I'm all spruced up..Mm mm oh, oh, yeah, yeah!

Title- to be sung in tune to 'All shook up' by Duh!

Ah..the perfect time to write a post, while sitting and soaking your feet in warm soapy water at the salon..but I've got to admit that typing a post out on the cell is certainly what I cut it out to be..PAINFUL! know I've never gotten the whole spa massage thing..somehow having a person you barely know dig their fingers into your back for an hour doesn't exactly appeal to me..same goes for the pedicure I'm having right now, I've half to mind to tell her to stop massaging my feet but the fact that I've already paid for it stops me. ( Yeah I'm a miser, big surprise!)

A couple of minutes ago, there were these two kids here who decided to entertain themselves while waiting for their mothers to finish up with their various beauty treatments by standing a foot away from me and staring at me..made me feel like an alien..I didn't know that kids have that effect on people..I mean I've felt that way many times courtesy the variety of snobs and bitches of Chennai but never by a couple of kids..I tried smiling at them, but they had apparently picked the perfect time to listen to their parents' 'never-talk-to-or-smile-at-strangers' rule.

Things have finally settled down in my life..made up with a friend with whom I have this love/hate relationship, launched the designs site which is doing pretty well, I might add...leaving on a trip tonight..took a quiz in the current issue of Femina which confirmed any false notion that I had about myself being a free bird! So I guess I'm least for the next couple of weeks ..hopefully I'll be able to discover a bit of myself on this trip..yea, that's probably wishful thinking but you cant blame me for wanting to start on the road to self discovery this early in life right?

Oooh, gotta go...time to pick a shade of nail polish...always the best part of a pedi, ain't it..?!

Its finally done..!!!

Ok..I'm officially done..! Not done as in done with it period, but done as in done with it, as for now..!! Can you tell how excited I am or just how relieved I am that I finally figured it all out..?! Anyway..if you're wondering what the hell I'm talking about...shame on you ( no I'm kidding, I don't expect people to obsessively read my blog and memorize every sordid detail of my life) but if you have been reading, then you probably know that I was supposed to be opening up a design site..!! Well, I did and its finally over..and this is the post where I'm supposed to officially launch it. Hmmm..not sure I sound too official or formal..maybe putting on a pair of linen pants rather these ripped jeans I've been living in for the past two days would help..! If you guys are cringing, save it...'gross' me is just beginning for the season..!

Anyway..without further ado (see..told you I could do formal..!) , I present you.............

*pulls blue satin cloth off the computer screen, with a flourish*


Check the site out people..check out all the sidebar links too, click on every little thing that is clickable...ppppllleeaaassee......

And..spread the word around..I'm offering custom templates too, so go check out my first custom which I did for Michelle. Also look at the FAQ's and the About Me page on the site. that's it for the official launch, I better get to bed, Its exactly 6:21 in the morning and I need to get my 8 hours. So I'll see you at 2 in the afternoon...or probably 3..lets reserve an hour for the grogginess, shall we?

WARNING: The inability to string various events of the past week together to form one coherent post has pushed me to resort to using bullets today.
  • Contrary to what I earlier thought about being absolutely jobless this summer, I'm so 'crazy' busy,its not funny..!!! Aargh..I'm just waiting for a moment of peace...and get this..I'm not busy doing stuff for myself but I'm busy doing stuff for other people. Yeah, I'm selfless like that. ;)
  • I miss my computer,I miss my blog..and I miss my TV and I miss alot of other things..But I'll be back my beloved appliances (and the online mirror of my thoughts) without you all is turning out to be harder than I thought :(
  • Ohh..guess what..??! I'm going to Sri Lanka for a holiday..!!! Yayness..!! Cant wait to leave..!! Katta Sambol and Odel, here I come..!!
  • When I was in the fifth grade I broke a portion of my two front teeth due to my mother's excessive love of horror movies..! (Believe me its a story you don't want to hear) Anyway, I had gotten my teeth fixed twice that year because I broke it the first time they were done up and me being me, I broke them yet again..! So my mum told me that the next time she would fix them would probably be before I got married....but, in spite of no marriage plans even remotely in the near future, I got them fixed AGAIN yesterday..!! Ok..but thats only half of the story..When the dentist finished I was scared to look into the mirror and look at them, I had actually forgotten how I used to look with decent teeth and the entire prospect of a new look for the whities was in reality a little scary even though I was really excited about them. Ok..ramble alert..better stop now. Shit, almost forgot..the best part was that no one even noticed them and when I pointed them out to everyone, they were like "huh,what was wrong with your teeth to begin with"....Well nothing, you people who call yourselves my friends, other than the fact that you could shove two straws through the very noticeable hole which made me look like a vampire at some angles..!!
  • I've never liked rain my entire life, the whole idea of getting wet and getting all dirty and muddy never ever appealed to me...expect this Friday. Chennai was surprised with a sudden downpour while I was on my bike, riding home and it was the first time where I couldn't be bothered if I got wet..and when I did finally get wet..I felt free..i don't know why but it was like something had unleashed itself inside of me and I felt actually free. I'm doing an incredibly sucky job at trying to describe what happened so I'm just gonna say that it was a feeling I rarely feel so it made it all the more wonderful..!
  • Some people need to learn to not be so needy..! I'm a very private person, even though I try to bare all here..I essentially like being by myself and I like having my own space..but i have this friend who has to have people around her at all times..She just has to..she has to have people around her at all times as much as I need my space, which is really frustrating..considering the fact that this friend happens to be one of my best friends which does not make this situation easy to deal with..! most of the week was spent trying to find a mere second of alone time to recharge my sanity cells.
  • EDITED TO ADD: Also went for Ocean's 13 this week..was pretty awesome I must say..but when I tried to remember what happened in the prequel I kept mixing it up with the Italian Job and Bourne Identity, so I was pretty damn confused by the end of it. And...I went for JRO (June Rock Out- supposedly India's mega rock fest!) on Saturday..but the sad part of that was that I went really I only got to watch two pathetic bands which was really pissing off cause we had the leave before we could watch the band that we went to watch in the first place..! For all you chick-flick lovers...Because I said so is a pretty good watch so try to catch it. Oh my god..cant believe I forgot to tell you people that I watched the movie that everybody is talking about..Sivaji..!! Went on the first day, the movie wasn't all that great but it was definitely was a visual extravaganza..I mean you should watch it just to marvel at the amount that the producers probably spent on the sets!
  • Happy belated Father's Day DADU....!! I love you...!!! (ya I know you probably wont read this, but this is for if you ever do, even though I really really hope you don't)
Yes so that's the round up...the very unattractive slacker blogger status is creeping up on me again and the Lanka trip isn't going to help that one bit, so I'm going to be a good blogger from now on and post whenever I can..expect for the 10 days that I wont be in the country. OOh.."10 days that I wont be in the country" sounds very alluring all of a sudden.

