26 !!!

Its been such a long time. I regret to write this line every now and then in my blog, but seriously, I kind of have lost my fluency with words or I cant think in  terms of words these days. I still remember the days when ideas always struck me on my bus journey to office. Really, those were the days, man!

I was totally intending to write on the day I turned 26. I had so many thoughts then. Must say 26 is a very tragic age to be, for me atleast. I have this strange feeling of getting old after I turned 26. Only one or two girls of our batch are yet to married and 90% of those married have already made their contribution to the country’s population. And the percentage of guys who got married is oscillating between 40 and 50. But its when the guys in your batch start having kids, that you exactly feel Grand-old. Now that that count has risen to 3, I am already feeling like a Granny.

Even though I must confess that technically, I have been in the Granny post for the past 3 years. All thanks to my Grandma who gave birth to 5 children with such spacing between them. Yeah, same to you Grandpa! Anyway I’m not going to let Aleikh (that’s my grandson) call me Granny. We seldom meet, so it’s kind of calming.
Anyways, there have been some major changes in me which I kind of noticed past 25. Like, I can watch a comedy show, comedy movie without a slight change in my lip length. Yeah, I guess I forget to laugh on such occasions. I have patience for everything in life. My genre of movies has changed from romcom to anything-but-horror-and-easy-to-digest. I can watch all 3 parts of Transformers for the umpteenth time.

I have started watching serials. These days I have been watching Iss pyar ko kya naam doon, Saath nibhana saathiya, Pyar ka dard hai, Honge judha na hum and sometimes I watch all the other ones in Star Plus just for timepass. Infact, my serial addiction has gone onto such a level that I have influenced my mom to watch it. Her understanding of hindi which had quite stopped after we got cable connection some 10 years back, is now improving. That’s quite remarkable na.

And I have become addicted to cookery shows and also to reading recipes in the magazines. Infact, these days I have experimented a lots of recipes, including rasagullas. Since I have mentioned it, I must also say that it was a failure. The rasagullas became so hard when they were kept in the refrigerator.

Anyways I intend to keep the enthu of writing going for atleast this month. My internet connection is a superb one. I can watch movies without buffering. Just skype is posing problems unknown to me. So chao for now.

Lessons learned in 2011

Happy New Year all you guys. I hope you all have a good year ahead. One that doesn't make you say that 'Oh Shit, 2011 was so much better'. I just wish I do all the blunders, all the mistakes, all the stupidities this year which can make it to my blog. Hehe :)

Since the year I took a new-year-resolution that I won't be taking any new year resolutions, I have been strictly following it. So what to write on this year's very first post. Ok! lemme write about the lessons learned during 2011.

1. Love dogs(in a broader sense pets). Put your husband and your dog in the luggage space of your car for an hour. After that open it to find out who loves you more :)

2. I have a very big apetite. A few days back I ate a full-biriyani for the first time in my life.

3. I am totally a vegetarian at heart. I still have feelings for the hens who sacrificed their lives for my tummy to satisfy.

4. Write more or atleast write something or else I will lose touch. I just don't know if I will be ever be an author which was my wish a few years ago,

5. Life before and after marriage are totally different.

6. Never ever love your job OR hate your boss as much as possible 'coz they both don't love you back.

7. People who think they are intelligent are actually not. That includes yours truly also.

8. I love love Rajnikant. If I had my go, I would certainly marry him. Over the years, love and respect for him has only increased.

9. N72 is a terrific gadget. So I have decided to live with it for more years to come. The dream of owning a Blackberry has been postponed till May 2013.

10. Driving is not my cup of tea. I have been struggling with an Activa for all these days. I live in Kochi near Kaloor. So guys, please avoid these places, k?

11. I am leaving politics for good. Its better to have I- don't-like-politics look than I-have-no-idea look. Got me?

12. I suck at mathematics. $200= Rs 880. Guess who calculated it?

13. I totally need a good picture. Realisation dawned when I needed a cover picture for my facebook timeline.

14. My blog is never gonna be so..o famous. So its high time I stop being so cautious about my identity. But since I so love 'Communi', I won't change it. But I will be more lenient.

15. I love making lists. And now you know it.

Chalo, I am winding up for now. Tata ...
