Yo Partner!

‘And they lived happily ever after…’ – I’ve spent many a summer afternoon buried in fairy tales and adventures woven in a red-coloured hardbound, rather worn-out copy of Grimms. Three decades later, I had the privilege of visiting Disneyland Paris. Who said Disneyland was for kids?? I loved every bit of it, especially the parades where Princess Jasmine, Snow White, Cinderella and the likes were dressed in all their finery. With a deluge of thrilling rides (rain too!), good food, shows and parades, the trip was a dream come true. However whenever I think of my trip to Disneyland Paris, … Continue reading Yo Partner!

Friday Frolic – The art of choosing a Name

One of the most difficult decisions in our lifetime is choosing a name! A name for anything important or special to you. Like your child, for example. Or a new venture. Its amazing how we want to find that most unique name of all, a name that no one else would think of! Only to realise, a couple of days after choosing it, that it is not so uncommon after all!!!! Some of us ofcourse, think radically different, and assume we believe we have ‘hit the nail on the head’. Like these names (of shops/enterprises) that I came across during my … Continue reading Friday Frolic – The art of choosing a Name

Five easy steps to get a headache

Five easy steps to get a headache    Simply talk to an acquaintance that fits the description below: 1)      Is extremely talkative – talks like he/she is an express train, or like he/she is suffering from diarrhoea and is rushing to find a toilet! Someone who talks without waiting to hear a reply, or on hearing a reply, pounces on that, and asks more questions than what Kasab has been asked! 2)      Is very loud – His/her normal voice is like a loudspeaker, so loud that you can hide your phone under the sofa and still hear the person loud … Continue reading Five easy steps to get a headache

Bits, Bobs and Sexy legs

Ok, if you are one of those few people who re-read the title just now, for your kind information, it is ‘bIts, bObs and sexy legs’. Perverts… 🙄 I miss blogging! I miss reading posts by my blog-buddies, I miss commenting, I miss replying to the very kind comments on my own blog! 24-hours a day is simply not enough! There is so much to do, so much to not do… and hardly any time to write. So here are a few bits and bobs…. 1) Just read this yesterday: ‘It takes all the running you can do, to keep … Continue reading Bits, Bobs and Sexy legs

I know I’m old when…

I know I am old when… 1) While filling in any application (even a darn credit card), I have to scroll, and scroll, and scroll a couple of pages down, to reach my ‘Year’ of birth!!! I mean, seriously, it wasn’t that long since I was born, was it? 2) I watch the Idols of our teenage years (SRK or Juhi Chawla) on screen, and realise they have considerably aged!!! So if a young and vivacious’Ghoonghat Ki Aad Se’ Juhi is a comical-looking old woman now, that makes me.. er.. Ok, let’s skip! 3) My kid asks me, ‘Mummy, which … Continue reading I know I’m old when…

Friday Fun – Look what I found! Day 12: Project 365

Guess what I found this morning, as I was de-cluttering? This!!!!! This timeless, gorgeous piece of music by the once-upon-a-time-gorgeous Lucky Ali!! Click this link to listen to the song on Youtube. I have many lovely memories associated with this song, and with the tape too, so this picture (supposed to be part of my Project 365), warranted a post on its own 🙂 Warning: Long, boring post ahead! So, this particular song, ‘O Sanam’ is one of my most favourite EVER! It reminds me of freedom, of being carefree and incredibly stupid. But then, such is the beauty of … Continue reading Friday Fun – Look what I found! Day 12: Project 365
