2 smileys that describe my life right now

I don’t know what smileys would describe my life at this moment, but I’ve realised that my all time most used smileys are these two. I don’t remember a conversation where I haven’t used at least on of these.




The Crazy Bucket List

10 things you want to do before you die.

Well to be frank there are 395,678,342,659 things I want to do before I die. And most of them involve something extremely crazy. Going to Paris with the love of my life, scuba diving at the great barrier reef in Australia, Stuffing my face with the best of New York’s street food, going to the Oktoberfest in Germany are just some of the normal things I would do.  And I know I would do that. No matter what, these things will be marked as done on my list.

But the not so normal things I want to do are listed below. I want to do more than just these 10, but I figured I’d rather not make it official that I’m crazy but putting them out in public. 😀

Now, all these idea’s are not necessarily a fruit of my overactive imagination. I’v stolen some of them from other people.


1. Get into a cab and yell “Follow that car!”- We have seen this scene innumerable times in movies. And I’m hell bent on doing this someday.


2. Go to a stranger’s wedding and yell “Don’t marry her. I still love you” and the run away as fast as I can. I would love to stay back and look at the expression of ever person there but I’m pretty sure the wedding party would get me admitted at a mental hospital.


3. Walk up to a stranger, hand him a briefcase and whisper “You know what to do.” I would get some friend of mine to sit somewhere close by and record the reaction of that person.


4. Text “I hid the body” to a random number.


5. Go to Sydney and ask random people to help me locate ’42, Wallaby Way, Sydney‘. This address has been stuck in my head ever since I saw ‘Finding Nemo’.


6. Every time somebody asks me to do something, ask them if they need fries with that.- I have no idea why I want to do this but I’m sure a couple of times would be enough to drive everybody around me crazy.


7. Buy a parrot and teach him to say “Help! I’v been turned into a parrot!”. Oh! the joy of looking at people’s reactions.


8. Step into a crowded elevator and say with a perfectly straight face, “I’m sure you all are wondering why I’v gathered you all here today.” And when people start giving me weird expressions, act as if I’m shocked out of my wits and run out screaming.


9. Run to a stranger and look at them in horror. Then tell them with great urgency, “They found out about you. You need to leave the country as soon as possible.”


10. When I get a sales call, politely answer the phone and  In the middle of the conversation start asking them repeatedly if they believe in ghosts.

The ‘Trying To Be Normal’ Syndrome

“I was born weird. This terrible compulsion to behave normally is the result of childhood trauma ”   – Anon

This is one quote that is completely apt for my life. Anybody who knows me would agree how completely insane I can be in a world where “fitting in” is the common fad.

I’v never been what people call “normal” in my behaviour. I have to trip at least once a day, bang my knees or elbows or toes on the furniture and have completely crazy ideas about the world in general everyday!

I was born breach, i.e. upside down, so we can safely say that I’v never followed the rules and regulations of the normal world ever since the day I landed on this planet. 😛

It’s not that I’v not tried being the prim and proper girl I’m supposed to be, but it’s just too much work. I’m the kind of person who would wear the most random of clothes to work, because I really won’t bother if I’m looking good or not! Or push door that clearly say ‘pull’ just for the fun of it. Or sing on top of my voice despite the fact that I’m aware of my horribly out of tone singing abilities.

And if that is what you call crazy……


I’v been certified crazy by many a people. And I assume they would have reasons when they can see AND hear me talk to myself in a room full of people! And its not that I’m not talking to the people; I’m taking my brains opinion loudly rather than in my head. *shrugs*

OK, I admit that is weird, but hey!! In my defence, I need to get my opinions of everybody in place before I blabber  like a drunk goose!!

So yeah, in my view, I’m perfectly normal in this crazy world! With the word ‘normal’ in bold, italics font size 42.

For people who don’t understand, Oh! well your bad! 😛
