Thus far..

Ok so let's recap what's been happening so far:

1) I am alive and well, even though this week I have felt like a single, working mom.


2) I am starting to get the hang of this '9-5' work-thang. I'm even starting to enjoy it.


3) I was terribly depressed last night because I attempted to make trifle pudding (my first ever attempt) with whatever I had lying around (I did have to go down the minimart and get some pudding powder, coz lets face it..what is 'trifle pudding' without the 'pudding'? Just trifle. And just trifle is NO FUN.) So I made it..and I realised the pudding wasn't sweet enough, the orange juice (yes I used orange juice..don't ask.) was too much and the cake was too dry.
I sadly thought to myself "Oh Mahi. You've lost your cooking mojo." In fact, a dedicated reader, loyal fan and ardent 'Mahi-lover' (read: Apoo) can testify to my depression. I just wouldnt stop whining about it.

Nevertheless I made the trifle pudding and put it in the fridge.
Fast forward 18 hours (present)- I came home, took a deep breath, decided to face the sorry excuse for trifle pudding that was awaiting me in the fridge.
I took a bite and stopped.

Holy cow! My fridge is a MAGIC FRIDGE, people! The trifle pudding turned into something AWESOME. It was just right..everything blended amazingly well, the cake was moist, the pudding was sweet, the orange juice had gone to the right places.
The Mojo is BACK, people, it's BACK.


4) I won't go into names and companies (for obvious reasons) but a certain KT is a most unpleasant, brash, loud woman. Someone who just naturally repels people.
She was ranting and raving to a few colleagues about something and ended up saying something really funny, so someone, let's call her 'M', just burst out laughing...
She then stared at M and went "Why are you laughing?"
Now who the hell says something that stupid?!
"Coz what you said was incredibly funny!(you stupid COW.)"
She just continued to stare and M.
M just shrugged and went back to work.

Now there's a "w.t.f" moment, if I ever saw one.


5) The director of my department walked into the room yesterday morning. I was the only one who was at my desk at 9am(yes, I HATE it when people aren't punctual. It pisses me off no end. So you won't catch me being late.) So anyway, he stands there at the door..and suddenly whips out a camera and takes a picture of the room (with me in it!).

I just looked at him, a bit shocked (I mean..it's friggin 9am..I'm barely awake, man)...he looked at me and suddenly pointed at me and started laughing "Ha! I caught you smiling!"
-Cue nervous laughter from me- "Heh heh hehh...heh..heh.."
And he just kept on chuckling to himself and walked out of the room.
=S



Well, my family should be back from their trip in about half an hour.
Finally, I can get back to my normal life!

Shit. I'll have to get back to my normal life.



Take care guys..have a great weekend!

Aww, I'd love to have the house to myself! For one, I'd have some quiet time with myself and allow me to indulge in some thinking. Secondly, I'd be able to plan and host an awesome partaaayyy!!!
As for that guy taking your pic....Mahi....be careful there...he could be a spy or he could be planning to put ure pic on the office's newsletter, reason enough for office-mates to not be punctual.
Also, I'm glad your cooking MOJO is back, now only if you could air deliver a sample for me to testify your culinary skills. *hint*
Ah, and most importantly, I hope you and single mom never go togethre....the kid is going to need someone sane and normal in her life...and hopefully that would be her dad!=P
Biscous!

Ever seen the episode of Friends where Rachel tries to make a trifle, but because the pages of her cookbook were stuck together she made half a trifle - and half a shepherd's pie?

Ross: It tastes like feet!!!

I take it yours didn't?

Jay: As she whined, thew friends bit is just what I thought of!

Mahi: U cheat! U didnt tell them about the alterations I asked you to make in the recipe, which now makes it taste like God level!
It takes a woman to cook food and a man to make it taste better.

Love how even your daily rant sounds like an interesting story.

So you don't smile much, do you? Try it sometime...a cynic who's smiling always confuses people.

No. I want the magic fridge. I deserve a magic fridge since my brother is the magic chef. Yes. I get the magic fridge. Share the wealth.

You can tour the world "Mahima and her Magic Fridge" I'll be your manager and take a big chunk of the money. Awesome. But then I will kidnap the fridge, ransom it for a magic stove and then not return the magic fridge, sending you the motor from my regular fridge in pieces so you think I killed it before I tour the world "Jenna and her Magical Appliances." Wait...that doesn't sound right. Hm.

He's a frickin' God in the kitchen. I can barely boil water. He could cook at 5 when he decided he needed more fish sticks and hamburgers than my mom was willing to make. It doesn't seem fair he got all the culinary talent. then again - I got all the brains (good lord! There's a thought). Hm. Well...I got all the looks. Um. Hm. Y'know, I'm seriously lacking on the plus side. Well...I can write really smutty stories and he can barely spell. Yah! I rock.

So...send over your fridge, 'kay? What do you think the shipping charges would be on Fed/Ex?

Blogger Madame Mahima did the happy dance and finally said..

jenna.. you got the brains AND the looks, you don't need to cook! u just get the guy to cook!
brains, woman, BRAINS!
ps- i think the shipping charges on a fridge would be LOADS!

smutty stories eh? i will be investigating this further
heh heh

Hmmm...methinks you are onto something with bagging a guy who can cook.

Then I will chain him up naked to the stove (except when something will splatter then I will give him a transparent apron).

And they are deliciously smutty stories and how I will bag said cook. I will zap him with my feminine wiles and tons of research. Ahhh...research.
