The weather's..... sweet

Good morning. It's a Wednesday morning, and the weather outside here in central Bombay is... cloudy. The word is... reticent... fairweather friend?... wishy-washy. And yes, again, welcome, to my life.

What's the world up to this fine morning? (Or evening, depending on which hemisphere you reside in... forgive me, I'm a rambler by trade, heart and soul.) The girl on my right is reading a copy of yellowed Economic Times. The guy I went picture-selling yesterday was laughing a second ago, and he's off for breakfast now. New caterers in the house. Poha and coffee. Hmmm... I prefer the coffee.

Terrible to think that I'm definitely going to get diabetic. These days, the only coffee I drink is mochaccino, with two lumps of sugar. Plus, I have two lumps of sugar, preceding my mochaccino. I'm like a horse - me and my lumps of sugar.

Sweet bong. Horrible thought: while going through the online matrimonials for bro darling earlier this year, I stumbled across a profile labelled not-very-enigmatically sweetbong23. I'm sorry, I can't link or anything. But I still smirk about it. ;-)

Complaint of the week: Absolutely no one has been over to gabbles to read the new story. Prepostrous! The only person who's left a comment there, saw the story first on caferati.


Tahale tor profiler ki naam hobe re? Hey, as a good Bong, you will obviously love sweet stuff, I mean I do. I'll email you sometime when I get off work slightly early. And by the way 'Big Mango' because The Economist referred to the city as such. After all the Aam is the quintessential desi phal.

Yeah, maybe you should use honey instead... :P

Matrimonials... wife surfing? Do you have arranged marriages? Pardon my ignorance, or simple curiosity, but my culture is different.

K, I saw Big Mango on your blog, I thought it was an interesting way of saying it.

i agree with the heaven part. one way or another you will end up with the person you're meant to.

oh and yes, honey is yummy. i have heard of the tradition, and agree that it can have its advantages. i just wanted to know if today it was still predominant. the system in the west hasn't proven to be better since people wed whoever for more superficial reasons and divorce all the time. thanks for your answer. :)
