Not in the Mood!

Dont oversleep ever!

Jaan came back from work yesterday and we decided to go to the fish market where we bought crabs and fish eggs and then went into a supermarket and shopped and ate outside and came home and slept.It was around 3:15am and I decided not to watch the rest of Ace Ventura - When nature calls,so as to not to destruct my sleep cycle.

I sleep for 7 hours but for some reason jaan made some noise in the morning when going to work and I couldnt sleep after that.I had around 4nhalf hours of sleep.Didnt matter,got up and had breakfast and did all my usual house work.

Then come tution time,it was time to read Kuwait social studies lesson.Oh my Gosh! It was so damn boring that I thought I would fall asleep right in the middle of listening him read it.As soon as he left,I lay down on my bed and didnt even realise I had slept for 2nhalf hours.Jaan never lets me sleep coz I usually get into this annoying episodes if I happen to sleep in the middle of the day.Do you know I havent slept a single day duri…

Weekend gayi bhadd mein....

I look forward to weekends the whole week and what happens! My hubby goes to work . I wanted to shoot him right between the eyes but who's gonna spoil me rot if he went Poof!

Yesterday,like the many other days,it was too hot to leave the house in the afternoon.We finally left in the evening to the shopping center and must tell you.Never take your husband shopping with you.It was a nightmare.I lovvve doing window shopping at my own pace and then I pop into stores and rummage through stuff and finally may happen to buy something.

Now now....I don't shop for hours on end unless I'm so happy.I'm thrifty by nature so I look at stuff really well for quality and buy.I'm not one of those people who looks at a label and buys it just because its branded.A smart person knows otherwise.Anyways,labels are for those who have too much cash and esteem problems.You can look in a pair of 10 dollar jeans or 100 dollar jeans.As long as they are good quality and you feel good in them.Y…

Mermaid or Whale !

I received this email again yesterday and I thought it was a real nice one,many of us real women would appreciate.I have never been waif like in my adult life.I have always been overweight or just about right or obese.I envy people who are naturally slim or thin,but when someone goes way overboard to lose weight to show off a skeletal frame,nah! I don't consider skinny beautiful.There should be something to hold onto as I hear many men say.There is so much of us to love:>.


Recently, in a large French city, a poster featuring a young, thin and tanned woman appeared in the window of a gym.


It said: "THIS SUMMER DO YOU WANT TO BE A MERMAID OR A WHALE?"

A middle aged woman, whose physical characteristics did not match those of the woman on the poster, responded publicly to the question pose d by the gym.

To Whom It May Concern:

Whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, sea lions, curious humans). They have an active sex life, they get pregnant and have adorab…

Simple and Real friends.....

A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest. A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself and doesn't feel even the least bit weird shutting your 'beer/Pepsi drawer' with her foot!
A simple friend has never seen you cry. A real friend shoulder is soggy from your tears..


A simple friend doesn't know your parents' first names. A real friend has their phone numbers in his address book..


A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party. A real friend comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you clean.
A simple friend hates it when you call after they've gone to bed. A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.
A simple friend seeks to talk with you about your problems. A real friend seeks to help you with your problems.
A simple friend wonders about your romantic history. A real friend could blackmail you with it!
A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an argument. A real friend calls you after you had a fight.
A si…

wannabe poet...

My heart shuddered the first time,
I went breathless for a second,
My skin tingled at the very touch,
My lips trembled,
And my feet didn't feel the ground underneath!
My mind went undecided..
Was it or was it not !
I wouldn't look up
The pounding of my heart so intense
Made me blush..
Every breeze against my body felt
like a warm caress on a cold night,
I could hear angels on their harp
And all the world was greener and cheery
It was like sorrow would befall no more
and then I knew something had changed;
The world would not be the same anymore
Yes ! I had fallen in love..
and it was the best beginning
of a wonderful chapter of my life.

Basic Foundation !

