All in fours- not really! ;)

The BeadDen tagged me on this one here.

From the four Vedas to the Fab four, the four cardinal directions to four suits of playing cards, four Greek classical elements to four Evangelists….four seems to a very significant number. The only number that hasย  the same number of letters as the number itself is “Four”! …More information found on the Wiki page for the number. Interesting surely!!!!

Here goes:

4 places I go over and over:

1 Landmark (It is a shop where I can peruse books, A can get toys ….it is the other way round in priority off late ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

2 It used to be Costco/Sams like BD when I was in the US, here it is probably Big Bazaar (A loves the place as he can run around ๐Ÿ™‚ )

3 Beach

4 Any place that sells handicrafts like Khadi gramodyog bhavan, VTI, Gurjari, Cauvery and the likes…

I like shopping…at least window shopping!!

2 friends from the US who I have left behind like B, U, Laksh, A-kay

3 Chennai bloggers (& Nikhil, Kris )

2 Eden loved their bakes

3 Good old Saravana Bhavan / Sangeetha’s

4 Pizza hut / Dominoes (A’s choice ๐Ÿ™‚ )

4 places youโ€™d rather be NOW:

1 A place I can call my home and my own ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

2 In bed with a good book and no interference ๐Ÿ˜‰

3 Anywhere Iโ€™ve never been. (stolen from BD)

4 Doing something adventurous somewhere…trekking/ hiking/walking/rafting…whatever! Learning something?!? Anywhere but here?! ๐Ÿ˜€

4 TV shows I could watch over and over:

1 House MD (touch wood BD)

2 FRIENDS / MASH ….many of the sitcoms around the time of Friends. Was hooked on to Studio 60 at Sunset Boulevard)

3 NCIS /CSI (all those kind of series actually:) )

4 Yes Minister or Yes Prime Minister (love the books too!!)

Actually there are more than just 4 & they are all ancient except House MD. The others are

Fawlty Towers, Mind your Language, The Nutt House, Faerie Tale Theatre, Whose line is it anyway?, Mastermind, You asked for it, Believe it or not, Rail Sneham (tamil), Penn (Tamil) (link is about the brain behind the series), Malgudi Days,ย  shows like those on TLC…long list eh?

4 movies I could watch over and over ( I like watching movies…but not really a movie theatre goer ๐Ÿ™‚ So this list is also pretty long…in fact I am thinking of picking up another tag…let’s see. Will just list a few that pop into my head now )

Never had a crush – I know…been made fun of and have been told I have not experienced something vital in life ๐Ÿ™‚ and I totally love that person!

Got stuck in the middle of nowhere cos you ran out of gas – ended up playing games with co-passengers till the situation was fixed ๐Ÿ™‚ย  This was on the way back to Chennai from Kalahasthi

Being a Hindu…
Been to all the cosmic dance halls of Shiva…Pancha Sabha Temples: Chidambaram (gold), Maduraiย  (silver), Tirunelveli (copper), Tiruvalankadu (ruby) and Kutralamย  (lotus) are revered as the five Cosmic Dance halls of Shiva. – Almost…The Ruby one pending ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Been to all the Pancha bhoota Shiva stalas .. Tiruvannamalai, Kanchipuram, Tiruvaanaikkaval, Kalahasti and Chidambaramย  are five grand temples enshrining Shiva as a manifestation of the five elements. Almost Tiruvaanaikkaval pending ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Well I guess if I list the temples visited or to be visited…it will be an entire post ๐Ÿ™‚ I love these temples. The architecture, the history, the significance!!ย  Guess I am not that much of an atheist after all ๐Ÿ˜‰

I also suppose that this list is pretty volatile, one can add, modify or delete.

I am not tagging anyone on this. I just leave it open to anyone and everyone who wants to take this one up ๐Ÿ˜€ if they have not already done it.

Words -> pictures :)

Scorpria tagged me on this one.

