>Promotion on the way..!!


The past few days have been hectic and I’ve had no time to write this post.. I know it deserves to be here 10days back, but I couldn’t… 😦

Yay!!!! I’m getting a promotion…. Before you jump to conclusions, let me tell you that the job I’m in, I cannot get any promotion.. So its not at work 😛 Then what??? hehehehahaha 😀 I’m gonna be an aunt… I’m gonna be an aunt… I’m gonna be an aunt… 🙂

Of course there’s still a lot of time, but I’m all excited already. I have 4 cousins, all younger to me.. With 3 of them, I’ve had the chance of playing, advising them as an elder sister, scolding them and entertaining them and enjoying the baby antics 🙂 as I am much older than them.. But it gets more exciting to know that your own sister’s baby is all set to come..!! 😀 Time’s coming for me to stop acting like a kid and behave ladylike!! (I am just waiting for a chance to become all the more kiddish and to have fun with the little one 😉 ) My sister’s enough to teach the kid the prim and proper ways. She’s always been the proper lady and I’ve been the taleharte at home :D!! So this little she/he is gonna have one aunt who’s gonna spoil her/him nicely and one mom to teach her/him (and me) the correct ways :P… Its gonna be fun!!!

The excited me is already making plans and the sober sis keeps bringing me down to earth. For instance, I was discussing with my sis that I want a niece and not a nephew. (Yeah I know… I’m biased. But half the world is biased… Many of them still prefer a baby boy. So why cant I be biased towards girls? hmmph!!) So getting back.. I was telling my sis that everyone who has a boy kid or a girl kid dresses it up as Krishna paapa, so we’ll dress up my niece as Radhe and take pictures.. 🙂 I was so happy with my idea. My sis literally poured cold water on it, saying “Sit and study for your exam tomorrow, I’m getting tensed about it and you are jumping around!!” 😦 You wait my dearest sis, I and my niece/nephew (yeah yeah.. I’m not all that biased..) are gonna gang up against you… 😛

I am making plans of what the baby will call me.. chikkamma :O I should think of something else!! Aunty sounds even worse.. 😛 I’ve seen people who call their chikkammas as chikki (atleast it sounds better!!). I also heard suggestions like mini-mum (chikka-amma)… sheesh!! People do you have suggestions??

So all of you reading this, please do include my sis and the family in your prayers and bless that the little one arrives hale and hearty into our lives.. 🙂

(PS: The dot on the top was a drushti-bottu for the little one 🙂 )

>From Diaries to Blogs…

>(Warning: The following post is long and the owner is not responsible for anyone getting bored or falling asleep)

Me being the younger of the two daughters to my parents, I was for long treated like a kid at home (now don’t tell me, I look like one too 😛 I’ve heard that enough and I still keep hearing it.. hmmph!! :X). I get a feeling that for my sis I’m still a kid at most times.. Okay… the post is not about how kiddish I am :P.

So… me being the younger sibling and coz I love my sis a lot and look up to everything she does, I used to religiously follow everything that she did or liked. My fav actor was SRK for a long time coz my sis’s fav actor was SRK, my fav color was ‘X’ as my sis’s fav color was ‘X’, I liked a movie coz my sis found it good, I started liking Malleshwaram coz it was my sis’s fav place (I still love Malleshwaram though… and I guess my sis still loves it too ;)), I used to like Pulao and not Bisi Bele Bath coz that’s what my sis liked, I got interested in reading books coz of my sis… you get the drift??? We still have a similar liking though not the same always… Okay… This post is not about me and my sis either.. 😀 . That’s gonna be one loooong post (yeah probably longer than this ;))

All this was to tell that, I started maintaining a personal diary coz my sis had started doing it. My sis was in college or in her 10th std, I’m not sure… and I was in primary school :P. So you can imagine what I wrote. I stopped writing after sometime as it was tiring and I didn’t know what to write every day. I dunno what my sis did (you see.. it was a personal diary and she hid it :X). Sometime recently I happened to read what I had written and I couldn’t stop laughing… 😀

My entries used to generally be like this –

Dear Diary (as if it was gonna be offended otherwise :P),

Today I went to school. We had Science class. My fav ‘R’ ma’am was absent. We learnt about ‘xyz’ in English class… blah blah blah… (and finally, something like) I have lots of homework and I gotta go do that ok. So I’ll see you tomorrow (yeah.. I said cya even to the diary :P).


I know, I know.. I was pathetic… 😛 I found out soon and gave it up. I guess my interest in writing still remained. So I started all over again when I was in college. This time I decided to stick to writing when I was very happy or very sad. Aaah..!! This was much better I must tell :D. I gave up that too after sometime coz I had started writing only about things which made me sad.. 😦

Now I’m here blogging… 🙂 I learnt what’s a blog all about from (no points for guessing..) my sis of course!! That was about 4 years back. I love the way she writes and pester her to no end when she’s being lazy and not updating her blog. I read quite a few other blogs too and I’m awed by the way some people write. They are so creative in their writing that you would want to go back to read every post of theirs.

All these people inspire me to write.:) That’s why I’m here, being the small fish in the huge ocean.. 🙂

(should I say cya dear blog!!) 😀
