Dear Diary, There are some things more scarier than L.K. Advani becoming the Prime Minister of India and him dozing off in his swearing-in ceremony.

This year's Big Boss has left me amused. Yesterday, Pooja Mishra shook that biscuit like J Lo while The Splitsvilla guy almost kicked her butt, using beep inducing swearwords in the process. While all this happened, the rest of the women in the house fell over each other and that guy to pacify him. Now,
