No I don't speak latin, but as a frazzled, hassled, *slacking* med student, what comes out of my mouth sounds like Greek sometimes. Currently based nine months out of 10 in India, which would be WHY I need this blog, so yeah... *wanders off with Netters in one hand and Chaurasia in the other*

Shuffle!!

Note : VERY delayed post. Typed out abt 2 months back

I flicked this tag from Chris!! Seems interesting ^_^

1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answer to each question.
4. NO CHEATING.

***

1. How am I feeling today?
Shuffle says: Fallin' by Alicia Keys

Comment:
Interesting beginning, as I do feel somewhat off balance right now. "Falling" is an adequate word to use for that feeling. And I am Fallin' in love with the idea of changing my life right about now...


2. Where will I get married?
Shuffle says: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger by Daft Punk

Comment:
This... is amusing to say the least. I hope it relates to... oh wth, you're all thinking it anyway.


3. What is my best friend's theme song?
Shuffle says: Quando, Quando, Quando by Michael Buble and Nelly Furtado

Comment:
Quando is translated as "When". When, when, when will I ever consider anyone a best friend? I have close friend, sometime friends, hell even I-hate-your-guts-but-I'm-still-smiling friends. But I can't choose any one over the other to have a single "best" friend. That's limiting my options man


4. What was high school like?
Shuffle says: Masquerade-Why So Silent in Phantom of the Opera OST

Comment:
VERY apt. High school was five years of wearing a mile-thick mask and withholding my own opinion in most cases. I did not expect soul-baring in this... *sigh*


5. What is the best thing about me?
Shuffle says: This time I'm Free by Dr. Alban

Comment:
I do like myself a lot better now that I'm not so restricted in my words. I'm not *quite* there yet, though. I still feel stifled by the things around me, like the expectations I’m expected to live up to etc. etc. et all…


6. How is today going to be?
Shuffle says: Holler by Spice Girls

Comment:
True enough, as I'm leaving tomorrow for India. Things today will be loud, if nothing else.


7. What is in store for this weekend?
Shuffle says: Journey to the Cemetery in Phantom of the Opera OST

Comment: This...is freeeky. Title aside, this is a lovely, mostly instrumental piece that is hauntingly ominous. I… really don’t know how well this bodes for me.


8. What song describes my parents?
Shuffle says: Never Gonna Leave Your Side by Daniel Beddingfield

Comment:
I sincerely hope this describes their relationship with each other. I love them both, but there are limits to everything. It fits though, as both of them are indeed notoriously clingy. They would bind us to them, holding us to them closely.


9. How is my life going?
Shuffle says: Hindi Sad Diamonds on the Moulin Rouge OST

Comment:
Indecipherable and ungrammatical. Sounds like my life to me!!


10. What song will they play at my funeral?
Shuffle says: Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day

Comment:
Waaaaaay too apt. I hope that not too many of my dreams lie smashed in the dust when I die. At least some should be all shiny and scrubbed up.


11. How does the world see me?
Shuffle says: Full Moon by Brandy

Comment:
Either a reference to my rounded face, which generally is the first thing people notice, or the lyrics of the song, which tells of a woman’s’ irresistible attraction to a man she finds unbelievably attractive. He seems to be an amazingly talented individual *wink* I wish la…

12. What do my friends really think of me?

Shuffle says: Kiss from a Rose by Seal

Comment:
I love this song! And if I’m compared to a kiss from a rose, bringing light to the ‘grey’… I’m unbelievably flattered. I can only dream of being worthy of such love.


13. Do people secretly lust after me?

Shuffle says: Hello Africa (fast remix) by Doctor Alban

Comment:
*dies laughing* What, do I inspire ‘Tribal Love’? Ahaks, this is amazingly spot on in some way. I was feeling quite down about myself at one point, and while I was at the club, an African guy came up and invited me to ‘dance’ (Dance, the modern euphemism for surreptitious grinding) It was nice of him to do so ^_^


14. How can I make myself happy?

Shuffle says: To the moon and back by Savage Garden

Comment:
It’s true, I do need to challenge myself to actually feel that I’m achieving something, instead of merely going through the motions and barely scraping through. Oh well… “To the moon and back!!”


