Guess Who's Back

Guess Who's Back
Back Again
Sonia's Back
With her Blog
Guess Who's Back, Guess Who's Back, Guess Who's Back!!!


Hey ppls... How u been? I know I know I have neglected my blog and the blogging world for months. I had a lot of people emailing me asking whether I have disappeared from the face of the earth and a certain person threating me to update my blog otherwise she'll hunt me down.  

First of all, I'm touched by all the concern, love and anger for my blog. :) 


Secondly, I have shifted base from South India all the way to the capital of India, well not exactly the capital, you can say very close proximity to it. Its Gurgaon. I was super super excited cuz when I read up about the place I found that they have the largest number of malls in India, close to 40 I think. How cool is that? It was like I was being called back to the mother ship. :)


All my weekends were taken care of just by visiting one mall per day. :x PR wasn't looking forward to the retail overdose…

An Auto Ride

Image
The other day I left work early, took a metro train, got down at the nearest station to home.


I could have walked home from there but me being the lazy bum decided to take an auto. I got into an auto where initially the driver wanted to charge me 40 bucks for a 10 buck ride. I bargained. He cribbed. Finally brought it down to 20 bucks.


Half way through the ride, he suddenly stops the vehicle, gets out to pick up something from the middle of the road.


He comes up to me with something that looks like a bunch of TNT sticks. I kid you not!!


AD(Auto Driver):‘Madam, I think it’s a bomb!!’
ME (in my mind): ‘Why the freaking beeeep are you bringing it to me you psycho!?’
ME: Please keep it away from me, whatever the hell it is.


AD starts to prod and pluck on the contraption.


I start to hyperventilate. I calm myself by thinking of shoes especially Jimmy Choos. Then I realize I might die right now and would never own a pair of Jimmy Choos ever in my life. I start to hyperventilate again.


AD: Who do …

Another ‘Un-Eventful’ Start to my Day

6:50 AM – Alarm rings
ME: Sigh!!! Babbby I don’t want to go to work!!
PR: Mumbles grumbles and turns to the other side


6:55 AM


ME: PR is Godzilla a dinosaur ?


PR: Godzilla is a mutant reptile.


ME: Oh ok. I think he’s on the next street.


PR: If you don’t want to go to work don’t go but you can’t use Godzilla as a reason.


ME: Sigh!! (whining like a child) Why not?

7:00 AM


PR gets an SMS which says


' Calmness is not a weakness but strength. Be calm! '

PR: Someone beep beep beep sends me an SMS at 7 Beep AM, wakes me up to tell me to be calm. Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!!!
ME: :D
7:05 AM
ME: I had a weird dream
PR: mumbles gibberish
ME: I was married to A ( A was this mutual friend of ours who had a crush on me and vice versa. PR just about tolerated A. ) We were on a boat. A couple of friends including you were also there.


PR: Hmmmm..
ME: Then there was this 30 foot wave, like a tsunami, came crashing on our boat. After it hit instead of searching for A, I went searching for you. I held on to y…

TV Show Addict

Image
I have been meaning to write about my Pondy trip and about the goodies that I bought or got recently but I have been addicted to watching TV shows.
It all started with Scrubs. I’m totally in love with that show. Turk & Carla sometimes remind me of PR & moi. My favorite character is Dr Perry Cox. He is HILARIOUS. This is the only tv show that PR & I watch together. We are on Season 7 now.
I got Ten Things I Hate About you. I loved the movie and thought the series would be equally funny. I watched it and realized that I’m no longer a teenager and the show does not appeal to me. I still ended up watching the entire season.
Then I moved on to Glee – another teenage musical series. I don’t care much for the series as such but I loved their renditions of some of the songs. My top favs are Rehab and Golddigger. In fact I like them better than the original.


I got hooked on to Desperate Housewives. I know I know what you guys are thinking of me. You have stooped too low. I enjoyed the…

Choco - La

Image
I went to Pondicherry, the quaint little french colony for Easter holiday(it cant be called a holiday when its only 3 days but I had a superb time)
Belated Easter Wishes Ppls!!
Another post will be coming up shortly about the trip but I had to had to spread the word to all Chocoholics about Choco-La . I had read about the place in Femina magazine and as well as in the Hindu newspaper.
Choco-La is every Chocoholics heaven. They have chocolates in every flavor, shapes and sizes. They had chocolate honey combs and even a chocolate lollypop. What more can one ask for??
We went there on Easter Sunday and they had Easter bunnies and eggs They were the cutest. The Easter eggs were made of chocolate and not cake icing which is what I have always found in India. The egg also had a variety of chocolates unlike the éclairs and candies that the usual eggs contain. Again I’m talking in terms of the Easter eggs I have tried in India. The Easter bunnies are so Cute!!
 They had something which I have nev…

Sickety Sick

Image
March was not good for me – health wise. I have been falling sick on and off throughout.



