Teen patte

Once upon a time, there were two friends in blogworld. TGFI and QSG. One day, TGFI tagged QSG. QSG never did the tag. Others friends came, other tags were imposed. QSG did those tags. But TGFI's tag remained, undone. Life went on.

Then one day, QSG, having blissfully forgotten about her act of gross inconsideration, shamelessly tagged TGFI. But TGFI decided to be the bigger person, and actually did the tag! Here goes:

Three things that scare me:
1. Entering year 7 of grad school
2. My own cynicism
3. The real world

Three people who make me laugh:
1. Myself
2. Kramer in Jerry Seinfeld
3. Memories of several giggling moments that nobody else would find funny

Three things I love:
1. Understanding how genes work
2. Little kids
3. Traveling to new places

Three things I hate:
1. Petty gossip
2. Meddlesome people
3. How my life has become so single-tracked over the past many months

Three things I don’t understand:
1. The objectification of women
2. 3 hour plus bollywood movies
3. Why that experiment stopped working? :(

Three things on my desk:
1. Papers
2. A postcard that makes me smile, always. :)
3. Self-motivational quotes

Three things I’m doing right now:
1. Avoiding work
2. Thinking about what to do for lunch
3. Thinking about hotel beds. I love those soft fluffy mattresses they have there. They are very bad for the back though. But they also automatically make themselves up . Cool no?

Three things I want to do before I die:
1. Make that experiment work!
2. Travel to all those places- or at least half of them on my list.
3. Give back in a substantial and significant way.

Three things I can do:
1. Cook a great meal
2. Go all out for someone in need
3. Make your life miserable if the situation calls for it. :-)

Three things you should listen to:
1. Your gut
2. Good music
3. The voice of caution, sometimes

Three things you should never listen to:
1. Negativity
2. Blues, Country, Heavy metal
3. Third-hand gossip that is going around faster than the flu

Three things I’d like to learn:
1. The violin. Again
2. To give in and to let go. Again
3. Portuguese or any foreign language.

Three favourite foods:
1. Mummy's anything and everything
2. Gulab Jamuns!
3. Curd rice and aavvakai (achaar)

Three beverages I drink regularly:
1. Chai
2. Water
3. Tough choice here between OJ and vodka. :-)

Three TV shows/Books I watched/read as a kid:
1. Giant Robot
2. Target (the kid's magazine)
3. Indradhanush

Three people I would like to tag:
1.Shripriya (Your imaginary readers can use some dope)
2. Kaushik (Something less random for you to blog about)
3. Satya (Since you don't post much these days)

Hey bigger-person-Lajjo, want some avakai and gongura? Mom packed loads for me, u see.. :)

Sakshi said...

Three things you should never listen to:
2. Blues, Country, Heavy metal
I agree with the first two.. but NO TO METAL??????
why? TGFI.. WHY?
The metal songs are necessary part of the ritual to the Gods that make the experiment work ;)

qsg said...

We all know you are a bigger person - stop gloating!

jane said...

Excellent answers Lajjo :)

Hey, even I used to watch Indradhanush as a kid! Btw, you can make someone's life miserable?? Naaah, I don't think so :)

Take care,

PS: Wanna pull your cheeks hard right now >:D<

greensatya said...

Haha, looks like you were waiting for QSG to tag you, well done !

And the tag is so interesting, me gonna do very soon, and I am back to blogging as before :)

Target was one of my favourite magazine as well, Gardhab Das :)

the Smiling girl - Please give me some 'Gongura' as well, it's been long I have eaten it. Sigh !

Revealed said...

Hehehehe. I'm gonna let you in on the whole getting-expts-to-work-sacred-ritual. You have to *pretend* you don't care about it. Don't give the cultures a second glance, only take secret peeps when they *dont know* you're looking. And it'll all be fine *nods wisely and encouragingly*

Sakshi said...

@ Revealed - You forgot the sacrifices and the music thingie..
They don't work otherwise :)

Shripriya said...

Ok, it's up. Actually it was up last night... so, kudos to me for instant, same-day response ;)

Then today, my blog crashed. Major panic. All is well now, but lots of stress.

All this to say, the post is up. I had fun doing it, actually!
