Seven tag

Halleluia! Somebody tagged me, finally. I have arrived in blogosphere. I am now officially tagged person. People know me. Hell, they even read me. What's more, they really want to know things like this about my life. I am amazing. I am god.

Getting back to the Seven tag:

Seven things I plan to do:

1. Update this blog more regularly. As Jabberwock once said to me,
this prima donna-ish behaviour will just not do.

2. Start reading five newspapers a day. Or at least one. You are
surprised there are that many to be read? Hell, so am I.

3. Buy a two-wheeler so I can stop devising excruciatingly painful
ways to kill Bangalore autowallas

4. Read the 107 books gathering dust on my shelves

5. Stop buying books till I finish the above-mentioned 107

6. Cut down on my mobile phone bill. Convoluted conversations through
SMS cost money, I have realised. It's just cheaper to call

7. Have a baby (blush blush). No, it's not time for the bouquets just
yet, thank you.

Seven things I can't do:

1. Buy the right kind of shoes

2. Learn how to say 'no' graciously in manner of refined society hostess

3. Understand what makes rock music so special

4. Keep my cupboard in any kind of order and REALLY throw out clothes
I don't wear instead of stashing them away in a corner

5. Remember where I put glasses after removing contact lenses, rendering myself temporarily semi-blind

6. Decide whether I really miss Delhi or not

7. Finish work way before deadline so I don't have to look at the empty computer screen on D-Day and whimper softly

Seven things I say quite often

1. "Benson Town chalega? Ten rupees extra"

2. "Hi, this is (me) from (the paper). There is this column we have... umm.. do you have a minute?"

3. "Where the FUCK did I keep my glasses?"

4. "Oh my God!"

5. "Whatever"

6. "The story's working out fine, really fine, really"

7. and all that, you know

Ok, now I even get to tag other people. Feeling of awesome power! I hereby tag:

Tridib

Fool over the Hill (oops, sorry, that's on the hill :D)

Roshomon

Sheetal Vyas

Raconteur

-- A much-empowered me.

Totally identify with point number 3. Is it just me or is it getting increasingly difficult to find autos in Bangalore? They never seem to want to go ANYWHERE. Nowadays they don't even wait long enough for one to offer extra money :-(

came here from arka's (did you know, btw, that that's the name of a resturant in cal? jai hok...) and navigated away TWICE, taking in just the colour scheme and thinking i had reached MY blog again. gawd! but yeah, update this thing sooner, you're so entertaining! (re, first paragraph. and most of the list :D)

oftener, i meant. update oftener. that's a 'gawd' again, is it?

Anonymous: Just go away, ok? I am morally against that word verification thing, so just go. And just because I mention autowallas, you don't have to spring back with instant road repair, whatever that means. How DOES that work though? Hmmm.

Ron: Hey, just saw your blog. Loved your Purulia post.

I am thinking of buying a gun, actually. Chalta hai ke dabaun ghoda?

Rimi: Thanks and all. Your whiny admirer post really made my day.

hmmm...a gun is a verrrry good idea. in fact its uncanny how our minds seem to work on similar lines. ive had those "chalega ya chalaoon goli" kind of thoughts too. so nice.
thanks for visiting my blog btw. always nice to know i have more visitors ;-)

Hey, I thought you do read five newspapers a day. Let's see: reading the Hindu furtively, the TOI even more furtively, the guardian online..and I'm sure there are a couple I'm forgetting. Oh yes, The Daily..oops..The Telegraph. Gawd, you read that too?
And err..given your traffic navigating abilites on foot, you on a two wheeler is a rather ramsay brothes-esque idea, I must say.
SMS does cost money, especially when you wastefully send about ten thousand of them to people who've got their phones switched off because they happen to be extremely busy saving the world or some such. :P
Point seven, I'm sure, is the result of recent conversations with my 'wife'?

@ rimi,
child, thou shalt treat me at the said restaurant.

Hi Marauder's m & ron,

I would think Bangalore autos are a far superior breed to their Chennai (& other?) counterparts. Namma bengaluru & all... 'course, I am not at their mercy v. much ;)
btw, gud u did convert to word verification finally!

Oh dear the autowallahs figure really prominently, they must be giving you a very hard time.

So err....when is the rock haters convention on?
