Tags This August.

What do you do when you are bored, have nothing to write about and is facing a writer’s block? Thats when Tags comes to your rescue. Use them, feel the difference.

(Proposed advertisment for Tags, which will hit the media soon)


Okay so I got tagged.

Here is the first one from Vishesh.

6 quirks are about me :-

1) When I get nervous, I just eat eat and eat!

2) I have the FRIENDS DVD and have watched it like the umpteenth time.

3) I love going out for looong drives even if it’s just going in circles.

4) I can’t survive without at least one movie a week.

5) If I like a song, I listen to it again and again. When I drive, cook, work….. almost all the time. And I never get bored until of course when I another song hit me. It need not be a new one; it can be an old classic. Err, I think everyone does that. So this is everyone’s quirk !

6) I am a cleanliness freak. I can spend all day cleaning the house. I don’t like the feel of dust on my bare foot.


Manoj tagged me with some questions.


1. What have you realized recently?

That I work for peanuts.

2. Have you given your first kiss away?


3. If you were to be stranded on a deserted island, who are the 11 blog buddies you would take?

Only if I have internet connection and a port to connect my laptop at the island I would be happy all alone.

8. If you win $1 million, what would you do?

Refer answer 5.

9. If you meet someone that you love, would you confess to him/her?

I am living with her now. Nothing to confess so far!!

10. List out 3 good points of the person who tagged you.

Manoj always appreciate me for my writing. He always like my posts. So he should be a good guy. 😀

 11. What are the requirements that you wish from your other half?

Too late !

12. Which type of person do you hate the most?
Ahh ! The “autowalla type”. If you don’t know what that means, read this.

13. What is the one thing you cannot live without?

19. What’s the last shocking thing you’ve seen or heard?

20. Would you rather have love but no money or money but no love?

I think money can’t buy love, but love can’t buy money either, nor can you order money or love separately.

ha !

Just love, but enough money to survive ( survive = Buy a BMW, own a house at Beverly Hills, own a fleet of Hummers, Go for a world trip, win question 8, start Hotel Business, a beach house at Hawai and Goa. etc etc.)


I was tagged by Nita.

What are the 7 favourite things you enjoyed doing as a child? I wonder if many bloggers will find out many similarities? Is a childhood everywhere the same, or is it much coloured by the cultural/social background?

  1. Climbing guava trees and eating guava right on the tree. We had like 6 trees around our house. I would sometimes spend my evening climbing it and eating all of the ripe ones right on the tree. Talking of tree climbing, I loved climbing coconut trees too, but my parents were far too afraid to let me climb them as the news always said about some who died from falling off a coconut tree. I don’t think now I have the ability to walk to a coconut tree ! L


  1. Swimming: I loved swimming. We had a river near by where the water would rise during monsoons and will have strong currents. We would jump into the river to be swept away and then finally manage to climb back shore half a km downstream. It was cool. Although we will always be left with some bruises and scrapes.


  1. Time Bombs. Come Christmas season and my dad would bring all the crackers. I set time bombs on it using agarbatti strapped to it and leave it at strategic place to scare people. One would be at the servant quarters, the other near the place people come to pluck grass. And run for my life when they come chasing me.


  1. Stories: I used to write strange stories like ‘The magic carpet and Ramu’ which of course was borrowed (inspired from <like apna Bollywood>) many existing fairy tales.


  1. Dancing : I am real ‘good’ at it, my brother and myself would wear some funky clothes, switch off the light, play music and use a torch to give disco effects and dance!. I think it was Michael Jackson inspiration.


  1. Cycling : I was always inspired by the off road cycling and used to ride my cycle everywhere except the road. Do stunts like riding down steep stairs, zip zag through dangerously close rubber trees etc.


  1. Read comics. When we were in Chennai, we had a library nearby. We used to take 10-20 comics including Phantom, Mandrake, Archie, Tintin, Asterix( I still read this many times over), Chacha Choudary etc and just spend the whole day reading them.


I am not tagging anyone. But I would love to hear the last tag from each and everyone of you who is reading this. Consider yourself ‘tagged’. If you don’t have time to do the second tag, atleast answer question 10 and 17, make my day, say some good things about me.


  1. oh…am I first…

  2. Even I am very good at dancing, when I dance….people leave the dance floor…. coz. they can’t match my dancing skills…. + they have save their life too…. :mrgreen:

    “I am a cleanliness freak. I can spend all day cleaning the house. I don’t like the feel of dust on my bare foot.”

    This is the best line of this post 😛 i’m a cleanliness freak and i was totally distracted reading this line ! lol

    /“Are you a shopaholic or not?”/

    No, but I swipe my credit card mostly for my wife. Uh oh, she is ! but I love shopping for jeans.

    😀 clever !

  12. Daisy Blue,
    Yeah once I wrote it, I was like hey everyone does that ! 😀

    Yeah seems like guava is a favorite among many.
    Yeah I loved the lastone. There was so much to write about. But I wrote the best 7.

    haha, you could write about what you did when you were in the 5th grade.

    haha clever ppl you guys are are. But egg stain is difficult to clean. Also I wanted to make the post funny. (atleast try to make it funny).
    haha, dancing was cool. 🙂

    Thanks. good one. 😀

    and loved reading the last par of ur tag. .

  14. //” When I get nervous, I just eat eat and eat!”//
    that reminds me of my sis who becomes violent when she dont get anything to eat :mrgreen:

    //4) I can’t survive without at least one movie a week.// 😐

  15. why do my comment always get into moderation queue ,this isnt fair 😥

  16. I differ from you completely in first point. When I am nervous, I get in frenzy of activities and make foolish mistakes. I don’t remember food at all.

    And I agree, no blogging on vacation. You can blog about it later. 🙂

    In childhood, I too did two things: write meaningless stories and read comics. What I would not do to lay my hands on comics. I knew instantly who in class had which comics. I read borrowed books only, without knowledge of my parents, as they would not let me. 😦

  17. arvind,
    cool we could meet and party ! I hope you will write something good about me.
    😀 I do go violent.
    I dont know, may be wordpress doesnt like your comments.
    What? they wouldn’t let your read books? My dad had no problems in getting me books, comics… but for everything else he would start his old story of ‘How difficult its to make money’ 😀

  18. @Rekha U use this // to quote thats why ur comment gets held up for moderation. I used to use it too until Nikhil told me the problem. Now I use “”

  19. So true.

    Don’t go giving the software companies any ideas though!
