Happy Realisation

It's a sad joke that we cracked when we were kids, but when anyone wished us 'Happy New Year' after the 10th of January, the normal response to that was Happy Realisation.

Quite sad.

My Zebra feet
Anyway, here's a list of some of the other realisations of the last decade.

  • I am really good at Camouflage. 
  • If I think I have jaundice, it's most probably because I just ate cheese flavoured banana chips that have automatically given me a yellow manicure.
  • Planning for a wedding is tougher than learning Chinese.
  • I will never speak good Hindi.
  • I will never stop laughing at other people's bad Hindi. (Aku talking to a Mehendi lady on the phone for her bridal mehendi: Mujhe full legs nahi chahiye, sirf feet karna hai).
  • I will never be able to call a Macaroon a Macaroon without first calling it Macroom biscuit in my head, thanks to my grandmother.
  • Richie Rich is boring and He-Man is the coolest.
  • You can survive without Facebook just as you did before it existed.
  • Green tea does not make you lose weight.
  • The Home Alone tune is called the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy by Tchaikovsky. I know every piece of classical music because of movies, ads or Tom & Jerry.
  • Tibbs Frankie at Shivaji Park kicks all other Tibb's Frankie's bums.
  • Yellow Ochre is not really yellow.
  • Movies will always end the same way. How much ever I want Marley to stay alive, he still is going to die at the end of Marley and Me everytime I watch it. Just like how Julia Roberts will never marry her best friend.
  • I am seriously lazy if I type K for Ok.
  • Contact is the coolest movie of the 90's.
  • Great marketing and great bullshitting skills can surely take you a long way. I have a lot to learn. I am saying this because I went for the Anish Kapoor show and it sucked bigtime.
  • And Michael Buble's real name is unfortunately not Michael Bubble. How disappointing!
Have a good weekend!

Happy 2011

Being a designer, when people talk about resolutions, the first thing that comes to my mind is 72, 150 or 300 dpi?

Every new year I think about what my resolution for the year will be.
And then I don't make one since its more than likely that I'll forget about it in a day or two.
In my teens I thought of getting a meaningful tattoo but then had nothing to say that would mean something to me years later. Luckily. Then I went into the whole let's try every Adventure Sport phase and tried none.

This year however I'm making up for all those years and making a whole list of them.

Today, the 1st of January for many seems like a new beginning and the New Year celebrations continue.
For me, it's all about Saturday Night Fever. No, not the movie. I just have fever on a Saturday Night.

Did I party too hard last night? Umm.. No.

I had decided not to attend any party where I feel coughed up from the room.
Or drink till I get pickled since unfortunately for me noone would be watching me lovingly with My Cherie Amour playing in the background.
Or be in a 5 foot radius of anyone about to throw up.

I attended a nice new year party which was pretty sober/ normal (besides the part where I was fencing with a bunch of balloons on a stick) and now after having recovered from it, I have decided to jot down some plans for 2011.

  • Draw more cause I know I can do better.
  • Learn to cook and try not being afraid of fire or knives for a change.
  • Or draw and cook.
  • Find love like this.
  • Start cycling.
  • Get a Sheila ki Jawaani body before Aku's wedding (since I feel like I'm starting to look like the food I've been over-eating. My mother has started calling me plumcake).
  • Write more letters. Collect more stamps for my stampbook.
  • Watch more movies. Especially the good ones in foreign languages. Maybe I'll try and understand them without subtitles.
  • Travel.
  • Write a book. On what I do not know.
  • Finally setup my own website.
That seems to be a very long list.
So exciting/scary.

And if nothing works out I'll just have a 'tub-bath'.
(My mother's solution to all my problems).

But, to be honest nothing in life scares me all that much.
I guess that's cause I know how to enjoy life's simple pleasures.
For example, the other day I had a Frooti. It got over too soon. This made me very sad.
A minute later I had a Frootilicious burp and then life seemed lovely all over again.

Here's wishing you many Frooti filled burps this year.
Have a good 2011!
