New Year tagging along

How have you been? That new one, 2012, treating you well? πŸ™‚

Though we planned it to be a quite and happy beginning, the new year ushered us in with a lot of action – that which included our car break in, a cold night drive, last minute changes and a party which rocked the night round – high on music, laughter, dance and spirits ( both kinds ) !

All that is a different story to tell. I am here, however, for a different reason. First, to wish each one of you a new year that feels fabulous in every Β possible way πŸ™‚

Second, to do this tag that I have been meaning to do since the time I saw it here.That’s one wicked post to begin writing in the new year, I know. Who said I was being nice anyway? πŸ˜€

Once I start talking of the husband and his traits, it shall be difficult to stop. So, am conveniently giving up the 7 number restriction and proceeding.

  • The husband has one dimple on each cheek. That makes it two (duh!)..and I love them muchly. So much so that I sincerely prayed Paapu gets them too when I was expecting her. That didn’t happen, however, and the husband remains the sole a-dimple-on-each-cheek person in the family.Needless to say he is mighty proud of those two ( dimples, I mean).
  • Before you go all awww at the above point, let me make up for it by saying that his hair style ( style? Hehehe) is sad.The guy lived in denial until one day, when the 6 year old of a dear friend pointed his head and giggled “Your hair is funny. Looks like a nest”. Enough said.
  • Are you looking for the ultimate guide to annoy people? Contact The husband.Some tips in the beginners chapter will have things like placing open palm on the victims face without reason for unlimited duration. Also, changing your computer settings to hang the icons upside down, when victim leaves the machine unattended.Or, you may learn how you can stealthily update victims profile on network sites to say “I am a raging alcoholic and of course a chain smoker too. I live with my 16 dogs and 10 cats”
  • I find it really hard to say this..I flinch and my nose crinkles, but here goes – The husband is the more responsible one among us two.Hmph. He remembers to the bills, update documents, keep in touch with relatives and friends, check on status about milk in the fridge, wear the condom whatever the heat of the moment, get the car serviced on time. What? All true those.
  • The most wacky dialogues come out of him at the most unexpected times. It mostly makes you laugh out loud accompanied by an ‘Ayyo!’ face-palm. Sample these :


Me:”Did you finish that book – Top 10 places to see before you die?”

Him:”Hmm. I am coming up with my own list”

Me: “What list?”

Him: “Top 10 places to die before you see” πŸ˜€


Me: So, what do you think?

Him: That I am your Prince and you are my Prince-Ass πŸ˜€


  • Have a free weekend with no plans? Want to just sit down and chill on the sofa, spend a lazy day watching a movie or two? Forget it, if you are married to this man, The husband. He is like a fish out of water if there is no plan ahead of the day.Or, to be precise, if there is no outdoor plan for the day. He believes it is blasphemous to spend free time indoors. Rain, sunshine or snow, he is all set all the time shouting , “come on, lets go!”. What weed he smokes to be such an enthu cutlet all the time, I don’t know.
  • Sports of any kind doesn’t interest this guy. No, really! I found it hard at first..can such a GUY exist? πŸ˜€ Yes, he can. And, he does not care who is playing what and how, for any sport. Can be a good sportsman though, within a group of friends playing cricket or frisbee.
  • It is dead hard to beat this guy in a debate. Before you raise an eyebrow, ask me how is that? The husband has this innate ability to confuse people. You think, analyse and argue in a straight line, while this man will think, hop, skip, jump, climb another plane and throw a pebble at you from there.Some people will work hard to fit that pebble into their straight line of thought while others like me just go ‘Wha..?” and let it go πŸ˜›
  • The husband is a classic case of “You can take a tamilian out of Tamilnadu, but can never take Tamilnadu out of a tamilian”. Can have sambhar rice and chips any time of the day, best likes to dance to dabba kuthu songs, likes wife better in sari and bindi than any sexy western wear, quotes tamil movie jokes at slightest given get the idea? But surprisingly, NOT a Rajnikant fan..nor a Kolaveri fan either. Huh, wonders of nature! πŸ˜€

I just realized I am bubbling with more material here, but that might cost marriage?

So, will stop.

Bye for now.

    Godawesome this is!! πŸ˜€

    Paapu will have a lot of fun growing up with you two πŸ˜‰

  2. Happy New Year to you all too πŸ™‚

    Car break in aa? How? When? Scary!

    Sigh! I hate to admit this too – G is very responsible with things. Not with people! While he is good with paying bills on time, making a note of things to be handled and all that, he doesn’t bother much about remembering people’s birthdays/annivs or any such events. I have to remind him to make calls to people and all that. But because I’m not so great at what he does, I’ll keep this arrangement πŸ™‚

    Little child telling about his hairstyle made me laugh ;-))) Poor him :)))

    “Prince Ass” is super funny!! :-)))

    • The car break in was few hours before the new years eve. Shocked to find the window shattered and a bag inside missing. But, thankfully there was nothing important/expensive in that bag. Even the GPS lying nearby was left untouched. The thief had some bad luck πŸ˜‰

      Keep your arrangement of things SnS. Sounds great to me πŸ˜€

    πŸ™‚ Happy new year to you too and hubby and what lovely points on him..
    well i guess you both are lucky to have each other ..

    and the song in the end jingle bells awesome πŸ™‚

    God bless

  4. this is what these mens get for marrying bloggers *grins*

    i was laughing at the upside-down icon and im a chain smoker(and even imagined you chain smoking with two full ash-trays near by :P)

    happy new year to you three! keep having those lovely trips!

