With so much going on in life these days, I find it hard to cope up with all that I have myself trapped in. & so, blogging is that one thing I will never neglect or choose to let it fade. Recently, I got tagged by Alastair and this is his post which I had a great time reading and getting to know him even more : http://kattermonran.com/2012/10/06/tagged-youre-it/. I took some time to finally get onto it (God bless the weekend) and here it is! I present to you *drumroll please* The Tagging Game!
Here are some of the rules you need to apply :
- Each person must post 11 things about themselves
- They must answer the questions the tagger has set for them
- They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
- They must then choose 11 bloggers and tag them in their post.
- These lucky bloggers must then be told.
- There are no tag backs
- You are under no obligation to play along, but it is something your fellow bloggers would enjoy and you would too. (play it. I force you to play).
Questions I was asked by Alastair :
Q1) What is your favourite food?
Chinese. I love chinese. Also, some of the desi, local food my mom is an expert in. Mom’s for the win.
Q2) What’s the most obscure country you’ve visited?
Uzkebistan, former part of Russia but now seperated. I went there without my family, with my mom’s brother and his family.
Q3) What film could you watch again and again?
Ah, this is a tough one. There are numerous movies that I can watch over and over again! To name a few : My sister’s keeper. The social network. The Shawshank Redemption. The Batman trilogy. Indian movies would be : Kabhie khushi Kabhie Gum. Rung de basanti. Kal ho na ho. Barfi. Saathiya.
Q4) Do you have an item that you collect? What is it?
As for now, there isn’t. But I used to. I used to have a HUGE collection of stickers. I was obsessed with them. & fortunately, I still have them with me and my younger sister always casts them an evil eye. They’re still okay.
Q5) Do you have a song that associates with your life?
Not really, but I can somewhat relate to many. Some songs by the band Coldplay seems as if they were sung for me.
Q6) What do you prefer, Planes, trains, boats, bikes or cars?
Q7) Where do you do your blogging?
I realized that I found it hard to type/blog from the PC or the laptop. So all the blogs that I’ve uploaded so far have been written on the Notes application on my mom’s iPhone. That’s where I do it. Though this one would be the first being uploaded from the laptop. It feels weird. & time consuming!
Q8) Do you have children? If not, do you plan to?
No. I still have a lot to think and worry about in my life than planning on having kids right now =p (although I think I’ll have three kids)
Q9) What is your favourite non alcoholic drink?
Coke, Fanta and cold coffee.
Q10) What’s the best job you’ve ever had?
Volunteering in an orphanage, to teach the kids there. It was an experience one can never forget. Did it last year and this summer as well 🙂
11 things about Me :
1- I love talking more than writing.
2- We once had two pet parrots named ‘Stupid’ and ‘Idiot’. One of them is buried outside a 5 star hotel in a city one and a half hour drive away from my city.
3- ‘For you a thousand times over’ is my favorite line from a book ‘The Kite Runner’ by Khaled Hosseini. That is the only book I’ve ever cried on and also, this is the line I would use for my friends and family – always.
4- I got sixteen gifts on my sixteenth birthday. By my family and best friends, both. That is another thing that my family got me 8 bangles, meaning each bangle counts as a gift. So that makes 8 gifts right here -.-
5- I’m a right handed person but while playing cricket, I magically transform into a left handed batsman 😀 God knows why! It’s cool.
6- I don’t like stuff toys.
7- Most of the blogs that I’ve written so far were originally written a month or two ago.
8- Get me ice-cream everyday and I will marry you. Almost.
9- I was obsessed with heels at the age of 7-9. My dad used to bring me one every week and my mom always threw them away after some while because of the constant annoying noise it made. Hey, it was fun wearing them, okay? And also the part where I would go up and down and up and down and up and down the stairs all day long enjoying the sound which came out of my walk. Funny how I usually wear more of those flat shoes now.
10- I’ve only had 2 sleepovers with my friends till now.
11- I love nature. I love it.
Eleven people that I choose :
1) A dog with fleas
2) Rahul’s blog
4) My Wiz Mind’s Wit
5) Le Medusa
6) Adventures of Andrea
7) Mangos in Manhattan
8) Me and my weird thoughts
9) The why about this
10) The aimless wanderings
11) Ralph’s blog (since you don’t accept awards, here’s a game for you =p)
