Gather ye Rose buds

Remember the time when I went into hiding?I'd thought that everyone would have forgotten me already,but lo! One fine day I decide to resurface,I found two lovely awards waiting for me and that made me feel so special and motivated me to continue blogging once more,however busy coping up with college and studies I maybe.Thank you!Your love and support means a lot to me my darling bloggy friends!

And now to pass on the awards..

This award was given to me by Avada Kedavra, who writes a mean blog and became one of my first bloggy friends.Thank you SO MUCH!

I want to give out this award to...

Bookpusher @ The Genteel Arsenal:Another dear bloggy friend who has an awesome book blog.

Sharazad @The Dangerous Pages Review:Appreciating her efforts for leading a campaign of sorts against banning books.The power of the pen,after all,knows no equal.

The next award was given to me by Bookpusher-The Heartfelt Award :)

Do you reach for a cup of cocoa or tea when you’re relaxing, seeking comfort, sharing a plate of cookies with family & friends?You know that feeling you get when you drink a yummy cup of cocoa, tea ~ or a hot toddy?

That is what the Heartfelt award is all about feeling warm inside!

TMI Thursday:Pet Woes

Lilu right there has an AMAZING blog,and I swear,if you read her and you aint pissing your pants from laughter,there's something wrong with you.REALLY.So yes,I thought I'd embarass myself today...its not exactly a novel concept in my life,but I haven't done so,so far here on my blog.No,REALLY.I don't mind. Actually I do...I have a limited readership and I'm so jeopardising it.But teehee I so wanted to take part in her TMI Thursdays.Whoopdida.

TMI Thursday

There was a time I wanted to have a fur ball of my very own,you know,the kind thats not just stuffed and actually breathes,and cuddles and pees on your neighbour's doorstep?Um yes so I did,you did too and your parents were probably nice enough to get you one,clean up his poop and not grumble.But no.I got a fish tank,the occupants of which died within two weeks and that was the end of it all.Or so they thought,until last year April when dad brought home this
Cute?Yes,I thought so too.Infact I still do,though in one year he transformed me from daddy's little girl to a certified poop scooper.But I love the little bugger.

How can you NOT love this face?

But lately,our little boy has had a little problem.Though he is just one and a half,he is on a sexin' over drive and thinks its okay to have a little hump-di-do when no one's watching.Actually he doesn't care if anyone is watching or not.What can I say?He's a dog!And since I do all the take-caring,poop cleaning,cuddling,he has been climbing up my leg a little too often.

The other day while I was sleeping I had this strange dream that I was in a ship that was about to be ship wrecked.The ship rocked and rolled horriblly,and I did too.And then I woke up with pungent doggy breath in my face.Gypsy wagged his furry rear like a mini windmill and licked my face-chin to forehead,rolled over and lay sprawled on my bed.It was a hot afternoon,I stretched and lazily my hand landed slap on my thigh and came in contact with something wet.Sticky.Bogeylike.Ugh.

If you are eating,I'd request you to keep it away for a moment.Or I guess the damage is already done.

And are you wondering what my furball did to me?I was shell shocked,and TOTALLY grossed out.You would too,if you found out that you were jizzed on by your dog.

Indecisiveness,rain and back again


I have had a major change mind,yes,AGAIN.I know you wish to hang me upside down and pretend that I'm a pinata,but really I assure you,this was the final swing.I solemnly swear that though mostly I'm upto no good,I'll be loyal to this blog of mine.A new blog DIDNOT work wonders,and I felt incredible pangs of guilt for abandoning her(yes she is my girl).Mama missed you,Mama may pave hell with you,dress and undress you as frequently as possible,publish her nincompoopery though you,but,always remember Mama loves you *sniff*.

So yes,once and for all,the Final Verdict is:Miss Nobody is to strictly restrict her shoutouts,thoughts and litery nothings within thepages/posts of this,and THIS blog only or she farted at.So there.


Its been raining continuously the past three days,don't get me wrong I love it when it would too,if you lived where its summer for more than nine months or just for the sheer raininess of it *heh*.I always love a good pour,and thats what happens here in Kolkata,East India...we even have a saying "It never rains,but pours in India(well the parts where it rains anyway)". This rain might ease the drought situation that was to arise,and would largely makeup for its failure to arrive at the expected time.I bet the farmers are doing their bit of Jingalala, and so are we since the rising price of food (grains as well as vegetables) was not a matter of celebration at all.
But enough is enough already!I love to sit back at home with a good book and a steaming cup of coffee(black) watching the rain lash at the windows and later at the twilight of their intensity watching them slow to a drizzle and fall in light crystal sheets.But,I don't have the scope to take off whenever I want since college started and I do not appreciate the slush and being pressed against wet smelly strangers in crowded buses as a daily commuter.Boo.Plus yesterday I didn't feel like being a part of Alexander Selkirk's solitude,and did what all smart girls do when the gloom's curling black tendrils get to them..
..I went shopping,yaay!
And now two flipflops richer and waiting for a new haircut,I'm feeling considerably happier.
Besides,Bookpusher and Avada Kedavra have been really good bloggy friends.I was given two awards while I was in hibernation.I'll be passing them out shortly :)

Omg,the week is draaaaaaaaging.Argh.
Hows yours so far?
