People and their various roles.....

Just thought of listing out a few people and the roles they play in my world....

Nameeta
* My TV guide: She reminds me to watch Tv.... she knows when the reruns are and I started watching Grey's Anatomy, One Tree Hill, American Idol, etc. because of her. (She used to watch that irritating alien serial too Roswell, that was one silly show)
* My sider: She's on my side, while arguing with the parents.

Manoj and Vinod
* My laughter generators: There's nobody on this world, who can make me laugh like they do.
* My extravagant Genie's: All I have to do is say the word, and the next thing you know its on its way to me. (I have asked for chocolates and books... and they bring them in excess.)

Shilpa and Anju
* My very own Reality tv/Sitcom shows: Their lives are very entertaining. Shil turns everything into an event, while Anju is a magnet that attracts all weirdos out there.
* My psychiatrists: Yeah, they listen and give good advice. At the end of it all, Shil, is ready to bash up the people that have made me lose my sanity while Anju tells me "God's will, will not take you where His power will not lead you"... stuff like that.
* My movie/book reviewers: Their taste is as good as mine.

Mahesh (This boy at school)
My coast clearer: There are huge lizards ( by huge I mean enormous, fat, ugly, disgusting) in the office room. Mahesh makes sure the coast is clear before I enter the office room.

Megha
Really sad but stupidly funny joke cracker: That girl is all about the sad jokes you will ever hear, but they sound funny coming from Megha. Eg: Tap dancing is really easy, all you have to do is hold a tap and start dancing.

Ryan

Atrociously funny oneliner guy: Some of the sentences I remember: The stars were on a mission in the missionary position. He also said something about women being cranky when they have to nurse their dying eggs. 

The kids nearby
Hard rock/ heavy metal entertainers: When they come over, its just noise, noise and more noise.

Nitya
My Psychoanalyst: She's a regular Sigmund, its fun talking to her.... she asks all these questions and she watches your response, then she gives her verdict. Every single gesture, the slightest nod or laugh is interpreted.

Jude
Purple Prose Entertainer: Its fun chatting with this guy, he often uses rich words while conversing, sometimes you have to google them to find out their meaning. He once referred to baptism as 'banishing evil from the psyche'.

Antonio
Better Person Maker: I know its cliche but I do think its true... he's just so calm and collected when my temper flies all over the place. When no ones arguing back, the steam in your head evaporates after you've had your say. And after a while, you tend to blow up less often... you learn to take things in your stride. 


There are a lot more.... will enter them as & when I remember.

Very nice one! :) I'm so touched. If that anonymous is shilpa, then in an odd sense it makes sense. :p
If it's not her, then there you go, another sitcom.

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…

Padua and Venice 2015

So the last travel post was about Turin, after which we drove all the way to Padua and after roaming around at night, eating ice cream  we came back to Tulip Inn, our hotel in Padua. After the complimentary breakfast, we set out to visit San Antonio's shrine, the shrine where the tomb of St. Antony is located. We celebrated mass in an adjoining chapel there,  We weren't allowed to take pictures in the main shrine, but I surreptitiously managed to take this one. After walking around and praying in this huge church, we then went to the shrine shop. Among all the places we visited, the stuff I've seen at the Padua shrine shop, is really good. One of the best places to shop for souvenirs, everything is so pretty and well made. I had visited Padua in 2013 with Antonio and Nameeta, and Antonio picked up a really cool looking black ring with the Our Father inscribed on it in Latin...
He rarely wears it, so I started wearing it...
Picked up this cream and chapstick at the Padua …
