I Know I Am Growing Older When...

  1. I remember reading when Mithun's son was born, and the reasoning behind his asinine name.
  2. Having clothes that were in fashion a long, long time ago - wide belts, skinny jeans.
  3. My cousin, who I thought was young and hip starts turning 50 and the other one turns 40. No! No! Life, where have you slipped away?
  4. I look down snootily on drama queens and fire them without remorse.


Why I Should Have High Self Esteem

1. I am actually pretty darn good at my job/s/s/s/s.
2. People who scare people do not scare me and are my er... admirers.
3. I can be a good finisher, down to the smallest detail. This makes me happy, because 5 years ago, I was crappy at finishing.
4. During crises, I do not lose my cool, though I lose my cool very often at silly, stupid things, especially regarding point 2.
5. I can make sensible decisions and have people follow me whenever I wish.
6. I do not shy from leadership, in fact I rather enjoy it.
7. I am mostly confident.
8. I am not as ugly as I thought I was.

Checkpoint Chamia - Because Why Should Cocktails Not Have Indian Names?

Last Summer, I was in Berlin. This summer too I will be in Berlin, for a week, working my ass off. I took a picture that I liked a lot. I described it to V.

In summers, I need lime, lemons and lemony drinks. I want all my drinks to have a twist of lime, if possible. Also, I made up a new cocktail and I wanted a new name. According to V, why should Cocktails not have Indian Names? Indeed, why not? V named this one and the name kind of grew on me.

Checkpoint Chamia

Absolut Citron
Lime or lemon juice

Mix and match to the strength you want. Me, I like mine with LOTS of limoncello and lime juice...

  • Does Saif actually look like a tea drinker?
  • Does Juhi actually eat kurkure?
  • Is Customer support actually like a faithful pug?
  • Vidya, aren't you glad to see Madhavan finally go for his goddamned tour, so you can go back to reading your MBs?
  • Does Kareena really use Vivel? (What a Vile name!)

All Coming Back To Me Now

I went for my eye check-up last week. Turns out my power has dropped 0.5 degrees for both my eyes. I truly appreciate the power of sight, now that every thing seems clearer and I don't need to squint at the monitor.

To celebrate my clear sight, I got a pair of retro frames!
