'Nail'ed it!" :D

Image
I was never a fan of painting my nails or even growing them. I had a recent week with LOOOOADSS of work and I had to see my nails grow long. I decided cutting them or biting them wasn't an option and once I did so, my fingers felt very weird for the next two days. I filed them neat for the first time and painted them with J's polish. Looked nice and I'm happy I haven't taken it off yet.

Very very weird thing to blog about, but BELIEVE ME - I consider it an achievement. My mom's gonna be so happy I won't bite my nails and my fingers look good too!

Flicky Bank!

It's that time of the morning when I decide to wake up and work. Unknown number calls and says "Madam we are issuing loan for your account - do u want?" Its like listening to a chaai waala ask you "Madam, do you want a vadai to go with your tea?"!
These sales calls have become so bad! I get atleast a minimum of three from these people!

Its a typical day at work when my I get an SMS with my Credit Card Balance. Regular readers can back me up here btw. 27 January 2009 I decide to cut my credit card and NEVER use it again. I checked my online account to see the 'statement' and I was SHOCKED to see 2 transactions on 16 February 2009. I'm just so glad i checked!!! My credit card was charged 2000/- bucks for an insurance policy which I didn't even know I had!!!

I called customer care and this is the answer they give. 'Madam, this is an insurance policy that you sign for over the phone. Also, you have been holding this policy for over a year and you …

Let's see how many agree and how many don't!

Spoilt Kids On The Block! Run For Your Lives!!!!

What's with these kids who come outta home for the first time?!?! What do they expect, Butterflies to wake them up from their sleep? ALL things have to go their way. And when problem strikes, its sulking all the way till one gets bored of it or till people get bored of giving one the attention. Spoiled to the core. Were you given the right to JUST say ANYTHING when you were born?!

Stop rubbing you sorry single lives on my face. Snap back to reality, learn to decide, GROW UP!!

I'm a happy person and I like it that way. DO NOT SULK IN FRONT OF ME. Grow up, break your crystal shell that has been tinted with sheer pampering and spilling of love and see the real world. Its different, its new and it sucks but you're gonna have to deal with it. Whether now, or sometime later!!!

Wish I could whack the senses and wake the living reality daylights out of these people!!

Political party? Or just a caste discrimination idea to prove one's dominance?

Sunday, the 15 of February was supposedly a HUGE deal in Kondunaad. Well, kongunaad comprises of all those places where 'Gounders' are prominent. A political party has been formed to help these areas overcome some problems the textile industry has been facing for a long time. The objectives and action plans of this 'party' are great!

Districts of Coimbatore, Tirupur, the Nilgiris, Erode, Salem, Karur, Namakkal, Krishnagiri, Dharmapuri and Dindigul have been facing a lot of trouble with electricity, allowances for textile industries etc. This party's main goal is to solve the problems that children of these caste members face at colleges due to seat reservation. Members of this caste are segregated as BC - Backward Class and the posts of judges and vice-chancellors are never given to them per Govt lines. (Not like it works that way either!)

This party was officially launched on Sunday and had a minimum crowd of 8 lakh people and sources say they had an easy collecti…

Scrabble evening with Upsie! :D

Upsie and I know to spell Who*e! :D :D

Sleepy morning.. crazy night!

Things to avoid at a sales conference :

1)Sit behind a tall person - What's the point if you came all the way and got to hear only voices echo from 3 different speakers and a huge head with different colors is hiding your view!?

2) Forget lip balm - One of the most important things for me on ANY day.

3) Carrying a bag - Never carry a bag. Go empty handed and empty headed.

4) Forget chewing gum - a long while of silence and AC makes u wanna chew gum. So carry gum.

5) Forget a shawl - Novotel has AC blowers right above your head, so ALWAYS carry a shawl. No bag, but shawl.

6) Sit behind people with turbans - If you think changing places is ok after the first session, choose a place with no Sardar in front of you. Turbans are also equal to tall people you know.

25 random things about me

I was as usual taking my day's break by stalking people on Facebook and I came across two people's posts - 25 random things about me. I decided to list mine too. So here goes... 25 things about Pragi

1) I'm Pragathambal - though I mostly say I don't like my name - I love it! I like being called Pragi.

2) I've grown my hair to various lengths according to my mom's wishes and now I wish I hadn't.

3) I have lived away from home for most of my life and I love the independence I have. I'm never homesick, I hate that!

4) To me the most important thing is staying happy, and I try to always.

5) I love spending time with my grandparents when they are not talking about my salary or my food habits.

6) Talking of food habits, I eat a lot when I like the food. If not I waste. I've tried my best to stop wasting and I'm getting close to succeeding.

7) Over these years of school and college / friends and family - I've lost my temper and become overly patient w…

How painful a 'NO' from an unknown person can be!

I somehow choose my team meetings to blog. That's when all my thoughts keep coming on the black frame under my sleepy eyes.

Two days back I was at the US consulate building for my interview. My family is traveling to the US in July for a Lions Club conference. My dad had been going through the forms and documents for over a month. It so happened that I went home 2 days before this interview day. My dad would open these papers and cross check with the checklist form the travel agent every night. I was also asked to bring my bank documents which i didn't want my parents to see. So many papers and soooo much tension. I always thought what the deal was. But it is!

My brother is completing his 12th std this year and we were all doubtful whether his would get through. Mine was not a problem as I had a letter from my company and I was pretty confident.

When we were in the line my mother and I saw a girl weeping outside the building. Probably a rejection... It was really sad to see her…
