So I got an award..

I like this way of keeping the blog alive and encouraging others to do as well.. Tags or Awards or just खो ..

So I get this award from Gomathi and as per her post I need to follow the rules


The rules:

1. 10 random facts about yourself.
2. Answer the questions please.
3. Nominate 11 bloggers with less than 200 followers.
4. Write 11 questions for them to answer.


So here I go
10 Random Facts
1. I love dark chocolates... darker they are more I like them.
2. I am a Farmville addict.. unless I am visiting our real world farmpur regularly.
3. In songs, I like them only if I understand and like the lyrics. The music - IMHO- flows with the words. 
4. I am very lazy.. and I try hard not to be. 
5. I am always homesick :( even after staying out of home for long stretches (Engg 4 years, US 2.5 years, Aus now 5 months) ..I always want to go home!!!
6. I believe more in Palmistry than horoscopes. Again Lines on your hand keep changing too..I have seen them change on mine !
7. I hate anything related to clothes - shopping, washing, ironing - you say it and I hate it :)
8. I like to stay connected to the internet. Not exactly a junkie, but keep reading things and updates. 
9. I want to start Technical blogging but point 4 affects me.. :)
10. I want to write a novel someday.. Even if no one reads it, I am ok. 



The Q&A session:

1. What is the first thing you do when you wake up?

Think about - do I need to get up now or can snooze and sleep a bit more..(Refer to fact#4)

2. How do you express your anger?

You can see my anger pretty easily and in words and body language. If I can restrain it, it will come as sarcasm.

3. If you had to live on a lonely island and take only one book with you, which one would that be?

It would be one I want to read and hence very accessible and have not been able to pick up at all.

4. An embarrassing moment/ fact about you?

I am very forgetful about my appearance..and hence never can make a first good impression :(

5. How much do you let your academic success/failure affect your life?

Academic success has surely paved a way ahead while pursuing academics. I mean, the next level of education asks for how much did you get in your previous exam. But then real life, where it really matters  who cares how much you scored in your SSC ?

6. Do you believe in first impressions?

I believe in first intuitions. Isn't it same as first impressions ? No. A person might impress you in first meeting. But you always get an intuition if the person matches the impression or not. 

7. What period of your life do you think was best?

Now.. I love to think about the past, but I think now is better than before. 

8. Do you live in present more or brood about past and fantasize about future more?

I believe in past whatever decisions I have taken are based on my knowledge, situation and analysis at that point of time and I continue to do so in present as well as in future. So Why worry? Just stay here and now and do the right thing.

9. Your favorite cartoon and why?

Tom and Jerry :) 

10. And finally Harry potter or Twilight?

Harry Potter.. There is more maturity in young Harry Potter than the teenager Bella.
