Lights Out Again! No Problem: Prepping

~~~

Recently, once again we had a power outage and this time they went out in the middle of the night and so we had to scrabble around in the dark looking for a flashlight and so it seems each time we have one I get new and better ideas on how to deal a little better with it for the next go around.

So, in addition to the few we already had, I went ahead and purchased a box of twelve COB LED dual and single switch lights and a few solar light bulbs.

~~~

Once they arrived I loaded the light switches with Duracell batteries then proceeded to stick at least one in each room, bathroom and hallway on the walls just above every light switch using command refill strips. I also put a few in the closets, and under the sinks in the kitchen and bathrooms. And the reason I chose to use the command strips this time is so if and when I have to change the batteries I could easily remove the switch from the wall, change the battery and put it back up with another command strip.

~~~

I like that we did this because whenever we get up to use the bathroom at night we can turn on those switches instead. And I like that we know if the lights go out in the middle of the night again during a power outage we won’t be scrambling around for a flashlight because we are prepared and set up for the next one. All we’ll do is turn on the switches as we need them. And it is amazing that they are so bright.

~~~

So, in addition to setting things up this way for the next power outage, I thought a tabletop hibachi would come in pretty handy too as it saves on charcoal because it uses way less charcoal than with a regular or larger grill. Which we can use to cook our food outdoors during the day the next time the lights go out on us for a couple of days.

~~~

OMG! This video is so cute and funny I figured it would be great for this topic.

Somebody Robbed Me! Princess Of Zamunda…

~~~

~~~

One summer I stayed at my oldest brother’s apartment for a few weeks. He lived within walking distance from the beach and from my part-time job working in the pizza shop that I worked for a few days. One day while we were both gone for the day we returned to find that someone broke into the apartment and stole all of my clothes. Yes, all my clothes and things in my suitcase were taken. The robbers didn’t take a TV, nor any furniture nor anything else in the apartment other than my things. I thought it quite weird that my clothes and things were all they took.

So my brother asked me to give him an itemized list of all of my clothes and the other items. I said why should I. Are you going to be able to get any of my clothes back? That suitcase had all the summer gear I owned. So I said it’s not like he was going to see someone wearing my clothes and make them take it off and give it back. The thieves probably sold them off by now anyway.

So recently I had a funny thought. Maybe the thief thought I was the “Princess of Zamunda”. LOL! You know like the Prince of Zamunda, the role Eddie Murphy played in coming to America. You know the scene when all their clothes that were stolen was being worn by all the people in the neighborhood. Then the thief walks up to sell to them their own gold toothbrushes. I could not stop laughing at the thought of it.

~~~

~~~

I suspect that these are the people that have stolen our luggage. [Semmi]

(they observe the people that are wearing all their princely robes and clothing that was stolen from their luggage)

Do you want to buy some toothbrushes? I’ve got some real fly personal hygiene products and a hairdryer. [the thief]

Thief! Stop thief! Come back, thief! [Semmi]

Semmi, let him go. [Akeem – Prince of Zemunda]

Those things belong to us. [Semmi]

Let them wear our princely robes. We’re in New York now. Let us dress as New Yorkers. [Akeem –Prince of Zemunda]

Honestly, I could watch this movie a thousand times and never get bored, it is absolutely the funniest, fun movie around.

Here at the last end of the video is the scene of the people wearing their clothes and the thief trying to sell them their own toothbrushes, what a comical scene.

And this scene always has me in stitches.

The Man Loves Him Some Babes: Patiala Babes

~~~

Babes! My first thought when I heard it on this show was wow! What a cute name to have! And Inspector Hanuman absolutely adores her. He is such a loving, warm and kind man. Especially being that it’s a second marriage for them both. When you look at them you would think they were made for each other from the very start. I just love how Hanuman is so understanding, who cannot love him. I love watching how they interact with each other especially on this occasion when Babes asked him for some of his money. It was so cute to observe him as he stood up straighter, smiled and as his chest puffed out with pride knowing his wife depended on him financially. It’s so cute to see a man who is not afraid to take on his wife’s needs in that way and to see a woman who doesn’t mind letting him know she needs him in that way. I tell you it is so obvious they really are in love with each other.

~~~

~~~

I need some money, Hanuman. [Babes]

(She puts her hand forward, palm up to Hanuman.)

