Make Me Happy

I could have got married 8 years ago, but I chickened out. I don't know if the other involved party occasionally feels the deep twinges of regret that I do (especially after a 14-15 hour day), but everything considered, I would not have changed even one thing about my life. Today happens to be a 13 hour day (Yipppeee!) and so, I still have the strength to make a list of the tiny joys that made me contented in the last few months -
  1. A chilled bottle of champagne
  2. The season's first mangoes
  3. World space radio
  4. My nephew's antics
  5. Orient Express (Full review coming up - and if you are in Calcutta and don't know about this, you don't know what you are missing!)
  6. Advertising Club Membership discount at a number of my fav restaurants
  7. Body shop almond body scrub
  8. Youtube
  9. My new high, high, high shoes
  10. Air Conditioning


The Times They Are A-Changin'

I have been so very, very busy, I could not blog. Sad! Anyway, I hope to make up for lost time.

Whoever, would have thought, they'd give Bob Dylan a Pulitzer? I atleast stuck to him, even when it wasn't fashionable to. I just hope he doesn't kick the bucket before I can see him.

I am baffled by my apparently good friends who get married and don't think it fit to inform me, leave alone invite me. Has happened twice this year! I would have felt worse, if other people in my gang were invited, but they too were not. I'm sure my spinsterhood would not cast a shadow on their lives. Anyway! Such is life. One lives and learns.

Another thing that really annoys me is how after marriage, women adopt their husbands friends as their own and ignore their friends until their husbands cheat on them or they separate or get divorced. I have few friends who have not done this, and every time any of my still single friend ties the knot, in my heart, I bid her a fond farewell.
