>Bruised…

>

  • Yes, I am, after my friend T, dancing with all her might on the dance floor, stepped on my foot with her three-inch high heel! My left foot is all swollen and blue now, a not-so pretty return gift for throwing a surprise party for her along with my friend M.
  • So you want the party details now? Oh well, I wouldn’t like to blow my own trumpet, but yes, the party was super successful! T was amply surprised, nay, shocked and the guests were all such sweethearts to be as excited as M and I were to host this bash for her. She showered us with enough praise in return to make it all seem worth it, if you know what I mean.
  • So why am I writing in bullets? Blame it on Twitter that has me talking in 140 characters these days and wanting to write blog posts like this.
  • I was contemplating VRS (Voluntary Retirement Scheme) after taking a week-long hiatus from work. Sitting at home and doing nothing for some time seemed idyllic and I thought I could make my peace with sleeping in the day and partying at night! But then I got bullied into getting back to writing. Honestly, I like such bullying that makes me do what I like to. So I’m back to doing (or trying to) what I know best, but as a freelancer yet, which is fine. So say yay!
  • May happened to be the first month this year that I did not venture out of town. In January, we went for a weekend getaway to our ancestral house in a small town near Lucknow, Feb saw us heading to Goa, March to Mumbai, April to Benaras and May nowhere! If things go as planned, I won’t be making the same complaints about June! Holiday plans will be revealed when finalised. Greedy me also already wondering about July!
  • I will be vying for my husband’s attention all over again, beginning today. And that just when I thought I’d have him to myself. Hate that the IPL and the T20 World Cup could not have been planned a little more apart to give us non-cricket crazy people enough of a reprieve!

As for the comments, I apologise on Blogspot's behalf :(@A: And I was wondering all along where everyone had disappeared… Then GM pointed out how I needed to allow comments on my blog, which really took me aback because I had never closed comments. Was a technical snag, did some troubleshooting and it's working! Thank God!Party pics? On my party blog soon!@Chrysalis: Thankfully, it's not so painful. And planning for holidays is just as much fun as going for one, don't you think?@unsung: šŸ™‚ Yeah, right! Now I can't wish I had a gay man for a husband, can I?@Solilo: Me too! It makes it easier to say random stuff coherently.

  8. >@Indyeah: Oh, you are the same Indyeah that I knew? I thought this was someone new!WP doesn't work for me because I'd have to change my display name for that. Can't stop being D, you know!@Geeta: That was sweet, thank you. @GM: A lot of people left this comment on one of my posts – "Kuch toh log kahenge, longon a kaam hai kehna…" Time for me to say that too!@Chandni: Pliss to tell also what you want in that proper posy? šŸ™‚

  9. ># Let the foot rest.# Were you ever an event manager? :-P# Twitter is not 107, it is 140 :-)# Will have a peek into what you like to do :-)# Traveling during monsoons is fun!# Please don't complain about T20 although the hatred is … well, somewhat genuine šŸ˜›

  11. >You travel every month? I am soooo jealous! Hope your foot is healing well. If not then there's an excuse for taking another week off for doing nothing.

  12. >I've realised that it helps to like sports (or pretend to). What with the cricket and tennis and formula 1 and football all vying for the husband's attention šŸ˜€

  13. >@Chakli: The monthly holidays just happened, but after you've spent the first quarter of the year like that, you do begin to expect more from the rest of it!And I wish a bruise was a valid reason to take off from work ;)@Meira: Lol! I used to like cricket actually till the overkill from The Guy's side! Even now, I don't mind a match but my life can't revolve around it.@J: Pray, nothing!
