Am not a much of a "Happy Birthday" person. Hmmmm..... yeah... I always find it embarrassing to celebrate birthdays. Its not a recent phenomena but right since school / college. I am embarrassed especially when I have to blow the candles, cut the cake, smile politely and take in all the hullabaloo over turning a year older. Ah, well, this aspect of my life has not changed over the years (about which you can read HERE)
I had my birthday just last friday. Munish prepared a special midnight spread along with the cake et al. Had loads of wishes over phone, facebook, twitter from family, friends, acquaintances, colleagues, fellow bloggers - Phew!!! I felt special and good. Loved all the gifts which kept pouring in. Birthday gift from hubby is yet to be received (booked already), but I received little tids bits from special friends too. Like the latest header of my blog...thanks to my dearest friend Namit Bhatia...and Oh, he even wrote a poem for me (in return for THE ONE I wrote for him ;-) it was a deal) hehehe.... c'mon, don't you all giggle or laugh...this is his first attempt, and I must say, a pretty good one. Here it goes..........
The Maggitoes Rhapsody
I know a fine girl named Maggitoes,
Who has a penchant for writing prose.
She loves to travel far and wide,
A valiant voyager bona fide.
Photography is her leisure pursuit,
Be it nature or a random shoot.
A self proclaimed Bollywood movie buff,
One lousy flick and she goes, “I’ve had enough”.
Always at odds with the firewall at work,
Once granted access, tweet frenzy ensues as she goes berserk.
Recently bitten by the cooking bug,
Her hubby knows best and he dare not say “Ugh!” :P
Chirpy, bubbly and immensely adorable,
“Oh look! That’s the poem for you, now am I out of trouble?”
