BITS AND PIECES OF ME!!!

WELL I HAVE BEEN BLOGGING FOR CLOSE TO A MONTH NOW AND HAVE GOT 1016 PAGE VIEWS AS OF THIS MOMENT. I AM PRETTY THRILLED AND HAVE PLANNED A LITTLE,SECRET CELEBRATION FOR MYSELF WHEN I HIT 2000 PAGE VIEWS!!! COME ON FOLKS..HELP ME IN MY MISSION!! READ, READ AND READ SOME MORE....MY BLOG SPECIFICALLY!

IN LIGHT OF THE ABOVE, I FEEL THAT I OWE MY READERS-YOU- A LITTLE GLIMPSE INTO MY PERSONAL LIFE AND FOR YOU TO GET TO KNOW ME A LITTLE BETTER AND FIGURE OUT WHAT REALLY MAKES ME TICK OR WHAT REALLY GETS MY GOAT!!

TO GET GOING AND TO FEEL MOTIVATED, I HAVE DECIDED TO ANSWER A FEW (NOT ALL!) QUESTIONS ABOUT MYSELF...SOME TRIVIAL AND SUPERFICIAL AND SOME MORE DEEP AND MEANINGFUL. THIS IS A JOURNEY THAT I AM STARTING IN A HOPE NOT ONLY FOR YOU TO DISCOVER ME BUT  ALSO IN A HOPE FOR ME TO DISCOVER MYSELF AND WHAT I REALLY BELIEVE IN AND STAND FOR!!

SO LETS START:

WHATS YOUR NAME? MY NAME IS SHEEBA A.K.A SHEEBU,SHEEBI,SHEEBERS AND SABUNI (COINED BY MR. C).

HOW OLD ARE YOU? I AM NOT GOING TO GIVE YOU A SPECIFIC ANSWER. LETS SAY IN MY MID-THIRTIES!

WHAT ARE YOUR CURRENT LIVING ARRANGEMENTS? I CURRENTLY LIVE IN NEW DELHI,INDIA. THERE'S ME,MY DARLING (!!!) HUSBAND, MY TWO BRATTY BOYS THAT DRIVE ME BATTY, MY DOG ROMEO WHO HAPPENS TO BE THE NEEDIEST DOG IN THE WORLD AND LITERALLY LICKS ME TO DEATH AND MY VERY SWEET BUT INEFFICIENT STAFF WHO DRIVE ME LOONY SOMETIMES WITH THEIR DISORGANISATION AND BLANK LOOKS!!!

HOW DID YOU NAME YOUR BLOG? I AM A BIT OF A MAD,CRAZY PERSON SO HAVE A BIT OF A MAD,CRAZY LIFE. THE CHOICE WAS OBVIOUS.

WHAT WERE YOUR ASPIRATIONS WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER? PLEASE DON'T LAUGH BUT I WANTED TO BE A BOLLYWOOD HEROINE FOLLOWING ON THE PATHS OF ZEENAT AMAN OR PARVEEN BABI. WANTED TO BE VIEWED AS THIS UTTERLY BOHEMIAN,INDEPENDENT,STRONG WOMAN WHO LIVED LIFE ON HER OWN TERMS AND WAS UTTERLY GORGEOUS AND BROKE HEARTS LEFT,RIGHT AND CENTER!!! I RECALL THAT LATER ALSO WANTED TO BE A SINGER LIKE ALISHA CHINAI BUT SADLY I REALISED VERY EARLY ON THAT I BRAY WORSE THAN A DONKEY AND SHOULDN'T INFLICT THAT EVEN ON THE PEOPLE CLOSEST TO ME.

