Three Pet Peeves That Tick Me Off

When someone does not reply back to me!
(Especially on my face)
Seriously, how hard is it to mumble something in reply to something I said? Like not even a proper word ... maybe a 'hmm' or even a grunt to show you heard me. For God's sake if your tongue suddenly feels paralyzed just blink or mime at me. Anything. Anything at all. How difficult is it? Did you die? Did you just suddenly die as soon as you heard my voice? I just hate it. I feel like smashing something when people don't reply to me. Oh and it happens often. The worst case is when it happens in person on my face. It happens on text too. On text people would be in joint conversations with Abbie and I and as soon as I type something ... silence, blank, death. So did you pass out after replying to Abbie? Did your eyesight suddenly fail when you read that little text from me in the conversation? No no, but then your eyesight came back to read the next text Abbie wrote, right? Ah, I see, I see. Well, MAJOR face palm. Go flush your faces in the toilet while I stand here and applaud.  

Fakers, Fakers Everywhere!
To me, the most important thing in the world is to be myself. I just can't fake. I just can't. I can't even put on that artificial guest-mode on. Sure, I do become formal when guests come over but I am still me. I never picked up the weird slang people used around me in school or college just to be cool. I just can't do something that isn't ME just to show someone something or pretend I'm part of some 'group'. So naturally what ticks me off really bad is when I come across fakers. It's funny but the more I hate fakers the more I have an in built faker sensor in my head. If I see a faker I sense it immediately and there go my hate vibes. Listen up people, if you are a certain way, be exactly that. There is absolutely no need to fake your likes, dislikes, class, behavior, language, religion, beliefs, practices for anybody or anything. No. Just no. If you're not a fan of Harry Potter just don't randomly decide to fake excitement nearing a Fantastic Beats movie release date. If your friends like a certain actor don't start faking like you're totally drooling over him when you don't even care for his looks.  If you did not make it, don't post pictures from Pinterest and claim them under your name. Seriously, your idiot is showing. Just stop.

When my advice/opinion is considered insignificant!
I'm not saying I'm Miss Right but chances are if I am suggesting or saying something it IS right. I have a fear of coming off as dumb so whenever I say something or give advice or suggestions I really really think it through first. Even if I am not one hundred percent correct I am not entirely insignificant either. At least give it a chance, hear me out, even if you don't want to accept what I have to say. My two cents are worth much more than your million dollars which shall devalue tomorrow. Tomorrow, when you'll be found saying, "I wish I'd done that." I'll be sitting with my 'told you so' sign. Hmph ...

My Happiest Memory ...

After many many days of all work and hardly any play, I walk towards the magic with my bestie-sis Abbie beside me. Our cameras rolling as we Snapchat and selfie and Instagram and what not because the excitement must be recorded. Walking towards the magic and then seeing the entrance to it. Walking all the way through to get our first glimpse of the magnificent castle. Hogwarts, our home, welcoming us! The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Orlando ... that is my happiest memory!

Just the two of us, no worries, no stress, no troubles, no work, no concept of reality at all. The first touch of the magic brick wall. The feeling of pure bliss in our hearts. The lightheaded feel of joy. No care in the world except the difficult decisions of which merchandise to buy and take home and which one to leave behind. Diagon Alley's cozy alleyways bustling with witches, wizards, and muggles. Magic all around us ... that is my happiest memory!

The first sip of frozen Butterbeer. Posing for the camera as we make our Butterbeer mustache. The brain freeze from sipping too much too quickly because of too much excitement. Sharing the chilled form of liquid bliss in a cup with my Abbie. That is my happiest memory!

Starving ourselves so we can devour the quality ice cream from Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour. Sticky Toffee Pudding, Salted Caramel Blondie, Chocolate Chili, Strawberry Peanut Butter ... so so many extremely delicious flavors to pick from. Sharing it in the beautiful souvenir cup and then heading to the washroom to wash it and stuff it in our bags to take home with us. That is my happiest memory!

Heading to The Three Broomsticks or The Leaky Cauldron to share the delectable Sticky Toffee Pudding with Abbie. The warm dense cakey base, the sweet sticky syrup, the cold vanilla ice cream melting smoothly and trickling down the sides as we grab a spoon each and dig in. Not caring about the calories or the weight gain or anything worldly at all ... That is my happiest memory!

Spending hours just sitting and staring at that magical castle. Spending hours in line to get inside and ride the Forbidden Journey. Shouting so loud just to have the maximum level of fun as the ride twists, turns, and tosses us all around. Screaming at the top of my lungs when Aragog and his spider army attacks. Feeling the hot against my skin as the dragon breathes fire on us. Escaping the Dementors as they try to suck our souls. That is my happiest memory!

