changing times

After twiddling my thumbs and doing other useless things that one does when one is stuck at home feeling preppy, cheery and full of energy but forced to limp around the house, I decided it was time I took matters into my own hands. By that I mean, in a slow-mo defining moment, with violins strumming in the background, I reached out and held the car keys in my hand.

The joy that they radiated through the veins would require a separate post in itself. Such is the moment, that adding it on to what am writing would just adulterate it filling it with complete disrespect. Nossir, we can’t do that now can we?

Moving on, any of the images below can best describe me at different points in time over the last 15 years.

    Priya: aw! I love the joy you show. *hug

    Dipali: hehe, I donno! I need to be put on a leash, ok, tied down, or better yet, hve a zapper attached to my leg. Everytime I over do it, it would zap me down 😉

    whencut: hehe, I am I am. Ice+ElecStim kinda completes the cutting off senses btw!

    sb: OMG, I suck! I royally suck at that. 😐
    It’s a good think I don’t drive with my fingers :p

    bpsk: You are a charm aren’t you? Always keeping me on track, seeing the glass half full and making sure I chug it down too 😛

    I don’t know how I stumbled upon your blog but your style of writing is great. You have an art with weaving words and making it vivid and expressive. Also your writing is pretty mature in it’s style.
    A very small minus is sometimes your posts get too long that one needs to be patient not to skip through here and there. Otherwise most of them are gripping and I read it in a breath and smile satisfied 🙂

    Then again, an old mommy can dream too rt? 😉

    Deepa: That’s so nice of you! Thank you, now I know my day’s going to be nice 🙂

    Totally agree, Ive been digging through archives, and that’s exactly what I have felt too. That was a good critique. Will work on that 🙂

    Stitha: hehe, is Monday soon enough? ;-p

    Naren: What’s sooper? Me feeling old (maybe pregnant, acc to doc here!) or the fact that I am driving at 3 mph, or the fact that I had a jpeg loaded post? :p

    Doc: Really now? Seriously? :p
    But then again, you are the doc, what do I know!? I just pop babies out whenever my fancy pleases! 😉
