iF yOu haVEn'T heArD


looks like my creative spell has passed. u noticed it too???
ever since a certain someone landed on this continent say.. oh i dunno.. like 1.5 months ago???
i haven't been writing so much??

coz u has been busy. and at home, then certain ppl insist on reading this and then u know... uhhhh.. like THAT's not happening... not like when i'm still alive .. and kicking... i mean its not like i'm 7 again and i write on the first page of my journal.. my personal journal mind you.. that 'WHOEVER READS THIS IS A DOG'
and yet ... this certain someone [ how pesky ] person will read it. and since i knew that this someone would read it, i spent the next 40 pages writing how bad this person was and how much like a witch in wizard of Oz and cruella from the little mermaid cartoon.. and so on.. but its not like those days u know..
and this time i got passwords and stuff... to protect myself :D

but other than that, uve noticed it too?? huh. the lack of posts these couple of months? well partly its coz its summer. and partly its coz i've been running around a lot.

ooooh did i tell you how awesome crater lake was??? ooooh it was AWESOME.
and so was the top of multnomah falls. u shud def go there if ur ever in this part of town!!

For that hour after lunch when you're sleepy and bored

oh buck up. winter is almost here. and the blog will be up and running full speed again very soon, when this certain someone leaves on the ... well lets just say very soon. and soon the insanity that is the wedding will start.. and soon you'll end up hearing all about how i have to wear freaky head gear on a day that now looks to be not a day for me at all.....

oh btw reminder to self. gotta give an Ankur 3 min talk tomoro. at this fund raiser.

LosiNG yOuRseLf

i'll admit. i've lost a lot of things. phones, watches, spectacles, myself.
now dang it. i've gone and done it. i've lost my mother.

well so here's the thing. we were supposed to go on a walk see?
and she wanted to walk slow. meander almost and i wanted to test my new awesome seinheiser headphones. see?
and so we agreed. we agreed that in some time i'd meet her near this bench.
and we went in opp directions.

and an hour later, i come back and ofcourse she's not there. and i'm like yeah... i'll just wait here and she'll be along any second. and yet she's not here. so i think.. hmm mebe if i follow the path she took, i'll find her. and i go.. and i keep going and i complete her mile and by now i'm exhausted and i'm thinking to myself. gosh i know, just know where she is, she's gone back home and its getting dark and i daren't go back without her.. and i wonder if i should be calling 911... hmmm and i wonder if she's lost and wandering around by herself..hey wait isn't that her out there?? coming from my house???
i KNEW IT. she HAD gone home and was EATING HER DINNER!!

and i've been wandering around for the last 45 minutes searching for her !!

tO LiSten iS sAcriLedGe

some ppl just don't know how to keep secrets. now wait. that's a bit harsh.... i mean they don't know how to shut up... i mean.. ok here's wat i really mean.

so its a sad sad day when i got to listen to ... ahem ... tips from my mother on how to spice my ... ahem ... life. and yet thats precisely wat she insists on doing!!

and if THAT isn't bad enough, now i gotta listen to hearsay bout the lovey dovey phone conversations, my neighbor's daughter has with her fiance. apparently i need to learn a lot!! :O
now i don't understand how my mom even KNOWS wat that girl talks with her fiance. lets call him F.

so S talks with F and comes and tells her mom everything. and i mean EVERYTHING. and this mom picks and choses the less racy stuff and tells my mother. who finds it hilarious to share it with ME and watch my face slowly turn an interesting shade of puce or purple, depending on the time of the day.

"oh haha, do you know wat S says to her F everyday? u shud do the same... let me give you a few tips on what you should be doing ..."

me: " oh good lord. heavens above. my ears. my poor ears. they're gonna explode. what have i done to deserve this? to listen to such stuff from my own mother..." [ me getting a lil over dramatic, hoping she'll stop. nope. no such luck ]

"oh u HAve to listen to this. apparenlty he's even suggesting that they elope! can u imagine. he must have got the itch" < her laughing hysterically at my expression >

me: "aaaaaargh my poor ears. my pooor brain."

"ohhh haha, see the moon. its so nice. do you feel romantic coz of the moon. u shud call him up and talk romantic stuff. do u already do that? wat do u say? why don't u tell me, i'll tell u if ur doing it right"

"!!??? are.... u......sputter..... sputter..... INSANE!! leave me alone. that's the last thing i need. a bunch of middle aged women in mlore, sitting around and discussing they're daughter's love lives and the conversations they have with theire fiances or husbands or anything!!!"
[ aaaaaaargh i need my noise isolation headphones ... like 10 minutes ag... aaaah blessed silence ]

i look at her , she's still saying something. but now these headphones are great!!! mebe i can like permanently fix them to my brain or something. i smile at her. nod show her a thumbs up and walk away. whistling merrily.

man! i shud have thought of this sooner !!!

ps: S. STOP TELLING UR MOM EVERY DARN THING U TALK ON THE PHONE WITH UR F. are u crazy!!! have some pride girl. really. the rest if us have zero interest in listening to ur coochie cooing. ugh.
