I have been tagged by Rads.The rules of the tag are:

1. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.
2. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.
3. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them they have been tagged.

Here is my list.

1. I exhibit narcissistic tendencies. I love to see myself on the mirror every now and then and should say it has almost become an OCD now.

2. I am a sucker for Tea. A steaming hot cup of masala chai is all it takes to make my day. By the way, I detest coffee. Truly, madly, deeply !

3. I am a can-read-any-trash and can-watch-any-crap kind. Mind you, I can do that over and over again. Some of my friends have often wondered if I ever had that thing called 'taste' when it comes to books and movies! Sadly naah!

4. My earliest ambition in life was to become a cartoonist. I have always found them so cool. But for the life of me, I cannot draw/sketch/paint or do anything even remotely to do with the art stuff. So had to settle being an engineer.

5. I always start reading a magazine from the last page.

6. I suffer from PDC syndrome. Pathetically directionally challenged. Spin me around and I am lost !

7. When I was younger, I had always wished I turn eighteen soon. It felt so cool then. But now, I really wish I stop growing old. The only consolation inspite of growing old probably is that I don't look my age. A lot of people still ask me if I am fresh out of high school :-)

8. I am passionate about sleeping and I can sleep at the drop of a hat.

PS: Being the first tag, I guess I can do some breaking the rules and I skip the tagging other people part of the tag.

PPS: This is the longest post I have written so far ! Btw, another random fact about me, I always like to keep it short. Small is afterall beautiful :-)

But I tell ya

In your pursuit
I have lost
many a thing

First impression is nt always the best impression.

Sometimes it's okay to laugh at ourselves . Only sometimes.

You just cannot get some people out of your mind, however harder you try.

It's okay to like some people for no rhyme or reason.

Once bitten is twice shy.

It's perfectly alright to hate some people.

We cannot please everyone all the time.

At the coffee shop

Overheard conversations
brewed more interest
than the coffee.

Some memories
like old passwords
are best forgotten.

The unpublished

Dear Dushti,

Since the last week of may, you would have created a dozen of us. Create, edit, redraft, and that is all you have been doing to us. Are we just destined to adorn your notepad ? Don't you think we deserve to see ourselves in the blog world and get some comments too. Please do not keep us waiting in the notepad for long.

Hoping to get published soon.

Sincerely yours,
The unpublished.
