Silly things

I is for….

Somehow, I realise that half my memes are offloaded this way by this fellow called Hucks, who merrily tagged me when I decided to open my heart and share my innermost secret with him. And he just has to give me a letter which is so darn difficult. Grr.

Comment on this entry and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter in your journal, including an explanation what the word means to you and why, and than pass out letters to those who want to play along.

Here goes….

1. I is for iMac
My baby, the most expensive thing I have ever bought for myself. It’s lasted me for exactly four years now and it’s still going strong. Rock on, Apple!

2. I is for iPod
I really wouldn’t know what I would do if I do not have my 5G iPod. I am so spoilt these days, tuning into my favourite teevee shows while on the train, on the bus, anywhere actually. So, rock on, Apple! Last I heard, Creative suffered a loss in their last financial quarter. Pardon me while I go off to smirk.

3. I is for ice-cream
I have a sweet tooth and I lurrrve ice-cream. Last night, it was two tubs of Ben and Jerry’s and today, it was Island Creamery at Serene Centre. And this is why the boyfriend is so cute and tubby and has hence lost his bet with me (Bangkok, here I come!).

4. I is for India
Definitely one of the places that I want to backpack through before I grow up and become a spoilt adult who only wants air-conditioning and soft, comfortable beds when she travels.

5. I is for irritating
This is on my list of most-used words. Frequently preceded by “bloody” and followed by a variety of unmentionables (this is a child-safe site).

6. I is for Imogen Heap
A great singer whom I discovered last year. Amazing, unique vocals and catchy tunes.

7. I is for inspiration
All creative people will attest to the fact that without inspiration, our work is like a bottle of flat soda, bland and stale. Not sure why but I find myself bereft of inspiration lately. The best artists are those who can create sparks out of the most ordinary events and sadly, I can’t seem to see the best in these little things anymore. I keep thinking that my best writing years are over, I am just as mediocre as your next blogger who talks of nothing but what she ate and did today. Sometimes, people like O2 and monoceros puts me to shame.

8. I is for insecurity
There are those who seem to be blessed with healthy amounts of confidence and then, there are those who never seem to have enough. I hover between the edge of both, often creating unnecessary emotional distress by thinking about things that should hardly matter. Not many people know this but the crazy, loud-mouthed facade is often nothing more than a mask to cover up the inadequacies felt within (see above).

9. I is for imagination
While I may lack self-belief sometimes, I certainly am in no danger of suffering from a lack of imagination. Give me an idea and I can push it to a region far outerworldly than you can ever, well, imagine. When I was 10, I was Prince Harry’s wife and riding a horse. Hah.

10. I is for….I
I, me, myself. Despite everything, I am actually a pretty happy person. I don’t have hangups, don’t desire to put on weight to look good, don’t care much for getting bigger boobs, don’t think twice about going to town in nothing but my bare face, specs, singlet, sweat pants and slippers. I’m sort of cruising through life contentedly and it’s fine just the way it is.

There! Boy, was that tough.
