The Seven Tag

Seven things that I plan on doing (its interesting that much of it involves travel):
1. Go see Angkor Wat and more of South East Asia.
2. Eat my way through Thailand!!
3. Visit Kerala and spend some lazy days in the backwaters.
4. Read Joyce - I have been stuck around page 35 of Ulysses for the last 10 years.
5. Cook and eat healthy.
6. Work out regularly.
7. Earn enough to pay for all of the above!

Seven things I can't do:
1. (looking around shiftily while mumbling) Uh swim
2. Get rid of those freaking breakouts - I am the age I am - and not sixteen, good heavens!
3. Find that one thing I can be crazy about. Maybe food eh?
4. Not be lazy.
5. Wake up at sunrise, or even before 8 AM regularly, sheesh.
6. Work out regularly :(
7. Think of any place but Calcutta as home.

Seven things I say a lot:
1. Awwww (What can I say - all my friends are reproducing like bunnies)
2. Hel-LO (Yeah, funny sing-song on the second syllable. Yeah I hate it too but can't stop)
3. Riiight (With suitable amounts of disbelief in the voice)
4. Darn (Trying to get out of the cursing habit, so...)
5. Freaking (Ditto)
6. Dhur (Self-explanatory)
7. Chhagol (Thats for my dear brother)

Do I have to tag anybody? The usual suspects - Priya and Goti! Also may I say that I am honored to tag the famous [drumroll] Arnab of Greatbong fame!!

The first two of the can't do list can be remedied easily. The rest perhaps we shouldn't meddle with, eh? Why find just one thing to be crazy about when there's a whole bunch of things to obsess about?

Yay, let's go travelling through South-east Asia together. I'm so on board with that. I'd love to go see Angkor.

If you find anything for those breakouts let me know!

And I can totally empathize with the "find one thing to be crazy about". I think its America - everyone exhorts you to "follow your passion"!!! "do the thing you love most"!!! "spring out of bed each morning to do the thing you love"!!! "Live your best life". asoasf. Of course there are always exclamation marks for all of this, which drives me nuts (the passion thing I mean, not the exclamation marks). I always feel as though I am missing something and that I should be unhappier than I am.

come to philly /nyc sometime!

South-East Asia, yes. But spare some time for Shanghai and the Forbidden City too (sorry, current enthusiasm).

Erytop for breakouts. Ask your mom or someone from India to get it - its fabulous stuff - beats the Neutrogenas and whatnots of the world hollow. It comes in one of those dusty packages which repose for years in peaceful cohabitation with Dettol Liquid and Himani Natural Cream at Lucky Chemists or Saifee and Sons and is made by Elder Pharmaceuticals or Alembic Chemicals or one of those numerous companies with factories in Ankleswar and godowns in Bhayander.

J.A.P - thanks for the suggestion and I can see that you are totally into it :) Only time I ever wanted to visit China was right after I watched Eat, Drink, Man, Woman. Yes, for the food... :)
Neela, thanks, must try that...
