Of too much publicity and shoe politics...(Updated)

When can you say that you're receiving publicity? When you are receiving emails from strange people askng whether you got AIR-1 for IIT JEE. When can you say that its turned into too much publicity? When you receive offlines on your yahoo messenger which simply ask you, which IIT? Its seriously amusing to see the sudden surge in interest in me. Until yesterday it was just all my relatives calling me up and asking me to repeat the same thing over and over again. And if you think that once you do well in something, you'll stop receiving lectures, then you're highly mistaken. I still receive them lectures, which go to the tune off, "Don't think this is the end, you're gonna have to work harder to maintain that status quo". And to top it off, now since mum can't scold me about my studies anymore, she's taken to scolding me along with my sis everytime she's scolding her. Its like buy one, get one free, even if I had nothing to do with whatever she's scolding her for. Blah, thats never gonna change, the bane of being an elder sister :)

Coming to shoes, my sis is going back to school and that dame's been shopping for the past three weekends. Now the only thing remaining are her shoes. That poor girl has been cursed with big feet and we've been searching heaven and earth to find her a pair that fits. My mum's been dropping hints about searching in the men's section, its only poor lil me standing between D and the humiliation of wearing extra wide men's shoes :grin: Ofcourse, like all women, I never have enough shoes, so everywhere I go, I fall in love with atleast one pair which is promptly refused on accounts of the no. of shoes already filling my shoe rack and spilling over to everyone elses racks at thinks, I need to get my scissors to work and render some of 'em shoes useless ;) Thats not the end though, since both me and mum have the same shoe size, its getting increasingly difficult to convince my mum that I really haven't bought any shoes recently coz I invariably land up wearing the ones she owns :grin: Anyway, I have somehow convinced her to let me buy a pair today coz its the only place we haven't been to as yet on our shoe quest (courtesy, my ever prepared lawyer who goes by the name of 'The Granny' )....hoping this is the end to D's woes :)

PS : A note to all who've linked me, please change the link to my new blog address, I miss my old blog evertime I see the link to it :(

Update: Bought a pair of really high heels and I am seriously wondering how am I gonna walk in them :)

@NN Welcome to my blog :) It wouldn't be digestible to me too had I topped JEE (never gave it a go actually). I haven't been able to get my old blog up :(

@wtfdude I'm vertically challenged so I need them...period...and we can run in them (many a times I've made a dash for the trains here in Bombay) and the best way to find out what happens when we step on someone's toes is by offering yourself as a guinea pig :)

Oh and yeah, one can never have too many pairs of shoes......the only restriction I can think of is the size of the cabinet :-)
