So here, we have oil going past $125 a barrel and the papers are splattered with oil companies asking the government for a Rs. 10 increase in the price of each litre of petrol……makes me wonder wtf is goin on!

I mean, a Rs. 10 increase will see the price of fuel go past Rs. 60 per litre…..and apparently that still doesnt bring the price in line with what the fuel costs the companies to supply on a per litre basis…. In effect, they’re running at a significant loss and now have put up the red flag and said that they won’t survive much longer.

Now i remember some time back, when petrol cost around Rs. 45 per litre, one of these newspapers did a quick story on the fact that the actual cost was only Rs. 13 per litre and the rest of its, almost 200% thereon, was actually various taxes!

What i wanna know is, when you have an overheating economy, with inflation rearing its ugly head, growth at a yet healthy 7-8 %, why don’t you cut the friggin’ taxes and atleast ensure that the prices are constant at where they are? Now whilst i understand that the Government would lose some revenue in the short run, in the long run, with the increase in consumption, the revenue would surely prove adequate for a government whose motive isn’t (or ought not to be) profit.

And here, we have the government mulling over this for months….makes me wonder wtf is goin on in their heads….like, if you have a reason for not cutting taxes, insisting that prices dont touch inhumane levels and murder the oil companies in the interim, atleast let us know why!

Things just add up……to an already full plate. We add, add and then add some more….only to not realize that what’s on the plate ain’t disappearing! Very soon, we’re gonna end up with a plate of unfinished stuff and then, the heaven’s will fall, the season’s will change and maybe, just maybe, i will be able to get this stuff rolling once more. Just need that li’l push and then we’ll let momentum do its job.

Good idea to lose weight!

A Guy’s New Weight Loss Program

A guy calls a company and orders their 5-day, 10 lb. weight loss program. The next day, there’s a knock on the door and there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic, 19 year old babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign around her neck. She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign reads, ‘If you can catch me, you can have me.’  Without a second thought, he takes off after her. A few miles later huffing and puffing, he finally gives up. The same girl shows up for the next four days and the same thing happens. On the fifth day, he weighs himself and is delighted to find he has lost 10 lbs. as promised.

He calls the company and orders their 5-day/20 pound program. The next day there’s a knock at the door and there stands the most stunning, beautiful, sexy woman he has ever seen in his life. She is wearing nothing but Reebok running shoes and a sign around her neck that reads, ‘If you catch me you can have me’. Well, he’s out the door after her like a shot. This girl is in excellent shape and he does his best, but no such luck.

So for the next four days, the same routine happens with him gradually getting in better and better shape.  Much to his delight on the fifth day when he weighs himself, he discovers that he has lost another 20 lbs. as promised.

He decides to go for broke and calls the company to order the 7-day/50 pound program. ‘Are you sure?’ asks the representative on the phone. ‘This is our most rigorous program.’

‘Absolutely,’ he replies, ‘I haven’t felt this good in years.’

The next day there’s a knock at the door; and when he opens it he finds a huge muscular guy standing there wearing nothing but pink running shoes and a sign around his neck that reads, ‘If I catch you, you are mine.’

He lost 63 pounds that week!!

Getting through customs – smile

A distinguished young woman on a flight from Ireland asked  the Priest beside her, “Father, may I ask a favor?”

“Of course my child what may I do for you?”

“Well, I bought an expensive woman’s electronic hair dryer for my Mother’s birthday that is unopened and well over the Customs limits, and I’m afraid they’ll confiscate it.  Is there any way you could carry it through customs for me?  Under your robes, perhaps?”

“I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you: I will  not lie.”

“With your honest face, Father, no one will question you.”

When they got to Customs, she let the priest go ahead of her.  The officer asked, “Father, do you have anything to declare?”

“From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare.”

The official thought this answer strange, so asked, “And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?”

“I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used on a woman, but which is, to date, unused.”

Roaring with laughter, the official said, “Go ahead, Father.  Next!”

Laundry day!

Posted in Uncategorized on May 11, 2008 by pensivelawyer

Today was laundry day….which for me means ‘out with the old and in with the new’.

Spent a long long time deleting most of the old songs on the ipod and putting in some of the new stuff i’ve developed a linking for. This would include some trance,  One Republic, David Gray, John Mayer and even James Blunt!

I put this to the test on a fantastic workout and boy oh boy, the results were amazing. I sensed that new music brought out that added lift which enabled me to go that much longer, a much needed aid in this dreadful heat.