Seeing the scarlet engine blow off steam, ready to go. Hearing the choo choo as we get in line to board the Hogwarts Express. Getting aboard and being directed to a cabin. Hearing the trolley lady walk past our cabin. Harry, Ron, and Hermione walk past too. Enjoying the passing display in the window. Feeling the train speed on towards Hogwarts/Diagon Alley. That is my happiest memory!

That majestic dragon sitting atop the rickety Gringotts building. Raising our heads and cameras to witness the dragon breathing fire every few minutes. The hustle and bustle of Diagon Alley. The shops full of merchandise waiting for us to take it home. That is my happiest memory!

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter with my best friend Abbie!
THAT is my happiest memory!

Fictional People Are Better Than Real Ones

I have always found that the people in books and TV are way better than the real humans I come across everyday. They're much much more awesome than real world people. Actually, everything is awesome-er when in fiction! I wish I was living in a fictional world or at least with a lot of the fictional characters that I love. Because honestly, most of the real world humans I know are useless and making my life super pathetic. Yep, I said that.

So if given a chance which fictional character would I want to meet?
I thought about it and decided why should I stop at meeting only one? I love multiple characters for various reasons so I'll have my way and meet them all, thank you very much.

Jace Wayland - The Mortal Instruments
Anybody who does not want this guy must be absolutely crazy. All my life, I've only witnessed men being spineless and gullible so obviously when I read The Mortal Instruments it was love at first sight in Jace's case. Do they not make men like him in real life at all? Not even ONE man in the world has all of his qualities. You'd find the looks but not the strong personality. Or you'd find the perfect build but not that face and jaw lines. Jaw lines. The end, case closed. He's a warrior. He's possessive. He's stunningly gorgeous. He's funny and oh my Lord all that sass and brilliant confidence! Perfection. Oh how very awesome would it be to meet Jace. *sighs* Please arrange for our meeting immediately, someone? And let me be specific here that I am speaking about book Jace right now - not Jamie from the movie or the guy from the TV series. Book Jace is love.

Fred and George Weasley - The Harry Potter Series
I've had horrible experiences with friends all my life. Whenever I read about Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter books or see them in the movies I have a fit of envy. I want them as my friends. I want to be the third friend in their personal group. I want in on all the secrets, all the mischief, all the fun. I want to be the special friend who gets all the benefits when shopping at Weasleys Wizard Wheezes. Most importantly I want the laughter and the ease that Fred and George have. I would love to get to meet the hilarious duo!

Blair and Serena - Gossip Girl
My most favorite women on television ever ever everrrrrr! I love Gossip Girl more than I can even begin to explain in words and Blair and Serena are just TOO good! They're fabulous and beautiful and glamorous and their friendship is beautiful! Yes, while girls would usually want their looks and charm or their wardrobe what I want is their friendship - that deep sister like bond that they share. Okay I admit, I'll take the wardrobe too. *laughs* I've never had that kind of a friend - you know the Blair Serena kind. I always considered my best friends as good as my sisters but sadly I never had the same emotion returned to me. So having friends like Blair and Serena would be the best. We'd hang out together, shop together, travel together (in the fictional world I get permission from my parents to do all that!), cry together, laugh together, do everything together! They'd welcome me with open arms because I've always been great at listening and solving problems. And they have so many problems! This is perfect!

Gubby - The Tiny Person Who Loves Me

This week I was blessed with many tear jerking moments when I witnessed my almost four year old niece saying the sweetest things about me. My Gubbly Bubbly darling has become like a friend to me. She is growing up super fast and now speaks to me like she's my own age. I love talking to her about everything that's on my mind; my thoughts, my crazy wonderings, my troubles. She just comes to me and says, "Beeya, what's wrong?" and I tell her whatever it is on my mind. She listens to me and sometimes suggests the most wonderful of things. Her cute little blabberings often make the entire world's sense to me. Without knowing Gubbzy makes me feel on top of the world.

"Who is your best friend Mannee?" Abbie asked.
"My Beeya is the best. I'm Beeya's best friend!" Gubby replied.

"What's written on my shirt Daadi?" Gubby asked.
"Awesome like daddy," Daadi replied.
"No no no, awesome like Beeya!" she exclaimed.

"Hey Beeya, you're so cute! I love you!" she declared while randomly attacking me with kisses.

"Beeya, if you're sad, apply nail polish, then when you'll look at your nail polish you'll feel happy again," she suggested.

