Spider Tag

I was crawling in my Patho Lab innocently looking at slides when MM messaged me saying she had tagged me on her blog. Now, by Pig-City standards, in relativity I may be pretty current and up-to-date:I even fancy myself being envied by my peers for my gizmoic versatility and gadgetric dexterity at snakes but in absolutist virtual reality terms the truth is. . . I am a total bloody gao (translation: village). To me a tag has always been something my doggies wore on their collars for identification. Here is how my spider tag looks:


Last movie seen in a theatre:

In a theatre - You, Me and Hum- I watched it the last time I came to Bangalore. Hindi is not my usual cup of tea, but I liked it because it was a weird Bollywoody portrayal of the Medical Society beyond the hospital. I prefer watching movies in the privacy and comfort of my home with a couple of friends in Davangere or Bangalore. The last movie I saw today was Juno, I loved the way the director remorselessly tackled an American taboo and the frankness with which he undressed the flaccidity of their social structure, but somehow managed to work his way out to turn what was an ugly revelation into something beautiful.

What book are you reading?

Doctor in the Nude by Dr. Richard Gordon, British Comedy that is unbritishly unsubtle.

Favourite board game:

Life!! My apartment-mate and I played so much Chess in our first four months at Davangere that we became totally mutually predictable.

Favourite magazine:

National Geographic for its brilliant BRILLIANT images and stories.

Favourite smells:

Almond Essence, Lavender, Jasmine, Freshly brewed home Decoction, Morning Dew, I can get high with a sniff of Le Rochet, I love that perfume. Take a Fresh Lemon. Wash in cold water for a minute. Cut, sprinkle cold water on the cut pulp, squeeze. That’s my favourite smell.

Favourite sound:

PATCH-27 on the B.O.S.S with a mellow treble
The Exhaust Tone on a Pagani Zonda-F

Worst feeling in the world:

Why do you ask me these questions. . .
Amputation without anesthesia and a concurring severe myocardial infarction. When your only kid is watching through the window and yelping helplessly. . .

What is the first thing you think of when you wake up?

Run. . .

Favourite fast food place:

I don’t like fast food. I like quiet bakeries like Daily Bread

Future child’s name:

Tiny Taru

Finish this statement, “If I had a lot of money I’d…”

get greedy and rob a bank. . .

You don't want to get me started with the serious answer now. Trust me. I wrote it but it was too goshdarned long. . .So I chucked it into my long term memory.

Do you drive fast?

Yes, When I am late.

No, When I am sensible. I would like to think that I am sensible most of the time.

Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?

No, but I slept with this pig once. . . Tiny Taru is a spider-pig

Storms - Cool or Scary?

I would love for a storm to happen now. . . Its quite hot.

Do you eat the stems on broccoli?

Yes. . . There are few things in this world I dislike eating.

If you could dye your hair any colour, what would be your choice?

I wouldn’t dye my hair even if it greyed or silvered.

Name all the different cities/towns you have lived in:

I have always fancied to have lived in my own world.

Favourite sports to watch:

The Winter Olympics

One nice thing about the person who sent this to you:

MM!!! She is the sweetest, munchiest kin. Very,very sensitive human being, but really sweet about it. She has loads of creative energy and when she knows she likes something she does it the best. She doesn’t mind compromising or sacrificing for a friend. I love how aware she is most of the time, It’s difficult to find self-aware people these days.

What’s under your bed?

A cut skull. (seriously). . . It wails at night when I turn off the lights and the dogs start howling in pain on the road.

Would you like to be born as yourself again?

Yes. Provided you let me remember what happened when. I would LOVE re-living it in a different frequency of thought and action. . .

Morning person or night owl?


Over easy or sunny side up?


Favourite place to relax:

Any quiet, beautiful space. I enjoy looking for these and finding them.

Favourite pie:


Favourite ice cream flavour:

The Cream and Fudge Tarantula Factory. The recipe is a well-guarded family secret for many generations. . It gives you the most ultimatest sugar high.

You pass this tag to –
Shady,Hemanth, Ajay, Felix, Borat

Of all the people you tagged this to, who’s most likely to respond first?

All the people I have tagged are capable of giving the most fantastic answers, but they are either too great or gao to bother to have their own blog and they are guys who wouldn’t have the patience to do it. So I shall happily not have any offsprings to my tag, It should suffice for me to say I am quite happy with Tiny Taru, he is a good but mutated kid, and one is enough for now.
