Hugh Jackman and Micromax

Image
I just found out that Micromax has hired Hugh Jackman as the face of their brand. 



HUGH Jackman!! This is HUGE!!! Hugh is HAWT!!

I have always associated Micromax as a brand that makes low cost phones. From the fact that they can afford Hugh means they have been made money. LOTS of it!!!

I find their tag line very corny - Nothing like Anything. What does that even mean?

Hugh Jackman makes that sound hotter and sexier.  We'll need to wait a while to see the rest of the commercial. Clearly I'm least bothered about the product that they are selling. 

Micromax!! Do not disappoint me and make this ad worth it. Make Hugh look good but then again he can never look bad.

I love the way HTC used Robert Downey Jr in their commercial. It was quirky and funny.




If you have read till now, you would have understood, I have no interest in the products these actors endorsed. Its the actors that interest me. :)

Have a good day!! 



Lion Man Hair and A Linguistic Adventure

PR sucks at languages except for English. He has lived his entire life in India and can't speak any Indian language properly to save his life. 

To give a background, PR grew up in Madras which technically means he should know how to speak in Tamil. Don't jump to conclusions. He has lived in a bubble where everyone spoke English. I don't know how he managed that cuz I lived there for a couple of years and not encountered a single auto or taxi driver who could speak a full sentence in English. 



This sometimes works out pretty fine for me cuz I speak a couple of languages and could so  totally bitch about him and he wouldn't have a clue.  PR if you are reading this, I said I could which doesn't necessarily mean I do.  For the others, I so definitely do that. 

The icing on the cake is, PR is so gona kill me for the next bit that I'm gona tell you all.

Gulp!!

Wait for it!!

Here goes!!

PR failed in the English exam during college. Yes you heard me right!! We were all shocke…

The One with Dengue, Itchasaurus and Gadget Cake

Image
This year I have fallen sick quite a bit and that too with stuff that I have never got ever in my life.

Case 1: Itchasaurus

I had gone to Kerala and some plant had some age old revenge to take out on me.  Basically I had rashes all over me. The doctors couldn't figure out the cause and blamed it on some plant, not any specific plant, that I might be allergic to. 

I kept itching throughout and got hit by my sister throughout for scratching. Everyone kept making fun of me and PR coined the term 'Itchasaurus'. 
I was not allowed near any plant. Every time I went near one, I would hear either PR or one of my siblings shouting 'Itchasaurus!! Step away from the plant!'
The worst part is when your foot itches cuz the whole time I felt like this.



I  told one of my cousin's about my new name and he actually changed my name on his contact list to 'Itchasaurus'  To make things worse, he had recently gone to the British Science Museum and found a dinosaur after which I w…

New Beginnings

No! Nothing drastic has changed in my life. I'm doing the same old same old stuff of work, cook occasionally, watch tv and sleep.
One important bit is writing blogs. After writing 100 posts here, a part of me was like, you know what, you can become a hot shot blogger. Another part of me was just shaking her and doing the Face Palm
So coming to the point, yeah well i kind of started two blogs collaborating  with my sister, Sofia and my friend Neha.
With my sister I started Random Reviews where we write reviews on books, movies, make up and anything fancy that catches our eye. Those of you who follow Random Thought's FB page might already be aware of this one.

So guys to keep updated with our reviews, like Random Review's FB page.

The next one is a cooking blog called Choco Chilli Divas where Neha and I share scrumptious recipes
My grandmother was a great cook, my mom followed her and now its the third generation to continue this passion for cooking, though in my case, the passio…

My Favorite Person

This is the 100th post on Random Thoughts!!! Can't believe its been over 5 yrs since I started this blog.
It started on a whimsical idea and after a talk with my roommate. Thank you Sangeetha(wherever you are) for encouraging me and being the first person to view and comment on the blog.

Ironically, my first post was written on April 1 and it was all about Shoes.

http://random-thoughts-jotted.blogspot.in/2008/04/feeling-stressed-out-go-shoe-shopping.html

After 5 years with over 100 Likes on my FB Page, 95 followers and around 50,000 hits I would like to thank each and everyone who have been with me through this journey.

This post is dedicated to a person who has been featured and been the subject of most of my blog posts. Yup it is the one and only PR!!!


Incidentally PR does not like being called PR. He would like to be known as His Royal Awesomeness The Excellent & Great Prithvi Raj The Best!!

Meh!! I'm gona stick to PR!!

The below pic is a classic example of what I deal …

Two Wrongs Make a Right!!

I have this annoying habit of forgetting to take the house keys before leaving for work.

I come home before PR and end up asking him to come so I can enter the house. Mind you PR's workplace is almost an hour and a half away. He would be in a meeting and would have to rush out..

There was this one time that PR had to go to Bombay for work and before leaving he was like 'Sonia, please do not forget to take your keys!! I'll be in Bombay and it would be difficult for me to come if you forget your keys' I was all like 'Just chill PR!! It will be all fine!!!'

It was all fine on day 1 and day 2.

Disaster strikes on Day 3. I forget my keys at home. Yet again!!

I was hyperventilating!! I didn't know what to do. On top of that I had a meeting which I decided to take from home!!  This was like the worst night ever!!
I bucked up and made the call to PR to inform him of the 'situation'.

He was calm, which annoys the crap out of me cuz he's always bloody ca…

Recap of 2012 - Pretty much an Awesome Year

Image
Hello People!!!

2012, predicted as the year that the world's going to end,  oddly enough was a wonderful and eventful year for me!! I'm basically doing a recap in this post for my own sake!!

Places Visited

The year started with PR and I spending New Year in Jaipur!!



Around Easter, we went to Amritsar to see the Golden Temple. Its always been a dream of mine to go see the temple. One thing ticked off my wishlist. :)
The temple was beyond my expectations. It truly is an experience to just go there and sit. I could sit there for ages. It was just awesome!!

So the women need to cover their head before entering the temple premises. PR had taken this pic of my friend Neha and I. Neha's husband on seeing the below pic promptly comments: "You both look like women who have been arrested in Police raid.." Need I say more!!! Men I tell you!! :P

Around September I had gone, as part of work, to London.


I went there at the right time. The weather was good, the company was awes…