It all started on a the wee early hours of a peaceful Saturday morning wherein I suddenly jumped up off the bed, ran to the bathroom and vomited my guts out. From then on it was a nonstop show.
PR would rather have his nails pulled out than watch someone vomit so basically he sat on the bed and told me that I will be fine and will get through it and would gently ask me to close the bathroom door when I throw up cuz he didn’t even want to hear it. This is the man who promised me at the altar that he would stand by me in sickness and health. 
I happened to tell people about me being sick and everyone’s like ‘Any good news??’ For those of you who are not familiar with the term “Good News”. The definition is that when a couple gets married, there are not to waste any time, the man has to sow his seed and the woman has to start up her baby making machine and spit one out of her uterus ASAP. If I had th…

Blogger’s Meet

Image
The Chennai Indibloggers decided to have a meet up and I was one of the first to register for the meet. I wanted to meet fellow bloggers, people whose blog I follow and also my followers. I was looking forward to it.On the day of the meet, I tried on various outfits from salwars (too auntyish) to shirts & trousers (too officy)to dress(too partyish) to the point where PR was like ‘Are you going for a meet or on a date?’ I wanted to look approachable and breezy but not too breezy. So I decided to stick to jeans and a red &white polka dot top with matching red & white polka dot sandals (some ppl at the meet actually did notice the matching footwear. I’m touched! :) ) On the way to the meet, I met a friend and he was like ‘ What’s with the Santa Claus outfit?’ I was like ‘Great! I look Santaish instead of breezy!’ I gave the stare of death to PR for not pointing this out. Once I reached the place and am waiting in the registration, I decide to introduce myself to the person in…

Jimmy Choo.. I heart thy Shoe!!

Image
I finally was able to hold on to a pair of Jimmy Choooooooos... I felt like I died and went to Shoe heaven. It was just pure lust..There was an exhibition cum sale of Jimmy Choos in a hotel and a friend of mine, Pooja(Thanks a lot girl!!) read my blog and found out about my addiction for shoes and told me about it. I was super super excited.

Nina, PR(he was our chauffeur, he didn't want to go at all and was forced into it) and I went there. I was quite intimidated at first by the setting of the place until a pair of Choos caught my sight. I forgot about everything else.I had to control myself from squealing. Nina and I fell head over heels for this pair. It was love at first sight.


Isn't it just gorgeous?? Me wants... :( They cost about INR 52000.(Yup its 3 zeros ppls!!) PR was like its crazy for a SHOE!!! We were like 'Its JIMMY CHOO and its so worth it'. There were people buying stuff and we were so J. Sigh!! One day I'll earn enough money to buy a pair. One …

Bombs on a Plane

Image
Last night PR and I were watching a documentary of the hijacking of Air France Flight 8969 in the History channel which jogged my memory of the incident where the flight that I was in was supposedly carrying bombs. This happened in the 90s way before 9/11. My dad and I were travelling by Air India ( I know!!) from Dubai to India. I had come home for my holidays and was going back to the school hostel. At that time, I was studying in India whereas my family were in Dubai. I so hated going back and was super upset. My mom dropped us at the airport. We checked in and boarded the flight. I got the window seat (Yay!!) and was sort of sorting out my emotions – a part of me was upset that I was leaving home and another was so glad that I was not alone and had my dad along. An hour had passed since the flight took off and we passed a mountain and I excitedly (Sigh!! Can you imagine I was excited on seeing a mountain? That is so sad. Anyways…) woke my dad and showed him. He was like ‘Ya, whate…

Ball Scratcher

Image
Remember Kay?? How he got lucky and married the most beautiful scientist in India? Well he did. Lucky for him that his wife was comatose when she agreed to marry him. Not so lucky for her.

We never got Kay a wedding gift and it’s been over 2 months since he got married. MB and I were chatting and he send me a link and said ‘Why don’t we get Kay this?’

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, errrr.. maybe not Boys and Girls. I present to you


It is the Perfect tongue-in-cheek gift for the busy executive who's always got the itch. The scratcher is a chrome-plated hand on a crafted stick about 9 inches long. This ultimate tool for the modern man comes in a slick silver-metallic gift presentation case! It's a good laugh and a gift that will stand out in any party! Dishwasher safe and stain resistant.It’s apparently for the busy executive who does not have time to reach down and scratch his own privates but has all the time to search for this and use it. Then MB clarified it for me and…

Beautiful Blogger

Image
The beautiful blogger is me!!! YAY!!
Pooja at Thoughtful Randomness gave me this Beautiful Blogger Award.
Thanks a lot girl!!
The award comes with 5 rules. The first 3, I feel, are extremely redundant and silly.
I should a)thank the person, b)paste the award on my blog and c)Link the person who awarded it to me.
Come on, like duh I’ll do that. You don’t have to tell me. If I don’t do any of the above, it could mean that I’m such a sad pathetic thing who has either a very low self esteem or extremely egoistic that I decide to give myself an award. :p ( I mostly will come in the second category :D )
Pooja, after reading this, will be rolling her eyes and wondering ‘Why the heck did I gave her this award?’ I have no idea why I’m being so nitpicky. Anyhoo.. Moving on.. The last 2 rules asks me to share 7 things I find beautiful and nominate the award to 7 blogger or more. Now this makes more sense.
7 Things I Find BeautifulPurple. It isthe new Pink!! Shoooooooes – This list will be empty if sh…

Cuddles

Image
First of all I want y'all to meet Cuddles!!He was given to me as an anniversary gift by PR way back in 2007. He was so fluffy and cuddly, hence the name –Cuddles.
PR got Cuddles cuz I used to get scared in the night and would wake up and never fall back to sleep. After Cuddles, I have been sleeping peacefully like a baby.
I still cling on to Cuddles when I go to sleep. PR’s mom saw Cuddles one day and said ‘He needs to go for a bath. Give him a spin in the washing machine!’ I went ‘Gulp!! The Washing Machine!!’ I had become friends with the WM but I wasn’t sure whether I was ready to send Cuddles in.
PR’s mom also gave another stuff toy to wash. It’s a doggie with eyelashes that makes it look like a lamb and currently has no name. I put both of them in the WM and spend an hour talking to Cuddles telling him “How sorry I am” and to the WM telling it to take good care of Cuddles. PR just pretended to ignore me because he didn’t want to get involved at all. It was easier that way.
After…
