Weekly update

Well to start with,the past week was pretty much monotonous.

In the creative section I am in the process of knitting a shawl.I have 2 more yarns to go and it's killing me.I am blessed with lack of patience. :| This is how it looks as of now.
This,was my birthday manicure.The photo didn't really come out as well as I had expected.It was a glitter theme.The lighting was bad and trust me,it looks way better in real. 8)




I was more or less having a blank state of mind, and didn't have anything to write about.I would start out with something and would click 'save' and that's the end of it.

My cooking section decided to get screwed up this week.Nothing seemed to come out right.Goddd wouldn't that piss anybody off??!!!Some time back I was in the process of making my ever so famous  spicy beef fry.Guess what happened..?! I burnt the masala. Arrrgghhhh!!!! :@

My reading section remains stunted.I cant seem to read anything especially when both my hands are busy knitting and so are my eyes.I am still stuck in the ending section of 'Bluest Eye'

In the music section all that I have to say is,I'm addicted to this song.I was never a huge fan of Atif Aslam,even though he has a  commendable voice.A friend of mine had suggested this song.The song kinda grows on you.Stirs up a lotta emotions.



In the emotional/matters of the heart section I have been lying low.Haven't really been talking to my few handful friends.Missing maa,P,S & few others. :(

Moving on..in the visual entertainment aka television/Netflix section I am now officially addicted to 'Grey's Anatomy'.Till about few weeks back,it was 'Bones',however I finished all the seasons in Netflix and now have to wait for the weekly episodes on television instead of clicking 'next episode' on my laptop. :|| So I started watching Grey's Anatomy on Netflix.I am currently in season 4 :O

In the weather section I was found in a quite exuberant mode though.The reason being,it snowed.It snowed & snowed & snowed.In spite of my high spirits,I have to yet,rant that its freekin cold!!!

In the beauty section I have to shape my eyebrows.I am more or less like a bushy eyebrow woman. :|| On a happy note,I am quite pleased with the 'Conair spin air brush'.It's like a hair brush with a dryer inbuilt.It dries my hair while styling it as it dries.How cool is that?!!
In the browsing random sites/blogs section I came across this site called I waste so much time.com.
Hilarious would be an understatement!
This is one picture I found in that site.Awww doesn't he look almost adorable.The caption was'Hitler In Love'

Another site would be Post Secret.A website where people send their secrets anonymously in a postcard and it gets published every Sunday I suppose.

That's all for now. Thankyou! :)

Favorite day of the year!!

So,its that time of the year yet again,its my birthday!!Yeayyyy!!!!
 Happy Birthday to Me.. ♬  
My second birthday away from family and with R.I turned twenty six!
I am a kind of a person who loves birthdays and the surprises and everything associated with it.Birthdays are  always special,its your day,Well,today is mine :O

When I was a kid, birthdays were  that one day when you could go to school in your birthday dress, distribute chocolates among your friends,and feel special the whole day. Daddy and Maa would get me a chocolate cake(since I am sucha sucker for chocolates) and I used to blow out the candles and make a wish. Those were the days!

Then,Facebook came into existence!People ranging from best friends,cousins and random acquaintances wish you since the reminder comes up on their wall :P
I have no complaints, as long I feel special the whole day.I can be a kid sometimes & I don't see a reason not to.When I was back in India,as soon  as the clock strikes 12,there would be rush of calls and texts on my phone from friends wishing me on my birthday. Who doesn't love all that attention!!

R,who is such a darling who knows this birthday crazy side of me,always manages to surprise me in some or the other way.He knows my affinity towards lots of small gifts.The sheer thrill of ripping open the gift wrappers to see what is hidden inside.

However,I was not much in the birthday spirit this year.Maybe its because,I am not getting any younger!! Lol!!He made sure that I get the impression that he was busy and couldn't get anything for me.

How would I know,that he would come back from work,bearing small small gifts which would totally drive me crazy enough to start running around the house in joy and with tears streaming down my cheeks.Yea I am an emotional drama queen.We all are quite aware of that! :||

My friends would know that I am an earring fanatic.I am an owner of around 100-200 earrings.All of which ,I foolishly left  back in India.So,R straightaway hitting the bulls eye got me this one.Sterling silver with rubies and diamonds.Isn't he a darling?(P.S You can consider this post as one of my brag post!) Hehehe


I am a sucker for silver,so a sterling silver bracelet. :$

I loved this one the most,yet another sterling silver starfish bracelet. Can you see me beaming out here?



