Monday Horrorscope

What is: Bad, bad, bad day at work. Deadlines that leave me very-near-dead. Mean, rude emails. A major gaffe on Friday that comes back to haunt me. Reminder to self: Must never let weekend euphoria get near me again.

What it looks like: I'm the sassy chick who struts fast in corridors, I'm the babe who has everything under control. They can say when I'm in a spot of trouble, but they'll never know how much. Now I'll go home and fix the kid's dinner, chat with the in-laws and nod dutifully. I'm infallible, un-get-able, never fatiguing.

What is needed: I want to curl up and sob, tell someone what miserable people exist in this world. Eat greasy chinese food and drink a whole-glass of Thums Up. Watch lots of tv. Not have to worry about school night. I don't want to read Poldy learns about Place for the 78th time. I want to be rescued, shining knight in armour/sari and all that, and cocooned till I'm healed again.

Oh dear, here is a tissue, and my shoulder, in reverse order. Write in! And feel free to crib and be nasty and drippy and whatever else you want to be right now.

T - It's getting better: am on a holiday today because of Holi so have lots of plans to introduce Nino to the nicer side of the festivities!

Ra - I know: sometimes all that life requires is some really really satisfying transfat!

Suki - awww, thank you!

Nitya - totally. I hope so too!

Hay Nino's mum, I hope things are better now. Juggling work, home, kid, family and oneself is not an easy thing at all. By what i can gather from your posts, on most days, you are great!

Best wishes,
