Her Looks, TheGirlAtFirstAvenue

Tags are no fun I tell ya!

January 28, 2012
Okay so I am struggling to write a decent post here. My mind has been blissfully blank today because I am *slightly* sick. All I want to do right now is curl up on my bed and go to sleep, so this post might be a tad boring and devoid of my usual dry sarcastic humor.I got tagged by Ki from Dressing up for life sometime back. I am not really good with tags (meaning : I get too lazy and I don’t do them at all!). I don’t like doing the ‘7 random things about myself’ because let’s face it – after doing it thrice, its boring as hell. Every post of mine has random titbits about me – so haven’t we all had enough of the randomness?

**But I do appreciate all the awards and tags that you pass on to me. Yes I really do!**

Anyway this tag is different. Ki came up with a few questions that I am supposed to answer. I am also supposed to write random stuff about myself and tag 11 people. Which *obviously* I am not going to do. Someone please change the rules!

Or just break them, like I did. Yeah I am a wild child.

1. Paperback or e book reader?

2. Skirts or pants?
I am more of a skirts person!

3. Coke or Pepsi?
Honestly, they taste the same to me! *hides face* But i’ll go with coke because sometimes I find pepsi to be a bit sweeter. Is that the difference? 

4. Summer or winter?
Winter in India. Summer in Europe. That’s perfect life according to me.
5. If you had to learn a foreign language which one would it be?
Probably Spanish and/or French

6. What is your comfort food?
Surprisingly nothing. There is no particular food item that I crave for when i am upset. Nor is there any particular item that I can manage to eat when offered at any hour of the day! 
Which is good in a way.. ‘coz I don’t believe in using food for ‘comfort’. 
I know, I know.. sorry to be a spoil sport but I just can’t stand being addicted to anything. 

7. Which fashion trend would you never wear?
Snakeskin probably. I get the feeling that there are snakes slithering all over my body. Creepy!

8. What is your dream job?
I am yet to figure that out! Probably something with the combination of writing + travelling + photography. Or maybe even blogging 😉 ‘Coz am spending a lot more time here than at my ‘actual job’.

9. Which is the next place you would like to travel to?
Ohhh.. this is tough! Either Greece or Spain.

10. What are your wardrobe staples?
I am going to give a very boring answer by saying skinny jeans.

11. Who is your most favourite person in the whole world?
Me! 😉 
Jeans – UMM
Grey tee – H&M
Cardi – Top shop
Shoes – Catwalk
Necklace and bangles – Accessorize

Non-Indian readers, am sure you wouldn’t be interested in this. Its a (short) review of a recently released Hindi movie – Agneepath.

Watched Agneepath this weekend. I am not going to write a full fledged review here.. so here’s the gist. Hrithik Roshan was fabulous as usual. Another brilliant performance. I loved Rishi Kapoor’s role and character. He is one brilliant actor! Sanjay Dutt is the scariest villian I have ever seen in my life. I can still hear Kancha’s booming and absolutely frightening laughter in my head. To play such a role, build such a body and act with such finese at his age – I salute that actor! I have no idea what Priyanka Chopra was doing in that film. She opened a stupid chinese beauty parlor and that’s about it.

I liked the first half. But the second half really dragged on. At one point I was ready to scream “Kill him already!!! And get it over with so that I can get out and go eat!!”. But he din’t kill. He just dragged it on and on. Literally. (Watch the movie and you’ll understand). So I simply walked out during the last 15-20min and had some yummy cake. Yes I walked out of a film. This is a first for me!

Like what you read?

    & btw, Indian cinema is interesting for non-indians as well (especially those of us whose older brothers are studying Indian Studies & convince their little sisters to watch every Indian film they can get their hands on… Just sayin' :))

    hope you are feeling a bit better- for not being well, you did an outstanding post!! Liked those questions (and your answers very well)- it said alot about you- forinstance the 'comfort food'- the fact you don't have one does show in your excellent body type. Also, I loved your answer to the final question-that your favorite person is YOU- very very good answer!!
