Kooky moods and some kookiness

I have been wondering since last night, "what should I write about with K?"

After many Whatsapp messages with Mom, she suggested I write about my "killer mood swings". I like the idea as Tanvi and mood swings are two sides of the same coin. But instead of killer I have used a new word today. I chose kooky. Kooky means strange or weird. (Google it, it's really a word)
K can't believe it's an actual word so I suggest you all look it up.

Incidentally my pet name for K is Kookie, as in cookies/biscuits. But I guess since he is as weird as me I shall now call him Kooky. (sounds the same, so he won't know what I exactly mean).

We all have mood swings I am sure. Mine borders on bipolar disorder I guess. My moods have the reputation of scaring the living daylights out of K and Mom. The Mother is used to my moods and K is finally getting very "very" used to my moods. Your moods swings have the tendency to affect the people you love the most. So the days I get my horrid or lets say kooky mood swings, God save K and the Mother. (Otherwise I am a lovely person)

I feel two emotions at the same time. When something funny happens, I laugh (obviously) and in a split second I start crying. When the funny instance is occurring, at the same time I remember something horrifying, thus it makes me laugh and cry simultaneously. (Kooky, I know. Does it happen to you'll?)

Sometimes I just randomly dance to get attention, or I sing in my worst possible voice. These are attention seeking tactics when I want "bhav" from my Mom and K. I used to do this with my pet Toulouse too. He always gave me attention, especially when I started dancing weirdly. He would wag his tail, thus encouraging me to create more atrocious steps.

Also when people I love are peacefully sleeping, I have an unnatural desire to disturb them. It's just because I am not sleeping peacefully so I feel they shouldn't too. Hence I will throw something on the floor, like a bottle or a book. Or else I will just go and wake them up. I used to tickle people before to wake them. I tried it with my Dad once. I bent over to tickle his foot and got a massive kick on my face. He claims he did it in his sleep, but well I am sure he meant that kick. So now I do not tickle anyone in their sleep. Mom and K both have Maradona feet. Thick and strong. One kick from both is enough to kill me I feel.  

 My other standard mood swing is when I just do not want to talk to anyone. This happens often. I hate people and as I am getting older, my hate seems to increase. I just do not feel like talking to anyone sometimes. There is so much to think and do that I feel talking is just a waste of time. That's when I go into my shell. I just want to be left alone. This lasts for about half an hour, sometimes one hour. (I feel its normal more than kooky)

One more kooky fact. Last one I promise because I am sure you do not even care about my kookiness. I eat Tic-tac in even numbers. Remember F.R.I.E.N.D.S, it is Monica's quirk too. I only eat two of them, sometimes four. Never one or three. (Even K doesn't know this)

So enough kooky crap for now. Peace!

PS- I am a chess lover, so here is a "knight" inspired K doodle. 


  1. I stumbled upon your blog through #AtoZChallenge and your posts are very interesting. The good post is one where the readers feel that you are actually talking to them and your posts are like that. They just have that effect where I felt like I am talking to a person. Kooky no it's called sheer brilliance :)

    And, I just love your doodles.
    Keep writing!

Of Modi's and mints...

"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…

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…
