My date on a rainy August evening

Today has been one of those afternoons when you're grateful to be back home from work, although, technically, 4.30 PM isn't afternoon but when compared with 7ish, it kind of seems right. I didn't have to wait for the bus for long and everything seemed to be going perfect as I lay down on my couch at home after a late lunch, relaxed and watching 'Kick Ass' on TV, when the electricity went off. I almost cursed. Tuesdays are not the days when they do that. This treatment is reserved for Fridays, and even then, we know when to expect it. But this was totally unplanned, this sudden cut off and I didn't know what to do.

Grandma's Wise Thoughts: #1

I've been around on this planet for a little over 25 years, and in those 25 years, I've seen a lot, experienced a lot and learnt a lot; and I feel I owe it to the world to share my wisdom and help others reap the fruits. Long story short, I have a whole lot of shit to say about every damn thing that I see or come across, and I'm just going to put it into words here. I'm going to call it “Grandma's Wise Thoughts” because I've been called a Grandma on more than one occasion when I've been kind enough to share these thoughts with others. How rude!!

A whole lot of nothing

I've been wanting to write for a really long time. So much that sentences have been forming in my head while I'm walking down the street or listening to music or taking a shower. (Actually a lot of ideas come up in the shower. I wonder if it's just me or it happens to everyone. But that's a post for another time.) And now that I am home alone (for the next thirty minutes or so) it seems to be the perfect environment to come up with a decent piece of writing, what with the peace and quiet around the house and all. Because once the other ladies in the house are back, the hustle bustle in the house will go on till after midnight, and I am trying to not be the night owl that I was before for many reasons, the top most being that I am trying to get rid of my dark circles because I am getting married in less than seven months.