WHAT IS YOUR IDEAL JOB? I WOULD LOVE TO BE A WRITER. I LOVE TO SEE A FINISHED PIECE AND KNOW THAT IT WAS A CREATION OF MY MIND AND MY THOUGHTS. WRITING IS A VERY CREATIVE PROCESS AND TAKES TIME,EFFORT AND COMMITMENT-A HUGE AMOUNT OF COMMITMENT AND DISCIPLINE. I LOVE KNOWING THAT I HAVE AT LEAST SOME OF THOSE QUALITIES  AND THAT YOU-MY READERS- ARE ACTUALLY READING SOMETHING THAT IS A PART OF ME AND HOPEFULLY ENJOYING IT. FINGERS AND TOES CROSSED!!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE? I ADORE 'KAL HO NA HO" IN THE BOLLYWOOD FILMS BECAUSE IT HAS A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING THAT APPEALS TO ME-HUMOUR,ROMANCE,MISCHIEF,TRAGEDY. AMONG THE HOLLYWOOD  MOVIES I LOVE 'LOVESTORY" MORE OR LESS FOR THE SAME REASONS AS ENUMERATED ABOVE.

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN FIVE YEARS? I SEE MYSELF AS FREE IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS NOT THAT I AM BOUND AND SHACKLED RIGHT NOW BUT FREE FROM THE CONSTANT RESPONSIBILITY OF TENDING TO MY KIDS AND WORRYING ABOUT THEM. MY ELDER SON WOULD BE THROUGH COLLEGE AND THE YOUNGER ONE JUST GETTING READY FOR IT. I AM HOPING THAT IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS I CAN GET A CAREER AND PERHAPS BE IN A BETTER PLACE MENTALLY. I AM WORKING ON  MY PLANS TO ATTAIN BIGGER,BETTER THINGS FOR THE FUTURE.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BOOK OF ALL TIME? "THE SECRET" BY RHONDA BRYNE. I TURN TO IT EVERY TIME I AM FEELING LOW AND DOWN AND IT ALWAYS MANAGES TO UPLIFT MY SPIRITS AND MOOD.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST AFRAID OF? DEATH AND LONELINESS. THOUGH I THINK I COPE WITH BEING ALONE QUITE WELL. I HAVE A HUSBAND WHO WORKS THE MOST OBSCENE HOURS AND TRAVELS OUT OF TOWN AT LEAST TEN DAYS A MONTH SO I HAVE MANAGED TO BEFRIEND MYSELF AND FIND THE SILENCES QUITE COMFORTING AT TIMES.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE? "BE WHO YOU ARE AND SAY WHAT YOU FEEL BECAUSE THOSE WHO MIND DON'T MATTER AND THOSE WHO MATTER DON'T MIND"--DR. SEUSS

WHAT WAS YOUR CHILDHOOD LIKE? MY CHILDHOOD WAS DIFFICULT TO PUT IT POLITELY. MY FATHER WAS QUITE FOND OF THE ODD DRINK OR TWO AND WAS QUITE THE LADIES MAN AND PASSED AWAY WHEN I WAS TWELVE. TIMES WERE DIFFICULT AND CHALLENGING BUT THAT PHASE TOO PASSED.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE YOURSELF FIVE YEARS AGO? FIVE YEARS FROM NOW? FIVE YEARS AGO I WOULD HAVE TOLD MYSELF TO LET THINGS GO. I WOULD HAVE EXPLAINED TO MYSELF THAT WHAT SEEMS SO OBSESSIVELY IMPORTANT NOW ,WILL REALLY  HAVE NO MEANING TOMORROW. I WOULD HAVE TOLD MYSELF TO SURROUND MYSELF WITH POSITIVE/HAPPY PEOPLE AND LET GO OF SITUATIONS AND PEOPLE WHICH GET ME DOWN.FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS I WILL REPEAT THE SAME THINGS TO MYSELF. I WANT TO KEEP FOCUSED ON MYSELF AND MY NEEDS/DESIRES/GOALS AND HAPPINESS. EVERYTHING ELSE WILL FALL INTO PLACE.

HOW DO YOU WANT TO BE REMEMBERED BY PEOPLE? I WANT TO BE REMEMBERED AS SOMEONE WHO WAS LOVING,WARM,GENEROUS,OUTSPOKEN,OUTGOING AND OUTRAGEOUS-LIVED HER LIFE TO THE FULLEST!!

