How Lazy Are You? 0

Posted on August 05, 2014 by Rashmi Ganesh

Whenever I feel the need to exercise, I lie down until it goes away.”  ― Paul Terry


Are you one of them? Do you roll on the bed on weekends trying to measure the length and breadth of the bed? Are you sitting with food in your mouth till it forms a little mountain inside your cheek?

If you can relate to any of these symptoms, then you have the ‘laziness syndrome’- a very serious condition that makes you sit all day like a couch potato (especially on weekends), and no amount of pressure or screaming can move you from this state!

Nodding your head to everything I just said? So let’s check out how lazy are you?

1. You dropped food on the floor, but you couldn’t be bothered to pick it up. After all your favorite show is on TV and a little food on the floor wouldn’t hurt anyone. Would it?  Nah! So you just sit there waiting for someone to clean it up.

2. Did you take a bath? When someone asks you that you give all kinds of reasons for not showering. Saving water, too much bath is not good for your skin, saving the earth, and what not! So you stay in the same pyjamas all weekend staying away from the washroom as much as possible.

3. There’s a pile of dishes in your sink! Eeeks! But you couldn’t care less. Dishes are meant to be in the sink and someone will eventually clean them up. So why bother? And if you don’t have time for a bath let the dishes at least have one!


4. You just love buying the inner wear. Well not because you love them so much, but because you couldn’t waste your time washing them. Yes! If fresh is what it’s meant to be why not buy some!



5. Hunger strikes but you just can’t let go of the bed. So you shout your lungs out to whoever is listening and tell them what you want to eat. Or you just call up the pizza guy who apparently is your very good friend because you couldn’t be bothered to cook, drops by with your favorite pizza! Exactly the way you want it!

6. It’s Friday night! Your friends are planning to party and get sloshed. But you just bump them off saying you have too much to work on. Yes! you just can’t think of leaving your bed and the sheer joy of lazing on it on a Friday night till Sunday! You are just waiting to reach home and plonk on it!

7. You hear screaming from the hall. Your friends are watching the scariest horror movie of all time, but no amount of screaming can startle you. You are too preoccupied in your laziness to give the ghost so much as a stare.



8. The TV has been playing the same ads over and over again but you can’t lift your finger to take the remote that’s on a table near you, because it’s too much of a distance to cover. Instead you watch what’s on TV till there’s nothing playing.

9. You want to attend to nature’s call in the middle of the night but your laziness has hit you so badly that you just postpone it till morning. Hoping that your bladder would understand!



10. Someone is knocking on the door but you pretend as if you didn’t hear it. You wait for someone to get the door and revel in all your laziness and curl back right in. Besides, it could be anyone so why bother when someone else can get the door. It would be a good walk for them you think!

If you can relate to more than three on this list, kudos! Your laziness is off the charts and skyrocketing into the kingdom of ‘Laziness’. You deserve an outstanding award for ‘outstanding laziness’.

5 Stages of ordering pizza for lunch 1

Posted on April 24, 2014 by Rashmi Ganesh

I’m sure you have friends who loooove getting a salad for lunch. A typical excuse for getting a salad sounds like this, “It’s a light satisfying meal” “It’s too hot to eat anything else” “I’m getting all my nutrients for the day!”

And it’s not just women who give such excuses, but men too these days (Something about eating less carbs!)

Coming back to excuses, now let me tell you, whoever tells you this is actually telling ‘BIG LIES’. They would give anything to have a cheese filled Pizza. Yes! Cheesy delight with loads and loads of toppings!

But the process of ordering and having a pizza is an ordeal filled with distress from the start to the finish. And no human should go through it.

If you have anyways chosen to tread this undesired path, here’s what you can expect.

Stage 1: When hunger strikes




I’m hungry! It’s almost lunch time. What? Wait! It’s just 10.30? 10.40? Ok, It’s 11! 11.30 is good time to eat. What’s that rumbling sound? There’s no construction happening here. Oh! wait, that’s my stomach.

Stage 2: The debate between pizza and salad


    www. reactionsimages.tumblr.com


What do I eat for lunch? Salad? Well, maybe a burger. It has salad too, ummm…sort of. I think I’ll have a pizza. But I had it yesterday for lunch, and for dinner too. Salad? Guess, I’ll settle with pizza today too.

Stage 3: The indecision


    www. reactionsimages.tumblr.com


So should I get a plain cheese Margherita? Or loaded with all kinds of chicken? No, I had that yesterday. How about veggies today. Yuck! Who eats veggies even on pizza? But some kind of veggies is good! Ok, let’s settle for half veg and half non-veg pizza. Yes! decision’s made.

Stage 4: Acceptance


    www. reactionsimages.tumblr.com


Oh! But what about my diet plan? My gym instructor will know I have eaten pizza. :( How will I ever reduce my pot belly? But a little cheese won’t hurt. I will run an extra three miles tomorrow…ah, maybe one mile extra. Man, I can’t wait to get that pizza.

Stage 5: Resolution


    www. reactionsimages.tumblr.com


Yummy pizza! I’m too full though. Oh god! can’t keep my eyes open Yawn!  Tomorrow I’m definitely getting a salad.

