Being Tagged

My impressions on Tagging:

1. Wow!that will be a ready-made topic to blabber about. The job’s half done!!

2. Its a good idea. But who on earth would really want to know all that?

3. Isn't this thing getting repetitive..

4. Whoa .Why doesn’t anybody tag me.??

So here I am !Tagged by my good friend Krish. or do you want me to call you Aparna..

  1. Pick out a scar you have, and explain how you got it.

I will tell the story of the latest one.Not a scar exactly,it’s a bite-wound on my ankle,resembling the one that Dracula leaves behind on his victims..wanna guess??,not a snake!!Don't give me the creeps just cos I said ‘guess’..but it was Dracula’s blood-sucking cousin and hopefully the last of that species left on earth-leech!(Location:Edakkal in Wayanad ,during the college trip last year).One tiny insect(!),the sight of which stuck to your skin can give you a cardiac arrest out of the shock.Well, it did to me..but I have already thought of a useful use for it!When my children misbehave(that is once I have children..),I will just show them the bite-wound and tell them I got it from Dracula when I was a child myself and had misbehaved!!haha..i am ingenious..

2. What does your phone look like?

Boohoo..there goes my whatchyacallit—‘I am Alexander graham bell’s grand-daughter ‘ phone was the first of the polyphonic colour phone genre from Nokia..don't ask the people at Nokia , they will simply disown me..*sob,sob* it’s a Nokia-3100 .

  1. What is on the walls of your bedroom?

Lots and lots of pictures of Lord Ganesha…I am a firm devotee and a bigger fan. Over the years ,we have worked out a fluid and working agreement (‘terms of service’—I behave myself and I get stuff in return)between us…so things are just rocking between the two of us..

  1. What is your current desktop picture?

It’s a picture of the frontal elevation of my own recently done-up home taken from my cousin’s new Nokia n73 music edition mobile phone….see..he is the real grand son of graham bell..*sob.sob* (disclaimer:this is no ad for Nokia)

  1. Do you believe in gay marriage?

Yes!Hell is for everyone!How can you rebuke their claim?…and then,why play the painful spoil-sport??(I meant the hell only..wipe off that devilish grin..)

  1. What do you want more than anything right now?

Tough one

Objectively-my evening’s cup of tea

Philosophically-I want to be able to tell the answer to that question.

Truthfully speaking my mind-I want to be called up by my employer and be up and running, getting my hands dirty on all things IT! These days I feel a film of rust settling on my brains and limbs due to sheer inactivity..sigh

7 . What time were you born?

I have no idea. I didn’t have my watch with me then..sorry!

8. Are your parents still together?

They are !!and I think they merit Param Veer Chakra awards for that feat!!

9. Last person who made you cry?

Can I pass this one?? I just can’t must have been while watching some movie..

10. What is your favourite perfume / cologne? soo hot!!

11. What kind of hair/eye color do you like in the opposite sex?

Hair-straight, slightly wavy, cropped short, black hair. Neatly combed.

Eye- jet black.

12. What are you listening to?

Ahista.. Ahista.. from the movie of the same name..

Soulful music and soulful rendering !!and a beautiful story to go with it..

‘teri batein ..teri yaadein…kar gayi woh asar

har jaguh bas tu hi tu hai,..dekhoon mein jidhar..’

13. Do you get scared of the dark?

Not if I am inside my home .or with my folks.But out in the dark,on my own,I get a creepy some one is watching me from behind..

14. Do you like painkillers?

Only if they are in the form of jokes..

15. Are you too shy to ask someone out?

No never!I keep asking my younger brother out and he keeps turning me down..

Otherwise ,I have never had to.

16. If you could eat anything right now, what would it be?

Hot n spicy chilly chicken from ‘Open House’.If you ever lived in tvm,you will know..if you haven’t ,it’s a real pity..

17. Who was the last person who made you mad?

My main-project team member!! She thought she could dump her share of work on me just because I worked like a dog on the project..!On the day of the final presentation ,I simply blew my fuse.!(well,if any software engg is reading this,is their a way to deal with people like that..i mean other than blowing one’s fuses??)

18. Who was the last person who made you smile?

1.My buddy from college in Mumbai ,Viji,who’s been there only weeks and is already sick missing home and friends here.Yesterday night ,when I checked my mobile just after a half hour break,there were 15 smses from her(@1 in the night)..surprised,and a bit worried for her ,I replied ..and then we chatted (d sms way..)till I dropped asleep…my friend, who never stayed awake beyond 9,stayed up till 2, sms-ing..paavam..(poor thing) !

2.My best friend,due to the long mails..

I don’t know if anybody’s even gonna bother with reading this.But it’s the first time in my life that I am being tagged,and thanks for that!This will go into my personal list of first-times..

I am passing the baton to aishu,mukesh,ankit and nocturnal poiesis.Enjoy guys!!

Manoranjini...thank you for this. But please, for all the good things still left on earth, do not misspell the name of my blog like that.

Use my nick - the lost_poet, use the shortened form of my blog's name - N|P....plz! :exasperated look:

and don't worry
m gettin' to it right now! :)

Sukhaloka said...

Hey, this is the lost_poet's friend. Nice tag you got there, I'm thinking of picking it up!

But.. erm.. there's HUGE difference between Poiesis(i.e. "creation" or "making") and Posies!!!

Musku said...

Referring to 17th question -
17. Who was the last person who made you mad?

In software such things happen a lot. But always keep a checkpoint and be clear about your responsibilities. If you work more let all your superiors know about that...its surely going to help you in the appraisal. But the downside is too much of effort can affect ones health. So its your call when to say good bye to your computer!
Ideally, the company expects a person to work from morning 9 to evening 6pm (8 hrs one should work.60 mins for lunch and tea break).

@suki,and (ehem)Poiesis:the misspell was not just slipped..and i am ready to go the gallows for the total misundestanding..pls forgive me..
@musku:thank you for the information..i hope u will take up the tag soon..:)

lost_poet said...

Ah well. Thank you Manoranjini. Anyways, since the correction has been made (hasn't it?). Tis all alright. I am bit sensitive about a few things about my blog, this was one of them. Sorry if I came down too hard.

Thank you for tagging me. it has been linked back to you (Suki pointed out last night that I had forgotten).
