Home Alone saturday and fun sunday!

Saturday I was home alone, amma was still in chennai. I got up little late than usual, came around my house few times, made tea and had it with two buns.It was two weeks since I touched the violin but I didnot have the mood. So turned on the TV. As usual there was nothing good in it. My friend had given me Castle season 4 , started watching it continuously.I have stayed alone many times before but some days are just boring and gloomy. Saturday was one such day. I just had some noodles and some snacks and kept on watching Castle. Then practised violin for sometime.scared all the neighbours away (I kept the door close, so no mouse came in OK!).

In the evening I so badly wanted to have a hot hot brownie.But being lazy I decided to have nei chakkarai instead.

At night had some milk and switched on the tv again, saw kannathil muthamittal once again and fell in love with the music,all the actors and their awesome acting one more time.Then I started to walk around the house andย  realized how dirty it was. I felt like every single dust particle was looking at me ,smiling and saying “Ha ha tomorrow your amma will be back, she will notice us and will beat you with a broom. We should tell you atleast keep the broom clean!”. All laziness vanished in a second and suddenly I felt like I had ten hands. Took a broom quickly cleaned the house, dumped every single piece of cloth lying around inside the washing machine, turned it on.Then went inside the kitchen, washed the stove and vessels, arranged the slippers properly outside, took hair bath and then put the clothes for drying.At the end I was tired and slept peacefully.

Morning I got up early, cleaned the house again ๐Ÿ™„ , ran to the nearby shop , bought milk and curd , cooked something, practised violin again , took bath, ate, watched sathi leelavathi for sometime (laughed again) and ran to violin class. When I came back from the class amma was already there at home. I was expecting some real good compliments from her about my err… cooking and keeping the house sparkling clean.But..but you know what happened? she looks at the cloth kept on fridge’s handle and complains that I have not folded it properly!!!If you look at my house really its not that sparkling clean and all since we have too much stuff in this small house but still my mother has principles you see. One of her principles is to scold me now and then to keep me grounded ๐Ÿ˜›

Amma was little worried about some things,ย  I told her what SnS told me few days back – “If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone elseโ€™s, weโ€™d grab ours back!โ€™. I kind of made it as a story ๐Ÿ˜Ž and told her. She seemed to be okay. Then again after sometime she said something else and I told her another story.

Evening we both went to buy vegetables, on the way back I bought a brownie and a kachori :D. We came back home and ate it. On the way back to home she again started worrying and I said,

Me: *Gave her some longgg advice and then* so don’t worry ok. I actually have one more story for this situation ma. Shall I tell you?

Amma:*terrified* No No no please.Already heard too many stories today.One more and my ears would start bleeding then.

*cha!! looks like people can’t digest if I act all matured and responsible*

Then amma made the actual kuzhi paniyaram. Only after eating those I realized what a pathetic cook I am!!!She made it with fried onion,chilly and curry leaves plus green chutney.It was awesome. I don’t remember how many I ate but I remember having a stomach ache after eating- overloading I say!!! ๐Ÿ™„

That is all I did over the weekend.

hmmm… 5 days to go for next weekend!!!!

Have a good week people!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Weekend at chennai

There was a big grand engagement ceremony on sunday and we all had awesome time there.. Sharing some moments here ..

#########################################################

#the debate

Pooja is going on, I am sitting in the front row with two aunties on either sides.

Aunt1: *At me* You lost so much weight!

Me: *smiling*

Aunt2: No, she looks the same as we saw her last time.

Aunt1: No no, look I can see her collar bones..

Me: *smiling again*

Aunt2: pssst..its just this dress..look at her big dhoppai (belly)

*Smiling AWKWARDLY I changed seat*

###################################################################

#the million dollar question

Aunt A:- Why don’t you wear a big bindi?

*before I could answer*

Aunt A: You should have worn a saree.. if not for these functions when will you wear?

Me: mmm.. Aunty your saree color is too good, where from? (** an aunty in the making **)

*lame attempt to change the topic but it worked ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ *

######################################################################

#the million dollar question2

Aunt X:- talking to a married couple* So when is the good news?

Guy:- *with a smile on his face* in two months .

I don’t know if his answer was sarcastic or anything but Aunt X had no more questions ๐Ÿ˜€

###########################################################################

# Some people cannot accept changes in life

I was wearing this huge earring which is unusual. More than 10 people came and said

People: wow I have never seen you like this, with such big earrings

Me: *I was smiling big time and that’s it people just walked away.. Come on people,Did you forget the next line “You look beautiful” ???Grrrrrrrrr..

Heights is after the function I changed my earrings to normal ones and one aunt came running to me and said “Appaaada, now you look normal”. Poor me ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

##################################################

The whole hall was echoing the same line “Next should be yours, next should be yours”

Mudiyala da saami!

##################################################

# THE bulb

One really cool, fundoo cousin came and asked me “Hey Wassup?”

