Peeping into myself

This guy is all intrigued about me. Let me try giving him some insights.

My Accent: Mallu ishtyle

Booze: Tried twice & realised not really my cuppa tea.

Its damn expensive & I didn't feel like I was walking on the cloud, neither did I dare pick up a fight with the eveteasers, couldn't remember to call my then-boss and call him names, didn't cry over a lost love of my KG class, didn't want to meet Amma right at that moment & nobody raped me mixing that drug in the booze as they say in those e-mail forwards...

phew .. nothing happened??? that was all??? ....

So I am happy with my coffee, tea & butter milk in the reverse order.

Chore I Hate: Cleaning the kitchen & washing the plates after dinner. It is so difficult to get up after hogging like mad; just want to sleep like dead, right there on the table.

Dog or Cat: Neither. They bite. I hate.

Essential Electronics: Nothing. I was computer science for grad and finance for mba. (OK, I can hear some one shouting "PJ,PJ" in the background)

Perfume: Got three. All gifts. Guess I stink ;) (Thanks dear for those and lot more)

Gold or Silver: White gold (Yet to buy anything in that. But I am sure I am gonna like it). Someone please take it as a hint.

Home: Refugee in Mumbai

Insomnia: Whats that???

Job Title: Business Analyst (And what is that? I think they haven't come up with a proper title on what I do. So sticking to that.)

Living Arrangements: Staying in one of the best areas in Mumbai. You gotta see to beleive it and its dead cheap too. (Sadly, gotta move out in one month)

Most Admirable Traits: I think it is my ability to get along with most types of nerds, except for the arrogant ones

Number of Sexual Partners: None yet. Not planning to rape anyone either, yet to reach the height of frustration. So all you handsome hunks, you can hang around near me without any apprehensions.

Number of times in hospital: Once. When me and HOG fell off the bike. It went like this.

We were taking a turn under the overbridge.
Me: "I think we are falling"
After five seconds, He: "I think we fell off"
After half an hour, in the hospital, Rafeeq: "You guys fell off?"

Phobias: Heighttttttttttt. Just can't look down from the terrace. I can eat crockoaches if you insist but yes, I am acrophobic.

Animals & birds.
All started when I was a kid & one daughter-of-a-bitch hen ran after me just 'cos poor me passed thru the place where all her offsprings were hanging around. I ran with my record speed. (Though I have had a couple of other occassions to rejuvenate my talent, had never broken that rrrecord).

Then there was a crow that mistakenly took poor me for the destructor of its nest and sratched my head, making me think I was encountering some ghostly spirit haunting me.

Quote: Mind if it's a poem??

There’s no thrill in easy sailing,
When the sky is clear and blue.
There’s no joy in merely doing
Things which anyone can do.
But there is some fulfillment
That is mighty sweet to take,
When you reach a destination,
You thought you couldn’t make.
(Author Unknown)

Religion: India is a secular country

Siblings: A freaky brother who is an aspiring drummer but an engineer by chance, a lyricist & music director by choice and a voracious reader by habit. Damn good story teller, knows about all the so far existed music bands & particularly knows the life history of their drummers, has got some crazy female fans, always helps me out of Achan's fury, recently shaved off his long hair which was longer than mine. Made up of the best material for a sibling & embellished with sparkling friendship traits

Time I Wake Up: Anytime between 0 am to 12 pm. The probabilty is high between 8.30 am to 3 pm.

Unusual Talent or Skill: The unbeatable ability to embarass myself. This is something I was blessed with during birth. But a lot of hard work had gone into actually developing it.

I have worn my skirt inside out in school, not just once or twice, but a good number of times.

Recently I was fwding a pesonal mail to someone with a sarcasting remark about the original sender. Pressed reply and sent to the original sender........

Those are just the tip of the iceberg.

Vegetable I Love: Fish, fish & fish. After that - Lady's finger, Cabbage, Row banana, Leafy vegs, Cucumber, you name it & I love it.

Worst Habit: Not being attentive at times & procrastination..

X-Rays, Last time: In Jan, for my pre-employement medical check up

Yummy Food I Make: Cabbage Thoran, Ladies Finger and yes, fish fry.

