TAG- Ten things that define my style ... :D

Guess the Tag-bug has bitten blogsville!!! Shruti aka blunk;) has tagged me to list Ten things that define my style ...

Well... here goes...

I just love myself no matter what others say, what others see me as! It's just this confidence that I know who I am and that I'm a being of infinite capacities and gifted with a million opportunities is what keeps me so upbeat about life! I am self-assured to the point of infinity! I don't give a damn to others opinions most of the time. I am what I am and don't like to change my essential spirit for life until it genuinely harms another's life! :)I know I have it in me to rule the world! I know my capacities and disabilities and always know how to take that extra mile to kiss success! :D

2>>> I have a 'method in my madness'. My zone's ALWAYS cluttered but there's a sense in all the nonsense.

3>>> I can carry off anything- right from the most weirdest of jewellery(I have big fat gypsy beads and shell necklaces!) to all kinds of clothing- traditional(saree types! :P), casual(jeans and tops/kurtis/tees) to semi-casual(salwars, skirts, etc). I flaunt my style and am EXTREMELY snug in my skin! :)

4>>> I love writing more than architecture and proud to say that it'll ALWAYS be so! :) Someday the world shall read my writings and shall be proud of my words! :) Ah... My Alpine Path... :)

5>>> I love Italics and CAPITALS... I mean I love to emphasis my point! :D I am DAMN expressive!!!

6>>> I'll help people as much as I can! I'm very affectionate and prayerful and... sadly... gullible! Sometimes people take me on a ride and laugh when I fall flat and get up bruised!

7>>> I love to be in the limelight- love the stage, the mike, my voice, to sing, to dance, theatre, speak... ANYTHING! :) I have no inhibitions whatsoever when it comes to the stage! I just lurv it!!! :) I've compered cultural shows, seminars, etc, done running commentary for sports' days and even acted in plays(only school plays, sadly! :( ) and miss it all deeeeeeply now as, due to the lack of time in this course, I'm not able to follow up on these passions! :(

8>>> I am not modest and I don't regret it. I've tried a million times to be so but failed. I love to talk about myself. :D

9>>> I love talking, meeting new people, making new friends and TRAVEL!!! I lurvvvvvv travel! The ultimate aim in my life is to visit every single nook and cranny in this world!!! :) I'm more loyal than any dog! :D I GENUINELY care for people!

10>>> I am a die-hard optimist and very easily spread the cheer(as well as the depression! :D ) to people! I'm the official pep-talker for ALL my friends! My words, enthusiasm and smiles are infectious! :D

GOD!!! I sound like some egoistic narcissistic over-confident blab mouth!

But yeah... I AM all that I guess!!!


Now for the mean bit- I tag....... Akki, Arvind, Vani, Dhruvee, Vinesh, Harish, Prav, Hamsini, Rums ,Kausik,A.M.Aravind, Sagaro, Soups, Witchoo(ah! Revenge! :D ), Navin Anna, Shyam anna, Loonie, Charan, nanyaar,
Ramanujam, Raghuveer, Nirenjan, Rakesh and whoever else who wishes to take the tag!

And guys do drop in a word here when you finish the tag so I can come and read it! :D

Comedy of Errors!!! :D

What occured today can only be termed as what the title suggests! After a lovely resolution of not biting at my mean friends' throats for absolutely forgetting me when they all went galavanting across the city to see 'Guru' without me(fifth time that I had to miss an opportunity of watching the movie! DAMN it's jinxed!!! X( ), I thought the day was going to be nice/bitter/normal but never in my wildest dreams did I think it would be comical!!! :)

Well, comical, though, it turned out to be!

It all started when I wore a pretty kurta I bought recently and mix and matched it with another salwar that I had. It was a striped mellow orange short kurti and EVERYBODY's told me that I look damn pretty in it( I know! I know!!! :D ) . Since Anu never saw me in it, she asked me to wear it to college. Just for her sake I wore it- but this time with the salwar rather than my trusted pair of black jeans(which is stinking and lying for a wash! :P ). It seemed a perfect combo last evening! And this morning as I stepped out into the sunlight I realised what a colour blinded fool I am!!! The salwar was pink!!!! NOT the orange that I imagined it to be!!! :P

Well, I thought that was the end of it. But it was just the beginning!!! :D In the first hour of 'Mechanical Services in a building' (taken by a pretty good lady staff from Mech dept), my eye started hurting like hell! I excused myself and went to rinse it in water. Well surprise!!!!!!!! My lens came out and was lying in my hands torn mid-way!!! I went to class and asked a fellow lens-wearing friend to lend me her lens case. I removed the other lens and kept.

Now this was in the view of the entire class and you know how guys are... they just need a li'l spark to light a fire!(Actually everyone needs just a spark! he he!!! :D ) My lovely brother Immesh goes and fetches a heavy Iron pipe to be used as a walking stick for the visually challenged!!! :( Everyone else started this whole 'what colour is this?' 'How much is this?' etc!!! :( Sadly with a power of -4 in both my blessed eyes, I could figure some and some-not at all! Then Fahem, Abishek, Uma and Singay started this whole 'recognise who I am' round. They will insist on standing at a distance and ask me to identify!!!

