Because Everyone Should Have a Year-End Post

2010, you were my knight in shining armour.

You brought me so much coloured metal (and a soft purple chair), a snazzy flip flop design deal, a cargo of patience, a boy I love with all my heart, the start of a book of seriously short stories, friends I could brand mine (the way they do livestock), family that continued to show equal surprise and support towards every new thing I did, too many (great) good times, far and few (horrible) bad times and a year I wouldn't exchange for any other!

So, with all the awesomeness that you bestowed on me, I am sure that 2011 is going to have a hard time matching up.
But, I do, secretly, obviously and sure as hell hope that it really does outshine you!

Black Swan

Some guy at work just gave me a DVD Rip of 'Black Swan.'
Only, I'm not sure it's the same version and I'm too afraid to open it at work to find out.

For Toto

...
Who took off for a DXB vacay today.
And will spend New Year very far away from me.
Again.
But will magically find her way through the congestion, to my phone at 12:01AM on January 1st.
As always.

Killing You Softly

"You’re not a fun person" is one of the nicest ways of saying "I feel like shooting myself in the head everytime I’m around you."

Mother Nature, you suck. Sometimes.

The price of not getting your period is a baby.
Which is not so bad.
But from what I've heard, the pregnancy madness of nine months is still too high a price to pay to not bleed.
Eugh. Catch 22.
Mother nature, you suck.
Sometimes.

A Re:Stacks kinda morning...




It was all nippy, windy and dry,
In the AM.
Just like it'd be,
Had Bon Iver hijacked sunshine,
And thrown their own lovely lazy party.

Some Ships Sail

For Saki,

Who asked me to draw him something,
Just after his ship set sail,
So unknowingly.

Stop Asking Me. NH7 Weekender was Awesome.

To everybody who’s sad ranting to me about missing NH7 Weekender,

Yes, you missed something awesome.
Yes, you missed something that happened on home ground for the very first time. Ever.
Yes, you could have probably given up whatever it is that you were doing on Friday, Saturday & Sunday and been there.
And yes, Einsteins, it kicked ass. What else would you expect if you got 7 stages and 50+ national & international music acts together?
So for fuck's sake, stop crying and using emoticons like :( to express your grief.
Because you made a choice not to be there and as the Universe has it, you lose your right to complain the minute you make a choice.

Love,
Girija

Lame things I pride myself on...

"I can spot a bassist from a mile away!"
- me to Vinit responding to his very shocked "How did you find me?"
after spotting him at soundcheck from very very far away.

Implode before you Explode

"Implode before you explode."
For it is better that the remains of your disappointment and rage get
burnt and consumed by the sum of their own parts than by a world that
sees them as mere indulgent ash.

This Evening...

"Do you work in a playground?"
- My sister to me, after rummaging through my cupboard, looking for
good (corporate) clothes.

True Love is...

...When someone says, "Sweety, there's something coming out of your nose. Either it's that nasal spray liquid you just used or... uh... Here! take a tissue."

Yahoo!

Ernest Hemingway on writing,
"Work every day. No matter what has happened the day or night before, get up and bite on the nail."

I can safely say that it's the same when it comes to ideas. Many a times they go unrecognised, but sometimes, they don't. So when, at some award function, they are granted a miniature chair, you're allowed to, kinda, sorta, surely, show them off!
(Right? Right? Right?)

Here it is!
Another feather in our (and my) hat; Jaago Re won a Silver at the Yahoo Big Idea Chair Awards last night.

So what if we didn't win the actual Big Idea Chair, we'll try again next year. And just in case we run out of patience before that, I suppose we'll just get our own giant thrones made.

The Pot

The guys in office are just back from an hour at the gym.

Me: Someone told me that pot helps you lose weight.
Saki: No that’s not true, it makes you put on weight!
Me: Really? Why, because you get hungry and then you hog?
Saki: Yeah.
Me: Oh!
Saki: Unless you smoke a strain of pot that kills your appet…(Sam butts in)
Sam (butting in): Uhh. No. Such. Thing.
Saki: No no, maybe there is…
Me: So what’s the point of this? You guys slog at the gym, come back up, smoke and then hog.
Avi: But you know, pot helps build your body.
Me: What crap!
Saki: No way dude!
Avi: No. Really. See, when you smoke it, your muscles relax and then they get more time to recuperate and essentially, your body is built largely when your muscles are relaxed, right?!
Saki: What?! No man!
Avi: No no. Seriously. I'm not kidding. Arnold Schwarzenegger swears by it.
Saki: Arnold Schwarzenegger?!
Avi: Yeah man! And look what happened to that guy…
Saki (looking into the distance): Yeah…
Avi: He became governor!
