Meme

When I was tagged by Sirisha of Ambrosia ..of Indian Indulgences and Saju of
Chachi’s kitchen for a meme.. I thought why not. Let me expose my inner thoughts for the fellow bloggers to see and realize that they are reading the blog of one serious chick ( I know… I called myself a chick, isn’t that for 20 or less … so what I say…I’ll do as I please ;)

This meme is not some random things about urself.. I gotta synchronize my thoughts with my middle name which is…. I do not have one! But planning to get soon …when I become a citizen.The middle name I am going to have is kamala,that is my mom’s name. I have always felt that mom’s are not acknowledged in our names… tamilians take in their dad’s name.. so i am going to add my amma's name as my middle.

First with the rules: this is lifted of Sirisha's blog.. that is how we are s'posed to do
You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
* Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
* When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
* At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag.
Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

So let us begin:

K- kidness. This emotion is so under-rated. I think all of us look at unexpected kidness with a wary eye.. can u believe what the world has come too… I really hope we can change our mindset and accept things at face value..it is hard, but worth a try.

A- anxious. Why are so many of us anxious? Oh! M has bought a $700 K home… we have a $300 K home maybe we will no longer be friends. X thinks if I do not starve myself silly, I may never get a boyfriend. Many people are thinking (it is a fact) if i do not get up at 1:00 am on thanksgiving I will miss that deal in best-buy… really people stop it. Stop making things to a bigger deal that what they are…learn to enjoy life.

M –mediocre. Yes, I said it.. what is wrong in being just normal and not some super achiever? Is reaching the top so important that we squish everyone below us? All of us have been to school, there has to be a second for someone to get first. But, does that mean the second rank, 10th rank ,even 50th rank person is a no good loser…how can everyone be an Indira Nooyi there is nothing wrong in being Rajitha Mani.. who is Rajitha Mani …you get the point right! it is ok.. be a kind, loving person. It is important.

A-annoyed. Nothing wrong in getting annoyed. Why is showing of any displeasure looked down upon society? You need not have a B*&*h fit, but what is wrong in telling.. hey! I don’t like the way you are behaving with me.. or stop! That hurt my feeling.. Don’t you think it is better to say it out and get some irritation out than make a doll at home and stick needles to it in all places…( promise, I have not done this!- inspired by kashmora- telugu movie!)

L- love. Why trivialize this word. People are embarrassed to express love. I do not mean a full on French in the middle of the road, but remem when we were kids, if we loved somebody, we would go up to them and tell them straight away, no shyness or maybe they don’t love me discussion in the head. I think at-least we girls are much better, I have seen guys getting embarrassed to give a hug to their buds.. it is like woah! They may think I am gay.. what a load of crap really.

A-appreciate. Appreciate what you have in life. Be happy that you have all your senses in good working condition and you are healthy and an able human being. Stop cribbing that you are a size 14, I am too dark, I am short.. get over it. Accept yourself. Another thing, appreciate people around you, your spouse, your parents, siblings, friends… everyone whom you love and let them know. Life is too short and sometimes people go away to a place where you can never meet them but only remember and there should never be a I wish I had told him/her how much I appreciate them….

So, after this long sentimental post u think.. hmm so what is the relevence to my life?? everything, and honestly after this loong post i have no energy to explain so I am off to eat soup… and whom do I tag.. anyone who reads this and wants to do it, please go ahead .. I believe in equal opportunity ;)
