Thanks to Philo Farnsworth

I've been watching Taboo and Banged up abroad almost everyday. 

While the show Taboo is just so interesting that i don't feel like missing even a single episode, Banged up abroad is something that i've been watching for a very long time. I actually get scared while watching. I get so engrossed in it that i've often found myself screaming at the screen telling them not to get into smuggling and stuff for money. As if they can hear me. Its hard to even imagine what these people might have gone through for years in the prison.

The moment i'm home from work, switch on the television to watch these two shows. By the end of which i'll be in my thinking mode. So will move on to Two and a Half Men and The Simpsons.

To me, best way to end my day is by thinking how lucky Marge is to have a husband like Homer and kids like Bart, Lisa and Maggie.

Party???? No thanx

I hate it when people ask me "Where do you party?"  and when i say i'm not into partying, they look at me like i just said something unbelievable. How can you expect the whole world to be engaged in club hopping? If you are doing that every weekend or everyday(assuming you do not have a job) im happy for you 'cos that's your kinda fun. Not mine.

Now don't think partying is something i've done and dusted. Its not. Just not my thing. I can't get decked up, pay out of my budget to enter a party, listen to something that i can't even understand a single word of, look at extremely thin girls wearing clothes that i can't think of affording for the next ten years, come back home sad and hungry.

I have fun too. My way. Weekends are the days when i get time to meet my little monster/princess niece. I don't get to see her whole week. Even though all we do is fight, i like it. Its also the time i get to have a proper more than five minutes conversation with mum and dad. Meet friends for lunch or a movie and come back home for a good read. Sleep for more than 15 hours. Watch two and a half men back to back. Now who says i'm not having fun doing all this?

So next time we meet, remember to ask about how i spent my weekend and not which party i attended.

Thank you

feliz día

I'm feeling happy happy. This doesn't happen very often.. 

Was thinking about the half naked neighbor baby smiling at me every morning. Cab driver uncle giving me missed call to let me know he is waiting for me. Cab mate reminding me about lunch box if i've forgottem to carry it. Another cab mate's mum waving at me everyday. College friend who's ever ready to teach me bad words in English and Malayalam. Bakery friend whom i smile and wave at everyday (have never seen him for more than 30 seconds though). Facility guy at work who makes sure the water is perfectly hot for my green tea. Cafeteria guy who prepares maggi at 6:26 pm as i eat at 6:30 pm. Blog friend/workmate/new friend who reads every post of mine and follow up with a nice long discussion about it.. Team mate cooking bisi bele bath (South Indian dish) for me. Cab driver playing old bollywood songs making the drive back home at night peaceful. 

I feel lucky. Above mentioned few and a lot more people have made a huge difference in my life. This is my way of thanking them all for being a part of me.

10 Things about me

1. I always eat a spoon of sugar after having maggi.

2. I pretend to be a famous singer and sing in my room thinking of it as a recording studio.

3. Love the color yellow even though have very few clothes in that color.

4. At work, i stare at the calendar for more than five minutes. Everyday. (just to remind myself of the holidays)

5. I take the stairs at work. Six floors. Thrice a day.

6. Before going to sleep, i delete my phone messages. Not because i don't want anyone to read them. Just used to deleting. If there's a message from someone special.. i write it down in my diary exactly the way they have sent, with date and time. 

7. I have never read a newspaper for more than fifteen minutes.

8. Drink more than five litres of water everyday and three cups of green tea.

9. Can't sleep if i've fought or had an arguement with friends. Will call them up at night, apologize for no reason and talk about something funny to cover up my weakness. 

10. I hate cooking and have never spent more than few minutes in the kitchen.

Over the weekend, one of my school friend got married. I'm super happy for her. She looked so awesome. 

Met few of my friends after almost five or six years. I was so excited to meet them all, waiting to hear about all that they had done in the past and what they are doing right now. But a very strange thing happened. We were all so quite after few minutes of talking about what we've been upto. 

