My favourite things

This is what Julie Andrews had to say in The Sound of Music:

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,
brown paper packages tied up with strings,
these are a few of my favorite things.

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels,
door bells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles.
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings.
these are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes,
snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes,
silver white winters that melt into springs,
these are a few of my favorite things.

When the dog bites, when the bee stings,
when I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
and then I don't feel so bad.









My favourite things include:

1. Mom waking me up in the morning by planting kisses on my face
2. An unexpected gift, with lots of wrapping ..and the anticipation associated with it while I unwrap it :)
3. A bash in the middle of the night when my friends surprise me on my birthday
4. A cute puppy playing by the road..better still..lots of puppies :P and their wet noses when they try to bury their heads in my hands
5. A toothless grin of an infant
6. A wild flower growing by the hedge
7. A ray of sunshine through the leaves of a bough
8. Patterns made by traffic lights on the wall of my room when I have retired to bed
9. Fireflies in a field at night
10. Lying on my back on a grassy lawn and gazing at a sky full of stars
11. Waking up to the call of someone I was dreaming about
12. Being reminded of an old song I had forgotten the lyrics of
13. Call/Mail from a long lost friend
14. Giving the last exam
15. 40+ comments on any of my posts :p

The list is endless :)..Thankfully

Shreyas said...

Rohit Arondekar said...

Interesting blog you've got here!! Mine looks so DULL now :( ...

Aparna Kar said...

Funny quote of the Day

U love someone.. U marry someone else...
The one u marry becomes ur wife or husband.
And the one u loved becomes the password of ur mail id :P


Any more contributors?

Aparna Kar said...

@Rohit
Not at all!!]

I think ur blog space rocks..
could take a few tips from u :)

Want this place to evolve gradually..
Just as I am evolving as an individual..

Aparna Kar said...

@Shreyas
Thanks for the effort..
And I think u r quite right here when u said that sometimes it gets too poetic for realism ...

What I am projecting here is probably the world as I want to see it..

Could be a "divorce from reality" to borrow the phrase from someone..

But I try to puts facts as they are...
with "window dressing"?

maybe...

Krishnan said...

Hi,

The FTP site from which you play "Favourite things" does have other songs from Sound of Music, but the yodelling song is missing.

Any ideas where I can find it?

Thanks,
Krishnan

Rohit Arondekar said...

Hmmm I've added you to my blog roll, add me too *poke* ... :D

Aparna Kar said...

@ rohit
k done :)

Aparna Kar said...

@krishnan
will find out and let u know..even I need that song..

Aparna Kar said...

@krishnan
oops..I mean "want"..
there's a helluva diference between the two..
came back to do some nitpicking..coz it clashes with my philosophy of life..

Aparna Kar said...

@shreyas

Someone asked me recently...
Have u tried looking at urself as Aparna the person..and Aparna the enchantress with words?

I replied
No
Why?
Are they different?
Maybe Aparna the person is more spontaneous and alive


So when u think the posts r crossing the realms of realism..remember it was written by someone as real as the lizard on ur wall
Lolzzz

I don't fancy myself as a reptile though.. :D
