Cue the Wedding March!!!!!


What a whirlwind start to the Year 2007!
The slow New Year's eve I had was definitely not an indication of what was to come.

I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate Dev and Arpeeta coz the two lovebirds are NOW ENGAGED!!!!!!!



I am absolutely ecstatic with joy!!!!!!!
(Boy and Girls who were lusting after my two very pretty friends: Sorry! You'll have to ogle elsewhere now :P)
Dev proposed and (obviously) Arpu said "Yes."
(The actual story is HILARIOUS but I don't think I'm allowed to post that....yet)

Aaah it seems like just yesterday that Mink and I were checking out pictures on Arpu's laptop and froze when we came across Dev's.
"Arpu. Who is THIS."
"Oh some guy from Melbourne."
"He's HOT."
"Really? He's OK I guess.."

I can hardly believe its been almost two years since I started a conversation with that guy and found him to be a lovely person..of course he did kiss ass big time to get my approval ;) (Don't you deny it Dev!)
And of course it seems like just yesterday when Dev called me excitedy to say "Hey Mahi! I think your friend is into me and all that!!":D

But seriously, I can't think of two people more suited for each other.

I'm gonna save the good stuff for the wedding speech later on but hey Dev, I saw the ring and duuuuuuuuuuuuuude I TOTALLY approve :D

Aye with the news of the engagement it's been madness here. When Arpu got back from Melbourne, I got a flurry of phone calls asking if the news was true. I totally felt like her personal assistant/manager/publicist/damage control-
"Arpeeta is extremely tired after her trip but is in good spirits."
"No Arpeeta is NOT married already."
"Yes of COURSE she said "yes" to Dev."
"Arpeeta is currently spending time with her loved ones and is unable to take your calls."
"Arpeeta is napping. I will let her know you wanted to speak to her."
"The wedding date has not been fixed yet, but once it is you will be the first to know (not.)"
"Arpeeta's schedule is currently full but I'll let her know you wanted to meet up."
"No, no she's not pregnant!"
"Arpeeta only has a caramel frap. CARAMEL. Get it right next time, assface."

(Hehe okok I was kidding about the last two. What? You couldn't tell?)
I've said this before..I would do SO well in the PR business.

Of course when I told a few friends about it, the next inevitable questions was "So, Mahi, when are you getting married?"
To which I would answer tongue-in-cheek (of course) "July 10th, 2009. Your invites are in the mailbox. I just need to find a guy and we'll be all set."

Here's to you Arpu and Dev -clink-
I can't wait for the wedding. All those nice, single, slightly tipsy men hanging around.
Heh Heh Heh.

Anyway, I gotta run now!
Places to go, people to meet and all that ;)
Take care guys!

Unn... does this mean she IS pregnant and you were kidding when you said she is not?

My best wishes to the newly engaged couple. Let me know if you have trouble writing the wedding speech.

Oooh! What a pretty couple!

Oooh! What pretty news!

Ooooh! Pretty, pretty everywhere!

Ooooh! What a pretty hostess das FO SHO!

PR? Wowie! Hey, if I get famous somehow will you do PR for me??? That would be faboo and a good excuse to get famous and if you do my PR we can hang out and I will act like a snob and you can have a cell phone with you at all times and look all fabulously frazzled while you yell away at people. Oooh! Sooo pretty a thought! ;-P

Yo Mahi, I'm back!:)

I've never had much luck with men at weddings. Especially family weddings. All I ever get is the occasional sister-of-the-groom pimping her other unmarried brother who couldn't make it to the wedding, but who is VERY hot, and earns shitloads of money.

Hope you have better luck than that.

... with the generic definition I am well on course to stand by my resolution this year (don't ask me to define 'a year', that's my giveaway)

and for heaven's (or the place where no one has gone before)'s sakes .... stop blushing ... this year's gonna be dry from me ... not a single drop of spirited entertainment coming your way gurl

... also when you have the time, lookup the word 'Proposal' over your pocket thesaurus (buy one or go ) and if you have the time .. lookup 'Metatarsophalangeal' for me too please


PS: don't get weird ideas on the 'place where no one has gone before' stint ... that only refers to ur fetish for trek-o

YES! Good timing. Funny thing is, two of my friend's sisters are getting married(NOT to each other!), and....my sister's wedding's been planned as well! Bing!
Hmm...at this rate you'll be known as "The Matchmaker." Y'know, find another guy at their wedding...preferably drunk.
Will SOMEBODY (and I know who) visit my blog.Ok, I'm shamelessly advertising it...it's rather dark now, but it'll hopefully get lighter. Needs a lot of work...k, I'm off...
