WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM A FRIEND…


...I’ll try to come up with an HONEST POST. A ten-point honest (no fingers crossed, no bite-my-tongue) confession:



  1. I love shopping. And even more than that, I love shopping all by myself, without the family tagging along.

  2. I may moan and groan about being overweight, but I love eating too much to be serious about any weight-loss attempt. Whenever I lose a bit of weight, I put it right back by eating out in celebration.

  3. I always read the frivolous Mumbai Mirror before the serious Times of India, much to the chagrin of the spouse. I’m a Page-3 junkie, and I get my fix before educating myself with the Page-1 stuff.

  4. I love frothy, no-brainer chick-lit books, especially the ones written by Sophie Kinsella. And I can keep re-reading my tattered Agatha Christies forever and ever.

  5. I hate it when something I cook turns out to be not-so-good, and when people (myself included) refuse to eat it.

  6. I hate being compared unfavourably to anybody, especially the MIL.

  7. I am really, really scared of lizards.

  8. I am happiest on Saturday nights, when there’s the w—h-o-l-e of Sunday still remaining before week/work drudgery begins again.

  9. Deep-down I believe that overpopulation is the root cause of all our problems.

  10. I cry really really easily, even in front of other people, much to the spouse’s embarrassment. And when I just can’t stop, I have to pretend that something has got into my eyes and is irritating my contact lenses.
  11. And here's a bonus confession, because honesty is addictive: I have not watched a single IPL match. I OD-ed on cricket long back. Give me a Federer-Nadal tennis match anyday. On second thoughts, any match where Federer wins. Because if he loses (as he so often does nowadays) it just makes me cry all over again.

A big thanks to Sayani, who has tagged me to write this post and has given me an award to egg me on...

So, here I am, cheering you on, trying to spread honesty, now do come up with an honest confession about yourself.

Had a good laugh! Felt almost as if I was reading my confessions!!!

Lazyani said...

Candid!! I identified with a lot of it. Okay okay, I watched IPL(even though Sourav and KKR screwed up bigtime), I never have cried in public and I had great time with my MIL when she was around. The rest is what I identify with big time.

sujata said...

almost all match...apart from the crying bit. great read!!I eat chocolates without sharing with my kids..wow that's a load off the chest!!

Aparna said...

Hey you stole my confessions!!! Well; except the IPL and the crying in public part.I am also scared of all creepy-crawlies, not just lizards. The rest? Matching matching!!!

Ankit said...

Hey Sucharita

I am also scared of lizards. Scared means super scared. Can't sleep in a room if I spot one.

I am with you on saying that overpopulaion is the cause of our problems.

Here is one of my confessions to grose yo out. I don't take a shower on weekends if I don't have to leave the house absolutely. But it doesn't happen that often.

Nice on ;)

Double-Dolphin said...

I agree about the Agatha Christie. My girlfriend's scared of lizards too...hmm...maybe it's a woman thing.
And overpopulation is the root of all our problems.

Stitchwhiz said...

I've often said that overpopulation is the biggest problem, too. Although we seem to have that problem more or less fixed here in the states. I've said some provocative things in the past like "there should be more abortions, not less" and it just gets me in trouble so I don't climb up on that soap box too often. Also, if only the Pope would endorse birth control, maybe we'd start to have world peace!

Like your Agatha Christies, too. Agatha is my middle name:-) Needless to say, I've always been a fan of her writing. Nice post, thanks for sharing. It's a great way to learn more about each other. ...........Mary

Sumandebray said...

That was quite Ingenuous! .. Now we know a little bit about you.Do we?
Not everyone can indulge in the niceties of life. Live life King-size as they say!

nsiyer said...

Some of these except cooking and cricket, I am cent per cent with you. To cook, I do not know, and I love cricket especially when my favourite cricketers play.
Enjoyed being tagged.

Sucharita Sarkar said...

Hi Suma,

Great to meet another Christie-fan!

@ NSIyer,

All men are cricket-addicts!

Sara said...

mesoliloquy said...

I am a Page 3 junkie myself. Love me gossips. :))

Jyothi said...

Wow....Good ones!!!It would be a perfect Match except for the fact that I watched some parts of the Final IPL match. Not a big Cricket fan.

Pradip Biswas said...

The confessions you made are common to many and I am one of them. They nicely potray your character and may get connected to some of my story characters.
