Randommmm...

Ha! This couldn't get better. To write random things about yourself. I liked the idea. Alright, let's get to the rules first as usual. Here they are:
  • Link to the person who tagged you
  • Post the rules to your blog
  • Write 4 random things about yourself.
  • Tag 2-5 people at the end of your post and link to them
  • Let each person you have tagged know by leaving a comment on their blog.
  • Let the tagger know when your entry is posted.

Thanks to Praveen who tagged me. So here you go, you asked for it :D

Randomness ranking 1: Am a sunny person. I dont like the rains and cold climate... gimme sun and more sun, ill be purring like a cat. Oh that makes me a proper leo for that matter. They say leos fall into the cat family tendency. No wonder! I guess its probably cos the rains in chennai really makes me sick. As in i hate the slush in roads, the dampness the weather carries, wet wet wet everywhere, moody and lazy climate, and of cos getting wet. Ewwwk. Had i experienced some classy rain (the US-UK type where the roads are clean n suff)... maybe, maybe i might have second thoughts. :D

Randomness ranking 2: I'm quite short tempered. Yeah, very short tempered rather. I lose my cool at the silliest of things if they tend to piss me off. How boring... i know! That causes half the troubles i carry on my shoulders. :D

Randomness ranking 3: I love watches. I like to collect as many watches as possible [if only i had so much money :(] I pick up from the local market that you get for few a hundreds or those that are really nice and classy that run to thousands :D

Randomness ranking 4: I like to observe people and study them. I get that quite naturally whether or not am moving with them on close counters. But the good thing is i dont judge anyone unless i really get to know them well. Well, phew i got atleast the last one good :D

So there you go. You learnt something about me today, quite randomly. Happy tagging along :)

And the people am tagging are:
sansmerci
multimenon
obscurityspeaks
wistfully yours - where the hell is she???

A birthday, a funeral and a boring week

It’s been a boring week and I hate to say that I still have nothing to write about. That explains why my resolution went weak last week! Yeah maybe a coupla bomb blasts that rocked Delhi and Islamabad caught everyone’s attention. And for the fact that Chennai could be the next target. What a sad state and how depressing. If only human lives were valued. There really is no point in venting out our frustrations. Is it even heard???? Whatever!!

Other than that, last week elvis’ bday went great. He was thrilled about oil-painting set I gifted him. Really looking forward to see more of his paintings. We stayed home all day and relaxed at barista post dinner. Played a pathetically looking scrabble there while sipping on some iced tea and headed back home by 12. Back home, we picked up a crossword of world currencies. Four time-based rounds and I managed to score high in two. But yeah, he got most of it though. And so our day ended at about 2.30 after having gained some gyan. I wish I had more time to spend on such crosswords and puzzles. :( I just love them and it really teases my brain.

Sunday was sad. Absolutely no activity. A bit of cleaning. Sleep. TV. That’s about it. So duh! Dinner at Raji’s place got cancelled. Elvis had to attend a funeral and came home only yesterday.

Work at office is getting better… rather the result of my efforts look green. The long-awaited book escapEdition is finally out in print. Phew! What a long wait it was. The cover looks neat. Lucky that we escaped without being tossed around for the delay. Looking forward to blogger’s feedback. Let’s see!

And yes, the next book is gonna be THE one. The blogger has been really sweet and patient. He even promised me ice creams :) Well at present that should do I suppose.

That reminds me of the food craving I’m having lately - drooling over anything that looks edible. Sunday lunch was kickass. Chicken biryani, fish fry and prawn fry. Yummmmmm!! But for a change I’m craving for a veggie fare of late. Yummy sambars, veggies, salads, rasam, kaara kozhambu, kaalan, avial, pickles… damn! I hate this craving. It’s gotta be real soon. Anyway its lunch time now so am off for some belly-filling ceremony :D

'Brilliant Blog' - And the award goes to...

This girl sansmerci just won’t keep quiet. Tags me along wherever she goes and that’s the best part of her. She has taken me along through some of the most beautiful paths and this sure is one of it. C’mon what more can a lazy blogger like me who blogs like once in a blue moon expect, a brilliant weblog award??? Naa… she must be kidding. But then she wasn’t. She actually DID award me with this amazing ‘Brilliant Weblog Award 2008’. She must have been drunk, I swear! Also accuses me of blogging more often in Sulekha. Now, that’s where my nerves stood up straight. Heyyyy… I hardly blog there girl. Am a more blogspot bird honey! So I decided to give it to her and took upon the challenge to post atleast one blog a week (now that’s a real challenge you know, well atleast for me :D)

Okay cutting the loooong story short, first I really need to give her full credits for bringing me into this world of ‘blogs’ when I didn’t even know what it meant or how it worked (I was a weeny dumb ass back then :D) She encouraged me and at times even spat at me for not blogging and that really worked (ahem!). I was feeling good after my first few blogs… then got the inspiration for writing poems :O from her. That was a Herculean task but it flowed smooth after a bit. It was jus getting better by the day but I can’t write as much as she does (she writes lots I tell you). But then, all said and done, she gave me this wonderful world and I really am thankful to her. So babe, this post is kind of a dedication to you and it’s an honor to reaward it back to you!

And the award (also) goes to: ME :D

There are some rules to it as well:
  • When you receive the prize you must write a post showing it, together with the name of who has given it to you, and link them back
  • Choose a minimum of 7 blogs (or even more) that you find brilliant in their content or design
  • Show their names and links and leave them a comment informing they were prized with ‘Brilliant Weblog Award'
  • Show a picture of those who awarded you and those you give the prize (optional).
  • And pass it on!

Alright, I guess I won’t be able to do much justice on the tagging part but this is the best I could. Sorry to have stopped with only 5 :(

Here they are:

Back to you blogging queen - sansmerci

For this unique poet who can really turn heads with his wonderful poems (some with multiple meanings :O) - praveen

A fairly lazy blogger (I got company here :D) who finds no time to blog on blogspot. I never knew she could write so well until I read some of her works. Hope this brings her back - obscurityspeaks

For the rambling queen who can do absolute justice to the word in her own unique, sweet and amazing manner - wistfully yours

For this fellow mallu blogger who stopped at my space and left some sweet comments, also called me a sista (sniff sniff). Oh and needless to say, his writing style is really cool. He can write just about anything (sigh, wish I could) - multimenon

Thanks again for this great feeling sansmerci and whoever started this. Really makes one wanna write more. Yes yes, i havent forgotten my challenge. I really look forward to writing more actually but first things first, it's celebration time now!! :)
