million dollar tag!!

I got tagged by my pal Velu and am pretty sure he guessed right that am jobless these days. This tag was quite fun unlike the sadist foodie tag!!(Growling at one of my favourite bloggers silverine ;))…Am finding lot of fun surfing the blog world these days as it’s my only solace in office these days...Two of my roommates are leaving soon to their own destinies. One of em is going onsite and the other leaving job for higher studies…Am bit apprehensive of life ahead. It feels bad that all the fun is over and time to move on. Wish em good luck!!


I am thinking about: my trip home next week. It has been 3 months since last one and this time am getting 5 days off! Although I love to pretend that am not homesick, sometimes it gets into your head!!

I said: You got to get angry at your boss someday...Stop pretending!!

I want to: visit Leh and have a hot tea in the snow!!

I wish: Vidya Balan just drops by my place...sing that song from parineeta for me...get married...And have 2 kids...Hehehe...I am not overtly ambitious!! ;)

I wonder: god must be really intelligent..He just created man and woman. A third entity would have been confusing!!

I regret: I have psychologically manipulated myself not to regret on anything!

I hear: Blowing in the wind-Joan Baez. I start my day listening to it!!

I am: a box of chocolates!! Though few em are unappetizing!!

I dance: an exotic variety of Spanish tango with sensuous gyrations. It resembles vaguely with another art form called “dappankuthu” (Rajanikanth isthyle)

I sing: kidding eh?? It works as repellants at times!!

I cry: frankly really long time...But I feel like crying when I listen the song “Lukha Chuppi” from RDB...

I am not: the CIA mole who many think I am!!

I make with my hands: liquid bombs ;)...I don’t have a better answer

I write: anything that comes my mind..I dont have a hidden agenda or something!! ;)

I confuse: those multiple choice questions…Sometimes given a choice can be bad.

I need: 8 hours of sleep ever day...no one dare mess with that..


And my favorite, random quotes are:

We can do no great things; only small things with great love.
--Mother Teresa

I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That's deep enough. What do you want an adorable pancreas?
--anonymous

"If fate does not make you laugh then you just don't get the joke"
-- Shantaram

The nice thing about meditation is that it makes doing nothing quite respectable."
-- Paul Dean

I pass this one to anyone who hasn’t taken up the tag yet!!

The wish was interesting!!!! Singing as repellent mean was equally good! Funny post, Matt.....

jac said...

Yuk !
You mean to say that you compare the famous 'lambada' with Rajani's dance ??

I need some repellent...man

Neers said...

not a CIA mole?? My Lord, thats a Lie!!! He IS the one!

a CIA mole tryin hard to pass off as a Ph.D student... (thesis material, eh??)

starry nights said...

cool tag and a nice write up. I like blowin in the wind also.Have a nice vacation.

silverine said...

I make with my hands...castles in the air ;)

My foodie tag was a lesser pain compared to yours !!! You got your revenge...your was the most painful tag I have ever read, no way am I going back to see it again unless I want another hunger attack :(

Vidya Balan is a good choice, she is really pretty and can sum up more sensousness in a smile than an entire jhatka number of Bips, Shilpa et all put together. Loved that quote from Shantharam. So true!!!
Now we know the secret behind the moustache, it covers the CIA mole doesn't it? Tell the truth!!!!
:p
Loved reading your tag :)

My favorite of your quote.

I wonder: god must be really intelligent..He just created man and woman. A third entity would have been confusing!!

Suji said...

You are a box of choclates! Wow! But are you the sweet variety or the bitter ones? Btw that Anon quote is by Jean Kerr.
I ve not retired yet, but have been thinking abt it.

aqua said...

Good one Mathew! :)

Nicely written.. 'Dappankuthu' is a famous art form still need recognition from Arts Authority! The steps will be even more meaningful if the brain is controlled by the r/b/w factor* in the blood!

*don’t get confused by rbw factor, its simply rum, brandy or whiskey factor!

Hallonskaaram!
Word of advice when you take that trip to Leh.... a pal of mine (and a cpl of his pals) went on a trip into the interior Deosai Plains on yaks.... without a guide apparently! Got lost soon and they had to kill the yaks and eat them till help arrived. :o So take a lot a lot of provisions... just in case. ;)

Vidya Balan eh? Tch tch tch... I dream of Angelina Jolie herself! As the wogs say, "Swapnathil enthina paathi raajyam, muzhuvanum ingu porettu!"

Joan Baez version of Blowin' in the Wind is cool... I got a whole collection of her's from Jacob (ECE 2002, CET. Know him?). Sorta hooked on her immediately.

PS: The Shantaram quote is k00l! I haven't read it yet... plan to do it soon. Anywayz, my fave quote and mantra of life is "Security through Obscurity"! NJAHAHAHAAH
