3*7 Tag

In this one, there are 7 lists and you have to fill in three things in each one…the rules are as follows:

– Tag as many u want!
– Link their pages in your tag post
– Post a message / leave a comment screaming that they r tagged
– Mention the person who tagged you in your tag post, and link their blog.
– Write 3 X 7 things about yourself ..

I made Atul tag me and then behaved lazy…then Shalu tagged me with the same tag few days back. Forced myself to complete this today as I had sometime in hand…needless to say ‘it was fun’

3 places I would pack my travel bag for
Leh
– I have seen pictures of this place through the cameras of so many friends and I reallyyy wish to visit once before I die.
Goa – Been there once and want to go again.
New York – During Christmas time to enjoy the festivity in the air 🙂

3 On-Screen characters I love to watch

Rick O’Connell – The Mummy series, I find this character to Hot and Witty.
Viren – Abhay Deol’s character in Socha Na Tha…cute to the core.
Mahi – in Mahi Way…do I need to say why? 😛
3 moods that describes me the best
Confused – I always am and some how I believe that I would always be CONFUSED about everything that I did or would do in life 😦
Excited – I usually am about every new thing in life
Numb – comfortably!

3 things I always think of doing on a weekend… but never did

Going for a walk – Evening walk that is, cos I know I am not a morning walk kind of person. But even then…I never happen to do it
Watch 3 movies back to back – either there are no good movies or no money or no company 😦
Paint – its been long since I have touched the brush and the canvas with some colors.
3 things from my childhood that I cant forget
– I remember scaring my brother every now and then as a kid. Once there was an electricity failure and I called out to him from the other room with power on my face, cald in mom’s shawl, with a torch beneath my face…standing at the very corner of the door. He cam running and rest is history 😛
– as a kid while sleeping me and my brother would somehow start giggling and then it would never stop. Mom and Dad used to shout at us to “shut up & sleep”, we would keep quite for a while and then any of us would make that noise while trying to suppress the laugh and then it would start all over again.
– I can’t forget Dino’s childhood and how I became a kid while talking to him “Dino ko ninni aayi?” …”Dino chalo gumi gumi chalein”. Those were the best days of my life… 😀

3 things I would never say NO to 
Going on a trip 🙂
Donuts 🙂 🙂
Movies 🙂 🙂 🙂

3 things I cant live without 

Phone – I am 24*7 online cos of my lovely cellphone
MS Word – to write, I have to care less about spelling mistakes
Dreams – which I see with open eyes 😀
 
I tag no one… as half of the bloggers’ population have already done this one…guess I am late.

Shobhit’s Return Tag

So, Shobhit did complete my tag AND did come up with his own questions, hence tagging me again….I would go ahead and answer his questions and would not contribute in the vicious circle of tagging by coming with my own questions again.

1. Which would you choose for a pet ? Fish or a Dog ?

I think anyone who is regular to my blog would be able to answer this on my behalf but for those who are not regular I would go ahead and specify it once again that anytime in my life if I get an opportunity to keep a pet it would ALWAYS be a Dog….a German Shepherd named Dino …FOR SURE…

2. You are stranded drenched in the rain at the roadside, with no possible mode of transport available in the heavy rain. Who would you call for help without a second thought ?

If I am at a walking distance from the desired destination I would rather walk… otherwise I’ll call my Dad or brother…or anyone who is in my phonebook and resides somewhere near to my location…respectively.

3. If you are given a chance to be a non-living object, what would you be ?

A beautiful painting right in front of the entrance of the house to mesmerize everyone who happen to visit…

4. What would be the three things you would be worried the most about if you suddenly had to shift to a new residence ?

* About the shifting of everything that we posses from a sofa set or almirah or dinning table to my VCDs or utensils or accessories for that matter

* About friends who would no longer be ‘easily accessible’ to meet in person

* About commuting to usual places that I often had to visit

5. On a rainy Sunday afternoon, would you

(a) Enjoy the yummiest of snacks with hot coffe/tea on the terrace ? or

(b) Go for a walk in the rain with that ‘someone special’ ?

