Love Quote.. Errr... Or Not....

My roomie, Leo the lioness, send across this quote to me and I found it hilarious. Here it goes. "Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life... You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-…

Shoe Monster

PR gave me this superb cute card on our 7 year anniversary which was last month. The shoe monster is the cutest. Check out the eyes of the monster as well as her shoes. I thinks she’s wearing an awesome pair of shoes. More than that she’s pink and has got the most adorable smile.
PR also gave me this pillow with an elephant head. Our conversation was somewhere on these lines
ME: Hmmm…Ok!! Thanks for the elephant head pillow.
PR: No, it’s a Transformer pillow
ME: huh!!??!!??
PR: Give it to me (folds the pillow) and Voila!! It transforms into an elephant.
ME: OMG!! That’s the most adorable elephant like ever!! :)
PR: :D

Isn’t PR the most adorable thing on planet earth??
I have been meaning to put these pics up in my blog for a long time but unfortunately I don’t have a digital camera and mostly use the camera on my phone(which is not gr8 but doesn’t suck either!!) I have been telling PR that I want to get a camera so I can take pics and put it up in my blog and I had been eyeing a purple (my fav…

9 Feet High

PR, MB, Kay (Karthik, who will be called Kay in my blog, he was given an option to choose his pseudonym cuz this might be one of last few decisions he will be making in his life as he’s getting married :D ) and I decided to go to 9 Feet High, which is a bar cum restaurant, facing the Bay of Bengal, to celebrate Kay’s last days of freedom.They came and picked me up at home and they were playing with Bread while waiting for me. I got hugged by all of them along with doggie drool. As we enter 9 Feet High, they were like ‘ We need to wash our hands as we played with Bread’ and I as usual never think before I speak blurted ‘Even I need to wash because I was touched by all of you’. That came out so wrong and the people around gave me weird looks and I will always be known as the The-Girl-Who-Was-Touched-By-All. :(I’m a teetotaler and I know it’s difficult to believe that after reading my blog cuz most of the posts look like I wrote them when piss drunk. Well you are wrong. I’m quite sob…

31 Days to Get Hitched

I'm getting married exactly a month from now. I'm super hyperventilating. I don't know what I'm getting myself into. Shit! Shit! Shit! WTF am I doing?

These were not the words that I thought I would utter a month before the wedding when I decided to get married to PR. I was like, we have been seeing each other for 7 years, it won't be a big deal.

Oh boy!! Was I so wrong?? I'm a bridezilla from hell and PR is ignoring me like the plague. He must be currently hitting his head on a wall going 'What was I thinking'?

I'm a total control freak which neither of us realized till now and PR is like 'Can I take a rain check on the entire marriage thingy??' I need to be there for every decision that is being made related to this wedding.

To add to the entire drama is the fact that the wedding is happening in my hometown which is like 12 hours by train from where I currently stay. I'm shuttling between these two places every weekend, haven't had a …

The day I lost and found my Cell Phone

I couldn’t find my phone the day before yesterday. The last time I made a call was to PR on my way back from work. I went to a couple of shops and went back to the Paying Guest (PG) where I stay.I get this feeling of cleaning up my cupboard like once in a blue moon and I had decided to do that once I reached the PG. After 2 hours of that I got so sick of it and wanted to get the feeling of domestic duties out of my system , that I decided to call PR. I couldn’t find my phone. When I call up its ringing and no one’s picking up so I was a bit comforted by the fact that no one’s stolen it so far. And to add to the misery was the fact that I had put my phone on silent cuz I was attending a meeting earlier. I searched like everywhere and couldn’t find the damn thing. All the neatly folded (almost) clothes were all pulled out to search for it but nada, zilch I couldn’t find it.I was pretty upset cuz it’s such a pain getting all the contact numbers and stuff. My roommates were on the other…

