Sharing my world

From Cee.

Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?

Clay-pot-water-health-benefitsWater.  My first choice is water kept in earthernware pot (paanai thanni), drunk from a copper or silver tumbler.

Second choice: Water with ice, drunk from a glass.

The latter does not quench thirst like the former.

If I must have some sort of flavouring, I’d go for cold panagam (water sweetened with jaggery and spiced with cardamom and dry ginger) or sweetened lemon juice.  Both are refreshing, but loaded with calories.

Complete this sentence:  Never In My Life Have I…. 

  • climbed a mountain (edited to add: no that’s not true.  I have climbed the Tirupathi mountain more than once.  What I have not done perhaps is moutaineering type of climbing, not climbing through steps)
  • gone in a ship
  • hitched a ride with a stranger
  • flirted
  • walked the ramp
  • worn a bikini
  • used a tampon
  • run a marathon
  • bunjee jumped
  • ridden a helicopter
  • explored a cave

Lots more….not sure if I would do any of these in future either….

If you could be given any gift what would it be?

I don’t like the idea of gifts.  Makes me feel obligated. My friends and family are usually exasperated about what to gift me.  But if I must accept a gift, I’d like it to be an expensive perfume – Chanel types.

What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something productive?

That has rarely happened.  I can dose off anytime anyplace.  Now, whether that sleep is healthy or addled with crazy dreams is a different matter altogether.  On the rare occasion that I can’t sleep, I count breath.  I am usually out by the time I have counted 15 outbreaths.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Grateful that pms is over.  Looking forward to 15 days of relative mental quiet.

    Great answer! Wish I’d thought of that one, although could my perfume be Hermes, please? 😉

    I smiled at your list of never in my life – it’s so similar. I have done touristy kind of hiking, cave exploring, ship (not a cruise but the little ferry rides). I have accepted that I will not be doing any of the other things in the list – simply because I don’t want to!

    You cracked me up with your list of never in my life!
    I have never done some of those and most likely not do it in the future. Your mishmash-ed list is for the adventurous folks! I am still laughing 🙂 🙂 :).
