Being all "wonder-womanly" on a not so wondrous monday.......


Monday's suck. 

I have a dead line, so much work and I am yet to start. I am suppose to pull off seven illustrations in two weeks. As usual I have left things last minute and now I am in a state of crazed panic. Can I run away to the mountains? No. Can I just pack a bag and backpack around Europe right now? No

 I have a house to look after, a husband to feed, lectures to attend, kickboxing to do along with getting all "acupressure-ized" twice a week. And now no amount of tea and re-runs of Friends can help me charge up or calm me. I just have to buck up, pull some all-nighters and work!

Mother calls me "wonder woman". But well, all Moms think that their daughters are wonder women. (Mom, I love it when you call me that!)

I love being busy. I always want to be busy. (My definition of busy - lots of tea, lots of art and lots of books)
But right now I just want to read my Harry Potter. 
Should I? Maybe for ten minutes I can. Along with another cup of tea. 

Okay, tonight I will stay up late and work! (I am already yawning, damn)

On a better note, I watched two movies yesterday. No amount of work stress can make me not watch a movie. So we went for Sully and Baar Baar Dekho.

Baar Baar Dekho wasn't too great but had a wonderful message. It teaches us to live every moment and concentrate on your present. We all are too hassled about the past or the future. But what is important is "this moment". We have to try to live each day extraordinarily and find happiness in every tiny moment of life. Not an easy feat, I know. But worth trying. I won't discuss this movie much because the Mother will kill me.
 (My parents found the movie stupid. Dad slept. Mom was impassive and upset since she dropped a whole tub of caramel popcorn. K and I found it okay)

Sully was brilliant! A must watch! 

Next on my list is Pink and Freaky Ali. But I will only see this once my work is done! A treat for myself on the completion of all my commissions. Also awaiting Bridget Jones Baby!

On a "sweeter" note, never have a lemon-chilli macaroon, its a very weird flavor. And do not have tea with it since you cannot taste the tea when you are having something overly sweet. 
This was one overly sweet splotched up macaroon.

That's all for now. Off for another cup of tea! 



  1. I used to not like Mondays but now that I am retired I love Mondays. I am glad for the peace when everyone else leaves the house on Monday. I look forward to seeing Sully!

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…

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…
