I scream because I ate Ice Cream : (

Today was technically the last working day of the twelfth standard for me and my classmates (we only have revision exams from now till that horrible month of March when we have to write the Bored Exams) and we made ice creams today in the Physics lab, well that was what we were hoping to do anyway. Making the ice cream was part of our Chemistry practicals (?) and if you did it properly you could earn as much as 10 marks. So we didn't want to mess up something as simple as making ice cream, did we? But mess up we did. Who knew that you had to add milk to make ice cream? We used two packets of custard powder, water and dairy milk 10 rupees chocolate and the end result was a very thick, grainy, semisolid yellow bleargh. I was especially disappointed because I had done a lot for the project (I had brought one kilo of sugar and I made sure that no one removed the ugly wet cloth that was kept on the ice cream machine to prevent the ice from melting) and after so much effort I will probably have a pretty severe stomach ache now :(

Nevertheless it was an interesting experience with tempers fraying, people fighting for a cup of ice cream and then spitting it out and some people putting salt on other people's ice cream (Who does stuff like that anyway??) I thought that school would end on a poignant note for me today (read line 1) but some idiot used the ice-cream machine and made some bleargh even worse than the previous bleargh and dumped it in my lunch box. So I had to clean that up and some of the bleargh fell on my uniform and I had to clean that up...it's a long story which ended with me leaving school on a very grumpy note.


Well after today's experience I have new found respect for Baskin Robbins, Movenpick, and the like who, despite charging exorbitant amounts of money, at least give you ice cream that doesn’t taste like your own puke.

sivabalaji said...

niyantha u r crazy , how do u know how puke tastes like unless u have eaten it before.............

Neon said...

Man U is definitely gonna win some trophy this year.

Neon said...

antarius & sivabalaji,
You do know that puke lingers in ur mouth for 3.4 seconds once you vomit. And Im pretty sure I never mentioned anything about me relishing my own puke!

Antarius said...

let me put it this way... I dont relish syuch memories and hence dont remember what puke tastes like...
Thats a Gourmet's job...--> Like u :P

Man U is definitely gonna win some trophy this year.

Probably the madhumitasenguptajayantiramaswamypapadvaddamm rangapolichimpamaganraoramaswamyreddy trophy for bad playing

Leon said...

lol.. But seriously what practical was it?

Neon said...

Anonymous Thanks

Leon It really was my chemistry pracs. We had to do a project for ten marks- we could make soap or we could make ice cream, we chose ice cream.

hobbes said...

You didn't know that you had to add milk?
:@!!
Kwality Walls Rules!!
Movenpick is beyond my budget though....

Neon said...

We actually had planned to add milk but the guy who was supposed to bring the milk was absent( it seems he was suffering from a migrane...bs). So we thought, 'What the heck' and added two packets of custard powder :)

Aditya said...

Ganguly's been dropped from the suad for the 3rd Test? What do you have to say?

Vishal said...

i say FOUL..............the dots represent profanities i refrain from exposing wat they are.. and man utd will def win something.. did u see them destroy wigan??

Neon said...

Vishal,

4-0! I rest my case.

Neon said...

Aditya,
What the hell are the selectors doing? I mean you bring him in back into the team, ask him to perform, he bats decently, helps string in a couple of partnerships, and then you drop him bcos u dont want him to carry drinks! I fail to understand the selectors' logic.

Antarius said...

Who to drop then?
If he stands on the crease any longer, he will sprout roots and be banned for damaging the pitch.


So.... Yuvraj is in killer form, we need an opener. Allbowlers performing. laxman is fieldinbg well too

DADA was the worst fielder there... He shd just sit out and work at the domesteic level.

Im a fan of his, always been. Still he isnt in form, and I dint like the way all the Bhengolli's are rallying. Pranab Mukherjee is not supposed to open his mouth

And congrats on ur 5000th view!!!

Neon said...

Antarius,
See, Saurav has performed, Yuvraj has performed better. I feel that Saurav should have been kept in the 15, play Yuvraj. If you're planing on giving Gambhir another chance, play him, if you're not, pick Jaffer. What baffles me is the way they've treated him. How can you drop a guy after he fullfilled the conditions that you've set for him. In that case, dont pick him at all for the series.


And congrats on ur 5000th view!!!>
Thanks! and congratulations on yours too!!

Antarius said...

danke on the views thingy

Its simple, Saurav is getting the same treatment as Akhtar got. Saurav has disciplinary problems and Greg Chappel does not like him for that. Shoaib was like that, Mr. Arrogant until they kicked him out, and now is wayy better than what he was

Ganguly should sit out for a while, play cricket at the domestic level and make a GOOD comeback

Kanishkaa said...

takes the fun out of eating ice cream doesnt it?! of course u gotta add milk. oh and sourav will comeback for the pak tour,after Yuvraj's customary failiure which happened just now.

Aditya said...

GANGULY

Ganguly apparantly was responsible for spreading rumours about his teammates to other teammates. For example, before the Ganguly-Chapell spat, in Zimbabwe, Ganguly was casually talking to the coach about who should be in the team's middle order. The coach said the ideal middle order would be Kaif, Laxman and Yuvraj. Ganguly then asked the coach which position he should be in. Chapell then said that Ganguly should step down.

Ganguly stalked off angrily, went to Laxman and told him that the coach wanted Laxman out of the team.

Laxman was disappointed and went to Chapell and asked him what he should improve on and why Chapell wanted Laxman out of the team.

Chapell didn't understand what Laxman was saying and Laxman told him that Ganguly said the coach wanted him out of the team.

Chapell then said - "Ask Ganguly to say that again in my presence."

Ganguly was brought forward and then he started to feel a bit embarressed said mumbled something about Laxman being out of the ODI team...

Neon said...

Hmmm, very intersting. Where did u get that info from?

Antarius said...

man... with that stare of Chappel, even the Prince of Kolkata would get the feeling like that of Gibbs in 99 when he dropped S. Waugh on 30

Aditya said...

When's your next post coming? It's been almost two weeks!

Neon said...
