Random Thoughts

The first of the giggly girls got married last month. Never thought Al Dudette, the bride, who was born to get her pictures clicked would actually reach a point when she would shoo away the photographers! It’s almost like me saying I’ve had enough to eat!
***************

Performed on Sawariya for Al Dudette’s wedding. 4 months of salsaing and not a bit of it showed in any of my movements! Blamed it on our ageing 27 year old brains to not remember any of our steps once on stage. Even the scurrying off the stage post our performance wasn't graceful enough!
***************

Saw a very sweet scene last week on my walk to office....an old man walked out of the Bank of Baroda, holding up what seemed to be his updated passbook and smiling to himself. Pension day? :)
***************

Attended a wedding of an Indian boy marrying a firangi girl. Since the girl's family is far removed from the joota churai concept, we see the groom’s sister’s snickering in a corner with the bride’s shoes tucked under their arms!!! Very convenient to reverse the ritual and earn in dollars too! Needless to say the poor foreigner family got suckered....
***************

Important lesson learnt in life. Never eat and type at the same time. A crumble would roll onto the keyboard and possibly get suck under the T key and you can spend a good 10 mins trying to type out the t’s in the blog. Man, T must be the most commonly used alphabet or something…
***************

Cannot believe Deepika Padukone is seeing Yuvraj Singh. He's so ghaati!
***************

I need to buy a white jacket. Went out last night and all the page 3 varieties seemed to be sporting one. I felt very out of place in my oversize blue sweater which went for a wash last in 1875 or something!
***************

Met some Aunty who was bragging about her granddaughter and aweing at the kind of wit and intelligence kids nowadays show. To make her point, she tells my mom "Aajkal ke bacche toh bade computerized ho gaye hain" (Kids of today are highly computerised!). Cheers to pathbreaking English!
***************

Cried for 2.5 hours watching Tare Zameen Par. Would've cried all of the 3 hours but thanks to my punctual boy we arrived 1/2 hour late for the movie
***************

The crumb has now rolled down to the V key now....man....this is annoying.....

TZP made u cry? i thought u were made of thicker skin (lol)!

Anurag said...

how come everyone cries watching Taare Zameen Par...have to see it...

n holy crumb...it is creating a nuisance i say :o)

n last but not the least...yuvraj singh ki maut mere haathon likhi hai :D

s4n705h said...

you could have pulled out all the keys and have got rid of the crumb. you could have found loads of interesting things in the cleaning process!!

He is not ghaati he is jaat.. worse than a ghaati!!

me cried once when the title track of TZP was being shown.

Buy a new keyboard it wont cost the earth :)

Adarsh said...

2.5 hours !!!!
c'mon Zee ... i can give you 1 or say 1.5 hours... but that's it.
though I have my reservations about the movie, it is still BRILLIANT.
and to neutralize the TZP effect, I watched Welcome right after :P

and salsa !!!! sawariya !!!!
GOOD JOB :P

Still searching said...

how can you dance to sawariya?? pls send video if you have!! btw, you're the only one wearing non-punju saree in the pics! cheers to that! lol!

i cried in ZP, and not just cried, sobbed!! and apparently my cousin and i were the only ones in the entire hall crying! everyone else was totally dry-eyed! heartless people!

Candid Confessions said...

Aww.. I cried too watching taare zameen par.. Absolutely adored the movie!

Renovatio said...

The key to that is to turn the keyboard upside-down, and shake the living crap out of it. Crumbs you didn't even know were there will pop right out.

Cool said...

i hope the next of the giggly girls to get married is you... we need some partying so please do the honours :)

nutty said...

LOL!!!!

as usual - hilarious!

do we get a video on youtube of the saawariya performance?

errrr... at the risk of being killed by all male readers - deepika padukone isn't all that great either so who cares who she dates :P

crying thru TZP - been there done that .. tho I was so silent about no one came to know ;) phew! (of crs they do now thanks to this stupid comment from me :P)

mathew said...

you havent seen worse things..imagine a idiot who was cleaning the keyboard of a laptop with vaccum cleaner in full throttle only to end up few keys gettin sucked up..it was so gratifying to see him open the vaccum dust bag searching for his P's and Q's..;-P

Anshul said...