Growing up,I already had pre-formed ideas of what life was supposed to be.Now I thought when I grew as tall as my mom,I would stop studying and life would easy.It would mean going out everyday in the morning and coming back home in the evening.Eating and bathing and laughing and having fun.I envied the fact that my parents didnt have to cram their books up,prepare for exams,got to wear color clothes and got to watch as much Tv as they liked.I would always think,let me just turn 13 and then i would be a full fledged adult.Why 13? Coz my mom happened to talk about being a teen meant being over 13.Of course I had to wait for another 6 years.




At first my mom said,at least learn to go on your own to the loo without her,then you will be a big girl.Though I hated the fact that I had to clean myself up,I passed with not that much flying colors.Then one day my mom said,if you could fry one egg and make your own toast,you would be a big girl.After scorching many pans in secrecy and breaking egg…

We Women!

useless blog entry - 1

My first tamil film was the movie "KADALAN".Prabhu deva and Nagma starrer love story.I loved the songs,the dances,love scenes,etc.I had never fallen in love upto that moment.I was young, 17 years old and that movie was like the ideal storyline of my would be love life.I had been to that movie in some Udupi theatre with a girlfriend and some friends.

Suddenly Im feeling sleepy.My back hurts.Took a cold shower and sat right in front of the fan,now my body is aching.

Please someone sponsor me a spa treatment for the weekend.Wrap me in some hot seed weed crap,let me sit inside a mud pool,let someone massage me to sleep,etc.I wonder how it will go? Im so ticklish,you place one finger on my arm and i start rolling around laughing uncontrollably.

Outward beauty !

I was wearing my dental clips yesterday night and since they have wires protruding out a bit,I tend to get a pout.It then got me thinking about this topic today.

From where did this fashion of pouty lips begin? Babies breastfeeding or bottle feeding usually have a pouty mouth because of the suckling fashion,how can it be a fashion statement ! I see women filling their lips with fat,some go too far ahead and literally have their upper lip sticking out.This woman who gave birth to octopulets in the US,don't remember her name,she has the strangest mouth ever.It seems very clear that she had that flapper altered by surgery.The cosmetic surgeons always tell on shows,that they have patients coming into the clinics and asking for a Lopez Ass,Angelina mouth,breast augmentations and enlargements,liposuction,lifts of all kinds for all body parts,toe shortenings,ear pinning,you can even have permanent makeup done on your face,namely tattooed eyebrows or lip color or eye liners,etc.

On one hand…

Im was wet !

I just didn't know what to cook anymore yesterday,so I told my hubby I would make him healthy sandwiches for lunch and cook something for dinner.Our a/c hasn't been cooling as such and when you live in a tiny apartment in these hot summers,you literally tend to feel cooked if you have to do chores as well.

The repairmen didn't show up at all,I waited for them the whole day.We had sandwiches,my hubby left for work,I took a shower coz I was feeling all sticky and then the kids dropped by.Once that was over,I had tea and decided to buy some fresh chicken and cook dinner.

In the middle of all that chopping,grinding,peeling onions and garlic,cleaning the chicken,stirring the pot and adding masalas,I could feel my body drowning in my own sweat.I kept a table fan nearby but it wasn't giving any relief.I was so pissed off at that time.I wanted to bang the fan against the wall,I wanted to beat someone black and blue.My hair soaked,then my undies,then my clothes,The sweat was po…

A Memory

I had finished drinking my usual 4pm tea with rusk.I kept the glass in the sink and decided to go out for a stroll.As I walked towards the beach on this narrow raised pathway,I looked up.There were coconut trees everywhere,all of them as tall as a 4 storey building.As the leaves danced along with the salty breeze,I kept wondering how lucky I was to be able to enjoy these dancing trees,this lightly flavoured breeze,the coolness of the sand and mud beneath my feet,the way the breeze brushed against my skin.The Sun was going to set within the hour and like all other days I had to see this unique sunset amidst white fluffy clouds.The rays sometimes just burst through the cracks or tears of the cloud and it would be like God was playing peek a boo with me.

As I reach the shore,I see the river so smooth and getting ready to rest.She was hot the whole day and tired beacuse children played with her,women washed clothes in her,men were fishing in her,boats were being rowed over her,She was tir…

few khyals before cooking lunch !

