And Now a Word From Braja

I couldn't be more thrilled. Braja is guest blogging for you today. Braja lives in India, but then You all knew that, didn't you....

If you like pina coladas, and gettin' caught in .... intense peak hour traffic in Calcutta with a million horns honking and driving styles that would make a roundabout in Rome look like an old age home on Xanax, then this is the post for you. You see, Pseudo asked me to guest post. At first I was stumped. "India meets Hawaii???" Now *there's* a union that could give you some thought. So I trained my mind towards Hawaii. There's a few ways to get there from India.
Hey wait! This isn't Salem for cryin' out loud. There are FAR more civilized and advanced ways of travel. And living in India, I've learned some tricks...

And that's where we're at today: meditation. Hawaii is an ancient culture with advanced techniques for meditation that leave the world in awe of their depth and stunned at their ability to conquer intricate techniques, ancient rituals, and complicated processes like this:

India, however, possibly goes a little further, a tad deeper, a smidgen more complicated (damned show offs, what with Sanskrit and mantras and all), and has for many years led the world with time-proven methods of meditation like this:


In the end, it's all Greek to me and my conclusion is we should all just stand around and do more of this:


Works for me.

Come back soon Pseudo...xo

I've told you before, flashing in public may be fun and a sure-fire method of cooling down on a hot day, but it'll get you in trouble one day. If I were you I'd sit down with the monkey and read the paper over his shoulder.

LadyFi said...

That's hilarious!

And you're right - Marilyn Monroe led the way with that air venting, right?

Frau said...

Love it! It's all Greek to me. Have a wonderful weekend.

Michel said...

hahah! good one! Indian Monkeys are obviously higher educated than they are in the states.

only a movie said...

Very fun. xxoo :-)

Prefers Her Fantasy Life said...

God, oh I mean, Rama, it's been so long since I flashed in public. Have a great weekend.

dizzblnd said...

Thanks for the lesson! Funny stuff!

Lyn said...

Braja -- laughter is a form of meditation, is it not?? So very funny ... thanks for making my face hurt!

smiles4u said...

Love it! Thanks for the morning smile.

Michele said...

Great post Braja! I think I'll go find a place that blows wind up my skirt.

Gaston Studio said...

Who would have thought those children had seen Some Like It Hot?

Brian Miller said...

really you should let me at least have one cup of coffee before you snap pics of me with my morning paper...

Creepy said...

This made my day. Ok fine, I just woke up a few minutes ago... a good start to my day anyway.

Return to Norway said...

Bwhahahaha - good one Braja :)

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

So nice of you to fill in for Pseudo.
Great photos!
Hey, I have been having trouble commenting on your site. New computer; I'll figure it out. But I wanted to let you know I am still reading your insightful posts!

Kathy B! said...

Perfect!

I think the merging of Hawaii and India is a beautiful thing :)

And I love that picture over the air vent. Kinda looks like fun...

blognut said...

I think the monkey has his paper upside-down. He might not be so bright after all.

:)

Kristan said...

Hahaha, cute! Thanks for guest blogging.

Nicole said...

Great post Braja, have a wonderful weekend!!!

darsden said...

Hilarious and we will follow you all over the world woman :-)

What a funny post. Have a great weekend.

Mango Girl said...

Great post Braja!

Take care of yourself Pseudo.

xo, Mango

ds said...

Ha ha--love it!! Thanks.

Sprite's Keeper said...

Woo! Braja, you made my skirt fly up a little there!
xoxo

Captain Dumbass said...

I'd wear a skirt if I could do that.

Suzy said...

That was funny. The 2 pervy girls were a little creepy though. Thank God I like creepy.

Gran said...

Too funny, Braja!

KMcJoseph said...

But then I'd have to wear a kilt!

Goose said...

Where can I find one of those vents? It's gotta be a blast! Haha. Seriuosly though in Grays Anatomy Yang always goes down to the boiler room or wherever that is to relieve stress and make out. Like I said, I gotta find me a vent!

