I have opinions. Like it or not.

6 6 6 The Number of The Beast

SEV tagged me to write 6 random things about me. Here they are. Go read his blog for the rules. And I’m tagging the usual suspects – Rayshma, DDD, Preethi, Pixie.

– I cannot go to bed leaving dishes in the sink overnight. Now that shouldn’t have come as a surprise to you. Do you know me but at all?

– I always bite the nail on my right hand thumb before anything important. Usually, it’s before exams and I bite the nail off so deep that I invariably end up with a painful right hand especially when I need it to be most wieldy.

– I have a flair for languages. I taught myself how to read and write Tamil, since I was never educated in Chennai, so it wasn’t part of my school curriculum. I can speak at least as good, if not better Marathi than my Maharashtrian counterparts. Raj Thackeray, back off!! I can understand and read Kannada, I took French for about 2 years in junior college (yeah, I think I even topped the class in the subject, but don’t ask me anything now, I don’t even remember un peu).

– I always work my butt off to get what I want, and when I have it, I throw it away, knowing that the thrill was in proving that I could do it. It makes me end things on my terms, and walk away while I’m at the top.

– I need my bath water to be searing hot. I leave the cold shower knob almost unturned. Even in the summer.

– I have excessively dry skin. I needed to moisturize when I was in India, even during the summer. After coming here I moisturize twice a day in the summer with an intensive care lotion and during the winter I use baby oil (also twice a day).

Ok, you guys. I’m at work so I couldn’t link you up. Will do when I get home.

  15. @SEV: My blog, my post, and you’re insulting ME? You might ask why I didn’t delete the comment and I want to have a better reason than comment count, but….
    @rayshma: OMG girl, how many times have I told you, increase comment count in a discreet manner? Ab no prize.
    @Sachin: Yeah, I wish. Current agenda: learn gulti, because otherwise I can’t talk to my colleagues.
    @DDD: Kahan kiya? Abhi tak to nahi dikha. Jao tumse mai katti hu. Also plz refer to bottom comment-reply for dry skin explanation.
    @LOTS: I don’t think so, I only started taking those ultra hot showers after I came to the US and I have had dry skin since I can remember. And I do remember because my mom used to chase me around the house threatening to apply butter on my arms and legs. Talk about childhood abuse, hmph!
    @Pavi: Refer above for dry skin. Aww babes, of course I come by your blog. But you pose such intellectual questions that I am stumped for answers myself. πŸ™‚
    @Preethi: I do not knwo what moderation is, that has always been my problem. Maybe I should have put that up there as well. πŸ˜›
    @Sudipta: Refer above for dry skin. Babu moshay all I know in Bengali is the usual bhalo bhashi stuff. πŸ˜€ Why don’t you teach me Bengali?
    @Pixie: I saw it girl. You could have added as many as you wanted!

  16. what is the word “discreet” to be meaning?