The week has already started and its going to be a long one.The kids have started their first unit exams and there so much to study and so little time.I actually pity the kids though I did the same thing back then.The thing I dont remember doing it.I never took tutions in my life for anything and kids today begin their day with school,end it with tutions and hardly get a breather.Are kids gettting dumb or were we too smart back then.:>

I will be on my way to cook sheep liver and heart.We cook it very rarely but its tastes great.I have egg whites all over my face,its dried now.They say its good for the skin,sort of like a nutritional pack for the skin.

Im just waiitng for this month to end,it will be a great relief not having to meet deadlines with these kids.One of them has to learn about northern mountain areas in areas in India.There are so many names an spellings to make him learn.He just received the notes 2 days back,then theres K.S.S. ,which I have not been able to cover sinc…

An insight into the gluttony of the mad king

{ This is for Zubie : I was experimenting with the templates and yes,when Im bored I change them.}


I found this article very unappetising but very interesting indeed.I had to share it with you guys.An insight into the gluttony of the mad king .

Henry VIII, who ruled England from 1509 until his death in 1547, was known for his voracious appetite. Portraits of Henry show a man almost as wide as he was tall. When he wasn't marrying, divorcing, or beheading his wives (he was on his sixth marriage when he died at age 58), this medieval ruler dined like a glutton.


He enjoyed banquets so much that he extended the kitchen of Hampton Court Palace to fill 55 rooms. The 200 members of the kitchen staff provided meals of up to 14 courses for the 600 people in the king's court. Here are some dishes served at a typical feast.

1. Spit-Roasted Meat : Spit-roasted meat -- usually a pig or boar -- was eaten at every meal. It was an expression of extreme wealth because only the rich could affo…

ENNUI !

I finally got the ratio of milk to rice for my rice pudding.Made a less sweet version of it and decided to eat that for lunch.Now my teeth feel all sweet.Not used to eating sweets that much anymore,so I know when Im high on sugar or fats.After eating KFC,which is rarely (once or twice a year) I usually can feel my cholesterol rising.I can feel grease line my insides but I love fried chicken and little binge once in a while hopefully doesnt cause all that harm.

Today I have promised my husband to make pakodas for him namely brinjal and cauliflower pakodas.Just adding the masalas and coating them with gram flour and deep frying them.I thought he too needs a break from all thats healthy and wise and makes everything look nice.

He's at work today too so Im all alone and dont know what to do.Im dreaming of how Im gonna go in a radical change of hair color and streaks,Im thinking of buying something real nice for myself with my tution money at the end of this month.How my husband requir…

My first kiss... and a little bit of WWE

I was watching the trailors of "Dear John" and they show this kiss that Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum share,Oh How I miss that first kiss or one of the first kisses when all is fresh,new,filled with hopes and dreams and the possibility of finding true love.

I do kiss my hubby now and then...but they are kisses of welcome home sweety or am proud of you darling or just missed you a lot today kisses.They are true kisses too but they dont bring that tingly feeling or that knotty feeling in your tummy anymore.You know they are yours forvever so they hold that magic once in a blue moon.

Ahh....when you're heart races,you have goosebumps all over,you close your eyes tight.When I saw the actors kissing...I just wanted to have that new feeling too.

Now with WWE in the background ,all that romantic feeling is drifting away.Yes ! Im a wrestling fanatic.I know most of it is drama but I lovvvvvvvve it.Im looking forward to watching the match between Shamus and Randy Orton.

Temporary disturbing feelings

For many days I have been wondering about this subject but it seemed just too sensitive to put it out there.My folks retired recently and will be leaving this country soon and that will the end of it.I havent spoken or seen my parents in 8+ years.They dont want to either.Thats the price I had to pay for marrying someone they didnt,dont and will never approve of.One moment I was the heart and soul.It was like beheading someone.Once the head is gone,life in that body just ceases to exist.


I have always had a soft spot for children even when I was a tiny kid myself.I dont remember my sis that much but my brother I do.I was 4-5 yrs old,I fed them,sang them songs,spoke to them,put them to sleep and stared at them for hours.As I grew older,my admiration for babies didnt end.My cousins would usually tease me saying that people who love babies so much,never tend to have their own.To which I would reply,no way....if I couldnt be a mom in the future I would kill myself.Coz if nothing else,mom i…

Sex : F

A mother is driving her little girl to her friend's house for a play date.