I would rather be enjoying yummiest snacks with chai on the terrace and talk to that ‘someone special’ over the phone….eating is always preferred to anything else…

6. What is the first thing that you observe about a stranger ?

Facial Expressions… whether the person is smiling or frowning or sad or is thinking about something…

7. Which one subject at school would you have skipped if given the choice ?

ECONOMICS….any day!!! If Eco were a person I would have killed it by pushing it from the highest building thus saving the coming generations from its Horror…

8. En route to your best friend’s B’Day party, you are buying a gift for him/her when you suddenly see the last piece of something which you wanted for dear life. You have money to buy just one thing. What would you buy ?

This has happened with me quite a few times in life, I ended up and would always end up buying a gift, that smile on their faces are worth many of those ‘last pieces of many some things’ 🙂

9. If you were allowed to go back in time and un-do one thing, what would it be ?

I would go back and plant an inception in my own mind to take up Eng (Hons) or Journalism in Graduation instead of B.Com (Hons) which as per me after years is a waste…

10. One movie that you can watch again any day and any hour. Just ONE ??

The Mummy is probably the one which I have watched the maximum number of times cos my brother loves that one and reminds me of how Brendan Fraser looks in the movie to get that Green Signal for that movie from me…. But for me, I would go ahead with Socha Na Tha

…and as Shobhit cheated with one more song I’ll cheat too 😀 …with one more movie…Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani… 😀

I’ll go one step ahead of Shobhit now by mentioning Beethoven (all parts), I would love to watch them but then I intentionally don’t watch them these days…

With that I’ll end this post…but before I do, would like to mention one thing which did upset me. Shivani, who is one of my closest friends; lost her pet yesterday, her name was Ruby, she was 15 year old cute lil Pom mix. It’s equally saddening when you hear something like that from any corner of the world. It takes you back to the same moment in time when you were at that stage. May she & her family recover soon with the loss.

Tbg’s Pending Tag

I was tagged by The Bald Guy about a month and a half back…there is still one pending, that is the most interesting one which needed some research..hopefully I’ll complete that too…soon!!!

I’m supposed to answer these questions, then make up my own ten questions for you and pass on the tag.

1. What one material thing are you hoping/ scoping to inherit?

Ans: A Nikon DSLR D60 (18-55mm)

2. You’re driving. It’s great weather. Attractive member of opposite sex in expensive car looks at you and half-smiles. You’re in a relationship. Do you return the look and half-smile back?

Ans: I don’t think I would get time to notice him if he is in an expensive car…

(Moral – You should not drive an expensive car if you want to get noticed by me 😛 )

3. Can’t smell or can’t taste? For six months, and if you had to chose, would you rather lose your sense of smell or not be able to taste anything?

Ans: Sense of smell… You can control what you taste as per your choice, but sometimes you are forced to smell what you would never want to… so I think I can give away my sense of smell easily

4. Pick a situation

a. You’re 42. Would you rather go without sex for three years and win a lottery after that, enabling you to never have to work again? Or

b. Get twice the lottery money now (at 42) but have your partner sleep with your boss?

Ans: Option a. .. I sure would be possessive about my partner.

5. What’s a quicker turn off, bad pronunciation or maroon lipstick?

Ans: Maroon Lipstick

6. Would you rather your kid turn out to be a nymphomaniac or gay?(For my amusement, please answer in the format: I would rather my kid be —)

Ans: I would rather my kid be jo uska ban ne ka mann kare.. (abhi k liye itna hi…baaki jab honge tab dekhi jayegi 😛 )

7. For which one thing have you not forgiven your mother?

Ans: Not visiting the doc when she should..

8. Would you rather go bald or lose your front tooth?

Ans: I would like to keep my hair..

9. Your sibling is sleeping with your married close friend. Who do you go to first, sibling or married close friend?

Ans: Close friend

10. When was the last time you cried that wasn’t while watching a movie?

Ans: Weekend

As I do have some time in hand, I have come up with few questions on my own that I would like others to answer for me:

1)  What would you eat – a donut or golgappe?

2) What would you do to get the remote from your irritating sibling who is watching an action flick and in turn forcing you to watch it, when you want to watch Ducktales?

3) You would want your spouse to be stupid and rich or poor and smart/intelligent?

4) Low neckline or low waist?

5) You know that a member of opposite sex is attracted towards you. You don’t consider that person to be your ‘someone special’. Would you still go ahead and let him/her fall for you to enjoy all the attention?

6) What would you do to seek attention of your ignorant spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend?

7) You have a fetish for ….

8.) If given a chance whom would you replace your life with and why?

