I have also done the vegetable slicing and dicing and batter stirring, dish washing, coffee/tea making for my mom.

I love all the movies you had mentioned except for the first one. I have not seen it.

Pala and Changanacherry--May be I might know you :-)

Carline in the City and M.A.S.H. -- love both of them. Alan Alda was my favorite. Same with Practice. I love legal thrillers serial, novels, and movies.

You have traveled a lot. I have never been to any of the places in your vacation list.

Gerald Durrell fan. Me too. Have you read his brother's books--Lawrence Durrell.

I too love Italian and Chinese food. Also I have a slight preference for Thai over Chinese. Salads, I don't like very much. But that is what I eat most these days and that too without any dressing :-(

Mind Curry said...

if only i had the 4 jobs that you have had :)

very nice sets of four you have listed..ever thought of having quadruplets? lol..

and thank you for the tag..:)

quills said...

Oye..I have the same doubts myself as Alexis. :)...Pala (well more like Kanjirappally) and Changanacherry. :)

I shall attempt this fun tag soon. :)

Alexis: Thanks for the Tag, really enjoyed it. You must see the first movie in my list, saw it again for the nth time y'day on Star Movies,so romantic. Alan Alda was my fav too!!!! And 'hotlips' too :)) In fact I loved all the characters.Caroline in the City is what makes me ROFLAO. I am addicted to it. Lawrence Durrel is not my kind of author :) And Salad without dressing??? awwwww so sad :( That's the best part :)

Mind Curry: "Quadruplets"??? The very thought of having one baby scares the thought of marriage out of me LOL
Looking forward to your tag :)

Quills: Maybe we are related through a series of accidents LOL Awaiting your tag eagerly :)

Dhanush said...

venus said...

marketing comm is an interesting job, if I imagine what job i'd like, i can think of this one including others :)

vegetable slicing and dicing and batter stirring, dish washing, coffee/tea making, I think, none of any indians can get away from this jobs, at one or the other point in life, he/she would have gone thru this!

aks said...

hey sil.....cake batter stirrer... i too have xperienced that...loved the job cause i got some batter at the end 4 myself...yummy it was....

Shawshank Redemption....gr8 choice

and guess first time I am reading Think Pad...was a PoomanamHolic till now i guess....

mathew said...

Changancherry!! :) ha..was it intution..i always thought u were someone from Ktm!!

Shawshank...i dont believe in oscars once i came to know that it dint win any!!!

silverine said...

Alexis: May be I might know you to :)

Venus: Marcomm is really interesting but is a small part of communications. I think all of us would rate the chores around the house as our first jobs :)

Aks: Welcome here buddy!!! I love the leftover batter too :) Shawshank Redemption was superlative!!!

Mathew: lol I guess from my Kerala based posts it is obvious that I am from Pala/Changanacherry :)) And SR not getting Oscars is unbelievable.
