when in rome..

Aside - The following exchange occured between us a few days back... it features on another blog as well... this has been ceremoniously brought across. heh.

Punning is a good disease to have. What ho, one of those addictions you can't go to rehab in rehab for!! Its the sort of thing that can keep you laughing the whole day, if you aren't careful!

Mj and I were at it again, the whole of saturday went in outshining the other at every opportinuty that placed itself in the way :) Here's an excerpt of an epic roman saga that was brought to sms!The context would be more complete in formation of this particular blog, if we included some of our earlier freak inspirations... such as

'When in Rome, do the Romans', or

'To do a Roman, you'll need to do a little roman around before you get one!' and things like that...

The following occured after they were doing Rome on the Travel and Living channel :) you know, the colloseum and all the throwing to the lions and all that...

Mj - Just for this, I want to make a bee-lion to the colloseum some day!

Kz - You know, the boyfriends in the ancient Roman empire probably said to theirrespective grilfriends:

"I'd walk the lion for you"

Mj - Hmm, if the girlfriends were imperious enough, they'd probably make the young romanscallwags toe the lion, not withstand the veni-vici'ing!

Kz -
*wipes off a tear of laughter* Whoopie! and the Roman singer would go:

"I drew a lion,
I drew a lion for you,
oh what a thing to do;
and it was all yellow! "

Mj -
And she said -
"For yellow lion drawings I do not care
Show me some real gladiator fare! "

Kz -
To which the singer cried -

"What is this life
So full of this fare,
You have no time
To stand and pair? "

Mj -
To which she shot back -

"Julius, to win with me a date,
Prove to me you're truly great"
and that my friend is the tale of how Julius decided to become the emperor :)

Kz -
Julius' repartee -

"Fight my Roman ass off to win a date!
Roam through countries, is that my fate?
Not on your life! ", say he to her,
Living up to his name, he sieze her!
"Prove yourself Julius! ", when impore she,
Utter he, 'Veni, Vidi, Vici!! "

We hit the ceiling then, i guess... neither was able to continue the romanexchange... Well, more communciation, more posts! more come up shortly hopefully... :) Happy reading!

Wicked stuff, empress. Here's something by way of punishment

Why did Maharshi mahesh yogi refuse anaesthetic when his tooth was being extracted?
He wanted to transcend dental medication.

Har har har! That was brilliant, NS!
Haven't been blog-hopping for a while now, I shall now proceed to redress the same, starting with the blog that isn't an autobiography qua autobiography!
