Looks like Arya did sing that song ;)

When I wrote this post, If Arya Stark had to sing… β€” Books, Music, Photography, & Movies I hadn’t watched the finale of Game of Thrones Season 7. Now after watching the actual video for the song (the one I posted was the lyric version) and the GoT episode where Arya Stark finally gets her revenge on the person I assume many of us had on our list, it feels so fitting. I wish she (Maisie Williams as Arya Stark) would do a parody of this song. That would be so cool…Then I searched to check if someone actually did it…and voila! It was released on 30th Aug. It was so cool.

Someone cared!

London is one of those cities where you can wear anything and no one will even spare you a glance unless they are people watching. It is very liberating in that sense at least for me.

I do not own T-Shirts with words in them except for a few of them which I got just on a whim or when I felt a little cheeky. I don’t wear them often that is why they look new even after a couple of years πŸ˜‰

The last thing I expected while walking down deep in conversation with Mr M past a bus shelter was for someone to take my arm and stop me. I was thrown in for a loop for a second and when I turned around I saw this lady sitting in the bus shelter looking at me and smiling. She winked at me and said ‘I love yourΒ T-Shirt’. I was like ‘what!?’ and then realized what T-Shirt I had worn and gave a laugh and thanked and threw a wink her way. Mr M rolled his eyes at this weird interaction. It took a while for us to recollect the discussion we were having before the incident.

Here is what my T-Shirt looks like, in case someone else cares πŸ˜‰



Unfurl me!!!

While I was reading Maggie’s post on the word prompt for the day ‘Unfurl‘, I found this fellow looking at me. When I look at him I always think that he calls me for help every day when that single jasmine vine gets tangled around his neck. Until now, I didn’t realize what that cry was. Now I think it must be ‘Unfurl Me!!!’. I remove it every single day but somehow that single branch finds its way back to his neck. I will help him shortly, but do you think his cry for help might be using the word ‘unfurl’?

WPC: Unusual

I love it when I find some unusual text or quote like this one from Eton. I definitely wouldn’t mind having this on my front door πŸ˜‰ What do you think?



Ya a’right

Ever since I have moved here, I keep hearing this term “Ya A’right??”. It is the first thing that comes out of everyone’s mouth when they see me. Initially, I thought that I looked sick or tired and hence the question. But they weren’t bothered to wait for my answer anyway. So why question me something like that and not wait for what I want to say if I had anything to say at all…I wondered.

In my school, there is this class teacher who helped me out when I joined and I consider her a friend (I say this because I am not sure if she considers me as one yet, but that’s a’right to me πŸ˜‰ ) She is one of the very few with whom I can be myself Β (i.e. not necessarily be polite for every small thing that they do or say πŸ˜€ ) She says that word with a very North England accent and that kind of fascinates me. Yesterday, when she said that as a greeting, I asked her if that question was rhetoric or if she really wanted to know if I was a’right. She stood and looked at me for some time and then laughed and then proceeded to explain how it is a polite way of saying hi over here and that it was kind of rhetoric (at least that is what I inferred from her explanation). I asked her why people complicated things like that when they can just say a word with two letters and instead go to all that rhetoric questions and leave people like me confused. She looked at me, shook her head and laughed and went to her class. We left that discussion at that. I came home told Mr M the incident and he said that I was troubling that poor teacher.

Today when she came in, she said ‘Hi, how are you doing?’ and I burst out laughing. I was totally expecting her “a’right” and was ready with an answer but she did a one up on me and changed her greeting. She was like ‘you happy? is that to your satisfaction madam? are you feeling good?’ I couldn’t stop laughing and was in tears. I am quite a’right now πŸ˜‰
