A meme tag (Blog marathon post 28)

Sunday stealing   had this meme going. I quite liked the interesting set of questions they had. Here are my very honest answers :-)



1. What curse word do you use the most?

 The most common  one F* * K (yeah, I do swear  but not in front of my kids :P )

2. Do you own an iPod?
  Yes. Two in fact

3. What person do you talk to on the phone the most?
 I talk to my closest friends. It would be difficult to identify one person but if I check my call log, I guess the four names that would appear most would be Suman, Cherissa (who have no online presence hence not linking them) , Mayank and Ajay.

4. Do you still remember the first person you kissed?
Of course. How can I forget :-) *Big dreamy smile*...*Censored* Shoo Shoo go away. :D

5. Do you remember where you were on 11/9/01?
 Yes. In Bangalore. My daughter was just a 4 month old baby then.

6. What was the last movie you watched?
When in Rome which has just released in the UK.

7. Has anyone ever called you lazy?
Never.  Not even as a joke :-) (Their teeth would have been knocked out had they dared :D )

8. Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep?
I have taken once or twice. But then discovered alcohol works just as well and  besides,its more fun :P

9. Has anyone told you a secret this week?
 Yes :P People tell me secrets all the time. Almost every single day, in fact. I am a good secret keeper. If someone were to murder me, I think secrets would come tumbling out, and not blood :-D

10. What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?
First thing I notice are usually the eyes. Then I'd quickly see how fit the guy is. But for me, the person has to be intellectually stimulating with a  great sense of humour but should also be sensitive (Sigh- Yeah I am so  hard to please)

11. What are you looking forward to?
Seeing my second book in stores. (It would still take a few more months)

12. Do you own any band t-shirts?
Had stolen a Metallica one from my bro many years ago. Now I own only branded t-shirts :P Not bands :P :)

13. What will you be doing in one hour?
Meeting Satish at the library. Two books are overdue.

14. Is anyone in love with you?
Of course, yes. Who is not in love with me?  Please raise your hands :D

15. Last time you cried?
A few hours ago.

16. Are you on a desktop computer or a laptop?
Laptop. HP Pavillion.

17. Are you currently wanting any piercings or tattoos?
No tattoos for me, ever. When you grow old (assuming you live that long) they will  look like wrinkled prunes stuck on your skin. I don't think tattoos are cool at all. However, I do like piercings. I am considering getting my eye brow pierced but it would look odd at Parent Teacher meetings :D

18. Would you ever date anyone covered in tattoos?
No way. Tattoos don't turn me on at all.

19. What were you doing before this?
Feeding my children.

20. When is the last time you slept on the floor?
December 2009, in my mom's cottage In Kerala.

21. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
Sometimes even four works just fine.

22. Do you eat breakfast daily?
Every single day, without fail. I eat a great big huge breakfast and I eat in front of the TV watching music videos (that is the only time I watch TV too) :D

If  you have a blog then you have to  do this tag there :-)  But if you want to do it in my comment box too, you're most welcome!  To make it easier for you to copy paste, here are the questions without my answers.

1. What curse word do you use the most?

2. Do you own an iPod?

3. What person do you talk to on the phone the most?

4. Do you still remember the first person you kissed?

5. Do you remember where you were on 11/9/01?

6. What was the last movie you watched?

7. Has anyone ever called you lazy?

8. Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep?

9. Has anyone told you a secret this week?

10. What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?

11. What are you looking forward to?

12. Do you own any band t-shirts?

13. What will you be doing in one hour?

14. Is anyone in love with you?

15. Last time you cried?

16. Are you on a desktop computer or a laptop?

17. Are you currently wanting any piercings or tattoos?

18. Would you ever date anyone covered in tattoos?

19. What were you doing before this?

  15. :)

    Hmmm...so you mean to tell us that Satish ain't the answer to point 4, eh? ;)

    Totally loved the answer to point 8.

    And I love tattoos, I like calling it 'body art'. You just need to know where you need to have them...they can be so beautiful. And yes, it was just my thought and I completely get your point. And no, they won't prune on me ;p

Re-store : A delightful little shop in Whitefield, Bangalore.

All of us are guilty, at least to some extent  of hoarding stuff. We hold on to old things--be it clothes, books, utensils, footwear, knick-knacks or some such, that form the minutiae of our daily lives. Many a time these add to the the clutter too. Rare is the home which looks like the above pic.


I am a huge fan of Marie Kondo, and I highly recommend her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up  which is more than just a book.

It is an entire philosophy, and a new approach. I read the book back to back, and immediately put into use the methods described in the book. I must tell you how wonderful I felt! I never thought that I could be that organised.

Clearing clutter, and the stuff that you no longer have use for, does release 'blocked energy.' There is no scientific or rational explanation for this. I only know that it works for me. Any Feng Shui practitioner and  loads of Eastern Schools of belief will confirm this.

I always make it a point to give away things I no longe…

A Valentines Day special! (Win a trip to Mumbai, and attend Women Writers Fest with me!)

Hello!

How have you been? How has the new year started for you? I hope all is good.

 This is  my first post of 2019 (God, where did January go? And where did two weeks of Feb vanish?!) and it's on Valentine's day.


I have a lot of news to share with you, though if you have been following me on Instagram or Twitter or facebook, this isn't really 'new news' to you. I have decided to read a 100 books this year! Yes, a hundred :)

And guess what--I have already finished 13, and am now on my 14th. This is probably one of the reasons, I didn't blog earlier. I was too caught up in reading (and writing my next book). If you want to see all the books I have read, and what I thought of them, I have put them all in the highlights on my instagram page.

You don't need an Instagram account to  view it. Just click on the link, and then look at circular  icon, which is the highlights. I have named it 'Books'. I have also shared tips to read more, My favourite books o…

Why I cannot speak for free at your event.

This post is similar to the semi-rant post that I posted a while back--- Why I cannot read the Stuff you send me.  Once again, I am compelled to write this post, after a long e-mail exchanges.

 I am writing this post so that the next time I get a request, I can just send this link and avoid repetitive email exchanges or explanations.

I get invites from MANY colleges and many corporate organisations, throughout the country. The requests are many more than I can handle.

'Ma'am, we are your huge fans..We will display all your books...we will take care of your travel and stay but we don't have a budget for speaker fees.. We must tell you that  X,Y and Z, including Abdul Kalam spoke  at our college and they did not charge any fees .'.  This is the general tone of emails.Many  of the college festivals that invite me  have music concerts and would not hesitate to spend huge amounts for  paying the singers and flying the performers in. And so, what shocks me is that the colleg…
