Parody[8]: My Hunger will go on! ~ A Birthday dedication to Nive! :)

Today its the Birthday of a very dear friend of mine…Niveditha…and she being a complete food buff, I dedicate this piece of parody to her! 😉
My thought while writing this was picturing how Nive would sing Celion Dion’s “My Heart will go on”….using the wordings “My Hunger will go on!” 😀
Enjoy and do wish her a Happy Birthday! 😀

birthday

Every green-thing in the menu
I know it, I taste it,
That is how I know to eat on

All across the city
Food joints and restaurants
I have gone to eat a treat on 😉

Near, far, wherever hotels are
I believe that this hunger is ever on
Once there I keep an order
And you’ll hear the urge in my belly
And my hunger will go on and on

Food can satify me one time
And last for just that time
And never can I say, the appetite is gone 😛

Food was what I just ate
Now the next meal is what I wait to
In my life this hunger will always go on

Near, far, wherever hotels are
I believe that this hunger is ever on
Once there I keep an order
And you’ll hear the urge in my belly
And my hunger will go on and on

Food’s here, there’s nothing so dear,
And I know that my hunger will go on
I’ll stay forever this way
There’s still an urge in my hunger 😉
And my hunger will go on and on

Happy Birthday Nive…Have a great year ahead! 😀

[Spoof-post]~ Mission Coding!!! ;)

I don’t know if anyone else has tried such monkey-tricks before…but I don’t mind pulling such ones off in a manner as humanely as possible!! 😛
This is a spoof of a post which my friend Niveditha wrote on her corporate blog…She called it ‘Mission Kitchen’ and I call mine “Mission Coding”…My piece seems more corporate, don’t you think?? Read it and you will surely disagree!! 😛 Btw to get into the groove, read the original post first, its right below my spoofy version!! 😉

***********************************************************************************************

I normally get accustomed to a technical piece very easily. But there is an exception here. One area with which I have never been able to establish a certain comfort level with, is coding. 😳 I so wish I could love coding as much as I love bugging. But alas I have never been successful in coding and most often I find myself confused about the stuff found in this alien of a source piece.

When left alone with the codes I am left wondering about the weird logic that goes into making it flawlessly run, and how ever much I try I never get any inclination to learn the “art” of coding. 😉 The few things I know I can do decently are…

Raise Syntax errors as instantly as Maggi… :mrgreen:

Make a somewhat decent review, that too just for two hundred lines of code. If it is more or less, I do not know the proportion…and I end up exhausting my vocabulary of technical words.
I can make documentation. Not perfect ones, but ya decent readable/understandable ones…

I can keep bugs in the code editor… 😎

Ya.. That’s about it. There is nothing else I can do in the area of coding, and I always keep listening to one standard dialogue from my manager: “What will you do when you get fired and go? Will you feed your wife with bugs too?”

Well well… I am sure I am going to get a very adjusting wife and am sure I will learn something or the other by that time. So I keep telling my manager not to take any tension from his side. And once I finish this clichéd dialogue I get nothing except a dirty stare from him. 😳

Ah. I remember one particular incident that happened sometime ago. At that time I was much weaker in the coding area than I am now. As was the situation then, my manager used to write the logic and keep it ready for me to build on it before I came to office every Monday. I being the lazy one that I am just had to take the logic and fix it somewhere into the code.  So there I take the logic (something that I thought was logic!) and added some syntax and gave a bulk of code to the poor tester who had asked for it. But that day I felt the original code seemed different and was acting weird. It was unusually throwing exceptions and looked like it had a lot of bugs. Not bothering to actually find out I ran the code package, and so did my tester. She was sweet enough not to say anything. Once my manager was back in the evening asking for the status, I asked what the problem was with the logic. And what he said made me, my teammates and the tester giggle our guts out. That FYI mail from the manager which I thought as logic to apply were actually some similarly seeming test datas for my information which I applied into development and I did not realize that! 😳

Ya… I know you guys think it’s a tad too much. But that’s how bad I was when it came to the coding. Thankfully I am much better now.

PS:  I have made a vow to myself to learn at least some basic coding so as to survive under my manager in the future. Let me see if I keep up this promise or as usual this gets bugged like all the promises I have made to myself. :mrgreen:

Mission Kitchen – Original post by Niveditha!! 😀

***********************************************************************************************

I normally get accustomed to a place very easily. But there is an exception here. One place where I have never been able to establish a certain comfort level with, is the kitchen. 😳 I so wish I could love cooking as much as I love eating. But alas I have never been successful in cooking and most often I find myself confused about the stuff found in this alien of a place.

When left alone in the kitchen I am left wondering about the weird ingredients that go into a meal, and how ever much I try I never get any inclination to learn the “art” of cooking. 😉 The few things I know I can do decently are…

Prepare Maggi… :mrgreen:

Make a somewhat decent coffee, that too just for two. If it is more or less I do not know the proportion…

I can make dosa. Not perfect ones, but ya decent edible ones…

I can keep rice in the cooker… 😎

Ya.. That’s about it. There is nothing else I can do in the area of cooking, and I always keep listening to one standard dialogue from my mom: “What will you do when you get married and go? Will you leave your husband hungry?”

Well well… I am sure I am going to get a very adjusting husband and am sure I will learn something or the other by that time. So I keep telling my mom not to take any tension from her side. And once I finish this clichéd dialogue I get nothing except a dirty stare from her. 😳

Ah. I remember one particular incident that happened sometime ago. At that time I was much weaker in the kitchen area than I am now.  As was the situation then, my mom used to heat milk and keep it ready for me to have my complan every Saturday before she left for office. I being the lazy one that I am just had to take the milk and pour it into my glass.  So there I take the milk (something that I thought was milk!) and added some complan and gave a glass of milk to the poor maid who had asked for it. But that day I felt the milk looked different and weird. It was unusually frothy and looked like it had a lot of water. Not bothering to actually find out I drank down the contents of my glass, and so did my maid. She was sweet enough not to say anything.  Once my mom was back in the evening I asked what the problem was with the milk. And what she said made me, my mom and the maid laugh our lungs out. That vessel which I thought was milk actually had buttermilk and I did not realize that! 😳

Ya… I know you guys think it’s a tad too much. But that’s how bad I was when it came to the kitchen. Thankfully I am much better now.

PS:  I have made a vow to myself to learn at least some basic cooking so as to survive in my in-laws house in the future. Let me see if I keep up this promise or as usual this goes hiding like all the promises I have made to myself. :mrgreen:
