All Girls' PJ Party!: Photo A Day - PJs

Day 23 of "May Photo A Day Challenge" : PJs


I had to do a lot of digging through the old picture folders in my PC, for today's prompt, to find what I was looking for. I knew it had to be there somewhere, but it kept eluding me for a long long time. Finally remembered where it could be just this morning!



That is my sister, in her pretty red floral PJs, in October 2006. She is a bit shy, so she prefers that I don't post pictures of her on my blog. For that reason, I've cropped the picture to hide her face from "public eyes", but, I have left her beautiful smile in, 'coz smiles are infectious, you see... and there are so many people out there who need one...

As for me... well, I'm not really a PJ person. My preferred nightwear is night-gowns. So, taking the "creative liberty" to bend the rules a bit here... I would also like to share some pics of one of my all-girls PJ party, back in the late 90s...



Those are my school friends (S, A, G) and me, at my best friend's (S') place. Yeah, the same best friend who used to call me over to arrange her cupboards! (Refer to the comments in the post - "Orderliness..."!) She's the one in pink. I'm the one in the white cardigan... the only one wearing any woolens. (Remember, I'm hypothermic?) A is the one in checks. And G is the 4th one.

Technically, this probably won't qualify as a PJ party, as none of us are wearing pajamas. S, G and me are in nighties, and A was apparently planning to crash in her day clothes. (Don't remember why though.) But, it sure as hell was one good sleepover! (As can be made out from the looks on our faces!)

By the way, these were all printed pictures (film-roll days) that I scanned and made a rough collage out of, in Photoshop. I decided to leave out some of the more... ummm... crazy pics. You can click on the collage to zoom in.

The day these pics were taken, my best friend's parents were out of town. It was just her and her younger sister (T) in the house. (These pics were all taken by her younger sister, by the way.) So the 5 of us... all girls... had the entire house to ourselves, which used to happen very rarely in those days. Like... very VERY rarely!

For one whole day and night, we were totally FREE! We cooked our own food... whatever junk we wanted to... and we stayed up as late as we wanted to... and made as much noise as 5 young carefree girls could possibly make... until finally, the neighbors started complaining! No kidding!

Alright then, I am kidding.

Or, not exactly kidding... just 'exaggerating' a little.

Those 'neighbors' were just my best friend's uncle and aunt, who lived in the ground floor portion of the building, while S and her family had the first floor! :P

Well... what can I say? We bloggers HAVE TO spice things up a bit, in order to make it an interesting read for you guys... it's part of our job! :D

LOL @ the last line... part of our job :D
Nice red PJ and a wonderful all girls party! Cool :)

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Thanks Afshan! :D

Yeah, my sister always got such matching sets of PJs... so I knew there had to be a picture of her somewhere in one of those PJs! Glad I finally found it... otherwise, would have just gone ahead with my PJ party!

I've never studied in a hostel... it was always day boarding and I did my Post Grad through correspondence. So never had too many opportunities for sleepovers. Used to share a flat with a female colleague back in Noida... and did have a lot of midnight tea-parties back then, as she was in the UK shift. But when you are working on your own, sleepovers don't mean the same thing anymore, do they?

Hypothermia is just so irritating! I don't even feel like working on the PC in winters, 'coz my fingers get practically frozen up!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Shilpa - A blogger's got to do what a blogger's got to do... right? ;-)
:P

Smita said...

And ur sis ki smile is actually pretty!! She reminds me of Sridevi!!! Seriously!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Smita - yeah... you are right... her smile is looking like Sridevi's in this pic! How come I didn't notice it before? :D
She was actually modelling her hair that day... so we have a whole series of head-closeups - featuring her hair from all possible angles -taken that day! :|
Girls!

Jyothi said...

These reminded me of my hostel friends, back in college. Six of us in nighties, clicked very similar formations. Almost half a roll of photos. Thanks for bringing back those wonderful memories. :)
