Of Vampires and kids....

Cried, cried and cried today. All I need is a Grey's Anatomy episode to become a human hosepipe. Plus when they show mothers dying, that's it. I have cried for a good forty five minutes. Now I have washed my face and I am wondering how to spend my evening. 

I want to go for a walk but I don't have my phone as K has taken it for repairing. 
(I have to talk to someone/listen to music/read blogs/watch videos when I am walking, I just have to)

So in the morning K wanted me to change my phone wallpaper before he took it for repairing. Why? Well my one and only celebrity crush Ian Somerhalder as known as Damon from Vampire Diaries is my wallpaper. You can judge me but I absolutely love that guy!

Also no matter what you think, I feel it is totally okay for a twenty seven year old married woman to have a huge crush on a vampire. Why not enjoy some fiction in an otherwise extremely realistic life. 

K - "The service centre people will think I am gay if they see this."

Me - "How does it matter, you never have to see them again. I am not removing his photo!"

I also want to read. I have a commission to do, workshops to plan and a bag to pack. But I just want to read. So I have ordered three books. 

The Lie by C.L Taylor
The Spy by Paulo Coelho
The Modern Gurukul By Sonali Bendre. This book is on parenting. An impulsive purchase. I am not a parent and there are no plans of being one for sometime. I just love to read about people and what they think.

Over time I have realised one thing. If you have a husband, you are already a semi-parent. Like half-parent. The amount of time and energy that goes in taking care of K is like a crash course on parenting. Men are totally "men" when they are boyfriends. Once they are "husbands" they become like kids. This is all in good spirit of course. K truly is my perfect partner and I love taking care of him, which is likewise because I am also the most stubborn annoying child myself. And the way he handles me, no one can. 

Guess that's what marriage is. Two kids taking care of each other till more kids come along. 

All in all it's a sweet journey. You end up having a best friend for life. 

PS - Thanks K for putting me first. Actually more like "putting" up with me!

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…