CK Lunchbox said...

My mom beat me for doing that. Now I just wear skirts at home.

Erin@TheLocalsLoveIt said...

Escape by Rupert Holmes is one of my Top 5 favorite songs of all time. It make me so happy.

♥ Braja said...

Clark, honey, I knew I could count on you....

Ann's Rants said...

That happened to me, actually.

No, I didn't transcend my physical body from India to Hawaii.

I did have a Marilyn moment one morning DOWNTOWN, where my skirt blew ALL THE WAY UP. Thank da lurd it was so early that not a soul was around.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Now you know why I like to wear skirts :-)

Very funny post Braja. THANKS!
xo

Not The Rockefellers said...

I like how the little girl on the left seems like such a pro....

Peace - Rene

♥ Braja said...

Ann: God chose you because you're perfect for it :))) And Rene, I KNOW!! She's a hoot....

gaelikaa said...

Nice post as always, Braja!

gaelikaa said...

Oh and Braja! Can you please come to my second blog gaelikaasdiary.blogspot.com? I have an award for you!

Midlife Jobhunter said...

Works for me!

Sandi McBride said...

LOL I believe that I can remember doing just that at about that age! Throwing caution to the wind, I'd find just such a gust of air, locate my best ballooning dress, put on my prettiest undies and standing with arms akimbo let the world enjoy the view. Makes me laugh to think of it. Works for me.

♥ Braja said...

Hmmm Sandi, why doesn't that surprise me :))

Beth said...

Is there a mantra to use when flashing in public? I can see that this has the potential to be relaxing.

sheila said...

Now I have a taste for a fruity drink! Ughhhh, and I JUST WASHED out the blender.
:)

What a nice thought to combine Hawaii and India. Me likey.

Spencer L Casey said...

Brilliant Braja! We should all just hang around and do more of that. I'm going for an updraft as soon as I find my flower dress.

lakeviewer said...

I'm transported, exported and blended enough by all this I don't know whether to laugh or cry for joy. Who knew that Braja could magically appear in Hawaii and introduce us to another blog-mate equally intriguing?

I thought I was in one time zone.

I'm dreaming. Don't mind me.

Debbie said...

Love that photo of the girls on the air vent! How cute.
And two of my favorite women together in one blog - it doesn't get much better than this.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Braja, I couldn't agree more.

Pseudo, Hope you're accomplishing things, We miss you. Thanks for sending in Braja to keep us entertained. Hugs to you, my dear friend.

♥ Braja said...

Spencer, I think your comment wins hands down. Or is that skirts up?

Keely said...

We *should* all just stand around and do more of that. I'm going to go do that now. I mean, it's 2am and the neighbours might wonder, but still.

Pouty Lips said...

Great post Braja. I loved it.

Fragrant Liar said...

HAHA! I did a little of that "skirt" blowing myself yesterday, in a steamy botanical garden that was threatening to suffocate me. A little blast of fresh air around the hoo-ha is always welcome respite. Sorry, a girl has to fan the subject sometimes . . .

Enjoyed the visit, Braja and Pseudo.

Melissa B. said...

Thanks, Braja...and thanks, Pseudo. Hope to see you back here soon!

Eternally Distracted said...

The Indian monkeys are so well trained they can read the paper sideways too?!! I think I would love the first method of transport ... It is definitely all Greek to me, but then I have to live with Mec! Nice post :0)

hiro said...

Nice to meet you.

I was going to paste the link without permission because I had very felt the interest for your blog.

Please link me with the blog if it is good.

tera said...

I would love to do nothing but stand around on a grate with air blowing up my skirt! Well, maybe add that pina colada or whatever it was, and then, by golly, it would be a perfect day!

Dingo said...

That little girl on the left is totally getting into the moment and enjoying herself. I'll have to remember how to do that.

Ananda girl said...

hahahaha... I love it! Nothing relaxes me more than a good laugh.

blueviolet said...

Yep, I think your solution sounds like the perfect answer to me.
