Hella folks! Another weekend post. I know, it's been a flurry of posts. I am in compulsive blogging mode 🙂 And it is only on weekends such as these that I can sit back and chat up. So, what makes for a beautiful Sunday? A laid back, late start. Check. Getting all dolled up in... Continue Reading →
Nerdy Sunday! The Fault in our Stars- John Green.
1.How/Why/Where did you buy the book? Darned cable TV, kept showing adverts for a movie with a girl with nasal prongs and a bob. I thought it was one of those, irritatingly "inspiring" cancer stories. And then, whenever I went to The Virgin Store or Jarir (bookstore in the Middle East) I saw this bunch... Continue Reading →
New Year Lust List- HER Edition!
We shall let the pictures do the talking, shall we? What's on your lust- list this coming year? Till next time... Dr J.
Grubbie Tuesday- Alas, I have nothing! Except love…
I have nothing to post on this Grubbie Tuesday. Stove and I have broken up. Scalpel and I have gotten back together. I'm back to eating for sustenance rather than pleasure. Hmmm.... the above sentence may not be entirely true! Anyhoo... I thought, I'd ditch Grubbie Tuesdays. Maybe make it my Blog Holiday. But here... Continue Reading →
Nerdy Sunday- Weekly bookshelf preview. And over-hyped, under- performers….
What's on Dr J's book shelf this week? Aah..nothing spectacular folks! It's time to dust off old undergraduate books and start pouring over the "basics" again. Whole bunch of exams coming up 😦 The "reading- for- pleasure" books will soon dwindle, and probably become non- existent again in the near future. The magazine subscriptions will...

What’s on my book- shelf this week? And reading routine.

Gone girl and Jack Reacher, odd but able company.
Here's another confession. I am an addict. An internet addict. The world wide web has well and truly ensnared Dr J. I can spend endless hours on the internet. Doing particularly nothing. Anything. Everything. The one downside of constant travel is compromise. Adjustment. One has to be willing to let go. Of habits,... Continue Reading →
Here’s another Nerdy Sunday! Girls of Riyadh- Rajaa Alsanea.
Hella folks! How have you all been? Today's post has been festering on my browser as a tab for three days now. I just can't seem to come around to finishing it. I even considered just ditching this post altogether. But then, what of my word? All the hoo haa about what was to come... Continue Reading →
Nerdy Sunday! Curious about the veiled Arab world?
Hella Folks! It's been a while since I did a book review. Not that I haven't been reading. Quite the opposite actually.I just don't seem to get a moment to sit down, fire up Mr Lappy, click cutesy pictures, copy excerpts from the book and then give my not-so-worthy two cents on the book! Are... Continue Reading →
What’s on Dr J’s bookshelf? Reads for the week…
One of the perils of marrying someone who is not from your city, is having your belongings spread out randomly. To complicate matters further, the two sets of parents live in two capital cities across two states- almost 750 kilometers apart. You then have your other half live abroad, and you chose to pursue your... Continue Reading →
