I have been tagged. By dreamy doodle do. So much has been happening recently that I couldn't decide which one incident to write about. Whether it should be about the 21$ I lost out in a casino in Atlantic City, or the worst hangover I ever had from excessive drinking or my Albanian friend whose laptop I formatted and can't make it work again, I simply had no idea. Now the tag thing solves the problem. And in any case, my quota of cribbing about my ohh-so-pathetic life is filled. :-P So onto the tag..........forward march.

Life ten years ago:

Was pretty simple. School was about everything my world consisted of. The journey in a chartered bus, fighting with kids from other schools, getting late into the first class everyday, standing half of the day in front the Principal's room, running around and creating a whole lotta ruckus with my huge group of friends during the tiffinbreak and what not. Puberty was settling in, we were becoming more and more interested in "late night movies" in local cable channels and graphic discussions of several human organs. The girls we have been studying with since the very childhood suddenly started putting on weight, at the right places and before we knew, they were young ladies. And we were those confused brats who had no clue about what's going on and kept fighting over some girl we liked. Then there was cricket. All types. Plastic balls, paper balls, "cambis" balls, rubber balls, deuce balls, you name it we tried it. Everyone used to put a lot of effort in the cricket field. Not because there was a tremendous hype with the resurgence of "Dada", but only because the guys who played well got some more attention from girls. :P Nowadays, I don't even watch cricket. And I don't remember the last time I played a serious game myself. Yeah! Ten years is a looooooooong time. :-(

Life Five years ago:

I was a second year student in St.Xaviers, Kolkata. I loved my college. I spent most of it in the canteen or in the common room, playing carrom. The rest were spent in drunken sessions in Olypub and relentless "bridge" playing sessions in Victoria Memorial or GoRer MaTh. I dated a girl, who did nothing other than calling me, for a few months. Then she demanded that I marry her and that was the end. I weighed around a 110kgs, sported a really fearsome frenchcut and didn't expect any better girl to date me. Still, I was perfectly happy with my life. I wish I could say that now too. :P

Life tomorrow:

Will be good. Really good. I have only one class of duration one hour in the morning. And the rest of the day I can sleep. Or even daydream. Or maybe cook chicken masala for myself.
On second thoughts, I would rather stick to sleeping and daydreaming.

Five locations I would love to run away to:

1)Kolkata
2)New York City( it sooooo reminds me of Kolkata)
3)Shantiniketon(with my friends, a car and a lot of booze)
4)Honnah Lee(I miss my school days. I don't wanna be Jacky Pepper :( )
5)Dikshunyopur(wherever that may be)

Five bad habbits I have:

1)Procrastination. I was born lazy.
2)Bunking classes. I do that for no apparent reasons.
3)Overestimating my capabilities. I will have to stop leaving the studying till an hour before the finals. I WILL HAVE TO!
4)Thinking a lot about stuff I can't possibly do.
5)Telling the wrong things to wrong people. I have fucked up big time because of this. And I don't want a repeat show.

Five things I will never wear:

1)Monkey caps.......I would rather have my nose fall off from frost bite.
2)Fluorescent green shirts........my mother once tried to make me wear one. I tore it. :-|
3)Body hugging tee-s........simply because I don't quite have a physique worth showing off.
4)Pants which are not blue, black or maybe some shade of khaki..........I had a red cargo pant once upon a time. I wore it once or twice. They are aesthetically jarring. Really.
5)Moonglasses or whatever they are called.........you know, the lighter shade sunglasses some dumbheads wear all night long . I abhor them. Completely.

Five biggest joys at this moment:

1)Some of my writings have been published. Yay! Mostly in webzines and one in the printed edition of a little magazine. Double Yay!
2)I finally have a camera of my own. I have wanted a good digicam since like forever. Now that I have it, I am really happy.
3)I haven't had a haircut for 6 months. And for the first time in my life I actually can tie my hair into a nice little ponytail. How good is that!
4)That other day a young mexican waitress said that she can't tell whether I'm over 21 and wanted to see an age proof. That was the MOST unbelievable thing to happen in recent times. She actually might have liked me. :D
5)I am negotiating with a travel agent presently. For the air ticket back to home. And that very thought is more than enough reason to make me happy.


Something to achieve by next year:

A Masters degree and a good advisor.

Something that impacted me last year:

A somebody rather. Lets leave it at that.

What will I miss about 2007:

Just those random aDDa sessions in the three months I stayed in Kolkata. And nothing else.

Five things I want to do before I die:

1)Watch every good film ever made. I am doing fine till now. And make at least one myself.
2)Write two books. One on statistics and the other, an anthology of my poetry.
3)Buy my parents a new house.
4)Visit a few places like Paris, Athens, Venice and Bueinos Aires with somebody I will be in love with. :P
5)Watch Manchester United rip the arses off the Arse-anals in Old Trafford. From the stands of course( I can see it on Tv every single year, thats no big deal). RED TILL I DIE !!!!!!

That was long! Phew! I refuse to suffer alone. So I tag Jhumu, Bimbo , The Nymphetamine and whoever wants to do it. Ciao !

1. “I dated a girl, who did nothing other than calling me, for a few months. Then she demanded that I marry her and that was the end.”

Now…did you tell me a different version of the story or what?
Elucidate in another blog entry that might read as “Girls I befriended and wanted to befriend me”…perhaps?

2. “Or maybe cook chicken masala for myself.
On second thoughts, I would rather stick to sleeping and daydreaming.”

Alternatively, you could chilli chicken. Or daydream about it.

3. “5)Telling the wrong things to wrong people. I have fucked up big time because of this. And I don't want a repeat show.”

Could you please email me the names of those people? Ma Kali’r dibyi, kauke bolbo na. Nijer naam thakleo bolbo na.

4. “5)Moonglasses or whatever they are called.........you know, the lighter shade sunglasses some dumbheads wear all night long . I abhor them. Completely.”

Moonglass ta din-er belay porte hoi. Byapok dekhay :D

5. “1)Some of my writings have been published. Yay! Mostly in webzines and one in the printed edition of a little magazine. Double Yay!”