God!!! It was so funny but at the same time I did feel so bad I could not see like others blessed with normal vision! I sure am going to get my eye operated with laser for corrective vision! :D And yeah baby... that's gonna be sooner than later! ;)

Sometimes I don't know how I let people see through me but I guess I do! :) My most deepest thoughts are easily read by atleast two blessed souls on earth- Akki and Anoodha!!! God... they surprise me with the understanding they have of me! :) Am I that transparent? :)

Then as I was just about to enter my flat today, I stepped on a poor poor doggie's paw!!! :"( Okay... i used to hate dogs, cats and every other animal but ever since I met 'Lassie'- my friend's dog and 'Appu'- another friend's doggie,I really like dogs! :) I felt so bad for the dog I stepped on! Poor thing... it must have hurt like hell!!! :( Well, I shrieked and ran into my flat! All the maamis who were having their daily evening session of gupshup looked at me clutching at my neck in horror and ashen-faced, and asked me seriously - "Did someone rob your chain?" I was sooooooooo tickled!!! :D

It was so unconnected and absurd! I NEVER wear gold anywhere but for marriages and that too out of compulsion! I prefer artificial pretty jewellery and yeah.. I'm fascinated by platinum. Silver allures me more than Gold! :) The situation was just too funny I couldn't help laughing. When I explained to them, they all at once peeped behind me... GOD.. it was just SO hilarious!!! :D

He he... Well it really was a refreshing thing to have a totlly topsy-turvy day today! :D Had fun actually!!! :)

After what I was yesterday- down in the depths of despair because a few people forgot my existence(including one of my best friends!!! :( )- today was just a BLESSING!!! :)

For The Dreamy Dryad to have rediscovered her dreamy, poetic, upbeat and happy self, a special special thanks is definitely due to all of these people... in their own ways they all made me smile(in the order of the occurence of pacifying me back to normalcy)...
Arvind( for being a total sweetheart! :) For being the AMAZING conversationalist that he is...Oh Bro... u rock!!! :) ),

Dhruvee( for all his sweet concern and affection! Sir D... I owe you one! :) I'll torture you less, i promise.. Now there... Don't start those celebrations! X( X( X( ),

Akki( for just being Akki! She's just SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO perfect as Akki! :D Makes no sense to u all??? Well... My Akki understands! ;) A li'l too much sometimes!!! ;) he he!!! )

and my mirror, my shadow- Anoodha( winks! smiles! hugsss! You are the best! :) )

he he.. I'm sooooo moody right? Well... i'm 90% of the days happy... only the other 10% causes the trouble! :D

Resolution of NOW: be less moody! :D

Go greeeeeeeeeeeeeen!!!

The green coloured Nail-polish Aprilslady was talking about... :D I became the victim... And now look like the devil himself!! he he... But I like it!!! :D

BACK!!! :D

I'm back after a lovely trip to Manipal to attend the 49th annual NASA Convention! :D

I've just had a soul wash and I'm loving it! It seems so darned good to travel around the world, trod those untrodden paths, see the sees and smell the smells...

Woweeeeeee!!! Your gurl's on a dreamsong! :)

All she wants now is to crawl back into lazy life! :)

But well... there's my portfolio to be done... hmmm... I'm gonna work hard this year... with full energy and spirit and dedication. :)

God bless the world! I love this life!!! :D

Witchoo tagged me to declare to the world, 5 things it didn't know about me.... Well... finding 5 things was difficult considering whatta big mouth I am! But well... after serious and sincere brain-racking, here goes....

1. Though I am very talkative, I am simply great with secrets! Not my own though... but my friends' secrets! Tell me something and ask me to hush-hush about it and I'll seal my lips forever! In fact I wouldn't even break my word to my best friends!!! But when it comes to my own secrets... well... there aren't ANY!!! I... am an open book! *sigh*

I am not judgemental at all! I accept people as they are! I am very flexible...especially with my opinion on people. I give loads of allowances for other's behaviour and most often think from their perspective!

3. I am old-fashioned to the core!!!! I lurvvvvvvvv the old Victorian ways, manners and lifestyle! In fact I devour Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' every summer holiday!!! :D I love chivalry in men AND women. I personally don't like modern day's 'no strings attached relationships' and 'flings' and 'rude is khewl' policies!!! I like polite people, salwar kameez, full sleeves, collar necks, non-disco non-alcoholic home parties, li'l celebrations with my sister and cousin and I love long walks on my terrace! I am against smoking, drinking and drugs and don't find them cool! I would anytime prefer my good old Prince Charming on a steed or a sweet smiling boy-next door types to any rough-n-tough hunk! And sadly... they're a dying(or dead?) breed!!! :P

4. I tell the truth most of the time! I lie very rarely! And if I did lie to you, it would have been only a white lie or there would be a genuine reason. I love truth and try my best to be truthful.
Nothing like transparency!!! :)

5. I hate seclusion and disloyalty! Back-stabbing, leaving me stranded in the middle are things I dread and which make me paranoid! :( I loathe snobs, bullies, supercillious people, turncoats, non-commital people. Even diplomacy beyond a limit is intolerable!!! X(

Okie... now lemme go for the kill!!! I tag...

Akki,Arvi boy, Vani, Dhruvee, Shruti, Hamsini, Rums, 'Moron' Magix and 'Vetti' Praveen

Muhahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! :D

Ensoi!!! :D
