playing the tag game :)

I have just had an extended lazy weekend at home and have loads of lazy thoughts and ideas dreamily swimmimg in the clear blue ocean of my mind's sky... but then my routerwala seems to have taken a pledge of not coming and fixing my net router so I am down to scavenging a few minutes in the lab class for my blog and what better way to spend it than to reply to long overdue tags

There are three tags that i am going to deal woth in this post

the first one was by IMPRESSIONIST and goes like this:

I had to write a six word memoir and this is it...

I am a...

"wild adventure in a crazy dream

The second tag was by d sinner and its a quessionare about me.. do i hear any complaints that i don't share personal stuff here?? :D :D :D

Instructions: Remove 1 question from below, and add in your personal question, make it a total of 20 questions, then tag 8 people in your list, list them out at the end of this post. Notify them in their chat box that he/she has been tagged.

1. Name three most valuable assets?

a pencil, a diary and a well-stocked library(could be a lappy with a net conn in place of all three) (no i don't consider people as assets.. they are companions to be cared for and enjoyed.. not things to be used and valued for the level of assistance they can provide)
2. One truth in your life that haunts you every day?

The fact that no matter how hard I try or how much i want to rebel.. there are still too many strings holding me down.. too many gates I can never cross..
3. If you were to be stranded on a desert island, who are the four blog buddies you would take alongside with you?

hmmm.. I would love to take everyone 'coz each one has some unique characteristic that I never tire of studying, but if it has to be four.. it would be

Soup for her sheer joy of living.. there is such exuberance in her that she can make me smile and raise my spirits under any circumstances

Eternal optimista for being my guarding angel

Gonecase for being such an absolute darling all the time (and for his cooking abilities of course ;) ;) :P)

and reeta skeeter for being a great friend and such a lot of fun

4. Where is the place that you want to go the most?

hmmm.... that would have to be the end of the universe and beyond and you bet i'll get there someday :D
5. If you can have one dream to come true, what would it be?

hmm.... I know this sounds kiddish, but I wish i was a witch in Hogwarts amd a great one at that.. how about Ginny's sense of humour and her spirit combined with hermionie's brains??

6. Till now, what is the moment that you regret the most?
I know a lot of people say "life is too short for regrets", but I think they are just being dishonest, I think its ok to have regrets, as long as you don't spend the rest of your life wallowing in them and thus turning it into one big fat regret

as for my regrets.. I have quite a few, but the biggest one has to be not following a more artistic line of work and choosing to be an engineer just 'coz it was the safest bet even though I am convinced it is neither my destiny nor my field of talent

7.What are you afraid to lose the most?

My family, my freedom of choice and my imagination

8. What would you do if you found a briefcase full of money?

Try to get it to the rightful owner and if that's not possible then donate it (it doesn't belong to me and no i am not being a hypocrite)

9. If you meet someone that you love, would you confess to him/her?

no I am tooscared of rejection and too egoistical and basically just want to be vooed(did i mention i am too romantic??) ... but that doesn't mean i won't give out signals and if he can't understand them then i am sure he is just not worth my time

10. List out 3 good points of the person who tagged you.

neha.. well, I don't know her personally but from what I have read.. She is a talented writer, socially conscious (she deals beautifully with so many sensitive issues, i wish i could write socially relevant things like she does.. girl you really make a difference) and a caring and sensitive person :)
11. What are the requirements that you wish from your other half?

aaaaaaaaah now this is going to be a very very long list(why do you think I am still single?? ;P )

(i)must have a great sense of humour

(ii)and a ready wit

(iii)and a sense of freedom and self

(iv) should be able to understand and respect what i write

(v) should respect my individuality and should treat me like an equal

(vi) but should still cherish me like a princess

(vii) should be head over heels for me :D

(viii) should know how to cook (guys i am just being practical!!)

(ix) should have nothing agaist books or dogs

(x) and yes how can i forget, should have an active imagination and a great sense of adventure and should be an absolute romantic(else i doubt he could live with me)

Child abusers, religious fanatics, rapists, cheaters, people who look at life with rose coloured glasses, supposedly "perfect" people

14. My Question: If you were given the chance to have one super power.. what would it be and why?

3) I love Hot chocolate fudge and all kinds of dark chocolates... they make me go mmmmmmm.. :)
4) I am lazy to the point of being a sloth
5) I have discovered an all new passion--badminton which I try to play every evening, it gives me a mighty high and helps fill the otherwise empty evening hours.
