I welcome me back..and such other incoherent thoughts

January 20, 2009

Unemployment is highly under rated as a career option. I have taken to it so well, it is almost like I have never ever worked..or been to a office. Har Har.

Like I said somewhere, there is such a thing as too much of good food, books,sleep and a brat of a niece to play with all day long..

-You know you are getting old when you are one of the 2 remaining single girls in a mini-school reunion at a friend’s wedding. And conversations are no longer about guys and sex but husbands and pregnancy.Urgh!!

-You know you are still a immature silly twerp when you cannot have an adult conversation with your parents and use your elder sibling as a conduit to pass crucial info ..like…umm..that you plan to get married to XX by mm/dd/yyyy

– You know you are going nowhere when you see your peers scuttling ahead in the rat race

– But then when you talk to friends who left their job a year back and are still on the “taking a break” phase, you know you still have some time …before you become one of them, that is.

– You know its time to end this list ,which anyway was just an excuse to get people to notice your new clever header image ( S and me on a clothes line with the peg in the middle saying “Happily Unmarried”)…

For the record, I didn’t intend to cut Sid’s  face in half and put mine in full glory, for the pic- this was the best I could crop ..

    Although, you could have shown us less of his “crowning glory” and more of his facial area.

    lady…u belong to the lucky few who can afford this break! so go back and visit your “to-do” list and complete them!
    Like fitting into a waist size 28 pair of jeans or sitting behind a wheel and manoevouring it through traffic.

    so glad that regular programming has resumed.

    and even though i am happily married, i LOVE LOVE LOVE happily unmarried products. just wish “happily unmarried” wasn’t etched so obviously on all their products.

    Just yesterday I was told that if you are a swiss citizen and become unemployed you get paid 80% of your salary for 2 years !

    So you know what to do next !
