Elegantly Wasted…

Oh, Come on now! In all fairness how long does it really take to be back in your mind’s creative gear and write a plain simple blog post? Why is it that when your complete no-show makes people curious and make them inquire, you are brain dead and can’t even think of a decent answer? Why-why-why? Have I lost it? “IT” being my creative streak (Yes, I had it at one point of time. Thank you.). Or is it some kind of a looong-dark-glum hibernation period that my grey cell have gone and settled into…? Some freaking brain disease? Holy shit, it is fatal? Tell me, please!!

Okay, I’m done with the drama, ladies and gentlemen. If I irritated you, please forgive me – I have this tendency to get a lil’ melodramatic at times. But trust me, and this part is true, my angelic creativity, my ethereal writing skills have fled and refuse to return. The confusing patterns of life have stabbed me, and though I survived – I’m starting to have a history of surviving the most cruel stuff life does to me, by the way! – my art ran away. Sigh. It feels sad and helpless, like those regrettable times when sleazy men approach you in clubs and are misguided enough to think that they are every-girl’s-knight-in-shining-Armani and you can sense all your mannerisms and smiles and girlie-demeanour slipping away…away…away…. leaving behind the ferocious and rude you – not that I’m against it anyway, such men should be treated like this and worse, if possible – and with a few more such incidents you know that you’ll never be the same well mannered and dainty girlie girl again. Okay, maybe it happens only with me, not every girl, but what the hell! Atleast you got my point that I am elegantly wasted. Right.

So all I’m trying to say here is that inspite of many good and bad things happening – more bad less good – I haven’t been able to write anything and I think this qualifies for being a situation of concern. Not that I ever was very regular with the blog thing, I cannot do the “Dear-Diary” sloppy thing with my blog ever. But this time, something has happened….I tried thinking of something that is funny and interesting but I was held back by the twin evils of inertia and blank-mindedness. Phew. I can see the happy and chirpy ‘Updated!’ word on my blogroll against many blogs, and how it makes me feel shallow. I was reading a few blog posts. One of them had such a happening life to write about and in such a wonderful language you’ll never want to stop reading. Another girl has such a deep take on life, love and the universe that I felt so cheap and debated if I live on the same planet at all. Good guys. I hate them.

I had/have a full social life too! I had a great tour to Agra and saw the Taj Mahal for the 1st freaking time in my life, but did I blog about it? No. I met the cricket stars Adam Gilchrist, Robin and Yuvraj Singh at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week and fell in love with Gilchrist (remember my date-a-firang thingy?) but did I share it here? No again. And did I ever mention the cute puppy who is grabbing all my attention at home (actually, outside my house, in an empty land under a drain cover) these days? Big NO. See? ??

Anyway, because of loss of words/art/enthu/energy/skills/please help yourself to think of any derogatory adjective, I’ll try and make up with a few pictures. One is Taj Mahal and one is Gilly posing only for me. Honest. One is my stray puppy also, awwww I love him! Lemmi know what do you think of my photographic talent and pray for me so that I can write something meaningful (?) and witty and funny.

Until then, Ciao!