La Boulangerie

Today is my mom’s birthday. Happy Birthday Mama!! :)
I decided to get her a handbag as she loves them. I had my biatches, PR & MB, to give their opinions and they are really good at it. I’m definitely taking them for my next shoe shopping spree.After our fun time of handbag shopping we were quite hungry. There was a new French bakery, La Boulangerie, opened up nearby and they have the most awesome croissants, breads and pastries. I want to live in France just to have their breads. Its mouth watering. Here goes our conversationMe: Let’s go to La Boulangerie to have their croissants
MB: La Boula.. what??
PR: MB, say Lingerie
MB: Lingerie
PR: Now add BOO in front of it and say BooLingerie.
MB: Boolingerie :D What do they have?
ME: They have pastries, pepitos, croissants etc..
PR: And edible underwear
MB: Edible underwear. Nice!! But whose?
PR: Bill’s
ME: They don’t serve edible underwear. Who the hell is Bill?
PR: Bill as in edi-Bill underwear.
ME: :PFinally after all that discussion we didn’t ev…

How To Talk To A Widower

I know the title might sound quirky but this book is easily one of the funniest that I have read.I don’t remember the last time I laughed out loud while reading a book. Any book than can do that gets two thumbs up. I have not even finished reading this book (got another 100 pages to go) but I had to tell all of you about it.The story revolves around Doug Parker, a young widower who is the object of sympathy, curiosity and desire of the people in his town. It’s been a year since his wife passed away and he’s still in mourning. Enter his twin sister, Claire, who is determined to get Doug back into the dating scene. There are some really funny scenes in the book like when Doug & his stepson, Russ, go to have dinner with his eccentric parents, or when Dough meets his wife’s ex-husband for the first time. The most hilarious one so far is the one when Russ posts some videos of his step mom on the internet and his dad wants to beat his shit out and how Doug gets involved and it ends up i…

Team Edward

Yeah So like the entire world is gona watch New Moon tomorrow, I’m going to sit and twiddle my thumbs and wait for stupid Dec 4th to come.

I’m so pissed off and wana badly meet the genius who came up with the concept of releasing Twilight on the day of New Moon’s release. I want to pat him on his back and while I’m at it push him down some god forsaken ravine or something.Ok Be Calm Sonia. Breathe in. Breathe Out.I’m so upset. A part of me is itching to just take a flight to the nearest country that’s playing New Moon.

I’m gona satisfy myself by staring at the following pictures of RPatzz and make myself feel better.

Yum is what I have to say. I'm definitley part of Team Edward which by now all of you would have figured out.

Do check out Tia’s letter to RPatzz at Clever Girl Goes Blog. It’s hilarious.

Ajab Prem Ki.. & The Vampire Diaries

Madam Butterfly or MB, PR and I had gone for Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani. By now you would know that the choice of the movie was mine. My selling point was ‘Katrina Kaif! You guys can drool over her’. They were like ‘Is she naked in the movie?’ I was like ‘No!! but I’ll get you caramel popcorn’ and they agreed. I have strange friends one of whom I’m marrying!! Hmmm….
It was a candy floss movie. You have to leave your brain outside before entering the theatre. We entered half an hour late and I gave them so much of heat for it but honestly we didn’t miss much and wouldn’t have even if we entered 1 hour later.
To make up for the lost time, I was forced to accompany them to the nearby gaming arcade Blur, where they played mindless shooting and car games. I was in fact a passenger for MB while he drove a hummer. It was crazy. It was raining heavily over the weekend and we couldn’t go out and PR was forced to watch the Vampire Diaries with me. I have been wanting to watch the series for quite …

New Moon Release in India

I have really bad news for Twihards* in India. New Moon is releasing only on December 4th. It sucks big time. We have to wait 2 whole weeks to watch the movie whereas the rest of the world would have watched it twice. Ugh!!

Twilight was never released in India so they are releasing it on 20th November. How lame!! They could have released much earlier and New Moon on 20th.

I was so looking forward to watching the movie and been bugging PR to take me for it.

I’m going to see the positive of this bad news. Never saw Twilight in the theatre so it would be awesome to watch the movie in big screen.
It would be nice to recollect what happened in the first movie before watching the sequel. (Forget the fact that I have the movie on my laptop and have already watched it countless number of times)
It will be super to see Edward on the big screen whichever movie it is.

So my countdown for New moon is going to be 24 days(Its practically a month. Sigh!!) but for Edward its just 9 more days. Yipee!!

