[Humor]~10 reasons why I love to hate my In-laws! ;)

I’m a newly married bride. I had a love marriage, so no matter what, I’ve to say that I love my husband. My MIL is very sweet, so says my husband. When in front of MIL, my FIL demonstrates the world famous characteristic of our Prime Minister – Muteness.
Now coming to the point, 10 reasons why I love to hate my in-laws:
1. They love my husband more than me.
2. They expect me and not my husband to bear them a grandchild.
3. Though I hate to sleep within closed enclosures, they expect me to get beyond my bedroom door and lock it past twilight (you know, to achieve #2). Yes, I need to take my husband with me too.
4. My husband and his parents love to drink innumerable cups of filter coffee, but hate to prepare those themselves. Though I hate to drink that brown liquid, I happen to take (read: get) orders.
5. They consider me just like their own daughter, the one they never had.
6. They see to it that I wear every available accessory to showcase that I’m married to their son, all the time. Also, I got to tag his name behind mine, officially. However, all this isn’t applicable to him.
7. I hate the daily soaps on Television. My MIL loves to watch those and if I don’t sit with her, she makes it a point to update me. Even FIL isn’t spared, for my humor.
8. They give me every opportunity to bit*h about them.
9. I’m an atheist. However, my MIL takes me to every damn temple on every damn street of this city to pray for that one and only one thing (#2).
10. I can’t be open about how I feel about them even on Facebook, for my in-laws are active (more than me) on that freaking social site!

[Poetry]~I’ve got this curly mop of hair…

I’ve got this curly mop of hair
to maintain how, I was unaware…
It made me feel like a grizzly bear
crushing all dreams of my being debonair!

I would be devastated, to find my hair
fallen on the floor, here and there…
And then I’d see more of it on the bed
instead of just sitting tight on my head!

Friends said, ‘Even Sachin has a curly mop of hair’
but I know maintaining it like him was a costly affair,
for he’s super rich & got that god-gifted talent
while all I can do is envy him and simply lament!

I wish there was an andriod app
which would cover my head in every pic with a cap!
There is a FB app to check out the futuristic look
I came all bald in that, so had to logout of Facebook!
I wonder if there is any such software…
That would treat me all fair and square!

Well, then I googled, “Hair, how to repair?”
and the search engine was kind enough to share,
the secrets that would get me out of despair,
with promises to nourish it with utmost care!

For weeks, I followed the instructions at every wash…
Enhanced with Vita-Oils, it seemed to glow all posh…
The curly mop was now smooth and easy to manage…
The birdy shampoo as promised, made it resilient to damage!

So what now?
Yes, I’ve still got this curly mop of hair
to maintain how, I am all aware!
It makes me feel soft like a teddy bear,
Smooth and handsome, with dreams of being debonair!!! 😀

I’ve been using Dove products, for close to six years now and when I saw this contest on Indiblogger, I just jumped in to participate!! So this is my entry to Indiblogger’s “Love is a two way street: Love your hair and it loves you back!” contest!! 🙂

[SMS Learnings]: Short texts, Falling terribly short of Learnings!! ;)

This is a very serious post. If you feel like laughing, smiling or even giggling do it right now and please control your urge (to laugh/smile/giggle that is) once you start reading past –> THIS.

Recently I was speaking..nah, actually I was text-ing a friend about all the things in the world when I found something she said to be very romantic (now I know you are thinking, ‘he talks only about such things’ and laugh…but pls, don’t do it!!!). She would have talked something about the hissing sound that snake makes when we pinch its behind, but I replied with a “Uff…so romantic”!! 🙄

After a dead silence of about 2 mins, my cell phone beeped again. It was her reply saying “Waz romantic abt tat? Temme 1 thing which u’ll not find romantic!! :x”…her anger expressing reply burnt my fingers much more than concentrated sulphuric acid would probably have. Immediately I put on my thinking hat. 😀

Yes I need to put on my thinking hat, else there’s no possibility of a thinking and me (don’t laugh at facts, pls don’t do it!!!). If you ask me how and why, you probably don’t know the real me (not that a virtual me is any better!!!). Anyways…putting on my thinking hat, I thought for a while about the things that were not so romantic. There were no results coming from the hat. Absolutely nothing, was not romantic. Not wasting any further time, I replied “Well…there’s nothing not so romantic. Romance is in everything. It’s not what it is, but it’s how you feel it is! :)” (Yes, I write unadulterated English in my text messages…don’t laugh!!!).