The rules of the tag :

  1. What you draw is your wish. But it has to be relevant to the words given to you.
  2. You must use all the five words given to you by your tagger and draw pictures using paint or GIMP or any other photo editing tool.
  3. Each picture must be self explanatory when you relate it to the given word.
  4. Each word MUST have at least one picture attributed to it.
  5. None of these pictures should be copyrighted. By this I mean that you have to draw them yourself.
  6. After you finish the tag, which I think will take quite some time; you need to pass it on to other people with a fresh set of 5 words.

The words allotted to me : Joy, child, game, footsteps, candles

I like painting; not necessarily MS Paint. So I did the basic image on paint, used Adobe Photoshop elements to add embellishments ๐Ÿ™‚ย  like texture or shading. I also have used red, green as primary colours in the pics. Well, Christmas is round the corner ๐Ÿ˜€

So here goes :

)
Joy to the world!! ๐Ÿ™‚

A note on the above : I wanted to stop with just the first image and later was persuaded by a couple of my friends to add in the rest ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks to their feed back!

Snow man missing ๐Ÿ˜‰ or should it be some snowballs? ๐Ÿ˜€

Debated a lot (with myself of course, got a suggestions from those friends I mentioned too ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) Decided to use this to depict “game” One of my favorite games ๐Ÿ™‚

Self explanatory?! A walk in the sky…no clouds (have many hanging over anyways ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

I had lit a candle in St. Patrick’s cathedral almost every Christmas I was in NY.ย  So, Thanks Pria – I at least drew them this season ๐Ÿ˜‰

Scorpria: I hereby solemnly swear that I did all these on my own. No scanning nor copying ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, would not have copied anyways…but might have sketched/painted on paper & scanned. Way easier than struggling with the mouse ๐Ÿ˜ฆ OH…Santa: I wish I had a graphics pen ๐Ÿ™‚

Now for the most difficult part of the tag; passing it on…

Bhargavi : Tequila, dope, boyfriend,shopping, scapegoat ๐Ÿ˜‰
Imp’s mom : Imp :), sister, Mysore, puzzle, train
A-kay : Friend, vacation, dawn, cuisine, kiwi
Dinesh : Dream, Madurai , Ghagra-choli, computer & dragon (after all you were named Dragon babu right;) )
Vishesh: Light, Exam, Poetry, reflection, heaven

Edited to add:

Vishesh: Since I found out that 2 others had tagged you on this, my apologies. I did not know you were tagged. Hence you are excused from this one ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  If you still wanna take up the challenge and do it despite your exams; you are welcome ๐Ÿ™‚

Sulz : Books, Chocolate, tower, Macau , friend ๐Ÿ™‚ (Sorry for the late add Sulz…was wondering what words to give you. I almost gave you the password to your post!!! Ooopss!!! then changed it to Macau ๐Ÿ™‚ )

All those tagged…a note to you: It is fun. So, go on ahead and try it out ๐Ÿ™‚

To me: 2 down 2 to go!! (from Nautankey & The BeadDen) ๐Ÿ™‚

Expansionist…me?

Vimal tagged for this meme here. He has written he wanted more visits to that page…may be that is why this late tagging happened ๐Ÿ™‚

I like tags. I guess I learn more about myself when I do them. This one : I learnt that I am pretty much open to most things in life; but certain stuff – I do have some boundaries which I think are justifiable.

Please thoughtfully consider the following, and choose one item for each of the categories below.(Be sure to describe your reasons for choosing)
One religious work from a non-familiar tradition youโ€™ll read:
Am not a very religious person. Off late I have flashes of atheism too. Though I firmly believe in knowledge for knowledge’s sake. Besides I pretty much read anything printed!! (Stay totally away from self-help books – read a few though) So, what would I read from a non- familiar tradition? I should say that even Hinduism to a large extent is non-familiar. Though am game for any other work on whatever tradition ๐Ÿ˜€

One music videoโ€“that you likeโ€“from your โ€œleast likely to listen toโ€™ genre:
Again I am open to any form of music and I don’t watch that many music videos. I am more of a listen to music kind of person. ๐Ÿ™‚ “Least likey to listen to” genre is metal for me though.