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? I CRIED LAST NIGHT. I FIND TEARS VERY CLEANSING AND FUNNILY ALWAYS  FEEL BETTER AND BRIGHTER AFTER A GOOD CRY. I CRY OFTEN-TEARS DO HEAL ME! I AM A SENSITIVE PERSON AND ALSO BAWL WHEN I AM REALLY PISSED OFF!!

YOUR BIGGEST PET PEEVE? I HATE PEOPLE WHO TALK DOWN TO ME.

WHAT KIND OF A DRUNK ARE YOU? FORTUNATELY I DON'T GET DRUNK TOO OFTEN!! ONCE IN A BLUE MOON WHEN WE ARE CELEBRATING AN OCCASION OR SOMETHING ,THEN I CONFESS THAT I REALLY OVER DO IT AND AM A VERY BADLY BEHAVED DRUNK! I GET OVERLY EMOTIONAL AND GO AROUND EXPRESSING MY DEEPEST AFFECTION TO ALL THOSE WHO ARE CLOSE TO ME, I LOSE ALL SENSE OF BALANCE AND KEEP TRIPPING MUCH TO MR.C'S EXTREME EMBARRASSMENT AND DISCOMFITURE. I AM FAR TOO HONEST TO DRINK BECAUSE I DON'T THINK BEFORE I SPEAK AND JACK DANIEL'S REALLY LOOSENS UP MY TONGUE!

WHAT DO YOU OFFER TO A RELATIONSHIP? I OFFER DEEP/ABIDING LOVE AND EQUAL RESPECT.I AM ALSO A DEEPLY PASSIONATE PERSON WHO NEVER HOLDS BACK IN SHOWING GENUINE AFFECTION. I OFFER THAT I WILL DO UNTO YOU ONLY AS YOU DO UNTO ME.

WHAT MAKES YOU REALLY ANGRY? LONG LIST....BUT TO NAME A FEW....PEOPLE WHO PUT OTHERS DOWN,MEN HITTING WOMEN,RAPE,VIOLENCE,CHILD ABUSE,IGNORANCE,SELF-ABSORBED,INCONSIDERATE PEOPLE,PEOPLE WHO SET OUT TO HURT OTHER PEOPLE INTENTIONALLY.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN FATE AND DESTINY? YES I DO. I BELIEVE EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. AND ONE CAN NEVER FIGHT THE WILL OF GOD!!

WHAT STEREOTYPE DO PEOPLE MAKE BASED ON YOUR APPEARANCE? I THINK THEY THINK I AM JUST THIS DUMB BIMBETTE BECAUSE I AM PRETTY. THAT I DON'T HAVE A MIND OR A BRAIN OR A VIEW POINT. MOST PISSING OFF!

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT THE CITY YOU LIVE IN? WHAT DO YOU HATE? I LOVE THE CONSTANT CHAOS,THE EXCITEMENT,THE SIGHTS AND SMELLS....I HATE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME!

ARE YOU SURE OF WHAT YOU WANT TO DO IN LIFE? NOT AT ALL--NEVER HAVE BEEN AND NEVER WILL BE. I CHANGE MY MIND ALMOST DAILY ON MY LIFE'S DIRECTION...SO I TRY AND STICK WITH THE FEW THINGS THAT I ENJOY CONSISTENTLY LIKE WRITING AND MUSIC!!!!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVE SMELL? SOUND? I LOVE THE SMELL OF JASMINE FLOWERS. I LOVE THE SOUND OF A BABY'S GLEEFUL LAUGHTER-IT'S THE MOST PLEASING SOUND IN THE WORLD TO ME.

WHAT'S YOUR VIEW ON RELIGION? I BELIEVE IN ALL RELIGIONS AND RESPECT ALL OF THEM BECAUSE ESSENTIALLY EVERY RELIGION PREACHES THE SAME. ALL RELIGIONS HAVE EQUAL REPRESENTATION IN MY HOUSE AND WE CELEBRATE ALL THE MAJOR FESTIVALS.
