Since the last couple of years, my blog is seeing a ritual of sorts. After the super hectic and exciting April AtoZ challenge, my blog goes into a deep slumber. I had a lot on my plate this month. While everything got done, this baby of mine got royally ignored, so much so that I forgot its birthday too. On May 1st, I completed 8 years of scribbling virtually at this space. 8 years! Wow!!
There’s a lot to share but nothing like a fun and light post to wake up my blog from its catnap. Debbie from The Doglady’s Den is hosting a Blogfest on her blog. It’s Getting to Know You- 30 Odd Questions. Thanks Debbie for this saviour post, my blog needed just this. So, here I go with answering these 30 Odd Questions…
What did you want to be when you were a kid?
A Doctor! I guess that was more because of limited options then and prevailing societal norms. I quit this dream after failing the first attempt and I am glad that I did that!
Which “F.R.I.E.N.D.S” character do you relate to the most? Why?
Monica! Because of her OCD for cleanliness, her organizational skills and her being a dependable friend.
Do you like your name? Why?
I believe almost everyone is possessive of their names and love to wear them with pride. Undoubtedly, I love my name. Doodling my name/signature is one of the things that I love doing! I find it lame when people ask me, “You are Shilpa Shetty or Shilpa Shirodkar?”
Are you messy or neat?
Neat. Everything has to be in its place… where it truly ‘belongs’.
How tall are you?
Ah! Height is just a number. But for record I am 164 cms tall.
How tall were you when you were 10?
What is your guilty pleasure?
I ♥ sweets and that’s my guilty pleasure. I can have sweets as main course and there’s nothing like warm desserts. Aah! Am craving for something sweet now!
What are you saving money for right now?
How many Pringles can you eat at once?
I don’t like them!
Tea or coffee?
I have changed from a tea addict to tea and coffee lover. But when I am truly tired, I need my big large mug of tea and nothing else.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
I think as a kid, I was an introvert. But now I am more of an ambivert.
What will be your Halloween costume this year?
We don’t celebrate this in our part of the world.
Sweet or salty?
Sweet, without a doubt.

My 15 year old!

Opinion on cigarettes?
H.A.T.E them and one should NEVER smoke them.
Do you want/have children? How many?
Three favourite boy names?
Had done a lot of research when naming our son. After filling reams of papers with boy names I really liked, I went in for Aaryan which I had thought of before the research. yes, you may roll your eyes I like Kshitij as a name too (Yes, I am biased. LOL) and Rahul is another name I like, though it’s pretty common.
Three favourite girl names
Haven’t really thought about this. There are a lot of lovely names these days. (Of course, there are equally bizarre ones too.) I like Kiara, Maya and Myra.
