Wish you all a very happy new year, peoples! a year that you can look back on fondly and tell your grandchildren, "2009 was a good year, you know....'
The first working day of the new year 2009, and I have no resolutions whatsoever, except
- give up a few of my cards.
I end up paying at least 2000 bucks as late fee/interest, almost on a monthly basis across the 5 cards I have. The husband tells me he will change his name if I can prove that I have spent a paisa less than 10K on credit card charges.
10K! Is he mad or what? My hard earned money! So many other things to spend on, so many other worthwhile causes to donate to, if I'm going to end up just giving my money away.. At least I would feel good about it rather than aggrieved. And there would be less of finger pointing in chez JLT. So to maintain cordial marital relations, I plan to give up at least 2 of my cards.
That will leave me with just two dates I have to be paranoid about remembering, and less reasons for the husband to pile on me. Not that he needs a reason. Gah!
Is it something wrong with me, or am I right in thinking some people totally obnoxious?
There is this girl I meet regularly in office, at the loo. She has till date never exchanged a Hi (even a perfunctory one) but has asked me at various times for
Today was heights! Its the first working day of the year, and you would think she could at least wish me a happy new year in return? You think wrong.
Mademoiselle was standing squarely in front of the mirror,looking at her nails and then she asks me- do you have a nail file or something?
What does she think I come to office for? To file my nails? Or maybe she thinks I'm a mobile beauty parlour. If I looked the part, I could excuse that thinking, but a bit of neutrally shaded lipstick is my sole claim to glamour.While she comes to office totally made up. Gah! These glamourpusses get on my nerves, I say! Or am I just getting older?
I haven't made any new year resolutions, but I sincerely hope all of my clients have made at least one. To give me business and plenty of business and at regular intervals, at that. Especially in these times, borrowing from Sonny boy's vocabulary,
I have LILLOMETERS to go
before I achieve my targets.
I thought I'd left those days behind me, but it seems I've not... The husband has been nagging me for at least a year now, but yesterday finally , after trying on a pair of trousers in the trial room I think maaaaaaybe I better start taking more care of my body and start trimming my not-so-little sign of prosperity. The trousers I tried on just. wouldn't. zip. up. No matter however much I held my tummy in/stopped breathing..... Gah!
One good by-product would be - the husband and I can stop sharing jeans. I do NOT wear his, he sneaks into mine when I'm not looking and goes off to the ATM or to drop Sonny boy to the school bus- with the button unbuttoned! Its too tight for him to button it, you see.
And on a related note, WHERE are those jeans/trousers that one could wear without showing one's panties? I'm SICK of finding only low waisted trousers wherever you go. One can't bend or stretch without the underpants showing. Gah! and this is all the more so when one has a trim waist and rather full hips. Ok, ok, a pear shaped body, if you insist. Seriously, why do almost all the trousers have to be in that slinky material? And are there really that many size 26's in adult women? If not, could the 26's and 28's be relegated to the kids' section and the women's section have more of 30 and 32 and 34 and...
Looking back, Gah! seems to be my favourite word in this post.....
