kal, aaj aur kal...

been a while i did a tag, eh? so here goes. courtesy K3. she's made up this tag and she calls it YTT... but desi that i am. i relate more to kal aaj aur kal!

~ The tag copy ~
Two questions in each category answer them and then tag your friends from the blog-o-sphere. (Simple enough right) Leave a comment on their blog letting them know they have been tagged and you are all set.

Your oldest memory
What were you doing 10 years ago?
Your first thought today morning
If you built a time capsule today what would it contain?
This year ….
What do you see yourself doing 14 years from now?
~ End Tag details ~

my oldest memory: me playing with mom's snow white kitty. i still remember being SO in awe of that cat. she was HUGE *from a 2 year old's perspective* and absolutely snow white! and amazingly friendly. not once did she claw me! i was devastated when she died.

what i was doing 10 years ago.
aug, 1998... that was when the MICA bug bit me. it was around aug of '98 that i decided that that was where i'd do my post grad. i had no clue how i'd manage to get in. *i had a year and half to worry about that!* but i knew i would.
oh yes, i also stopped talking to a very good friend of mine around that time. due to silly misunderstandings... which took a couple of years to resolve.

my first thought this morning: i'm going to canada. i had a dream last night that i was playing with a lynx that i found in my backyard in canada. so that was the thought i woke up with. and then, i watched safari tracks on telly.. which was covering... yeah... wild cats! :D

if i built a time capsule it would contain: people i really don't like. *i have a loooonnnngggg list* and i'd zap them back to the ice age. of course, i'd retain the controls with me. i, on the other hand, would reside happily in the present. and face the future as it comes!

this year: is coming to an end. and i'm happy. i can only hope the next is better.

what i see myself doing 14 years from now: 14, really?? THAT far away!? i can't think of where i'll be next year this time!
i see myself tagging K3 with tags like these! :D
ok.. seriously... i see myself being happy with the lot life deals out to me.

i tag: sahana, suruchi, and suma! and i run away... before they hiSSS at me...!

Hi ,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be wow.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog ‘qui vivra verra’ took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)


rayshma said...

ray: what, again? umm... will chek out the rambhai site. don't wanna check out rambhai tho! :D

comps: yeah. sad i am! :D giving so much importance to those ppl, hai na?

preethi: are u sponsoring?

sahana: that is a really good idea! but then, that's the point of this blog. i already don't relate to much of what i wrote when i just started this blog! :D

galadriel: u wanna experience that bliss? we can work on that if u wish! bitch!

pavi: don't make me miss having a cat... :D
haha... ppl've been asking me since i came here when i intend to go back. and random ppl, that too! :D

lena: i r'ber very little of my childhood... sometimes i r'ber it in spurts if i focus on that time... :D

keshi: me neither. it's friday. and i don't know what we're doing tomorrow! :D

alice: hehe... take it up na?

suma: let's not talk ages... ok?! :D i'm not getting any younger. and acc to preethi, i'm having a mid-life crisis. :(

sol: LOL!!! no no... i'm better. i don't want to marry a cat! :D

k3: these girls will hoot us off blog-ville if we do anything like that. but let's give it a shot, eh?! ;)

loca: pick it up na?!

Keshi said...

Preethi said...

Missed this somehow.. I seem to be really scatter brained these days.. losing track of everything :) Hey whats with you and cats? I agree with Dottie.. I think you were one in your last birth (do you morph into one in this one?)
