I've had a day like no other... been working since morning and no sign of respite.. My uncle says " No matter how hard/late you work today, tomorrow morning the pile of work still remains"... I know, but i do have a couple of articles to send in by Tomorrow... a cash flow Budget statement i've been putting off for a couple of days and some other bits and pieces here and there...
My brains just completely wired... and refuses to comply.... went for a walk... hit the gym, got back home, and still feeling dazed... Which is why i said no work, and began reading my Calvin n hobbes comic.... what fun!! :)
Anyways, in all probability, the diligent Virgoan that i am, will resume work around 10ish and go on till wee hours of the morning....
Now, dont ask me what am doing over the weekend.. no clues... brain has officially FROZEN... no processing nothing....
Talk to u tomorrow!!!
Adios for now!!:)

mohe rang de basanti basanti rang de basanti basanti
mohe rang de basanti rang de basanti rang de basanti yaara
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
Unless you give the person a glare
Some people happily have an entire ramayan conversation while in a concert/play/performance..
Dont they realise it disturbs the others
for me, it comes naturally.. i get into a hall/office/client's place/meeting/movie/even a restaurant, i put the phone on silent mode....
OR are people just LAZY and DONT care about others?
Sometimes the ladies [no offence here..] will be hunting for their phones [inside their not so small bags] which would be screaming their heads off [yes, i know the latest enrique song is nice, but thnak you very much, would you pls shut that damn thing off] and then once they find it, another couple of mins talking to their partner/friend about who is on the phone and then they MIGHT shut it off!!!

What you need:
How to make it--
- In a pan, add some olive oil.. to this add the spices [ Bay leaf, cloves and whole pepper].. after a few mins, to this add the vegetables [ 1st the onions, followed by carrots and then the pumpkin]
- Cover this and let it cook for about 10minutes
- Add enough water to cover the vegetables and either let it cook in the pan or pressure cook the same - takes about 10mins
- Remove the Bay leaf and blend the rest to a fine puree
- Time to simmer this in a pan for a few mins.. Add milk and water depending on how thick/ light you like your soup [ this soup is better when it is wee bit thick]
- Finally, add the salt and let it come to a boil
- Pick out your mugs or cups... pour in the soup
- Top it off with a spoonful of the powdered nuts [ i used almond, slightly roasted them in microwave and used the blender to powder them]....

I probably love Butterflies cos
They are so free
and just flutter about,doing something or the other all the time... they never sit still [errr, like me ;)]
She wears Black saree/suit.. and bangles are loaded on her hands, which she isnt to remove till she gets into delivery.. All the women in the home are also given bangles to wear and take back to others in their homes!!! a fun function where everyone gets to put bangles on the gorgeous babes and wish her all the best.....

I dont need presents
Today was the day i was born....
Oh, i was born on Sunday..
Today was probably among the best birthdays ever!
Morn - i did do some work.. even attended a meeting, which landed me a new mini project! Got the chq for some work i had done earlier [good start i would say]
** Woke up to a zillion calls, sms's and then after i got back from the meeting, saw a Huge cake waiting on the dining table.. Granpa said it was from A, i dint believe it... opened the box to see a chocolate cake with a sweet Butterfly and knew it had to be her [ i have a thing for butterflies.. love em like crazy] :).. yet to cut the cake, was out all day, and by the time i got home,it was nearly 8 and gramma said 'lets cut it tomorrow when atleast uncle is here"... :)
** Lunch was fun... with a close friend,S1.. my sis n her friend,A at Bbq Nation ...
** caught up with another friend, A and headed towards Marks n Spencers [sale time]... indulged in some retail therapy... lolz.... bot a bottle of yummmy Body wash[cant get enuf of them you know!!], by which time another friend S2 had joined us.. Told them that i am off to meet S1, and bid adieu.. this was when S2 sprang a surprise on me.. She handed me a bag and said "Thats for you da'.. it was a cutely wrapped hamper of Clinique face products!!! :)
** Post dinner, ordered Ice cream for gramma, granpa, Floppy, uncle and moi.. it was yummilicious... :D
Pics shall come sooon!!! Thanks to reliance, cant upload em!!!

At the end of a long day, there is nothing more soothing than a cold drink or a special someone greeting you at the door... Now, i dint have a cold drink, i had a hot cuppa coffee- which wasnt bad, and as for the special someone, i instead had a sweet friend giving me an award!! how often does that happen??? :)
Someone mentioned the other day that i've been blogging for 3yrs, - now, i dint know or realise this.. but the truth is i've been BLOGGGING Blogging [in the true sense] for only over a year.. earlier, this was just a cache.. kinda like a briefcase where i kept dumping stuff [oops, preserving stuff i should say...pardone moi...].. but now, i love this place...
I love the fact that i can write and no one will say "stop ittttttt"...
I can rant all i want without someone giving me the "when are you going to stop" glare
I can write on anything i want without having to constantly look over my shoulder
I can be ME!!! :)
Now, comes the part where i need to stand up, get to the stage and be the gracious person i am supposed to be... [ya right!!! ]
here i am.... *blushing and feeling so special* i bow to all and say "I Accept"..
ThankUuuuuuuuuuuuuu Keshi !!! You truly are one of a kind!!! :)
how cool is that????
ok, now its time for me to spread the joy and share this award to others who've made a world of difference and helped me live each day to the full and begin my days with a smile!!
I bestow this award to ---
have a lovely day ahead!!! :)
