The only thing missing is a picture of my husband. But he’s camera shy 🙂
Ugh! Mornings! July 21, 2009
I am so not a morning person. I hate waking up. I hate getting out of bed. Once I do get out of bed, I hate having to get dressed and get ready for work. I write meaningless posts on my blog such as this one just to avoid the “getting ready” process. I hate eating a hurried breakfast. I hate having to jump into reality the moment I wake up. I know, there is a solution to this problem. It’s called waking up earlier. But…
Sigh! I wish I could work from home. Even better. I wish I could be paid for not working from home…

Bharatiya Sansktriti and All that Jazz March 4, 2009
I call my husband by his name.
I allow guys to visit my home unchaperoned
I am not beyond a bit of drink and pathetic dance
I say the words, sex, bisexual, gay, lesbian, porn and sexual frustration out loud
I expect chocolates on Valentines Day (any reason will do)
I wear Jeans and skirts and rarely wear a bindi
I think Ayodhya should be delcared secular
I asked my friends to contribute to the Pink Chaddi campaign
But without contradicting myself…
I wonder why people live in together when they might as well get married and get the tax benefits
I wonder what makes people Aethist while I must listen to my Suprabhatam everyday
I always say Gods in the plural
I word my blogs so only those with an Indian connection can truly appreciate them
I wear my mangalsutra with a kind of fanatic regularity (and I still have my toe rings on)
And I generally play the role of Good Indian Wife with ease.
You Are Wednesday
Like this day of the week, you are ruled by Mercury.
More than anything, you are unpredictable.
You are witty and wise – but you are also easily bored.
You tend to be flighty and careless. You are unreliable at times.
In some ways, it’s perfect that you match up with hump day.
You are always coasting downhill – even when it seems like an uphill battle.
I’m Smart! December 14, 2008
Your IQ Score is: 138
Your mind’s strengths allow you to think ahead of the game — to imagine or anticipate what should come next in just about any situation. Because you’re equally skilled in the numerical and verbal universes of the brain, you can draw from multiple sources of information to come up with great ideas. The timelessness of your vision and the balance between your various skills are what make you a Visionary Philosopher.
In addition to your strengths in math and linguistics, you have a knack for matching and anticipating patterns. These skills and your uncanny ability to detect the underlying blueprint of most of life’s situations add to your Visionary Philosopher mind. Two philosophers who share the same combination of skills you possess are Plato and Benedict Spinoza. Spinoza had insight into how things worked in the world. He could envision a future based on the patterns he saw in life, and used mathematical logic as a structure within which to present his philosophical arguments. With that base he was able to use logic to formulate his theories. Borrowing from his linguistic strengths he wrote eloquent texts and, therefore, was able to bring his philosophical ideas and structure to the rest of the world. His story exemplifies the talents that are present in the Visionary Philosopher intellectual type.
Whatever you decide to do in life, you’ve got a powerful mix of skills and insight that can be applied in a wide variety of ways. You can expand your mind to understand a situation. Your strong balance of math and verbal skills will help you explain things to others. For example, if you were on an archaeological dig and discovered an object, you could probably use your deductive powers to figure out not only what the object was but also how it was used. Given your ability to put things together, you are more than capable of inventing a life plan that is in synch with your perspective on how things were, how they are, and how they might be one day.
