till then, to remind y'all that i aint dead yet. and to feel good abt life!
compliments received and r'bered:
you somehow manage to retain your friends, friendships and professional relationships despite being competitive to the point of cut-throat. i wish i could be like that.

(alas. not true anymore!)
you're one of the most secure people i've known. and i love that about u.
(dewdrop in london.)
i didn't realize it while working with you - but you're the best boss i could have ever had!
how can you be so clear about what you want to do with your life?
(an ex-friend. ages ago)
i've always admired your sanity, levelheadedness and the discipline to not spread out your emotions in a weak moment. it's extremely rare.
(one of the nicest things i've heard about me. said by someone whose opinion matters.)
there's a lot you can learn from her.
(suruchi to another colleague who was thinking of sharing a house with me)
there's still hope for her. seeing you reassures me.
(my bhabhi in austin, on realizing that her daughter has my eating habits.)
you keep me sane.
(vibs. on mail.)
b'bay will never be the same without you.

(suruchi to her mom, explaining why advika has my habits. and knowing how much she loves me and advika, it IS a compliment)
you know what to say and when
you're the best friend one could have.
