If Only This Tag Were Wearable

19 Apr

First up, this little bauble from Kiran over at ThirtyNineandCounting:

She believes I am metaphorically beautiful and who am I to refute it, especially when my beauty lies in her perfectly lasik-ed eyes.Thank ye, kind soul. It’s been a while.

Passing on the endorphins, the Beautiful Blogger Award goes to:

1. Aunty G: A hug from her makes you want to weep with joy. As she is wheeled in for a cataract operation today, I want her to know she is truly beautiful and I’m blessed to know her.

2. The Purple Foodie: She shares a recipe for Rosemary and Garlic Oil Foccacia and shows you how easy it is to grow lemongrass. Enough said.

So that’s that. Enjoy the bling, ladies.


Now for the tag, also passed on by Kiran. The 5 things that disappear just when I need them are:

1. Scrunchies. They’re the cotton-covered elastic avatar of commitment-phobic men.

2. My key bunch. Since I casually toss it aside every time I get home, it decides it isn’t going to be wanted or needed or loved ever again and scuttles off to a grimy corner to mope.

3. Lip balm. This little baby is my best bud, but being the size it is, gets left behind in the last bag I used, so I’m always scrabbling through the inner pockets of my too-many-to-be-mentioned handbag collection. Ditto this.

4. Cabs. When I decide to walk, they cruise past me, flashing their black-and-yellow Hyundainess in my face. But when I’m late and hopping and waving and flailing, none. Zilch. Nada.

5. That product from the stores that was available to everybody and their grandma up until 2 hours ago. Like this smelly oil that does wonders for my hair. “Sorry medum, out of stock chhe.”

I’m tempted to throw in good sense as a sixth missing item, but shall pass this once. Now, who wants to play tag, you’re it?

    Hey! Congrats on the Beautiful Blogger award!

    And the five things you mentioned are also what disappear when I need them (especially the scrunchies and the lip balm). But the last one… the thing is my head can’t seem to ever decide what actually would be good for my well-being 🙂

    Surely the perfect nose must be mentioned in connection with the beautiful OJ?

    Thanks a ton, my darling girl
    The op went off in a whirl
    Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder
    Is apt here, no matter how you told ‘er
    And you yourself are a queen of a pearl!

    Anjali: Thanks. I seem to have that issue as well. 😉

    Nitya: Erm, nostrils. The nose is a far cry from perfection, remember?

    Aunty G: *Hugs*

    pri: Mine stay firmly on my nose, where they came to live when I was 9. We’ve been best friends since.

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
