The ABC of Y: Untag

I have been tagged by so many people for so many things that I have forgotten who tagged me with this one - but I have decided to do it because it is simple and comprehensive and obviates the need for doing the other tags ( The Eight Questions, Twenty Questions, Thousand Questions, etc.). I hereby Untag myself from all other tags, because there's no way I will ever catch up! Sorry, Parul, Kiran, Dipali, Sango and whoever else tagged me in the last two months!

A -Available? Ummm....just try asking anyone who calls me on my cellphone. The answer would be no.

B-Best friend: A Beautiful Girl called Richa. We are so connected that we got the same tattoo years back - independently of each other. Freaky!

C-Cake or Pie? Definitely Chocolate Cake. And Apple Pie. Damn!

D-Drink of choice: A cold large Orange Juice. In my drinking days, it would be that bloody Mary .

E-Essential thing used everyday: I'm using it right now. I mean my laptop, of course.

F-Favourite colour: Buh-lue! I love the color of the sky on a bright day.

G-Gummi bears or worms: Never tried either. Don't really want to.

H-Hometown: Delhi ...butI lowe Bangalore more.

I-Indulgence:Any form of sweet. Chocolates. Moti Choor ke Laddoos. Kaju ki barfi. Cake. You get the picture.

January or February:Oh definitely February. The most beautiful month in the year.

K-Kids and names: One number, Peanut.

L-Life:Is better than ever.

M-Marriage date:February. Didn't I tell you it's a beautiful month?

N-Number of siblings: Two

O-Oranges or apples: Don't you know they can't be compared? An orange on a winter day, in the sun. An Apple, to snack on in the middle of a workday. Workday? What's that?

P-Phobias: None, really. But yes. If I never saw another lizard again, I wouldn't miss it.

Q-Quote: Educated Children Are Never Bored. My mom irritated the hell out of me by using this whenever I said this in my childhood. Can't wait to use it on Peanut. In fact, I think I'll go and tell her this right now.

R-Reason to smile: My Family. And Friends. Music. A good book. How boring. Oh, but educated children...

S-Season: I'm Only Happy When It Rains.

T-Tag three people:NO! Everyone has already done this tag!

U-Unknown fact about me:Hmmm. Lemme think. Oh, ok. I have claimed I don't know how to cook, but I actually can (but rarely do), because my husband taught me in the first year of our marriage. We had fun making dinner together after work - regular dal, sabzi, rotis. My rotis are still never round, but they swell up real nice - and my alu paranthas are truly awesome. Just ask Vijay.

V-Vegetable you do not like: Karela, bloody hell! Zareena made it for my mother in law recently, and we both nearly choked on it.

W-Worst habit: Blowing things out of proportion.

X-x-rays you have had: All sorts. This is a really dumb question. But to the creator's credit, what else begins with X? Wait, what about eX boyfriends? That would have been better, no?

Y-Your favorite food:Oh come on, 'Y' for 'Your favourite food'? Clearly, the creator got bored by this time! LOOK, I LIKE CAKE! NOW GO AWAY!

Z-Zodiac: Aquarius. Can you tell? Whatever!

Never before has a tag been done so gracelessly! But yayyy....untag! Go on, untag yourself, it's liberating!


  1. I think that's just what I'll do with whatever I'm tagged with next!

  2. Loved the answer to the tags, Y. Just to clarify - while in school (Lawrence School, Lovedale), we had this teacher called Miss Hensman (Hennie, as she was fondly called by one and all, behind her back, of course, God bless her soul). She was this dimunitive person with a powerful presence and an even more powerful British accent! Whenever one of the children said "Miss, I am bored" - she would look down her nose at the child and say "Educated persons are never bored". So it is not my quote at all - just a re-quote - or a 'forward' in today's language!

  3. S-Season....im only happy...shirley manson "garbage"...nice


  4. Another Aquarian who likes chocolate cake and sky blue and does tags with little grace? Ok, noted.

    Glad I revisited your blog today. Came here once before, a long time ago, when you wrote about Dr. Ugre. The same Dr. Ugre who has achieved immortality as Dr. Ugli - on your blog, at least.


Hi there. Go on, say it. Well? WELL?
