Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

23 Jan

Conversations at a family wedding:

With my brother-in-lawyer:

OJ: What happens to the victims who don’t receive compensation or a response?

b-i-l: We’re filing a PIL on their behalf.

OJ: You’re such a blessing in this family of social Rumpelstiltskins!


With my fashionista cousin:

OJ: I got myself a Bottega Veneta tote.

Cousin: *gasp* *scream* OmigodOmigodOmigod!

OJ: You’re such a blessing in this family of style Rumpelstiltskins!


With my theatre actor/director cousin:

OJ: The synopsis of “Aftermath” gave me goosebumps.

Cousin: We’ve been rehearsing intensely, do come see the plays and tell your friends about them.

OJ: You’re such a blessing in this family of literary Rumpelstiltskins!


And then I spent the rest of the evening making sure they didn’t talk to each other.

    I awarded you the ‘butterfly’ at my place. It’s perfectly alright if you didn’t want to do the tag.

    D: In plainspeak, I think that would be called ‘fraud’. 😉

    Aunty G: You live wires all of you? Perish the thought!

    dipali: I imagine that was said in passing, with a thwack to the skull…much like my older cousins would say “bookworm” as they traipsed off to the beach. It only made my nose fall in deeper. 🙂

    Piper: How is your dad doing?

    rads: Err….umm…. tag? Honey, refresh my memory? 😳

    ah, my bad. Apparently the award’s a tag. But there isn’t a rule that you ought do it. Check my blog? 🙂

    Thanks for remembering OJ. Physically I guess he`s much better. But he`s been so completely demoralized. Its difficult to see him that way. I`m clueless. Dunno what to do..

    Omigod omigod omigod you’ve got to get the Bottega Veneta tote to the next IH meeting!!!
    And we can discuss the PIL.

  11. Shivani January 25, 2009 at 12:13 pm #

    You have a uber-cool , eclectically artsy family I must say OJ 🙂

  12. the mad momma January 26, 2009 at 8:18 pm #

    LOL! but why? I so badly want to know what would have happened if they did talk to each other…

  13. Orange Jammies January 27, 2009 at 9:09 am #

    rads: Will do. 🙂

    Aunty G: I will say this, Aunty G, it was a very special, badly-needed weekend.

    Piper: With your permission, I’d like to write to you about this. May I?

    Kiran: And that’s the end of the meeting. 😉

    Shivani: Oh they’re just a bunch of crackpot Parsis, really.

    the mad momma: 1. They’d have chased me with chopsticks. 2. You know I can’t run in a saree. 3. No OJ, no blog.

  14. In love with my life January 27, 2009 at 12:33 pm #

    “How to run in a saree while being chased by chopstick weilding family…..”
    That would have made for a very entertaining post:-)

    Hope your weekend was good.

  15. Orange Jammies January 27, 2009 at 11:14 pm #

    In love with my life: 🙂 I’m sure. Except I can barely get past two lines these days. My weekend was fabulous, thanks.

  16. Piper.. January 28, 2009 at 11:51 pm #

    hey of course. I would feel priviledged 🙂
    On a serious note, I could do with some serious talking myself 😦 My email is piperish@gmail.com.

  17. Orange Jammies January 29, 2009 at 5:18 pm #

    Piper: Thanks! Will write.

  18. Mamma Mia! Me a Mamma?!? January 30, 2009 at 3:35 pm #
