The One About The Grammies and the Wednesday Rule

And we are back on track with hot and toasty news from the press about


Record of the Year goes to the Dixie Chicks with Not Ready To Make Nice off their recent album Taking the Long Way. They won 4 grammy awards! Is it political? Is it any good? You decide for yourself:

We are so so glad that James Blunt didn't win anything. But we're completely baffled on how he managed to get 5 nominations!

We were disappointed that Imogen Heap - an artist we featured not too long ago - didn't win her nominee for Best New Artist. She lost out to America's Sweetheart Carrie Underwood.

For the rest of the list of winners.

If you are a fan of chocolate cake, this is the cake for you! Jane's Cake Station at Jalan Kayu serves up the real deal. We're having none of that fluffy creamy chocolate mush, although fluffy creamy chocolate mush can be as tasty too. It's two layers of very soft chocolate sponge with a layer of fudge in between, enrobed in more chocolate fudge. It's not too sweet but very very chocolatey. It comes in three sizes: small, medium and large. The small size costs $28. Northerners should be familiar with Jalan Kayu hidden in the depths of Yio Chiu Kang and it's famous for its prata. Unfortunately you'll have to call in first to make sure you get a cake though! But we assure you it's worth the call.

The Wednesday Rule
If you wish to woo thy significant other over the weekend, ask her by Wednesday.

People have been asking questions about this rule. This rule commands that if you wish to date a girl, it's always a good idea to get the whole shebang of asking by Wednesday. Why? Because it just increases the chances of her saying yes, leaving your ego intact and your weekend filled with some fun activities. (:

Here's our reasoning:
Courtesy - It gives her ample time. She might want to prep for your date: buy a new dress, wax, do a swift gender repositioning surgery, etc. Who knows? It could be for your own benefit ;)
Cover - She may turn you down simply because she wants to look busy instead of sounding too eager or too free.
Casual - asking a girl a day or even two days before the D-day looks casual - too casual. If this is your intention, then so be it. You run the risk of making the date sound unimportant. Like i said this rule applies when you are trying to woo her. Don't be surprised if she refuses for some other more worthwhile activities such as cleaning out her belly-button fluff. If she really is cleaning out her belly button fluff over spending time with you..... she's probably not interested if you're alive or not.

But come on! This is SMU. Even if she is interested in you she might be genuinely busy with the multitude of project meetings, CCA meetings and general mugging. So before her calendar gets filled, reserve a space in her schedule and maybe you'll be able to reserve a space in her heart. (:

It's a theory, not a law, so take our advice with a pinch of salt and date wisely kids! Have fun on Vee-day!
