i associate memories with dresses, songs, situations and even ring tones.
i have dreamt about the blogger Pallavi twice. Her face as i see in her pictures is not the same as what I saw in my first dream. She was riding a bike in my first dream. In the second, i dreamt there was a bomb blast close to her house. It happened a few days before the Bangalore bomb blasts. i grew up in a place where there are frequent bomb blasts and hence, the bomb blast dream (is my thinking).
i would like to have a pet dog someday when the living space allows me. i had two pet dogs. One passed away in the year 1999 and the other passed away this year right after i got married. She was 15 years old. She did not recognise any of us and was almost blind but it looked as though she held on until the marriage.
i donate clothes quite often, but i still have too many clothes. (Trying to cut down sincerely.) The former BU where i worked was close to a huge retail outlet, which we nicknamed ‘temple’. We’d say, ‘let’s go to the temple’ and go shopping. Now, i feel i am working in a desert.
i don’t think it is possible to be friends with your ex (es). You can just be cordial.
i can conclude my past relationships as thus: one man i loved, one man i let love, one man i wronged.
i married the man who looked me in the eye and made me see my mistakes but loved me nevertheless.
i have become more religious and spiritual after marriage.
i have another job offer right now, which i have decided not to take up. i have stayed the longest in my current organization and i think i’ll be staying longer.
i thought it would be nice to get drunk and lose control in front of your lover but i don’t think like that any more. In fact, i never drink more than 1 small peg and i drink only when S is around. i count his pegs though.
i have 2 nephews and 2 nieces from my 3 siblings. Ankita is the eldest and I love her to bits.
i can never give up eating fish or eggs. i can give up chicken though i have no immediate plans.
i have not been able to finish Kunal Basu’s ‘The Japanese Wife’. Have been reading it since a long time.
