Aarin, The Topless Pirate

Jupiter bounded into my book store with an extraordinary spring in her step.

“I finished it!” she proclaimed, beaming much like the ray of sunshine that fell upon the counter every fair morning at this time of year.

“Finished what?” I asked. As if…

What next?!?!

Another friend of mine recently joined Word Press and I am so glad to welcome her to this wonderful blogging Community. We used to do Zumba together but it’s been more than 6 months I have done any Zumba at all. Want to join us 😉 ?

What next?!?! This is a constant question in my head. Whether it be my daily routine, my next meal, my next holiday or simply the urge to learn more n more.

It’s easy to get caught in the rut of corporate life. Simple. You get up, look ur best, get to work, do ur best at work, get back n hit the bed. Day in and out. When it comes to the weekend, you want to catch up on lost sleep over the week or complete errands you have been procrastinating during the week or like me just laze around doing NOTHING! This was how it was for me for a long long time. I convinced myself that my life was packed(doing NOTHING of course) and always had an excuse to do nothing more.

Till one day, it hit me that am capable of so much more than whiling away…

Will you answer these weird questions ?

I saw a link somewhere which listed almost 100 interesting questions to ask someone to get to know them better. Honestly, i don’t know if I will remember the answers if I ask someone or if those answers will actually reveal much about the person.

Then I thought, why not pose some weird/interesting (at least to the one who asks the questions)/fun (depending on the answers) and see what kind of answers come up. So here is a list of 10 questions. Would you be so kind to respond to those either in the comments or in a reply blog post ? You can also post your set of 10 weird/fun/random/interesting questions to others and see what kind of answers you get 😉

  1. Do you remember any of your dreams ? If yes, tell me your weirdest dream!
  2. Is your second toe longer than the big toe?
  3. One question you always hate to answer ?
  4. Your weirdest quirk ?
  5. Do you nod while answering to someone in the phone instead of saying it out loud ?
  6. Chocolate or ice cream?
  7. Have you ever eaten a chalk (the one we use to write on the black boards) ?
  8. One of the weirdest names you have ever heard ?
  9. How long can you not blink your eyes ?
  10. You are playing arm wrestling with a kid (for simplicity , let us say the kid is below 5 years) , will you lose just to make them feel happy ?

In the name of the festival…

…we do celebrate more than being able to believe in something greater than us, we also celebrate being part of a community and its also about sharing, about giving especially to those underprivileged and to show case the talents of a group or an individual. That is what I saw when I went to my friend’s housing community celebrations of Ganesh Chathurthi, yesterday, and this is my first time there even though I have known that they have been doing it for long. It is also probably because she was taking part in an event. I also had the pleasure of witnessing the cute little kids performing and outperforming their parents, be it a dance, or a mimic act, a skit, singing…they had so much variety. To be able to stand there in the stage and perform before the whole group of elders and not to mention strangers, I really appreciate their courage. A lovely evening I should say and Thank Ganesha that the rains stopped when the events were about to start.
