These are a Few of My Favorite Things

Some time back, I came across Anoop’s blog where he mentioned that a day without updating the blogΒ is like a year without the rain. I could resonate with his thoughts and so, I decided to go forΒ this meme. I came across it on Preeti Shenoy‘s blog a couple of weeks back and was saving it (The title too) for the future. Alas! The future is here. πŸ˜‰

  4. Food –Β Pizza and some home made specialties.

    It was nice knowing about your favorites. We are spot on about purple and black, A R Rehman, Harry Potter πŸ™‚ But not HIMYM. I used to like it but they ruined the ending for me πŸ™ But the previous episodes, I enjoyed them.

    1. Ranju

      Woah! Those 3 contribute to about 90% of my favorites.
      Oh yeah. They did spoil the ending. But the experience was awesome. πŸ™‚
      Nothing could give me that kind of excitement πŸ™‚

    1. Ranju

      Hey Tara! Thats awesome! πŸ˜€ Ok let me make this clear. By hangout, do you mean the same cafe or just another cafe near your house? I ask this assuming you are in Kochi. πŸ™‚

    1. Ranju

      Same pinch! πŸ˜€ I think there are more Friends lovers than HIMYM lovers. I like both. Though, since I watched HIMYM first, that is the best πŸ˜‰
