A tickin’ and a tockin’

Most of the times I feel about New Years like this:

1?

But then instantly, I have a regret, a guilt for being so pessimistic and my thought turns to something like this:

2!

I mean I have done it wrong, year after year, only trying, or rather barely trying to make things better, to improve myself. And year after year, I am barely floating above the level, but I am still there, trying. So why not this year too? (Not that I have a choice not to try)

So, I think and think more, which is what I am really a master at and decide that let what’s gone, go and welcome what wants to come. Instead of merging past, present and future, and struggling to barely keep up, I decide to just breathe. Peace is all I want, now. Lat year, had been too much of a roller coaster for me, nothing I could not handle, but given the chance I would have liked to dodge that bullet! But now all’s in the past, and I have never really looked up to New Years as I am looking up for this one. Nothing awaits me, not that I know of, but I am hoping against hope, that it would be a slightly better year than the last one.

last

So, I am really not fretting over my past, not worrying about my future, all I want to do right now is, live in the moment, hoping against all hopes that things will turn out as they should be. (Because clearly however much I kick around in the air some things are really not under my control).

So, wishing all the lovely people around here, a very peaceful and a bright new year.

PS: As I write this down, Mr. Coffee hater is persistently cooing at me, wanting all the attention that I was clearly devoting to my computer. And just as I take the shot below, he winks at me, flutters his wing, and soars away! The attention seeker that he is!! Ufff…

So what books are you getting me this year, Santa?

Santa: Really, books again?

IMG_2979.png

Yes! Yes! Yes!!!!

Santa: You are crazy…

Koi shakh?

Santa: What?

You really need to work on your Hindi. It’s been so many years and still you don’t get me..

Santa: Because all you ever talk about is books..

If that is the case, then tell me what am I getting this year?

IMG_2894.png

But when was I bad, like ever??????? In fact things that you kept sending my way all year long were bad….

IMG_2895.png

Come on Santaaaaaa, please? (Puppy faces here) I wasn’t bad, really….

IMG_2896.png

Santa: Okay fine, I will not give you gift myself but I could at least make sure that you get what you want from someone else. But you can forget getting those wonderful gifts from me. Uh-huh..

Yay.. yay… yayyyyy……..

Santa: Now shut up and tell me what do you need?

BOOOOKKKKSSSSSSSS

IMG_2858.png

Woooooaaaaahhhhhhh! Calm down Sir. No needs for the guns..

Santa: TELL ME IF YOU HAVE READ YOUR TBR PILE?

Wow, you know what’s a TBR?

Santa: I guess, I know almost everything about books, thanks to you.

Oh, come on! Don’t even mention it. ye to mera farz tha…

Santa: Farz my foot!

Hey you did get my Hindi this time.

Santa: (Thinking) Oh just forget it..

So back to my books.

Santa: No way darling! You have probably more books than you can read all year long. All you ever ask from anyone for any event is books. Birthdays is for books, anniversaries is for books, even if someone gets you something you get it exchanged for books. You even buy anything for yourself, it’s all books. I am done with your bookish tantrums now! Anything else you want?

Santa, please?

Santa: Don’t please me with that batting of eyes.

Please?

Santa: Anything else?

 

 

IMG_2487.png

Santa: Now really, anything else except for your stupid books and bookish fantasies?

You didn’t say that. TAKE IT BACK!!

Santa: HO HO HO…

Take it back..

HO. HO. HO… HO… (Vanishes into thin air………)

I HATE YOU SANTA (I cry into the nothingness)

*

Well, as I say this I truly don’t hate Santa, because today has been nothing but wonderful day. Below are my Christmas presents, (one of them is by me to me because for a second I really thought that Santa was serious).

SANTA………….. I LOVE YOU

And also, One book came all the way from a very stupid, but a very kind and happy go lucky person, who lives miles away from me. So, Aditi from https://motmagiques.wordpress.com needs a special mention here, for a very wonderful and magical Christmas gift.

Thank you, thank you, thank you all, (Yeah, right thank you to Santa too. And I think I’ll try to control my bitchy side to avoid this rattle with you next year.)

Till then Merry Christmas 😀

Understand life!

 

 

“Sometimes you just need to talk to a four year old and an eighty-four year old to understand life again.”

 

Any volunteers in throwing some insight on the thing called “life”? 😉

Lemon- Lemonade Situation!

“When life throws you a rainy day, play in the puddles.”

But what if it’s a rainy season? And it prolongs to a rainy winter?

 

Or it’s fine with me if you are the lemon and lemonade type of person too just don’t bother with the rainy season then because yo have so many other hilarious options. Really, you do. See for yourself:

They forget that you probably don’t have that kind of money for the surgery!!

Okay, this one I probably agree with them 😀

Again, I never learnt how to bail exactly. If I knew I’d be dodging those lemons in the first place.

So, it all comes back to square one. What do you do?

As I said, I’d rather prefer the rainy day situation, since I am such a nature person. So when life gives me that rainy year, what the hell am I supposed to do with it. I am drenched to the core now!!

 

One Big Happy Family #6

You might not remember them, but my one big happy family still enjoys their happy ever after. Oh they are so happy that they are on a vacation!! The only problem is I didn’t know about this vacation, which is why I was so restless when I didn’t see them for quite some time.

 

As it happens, my dear blogger friend sends me their whereabouts telling me that they are safe and happy, enjoying their time without me 😉

 

How could they?????? Without me?????? Oh, the horror!!!!

 

Who cares? Let them go. I don’t even need them anymore; I have that stupid Mr. coffee hater now! Let them fly away to that city of dreams. They will not find an admirer like me there. And will have to fly back here just as soon.

I wasn’t even missing them much when I saw them back again, near my place right the next day..