I am being looted! [Hanuman]

(Both men laugh out loud.)

That’s right. You deserve it! Sir, you have become a family man now. And it is the duty of women to eye for their husband’s salary. Yes, that’s right. What do you say? Right. [Lalit]

(Lalit is the loyal, kind and helpful assistant to Inspector Hanuman.)

No, that’s not true. I want to do a ritual. That’s why I am asking you. This is the first “Dhantheras” after our wedding. You need not give if you have any problem with it. I don’t have any intention to blow away your money. It is not even compulsory. [Babes]

(Hanuman looks at Babes with a proud smile on his face.)

Babita, you took it seriously. I too was pulling the leg of my wife, just like other men do with their wives. [Hanuman]

(He reaches into his pocket and pulls out a bundle of neatly folded cash and places it into her hand.)

Listen the thing is my entire salary belongs to you. You can spend it the way you want. You can do whatever you want with it. I am not going to question you. [Hanuman]

(The men start to walk away.)

No, I don’t want to make unnecessary expenditures. I was just… [Babes]

I consider you as the form of Goddess Lakshmi of my family. You will always do good for our family. Why do men earn? They earn so that their wives can blow it off. Isn’t it, Lalit? [Hanuman]

Absolutely. [Lalit]

Okay then, “Happy Dhantheras” to you. [Hanuman]

Mr. Hanuman is very generous. [Lalit] 

(Both men walk away with happy smiles on their faces as they head into the office and Minnie stood by watching as her mother asked him for money and she doesn’t approve of this at all. But somehow Babes lets her know that this is what husbands and wives do. They share the breadwinner’s income between the two and that it’s ok.)

Glitter Faeries Stopped By…

~~~

Over the past few weeks, we have an unwanted visitor, a stray dog who’s been running around going from place to place as if she owns the place. And now I have a beef with her because she killed one of my favorite cats. This cat was up there with one of the most beautiful cats we ever had besides the cat of many colors that someone stole away from us last year. It’s kinda hard to manage and keep them as safe as we would like to when all the cats and dogs live outdoors all the time. We never bring them in the house and so I am ok with them all being outdoors all the time because I always can look out the window and watch the cats frolicking and playing and they love sitting in our window sills and standing up looking inside our screen doors when I have the doors open during the day to bring in sunlight. I wish there was more that we could do as far as protecting them from attacks.

~~~

~~~

Well, this recently departed cat had an extremely fuzzy furry light gray coat and she had the cutest eyes and pretty eyelashes. So I was so upset that this dog has come here and taken one of our cats away.

It seems no matter how much we try we cannot seem to run her off as we were trying some of everything over the past few days and nothing seems to work. We even had one of our yard guys shoot his pistol up in the air and it seemed to work at first because the stray ran off but later that day my husband and I saw her near the highway making her way back towards our area. I guess it’s true that a dog can find it’s way back thru smell. Well, I wish she would smell her self back to where she originally came from. Anyway, so she parades up and down and across the fields and is always sitting on our porch as if she owns the place now. And then I noticed we were getting gnats inside the house and they were hanging around the screen doors trying to get in. I figured this stray must be bringing them so I took the outdoor broom and swept off the porch then got some really hot water with ammonia in a small bucket and poured it all over the porch to clean it off and to run off the gnats and the odor that stray dog has left behind.

~~~

~~~

So by noon the porch was bone dry and looking so much shinier, cleaner and smelled fresher and so it looked as if some glitter fairies stopped by. (Smile) But the truth is that I had our handyman paint the porches and the driveway beige and then sprinkle them with glitter. I know that sounds crazy but I absolutely love it.