9) What would you do if you get to know that you would die today in next 5 hours?

10) One song that you never get bored of…just ONE??

My Sins Against Gender Stereotypes.

TBG tagged me here wayyyy back…

If you are a woman,

Have you ever wanted something that is considered ‘manly’ ? Like a basketball, a cell phone, a dog, a camera or a new laptop? A new car or motor bike? Ever wanted to be a pilot? A doctor or not a nurse? And the manliest want of them all – The remote!

As a kid did you enjoy playing with a bat and a ball?

There was a time when books were considered ‘manly’, women authors had to pretend to be men – would you say books are still rather manly – women should want to embroider and crochet?

 

If you are a man,

Have you ever wanted something that only women are supposed to want – like bags, shoes, clothes, creams, perfumes, babies, flowers? A peaceful home and a happy family? Have you ever been afraid of the dark or of insects?

As a kid did you ever want to play ‘teacher-teacher’, cooking or did you like playing with a doll? Have you ever enjoyed cooking? Bought something in pink? Loved chocolates?

 

So here’s the tag – Please list at least ten things you have ever wanted or done which your gender is not supposed to.

The tag is called ‘My Sins against Gender-Stereotypes’. And you must tag twelve blogging friends  or else you will be cursed to wear blue clothes pants if you are a woman and pink shirts if you are a man – for next twelve years 

  1. I HATE Chocolates
  2. I Love playing Video games, its one of the best stress busters for me 😀
  3. Usually, I like guys who are younger to me
  4. I had a Dog and I loved him immensely, I was the one who would take him for a walk along with me (usually evenings & sometimes night)
  5. I was a bully in my school, fought* with boys numerous times (*fights not limited to words only)
  6. I somehow can’t talk like “aaungi, jaungi etc.’ with Mom & Dad….whenever I talk to them I talk like a guy…’mai late ho jaunga, mai khana bana lunga’ types…and As per my Mom & my bhai…I walk like a guy…. (something like Meg Ryan may be)
  7. I love hooting in the hall while watching a movie… and I feel sad for not watching Wanted on a theatre
  8. I don’t spend much time in front of a mirror, inspecting each strand of hair.
  9. If I had to live alone, m sure my room would look like that of a Bachelor….cluttered with everything around, whether I need it or not. It doesn’t mean that I don’t like to be organized but I would be more than happy if someone would do it for me while I lie on the couch watching soccer 😛
  10. I love speed. Though I don’t drive,,,left it way back. But I have drove a car and a scooty and speed was the common factor in both the cases.
  11. I love wearing jeans with a khadi ka kurta…I have often been referred as Munnabhai 😛
  12. I can’t remember if I have ever “blushed” 😛 

And I tag everyone who happen to read this post and haven’t yet done this tag. Yes…You, my dear reader; are tagged…and you better complete this one or else you will be cursed to wear blue pants if you are a woman and pink shirts if you are a man – for next twelve years 😛

Have Fun!!!

Tag-a-thon

It was overwhelming to see my name in the list of tagged people when I read thisThank You Ramit

The very first random fact about me should be that I hardly get tagged by anyone 😦 … this one is the warm-up fact …the actual Seven are soon to follow…

I have tried to create a list keeping in mind that I share something that I haven’t shared before or may be a lil more detailed one…so here you go…

1) Something about Chocolates and Ice-creams – I hate chocolates…yeah you read it right…I HATE chocolates. The only one that I can managed to have is 5 star…cos it has lots of caramel. I am not fond of ice-cream either…. Does that make me an alien??

I remember eating 5 star and scaring the hell out of my friends by sticking it on my teeth (this in no way should indicate that I look horrible…you shall kick that thought out of your mind if it creeps in). And yeah…this clearly states that I don’t like Hot Chocolate Fudge either, for most my friends its H E A V E N (now I am sure you would certify me as an Alien)

2) Some more about Food – I Love to eat…spicy chatpata khaana… I Love everything that my Mom cooks except the leafy vegetables…tinda, lauki, tori etc. comes in this category of inedible food for me.

