Happy Holidays!

I don't really know how the new year is going to kick-start. With my third semester exams its going to feel no different (not like it would have made much otherwise!)

Now that I'm gonna be buried in my text books for New Years - here my 'To Do List' for the year 2009.

1) Save 5000 (or more) bucks every month for trip to US in June


3) Buy my brother his first phone for college

4) Make an honest effort to dress up for my sister's wedding

5) Go to Pondy with Saranya

6) Visit the Salarjung Museum in Hyderabad

7) Read 'Withering Heights' by Emily Bronte

8) Visit Disneyland in the US :D

9) Visit Dakshin Chitra in Chennai

10) Do one soap carving

11) Buy Hari 'not so expensive' but good shades

12) Buy Ma a very nice silk saree for sister's wedding

13) Learn to drive a car PROPERLY

14) Get my driving license and voters ID

16) ...............................................

... and the list will be updated! :D :D

Typical Team Metal Meeting

Satish, Ali, Lateef, Ambassador, Dhruv, Jay - Awake

Guni, Upsie, Kalpana, Spri - Stuck in the wrong place, cannot sleep

Neidhi, Rahul Raj, Smruthi, Mehak - Oh god now!

Pragi, Mahima, Arun - Who cares. Can't we just get done with this?!

I love to type so softly during meetings. I'm right now hiding behind Spriha's chair and sitting on the floor. Anirban is drawing something and just got done with a limerick. Mahima is playing with her hair. Arun left the room. And I'm typing this!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D

Cannot stop typing.. Nakul came up with something funny. 5 started laughing and the rest followed. Lol! It is so funny to watch Mahima wake up and look around! LOL!

This is crazy. Mahima is gonna sleep. Prajakta has aligned herself so Satish wont see Mahima. Snoooozzzz!!

This meeting seems to be never ending. We've now moved from the actual room we were in and occupied another room. Now most have chosen places to hide n type like me. hehe! So many look tired and sleepy. Most r closest to the door - maybe to run away asap.

Satish thinks...

Lateef thinks...

Nakul thinks...

Param does not know much but thinks...

Ed and Brian think...

Saloni has the INDIAN team's opinion...

Well, I think this meeting should end RIGHT NOW! Cause I've gotta pee.

I'm done. I'm not doing this once more. I'm gonna stick to this one and if there is a problem - I'm packing just once - to go home.

This house is cute compact and cozy! I love the way I can lie on the sofa once I reach home and just watch TV without having to adjust a cushion behind my back like the previous house. I like the way the maid just walks in knowing where her stuff is and starts cleaning and washing. I like the way the watchman is just more then OK to help us at ANYTIME. I like the way the cab comes only at 8:15 a.m. every morning (makes me wanna curl in my sheets even at 7:15) I like the way familiar faces are always there for a warm smile. I'm scared of that bully Mahima though (serial kisser!). Lol!

I hope I'm safe. I hope I don't have to do this all over once again. I hope things just go so well and I find a room mate soon. I hope things never churn green here.

I do not like the noisy people and the crying kittens. I do not like the wake up call from the mosque - but I have no say in any of these. So I'm adjusting still - I'm sure there is no such thing as real estate heaven. But if there is in HYD - please write to pragiv@gmail.com - PHULEASE!

A happy end!

Mehak all of a sudden asked me if I wanted to put Mehendi - and Yes, i did! We went to Shilparamam for a crazy 300 bucks (both of us!) and got this done! :D

Somehow my hands smell very eeeuuuwww after I got this done.. meaning weird smell! BUT who cares - some lotion and it goes... I love the dark red that it's become! :D

I did this cause it was my sisters 'Almost Engagement' yesterday! Congratsss Laal akkkaa!! Love you and wishing you only happiness in life! :D

P.S : Don't stay in the US forever. :D

Looking for a roomie.

And now i have to share my room. If anybody but me is even reading this - help me find a roomie.

Shifting again.


Anymore bad words? Please use all the fowl language instead of me saying them. Damn. Perverted landlords in Hyd. I'm so sick of men. Seriously. That much of anger!! I hate these people!

Well.. breathe in breathe out!! PHoooff!

I'm shifting houses again. Why? 1) My landlord is a horny pervert. 2) Rent is too high for my pay. Why not before? 1) Had no time 2) No money either (And am one of those who cannot take money from parents)

I'm so pissed. I've logged into Gtalk and I cannot see Budhu. No Hari. Padhu is not 'On His Blackberry' UURRRGHHH!!

What's with men? Seriously? A hint of a (^@*@ and why do they have a to become so disgusting?! Men - URRGGGHH!!

Why r there 2 sides to a coin?!!? Can't there just be one?! Why is it that exactly the day after my landlord behaves stupid - the HR person from office becomes so sweet and helps in every possible way? Thank god for the HR person - my opinion of men changed.

Tuesday is a holiday from work for Id. I'm gonna be shifting on a week holiday. URRGHH!! Instead I could just wake up late, walk in somewhere for Brunch in my capris, get back home, sleep my evening away, stay awake and watch a movie, order a pizza for dinner, sleep again and wake next day cursing the alarms. So pissed. Thank god for blogs. Thank god for empty flats in Nirmal's building. Thank god for HR people. Thank god for all those patient friends who listened to the sick story. Thank god for strong keypads on IBM laptops!!!

KILL GOD FOR MEN LIKE MY PREVIOUS AND PRESENT LANDLORDS. If u r family and if u r reading this - please do not tell my parents. Infact, don't tell my parents. SHUSH!!
