I seem to have lost a sense of time lately. I woke up yesterday morning (Monday) and I as I was putting on my jeans I realized that it is not Friday, but Monday. I mean hello? Didn’t I just come out of a weekend? Today I woke up thinking it is Thursday. Then I convinced myself that it was Wednesday. While working on my office desktop, I quietly hovered the mouse on the bottom right hand corner (where the time is) and I realized it is Tuesday. There is definitely something wrong with me.
I have seen quite a few movies on my computer last week. Elvin and the chipmunks, Vantage Point, Hitch (don’t you just love Will Smith), Fashion (I got tired of watching Priyanka Chopra for 3 hours) and Kite Runner (I had seen half of it before) .I know these are old movies (except Fashion), but I wanted to catch up and I couldn’t find any new good movies released.
J is going to London for 2-3 months this weekend for a business trip and I am already miserable. Maybe I will give him a list of books I want (the ones not available in India). At least some good will come out of his trip 😉
I want to go out of the city for a couple of days. I feel stifled. I need a change.
What’s up with the Wizard of Oz book? Suddenly I am getting a lot of searches on my blog for that book.
I have bought a total of 20 books this month. I think it’s called splurging. I wanted to say I am not going to buy any more books this month, but what the heck? I don’t care.
I didn’t know Lindsay Lohan is bisexual. Oh…well, I guess it’s the men’s loss.
Yay for the outcome of the U.S election.
On a last note, Mr. Michael Crichton, we will miss you.
Sally had tagged me for a bookish meme. I am supposed to write 7 bookish facts about myself. I think I stopped counting after 4.
So here we go.
- I cannot read self-help books. Even popular books like ‘Men are from Mars women are from Venus’. I think it was entertaining but I could not read it for long. The only self-help book I have read completely is ‘You can win’ by Shiv Khera. And that too because I did not have any other book with me at that time and I was working in an exhibition where afternoons were pretty dull.
I love buying books; I cannot come out of a bookstore without at least a one book.
I went to landmark the other day. I bought 4 books which cost me around Rs. 750. The cashier said if I could buy RS. 1000 worth of books, I would get a membership card. As I frequently go to Landmark, I thought I should buy 1 more book to complete the total. So I went back again and instead of buying 1 book, I ended up buying 4 more books. Oh, well.
I absolutely could not finish ‘The memory keeper’s daughter’. I know most people liked it, but I couldn’t even finish half of it. I took a break and went back to it after reading another short book. But no use. In fact, it put me on a readers block for about 3-4 days. I don’t think I will ever pick it up again. Or maybe I will skip read it. I want to know what happened to the little girl.
I never read when I was young. So I compensate by reading children’s books and classics even now. And I love them. I just bought Oliver’s twist and Anne of green gables this weekend. I have never read them before and I can’t wait to start.
I cannot read more than one book at a time. I try, sometimes, but it is really hard. So most of the time I stick to a single book.
I love reading Mill’s and Boon and Silhouette books even now. It helps me get over my reading block. And what better than reading a book which you can finish in 2 hours? And I love romance books, so there.
I passed on my ‘The world’s famous serial killers’ book to my J. He doesn’t read much, he prefers watching Seinfeld reruns instead. I think he liked the book. He said, ‘Give me more serial killer books’. I don’t think that’s good. Instead I got him ‘World’s famous gangsters’.
I am in a mood for colors as you can see. Anyone else who is interested in doing this meme is most welcome. Consider yourself tagged.
