A tale of two MEMEs and a Guess!

A Mid name Meme..

This had been a pending post since I had been asked to do a 'Middle name Meme' by Bharathy. Bharathy was kind enough to console me that is fine if I dont' like or even have a middle name

Here are the rules:

* Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
* When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
* At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag.
* Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged.

I don't have a middle name, I am always either called Srivalli or just Valli by friends. Infact it was endearing to be called Sri by most bloggers as I call my brother that. So will settle on a fictitious name I always thought was appropriate to many things in this drama called life. MAYA, its also a name I used to pen by some years ago.

So here are few things that I related too

Meticulous - I am quite meticulous in most things that I do. Even mundane routine tasks never bore me. Infact I love to do the same thing every day the same way. But I embrace change too.

Auspicious - I feel there is no time as auspicious time. Any time is good enough to do a good thing. And anytime is good enough to end a bad thing.

Yearning - I yearn for those mystic things that come and whisper while I am in my no man's land.

Avaricious- I scorn avariciousness in any nature.

Phew ..happy I was able to complete this and now trying to tag people with these alphabets! I guess doing this MEME was easier than trying to figure who to tag.

M - Manisha
A - Asha
Y - Unfortunately I know none with a name starting with Y who also blogs, so this is open to anybody is willing to play along.
A - Archana

Fantastic Four MEME

Lakshmi tagged me for the Fantastic Four MEME. So here I go on some random facts about me in “fours”:

4 Places I’ve lived:

I have been living in Madras for more than 20 years. Previous to that have been places I don't really remember much. So I will try to give the best shot I can. Since I spend or rather live in office for most of my waking hours will prefer giving that

1. 10 years in Perambur - Chennai
2. 15 years in Nungambakkam - Chennai
3. T- Nagar - Office
4. Mylapore - Office

4 Jobs I’ve had:

In reel life aka my dreams, I had wanted to be a doctor plus world renowned painter plus great singer plus famous chef. In real life I have always been a software professional! The pitiful life of a software professional who does nothing else but gazing at the monitor all the waking hours with
no hands on experiments to aid the ill but to google it
nor any hue to hand but the MS paint to rescue
nor raaga flowing from within other than Kishore Kumar husking at the ears (albeit thats been sometime ago)
nor any aromas whisking the nostrils just these wonderful food blogs to gaze and rejoice.

4 Favorite places I’ve holidayed:


4 Favorite foods:

Well I am fond of eating period, but if you insist

Parotta with Paneer Butter Masala
Idlies with Amma's Parrupu Podi
Pulihora with Groundnut chutney

4 Places I’d rather be:

I have just two fond places I rather be.
Home where I would want to be right now with my kids.
Lying on my mother's lap - with my daughter around I never get access.

4 Bloggers I’d like to tag:

1. Asha
2. Padma
3. Nirmala
4. Sharmi

Play along if you are inclined no compulsion.

Now coming to the guess game. Let me know what you call the veggie you find in the picture.

Come back tomorrow for the answer!
