Another ‘Un-Eventful’ Start to my Day

6:50 AM – Alarm rings

ME: Sigh!!! Babbby I don’t want to go to work!!

PR: Mumbles grumbles and turns to the other side

6:55 AM

ME: PR is Godzilla a dinosaur ?

PR: Godzilla is a mutant reptile.

ME: Oh ok. I think he’s on the next street.

PR: If you don’t want to go to work don’t go but you can’t use Godzilla as a reason.

ME: Sigh!! (whining like a child) Why not?

7:00 AM

PR gets an SMS which says

' Calmness is not a weakness but strength. Be calm! '

PR: Someone beep beep beep sends me an SMS at 7 Beep AM, wakes me up to tell me to be calm. Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!!!

ME: :D

7:05 AM

ME: I had a weird dream

PR: mumbles gibberish

ME: I was married to A ( A was this mutual friend of ours who had a crush on me and vice versa. PR just about tolerated A. ) We were on a boat. A couple of friends including you were also there.

PR: Hmmmm..

ME: Then there was this 30 foot wave, like a tsunami, came crashing on our boat. After it hit instead of searching for A, I went searching for you. I held on to you.

PR: Practically speaking if a 30 foot wave hit a boat, none of us would survive, we would all drown and die.

ME: yeah whatever… Ya then the dream drastically shifts to this shop where I see this awesome purple wallet and A buys the wallet for himself. That’s when I regretted marrying him cuz if it were you, you would have definitely got it for me. I’m so glad I married you instead of that purple-wallet-buying-for-himself-moron.

PR: Buhahahahahaha… That dream is so typical you for the fact that there was shopping and the color purple involved. I’m glad I am married to the purple-wallet-30-foot-tsunami-dreamer.

ME: :D

7:14 AM

I had stared at the walls for a good 5 minutes before I notice a thick line on one of the walls next to the balcony. It looked like as if PR has splattered ketchup on our newly painted walls. (If anything goes wrong, I like to pin-point it on PR. It always is.) I looked closer to see it was a trail of red ants moving their queens (yes 3 of them) into our room to start their colony.

The audacity of them to relocate to our room and that too without our permission.

I’m sad to inform that an entire colony of ants were killed during the writing of this post. If I have any PETA followers, I’m really sorry but we had no other option and they were swarming us from all directions. We panicked!! (Notice the fact that I used ‘We’ not ‘I’ cuz if I’m coming down I’m brining PR along with me :) )

TV Show Addict

I have been meaning to write about my Pondy trip and about the goodies that I bought or got recently but I have been addicted to watching TV shows.
It all started with Scrubs. I’m totally in love with that show. Turk & Carla sometimes remind me of PR & moi. My favorite character is Dr Perry Cox. He is HILARIOUS. This is the only tv show that PR & I watch together. We are on Season 7 now.

I got Ten Things I Hate About you. I loved the movie and thought the series would be equally funny. I watched it and realized that I’m no longer a teenager and the show does not appeal to me. I still ended up watching the entire season.

Then I moved on to Glee – another teenage musical series. I don’t care much for the series as such but I loved their renditions of some of the songs. My top favs are Rehab and Golddigger. In fact I like them better than the original.

I got hooked on to Desperate Housewives. I know I know what you guys are thinking of me. You have stooped too low. I enjoyed the first season. It was interesting. PR would watch if Eva Longoria is there and scantily dressed, which she is most of the time. MB called me up one day while I was watching this show and asked me what I’m doing. When I told him he couldn’t stop laughing for a good whole 5 minutes. He just went ‘Oh Sonia, Sonia Sonia!!’ He was like just because you got married you don’t have to start watching the show to get pointers on how to cheat on PR. :P

I got hooked on to Grey’s Anatomy last week and finished the first season. I am going through a phase for medical drama series. I have put House MD for download last night.

I have not watched a television show continuously for the past ten years cuz I was in a hostel or PG most of the time.

When I was at home I was addicted to them. I used to religiously watch the X-Files, Small Wonder, Charles in Charge, Full House, Law & Order, Remington Steel (Sigh!! Pierce Brosnan!!)

It was to the point that if we had to go out as a family I had to be told in advance so I can decide the time and day according to my TV shows.

