The one question every single person asks me on a regular basis is
"Aren't you frustrated sitting at home after working for so many years?"

And my answer is simply the same every time
"I love my own company"

That'll Be All :)))

I hate the fact that people don't dress up properly anymore.
In the good ol days men looked so handsome all suited and booted with their time pieces and crisp handkerchief.
So, you can imagine my delight when yesteday we were summoned to be at a place where a suit, tie, pants, socks and shoes were mandatory for the men.
I decided to play the part too with a crisp suit adorned with two rows of long white pearls.
The QueenFather looked the most handsome though.

Yes, my daddy is the coolest.

That'll Be All

The Yoga Session yesterday left me with muscles aching that I didn't even know exist.

That'll Be All
It's been too long since I posted.

I am now officially a lady of leisure and loving it.

Part of that meant that I refused to touch the computer for a few days hence the silence.

But the one thing that I am very very excited about is the fact that I am now also a Yoga Queen in Training.

That'll Be All

The Jester asked the Queen to honest scrap.
This is what she had to say...

i) The Queen cried while leaving the office yesterday after over five long years. The tears were brought on by a farewell song that was played as she made her final exit out of the office.

ii) As part of her farewell, she received a beautiful bouquet of pink roses with a beautiful message attached. This touched her heart. The Queen loves flowers.

iii) The Queen has insecurities that she needs to deal with. Believe it or not.

iv) The Queen is scared to sit in / drive a Maruti 800 or any such small car. This happened because of a bad car accident a few years ago.

v) The Queen loves sushi, fondue, escargot and other exotic food. The QueenFather taught her to eat it all as a child. He said it was important to acquire a taste for exotic food.

vi) The Queen will crack open a crab with her bare hands and wipe it clean. It's the only food she really enjoys eating with her hands.

vi) The Queen is obsessed with her hands and feet and will care for them for hours on end. She has also modelled her hands for advertisements.

vii) The Queen modelled her face for an advertising campaign once only to be told that she looked "too upmarket". The image was never used in the mass media and only in the brochures. This pissed the Queen off.

viii) The Queen belives in loyalty and has only worked for two organizations in her eleven year career. She claimed gratuity from both.

ix) The Queen loves blogging and would love to publish a book one day.

x) And for number ten, you ask the Queen a question and she will try and answer as honestly as she possibly can.

That'll Be All
Now when someone asks me 'What do you do?', I will reply "I do as I please :)"

That'll Be All.

Today I feel better.
Tomorrow is my last day at work.
I have been procrastinating about packing my stuff.
Don't want to sit at my desk without my stuff on it.
So I've decided it will be the last thing I will do.

Wonder how I will feel then.

This is getting ridiculous.
I woke up with a sinus and fever this morning.
Mr Universe, can you please stop.

I said please.

That'll Be All.

I woke up with a swollen left eye yesterday.
It made me completely miserable.
And just when I thought the weekend couldn't possibly get any worse,
I ended up with a splitting headache and a bad throat last night.
And just when I thought that the night couldn't get any worse,
I ended up shivering last night.
Let's just say a strong pill and a few hours later, here I am sitting at my desk at work.
Hey, I can't bunk, it's my last four days and today there is a farewell lunch being hosted in my honour.

That'll Be All.

There are certain days you just wake up happy and feeling loved.

Today is one of those days.

That'll Be All.
Friday night : Dinner with the King.

That'll Be All.

Thank you all for asking but I did not have the repeat of the nightmare last night.

I slept peacefully.

Peacefully to the extent that when I woke up and changed positions this morning I felt my blood rush from the left side of my body to the right. Does that happen to any of you?

Today, I start to feel like the Queen of Hearts.
With only seven days to go to my last day, I find myself accepting farewell luncheon requests.

It makes me feel so loved. Thank you Universe and friends for bestowing this love onto me.

It's such a feeling of mixed emotions though.
It's happiness
It's pain
It's love
It's sadness

Just like all the colours of the rainbow.

I'm taking the time to feel every emotion.
I know a Queen shouldn't but I have to; I want to feel the emotions.

That'll Be All.
I hate to say this but I have been having nightmares the last few nights.
I woke up in a cold sweat two nights ago at 5 am and could not go back to sleep till almost half past seven.
I could not remember what the nightmare was about though.

Cut to last night.

I went to bed rather early read midnight.
And the nightmare started again...

This time it was alot more clear.

I found myself in an army camp of sorts.
And I have no idea what I was doing there.
But I saw alot of my friends there and we seemed to be divided into two camps.
I somehow got lost from my camp and was wandering around alone.

Then suddenly a war broke out in the camp and we were infiltrated by the enemy.
And there I was alone in the middle of the war with gunfire and grenades trying to protect myself.

I somehow managed to make my way to a barrack of sorts.


The barracks were these huge rectangular brick structures but with enormous french windows with the sunlight pouring in.

As I entered the barrack I was surprised to see that the curtains were all open but my team were all lying flat on their backs on the floor to protect themselves from being seen through the windows which were barely one foot off the ground.

I was quickly asked to lie flat on the ground but the only space available was at the far end of the room for which I needed to run across the open window area.

I jumped across the bodies and quickly lay down right next to the window and then the inevitable happened.

The enemy stood right outside my window with the barrell of his gun pointing straight at my head.

I froze.

Almost instantly we were in a crossfire. The other camp members were dressed in militarywear and there was firing all around.

And I woke up once more, in a cold sweat.

That'll Be All.

.::: HEAR YE HEAR YE ::.

The Queen welcomes MERLIN - the great wizard, prophet and adviser to several kings, including King Arthur to her bench.

So far, he considered himself just a Sorcerer but the Queen deems him fit to be Merlin in her court.

Welcome Merlin to the Queen's Bench.

I wonder how he feels about being in a Queen (read woman's) court...

That'll Be All *poof*

This post is brought to you by the number 10.

10 more days and I will be a free bird.

As you know a collection of ten years is called a decade.

I have spent the last decade working over two organizations.

Both have been absolutely wonderful to me and my career.

I claimed my Long Service Award and Gratuity from both companies.

But at the culmination of the decade, I decided it is time for some introspection into my own personal life.

It therefore amazed me to read that in Chinese astrology the 10 Heavenly Stems refer to a cyclic number system that is used also for time reckoning.

Wish me luck.

That'll Be All.
This post is brought to you by the number 11

There are 11 days left for me to come to work, after which I shall be a free bird.

A funny story about the number 11 from my childhood.

When I was learning my numbers as a child, this is what I said once...

one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, one-ty one...

That'll be all