15. What should I do with my life?

Shuffle says: I Want to Spend My Lifetime Loving You by Tina Arena and Marc Anthony

Comment:
A world where I love God like I should is one that I aspire to *grins* A lifetime would almost be too much to ask. And someday…. I wish someone would love me like that too...


16. Will I ever have children?

Shuffle says: Only You by Ashanti

Comment:
And the shuffle has spoken!!! I am the only child of my dreams and effort!! And let's be honest here, I am hardly mother material. Waaay too many hang-ups. I shall devote myself to spoiling the offspring of those around me. Chris!! Hurry up with the adorable mixed children!!


17. What is some good advice?

Shuffle says: Get Mine, Get Yours by Christina Aguilera

Comment:
YES!! A relationship without strings is, at this point, what I aspire to. My emotions are too capricious, precarious and precious for me to entrust them to someone else. And this way, both sides are satisfied ^_^


18. What do I think my current theme song is?

Shuffle says: Livin’ on A Prayer by Bon Jovi

Comment:
Truuuuue this. I’m trusting a higher power, and going through life on a wing and a prayer. Come to think of it, that’s my approach to exams as well. But, the chorus really hits me. “Doesn’t matter if we make it or not, we’ve got each other” That’s the truth in all it’s forms. I have my friends, I have my faith, I have my family ^_^ That’s enough for me!!


19. What does everyone else think about my current life?

Shuffle says: All Nite’ (Don’t Stop) by Janet Jackson

Comment:
WHY does everyone think my life is one straight party??? (If only)... My parents think I pull all-nighter’s studying, and my acquaintances think I pull all-nighters drinking. Both would only be half right =D


20. What type of men do you like?

Shuffle says: Bintang Hati by Edlin

Comment:
Yes, someone please enter my life who will be the “Star of My Liver”. And while we’re on a wish-list, I also would like a penthouse apartment in Noo Yawk and Paris, along with a solid bank account.


21. Will you get married?

Shuffle says: Against The Wind from the Saiyuki Soundtrack

Comment:
Another amazing instrumental. And I doubt it. I could sooner go against the wind, and frankly, I’d rather go wherever the wind takes me.


22. What should I do with my love life?

Shuffle says: Fantasy by Mariah Carey

Comment:
Siiiiiiiigh. Do I create more fantasies, or live them? Tell me now, shuffle!!


23. Where will you live?

Shuffle says: Ordinary World by Duran Duran

Comment:
*blinks* I did NOT choose this song. But I suppose I’ll have to cope with reality.
There’s an ordinary world that somehow I will find.


24. What will your dying words be?

Shuffle says: Your Love is King by Sade

Comment:
I can hope my last words are of God. One free ticket to Moksha!!


25. When I'm having sex, I say...

Shuffle says: Without You Love by 5566

Comment:
Talk about your potential non-sequitor’s!!! At least it ain’t someone’s’ name!


26. When I meet a guy/girl for the first time I say...

Shuffle says: Child by Mark Owen (This song is just... bad… Off it goes!)

Comment:
Hello child, my name is Nisha and I’ll be your mommy for the day. What does it say about my state of mind that the first thing I thought after typing that sentence was “Ewwww…. Weird mother-complex fantasy.”


27. When my parents are angry I say...

Shuffle says: Hakuna Matata from the Lion King soundtrack

Comment:
Yeah!! We all move on!

***

I tag the usual suspects…
Ashan, Michelle, and Elli-chan. It would be fun to see what you guys, or rather, your players, came up with. I had to forward a number of songs for the simple reason that I couldn’t understand a word of the title or the song.