I immediately look up at the ceiling ( all because of the silly college jokes, everytime someone asked me wassup, I used to say “ceiling, sky,fan, tubelight” and giggle.Now I am the tubelight).Immediately realizing my mistake I did some neck exercise+ kathakali dancing and came back to normal and asked her “Heyyy, when did you come” . Worst attempt to cover up the damage no. God knows what she thought about me , she said “OK I will go sit in that row, cya” and left.

#################################################

#the photo session

This photographer took five full minutes for each phhoto ok. How can one person doย  ‘eeeeeeeeeeeeee’ forย five whole minutes? My brushing time itself is just 2 mins. My jaw started paining, but still I managed to keep smiling. At the end did the photo come out nice? NO. I look like posing for “Babu vum Appa vum ” Ad. No wait, My smile looks like Chandler Bing’s photo smile. Argg!

################################################

While I was going through all these problems, you ask where my mother was? She with her friend was sitting in the first row at one corner. These two were making fun of a guy and giggling all the time. And suddenly this person asked for a pen and guess who runs first and gives him the pen?These two “teenage” girls wonly. After sometime I went and called them for lunch, they refused to come.Reason:They want their pen back it seems! And like some telepathy that guy returned the pen immediately.

#############################################

I saw this video recently , any volunteers to do this during my wedding ?? ๐Ÿ˜›

L.O.V.E is

โค when your amma scolds you really bad for not doing anything on your own , not even applying vicks by yourself but later at night when you are half asleep she comes and applies it.

โค when your mother is really angry but understands that you are extremely hungry and waits for you to finish the meal and then scolds you

โค when your mother calls her sister living in another corner of the country and proudly talks about the rasam you made yesterday

โค when you feel angry when someone ELSE calls your cousin "motu"

โค when your cousin refuses to leave you alone even for 5 minutes everytime you visit his place

โค when your cousin waits ,listens to your continuous cribbing patiently ,consoles you and then shares her biggest news that she is getting engaged

โค when your friend sleeps on the cement floor without any pillows when you are happily sleeping on her bed with her pillows in HER room

โค when your friend shouts at you for talking loud on phone when she is sleeping but the minute you go out to talk she calls you back in since it is cold outside

โค when you walk to the railway station thinking that your 1 year old niece would have forgotten you and you will have to start from beginning to make friendship with her but the little angel shows her 4 bright teeth and jumps on you even before you stretch out your hands

โค when you run into the kitchen and bring some rice grains as soon as you see a pigeon coming and sitting next to your window

โค when your neighbour kid who is just 10 months old stands on all four raising his bum above his head and circles the same point endlessly as soon as he sees you coming back from office

โค when your friend reserves the last bit of paneer just for you and the same friend steals the last paneer saved by you

โค when it hurts you to watch a small baby sitting on a stranger's lap in a bus looking at her standing mom with tear filled eyes (no crying no howling)

โค when you wave bye to your best friend whe she leaves town after marriage, you refuse to leave the railway station even after the train is no longer to be seen

โค when your best friend calls you from other side of the world after a long time and starts the call not with a hello but with an 'I love you'

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
I Corinthians 13:4-8

Happy Valentine’s day!!!
Love you all!!! Smiley

Super Hero Returns…

Some days are gloomy.You get angry for silly things.You feel depressed.Problems look bigger.Anything could irritate you.You will be lost in your thoughts, worrying.But a mail/call from your friendsย  will cheer you up.You don’t have to explain your problems but they are there to listen.You don’t have to know about them sometimes not even their names but they are ready to help.No matter which part of the world they are in, they are ready to support you.You read and re-read their emails and feel that you are blessed.

Slowly you start forgetting about your worries, your heart gets filled with fresh hope. All your ‘super hero’ cellsย  wake up with tremendous energy and you go home straight from work and jump into the kitchen and scare your mom.

Me: Amma, What are you doing? You need any help?Shall I do this? Shall I clean that? Shall we make this??

Amma: Please go out and wait. Do not trouble me.That itself is a BIGGGG help.

Me: Oops!! All my energy is getting wasted.

Me: OK, I will stay out.But give me something interesting to eat

Amma: ok. Indha Apple.

Me: agh…Appleee..Noooooo

Amma: Do you want rava upma?

Me: agh..noooo

Amma:Arisi upma (rice upma)?

Me: noooooo

Amma: thayir aval (poha with curd) ?

Me: noooooo

Amma: Vellam pottu aval (sweet poha)?

Me: nooooooooooooo.. I want something interesting!

Amma: hmmm..corn flakes?

Me: NOOOOOOO

Amma: ***getting irritated.. ** chow chow kootu?

Me:

Amma: GO AWAY!!!

Me: ok give me nei chakkarai**!!

Peace restored!!!!!!

**My mother buys butter from shop and makes ghee at home.When we(me+cousins) were kids, whenever amma makes ghee she takes the brown sediment from the ghee vessel and mixes little bit sugar and rice flour. We enjoy and eat it.We call it nei chakkarai.Nei=ghee,chakkarai=sugar.

