"I'm Singing in the Rain, Just Singing in the Rain! What a Glorious Feeling, I'm Ha-a-a-a-a-a-appy Again!"

Sometimes, you feel like every aspect of your life couldn't be more wonderful...let me rephrase that...no aspect of your life could be more wonderful. You have a reason to smile before you go to sleep, you have a reason to wake up and go to work, you love your work, you share a wonderful camaraderie with everyone there, you're losing weight although the people at Papa John's recognise your voice now, someone keeps throwing money into your bank account, your writing's getting to the point you call 'prolific', you're back to being flexible (ooh, what an advantage that is!) there's simply nothing getting you down! And then you remember you can finally do that thing you've wished you could do for a couple and a half decades...so you start singing!

People in Noida in and around Great India Place must have thought I was out of my mind, and I probably was. I was Gene Kelly, Peggy Norwood and Julie Andrews all in one - my voice sounds like a cacophonic combination of the three too, methinks - and I couldn't care less that people were stopping to stare at a woman who's screaming, "Let the stormy clouds chase...everyone from the place...come on with the race...I've a smile on my face! I wa-a-a-alk down the lane, with a haa-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-appy refrain...I'm singin', just singin' in the rain!!!!" Nevermind the forty degree sun, nevermind the swearwords I don't quite register, nevermind the disapproving old ladies eyeing my midriff while I jump about, nevermind the catcalls...what a glorious feeling, I'm ha-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-appy again!!!! :-)
