The Satan was once in love..

Exiled by the fairy angels and thy gods
The satan is forced to live in hell
He has to wear black while the angels flutter in white.
Black is one color which he despise,and nobody knows it
Because no one knows the real truth
He is a good one at heart but the gods were jealous of him
They were provoked by the strength of his love
Yes, the satan was once in love..
Eden was his abode, as beautiful as heaven
But he had to leave it on the request of god
To accommodate gods new creation,the man
But satan was permitted to visit
His home,which he had built so fondly.

On one of his visits he spots Eve,
The beautiful eve,with long flowing hair
And eyes,that could mesmerize anyone.
Her cheeks were like a ripe plum,
And she walked in the garden like a free flowing rivulet
He was awestruck by her beauty, rooted to the ground he stood.
It was love at first sight, he had never seen anything
So complete in itself, so full of life..
But, alas that was not how it was meant to be.
The gods were provoked, but they cannot punish the satan,
Satan is just the other side of god, equally powerful
So all the heavenly beings, conspire ..
And thus the serpent was sent ,
To lure Eve to eat the forbidden fruit..

‘Oh my beloved,darling’ the Satan cried his heart out
But eve was the darling of fate..
Even the angels couldn’t hide their despair..
Their tears poured out as rain..
Satan never wanted to visit his home again.
He shut himself up in the hell..
He wore black to mourn for his love..
And never came a smile from his lips..

This time the shopaholic really faced the heat :) My friend had come down to Bangalore from Mumbai for her job training. She is one of my dearest and closest of friends and also the unfortunate one because she has to keep all my secrets. Her name is monica and she is newly married. She just got returned from her honeymoon in Maldives..
So since as a best friend I couldn’t attend her marriage, which was in Mumbai, I thought of showering her with presents today. We both decided to meet up in a nearby mall. I took her inside and asked her to buy anything of her choice and told her that, it will be on me. She took some dresses. I was not behind myself..I also took some dresses. We spend almost 3 to 4 hours trying on and selecting our clothing.Atlast,the time came to bill everything.
I extended my credit card to the person behind the counter.
Never has a beep sound made me so embarrassed.. ‘CARD DECLINED’ ,it read in bold letters. I asked them to try it again.Again the damn machine gave the same message.My friend enquired, under what circumstances would it behave this way.The salesman gave his prompt reply , ‘only under insufficient funds’. The color drained from my face. Yesterday I saw that there was 13000 rs on my account and how come this? Somebody got my account number and password . And they have stolen all my money.(OMG)
And you wouldn’t believe there was no ATM machine on that big building nor anywhere nearby.(Bangalore is a metropolitan city. duh! ) Atlast my friend had to pay for her dresses as well as my dresses. But hey I am going to return it ok..
While my way back home,I got into an ATM and checked my balance.It said, 1300 rs only. Am i blind or plain stupid !!!

Don’t panic.Just swallow the urge.yes..thats all..just move on..
But that levi strauss top was so trendy .And there doesn’t seem to be more than a piece of it also..I think I am turning into a shopaholic.(mouth-open expression).I want a piece of everything in the shop,but that applies only to clothes.Pink is my weakness.
Tops,sweaters,jeans,pull overs and everything..And to tempt me into turning into a ‘full time shopaholic’ malls are sprouting up everywhere in banglore,just like mushrooms in kerala after a rain.
Have anyone seen the film ‘confessions of a shopaholic’, it’s a must watch for girls like me.The book series is also hilarious.
So me and my friend decided one fine day (after spending a fortune in shopping that day) that we both wouldn’t even turn to look at a mall,let alone shop. But you guessed it right, it didn’t even extent for a week.By the time she went to visit her parents in Hyderabad,I had already visited two malls.
But cant blame me also,I’m just a little red riding hood and the shop keepers are like the wolves dressed in the form of a grandma,luring me with offers all the time.During winters,it’s the winter sale,during summers,you have the summer sale,mothers day specials, valentines day special.,end of season sale,Gandhi jayanthi special and so on..
If a piece of cloth costs 400 Rs,during an offer period it costs 800 with a 50 % discount. Oh My God, a flat 50% discount sale,how can I miss it.And fools like me get attracted to the models placed in front of the shop also.They are in perfect shape ,so obviously any dress would look superb in them, can that be the case with me , with misplaced bulges here and there.?:)
The ill-fated day is not far,when I will turn bankrupt because of this shopping spree.
