Wow! Look who's getting senti-mental :P

Masti like never before
Reunion with certain old friends
A whole new list of some new close friends
Quirky music
An unexplained hatred for loneliness
Beloved winter
Unceasing hatred towards numbers
Happydent overload
Extension of curfew timings
25% completion of the never-ending to-do list
Hearty talks with complete strangers
A discovery of talent
Short hair
Tentative acceptance of life & its challenges
That's my 2010, what's yours?

And the award goes to...

Today is when my blog turns 1 
*claps claps claps*

I know my blog archive shows I started writing from January 
but I had already made this blog before that 
but I just didn't have any writing material
or maybe I was just a very lazy kinda person.
I am still now.
But that's just not the same as before. 

I remember one not-so-fine January day
when I felt as if I need an escape
someplace where I could dump the feelings 
and emotional overtures I was going through without hurting anyone
or letting anyone know at all.

That was a big thing. Very huge. 
And I was just never the same again.
And that's when Dirty Little Secrets
Mind starts speaking, as was known previously
came to my rescue.
And since then it has always been there.
Waiting for me to approach it whenever I wanted to write
or when I wanted to let out everything I was feeling
or just when I was merely bored.

I haven't shared many personal feelings here
and I don't even think I have it in me.
I find more fascinated by characters more happening and interesting
than me.
I like dreams.
I like fiction.
I like poetries too.
But not having the ability to rhyme that well is a different matter
altogether. :P

I've met many people too.
This journey has been overwhelming.
Felling more close to people I read rather than people I am around most of the time
is a bit weird to wrap your head around
but it gives you the belief that the world is, 
a very small place
even in its diversity.

There are a few people who 
have totally changed my perspective
about life.
Or who have made me laugh.
Or others who have made me feel close to them.
Closer, even, then my best friends.

I can't do much for them but I should say that
I love you and your tiny world that I now feel a part of.
And an award in this situation is just passé.

So here goes,

1] Shreya from Such a Cow

2] Jeweliot/Dipti from Crowded Solitude

3] Ujjwal Raaj from Sour Canvas

4] Kanika from Sensitive Chaos

5] Bollywoodstylediaries from the blog of the same name

*beeeeeeg smile*

Me, the murderer of classics and brands!

I have always been an oddball. I have. And people always took that to be as crazy or weird. And thats why I have the least possible certificates and prizes in my account :[

I had been going through this book I used to maintain when I was in school. I had written in it my favorite texts, poems and some of my own compositions. And then I came across this page - I had attended a kiddies workshop when I was in 7th and had to create verbal advertisements for "Fevicol" and "Pepsodent" and we were given only 15 minutes for preparation. And this is what I do:

Caution: Whoever laughs on my compositions get their keyboards banged with their heads!

Fevicol [sing the tune of "yeh dil, diwana" from the movie Pardes]:

Yeh Dil, diwana
Diwana yeh dil
Diwane ne, mujhko bhi,
Kar dala, diwana
Usne mere dil ko tod, maine fevicol se joda
fir kabhi bhi nahi tuta hai yeh dil
usne dil ko punch hai mara,
isko shatter karna chaha
aur fir haath hi uske tute hai lekin...
diwane ne, fir mujhse maanga mera fevicol
I hit him, kaha kanjus,
its just for 5, get one of your own!

Pepsodent ["bheege hoth tere" from Murder]:

Peele daant tere,
Muh se badbu nikle,
Pepsodent use kar,
tu jaldi se
When you open your mouth,
I feel like gagging it
And when you come near me,
I feel like like vomiting...
Pepsodent use karke...
Your smile will be dashing
Girls will swoon all over you
You'll be all they'll be wanting...
yeah eh ehhhh
Yeah eh ehhhhhhh

P.S.: In my defense, I'll only say I was in 7th. I was a kid! :D
P.P.S.: I didn't win. :P

So, Elizabeth Jennings spoke for me!

"I fear it's very wrong of me
And yet I must admit
When someone offers friendship
I want the whole of it.
I don't want everybody else
To share my friends with me.
At least I want one special one
Who indisputably,
Likes me much more than all the rest
Who's always on my side,
Who never cares what others say
Who lets me come and hide
Within his shadow, in his house -
It doesn't matter where -
Who lets me simply be myself,
Who's always, always, there."

Rajnikant, WTF and a desperation of being 21.

I've been having a super time lately. I'd been shopping yesterday! And I've shopped as if it was the first time that I've been unleashed on all those clothes :P

All my purchases are well hidden in the deepest pit of my ever-growing mound of clothes in my closet. I'm thinking of revealing them to my mum around Christmas! =]

And I've just lived three family-free days all alone at my place! So, my parents finally realize that I'm old enough to take care of myself and the house and not leave the geyser on after leaving the shower or burn the whole house down or whatever. Yeah dad, mom, you make me feel great! :P

Or maybe its because of my stubbornness. You know I can make a pretty realistic looking pout and produce tears for as long as four hours! And after that I get bored coz my mouth hurts, eyes sting and everyone actually loses interest in me and leave me to keep sniveling. Yeah, lovely family, no?

Sunday, I went out with friends. After a long time, it feels like. And that trip was one hell of an adventure, mind you! 

I had been feeling all excited coz I had researched this little lounge called "WTF" at Bandra and what actually caught my attention when I was going through their info on Google is that an entire wall is dedicated to posters of Rajnikant!!!!! And all you MJ fans, there's one wall dedicated to him too!


Buuuuttttt....but but but...the first thing we're greeted with when we enter that heavenly little place is a warning sign saying "NO ENTRY FOR PEOPLE BELOW 21". Can you believe that? All this time I've been excited to go this place and that manager comes and asks me for my ID to prove that I'm of age. And what was actually annoying was that every other friend of mine was above 21 except for me! So harsh!

Well, it doesn't end here. We then go to Cafe Bonobo and they have the same fucking rule! So, as a last resort we go to FirangiPaani where the manager, too, asks for our ID but somehow we convince them that we're above 21. We go in, ask for jain food and they say there's none! :| 

Most of my friends have Jain food and there's no way, they say, that we're staring at you licking your plates clean.

Angry, hungry, defeated and annoyed we leave that place too. So now, i'm giddy with hunger, my legs ache thanks to my heels and all the places I researched don't want to take us in!

Finally someone comes with the idea of U-Turn and we all happily run [well, not technically] towards that place and sigh with relief when we're led towards our seats and served water. The starters come and all our annoyance is forgotten in sudden sounds of scraping of spoons and forks on our deliciously tempting plates. All in all, it was entertaining and we decided that the experience has been fun instead of annoying. Phew.

That's me in P!nk

My biggest achievement till date : My friend has to suddenly cancel the sleepover at my place and I see myself facing a whole night of darkness and fear. I'm like this biggest "phatu" on this planet. I've been scared to my wits with the idea of being all alone for a whole fucking night. And so, I'm surprised to see, when I opened my eyes in the morning, that I survived it. I'm still alive. *grins stupidly*

I know you're bored to the point of pulling at your hair and even though there's a hell lot I wanna type down, I'll stop here and save you a trip to the doctors after you bang your heads with your keyboards. :D
