Forty Nine

I don’t really do tags. But I’m in a self-indulgent mood today.
And I could use several shots in the arm.
So, I’m taking this on from TS.

Last movie seen in a theatre:
Iron Man. (Damned, I’m waiting for Kung-fu Panda and The Dark Knight)

What book are you reading?
It’s a bad habit that I have, of reading more than one book at a time. Right now, it’s no different. So:
Slapstick or Lonesome No More – Kurt Vonnegut
The House of Blue Mangoes – David Davidar (I’ve been stuck on this one for ages now.)
To the Lighthouse – Virginia Woolf
The Simoqin Prophecies – Samit Basu

Favourite board game:
Taboo isn’t a board game, no?
Pictionary. Scrabble.

Favourite magazine:
The usual suspects.

Favourite smells:
The smell of mommy. The smell of moist mud. A certain orange moisturizer induced-“woody”-indescribable smell.

Favourite sound:
Pitter patter on a car roof. The sound of the sea. Trains on tracks. Absolute silence.

Worst feeling in the world:
Nausea (agree with TS there). The non-satisfactory exhaustion that lingers as a burn-out. I love the snap before getting angry, though. And the rush of an idea.

What is the first thing you think of when you wake up?
The time.

Favourite fast food place:
Java City, Church St.. Poonam Chaat Center, BSK BDA Complex. Bhavani Chaats, JP Nagar.

Future child’s name:


Finish this statement, “If I had a lot of money I’d…”
Quit my job. Leave enough money for the ones who matter. Disappear.
Travel. Write. Make movies, music. Go back to school, learn the weirdest of subjects and languages.

Do you drive fast?
Fairly. Keeps me focussed on the road.

Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?
🙂 That could be an interesting way of putting it.

Storms – Cool or Scary?
Indifferent, really. And yes, Inconvenient.

Do you eat the stems on broccoli?
Yes! I *heart* broccoli.

If you could dye your hair any colour, what would be your choice?
*Snort* Next!

Name all the different cities/towns you have lived in:
Bangalore, Bengaluru. (Though Bombay did see me for two months.)

Favourite sports to watch:
ODI Cricket. Maybe T20 with the right company. And though I don’t really keep track of teams, football.

One nice thing about the person who sent this to you:
TS writes well. I don’t know much else about him 🙂

What’s under your bed?
A giant suitcase with books and trophies.

Would you like to be born as yourself again?
Err. No. Let’s give someone else a shot.

Morning person or night owl?
Actually, both. And I peak again, after lunch. It’s those non-descript hours, like 11AM, 7PM that kill me.

Over easy or sunny side up?

Favourite place to relax:
Steps outside office. Dangerously located terraces and ledges.

Favourite pie:
Strawberry Pie at The Only Place. And Apple Pie on a regular basis.

Favourite ice cream flavour:
Chocolate chip. Or Blueberry cheesecake.

You pass this tag to:
Sorry TS. But here’s your answer again: Anyone who could use a shot in the arm

My Mom loves Samit Basu, and Davidar’s book is staring at me in the face as we speak.Achha, and if you like movies I insist that you watch this movie called ‘Lars and the Real Girl’. Its brilliant.
