A list that’ll never end.

I have important questions that need answered. And important statements that need to be spoken. The time has come for me to let the world know just how uniquely wonderful my mind is — with its curiosity, in its brilliance. Respond, reader, if you can match my wowness.

  1. The world may see a holocaust in our lifetime. Save all the light bulbs.
  2. I can feel my heart trying to jump out and pump life everywhere whenever I see my doggies in their angelic avatar. At other times, I could die of heartbreak.
  3. If cuckoos could cuck, they’d be less irritating.
  4. Turmeric with milk is good for your throat. Try it.
  5. Do you have a sting? The Vengeance Sting?
  6. Have you ever seen food made in a pressure cooker?
  7. I have a mole on the palm-mound below my right thumb.
  8. I don’t try to be mysterious.
  9. Guava trees attract red ants. If you ever wish to climb one, be prepared to be bitten.
  10. We smile with a ‘J’, my clients and I.
  11. I don’t like grills and mosquito nets on doors and windows.
  12. I love it when I hear B’s vehicle approaching our gate.
  13. I hate wires.
  14. I am bothered that, all of a sudden, the list is turning into an ‘I like’ list.
  15. I think I am a good person with tremendous lack of focus.
  16. Is there a way to make operas go extinct?
  17. I used to dislike roses, for they were loved so. I imagined them as people, and they always came across as conceited, vain. Now, I am learning to accept them. But this thing against roses did not include those small ones with just one or two layers of petals. Or tea roses.
  18. I like wooden tables for dining.
  19. Did you know that soft mattresses are not good for the back?
  20. When I have green eyes, I’ll colour my hair red for a while.
  21. I used to like Charlie’s Angels before they ruined it with the movie.
  22. Β And I liked Fantasy Island, too.
  23. What colour is your computer?
  24. I read about a scientist, who goes down naked into freezing arctic water to tame beluga whales. Wow, no? The craziness, the passion. She knows yoga, that’s why she doesn’t die there.
  25. Sometimes, I want to run away. But only for a few minutes. After that I realise that I don’t really want to run away.
  26. They ruined simplicity.
  27. I lost a leather wallet my very good friends gave me.
  28. I can never write stories.
  29. Would you like to see a rattlesnake rattle? I would, as long as it is safely away but not in a cage.
  30. I’d like to make an aviary someday. When I figure out how best to make a retaining structure for the birds.
  31. If you could fly, where would you go first? I don’t know where I’d go.
  32. Have you seen the movie Perfume?
  33. Groan all you want, but the list will end for today.
It’s fun to delve deeper, isn’t it? To look at the whorls and remind yourself you’re just another madly whirled thing.

    1. I do! I like festivals a lot, and each for a different reason. Diwali makes me very happy. I used to make those colourful decorations, but now I make a different kind, which is painted with a rice flour mixture, so it just comes out white, or, if you’re feeling colourful, mix vermilion or turmeric for a dash of colour. It’s all wow.

  1. Turmeric with milk is good for your throat. Try it.
    Have – but ginger and tumeric, no milk πŸ˜‰ Good stuff.

    Have you ever seen food made in a pressure cooker?
    Yes, years ago I cooked quite a bit that way. Now it’s mostly stir-fry and brown rice cooked in a rice cooker πŸ˜‰

    I don’t try to be mysterious.
    Few Geminis do!

    I love it when I hear B’s vehicle approaching our gate.
    And the same with Chris’ πŸ˜‰

    I hate wires.
    Ditto. Esp the overhead ones!

    I think I am a good person with tremendous lack of focus.
    Gemini!!

    Is there a way to make operas go extinct?
    Oh, never! I love opera! Also Hawaiian music and bluegrass and Led Zeppelin and traditional music from various countries (not China, but India!)

    I like wooden tables for dining.
    Agreed.

    Did you know that soft mattresses are not good for the back?
    Don’t they have TempuPedics where you live?!

    When I have green eyes, I’ll colour my hair red for a while.
    I don’t, but I do anyway πŸ˜‰

    What colour is your computer?
    silver – MacBookAir!

    Sometimes, I want to run away. But only for a few minutes. After that I realise that I don’t really want to run away.
    I used to feel this way when I was younger. Not anymore.

    They ruined simplicity.
    Agreed. But who is “they?”

    Would you like to see a rattlesnake rattle? I would, as long as it is safely away but not in a cage.
    I HAVE. I love all snakes, but give timber rattlers their distance. Prairie rattlers are pretty shy and harmless, if you don’t move too quickly. We lived on the New Mexican desert once and got to know both.

    If you could fly, where would you go first? I don’t know where I’d go.
    To visit my girls!

    1. I don’t quite understand what bluegrass is. But I like the name. Is its origin in the word ‘grass’ as in ‘weed’, you think?

