For Those Who Asked

...the GuyDad is at home now. He is recovering, though he's still on drugs. But there seems to be nothing major wrong, the operation went well, and we are thankful. The GuyMom is expected to come over this weekend so that she sees him first-hand and stops worrying, and he gets some company other than a daughter-in-law who spends most of her waking hours at the desk with the laptop and the rest with her nose in a book.

Now I'm going to reveal our fabulous plans for December which have not fallen through after all. We are going to Delhi! Next week! To attend the wedding of two dear friends. Another of those inter-community marriages that make me feel all warm and fuzzy. And while I am excited about the wedding, I'm also very excited about going to Delhi! again! (I lived in Delhi for my MBA and then worked in Gurgaon for nearly a year before moving to Pune in January 2006. And I haven't visited since, except for a few hours three years ago when we were changing flights there and we went over to Gurgaon to meet friends.)

Anyone in Delhi wants to meet me? (Or rather, not... If you had me pictured as a fabulously cool person, that image is bound to be shattered into a million pieces when you actually see me. And if you hadn't... leave a girl her illusions, will you?)

Well, readers, don't pay attention to her. She may not be cool (which I doubt) but she's definitely super hot (looking). Eye candy regardless of sexual orientation :P

Unmana said...

Pallavi: I hope we do, too!

ramblingsbybones: You know, I'm looking forward to it and dreading it at the same time. I've spent the last three winters in warm-ish Pune: can I stand the Delhi winter now? At least we're not going in the coldest days.

Gayatri: Sure! But the last time I went to Chennai was five years ago, so don't get your hopes up.

simplypallu: That has to be the best looks-related compliment I've ever received! I'm grinning like a maniac now. However, I'm fatter than when you saw me.

"However, I'm fatter than when you saw me."
Same here. Just add a few more pimples and tanning. Sigh!
(But I did grow my hair long and am darn happy with 'em.)

Unmana said...

simplypallu: My hair's quite short now. It feels great, but I look even fatter. I reason, I don't get to look at myself much: how I feel is more important.

How long are you in Delhi? Would love to meet if possible!

Unmana said...

Aishwarya: Yes! I'm there only for a few days, but that includes next weekend... Will you email me? unmanaswords at gmail.