10 Things That are my Current Favorites

A Cup of Coffee
I’m a coffee-holic!! A cup of coffee can instantly brighten me up. I love the smell of freshly brewed coffee.
Shoes Most of you would know that i'm borderline fanatical about shoes. Check out the above picture. The shoes are actually made out of chocolate, which brings to my next fav thing – ChocolatesMaltesers Chocolate These are out of this world!! My roommate got an entire tub. It was Yum!! It doesn’t help that I’m desperately trying to loose weight before the wedding

The Color Purple
I have been crazy about the color purple ever since I found out that my birth stone is Amethyst which is purple in color. In fact my wedding theme itself is purple and white. Yay!! I’m so excited.
My Boy - PRHe’s my all time favorite. :)

Victoria’s Secret Sweet Daydream Body Mist My dad got this for me when we went to Singapore. It’s awesome smelling and dreamy. I love you Papa!!

2 Days in Paris

I was told to watch this movie if I have nothing better to do by a friend.
So the other day, I didn’t have anything better to do and watched this movie and I really enjoyed it.
This movie has Julie Delpy who wrote, produced, directed and acted in it (Boy! Isn’t she talented) and Adam Goldberg.
The story is about a couple, Jack and Marion who is French, who live in New York and they take a trip to Venice and stop on the way back in Paris to pick up Marion’s cat from her parents. The movie concentrates on the 2 days that they spend in Paris and how Jack sees and discovers a different side of Marion and her family.
When you read the title, you would think it would be this romantic movie set in Paris with the Eiffel tower in the background. At least I did and I was so wrong. It talks about infidelity and culture difference and how it can affect the relationship. It has its hilarious moments. I always thought French was a romantic language but after seeing this movie it doesn’t sound so roma…

Jesus Toast Anyone??

I saw this picture and had to share it with all of you.
I don’t think this is what Jesus meant when he said that the bread be converted to his body.
What would be the ad caption for this be?
‘Have Jesus for breakfast!! ‘
The church is going to be upset cuz till now only they had authority to convert the bread into Jesus’s body.
I also did a lil bit of scouting on the net and found that they have a Darth Vader toaster too.

It looks a little burned though but I guess all the Star War fans wouldn’t mind a burnt toast especially if it’s the bad ass dude that they are chewing up. :P

For all the girls out there, don’t feel bad they have a Hello Kitty toaster too.
I don’t know what to say about the people who came up with this idea. Innovative or Jobless?
So if you had a choice, whose face would you want on your toast?

Traffic Signal

PR has this weird thing with traffic signals. He absolutely hates them. I can understand its annoying to get caught at a traffic signal, but I think he’s seriously got issues.
He would rather take a detour and go the longer route to reach his destination, so that he can miss the ‘wretched’ signals. Yesterday he was dropping me back home and I was navigating him through a new route and we got stuck in a signal. If looks could kill, I would have been dead. The timer showed 60 seconds which was not good for me at all. We were stuck in the signal for ONE whole minute. He was nearly fuming and was telling me how the signal was mocking us. One minute of his life has been wasted on the damned signal.
I found his frustration hilarious, which didn’t help either. I was trying so hard not to laugh. He’s the cool and calm one in our relationship and I’m the one who’s hyperventilating. It was cute to see him like that. Obviously once he reads this, he’s going to completely deny this and say that he …

Papa I'm Lost!

I came across these cute snaps of my brother when he was a kid and thought of writing about his various lil adventures as a kid.
He’s gotten lost many times and I would like to recount the few that were hilarious.

