My pujo romance is over, sniffe sniffle. There was a very watery hindi-filmi style farewell standing on the steps of a station yesterday (metro station actually, not railway........and well.....all the water wasn't because I was playing the weepy distressed damsel but because it was raining, but still a farewell is a farewell!!!)

And when asked for sympathy all that a certain mistah anonymous had to offer, after laughing his ass off, was
"aaschey bochhor aabar hobey"

So I am presently wallowing in glorious self-pity and an inordinate amount of tissue paper. After the excitement, it's the sniffles. Of course the sniffles aren't exactly generated by the loss of romance. It's the tragic outcome of sitting in Sompeplace Else, too often and for too long, where the management really believes that the air-conditioning machines are not for decoration. Of course the nearly frozen beer might have been partially responsible for the current nearly-Vermillion state of my nose. And for those who were there at the blogmeet, I might add that having frozen bits of double-cream-and-chocolate sundaes dropped on my hair probably aggravated the fever (yes, Rimi, this is meant to make you feel guilty......only you being the heard-hearted thing you are, you won't.......glub glub)

sigh........here I am then.......quite merrily morose.......sniffling at regular intervals and wishing I could write suitably depressed poetry.......also wishing I could find words harsh enough to describe how much I dislike certain people.....grrrrrr.....especially those who work for a living and give unemployed bloggers and baby fishes the inferiority complex.

hmm......and I shall now decamp to dwell on all the great miseries of life......like neighbours who spend all afternoon reciting dramatic poetry at the top of their voices.......or teach their young ones how to howl to the accompaniment of a harmonium (and try to pass it off as singing!!!)

Also on parents who adore each other so much that they're currently mooning around the house sighing in harmonized depression becasue they're about to be parted for the space of about ten days........what did I do to deserve parents who are so in luuuubh!!! The loving is fine, it's the mooning and the occasional disappearing for quiet look-into-my-eyes type mushy dates by the riverside that can be quite disturbing......

Please note the parting is due because my mother is off to visit older sister in Hyderabad on the twenty-sisxth. Please, also note, that my father is so-o-o-o worried about her safety that he's packing me off as well!!!!!!! waaaaaaah......I don't wanna go!!!!!!!

glub glub........what will I do without my blog for so many days......what will I do without my one solitary bright spark who shall here go unnamed *blush*.........me thinks I will pine away...........will everyone forget me when I'm gone?!!!

achha jus curious.... wats babelfish mean?? nething to do with the "baby fish" mentioned in this post??? and rimi dropped chocolate sundae on your hair??? the &^%&$@#$*( ...such a colossal waste!!!

Hi! That was a nice intro :)
Hyderabad is a nice place. Holiday romance ... ? Maybe? :)

3:21 PM  
Blogger Prerona said...

why do u guys never wanna leave cal? u live there. i've been trying to beg / bribe / threaten my kid sister to visit me in scotland but she doesnt wanna leave cal 'right now' ... and its been like that for ever :(

3:23 PM  
Blogger babelfish said...

prerona : thank you dear!!! way glad the sales pitch worked :D

holiday romance I don't know about..now if it was Scotland I was going to that would be a different kilt of fish :D but in Hyderabad all that appeals is the food :)

And you know I'm all very sympathetic about the sister you're pining for (I love my sister too, most of the time) but leaving Cal is a huge wrench :(

anyway,would u rather have parents like mine?my mother once chased my father round the dining table with the water jug.it was exactly like a cartoon.

Blogger babelfish said...

umm.....young lady, did your mother ever throw a heavy stone ashtray at your father the second he entered home because he had been taking pictures of other young lady (you know the one I mean, mother of two daughters and all and I still don't know where the ashtray came from, since no-one smokes in my house!!!)

Hah!!! that's love for you...and yes I quite agree the timing couldn't be worse :(

My mother once pured a glass of water into my father's dinner while he was eating!
One of those incidents, when she was in 1st gear!

Nowadays, she accelerates and decelerates between 3rd and 5th gear!
