On my ears now...

Lately I've been listening only to one song while I work. A song from Vaaranam Ayiram (a Surya starrer) :D - Mundhinam Paartheney...

I love the lyrics
"Thula thottil unnai vaithu nigar seyya ponnai vaithai.. thula baaram thorkadho peralagey"

SO in love with this song! My VLC Crashed after 3 days!! I'm still listening to it! :P

PETA.

Are you veg or non-veg?! I usually proudly say - Pure Non Veg. Yeah, I eat meat.

I watched THE most disturbing video ever today on www.peta.com. The video made me cry for a while. How humans can be so brutal and heartless! (Well, who am I to talk - Pure non-veg!)

Totally disturbed. Maybe I should consider becoming a vegetarian.

Another Saturday night with nothing to do!

Yes, I'm still complaining! Not tonight though... Today turned out to be great.. nah... greater than all the other boring weekends in Hyd!

What I did : nothing. Hee :D What I actually did the whole day : Woke, got the maid to do all the cleaning, called for lunch, watched FRIENDS, and lazed the afternoon to evening and then night. Me being me. Alone, bored, but happy. Hee :D

Last night turned out to be such a memorable night. I laughed and laughed with a few friends over a conference call about my dream. I told the friend of mine about my dream. We laughed it out like crazy and this conference call can keep me going for weeks. we chatted and chatted. The boys were making plans to go to Dubai. This was when I was sad. I cannot go with them cause I'm the only girl. The guys even gave me ideas of how I can convince my dad and just go to Dubai. It was very sweet of them. But I'm dead sure dad's not gonna let me... and that's because I'm not gonna ask him. To be the one who initiated the trip plans, I sure am gonna miss it if it happens. I wish it does, I don't have any nice pictures of these guys together - infact noone has pictures of these guys together.

God bless Google for their phones, I can conference with friends abroad as well. And these calls make me feel really happy. Even if the other 2 people are talking something as boring as business. Yeah, business talk bugs me. Specially when I have no idea about the field. I just realised that if it were my girlfriends who were talking about the latest nail color - I would not know that either. What would I know?! Now, that's a thinker.

My TV time : I have been away from TV for about 3 weeks, actually ever since my room mate refused to let me watch something I wanted to and rudely claimed it to be her TV. I've been giving her this cold treatment and I don't give that treatment to anyone but people who really need to see that side of me. She's outta town this weekend. I've been watching it for maybe an hour now. So pissed. Headlines today, NDTV, and every damn news channel is reporting that Amitabh Bachan is admitted with hernia on his 66th birthday. Well, I think its time's way of telling him : Get some rest bugger, let other people start making money too. What's with this family 'The Bachans,' and the news. The lord of the house has hernia and its news... the lady of the house likes SRK better than Aamir and its news... the bachu cannot control the bahu in Bangkok during an award function and its news... the bahu is spotted in London shopping in a mall and its news! Isn't it what people wanna see the only day they have time to watch TV and get parallel with what's happening in the world! Utter madness! Well, who cares if his hernia is easy to operate or not - there are kids who need basic vaccination. Cover them, not a 66 year old guy who owns an island in dubai, 150 windmills in UP and has the world's most beautiful bahu and a stupid son who chose to stay the house dog forever!

Abhishek and John are acting like a gay couple in a movie : Cant wait!

Maanada Mayilada : Another reality show that has been going on for about a year noe. I remember watching it for the first time voluntarily cause one of the choreographers I had met once was performing. This show is something my mom once watched and forgot to call my lil brother in boarding school. Good show : if not for their (including the judges) costumes weren't like lit up Christmas trees.

I'm sitting with a box of ice cream which I paid 320 bucks for right now. Its my usual Sunday routine - laze the whole day and do nothing and just when it gets dark feel like having ice cream. Be lazy to go out and order home for the minimum amount 300 :)

The most recent worry in my life is that my Picasa online photo storage limit is over. And so is my blogger storage. I'm beginning to use vpragi@gmail.com instead of pragiv@gmail.com - yeah, i have both! :)

Now to get on with work, let me get to forwarding emails to the right queues. Will be back with more boredom and something beautiful.

