Just for fun!!

A post that i spent least amount of time on.
A post that was a lot of fun
A post that i think i've done before on Ryze on Caferati- the writers' forum
A post that i found on Pal's Blog today that inspired me to do it all over again............. 

These are the guidelines:

Lie, sound, colour, number, etc. [a light exercise]

Line 1 – Write down something that happened this morning. But make it an out and out downright lie.
Line 2 – In the spirit of 1 – write a sentence with a sound in it.
Line 3 – Write a sentence with a colour in it.
Line 4 – Write a sentence with a number in it.
Line 5 – Write a sentence with a character from a book in it
Line 6 – Write a sentence with an animal in it.
Line 7 – Write a sentence with an emotion in it.
Line 8 – Write a sentence to do with the past, present or future.

You might want to go away, write it, cut and paste it. But write it quickly! Go for the first things that come into your head. But by all means do a little work on the finished result. The result may not be great poetry – but hey, it should be fun.

Here is what i managed to churn out.....................

As i was out on morning walk, came upon a Rolex watch lying abandoned
Ding Dong rang the bells in my head...
White and adorned with beautiful little diamonds
Without a second glance, i leaned over to touch it
Like Jughead drooling over a burger, i oggled at this beauty
Without a pause, like a rabbit, i hopped away
The joy and excitement within me knew no bounds
The dream i had last night was now a reality, and i needed no more!!

Go ahead, do this tag...  its fun , isnt it?

Gender bender

Mayuri and Gils tagged me- My Sins against Gender-Stereotypes... All I am supposed to do is reveal all those things I am/have done in my life, which as a girl I am not supposed/expected to do.

So here goes..................................  

  • I dont like shopping- window or otherwise,spending few hours going from one shop to other,or riding up and down the escalator in malls for nothing. I usually go to malls to catch a movie or if i want something specific from a specific store... I cant just wander about staring at stuff, i get bored and go out of my mind... 
  • I enjoy talking to guys more than girls, and this has been happening all my life. I seem to connect better with them, and share more common interests with guys. Apart from books and music, i totally dig talking about gadgets, gizmos, cars, bikes and games...For the life of me, cant gush over jewellery or shoes...
  • I was always the one girl in a gang of guys - be it going on long drives, or out for some adventure... i never felt out of place, or odd in their company.... 
  • One of my best friends is a guy I've known since 3rd standard... he lived close-by and was the one who came over, spent time with me when i had a fall and home recuperating from the accident... 
  • I hate cooking and I cook only when I am left with no choice. I hate all those things that women are supposed to do, like cleaning, cooking, washing etc.
  • I have been a book worm and music freak since my junior school days... I can spend hours over books, tripping on music, and when travelling, walking about the streets, exploring new places... Also enjoy chilling out with friends, teasing and pulling each others' legs.. Been told am a Good SPORT!!
  • Have always been fond of sports - Started with the skipping rope, went on to volleyball, Atari and then PC games, PlayStation, and now Wii based.. most fond of Racing, Strategy, golf and other such intriguing ones.... ofcourse, i also stay glued to the TV when a cricket match is on, especially where my team Aussies are playing... I can be found exchanging comments with friends either on Sms or over the phone...
  • I take quick showers and take less than 5mins in getting ready ... No staring at the mirror for hours, asking people for their opinion , etc...  I hate spending too much time in dressing up!! 
  •  You wont find me searching for fancy clothes or girlie things on the net. Am most likely to be reading about a new phone in the market or something techy....
  • No make up for me thank you!! Simple eye liner and lip balm/gloss is all i need... and a splash of perfume!! Have never bought a single bottle of perfume, its always been gifts from friends and family... 
  • Call me a geek, a wierdo, i dont care!! Yes, i admit, i am a tech-junky. I probably know as much if not more than most guys around...I am the handy[wo]man at home, and can fix just about anything- electric or otherwise.... And if i dont know something, i aint gonna goof up by showing off...
  • Am crazy about watches as well, not buying, but reading about them, and collecting snippets from magazines, net, newspapers... 
  • I have no qualms talking to strangers, i can go upto anyone and ask anything that i wish to... be it if the train was coming on time, to the book they were reading to a gizmo in their hand!! 
  • I do like cooking, but dont expect me to cook an elaborate traditional spread everyday. Am more the experiment and try new things everyday....
  • I have to mention this - i CANT stand the colour Pink or anything to do with it... am a BLUE person through and through!!! 
That was fun................... Am not gonna tag anyone specific, but if you like taking a break and looking for ideas for a blogpost.. feel free! :)