I had lots to ask them all and even tried my best to make a conversation with few. But something was missing and it din't feel fine. I could sense that everyone else felt the same. While having dinner, all i could think about was how everything changes over time. Appearance, voice, clothes, way of thinking, likes and dislikes. 

Its true that the only thing constant in this world is change. 

I like change as long its for the good and makes me a better person.

I just hate it when people continue to talk about something i don't agree with even after making it pretty clear to them that i'm no longer interested in talking about it. This has happened to me a lot. Infact it happens almost everyday. 

There are so so many things that i don't like to talk about. If we are talking for the first time and you expect me to tell you everything about my past.. something's really wrong with you. 

Don't ever talk to me about religion, caste and stuff like that. To me, there are only two religions and they are Good and Bad. ( guess Shahrukh Khan said that in the movie "My name is khan")

Do not talk about weather and seasons. I don't even know think about seasons. No matter what season we are in, i feel hot during the day and cold at night. Yes.. Everyday.

If you talk about music for more than an hour, might just walk away. I'm just not into music. Can't help it. 

If i'm saying "oh ok ok" for more than 6 times in 7 minutes, please leave me alone. 

To me actors are just actors. Nothing more. So if you want to cry about an actor getting married to his actress girlfriend. Please talk to someone else. 

Anyways you can always talk to me for hours about Two and a Half Men, how scary shadows are, ways to cook maggi better, how biting nails can make you smarter, how we don't need fork and a knife to have a meal ..

I luv blogs

I'm kinda addicted to reading blogs. Not a bad addiction..right? Obviously No.. Anything that involves reading can't be bad. Although it depends on what you are reading. If you know what i mean. ;-)

But I've been following few Interior Decoration and DIY kinda blogs. I'm not even interested in art and craft stuff.. so bit worried about what's making me read about house decoration. 

Been thinking a lot about this and came to conclusion that its because of the pictures in these blogs. Everything looks so unrealistically pretty and neat. Used to laugh at a friend as he read books which had lot of pictures and very few words. Guess i'm like him now going through the DIY blogs looking at before and after pictures without reading about it. 

Anyways i'm just reading blogs at work. Not playing games. So its all good. 

Note to my manager if she reads this blog : please be informed that i am also reading blogs on "How to develop leadership skills"

End of an era

What's going on with Two and a Half Men?  Who wants to watch Ashton Kutcher instead of Charlie Sheen? I don't... Just hate this.

Read in an article that the character Charlie was killed after being hit by a subway train. What on earth does that mean? It just doesn't make sense to me. Charlie never ever took a subway train. Or has he??? Don't think i've watched all the seasons but in the ones watched, never saw him take a train. He is so not the type who take the subway anyways.

The article explains more that Rose and Charlie ran away to Paris to get married, and she caught him with another woman. So she pushed him in front of a train. Now that is something i can't believe. Rose would never do that. She would make him suffer till the end of the world but not kill him. 

What are we gonna do without you, Charlie? Answer me 

I could watch the episodes back to back for more than 8 hours a day. Now what? Can manage to look at Ashton's cute face for an hour or so. Not more than that for sure.

This is bad. Real bad.

Am tip tare

There's something weirdly nice about being a loud typer. I love it so much that i've been watching videos on YouTube of people who have recorded their typing. Awesome people i must say. 

My intention is not to disturb someone or pretend to look busy. I've growm past the stage of pretending to look busy at work. 

Had not even given this a thought till a colleague of mine pointed it out to me few days back. Then it hit me real hard. Been thinking a lot about this and even did a bit of  research and found that its nothing to worry about. The three articles i read about loud typing did not mention it as symptom to dysthymia or bipolar. So i'm good. 

But anyways next time i'm asked "Why are you crazy" or "Why are you awesome".. i've got my answer. I'll make a really happy or extreme sadness face and say "I type loud"   happy face for awesome question and sad one for crazy.

happy happy?? No No

Reading few of my posts here, a friend of mine thought i'm going through tough phase which is kinda making me write posts in anger, frustration and other feelings of that sort. She is right. 

If you thought i was gonna disagree with the point made by her and write about how "happy happy" my posts are, then sorry my very few readers. I'm a girl.. don't expect me to be happy everyday. 

