Greetings fellow deranged-and-utterly-disturbed aspiring authors =)

This page is called my profile. This is about me. Moi. Yo. Ich. Mim.

WARNING: If you do not wish to feel like an epic failure, daft ass or a half-witted dope – read the following very carefully.


My goals in life may not be to go to Harvard or win the Nobel Prize, but I would appreciate it if you'll stop laughing at me - this is the best I can do. 

No. 10) To have a nice, corny, cheesy Hollywood romance would be lovely. 

No. 84) To read ‘Ulysses’. Without falling asleep after ten pages. 

No. 43) To do ‘The New York Times’ crossword in pen – no mistakes whatsoever.

No. 19) To die painlessly in my sleep. I do not wish to be murdered, unlike someone I know.


Random Facts, which may possibly be intriguing (although, if you think about it, who the hell cares about my favorite ice cream flavor or how much I suck at math?):

No. 75) My favorite ice cream flavor is anything with berries or coffee. Not berries and coffee, mind you.

No. 74) I never eat the egg yolk unless scrambled. 

No. 31) I only eat raisins in oatmeal cookies.

No. 31) I learned practically every sport I know from my brothers - they used me as a prop in their demonstrations of exactly what not to do.

No. 10) Post-its are my organization tools. They’re color-coded. My friends have a laugh about that all the time.

No. 90) There are a couple talents of mine that I wish I didn't have. 

No. 88) I can speak Gangsta Hindi. Yeah, that's right. Choup yaar!

No. 66) I love to imitate the English accent.

No. 25) I woke up one morning, and my favorite ring no longer fit me. 

No. 82) My 'U.S. History for Dummies' has been sitting on my bookshelf, untouched for about three months. Don't blame me, blame IB.
