A tag in time saves NINE ;-)


Warning:

The following post contains 9 facts about me, one of which is a bland lie. I know , I know I have written so many facts about myself in so many tags that even you must be tired :-p. But well, since you are coming back and reading this, its basically your problem :-p.

Accidental Diva tagged me. So lets start off without much ado :).

  • I have bitten my nails for more than 16 years. I stopped when I got my first job in campus, but resumed after getting married (one of the excuses I get to tease Sri , saying "Its all because of you" ;-) :-D). Right now, I am proud to say I've stopped this dreadful habit (for more than an year now). But looks like it can return anytime after all :-p.


  • I can yap, yap and yap. I'm so talkative that I talked to a person who was practically a stranger (she was my dad's student, but I didn't know her) for about 2 hours over the phone (and this was the first time I ever spoke to her!!) :-D.


  • I've said it a couple of times and I'll say it again. I love adventuring. I have done bungee jumping, white water rafting, ski-ing, rappeling, river-crossing, jet boat rides and para-sailing. Trekking and hiking are what I consider "normal" :-D. I have been wanting to sky-dive for quite a while, but Sri absolutely refused to go and then refused to let me go alone (Awww!! Cho Chweet!). Still there is jet-skiing (or wave-runners as they are called here), scuba-diving and mountain climbing to do ;-).


  • I love travelling. Travel and adventures go hand-in-hand for me. I hope that I get to see the seven wonders (the old ones) atleast once in my life. Additionally, I have aspirations of scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef, travel across Sahara desert on a hot air balloon and go on an african safari! I wish I could have unlimited money just so that I can see everything there is to see ;-).


  • I am a cleanliess freak!! I can't handle even a speck of dust anywhere. My kitchen has to be spotless, my bed has to be made and there should be nothing scattered anywhere on the floor. I don't accept anything thats not upto "my" standards!!


  • I have a habit of becoming totally silent whenever I am upset over anything. It is a sure-fire way for Sri to know (now he recognizes the signs ;-) :-D) that he has done something wrong :-D. After all I am talkative otherwise ;-).


  • I am online the whole day on yahoo messenger. As soon as I get a mail, I "have to" open the mail and see it. There's no "it can wait" or "later". Its literally "now". Even when I was working, it was the same case, but then I had my work mail in addition ;-).


  • I admire every single thing in nature. I am fascinated by waterfalls, sunsets, night skies, literally anything in nature and I consider these as "live" paintings by God :). If you go on treks with me, I can guarantee you that you'll spend half the time watching me examine/admire every flower/mushroom/fruit intently and the other half watching me click pictures of anything and everything I see :-D.


  • I am not one of these continuous shoppers. Whenever I go shopping (or even window-shopping for that matter), I can concentrate/show any interest only for about 1-2 hours. Afterwards, I kind of feel dazed, start getting a head-ache and can't wait to go home. It maybe due to the hugggggggggge shopping malls here in US and all that different kinds of lighting inside :-O!

Tell me which one's a lie?
Where, how and why?


Good luck! Well, most people have already done this tag, but if you want to take it up, hey, I'm not gonna stop you ;-) :)).

We are off to Miami tomorrow for the long weekend. So I'll be updating about which is the lie only after coming back (most probably Wednesday :-D). So long!

Update on Sept 6th 2007: I am completely opposite to a cleanliness freak :-D (the 5th point is the lie). Doesn't really mean I allow dirt to be gathered around, but am a bit messy ;-). Maybe due to my inherent laziness. Obviously my parents and Sri knew this (Sri, after seeing the messy bedroom, commented "Wow, this is spotless!" :-D).

Those who got it right, are allowed the privilege of helping me clean the house :)).

Hm, Hello :)

I would pick either 5(cleanliness freak) or 9(continuous shopper syndrome ;). More likely 9.

*keeping fingers crossed(hope there is a decent prize for this effort :D)*

Have a great weekend

Still, after all, http://startso11.info/grasz+czy+nie+grasz.html he, Stuhk, was the discoverer, the theatrical Columbus who had had the courage and the vision.. If I lived near a canal http://startso11.info/www.annamuchnago.pl.html I believe I would buy a boat and train my horse to tow.. The absence of http://startso11.info/kabina+prysznicowa.html any mirth-provoking correspondence, and the appeal solely to his own powers of persuasion, actually struck his fancy.. One solitary candle had http://startso11.info/opdatkowanie+exportu.html been left upon the mantel shelf.. I want you to turn those people out of that suite before night! Very well, he replied with a sigh, and got http://startso11.info/wirszy%C5%82%C5%82o.html up to do it.. Nor was this admirable deportment confined to the county in which he held http://storyah44.info/realize.html so high official position.. My wife looked at me with a serious http://startso11.info/Promy+z+Gda%C5%84ska.html expression.. And so the feller took the box, and put up his forty dollars along with Smiley's, and set down to wait. http://startso11.info/praca+w+warszawie.html. Kingsbury's before breakfast. http://startso11.info/styl+biblijny.html. No one could have detected his http://startso11.info/dzieje+ziemi.html disappointment in his manner, albeit his sentences were short and incomplete.. The hypermnesia of the dream and the resort to infantile material have http://startso11.info/www.zs2.koszalin.pl.html become main supports in our theory.. I'm not hungry, mother, was http://startso11.info/http%3A%2F%2Fwww.smd3.fora.pl%2F.html the revised edition which the freckle-faced boy offered to the maternal ear.. We--shall begin proceedings at http://startso11.info/makxior.html once.. The old http://startso11.info/arabie.html gentlemen who had been shoved about enjoyed the pun too much to be angry.. Yassir, yassir,--the old man's face stretched with a delighted grin--dat's him, http://startso11.info/wojskowa+akademia+techniczna.html dat's it.. The mention of this dish http://startso11.info/drizoro.html brings my own childhood and that of my child's near together.. I don't think you have thrown http://startso11.info/bajka+teatr.html your money away in the land.. But he opened his http://startso11.info/www.gemini-tgp.com.html eyes and looked bravely out of the window; it was time to conquer all this; it was indeed growing ridiculous.. Accordingly he set out on this business, but was unsuccessful http://startso11.info/o%C5%9Brodek+interwencji+kryzysowej+bochnia.html at two livery stables, the carriages being all out.. But it's a type, http://rebestal.info/controlling+info.html you know--not individual...