Safa Park – Dubai
A whole bunch of us had gone to Safa Park(a huge widespread park) for a picnic. As usual all the kids were playing ball, the parents were all sitting around & chatting and the remaining few who didn’t belong to either category and wished they were somewhere else.
My brother, Stevan (2 years old) was along with the children, trying to get the attention of the bigger kids to include him in the gang. After some time my dad gets a call on his cell phone from an unknown number. He picks up and my bro was like ‘Papa, I’m lost’. Keep in mind, this is a 2 year old to whom my dad had told his mobile number once , a long time ago. Till the point Stevan called, we didn’t know he was lost. He started describing things around him, like people playing cricket, having a b…

Pre-Marital Counselling

You heard me right!! PR and I had to attend pre-marital counseling classes if we had to get married in a church.
We had people who have no experience in marriage telling us how to live a successful and happy marriage. To add to the misery was that the entire thing was for 3 whole days and that too on weekends. The only high point in a week were weekends and they took that away from me.
People have been asking me to recount my experience in the so called counseling classes but it was so traumatic and painful that I have actually blocked it out of my head.
PR incidentally has written not one but three posts on this topic. Do check it out.
I hope that I never have to go through this again. Next time I’m getting a register marriage!!
Did I just say next time? Why would I d…

Boyzone - A Different Beat

I was a huge huge fan of Boyzone during my teens. It was such a shock to hear that one of the boys, Stephen Gately, passed away. I mean I grew up on their music. They were a huge part of my friends & my life during our crazy teenage days. We would talk about them and collect pictures and posters of theirs endlessly. My room was filled with their posters which incidentally my mom has kept safely to remind me of those days.I All of us wanted to marry Ronan Keating and the other half wanted to marry Stephen and beget their children. I still remember in Oct 1999 when they came to Dubai to perform. We were all begging our parents to take us for the concert. After a lot of pleading and vouching to do a lot more housework and getting good grades my dad finally agreed. The entire stadium was filled with hormone crazed girls. A group of us were together with my dad and another grown up as our chaperon. The whole time we were screaming and singing along while my dad was sitting in one corne…

Keyboard Mayhem

I re-enter my place of doom (aka work station) after a long weekend, switch on my system and tried to log in. I couldn't and I was secretly pleased that God finally answered my prayers but another part of me was like 'Is this their way of telling me ? You no longer work here!!'
I pressed Ctrl+Alt+Del keys but the damn authentication box wouldn't turn up. The tech people sit like a 100 meters away from my cubicle but as per company rules I can't approach them directly, I need to call up the call centre which is half way across the world, tell them my problem and they would call the tech people and inform them of my issues. Is it just me or is that a more complicated procedure?
Anyways it's almost an hour of non-productive work. I'm just sitting at my place and staring at a blank screen. The tech dude takes his own sweet time and turns up eventually. I ranted on and on about how much my work has been affected and made it quite clear to him that the company woul…

Bubbly Lux

I met Lakshmi (lux) at work when we both were starting out in our careers. She and I hit it off instantly. We had the same wavelength of thoughts and liked similar things which included boys, clothes, perfumes, make up, shopping... The list is never ending.
She and I were called SME’s (Subject Matter Expert) in all topics that were of adult content. :) We had an answer or an opinion for all topics related to this.

Now she’s married and moved to Sin city – Las Vegas. It was like she was meant to be there and all forces of nature just pulled her in. She’s a diva in dual roles – ideal house wife in the day and Las Vegas show girl in the night!! Oopsie Lux.. I just slipped out our well kept secret. (Wink!! Wink!!)

Today being her birthday, I dedicate this post to her. Hope you have a great day and have a romantic candle light dinner with hubbie.

Below I’m going to describe one of our escapades during Diwali of 2007. This was way before I started blogging and I had send out an email on our lil…

Shoes.... Glorious Shoes...

PR got me new footwear this weekend. And girls its just awesome.. I didn't own a pair of red heels and he just added that to the list.

Don't they look sexy!!! I'm so in love with them

Now you know why I'm marrying him. :)

Since I was doing a post on shoes, I thought of sharing some of my favorite pairs.

These sexy purple pumps were given to me by Nina, Sriks (Madam Butterfly) and Karthik. Nina girl.. these shoes are so pretty. I LOVE them.. Thank you so much you guys...

Don't they look so cute together... Sigh!!!

These are my favorite pair of black heels. I got them from Bombay. I still remember the first time I wore them, felt like a million bucks but after some time my feet were slowly killing me.
To get some relief, I would
remove the heels and stand one
foot on PR's foot and the other on Karthik's. You guys were my knights in shining armor!!

These lavender ones were picked up in Bangalore. I loved the color and had to pick it up. They looked so cute and elega…
