Random Humour
Three men walked into a bar……



*eyes* Okay, you must admit you fell off your chair laughing. You did. You know you did.

Okay, and also “You are not only genius, you are INDIgenous” :D:D This,ofcourse, comes from DDLJ. Which I saw for the first time this saturday. On Emiko’s insistence. Emiko has an SRK wallpaper on her desktop. And while I haven’t yet fallen that deep, I must admit I am newly addicted to Bollywood and Shahrukh Khan πŸ˜€

Random Book

Sorting Out Billy. Must I explain?
Random Boredom

Writing Scream for me Bangalore!! on every write-able surface, and then scratching it out to replace Bangalore with Bombay. But that isn’t exactly boredom…

Boredom would be writing ‘Friday’ on all my notes today, then regretfully scratching it out to replace it with ‘Monday’. But that was a genuine mistake(or wishful thinking).

Random boredom-tripping in my head I guess. Checking the net 10 times each day just for the heck of it.

Random Worries

All my teeth falling out before their time.

All my hair falling out before their time.Actually, ANY time.

Yes, it’s all physical. I’m fickle.

Random Memories

Making up whoppers about dramatically falling on a crow that was lying with it’s beak up in the air, and having the beak pierce my stomach. I don’t remember if I needed hospitalisation and/or medical attention. Not, I suspect…

Random Realizations
I’m selfish.

I like my time alone.

I eat. A lot.

I spend a lot of money on food.

I use ‘I’ a lot.

My social skills wold make most people weep.

I like randomness.

I’m not as ‘growed up’ as I think or wish.

Oh, and I tag everybody on my blogroll. I mean it!

1. Pick out a scar you have, and explain how you got it

Scar, hm. I guess I pick the one on my arm; its become a part of me. An ‘identifier’ of sorts. How did it come about? Nasty nurse who scratched out an injection reaction from poor baby me. I have no memory of it (poor BABY me, as I say… πŸ™‚ ) but I kinda like it πŸ˜€


2. What is on the walls in your room?

Orange paint! A cloth covered black board which has some Maiden pics stuck on it. That and 2 hand-drawn Eddies. Hehe. Actually, the walls dont have much. The cupboards and doors have all my Maiden stuff and doodles.

3. What does your phone look like.

Its navy blue and white. When I bought it last year (after my old faithfull 1100 gave way… 😦 ) I thought I’d change the body…get something orange, but it grew on me. Oh, its another Nokia. I can only chance Nokias…I drop(er, maybe thats too gentle a word) my cell a couple of hundred times a week. I don’t know the model number, but its the base model. I’m partial to base models…atleast until a really cheap 5.1 MP camera phone with lots of features comes into the market πŸ˜€

While we’re on the topic of phones…I sleep with mine πŸ™‚ Its my alarm clock of choice. I’m not much of a phone person otherwise. I sms a lot (when I’m sure the bills okay), but its mostly STD.

4. What music do you listen to?

HAHA. πŸ™‚ MAIDEN! lol. Maiden, and some of the other NWOBHM products. Some classic rock. Classic Metal. Parikrama. Sometimes pure instrumentals. But Maiden’s my primary poison \m/ πŸ˜€

5. What is your current desktop picture?

One I clicked in college when I was bored and waiting for Grad day to begin. The potted plants in front of the common room. I love the green it looks in pics.

6. What do you want more than anything right now?


I want to not feel sleepy, I want the exams to be over, I want to know (for sure) what I’ll be doing after 3rd year, I want to know where I’ll be in 6 months, I want to see E again, I want my room to magically clean itself up, I want to buy some music, I want to read some books, I want to have a nonsensical conversation, I want to trip in my head, I want to make chocolate cake, I want to make a sundae and I will go on and on unless I stop now. So I stop, lol.

7. Do you believe in gay marriage?

I’m still in the process of believing in marriage.

8. What time were you born?

Hm…either night or afternoon. I keep forgetting…

9. Are your parents still together?


10. What are you listening to?

Voices in my head πŸ™‚

11. Do you get scared of the dark?
Fear…of..the dark. Muhahaha. Aah, 17th March, come again 😦

And no, I don’t. Generally. The dark is peaceful.

12. The last person to make you cry?

Myself, I guess.

13. What is your favourite perfume/cologne?

I don’t have one. perfumes really irritate my nostrils these days.

14. What kind of hair/eye colour do you like on the opposite sex?
Hair- enough of it

Colour- natural.
On any sex, actually πŸ™‚

15. Do you like pain killers?

I abhor medication. But Painkiller…must give it a listen.

16. Are you too shy to ask someone out?

Probably not. Or maybe yes. I’ll know when it happens.

17. Fave pizza topping?

The right amount of cheese and veggies. For some reason, I(a hardcore carnivore in the worst of times) don’t like non-veg pizzas that much.

18. If you could eat anything right now, what would it be?

My words? No, hehe. My words will stay uneaten.

Nothing, really. I have the Exam Stomach at the moment. (Though I did eat a me-made sundae last night. I could do with another one, probably :p)

19. Who was the last person you made mad?
I don’t remember. Oh yeah, me.

20. Is anyone in love with you?


I further tag R-E-D, the blue lullaby πŸ™‚ , Haz, Pallavi and Nishant.

5 things you don’t know about me January 9, 2007

Posted by K in Blog equivalent of forwards, Life.

Hm, 5 things you don’t know about me. Diana had tagged me ages ago, so sorry for the late one.(This is always depending on who ‘you’ is, but should be okay for generalising too)

  1. .My one and only objective in life is to be happy. When things try to mess with my happiness, I rearrange furniture until I’m back to happiness. That is not to say that I’m never unhappy, but that its my only goal in life.
  2. I fancy men in Uniform. Giggle.
  3. One of my everlasting regrets is that none of my school uniforms(and I’ve had a fair few, having been in 3 schools) ever had a tie. I love ties. Sniffle.
  4. I dig trees. Dig as in the slang dig and not literally ‘dig’ dig. I can stare at trees 24/7 and not get bored. Trees are the best looking things on earth. I think I’m a tree at heart.
  5. I admire to the point of idolisation(but not idol worship idolisation) Ganguly(Indian Cricket team) and Steve Harris(Bassist and founder member of Iron Maiden). For their toughness, and solidness and…oh wait. 5 things you don’t know about me it was supposed to be. *grin*

Ok, now I tag Pallavi, Jessica, Aishwarya, Haz, and glandheim. And whoever else would like to do this πŸ™‚ (I don’t know how to send tags. The post can suffice as a notice while I go discover the trick)

edit: trick remains undiscovered. Help shall be gratefully accepted :p
