A Liar's Guide to the Dreams..

In the dead of the night, the dreams come in one by one. They cling to you with soft acceptance, and they know it all..

These are the dreams which leave a note of remembrance. They cling to our tongues like a bittersweet delight.

They feel familiar, though their flavour melts in the mouth... and taste distinctly unusual.

Peep tagged. I tag others. Just you wait... heathu and cheshire cat.

1. Pick out a scar you have, and explain how you got it:

I have one on the forefinger of my right hand. Age 9. An argument that I won against Ma.

2. What is on the walls in your room?

An amazing Poster of Two brown and white puppies dominate my North Wall. One of those puppies have eyes that make me want to do the "BOOCHOO... OOLIKIMITTICHHANALEBABA" to it. My South Wall has a poster of Harry Potter. And there is a bookshelf on that wall that lost a door because of overflow. Knowledge! How heavy it sits sometimes.

3. What does your phone look like?

Its white and pink and violet and blue. Very Girlie. My Dad chose it. Its Nokia, so basically Indestructible (I have tried, trust me) and the only thing that has happened to it after four years of misuse is a little scratch on its cover.

4. What music do you listen to?

All sorts. I am not picky. It all depends on my mood.

5. What is your current desktop picture?

This picture:
Courtesy : Avikda. He is a fabulous artist.

6. What do you want more than anything right now?

Peace. And a Vacation.

7. Do you believe in gay marriage?

I do. As soon as it is legal in India, I am marrying Andro. And Kaichu. And Jane. And D. And Jhumpus. And Maddy.

I think Polygamy is punishable... na?

8. What time were you born?

Bikelbela probably. I forgot. I just know that the day was Bangla Bundh. So my dad and my grandmother had to walk 6 miles to reach the hospital.

9.Are your parents still together?

Yes. I still think they made a mistake, though.

10. What are you listening to?

The Night.

12. The last person to make you cry?


13. What is your favourite perfume/cologne?

Gucci's Envy. Calvin Klein's Contradiction for men. And the smell of roses and Lavender Talc. And the wet khus khus on hot summer days.

14. What kind of hair/eye colour do you like on the opposite sex?

Umm... Hair colour? Eye colour? erm.... I think it depends on the person and suitability.... though long hair turn me on. And piercing.

15. Do you like pain killers?

Can anything kill pain?

16. Are you too shy to ask someone out?

I did ask someone out once, so no, I dont think I am.

17. Fave pizza topping?

Pepperoni and plenty of cheese. And jalapeno peppers and mushrooms and shredded lamb.

18. If you could eat anything right now, what would it be?

Chocolates. Dark chocolates dripping with caramel... oozing nougat and more caramel. And a glass of frothy cold machiatto to go with it.

No matter what People thinks of my taste. Dark chocolates, NOUGAT and CARAMEL.

19. Who was the last person you made mad?

I make everyone mad. I am insane, je. But I think the last person I shall make mad will be Panu.

20. Is anyone in love with you?

I wish.

I really do.
There. I does allsorts of stuff. I tag two people, ar parina.

Two things. 1. Kaichu is mine. You can have all those others.
2. Very filmi birth. Did your father have to do the Dilip Kumar?
Oh also, don't you think caramel spoils dark chocolate? dark chocolate should have nothing other than alcohol in it. Nuts and raisins, maybe.

panu said...

nononono. to all. Read my lips baby. Kaichu is MINE!! I have Dibs on her. I have fought her from Bimbo, I can fight for her too.

My dad can be anything. Honestly. I shall tell you gory details one day. You shall not believe, I guess.

Btw, Dark chocolate and Caramel. I make a batch ever so often. Amar Bhallage. Tor tate ki rya?

It IS a nice combination.

Heathu - ON YOU BLOG!!

living on video - I know. I absolutely do.

Rimi said...

@Rainboo--NO raisins. I HATE raisins in chocolate. Only alcohol and nuts. ALmond for preference. Scratch that. Only almoonds. Shredded, not whole.

I'll take it with caramel too, though. I like the besho mishti sandwiched between two layers of dark. Mmm!

Rimi said...

Uuff. Almonds and beshi. Bloody typos.

rainbeau_peep said...

queschun. who is Dibs? why is s/he on kaichu? what kind of sex racket is this?!?!
and i still say no to caramel on dark chocolate. with milk choco, yea. dark choco is too sacred for caramel.

kaichu said...


kaichu is Scared.

esp. after the sentiments expressed in the comments section of this post were played out in a literal tug-of-war in Princeton on Friday last. I was in the middle, Peep and Panu on both sides: enlightening experience, that. * smirk *

gentlewomen, behave yourselves! show restraint! there is enough of kaichu to go around! as a certain smirky 'eligible bachelor' sez: "She is a population by herself." so choose the ones you like.


panu said...

lishen Kaichu, tumi ki bolo, does not matter. Waahat we boro boro people tell you, does. so mathay Chnati.

And about the caramel debate... I say... Joshmin mukhe jodachar.

rainbeau_peep said...
