2 tags and 2 awards! :)

Warning - Long post - 2 tags!!! :)

The ever-charming Mandira tagged me long ago with this..
She has also passed on 2 awards
(I hope I didn't get the count wrong!or is it only 1?! Then, I've just "picked up" the other one as well!!!!)






The meme is all about writing whatever comes to your mind when you read those numbers.
Here's my list -

1 -> hours left for lunch
2 -> home made dosas I had for breakfast
3 -> more days for the weekend!
4 -> more hours of actual work remaining
5 -> yrs since I have been working
6 -> good friends I have made across companies I have worked for!
7 -> yrs ago, I changed myself for the good.
Esp in my thinking about a lot of things and people.
8 -> yrs ago I became frns with my husband!
9 -> is the number of my favorite dishes
10 -> yrs ago I was in my final yr of graduation and in May, had my exams...

There done!! :)


Another one is from from the lovely Rashmi.
It's to list out 9 most precious memories/moments of our lives.

-> Memories of my grandfather making me dosas - he had a special way - he used to
apply chutney inside the dosa and then add ghee - the lovely smell still reminds me of him and till date, I love eating dosas with the chutney applied inside!

-> My dad putting my sister to sleep when she was a baby. He used to carry her and walk around softly singing God's hymns. There is something very soothing with that memory.

-> 2 separate gangs of 4 girls - we used to have so much fun! The churmuri sessions
near Balal Circle, the late night gossips and study sessions... :D

-> The time I have spent with my husband, then-friend in Mysore.
Though, the Everyday memories I make with him are all so special and precious. :)

-> Visits to Chamudi Hills. Each time its special and the magic never ends.

-> First salary after joining a new company... the ecstasy of blowing off the entire amount is priceless!!

-> My honeymoon. Both of us couldn't believe we were out on our own with no parental
supervision of any sort! We were so happy, that we had ice creams for breakfast as well!!! :D

-> First time I went and shopped for books in Blossoms... for so less money, I had bought half the store!!!

-> Chat and gossip sessions with my mom, late into the night - I don't know how we
manage to have so much to talk about even though we speak a couple of times everyday!!!

-> My first visit to USA. We landed in Denver in the evening or night, I think.
I remember feeling lost and bewildered and excited all at the same time.

-> Shopping with my sister - each time is different and we end up having so much fun!

*ok, so the list is 11!! I had to cheat on such a lovely tag!! :)*

I tag and award - Grail, Rayshma, Galadriel, Dew Drop, Ersa, Indyeah, Smitha, Solilo, Swati.

Enjoy Ladies!! :)

Pixie said...

@DDD: LOL!! Yea.. we had so much fun - I mean, it was less mushy-romantic and more fun!!! :D

@ Smitha: yea.. some of those memories are so precious. :)

@Patichar: Welcome! :) and thank you!! :)

@HW: Well, you know - my outlook about people, things in general... broadened my views about things - something as trivial as alcohol and I learnt to take my time with people...
Post Graduation was an eye-opener in many ways!! :)

Pixie said...

oh and you all so totally deserve the awards! :)

Renu said...

Lovely post:)

Icecream for BF:):) I always tell my children that whenever u have kids, they will be very happy to see that their parents themselves are always eating maggies and fast food, so wont regulate them at all:)

hitchwriter said...

you quit alchohol 7 years ago ? whats ur age ?

I still havent given into it yet... !

Pixie said...

LOL!! dude - Dhiren ... I meant my views on alcohol changed - that's just an example...
Like, I though all people who drink - are bad people... and then, I realised that all my friends drink and none of them are bad people!!!

Something along those lines.. my views at looking at things changed... and as Indyeah says - tolerance levels increased as well! :)

@Galadriel - the awards and the tags are all yours babe! :P

Pixie said...

@Wisegirl - u need to do them tags and pick up the awards... :P
which u never do!!! :D
