A long lovely winding road.....

Sometimes what one perceives as an end of road is just a bend in the road....go slow, catch your breath and stay calm!!! Very soon the road as we know it will make an appearance....and we set off on new exciting journey :-)

You win some......

Life is a bit like playing the casino. It's impossible to beat the House. No matter how well you play the hands, the House almost always wins :-(

Just Saying......

Much as one may want it to be.....

Sum of the parts don't really make a whole.....

Wistful Mondays....uneasy memories make excellent residue....don't dredge them....ever!!!

A few of my favourite blogs....

There are some blogs that I simply love reading.

Like these three "dear diary" blogs:

I loved everything about these blogs. The authors have been honest to the core. So much so, that reading these posts was like a peek into their daily lives, most intimate thoughts, worries and insecurities. You could rejoice in their happiness and tear-up in their pain. I have browsed so many blogs since, but didn't find one as good or as honest!! Life's keeping these author's busy, for sure, since none of these are posting any longer. I miss reading them.

Then there is Baradwaj Rangan - a movie reviewer par excellence. B Rangan reviews every movie for what it is...not what it should be or could have been! Even movies like Shortcut Romeo are reviewed with a reverence. I don't want to call B Rangan a critic, coz that would put him in the same category as the other run-of-the-mill critics. This site is a must read every Monday for an impartial unbiased review of the latest release. 

The girls authoring this site are super duper witty. Every post is a hilarious gem. I  am guessing both the girls hold down day jobs and so the posts are infrequent. But definitely worth the wait. 

I stumbled upon the below two sites accidentally and have been a lurker ever since. My life and what I do is far removed from fashion and even more so from vintage. And yet my net browsing isn't complete without a quick look-see at these sites.

And then there is Fashion Scandal - 

What can I say about this amazing site??!! This site exposes the underbelly of fashion, fashionistas and "high" society. It's one site that is not afraid to write the truth. Recently, the site and its owner Jack have been targeted by unscrupulous bas****s. All the sites' readers stand by Jack and FS.

Here's to you, Jack. If you decide to stop writing, we will understand. But, if you choose to continue, then May the Force be with you. Let us know what you would like your readers to do, that may in some measure alleviate your troubles. 

Enjoy these sites, folks. They are worth your time and attention!!

Of absences and more....

So it's true...
Absence does indeed make the heart grow fonder and relationship sweeter....!!

And then....

Just like that the absence disappears and in its place appears -a glimmer of love, sweet togetherness and peace...lots of it...
Here's to suddenly disappearing absences !!!!

Positive is definitely positive but the absence of a negative is also a positive. And must be cherished as much..

And then again, sometimes...just sometimes, an absence is just that!! An absence...a tiny void!!!

Yikes !!!

Big Big Boss is visiting from overseas. I had to make a presentation.

So, left home a good two hours ahead of time to reach the office where the presentation was being held.

Made it before time and headed straight to the canteen. Empty stomachs make bad presenters, so fed myself some egg white, bread and tea. Half an hour later was at the meeting venue.

The meeting started on time. Boss and Big Boss were in attendance too. Random stuff I noticed during the presentation ...(!!!) 

Boss: All suited up....but still looking sloppy :-( Suits don't necessarily maketh a man.

Big Boss: No suit ! Horrible combination of pale yellow/brown shirt and red dotted tie.....No Good!

Big Big Boss from Overseas: No suit, No tie, pale white shirt and (gasp!!!) No vest!!!! Eeew!!!!  Aren't vests a must wear ??? Aren't they??? Aren't they??

And double Eeew!!!!! To me!! For noticing such things during the presentation!!! But tbh, the vest-less look was peeking out through the button gaps !!! Yikes!!!!

Whatever happened to formal dressing?!!
