Feels good to be me....

Thanks to my boss, I haven't been writing here regularly... usually I blog when I have time to spare at work. What with work being so hectic and then coming back home being euphoric, I haven't had time to spare on the blog. Wanted to write about a lot of things from Obama to Kasav to the Chris Parent/Chris Child game that we played at work. Will stick to the wedding for now though...
Weddings are great if it's not yours and if you happen to be a girl, you get to shop and dress up and then walk around organising and having fun. You don't have to worry about whether this marriage will last or dread leaving your home and staying with a bunch of strangers...
Anyway, I had a lot of fun at this wedding... here are a few pictures ...
Vinod gave us all an awesome surprise by turning up just in time for the wedding...
It felt great to be back with the entire family...
This guy was so funny at the wedding... was so happy to see him havig fun and being himself.

This is how my brothers cut the birthday cake...

Bringing the bride home...

All set to welcome the Year 2009...

Taken after the New Year's Mass... (This method of photography was Nam's brilliant idea. Every time I come down here she finds a new way to pose for the camera...)
Here we are with the cousins...
Here are a few other picutures that I like...
The Bombay gang... only Tina could make it for the wedding, missed the other guys. Grandma was very happy to see all her kids...

All the cousins's at the birthday party...

Welcoming the bride, check out those flower girls, they were so pretty...

All the cousins...
All the weddings he goes to, Manoj takes a picture like this...
Isn't this neat? I like these intricate designs...

The book of life has passed on, look at them... each telling the other to open it. The cousins have started a great tradition, we (Tonio & me) received this book first, then it passed on to Tina & Jaison... now Manoj & Linda have to start their own discovery. Any idea, who's gonna get it next?

hahahaha.. Tina, Thank You.useless female! and organizing you did cause you appointed yourself the wedding planner..in Manoj's very own words "Kavitha please, you're only the wedding planner.. not life planner."
Hey Mazhalai, wishing you a great year too. Hope you had as much fun as I had. I can't seem to get out of the fun/home mood, work seems to drag after this long holiday I spent at home.

Tina, nice picture. Yeah, those guys crack me up, they just stabbed the cake. Anyway, let anybody get the book, as long as there is another wedding and I get to party again!

Nam, Manoj sure is funny, but I bet I would make a good life planner too...

The Danny effect and the Cooper effect

With all the free time I have now (thanks to Cooper) I thought of writing something here.  This is Cooper, a friend's dog, and whenever I go home to Nagercoil, we generally hang out together, talking and taking Cooper for long walks in the colony. This time was no different, we were on our walk when this stray little street dog started barking and I was holding cooper's leash... my hand in that loop when Cooper suddenly became way excited than usual and took off after the stray like Flash on steroids. He dragged me along and I couldn't keep up; I stumbled, fell on the bad road and bruised myself.  And since I had nothing better to do, I made a collage of the wounds to send to my sister... who found it hilarious that I fell. So anyway, went to the doc, got my tetanus shot and now I'm just taking it easy for the next few days. And one person has been constantly on my mind since this incident, Danny.

I met Danny about 12 years ago in Santhi Nilayam, the special school I …

Hair messed up

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…
