The Quartet Meme

I was going to post about the captain leaving his sinking ship in Egypt. (Which Emory wrote about quite well) And the intensifying Muslim reaction to the Danish cartoons but.. I decided on a fun post. After all, Baji tagged me. When your baji tells you to do something, you must comply! [p.s.: Ali/Aamir: elmo balloon? still up. The digital is dead or I’d upload it for your viewing pleasure] [p.s.s: To those who’ve heard the familiar lament, I am finally nose-ring-less. Nail clippers were involved. I miss it. ]

  1. sorry chica, have yet to find a meme interesting enough to me to do ๐Ÿ™‚you worked for the sentinel? I really like that paper! It looks fun to write for…Also, working in a book store sounds like a total dream job…next to operating a choco factory, of course ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Shabs.. boo! you meme snob you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah I freelanced for a year for them, it was great. And working at a bookstore is FUN. Great conversations bc the people were all very educated in awesome majors like “art history” etc. AND you get to borrow books up to two weeks at a time! ๐Ÿ™‚Mystic: Yes the old one have you seen it? Chanai.. The chickpea desi dish ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Mystic, pyasaa has many layers. The song in it that I relate to is “Yain dunya ugr mil bi jayain tho kya hain” It’s a good song. Chanai, ofcourse you’ve heard of it.. also known as cholay? The books I added to the meme. I’ve seen it on some and not others.


  4. Oh ya !!. Its a complex story and fight of one’s inner with outer crude world. 4 characters of movie actually represents 4 type of people around us.1. Vijay (as name means winner) – on quest of search of truth.2. Ghulab (as name means fragrance) – she is constant spiritual strength to vijay !3. Meena (as name means wine/alcohol) – confuse between true love and materialism.4. Ghosh (as name means far or dark – Is it?) purely materialistic man.I still enjoy song..”sir jo tera chakraaye”.. Hun..Chenai.. never heard, never ate. I was tagged by Baji too and realized I didn’t put my 4 fav. books too but updated after reading your tag. Anyway. added later: it.


  5. Thats really clever. You were supposed to tag 4, and you tagged 11. LOL That Sound of music movie! That sounds real romantic :))And hey you like Meg Ryan movies too ๐Ÿ˜€ yippie. I went crazy about her after watching city of angels. heh. She might be old but shes stunning still ๐Ÿ˜€


  6. TDH: lol yeah. well maybe its childhood inferiority complex at being able to tag NO ONE so I end up tagging more than needed ๐Ÿ™‚ Meg Ryan *is* adorable. Sound of Music is a fun musical.Wayfarer, yes! we really need to figure something out ๐Ÿ™‚


  7. Mezba ๐Ÿ™‚ thaksReza, I didnt realize you had never been tagged! Will have to get you next time ๐Ÿ˜‰Raheel, you would have great answers you should do it! Boxin: thaks, I’ll check yours out too


  8. Natasha, I concur. You should check out Paul Coelho too. He’s not funny but he’s good.Mommyblogr, i’ll be looking out for it! ๐Ÿ™‚Baji- thanks for the tag! ๐Ÿ™‚Reza- just wait… ๐Ÿ™‚


  9. Thanks for tagging me but I’ve done this one last month! ๐Ÿ™‚Ok, questions and comments. LOL…You lived in Maryland??! No freaking way! That’s my home state ๐Ÿ™‚ I love you even more now… How completely weird would it be if we had crossed paths, been in the same vicinity before? I just got shivers. Life is so strange.I must see Office Space. Everyone is always making references which I don’t get – having not seen it.What is Chanai?


  10. Hey Tee… I thought you’d been tagged.. it seems almost everyone has already been tagged! I’m always the last on the train ๐Ÿ™‚ Kind of like elem school I guess ๐Ÿ™‚Chanai is a chickpea dish from Pakistan. It’s basically chickepas cooked into sauteed onions and tomatoes with chili and salt and a blend of a few other spices. It’s delicious and easy ๐Ÿ™‚Maryland, well I lived there a LONG time ago. I was only 1, lol. But I visit ALL the time bc/ I have relatives there in the Germantown area. Though they used to live in Gaithersburg. Have you heard of those areas? I used to go twice a year and now about once a year….You’re in WV right? I claim to have been there b/c we always go to Harpers Ferry which straddles Va,MD and VW ๐Ÿ™‚Office Space is awesome. I dont kow why it struck such a funny bone nerve in me. I have two copies! The old one and the special edition ๐Ÿ˜ฆ That bad… If you’ve ever worked in an office or weith a printer you will find this movie entertaining ๐Ÿ™‚
