Stylish Blogger Award

Sundeep aka Designwali bestowed the Stylish Blogger Award on SHP last month. THANK YOU S! I have so many things to thank you for :)

So, I decided I needed a break from....
Stubbing my toe on furniture that isn't where it is supposed to be... Ouch!
Picking my way through a minefield of cardboard boxes- Hahahaha- You thought I didn't see you lurking there you vile box?
And yet!
Landing on packed cardboard boxes, tearing them and having to re-pack...

Time Out! I need to get to my happy place... And that is YOU!


So, here are some random tidbits about me that I am supposed to spill out on being tagged...

1. I am a sucker- for a sob story. Give me a sad tale and you will find me parting with my money very easily... 

2. I like anything that has the words British and Entertainment attached to it- The Office (The Ricky Gervais one- Bah! Humbug! I say to Steve Carell), The Beatles, Liam Neeson, Yes Minister, Hugh Laurie, Agatha Christie, Helen Mirren, Fawlty Towers, Enid Blyton, The Rolling Stones... I rest my case!

3. I HATE sad endings. I cry(copiously) while reading, while watching movies. Ummm... Errr... I even cried while watching Billu Barber- This is a story for another day ;) 

4. I never say No. And this landed me in trouble constantly when in India. Most weekends I found myself in the predicament of having to call and cancel on a friend (and be met with a tirade or silence- the fire or the frying pan), because I had said yes to every plan and to every friend :|

5. I over commit. My enthusiasm far overshadows any ounce of practicality. I planned a white water rafting trip 2 weeks before my wedding! In hindsight, what was I thinking?!

6. I can handle complex operations on an excel sheet, but cannot do day-today math. Pssst! I majored in finance and even worked in investment banking! I quite frequently overpaid, got shortchanged until I landed in America and realized it ran on plastic money. Phew!

7. Brown and Grey are not colors... OH NO! They are what happens when you mix every color in the rainbow and that results in a big murky slush puddle in your palette. Yikes!

8. Time- Time is bent and skewed. It is a non-linear concept that I cannot grasp. Luckily, I have a dad you can set your clock by and a husband who arrives at a party when the host is still setting it up! The 2 men in my life ensure that I reach places at a decent hour, while I firmly believe that Puctuality is the virtue of the bored...

8 happens to be my lucky number- So, let me stop here and bid you goodbye....

I will drop by to say hello when I start unpacking boxes and setting up house...
Bye for now, while I hold that happy thought!

Ohhh---the planning stuff two weeks before the wedding bit (thesis defense!)But then I've always thrived on being overworked (no point till you stretch it to the max, right?)The crying bit, the dad you can set your clock by bit (and a husband who wakes up at 4:00 am to get ready for a flight at 4:00 pm!!)(I'm a stickler for time too , or at least I was........... :( )

I happen to like brown and black(in moderation).

Missed reading your posts. :)

Over-commit? huh?? what's that?
