Of crunchy Lettuce Leaf and echoing lyrics


I love Subway. Yes, the food joint. Testimony to the fact: I am capable of eating both my solid meals of the day at subway. It beats any food joint, any day of the week and twice on Sundays. If you're actually doubting the authenticity of this claim, then you have not experienced the delights of gastronomy. Pardon me if my bias towards vegetarian food is too much for you to handle, but can you really blame me for drooling at the thought of a sub with mayo and south west dripping from its either ends? That is not all Mister. There is the extremely vital ingredient for this magical staple. And no, I'm not talking about adding toad hair or cat toe nails to it. A great sub, preferably a veggie delight if you ask me, is incomplete without the Mighty Lettuce. Now I have not been the biggest fan of lettuce all my life, but it was one of the vegetables which would sneakily find its way into my food and I would never shower it with all my attention. But the gratitude has finally sunk in. We have a lot to be thankful for, Lettuce is quite high on that list of things. And if its lettuce dripping mint and mayo, it kicks ass of the plain-jane lettuce. The first bite is always the best. The crunch of the fresh green lettuce leaf mingling with the taste of the sauces. Its like the non-cosmological equivalent of the Big Bang. Diverse tastes flying in all corners of your mouth. And you can just close your eyes and let your taste buds do the tango.
On another thought, whats with Rihanna?
No seriously. First there was Umbrella. Where the Ella-ella-ella echoed so many times that it trojan horsed its way into your head and for a long time, thats all that played in my head. Finally, with how much ever trouble did I manage to wriggle myself out of this one(getting addicted to some other garrulous track by then of course). Along came Russian Roulette by R to upset my apple cart. Yes, I like throwing tantrums about a lot of trifling things in life. Why do all her lyrics end in the same way? The last word echoing a number of times till the last syllable! It is emphatic undeniably, but I really doubt that the idea behind her issuing an invitation (or a general offer as my Contracts teacher would call it) to stand under her umbrella was to draw attention to it.
That aside, "So just pull the trigger-trigger-trigger" *descending echo*
Later.

That has to be the most unconnected and random blog I have ever read! Unconnected..but informative..and funny! But then again, no surprises there. Your equally random, drunk or sober. Did you mention something about being vegetarian? *raises eyebrows*

Subway should pay you. And as for the bloody song, STOP SINGING IT.

subway. cant believe you wrote a whole blog on subway! well with some rihanna thrown in but still subway? Yes, i know its good but its not exactly mind-blowing, maybe for you pseudo-vegetarians (who to quote "dont like to eat chicken unless someone else has bought it") who harp on about the "unbeatable health-quotient" and the "wholly natural taste". Let me enumerate some of the drawbacks of subway-
1. Shit expensive unless you have the appetite of a cat.
2. Their non-veg sucks, the chicken teriyaki tastes like boiled chicken with two drops of teriyaki sauce and the tuna sub tastes like a nutrella-sub.
3. Theyre notoriously miserly with their sauces unless of course you are a chick and flash a big smile and bat your eyelashes sweetly.
So there.

P.S. Cant comment on the new rihanna track since i haven't heard it. i dont have a t.v.
