A visit to Calcutta is incomplete without a pitstop at the Moori* wala. The roadside vendor skillfully tosses snack together in less than a minute. After silently pleading to my stomach to not hate me for this, I gulp down the moori. Next up is Puchka wala (aka Pani puri, Golgappa).

*Moori is the Bengali word for Puffed Rice

Pseudo Painting and Happy Birthday Ish!

Because it’s Ish‘s birthday, I’ve decided to grant him his Birthday wish: That I should tag up this meme in his honor 😉 Okay, just joking. But please go and leave a comment on his blog and wish the cute guy 😛

So, here’s the tag: The person who tags you gives you five different words and you have to make five pictures based on those words using MS-Paint only. After doing the tag, you have to tag 5 other people and give them 5 words for their pictures.

The five words that Ish chose for me were-

  • An iPhone
  • The Apple Logo
  • The Windows Logo
  • A teddy bear
  • Cricket

Ermm…so I broke the rules a bit. First off, I used MS Paint for only drawing my iPhone. How ironical is that? Drawing an Apple product using a Windows application! And the next three (Apple logo, Windows Logo 😡 and Teddy bear) have been hand drawn and scanned. Cricket- Well, I give up! WTF do I draw for that? Yeah a bat and a ball…

1. iPhone- Proud owner of an iPhone 3G and the picture below actually shows the first page of my iPhone!

2. The Apple Logo-

3. Windows Logo- Ish did this just to piss me off, of course. I’ve been nice enough to hand draw this just because it is his birthday. 😉 Anyone who’s been my blog friend long enough knows about my hatred for Microsoft and its products.

4. A Teddy Bear- Okay, I kinda did a horrible job on this one. I spent more than 30 mins trying to make this look like a teddy bear: the hand look’s weird and the body and the head are completely out of proportion. Yeah, it looks kinda demented.  😐

5. Cricket- Don’t know what to draw. I skipped this one. Sorry! 😦 Here’s a birthday cake instead:

Happy Birthday

And now, I get to pass on the burden to five more people-

Arvind, Kiran, Suda, Lallopallo and Kalafudra. Please feel to draw anything you want! I’m too lazy to list them 😛
