The Blues day

Its here a monster not willing to go away...every week....month after month, year on year...the Blue monday is here again!

If I was lucky enough to be granted a wish--without doubt it would be to take away this day of the week!

And its not about it being the first day of the week--its just something about it being "Monday" which has a boring, lethargic, depressing tone to it...

After a fab weekend...spending half a day at a friends farmehouse, an evening in a lovely place for dinner listening to some fabulous live music, being treated to lunch and dinner by generous friends...which sane person would EVER want to work!!..And well...not that I would ever want to work anywayz!

Been really thinking hard on how to take away this bluey feeling every monday(maybe its also gotta do with my husband running away to bombay every monday for the whole week!)....but somehow dont seem to be getting anywhere near to cracking it!!

And I know for sure...its not only me...there are atleast millions others who dread the if anyones been lucky enugh to crack how to handle thie monster please let me know asap........puuhhhhlllesssssss!!!!!!!!!!

Husband Appreciation day!

Usually am a non- believer in such created days.
Not that I have anything against them but am not a "have to buy a archies card" kinda person too...

But today morning , I was shown the newspaper explicitly by dear Hubby since today happens to be "Husband Appreciation day" apparantly.....everything I do has to be linked to me showing my appreciation towards him , or everything he wanted was put under the excuse of the day...!

And after that every sentences that hubby dear spoke ended with..btw today is hubby appreciation day.....;-)

So, what the heck....dont care if it is actually hubby appreciation day or not, this blog is still dedicated to my dearest hubby who also happens to be my most favourite person in the whole world....dont think there's any better way of appreciating you than letting you know that am happiest when am with you!!

"The good part about marriage is that after a hard days work--you always have some one to come back home to"!--My husband favourite line!

So true.....Tuesday evening I finally agreed to this--the pleasures of marriage, never though I would say all this -but feels wonderful that I do have someone to come back to after a bad days what if that someone is squeaky, has a tail, whiskers and is really creepy and dirty!!!!

I married my boyfriend--but am living with a rat!...

Tuesday night after I realise that my humble abode had been attacked by the creepy enemy I decided to stand-up and play the brave soldier -Bravo!

So after gearing myself with armour( shoes which covered every inch of feet to ensure no contact with the enemy) , trying to make some noise (screaming, yelling, shouting, banging)breaking all hell loose in the house I realised I could not play Alexander--I needed an army!

So after running around to find someone, anyone who could protect my kingdom from the onslaught of the rat, I finally found my army -a noble watchman was dragged to fight it out. After 2 hrs of "battle", jumping across the kitchen till 12:00 on the night trying to provide morale support to my soldier to do the "fight unto death"....the rat remains.

A tired,exhausted, sleepy, wounded me...decided to play it smart and use the strategic warfare technique and laid a mousetrap....the trap was laid with tomato as a bait..the enemy came, nibbled at the tomato , enemy left... trap refused to work....rat remains!

So after trying all I could---I have decided that the only way out is to play it humble and adopt the request( read beg, plead) technique with Mr rat to leave my kingdom....

Dear Mr Rat,

This is with reference to our brief encounter this week where you almost fell on me. Would like to begin this letter by first apologising for "disturbing" your meal( on snacks bought and paid by me) in the cozy corner of my house. The intention was clearly not to harm or disturb your lovely dinner in any way.

In the recent two days ever since you have decided to invite yourself as a guest to my house I am having sleepless nights and nightmares about you(Sorry If I am sounding harsh). Also I have noticed that the entire top shelf of my kitchen (which incidently is my favourite junky food shelf) has been bitten, eaten and left wounded by your attack(I repeat all paid by me not you)--has been an immense source of pain for me--Sigh!

In context of the above would request(read beg, plead, on my knees) you to find another abode for your establishment since I do not see, much as I might like,this association working out in the long run. Would appreciate if you could give me a time and date for the exit.

If you do agree to move out, for your kind gesture, we would be glad to offer you a piece of bread(with butter if you choose) as a Parting gift! (open to negotiations)

Hope you would consider the request and take appropriate actions at the earliest.

Looking forward to your response.....

p.s:- Pray this works......Amen!

Aur Kya?

Its a species which I have recently discovered....they have been in existence for as long as man learned the skill making inane conversations....however for some reason I had never encountered them...(thank you almighty once again!)

And then it happened first "conversation" with an "Aur Kya" conversationalist...

A old friend of mine who apparantly didnt seem to have any work on hands and assumed the same for all other living and known souls on earth...The ordeal began when she called me at 11:00 am in the morning , when you just about kick yourself to work and then this call where she assumed that I was waiting for her call to blog out the entire chapter of my 26 yrs with all its hidden secrets...

Well seems easy....the aur kya work almost seemed like a remote control in her mouth...after every 2 sentences I spoke, she simply blurted out..Aur kya(think the count was around 20-21 aur kyas)...after which I was supposed to continue the monologue..err "conversation" forward..!!

And so the conversation goes...
Me:- Am fine
She :-Great...kya chal raha hai?
Me:- sab theek hai- tu bata...
She:-kuch nahi on ...aur kya
Me:- Been busy with work and well settling into married life..blah, blah, ...
She:- grt..sounds nice...aur kya
Me:- Blah, blah, blah, blah.
She:- wow sounds fun...aur kya
Me:- and then the client was terribly upset...blah,blah,
She:- Shit!..thats bad....aur bata

And smart me, I realised I had fallen into the"Aur kya" trap after nearly 10-15 minutes of this conversation....

Yes...exactly the same sentiment..Puhhllllessss dont make me your source to kill time....aur kuch nahi!!!!