Every day, she does something that just melts my heart. I love her so much sometimes I don't even know if my heart can handle it. My Gubblegum is the tiny person in my life who makes me feel loved! May God bless her always! *insert a million kisses here*

A Letter to She Who Believes In Me

Dear Abbie,

Today's November Journaling Month's prompt wants me to write a letter to someone who believed in me even when I didn't believe in myself. Who else could it be? It's obviously you. The only human being who has stood by me in every possible crazy thing I decided to do. You've been there, you've said what needed to be said to keep me sane and on track, and you've raised me like a parent. I love you Boozie!

When have I not faltered in believing in myself? And when have you ever given up on me? You've been there telling me I would never know if I could unless I tried since the beginning. And look at where it has brought me. I'd have been nothing had it not been for you. I wouldn't have had a blog had it not been for you. I wouldn't even be a baker and cake artist had it not been for you. I remember standing in the kitchen telling you I wanted to try baking after watching Cake Boss but I wouldn't be able to do it. And you said, "Get the stuff and try it. You wouldn't know you could unless you give it a try." You got me my first hand held mixer, the first ingredients and supplies, my first cupcake pan! And look at me today, I'm planning you another super awesome cake for your birthday in ten days because I CAN! You literally are the reason why I am what I am today.

I love you. I really do. And I just can't say it enough. You are the reason I am alive to this day and the reason why I keep going. I love you, I love you, I love you! Thanks for always being the voice of reason and confidence in my life!

XoXo,
Sheratonius (or however you spell it!)

Wannabe Cake Boss

November Journaling Month asks me this: If you could instantly become an expert in any subject or activity, what would it be?

My answer: Of course that would be baking and cake decorating! I want to be the Cake Boss and be at par with or even beyond Buddy Valastro's expertise level. Over the years I have become obsessed with baking and cake decorating. There's so so so much to learn. For each new technique I learn there are about ten new techniques invented in the field. And I want to learn it all!

If given a chance I would want to become an expert baker and cake artist. I want to become the person who knows EVERYTHING there is about cake decorating. I want to be a pro at fondant like Buddy. Like swish swoosh, fondant on cake, absolute perfection, done! Like sculpted cakes in two seconds. Details, intricate buttercream designs in the blink of an eye. Smoothing cakes with blindfolds on. Piping with my eyes closed. Cakes going in and out like it's the easiest thing to do on planet earth. THAT kind of perfect!

Imagine if this was actually possible. Like I slept one day and woke up the next with these special cake decorating powers flowing out of me bum. Haaaaaa! How very extra ordinarily awesome would that be!

"Saraallie" ~ The Super Duper Mega Blockbuster Movie


The grand premiere happens and BAM the movie is an instant hit.
It's a Super Duper Mega Blockbuster!
It reigns over the box office and the audience goes crazy.
It's the talk of the town. It's remembered for centuries.
It's written about in history. It's THE movie.
It's the movie titled "Saraallie" - a movie about me.

Funny thing is that I've actually planned this out in my head. My biopic! I've even had such discussions with a couple of friends. I have lived such an exciting life so far, what an exciting movie I'd make! It would be grand. Very grand.

As far as movies are concerned I'm more Bollywood than I am Hollywood so my mega blockbuster biopic would be a Bollywood production for sure. Hollywood is just too plain to be able to depict my life properly. It would be a fantabulous, grand, glorious movie falling in the genre of Drama. Oh what a drama it would be. Full of emotions! Happiness of the ecstatic kind, sadness of the melancholic kind, love of the sincerest kind, hate of the severest kind, anger of the dangerous kind, kindness of the compassionate kind.


I've put in a great deal of thought in this but there's one thing I still haven't made up my mind about. Who would play me in my biopic? I honestly couldn't come up with anybody. My question is, can I play myself in my movie? Nobody can play me and do me justice! I'm an original piece - inimitable! *laughs* But if it's absolutely necessary to have someone else play me I think Parineeti Chopra is fit for the role! Firstly, she's a brilliant actress. She's played silly, emotional, girly, and all kinds of roles and done them all so so so well. Secondly, I'm a full figure chubby chubbers and I can't have a super thin actress play me; Parineeti - I've seen her chubby too and after her weight loss she still hasn't disappeared like the other women going mental over that overrated size zero figure. I think she can play both of my crazy and emotional sides well. She can do both glamour and silly so she should be great. But still, my first choice is myself. I would want to play myself and if that's not 'allowed' then Parineeti it shall be. And lets be real, the Drama Queen soundtrack makes for a perfect background score for me! Hahaha!

I may be unsure about the actress but there is one thing I know for sure. My movie would be a blockbuster directed by Karan Johar! Nobody can match the sassy and classy of my life better than Karan Johar. He's the only single human being capable of doing justice to my life. His extra ordinary stylish movies, over the top emotions, and all that glamour, glitz, and shine are what I need to perfect my movie! So KJo it shall be!

Wow! I actually want someone to make this possible. This is an instant super hit!!!!
