The Tag.....

Anju had tagged me a long time back and I had forgotten about it until she tagged a few other people for the same thing recently(and I will never forgive her for tagging sajeeve! My poor mind was tortured reading his list regarding the amount of time pigs and lions take, being entangled in the throes of passion...)

Anyway, getting back to my list...

*If I walk into any room and I find the bed messy, my mind stops functioning. I just HAVE to clear the bed, make it neat and then get on with whatever I am supposed to be doing.

*Weird colour combinations make me so mad... if peope wear clothes that do not match or if the church altar is decorated in vividly loud colours that do not match... it again stops my mind from functioning. I cannot focus.... unless I will my mind to tune out and go to another place where everything is in harmony.

*I actually rock myself slowly to sleep.

*If you have seen curly haired babies/kids, you will know that they look amazingly beautiful (just like in the picture above)... always wanted a kid like that, seeing that nobody in this family has curly hair, I guess I'll just have to follow the stars and adopt one.

*I HATED the Godfather book and the Pretty Woman movie.

*People are almost always surprised seeing my palms.... cause I have got more palmar creases than the normal human.

*I like the dance of the dust particles in angel rays... It's the only dust that doesn't get to me.

*I do not like the way technology has messed up the english language with its infuriating short forms.... (I wanted to give a few examples, but I can't do it.... I can't write like that and not feel anything)

*Very rarely will you see me using a blue pen, I somehow don't like them. I carry a black pen with me.

*I was in love with Prince Eric for a very long time, until Prince Arutha of Crydee (from the Riftwar saga by Raymond E.Feist) came along, now I have this kind of deep reverential wonderful feeling for Sherlock Holmes... he's beyond comparison.

Let me give a example here kavitha,

4 - what does it mean, Hope that is nothing but the word FOR.

Some messed language is there in your personal ID. Please correct the short form.
Tonio, well noted. Well, in this case, it is perfectly acceptable, since its an e-mail id and email ids should actually be short... the same goes for SMS's, there its okay to use short forms, it is tiring to type out whole sentences using your thumbs. But while chatting and mailing and blogging and anywhere else, these short forms are infuriating...
saj, nobody goes around curling baby's hair...
Gitu, ask them if I can adopt one...
appletini said…
That is so funny... you can't satnd a messy bed?
Megha said…
so, whats the deal with tagged? every person who is tagged needs to make a list bout what bugs them??

tonio, i like the way your mind functions :D
Appletini, I can't stand mess, dirt, untidiness... it gets to me.

Megh's, you have to write ten random things about yourself.
Clover said…
and i have more palm creases than normal people..i've never met anyone who has more than me.we should compare next time i see you..
Twisted DNA said…
Messy beds make you mad eh? You probably souldn't be visiting our place then :) The bed is ALWAYS messy. Both kid's and ours.

Well, in fact, you shouldn't be meeting me even. Because when I get dressed every morning, I pick a random pants and a random shirt. So the chance of color combinations matching is pretty much non-existent.

Nice to see you post. It's been a while since I heard from you.

Throes of passion and messy beds usually go together...
The Mahathma said…
messy beds are due to throes of passion
Jude and Saj, how profound...
PurpleHeart said…
Rocking yourself slowly to sleep? Tat's sweet !!
Anju said…
well, it's about time.
* seems like your brain could stop functioning at the smallest things. You'd die in my room because I won't let you straighten the bed.
* I hated the pretty woman movie too
* Although I hate shorthand with a passion, I liked Antonio's point. He's right.
ScRiBbLeR said…
I hate messy beds too .. & I also love curly hair :)
TDNA, its okay, I grew up with two boys, my tolerance levels are pretty high.

Sandhya, that's why I like travelling by trains, they lull you to sleep.

Anju, its a good thing you did not read the godfather book.

Scribbler, yeah they have a charm of their own, though they are difficult to manage.

Santhi Nilayam, School for the Mentally Challenged...

After a long long time, I visited the special school I used to work in, and the kids have all grown up...tiny tots now taller than me and sprouting facial hair!!! I was flummoxed... gosh, time changes everyone and everything. Wonder what changes they saw in me... anyway, I was just happy to be backthere. Went early to catch sight of that yellow school bus turning the corner and to watch all the kids tumbling out. While I was working there, that yellow bus turning the corner always marked the start of an exciting day. Right from the moment the kids hit the ground, the fun starts... that place will always be shrouded in hues of warm sunshine in my memory, it is a great place to be.  On the way to school, came across a few students... The special school, Santhi Nilayam (means Abode of Peace)  Great place...  The school bus and the kids... The assembly itself is heartwarming, a kid recites the prayers and the others repeat after him, in their characteristic sounds and half utterances.  T…

The Ten Commandments of Christmas

Last Sunday in church, leaflets with the following 'Christmas Ten Commandments' were handed out and the parish priest Fr. Joe Andrews discussed them with the congregation.   You shall not leave 'Christ' out of Christmas, making it 'Xmas'. Christ is the reason for the season.You shall prepare your soul for Christmas. Spend not so much on gifts that your soul is forgotten (a good confession is a nice way to prepare your hear for Christmas)You shall not let Santa Claus replace Christ, thus robbing the day of its spiritual reality. (Prepare yourself with prayer and the Word of God.)You shall not neglect your church. Its services highlight the true meaning of the season. You shall not neglect the needy. Share they blessings with the many who will go hungry and cold unless you are generous.You shall not neglect thy family during this season. You shall not forget the elderly and those who are lonely at Christmas time.You shall not value gifts received by their cost. E…

Grandma's Caramel Cake...

Everybody in my family loves this cake, its my grandmother's recipe and it can be tweaked during the holiday season to form a delicious Christmas fruit cake. The ingredients are simple to remember, you just need equal  quantities of flour, sugar and butter and the cake is guaranteed to come out great. Ingredients 400 grams maida or all purpose flour
400 grams sugar
400 grams butter
8 eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
dried fruits and nuts 
brandy or rum (optional)
I've taken 400 grams of butter, sugar and flour cause I wanted to make a large cake for Christmas. You can scale the quantities down to half and make a medium sized cake. Let's start with caramelizing the sugar, from the 400 grams of sugar that you have set aside for this cake, take bout a quarter of that (100 grams) and start heating it in a dry vessel. I usually drop in another handful (bout 50 gms) of sugar to get more of the gooey caramel when I plan on adding b…