' Mommy ,' the little girl asks, 'how old are you?'

'Honey, you are not supposed to ask a lady her age,' the mother replied.

'It's not polite.'

'OK', the little girl says,

'How much do you weigh?'

'Now really,' the mother says,

'those are personal questions and are really none of your business.'

Undaunted, the little girl asks, 'Why did you and Daddy get a divorce?'

'That's enough questions, young lady! Honestly!'

The exasperated mother walks away as the two friends begin to play.

' My Mom won't tell me anything about her,' the little girl says to her

friend.

'Well,' says the friend,

'all you need to do is look at her driver's license.

It's like a report card, it has everything on it.'

Later that night the little girl says to her mother,

'I know how old you are. Yo…

Thoughts after a teeny break...

Almost a week had gone by,I didnt bother to renew my internet services so I could blog,farm or anything.I have been quite busy for the past few days and the first thing I did was check my emails and read any updated blogs.

Oh I had no idle pursuits to carry on with, just plain tiring housework.I like to feel drained at the end of the day,gives me a sense of having lived and not wasted precious breaths doing nothing.No Im not accusing anyone,its like Im assuring myself that I have served a purpose for the day.This way,I dont get lazy and try to keep fit by doing things and being constantly on the move.

I have been catching up on movies.Of course they are all gone off the charts but I try to make time to watch a movie at a stretch.Im usually bits.I watched Ninja assassins and was stupified at all the blood gushing from the neck,thighs and heart.It was all gore alright but the fight sequences,my gosh,those men can really fight.Imagine the discipline,the strength and the practice that goe…

Just for smiles !

Do we really want this !

Day out yesterday!

Many people dont seem to have the time to stop.Everyone is running around to catch upto something.And if you're a working man,well,its a race from morning till night,meeting deadlines,coming home to kids and families,fulfilling office needs and home needs.

I have always loved looking at people.It may seem odd but actually you get to learn so much.You dont become an observant person sitting on your ass.You need to work on it.My favourite subjects are children.They are so uninhibited and not so aware.So they behave the way they always do.No pretentions there.

After that,its teenagers.Teenagers are too into themselves to be aware of their surroundings.Its their outfits and boys that they worry. and vice versa.
Moms make an interesting subjects too especially if they are with kids,babies and toddlers.

Then come men and women.If they are working they seem different and if they are free from all shackles,they are different.But they are boring to me coz studying them requires lots of eff…

Experiences !

We learn some of the best lessons in life in sometimes horrible ways.I dont remember any of it being funny at the time.I usually remember having a feeling of great regret and I guess when you have this feeling overcome your senses you know an experience has been born.

We try never to commit a mistake like that again.Sometimes we think of doing something and someone interjects you not to do it,you tend to think real hard.But then you soemtimes end up doing it thinking it doesnt have to be the same ending for everyone.

I have done my share of major mistakes which Im not proud of but have learnt to put it behind me.But with age I have learnt to judge situations beforehand,before i get them dirty.:> Sometimes Its a good call but sometimes with other people interfering it doesnt work out.

I remember I had been to a bachelorette party with a couple of girlfriends once.I didnt know what tequilla was back then and my girlfriend and I ended up having 4 straight shots and surprise...we passe…

Friday

I finally got a chance yesterday to catch up with my girlfriends.It was fun.We ate,sat together and talked.The kids were so excited coz they knew that a get together like this meant going out.The men knew that this meant they would be losing a couple of greenery from their pocket.


We went out shopping.Nothing fancy ,we bought some accessories and then I bought something to go with my jeans.But its not just the stuff part..its actually the endless giggling ,whispering into one another's ears,discussing if some was worth buying or not,whether it will look good or not,endless yelling at kids to not stray away from us,the looks our husbands give when we buy something wondering whether she will really wear this or just throw it away into her cupboard,etc.

My hubby rarely accompanies me when I shop even though among all my girlfriends Im the one who takes the least time to shop for something.I know what I want and I go to buy just that.I shock my husband when Im done shopping in half an…
