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

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.

The Buzzing of the Google Buzz

Image
I was caught quite unawares to the Google buzz. I login to Gmail and I get this message asking me whether I want to check out Google buzz. My suspicious side which thought it was some stupid hacking crap clicked No or more so the option that said ‘Naaaah’.
Once logged into Gmail I see a tab under the inbox called Buzz with a multicolored icon. Honestly speaking I was more inclined to clicking on seeing the icon. Google so knows a woman’s mind. :D If it was some boring ordinary tab, I wouldn’t have bothered.
Once I get in to Buzz, it shows that I’m apparently following 59 people and 19 people follow me. I go ‘Woah!! This is my first time. How can I be already following people?’ I thought someone really did hack or something. I am super paranoid about people hacking into my account. It’s like butting into my personal space. My practical side jumped in and found that it has synchronized with my Google reader – People you follow, which is why I’m following a lot of people. It was a relief…

I’m not D’lunk – Sonia ‘under-the-influence’ Story

Image
PR has finally finished his version of my 'I'm not Dlunk!!' story
My version - It never happened. Its all in PR's headSo readers go ahead enjoy the world of PR's imgagnation..

Hello All, I am the one most of you know as PR though some priest at my wedding preferred to call me Alexander. But that’s another story. This is my first guest appearance in Sonia’s blog and I have to say I am quite excited. As a husband I feel it is my duty to support and encourage my wife in activities of interest such as blogging for example. Also Sonia strongly suggested that it would be in my best interest to write a post on her blog, but mainly I am doing this out of love… Love the fact that I can tease her in front of a wider audience who knows not how strange this creature be!! The “I’m not D’lunk” story happened way back in our second year of college. It started like any normal day, with a continuation of the fight we were having the previous night. See Sonia and I like most couples …

Birthday 2010

Image
Happy Birthday to Me!!
Happy Birthday to Meeee!!

Well technically it was my birthday yesterday. PR threw a surprise party for me on sat night. PR & his mom told me that relatives are coming home for dinner so we, aka his mom & I, spend the whole of the morning and afternoon cleaning up the place in btw aunty cooking the food too.

PR as usual lazed about and probably lifted his left butt cheek to scratch and carried on playing Duke Nukem - another mindless violent video game. So basically I cleaned up the house for my own surprise birthday party whereas PR did nothing and his reason being 'He wanted the day to be as normal as possible so that I wont be suspicious' (Ahem!!!)

In the evening I get all ready and step out to see aunty watching TV and not yet ready. I ask her why she's not and she looks at PR & then at me and back to PR and blurts out 'They are not coming. They canceled out on us. Why don't you both go out for desserts?'
We come back after dess…

S.H.I.T

My dad forwarded this as an email to me. I couldnt stop laughing.. I hope you guys enjoy it too

TO: ALL EMPLOYEES
FR: MANAGEMENT
SUBJECT: SPECIAL HIGH INTENSITY TRAINING

In order to insure the highest levels of quality work and productivity from employees, it will be our policy to keep all employees well trained through our program of SPECIAL HIGH INTENSITY TRAINING (S.H.I.T). We are trying to give our employees more S.H.I.T than anyone else.

If you feel that you do not receive your share of S.H.I.T on the job, please see your manager. You will immediately be placed at the top of the S.H.I.T list, and our managers are especially skilled at seeing that you get all the S.H.I.T you can handle.
Employees who don't take their S.H.I.T will be placed in DEPARTMENTAL EMPLOYEE EVALUATION PROGRAMS(D.E.E.P S.H.I.T). Those who fail to take D.E.E.P S.H.I.T seriously will have to go to the EMPLOYEE ATTITUDE TRAINING (E.A.T. S.H.I.T). Since our managers took S.H.I.T before they were promoted, they do…

It’s been exactly a month since PR and I got married. We survived our first month of marriage and before we know it we’ll be celebrating our first wedding anniversary. Scary!!
I was chatting with a cousin sister ( or like my English teacher used to say “female cousin” cuz apparently there is no such thing as cousin sister or cousin brother in the English language. Yeah Whatever!! I’m still going to say cousin sister. Go ahead Sue Me!!) and she’s gona complete 10 years of her marriage.

CS: How is married life? Are you astounding him on your cooking?
ME: Well I’m cooking but the astounding bit has not yet happened
CS: Are you still at work? (It was around 8 in the evening!!)
ME: Yup, I’m working in the 11 to 8 shift cuz PR is in the 12 to 9 shift so that we can spend some time together
CS: What a crap work timing?
ME: Tell me about it. By the time I reach home and have dinner, its already 10:30. I’m super duper tired by then.
CS: So its Work, Sleep and Work Again
ME: Pretty Much :(
CS: Imagine i…

Paths of Glory

Image
I apologize for not being around. I have been having a crappy time in my professional life and been quite upset about it. All I could think about the past few days was about it and I didn’t want to rant about it in my blog. Nothing has been done to fix it and I have let it go. It’s not like the end of the world. I’m still getting compensated at the end of every month.
I was reading Jeffrey Archer’s ‘Paths of Glory’ which is based on a true story. It’s all about climbing Mt Everest. I know it sounds so boring. I would have thought to if someone had told me this. PR’s mom had read this book and told me it’s really good. I decided to read it because after all its PR’s mom who told me about it and I wouldn’t want to offend her and I value her opinions. (See I’m such a nice daughter-in-law. No one’s told me that so far so I have decided to blow my own trumpet :P )
I have been an avid reader of Sir Jeffrey’s work. He took the most boring subject (according to me) such as mountain climbing and…
