I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks! You are my visitor number,

    Wednesday

    Strictly personal


    The norm seems to be writing something special for one's own birthday in one's blog.
    But 27 is sooo unremarkable. Its in a limbo, without the surprise of leaving the 18-25 age bracket or the heady excitement of turning 21 or the worries of reaching 25 that you feel in the years 22-24.
    27 is not quite 30, even though people take great pains in reminding you that it might as well be 30, nor is it like being in your mid 20s. It does however feel like an easy and comfortable age when maturity is somehow not such a freaky thing.
    Nyway, celebrated the unremarkable monday in just they way I wanted it- casual dinner for a couple of hours with two of my good friends, ending with icecream :). Ofcourse I also went did what any woman my age would do - i.e. buy a dress a size smaller on sale just so I can fit into it 3 months later!
    Birthday presents this year were sweet but not necessary (and this time I did mean it) ; the Tax return cheque in the mail was a delightful surprise I must say though. hmmm....use it to pay for the ticket to vancouver or a new 4MP digital camera....decisions decision...what would a mature 27 yr old do I wonder?

    In other news around town- leaves are budding like caterpillars on trees, birds are hesitantly chirping, earthworms are coming out to die on sidewalks, people are having to buy new umbrellas everyday.....ahh Spring in TO!
    Its a beautiful thing.
    Need new sandals though.

    A belated happy birthday!

    You know something, people start to treat you like you are old when you cross thirty. And you have nightmares when you think that you have lost half of your life and less than that in spares. I have been having that terrible feeling for a while. Its like you're 25 in heart and in face but there's a cute portruding tummy saying you're not. If you are married and have a kid, you are bestowed with lots of responsibity and everybody expects you have the right attitude and interact with in-laws as a mature person. But deep inside you dont wanna act in this play; you want to escape, runaway to be 25 again and be treated like that.

    I wish I could turn back the clock and fix it somewhere where life is at its best.
