Tag, Tagger, Taggest!

Lostworld, my blogger-twin (seriously, we sometimes think alike), has passed on the Honest Scrap Award to me. Thanks a ton girl. Dunno about the ‘honest’ part but I am sure I have loads of s'crap’ to write *wink*.

So now, the rules to claim this award are-
1.I must thank the person who gave me the award and list their blog and link it (check)
2.I must list 10 honest things about myself (err)
3.I must put a copy of Honest Scrap logo on my blog (check)
4.I must select atleast 7/ 8 other worthy bloggers and list their links (hmm)
5.I must notify the bloggers of the award and hopefully they will follow the above three requirements also (OK boss)

10 honest things about myself. Hmm..10. ten. T-E-N! hmm.. Lets see how this goes. Aah ok raiyyyyah (Bus conductor style):

1). I had a troubled childhood (hard hitting sentence that is! Brilliant start.. bhesh). So as a child I was never able to celebrate my birthday in school. Being born in the month of May (yup summer holidays), I had to go through terrible mental stress. I could never distribute Lacto King
or Eclairs to my class mates. I never wore “color dress” to school. Never had my classmates sing “happy birdday dooo you”. Never did I take my ‘best friend’ around classrooms to distribute chocolates. Never! Sniff… This wish of mine remains unfulfilled.
2). As a child (Yes I want to talk about my childhood. This is my only chance okay). I was saying, as a child I was ultra silent and reserved. My then new neighbor thought my sister was the only daughter to my parents. So much for being a cute, silent and an ‘untroublesome’ kid (pssst my parents wonder if I am the same daughter of theirs. Now they just can’t make me shut up).
3). I am not fussy about food. I eat anything that is vegetarian. Junk food is preferable.
4). I love my job. No, I am not being sarcastic. I truly love my job. People think I am crazy to work for a start up. Having worked in two big organizations I have come to realize that size of a firm does not really matter. And... well I want to continue but will stop here heehee :P
5). I am not much of a shopping person. My sister dreads shopping with me coz I stress her out. I roll my eyes constantly, tap my left foot, sit in one corner and sulk, you get the drift. Having said that I lose track of time when in a book store. I never use ‘shopping’ and ‘books’ in the same sentence.
6). Music to me is like breathing. Besides, music heals me and keeps me going. It could be anything- stress, stupid fights with family/friends, depression, PMS, heartbreaks...
7). I’ll like any place that has a lake and is filled with trees. I can just sit there and do nothing. I might get bored after an hour, but once in a while my mind needs serenity.
8). I sometimes laugh for no reason. And most of the time I can’t control my silly laugh. I all of a sudden remember a funny story or an amusing incident or a silly joke in the middle of a presentation or a meeting and almost die controlling my laughter. I cough to hide it. Pretentious coughs are so obvious.
9). I can finish a Bourbon biscuit packet in flat 4 minutes.
10). Life they say needs to be taken with a pinch of salt, well I take it with a slice of lime and Tequila ..muhahahha (honestly I don't know what I am talking about. I guess I'm sleepy. but I am sure that added some flavor to my otherwise boring list)
Lost, thanks for tagging me I say. Totally enjoyed writing this post.
Tra la la la now I tag:
Maanasi – Coz I have to tag her if not an ant somewhere will commit suicide.
Vimmuuu – Coz I am sure he’ll have something funny to share.
Ani – Coz even though I know him I feel I don’t. hee confusing no. So let’s hope he’ll clear the confusion
Kanagu – Coz it’d be nice to know more about him :)
Poornima - Coz I love what she writes. Hopefully this'll inspire her to write more :)

As I told u, I share point one with you being a May born myself, but I have distributed chocolates... remember these parties and cake cutting and all that... the best was my 7th std wedding which was equivalent to a mini wedding in terms of celebration :D my mum took the cake when it came to such things... well, am digressing :)

And, oh yeah, let's take life with tequila and lime and pinch of salt sometime together ;-)

Swaram said...

lostworld said...

I was all set to poke,pinch and slap you to get a post out of you! Did I haunt you in your dreams?!;-)

Wicked girl..troubled childhood it seems;-D I, on the other hand hated wearing colour-clothes, distributing sweets, the song singing .. all that attention on my birthday!! Well, atleast we have 1 mis-match.

Shopping and me..U know it all now!
I think we must visit a bookstore together..I can lose myself in Blossoms literally.

Music..well, I've never shown any inclination(used to sleep in the classes). But I appreciate it. Would love to hear your voice.

Very well-done dear. *Stands up & applauds!!* :-)

The Holy Lama said...

My second son is born in May and I understand the bday stress you are talking about. But when his complaining gets to my nerves, I simply ask, " Who asked to be born premature? I planned you for June."

Shruthi said...

Shruthi said...

@Adisha, welcome :) and thank you.
See if you find something nice for your signature. the site has some good ones :)

BrownPhantom said...

No one should be made to eat Arrowroot Biscuits :).
We'll easily cross over a billion followers for that group.

Rajlakshmi said...

SG said...

The dessert will be chocolate pizza. Please read my post dated August 9, 2009 titled "Pizza vs Pizza".

Destiny's child... said...

Really enjoyed reading this. Don't know why, but I generally like reading about others...curiosity...human nature...and your list was very interesting indeed :)
n btw, Even I have this strange problem of laughing for no particular reason. And same pinch, it comes in situations that can SERIOUSLY do without it. I cough too and when it doesn't work, I drop whatever I am holding, bend down, pretend to to pick it up, pretend to search, laugh my heart out...and then I straighten up! Try it, it works! :D

Shruthi said...

@BP, hehheh true how awful those biscuits are!

@Rajlakshmi, Thank you :)

@SG,hearing firsht time and already loving it :) will read your post :)

@Destiny's Child, hahahaha me likes your idea. will try it tomorrow; have an 'important' meeting ;)
