This Christmas eve/Christmas was quite different from last year. The former was spent at my best friend's brother's reception. Indian clothes (sarees to be exact), vegetarian food and no alcohol. However, wait for it, it was fun. Also, I can safely conclude that I can dance to Bollywood music (somewhat) sober. And 'Subha Hone Na De'! I cannot stop humming it. Christmas last year was Fipi with Bollywood music and a new face I was kind of warming up to. This year, that face (not new anymore) and I went on a cute dinner date and ate till we couldn't breathe. Oh, and these people singing carols saw me get excited and clap like a seal and came and sang at our table. That was really funny. Thennn we went 10D and I ogled at the pretty wreaths, bells, glittery hangings etc.
Other than the absence of a larger than life Christmas tree, it was all perfect.

Trust my horoscope to be this apt.

Where's your holiday spirit, Gemini?  Aren't you looking forward to a joyful December and a Happy New Year? If you're feeling disillusioned because you aren't where you thought  you'd be this holiday season, you're certainly not alone. But instead of finding lots of reasons for feeling down, try to find a way to pull yourself out of the doldrums and enjoy this magical time of the year. If you concentrate on finding happiness, you will certainly find it. There is still time to perk up your attitude and get everything you want for Christmas.

I don't know what my problem is.
I can't figure out if it's to do with the fact that I'm tired all the time, or if its to do with how I am being labeled 'Ethiopian malnourished child' (yes, really) and actually feeling it to quite an alarming extent, or because I have been watching an overdose of Breaking Bad and can't see even with my glasses/lenses (hence, the world seems fuzzy), or because the trip I had to literally beg (for months) to get permission for might actually not be happening. Whatever is it though, it's turning me into a Grinch of sorts. One that is feeling all anti-holiday-ey. And devious. Not to mention how I'd sail through to first position, rather effortlessly, and get the gold medal+other goodies for being Miss Snappy.
All in all, December is not looking promising. And that's just such a waste of an exciting month.

December is here.
Although, it doesn't feel like it yet. Needless to say, it's my favorite month. For one there is Christmas- Carols, Ginger bread cookies, Christmas trees with shiny and frosted thingamajigs, the snow (for those who are lucky enough), oh and the wine, how could I forget? Then there is New Years Eve (which is a movie too, I hear) and the fact that another year is coming to an end. Usually, I look forward to a new year, however this time it just means '2012' is a day closer. To say it more simply, I do not wish to die in some huge 'end of the world' massacre. Anyway, before I kill the festive spirit, I will go on. In addition to all this, there is a Wedding (December weddings are the best. I'm going to have one myself). And it's in Bombay. And I'm going to dance at another Sangeet! Then there is the 23rd. The night that came and made my whole year. Annnd, the cherry on the cake, Goaaaa.
What with all of the above, beats me how it doesn't feel December-ish yet.
