My list for Santa...

Christmas is just around the corner... and so are cakes, pastries, Christmas trees and Santa Claus :)

I did my schooling in an English Convent. Christmas was as much a part of my annual festival calendar as Diwali, Pongal or Ganesh Chaturthi.

Christmas at school meant singing Christmas carols, putting up plays on the life of Jesus (played the role of a shepherd in the manger where Christ was born - this is what happens when you're in an all-girls school :P), wearing coloured clothes to school on the last day before the Christmas holidays and secretly working out a Santa wish list :)

Somehow Santa Claus seems just as real as he is imaginary. Somehow I wish to believe he's packing his bags somewhere in the North Pole with stuff for me and all of you who believe in him.

Here's a sneak peek at my Santa wish list this year... in no particular order :)

  • Return Tickets to Bombay... i'm missing my frens there like crazy!!!
  • A yummy chocolate cake (like the one's Enid Blyton spoke of in her books) with zero calories... :P
  • A super-natural power to go kill those who master-minded the Bombay terror attack and other acts of terror.
  • A laptop of my choice... Dell's Studio 17 in Tangerine Orange is my choice for the moment :)
  • More of Abhishek Bachchan on the silver screen... and less of Katrina Kaif :P
  • Big time hits on my blog space... the new look better work ;)
  • The power to dream or wish for things that are possible... it hurts when your dreams remain incomplete... :(
  • On second thoughts Santa, please make that last one... the power to believe that incomplete dreams are only dreams that take longer to realize!
  • Additions to my Lucknowi Chikan suit collection... i can already sense one of Santa's elves coming along with them:)
  • A nice boss at the new job... i wonder if bosses feel just as weird when they're going to have a new subordinate!!!

Ten items on the list!!! I've been moderately good through the year :P... so Mr. Santa please start packing up my stuff right away :)

Merry Christmas all of you!!!

Hey there..

Your new blogger look is definitely light years better than the previous one, which I felt was really claustrophobic ( That too in a murderous pink ). I'm surprised you chose such a staid and professional theme given your penchant for "Pink" and the newly added " Tangerine Orange". Now, your blog looks more spaced out and light on the eye.

and..what do you know.. I just fulfilled one of your x'mas wishes...I gave you a Big time blog hit :-D...

hey sri...

thanx for the comment n the compliment too...

ok now just for the records... that pink was not murderous... just that boys don't hav an eye for colors of all types :P... so i really won't blame you :)

also had another blog template after the pink one... that was a shade of blue... n in ur words that too was staid n professional :)

glad u liked this one... spent quite some time on it...

hav u checked out the tangerine orange shade of the dell studio 17... its awesome...

and for the Big time hit... thanx a ton bro :) btw it was just a hit... u'll hav to keep coming along often to make it a Big time one :)

c ya...

Hi Priya

Felt good reading your blog. It was a welcome break from all the murder and mayhem usually associated with sales. Santa is a big debate I guess but I beleive he exisits if not in body then definitely in spirit.

@bizwiz... thanx for dropping by n the comment too :)

merry x'mas!

I have asked for more of aamir and akshay and less of abhishek, though i do not mind more of katrina

priya December 25, 2008 at 10:15 AM  

@bratboy - i dont mind more of aamir too... akshay also ok for the laffs... but for the eyes abhishek is a must... :)

katrina is just a plastic doll with a painful accent :P

perspectives differ :)

Bakri December 25, 2008 at 11:09 AM  

And YESS!! I agree the part about Abhishek Bacchan!! :D Heehee!!
He's sooo cute!! I wish i'd see less of any of the actresses on TV! Most of them are pretentious and plastic!

priya December 25, 2008 at 11:15 AM
