An Inscrutable Girl

For Steve Allen…

Posted on: November 11, 2008

I save you the hard work by telling you that this post contains videos..Laugh out loud videos..and how i dint know about Steve Allen but i know who he is, now..

1. Steve Allen does not recognize his new bride when she appeared as a mystery guest on the game show “What’s my line?”

2. Steve Allen’s famous line “Is it bigger than a breadbox?”

3. And the best of all..Steve Allen’s infectious laughter. I bet you will be laughing too by the time the video ends.

My coincidental discovery of Steve Allen’s existence:

Once upon a time..okay okay..

I had been in the big university library that might look like an inspiration to a book lover to take up the challenge of reading the whole lot. But be assured there is more probability of aliens coming to earth to check us out than the probability of someone finishing reading the whole collection. It is that vast. Like any university library should be. There are scores of old books. Books that have not been touched since decades. One day when i decided to pick up some light reading instead of the usual electronics reference books, i came across the humour section, and the first book that caught my eyes was the one with a humor suggesting font with size 72 pt(perhaps) and written in colourful letters:” Bigger than a breadbox“.It had not been issued since 1990! Immediately, I reached for the back cover description and it said this. I read the book not once but twice. That began my fondness for Steve Allen. I am surprised till that time, i had not even heard of him! I liked the coincidence of stumbling upon the humour section because i was reaching for the fiction shelf. The book is great, just like him. Its such an old book, i doubt it is to be found anywhere other than university libraries.(Atleast here in India)

EQ..m having fun taking quizzes!

Your EQ is 147
You are remarkable when it comes to relating with others. Only the biggest losers get under your skin.

You are warm and open. Even when life gets you down, you're unafraid of the world and its challenges.
You are comfortable with who you are. And you accept your weaknesses - as well as the weaknesses of others.

While you are quite stable, you don't respond perfectly to every bad situation that comes up.
But you have enough emotional intelligence to know when you need a course correction.
