I is for, Me, Myself and I

I is for--In case you were wondering--Introducing myself! If you've been reading my blog for awhile and don't know who I am yet, I'm impressed. Thank you for reading. If you do know who I am, then I hope I can make this interesting for you!

I've been looped into this particular topic by reading all the delightfully creative posts on this meme all afternoon. It seems like it would be such fun to write about myself, to whip up something wonderful and amazing, just like all those talented bloggers.


Until I sat down to write it.

'Cause when I sat down to write it, I had to think about it and when I thought about it, I realized something *le gasp* I really don't like rambling on about myself--at least, not when I'm told to. So I actually tried to push this off on my problem-solving division and it kicked back a rather acceptable idea, so I scrounged around the house for a copy of Reader's Digest and figured I'd do a mini interview like the ones they have in the MiscDigest section.

So, here we go.

Sara and Pepper
Sara Harricharan is a multitasking fairy, undiscovered manicure artist, talented Indian cook, creatively addicted writer/author and connoisseur of chocolate chip cookies. 

What she's reading: G.K. Chesterton's The Father Brown Mysteries, the entire collection, on my Nook.

What she's plugging: Her first Ebook ever, Trial by Fire and a vegetarian lifestyle, the Indian way. ^_~

What she's listening to: Francesca Battistelli "Beautiful, Beautiful" and "Motion of Mercy." Soundtrack from Jab We Met "Mauja Hi Mauja", and Shakira's "Waka Waka, Esto es Africa"

The Miracle Train Conductors!
What she's watching:  BBC's Sherlock, Season Two of Murder, She Wrote, Toriko and The Great Miracle Train. 

Where she's surfing:  Google Plus, also known as G+ It rocks. Hands down, no contest. Can't wait for more people to get on there, it's an amazing new social platform--simple and headache-free, just like what I'd expect from Google.

What she's doing right now: Eating lunch, Fried Indian Dumplings and vegetarian chicken and tomato stew.

If she ruled the world, she would: Insist that people read books from different countries and cultures, so what they can't see for themselves, they can experience through the written word. If we all knew some of the finer points of cultural and ethnic differences, there would be far more understanding and discerning human beings on planet earth.

If she had to describe herself in two words: Quietly creative.

Thing she would never be caught without : Mint Lipbalm

Her Reader's Digest version of life and work:  Stand up, speak out, sit down shut up, learn to care and learn to bear(because the burdens we carry are not always so insignificant).

And that's me, RD style--*cheering*.

Thanks for stopping by~!

And now I'm hungry for a fried Indian dumpling, because that sounds really, really good.
