Thank you oh holy ONE- Gils!! yes, i am GREAT, i not only have 4 blogs, but am trying my best to keep em all alive and kicking.. huff puff[ok, i know my 30secs is over...] adios..
I have been awarded the....
[looks around for some gifts... books maybe.. or perhap a new phone or camera... nope, nothing.... hmfph!..so much for that!! ]
ok, now onto the next category of the tag-- Share 7 Random facts About me.. i would like to think of these are 7 Unique facts about me, that make me :-) .. Here goes,
I read like crazy, i can forget the rest of the world when am lost in the pages of a gripping novel, or an inspiring tale, or just something interesting on a topic related to work.. I am currently reading 4 books - Nine Lives by Dalrymple, Last train to Alcatrez by The Autobiography of Leon (Whitey) Thompson, Games Indians play by V Raghunathan and Just started Chanakya's Chant by Ashwin Sanghi[i won via a contest on Twitter].
2) Treasure Chest
Like a treasure chest of information, i love collecting information, little trivia, developing my vocabulary and gathering whatever little i can to add some spark into my life.. If i read about something, i immediately look it up to see what it means, if i see a prog on a place on Tv, i look fwd to reading about it. Also, i collect information from friends and others, and share them whenever someone is in need, or asks for assistance. I might not go out of my way, but i will help if i can... :)
3) Gadgets & Gizmo
I can spend hours talking about these, and infact am happiest when surrounded by people who share interest in the same. I lose interest when in a gathering where all are talking about politics, jewellery, shopping or just plain gossip... Even my online friends, most of them share this interest with me... Computers, laptops, phones,gaming devices, cameras[learning about these], other accessories, etc etc... LOVE.... Infact, for most people around me i am the Tech consultant!!
4) Tried and Tested
I believe in Try before deciding. this applies to anything- food, clothes, drinks, phones, places, etc etc... The list is endless.. I dont go by others' opinions, unless it is from someone close to me who i know cares enough to share their thoughts.. If there is one thing i am dead against and will never ever try, it is Smoking!!
5) Fire away:
I ask questions by the dozen.. Sometimes people get tired and give up, and other times they simply throw some random answer hoping i will shut up. I need logic, no matter what i am doing, i need to know a reason for doing it. And this is where most times i end up having squabbles with people[esp family]
6) Yakkity yak
When i am afraid, or anxious, i tend to talk a lot.. When travelling, if there is an activity i have not done before, and am apprehensive about, i go yakkity yak, but then once i am comfortable i am cool and happily chatting away.. Luckily, this is only for the 1st attempt :)
Can i paint? Are you kidding me.. Unless it is MS paint, i am screwed
Can i draw? ya right, mock me some more wont u... gah...
Can i make something out of paper? yes yes.. yipee.. Thanks to a friend, discovered i was not all artistically challenged or whatever you call them, and that i am good with paper and designs, as long as there is instructions... :-))
Wow, am already done is it? Nice..
Well, am not gonna tag anyone specific.. if any of you feel like doing it, go for it.. Every single person on my Reader deserves this award.... :-))
Have a lovely day ahead!!
