this and that…and some more.

More random stuff, after this and that. I feel safe posting this, since people actually commented they loved reading random posts πŸ˜€ So, Yay!

  1. Blogging seems to be taking a back seat these days. Having Internet restrictions is, I think, better than having full time access to it, and not able to blog! 😦  Work is such an overload these days, can’t find blogging time at work at all πŸ˜€ And at home, have Pumbaa, the husband and parents to spend time with. And somehow, the boss never understands why I blog at work πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ And I always get in trouble ‘coz of the way Shail‘s posts like this make me literally LOL/ROFL — that too, just as the boss walks by πŸ˜€
  2. I wish I’d win a 10 Crore lottery. Sigh! I know a million others wish the same — but seriously. If only the corrupt politicians would come clean, am sure we wont have to pay any tax — on ANYTHING we buy or earn in this country– for the next 50 years! Damn you all, you morons!
  3. Pumbaa always gives company while we have our meals. He waits patiently till we’re all completely done. He doesn’t make a sound till then, but after that, he knows he’ll definitely get a few crispy curry leaves from my plate — and till he gets it, he makes enough ruckus to bring the ceiling down! Sigh!
  4. The brother took a post graduation in space craft engineering (after mechanical engineering)…and now, because is too “overqualified”, companies keep turning him down. And he’s going mad. So, rule of thumb: do not study any of the more specialized courses: do either a normal engg or medicine?? Bah!
  5. I had the yummiest mangoes just now. Bought all the way from kerala. Kottukonam mangoes. Slurrrrp. Gotta bribe the friend more, and get him to bring more soon πŸ˜‰ Pumbaa tasted it too — and went berserk! πŸ˜€
  6. I rarely spend any time gardening these days. The minute Pumbaa spots me with a spade and a hose, he begins prancing around, and doesn’t let me do anything productive. I think he’s just jealous of the plants — coz’ they never get scolded, never get tied up with a leash when visitors come, never gets said “No” to anything they do, and always get to play freely in water! Yea, am sure he’s jealous πŸ˜€
  7. I am desperate for a cheesecake. Yes, the first time I even came to know something like that existed, was through F.R.I.E.N.D.S., when Rachel and Chandler steal a box of cheesecake from someone’s doorstep and binge on it. I saw that some 7 years ago. Recently, I got myself the all the 10 seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and saw it again. I want cheese cake. I want cheesecake. I WANT CHEESECAKE! 😦  😦   😦  I wish there was a Mamma’s Lil’ Bakery in Bangalore too.
  8. While we’re on the food topic, I recently realised that the ONLY food type that I crave for (from an eat-out; and non-homemade) are Pizzas, Mushroom Pasta in white sauce and Caeser salads — and ONLY from Pizza Hut. I think Pizza Hut is THE best place for pizzas! Everything else, I’ve realised, is makeable at home, with much better taste and flavour quotients. Seriously! Btw, can I take this space to once again whine for CHEESECAKE!?
  9. I love the Vodafone Zoozoo 3G ads — all of them with the “super” theme. Absolutely adore them. Such creativity, such effort, such appeal, such cuteness. And I equally, if not 10 times more, HATE the 3G Idea ads. The morons sitting in some smug ad agency someplace, coming out with these bloody lame “bus bus bus bus bus“; “run run run run run“, “loading loading loading” ads need a reality check. Can’t you see you’re already done enough damage to the brand? ‘Coz of Idea, people can no longer say “i’ve no idea”, for fear of being responded with a “Get idea”. And on top of that, you bring us Abhishek Bachchan triplets and connect 3G with the digit 3? Seriously, when exactly did you lose your brains?!
  10. If any of you’re planning to buy books/movies/most things you get in Landmark/Crossword, just go to Flipkart.com. Oh, I think I owe a whole post for that! πŸ™‚Β  I love Flipkart now. Totally! πŸ™‚ Flipkart Ki Jai! πŸ™‚

this and that…

Some random stuff (for lack one of one sigle thought, and a vent for the million others crisscrossing through my mind)…

  1. Life’s not all that great these days. Fed up of Bangalore (nothing new, I know! :D) The weather doesn’t seem to agree much with me, and I’ve had a bad cough since last Friday!! Over a whole week now — and gets esp worse at night. I think I’m causing more cacophony at night that all the stray dogs together! πŸ˜€
  2. Read two book the past 3 books and feel soooo good. The last book I read was over 3 months back! 😦  And now that both the books are done with, I’m feeling all pissed off. Yes, that happens every time I finish a story — esp when it’s one that I’m thoroughly engrossed in. When it’s over, I can’t take that the story s over and I cant read on; that I’ll have to find a good book asap.
  3. Pumbaa is such a sweetheart. When he sees you first thing in the morning, you get a royal welcome. Go tot the loo, come back and see him after a minute again, he’ll give you world-class treatment again. And then he scrams, picks up his toy and comes for a round of tug-and-war and fetch-and-drop. And then, when he tires out, he lays at your feet and licks your feet. Awwww. Chakkara!
  4. I read Sophie Kinsella’s Confessoins of a Shopaholic and Mini Shopaholic. So, I’ve now officially read the entire Shopaholic series — and I must admit. I’ve ALWAYS enjoy reading them. I am neither rich like Becky, nor a shopaholic. But the series has an uncanny ability to put me at ease. I read at someone else’s blog that this is such a dumb series, and she couldn’t understand how anyone (Becky) could be so dumb, careless and irresponsible. Well, I really don’t agree! I think Becky’s got an innocence, a completely different perspective on things, and a passion for things she believe in! I think it’s fabulous — not at all the “classic” category, I agree. But it definitely is entertaining — esp in troubled times like this πŸ™‚
  5. I don’t think I’ll ever comment for anyone’s Thursday Challenges, Friday Fotos or Wordless Wednesdays anymore. All your pics are awesome all the time, and I always end up juggling between “Fabulous”, “Splendid” and “Amazing/Awesome”. So here’s a collective comment for all your FF, TT, WW and such posts from now on:Β  Fabulous, splendid and amazingly awesome! πŸ™‚
  6. Pumbaa is extremely naughty! Of course, he isn’t Marley (yet!!), but his mischief is ALWAYS, much to my chagrin, targeted at my poor and lovely plants! Any chance he gets, he massacres my plants. Waaah! 😦 And the minute I scream at him and decide to spank him, he starts wagging his tail furiously and licks me all over. Sigh! Now, how can anyone expect me to remain angry with him after that?
  7. I wish the clothes in the laundry bag would just move their bums, get into the washing machine, wash themselves up and hang out to dry. Bah! Laundry is like a never-ending tedious process. By the time you’re done with laundry, you’re all sweaty, you decide to take a bath. And voila! There’s more laundry! Sigh.
  8. 24 hours seem too less a time frame to accomplish anything, these days. I need more time in a day. At least 24 more hours. Seriously!
  9. Mosquitoes are by far the worst insects in the world. Bloody &$#^&&^&^(*^&*(. I think they’re the ones who need to be annihilated asap! And Goodknight is not very brave or capable; and All Out really goes all out of power in front of these stupid blood suckers! Grrrr.
  10. Pumbaa is extremely intelligent πŸ˜‰ he understands every single thing we say. Say “chaya/bikket” and he’ll go straight to his plate and searches for it. Ask him where his “toy” is, and he’ll search everywhere, find it and ready himself for a round of game.