      Oh, Bela! We have nail beds, wouldn’t you know! What is TempuPedics?

      The ones who ruined simplicity are the people people follow. Such a shame.

      You know about snakes? Rattlesnakes! I have never been in close contact with them, except once when a little snake entered our house and I was up to drink water. Oh Gosh, such a scare. I am rather afraid of snakes, I don’t know why.

      I am sure your girls would consider you an important destination, too.

      Be well, dear friend!

      1. I don’t exactly know the origins of ‘bluegrass’ as in the word – though there is a grass in Kentucky known as Kentucky blue grass. So perhaps it began there. Violins played like fiddles (much livelier than classical music), foot stomping, mandolins, guitars and stand-up bass. It’s a wonderfully American music from the mountains and hills and the roots of the soil. I simply love it!

        Nail beds, eh?! You think I’m still watching pre-Bollywood Indian movies from the ‘forties!? πŸ˜‰ Tempurpedic is originally from Sweden and is ‘memory foam.’ I’m telling you, you can sleep any which way and the foam accommodates your body. It’s the best sleep I’ve ever gotten in my life.

        As for snakes, I’ve always loved them, but do understand we don’t have the Asian varieties that drop from trees and such πŸ˜‰ Though in the southern US, they swim and hang out in swamps and many are poisonous. Still, I’ve always loved snakes – perhaps it would make your skin crawl to know Chris and I used to sleep with our Florida Kingsnake Comet. He was such a sweetheart. They are such shy creatures, and have no body warmth of their own, so they love cuddling, after a fashion. Take good care, sweetie!

      2. I like the sound of bluegrass more and more. Violins played like fiddles!

        Oh, I’ve heard of something like memory foam, it does sound worth trying. What if I lose weight in a few months. (Ha!) Will it remember my previous weight (and shape?)

        I used to get a book on snakes reissued over and over again from the local library as a 10-year-old. It was so fascinating.

  2. I wouldn’t mourn the loss of opera, but I know others would. I can’t say that I don’t like all roses because the varieties are endless. But I do not like plants with thorns at all. We shouldn’t be punished for enjoying beauty in nature.

      1. Ah, but if one opens oneself to those crescendos, they vibrate inside the body in a way no other music quite accomplishes. That a voice can penetrate the body and create such sensations will always captivate me.

  3. 8. So it just comes naturally?
    9. How big are these ants that you can climb them?
    16. Earplugs.
    17. What about people named Rose?
    20. Have you really thought this one through?
    26. They ruin everything.
    27. I may have found your wallet. Is it black?
    28. This one isn’t even close to the truth.
    31. Neptune.

    1. 8. Of course! Knew you’d notice the catch.
      9. Duh. Very.
      17. Your question never changes. And my answer never will.
      20. Oh yes. But you know my mind, it changes soon as it does.
      26. Boy, they do.
      27. Brown, with lovely embossed flowers. I could take the black one, however.
      28. Oh, Charles.
      31. Do they have sand?

  4. 8… but you end up being one… I think thats cos your writings have such depth in ’em, and I like that about you!

    9 – thanks for the warning. I do like to climb trees, but like I just said in the other post, I don’t have one near my place.

    11 – Neither do I, but I hate mosquis even more.

    12 – Ah! The romantic in you!

    14 – 15 – smiles

    17 – this is the rose one right – lazy to scroll up and check – The things you think about Priya. Can I hug you?

    20 – I think red hair will suit you. Maybe you should try it with green lense?

    Okay I forgot the no – do you mean to say charlies angels has a book version? I had no idea. I liked the movie anyway… not for anything, but because I could finally see girls who kicked asses for a change. What joy!

    25 – made my bed shake, as I rolled with laughter. This is one helleva random post, and I am loving the randomness.

    23 – I have a lenovo laptop, and I have stuck a skin of the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. sitcom πŸ˜‰

    31 – I would go up to the sky… πŸ˜› lame joke, eh?

    28 – I am not sure of the no again – really? you cant write stories? You should be able to, and I already know I will devour it, if and when you write one.

    32. No. Is it good? Whats special about it?

    33. Nope. I didn’t.

    PS. Loved the caption.

  5. Charlie’s Angels came as a TV series in the 70s or 80s I think. We watched in on Doordarshan back in the latter decade. There was a certain charm to it. Butt-kicking is a good idea. I like it, too, if only in fantasy.

    So you are a FRIENDS fan. Good on you!

    31 – Lame indeed, but I suppose that’s because your legs got changed to wings. Another lame one, eh? πŸ˜€

    32. Watch the movie. It is set in France. it’s about a boy with special talent for smells. The extent to which he goes to make the best perfume ever is horrifying. But watch it only if you can bear to let the macabre get into your sensory store.

    33. Come, now. You couldn’t possibly have wanted it to end.
