An over rated adulthood and some computer games...

Father has a new pet.

It's a crow.

Every morning it comes to the window and waits for Father to give him cheese. Yes. Cheese is the only thing the crow wants. To get him to try other food, Father actually grated cheese and mixed it with rice. The crow smartly just ate the grated cheese and left the rice. 

Father specially went to the market and got a huge packet of Amul cheese to feed the crow. That's one lucky crow.

Can I rewind? I want to be a kid again when all thoughts would revolve around school, computer games and junk food. Thoughts about what game to play in the evening, or how could I annoy the Sibling. Or what chocolate I want. Those were the immediate goals and priorities. I miss that.

I was watching a movie with Mother when the trailer for Lion King came on. That instantly to us to the Lion King game we played on the computer for hours. So Mother, Sibling and I were like a team. Every game we played together, or we watched the other play it.

Some of our favorite games were...

Doom - Weird graphics, random beasts and countless weapons. We just had to keep shooting stuff. And if your ammo was over, I remember using a saw to kill people!

Hocus Pocus - One of our favorites! Collecting gems, making potions, all about magic. Wonderful game. 

Lion King. Brilliant! Especially collecting and eating bugs!

Alladin. Another brilliant one! Jumping on camels and eating apples.

Need for Speed

Road Rash - I loved kicking and hurting other bikers. (I am evil)

These were our favourite as kids. Always competing, always trying to break scores, always helping each other pass levels. When life was simpler and easy. When problems were about who has the top score right now and how to beat them.

Good times. 

Why do we have to grow up so fast?
 Being an adult is over rated. It's way awesome to be a kid.

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…
