Why not?

I keep coming across this 43 things in many blogs. Why 43 and why just things to do? There are so many things that I never want to in my whole life. I am sure I never want to abducted by an alien. I don't ever want eat non-veggie food. I am never going to learn Hebrew, just as I won't be tap dancing. And come to think of it I don't care too much for getting a tattoo and I probably won't learn how to write with my left hand. How come nobody is interested in what I don't wanna do?

Just the same case with allconsuming also. I want to tell the world what I am *not* reading or watching or listening to. I want a list of things that I am not consuming. And why spare too? How about someplace where I can list the links that suck which is in My UnFavorites?

Quizilla seems to be the flavor of the day or rather the flavor of these days. I suppose it's fashionable in the blogosphere(eesh what a word!) to announce which Incredibles characters they are, what their true element is, if they are a geek or a nerd or a freak and yada yada yada. In the same vein, how about some quiz to determine which FRIENDS character I resemble the least or what is the most unlikely thing I am likely to do in a situation?

And yes the unky moods. Please I want a caricature of how I will look when I am not hungry or not puzzled or not agitated.

For everything you like, there is something you dislike in the same category, but only thing being that we just don't like talking about that. I think that is the summary of the post ... this is good analysis !!! Learning human psychology these days ???

And you want a place to put down all your unfavourites, but I thought you had just done that in the post. Is that list even bigger ? Too many unfavorites .... then I think something is wrong with you :)

@mukund - yeah precisely. just as we are passionate abt wot we like, we dislike passionately too, i.e for every *thing*, there is an *anti thing*. my rant is that we never seem to pronounce the presence of the latter.

i haven't specified my unfavorites, i've just listed a few things i won't be doing! my unfavorites is pretty vast and will be a separate post in itself! :-)

aaaah! i thought i was the only guy who ever quoted george carlin on a blog. the guy's a genius and terribly underrated. the quote i keep quoting is his defnition of "vuja de" = reverse of deja vu where you feel that "this couldn't have happened to anyone ever" :)

@sagnik - :-) To be honest I am no fan of George Carlin and in fact know nothing about him except for the famous 7 words! :-) I put in that quote 'coz it seemed to fit. Btw that vuja de is a good one. :-)
