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!

An Engayging tag

A general lack of anything happening with my life (post festival blues) and a tag (yay!) from my friend Kris lead to this:

  • 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 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 will your reaction be?
    Dump the asshole. I''m not a forgiving type - and even if I took him back, I'd never be able to trust him again. Best to cut the strings and forget he even existed.
  2. If you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?
    To have a house on an island with my lover, 2 dogs and a VERY hot gardener.
  3. Whose butt would you like to kick?
    All the guys who have "types". Come on! Live a little...doesn't hurt to date someone who isn't "exactly" what you want. Maybe you'd even be surprised.
  4. What would you do with a billion dollars?
    Open up a club playing only 80's retro music and serving martinis. That will cost me about a million or so. Maybe I'd just drink the other 999 million away. Oh, and must save money for tummy tuck and Botox. (was going to say "get a boyfriend" but then Paul McCartney tapped me on the shoulder and reminded me that "Money can't buy me love").
  5. Will you u fall in love with your best friend?
    Yes. I have several times. Which is why I have neither lover nor best friend.
  6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?
    Oh totally being loved by someone...then you have the option of reciprocating - always keep the power reins in your hands.
  7. How long do you intend to wait for someone you really love?
    11.59 pm, Feb 1, 2009. Starting then, I'm just gonna settle for what I can get.
  8. If the person you secretly like is already attached, what would you do?
    Totally pray for them to break up. It's evil but sometimes you need divine intervention. Oh and excel at EVERYTHING the guys' partner doesn't do. And make sure the guy knows it.
  9. If you like to act with someone, who will it be? your gf/bf or an actress/actor?
    How about an actor who is my pretend boyfriend? I pick Kunal Kapoor.
  10. What takes you down the fastest?
    Being ignored by my friends.
  11. How would you see yourself in ten years time?
    On a chair at Jamuna Pai's clinic undergoing facelift Number 1.
  12. What’s your fear?
    Bald, fat and single at 40 watching all the twinks dancing at the GB party with a whiskey and water in my hand. Shudder.
  13. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
    Someone who refused to watch Mamma Mia with me. That says it all.
  14. Would you rather be single and rich or married but poor?
    Single and rich always. Money can't buy you love but it sure makes being single hurt less.
  15. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
    Hit snooze on the alarm and sleep some more. Oh, and check to make sure the undies are still on.
  16. Would you give all in a relationship?
    No. I would have said yes when I was an idealist and a romantic. But having been in a couple of relationships, I'd say never completely open up till you are absolutely sure (and get it in writing) that you're gonna be together forever. It's just not worth the humiliation otherwise.
  17. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously, who would you pick?
    The Deep Vik says the one who has more to offer emotionally. The shallow one says the one with the bubble butt.
  18. Would you forgive and forget no matter how horrible a thing the someone has done?
    Never. He's lucky I haven't put a hit on him yet!
  19. Do you prefer being single or having a relationship?
    Do you even have to ask. (Gets back to folding laundry and eating chips)
I tag Rambunctious Whippersnapper and VisualScribe.

    Aww, come on - I am/was really not in a mood to be being 'lent' some money by someone! ;)

    I stand single, watching all other men with a glass of whisky and soda at GB parties. Do I see my future written?

    And on your birthday, things are going to really change, aren't they?

    See both until one finds out - then pick the other one!

    that was a nice post!

    A nice post? Yes. It should be eye-opening
    Because of your answer to 16,
    attempting an answer to 17 is superficial and you might reconsider 19 if 12 is what you do not want to happen. But since 11 is your aspiration you might just end up like that,
    all because of 16.

    Come on Vikster! Who cares about billions of dollars or any other question on this list?

    You're really funny. Understandably, while we laugh at the fun you've poked at your life, I'm sure you beg to differ but it's these anecdotes and musings of every day life that make it better to go on...and best when shared. Love the way your mind works! I love you better than Adrian Mole! Hehe.
