Abhishek said...

Said 'I love you' and meant it....?
who was da lucky 1?

Abhishek said...

tell u what...i am really bugged of orkut!!!

Abhishek said...

really gave me surprises

The_Girl_From_Ipanema said...

hi abhishek!
hehe, the lucky one...does it have to be a person??? ;)

and about orkut-yeah, the networking idea is great, but beyond that, i just find it silly.

greensatya said...

Holy Moly!! You did not steal the list. I had actually asked you all to do it :)

But you have done so many interesting things. Why having pictures in newspaper is so bad? :P

Sky diving was there for you. And I can see the exclamation added to 68.

Ineteresting is the fact that few things many people would have done, so it is there in the list. LIke "stealing a sign", I so much want to have one of those street signs "STOP", "No Entry", those kind of with me. :)

qsg said...

Lajjo, kisko bola? Aur kiska dil toda??? I have read the Iliad and the Odyssey! :p
eaten fried green tomatoes...really?

greensatya said...

If I am correct about what 'Abhishek' means then he should read 110 along with 08. hehe (black humour, jk)

And ladies as much Ipanema wanted to have an exotic name, you all gave her a total Indian name 'lajjo' :P

qsg said...

@greensatya: Lajjo is exotic too - for some nationality it is foreign and exotic! :)

Lajjo... woh amoeba kahaan gaya???

greensatya said...

Lajjo... woh amoeba kahaan gaya???

Yeah, this sounds so exotic. I am in splits.ho ho ho

The_Girl_From_Ipanema said...

hehe. i just used the word "Stole" for effect. :)
thanks for vouching for my honeshty.

Why having pictures in newspaper is so bad?
Gosh, i dunno why. In my mind it only is associated with doing something bad. Like "The Girl From Ipanema caught spitting in her irritating lab-mate's tubes!!!"

You first talk about 60, then we shall talk about 68. :)

Funny, that sign thing. You can buy some like that, y'know..

The_Girl_From_Ipanema said...

mere bajoo waala ki billi se bola.
aur fir bajoo waala ka dil toda.

ROFL about the amoeba. :))

I read abridged versions of Iliad ..but never the whole potha...
Fried Green Tomatoes are a big thing in the South. Come here, I'll treat you to some yummy ones.

The_Girl_From_Ipanema said...

And satya is right, tum logon ne mera accha khaasa naam ka waat laga diya. :(

qsg said...

bajoo wale ka dil toda...because uski billi said #8 too to you???

@greensatya: asking about amoeba is exotic? :p Filed for future use! ;)

Prashanth said...

D&D stands for Dungeons and Dragons... girls these days! Always burying their noses in cultures of bacteria or something like that! When was the last time you just sat down with friends and played a fun board game for 6 hours straight?

The_Girl_From_Ipanema said...

hahaha actually uske baad bajoo waale ka darwaaza toda.

tu aa gaya bacchu. i don't play games with little kids, i'll just say. ;)

greensatya said...

No no no, 'lajjo' is better name than your Ipanema . So even we can start using it, can't we ?

Kaafi thod phod mach raha hai yahan!! poor baju waala, 110 ho gaya uske saath!!

The_Girl_From_Ipanema said...

oye satya!
NO WAY. only people with atleast two X-chromosomes can use that.

/glares at the girl gang for bhanda fodofying

greensatya said...

Gender discrimination as usual !! So much for democracy and equality

The_Girl_From_Ipanema said...

ha ha ha . equality is a myth.
women have always been better! :-)

Sayesha said...

Allah! Kitni lambi list hai!! :O

Chal tera thoda sa vulnerable side nazar toh aaya :)

The Smiling Girl said...

Lajjo ji.. I like the 08, 52, 110 waale.. iske upar ek aur discussion ho jaye? ;)

The Smiling Girl said...

Oh.. already yahan shuru hua?? Acha tikh hain.. main waha shuru karungi... ;)

Nirwa said...

Hmmm.. interesting lizzsshhthtthhh.. I think I will steal this from you! :P :P :P Sounds interesting! :D

Perspective Inc. said...

What a list!!
So much pressure to make life even more interesting and glamorous!!(notice the use of words "even more")

Rebellion said...

How did I miss you post Lajjo??
That too THIS ONE??
Which shows such a nice, sweet and vulnerable side of you :)

Nice list, even I kinda match you on many things that you wanna do too! But thodi badi thi.. Esp coz I could see the stars & bold words less and the not applicable points more :P

Likho likho Lajjo,
Aise aur bohot se posts likho,
Aap hamein aaj kal khush kar rahe hai :D

Take care,

qsg said...

equality is a myth, women have always been better

waah waah kya line hai...waah waah...chha gaye tussi! ;)

Duhita said...

We further understand what lajjoji is all abt:)

//Taken a trip in a hot air balloon
//Watched a meteor shower

I'm so jealous!!!

satish said...

doubt!! :-s

107. Held someone while they were having a flashback

how?? wow?? wen?? why?? WHAT???

Janefield said...

2 mach, 3 much, why...150 mach!!! Surprising to see this lajjo opening up her *heart* and letting us all in on her skeletons in the closet!!

This list is made for stealing!!! (Jane's writer's block vanishes :D)

Born a Libran said...

And here I was thinking you had a shocking tinge of really short orange hair (post mundan) or something... All that imagery gone to shambles by 146 and 147... Bahut lambi list hai... Will read it in spells...

Andy E. said...

Would highly recommend nos. 9, 23, 29, 57, and 85 to add to your *ed list. I envy you for 33 and 83 (why don't guys get flowers?) and as for 53, was it on a dare, like when a friend dared you to walk up to someone else's table at a restaurant, sit down and eat something, or you just happened to be eating with people you didn't know?

My guess is D&D stands for dungeons and dragons. Seems to cast a spell over the types that do play it.

The_Girl_From_Ipanema said...

beats your post lengths, eh?

I was waiting for my detail-hungry girl-friends to pounce. :) Details are in here too.. it's got to do with a cat and such.

steal on , steal on.

pressure indeed. hehehe even more, yeah. the life i lead is quite glamourous like that. ;)

lo, tu bhi aa gayi. hazaar sawaal poochne. the post is meant to be taken in an as-is-where-is condition. No questions asked!

we are on top of things like that,

meteor shower- was beautiful. Mind you, I have chased 3 or 4 showers in my life and finally caught one where I actually saw some action.
Hot air balloon..yes, recommended.

No doubts allowed. One must read and go away quietly. ;)

steal on, baby. that i expected from you. Kaaavvvvv.......errrrr :)
skeletons are fighting with each other in Lajjo had to let em out. ;)

the hair is orange indeed, and it's not even dyed or coloured. We are like that only.

WIll hug a tree today. Have thought about asking out a stranger.....and yes, we girls have some privileges. ;) altho it's not unheard of, a guy getting flowers. ..i see nothing wrong..
I have approached strangers and asked to sit with them when 1) the place was full or it was the only table outside, for example. 2) while travelling and it seems like the person would be conducive to a chit-chat. No dares.

The_Girl_From_Ipanema said...

and yes, dragons and dungeons it is, apparently. Or dungeons and dragons. i seem to be quite ignorant in such matters.
