The Quartet Meme

I was going to post about the captain leaving his sinking ship in Egypt. (Which Emory wrote about quite well) And the intensifying Muslim reaction to the Danish cartoons but.. I decided on a fun post. After all, Baji tagged me. When your baji tells you to do something, you must comply! [p.s.: Ali/Aamir: elmo balloon? still up. The digital is dead or I'd upload it for your viewing pleasure] [p.s.s: To those who've heard the familiar lament, I am finally nose-ring-less. Nail clippers were involved. I miss it. ]

sorry chica, have yet to find a meme interesting enough to me to do :)

you worked for the sentinel? I really like that paper! It looks fun to write for...

Also, working in a book store sounds like a total dream to operating a choco factory, of course :)

2 Qs:

Pyasa - is that old one?
What dish is Chanai?

Aisha said...

Shabs.. boo! you meme snob you! :) Yeah I freelanced for a year for them, it was great. And working at a bookstore is FUN. Great conversations bc the people were all very educated in awesome majors like "art history" etc. AND you get to borrow books up to two weeks at a time! :)

Mystic: Yes the old one have you seen it? Chanai.. The chickpea desi dish :)

Mystic, pyasaa has many layers. The song in it that I relate to is "Yain dunya ugr mil bi jayain tho kya hain" It's a good song. Chanai, ofcourse you've heard of it.. also known as cholay? The books I added to the meme. I've seen it on some and not others.

mystic-soul said...

Oh ya !!. Its a complex story and fight of one's inner with outer crude world. 4 characters of movie actually represents 4 type of people around us.

1. Vijay (as name means winner) - on quest of search of truth.

2. Ghulab (as name means fragrance) - she is constant spiritual strength to vijay !

3. Meena (as name means wine/alcohol) - confuse between true love and materialism.

4. Ghosh (as name means far or dark - Is it?) purely materialistic man.

I still enjoy song.."sir jo tera chakraaye"..

Hun..Chenai.. never heard, never ate. I was tagged by Baji too and realized I didn't put my 4 fav. books too but updated after reading your tag. Anyway.

added later: it.

say what? said...

Thats really clever. You were supposed to tag 4, and you tagged 11. LOL

That Sound of music movie! That sounds real romantic :))

And hey you like Meg Ryan movies too :D yippie. I went crazy about her after watching city of angels. heh. She might be old but shes stunning still :D

wayfarer said...

I thought you had already been tagged or i would have tagged you. Anyhoooo, Little Dude says he wants to see you. Wanna do dinner sometime soon?

Aisha said...

TDH: lol yeah. well maybe its childhood inferiority complex at being able to tag NO ONE so I end up tagging more than needed :) Meg Ryan *is* adorable. Sound of Music is a fun musical.

Wayfarer, yes! we really need to figure something out :)

Boxin your welcome

Tee said...

Thanks for tagging me but I've done this one last month! :)

Ok, questions and comments. LOL...

You lived in Maryland??! No freaking way! That's my home state :) I love you even more now... How completely weird would it be if we had crossed paths, been in the same vicinity before? I just got shivers. Life is so strange.

I must see Office Space. Everyone is always making references which I don't get - having not seen it.

What is Chanai?

Aisha said...

Hey Tee... I thought you'd been tagged.. it seems almost everyone has already been tagged! I'm always the last on the train :) Kind of like elem school I guess :)

Chanai is a chickpea dish from Pakistan. It's basically chickepas cooked into sauteed onions and tomatoes with chili and salt and a blend of a few other spices. It's delicious and easy :)

Maryland, well I lived there a LONG time ago. I was only 1, lol. But I visit ALL the time bc/ I have relatives there in the Germantown area. Though they used to live in Gaithersburg. Have you heard of those areas? I used to go twice a year and now about once a year....You're in WV right? I claim to have been there b/c we always go to Harpers Ferry which straddles Va,MD and VW :)

Office Space is awesome. I dont kow why it struck such a funny bone nerve in me. I have two copies! The old one and the special edition :( That bad... If you've ever worked in an office or weith a printer you will find this movie entertaining :)

I love to hear from you!
