Sunshine Too Brief

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,


    Cheering up

    I was completely lied to about Vancouver or the earth is in real trouble now.
    How can it snow so much?!

    I'm smiling because at least it reminded me of Toronto :D Pretty no? But rain and not seeing the blue sky for days shall I put it eloquently?!

    So just in time for the SAD month, here's something to cheer up my gloomy days ahead.

    My nephew- Irfan, whom I'm missing terribly.
    He's now 18 months and loves cars, balls and muri(puffed rice).

    His first Halloween, he dressed as a Lion

    First time on the beach, he was already checking out the babes !

    "But I hate flowers, I don't want to send the babes flowers"

    "I'll call them instead"

    "Can I have some chocolate please?" - is what he is saying. But I'm not allowed to give him any yet)

    Now my other baby- Tusch, I'm happy to report, is very very happy at his foster home.
    As you can tell from the picture, he loves the new bed his foster grandparents gave him.

    He's made friends too. Here's his friend 'Rocky' with the injured paw

    He's even got a platonic girlfriend named Shady Lady who visits him every evening.

    Thanks so much to my dear J for taking such good care of him while I'm in Vancouver! Love you!


    Three more years till 2010!

    Happy New Year to everyone!
    Did you have a good new year's eve? Isn't it the most important night of the year?
    Unlike last year(link), I am hesitant about making resolutions this time. I want to because I know that way I actually keep them, but I'm not sure what I want to get accomplished this year.
    -I know I definitely want to lose 12-15 lbs and be a more active person.
    -I would like to get the career options sorted out- Grad school or otherwise.
    Beyond that- everything is kind of up in the air for me.
    I hope to make another attempt at going to see my relatives in Bangladesh sometime and get a place of my own again with my own stuff. I want to settle down in one place for good now, but it might be unlikely this year.

    I'm a little apprehensive about this year- somehow I feel its not going to be a happy one for me.
    Maybe I'll make my resolutions on my birthday instead of January- Just in case.

    Fingers crossed!
