Tagged by Twinkletoes!

Of late, I've been feeling quite lazy about blogging but when a sweet person like Twinkletoes tags you, you just have to do it. So here I go:

1.LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN A THEATER:

Om Shanti Om!
It's a long story. One morning, Mahi woke up and declared: Om Shanti Om! I have to see it to-day. So, off we went in the evening to Lamcy but it was running houseful and so we drove all the way to Ibn Battuta Mall only to discover that only the front rows were available. You should have seen Mahi's face. So we booked for the next morning, took her to her favourite fast food joint and then drove home. Next morning we skipped church and watched OSO with empty balcony seats for company. But it was worth all that trouble... we enjoyed it thoroughly, though the story lacked originality and stuff like that.

2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING?

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. Reading it for the second time and still loving it. Loved his first book as well

3. FAVORITE BOARD GAME?

Any board game reminds me of the long lazy summer afternoons I spent during my childhood, playing indoor board games as it was too hot outside. Snakes and Ladders,Monopoly, Ludo....btw,can we include carroms? Scrabble, no doubt , is my eternal favourite

Great concept to understand yourself and the current situations you have with yourself.I will be copying the concept with a different set of questions,a retrospection of myself is long forgotten and urgently needed
