General ramblings

Another Tag!

Nova has tagged me to do this meme and I think I’m the first person to respond to it, even though she didn’t expect me to 😉 Let me add Suda’s name too. He’s also tagged me for the same meme!

1. Last movie you saw in a theater?

Errmm…do I need to answer this one? I’m embarrassed to admit that it’s Tashan. But in my defense, I walked out of the theater during the interval.

2. What book are you reading?

Age of Iron by JM Coetzee. Also reading the CFAI Text books- thanks to my exam in the first week of June.

3. Favorite board game?

I like Monopoly, Pictionary and Scrabble. Haven’t played Monopoly and Pictionary since a long long time. Last played Scrabble on New Year’s Eve.

4. Favorite magazine?

Business Week and Fortune Magazine.

5. Favorite smells?

Elizabeth Arden’s Splendor, Davidoff’s Echo and Hugo Boss’s Deep Red.

6. Favorite sounds?

My heart beating. I don’t know how it will feel when I’ll realize that it’s going to leave me. I also like the background noise of the AC fan whirring.

7. Worst feeling in the world?

When you know that things have changed for the worse, even though you don’t want them do.

8. What is the first thing you think of when you wake up?

My inbox 😀

9. Favorite fast food place?

Taco Bell and Jack in the Box.

10. Future child’s name?

Babloo and Pinky! As if! Dumb question.

11. Finish this statement. “If I had lot of money I’d….?

Donate some to some charities, take some long vacations, buy big houses…have lots of dogs…and lie at home all day, reading books and watching movies.

12. Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?

I want to type something else here, but I’ll refrain myself. Don’t want to be labeled as a pervert. For the record, I don’t sleep with stuffed animals.

13. Storms – cool or scary?

Cool if it’s at night and I’m sleeping. Scary if I’m wide awake.

14. Favorite drink?

Banana shake and Orange Juice.

15. Finish this statement, “If I had the time I would….”?

Actually, I have time for everything I like doing. We’ll live only once…why not spend time doing things you enjoy doing? So I don’t believe in “If I had the time I would…” Make time if you don’t have any time.

16. Do you eat the stems on broccoli?
Oh yes! I love Broccoli. 🙂

17. If you could dye your hair any color, what would be your choice?

I wouldn’t dye my hair again. I have abused them enough. Thankfully, they’re still very soft and healthy. I had some brownish and dirty blonde streaks when I was in college.

18. Name all the different cities/towns you’ve lived in?

Quite a boring list actually- Calcutta, Pune, Bombay, Bangalore, Springfield, MO and currently, St. Louis, MO.

19. Favorite sports to watch?

I hardly watch TV.

20. One nice thing about the person who sent this to you?

Nova-She sees pretty things through her eyes!

Suda- He’s a very soft spoken and jovial fellow. Besides, I’m his favorite blogger. 😉 So he can’t be bad at all.

21. What’s under your bed?

Nothing! I don’t have a bed now. Still in the process of buying a mattress. I don’t enjoy shopping for such stuff. So I don’t make any time for it.

22. Would you like to be born as yourself again?
Sure…why not? I’m very smart and intelligent. Heh.

23. Morning person, or night owl?
Night owl. But I’ll have to change that in the next couple of days.

24. Over easy, or sunny side up?

Both…depends really. I’m a very serious and cranky type of person. 😛

25. Favorite place to relax?
The restroom.

26. Favorite pie?
I hate pies. But if I were to pick one, then it would have to be banana pie.

27. Favorite ice cream flavor?
Banana Split from Cold Stone or Baskin Robbins.

28. Of all the people you tagged this to, who’s most likely to respond first?

I don’t know…really. Maybe Ashish? Maybe Dinsan?

Okay, let me tag- Amit, Anand, Ashish, Balu, Dinsan, and Shefaly. Any one who wants to take it up is free to do it too! 🙂

  1. Nice peep into your personality…but banana? Well! 🙂 This was a surprise!
    I got to do mine too… I think I better do it fast or I will have no one to tag!

  2. Tch tch, you left the theater during the interval? Uske baad hi toh movie sahi thi! 😛 Bleh, you know I’m kidding. I would’ve left the theater too, a lot of people did but then again I’d spent 120 bucks on it and I won’t waste them for anything. I even watched the credits. 😀

    You need to come to my house once btw and sleep in my room. When the AC fan whirs, nothing else is audible. It’s a really old AC..was the first AC in the house. Then mom and dad removed it from their room and got a new AC for themselves. Just like I got mum’s old scooter and she got a new one for herself. Just like she’s reading the first hand version of the Alchemist and I’m reading the second hand version of A Thousand Splendid Suns. No fair! 😐

