My first ever blog-friend meeting. Technically second, but I went on to marry the first blog-friend I met, so let us discount that. No, I’m not THAT dangerous. You can still meet me. So I met SMM. She’s cool, fun to talk to, and a great cook. And has a lovely house. And a neat kitchen. And I didn’t realize how the 2 hours flew. We chatted about home and work and friends and growing up and everything else under the sun. Of course beer featured too. Then we had yummy food and ice cream and then it was already time to leave! We’re definitely going to meet again. With husbands this time. Hoping they’l instantly connect over games and gadgets.
So the curfew at home is still on. TS did cheat twice by running away to friends’ places. But I did myself proud. Till last night…The in laws went on a too-short trip to Ujjain. Needless to say, we dropped them off at the station, and headed to India Habitat Center for some omelets, waffles and beer. Ah, bliss! I ameating only egg and drinking only beer, for the next two days. I have seriously decided to carry a water bottle filled with beer to office. Hic hic.
We indulged in a lot of shopping this weekend. A lot! Which reminds me, it’s the husband’s birthday coming up. What do you suggest I do to celebrate the birthday of a man who forgets my birthday every year? Seriously. If I give you his number and you challenge him to tell when my birthday is, he will hem and haw and mumble a bit. After whatever he answers you can most certainly say ‘Galat Jawaab’ and hurl a few ‘tsk tsks’ down his path.
Maybe I’l order a beer-shaped cake this time. You know implicate him a bit. Or send mom-in-law to the wardrobe where “The Stuff” is stashed.
Ok maybe I won’t. It is in MY wardrobe. Er…Umm.
Our Diwali cleaning has begun. Which means I have instructed the maid to clean the fans, doors, windows etc. Phew! A lot of work!
There are a LOT of comments I still haven’t replied to. Please don’t call me an arrogant bitch and please don’t stop visiting me. I’l stop writing and go reply right away. Seriously.