The old man must be smiling because his kid(s) must have send in some good money (I hope); I like that; when kids take care of their parents.
how can you "perform" at your friend's wedding; it so annoying. I know I used to so hate it when my mom used to force me to sing a song or something. doing something imprompto is so much more fun; but ah well to each his/her own, I guess! send me movie.
watch Bhagam Bhaag; you will forget TZP.

You wanna see a real cute movie; see Knocked Up; its a sort of movie of what would happen if Abhinav Madan & Deepika Khattar suddenly realise that they want a baby. I am NOT joking!

Zee said...

rt....yes it did!!! i bet u cried too!

anurag...yes pl go see it...the crumb is gone now....

s4n...buying a keyboard in my laptop would be a rather expensive proposition now!

adarsh...won't say it's brilliant but it sure made me howl!

searching....we were all howling in the hall....see...watching a movie in india is so much better!

candid...the kid is so cute!

renovatio....shake up a whole laptop??? errr....no thanks

nutty....all i can say is nice knowing u...the guys are going to kill u

mathew...it was u wasn't it! confess confess

shool..bhagam bhag was terrible!!!! our performance was one out of 16 by a professional choreographer and there were 6 of us on stage!!!

Anshul said...

16 performances?
choreographer?
was this a marriage or a movie?
man ....

no comments on me matching up Madan and Khattar?

Theorist said...

so cute !!
pls write more abt the wedding

TS said...

Ha ha, I love the tag line of the header. Sums up most of my conversations.

:)

A Shade of Blue said...

Salsa-ing to Saawariya! That seems like an interesting first! :D
And may I rise to Yuvraj's defense here and say that jaat (jatt?) boys seem far worse than they are. I've spent a lot of time in Yuvi's city! Personal experience speaking!
Take care and keep talking.

IR said...

funny as usual
i have to agree with people before me, how can anyone dance on saawariya ? :-) , and if you mean the title song, is'nt that a male song ?

yuvraj=ghati haha!

LostWeasley said...

you managed to get stuff stuck in ur laptop???
and yeah, yuvraj is a git.
and TZP rocks.

beanpole said...

you didnt mention the fall during the performance...

DreamCatcher said...

while the majority is on Yuvi's case...I find Deepika equally lacking in class...and that too I haven't watched her movie. Just her appearance in one of the reality TV shows manages to turn me off. I was annoyed by her southindian accented english. Nothing against the southindian accent but I guess I was surprised cause I wasn't expecting it. OK Ok it was a trace accent...but it annoyed me. So I would say match made in heaven. Amen!

CM-Chap said...

Thought I can learn salsa frm u..after readg this post I knocked that idea out.

lemonade said...

seriously..wat is up with deepika padukone??!

i like the way u write! :)

Solitaire said...

The first 30 minutes of TZP would not have made you cry...so you did not miss any tears! :)

anonme said...

I like the way u write! :)
Ugh! Whats with these cricketers anyway? Match made in heaven i shud say!
Awww@the old man's smile after updating his passbook! :)
lookin' forward to reading more.. I hope you don mind me blogrolling u! :)

ScRiBbLeR said...

Yet to watch TZP...did u buy ur blue jacket? :)

Dusty Fog said...

the deepika/yuvi thing, I fully agree with you on....and the old man passbook scene...yup...real nice....TZP...me thinks quite a killer debut by AK...cheers..!!!

equilibrium said...

Yeah man, Deepika's tale! :D

And don't type and have tea at the same time.

