Movers? No Pizza for you

Don't ask me why... let me just say that the experience of having offered... well, stinks! :)

We're all moved in, still a bunch of unpacked boxes lying around. But it finally feels like home. And despite the apparent lack of interest men show in all things domestic, its just a big old sham! My husband loves the place, stares out all windows admiring the view, and missed the old place all of ONE minute! :)

Ok, I have a confession to make. I lost my temper rather viciously with him for a very small reason... and I feel very very bad for it. I may blame it on tiredness, and I was VERY tired too. But to be, well, honest, I think it was just a case of "Power corrupts. And absolute power corrupts absolutely." Yep, in a-Snowball-of-George-Orwell-fame-way.

It happened like this: As the day wore on, I found my better half (I'll give you that only this time mind) depending more and more on me for all the decision-making. I felt powerful, and in the absence of sugar (chocolate), power rushed to my head. Fueled by "The Find" - a plastic bag filled with garbage, neatly stashed in one of the boxes packed by the perpetrator (my husband, for clarification, in case the story so far has befuddled your brains) - my rage came as a complete surprise to the poor, unsuspecting humanoid from Mars!

Oh come on! I feel bad enough. I definitely am owed a lousy excuse to be a steam kettle for all that hard work I put in! Aren't I??

God and moving apartments

Alrite you got me... they really haven't got much to do with each other except for the fact that thinking about both is scheduled for me this week for completion by the weekend! :)

One's a theme for a read meet and the other an actual task...

Moving on: using my blog today as an excuse to e-ink with my new shiny apple laptop, my very first mac!! my candid exprience till date? I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT!!! :)

Good to know that apple is going the mass consumer way... for us lesser beings who are officially non-geeky and fat but still would love to be seen alongside a beautiful and slender Mac! (Yes I am smitten, can you tell??)

Except for the battery life no complaints so far.

Also the next beautiful thing scheduled for me is my new apartment... a dream home on lease for a year... we pay our entire salary towards the rent, but that's something I'd rather not admit to in public :D So this beauty of an apartment is right by the marina (I told my niece we can go fishing in our balcony next weekend, you can join us if you like!) and has a gorgeous view of the Lady Liberty. Ok so we'll probably enjoy the apartment for all of three spectacular summer months and then get grouchy about it all of winter (which equates to about 3/4ths of a year!) - not so much cos its unbearably cold (its not really) but cos I'll have howling windows by the bedroom window, and you know what howling winds can do to my alien invasion nightmares... yes, they just add the sound track to those little movie clips of my imagination. And being the-evil-breaker-of-neighboring-arms-while-watching-scary-movies-through-fingerly-gaps that I am, its really not cool :)

And yes the God thing, well its just that I have to write something around that topic for this meet thingie I have scheduled. I really hate the person who set me up for this... wait a minute, wasn't that person me?

Ok my new year's resolution, not to set myself up for things I know I will procrastinate doing. Now all I have to do is wait for December 31st to make it (the resolution)! :)
