Promotion!

After 3+ years in the industry, hopping 2 companies I recently got promoted as team lead.  So first day when they announced I was like Really? Whaaat? Me?  *had an expression like I have won the Oscar accidentally all day*. I had to run to the Loo calm my nerves and come back give a speech that I understand the responsibility, I will give my best yada yada yada yawn  yawn. 

I went home skipped hopped and danced gave promotion party to aunt, text-ed all my friends and was swelling with pride every time I “congrats babe” reply 🙂 🙂 *Nope I didn’t put it as my watsapp status or any social media status even though I was tempted to do so, but remembered all the  poor people I had made fun off for doing the same* So finally I slept with dreams of me in  Calvin Klein jackets, shiny long cars and being  India’s own Sheryl Sandberg or Marissa Mayer.

Next day when I got up as excited as the first day of school took extra time to prettify myself, reached office with full ishtyle switched on the computer, opened my outlook hit F9 then got 6 e-mails of Action Plans. Only then it occurred to me OMG I’m now responsible for 6 people *glass shattered imagine myself in black and white types old aunty trying to manage 6 cranky notorious types kids even I was one of them only yesterday* ok may be I’m exaggerating but its true,

  1. Your friends will start looking at you as a vamp out of ekta kapoors daily soaps
  2. They will stop telling you their plans, bloody hell I knew her boyfriend is coming this Friday and she will take a fake sick leave, but duh at least don’t  lie to me!
  3. Managers thinks just because every one  thought you were witty and smart before they will continue doing it. All of a sudden you will start looking like the dumbest person on earth
  4. That awkward lunch treat you give to your colleagues *forced to give to your colleagues* where no one will have any thing interesting to talk about other than scolding the system and you will be in the eternal dilemma to join them or shut your mouth and concentrate on the aloo paratha
  5. Sad part is, the same manager whom you have imagined  dancing for item numbers in meetings and thought the most dumb person on earth start looking like not so dumb and actually has a point in what he is saying
  6. You become responsible for the revenues generating
  7. Same breaks that you used to take with your friends start looking like waste of productive time, OMG I had never even thought of being productive in 3 years
  8. Team mates will take leave for reasons like my mother’s-neighbor’s-wife’s-brother ’s-girlfriend’s dog died and you will be the most heartless person to not to grant leave
  9. You will have to attend meetings and prepare yourself for questions like what is the target markets 1/4th interest in the future needs in terms of technical and functional requirement that can contemplated as a possible prospect?
  10. Now you understand and sympathize with your grumpy faced managers and leads

       There are no new jackets or shiny cars, its the same old you sitting in a cabin working through endless reports.  So suck up the excitement and get your ass back to work!

 

Grumpy,

Ms. Lipstick

Bugle Rock!

Hello Darlings!

How is life treating you?

How is mine you ask? I have no idea, I don’t even have time to stop for second and think about it.

Right now I’m working full time, doing post graduation part time, planning to start my small venture shortly, fell sick twice, was hospitalised once, and er, em, wedding plans started and Mom is going crazy. I never imagined getting married is hard work!!! venue, food, transport, guest lists, jewellery, gifts, rituals, clothes the list is end less!!

But then every thing is happening so fast, sad part none of the experience is registering in, I’m like some robot working. May be I need to take some time out. Hope fully next weekend is a long weekend 🙂

K is good, he is enjoying last few days of college life. And now we discuss properties and cars!!! It is happening for real, I’m getting married ufff!!

And speaking of cars, I need to buy a car my ancient kinetic is counting its last days. Totally confused on which car to buy, please suggest something for Bangalore traffic! I want a small car but not Reva or Tata Nano 😦 I was thinking of may be Chevrolet Beat, but then still research to be done.

And because of falling sick twice I have lost loads of weight 🙂 so to continue the progress I started running in the mornings, and so far it is good. It is the part of the day I look forward to.

And I’m full of marriage blues, if there is something like that. But I will write a separate post on it.

I will try and write more often. Happy New year to all who celebrate Ugadi!

And what is the title you, it is name of the park I go for running and I’m posting it from here!

Love,
Ms. Lipstick

Numbed

Hello peoples,
How are you doing? Its been a very long time since I wrote anything,.you can say I was being a just a lazy bum procrastinating all the posts, too lazy to complete the drafts.

Too much silence, so many things to share, all the pent up emotions have reached to a point that if I don’t share they’ll explode.

