This and That : When swine flew!

The alarm clock started singing mauja hi mauja. I hit it hard on its head and went back to sleep. And down went my walking plans for the nth time! So there! This is what happens if I let a little break creep into my nicely laid out routine life…and then the break becomes my routine. You get the drift. Yeah I am a routine freak. Newton would have loved to have me as a sample – a creature who loves to be in the state of whatever-state-she-is-in! But one fine day it dawned upon me that I have this tiny whiny cyberspace. So, now I just need to break this state of laziness; of setting-alarm-and-shutting-it-up-and-sleeping-back, carting-myself-to-work-to-get-bored, back-home-and-ofcos-sleep-again with nothing in between. And what could be better than scribbling on my blog.

Well, where do I begin? OK, I want to confess that I am one of those who got into panic due to recent flu in the town. But, it was certainly not on the day I read about the poor young little girl Reida, who was the first (recorded) victim of this swinest swine flu. Pune still seemed quite far off from Mumbai. But, the day I got to know that a class 12th student in the very school my kids go to, has contacted this virus and has been rushed to Kasturba hospital, thats the day I got my first panic attack. Somehow, it felt too close now. I admit, that I was one of those who paid an exorbitant 25 rs for masks which actually are worth only 5-10. But ofcourse, now I am recovering from the panic attack. I am seeing to it that hands are washed often with soap and water, lots of fluid intake is happening and overall hygiene s maintained in the household. Besides that certain herbs like turmeric and tulsi are being used more! I guess, awareness is the key. And here goes my prayer to the Almighty to cause no more deaths due to this viral attack.

That brings me to another point. I wanted to see Kaminey so very badly! But it will release in Mumbai only on monday. Sigh! Let me see if I can catch hold of tickets for monday then.

BTW, to all those who kept banging the doors of this sleeping blog to check if I am fine, you people are a sweetheart and hopefully I will be more regular now. To all those who tagged me, you people are also sweethearts for still having hopes on me :-), I will do them soon!

Oh yeah, and I bought a treadmill. Hopefully walking will happen more often now. and hope the same for blogging ;)

Heres wishing all a very happy independance day. Lets hope we learn to become more responsible citizens and India shines in the real sense of the word.

Finally...Vanakkam Back...

Kaminey dekho aur jald se ek apne style ka review chhapo..

I am thinking of buying either home gym or treadmill...treadmill kitna pada...? Home gym 10-13K ke beech aa jaata hai (excluding the treadmill)..

Reema August 19, 2009 at 10:14 PM  

hey welcome back! be regular now!

Anonymous,  August 20, 2009 at 2:39 PM  

phewwww finally!! ur back! i kept seing the burnt cake and wondered whatever happened to yu :P
so... welcome back..and no need to confess.everyone had had ths panick of teh swine flu one day or the other!!

WhatsInAName August 20, 2009 at 10:36 PM  

hey Vee :)
I bought it for 23 K! Actually more than toning, we were only looking at regular walk aid! Hence this. But 13K for home gym is quite good! Go for it. Anyway, my view is that walking shud be done in open air... not in stuffed places!

Thanks Reema :)
Yeah hopefully!

Verbi! :))
hahaha! Seriously I got sick and tired of the burnt cake too ;)

avdi August 27, 2009 at 8:07 AM  

WI, Great ! This just shows how right we are in missing you.

Are we going to see the svelte you soon? Maybe you should invite smita to stay with you for a few days and lose that weight she re-accumulated.

Mamma mia! Me a mamma? August 27, 2009 at 11:44 PM
