The Expansionist Meme

Nova and Nita tagged me to do this meme. So here it is.

Please thoughtfully consider the following, and choose one item for each of the categories below. (Be sure to describe your reasons for choosing)

One religious work from a non-familiar tradition you’ll read:
The Bible…I’d always wanted to read it.
One music video–that you like–from your “least likely to listen to’ genre:
I never listen to ghazals and especially Jagjit Singh as he depresses me big time! But I like this song very much…”Koi Fariyaad” from the movie Tum Bin.
A book from a genre you almost never read, that you have read, or you will read (promise!):

I guess “Freakonomics” which I’m currently reading anyway. Otherwise I’m a fiction or thriller or mystery or comics reader.
Somewhere you’d never thought to go on holiday/vacation, and why it might be fun to go there?
Mauritius because I love the sea and sand (not the sun though)
A specific food you’ve never tried, but will because of this meme, honest!:
I have not tried any of McD burgers yet (only Pizza Hut/Dominoes pizzas) but I will..Promise!!
A sport or game you really hate, or haven’t tried yet, but are willing to give one more go:
I’ll like to try out Table Tennis as a dear friend is very interested in that and I wonder whats the hype about!

A style of dance you probably won’t try (we won’t make you promise on this one):

Any Indian classical dance..too much costume!
A career job you don’t feel you’re suited for, and why:
An industrial job – too much hardwork and no holidays!!! 😀 😀
An item that’s “thinking out of the box’ for this meme that hadn’t been included:
What is it that you will dare to wear which you have never worn before? (This question has been suggested by Nita to the people she tagged)
This nice red branded evening gown worn by the actress Anne Hathaway!!
It’s there’s one thing in life you wanted to do, and will do because of this meme, what will it be?
“Will do”? Is it a promise? Ummm…I’ll go scuba diving right after I learn how to swim.

I tag Sridevi, Adarsh, Beth, Joel and Vaibhav

P.S. I’m on a meme spree and there are many more drafts waiting to be published. So brace yourselves for reading and getting tagged!!

  2. swimming is so easy! You should learn its sooooo much fun! I love to swim.

    Also be careful for the trolls who are now frequesnting my blog again.

    If you are not familiar with a troll the definition is here

    they are nasty mean spirited buggers…I had to turn on comment moderation for the night to stop them from doing any damage, Ill turn comments back on in the morning tho.

    I gotta go, stuff to do ;^)

  3. @ Reems and San

    Is “freakonomics” really fun to read? should definatly try that… but too much of economics would boggle me! am not a number person 🙂

    would just get dizzy if i see rows or columns of numbers!

    Though, I love my salary slip! 😀

  4. You are like me, no ghazals for you. 🙂 I, too, like Koi Fariyaad.

    I am surprised you haven’t tasted McDonalds burger yet.

  5. freakonomics is nice 🙂 btw san,did i return his book?! i dont remember !

    and u have to try domino’s cheese stuffed crunch pizza,omg ,u wil love it !

    and the red dress,sakhi already done my job with the extra winks ! 😉 😉

    and indian classical dance ,lol,its not tat bad u know ,dressing up so much 😀 i enjoy it !

  6. @Sakhi I loved the dress…after all its red!! U have been to mauritius *jealous* :)Lolz thats one funny name for TT!!

    @Robert Yes..I intend to learn but lets see when do i actually get around to do it.Ohh i didnt know abt trolls.

    @Sandeep thanks for the shortest review 🙂

    @Sakhi i have found it interesting till now. Its about finding the real reason behind many events n things from a shrewd economist. We all love our salary slips!!

  7. @Nova thanks!!

    @Poonam Hey I was missing ur comments! I’m more a pizza person…Moreover I cant open my mouth wide enough like jughead for a burger 😀 😀

    @Meg Sure next time I’m going to order that one. Have u tried chicken cheese tortillas in Pizza hut? fantastic…Oops I dont know if ur a veggie or not! Dont mind. U dance classical? wow!!

    @Adarsh I’ll be waiting 🙂

  8. @Joel As I said I’m a pizza person..infact an undercover Pizza Hut ambassador. 😀 waiting for u to do the tag, bakra 🙂

  9. again the same tag… 😛
    freakonomics…interesting 😀
    that burger looks yummy…
    even i have not tasted it/.. 😦
    scuba diving… ?? ?are u sure ?? 😛

  10. mcdonald’s burgers look NOTHING like that.

    Seriously they are all smashed and mushed down, the vegitables are usually pretty sub standard.

    the only good thing about the place is its priced very affordably.

    Still not something I would recommend. Burger
    King does a much better job I think

  11. @RJ my town is literally a town. So no such malls n outlets. Infact I hogged pizza when I went to Pune & Kanpur few times.

    @Arvind Wow!! atlast someone who hasn’t tasted McD burger. else ppl r raising such a hue n cry about it!

    @Robert 😀 thats an image of McD burger i got from Internet.Pizza rules!

  12. Can’t imagine that you haven’t tried macdonalds yet! it’s like the whole world eats there!
    that dress is a striking one….I’m thinking I wouldn’t mind trying that one on either…

  13. @Meg again Wow!

    @Nita Somehow McD didnt appeal to me as much as Pizza Hut 🙂 The dress is lovely and I’m sure u’ll look pretty in that.

    @Sulz I’m sure the dress will bring out ur natural beauty 🙂

  14. Reema,

    thanks for visiting my blog. 🙂 finally I found my way here! It’s funny how so many people DON’T want to try out Classical dance. I think I can include myself in that list too.

    And that Anne Hathaway gown is very pretty. 😀 I want to try scuba diving too. Heard that it’s a lot of fun.

  15. You have never tried McD burgers? Wow. Even though they’re nothing great and are just overhyped because they’re cheap, I thought almost everyone had had them once.

  16. @Ruhi Welcome to my blog! Ahhh..scuba diving has been on my wish list since childhood but I’ve yet to learn swimming. 😀

    @Ish Everyone is so shocked at that. I think I should have written Pasta or smthg like that. 😀 😀

Come On! Say Something!