A book from a genre you almost never read, that you have read, or you will read (promise!):
Self help books!! eeeks!! no way! Erotic stuff have never read! I would rather do nothing!!! NO!! I will not read these! ๐Ÿ˜€ so none listed!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ No expansion?! no problem ๐Ÿ˜‰

Somewhere youโ€™d never thought to go on holiday/vacation, and why it might be fun to go there?
Timbuctoo or Mongolia….Don’t know why it will be fun. Just that I always think of some place remote. Run away from the maddening crowd…Any such place would be good ๐Ÿ˜‰ May be it is just now!

A specific food youโ€™ve never tried, but will because of this meme, honest!
OMG! Food….Well, I guess I will try anything lacto-vegetarian.

 

A sport or game you really hate, or havenโ€™t tried yet, but are willing to give one more go:

I don’t hate any sport/game. Hate is a strong word!! Haven’t tried? Well, that would probably fill pages and pages. This is an expansionist meme, right? So am game for any sport/ game ๐Ÿ˜‰

A style of dance you probably wonโ€™t try (we wonโ€™t make you promise on this one):
Again boring but truthful answer…willing to try any dance as long as it is notย  characterised under perversion.

A career/ job you donโ€™t feel youโ€™re suited for, and why:
Marketing! I cannot lie to save my soul. I cannot sensationalise. I can almost never convince some one unless I myself strongly believe in that (which I know will not be the case in marketing jobs!)

An item thatโ€™s โ€œthinking out of the boxโ€™ for this meme that hadnโ€™t been included:
I have exhausted my thinking ability on responding to the previous questions. Cannot think of an answer to this one!

Ifย  thereโ€™s one thing in life you wanted to do, and will do because of this meme, what will it be?
Again, I don’t think I would actually do anything because of a meme. There are a lot of things in life I want to do though! ๐Ÿ™‚

Now for the tougher part than doing the meme itself. I am going to take the easy way out – leave it to who ever wants to take this up. One condition : Let me know so I can come check your answers ๐Ÿ˜€

Tags – 1 down 3 more to go! ๐Ÿ™‚

Quirks?!? Me?

Dinesh of 18,000 RPM tagged me.

Edit: Reema of My Random Thoughts has also tagged me for the same ๐Ÿ™‚

The tag is to list 6 quirks of mine. First off, apologies for the delay…reason?! I had to think a lot (been quite a bit out of touch with the concept of thinking too ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) and I came to the conclusion that I am as normal as anyone can get ๐Ÿ˜€ but with extreme difficulty; I ended up with a list….here goes….

#1 As Nikhil said, me thinking of what my quirks are for so long itself is quirky ( I suppose!)

#2 I am way too honest and straightforward that I refuse to cook up my resume much to some people’s chagrin. Is that my quirk or theirs?!

#3 I am patient enough to do 1000 or more pieces jigsaws, separate a mixture of toor and chenna dal (a kg each) but am way too impatient when it comes to knowing what is up in my life!

#4 When I am in charge of the household (the chores rather ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), I hate having a sink full of dirty dishes to wake up to…so always washed them up before going to bed. Talking of chores, I love washing clothes (the smell of freshly done laundry…love it) but hate folding them…quirkiness; I love pressing clothes.ย  I would rather sweep & mop the old fashioned way than plug in the vacuum cleaner.

#5 I play more with my son’s GeoTrax and Lego sets than he probably does ๐Ÿ˜€

#6 A has more quirks than I do (May be I should list his instead of mine like I put up his pics instead of mine for Vimal’s tag ๐Ÿ˜€ )

Now to tag 6 other people as required. I tag those whom I had the opportunity to meet with A last saturday ( a few absentees from the planned meet …but then we are not talking about those especially those who had really lame reasons!! )

Aaarti
Bhargavi
Nautankey
Praddy
Sharada
Vimal

Did not tag Aparna as I already have tagged her and to remind her, she is yet to do it ๐Ÿ˜‰

A & I had a wonderful time that day. Thanks a lot fellow bloggers ๐Ÿ˜€ We definitely should do that more often.

