"Honest"ly happy again!

I have been bestowed with the Honest Scrap Award for the second time and this time, by LazyKing. I am extremely thrilled and honored to receive this award. His blog is incredible, interesting, funny and always makes me want to smile! Here's to you!

Now according to the rules, I guess I have to state 10 honest things about me. So here I go...

1. I'm extremely short for my age. I can easily pass for a 14 year old (Alright.....12 year old!) .
2. I detest tomatoes and green peas.
3. My cell phone is an extension of my body.
4. I talk to my cat. Sometimes i explain stuff to him when I'm studying. (Poor thing even listens to me like he understands!)
5. My wardrobe has a picture of Edward Cullen on it!
6. My attention span in a lecture is hardly 30 minutes. I drift away after that.
7. I feel thirsty at 3.30 am in the morning and hence I can find my way to the kitchen with my eyes closed!
8. I'm a shopaholic! I tend to buy stuff for myself when I accompany someone for shopping.
9. I tend to lose my hair clips almost everyday!
10. I am very sarcastic at times and may have hurt people without meaning to. :(

Now, I bestow this award to 7 more bloggers who are very interesting (although i feel all of you'll deserve it.....anyways, sticking to the rules)! Check them out!

Wanna Break Free.....

All that I ask for,
Is a few minutes to breathe,
Some time to myself,
Away from home,
People surround me,
They question what I think,
They reason my every move,
They wanna know everything.
Who am I talking to,
Why do I look outside,
What am I doing,
The questions never stop.
I feel like screaming,
But no one can hear,
Coz they fall for the fake smile I wear,
Whenever they are near,
Every minute gets more frustrating,
I feel like breaking free,
I long to spread my wings and fly,
To laugh, to just be me.

Holi shit…!!

Today, i want to warn or maybe remind all the so called civilized beings (indecent men) that Wednesday, 11th March 2009 is Holi and not the grand finale of National eve-teasing week! I am furious about the fact that women are especially targeted during Holi week. Just because you want to celebrate Holi one week in advance doesn’t mean that the women around you become walking-talking punching bags for your balloons!

Every nook and corner there are people waiting to attack. And its not only water that is filled in these balloons, they come various varieties with sewage water, mud, eggs, ink and a lot more sickening things. And it seems Holi gives men--young, old --a free pass to maul women. Spread the joy, spread the colour (go grab away!)

I’m sick of all this. Why do we have to bear the brunt of everything? Even a few of my friends enjoy doing this! And I’m exasperated and disgusted that they do it in spite of knowing it’s extremely uncivilized. It’s not something to be incredibly proud of! What is the difference between you and the Ram Sena? Weren’t you‘ll the ones who stood up for women when the horrific incident took place in Mangalore? Was that all just an eye-wash? Do you think you’ll can get away with the wretched excuse of “Holi hai yaar!” (Its Holi). Do you really think it’s funny? Get a life, you pathetic souls!

Ladies, since I can't guarantee saviors or decent men (and believe me, there are very few of them) to save you in such circumstances, I highly recommend that you stay in your private shelters until this lunatic week passes by.

I’m relieved to see that this insanity will soon be over. Until then, stay safe! Have a “happy” Holi!

Am I really that bad???

Last week, I attended a birthday party at my cousin’s place. She had invited a large group of her school friends. The tiny terrors were creating a cacophony, running around the place, dropping juice everywhere and turning the house upside down, while I along with my elder cousin were cleaning up behind them (trust me, it wasn’t fun at all). **SIGH** Anyways, to keep them in one place I suggested that they play a game (organized game, more like it…..). My sister came up with a game where you have to act out a well known person and the others have to guess it. It was a lot of fun watching these kiddos imitating Shah Rukh Khan, Sachin Tendulkar, Ronaldo and stuff. After a while, they added a twist to the game. They started acting out each other, teasing and imitating each other’s mannerisms. Soon came my little sisters turn. She acted like a person on the cell phone talking to someone, saying “Hello! Hiee…supp??” and then saying “byee” and immediately texting someone else. Finally, attending another call and giggling. Everyone hooted, laughed and yelled unanimously….”PAVITRA!!” (And I went red…)

Saccharine disaster!!

Last evening, my friend got a major Rasgulla (an Indian sweet dish, tastes really yummy!) craving. After a lot of protesting, I finally decided to go with him to give him company. There is this place quite far from where I live where we get Rasgullas for 2 bucks each. And that too mammoth size ones!We reach the place in 10-15 minutes only to find that there were no Rasgullas left.

Anyway, to do justice to our trip to this place we ordered two Gulab Jamuns (another Indian sweet dish) and asked him to parcel it. Much to our surprise and disappointment, we were given a large bag filled with the sweet liquid and two microscopic Gulab Jamuns parceled for us. It looked as if we were taking a new baby gold-fish home! To avoid the embarrassment of travelling that far and coming back with two tiny Gulab Jamuns, we lied to our friends saying that we ate a few on our way! I swear I’ll never go back there again, how much ever my stomach craves for it!

Help Me...!!

I’m currently suffering from a writer’s block. I really can’t think of anything to write about…hope it goes away soon. From the past 3-4 days I have been opening and cancelling the new post link coz I’m really lost for words.
Well this is the best that I can come up with.

Weird stuff about me:
1) I cannot cross roads. I require someone with me to do so. Sometimes I wait for people to arrive so that I have company crossing.

2) I cannot argue with someone for peanuts. The best comeback I have is “Shut Up!” or "Get Lost"

3) I depend completely on my friends. Most of my decisions are made only after I ask my friends. I don’t know what I’ll do without them. (I seriously have to stop doing this so often).

4) I sometimes wake up at 2 a.m in the morning to listen to my brother sleep talk. Very interesting..(I have heard sleep talks about pokemon, bandits, dragons and simple plan!) I love doing this.

5) I love giving surprises. But most of my plans get foiled due to something or the other. I love the look of happiness and surprise on people’s face.

6) I can play Counter Strike better than most of the guys in my college. (well, the guys find it intimidating and the girls find it weird.)

7) I love sms-ing! There is not a single day when I don’t message someone. I feel my day is incomplete without it.

8) I sound like Elmer Fudd when I wake up from my sleep. It takes me half an hour to get my voice back.

Thats all! Hope I get over this block.