I Love non-veg food…but its been about 6months that I haven’t touched it. I left non-veg food for sometime. I stuck a deal with God that if he jaldi-jaldi will cure my brother of jaundice and it’s after effects then I’ll leave non-veg for about a year. *Touchwood*

Apart from non-veg I am deprived of normal food these days too…cos I decided to go on dieting and am following a diet plan made by a dietician… as a result of which I was able to wear my old Capri after years. So, this is the only thing that motivates me these days…as sometimes (more than a couple of times in a day) depression takes over and I keep thinking ‘kya life hai yaar….na kha sakte…na so sakte’ (I have early morning office so have to get up at 5:30 am…itna jaldi toh school time pe nahi uthi)

3) Something about the clothes I choose to wear – I like to dress up differently…in a nice way that is. If you see me in usual days (other than office days) where I can be myself… then you would notice something or the other which would stand out… be it the bag that I like to carry, or the earrings, or the bracelet, or my hand made tattoos (sample is on FB)…or it could simply be the smile. I also like Nandita Das look…kohl eyed, almost no lipstick…and the one that Vidya Balan portrayed in Paa…ethnic…

I have also been commented and related to hippie style of dressing…

4) Wishing Birthdays – I like to wish those who are close to me at sharp 12 midnight on their Birthdays & Anniversaries (only If I remember the dates) or any other occasion like mother, father, brother, bhabhi day…V-Day, Diwali, Dussehra etc etc. I wake them up at 12 for the same purpose.. I also can’t wait to give them their gifts… there were times when I couldn’t wait for a couple of days to keep the surprise. By the way…ek din ye aadat mujhe le doobi thi 😛

5) News Papers/Channels – Its been over 4 months that I haven’t read New paper or have watched News on TV. Delhi Times once in 2 weeks could be an exception to see movie schedules or Hot Hunks… but that’s it. Depression takes over if I read News paper or see News on TV. They somehow seem to concentrate only on the dark side of everything…bringing out problems is good but what’s going right should also be highlighted… and this is very rare.

6) People always wonder what am I doing here? – “Tu yahan kya kar rahi hai??” is something that I have been hearing since the day I showcased my talent to people in office or friends in general. Ek poet ki sabse badi beemari ye hoti hai k kuchh likhne k baad they feel restless jab tak wo lines kisi ko suna na de… this use to happen to me a lot… maine bohot logo ko pakaya hai apni poems suna suna k. ye shayad unki (bad)duyaain hi hain that I cant think of anything these days… surprisingly there were many people who loved my poems, there were few who asked me to write for them too… you know.. girl/boy friend ko dene k liye senti poems… there were many who told me that they would be the first one to buy the book if someday I think of getting them published :mrgreen: … then when few of my friends and colleagues came to know that I sketch too…I heard The Question again. I gifted my first sketch to my very old school friend on the occasion of her marriage… the pretty framed sketch is adorning the wall of her house and few days back she told me that whenever her hubby look at that sketch he asks her “what is she doing in office??” …and there are 2 people in particular who wonder why I don’t start up writing a book 😛 … well, a lot to be done before that..

7) Now something about guys 😀 – I usually have 4-5 crushes at one point of time (yeah…I am still stuck at that phase of life!!!).. and when one crush continues for more than a month it becomes liking and when this liking grows month on month till next 6 months it becomes Loue…and yeah …. This is not based on the condition that I should be ‘in-conversation’ with the person…but haan there should be an urge to start one and as per the stats I must have fallen in Loue 1000 times by now….naaahh… I am not exaggerating. But the thing is… so far in this New Year…no one has reached the level of being called my crush, though my eyes do turn towards some faces around but then that’s itt… I just feel that they are nice to look at…

And yeah… Married and engaged guys are out of my list right from day one… and I do like Bald guys too… my Mom wonders why? And I tell her that you get a wide area to plant a Kiss 😛

Oops!!! I never thought this post to be this long… this shows how much I like to talk (yet another fact) … I was referred as chalta-phirta cartoon network once 😳

Some complimentary facts for you which I don’t think needs a mention cos if you have been on this page ever you would have figured it out… but then I want to mentioned that I am a BIG movie buff,,,, I like all the movies (conditions applied**) and last but very important…. I LOVED my Dino and I am still heads-over-heel for him…. And would always be…

Psst: I have already decided a nick name for my baby boy (kabhi toh hoga hi 😛 ) …do I need to mention that?

Edit: Forgot the most important thing….tagging further

And finally… I  would like to take this opportunity to tag the following (in alphabetical order):

Aniruddha

Atul

Chandni

Parv

Rana

Shivani

Shobhit 

and this also totals to 7 🙂
