July 2013 Challenge- Here I come!

In my last post, I know I said I will complete the May challenge. And that was because I wanted some prompts to keep me going. But guess what? Looks like there are no dearths for challenges in the blogging world.
Paula at Paula's Place has a challenge all setup for July..

So here I take the plunge. (again!)
Given the history with me and blog challenges, I hope I complete at-least this one!

I leave you today with another Australian slang I learnt recently

It's exxy!!!

Take a guess what it means. No, no googling! (pssst, its not what you think (at least it was not what I thought (tee hee!) ) )

Hello World!

Disappearing without as much as a goodbye is unpardonable, I know. But you know what? It's a manufacturing defect. I do it all the time. In real life too. I keep hearing things like "don't you dare do the Houdini on me again", " are you still alive?!",  "You, Richard Parker", etc from my friends.
But now and then, I just slip into my cocoon and I have absolutely no idea why. (Maybe I just run out of things to say (or in this case 'write').
So like I was saying, it is a manufacturing defect. And if any of you have any complaints, take it up with my manufacturer. I am sure He must be running a customer support that you can contact. :D

So that out of the way, let's get down to business.

First off, I have an update - I found myself a job. Actually, that's not entirely true.  I din't find myself a job. My friend found one for me. Thanks S!

and Secondly, since I left the BEDIM challenge halfway..er..quarter-way, I thought I will try and complete it anyways. But only at my pace (giggle!)

That's all for now! I hope all of you are fighting fit!
Hooroo! (btw that's a slang in Australia meaning Goodbye!)

7. i Am aFraiD oF..

Day 7, Tuesday: The thing(s) you're most afraid of

I am petrified of absolutely anything and everything

I am afraid of the dark! (Don't keep staring into this photo.. Its got nothing in there except DARK!)

I am afraid of what the future might hold.
I am afraid of change.
I am afraid of roller coasters.
I am afraid of hospitals.
I am afraid of dogs and la cucarachas.
I am afraid of ghosts.
I am afraid of losing my loved ones.
I am afraid of lightning and thunder. (You can find me under the cot mostly, when it thunders)
I am afraid of not having a kid call me mommy.
I am afraid of death (or the oblivion of what awaits me after)

I am afraid to think that I still have 24 more posts to go before I complete BEDIM challenge (sigh!)

6. wHat dO I Do?

Day 6, Monday: If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?

Ok Day 6 is NOT good. Anyone who has read this post of mine, will know how much I like being asked this question. For those of you who don't, here's a detail of one typical weekday of my life.

Now, it is surprising how simple things can create a jolt in one's life. (Like today, it nearly jolted my husband just to see me awake at 8:00 am in the morning). Fine! I am not a morning person. ok? I usually wake up around 8:30 - 9 ish (Its not like I have a job to get to or something)
Usually I finish all the morning rituals (includes all the brushing, washing, breakfast, etc) and then make myself a tea (yeah that's right. I am a tea person) at around 10-ish.
With my tea, I switch on my laptop. First thing I check is all the comments from my previous posts followed by reading all the posts of my blogging friends. From 12:00-1, I watch the re-run of Charmed on Channel 11. (I am a witch fan, remember?)

And then I make lunch, eat lunch, check if I have any more blog comments... take a walk in the park, make dinner, check for comments....pack next day's lunch for hus, sketch (if i feel like), check for comments... dance around a little bit, watch a movie, check for comments... eat dinner, do dishes, check for comments... skype friends, blog my BEDIM post, check for more comments..switch off laptop, read book, pray and sleep!

Voila! there you have it! Well, any comments?

5. pUbliCly pRofeSsinG mY lOvE..

Day 5, Sunday: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don't have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member

I am a neophyte to blogging and I haven't had a chance to know my fellow bloggers as much as I would love to. So I decided to go with a real-life friend. 

Certain people come into your life for a reason. They are with you throughout when you need them.  

You laugh together. You cry together.You do all the crazy things together. 
They have seen you in the worst and don't pass any judgements. They make you feel on top of the world. They endure all your crazy tantrums just ensuring they are there for you.They pick you up when you fall down. They fight with you. They make-up with you. They listen to you. They teach you to trust.

And yes! I am lucky to have one such friend. 
Thank you for being there, A!

4. mY faVoRiTe quOtE..

Day 4, Saturday: Favorite quote (from a person, from a book, etc) and why you love it

I have never been a great fan of quotes. But if I have to pick one its got to be this.

“For every quote out there, there is an equal and opposite quote somewhere else!”

And why I love it? because it is so true.

A silent man is a wise one.
A man without words is a man without thoughts.

What will be, will be.
Life is what you make it.

Never too old to learn.
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

Cross your bridges when you come to them.
Forewarned is forearmed.
