You gimme feeevah

Apologies, dear reader, for not updating sooner.
I am unwell.
My throat feels like sandpaper, my nose is more stuffed up than the crowd at Orchard Road on the weekend and my head hurts.
I did go out last night and only had a couple of drinks so I doubt it's a hangover.
Stupid drinks with too much crushed ice.
Bah.


(This entry might be a little weird.. forgive me for it is written with some odd, unneccesary feverish urgency)

This whole week has gone by in a damn flash. If you ask me what took up so much of my time, I won't really be able to come up with a good answer...yup..twas one of those weeks.

My mom's been talking to me about marriage. She reckons she'll get me introduced to the eligible types when I graduate next year..I will be 23.
For those of you who are yet unaware, I want to get married young, I figured hey! Enjoy married life for about 4 years and have a couple of kids by the time I turn 30.
See I have it all planned out!

I told mom that I'll need to know the guy for AT LEAST a year. At least.
And that don't fit well with my plan.
My head hurts so I'm gonna let you do the math.
Also she's saying stuff like "Don't go only by looks"
Yea Duh Mom. But seriously..you should hear her say it..almost as if she's preparing me for the worst..w.t.f?

Going back to the reason of my state of unwell-ness, 'Guess' recently had a sale on Saturday.
Dear Lord.
Here's some advice - Don't EVER go to a Guess Sale on a Saturday. It's madness and mayhem of the highest order. I couldn't BREATHE, I couldn't move, and much to my chagrin, the pair of jeans that I wanted (in black) were NOT ON BLOODY SALE.
So I settled for the cheaper, but still well-fitting pair. Oh well. There's always next year.
Having said that - Get your jeans from Guess..they fit the BEST.

Also I think I'm psychic for real.
(haha!)
I dreamt about a friend last night, whom I haven't seen or heard from in ages..and boom! I see a mail from him, just now!
Let me tell you this people - There are no such things as coincidences.


Hardcore.

My mom just made me the most disgusting home-made remedy..it made my skin crawl.
I need to sleep off the trauma.
Overranddout.

Shucks! Hope you get well soon! Hey, aren't you scheduled to fly out to the land of kangaroos and Koala bears?! Better heal soon gurl!
What did aunty give you? Probably something that had haldi in it... ewwieee.. gluck with that!
There are more Mahi-related fun remedies.. yes, they include alcohol! Gosh! A tsp. full of brandy and some honey should do the trick! And no Mahi... it's not a glass-full... a teaspoon will do just fine! Oh, and I heard pickled ginger is good too!

dawn freaky isnt it?? i thought the one about you and the B&B was even freakier!
the home made remedy works like this - its so disgusting that you momentarily forget about your illness and focus on how yucky it tastes. thats it. its all psychological. sneaky mothers

'I couldn't BREATHE, I couldn't move, and much to my chagrin' is that you in the jeans or just lookin for one. Also btw unless u wanna have more than 4 kids ur mom's math aint that off.

Get married early? Why, woman...why dream of wasting this wonderous, elusive power of youth on ONE guy? I thought only hypocrites (read ppl like moi) did that...Kidding apart, life is one helluva dizzy bitch, nevah know which way she's gonna swing, so don't bother planning.

by the intense planning you have in place mahi I wouldn’t be surprised if you have the names of your kids planned (keeping all gender alternates), made bookings at the schools and already notified mothercare of your size and colour preferences...
by the way, hope you have also planned a gap between the time you get married and you have the first kid...?
or you think you'll get married on valentines day and pop one out on children’s day :-D

Get well soon :-)

If you get married early, get married to someone rich, so you have an affair or two.

choose a gardner or a free-roaming journalist.

guess ? I like giordano. Yeh, its not guess, but they fit really nice, and the denim is really cool...

good advice? u mean it or u r sacarstic or something? and some final words.... choose a guy who loves and respects u for ur individuality and whom u understand and respect for his.. they guy need not neccessarily be someone 10 other girls are gonna fancy but he shud be someone who is like so for u...like so jus for mahima that sort... yeah? looks aren't impt true...but choose a guy who looks pleasant enuf for u to see everyday...
patience and tolerance don't really seem like a hard core virtue of yours so choose a guy who has an abundance of them.. and u can more than make up for his lack of wit or romance... rite?
heez...its a pleasure coming across ur blog.
take care
god bless!

Mahi,
Mr. Anon here is trying desperately get his pretensions and projections of understanding, maturity and sensitivity across to you. So that you think he is a perfect guy. And 'assume' this is the way he is and behaves, so you could consider him?
Or put him on to your mom. Do whatever it takes.
But please do it before the comments keep getting longer than your post...

Afterthought – let him go get a name for himself first. Full pun intended.

aditya - :S i know man! how did we all start talking bout kids again? *scratches head*

anon nooo u got me wrong i wasnt being sarcy at all..i promise..i really meant it, it IS good advice! oh i can tolerate stuff but not if it gets out of hand yknow what i mean? i think if someone tolerates too much , things are bound to get out of hand..its human nature!
thank you for seeing your cousin sister in me, and im very very sorry for your loss..she must have been an amazing girl..
no hard feelings anon..i'd love for you to continue visiting again!

harjee no, no i didnt take anon's comments negatively..she did have a point..thank you for sticking up for a friend anyway! ill know who to call when the real big, bad trolls come around next time ;)

No more fighting on my blog. If anyone has any issues mail me, but don't fight on the blog.
And for the record- I don't hate Anonymous commentors.

arre baap re...
sorry anon bhen... aapko itna emotional kyon ho raha hai...
but would have been great if you leave a name.
faux pass as thus would be avoided.
Now that you say that... i see what you meant...
Am at fault so will offer no justifications.
And my saying something shouldn't stop you from visiting... it is Mahima's blog. I just butt in... :-P

sorry...

mahi,

Yeah yeah...any time. Wanna get someone beaten up, verbally or otherwise, give me a holler...
And am sorry for piling on to your visitors... didnt mean to offend anyone (anyone genuine that is). and didnt know you 'like' anon comments. As for me a name would do, even if it is fake...

take care...cheers

The plan sounds good to me. But don't have kids later than mid-30s cos you have health issues. Plus, you may be too old to do the fun stuff with them, you now? Like go to sales with your daughter. (Then again, probably not!)

Get well soon.

thank u raj!

harjee haha i like anon commentors when theyre nice and civil...trolls who just stop by to talk crap will get the same dealt to them, whether they care to check back or not..
and honestly if they wanna leave names or not..thats upto them..no issues..hey its the internet, half of us arent what we say we are!
much appreciate the apology, thank u! =)

sue- babes quite honestly thats the main reason why id rather have kids before 30, coz of the high chance of things going awry..of course im not saying having kids after 30 is wrong..i'd just rather not take any chances if it were upto me y'know?

minty - aye ma'am sales are timeless =D thank you yummy mummy! -hug-

Of course you should never judge a guy on looks alone. That would shallow. A hard body, a good income and a big um, car - these things are equally important.

Fell better, you big girl.

wow. people really like you... why does nobody fight on my blog.

It must be cos you're tall and hot. I wish i were too... but that's the way god wished it. I have to settle for slightly-above-average-height and hot. And hard bodied. And with a biggish, but very cool car. eventally, i'll be super rich also.

ah well.
