On Being Tagged!

22 August 2009

When Kasabian Girl number tagged me, I broke out in cold sweat. At first, I froze and then went into a nervous frenzy. At a particular point, I even contemplated killing my blog altogether! Yeah, that’s how daunting the task seemed to me!

Then, I decided to face it all, what the heck. So here goes nothing.

1. Let’s see now. Err…the beginning of it all…including impossible lists like this one here.

2. That’s how many siblings I have. (And, we’re always warring!)

3. Email ids. I have 3 of them for…just for kicks.

4. This is tough…my multiple selves. (I am a little like Sibyl…she of the 16 (split) personality fame.)

5. The number of bedrooms I’d like to have in my house.

6. This is how many times I munch on food, on an average day! (Drat!)

7. The day I get my salary! Damn! This one’s enormously boring! 7..7…ah! The number of lives I’d like to have before I get liberated!

8. Different kinds of rides I’ve taken: Bullock cart, tricycle, horse cart, cycle rickshaw, scooter, car, airplane, donkey (yes! This, too!)

9. Favourite characters/people, fictional or not: Lawrence Olivier, Shylock (no, Kasabian girl, I ain’t borrowing. He’s my fav, too!), Rhett Butler, Calvin & Hobbes, Sherlock Holmes, Elizabeth Bennet, Iago, Anne of Green Gables, The Cheshire Cat, Bertie Wooster…errr…I think I just exceeded the list.

10. 10 movies I like: Life is Beautiful, Death at a Funeral, Shawshank Redemption, Sound of Music, The King & I, Pride & Prejudice, Mackenna’s Gold, My Fair Lady, The Scarlet Pimpernel(the Anthony Andrews version), Dial M for Murder.

Wait. There’s more. I know it ought to stop at 10.

11: The number of times I have taken a resolution in the last one hour to not go deranged and loony making lists like these! I swear you’ll have to take my pulse to check if I’m alive, such is the vacant, glassy & cold look in my eyes.

Here are some of the other people I’d like to tag(why should I leave them in peace?): Eternally Distracted, Saad, Distant Reflections, Indian Pundit, Jeannie, Arjun, Freelancer, Queen’s Reveries, Rare Sparks, Lorrin, Rohini Prashanth, Sourav, AD, Snapping Panda, kaka.

People, please carry on the tag!

{Psst: K Girl: I really had a good time doing this!:)}

Jaideep Sobti 8/22/2009  

hmmm... interesting. Since i've been tagged and can't possibly refuse the Bard... here goes nothing.

So like a few years back I was sitting in ‘Friday's’ drinking a glass of wine; when in walked a girl who almost struck me blind!! She had blue eyes and her legs were long and fine. On a scale of one to ten, I'd give her a 9.

Now on my scale there ain't no 10's, you know. 9 is about as far as any girl can go. So I flashed her a smile, but she didn't even look at me! So for brains and good judgment, I'd give her a 3.

I said, "Hey sweet thing, you look like a possible 8. You and me could make eighteen, if your head's on straight." She looked up and down my perfect frame, and said these words that burned into my perfect brain:-

She said, “well, another one of those “macho-matician” men, the kind who grade women on scales of 1 to 10. And, you give me an 8. Well, that's a generous thing to do. Now, let's just see how much I give you!”

She said, “you coming on to me with that phony numbers jive; Your style makes me smile... I give it a 5! When you walked up I noticed that shirt of yours and it's last year's washed cuffs, so i give it a 4!”

“That must be your car parked out on the curb. That '83 fiat, i give it a 3 and a third! Now, as for your build, you’re less than 5! Except, for your pot belly.... I'd give that a 10 for size!!”

“That wine you're pouring might be fine to you; but I'm used to fine champagne, so i give it a 2! It's hard to tell what your flashing smile is worth. I give it a 6 coz’ you could use some dental work!!”

“But, it's your strutting rooster act that really makes me laugh. It may be a 10 to these country hens, but to me - a 3 and a half!! And there really ain't much to add once the subtracting is done; since there ain't no 0’s, I give you a 1!!!”

As she walked out, the whole bar laughing all at once,
said' "Jai, what happened to your 9!!"

BardSpeaks 8/22/2009  

@Saad: Yeah! Have ridden on donkey-back! :-)

@Jai: THIS WAS OUTRAGEOUSLY FUNNY! Where's your post, though???
