my word

Apparently every city has a word. A word as in another name that the city is called/described with. Nope, not another concept I conjured up with... Was watching "Eat Pray Love" and this was something discussed in the movie (also the book).

On a separate note, I tried reading the book but I felt it was such a drag. I dragged myself through Italy and once she landed in India, I quit! I know this book by Elizabeth Gilbert was highly praised to say the least but it just wasn't my cup of tea. I think the story was truly remarkable, but the style of writing was very long-winded. By the time she got to the end of describing something, I forget what the something is in the first place! Of course, this is only my opinion of the book and I know many others have enjoyed it thoroughly.

So I opted for the movie and there was this scene where she would be asked, "What's your word?" And I've been pondering since last nite... So what is MY Word? Do I have a Word???

could Greg Behrendt be right?

that he is just not that into you?

I actually bought this book a couple of years back. But someone borrowed it and never gave me back. I tried asking them a couple of times, but to no avail... And now I am not interested to ask or get the book back from this person. So I went out and bought a new one. (I've also learned the lesson of not letting anyone have my books anymore!) An expanded version nonetheless

What I like most about this book is the honest, no-nonsense approach. Sometimes, I find it a bit harsh but in retrospect, it does seem to make sense. Its especially handy when we start making excuses for certain apparently "unexplainable" behaviour of the opposite sex. Its all explainable! Its us who sometimes are in such denial when faced with the object of our affection/love/lust! 

So yes, I've stop making excuses, stopped analysing what I could have done wrong and tell myself, "He is just not that into me!" Its nothing personal.
