Avocado- Rose Milk Shots ....... I am high on a Wednesday !



Why would anyone follow what I am doing ..... I am no celebrity, just another fish in the ocean ! And how in the world am I expected to write my thoughts in just 140 characters ? Yes 140 and not a character more !! Not sure who thought of the magic number 140 .... Oh yah I forgot to mention that I am talking about Twitter. I had been trying and really hard to get a hang of the damn thing. Yes I am jobless !! So I have been trying hard to update my status every now n then .... like 'Having my morning tea ... forgot to add sugar' ,lol. And what makes me glad that there are an equal number of jobless guys like me who respond !
And now that I have finally nailed it .... here comes another one 'Google+', as if the existing social networking sites were not enough. My inbox is getting flooded with requests but I still prefer to be in my cocoon (read Facebook). I know I know .... there is nothing like loyalty, it's just that I refuse to move out of my comfort zone for the time being. It had taken me a lot of convincing and effort to move out of Orkut and join FB ! Yah I did it when my friends were on the verge of disowning me. So guys please be patient with this slow learner :)
Does anyone remember the blue 'Inland Letter' or the 'Yellow Postcard'. Will someone be still waiting anxiously for the postman to come on his rusty rickety bi cycle .... at least some where ?
Or have we left those things far behind us .... True, the Internet revolution has made life much easier and communication in the speed of light BUT even today I would love to sniff the blue color inland letter before opening it. I would still love to rush to the nearest postbox to drop my letter before the last van picks them up for the day. I would jump with joy on hearing the jingle of the postman's bicycle bell.
I agree ... I love being old school when it comes to simple things in life !!



Well ..... I had these avocados staring at me from quite a long time, wanting me to pick them up. I made these rose-avocado shots in a jiffy. And they were just perfect to lift your spirits on a warm summer eve !

Janine said...

My first time here, and your photos look great! I've never tasted a milk shot before, but the combination of rose and avocado sounds really good!

And ditto on the internet and technology thing - I still find great joy in receiving handwritten letters (no postman on his bicycle for me) - it's something an email can't replicate!

lovely clicks as always. avocado and rose is a new combination but can imagine it would marry beautifully together....the creamyness of the avocado and the delicate rose flavour....great.
