I’ve done it again !! :)

J from “On the Rocks” tagged me. Considering the fact that there have been just tags that I’ve been doing the last few posts….I now seem to have given out all my secrets, my quirks, wants, everything….

1. Name Three Most Valuable Assets?

Honesty, compassion, humour ( trying to see humour in every moment of your life)

2. If you have the chance, what would you probably say to your beloved one?

Would you make some tea for me??

3. If you were to be stranded on a deserted island, who are the 3 blog buddies you would take with you?

Now, I have been a very adventurous person, I accept, but I have never wanted to get shot…No way am I going to shortlist. The more the merrier…all of them…please

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

Back to my bed, every morning, after a really no sleep night

5. If you can have 1 dream to come true, what would it be?

Seeing my child smiling through his tears. In this rat race to win, I’d like him to accept failure and success in the same spirit.

6. Till now, what is the moment that you regret the most?

Regrets just make you feel aware of your inability to handle something. I would like to leave things behind, and move on. Not to look back. So no….I have no regrets.

7. What are you afraid to lose the most?

My existence. Which is defined by my most wonderful family, my friends , the crazy ones and the whiny ones too…and ‘my smile through tough times’ ability

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

I don’t know….First,i’ll be so confused with all the suggestions around me, but I’m sure, I’ll just go buy lots of gifts and give it to all the kids in an orphanage.

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

If I sense the person also does, then maybe I would. Can’t say….remember I’m the ‘should I , shouldn’t I?’ sort….

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

Well, not knowing J personally. I might be wrong. But from what I’ve seen through his reads…he comes across as a very sensitive, head on the shoulders kind of person and a very humorous guy. J, am I wrong??

11. What are the requirements that you wish from your other half?

Humour, willing to be adventurous.. (now, don’t go looking for hints and signals, u dirty minds!!! ) and like the AXN movies a little less

12. Which type of person do you hate the most?

The rude, impolite and obnoxious ones.

13. What is your ambition?
To stick to my goals and swim harder against the tide

14. What is the thing that will make you think someone is a bad person?

Bad…no, I can’t think of someone like that. Maybe they are bound by circumstances…so they could be reacting to it.

15. If you could do one thing different in life, what would it be?

To learn to say NO! politely but assertively.

16. Are you a shopaholic or no?

No…firstly I shop only as a necessity, and even when I do go out…I land up shopping for others. So if that qualifies, yes.. But you can’t drag me to each and every exhibition, sale and discount happenings in town. I’m not the person for you….

17. What is your stress buster?

Music, reading, and many times, I’ve been known to cook the most time consuming dishes (I’ve made kozhukattais, during my sons exams, not one or two, but 108,something which people normally make for festivals) to ease my brains out

18. What should be done to people who make such long tags..

Award them for thinking up so many questions…and patiently waiting for the tagged ones to do it. J…are you listening??

19. Do you think God actually exists?

Considering we come from a family who has a festival for each and every sneeze, cough and smile…I’m now acclimatized to accepting the presence of the power above. But I trust and believe there is a power above guiding me around. And if that is GOD then so be it

20. What is the one thing you would change about yourself?
My habit of procrastination

This question was mine to add in place of another in the tag.

Now tagging others. Do it in your own time…

Preethi from Incessant musings
Rayshma from doodlez
Madhumita from One True Thing
Tys from life and other such nonsense

Now for the instructions. Remove 1 question from the tag and add your personal question. Make it a total of 20 questions, then tag people in your list, list them out at the end of this post. Notify them that he/she has been tagged.

Done…now I’m off….happy times all of you!!

romila said...

Nice tag replies....I'm just dreading of the kid's exam scenarios where a parent also get into full tension. My daughter is just 2 years ol' but the homeworks, exams will come once she starts school.

Madhumita. said...

Prats it would be great of you could post some recipes - especially veg ones. Do you have the time to squeeze that in?

Rambler said...

Thinking aloud said... did this one too? :)

we think alike in a few places...u cook to relieve stress!!!!!...I bow to you...i burn when i get stressed :(

But loved it all...:)

Prats said...

@keshi Thanks babe....I have an adventurous one here...there's no fun or else

@pointblank thank u...and ur welcome

@romila You must relax till the time comes...and then its the same game all us parents play

@madhumita Oh yeah, of course I can do that...tell me if you have any specific types...veggies , gravies, north or south types...i'll do it. ,I 'm not a great expert though :)

@rambler. Sometimes yes, I do like them, but when the faces blend with the background and the music sounds like some kind of haunting melodies...then no way!!! and if its watched in the middle of the baba..

@TA heheh yes don't we...there are the "oh Gosh! I burnt it today" days too,

Hip Grandma said...

vEENs said...

Learn to say NO! politely but assertively

I knew we had a few things in common.. you just prove it with every post..

108 of those!!!! Party time for the neighbors ehh?!!!

luffed it!

--xh-- said...

nice answers, prats...
nxt time whn u make kozukattais, ping me if u need some one to finish them off :-D

J said...

:* you the best!!

The 1 dream couldn't be better and more apt.

And nah I wasn't waiting 'patiently' for the tagged ones to do it, was on a trip to writers block. Patience is a virtue I have not :D

c e e d y said...

nice answers - shows a humble person behind - who has taken many things on their face value (god and festivities) but there is something else brewing behind that exterior (sorry if I am wrong )

c e e d y said...

BTW I am going to blogroll you - hope its ok

Prats said...

@HHG hehe thank you so much for giving me the benefit of doubt :D, but since i'm a person who likes having people around me...i'd love all of you to come along

@Veens....yes, so there comes out our secrets..still learning the art...are you??

@xh thank you...and I need to think about that....cos finishing them wont be a problem...but sure would love to have you along too :)

@j **bows down Japanese style ** Thank you. And good thing you told me about your not being patient now....writer's block...u have them too??? aaawww *hugs*

@ceedy welcome here...and thank you. I try my best to be what I show to the outside world...but i'm sure like everyone, we have an inner criminal in us ;) ...nah, what you see is what you get.
and yeah...roll on...would have no probs with that...

Guruprasad said...

i like these as long as i don't have to do them ;)

back to bed after a 'no sleep' night? (and then you tell people not to get ideas!!! what do you expect?) :P

our existence can never be defined by others... don't you think?

and what is the answer to the question you added? aren't you supposed to answer it yourself too?

Preethi said...

Done :) for once I was really quick.. will take up the other tag soon...
by the way .. loved this one "Would you make some tea for me??" and kozhakattais that too 108 as stress busters... you rock!!

Prats said...

@ guruprasad You never know one day you might get tagged to do this....

And yeah.that warning was for another answer 11.
Oh oh...I really didnt see the flow of thinking out a question I left it aside...shall answer that...

My existence is defined by them...I guess each of us have our definitions. That doesn't mean we sverve from our basic charectistics. But yes they are the "all" for me

@preethi hey thanks...will go over after this and take a look. Yeah...I can be called crazy ain't I?

UL said...

Shruti said...