Which woman doesn't love to get chocolates and flowers from the man they love,huh?
Did anybody notice that pup with the soulful eyes?I could melt each time I lay eyes on that cute little thing.It seems R wanted to get me a penguin since,I quote "you are my penguin" Hehehe.However he couldn't find one it seems.

Me and R are planning to go shopping now and probably have a candle lit dinner.This is yet again a great day and I am ever so lucky to have R by my side.I guess I know R would be my best birthday gift ever! The love of my life!

I am indeed blessed to have a man who loves me for the crazy,quirky person that I am.He doesn't recite love sonnets to me nor does he act all romantic like the ones you see in the chick flicks.The midnight tea that he makes for me and him,rubbing my back when I cough like crazy,cracking some joke when I am pissed off,the incessant pulling my leg is more than I can ask for.I love you R.Thankyou for making this day special for me.

Wishful thinking

** DISCLAIMER** I don't mean to offend anybody by this post.This is just, as my title suggests,wishful thinking.So please don't conspire against me.

So I have been thinking..What if the tables were turned?      

Let me indulge in some seriously unnecessary and time consuming thought.I was just wondering what if all the rules don't apply anymore??I am not making any sense,am I?
Okay, imagine a scenario wherein the people with gorgeous bodies are the biggest hoggers!The more you eat the the more skinnier you become!The world would be a whole different place then,won't it?

This thought was triggered by my paranoia of my increasing waistline.So cut me some slack yea?
So if you can roll with me in this one,lets imagine together,a world where the women who eat the most have the perfect hour glass figure and the men end up with perfect abs!!And the other section of the population who does not devour just about anything edible in their sight are unbelievably fat!!!The more you diet and work out the more obese you are!! Haaaa!! that would be hilarious! Just imagine,going through all the pain and sweat only to realize that you are just on the heavy side of the scale!! God!! that would be some cruel joke!
I mean,just think about it.All the calories,all the sugar..just building blocks to a great body!! **Huge sigh**

I could eat just about anything and still mange to have a great body! :P Hey wait,another thought just popped in my head.Even if the rules are all changed,I will still remain like this. :| I am not much of a hogger nor do I fast myself to death.I just eat the things I like,more or less like a crazy person.That leaves me somewhere in the middle right?Neither obese nor anorexic.. I would still be the okayish!! :(
That is so damn uncool! **pout**
Okay I have officially realized that this whole thing was a waste of time.No point wasting your energy turning tables!
I am major pissed at myself now!Goddd,me and my crazy brain!!!

What did you do in the holidays??

Since it was the holiday season here,I have been super lazy,adding on to it,R was having a break as well.So it was always,I cannot stress enough, late nights and reaallly late mornings.We had planned, to go downtown Chicago,cook awesome food,watch movies,and enjoy to the fullest.Well,almost nothing of that sort happened!! :|

First of all,R had this tooth ache which left him incapable of eating anything solid,so that left me cooking porridge or soup :| There were no doctors available and somehow we managed to get an emergency appointment to get him the medications.Now that the holidays are almost over,he's all okay now.How uncool is that??!!
The weather was not helpful one bit.It never snowed.It was always cloudy  and dark and what not.. So going to downtown Chicago never happened. We both ended up huddled in our home watching shows,movies&online shopping.He would sit in a couch and watch some war movie and I would sit in another couch and watch 'Bones' or read some blogs.Every now and then we both would take a break and talk animatedly like as though we just met!!We would have conversations and play poker till about 2-3am and then go to sleep tired.The next thing I know its 12 noon.Somehow we would drag us outside our bed and continue the cycle.

However,I have to hand it over to R.Even in the times of unbearable pain,R still managed to pull my leg,make me laugh and bug me!!On New Year's eve,R was feeling quite okay, so we I cooked beef biriyani inspired from Ria's collection. It turned out yummy!Don't believe me??Ask R.On new year,we went shopping in this horrid weather.Aren't we a strange couple?! :O The icy wind was blowing right on my face that I had tears streaming out of my eyes.I ain't complaining.I was way too happy to go out shopping.Which girl doesn't love shopping,huh?For me, the term shopping is applicable even for window shopping.All I need to do is to see stuffs.Well I wouldn't mind buying as well. ;)We watched a movie called 'Insidious',about which I'll write another post.If I am asked to describe the movie in one word,it would be hidious. Or on second thought I might not even do a review for it.Aahh what the heck!

Anyhoo,R has to be back at work from tomorrow.So no more late nights and late mornings afternoons. :(
No more being the laziest couple on planet earth.
I must say,it sure was fun!I sure will miss the holidays :c Until the next time...