~~~

~~~

I love and adore everything that has to do with fantasy stories, books, and art about fairies and mermaids. They are so cute, irresistible and magical. And so I am loving these videos below as well.

When Your Husband Is Unfaithful: Balika Vadu

~~~

~~~

Love for another woman gives rise to bitterness

in a husband’s behavior towards his wife.

This neglect doesn’t just hurt the wife’s delicate emotions

but it shatters the years old trust.

He’s Got It Bad: Jagat Tells Gauri He Loves Her On Balika Vadu

~~~

What were you doing? What if something had happened to you? Have you gone mad? [Gauri]

Yes, I’ve gone mad. I don’t know what I’m doing and why. No, Gauri. You can’t marry someone else. Never. [Jagat]

Jagat! [Gauri]

~~~

~~~

A letter arrived for Gauri (Anjum Farooki) and she finally opened up and told Jagat (Shashank Vyas) the secret she’s been withholding from him about her life. They were both sitting in the study hall together preparing to get ready to go take their first year’s final exams. Jagat read the letter too from her uncle as she was told the guy named Ashish whom her family wanted her to marry was coming to meet up with her for lunch. It’s unfortunate for her that her life was being all planned out for her in that immediately after she finished her first year of medical college she was to leave school and get married to this guy they had chosen for her. So she left Jagat at the study hall and went outdoors out front to meet Ashish as he’d just arrived at her college and was standing there waiting for her when she came out and so they arranged to meet up at the Galaxy Cafe right after she took her final examination and poor Jagat ran in behind her and was standing there right in the doorway watching as she and the guy conversed and that’s when the spirit of jealousy overtook him, as he could not stand to see her and this guy together.

Jagat being so upset about all of this couldn’t properly concentrate on his final exam paper and so he left the testing facility early so you couldn’t really tell if he completed the whole exam paper or not, but Gauri could see what was going on with him and after she finished her exam paper she searched everywhere for him but couldn’t locate him so finally after seeing some of his friends outside the boys dorms she left a message with them to tell Jagat to wait for her there and in a half-hour she will return after her meeting at the Galaxy Cafe.

~~~

~~~

So Gauri left to meet the prospective groom Ashish who flew into India to meet her from America. Gauri finally was honest and confessed to the guy that she wasn’t interested in marriage at this time because she wanted to become a doctor first and foremost, so he seemed like an understanding type of person and so asked that they try to be friends in the meantime and that he will pop the question of marriage to her again at a later date.

By this time Jagat had frantically made his way to the cafe and could see from a distance as Gauri shook hands with this new guy as they parted ways. So in an attempt to catch up with her the fool started yelling out her name, as he walked all in the middle of noisy traffic, but no matter how much he tried to get her attention he couldn’t and as she began to walk away he kept on yelling out her name as he was walking over to her but then in a quick second she jumped into a cab. I tell you I couldn’t believe my eyes but Jagat was persistent and started running in behind her taxi as it was leaving and there he was in the middle of the road running, yelling out her name and chasing down this taxi cab. He ran and ran until he finally caught up with her cab in at an intersection and then the fool jumped out in front of the cab in order to stop it. To Gauri’s surprise, she spotted him and yelled to the driver to stop the cab as she got out of it yelling at Jagat about how dangerous it was for him to jump in front of her taxi. The fool took a chance on his life with that long run in behind this taxi as he was drenched in sweat, confused and all out of breath by the time it was all over.

So here he was all discombobulated, sweaty and trying to catch his breath as he tried to tell her the words she’s been waiting to hear from way back on the night she’d revealed her feelings to him but he couldn’t confess his feelings for her because he knows he is still married to Anandi (Pratyusha Banerjee) his childhood marriage wife.

~~~

~~~

How can you marry someone else? Because I love you. I love you Gauri. I love you. I can’t bear to see you marrying someone else. And I won’t let it happen. You’re mine. I love you Gauri. I love you. I love you. [Jagat]

He told her over and over again that he loved her as he grabbed her, pulled her into his chest and held her tightly as if he will never let her go and never wants to lose her. All of this right there in this circle, in the middle of all of that, backed up and stalled traffic caused by him stopping her taxi.

I Love You Gauri. [Jagat]
