Under the table and dreaming

I've received some, um, interesting e-mails the last few weeks. Some are downright scary and have been forwarded to the proper authorities. Others are just plain nice although it's strange how much you are personified by the image assumed by your blog. Like a beauty pageant contestant, here are my answers to the Q&A portion of the contest:

  • Do you have an American accent?: Yes. I came to the States when I was 2 years old and although my parents spoke Malayalam (the language of Kerala, where I'm from) at home, I have a very American accent. If I called you on the phone, you probably wouldn't know it was a girl named Mint Chutney. If you want something scary, you should hear me speak Malayalam.
  • Does D know about your blog?: No. I don't think it's a secret, I've just never mentioned it to him. He asked about all the stuff I was buying for the CD packages and I told him that I was a part of a CD tree started on a blog. That's the truth. The funny thing is he already knows 99% of what's on here.
  • Do your parents like D?: (NOTE: This was asked by 3 different people). My parents LOVE D as if he were their own son and he loves them.
  • Why don't you post a proper picture of you or your family? : Um. NO. While I have trusted a few bloggers with true images of my family, I would like to keep that part private. Why don't YOU post real pictures of you and YOUR family.

There. Now you know even more about me.

"If I called you on the phone, you probably wouldn't know it was a girl named Mint Chutney." Presumably thats not your *actual* name. :)
Just checking; Mallus are known to do strange things with names. I know of a Mallu named Xylophone, for instance.

Hey, I wanna hear you speak Malayalam. Pretty please? :-)

Fin- Very funny, everyone is a comedian these days. Mallu's prefer to end their kid's names with vowels so my name technically is Minti.

Mo- Ha! I only speak Malayalam for my hard of hearing Ammachis.

Hehe :)

Though, I do get a lot weider questions:
1. Are you for real?
No, no. I am some kind of automatically generated software, that launches itself after a certain interval!

2. Do you have any real friends?
You mean do I have friends who also happen to be automatically generated software? Na! Or do I?

3. How can we make friendship?
Rhetoric I am guessing.

4. What's your size?
Errr, that ought to be my question.

People are strange, when you are a stranger! :)

Make way for the Mallu please...

Why did the Malayali go to Rome?

To listen to "pope" music!!

That is one my favourite jokes of all time. Being Malayali I think its ok for us to make fun of ourselves... but I'm not sure why the rest of the country decided that it was most fun to make fun of us poor little Mallu things!

Jay- A mallu is the short form for Malyalee. Malyalees are people from Kerala - a state in India.

And very funny Mangs, though the Mallu pronounciation of my name was wayyyyy better than the North Indian one :-)
