Change is not good...

I'm used to this life. The comfort zone and the known shoulders I can lean on when I know I'm down and out. People say that change is for the better most times, maybe for you it'll be good PG - mebbe, you'll get a super cool job and become the most powerful businesswoman of century (ok, that might not happen). But, for me, this change aint good. Not one bit.

Bitching on phone is never as good - without the coffee and smokes on the stairs. Who will I ping throughout the day with random shit??!! Too much has already changed around me, so this is just not fair!
I know I am not the most expressive person (except when I am drunk n all) but I'm bottling up a lot of anger and cribbiness inside me right now. I really did want to throw my coffee at you :|

I know this is not about me right now, you have bigger things to worry about and bigger fishes to fry. But, it is a little bit about me also I think, for us actually. Saying that I'll miss you won't really justify what I really wanna say so I'll steer clear of the mush and stick to the anger part of it. You Fool!!!! Be very very  scared the next time we party, cos I might just jump out and ninja kick your ass for going away! And NO, im not being childish at all.

This change is so not good.

From Agra with love...

Even though this wasn't the first time I was visiting Agra, or the Taj - the trips get better every time. This one didn't disappoint either. From the camel ride up to Fatehpur Sikri to watching the sunset over the Taj, everything boiled down to a super awesome time spent with friends. There is indeed something magical about old monuments. Reeking of mystery, history and romance... the royal grandeur of them all.. standing tall, magical and solid.

There are these times when I look at the Taj and think, what's so special? White marble ok, giant structure that took a zillion years and a zillion manpower to produce, ok. Understood. But what is it that makes people from across the country and the world stare speechless at this. It's pure love I guess. Granted that Shahjahan spent a fortune and blew up the treasure in smithereens while trying to prove a point - but the point he was trying to prove was all about love. Sounds mush and all, but it's true.

Dedicated to the mother of 14, the tomb of love looks almost ghostly white after sunset, at the same time it's serene and calm to the core.

Pictures speak a thousand words.. so here are a few!

Stop. Smile

Eyes itching with stuck up, stupid sleep. On my way to office, grumpy as hell - and Batman sitting next to me, driving, is grumpier. He pulled an all-niter at work (grumpy face smiley that I still can't perfect), and as a consequence I had a deeply erratic sleep schedule. In between getting up, checking the phone, calling, getting up for the maid (blah blah, you get the drift)... I slept ... but not quite. The outcome for both of us: needless to say crappy! 

Generally, I like the drive down to office. The music, the parallel singing, abusing the reckless bikers around, randomly laughing at stuff, occasional dance moves and giving death stares to the foolish pedestrians who suddenly jump out right in front of you like the group of girls in 'Suicide Club' . But today, we were both struggling to keep ourselves alive, smiling was out of the question.

And then came our knight in white shining car. The Honda Jazz owner right in front just made my day, made me laugh and just pulled me right out of my grump mode. The mystery man (in his mid 30s), very much ready for office with slick hair and all ... just redefined the meaning of excitement. He is very much a morning person I say. As we passed the car by, what we caught was a glimpse of this man jumping on the driver's seat and singing out loud with his stereo. Jumping is not an understatement here. He was jumping and moving his head from side to side. Seriously (like Will Smith in what-was-that-song-again!).  And, just like that, I realized - it's FRIDAY!

Amazingly refreshing that was - I must thank you mystery man! For all you grumpy people out there, cheer up, jump a little - It's Friday! Smile Y'all!

Weekend Watching!

Things seem so much brighter when you know something good is gonna happen. My 'evil twin' is coming down tomorrow and I can't wait to see him. It's been so long that we met, but I'm super excited about tomorrow and then the weekend especially cos we are all driving down to Agra. My Precious will travel with me of course and I intend to take some brilliant shots of Fatehpur Sikri!

Weekend come soon please!

Oh, and don't forget to check out the first set of shots (struggled a lot with getting the compositions right), but my precious is very friendly.

And then some more...

I'm drowning in work today - so much so that I missed lunch with my hippies (which I hardly ever do), and now I am sitting with a bowl of fried fish sticks on my desk. The drowning in work part is also keeping me away from me lover diary! But, I will not give up. I have exactly 5 mins (while munching on fried fish) to ventilate and stuff - so I'm going to write the most random post ever. This might not even make much sense right now, but had to get these things outside of me.

I am angry at some things.. some one and some situations. Control really is an illusion, and some times no matter how hard you try, you will end up getting knocked down. All I have to say to you is, hang in there - you will be fine! and then you'll be awesome as ever!

Mood swings and PMS' come and go, but what remains are certain blurry thoughts that randomly poke you around all day long, regardless of what kind of mood you are in - or even if you don't have the time to be moody.

Cameras are fuck awesome! especially mine. Yes, it's here obviously and I have already started taking pictures of almost everything that looks photo worthy (nikon ninja it is!) Can't wait to post 'em here (soon.very.soon)

I wish I would have picked up the grilled chicken salad for lunch, but I guess its too late now - stupid fish sticks it is.

Being sick and alone at home fucks you up in the head, but then I wasn't alone for long. Which is good.

Some people are really unhappy with me being around them, but then I have only one thing to say to them - 'deal with it bitches', I'm here to stay!

Until a more elaborate rant and then some more..

It's coming!

My precious is on it's way. Well, sometime back I had expressed my eternal love for my precious and that I intend to get one of these. And, I am finally getting it. Ordered it online just now, and it should be here in another 2-3 days. It was definitely worth the wait since I got an awesome offer and free goodies with it! 3 cheers for online shopping!

The excitement is just killing me and I can't wait to bombard this blog with amateur  pictures of random everyday things.

Always wanted one for myself, and I am waiting anxiously for you to arrive my precious!

Lacking Persistance!

There are those days when you just feel like writing something and pouring your heart out really, cos there's just so much you want to write about and there is so much going on. But, what you end up doing instead is this :

step 1. put on your headphones.
step 2. start grooving. {{{{}}}}
step 3. try to start writing/write a few lines/ponder!
step 4. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz......... say whaaa!!

So, I guess what I am trying to say is - procrastination is a major kill-zone. Sometimes the stuff just comes out naturally and you're so vulnerable that the words control you. almost. But then there are those days when you have so much to say, think and want - but so little to write about. For example, I've had a rather eventful week.. went back home during one of the most festive seasons (that there ever can be). Kolkata is a whole other place during Durga pujas. Period. And, there is just so much news and so much stuff and soo sooo much that happened, that the thought of penning it down is leaving me overwhelmed.
I'm at step 3 right now, so might switch off any moment. Will be back later with persistance, 'cos I must write this shit down! :P

Anyhoo - here's a sneak peak!
