I am doused in my fave CK Eternity fragrance.
Today’s My Birthday.. and I had been sulking since afternoon yesterday. As I always do. Reason, I have to plan for the day on my Own.. I do try to get a cake (Wenger’s Butterscotch) and some pretty flowers all by myself and sit cozy to celebrate my day till evening. I often gift myself a thing or two. I have been doing this for years now. Of course, that’s too much for me. Given the fact that That’s the only day I have with me to celebrate..
So, instead of fretting up about the fact that I am all by myself; I have to hold myself up in one place and plan the celebration. I haven’t celebrated much in the last few years.. Last year, the day went by just like any other day.. Before that, I was locked up in a room in a Guest House. And a year before that, a jackal howled for hours outside my house door…
Not that I don’t celebrate my birthday. Just that, I haven’t been able to enjoy being careless; expecting “others” to plan my day. Often my parents (my dad) pretended to forget and so did my Uncle. Mom had never wanted me to make loud noises till I grew up. Phew..!! Ideals, I tell you.
This time, it has been very different. My regular readers are all going to laugh over- at what would amuse you the most, in the post to come. It’s 2 in the afternoon and yeah, it’s peaceful. I have now been conditioned this way. No loud noises or cluttering sounds..
I am loving everyone who is calling me up to wish. And hating anyone who is not calling me up despite having my cell number 😀 That’s right, how many of us really do that crawling out of the FB wall or email or that sms.
Not that I wasn’t happy reading the scratches up on the Wall. But then, I really miss the days when someone’s birthday used to be like a mini event. Going out to shop for cards and or gifts, wrapping them up carefully. I used to do them all personally. I also used to buy the flowers and arrange them on my own, in my own way at home. And then, execute a big surprise. Ask Ruby, my managers in Convergys and Baxy (I hope they liked it). It used to be a reason for my celebration too..
I had sat Thanking each one of them on my FB Wall. My Manager’s messages were also sat (the same managers). I am loving every bit of it. How many of us really can gather all contacts possible from last 25 years of her life within 4 months, manage to link with them and also get wished by all of them? I am really blessed.
Now, it is getting darker with each passing second. Is that how Divine Blessings pour? I’ll know if it pours.. I had left my nails without color for a week. So this muted gold frosted shade is sparkling with Brilliance. I like all things glittering. Don’t my Blog pics say it all? 🙂 I like bright, shiny and glittering objects. Full of sparkle and vivid reflecting brilliance. I had enjoyed a hot shower, after oiling my hair yesterday evening. I had gone to bed wearing my Fave night-T. All by sheer co- incidence. I had not done a single bit planning.
I just enjoyed a huge mug of coffee and now waiting for it to POUR..
Only last night I had dreamt of Minotaur. Now, waiting for the dream to unfold its mystery.
And my Boss is away at work…. BLISS!!!
