Another milestone! Or is it?

It’s our second Wedding anniversary. What’s wrong with time? Forget the “Time flies” adage, I think time is travelling in one of those Japanese bullet trains. Before you know it, you hear a “Whooshh” and that’s another milestone passing by. It feels like, before I know it, I’ll be a dadi/nani, recounting stories of of romance, love and commitment hamare zamaane ke, you know.

But, on a serious note, it’s been a fabulous journey so far. I have been so happy at times, that I wanted to pinch myself to believe if it was true! And then there were times, when we have fought like there was no tomorrow. But we always make up. Not because we have to, but because we really want to. After a full fledged screaming match and calling each other names, we do get the feeling that the issue wasn’t really worth a fight. But then, a good scream and fight here and there, doesn’t hurt anyone right? In fact I feel, doing that sometimes is almost therapeutic. But yeah, you gotta underline that “sometimes”, ok? And whoever says and believes that “I love you for what you are” is completely bullshit and you should know that. Spouses keep trying (mostly unsuccessfully and therapeutically ;-)) to change each other and do succeed a little. Only to be faced with a “tum badal gaye ho” a little later. Married life is full of such and many other clichés. And yet, each journey is so different from the other.

H and I started ours on this day, two years ago. By far, it has been the most important, the most special and the most romantic day of my life. I had waited for it, yearned for it and was lucky enough, to get to live it.
Just like time, our equation too is changing everyday. At 2 years, I have learnt to cook, as much as a survival meal for two. Now that’s an achievement if you know my disapproval for cooking. And H has learnt that to get me to cook, he has to say this in the most pleasing way, “Don’t worry babes, we’ll order from outside”. Likewise, H hates to oil my hair (an activity which I emphasize must be carried out religiously 4 times a week). And so, I have learnt that I can almost (ALWAYS!) get it done if I top with a hot chocolate. So, there.

We both have our quirks. We love some of it. We try and change the rest. But as long as I can fit my head snugly in the nook of his arm at the end of a long day, I am not worried. I know we are moving in the right direction. Growing up. Having fun. Fighting it out. Most importantly, together.
Babes, I know you will agree to whatever I said above. If you don’t, well, we can always talk it out over a cup of hot chocolate, can’t we?

Hail the Bond couple! 😉

No Title

Some stupid things that have been blocking my mind. Need to clear my Cache memory for better sanity.
So people, beware. It’s a no-holds-barred post below. Read at your own risk. ;-))
1) Why do people some think that every question being asked around in 100kms of their vicinity is waiting for their expert opinion? Even if they haven’t heard/understood the question correctly or even if they are not sure about the answer, they will be the first ones to vomit some shit. There’s one such piece in my office. And gosh! Do I hate her..!!!! It seems to me that nobody has ever (like really EVER) told her to shut up..!!!!! Today I reached my wits end and just wanted to slap her….Seriously, some people have that ability to bring out the animal in you. 😉
2) I get REALLY irritated when people put up weird status messages (on FB) only to garner attention and the real emotion is nowhere to be found.
One “friend” has this habit of updating her profile with statuses like “Down with viral and cold :(“, “Sinus is troubling me again :(:( “, “Miss you momma, papa”, blah blah. I just want to scream and tear her hair off.
Dude, you know what? You are like, really SiCk and you definitely need medical attention. Period.
As for Momma, Papa, better call them on their mobiles. Oohh Gosh..!!! It just didn’t occur to your before…or did it? <rolling eyes>
And something that irritates even more is, the above statuses garnering umpteen numbers of “likes” and stupid “comments” like get well soon, oohh babbyyy :-((  
Yeaahhhh…. <snarl>
3) I understand that a blog is your personal thing and you can write anything and everything. And again, it’s up to me if I want to spend my time reading it or not. But when you share your blog on a public platform, aren’t you kinda making it open for speculation and criticism?
What really irks me is that some really pathetic blogs (where people don’t even write the basic grammar right) have this huge, almost mind-numbing junta who follows the blog religiously. And for post after post, they will receive 20, 30 and up to 50 comments like wow, u have a writer in you, what a story..!!!!!!!!!
Why is Life soo unfair ????? :O
4) There’s this shop near my house which I frequent for daily stuff like milk, eggs etc. The owners, a brother duo (pot-bellied and overweight) are like, the slowest people on Earth. I think even tortoise would win a race game against them, if they ever decided. I still have my reservations that they would even think about racing, let alone do it.
“Slow as a snail” should be rephrased as “Slower than even a snail” for them. They have to often bear the brunt of my indignation. But boy.!! It doesn’t ruffle a feather on the other side.
Yesterday I wished I could slap them and wake them out of their self imposed slumber.
But but but..!!!! So much for social etiquettes. Sigh, yet again.
5)

H

and I hardly get 2-3 hours in day to ourselves. And if a fight crops up, the day is gone. You gotta wait for one full day to be back together. “Ye Dooriyaan” sucks….. :-(:-(

PS: Half way through the first year of being married. Already. Just seems like yesterday. Whooaa….time does fly…..sometimes……..I wish it flies today too……….

Nothing serious….REALLY!!

Have been missing MY space badly for the past week or so. Nothing much that has caught my attention this past week. And nothing fancy in my imagination too. I thought and thunk (after effects of too much thinking..!!) and thought and could up with nothing substantial.

But then I thought what the heck! This is MY blog and My web space. I can create puddles of shit and post pearls of wisdom, depending on my mood.
Sorry guys for disappointing you with a puddle this time. But things haven’t been really that great this week.
When I am sad or frustrated, all the creative juices are annulled by the digestive ones I guess. Sorry for sounding gross. But I am totally mad and totally frustoo with some people in life.
They just don’t seem to understand me. And they put me in a fix constantly. And that hurts some very important people in my life.
The only problem is that the people who trouble me are also near and dear ones. And I really can’t do away with them. Stuck in a fix, for the rest of my life.

 Am pissed off with myself too for taking the easy way out. Need to take a stand when it’s required.

I read somewhere, “Love makes the world go around”. I think they should replace Love with Expectations.
If only people appreciated the piece of pie in front of them, rather than crib about the lack of icing.
