Tagged

I was tagged by Amit to write 8 facts about myself…
Thank you Amit , for tagging me..it really made me think :)

I also thank whoever started this for one thing…..one writes about oneself…if its like ‘get a few to tell u a few facts about u….I’d be torn between telling the truth or saving my face’ :)

These are the rules

1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.

2. People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.

3. At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

4. If you fail to do this within eight hours, you will not reach Third Series or attain your most precious goals for at least two more lifetimes.

I will follow the first three..the last one I cld’nt follow bcos truly I had a hard time coming up with 8 facts about myself ( I was apprehensive if my readers wld think I am pompous , whenever I came up with a fact ;-) )

so guys I have mellowed things a bit

As for my precious goals…I guess I have to come to terms with being single for another 2 lifetimes =)) ( yeah yeah…I am able to hear all u ladies shout ‘it’s a boon !!! ’ :)) got it !! )

So ladies and gentleman…u can unfasten ur seat belts now and recline ur seats and relax ! the flight is going to be a smooth one

1. I like to call myself a simple person with a down to earth attitude. I enjoy a lot of activities and it does’nt matter if its an expensive hobby or just a hay ride in a farm..I am equally happy doing both.

2. I love reading and have a good collection of books. I even collect books which I feel may interest me at a later date.

3. I love discussions and arguments. Even if I don’t know the subject I stay there and make it a point to understand it.

4. If there is one thing I cant stand , its mediocre movies . I cant stand bad movies. I don’t mean I am a Maniratnam fan or am an intellectual , but movies like ‘Veerasamy ‘ and ‘Kabhi alvida na kehna ‘ …pleaseee , torture. But there are some movies like ‘beautiful mind’ and ‘pretty woman’ that I can watch over and over again.

5.Travelling interests me a lot, but I do not like those guided or pre arranged tours by the tour companies. I like to go to a place where I have a local friend and with the help of him/her decide my own places of interest.

6. My weakness is the elderly. I especially love the 70+ and go out of my way to converse with them . I have a liking for all their ‘in those days….” stories .

7. If there is something that makes me nervous , its ‘cooking’ . I get so scared and nervous that it wont turn out well ( and most of the time, it does'nt , atleast that’s how they seem to me :P) .

8. My days are filled with humor , I like to see the lighter side of things and make humor out of even the most mundane of things. I thank my grandfather for this :)

Hey , we have landed safely and I hope it was a smooth flight ! You all get unlimited access to the comment section free , as a bonus for flying with me ;)

Ensooiiiiii , pals :)

I am tagging Ankur , Sowmya , Ravi , Thiru , Sahasra , Jeevan , Adiya and Kamal !

I am warning u guys ! Beware of the fourth rule !!

Hi Partner,

I am fine. Presume the same with you.

Promised one: :( Hope I can make it true soon.

I like what you have said about yourself => Down to earth person.

Cooking is a natural talent that every woman can boast off. So, don't worry. You too will learn the nuances soon.

Hi ba,

Naan sowkyam.

Thanks for the adirasam. It tasted good. See, you are already a great cook in the making.

Don't be afraid that the dish won't turn out well. Just cook with all your heart. An other thing that makes a Woman's cooking delicious is the fact that Women also add a secret ingridient called Love and Affection.

You got it right sree. Timely decision. Once married, it is irreversible.

hey ladies .. if all of you decided to be single then what would happen to this world? what abt existence of human race??

Sree's Views said...

Amit...
Jokes apart..looking at the number of cases and problems arising out of matrimony...it def looks a scary place to be.
I am presently doing some paper work for a cpl , where the term to use would be 'downright unfair'.
I am not saying its only the women who are the victims , we see men's life getting messed too.

amitscorpio said...

talking of numbers ... the ratio won't be that bad ... my view to marriage is two people leave some things and adopt some new ones and live together with help of each other!! success of it depends on both!!

Amit..Let me assure u , not all think like u.
Def success of a marriage depends on both. But there are some basic rules to be followed for a good relationship. The main thing is to build trust.
Amit..I am not sure how many cpls u have observed at close quarters..but in my line of work we come across various kinds of probs that arise bet. spouses.
The main prob that I noticed is lack of trust and understanding.
As far as I have seen , partners who have an open mind and who are adaptable and a forgiving in nature are the ones who can lead a successful married life .
I am sure there are umpteen men like u who just want an understanding girl...but not all are blessed with such girls.
I would list temper , violence , alchoholism , in-laws , contact with exs , disparity in financial background , plain incompatibility as major reasons for friction between spouses.
And the sheer number of these cases , is enough to put one off marriage.

its all there ... but basically you n me are having a difference of view ... you think the glass is half empty and i think there still is half glass of water!!!

Sree's Views said...

... you think the glass is half empty and i think there still is half glass of water!!! //
hmmm..yes..if u want to put it that way..I think I agree .
When u see the same problems being narrated everyday by a new cpl, u kind of get disturbed by it.
But let me not disillusion u..I am sure there are many good fishes in the pond :)

Jeevan said...

Great facts! I am also a person who likes to have long travelling on my wish, not with the condition of guides or the driver who take me.
Hi simple person. what a consensus here... I like to find the enthusiasm where ever I was.
I will try my hand in this tag:)
