Not Part 4. Stop going Phew!

Ok people, it looks like something I started is going to end up as an epic that wont even make it to the Hall of Fame as the judges would sleep midway. This was not what I intended. I thought I would be done telling the story in one post (yeah rite!). But it goes on and on and on much to your dismay and my surprise. I seem to remember a lot for a person who doesn’t take notes. You must realize that each day was rich with memories that would normally fit in a month’s duration. Imagine I spent 30 days and I am just done with Day 3! I can’t seem to stop spilling all this clutter in my head. It’s good in a way; by writing this down in detail, I’ll stop torturing the people around me. I have to literally bite my tongue to stop relating episodes that happened in the past one month. Like when my colleague talks of Halloween, I have to bring up this story of this woman who bought pumpkins and decorated the office trailer so that we take care of her and her family by providing them housing soon. When my husband mentions something about brushing his teeth, I have already began telling him on how I found out that Americans I worked with brush their teeth after breakfast and not before.

I’m sure they are rolling their eyes and so are you. It was a big deal for me and I feel like sharing, but I cant expect everyone to be as excited. So I’ll continue with what I started (for my sake) in another blog (for your sake) before people start avoiding me and my blog (oh, not that Katrina stuff again!). Some of you could come by whenever you feel like and skim through the pictures and trust me I have got some astounding pictures. I was known as the tourist of the group. See, there I go again!

Visit Katrina logs whenever you have loads of time and nothing better to do and like getting depressed. I hope meanwhile Alpha continues her regular ranting here. I have to talk about this hairdresser who killed my hair last weekend!

Phew. What a relief. I brush my teeth after breakfast/coffee/whatever. It makes me feel good.

hi,

been a while since I visited your blog.

Welcome back and a great job helping victims in the aftermath of katrina.

btw, have you uploaded the photos?

thennavan said...

Alpha mami, paravaaillai mami; indha blog-leye sollungo; we are all ears :-)

(Just kidding! It is both wonderful and heart-wrenching at the same time, the former at your vivid capture of the details and the latter, the ground reality of the situation you were put in)

GratisGab said...

Oh Thank You Lord, that ANNOYING Red Nova has stopped hijacking Alpha's blog. I almost swore to never set foot in here again if you didn't stop that ad from popping up Ma'am!

I can hear you going "No loss Gratis"...but it wouldn't be the same without my particular brand of meanness now, would it?

Happy Diwali lady! All set for India trip?

anantha said...

Happy Diwali... Oops.. I did miss wishing you yesterday, did I ? Sorry...

alpha said...

anti: What a stupid conversation we had (it was all about you) and on top of that we had to be rudely interrupted by some telemarketer and you prefered that over me. Oh well! Happy diwali!

Kj: Happy Diwali to you too

Thennavan: poda! no bhayam I have now.

pingoo: You are my only solace.

Gabby: I know..it wudnt be the same. All going to be set! next week...Cant wait!

Umm...sorry. For some reason I thought I'd find a wife here. Silly me. No wonder I so suck at the hunt. Ah well, nice blog. Really. Sigh. Off I go.
