A blogging tag about some favourite things
Nova and Suda both tagged me for this meme and well the way the tag is raging round, I guess I better do it before there is no one left to tag. In fact that has already happened I think…so here is my list…if I have not named someone, its only because I am sure they won’t take up the tag…or because they have already been tagged for this same meme. In fact I am not sure even about those in this list…but well, its okay if you don’t do the tag.
And here are my answers to the tag questions:
1. Last movie you saw in a theater?
Krazzy 4. I wanted to see it for SRK’s item number and oh yes, Raakhee Sawant’s. Now I understand why people are crazy about her.

guns, germs and steel by Jared Diamond.
3. Favorite board game?
When I used to play board games, snakes and ladders.
