The blurb ob by blob...

My photo
Mother, writer and daydreamer. Also chocoholic and chick-flick lover. But mainly mommy. To two boys, at that! When not escorting my Elder One (EO) to karate class, I'm trying to get in as many cuddles as possible from my Younger One (YO). And when not doing either, I'm hard-at-work trying to maintain a steady relationship with my laptop. And as for the Man I Married (MIM), well, let’s just put it this way – even though we share a bedroom, our most meaningful conversations are held over the cell-phone!

If We Are Who We Watch...

The EO is Ben10. Ben10 in a Bengali boy body. Really and truly. He lagaos the lingo and dons the designs. All that's missing is the REAL omnitrix. But for now, he's got two expensive, flashy, replicas made in China until he acquires the real thing.

The YO has become obsessed with Noddy. So much so that he has started looking like him...huge, big eyes, an impish grin and a wobbly head.

The MIM, if you look hard enough, bears a slight resemblance to Arnab Goswami. My man's just got a more squashed up samosa for a nose, is a couple of shades more wheatish in complexion and smiles a lot more. Glasses and passionate, argumentative logic firmly in place, though!

So why the hell don't I look like Kate Walsh or Marcia Cross!! No?!? Ok, Suchitra Sen or Sonam Kapoor? Awww come on! At least Kajol!!
***********************************************************
And speaking of Ben10...
There's something that's just so awfully thrilling and touching and enchanting about the fact that sometimes, just the very rarest of sometimes, your five-and-a-half year old chooses Mickey Mouse over his favourite, boy/10 alien avtaar superhero.
Believe me, it's quite a "YES!!!!!" moment.

@ Indyeah: Oh, I look like a bag of Lay's Sour Cream 'n' Onions on my bad days, and on my good days I look like a McChicken burger! ;)

@ WIAN: The PowerPuff girls? How sweet! Have to tell you though, am thoroughly charmed by all the Barbie movies even though I was never a fan of the dool.

@ Piper: I discovered Noddy rather late in life, but am so glad that I did!

@ Namesake: Like I said before my dear, trick photography! Trick photography! ;)

B - I come bearing good news - Sandhya and I went to watch He's just not that into you and we both thought that the cute female lead (the optimistic one) reminded us of you. I thought it was the smile, but then again I am a dentist...I always think it's in the smile:-)
