Reflections on Reality!

Quirky Me

There is a silent ma blog. More silent than me..I used to call her “dove”. She reads..evaluates..appreciates and even constructively criticizes. One person who makes me feel that all i write is not crap! So recently she told me – you have cynicism topping all those dishes! Try a different flavour.. I was wondering what I’ll write! When Vimmuu tagged me with this quirky one! The 6 quirky things about me!!!I guess that helped in one way..but grrrr things that I never let out has to be out now?? This guy sure gonna get frm me! Nyways lemme start.

Chocolate – I have this strange feeling that ‘chocolate is my secret mentor’. Many a times if I’m depressed or feel lonely..or detested I would buy the biggest darkest chocolate possible..hideously eat it bit by bit..and think whatever my problem is – has been resolved! Trust me Im so addicted that in supermalls i steal glances at the chocolate section as a 3 yr old and my hubby often knocks my head to the opposite direction. The best is when we discuss about financial difficulties and get low and I walk out and get “temptation rum and raisins” devour it to the last piece and dispose the cover without ma hubby getting to know of it ;P

PS: I have had 4 ‘root canals’, 5th one is pending. & Ma hubby seriously thinks I’d run away with the guy who buys a big packet of chocolates for me ;P

Visitors – In my village it was a custom that when elders/visitors came we children/girls vanish into the inner rooms or kitchens and appear only when called for. So somehow when someone visits us..i get into the kitchen with the pretext of cooking for them and never come out unless it becomes highly necessary. This includes friends with whom I would have otherwise chatted/talked with! Guess many of them have felt that they should start the ‘aquaintance’ all over again!

Food – I somehow never..ever cook for myself. Whenever ma hubby has stayed far. I have relied on bread..biscuits and cold coffee. Even Maggi I hate to cook.not even parcels from hotel! Eby is positive that I’d starve myself to death If he’s not around. So i guess you know who to get hold of just incase I die mysteriously and reports show lack of proper intake of food!

Sleep – I need to sleep first!! or I just dont sleep! If by anychance my hubby dozed off before me..I’ll try all tricks possible to wake him up. But if he doesnt wake up from the deep slumber I dont sleep!..Guess it came from the childhood thoughts of “me first!!!”

Vegetarianism – None in my family or in-laws are vegetarian.. I dont know from where I got it. But I got it real seriously..To the extent that even somethng lurking far from the boundary of meat I wouldnt have it! Mushroom since it gives you a ‘meatish feel to ur teeth’ is a no no! Soya beans – a complete no and.paneer well if you make it at home and crush it then fine..but the hard ones you get at hotels  – Nope! For some vegetarians its the smell..the idea..but for me i guess it is how it feels between my teeth!

New people! – I always flounder when i meet a new person..esp guys! The greatest problem is when someone starts with my name! I have one name official and the other personal. So netime a person asks my name! I’d blabber not knowing which one to tell. Im sure he’d flee in the next 5 mins! That scorpion friend for whom i wrote the poetry rewrote the rule by calling aloud my full name – (19 characters) and?? I fled from there ;P.  It takes a lifetime of analysis and stuff to get close to a person…and that doesnt seriously mean I’d talk! I can count the number of times I have ‘talked’ to friends that I consider the closest to my heart.

Some others..And yeah no matter how calm..poised and simple i look while visitors are at home..or when i meet new people..the moment its just me and eby i “jump like a 6 yrs old if the visitors brought chocolates along..and imitate the new person’s mannerisms which often gets wide applaude and appreciation (solely from Eby – coz no one else has till date been an audience! ;P)

So who do i tag? Praddy, Smitha, Scorpria, Kartz, Jo, Mary Kaufman.

I have this strange “starting problem”. The first hello, first handshake, first comment never comes from me!! I usually just don’t face this while writing or for that matter typing but I think its passing around these days! my starting problem! So priya just helped (kick-started) me by tagging I should say. So let me step into the world of words! By the way verbivore is someone who devours words..not necessarily someone to pen out stuffs! So dnt ya laugh at me for my choice of a name!


RULE #1 People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

RULE #2 Tag 6 people to do this quiz and they cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by, cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by, and must continue this game by sending it to other people.

So here goes!

  1. If your lover betrayed you, what will your reaction be?
    Would’ve committed suicide !! 😉 That explains Eby’s folly in marrying me! well he propagated non-violence then! Guess the non part fell off after marriage!
  2. If you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?
    To travel around the world!
  3. Whose butt would you like to kick?

      Not priyas..but probably someone related! ;P

Well I don’t think me and Noori have that kind of taste!!!



6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?Can one survive without the other?

7. How long do you intend to wait for someone you really love?
Endless. I’ve been trained by my brother to wait for endless hours just to get a ride in his “Royal Enfield”

8.If the person you secretly like is already attached, what would you do?
Would just not dare to! Coz I know how I’ll treat Eby’s secret lover. Or should it be how I’ll kill?

9.If you like to act with someone, who will it be? Your Gf/Bf or an actress/actor?
Hrithik Roshan!!! sigh! I’m out of breathe! Can’t talk anymore ;P

10. What takes you down the fastest?
Conversation with someone above or outside my circle. My blood drains and my heart just rushes to some safe corner beneath the earth and pulls a cover over!

11. How would you see yourself in ten years’ time?
You are asking a lady this! Well 5 years older!

12. What’s your fear?
Befriending someone who doesn’t care for friendship.

13.What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
A pretty, sensible young lady! Now! before you go searching for her – she’s engaged!

14. Would you rather be single and rich or married but poor?
Married and poor – you can’t expect a Libran to stay single!

15.What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
Pray that I should not see anything worse as soon as I wake up! Dunno why, I always wake up scared to death!

16. Would you give all in a relationship?
Depends on the relationship!! 😉

17. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously, who would you pick?
The one who gives me more chocolates ;P that was how I answered all my relatives questions as to which of my 2 brothers i like better.

18. Would you forgive and forget, no matter how horrible a thing that special someone has done?
Unfortunately yes! Whenever my husband comes up with a long list of atrocities I’ve done against him! I go speechless coz of this damned lack of memory!

19. If you get to go back in time and fall in love all over again, would it still be with the same person? (Original question: What are your three most important expectations in love?)
Yes but I’ll make him buy a bike first! ;P
