Famous Five

I am not at all sure what this summary of my posts is supposed to achieve. But then when ludwig sends me a tag, I feel I must comply. Besides, I am on the edge of my seat on a weekday afternoon at the home computer, having retired home hurt, and being deliciously out of touch of trouble-makers, having lost my mobile. And yeah, the ever-present monster is semi-asleep in between coughing bouts in the other room.

Here goes then.

Post 5 links to 5 of your previously written posts. The posts have to relate to the key words given (family, friend, yourself, your love, anything you like). Tag 5 other friends to do this meme. Try to tag at least 2 new acquaintances (if not, your current blog buddies will do) so that you get to know them each a little bit better.

The family is husband and monster-child. Monster-child's every cheeky comment and sputum analysis report is dutifully recorded here. The husband marginally features below. Let us talk instead about other family members. I have been meaning to crib about my parents, when I get around to doing that there will good material for this section. But till then...

Friends: In principle, I have tons of friends in tons of places around the world. Since I stink at having phone conversations, it is up to personal visits and cute exchanges on emails when we stay in touch. Heres one where I met a whole bunch of old friends and it was really timely.

Talk about myself, oh no, that would be so wrong, so unlike me. Heh heh. This entire blog is about exactly three people. Me Myself and I!! So lets skip on & refer to things I love, stopping merely to comment that I dislike spitting.

Your love: I generally dont write much about this, but perhaps this one?. Yes, its fair to say that although its been a gadzillion years now since I first fell in love on a basketball court of all places, sentiments are pretty much the same. Dashed funny the whole thing is.

Anything you like: I like so many damn things and write so often about things that I like that this could again contain my entire list of posts to date. What the heck, you guys. Anyway, for purposes of easy digestion here goes-
1. I like running.
2. I like to sleep near a wall. ]
3. I like PGWodehouse (perhaps not the man himself, he looks fat, I mean his books).
4. I like sports - here and here.
5. I have revelations and I like to make lists.

Kayo. Let us go ahead and tag choxbox (who may already have been tagged but has not responded yet so..), airspy (who seems to be hibernating this winter), csm (assuming he has not gotten mugged for his comments about Australian cricketeers), neha (who will deserve a break from her work right about now) & vanessa (who should consider writing new posts about all items based on life in new country).


Choxbox said...

vogay will do-its. but first i will re-read those posts of yours and laugh a bit.

Choxbox said...

btw i think the kuch kuch hota hai guys (or KKHH if you prefer.. aaargh) copied the idea straight from your life - love on the basketball court.

Neha said...

I've been tagged! I've been tagged!

But I don't think I've ever posted anything about any of those five. Will still go ahead, though. If need be, I'll first post on all those topics, then respond to the tag. but respond i will!

Vanessa said...

I know i shud be writing more. I m bursting with ideas, but just don't happen to get it on paper (the computer, i mean)....hope to do it more often:)

Kudos to you though, u manage to churn out good ones, one after the other....

Choxbox said...

tagged you back!

Airspy said...

Undeniably, I was hibernating. It was cold here till Pongal, so I slept through, then it suddenly became too hot, and spent lots of time figthing with three people every night about fan speeds.

I am in the same predicament as Neha. The total count of my postings for 2007 = 5, and 2008 = 0. So, i need to do a lot of homework to abide by this tag.

This morning its cool and rainy. I think I can break the hibernation now.

girls & csm,
thanks for the enthu!

KKHH requires a whole another post. I have carefully watched and analysed the entire thing hundreds of times. So am qualified to comment in detail on that movie. But in passing let me mention that I can, anyday, anytime, kick SRK & Kajol's ass in Basketball if they really play like they do in that movie. Of course , its not their fault, Karan Johar is a dork and knows nothing about sports. Its his fault. :(