Zee said...

shool...strangely after ur comment i got an sms from khattar....hmmmm

theorist....yes maam..will do...

ts...join the club!

blue...actually it was just a dance on sawariya but i thought the salsaing would've made me more graceful

ir...male song=6 unmarried women dancing on it!

weasley....dunno how i managed it...crumby life..

beanpole...i did not fall in the performance!

dreamcatcher...actually i quite like her...she's quite graceful and pretty...and pretty stupid too!

cm....tsk tsk...another student lost...

lemonade...thanks...why the shoes if u're called lemonade???

solitaire....phew! thank god for that...

anonme...agree agree!

scribbler....white jacket! no money...sigh...

dusty....debut by ak??? i thought he overdid the commercialism actually....just like in rdb....everyone else was real..he was very actorish!

Parul said...

TZP made you cry? hmmmmmm....what was even more tear jerking was Padukone's tie up with Yuvraj!

boredbrahmin said...

With all respect to Indians, as I am one myself. What the F^&& is wrong with a southIndian accent! North Indian is not exactly Prince charles is it? And Judging someone's class by thier accent, if you ask me ... umm, neva mind, getting carried away.

Excellent post! I gota watch that film now, Tzp, all this talk has influenced me. Always eating on ma pc desk, so if i cant be botherd to make maslf summin to eat. Just tip ova the keyboard and help myself, eh!

Bulsh, it probably means naarii..which is what you ae!! :P

mystique said...

hullo.........
crumbs in keyboard.....you're lucky....i got water in my keyboard once.....
go hunt in my blog archives, you'll see results.

Alameen said...

aajkal ke computerised bachche....
Reminded me about the job offer i got in my first year engineering. My senior offered a job in the computer related field itself..

STD ISD booth fully 'Computerised'.. It was recession period and was afraid of this till i got my first offer letter... :)

Parul said...

So I have landed here god-only-knows-from-where...and your writing is so funny that I threaten to be back....

Ensuring that my laptop remains crumb-free is my number one reason to go on a diet...and if even my number one reason doesn't work, I guess that means that the diet should meet an early end at once.

JollyRoger said...

Hmmm this post seems to have opened a torrent of comments!!!!

Nice post. I actually was battling with the crumbs problem before this , so I guess its kinda universal.

Abt Deepika, Yuvi is not a hunk nor is she a Bomb, I guess they will suit each other.

Renovatio said...

Yep, shake it baby! ;)

five_silver_rings said...

good stuff.

Like the way you keep shifting perspectives along with your posts, as well as the ease with which dark humour creeps into your work.

Write more :)

five_silver_rings said...

P.S. Sawariya? Salsa? Ermm... really? Must say, I'm impressed. Though I do think that the two don't really go together, but I like your guts.

Ekta said...

i agree why wld she want to see yuvraj of all people??????
and I abso lovvveddd TZP...in fact my latest post is on TZP...and yes there were loads of wet hankies...
What a masterpiece Aamir has created!

Sri said...

salsa & saawariya is a weird combo.

How do we know said...

:-)

Johnny Cigar said...

The title reminded me of a survey i once read which said that random was the most commonly used word in the title of blog post..
as for TZP, expectations spoiled the fun when i watched it.
nice post none the less.

Zee said...

parul...it didn't make u cry?? that's a first...

bullshee....it means LS....now figure that...

aiswarya....on the office comp eating is ok...but u don't want to spoil ur personal comp!

mystique....good god! that is worse!

alameen...hahahah! fully computerised std booth...!

parul...hmmm...good reason to go on a diet!

jolly...she's pretty decent...he's just...ghaati!

renovatio...done...ps...u have a great list of links...read thru all of them...amazing!

five silver...dark humour?? i sound like voldemort...shit i've forgotten the spelling

ekta....:) read!

sri...not salsa to sawariya...but salsa shud've influenced my sawariya movements!

how do... :-)

johnny...hmmmmmmmmmm

harsh said...

Rolled over to your blog from anurag's... and its good. Regarding the crumbs thing - I once had some sweets under the keys and ants had made home in my laptop. You press "P" - loads of ants start running out, "T" - the same result! Took a full 2 days, after putting it under the sun and wiping it clean to remove the last of the ants :)
