Rajesh's Sweater Vest

For those of you who have not yet seen my “Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty” post, this is probably news to you: I’M OBSESSED WITH THE BIG BANG THEORY. Picking a favorite character is impossible since they’re all incredibly brilliant and have their own distinctive styles, but I have quite a fondness for Rajesh Koothrappali. He’s just so endearing. 
Along with our mutual affection for sweater vests, Raj and I have a lot in common. The most obvious similarity is our pouty, puppy dog, brown eyes. Aren’t we precious?

In social situations Raj is usually the fourth wheel on the tricycle, poor baby. I too end up the wall flower in most social scenes, not that I mind much. Actually, I prefer it. That’s where Raj and I are different.

Though Raj is from India, he hates Indian cuisine. I don’t care much for it either, but I don’t care for the spicy, burn-your-taste-buds-off kind of food anyway.
Raj does practice Hindu religious principles when it suits him, and he practices yoga. I practice yoga on a semi-daily basis, too. Like Raj, I like to use yoga to calm my mind in uncomfortable social situations.

Raj is frightened to death of women. He uses yoga techniques so that he can stand in the same room as them “without urinating.” I’m not afraid of women (considering I am one), but the tiny, angry Vietnamese ladies at the nail salon my mom likes frighten me just a little.


And I should mention that Raj is a brilliant astro-physicist. Well, I’m no physicist, but I got a B in my astronomy class last year. So we could talk about solar flares and other space stuff if Raj had consumed enough alcohol to make conversing with me comfortable.

  1. Hehe...Raj looks a little goofy but cute. But you are a lot cuter of course, maybe a bit of the eyes but I would stop at that. Nice pink vest, I like the softness of the color and material, looks great with the cute shirt. Raj probably need a major style revamp.


  2. I think I might be Wolowitz

  3. I've never really gotten into Big Bang Theory but my friends and nerdy co-workers all love it. This sweater vest is so cute though! I love the owl pin with it.

  4. I think you two must have been separated at birth. Your sweater vest totally puts his to shame :) If you ever need a friend to discuss black holes with, I'm your gal.

  5. This post made me smile the biggest smile!

  6. love the big bang theory! and the sweaters!

  7. Such an awesome blog post!

    Raj is my absolute favourite. He is so freaking adorable!



  8. this is the most interesting comparison I've ever heard! your bit on the tad bit frightening Vietnamese ladies made me laugh! I too am a wall flower in some social situations. your sweater vest is the best (rhyme unintended)

  14. Raj is so cute - and so are you ;) Great idea for a post, wow!

    Just btw. - I found your blog via ifb - and love it! :)

  15. Haha, very cute! You're long lost kindred spirits! ;)

  16. The KOR blog is not related to fashion or IFB. Kyoto Maiko is my style blog. Just FYI, but I appreciate the comment just the same...

    You might say KOR is an animated sitcom, although I prefer to consider it a drama, as it gets extremely serious at the end, the finale isn't remotely funny. Very bittersweet, somewhat depressing.

  17. big bang theory is the best show!! one of my favs to watch on thursday nights :)

  18. you are hilarious! i love this post...perhaps you will meet some day!

I do my best to respond to all comments, but I'm pretty scatterbrained. So if I skip over you, it's most surely unintentional.
Thank you for your sweet words!
