Tag of War

Got tagged by Bullshee. At least it put my brain cells to some sort of work. So here's 8 things/people I'm grateful to

1. My family...for finding inventive ways of waking me up in time for office everyday. Whether it's my mom waking me up with horror stories of how we're not getting water in our area AGAIN or my dog who wants my cheek to check how wet his nose feels today or my sister who teaches my niece to exercise lung power by yelling "Khala....Wake up!!!"...I thank you all

2. The toothbrush.....for just existing and ensuring that I do have a social life after all

3. Alcoholic shots....for being the only reason any one has ever told me I look beautiful

4. The car....if it wasn't for you, I would've walked to E block market which is precisely 20 meters from my gate and actually shed some of the excess weight....wouldn't want a situation when I'm actually thin would we?

5. My company's IT system...Thanks for ensuring I can sleep another 30 mins after reaching office by ensuring I get the slowest comp in the world which takes long enough to flash my mailbox

6. LC and Timster....for teaching me the art of being able to hold a one way conversation for a min of 40 min and allowing the other person to pipe in a "hmmm" exactly twice in the midst of this exercise. (I have been at the receiving end many many times)

7. Ekta Kapoor....For truly being appreciative of my eyesight and giving me reason to turn off the television

8. Mandy Miller....For introducing me to the world of Harry Potter....and then giving it up herself!

9. Om Book store....For selling books at twice the price available everywhere else and then laughing at my expense (pun intended)

10. Benetton....For repeatedly encouraging me to lose weight by making sure they make nothing in my size

Ok so overshot that by 2 but I am like this only! Passing on the tag to Nutty, Kolly, Ruchi and anyone else who's name ends in a phonetic "ee"

Have just returned from a weekend in Pondicherry. So worth blogging (if only a post dedicated to the annoying driver we took) but too late in the night to do it now....so till next time....

Hain!! What this is ? Why the list is to be missing chocolate ? How can anyone NOT be thankful for chocolate ? Dont you like chocolate ? Chocolate is yum yum. Give me chocolate. I like dark chocolate. It seems I also enjoy typing chocolate. Chocolate.

"Alcoholic shots....for being the only reason any one has ever told me I look beautiful"

lol. I like that one. 'Beautiful' is one of the easiest words that come to mind when you're drunk (and you're a guy). 'Pretty' seems petty and 'Wonderful' has too less vowels.

Isn't that what alcohol was invented for? :)

I've heard of ladies getting sentimental on hearing this word when the guy is not drunk (I was not involved there; spare me).

chronicwriter said...

came here from bulshee's blog... pondycherry? no wonder.. keep posting and do hop down to my blog too sometime

rebel said...

Well nice list.. I think anyone in this whole wide world would be thankful for alcohol shots! I am, I am , I definitely am!

And thanks, for visiting my blog :)

Zee said...

cool....very funny ha ha ha

shool....await!

nice new guy...how come only men come up with the word? hmmmm

chronic writer....yes sir will do!

rebel...join the club!

Still searching said...

Hehehe.. I agree, the alcoholic shots were the funniest!

And wait, why do men only come up with the word beautiful?! Uh, becoz its odd to say "You're a beautiful man"?!

Nice New Guy said...

zee: still-searching:

It's not about only men coming up with the word. The word comes up FOR a lady.
(Hint: A lady could come up with that word for her girlfriend....)
(Nice New Guy whistles and walks away before anyone could make sense of that...) ;-)

Princess Banter said...

With regards to your Benetton note, I do thank The Gap for misleading us into thinking we're actually skinny because of their so-called "vanity sizes." It truly does help shopping there after a bad bad bad day!
