One quiz at the end of the day

Which OS are You?
Which OS are You?

Now I only have one grouse with the maker of this quiz, he did not anticipate women taking it
How does he presume I will not look perfect by just brushing and bathing (unlike what an unshaven men will do if he just brushes and bathes)

The days are extremely hectic – have been shopping for cousins wedding, got four dresses instead of the original two planned (and the budget overshot twofolds). Mom gave me a thick Payal and a silver bracelet to go with the silver grey dress which I intend to wear on the engagement day.

Cook has not turned up since Sunday and I have been making atleast one meal a day also giving aasim an additonal one hour. That leaves me tired and with no time to do the less important things in the priority list… Hope things get back to normal soon – Only if the cook turns up tomorrow, things will fall in place.

Gosh! how dependent we get on helpers 🙁

Todays children do have something to say. …

A kid who never threw a tantrum behaving in such a manner can be very very worry-some.

My first reaction was that of amusement when i saw him with chopped hair, but Tarique felt angry… and then I too was angry. He got scolded – I felt he did it because I denied him the new binoculars fearing he will break them and gave him the old ones.

Second time it happened yesterday, I talked with him gently – he told me he was feeling very bad so he did it… I had denied him the Cartoon TV He had been watching too (3-4 hrs) much of it. I told him to do something creative, make a greeting card or something – which he made and made very well.

Today again, he wet his shorts while skating – I had asked Dinesh to stay back instead of going skating with aasim, since there was work for him in the office.

I see a pattern – wonder if its my own figment of imagination, but I feel its his way of defiance, his way of rebelling, or a kind of tantrum.

On asking, he does not say that he did all that because he was denied something. If it was that, it would be easy for me to explain to him… now i dont know how to handle

But to begin with, both of us have started spending much more time with Aasim. Lets hope it helps.

In school, all his teachers always tell me that he is a very well behaved child, very mature and obedient. But they also tell me (and we feel it too) that he lacks self confidence.

As the child grows, bringing him up becomes more and more challenging, and so involving, The ways Aasim is, i wonder what will happen when he steps in to his teens!

Life is full of existential angst – Sue SIngh to Rahul Seth in Bollywood/Hollywood

The movie is amazingly entertaing. Dina Pathak mouths best of the dialogues.

Existential angst – I liked it! Everyone goes thru it all the time…

Allergic Rhinitis – stuffed nose – I know how it feels like to be a plugged bathtub!!

Music and movies

Bought music CDs after a long time. Sur and the latest from Adnan Sani (Tera Chehra)
Also picked up movies “The Game”, and “Hollywood Bollywood” to watch over weekend and yes, our all time fav “The never ending story” for Aasim to see.

On a different note, I love these notes

Kabhi shaam dhale to mere dil mein aa jaana
kabhi chaand khile to mere dil mein aa jaana
