I am Blank Because…
Thought of breaking the monotony on the blog with a fun post… I enjoyed writing it, seriously! This post idea was shared on the Write Tribe blog which is I’m Am Blank Because… a fill in the blanks exercise from Little Miss Momma’s Blog. I’m Weird Because…
- I can eat desserts as a main course meal.
- I don’t like chocolates and ice creams.
- I’d rather die than eat food served in trains or roadside vendors or any unhygienic looking eatery.
- Just by looking at a new dish, I know whether I’d like it or not. This is especially for those exotic looking desserts on the buffet tables at hotels/restaurants. And when I do try them, I am always right. No, I am not biased.
- I love to have my morning and evening tea in total quiet and peace. If both of these are missing, I’d delay having my cuppa. A blissful environ is mandatory for my daily elixir.
- I love doing dishes, mopping and washing clothes. Can do them at any hour of the day.
- Giving the home a spic and span look takes precedence over cooking food for the hungry souls, always most of the time.
- I can’t function without making lists. A mental list is made for regular chores while rest of the things are thought out loud on paper.
- I can shed more than a bucket load of tears while watching movies, even the ones that I have seen over a hundred times.
- I cant dance to save my life.
I’m a Bad Friend Because…
- I don’t really like talking on the phone. I rarely take the initiative to call.
- I’d rather text than call.
- I am far too honest and that hurts a lot, I know.
I’m a Good Friend Because…
- I’m there for my friends with an empathetic ear. Anytime. Always.
- I respond promptly to any need/call/text.
- I am fiercely loyal.
- I am always there, through thick & thin, for my friends.
I’m Sad Because…
- Despite my best intentions, I am never able to stick to my exercise schedule for long (read 3-5 days! 🙁 ).
- I am not able to keep myself from worrying about anything and everything.
- The unconditional love and support that I receive from my boys.
- I baked cupcakes for the first time yesterday and they turned out great.
I’m Excited For…
- The things that our shaping up…
- The future that looks so very promising! Touch wood!
What makes you Weird, Happy, Sad and Excited? Do share your thoughts 🙂

Every time my mom makes a fuss about the state of our home, or arrange it for the umpteenth times, somehow these days I think of you 😉 … and I actually knew almost all of your weirdness even before reading this… Awe…. I like the fact I know you more than I thought. 🙂
August 13, 2014 10:58 am|
Oh My God! The saga of someone’s OCD for cleanliness has reached far and wide! 😀 You know me well then 😀
August 13, 2014 3:18 am|
I can’t keep to an exercise schedule for very long either!! 😐
If you don’t like chocolate and icecream, what desserts are we talking about?!! 🙂
August 13, 2014 11:01 am|
Aah! You too! I seriously need an exercise partner who would push me till exercising becomes a way of life! *Sigh* Why, we have sooo many Indian sweets. 🙂
August 13, 2014 7:28 am|
The last point on your ‘weird’ list applies to me as well. 🙁
The ‘Bad Friend’ and ‘Good Friend’ lists apply completely to me. That’s why I have quite a few genuine friends!
August 13, 2014 11:03 am|
Glad to have your company there, PI!! 😀
I believe, having a few genuine friends is the best and I’d prefer only this variety in my life 🙂
August 13, 2014 8:44 am|
I have some things common with you…like cleaning over cooking, and not being able to keep up an exercise routine, and yes not taking the initiative to call. It was a fun post to read! Thanks for sharing a few things about yourself 🙂
August 13, 2014 11:55 am|
Birds of a feather, are we!! 🙂 I have a severe OCD for a neat and clean home and that’s more important than a grumbling tummy 😉 Glad that you enjoyed reading this post, Beloo 🙂
August 13, 2014 9:24 am|
We are so similar in the weird department .. 😀 Apart from chocolates and ice-creams ..I also an’t eat in unhygienic places..I like my street food served in a spic and span restaurant 😉
August 13, 2014 11:57 am|
Ditto. I can have golgappas only at Bikanerwalla and Haldiram where they serve it with bowls and spoons! 😀
August 13, 2014 9:48 am|
This was certainly fun! So many similarities except for ….I can’t live without chocolates…. And cleaning… Eh…well…errr… 😉
N I am not at all a phone person!!
August 13, 2014 11:58 am|
I know chocolates are loved by all except for a few unique people like me, Nabanita… 😀
August 13, 2014 2:54 pm|
You and I are alike but for your not liking ice creams and chocolates, and another thing, I am a lousy housekeeper 🙂 Lovely list, Shilpa. I too hate talking on the phone, texting is better. I loved reading your creative post.