Whenever I am at home, I insist on making fish fry myself.
Coriander+Green Chilly+ Ginger Garlic+Pepper+Salt , marinate and fry ... somebody take me home, plssssssssssssss

Zodiac Sign: Cancer

People tagged to do it : HOG, (gotta force him all the time to write something), Nair (hopefully she will oblige owing to her new found blogging talent), Rafeeq (gotta wait & watch), Rose (u better, u cud be moving in with me)

Nice post. Got a picture of YOU.

Why is that drinking alcohol is always considered to be bad ? People can drink wine with food ? (white wine goes good with fish, fyi -for your information). Drinking alcohol doesn't mean getting drunk and raping somebody...A friend (male) of mine, went to an unknown person's house, a person he met in the park and looked nice and accepted his invitation for a drink at his place, and all he remembered is drinking a vodka and he opens his eyes...he is naked tied and 5-6 men standing in front of him all naked. !!!! Sorry to say this, It is a true story...It happened last year in Germany. These people are perverts!!! Nothing to do with alcohol. Everything has got a limit. And one has to see the content of alcohol in each drink.

Cates bite too ? I didn't know!!!

I miss MUMBAI...

Number of sexual partners ...NO comments !!! I was so surprised to see that you talk about your PRIVATE life so openly.

Religion - You are so right. I agree with you.

@fellow
thanks to koutilya

@babes
booze:- i know i was still on two legs instead of four after the trial. no no, it was not 'cos i was a habitual drinker who wud quickly gulp down a peg or two b4 going to bed that i was unaffected that day.

there can b only two reason:
1) i completely imagined all the normal dinner and coming back home under the influence of the booze while actually i was sitting on the floor and crying for a lollypop brother snatched from me while i was 4 and a half years old and in reality it was u guys who forcefully took me bak home.

2)the bloody a**h**** pub owner fooled us amateurs by giving just sprite without booze (or he mixed some dettol to giv the slight smell)

Chore I hate:- I have to do that as everyday I lunch with a 3 year old kid trapped in a 23 year old female's body who just can't manage to eat without spiling half of the food on the table and in the crowded canteen no one dares to sit even in the tables next to us

Most Admirable Trait: I knew u'll agree. After all v stayed together ;)

Number of sexual partners: Beleive me. Not yet. Just cudn't manage. Now i am piously watching all of those mallika sherawath movies to learn the "art of seducing".

Religion: ;-)

Siblings:- Yup. thats what we pass down thru generations. u'll also find freaky unkle, aunties and freakier cousins (me & brother being the best .. or worst)

waiting for my freakiest partner.. just dn't want to compromise on that quality

Unusual Talent: common, to stumble once or twice a day is not a big number. u r simply exaggerating

Poeple tagged to do it:- *Rotationg the key of my yet-to-be-bought-house in my index finger and giving u a condescending look*

hhhhmmmmmmm .... ur choice

@koutilya
u can pay bribe in euros. try giving me

For a girl, you sure use the word "rape" with plenty of abandon. Perhaps you should actually think about it for one second.
Remember the last time you were eve-teased with a glance, a dirty word? Now multiply the helplessness and dirty feeling and violation a thousand fold, and imagine you will never forget it as long as you live, and will have nightmares about it.

You're probably not going to approve this comment, but it wll help if you just think the next time you casually toss off the word "rape".

1:03 PM  
Blogger Prash said...

oh dear,

Yes, a man got raped by 5-6 men. Yes!!! It is horrible to imagine. It happens. And these people are reall perverts. I can't even think how can they drug a guy and rape him all tied. Can you imagine the horrendous situation my friend went through ? He was so weak for many months. Now, he is very strong after many therapy sessions. He is very close friend of mine. I was so shaken last year. For months I was disturbed too. I don't know why I am sharing all these stuff with you...sorry for the bother.

i am sorry if i offended you. that was just a sarcasm on the e-mail fwds.

true, i haven't gone thru that trauma. but please don't take me as one of those so called "cultural watch dogs" who thinks that women are to be blamed for such acts of vandalism. in such cases i am a radical feminist.

all i meant was a little fun abt the e-mail fwds but i am sorry that the thrust went to the rape word. you are 101% right on what u said.

why wud i not publish ur comment? i can take criticism and corrective advices. thanks for stopping by & pointing out. that piece of comment will help me think b4 i take things lightly. thanks buddy.
