Dinner mints are small mint flavoured sweets usually served at the end of meals...usually. Today in Trinidad, dinner mints are used for much more than sucking. Its:
- served with your bill at restaurants
- for sale in some offices
- used to lure tips at bars
- used to somehow apply the love writings to your life
- used during insulting someone for bad breath
I lay on my back, staring at the stars in a "freeness" state of mind....thinking. I kept bouncing up hurdles that turned into troubling questions that I did not have the answers too immediately. These questions really puzzled me.
- If one billion years elapses, that is surely enough for an entire generation to pass right?
- Really and truly, how big is the universe?
So I am currently bored. I decided to google "Shivan needs" and see what I came up with.
Here are the top ten results.
1. Shivan needs prayers
2. Shivan needs this win and a loss from someone just ahead of him to get into the playoffs.
3. Shivan needs to get off his pedestal and realise that to a lot of experienced gamers this game isn't rocket science
4. Shivan needs to walk to the nearest insane asylum
5. Shivan needs to turn 3 more or gain 72 more Zombie points to reach the next level
Looking at hard core figures suggest that, for http://guardian.co.tt, the 2nd highest majority of traffic comes from Trinidad and Tobago. The first is the US.
One day I was just laying in bed staring at my fish bowl (well now my brother's fish bowl)...apparently he named the fish Ziggy.
Ziggy is a gold fish and the size of bowl is about 40 cm in diametre. Then I was thinking: life as a fish must be pretty boring!! Imagine just swimming around in a small bowl with some coloured stones at the bottom. You can literally circle the bowl in like about 3 seconds. How lame! I actually felt sorry for Ziggy.
Sent this request a few days late. Rajiv, may you rest in peace. http://guardian.co.tt/news/general/2009/05/08/three-friends-perish-car-…
