So, how was your day?

I always have been known for being exceptionally clumsy. For instance, while climbing up the stairs, I have a propensity for placing only one-third of my actual foot on the stair, so that more likely than not, I tip backwards with my arms flailing in the air, while the person behind me steadies me with great amusement. (Luckily, there's always been someone behind me for me to amuse). Also, I am the only one I know of who is capable of falling up the stairs on a regular basis. Yes, I said up the stairs. Every time this happens, I'm left incredulous as to how exactly I managed this feat yet again...

But this is too much.

I've not done anything funny for quite a while now, so fate decides to go ahead and help things along. So here I am, busily sitting at work with my ass firmly planted in a chair (you know, the rotating swiveling kinds) and I lean back to relax, when my chair decides to have a nervous breakdown. Seriously... it had a breakdown and I sure was nervous when it happened... With a series of groaning noises, it disintegrated in a matter of 4 seconds, broke into 3 pieces, all the while swiveling and rotating, and the next thing I know I find myself in a heap on the floor, to the delight of the whole office and the concern of my fellow intern. As I'm helped up, the office assistant wanders by and comments that we interns always read together, work together, so might we by any chance be sitting on the same chair at the same time? And the guy obviously thinks he's a hoot, since he runs all around the office and repeats the wondrous comment to one and all. Rubbing it in, I must say...

For once I do a tag without actually being tagged... Here ya go :D

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 5 people to do this quiz and those who are tagged cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by and cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by. Continue this game by sending it to other people.

1. If your lover betrayed you what would your reaction be?
Eat a lot of chocolate. Burst out crying occasionally. Give him quite an earful. Sleep an awful lot. Worry the people who care about me to death and in time, tell him to go stick his head in a pizza oven.

2. Whose butt would you like to kick?
Crazy-ass terrorists, religious fanatics and people who call me by sappy nicknames when they hardly know me.

3. What would you do with a billion dollars?
Hide it away so noone knows about it. Then find a nice guy who has not a clue about it and marry him. Then of course, nice house, big pool, 3 dogs, a sexy bike. Oh and before all that, invest a chunk of it, start a band, travel the world, all that jazz; stuff I’ve always wanted to do…

4. Will you fall in love with your best friend?
At the moment, my answer would be never, though the prospect sounds lovely.

5. Which is more blessed: loving someone or being loved by someone?
Being loved. It gives you the security that you will not stumble, and if you do, someone will try to break your fall. Makes you feel that you’re not alone and you never will be. Makes you feel good about yourself in a way you never thought you would. And a lot more senti clich├ęd stuff… Hey loving has a helluva lot of perks too though..

6. How long would you wait for someone you love?
Not a crazily long period of time like in Veer Zaara or anything. I’m romantic and all but I'm the most impatient person I’ve ever seen… I’d whine a lot and throw tantrums but probably jump off the wagon in a few years tops, but no way more than that. I guess. How would I know?

7. If the person you like is secretly attached, what would you do?
I’d secretly get over it.

8. What takes you down the fastest?
Thinking and going over things again and again and again.. Unfortunately it’s one of the things I do best and very often...

9. Where do you see yourself in 10 years' time?
Hopefully with a big lovable Labrador of my own. Oh and I’ll be writing, still blogging, in touch with all my friends and having lost some weight… Sigh…

10. What's your fear?
Being alone. No, not literally.

11. Would you rather be single and rich or married and poor?
Married and poor. Absence of something to share everything with would make life a little hollow and boring, would be my guess.

12. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously who would you pick?
Once would be a huge ordeal. A double dose would most probably kill me.

13. Would you give all in a relationship?
Not “all”. But quite a bit, depending on the kind of relationship..

14. What's eating you now?
People that are not supposed to matter but do, irritation at having to get up early, worry about grades (yeah yeah…) and the fact that I have not enough time to do all the things I want to.

15. Tag 5 people...
Another Brick in the Wall (who I don’t think has ever done a tag)

Sindhu (who usually doesn’t even need an excuse to blog :P )

Indiegurl (who is sure to do something funny even in such an unfunny tag)

Adhirath (to kick him awake)

AB (to wake her up as well)

Make me proud :P

Ati Sundar

A new character to add to the nonsense that is my life.. Here's introducing S!

Me: Why the long hair? Don’t you think it looks very hippie-ish?

S: That’s the whole point...

Me: So u want to look like a person who drinks a lot and dances naked around fires...?

S: I want to be that person... Unfortunately can't do that .. so the least I can do is look like one.

Me: Why cant you do that? Don’t let society stop you man.. You dance as much as you want… You already drink a lot anyway…

S: When I dance naked, people throw stones…

Me: If you keep doing it, they might get used to it and throw a few coins at you instead… Alternative income even... See, shyness is never the answer.

S: I’m not shy ... Just don’t want my boys to get hurt by the stone throwing.

Me: Never heard of dodge ball? Thats training given during school days for wannabe hippies like you… Helps protect the boys as you say.

S: Didn’t play it. Was always lazy. Used to drink milkshake and sleep then. Drink beer and sleep now.

Me: Well mankind is better off without a naked you... all for the best then.
