Happy Deepavaleen!


May the flickering lights of your neighbors TV blaring with the Steelers game bring you cheer. May the shivering breeze wafting into your home as you try to open the windows to let the curry smell drift out greet your heart with warmth. May the almost bare trees shower you with the love of the remaining leaves that hang on for their dear lives. May the Halloween trick-or-treaters not digress Goddess Lakshmi to fight the Frankenstein instead of entering your home. May you eat crackers that come with soup to remind you of the ones that emit noise and light. May your new jeans bring you as much excitement as a new silk saree. May the jack-o-lantern brighten your porch. May you have your fill of Halloween left-overs (Reeses- peanut-butter-cups) instead of laddoos and burfis. May you meet and greet all your friends today in scrapbooks and walls.

Happy Diwali to you all out there!

LOL! Happy Deepavali to you too. I, being a Pittsburgher as well, can completely relate to your greeting!

Your posts are hillarious - love the sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek humor. Keep 'em coming.

that sounds like a dutch name - "happy de paavaleen". of course, not being a pittsburger (or a burger of any kind!), i cannot relate to it.

anyways, happy de paavaleen to you too.

patrix:

i don't know about pi's loyalties, but he sure can keep up with both the bucks and the steelers year round. only come super bowl time, might he need to choose - that ain't gonna happen this year for sure.

- s.b.
