I've been thinking about what makes me angry about people. This generally revolves around what makes me dislike people, given, that I don't think I'm too fussy or judgmental as a person. Here are some examples of people I dislike. The main purpose of me putting it in here, is to cross check with all of you, on whether these are the types of people that you dislike too.. or if I'm just crazy.

  • Men who behave inefficiently. Like the sort that don't cook, don't iron, don't clean, don't run errands (pay bills), don't play sports but who think they know everything. My question is, when you don't do half the things everyone does, what makes you think you know anything at all?
  • Men who refer to a woman's body using any of the following adjectives: structure, figure (figaaaarrrr), plus one, minus 2 and so on. These are also the sort of men, who when driving would nearly crash into an oncoming vehicle because they're eyes were roaming.
  • Friends who want to know everything about you and earn your trust. Then when you least expect it, you hear from some one else, that this friend of yours has a boyfriend (that you didn't know about) or is married (that you didn't know about) etc. Unless you're frigging James Bond, why so secretive? Ok fine, you're a private person.. then why do you want to know everything about everyone else?
  • Women who forget they had a life before they had their significant others. The sort that you could have known all your life, to have them disappear on you completely, when they are in a relationship. The sort that would put the needs of the significant other, above and over everything else. I mean, really?
  • Women who play victim. Or Men who play victim. The sort that weave sad stories of their whole lives, such that you feel such sympathy for them that you know their life is so bad or people treat them so bad. This was a lesson for me, and a difficult one to learn. Somewhere in you head, you ask yourself WHY? Why do these sort of things only happen to THAT person.. and then you figure it out. It's that person that put themselves in situations where they can be taken advantage of. I mean, if you're an older woman dating a guy younger than you by 8 years, then it shouldn't be a shock, when he leaves you for a woman closer to his age or when he breaks up with you and the relationship does not work out. The only think you could be a victim of, would be your own out of the box imagination!
Ahhhhh.. feel better already :) So am I crazy?

since you are a animal lover...would you like to adopt a kitten ....i'v got 4 and looking for a "worthy" serious :)

Hi Anon, I would love to house a kitten though I don't think she/he would be safe in my house with our dog. He's not a fierce dog, but given I haven't seen him around cats it would be risky. I am wondering though, if you'd be willing get have one adopted by a friend of mine who has had several cats and i guess, and has a roaming male cat that increasingly doesn't come back home. I could ask them and if you're game, we can come kitty hunting :)
Anonymous said… one more kitten of the 4 to be adopted....tired of fools who approach to get a pet and knows jack shit about animals...thanks for the concern...sorry for the delayed response, i rarely visit ur blog nowadays.

Oooh.. have you been busy with other stuff? let me check with my friend to see if they still want one and well we'll make it a date!

and yea, i remember i bought fish a while ago, and then brought them home and thought i'd start off taking care of some fish as well. they passed away within the week and i felt shit. then realized, that given i knew nothing about them, i had no business buying them in the first place.

Where to get Rosemary, Sage, Basil, Thyme in Bangalore?

There was a time in Bangalore when finding exotic herbs involved a trip to some remote farm in Ooty and finding out their supply route to Bangalore.

Thankfully, much has changed.

Look what I found at Namdharis..namely the one on M.M road, off Mosque Road, Fraser Town.

I felt like a kid in a candy store! Recipes to what I've used them for, to follow!! 

I recall seeing a collection of the same, in 1 MG Road, opposite Taj Vivanta as well, in case that is closer to you.

PS. I also found thyme, but I forgot to photograph it. Got all the herbs + salad leaves for Rs. 105

Off Products Available in India: Not Tested on Animals- India

A while ago, I turned vegan. It took me three months, to turn myself out of it, but I can safely say, that that experience changed the person in me. It started off with this documentary  and hit me hard. Possibly, owning a dog made a difference, the fact that I know him and have realized that 'they' deserve better.

Anyhow, I've never looked at a piece of chicken the same way. I couldn't keep myself vegan, so I've done the best that I can do, given my shoddy will power. It's not much, but it is something, and honestly, it's not debatable. No camel, elephant rides. No zoos or circuses, wool, leather, feathers or shells. I'm leaving them alone, materially.

And the most recent change has been with cosmetics and toiletries. I was luckier when I started off a couple of months ago, that I am now. The stock of products that I've had, has run out, and where before I was looking for shampoo/conditioner/body wash, I find myself looking for kajal, mascarra a…

L'Oreal Creme Gloss- Dark Chocolate (323)

I thought I'd try my hand at a product review & the product in question is the new shade 323 (Dark Chocolate) from L'Oreal.

How I bought it: At Health & Glow

$$$: Rs 425

Comments: There were plenty of 'test for allergy' warnings all over the box. Was kind of hard to miss the warning, but I did not heed it as I had used the product (not the same shade) before. Application was easy, and the instructions are very simple and can be followed to the letter. The smell, the texture and all the tools provided were perfect, very honestly, I love using L'Oreal hair colour more because of the ease, as I can do it myself at home. After washing out the dye, the hair was also glossy and bouncy, which made me feel less guilty about colouring it.

What I was not happy with, was the end result: the colour. It was very close to the actual shade of my hair, which I'd always thought was black. The product seemed to make my hair blacker than before, as opposed to the chocolate …