    • oops. car break in? i read it as car break down first – hope it’s okay now..

      • This is what they get, correct πŸ˜€ But, guess what? The guy did not even bother to come and read this list, even after I asked me to.

        Oh, well.

        2 full ash trays! Only you can go awa with imaginations like those Abi. Hahaha!

        Car was broken in, yes. No break downs though, thankfully πŸ™‚

        No harm except for window shattering and a stolen bag. The tirudan had real bad luck since the bag had no valuables of any kind in it πŸ˜›

  5. Ohhh wow he looks very organized, and he doesn’t like sports..that’s good but rare for husband species ;-)LOL at Prince-Ass πŸ˜€

    • Yes, very rare for husband species not to like them sports! But, there are a lot of other things which make up for that plus point anyways πŸ˜›

      Organized – with documents, yes. But any stone-heart will puke at the sight of his wardrobe organization.

      I’m exaggerating, but still. πŸ˜‰

  6. sreelu says:

  7. R's Mom says:

    hahahhaa! What a super husband…what no kolaveri?? surprising because every Tamilian husband seems to be crazy about it in this side of the world πŸ™‚

    Happy New Year and keep them coming okie?

  8. I want a tip or two on how to pull a prank on AB πŸ˜€
    And a tip or two on how to win a case by confusing others
    And to remember deadlines, chores, and calling people.

    Damn I need a crash course πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  9. Deboshree says:

    What a lovely post, To say nothing of the amazing jingle at the end! When will I get to sing it for R? 😦

  10. i also have one of those with 1 “gadha” on each cheek and is so mighty proud of them…!!! i just call them the moon’s craters!

    Point 5 – on being the responsible one – Sigh i have one of those two but seriously how did u find a non sports one…are there any manuals i can use to get/change the husband into one of those

    • Gadha =!

      LOL. Okay, I get it. Was confused on the first read , not anymore πŸ˜€

      There are several among my friends wanting that manual too Nuttie. Wish I had one to share.

  11. RS says:

    Haaahahahahahah! Bad time to read this post – sitting in a training sesion and biting my cheek hard to control the ROFLing!

    Suuper Post AHK – and Happy New Year!

  12. Dee says:

    This was super hilarious!! loved that “Prince Ass” phrase πŸ˜€ and I so get the way he confuses people in an argument as I have the same species at home :)))

  13. DewdropDream says:

    β€œTop 10 places to die before you see”

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! πŸ˜€ What’s on that list then?

    • Trust you to laugh at that one DDD. I couldn’t stop laughing for long after I heard him say that.

      The meaning of the line is so wacky, no? LOL

      God knows what’s on that list, am sure he doesn’t know either πŸ˜‰

  14. LOL at the last line.
    Loved this. You both sound so cute. πŸ˜€

  15. Pesto Sauce says:

    Wow…you really know your guy inside out. What emerges is the lovely companionship yous share with him…..continue having a good time

  16. rani says:

    aren’t we supposed to be writing BAD/weird things about these men? I thought yours were mostly nice/funny things, all praise for the men!

    I love the prince-ass part! πŸ™‚

  17. la Vida Loca says:

    happy new year to u too!!

  18. Hello…just hopped over some time ago and read this and some previous posts…Paapu is sooo adorable..loved your holiday posts with her narration…

    Oh and on this post , I totally relate to the being married to the more responsible one .Such a relief someone pays the rent, bills, takes out the trash and gets the car serviced…

  19. Pepper says:

    I wanted to be the first one to comment here and see how long it has taken me 😦

    H doesn’t like watching sports? Such a kind exists? Where, oh where did you find him? Okay, wait, I know. I can’t be more envious of you AHK. Sports channels are the bane of my life.

    And really? What do you guys do every weekend? I dislike being outdoor in the cold, but if you have some very novel and interesting ideas, please do share them.

    I always maintained, it is close to impossible to beat Mint in a debate. Now I can’t wait to set Mint and H up for one. Now that would be fun πŸ˜€

    • Sports channels are the bane of your life…mine is the laptop, and the smart phone and the touchpad and… you get the idea?

      Hiking, walking , biking – all common things Pepper. But, cold or warm doesn’t matter , as I said. He just wants to be out all the time! 😦

      Mint Vs H would be fun to watch, for sure! I get the feeling,either one of them will be stumped and both will end up laughing πŸ˜›

    Ha ha, sounds like a really nice guy, your Prince πŸ™‚ Btw, a photo would be nice too πŸ˜‰
