Something, anything...

This blog is, from this day, dedicated to the memory of Sabina Sehgal Saikia. Skeets had always wanted to make her read this blog. Alas Skeety was unable to do that in time. In 10 months to be precise. This someone is one of the few people who sowed the seeds of 'love for food' in Skeety.
And then, Skeety wants to thank R. Thank You R for asking 'that' question. Thanks for setting a few very important things right. Thanks for everything. Be with Skeets.
********* ********* ********* ********* ********* ********* ********* *********
For change this ain't no food post per se. But then it does revolve around food. It has to! Innit?
A very random post this. Perhaps best describes the *floating* state of mind.'
WE BEGIN
Skeets was sitting at a certain 'Subway' in a certain locality in NCR. Enjoying a fresh BIG plate of crispy iceberg lettuce topped with yum yum gherkins, yum yum jalapenos, yum yum balck olives, yum yum tomatoes, cool cool cucumbers and YUMMIEST of them all the Sweet Onion dressing :) So? That's normal. Eh? NO!!!
Skeety got stares. From EVERY single person who was present there. The only good thing today was that Skeety chewing away the salad more merrily than a cow or sheep chew on their pasture :P
Skeets acknowledged yet ignored stares. Spoke to the self in the mind. Had a nice time basically. And one day Skeets shall share with you a list of restaurants in Delhi where you do NOT get stares for being an unaccompanied girl, eating merrily in a restaurant.
Girls can have all the fun! :D

A great comment section today. I like the "goodies" hanging there waiting to temp the next hungry person. Nice shot.

Just yesterday when I looked at the Times Food Guide and put it back in the compartment in the car, I commented to S that I will miss SSS very much. Even if I didn't know her personally, I will think of her and miss her. Each time I dine out :-)

Hey! This is really sad. She was a great writer.

And yes! Seeing picture of sausages I think the recently opened delicatessen at Oberoi, Delhi is a great place to pick up such stuff. I yesterday got some Milano Salami, chicken ham and Blue cheese. A hole in the pocket though, but worth it.
