Happy Birthday to me – 2012

For all its worth, this could definitely be my last birthday celebration on this earth. That is if the latest date of world doom according to the Mayan text is to believed (Dec 21, 2012). But then I was never big on birthdays anyway. I am not really the kind of person who would go out and throw a huge lavish party or drink the night away doing crazy stuff, and then make the next day unbearable. Unlike last year when I took an entire week off to visit a couple of cities, this year was way quieter. But that’s only metaphorically. Because going by the gifts He has been gifting me this month, the celebrations look far from over. The gifts started pouring in as soon as last month when I won myself a lot of goodies from the blogger meet, including a brand new phone.

This year, H took me to this pub called Qba in Delhi, where there was a stand up comedy act. And boy, was it funny! We laughed our guts out for close to one and a half hours. I laughed till my sides hurt, my eyes had tears rolling down and I had spilled my drink twice over my new dress.So that was a great way to usher the birthday in, laughing and rolling.

The major part of the day went by quite uneventful because of the unbearable hot weather. In the evening we did go out and as many of you would already know that I have a twin sister M, went to meet her. We cut the cake and spent some great time together cracking jokes and fooling around.

I got a couple of gifts from the family which were very sweet. I also got 2 books from my office buddies. Needless to say, I was overjoyed! Can there be any better gift than that? Thank you besties 🙂

 

And then came the best news of the day.
I won the third prize for my entry for the Lakme Indiblogger contest.
And I have won myself a cool Amazon Kindle. Isn’t that great? I am ecstatic and on top of the world.

Dear God,
Where ever you are, I just want to say a Big Thank you for showering me with so many gifts this year. There is absolutely nothing more that I can ask you for. You have been so great to me. It just makes me feel that I am doing something right. I hope I can continue doing it and we can carry on happily with our awesome relationship dynamics ;-))

God loves Drama..!!!

Pan frying sliced onions in butter. The delicious smell wafting across the kitchen is intoxicating.Noodles and taste-maker is added. Garnished with finely chopped coriander leaves. A heavenly smelling plate of instant noodles is ready. And it tastes divine. To keep me company is my laptop and an old classic movie. I love the ambiance. This is ME time.
In this fast paced life we don’t get time to do the things we love,let alone spend some time with oneself. I am also a part of this ‘fast-paced’ world. Read an article in the morning newspaper about tomorrow being the ‘Judgement Day’.Apparently, there will be a huge earthquake across the world that’s going to reset Earth’s clock. Which means we all are going to die and everything starts from the starting 😉
Now this made me think. I have not really done anything worthwhile in the (almost)25 years of my existence. I don’t even know what my purpose was or, is!!!
Why does God have to keep everything such a hush-hush secret? Why not tell us what we are here for? Won’t life be much simpler..? I mean its like an appraisal meeting in office. You don’t know what is expected of you to get a promotion. Your manager knows but he won’t tell you. What the fisshhhhhhhhh.!!!
Come to think of it. I am enjoying my ME time whereas I could very well be doing what I am supposed to do. That would help everyone. But no…HE would rather let me enjoy my time so that I rot in my guilty conscience later as to what better could I have done with my time. And we think it is us who love the drama in all those ‘K’ soaps.
HE is an artist who is creative and likes it ‘over-the-top’. He makes us what we are and then leaves us on a treasure hunt trail to figure out the logistics needed for life. I want to find all those treasures. So that one day, when I go up there, I can give him my feedback form. Until then, I am enjoying my ME time thinking about what I’d rather be doing..!!!!!

PS: See ya all soon if the Judgement is adjourned for another day…!!!! :-))
