Tag 20

Modesty has never been my strength you see. *winks* And when Jax tagged Lady K, I was not sure who he was referring to. But then I’m Lady K too! Thanks kaNo!

Here are 20 random facts about me.

-I love hot chocolate.

-I'm a self confessed hypochondriac. So, when I want to get wet in the rains which I would love to, I think about catching cold and falling sick. You know what I mean... and this is just an example. I don’t limit these theories to myself and so most of the time end up being a spoilsport.

-Lazing around, doing nothing, just relaxing is my idea of time well spent. This hardly happens because there are millions of to-do things spinning in my head all the time.

-I'm so much like the clingy crab which holds onto everything. I grow super protective of people I love and take it on myself to solve their problems. This is another reason why I can’t just relax. But I'll try pranayam for this.

-I remember almost everything. And I remember everything in minute detail. Dates, people, names, places, films, songs, books, long lost acquaintances, distant friends' parents' names, and everything else that I don’t want to remember. Sometimes I surprise myself with the amount of trash that I'm carrying in my head.

-I think I've grown patient with age, and my temper has mellowed a bit. Just a bit though.

-Sometimes when I look at the mirror, I don’t recognize the other me. Thankfully this happens mostly after I get a new hair cut.

-I like to talk to people and I make friends very easily. But I also enjoy solitude. I need some time for myself, to think, to destress.

-I dread losing my loved ones.

-A is the best thing happened to me so far.

-I'm a mama's girl and daddy's girl too!

-I'll always remain a mother hen to K2 and K3.

-I can’t express gratitude without tears in my eyes. So I generally write “thank you” notes or emails to people.

-I've wept like a fool while watching most of the movies till date. Be it Troy or the Rajesh Khanna starrer comedy "Bawarchi". I try to hide my tears in such situations to save embarrassment, but my stupid nose which turns deep red whenever my eyes leak catches everyone’s attention.

-I love public speaking and have no stage fright.

-My mom used to call me Gajanayani (the elephant eyed) for the narrow slits I have for eyes. And let me tell you it’s not flattering at all.

-Most of the people who have known me for years are pleasantly surprised to see that I can cook.

-I've a starting problem. When I’m about to do something new, exciting, challenging I'm unsure of myself. It's like I always need someone to push me into the deep waters. From there I pick up myself and start enjoying the challenge.

-Many people who didn’t leave favorable first impressions have later become my very good friends.

-I like to read about exotic foods, elaborate recipes, etc but enjoy simple home made food any day.

Phew! Now this was a tough task with rounds of filtering and re-filtering some facts and making them look as normal as possible.

Anyone who wants to have some fun, you are tagged!

Hehe..good that you did the tag!:) Lady K is another one friend of mine.To avoid confusion, I'll call you Madame K!

Nice list! I especially concur with "Many people who didn’t leave favorable first impressions have later become my very good friends." That includes "A" :)

kavs said...

hehehe! Does A know that?
And Madame K sounds wow!

jax said...

I don't know if he does! We were classmates in 11th and 12th in which period we hardly ever spoke to each other. But you know, how you can build up an impression about someone even without knowing one bit about them? So when he joined my engineering college, I was like "Oh No!!!"

But the four years of engineering changed it all! And now, everytime I talk to him, I keep asking him to return to Bangalore!

kavs said...

I can imagine that. I'm so good at making as well as building all the wrong impressions!
You know how passionate A is about B'lore! Hey, why dont you make a trip to Hyd? You can see for yourself how marriage is treating your friend.

"A" definitely BELONGS in bangalore.
On the first day of college, 'A' was in front of me, and I thought he was the only normal guy on that bench.
(btw Jax was on that bench too :-))

jax said...

I want to meet both of you. It will be fun!:) I am just a little lazy to plan trips though.

And guess what? I hated Deppe too the first time I met him.

And guess what? I still do. Hehe

kavs said...

Jax rebounds!
I want to meet you guys! I met Deppe,Pachi and others, but that hardly counts.
I had met Ravi in Hyd couple of weeks before my wedding. Well, he did all the talking and I all the laughing!