Joy from a bottle

No..not that kind of bottle..!

The weirdest thing happened to me today, isn't entirely weird considering the fact that I was the protagonist in this little scene, but anyway...was rummaging through the kitchen cabinets today when I found a kids water bottle. It was one of those water bottles that say kids who are like four or five would was pink with a yellow base and a blue cap..and when u opened the cap a little straw popped up..!! (Oh..and it had two bears on the front...! )

Anyway, I found the bottle and the first thing I felt was pure joy...I kid you not people..I looked at the bottle and I was happy..for what reason I have absolutely no clue but I couldn't help but look at that bottle with this five year old look of glee on my face...!! I'm 18 for heavens sake, I'm supposed to be that happy just by looking at a bottle of booze but NO instead I apparently am more than joyful over a mere water bottle for kids..!! Go figure..!! I filled it up with water and actually sipped up the entire contents through the cute little straw and after that I was happier (if that was even possible)....!!! I was completely satisfied , like a little child who had just finished his business for the day on the potty and who was extremely pleased with himself..!!!

I'm the kind of person who gets these cheap thrills out of the stupidest of things, say by blowing bubbles or bursting a blown up plastic bag or sitting on a balloon, so..I'm not especially surprised by this little episode that happened today..but still..I find that I never fail to amaze myself with what a kid I am sometimes..!!

Plain and simple Joblessness.

Its been awhile since I've posted and to tell you the truth, I didn't post because i really didn't feel like it. Actually I guess it was because i couldn't find anything to say, not like the best selling writer in me has anything much to say at this moment in time...but just the thought of my blog looking abandoned pushed me to do what I'm doing right now.

I'm pretty jobless this summer, its weird having so much of time on your hands when all throughout the year you would've killed for a single moment of well...joblessness ( yes, i make up my own words and no I'm not crazy..Ok maybe a little,but I'm well within the acceptable range )
Ok..I'm bored and blogger for the first time isn't helping me curb the boredom so I'm gonna go and hope and pray that tomorrow I can come up with something less excruciatingly painful to read in here.

In other news..the design site is coming along nicely and will be making its debut hopefully next week...See you guys at the grand opening..!! :)

Exposed..!! for this post..I've decided to just write or rather type whatever comes to my I'm guessing that this will probably be the random-est post of all..I know that random-est isn't exactly a word..but that's the fun bit of blogging isn't one can actually punish u for making up your own words. Are there any words that you guys use that aren't actual words..I've said 'cleant' for 'cleaned' for as long as I can remember..and even though people keep pointing out my mistake..I keep saying it cause I think that 'cleant' actually sounds a billion times better than 'cleaned'..which reminds me that I haven't 'cleant' my room in ages..!! (And its pronounced 'clent' and not 'clean-t') . I have this habit of pulling all of my clothes off the shelves of my cupboard..picking out what I want to wear off the floor and stuffing the rest back most often than not a few clothes always get left behind on the floor..and I,being the epitome of laziness never bother to move my ass and pick them my room always tends to look messy even if its not..! Hmmm...I'm rambling........

A few days ago...a friend of mine..told me that I was a 'VERY CITRUS' that coincidence or what..considering the fact that none of my friends know about this blog or know that my pseudonym is lemonade...!! So I guess that I'm kinda on track with the 'trying-to-see-myself-as-others-see-me' plan...don't laugh, that's an actual technique to discovering your inner self..well actually not...but whatever...

I'm in a mad mood right now...but i'm also kinda sleepy....(note to self : see this is what happens when you decide to just type without using your brain..!!)

Sorry for being such a boring blogger to make up for's a picture of the spirit of 'exposing myself' that kind of exposing you perv....sheesh..some people,I tell you..!! (See...I really am in a mad mood..!!)

Yup..thats me..Shit..It feels kinda weird putting up a picture of myself..since I'm all pro anonymity and had to happen someday...well..If anyone I know is reading this...please keep quiet and don't tell anybody else about this blog..!! I mean it..or else I'll hunt you down and.....Blah blah blah.....
