11 things before 11/11/11

by Khushboo on November 10, 2011

1) Finding a waffle-maker at home last week  has been life-changing breakfast-changing!  Some people celebrate “Waffle Wednesday”.  I seem to have extended the celebration into “Waffle Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday”.

2) Sangria has been on my mind all week since I last had some over the weekend.  For those living in Mumbai, order the berry sangria at Amadeus…do it!

3) I saw the movie Tower Heist on Sunday and find Ben Stiller slightly attractive…am I the only one?

4) Thanks to the angle I was sitting in, I spilled green tea on myself which ensued a burn mark.  As a result, I have been walking around for the past 2 weeks looking like I have a chocolate stain on my chest.

5)  I love my new work bag too much to care about whether or not it matches/clashes with my outfit.

6) I spent an ENTIRE 20 minutes stretching at the gym yesterday…completely unheard of for me.

7) I have to wear a saree this weekend which is a huge challenge for me.  As glamorous as they may be, having the pleats unintentionally undo themselves is not glamorous.

Don't be fooled

8 ) Strawberries are back in season in Mumbai.  When I bought I my first box, I may have eaten the entire lot in one day.  The boxes aren’t small.

9) Despite my obsession with the perfume Narciso Rodriguez for Her, I’ve made room on my dressing table for a new one: Elie Saab

10) I have been listening to the same 5 songs on repeat:


11) I think the conspiracy theory that the world is ending is 2012 is a load of crap.  Why are people entertaining this idea??

Tell me one thing…11 things…anything..!

Yumm. I want waffles! I definitely need to invest in a waffle maker. :) Wish strawberries were still in season here. :(

I hope the 2012 conspiracy is a load of crap. LOL :)

Mmm, I want a waffle! I have to stick to pancakes for tasty breakfast treats, since I don’t have a waffle maker. Mmm, strawberry season is so far away here, I’m jealous!

I think strawberry waffles would be a great idea :)

And yes, I too believe that the whole 2012 theory is stupid. I can’t believe people fall for it.

I wore a sari once. And then I never touched it again! Talk about high maintenance. I just can’t handle it!

I love to see others wear saree, I cannot cannot handle it. Its graceful and all but not for me. Wearing it for 8 hours on my wedding day was quite the task.

I definitely think it’s a load of crap and should not be entertained at all! However, a positive way to handle the situation is to be grateful each day and think about what we would want to do if the world really were going to end someday in the near future.

I love Sangria! I’m actually going to have some tonight!

Waffles are the best!! My waffle iron is so annoying to clean, so I rarely make them. When I do, I make HUGE batches so that I have ‘em for a while… or a week, because I can’t get enough of ‘em!

What do you have to wear the saree for? Also, love the workout bag! I’m a huge yellow fan :-)

I’m coming to Mumbai just so I can eat more strawberries. They suck here in Texas right now. So depressing because I love them. Waffle makers are life changing. That is probably what I miss most about living in dorms. The awesome waffle maker. Although my butt probably doesn’t miss the waffle maker hahaha.

I need a waffle iron. Pronto! That waffle looks delicious, dear :)

I heart Ben Stiller :D

Get the pleats on your saree, permanently stitched.

That bag is gorgeous, who cares whether it matches your outfit or not.

Love the yellow bag! And I agree about 2012, it’s like the Y2K thing all over again – silly.
