Under the spell

My phone thinks it's damn smart. It does not provide me with alternatives when it can't recognise a word I'm trying to type -- it actually replaces the word without consulting me.

Yesterday I was typing out a list of Indian spices for Viv to get from Mustafa and one of the items I wanted to include was 'Everest chilli powder'.

And what did I end up typing?

'Severest chilli powder'.

Oh well, good for me. :P

Ah, so you have a truly 'smart' smart phone then. Viv thinks I need a new one too. :|

Hahaha! You have not yet seen how random things at the bar can get. Wait till you see the next one. ;)

Can't wait!


Just saw the Harry Potter movie; problem is it is part I of II, so it leaves a feeling like eating half a dinner only. From my POV, it was well made and it drew me in. I need Part II, though!

I keep on adding words in my cell's dictionary coz I often type in hinglish with a few marathi words thrown in, toh easy hota hai type karna.

asli masale sach sach

gr8 title as usual. :)
oh i remember,someone once gave me mirchi ka achar, which was a tongue scorcher. i called her back to thank her for giving me another option to commit suicide if depressed by the snow :P (kiddin'!)
i called it '10 rupaih main maut'.
needless to say, i never saw the end of it. :D

Sayesha said...

Yeah, HP7(a) disappointed me. Maybe because I am such a big fan of the books, the movie seemed really watered down. :(

is the best! :D

LOL @ '10 rupaih main maut'! It's cheaper than rat poison also no? :P

CIP proposes the theorem:

Hypothesis: The combined IQ of a smartphone and its owner is an invariant of the motion.

Sayesha said...