@ work and guys!

This has been in my head for over a year now. Men @ work : URGH! After having lived in a residential school where boys are fed chivalry and manners, the guys in my office turn out to be men with nothing. They yawn without closing their mouths : gosh, I don't wanna count your cavity and fillings nor do I wanna breathe around there for the next one minute. They chew with their mouths open, alk with food in their mouth : euuw. Like Phoebe says in FRIENDS : I asked for news, not the weather! Seriosly!

With everyone who has a personal side of themselves, a secretive side. Shush side of everyone. I dunno why it bothers me so much when guys @ work download and watch porn in office. I mean, how desperate can u be?! In office?! Do what you want, use a privacy screen for gods sake.

I'm someone who cannot take foul language. Never. The F word when unnecessary can piss me off. Language in office can get disgusting, so disgusting I can slap someone. Urgh! Wish I could. Learn some normal language man. I'm sure your mom or sis or anybody from family or the surrounding u grew in would not appreciate this. Is this your attempt of trying to be 'cool.' If yes, good. But URGH!

More complaints on this subject : bad breath, body odour, hygiene, peeking into others screens (specially when they are chatting), smell of smoke after a smoke (yeah, its normal but PHHHULEASSEE), comment on other girls in lewd language.

Well, this is my attempt not to correct guys. Just REALLY taken aback with how guys can be so not bothered about themselves.

Wish my dream comes true...

I had the weirdest of dreams 2 days back. I hear early morning dreams come true, I soo wish this does. Its one of the things that I've been thinking about over and over again. What happens once a girl gets married? Loses all the touch with her friends... all go their way. I so don't want anything of that sort to happen to me. I would feel soo guilty on my death bed! My friends so deserve me!

Well the dream went this way... Cindy a friend of mine (I can tell her about anything under the sun!) Yea that meant, most of my girl talk! I dream that Cindy and I go shopping in Coimbatore. We 2 friends are married to 2 friends and we get to be together forever and forever. That means we can discuss just about anything at any point of time in life.

I had the best laugh with her when I told her this. We laughed over it on conference and everything but when I ended up I was flooded with emotions === pray my dream should come true.

A girl should always have her Besst pal! The one who can be there for you just about anytime! The one who's ego does not live when u r around, the one who she can discuss anything under the sun! The one BEST friend for life!

P.S : My tooth fairy : If you are reading this, plss phullleasseee grant me this one wish for all the teeth I saved under my pillow!

Just another evening...


A shop that sold bags in Shilparaman. Literally, THE most colorful shop there.




P.S : I just realised why these days my sentences finish with a full stop. there used to be days when I had a ! after every sentence. Maybe after a whole year of living with literally with a comp you tend to lose the happiness in saying something.

The thing called boredom.

I understood why weekends were such a bore for me. Its been more than a year now and I still haven't found the person called Friend in Hyd. Or maybe I'm just very blessed with thoughts of my friends from high school and college that I cannot accept anybody. I don't accept anybody and then I complain.

Ques : How do you like hyd?
Ans : Hyd's boring.

My answer hasn't changed for a year and more now. It's just in my head that Hyd is boring, there are not enough places to go and eat, its not safe and finally Who will I go with? There are just two options. I think of Rashi and Jeanette. Both my ex-roommate and present roommate. The other times I go, I go alone. Somehow I'm in luv with shopping alone for myself. No second opinions, no interepted opinions.

I'm right now sick and tired of Rajdhani which gives the best overpriced Rajasthani food. Jeannette and I end up there when we wake late of weekends and are too lazy to cook. I'm also sick of pizza. Every other day I call for pizza and have a worthy meal of 90 bucks.