August 13, 2014 4:19 pm|
Glad to know that I am not alone 😉 Thanks Sulekha, glad you liked this post! Would love to see your post on this prompt too 🙂
August 13, 2014 5:15 pm|
That’s a fun read! Even I judge food and can’t eat it if I don’t like it! And no, I like being a little messy and I love my chocolates and icecreams! 😛
August 26, 2014 11:06 pm|
Aha! You too 😀 Good to have company in judging food by its looks 😀
August 13, 2014 11:58 pm|
Exercise schedule?? What exercise schedule? Oh my. HA HA. You sound a bit more on the ball than I am. So much fun to read and know you better! ♥
August 26, 2014 11:07 pm|
Laugh away at my expense, Kathy 😀
August 14, 2014 10:47 am|
That was fun to know the li’l tidbits about you! Could so relate with not sticking to exercise regime for long bit 🙂
Good luck for your promising future 🙂
August 26, 2014 11:08 pm|
Glad you liked this post, Deeps and thanks a lot for your kind wishes 🙂
August 15, 2014 12:02 am|
ok.. I agree!! you are weird! 😛
you like washing clothes and doing the dishing!!! 😀 😀
I agree that you are a great friend and a fabulous person Hugs Shilpa 🙂
I’m going to take this up! Should break the monotony and since I love my weirdness – it will be fun to write it down 😀
August 15, 2014 12:04 am|
and doing the dishes!
(Gosh! What a typo!! But that’s me in shock! 😉 )
August 26, 2014 11:10 pm|
August 26, 2014 11:09 pm|
Suddenly I am getting conscious of my weirdness 😀
Thank you for your kind words and do take this up. Looking forward to know more about you too 🙂
August 15, 2014 12:00 pm|
Nice to know more about you Shilpa. I kind imagine anyone who does’nt like ice cream and chocolates. And wow, cup cakes look yummy.
August 26, 2014 11:12 pm|
I know, it is weird that I am not too fond of these 2 things which are loved by almost all the people in the world 😀
August 15, 2014 1:51 pm|
I for one can actually live on desserts. If I have to decide on a place for a Sunday buffet,I would look at the desserts and really the main course..
August 26, 2014 11:11 pm|
That makes two of us 😀
August 15, 2014 5:02 pm|
hmmm and why does it make you weird.. I was nodding at a lot of points too.. and I am normal 🙂 he he he he

and honesty is gooood 🙂 you are a good friend for sure .. its ok if you dont call me .. he he he he I know Ha ha ha ..
3-5 day not sticking to exercise its been MONTHS this side 🙂
and those cupcakes are so yummmyyyyyyyyyyy i want i want i wantttttttt
and all the best for all that is shaping up .. 🙂
August 26, 2014 11:16 pm|
Ya… their brand of dirt makes the street food(especially in India) tasty for many. Gosh… thinking about it makes me nauseous!
Not exercising is not good and I think we must change our habits! Sigh… when will that happen?
Thanks a lot for your kind wishes, Bikram 🙂
August 15, 2014 5:55 pm|
Ha ha ha – that was a fun read dear Shilpa – and I feel I’m knowing u better and better…. I also have to have my peaceful morning tea… A loyal friend like u – sounds awesome! Thanks for sharing – I enjoyed reading it a lot – and a fun exercise too:-)
August 26, 2014 11:17 pm|
Thank you Eli. Glad you enjoyed reading this post and hope to read about you too 🙂
August 16, 2014 5:11 pm|
I felt related at many points and the coffee in peace and quiet is a must for me as I think it as my style of meditation… 🙂 Loved reading it a lot…
August 26, 2014 11:18 pm|
I know what you mean. I so love that me time while having my tea! Thanks Sheela 🙂
August 17, 2014 1:04 am|
Loved the honesty in the list, Shilpa 🙂 You really enjoy mopping and washing clothes? Why do you need any other exercise then? 😀
August 26, 2014 11:19 pm|
Washing is by machine and mopping through super-mop… so not much exercise there 😛
August 17, 2014 10:09 pm|
Hey this is such a great idea 🙂
I guess we share a lot of traits – The OCD for cleanliness and keeping this in order, the lists , the desserts and about shedding tears for some movies 🙂
Enjoyed reading it 🙂
August 26, 2014 11:20 pm|
Good to meet a kindred soul in you, Ashwini 🙂
August 18, 2014 9:36 pm|
That was a sweet little post. Cupcakes look yummm! You are the second person I know now who doesn’t like chocolates and ice-creams. Enjoyed reading it very much 🙂
August 26, 2014 11:20 pm|
Thank you Shesha 🙂
August 19, 2014 2:46 am|
Shilpa, I am like you for the desserts part…the tears for movies and lists. your cleanliness part, I can never ever do that…it’s an art man…even though I tried, I cannot. I decided I rather retire with a book than cleaning the mess by my two monkeys.
and what makes you happy? you don’t have to write a post about it dear.
August 26, 2014 11:21 pm|
Hahaha..”I rather retire with a book than cleaning the mess by my two monkeys”… I liked that 😀
August 20, 2014 10:47 am|
You don’t like chocolates. That certainly makes you weird :). Jokes aside, I loved both your qualities for good and bad friend. Touch wood to the promising future.
August 26, 2014 11:23 pm|
LOL 😀 Wonder why I dont like chocolates when I love sweets so much 😀
Thanks a lot for your kind words and wishes, Rachna 🙂
