gosh i never felt like writing so badly.. getting out all this excitement from my system..8 more days till my gojiraaaaa RAWRRRRRR is here!! I just can’t believe it. I’m in such a good place right now. I FEEL SO LIGHT..
I just cant believe my stars and that I’m going to meet my gojira in 8 days.. Been trying to keep busy and finish all the things on my to do list while I’m waiting for the days to pass by.. Since i been so lazy bout exercising at home my niece convinced me to buy a month’s pass at the swimming pool in their society. I used to live in that society once upon a time so my scooter license is proof that I’m a resident even though im not anymore. so for Rs. 500 I took out a month’s pass and I’m loving it so far. It’s such good exercise. I love to swim. There is nothing more refreshing than jumping in that pool when Ive been torturing in the heat of the summer all day. I do a couple laps and then chatter in between with my niece and my cousin if she comes along. It’s actually nice to have human contact with someone I can be myself with and know that I can trust them because they’re family after all. SOMEONE I CAN FAFF AROUND WITH.. FAFF, FAFF FAFF. that is the new word in my dictionary. lol. My neice I otherwise don’t get to spend time with or see since she’s so busy with her golf (she plays professionally) so usually she’s always out of town on some tournament or the other. Swimming becomes a great opportunity to fill in each other on our lives.
The first day I went for swimming I thought I would wear my bikini that I bought last year in march when I had visited California. I had decided I wanted a California bikini and wore that for the first time. This is my bikini. I just love the colors on it. I’m not usually a brown person but the turquoise and brown just look so awesome and of course the beaded turquoise belt looks too cute… I’m sorry I’m just going on and on I know it’s just that this is my first bikini I’ve had since 1st grade and I’m really proud of owning one again. lol.
But wearing my bikini at the swimming pool? Boy was that a big mistake. To all the bikini wearers out there. Warning: don’t wear a bikini at the swimming pool. wear it at a beach. Bikinis are not meant for swimming laps. I felt like I was going to expose every time I tried to swim freestyle. It was horrible. lol. My niece kept laughing at me because she experiences the same thing every time she swims in her bikini. So i swam breast stroke the whole time and vowed that I would wear my one piece next time I came for swimming. lol. I found it ironic that I was stuck with swimming the “breast stroke” lol.
Saturday night my niece wants me to come over and watch a movie since my cousin and her husband will be out of the house for dinner so im gonna go spend the night there. Right now I need distractions and to do stuff because I’m so jittery an anxious and excited allllll the time. i feel lighter as the days go by and i get so happy to use my black pen and scribble off one more thing off my list of things to do.
So far, I have finished buying the the plastic chairs (Rs.300 each not a bad deal) which were bought yesterday and delivered today. I found a plumber who also did electric work so I got him to fix my toilet that wouldn’t stop flushing and also got him to switch the hall fan into the bedroom, and the bedroom fan into the hall. The fan that was in the bedroom made so much noise that it would keep me awake at night and right now I don’t have my mosquito net up so the fan is the only thing that will keep the mosquitos away. So it was a pick your torture scenario until I finally got it fixed. Then yesterday I was so lucky, I happened to go into this home store which is right across the street looking for a bathrobe because gojira wants one and i didnt find the bathrobe in nice colors they were all girly but this store had baking stuff which I had initially planned to go to camp for. Finding the baking stuff at this store saved me the 1+ hr trip of going and coming to the middle of the city to get this stuff. I wanted a bread pan, square brownie pan, a circle cake pan, and cookie cutters. Well I actually had not planned on the cookie cutters but thought they were so cute I picked them up even though they weren’t on the list.

It was one of those stores where they had all this cool stuff from China and Korea that you normally don’t get in India. barbecue marinade brushes, tongs, all sorts of kitchen knick knacks and gadgets. it was amazing. I have a love hate thing with stores like this because I love looking at all the stuff but then I either spend a bomb or force myself to just window shop.. which can be extremely disappointing sometimes because I want something sooo badly. lol. (I picked up barbecue tongs for gojira too… shhhhh)
I basically wanted all these baking things for my new otg (oven toaster grill). I don’t know bout you but for me buying my otg is as exciting for me as an 18 yr old with a brand new car. Ive just been wanting to bake for so long and I finally have one. I don’t think I’ve put pics of my new oven up yet. If i have i’m sorry but here are the pics of my new Morphy Richards oven.. I wanted the 22 liter but I ended up with the 18 because they dont make the 22 anymore.
I’m so glad that when I went to the home store I listened to my instinct and didn’t pick up any of the bath robes I saw at the store because later on I found out that gojira wants a black one. I think I’m going to ask my mom to get one if she comes down in December again. I went to the gynaecologist (was on the list I just didnt put it on xanga), I got a new gas pipe fixed, I exchanged the barbecue set for the bigger one, and yeah I think that’s it. My uncle comes back tomorrow from Mumbai and I already told him I want to get 4 poles fixed to my bed. I forgot they were removable so instead of hooks in the wall Im going to get the poles made from a carpenter once he gets back. Then when I want to watch tv I can just removed the pole that blocks my view. I had not considered the pole idea up till now because I didn’t realize they were removable. My cable bill I’m paying on the 15th so there’s still time for that, lingerie shopping im going to save for next week cuz honestly its the most frivolous of the tasks to do. Im anyways planning to get all my work finished by the 15th, so I’ll have 5 days to sit around and do nothing so I guess I can do it then.. Bike servicing I’ll also do on one of the days when I’m really bored. So yeah I’m pretty much done besides a few minor tasks. I’m really proud of myself. I don’t care how stupid I sound but I am. I don’t think Ive ever worked this hard to make things so perfectly planned out for someone else.
A couple days back we were chatting and he revealed to me something he had done. i can’t say what because I don’t think he would like it if I told his secret even if this is anonymous, but all i can say was… it made me very sad. I was relieved though that he could trust me with his secret and share his grief with me. I think we moved up a level in our relationship from the talk and discussion we had and I really felt cared and loved. Everything is clicking into place.. I’m going to cross my fingers and hope the outcome of this relationship is exactly how I want it to be..
Today I was browsing around Deviant Art and came across a piece of art that someone had done of my dear Johnny (The Depster, aka Johnny Depp =P) But I was so amazed because gojira looks so much like him in this picture.. If my gojira and Johnny were to merge into one this is what he would look like.
I’d also like to extend an apology to all of my Xanga friends who I’ve been so horrible about commenting and doing justice to your blogs as you always do to mine. Ive been juggling all these errands and finishing up my quota of work so that I can be free as a bird that I really have had no time for xanga. I will come around soon.. even if it takes me time you know I always pay a visit =) Also for the month and a half while gojira is here I honestly dont expect to be online at all =| i know I will be cut off from xanga. But I plan to keep a lil paper diary so I can recall it all and xanga it later on.. So yes, that’s all for now… this light is turned off..
