So far, the year’s been baaad! I stepped into the new year within the grips of a flu; then I re-joinedoffice and have made my life a living hell; I find myself in the presence of someone that petrifies me all day long (I do NOT mean my husband :D); have breakfast-less mornings; I get almost no time to blog — and am losing out on the blogging spirit 😦 ; Makara Sankranthi turned out to be Maaraka (dangerous) Sankranthi — the special Karnataka lunch left me food-poisoned; but worst of all, I saw Chandni Chowk to China (CCTC)! Sigh! 😦
I thought I was done falling prey to un-sahikkable Bollywood flicks with the death of 2008 — when I sat through 3 hours of torture, a.k.a. Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. But apparently not! CCTC is living proof for the fact that Warner Bros can also go wrong. The film has once of the loosest script, irrelevant links of characters to one another; comic strips and dialogues that wouldn’t bring a laugh out of people even at gun-point (well, there were some funny one-liners, but countable within 5 fingers)… I just cannot believe Warner Bros agreed to making this movie! Apparently, they are afraid that it may fall prey to piracy. Have mercy!
There were a few scenes which made people sitting around me comment “This scene was not really necessary.” All I had to say to that (though I kept it to myself) was that “the entire film was not necessary.”
Well, now I know how the year is going to take it’s toll on me! God save me!
P.S.: Anyone who still wants to go watch it, please convince yourselves it’s going to be the worst ever film you ever saw. You just might not mind it too much, then! 😀 Do this, and you’ll be greatful to me! 😉
No more disclaimers…no more apologies…no more promises — because apparently, life takes it’s own course, without really caring what one wants from it 😀
When I came back to the blogworld after a 5-month break, I was acclaimed as The Comeback Queen and all that 😉 . Then, in another week’s time, I went on break-2 😀 . My parents had come from Trivandrum to spend a week here — and I was literally banned from using the Internet (even Gmail, not to mention WP!). They left a week back and I logged into AlphabetWorld and opened a “New Post” page, simultaneously opening MirrorCracked — and lo! I was addicted to Klueless with immediate effect!
Though I opened my blog everyday since 26th to post something, Klueless kept me glued to it. When I finally completed Klueless-1, I decided to post about it. But I made the mistake of opening Klueless-2 before opening my blog! I was glued again! 😀
Finally,I’ve broken free (no, I haven’t completed it). I ‘m halfway through Klueless-2. But something much shocking came up — I got to know that MirrorCracked was suspended! I found a dangerously-close-to-tears Nikhil on Gmail chat, deep down in the dumps, saying that WP had suspended his blog! Think of the lack of laughs in the world that would have caused! It would have been a global disaster.
But well, the issue has been solved. And that made me aware of the existence of a certain AlphabetWorld! 😀 Man, I still remember how I almost drowned myself when I lost my Gmail password once; I can only imagine Nikhil‘s depression. To lose a blog would be akin to losing a much valued part of your life — or rather, in this case — a much popular part! So, thought I owed my blog a post — probably the last one of 2008. Am sure I’ll go gayab again 😀 😉
Anyways, this year is also coming to an end…and am I glad! This year — especially this month — has been bad for me. Root canal treatment done twice (on the same tooth!); loss of my ATM Card and a few bucks with it; professional pressure; a harrowing life-and-death situation, thanks to a so-called friend; need to give-in to a lot of demands; and in this month: a bad back-pain [nothing new! (rolling eyes)]; a fight with my best friend (it’s been solved, thank God!); numerous cuts on almost all my fingers; and a bad fever!
Oh yea…good things did happen — I got a 5-month break from work (and Bangalore), had fun at home, got married, went to Manali and played in the snow! 😀
Well, it’s only when a year bids goodbye that you can abuse it :D. No fear of repercussions in the coming days ;). And so, for that same reason, here’s extending a warm welcome for 2009! Hope it turns out to be a wonderful one! I hope to be more regular in blogging…and Vimal‘s interesting competition for the Malayali (or pseudo-malayali) bloggers seems to be a good starter 😉 .
Wishing all you guys and gals a lovely, happening year ahead!
🙂 Happy 2009! 🙂
