A Meme

It's really long since I have visited this place and I think it's the longest break ever :( Thank you all who mailed/messaged/called me to check if I am fine and encouraged me to write. I am doing good. It's just that picking up the broken pieces of your shattered life and putting them back together can be a very painstaking task. As you go into different directions to find and pick up the broken pieces, you will discover that they have scattered in directions you never thought they would go — yielding results that were never intended. It takes up most of your energy and leaves you drained mentally and physically. Anyway I was planning for a comeback and Preeti's meme came just in time. So I am taking it as a excuse to break my silence :)

Here it goes..

1. What curse word do you use the most?
Oh S#!t

2. Do you own an iPod?
Yes - one nano and one touch

3. What person do you talk to on the phone the most?
My friends - Heena , Deepa , Dhanya [no I don't talk to myself. It's my childhood friend with the same name :)]

4. Do you still remember the first person you kissed?
Any cute lil ones will surely get a kiss from me. So can't remember :)

5. Do you remember where you were on 11/9/01?
Yes in Bangalore. Was watching helplessly the collapsing WTC with my roommate knowing very well that her brother worked in the 105th floor of that building. But he miraculously escaped running down all the floors and that reinforced my belief that everything happens according to a pre-laid plan.

6. What was the last movie you watched?
3 Idiots. I broke a 22 year long record with this one.

7. Has anyone ever called you lazy?
My roommates used to tease me saying they will give me something if I sit still for 5 mins. I was always up to something all the time - sketching,painting,cooking,craft works or out travelling, working with kids etc. But when it comes to boring stuff - like studying for an exam :P, you won't find me with a book unless it is the prev day of the exam. So mom always used to crib about that. Also of late since I stopped regular cooking (it's not fun to cook n eat al alone right?), my friends and landlord do call me lazy just to irritate me and make me cook :)

8. Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep?
Not till now. I remember during my teens when I was struggling with PMS pains I went and asked mom to give me a sleeping pill so that I can forget the pain and sleep. She scolded me nicely and her theory was that girls are born to bear the pain and shouldn't take any such tablets. Ironically I followed that advice until last year, but now I am like what are medicines for if not to ease your suffering?

9. Has anyone told you a secret this week?
Yes. And I am a good secret keeper

10. What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?
Eyes and smile. It has to be caring and sensitive. And no pretense or showoffs please.

11. What are you looking forward to?
Trip to kerala this weekend. I'll be meeting my 1 month old nephew this time :)

12. Do you own any band t-shirts?
Nope. not a band person

13. What will you be doing in one hour?
Sleeping :)

14. Is anyone in love with you?
No clue if there are still some persistent ones:D

15. Last time you cried?
Of late most of the nights :(

16. Are you on a desktop computer or a laptop?
Self assembled desktop :)

17. Are you currently wanting any piercings or tattoos?
Nope. I hate tattoos and too many piercings also is nauseating

18. Would you ever date anyone covered in tattoos?
Not my type.

19. What were you doing before this?
Kick Boxing

20. When is the last time you slept on the floor?
Sept 2009 when amma passed away. We have a ritual that for 10 days daughters sit/eat/sleep on the floor in front of a kedavilakku.

21. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
6-7 hrs usually. But if needed, I can manage with 1 or even less(but can't sustain for long).

22. Do you eat breakfast daily?
Yes.One meal I'm sure not to miss. But had a bad habit of skipping it during school n college days

Hugs!!
That was a refreshing and open post. And elcome back. Do write.

And one question-- U never see movies??

Dr Roshan R said...

good to have u back.. what can i say ? from experience, i thought i'd never get back up after some extremely traumatic emotional blows.. only time can heal certain scars.. nothing others say may offer u the solace u need.

take care, though.. we all care for u.

Usha said...

*beeg bear hugs*
good to have u back, girl.

psst psst.. what's this thing about kickboxing now?

also, yeah i've never given the sleeping pills a try ( do gulping down generous quantities of cough syrup qualify? ).
what i do of late when sleep evades me is to try n follow the steps to meditate. I would always fall asleep whenever I tried to meditate. And then one sleepless night, I had my eureka moment n tadaaa!! hello blissful sleep! :)

take care, dhanya..

Sini said...
