I didn’t realize how the evening went by
I signed up with another organisation, hoping for a foreign internship opportunity, knowing that I won’t get any
I went to dinner, wanting to pee very badly
I didn’t realise that I’d fill up a Tag the next day that would ask me 8 events that happened on that particular day, and until drafting point 8, I  wouldn’t realise that each of the preceeding 7 were exclusively about me… So pathetic!

Landing a job, if that happens
Back in Delhi, whenever and for however long that happens

At the end of the day, it’s all about what’s right and what’s wrong.
It never works out as you imagined it
One should trust less

30 Nosey Things you may(n’t) want to know about me…

5 Jun

This once again goes to prove that I blab a lot. Simple questions. Not-so-simple answers.

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought? Hmm… density seems ok.


2. How much cash do you have in your wallet right now? Rs. 1150 (and no Credit Card!). God Bless ATMs!


3. What’s a word that rhymes with DOOR? Bore. I am… (Bored)


4. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone? Maa… Sigh! So predictable!


5. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone? Mar Jawan. It starts really nicely (Piano piece!) And some James Blunt tracks!

6. What are you wearing right now? Checked Jockey Boxers…

and denims and an army green T-shirt.

7. Do you label yourself? Yep. A rebel. A Drama Qu.. King.


8. Name the brand of the shoes you’re currently own? Puma. I choose not to be part of Mass Hysteria and fads, but the sister forced them on me. I also wear Woodlands sometimes, though. And nice Leather Dress Boots (unbranded, from South Ex). And Reeboks to the gym.


9. Bright or Dark Room? Oh, Dark… any given day! Romantic. Eerie. Sublime. Divine.


10. What do you think about the person who took this survey before you? Chandu? One lucky bitch. But a bit of a nut. Pakka Delhi-ite, without being a born Delhi-ite.


11. What does your watch look like? Metallic. Casio. Maa picked up from Dubai.


12. What were you doing at midnight last night? Consuming a third kind of Alchohol from my cousin’s glass. First Bacardi, then Whiskey and then some Breezer. And this was at an Uncle’s place! I’m going to be reminded constantly of that evening, for the years to come. And I wasn’t even high!


13. What did your last text message you received on your cell say? “Hey, I’m glad we met. We should do this more often. Hope you weren’t late for lunch.”
No, it wasn’t a date!
But yes, I met someone new.


14. What’s a word that you say a lot? Phuck. Except that the Ph is an F. Oh, and it’s mostly preceeded by a “What the…”
That, and “Shut up”. Picked that up from the sister.


15. Who told you he/she loved you last?(please exclude spouse , family, children) Sigh! Either Tanuja or Hagatha or Alika. All girls. Hmph!


16. Last furry thing you touched? My cousin’s (though I’d rather call him a nephew, because he’s younger than all my nephews, but that’d mean my uncle was my cousin!) stuffed toys. Dogs, Bears, an Elephant. And the last living furry thing would probably be… my cousin’s dog I guess. I like dogs 🙂


17. Favourite age you have been so far? 21. It’s been a good few months. Otherwise, eighteen I guess. Or maybe when I was one. Because I remember so little, it’s better than all the other ages that I didn’t like so much between then and when I turned Eighteen.


18. What was the last thing you said to someone? Umm… I talk far too much to be able to remember that. The last significant thing I said must’ve been “Hell no, I won’t have any fries.” But I still had some 😛


19.The last song you listened to? “Jugni” from Oye Lucky Lucky Oye. Not out of choice. Otherwise, “Volare” by Gypsy Kings on my Pod.


20. Where did you live in 1987? I didn’t. Was yet to be born. Though if I’m a reincarnation, then I was probably in London. Though probably at least a 100 years old, because I’m sure my former self lived through at least some of the Colonization. And I was probably part of it, which would explain my being gay in this lifetime. (Ouch. I know. But hey, it’s not easy!)


21. Are you jealous of anyone? Yep, of all people abroad, committed, with straight hair, with hair, with loads of cash, with successful careers that they enjoy, with rich and handsome husbands and so on and so forth.


22. Is anyone jealous of you? I hope so. I hope everyone’s jealous of me. But I know everyone isn’t. I hope at least a few are.


23. Name three things that you have on you at all times? Phone, wallet, iPod.


24. What’s your favourite town/city? Paris, London, NY, SF… and I haven’t been to any of them!


25. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper and mailed it? I don’t recall at all. Don’t know if I ever did, acutally. I’ve been on a computer before I knew what “gay” means. And before I knew what “pontificate” means. Except that I still don’t know what “pontificate” means.