A face to a letter! ;)

Vimal has tagged me in this photo tag. It is to publish a candid and not posed photograph which was taken about 10 years ago. Vimal says “childhood snaps (a snap atleast 10 years old)” All I can do is smile at that.

Honestly, I was going to pass doing this one. One major reason, I don’t quite have pics from 10 years back. Even if I do, the only ones that were not really posed for would be those taken during dance performances. Actually, I don’t have that many pics of mine ….hazard of being the second kid (parents did not have time to take pics!! or so they say ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), growing up I did not like my pic taken cos I felt concious of my braces, eventually people did not take photos of me. ๐Ÿ˜€

So, after the long preamble…what am I going to do with this particular tag?! Thought I would put a face to the letter…so here goes…some candid childhood (hehehe) shots of A (sorry! I did not satisfy the 10 year old condition, he is not even 4 ๐Ÿ˜€ …well few years down the lane, these will be 10 years old ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

The pics range from his scan, a couple of hours after his birth to those taken about a few months back.

Now for the next set of scapegoats!! (Muahahaha … )
A-kay

Laksh well, both A-kay & Laksh are kinda my constants…:)
Indian home maker

Scorpria (have not tagged her also so far…)
Rajitha (to get her out of her blogging slump ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Picture says all? Not really! ;)

Sulz has tagged me here. I like this tag. I don’t like this tag. Why? Cos it has made me think about the answers. Why not? Cos I still don’t think I have the right answers?! Especially to some questions… ๐Ÿ™‚

Have done my best. ๐Ÿ˜€

Rules

Now the tagging of 5 people. Adhere to rules?!

Well…here goes… Aparna, Nikhil, Kris, Imp’s mom, Mitr – you are all it ๐Ÿ™‚

Whoa! Another tag!!

Ramya has tagged me here

Here are the rules for “7 Facts about me”—

(a) List these rules on your blog.

(b) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog.

(c) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

a) Done ๐Ÿ˜‰

b) 7 facts about me!!! OMG! I don’t know! Lemme try

1. I am what people can say is a perfect Libra. Take ages to decide; but once done, I stick to it.
2. I am friendly. Once I am some one’s friend, I hate losing that friendship for any reason, so I will go the extra mile to make up if there is a tiff ๐Ÿ™‚
3. I believe in love and in waiting for the person who loves you (of course and you love;) ).
4. I dread to think of a life all alone (have written quite a few entries on this one!)
5. I am a person with a temper, but I never carry grudges. Flare up and forget. I know I should mellow down, have done that a bit but a long way to go I suppose.
6. I will speak out and take a stand by anything that is right.
7.ย  Phew!! Finally…I am glad I am done and don’t need to think further? ๐Ÿ˜‰

c) Whoever thinks they wanna do this tag is welcome to pick it up. I will tell you that it took a lot out of me to get these 7 (ok…6 last one I kinda cheated! ) points; and to think it is about me. Well, been ages since I had to do things like SWOT analysis and stuff. I can probably say that there are very few people who really know me and can list these “facts” about me better. My mom, B, Laksh, Y, A, Nana, K are a few that come to my mind ๐Ÿ™‚

Aparna is the best :)

Been tagged by Aparna Gonibeed.

The rules of the tag

  1. There are no rules.
  2. Tag 6 people to do this Q&A and leave a comment on their blogs saying, โ€œAparna is the best!โ€

I have done the latter half of the second rule by using it as a title. Happy Aparna? ๐Ÿ™‚

What do you do when..

– You see a man (or woman) making a pass (trying to woo / flirt / impress) on a woman (or man) you like?

Don’t know really. Depends on whether the guy responds to the pass ๐Ÿ˜‰

– Some one you like, is not attracted to you?

