Life is beautiful...

I unexpectedly started watching this cute movie called Ru-ba-ru yesterday and quite liked it.. It's got Randeep Hooda(isn't he hawt !!!)and Sahana Goswami(mmm...what a babe!!) in it.I thought it would one of those saccharine sweet love stories that would make me weep.. weep , i did .. for totally different reasons.. no spoilers here .. it's a lovely movie about how one shud live in "now" and not the future ..How,if you need to say "i love you to someone" you shudnt postpone it.. and Do it now !!!

I thought i shud do Nautankey's tag , while on the subject.. The list is actually amazing.. hat's off to whoever has come up with it ..I don't know whether i am living my life to the fullest now .. all that i know is that i don't want to go way with any regrets...I am not modest and must say that i have had an eventful life..not perfect and filled with a lot of incidents i possibly could'nt share with my grand children .. but, i have no complaints.It's been Fun, till now.. honest!!.
