I *heart* Bombay (and well..Boston)

I'm urban..in the way other people are mountain-people or tunafish junkies. I love city life...something about dreary concrete blocks and grumpy people totally gets my juices flowing. Ergo, this will be a blog about me, my two favourite cities (Bombay and Boston), my addiction to Vietnamese coffee and my views on Gregorian chant and it's efficacy in curing some types of tympannic membrane rupture. Enjoy!

The year in review

1) Where did you begin 2007?
At Sanju and Shweta's drinking wine and entertaining my cousins.

2) What was your status by Valentine's Day?
Single as ever (but with a glimmer of romantic interest in the picture)

3) Were you in school (anytime this year)?
Hell, no!

4) How did you earn your money?
The old-fashioned way (flat on back, legs in air...kidding!). Changed jobs and cities this year.

5) Did you have to go to the hospital?
Thankfully not even for a kindly visit.

6) Did you have any encounters with the police?
A Hoysala cop winked at me once. Does that count?

7) Where did you go on vacation?
Coorg every weekend I could manage. Bombay for anything longer than just a couple of days.

My bed. The one who lies upon ut every night is considerably "under" Rs. 20000.

9) Did you know anybody who got married?
Yeah, couple of close friends.

10) Did you know anybody who passed away?
Not this year. Remarkably healthy year for the near and dear ones I guess.

12) Did you move anywhere?
Yes, to Bangalore from Bombay.

14) What concerts/shows did you go to?
Aerosmith, Alan Parson's Project

Sanjaya, I think I have a thing for gay Indian guys.

Stay resolutely single.

Watching my friends have their babies and seeing how happy they were.

21) What's something you learned?
The Intel compliance rules for all adverts. Yes, my life is that boring.

22.) Any new additions to your family?
My super-awesome brother-in-law.


23.) What was your best month?
January

24.) What music will you remember 2007 by?
My addiction to Elissa this whole year means it's been all about Lebanese music.

25) Who has been your best drinking buddy?
Sanju in Bombay and Nandini in Bangalore.

26) Made new friends?
I thought I did. I might be wrong.

27) Best new friend?
Nope, the ones I've had from the past are still tried and true.

Still my 30th birthday at Hawaiian Shack. So much fun.
