From quite an unexpected corner…

Came a tag!!! I do check out her blog(her sisters too) regularly but a tag all the way from Holland(rt?) was a pleasant surprise :)

The tag has been doing the rounds for quite sumtime now. 1 or 2 weeks back, all I used to come across in my daily blog-hopping was this tag.And now my take on it (whatever u r going to read is going to sound like an avial of all the previous ones u have read and i don’t like avial much)

1)LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN A THEATER: Race,but that brings back some nightmares. I(rather the melodramatic in me) thought that I was going to die that day.The movie has got nothing to wth dt, I didn’t evn “see” the movie.i was just waiting for the movie to end so that I can get home n start scratching my face(see me n my roomie need a regular dose of culinary disasters to keep us going and had a ceremonious dinner at ruby Tuesday dt evng and i ended up with rashes all over my face ,sum food allergy it was)

Maybe I shud leave it to my father(I simply adore my name even if I have to spell it every time I introduce myself and even if its quite often mistaken for a guys name. once my name was announced in sunday school as “pulikkottil francis makan anphy” and every1 was looking towards the boys section when I stood up)
But there is one name which i am really fond of(not necessarily as the future child's name)-Daniel :)

The difference

btw me n my father........

I have never seen him fretting about his income, he always worries about the expenditures
and me?? I am always worried about my income but not my expenditures (ok, i do get a lil feeling of guilt after the splurge but my "there is no use crying over spilt milk" avatar takes over pretty fast)

But I do have a reputation as a miser(i have self confessed it a few times too) :D
Its just a matter of perspectives I will say :P
