Back again!

This weekend has been one of the loveliest weekend in a long time. This is despite the fact that I did not get much time to myself or that I had to attend a wedding.


Being at the wedding was wearing me out. First of all, it was a big crowd. And quite a part of it was affluent crowd. I don't know what it is I have against people displaying their affluence. I guess it reminds me of certain people I don't wish to remember. Or perhaps it reminds me of what could have been but what is not. May be it just puts me off to see the way they flaunt it just to make themselves feel special - at the cost of making others feel unspecial. May be it was the whole façade thing - the unreal, the superficial or whatever. Ok. Whatever it was, I hated being there.


It was such a relief when we got back to my cousin's place after that. This meant that I was getting a chance to play with my cousin's children. My cousin and her family is visiting from the UK for a short while. This cousin of mine is my most favorite cousin. The older girl is about two and half years old and she was such fun. I had a wonderful time playing with her and singing 'Old MacDonald had a farm' with her!


Also, this weekend I got a message from my best buddy (who lives in an entirely different time zone) that she was going to call me! The thing is, it is very difficult to get her on the phone. She is traveling most of the time on work and I end up getting her voicemail most of the time. So, I waited for her call for a couple of evenings since she sent me the text. And the third evening when I was completely not expecting her call, my mobile phone starts ringing that ringtone! And I am staring at my mobile phone for a bit while it was flashing 'G calling…' I sat there digesting that for a moment and grabbed the phone to answer her!


We had a good chat for about 40 minutes. And she told me something that was like the cherry on the icing! (I am not free to disclose what it is now, but sometime in the future I will.) And she told me she has been reading my blog regularly!! :D

Welcome back into the blogosphere.

I really want to go into World Vision or with the One organization. I really enjoy working with those in third world nations. Although I will probably start working in a hospital doing family care with issue of pediatrics, physical or substance abuse. Right now I am working at a substance abuse treatment center and I love it.

Isn't it great to chat with friends? Sounds like a busy weekend...I'm not much for crowds either. Although I like a good party :D

I like the thingies you have on your blog. I ran into something like the clustermap on someone else's which I thought I'd get but it doesn't show a map. It only lists the places and number of people from each.

Me back from my holiday too. went for a wedding reception as well. my cousin's actually. nothing much to do after we got there. one thing i hate during weddings- the video cameras with that blinding light that goes along with it.. and somehow they always choose to film when we eat!!

@ Katie - It is good to be back!!

@ Trish - Oh yes. Chats with friends are one of the nicest things in the world! No crowds, but i do love to spend time with friends...

@ Anju - Ah well, what can i say? Guess i will put up with it for your sake. :P

@ Anju again - Aren't the thingies nice? I pick them up when i blog hop. I have to hold myself from picking up a lot of things and thus slowing the loading of my page. I like clustermap. You should also check out google.com/analytics

@ Maddy - Oh yes. The cameras are another annoying thing. But my brother gets more bothered by it than i...
