My ongoing affair with clichés – an update

These are a few of the very vomity-clichéd things I’ve done in the last few days which almost qualify Shout as a racy chick-blog, and its author as the tantalising heroine of a chick-lit bestseller – How H Got Soaked, Put On a Few Kgs And Got a Life. Almost:

Got Mughal-garden-waterworks drenched in the rain, which is a very delightful thing I’ve re-realised for the millionth time. I was walking, it was dark, I was alone and I was thinking about the rain and something else. Something else didn’t happen. But it rained. Violently. Suddenly. Joyously. I felt suitably psychic and all.

Missed seeing the moon fill out, very sorely. Sometimes rain clouds aren’t a good thing.

Bought myself a large box of dark immoral chocolates. I’d gone to M’s place. M lives next to The Chocolatier, at the heart of mini Bengal where fish and football are Religion – which has nothing to do with chocolate, save perhaps for a very large big clichéd advertising notion [mine] of being. So it goes.

Sat up all night and watched cheesy movies with M and talked and talked and talked – about all the usual things. Direction. Purpose. Where we’ve reached with both. And how the bastard at Chungwa cheated us of the shrimp in the shrimp talumein by putting chicken, which I’ve stopped eating. Bastard. That’s just how some relationships are. Comfortable.

Now I want my favourite cheap Sula white to complement the dark bitter-sweet and this big cocoa-fat cliché. And, while I’m asking, a throw-in miracle would be nice.

I'm winding up for the pitch (Frank says I throw like a girl), aiming ,, catch that miracle girl!!!

Prude said...

Damn Damn Damn! I wud've walked back to chungwa just for a cliched fight!!! Grrrr.

H said...

Nan, dear dear darling Nan, someone said miracles get powered by thoughts and blinks, so I'm expecting a storm here with your very magnanimous throw. Hugs. Thankeeeeyooooo.

Prude, unfortunately, we ordered in. So by the time we got to realising what they'd done it was too late. But, something tells me we'll get along famously, girl. ;-)

what's wrong with chicken?

H said...

It happens not to be shrimp.

B Ditty said...

oh, I thought you meant you stopped eating chicken entirely.

H said...

Well actually that too. :-D

Dahling H! You may or may not be in the mood for this but I tagged you!

I'll have shrimp over chicken anyday! In fact I'll have ANYTHING else other than chicken anyday!

H said...

HB, and i'm going to heaven, aren't I?

Liz, I just knew you'd appreciate it. ;-)

M, it's going to take me a while, am just swamped with work, but I'm going to do it.

n.g. said...

sweetheart, i have just developed a liking for chicken, would you believe it. it is to be wayyy appetising than i thought. dont be disdainful of chicken, or i will sulk.

and you have put on weight? which means we can revoke the signature campaign against the metro coming to noida?

H said...

NG, my, aren't we attached to our chicken :-))

Yes well chocolate really goes places once it's in, na? Like the metro.

houseband00 said...

Dark immoral chocolates; a nice way of describing them chocs ... ;D

Though they're really sinful but when you pop one into your mouth, it's amazing!

H said...

Pricky, hello! Long time child. Where have you been? Well this chicken thing is a long story. When are you updating?

Kyels, welcome here :-) it so is. Oh and I must add here, that I loved your dawn pic. The skyline is really really pretty and clear in KL! Lovely. Like I was telling Lizza, I don’t know why I haven’t visited your blog before. Late though it is, but I’m glad I’ve discovered it! You’ll be seeing me around ;-)

Prude said...

B Ditty said...

H, if you don't post again soon I might hit a small child. I'd sure hate to have to hit a small child.

B Ditty said...

H said...

PS: ask your mommy if I can adopt you. long distance mothering suits me. very well.
