I physically, emotionally & psychologically hate them!

I really really hate creeps like this... they bring out the worst in me. Poor Tonio gets a earful when I see these loathsome creatures at home. I rant and rave and cry and scream and generally curse the people who cross my path. And if they give me some lecture bout how these disgusting reptiles keep the house clean by eating other insects, I lose it... big time. I mean if you like them so much, please feel free to cultivate them in the sanctity of your own bedroom. Times like this, I wonder how Jeff Corwin would have gotten along with me... I always tell Tonio that if I hadn't married him I would have married Jeff Corwin, and knowing Jeff Corwin (not that I really know him) he wouldn't like to see any creature (no matter how despicably ugly) treated with contempt and intense hatred.
Here they are having some sort of a sick family conference in the kitchen. When will they become extinct?


I was just googling after reading this and I realised there is a movie called

Egad. What are they? They certainly are, er, startling! Especially those glowing eyes...

Anju said…
Those look really gross! I don't like them either but I don't curse that much... I save my curses for flying insects!
Saj, Tonio, whatever.

Beth, those are ordinary house lizards and they freak me out. Their eyes don't really glow though, its the camera's effect... nevertheless they are definitely evil.

Anju, yeah I know your fear of flying insects... but you can easily swat them to death. These creeps aren't easy to kill, Tonio's dad catches them in his hand and takes them outside... I am in awe of him.

I don't know shil, big dogs may be scary... but puppies are cute. Anyway, I do know your lasting fear for canine creatures and I will strive to slowly ease the fear away. I would want this lizard hatred to go too in me...
Yeah, Tonio's dad catches huge ones (I mean really huge) in his hand, its actually cool.

EEEEEEWWWW! Those are the UGLIEST things I have seen today!!!

Oh my gawd! I hate these ugly things too!! It's like I have a phobia or something....thank god there is at least one more person who reacts like me to these totally unnecessary creatures....

I don't even know what is their actual purpose on this earth, other than to bring about stomach-churning nausea in me...YUCK and YUCKKKKK!

Okay...i gotta go throw up now!!

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…

A Corpse in the Ground

Avila and Fatima

The next day after an early breakfast we set out to visit Avila, which is about an hour's drive from Madrid.
A video of the landscape in Spain... Here, we've just reached Avila... these Walls of Avila were completed between the 11th and 14th centuries and they are the city's defining image. We had a lovely guide, Maria, and she took us around this quaint city explaining about the fortress and the cathedrals.
Another video depicting the welcoming sounds of Avila... the constantly chirping birds over the walled city of Avila are quite captivating, they seem to beckon you in. Avila's charm...  The sun, spilling her beams... 
The church of St. Teresa of Avila Inside the church, mass was just getting over... The chapel dedicated to St. Teresa
The main square in Avila
So after checking out the church of St. Teresa and the museum where her finger is displayed, we started on our way to Fatima in Portugal which is about a five hour drive from Avila.

Stopped on the way to have a …
