It’s raining cats and dogs here today – flash flood warnings, the whole works (no power cut, though, for which I am infinitely thankful). Had taken little N to the mall for some clothes shopping. Our usual 15 minute drive back home took almost an hour. Came home drenched, warmed up with two cups of masala chai that N made, and decided to whip up some onion pakodas. When I was growing up, Amma used to start making bajjis or pakodas as soon as dark clouds gathered in the sky (those were the days, my friend!).
As I was deep frying, taste-testing (aaha, super-aa irukkae!!!), and thinking back to those good old pampered childhood days, I suddenly remembered a little game that my school friends and I played eight years back, when we were first re-discovering each other through Google groups. Yes, my mind makes strange, and entirely unrelated connections. Still. I am a sucker for such games, so thought I would share it here. I could not find my responses from eight years ago, would have been fun to see how (and whether) I have changed much in the past eight years. So, here goes, the questions and my answers:

Where is your significant other? In the family room, ironing out vacation plans

Ok, now answer all these questions in the comments below, or in your own blog.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with! 🙂
