of love... and life

i read somewhere:
"every woman has exactly that love life, that she had decided in her mind, when she was 12 years old"

as far as i can remember.. when i was 12, i had no love life in mind. but the nearest i can think to that age... was when i wanted a guy who would love me a lot, who would be smart & witty and who would have a walk-in closet to house my shoes. i would also have preferred it if he had a horse.

well, other than the horse, i got it all, then!

i was tagged by trish to post 7 random things abt me.
i'm not sure there are 7 such things after 3 years of blogging that regulars here don't know... but it's been a while, i've been tagged, so i shall attempt it.
for the rules, go here.

i. i can switch between immature, child-like girl to wise old woman within seconds.

ii. when i'm not actively involved in a conversation, i almost always look indifferent to what's going on. this may, or may not be true. in any case, you won't be able to figure it out!

iii. i amaze myself with my knowledge of bollywood. i did not know that i knew all of sunita rao's songs or how many movies called pehchaan were released and when. i still don't think i'm THAT interested in this knowledge, but well...

iv. i don't like a lot of ppl. but at the same time, i believe that every individual has something exceptionally good in/about them. i can focus on this good, and get along with almost anybody if i need to.

v. the first time i was reprimanded for something, i was 20 years old. that day, i also got a piece of advice which still helps me. i was told "you need to be very thick-skinned to survive in advertising/media. but don't lose your sensitivity. it'll take you very far. i can see that." i'm not in touch with the prof who said that. but his words remain with me. always will.

vi. it takes very little to make me very happy. i believe i'm a happy person, in general. there are very few days that i am in a funk. and i think i'm rather nice to be around.

vii. i love drifting off. and i find silences comforting. at the same time, i love the "life" of a city. i am still trying to figure out if i'm a city girl or a country. maybe, i'm a bit of both.

there i go. i don't know 7 ppl who haven't done this, and ppl i tag don't necessarily do the tags. so well, if you want to do this, pls feel free to pick it up.

video of the week

for lack of a substantially entertaining post, here's hoping you like the video and the song.
this used to be one of my faves a long time ago... forgot it in the commercialization of self.

p.s.: for those of you who can't see the video *it depends on the country you login from, i guess...* it's Heer by Sandeep Chowta, featuring Sukhwinder Singh.

run, but you can't hide

vin recently got onto FB. i very promptly went and edited my profile to say "married to..."
but of course, FB wanted a confirmation from vin...
a couple hours later, i get a mail from vin
"FB is asking me to confirm you're my wife. i am not confirming."

later in the evng, when i asked him why... he merrily says i don't want to publicly associate with you. why am i not given the option of "i have nothing to do with her"?


me: dewey thinks that when she comes over, you'll leave us both at the airport and escape. you won't, right?
vin: i would WANT to, but knowing you, you'll get home before i do. then you'll break my legs and skin me... so i won't be able to run, and i will have no hide.


p.s.: yes, he's still alive. how else will he pay for his wit?