I remember watching Bold & The Beautiful when I was in 1st grade with my dad. Before you guys get the wrong idea, we were living in Dubai and we used to watch the show in the regional channel way before the Star channels came. This is an Arab country so they don’t even show a kissing scene even if it’s on the cheek so the entire time we watched B&B there was no adult content. It was like watching an Indian TV series. Once Star World came and they started telecasting B&B and we saw what the actual series was about, my dad forbade me to watch it. So the entire time we saw B&B, it was like having a lollypop with the wrapper on. We never got to taste the juicy bits!! :D
Ok Peoples!! The first episode of House MD is done. Me going to watch. Catch you later Alligators!!

(I know the last bit was cheesy but couldn’t help it. I know you all still like me or do you??)

Choco - La

I went to Pondicherry, the quaint little french colony for Easter holiday(it cant be called a holiday when its only 3 days but I had a superb time)

Belated Easter Wishes Ppls!!

Another post will be coming up shortly about the trip but I had to had to spread the word to all Chocoholics about Choco-La . I had read about the place in Femina magazine and as well as in the Hindu newspaper.

Choco-La is every Chocoholics heaven. They have chocolates in every flavor, shapes and sizes. They had chocolate honey combs and even a chocolate lollypop. What more can one ask for??

We went there on Easter Sunday and they had Easter bunnies and eggs They were the cutest. The Easter eggs were made of chocolate and not cake icing which is what I have always found in India. The egg also had a variety of chocolates unlike the ├ęclairs and candies that the usual eggs contain. Again I’m talking in terms of the Easter eggs I have tried in India.
The Easter bunnies are so Cute!!

 They had something which I have never had called Chocolate pakodas. It was yum as it was an amalgamation of nuts and chocolate (what more could I ask! Bliss Pure Bliss!!)

We went there before lunch so had a couple of pakodas as starters before heading out for lunch. I had to drag PR out of the shop by his ears. We went to a restaurant just opposite the place and walked back to Choco-La like Chocostein’s (We did the Frankenstein walk!! I know so juvenile !!)

54 Degree Chocolate

We tried something called 54 degree chocolate(an in-house special) which is hot chocolate and we dip in cubes of chocolate in it and have. They had a chocolate spoon. Imagine eating the spoon at the end of your meal. It was so cool.

PR enjoying the drink. What U guys think of his nail color? Me like!

So guys if you ever plan to visit Pondicherry, do drop in to Choco-La. It is a must for all Chocoholics.
The spoons on the top left corner. Yum!! Me want now!!

We met the owner of Choco-La and he said there are plans of opening one outlet in Chennai. I’m keeping fingers crossed.

The address is Choco-La Boutique, 319, Mission Street, Pondicherry.
So True So True!!

For all those who read my previous post Sickety Sick, I know I know, I was not supposed to have all of this cuz I’m recovering. Hello I was on a holiday so I decide to listen to my stomach instead of the doc. Don’t judge me. You weren’t there!

I’m fine thank you by the way. I think the chocolate therapy helped my stomach a lot!!

Sickety Sick

March was not good for me – health wise. I have been falling sick on and off throughout.

It all started on a the wee early hours of a peaceful Saturday morning wherein I suddenly jumped up off the bed, ran to the bathroom and vomited my guts out. From then on it was a nonstop show.

PR would rather have his nails pulled out than watch someone vomit so basically he sat on the bed and told me that I will be fine and will get through it and would gently ask me to close the bathroom door when I throw up cuz he didn’t even want to hear it. This is the man who promised me at the altar that he would stand by me in sickness and health. 

I happened to tell people about me being sick and everyone’s like ‘Any good news??’ For those of you who are not familiar with the term “Good News”. The definition is that when a couple gets married, there are not to waste any time, the man has to sow his seed and the woman has to start up her baby making machine and spit one out of her uterus ASAP. If I had the power to throw up whenever I want, I would have done projectile vomiting on all those people waiting for the “Good News”

I got better and fell sick again in the middle of the month. I never went and saw the doc cuz I thought it was just a case of mild food poisoning and that I had to watch what I’m eating. Lately I feel very uncomfortable every time I eat something so PR finally dragged me to the doc. He’s given me antibiotics and I can’t eat the following – milk, citrus fruits, spicy food, oily food, no junk, no outside food. I can have steamed or boiled veggies, string hoppers or steamed rice cake aka idli. I’m the kinda person who lives to eat. This is torture pure torture. I can’t handle it. I’m day dreaming of food.

I want to have this

and this

The fact that I'm reading a book called 'The Chocolate Lover's diet' does not help eitherI want this too people
Ok I really need help. I think i'm gona die if i don't eat any of this.