    And Babloo and Pinky bekaar naam hain. You have to name them Bunty and Babli! But thoda confusion ho jayega. Maybe you can have a boy named Bunty and have a girlfriend named Babli for him and then you can have a daughter named Babli and have a boyfriend named Bunty for him. Or better still, marry them off to each other. Shaadi ke time paisa waise bhi bachega. 😛

    I hate Banana Shake. And I hate Real’s orange juice. I actually hate all packaged orange juices. I prefer Mango or Litchi. But roadside orange juice is pretty cool. I need orange juice now. Kya yaar. 😐

  3. I also like the background noise of the AC fan whirring.

    80 😆

    I have better names than ish, 💡 call them chintu – pintu OR chinki Pinki OR chintu chinki OR pintu pinki OR chintu pinki OR pintu chinki husshshshsh :mrgreen:

    Or better way call them suda and ish (we don’t mind our names being used, yeah ish?)

  4. lallopallo says:

    Hmm.. What? You watched a Hindi movie in the ruhi you ??? 😛
    So, you think you are smart & intelligent?

  5. @Nita- Funny I know…but I love bananas. I can eat anything that has banana as an ingredient. 🙂 I can eat as many as six at one go.

    @Patrick- Hey! Long time. Haven’t seen you around much. Yes, I moved here around 2 months back. I’m doing fine. How are you?

    @Ish- Yes, even though the ticket was for $10, and technically I had watched only half the movie (worth not even a penny), I decided to walk out. I don’t know what I was thinking when I booked the tickets online. Very very uncharacteristic of me. 😦 I swear I won’t watch another Hindi movie in the theater. And the funny thing is that everybody seemed to be enjoying it and laughing out loud!

    Re: AC- this is a familiar story. My parents got a new one in their room and shifted the old one to my room back home. Heh. But I didn’t really complain. Better than not having an AC. 😉

    Re: Cars/Bikes- I have a cooler car compared to my parents now. Hehe. I think you should rebel! Yeah! You are the only kid after all.

    Actually, I did think about Bunty and Babli. Then I wrote Babloo and Pinky because SRK mentions this name in some movie. I know you are going to love me for this now. 😉

    I hate Real too. We hardly ever get fresh juices here and if we do get them, then they are way too costly. But the bottled juices are quite good here. Recently, I drank Mazaa and Rasna Mango Juice after buying it from an Indian store. Felt so heavenly! 🙂

    @Anshul – *shoosh* 😛

    @Suda- I will probably not go into that line, because I am not having any kids for at least a decade anyway! 😛 After that, I’ll consult both of you. But I think adoption is a better idea. There are too many homeless kids already. Why give birth to another one and increase the population, no?

    @Shefaly- Surprise surprise! I didn’t include your name because I wasn’t really sure if you would take it up. 🙂 But thank you. Missed expectations, actually.

    @Nova- No problem. 🙂 Thanks for tagging me.

    @Lallo- Oh God! Please spare me. I knew that you would laugh at that. 😦 I don’t know what made me book the tickets…that too in advance. All that Kareena hype got into me, I guess. But I promise, never ever again. And yes, I’m smart and intelligent. And funny too. You better not have any doubts. :mrgreen:

  6. Anand- Tom and Jerry? Hehe..funnily, Jerry was the name of one of my professors back in B-school. 😛

    Balu- I had no energy left to write anything about the movie! I already wasted an hour watching it. Didn’t want to waste another hour writing about it. And thanks for the compliment on the theme. 😉

    Yaake- Well, you didn’t tag me, but Nova did. 🙂 So, I had to do it.

    Lallo- lol?

    Ash- Thenks 😛

  7. How did I missed commenting on this one. 😦
    Ok, I have done the tag as instructed but I was quite late I guess.
    //Favorite sounds?
    My heart beating
    Hmmm….I find this answer quite romantic, straight out of balaji serials. 😛
    //Babloo and Pinky??? *Giving the Saif look when he says “GUDIYA” in Tashan* Oh…sorry I forgot, you missed the second half. 😛
    //Favorite place to relax?
    The restroom!!!!!! Errr..Ahem. Quite unusual. 😛
    //Still in the process of buying a mattress
    I have heard that mattress is an expensive commodity there. True?

    Nice one BTY, this tag is sure getting famous now. 😀

  8. POBox- Yes. 😛 That’s why it’s called “restroom”.

    Suda- I would, but I can’t do it legally. There needs to be a 14 year gap between me and my kid 😉 (Acc. to Hindu Adoption Laws).

    Amit- That was not supposed to be romantic actually….funny that it came out that way. Saif calls her Gudiya? 😐 My mom calls me Gudiya. Another reason to dislike Kareena now. And yes, mattresses are quite expensive…$200+ can cost up to $1000-1500. Depends upon what you want and stuff.

    Balu- Too many people hated that white theme. 😛 I won’t go back to it again. Promise!

    Yaake- Great 😀 Saw that. Will do it soon. Thanks for tagging me.
