My world this week

So much for my blog tagline being "I never shut up" when I actually shut up for some 2 weeks! No it's not coz I was recovering from the salsa thingie....it's coz I was suffering from writer's block.....stop laughing you guys.....it's a serious problem....... The way it works is this.... I have saved some 10 half written blogs and have just never had the patience to complete them..... So am making yet another attempt....and if you can see it, I was successful wasn't I duh!

So here the story of my life.....putting down 3 of the most relevent topics which have been blocking my mind this week!

Topic#1: The lack of money
I hate waking up to a message beep on Saturdays. No, don't get me wrong. I love receiving smses.....really do......but Saturday mornings means getting a Citibank Alert and the dismal state of my bank account sets my depressed mood for the weekend! And then I received my cellphone bill (I fainted and had to be woken up with the sms beep), my credit card bill (sending flowers to friends sure cheered them up but left me feeling very very poor) and then to top it all the indian postal system drops off mails which says sponsor food for the underfed in ethopia....... hello......I'm trying to sponsor an underfed Indian girl right here in India quite unsuccessfully! Give me a break please!!! I am surely living below poverty line with the kind of money I'm earning. Key take out: Does anyone know of anyone who will hire someone with zero skills yet pay her enough to pay off all bills? (PS am very worried that I spontaneously wrote a scary term like "key takeout"...... I've obviously been spending too much time at office.......which is seriously hazardous to my well being!) I need a well paying job people!

Topic#2: My weight problem
When I turned 25 last yr, people said it's all downhill from here. Well they were wrong weren't they. It's been going uphill on the weight front at geometrical progression ever since. Some sweet friends even tell me "Hey if this size doesn't fit you, you can exchange it for a larger one....after all you're a growing girl"....... and it's a large size she's gifted me anyway! I will not exchange it no matter what coz a. I'm v optimistic. I think someday I will lose weight (Just to paint a clearer picture I have 3 drawers full of undersized clothes I no longer fit into but like to believe I will fit into them someday) and b. coz my ego doesn't allow me to ask for a larger size to a large! So even if my lungs file a petition demanding some air, i will not exchange that kurti!!!! It's royally hanging in the closet...will soon to moved to one of the drawers

Topic#3: Stupid radio channels
This is like complete nonsense! Finally there was this one channel which was playing good, not ok, not decent but GOOD english music and even that switches to bhangra and the likes! As it is we were getting more than enough doses of "my london london bridge wanna go down" (why must she announce it 50 times a day I don't understand) and now we have another one of those. Jeez!!! So there goes the sunshine...am back to 102.6

Ok 3 completely unrelated topics but I had to let the steam out!! Now I'll have some mind space to write about less mundane matters like rakhi sawant and the sad state of affairs of my social life (No the two are not related..they're just less mundance issues! Get a life!)

Till then......

Hehehe... random post is nice..

Ok first.. you are NOT below poverty line.. dont make me feel miserable early in the morning! I am pretty sure I earn less than you!

Yes, I really was disappointed when I finally tuned into 104 and found hindi music! I was like, didnt Zarreen say its only English?!

And losing weight! I took the low-down on that from Simran yesterday, she having lost 10 kgs in 5 months!! There is hope, my dear!! :-))

Helllo lovely cousin,

Update on truths in life from the music brigade:
. london bridge wants to go down katte....
. someone is bringing sexy back
. and if you wanna be rich you gotta be a bitch

And no point loosing weight, im outgrowing my cupboard, might as well just give me all your clothes. Ill pass on mine to the younger ones....sigh....its much easier than having ghas poos and goin to the gym ya.... and u have some nice clothes ive been eying!! :)

Below poverty line it seems!!! Wat am i doing?????Not existing is it?!?!??! Please refrain from writing such offensive blogs to the broke ,i.e me :)

Zee said...

Nims, so sweet! Now that made me smile! :)
Ruchi, i so am living in poverty...as in earning much much lower than what i spend!
Lovely cousin, welcome to the fat club! and you haven't earning. wait till it starts. then you'll realise how below poverty i really am!!

well i do agree with nimrata that this definitely brought a smile to my face...espescially when you wake up in the morning and think about the day ahead...Given that I have been pretending for the last three months that i do contribute in some deeply meaningful way to the organisation I work for...trust me its an art...

well money woes are every where... the more you start earning somehow expenditure always outpaces the rate .... ya and i hate citibank for the same thing and also all other banks...

hi to the lovely cousin...

good post...
