I Love to.....

  • Dance ...Would have loved to be a choreographer...Give me any song and I am confident I can dance for it...for sure
  • Write....Poetry is something I started very young. Strongly believe that it is one super way to express what u feel without another soul knowing what its all about.Now a days I blog ....while poetry was polished publishing ..blogging is DIRECT. Nope the 2000s don't need diplomacy in thought.
  • Draw/Paint/Sketch....From my biology classes to social science I found a reason to insert a picture into every answer I wrote...have entered many contests..still hunting for more...have won few...lost many....the love for art still earns to be nurtured 
  • Talk to Amma: I love to share my thoughts with my dear mom....she has always been there for me....in every moment of my life . A great support and an inspiration ....my want for abro/sis ends when i sit and talk to her...now a days we rarely get the time to have our chats ...its all about what's for lunch dinner breakfast and achu
  • Read Comics and Magazines : Yeah am no avid reader...a light reader am I. Love to just lie around on a couch with a hot/cold drink some snacks and glance through comics and magazines...woooww....the last time I did that was during my college hols....so long ago that is :(
  • Watch TV : Oh I love to have a hot bowl of noodles in front of the TV. And with so many channels to choice from its a joy to toggle between them and get to the rite channel of choice :D 
  • Go to the Cinemas: During my school days and college days I could go to the cinemas with my friends only if a parent accompanied us... after which I could count the number of times i went to the movies...Marraige brought dreams of weekly trips to the cinemas ( asked for too much I guess) but the reality had 1 inspirational movie every three months after 2 months and 29 days of  perspiration!!!! Have to chide M to take me to the movie of my choice and found it bugging that now I have found a few gals who would accompany me with equal vigor.
  • Eat : I love food. Any kind. Like to experiment. Thought I could anything under the sun until the waiter at a posh hotel in sydney placed before me a half cook salmon on papad that had the stink that could kill a thousand roses ina sec. And then my eatable list was one short :) From Burgers to biriyanis...From Sizzlers to Sev puris....I Love Food ..M often asks me eat to live or live to eat.....he's of the former club while me happy to be in the latter clad :b
  • Be with friends: I could talk pages about this one....Its my dream to have friends all around me...I love to socialise and very much go by the words'Laugh and Be merry till the music ends...then play the next CD'!!!!!
  • Travel: By Air, on the track, by water or on wheels anything is ok with me....I think this happens to be the single thing God thought M and I have to have in common. M loves to travel too. Though we barely get to travel ...the times we did have been wonderful....My lil Achu loves to travel too...So its a family thing and am I happy :):):)
PS: This is a dynamic list ...It has to be :D

Me vs My M's Gizmo World

I share my life with M with non-living things. I would like to describe these gizmos as nothing more than that. If there was a more basic explanation I would love to use it.

The I phone - Sure an apt name for that thingy that makes any person be happy being the 'I' and not 'We'. M spends most of his time on it, with it and for it. I wonder how life was before the invasion of cell phones. I practically can't get through a normal conversation without M getting a call or making one or just going into a trance glaring at the whatever resolution screen baaaahhhhh!

The Laptop - Occupies an equally strong position. Be it work or browsing or downloading he spends alot of the little times of togetherness we share with this laps all the attention.

The Camera - This was once an obsession..lately in the lean period but will gain momento when he invests in a advanced model.This craze would have gained consent from me only if he didn't fancy clicking only his I phone grrr/lap top/car/the lil flower in the garden rather than clicking some people!

Then there is the car and all that goes with it.He reads a thousand journals about it. Most of our outings after office have been to car showrooms for test drives. And my son is a party to this. Happy atleast the 2 of them bond when it comes to the cars in their lives.

If M instigates a chat it would be about the above mentioned stuff or about his car or about the next high definition home theatre that's in town.Now a days since M has ventured into becoming Share khan, he adds the market to his list of topics

I don't now whether to pity him since he has a partner who is least interested in all of the above and would rather be doing other things. If God made us live together amidst such vast differences it must be for a reason....

PS. If only I knew the reason .....coping with an alien would be much easy for both of us !!!!!

MEN GRRR!

- Nothing is expected outta them...except by their wives :b which is not considered as a valid expectation
- Their mothers mother them ALWAYS
- Work lasts only until they are in office space
- They get to sit down and read the paper AND get the tea hand delivered..grrrrrrr
- They can walk out, walk in, take a trip at any possible time with or without any kinda prior notice
- Ask them their day's schedule and the answer is "I don't know"
- Their mobiles are busy/ringing/not reachable...they are in a very important meeting...
- They test drive a million cars a zillion times
- ONLY their time is precious and needs to be managed
- the greatest assumption ...they are always right
- and the tea cup lies in the drawing room until it is accidently broken by the kiddo or picked up by the woman to be washed and kept ready for tomorrows tea ...baaah !

PS. There maybe exceptions...but sighhhhhhh....they will remain to be exceptions for another decade!

Three Weddings and a Meeting

Tomorrow  21st November 2009  happens to be the most eventful day I guess....To start with ...since all the other days turn out pretty eventful when they end with no prior notice :- /

First Invitation I received nearly 2 months ahead was that of my office junior.
Then  My school friend's sister is getting married
Then my client's son is tying the knot too
So many knots all on one day

I think this day (22.11.2009) happens to be the last muhurtham for the year 2009...
The next muhurtham will be somewhere after 15.01.2010
and so the rush :)

Its gonna be Rush day tomo....and what I have decided is
Go for the day long meeting - get back in the eve- get dressed and go with achu and M for wed-1 reception- let Acha go for wed-3 reception- Sunday morn go alone or with achu or with achu and M for Wed -2

Ps - Hoping the day will be enjoyable..the degree depends so much on so many things...

UPDATE : Had my damn migraine attack :( so couldn't go to any of the weddings....managed to go for the enjoyable meet though :D

My life @ this moment

- The readiness of a friend to give me company when I go to my monster ( the dentist) brought a tear to my eye...thanks Sayee :) 
- The need for a sibling rises yet again in my life. But God has given me a bunch of cousins to fill the gap.
- I know beliveing in God and surrendering to him is the only resort man has...and I am doing that every minute...God peace of mind is all I ask for......
- Learnt that getting a space decluttered  and organised is a ongoing process....always!

PS. I know I can never be without certain people in my life.....I might live but it will never get the completeness it has with them in it....
