25 things about me!

IHM tagged me to talk some more about myself! so, here goes...

As all tags go, here are the rules -

Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.

  1. I cook very well for someone who has been cooking for exactly 3 yrs. most of my cooking will be non-spicy, but very tasty! :P

  2. My favorite animal has always been the tiger first and then the elephant. I remember not talking to my parents for a couple of days because they said I couldn't have a tiger as a pet! :P

  3. I can eat curd rice and pickle at any time. I used to eat it in the morning at 7 before going off to lab in college.

  4. I hate creating politics in office and I don't suck up to my seniors/managers, which is why even though I have the intelligence and the knowledge, I still haven't climbed up the corporate ladder as quickly as some of my classmates/friends.

  5. I love my work... I really can't sit at home for a very long time and the longest break I took which I enjoyed was the 2.5 months from Sept till Nov.

  6. I am a compulsive shopper... My family feels that it's one the main reasons why I should never quit my job!!!

  7. Till I joined my post grad course, I actually thought I was not pretty or good looking... (I still think that sometimes...)

  8. I still have more guy friends than girls and my best friend till date is my friend V (other than the husband)

  9. I hated my middle school days and high school was decent enough because P was my best friend.

  10. I hated college with all my heart because I went to an ultra-conservative, all-girls college.

  11. I can never remember the lyrics of a song... the tune will stick but most of the time I make up my own lyrics which irritates my husband to no end!

  12. I have watched FRIENDS so many times that I have lost count!

  13. I am scared of the dark.

  14. I believe Ghosts exist.

  15. I also believe that GOD exists and all my conversations with HIM/HER have been in English.

  16. Discrimination of any sort will piss me off... and most times exercising restraint is very difficult.

  17. I believe a marriage is for keeps and nothing justifies cheating on your spouse...

  18. I love blogging and my friends from the blog world are so much more real and true than some of the actual so-called friends that I have.

  19. I love dancing and am pretty good at it too!

  20. I feel absolutely no guilt when my husband takes care of me - cooking, cleaning or any other domestic task done by him when I'm relaxing will not put me in a guilt-frenzy mode.

  21. I am a control freak in so many ways... but, not always.

  22. I am still not confident about the way I wear the saree... so, I have never worn it to work because I am not sure if I can manage it the entire day.

  23. I love doing these tags which lets me talk about myself all the time! :P

  24. I am a very truthful person and only the most extreme cases would make me tell a lie... I approach all my relationships - be it with friends, husband, family, work with honesty.

  25. I always rehearse before bringing up any topic of issue with my managers... all my emails before being sent will be read thru exactly 3 times!
There! Done :)

But, of course I enjoyed myself... :)
I would love to tag everyone who reads my space!


I have one more song tag to take up from Nimi, which I will do soon :)

2. but they were ok with an elephant for a pet??!! awesome parents, must say. :P

rayshma said...

my parents refused to get me a tiger, a horse and an alligator. they tried to make up for it with 2 dogs and 3 cats. :D
i didn't think i looked "okay" till after my post grad! :D

i think belief in gods AND demons in inter-linked. u cannot believe in one without believing the other.

loved to read more abt u pix! and yeah... some blog-pals are indeed as real (and maybe more) than the brick & mortar world ones! :D
