eid, fever and movies

in frenzy of the past week with back to back shoot happening and work happening on a similar roller coaster pace, i havent had any rest time or just chill time. even with my nieces i havent spend the kind of time i wanted, and then suddenly it was almost eid. I am not particularly fond of this eid, too much ghost stuff happening and no eidi which sucks big time. [“and thats not even fair”, this line is my latest anthem i have learned from my niece shanz]

i was looking forward to the bbq at S place the night before eid, although it would have been a difficilut task with everyone over and assi flying in too but i thought i would manage somehow. ummm err no such luck because “my fell ill” [another thing i have learned from my little niece alvi, she does not have “i” in her dictionary]

all through eid i have been coughing and getting hot and cold spasm, and to top that my amma has finally decided she cant handle the gosht business anymore and no more qurbani from next year [ after a meltdown midday] money will be given instead. a decision my bro in law is very happy with becuase he doesnt belive in qurbani and as is other then my abba noone is fond of eating qurbani ka ghost [so all gosht will be given away] trust me the CHICKEN ki biryani last night was a breath of fresh air, even though i couldnt even take a bite thanks to my crazy fever.

ok im losing the track here as usual.

so yeh where was i, the fever!!! the hot and cold spasm, chill in spine, not wearing new clothes because i couldnt shower, being a bhangi on eid. All this pretty much culminates my eid.

movies happened:D thankgod for F who supplied me with enough to last me 10 eids!!

Although im in love with cooking and my dream is to have my cooking show in BBC food, im not doing anything about it..and watchingJULIE AND JULIA

last night got me all geared up. Meryl Streep is awesome in this movie as Julia Child, but i can relate more to Julie who is a present day passionate girl who wants to do something big and see it till the end. I loved her passion, her tantrums and her way of dealing with things. Its a must watch movie.

so yeh eid has been about all this fever ,movies and finally some time spend with the girls…one more day of holiday to go.

i am also very anxious about the alumni show, i tried something new and even though i dont care how everyone will perceive it, im still hoping they like;) i was almost getting myself out of the show but then opted against it. I hope i will remain a part every year and do something new no matter how crazy


sans a fine balance

last few weeks have been a cross between extreme excitement and extreme frustration. and it is such a close call that nothing has seeped in and settled in my head..everything is happening one on top of the other. I finally got my macbookpro and this is the first time im getting a chance to actually sit with it and blog.

the rush of this buy should have made me go nuts with excitement but parallel to this i have had work happening like crazy. bundled with extreme frustaing and exciting moments life takes a new turn everyday. i loose inspiration and then i regain it, i get excited and then im blahed, its an ongoing battle.

nash and neices are in town living with us and everyday i think today i will go home early, but then something or the other makes it not possible. im craving to spend some quality un interrupted time but nahhhh nothing doing. ALL THIS IS TAKING THE FRUSTRATION LEVEL HIGH

my alumni piece is still in the making, and halfway through i just wanted to let go and not do it. but now its happening [or at least i think it is]

so yeh…i dont know how to react these days, its almost like everything is coming over [the good the bad and the ugly]

i hope i find balance
