Because I damn well please

Being home on vacation means I have time to blog about random rubbish :D
Although, on principle I like to avoid doing 'I've been upto this' kind of posts... but hey, it's the holiday mood... so I'll take a break from regular blogging and do just such a post.

What have I done since the last post? It took me two days of sleeping through the day to get over my jet lag. Today I was up (relatively) early and managed to go out shopping with mum. In typical womanly fashion we ended up wandering practically over the entire town trying to find the perfect material for a blouse ( I know, I know!)... what we did buy though is a saree for each of us and a suit... total unplanned purchases... but they made us happy :D I got a bottle green printed silk saree with a cream border and pallu and have since been trying to figure what design to get the blouse stitched in. Oh we also went to the tailor and I had to give measurements and all for a suit... I've done this stuff before but it amuses me a lot now... having gotten used to walking in, looking at labels and walking out after buying (or not). Also went to the bank and managed to get those buffoons to change my address... after SIX FLYING MONTHS. I'd put in a request the last time I was here and they did NOTHING. And now that is done, but I have to wait an entire month to get a new debit card and internet banking ID... a month that I don't have. Hmpfh.

Oh and mum took me to see a friend of hers who is a librarian. We socialise with comedians (other than having them as family)... and so this aunty was telling us about their evening of dumb charades from the weekend. Apparently someone cam eup with the brilliant title of "Ek sookhe kuen mein tairti hui mare hue kutte ki laash" to act out. Needless to say, everyone was in splits and no one got it.

Then mum brought me back home for lunch. Oh ya, I don't drive. So when I come home I have to be ferried around. I do manage to drive the two-wheeler if it's very necessary (read, urgent catch-up with friends who live near)... but otherwise I'm quite helpless. Also shameless... coz I refuse to learn driving :P Well, I'd like dad to teach me... but timings never match and that's pretty much my excuse. Lunch consisted of modak, rice and rasam, aloo sabzi... and more which I forget now. Then it was time for some random perusing of old RD articles which I had read and byhearted long since. See, that's the comfort of being at home... familiarity :)

Then... dad got home early and we went out to the optician and opthalmologist. I was given contact lenses. The doc pretty much treated me like a toddler... cut my nails and made me wash my hands properly and made sure they were dry and then made me practice putting on lenses and taking them off till he was satisfied I wouldn't gouge my eyes out. And once we go out of there (marvelling all the while that my glasses were off and I could see even then! And feeling weird without glasses) more shopping happened... the long sought after blouse piece was bought (by the light of a kerosene lamp as the peddlers were wrapping up for the day)... and we got home to dinner... consisting of the chat stall speciality here... cucumber slices with chutney and grated carrot and churmuri (puffed rice)... bhel (made at the table without any effort :D) sevaiya upma and still feeling hungry... mum's packed me off with a dabba of gajar halwa which waits by my side right now :D

Yes indeedy I'm having a vacation :D
