6 Quickie Questions

Have you ever kept or still do keep a diary that you write in daily, weekly or randomly?

I think in my school days, I briefly wrote a diary. Nowadays, I blog but it’s not an account of my daily activities. Very rarely I write about something happening currently.

When was the last time you had a weekend quickie of any sort and what did your quickie consist of?
[Your interpretation]

Yesterday, I went on a spur of the moment to the hair salon for hair treatment. It wasn’t quick though, took almost 3 hours. It was a good thing that I went though because the salons are not going to be open on Sunday.

Is life really worth it – as in all it’s cracked up to be?

Definitely! What’s the other option?

Life is a gift and we have to make something out of it. It can be a difficult journey but there is a reward when we achieve our goals. A gift of contentment! If we weren’t alive, we would be nowhere.

What is one thing that annoys you the most – aside from interpret as you wish questions?

Injustice really annoys me, but ignorance and arrogance annoy me more.

What is the strangest thing you have ever worn on your bottom …. half!!”

It as wasn’t strange as it was uncomfortable. The traditional bridal dress in my culture is a “Gharara”, which is a very wide pleated pants-like garment made out of yards of clothes. It’s very difficult to walk in it.

Something like this lady is wearing!

If you could paint a part of your body any colour other than flesh coloured what colour would you paint it/them and why it/them?

I often paint my nails pink or fuchsia. I like rust and browns too. Before the pandemic, I used eyeshadows and colored mascara as well. It looks good!

  1. Oh the Gharara is stunning. I remember them being very heavy as the embellishments and embroidery are stunning. I never wore anything quite as fancy, although my daughter did periodically. Not for a wedding though – she wore a traditional white abaya.

  2. Life is a gift indeed. I hate injustice too. It’s just so unfair. A heavily embellished gharara is very difficult to manage indeed. And this seems like such a coincidence – I painted my nails fuschia just earlier today!

  3. The Gharara is stunning, though I imagine it’s heavy. All that material would trip me up for sure, essentially if it’s like pants, and not a skirt.
    Flared bottom yoga pants sometimes get caught on a bare toe and nearly sends me tumbling 🙄🤦🏼‍♀️😂😂😂

    I should publish excerpts from my age 12 diary. It’s full of tween crushes and angst. Hysterical stuff!

    1. That is a great idea Angie. Barbara did that and it was fun to read the entries.
      The gharara is heavy. And difficult to wear. I never wore it again. Though now people have been seen wearing lighter, cotton based versions of it as a fashion statement.

  4. Good answers Sadje – the other alternative to life being worth it – is that life is not worth it surely.

    Bridal pants looks great, glad l don’t have to wear them .. l sometimes fall over simply putting on boxer shorts in the morning, especially if a toe gets caught in the fabric 🙂

  5. The Gharara is beautiful! In the U.S.A. there was a tradition of a white bridal dress, usually really fancy with lace, embroidery, and embellishments put on it (I’m sure you’ve seen them). It’s only ever worn the once (well unless someone re-marries and wants to wear it again I suppose. I think that’s considered bad luck though). White was to symbolize virginity, which is perhaps an outdated notion in this day and age. But in LDS custom, the bride and groom are both expected to be virgins. I wore a white wedding gown, in a style that wasn’t ‘me’, but the dress fit (I wasn’t skinny). I wanted an eggshell or ecru dress, off-white, but my mother overrode my opinion. My step-daughter to be thought it was hilarious and asked me if I felt ‘right’ wearing a white gown. An omen of our relationship for many years. We didn’t get along. It’s fun to learn about other traditions, and thank you for educating me about yours!

    1. Thank you so much Melanie. I wore a tea pink gharara, as opposed to red which is the usual. Something which we have in common with Indians. Though now people are wearing all sorts of colors and types. Even saw a few western bridal dresses worn by brides here. I’ve seen a lot of western/ American culture through movies and tv shows so they are quite familiar to us.


  6. The Gharara is so beautiful! I kept a journal/diary of sorts at some point as a kid. I then again kept one in my later years with my ex-husband to try and find some kind of release for all the emotions I had swirling around in my mind and heart.
