Absurd day 1.


 Another random day in my life. Oh, my experiment design got selected for class conduction. I am really surprised, as I made the presentation at 1am, since I was with Toulouse the whole day. He had an emergency surgery to remove the beer cap from his stomach. Anyway thankfully everything went well. So my design is really simple, where I will be studying how moods affect problem solving. Sadly when you are selected, it kind of becomes your responsibility to handle the material for the whole class, mail them references and reports, etc. But anyway, I am happy. 

I may be getting a viral. My throat's been weird since yesterday. Its like that black thing from Spiderman 3 stuck in my throat. I hate it. And since I am talking about "absurd", my rickshaw broke down yesterday at Juhu circle. Now there is nothing weird about that, my ricks always break down, or puncture, or the gas is over. But this time they way it broke down was absurd. The handle came off! Can you believe it! The rick just stopped, the driver is like the left side of the handle just broke and its not working. So he caught another rick for me. Now that rick was weirder. The driver requested me to sit inside and wait, he had to give a letter to someone. Hmmmmmmm...So i waited, partly because I just wanted to sit peacefully and listen to songs and other part was that I was too bored to look for another rickshaw. 

After like 10 minutes, a pest control guy came and took the letter. They discussed something and then both got inside the rick on the driver's seat. I was stumped. The pest control guy then got down on the way.

I came home and slept off.

Was woken at 4pm since I had my exercise class. I quickly ate and then exercised. Made a mistake of telling my Sir that I want a one minute break, so he made me climb my building stairs till the 7th floor. That was my break, a "light" walk. Things got annoying when my  cell battery was about to die and I found out that my brother had taken my charger with him. That was it. It's like lava erupting. I was so angry, so so so very angry, that I started to cry. This is the way my anger gets out. Through tears. What pissed me off was that he's a nokia user, and I am samsung. Now there are 3 to 4 nokia chargers at home and only one samsung charger, so why the hell was my charger taken!! My anger was then passed on to mom, who passed it to dad and then was passed to Karan. 

To top it off, I didn't eat dinner, instead tried to make mashed potatoes which sucked and then I couldn't find the AC remote. The only thing that maintained my sanity was this cool movie I saw last night. It was called the "triangle"..really nice concept. It wasn't exactly a horror movie, nevertheless I got chills. After that I slept off. Now I will be studying. Have a test on monday and essay submission along with experiment material making. Plus Ganpati is coming on Wednesday and I have to help Dad with decorations.



  1. heee heee heee, i just couldnt stop laughing when i read about at that rickshaw break down and the charger, lol even i use to land up doing things unintentionally which my sis use to just hate it, any ways she is married now so i dont get a chance to do those mischief, but we definitely laugh alot remembering them when we meet.....
    glad to know that cap is out of toulouse,( woof woof )
    hey mashed potatoes will definitely taste nice if u add some cheeses(little), mustard oil, olive oil, boiled carrot, and boiled beans, salt and pepper with toast ( thats usually my break fast when im alone ) ...

"Get cash" said my Beautician.

From where, the sky? I retorted angrily. 

Cash has become a huge problem right now. Modi's move is great but it has affected the common man's life very badly. Can you believe it, tomorrow I have an appointment with my beautician and for a meagre amount I have to shell out a cheque since I do not have any cash on me right now. 

I want to go to Pune to visit my Grand Mom and sadly I have no money to pay for the taxi. I doubt that particular fellow whom we contact takes any card payment. So basically we all are stuck. 

Moving on to other issues that I go through...

K has downloaded an app called "In shorts" or something like that in my phone. I am suppose to compulsorily read and study it. Why? K feels I have no idea what is happening in the world and I should know the basics. 

To be honest, he is right. I really don't have that much knowledge about the current happenings plus I truly do not care about "news", what is hap…

Because Mommy hates my eyebrows......

I hate this weather. It's all wet and weird. I am so surprised at myself for nearly finishing my commissions for September. Alongside I even managed to watch two movies. I had decided to watch them only on the completion of my work as a "treat", but well I just cannot say no to a movie night with K. Actually I cannot say no to anyone when it comes to watching a movie. So I ended up watching Freaky Ali which sucked. And Pink which did not suck at all. What a movie!

I called the "Mother" to discuss Pink and the seriousness it showcased about the way women are judged in the Indian society. After ranting for a couple of minutes about how we are perceived and shackled with responsibilities and judgements, she replies -
 "Have you done your eyebrows?"

Now my eyebrows are currently a crisis for my Mother. The fact that her daughter has disregarded the importance of physical maintenance is shocking for her. Since I have been piled this month with maddening w…

To the 2016 that was and a 2017 that will be...

Happy New Year Peeps! *sneezes hard*

I just returned from a fabulous seven day holiday and now I am feeling the, to quote my friend R - "Holiday withdrawal symptoms". 
So for me the symptoms are mild melancholy and a viral infection. 
The year 2016 has just gone by too fast. Like literally too fast. It was a year of love, family, travel, art along with loss, hurt and pain. It was a bittersweet year for me. During Gudi Padwa which is a Maharashtrian New Year, there is a famous tradition that we follow. We never did that, well since we have never been a traditional family. Father and Mother have been free birds always and their need for flying free has rubbed on to us. The tradition was to eat a mixture of neem leaves and jaggery. Of course I am sure it must have tasted disgusting but it had a symbolic reference to it. It meant that life would always be a mixture of bitterness and sweetness. We have to hope for the sweet but also accept and appreciate the bitter. We have to accep…