And then there was no reply for a while. As I thought:
– Maybe she’s thinking deeply about what I just sent her.
– Maybe she’s confirming with her friends about it.
– Maybe she found all that I said, to be romantic,
my cell beeped again.

When I read the reply, it so seemed that I wasn’t thinking on the same lines as she was. She replied with a “R u alrite? Waz wit dis phlsphy? Hw cn thr b romance in everythin? Do u say d same thin 2 al d gals? No wondr ne singleton seldom tlks 2 u after a while. Is tht some kinda pick-up line? OMG…WT* made u thnk thr’s romance in everythin? Go eat somethin n zzzz.”
And over the years, I have come to understand that when a gal talks or texts or even signals you (if in person, through her lovely eyes) in such a tone – it’s better not to say anything more, but agree with her. But then some people never learn, do they? 😛

One out of those few careless people, is right here authoring this very post. I should have replied “Errr…ok…let me explain it to you some other time. For now, goodnight and sleep well 🙂 ” but hell no!!!! I replied with a “Dinner is cooking…so it will take time for me to go eat and sleep. Why do you think this is philosophy? Not that I don’t say this to all the gals but no re…this isn’t my pick up line!!! :O I thought you…blah blah…” only to get no more replies from her. I should have kept quiet, but no…I still had some free messages left from my daily quota. So I sent her a “Did you sleep? Why no reply? Are you angry with me or something?” .This was the final nail in the coffin. She never replied, ever again.

Now what did I (un)learn from this?

Well…I learnt:
a. Not to bother about finishing my daily quota of free text messages.
b. Not to ask if she was angry, when I knew she was very angry. Especially not, when I know she’s angry cos of me.
c. That “go eat somethin and zzzz” means she doesn’t expect any reply from me, except maybe a courtesy-wala “goodnight” message.
d. Not to force her to reply by asking “Why no reply?”…she will reply if she wants to. Period.
e. Not to say something so repetitively that it seems like a “pick up” line. Sigh!!
f. Basically nothing!! Mistakes happen, repetitively!! 😛

No better job…

One of the searches in my blog stats:

“Aishwarya + “sleeping with” + Amitabh”

Now isn’t this priceless. 😉

ROFL…must be some dumb idiotic genius who couldn’t sleep well or had hearts for Abhishek (and wants him to have a break-up, by hook or crook)! 😀

No guesses from my side though, for this query…who cares if its true or not, whatever it is, we’ll get to know in the “year 2050” as history will speak for itself then!!! 😉

Yesssss….I have been Taaaaagged!!!!!! :)

This word scares the shit outta me…Getting tagged by someone gives the feeling of being offered a complimentary noose just before one is hanged down the gallows!! But when I got this one from Sanket, I was quite suprised to see a simple one being offered to be taken to care of!!
Yesssss….I have been Taaaaagged!!!!!! 😀

Here are the 5 simple rules of the tag:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge the person who tagged you.

And here is what I can offer (no no, I didn’t find the KS…someone flicked it with permission! ;)) you guys:

***He and Baba kissed on the cheek and he shook my hand with both of his. “Best of luck with the writing,” he said, looking me in the eye. His pale blue eyes revealed nothing of the thoughts behind them.***

The above excerpt is from Khaled Hosseini‘s “The Kite Runner“…Being a slow reader, I had not yet reached the page numbered 123 of this book. This tag made me break a rule of peeping into the future!! 😉
This book was presented to me by a good friend who became so engrossed into the lives of Amir and Hassan (the main characters in this book) that she is now a die-hard fan of Khaled Hosseini!! I have unconditionally loved it till the point where my book-mark stands now and I hope to reach its climax very soon!! 😀

Well to carry on the tag, I pass the baton to the following bloggers – whom I follow:
1) Sow
2) Sujatha
3) Jass
4) Pavithra
5) AKB

Guys…just do it!! 😉