Anyways.. let me tell you all a little about my writing (wow.. always wanted to say that.. makes me feel like an author) when i login to blogger and click on create new post, sometimes i type whatever comes to my mind. I do. 

Everytime i come across someone or something awesome or stupid, i'll decide to write about it. Its just for a simple reason that i can always relate to things that are awesome or stupid. 

I know what you must be thinking now.. Yes, I don't have a name to my writing style yet. Will come up with something great though. 

Thanks for reading. :-)  (happy smiley)

I hate going to the bank.

Everyone wears glasses and pretend to look busy. Once i even saw bank man going through his facebook profile while there were three people waiting for his signature or something of that sort. I don't even know what bank people do. "How may i help you?" lady's very rude and gets me more confused everytime i ask her about bank things.

I never ever go alone. Dad's my man when i need bank things to be done. He loves it so no complaints there. He always does everthing and gives me a copper token with a number on it and then i wait for the token box robot lady voice to call out my token number. This is the only interesting thing i like in banks. I love the robot lady voice which says " TOKEN 136" "TOKEN 122" or something like that.

After coming out of the bank, i say my token number in robot lady voice to dad and he laughs twice and ignores me rest of the day.

Sour face

If you think Renée Zellweger is beautiful, something's really wrong with you. 

I feel she's got lemon or vinegar in her mouth all the time. I don't even think she can act well. Every time i watch Bridget Jones's Diary, it makes me angry thinking how they could show Colin Firth and Hugh Grant being in love with her. Of all the actresses they had to choose her or what? 

I'm just saying.. with very good make up, Elie Saab dress,  Liposuction and a year of acting classes, i'll be better than her. No doubt. 

To prove my point, i have the below proof. 

Where's her right eye???

Let me have a meal in peace

Why do you love talking? 

If i'm replying in a word or two, can't your peanut size brain understand that i'm not interested in what you are talking about? Don't think i've no opinion about what you are saying. I just don't want to be rude to you by saying it.

Sometimes its nice to have a quite lunch.. ok? At a table of six, if more than three are not showing interest or even looking at you while you are explaining in detail about your fifth grade sports day, i advice you to talk to yourself in your head. It helps. Trust me. Just don't make the lip movements, its scary.

If i want the recipe.. I will ask. Promise. Please don't start your "How to cook" lecture. I'm really not into cooking and can't even name more than four vegetables.

Because i can't tell you all this in person, hoping you read my blog and realise its YOU i'm talking about. 

P.S : While talking to yourself in your mind, smiling thinking about how awesome you are is fine. It boosts your confidence.

Where has Coffee Bite gone?

All i hear nowadys are "Ferrero rocher" (which i can't even pronounce) "Lindt" (bit confused how to pronounce) and "Bournville" for which the ad says  "You don't just buy a Bournville, you earn it"  What??? I just want to buy.

Its chocolate.. don't make it complicated. Why are all the chocolate ads so long and boring? Just show me the wrapper and i'll be able to decide which one to buy. Not interested in knowing how and where it was manufactured.

Forget about all these unpronounceable ones. Where has Coffee Bite gone? Shop uncle thought i was talking about coffee powder brand he doesn't know about when asked about it. When explained how it tastes, was given a toffee called Melody. Having that just made me angry. Its just bad hard chocolate with horrible light coffee coating. 

I just hope Magic Pop does not stop their production till i die. Actually for the next 500 years. I want my children, grand children and great grandchildren to have.

Till death do us part

Ever since i saw you.. you've been in my thoughts. I see you with other women. Why?? Don't you know you belong to me? If your intention is to make me jealous, its working.

You are what i want to spend my life with. You are what i want to say "Till death do us part". 

You think i'm not good enough for you.. Don't you?? If so... I'm ready to change. I swear on my new bag. No matter what i wouldn't cheat on you. God.. can't even think of it. 

Not that i care about your color. But love it if you came to me in Yellow.

Be mine Beetle. Please. 

I'll not call you honeybun.. Promise