Why is there no place I can walk into with someone like Shilpa or Saranya and talk nothing but worthless crap and sit there for hours?! Simple, cause there is no Shilpa or Saranya around.

Being sick of most of the things I decided to get a haircut. My decisions are mostly instant. Thought of, decided and done. Like immediately. I paid a good amount and cut it short. Which means pay a lot and also get my mom to yell at me. :D Quite ok with the haircut.

Thursday being holiday for Dussera, I decided to treat myself to sleep till 11. I did. Woke and felt lazy so ordered pizza as soon as I opened my eyes. I brushed and was ready for brunch - pizza. Went back into my sheets and with my laptop and FRIENDS I had my brunch. Now no worries for food till dinner. Cleaning, arranging, more cleaning was all I did during that day. By evening it was pouring outside and chances of me remotely going out to get grocery was ruined. Just then my roommate said she is leaving outta town that night. That meant Home Alone for 3 days. Urgh!

My realtionship with my high schools friends has only been over the phone. And yet I cant do without talking to them once in a while. And there are a few who i have to talk to everyday or I cant sleep. These guys mean so much and I cannot face the fact that things can change after a few years. I dont want it to, and thats the first time ive said that out loud. I've always wished for me to spend a few months with them in person. I know its never gonna happen cause if it had to it would have by now.

Facebook that was one thing I never opened for a loong time has become my main entertainment during work breaks. I wait for someone to add pictures or comment on any picture so i can smile. I realise how desperate I've become for some source of entertainment. Being online for almost the whole day has made me so dependant on the internet for anything. My source of contact has become Gtalk, FB and orkut. I've become a fast typist and an active social networking person. How sad is that. This being the case, I've lost touch with talking. Talking - the only thing I used to do before. So to keep up with my skills I call 'A friend every Tday.' A Tuesday and a Thursday. A friend I havent called for a long time. A friend who I've avoided calling to watch FRIENDS which is stored on my laptop. My T day plans are the best. It makes me smile for doing a nice thing and I'm sure it keeps the friend thinking I remember.

No amount of Skype, or Gtalk, or Yahoo mssgr, or FB can gime what I actually want. Not only me, anyone.

Those hot chennai afternoon when we all dress to eat the favs, those sultry nights where we all tuck in one room to play pictionary, those hungry days when we ordered the Huge amounts of food, those obvious birthday plans and gifts, those last minute runs to get some frankies to avoid the minimum order amount, those rushes to get the 10 rs tickets @ Sathyam when we are absolutely broke... Those days... Those were the best days of my life!

Beautiful quotes...

After all this time
I never thought we'd be here
Never thought we'd be here
When my love for you was blind
But I couldn't make you see it
Couldn't make you see it
That I loved you more than you'll ever know
A part of me died when I let you go.

When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

It's the dream, afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul, afraid of dying
That never learns to live

You're as welcome as cancer, but my door is always unlocked

My thoughts are free to go anywhere, but it's surprising how often they head in your direction.

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.

The most beautiful view is the one I share with you.

Where words fail, music speaks...

Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.

The arrogance of the artist is a very profound thing, and it fortifies you.

Sometimes it's so hard to see the good things passing by.

Everything, everything will be just fine,
Everything, everything will be alright.

Giving up doesn't always mean you are weak; sometimes it means that you are strong enough to let go.


That unspoken feeling, of knowing that right now is all that matters.

The only sure thing about luck is that it will change.
Taking joy in living is a woman's best cosmetic.

Happiness is not an ultimate destination, but instead lies in appreciation of the journey.

There's not a star in heaven that we can't reach.

Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.

In dreams we enter a world that's entirely our own.

Spring is nature's way of saying 'Let's party!'

When the world says "Give up",
Hope whispers "Try it one more time".

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.

Back to the grind

With the start of the academic year here, life is almost back to the grind. School is priority uno for both G boy and me. This year looks pr...
