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.

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…

Padua and Venice 2015

So the last travel post was about Turin, after which we drove all the way to Padua and after roaming around at night, eating ice cream  we came back to Tulip Inn, our hotel in Padua. After the complimentary breakfast, we set out to visit San Antonio's shrine, the shrine where the tomb of St. Antony is located. We celebrated mass in an adjoining chapel there,  We weren't allowed to take pictures in the main shrine, but I surreptitiously managed to take this one. After walking around and praying in this huge church, we then went to the shrine shop. Among all the places we visited, the stuff I've seen at the Padua shrine shop, is really good. One of the best places to shop for souvenirs, everything is so pretty and well made. I had visited Padua in 2013 with Antonio and Nameeta, and Antonio picked up a really cool looking black ring with the Our Father inscribed on it in Latin...
He rarely wears it, so I started wearing it...
Picked up this cream and chapstick at the Padua …