So the next time you order a pizza, you know what you will be going through! But in case you can’t resist your love for pizzas, you can always order online on JustEat.in.



10 Popular food phrases and what they mean 2

Posted on April 10, 2014 by Rashmi Ganesh

Let’s go bananas…bananas…bananas…

Bananas…bananas… bananas…bananas.


Wondering why I am singing this song? That’s because I’m really hungry and my mind is thinking ‘bananas’. Ok, jokes apart. While you may enjoy this song from the film ‘Phata Poster Nikhla Hero’, most of us don’t realise how important food is in our lives. We so often use food phrases in our conversations. Yes! It’s cool to talk food phrase slang! It’s the ‘yo’ thing or in thing.

So let’s check out what these food phrases actually mean. (By the way, the thing about me being hungry is no joke at all :P )

1.  He’s a good egg or He’s a bad egg

Meaning: He is an angel at heart, or He only looks good, but is up to no good


We all love eggs, but can we tell if it will turn out to be a good, nice smelling omelette? So that’s what this phrase means. You can never tell how a person is from inside.

You may know a lot of people whose head is egg shaped and if you don’t like that person for some reason, a devilish thought may pop in your head, “Now that’s a badly shaped egg head”. :0

2.  Chew the fat

Meaning: To engage in light-hearted conversation.

This phrase goes back to a tradition that Eskimos followed. They used to chew whale blubber like bubble. (Now that’s gross!) Since it took a long time to chew, it is believed that it was a great way to pass time.

So when you have loads of work, and you tend to have meaningless conversations with your colleague, that’s when you are actually indulging in pure time pass, or in other words – “chewing the fat” or in some cases chewing someone’s brain.

3. Cool as a cucumber

Meaning: Someone who is totally cool


This expression has been derived from the cool temperature of the cucumber. Yes, the insides are 20 degrees cooler than the outside.

So when you hear someone being referred to as ‘cool as a cucumber’, it actually means he is a totally chilled person, a cool dude. (If you want to confirm whether he is cool or not, you can use the thermometer, and check if the mercury actually dips below zero. ;) )

4. That’s the way the cookie crumbles

Meaning: It’s meant to be


Imagine you see your favourite cookie; the last cookie in the jar, and grab to munch on it before anyone else sees you. But it breaks apart and falls on the ground. Now you can’t feel despair and cry over it right? It was meant to be. The cookie was meant to hit the floor and get covered in dust. So that’s what this phrase means. If something is meant to be, it’s just meant to be. But if the five second food rule doesn’t apply to you, you can always pick it up, dust it and enjoy it.

5. Piece of cake

Meaning: Something that requires little or no effort


This phrase dates back to 1800s. In America, cakes were given out as prizes during competitions in which slaves were made to circle around a cake. The one who walked in the most graceful way, won the prize.

Now you may think that cleaning your lady’s purse would be a ‘piece of cake’, but only when you dig in that purse; will you realise that your lady’s purse is actually a treasure trove of old bills, cards, scribbled papers, credit card statements (Phew!)  You may be left wondering why she has all these old bills. But you’ll never get an answer to that. Maybe you could do jiggle around a cake, and hope for a miracle to happen!

6. Butter someone up

Meaning: Flatter someone


The origin of this phrase dates back to ancient Indian customs. The locals would throw little balls of butter at statues of Gods, to seek favours from Higher Powers.

So we all know that when someone praises his boss for no reason whatsoever, and follows him like his shadow, he is only trying to butter him up. All the while hoping that his boss slips on that imaginary butter, hits his head and gives him that big promotion. :P

7. Spill the beans

Meaning: Give away a secret


This phrase is believed to have originated in ancient Greece. Back then, when they needed to decide on an issue, a vote was held. White beans meant a ‘yes’ and black beans were a ‘no’. If the vote collector dropped the jar and a black bean spilled out, the vote was ruined.

So when your friend tells you about an embarrassing situation he/she has faced and swears you to secrecy, but the BBC news that you are; you still go ahead and tell people, that’s when you have spilled the beans.

8. Use your noodle

Meaning: Telling someone to use his brains

Wondering how does a noodle compare to one’s head? Well if you look closely, noodles do look like brains. Grossed at that thought? Now that’s not the intention. The phrase just means making use of one’s brains.  Another closer look at the noodles and you will fall in love with these long strings of joy again. After all, it’s the best food for any hour of the day, and the quickest to whip up.

9. Go bananas

Meaning: You crazy, I’m crazy, let’s all go crazy


This one originated when zoologists tried feeding monkeys’ bananas, and the apes got all excited with taste.

So the next time you see your friend acting like an ape, going all crazy over a dress or a cheese burst pizza; dancing with excitement, you know for sure she’s gone bananas.

10. Wake up and smell the coffee

Meaning: A reality check


This phrase originated in a Nescafe ad campaign and was popularized by the late advice columnist Ann Landers.

So when someone tells you to wake up and smell the coffee- No, they are not telling you to actually wake up to sweet smelling filter coffee, but they are only trying to give you an indication that maybe your pant are on fire, so watch out!

(Pssst! Most of these food items are part of some mouth watering dishes available on JustEat.in. So order them anytime you want)