And I am assuming that stupid carefree one big happy family will live happily ever after right in front of me, 😉 Ab kya kare subah ka bhooola sham ko ghar aye to use shayad bhoola nahi kehte..

 

PS: Thank you Sifar for bringing this picture to my notice, otherwise I wouldn’t even know about the doings of this crazy family that kept going behind my back. And also get well soon, WordPress misses you Sifar.

Also his click looks way better than any of my clicked pictures.

If there is any rarest possibility that you want to know more about this crazy happy ever after (which I highly doubt) here you go-

One Big Happy Family.

 

Happy Diwali!

A very Happy Diwali to all my fellow blogger friends.

img_2304.jpg

Lighten up your hearts,

Open up your minds,

Be a little more kind.

 

Share the smiles,

Embrace this life,

And be a little more kind.

 

Not just on the day of this festival

Not just on any special occasion,

All year long,

Just be a little more kind

To yourself,

And to all the other people around.

 

This is my motto, my belief, in trying to better myself.

 

Once again a very Happy Diwali to all you lovely people. And yeah yeah, all that prosperity and wealth and happiness too.

Mr. Coffee Hater- My New Friend!

Hey guys, I have a new friend. Well, to be honest we have met only a few days back but we seem to hit it off.

This new friend comes and visits me often these days, as often as almost everyday, precisely at the same time. We sit in my room’s balcony; have a cup of coffee and talk. And to be honest, he isn’t a big fan of coffee (disappointed) so I have coffee and we both talk. I think I might have begun to like his company a little bit. My mom says this is temporary! This is nonsense! I am definitely appalled at her for saying this but how can I express the amount of affinity I share with this new friend. This is just beyond her grasp.

So today, I am having my coffee and I was just about to send this friend on a guilt trip for not showing up on time, when suddenly from nowhere he barged into my space and landed in front of me.

“So how are you today?” he asks me.

“I think I am good.”

“Oh, you and your thinking.” He rolls his eyes at me.

What! What am I suppose to say?

“How are you, if I may ask?” I ask anyway.

“I am awesome as always!!”

Of course you are.

“And what brings you here today?” I ask adamantly.

“Precisely nothing. I just though I should stop by since I was visiting near by.”

“Oh you and your thinking!” I mimic.

“What now? Thinking is only your job or what?”

“Nah. You could try that too, but I don’t think you will master it as much as I can.”

“Fair point well made Miss Moushmi.”

“Now will you tell me what exactly are you doing here? Visiting me almost everyday, at the same time, never really doing anything?”

“Will you tell me what exactly are you doing here, same time, everyday? He counter-attacks.

“Ummmm, I think you forget, this is my house, my room, my balcony, my coffee!!!” I almost want to scream.

“So?”

Oh my God! Look at the horror that this little man throws upon me. What do you mean so? I mean I am almost expected to be in my house. I don’t have to take permission form anyone for that. And in contrast I certainly have a right to ask for his reasons of visiting. Seriously, though what does he think of himself!

 

“I am just asking what brings you here?”

“You.”

“Yeah, but you come here everyday, you sit and you fight with me and then leave. You have never told me the exact purpose of your visit. I don’t even know your name.”

“So you can ask me my name.”

“And you think you will answer that?”

“What makes you think I won’t?”

“The fact that I have repeatedly asked you your reason of visiting me, but you won’t open your filthy mouth on that.”

“Yeah but my filthy mouth will definitely want to tell you my name.”

“What’s stopping you?”
“The fact that you haven’t exactly asked.”

Uuuuurrrgggggghhhhhhhhh!!

“I will ask you just after you tell me the reason for your 6th visit in the 6th day of knowing you.”

“Are we still on that?”

“Apparently!”

“Okay, I think it’s time to go.”

“But where are you going? My coffee isn’t over yet.”

“Then drink your damn coffee and let me watch you drink it.”

“The coffee isn’t damned!! How could you…..”

“Yeah, yeah, I still don’t find any good reason in drinking that strong cup. I threw it out of my mouth the first time I tasted it.”

“Yeah I remember that, it wasn’t exactly too long ago.” I remember our first meeting where I couldn’t stop laughing at his reaction in tasting coffee for the first time. That was my first in meeting someone who had never tasted coffee!! DUH…

“So, now if you are done with your coffee, I think I should go. I have better things to do.”

“Like what? And I literally don’t remember inviting you here.”

“Well, I invited myself.”

“Then deport yourself too.”

“I will!!”

“What’s stopping you?”

“You damned coffee.”

“You’d be happy to know, the cup is empty now.”

“Seriously though, you waste a lot of time drinking that.”

“How does it bother you?”

“Fair point well made.” He retorts.

“I know.”

“Now really, I should get going.” He insists.

“Try and be stopped.”

“Yeah, yeah, I am leaving.”

I am waiting for him to leave.

“By the way you seriously are not interested in knowing my name, are you?”

“I am. But you won’t say.”

“You won’t ask. Then how can I tell you my name?” he complains!!!

Oh my god, and I still like his visits?

“Okay, then will you please tell me your name?” I ask too pleadingly, with all smiles and politeness.

“Of course.”

WHAT!!!!!

“But for now it’s time to go.” He adds. And then just as swiftly he had come, he flies away and vanishes into thin air.

 

This, this new friend of mine? Doesn’t even like getting clicked. I somehow managed to get a nice shot. I am introducing you guys to him as Mr. Coffee Hater. Be my guest; judge him all you want, I don’t care, because he is just so adamant with me. He gets into my nerves and is so, so irritating at times. And yet I like his visits? I must be losing my mind!!

 

Anyways, here he is, with his roguish charms.

Until we meet again 😀

Take Care.