First things first, I have no words to express how I feel, I’m numbed since a week all I can do is silently pray for the Delhi girl. Too much said, protested, fought, discussed.  But that helplessness would never leave the minds of any Indian woman.

Erotica ???

Hmmm I finished reading HTBAW by Caitlin Moran for the second time, and I was quite drawn to a certain fact where she talks about how misogynist are our channels of exposure to sex for the young generation, how full of fantasy and imaginations were the works of great authors in her times that made people come just by reading them.

I had watched some porn on the internet in my teen days out of curiosity and what ever I had seen was definitely very misogynist, blonde+skinny+ girls with large breasts were beaten abused drawn around by alien like looking men and it didn’t arouse me one bit, the whole act was very disturbing and disgusting to me and I stopped watching them.

I decided to explore what Ms. Moran was telling. So a week ago I downloaded some erotic literature and started reading them, for one whole week I read erotica every where I read them in the night, in the morning, in the bus, in the lunch breaks, while watching TV. And yes she was right it was amazing, orgasms were referred to the dawn of thousand suns , heat between the legs, sensation of flowing river, womanhood, manhood such beautiful words, kisses that felt like end of the world.

I am glad I read them because if I hadn’t I would have definitely missed something important.

Have you ever read or enjoyed reading erotica?

Of many Of’s

Of Weekend:

Weekend was relaxing, I saw Raaz 3 in 3D on Saturday with MR it was dumb and boring and not one bit scary L, then did some grocery shopping at the super market, got home cooked, ate, fought and MR had to leave.  As soon as he left I got back to my usual lazy self, did nothing bust surfed the channels, I cannot tell you how much I hate staying alone L

Sunday I had sakku bai’s spirit in me, and my house had transformed to Dhobi Ghat, I washed truck loads of clothes L I was dead tired by 4.00 PM then I cleaned the kitchen sparkling clean made rice, vegetable sambhar and French omelet for dinner my uncle had come over for dinner.

Again surfed channels till 1.00 AM and went to bed. I am hooked to the new series of Grey’s Anatomy. And I can never get tired of watching Sex and the city J

Of Smoking:

Ok I am soo deviating from the sole pupose of starting this blogs, now a days all I write about is random updates of my life which I can share with anyone, why should I need an anonymous blog for that.

If you don’t remember I started this blog to share things which I might not share with anyone I know in person. To share things and not worry about the judgments made, be fearless and honest.  So from now I will write about those stuffs.

I SMOKE, I am not an addict but I still smoke, may be once in 3 months or sometimes more than a year. I don’t smoke because I am happy or sad I smoke when the cigarette is available or when I am tempted by seeing someone smoke in front of me.

It started out of curiosity, once my uncle had forgotten a pack of cigarettes at our house, so it was just lying there tempting after many failed attempts I finally picked it up, made sure no one is looking at me and took it to the bathroom upstairs, switched on the exhaust fan, lit the cigarette with the match stick, took the first puff and Yuck! it was terrible, I threw it in the basin and flushed and it did not go in!!!! I panicked I flushed many times but god it dint budge it was floating there like white poo, which won’t go in even after flushing a million times.

I had started having thoughts of picking it with my hand the mere thought of it made me want to throw up, finally my brain worked and I filled two buckets of water and forced it inside the basin and finally it went! By this time I was breathing hard and sweating all over like I had just dug a grave!

Enough of gross details, that is how I had my first smoke, after that I smoked couple of times with my brother on our terrace, it instantly made me coolest sister among his friends. As I said I am not addicted to smoke, nor does it give me any high,  all it gives me is a bad breath. But I agree it fascinates me, the way we drag the smoke keep it inside us and then blow out the smoke. It makes me feel different, like telling the world I am not so good after all, I don’t follow your rule book.

Last week I, my brother and his friend did a all night out, coke, cigarettes and horror stories. Time flew by before I realize I had smoked 7 cigarettes, I kind of got a hang of it and again smoked 3 cigarettes the following days. Which brings my total smoke count to 26 (yes I do keep a count).

MR does not smoke though I made him try it with me once, yes I am the spoilt person in our relationship, I was the one who introduced MR to smoking, drinking (cashew fenny and Vodka both he didn’t like L), sneaking to the terrace for a quick smooch J

Of Goodbye:

Yes MR’s vacation got over, he is leaving today evening. I will write a separate post on that. For now let’s just say I am really, really SAD.

Of Festival:

Nope, no preparations yet. Oh my God!!

Of New Job:

Not so new anymore. But it is going well.

So how is life treating you????

Love,

Ms. Lipstick