Amma says as a kid I never troubled her, never asked for anything no tantrums nothing.And all those things which I didn’t do during my childhood, I am doing it nowย  ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

Posted in Thoughts of a confused child

When you are sad…

. …your mind tries all possible things to find happiness. It searches the road, the bus, internet etc etc desperately to find reasons to be happy. My mind is doing the same thing now! Few things I did in the last one week …

*******************************************************************

*called one of my good friends*

Me: Hiiiiiiii, Good morning!!!!

Friend: Good morning, monkey!!! Wassup??

Me: Nothing dear . I just wanted to call you last week itself to tell you this but then I could not **giving some really lame reasons here**. Sorry. BELATED BIRTHDAY WISHES!!!!

Friend : hmmmmm…let me think about it (about forgiving me )

Me: **without a pause** Seri ok. While you are thinking about it shall we go and have DBC today (Death By Chocolate) ??

Friend: YES.OKIE!!ย  **She is such a sweetie na!! **

*******************************************************************

Mind voice:-OOH Nothing is good in my life.. I should do something new..hmmmm..ok lets go buy a brand new kajal!!

I read some very good reviews about a kajal brand..All reviews said that its jet black, just one strike and it will stay for more than 5 hours, smudge proof, water resistant blah blah!!

**OK before you come to a conclusion, I don’t wear makeup and I don’t check reviews for kajal and all.. I was not feeling good so did all these things **

Anyway, went to a nearby shop bought the kajal, came home, washed my face. Slowly opened the new kajal and tried applying again and again and again.. Nothing happened!!!!Extra dark, jet black?No nothing happened! Did I buy the wrong stuff? Are my eyes kajal proof? After trying so many times it looked ok in my eyes. Just then my brain decided to recap all the bad things in my life and soon eyes did a “water -resistant” test on my kajal.

Kajal Failed!!!!

********************************************************************

After banging my head on the office computer for 5 hours to resolve a problem, I go to the loo. One girl comes and asks me “Hey, Were you sleeping?”. Now how do I react to this? Generally people ask ‘ hey you look dull are you not well’ something like that na.

********************************************************************

I bought a pack of tea bun .It has 4ย  and I finished 3 with morning tea, kept one for amma (Yes,I am generous!!) and went to office.Evening when I went back I still saw the bun, asked her why she didn’t have it.She said “You will come back hungry na so kept it for you!” .I finished that one too without a second thought!! I was not in a good mood OK ! ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

********************************************************************

SnS sent me an email asking if I am OK

Me:- I feel like running away to Antartica!!

SnS:- I will also come!!!

I was smiling ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

***

Tharani called me and we talked for sometime.I felt much better after the call.In my last post I didnot even explain what my problem was but all your comments made me feel good.

Thank you so much and I love you!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

***************************************************************************

My latest dream..

I am in a shop and buying Ponds white beauty. Its price is Rs 564. That is it!!!!!

Does this mean anything? ๐Ÿ˜• I don’t use this product at all. Sigh! Even my dreams are boring now!!

******************************************************************************

Me: I am really very angry with you , God!! ๐Ÿ˜ก

God: **silence **

After 12 hours…

Me: I am still angry ๐Ÿ˜ก

God: **silence **

After 24 hours…

Me: I am back ๐Ÿ˜€ Are you angry with me?? I was really worried yesterday, so showed my anger. But I love you OK!

God : ** silence **

*********************************************************************

I am feeling better today.I have hopes that things will get better soon.

Please please wish me luck and pray for me!

Frog story..true story

In the previous post I had mentioned ‘meeting’ a frog after a long time na..here is the full story

I went to my hometown, stayed at my relative’s place. It is a very calm place with houses here and there. So frogs, snakes , cows, goats, dogs , rats, lizards are regular visitors !!During the 4 days stay, my mother had to go to her hometown for some work. I did not go as my youngest cousin had come.

One evening, I took some biscuits and kara sev from the kitchen. When I turned back I noticed a frog staring at me . It was giving a “huh I can jump on you any moment, Run for your life!! 1! 2! 3!..” look. I froze for a moment and called my aunt for rescue. She took a broom and slowly moved the frog out of the kitchen. When the frog tried to enter the room, I ran ,came to the hall and did ‘stand up on the bench’ . At that moment I thought the bench in the hall is the safest place on this planet ๐Ÿ™„ . Now if I think about it I was so stupid. Any frog could easily jump and reach that bench . Anyway I think the frog was equally stupid and went out without checking the bench. I escaped !!(I didnot allow my aunt to open the front door till next day fearing that it would come back)

My mother came back from her hometownthe next day and I explained the whole story with so much hype and drama. For few minutes she did not show any reaction. Then slowly she tells me this

“Yesterday when folding one of the clothes , I saw something falling on the floor.But because of all the things going on at homeย  and also I was in a hurry na to catch a bus to hometown I failed to notice it. I think I think it was a frogqqq”

Now tell me …tell me who is irresponsible!!!!

We both looked at each other for few seconds without uttering a word and started laughing!!!!