What can one do in this situation? Check some one else out? ๐Ÿ™‚ Again don’t know.

– You are attracted to some one, but both of you are in two different cities?

Been there! Done that! Distance in relationship sucks big time. Run up huge phone bills; more sometimes on just arguments! Waiting to meet up. Horrible!

– You are reading a book, and your best friend wants to borrow it and canโ€™t wait for you to finish reading, โ€˜coz he/she has been looking for it for all their life?

I think it generally happens the other way round usually :D. If it did happen this way, will probably buy my friend a copy; or just finish my book real soon.

– You help plan his / her career, and then, they go on to achieve it, leaving you behind, alone..

Will be happy that person made it.

– Insert (and add) a new question(s) / statement(s)..

Aparna Gonibeed, Answer the questions! ๐Ÿ˜€

Hmm., To pass on the tag. That is tough. Well, whoever wishes to take this one up! Please link it back, so we all can read the answers ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s play tag!

have been tagged by Nikhil & Kris in this questionnaire mostly about love. Those who know me, already know the answers; those who don’t might just find it a wee bit boring I suppose. Anyhoos, here goes!

The rules of the game

RULE #1 : People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

RULE #2 :ย  Tag 6 people to do this quiz and they cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by and cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by continue this game by sending it to other people.

1. If your lover betrayed you, what will your reaction be?
Well, been there, rather am still there in a way! I was upset, angry, hurt. Tried to reason out that things should not be this awry. Went through the DABDA. Where am I now? I just want it all over with P; the legalities so my son & I can live our lives like he is living his or better?!

2. If you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?
Dream come true? hmm… will take a rain check on this.

3. Whose butt would you like to kick?
No one really. Though there were times when I so wanted to kick P. That too passes quickly.

4. What would you do with a billion dollars?
That would shut people up who bug me saying I should have a job so I don’t need to depend on P’s money, what id he does not send money for A etc.., ๐Ÿ™‚

5. Will you u fall in love with your best friend?
Simple Yes.

6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?
So being loved by someone.

7. How long do you intend to wait for someone you really love?
As long as it takes, though I would bug the person to respond quickly ๐Ÿ˜‰

8. If the person you secretly like is already attached, what would you do?
Don’t know really. I would probably just keep quiet.

9. If you like to act with someone, who will it be? your gf/bf or an actress/actor?
No thanks! No acting for me.

10. What takes you down the fastest?
Loneliness

11.How would you see yourself in ten years time?
Hate this question. Don’t know really, but have written about it here. It was another tag.

12. Whatโ€™s your fear?
To end up alone in life!

13. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
One always ends up making me smile with all his posts who sounds to be a hopeless romantic to his Jodha ๐Ÿ™‚ (lucky her;) ), hoping he kicks his cigarette butt out of his life instead of SRK’s like he mentions :). The other I am getting to know; is a rockstar (needs to take singing lessons though ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), a friend whose dreams I hope come true ๐Ÿ˜€

14. Would you rather be single and rich or married but poor?
how about married to a person who loves me and reasonably well off?

15.Whatโ€™s the first thing you do when you wake up?
Hope I get to hear from someone at least that day! and that there are no more mishaps to deal with.

16.Would you give all in a relationship?
More than all that I can give.

17. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously, who would you pick?
The one who loves me?! Absolutely no idea! The chances of this happening are just as slim as lightning striking at the same place twice?!

18. Would you forgive and forget no matter how horrible a thing the someone has done?
I would rave and rant about it. Wonder if it were my fault. Get convinced that I was the one who did something wrong…so obviously, the someone is always me in the end. I would not forget probably but would forgive. Can’t hold something against me all the time right?

19. Do you prefer being single or having a relationship?
Redundant question. Replace with original? ( again rain check on the question though the person I intend to ask the question already knows it ๐Ÿ™‚ )

20. List 6 people to tag

2. A-kay
3. Raaga

And anyone else who would like to take it up. ๐Ÿ™‚