26. Can you change the oil on a car? Can anyone change the oil on a car??


27. Your first love/big crush: what is the last thing you heard about him/her? Was a girl! (I know. Third standard. Phase of denial. Or lack of awareness of sexual diversity.) Haven’t heard anything about her, except that she was allegedly a childhood bestfriend’s former bestfriend. Except that I bet that’s what he thinks, and she probably didn’t like him at all. I know, I’m a bit of a bitch. But I’m still better than Britney Spears.


Okay, I didn’t mean that. I don’t really dislike Britney. Have no opinion of her, actually.


28. Does anything hurt on your body right now? Nope. Thank god for that. My feet were aching a lot last night, though. What a silly question. What were you hoping to hear anyway??


29.What is your current desktop picture? Silhouette of a tree with a cloudy background, and the sun playing hide and seek with the clouds. Took it on a lovely evening, in college. With my crappy Phone Cam. Came out amazing though!


30. Have you been burnt by love? Umm… I guess not. And that I’ve answered this question as I have goes to prove that I CAN avoid exaggeration. Ha!


Everyone’s who reads this is tagged. Except Chandni. I don’t like her anymore. She knows my name and she won’t tell me how!

Tag : 5 Addictions

13 Oct

Just when I was feeling saturated with nothing to blog about, along came DK with a tag.

So what’s on the cards? 5 addictions, they say!

Before you read further, be warned. You may begin to dislike me a little by the end of this. Then again, you may (hopefully) not! Well, here goes nothing…

1. Internet Sl*t – King of all obsessions. I don’t know how I manage to spend so many hours. Ranging from reading blogs to Wikipedia-ing random subjects, following up with the news or looking up new exercises and hostel recipes that I simply would never try out! I suppose certain other on-line occupations can be left out of this post *hic*. Gimme a laptop with reasonably fast internet and a substantial amount of privacy and I’m as good as non-existent!

2. All Things New and Shiny – One of my worst qualities, since it costs money. Whether it’s the latest edition of “Health” magazine, or a ready-to-eat item, a text-book that will never be opened or a shiney new musical instrument, a new pet or a new house! And I’m obsessed off-late with clothes, shoes, accessories and the works. Love new gadgets! Anything new captures my imagination, which unfortunately comes with an expiry date lesser than that of fresh flowers. Mom’s lectured me on this shortcoming of my character numerous times, and I must say that I have learned from it! Yesterday, I walked into Big Bazaar with three thousands in my pocket and walked out having spent a little around Rs. 150. Hagatha was shocked to the bones!

3. The Attention Wh*re – It’s a dicey thing, attention. One loves it often, and wishes it away on other occasions. Frankly, I adore attention, but as soon as I get it, I begin blushing 4 shades of red, and wish it would stop that instant! Of course, all attention must be complementary! And the more it concentrates on appearances (“You’ve lost so much weight!”, “You have an amazing smile” to name a few :P) the better. Of course, compliments on my work are as welcome. So are compliments on any other matter, really!

4. Taking off (into the sunset… or something) – An obsession for flying dates back to before I was born, I think. I cannot recall a single moment when I wasn’t fascinated. I absolutely adore take-offs! I’m frequently the first person to check into a flight, and since air-travel increased manifold for me since I started college (and got my laptop), I can be frequently found leeching airprort WiFi bandwidth a few times a year. I’m one of the few individuals who was worst hit by rise in turbine fuels. No, really!

5. Laughing Duck – Laughter; the best medicine. Though if I were given the right to do so, I would rephrase that to “Laughter, the best Intoxicant”.

I absolutely adore laughter and merriment, as long as I can be a part of it (Yes. Selfish!) Whether it comes from comical situations, SitComs or going on a drinking binge till one just cannot help laughing pointlessly. I cannot help but smile when someone is trying to make me. There’s no better way to alleviate me from a bad spree! Laughter is joy, charity and forgiveness. If there were more laughter in the world, there would be no problems of any kind!

Now it’s time to spread the disease.

1. Sammy, because he’s going to love answering this!

2. Jack, though I have a horrid feeling he won’t acquiesce to this request!

3. Kris, who should presently be hovering in my home-city!

4. TheLineofBeauty, becase I await his response to this Tag more than anyone else’s!

5. Mr. Just-Hooking-Up because his posts on the American Economy fail to capture my imagination 😛

Tag, you’re it!
