When i thought 10 was better than 9

So yesterday the clumsy oaf in me subconsciously wondered why do we need 10 fingers or 10 toes. In my quest to satisfy my curiosity, i bumped against a wooden standee and cut the fourth toe on my left leg. and Not in one but multiple directions. I have to tell u looking down at my foot and having flesh stare back at you may not be worth the curiosity

So the husband arrived with all the requisite drama around where, why, what??? and carted me off to the hospital and this is where the post goes into bullet points

The fun parts

1. Got the most brilliant wheel chair ride from the Emergency room to the X-ray room. Was so fun…am thinking of availing the ride when i go back to get the stitches checked
2. Anaesthesia makes the world go around and accounts for a chirpy nut
3. 8 stitches is apparently a big deal…Ahh u non war veterans…this is kid’s play for me and results in lots of sympathy
4.The Tall one’s unending service
5. And of course the Day off work…Ha! I can now devote myself to Cityville…
6. oooh and i have something to blog about

The Blah’s
1. The tall one has to travel tonight and i got go tomm to visit the doc…phew the logistics of being langda tyagi
2. Me pretty feet are now gonna be scared for life…Boooo Hoooo
3. Bathing is going to be a b****
4. I think i am forgetting something — Ahh the pain when the painkillers and anaesthesia wears off

The Why’s
1. Wonder why i got the TT shot on the posterior where as the Tall One got his in the arm…I thought bum shots were for kids…am i being told something?
2. Why can’t i wear shoes?
3. Why does this have to happen when i start enjoying the gym?
4. Why does Anaesthesia wear off?
5. Why is everyone scolding me? I can’t help it?

ok…so finally in conclusion…i would like to inform you that the Yay’s may be many…but i recommend sticking on too all of your ten toes and fingers

And yes i am medicated…

ooh and in other ways to torture myself this weekend…i watched yamla pagla deewana….Oh yes my dearies that’s what u call an “exciting weekend”…!!

And i leave u with these thoughts – be careful for what you wish for

My take on everything

There is a total dearth of exciting things happening around me – a surprisingly cooperative Tall one, a seemingly sane Cheeni, the same work cribs, no wordless pics, no political or social affairs i feel strongly about- Damn i have nothing to blog about!

So in an attempt to prevent my blog was disappearing off the face of this earth – i have decided to review all the things i did/saw this weekend.

To start off with

Indian Ocean concert – They played at hard rock on friday evening. While some head banged, sang along, woo hoo ed and clicked snaps… there was one girl (u who dont agree and say woman – click on the cross on the top right) who didn’t get it…yes they have a couple of memorable songs – Kandisa and Ruk Jao Bande which she did sing along to…(i say the melody she creates) but most of the time she was engrossed in how the teeny-boppers of the world acted oh so cool with their oversized bags, low jeans, strappy dresses. A little bit of “Excuse me”, instead of rudely pushing someone might not drastically affect your cool quotient..me thinks.To add to all her agonies, her pwetty-pwetty red high heeled shoes were just the wrong accessory for a concert which required her to stand from 9 to 1…Sob…my feet still hurt and no i will not buy an Indian ocean CD! and yes i will lecture teeny boppers on manners…and the embarrassed Tall one and Cheeni can continue to pretend not to know me…

Onto the movie reviews

Aisha – Please dont ostracize me but i enjoyed it. I love a chick flick and i quite enjoyed it. The story line seems to be pretty much copied inspired from Clueless. i dont get why no reviewer sees this similarity and continues to say it’s based on Emma. Hello -makeover of new girl in town, hooking her up with guy interested in you while she is actually likes someone else, she then falling for the guy u like but dont know that u like…Hello Hello?? Clueless!! While i dont think there is much to rave about the acting…what acting…they needed to be pretty much be themselves..i have to add Abhay Deol is drool worthy and does quite a good job of playing the meanie boy..Sonam well she looks like she needs some food! (I dont like thin people! – grapes are not green and all)

Once upon a time in Mumbai – i read reviews comparing it to Satya. No Way Ho-Se/Jo-se?? ( i have always wanted to say this…just dont know how to spell it). Maybe it’s coz i saw the late night show and couldn’t appreciate the “art”.OUTIM is nice (for lack of a better word)…and while it is set in the 1970/80’s – something about the mannerisms of the cast – i can’t pin point just doesnt seem to reflect that period. P.s. Kangana was too thin for an actress of that time…just saying that’s all!

Comedy Store in Mumbai – Now this i totally recommend. In my books, it’s the latest hip thing to do.The comedy store at lower parel has stand up comedy acts (pretty much on the lines of those seen in Seinfield) and is definitely worth a visit if not for anything but at least for novelty value. Sit in the front row at your own risk!

Oh and finally a restaurant review – Kangna in Westin (goregaon E) – I will say this for all the restaurants (Kangna/Seasonal taste) in Westin, if not for the view and the ambience they would be empty. The food is average and non memorable. The view overlooking arrey colony is a delight during the day time – lush green and in the night the highway is a pretty picture…lights and all!

and before u think i get more than 48 hours for a weekend…i visited the comedy store the week before last

and none of the comedians were too thin! I like that place

Oh and just to add mention i bought 5 pairs of shoes at the lifestyle sale – and that too for just 2,500 – Sighhh…i love sales!
