The month that was!

Technically, this post should be posted next week when the month is over, but I figured I'd go ahead and do this while I've got nothing to do!

Awesomest thing that happened this month : Got to watch Surya on big screen!! Woot! Woot! He was eye candy! But the less I talk about the movie, the better! :P

Other small but nice things that made me feel good this month:
--Fall Colors! Its freakin BEAUTIFUL!! I open my windows to see different colored trees! Bliss!
-- Got to smell the new fragrance thats out at Bath n Body Works - "Twilight Woods"! OMG! Its awesome!! Cant wait to get paid and go raid the store!
--Made Mutter Paneer and came out tasting "quite nice"..
--talking to my grandparents.. always makes me feel good!!
--Had a weekend off after a longg, longg time..which meant..
-- I Went to Springfield and spent a weekend catching up with old buddies! Good times!!
--We can dress up for Halloween at work!! Ya-hoo! :)
--Reading Calvin n Hobbes at the library! =)
--Having "G" and "K" over at KC at the beginning of the month.. it always feels good to see family!
--Oh did I mention watching Surya on big screen? ;)

What really sucked though was.....
--The end of summer!! I swear I'm not looking forward to an extreme KC winter!
--Missing Thata's 80th! :(
--Being all alone on Diwali! I swear I'm not trying to gain self-pity or anything, but it is the worst time to be alone!! When the rest of the world is celebrating! Even the Obamas made it festive! :P --And of course there were several Diwali functions happening and I couldn't go for a single event! Boo-Hoo!!
--Having a $10 off coupon to shop at DSW Shoes and not being able to buy boots(that I've be dying to buy!) coz of uncertain future after Dec! I mean, I definitely don't need to be walking in boots in Chennai right? :(

To be updated by the end of the month......

Jeez, I'm so lucky!

Just when I had made full plans to go have fun during Diwali, my store manager puts up this notice which says "no requests off granted during the weekend of 17th/18th"... Oh, just my luck aint it?!? I even planned on the kurti that I was going to wear that night!! Suckss!!!! I just hate it! Maybe I should call in sick! Or better still, say I'm dead!
PS. Happy budday Sne.. and to Mosh on the 6th.. Enjoy ur days! :)

My fave season is here!!

I have this weekend off after a long, long time.. My first since June! And it was extra special..coz G and K(my uncles) from India visited me in K.C! It was their first ever visit here and I wanted it to be super special! K arrived in his usual pair of shorts and was freezing his a$$ off! They loved my apt, we walked around, took pics and drove through Downtown KC, which turned out to be quite a long drive, thanks to my extremely poor directions! ;) "G" just kept clicking pics in his awesome cam! We ate, walked, took funny pics(esp of "K") and chilled..Basically, had a good time. You know, it felt soo good to have family visit me again. A lot of my friends envy me because I get to see family so often. Well, I do agree that I'm one of those fortunate ones.. What they dont understand is that, its kinda harder when you see family often.. Makes me all the more homesick, if you know what I mean! Dont get me wrong.. I'm not complaining one bit.. Like I said, it was awesome having them over and roaming through the Zona Rosa with people I know and love instead of just by myself.. Of course, the downside of it is they brought me goodies from back home and now I just can't seem to control myself from gorging on all that yum stuff! SIGH! Such is the unfairness of life...Navrathri is over and Diwali is around the corner.. the ISA is planning a big event and I really want to go.. Its something I am really looking forward to! Its been fairly busy at work.. I'm liking it.. Just not sure what the future holds for me at TRU.. Lets wait and watch.. I'm feeling pensive coz the uncles just left and the apartment is quiet again.. Its about 8:15 pm on a Saturday night..not to mention a cold, dreary night and I am by myself... Gonna just curl up and drink up some hot chocolate maybe! But hey.. guess what? Its Fall.. my absolute fave time of year.. Happy October :)
