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!!

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…
