him for this.... hahaha! Evil pleasure.

Been listening to X & Y by Coldplay....on first listen I didnt like any song except 'Speed of Sound'. But a second listen got me fixated on 'Fix you'. Powerul lyrics. Here's a snippet...

When you try your best but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And I'm out...for now....
