Time for some self-introspection

I admit...I would have done this 25 point thing about myself, even if I wasn't tagged by Avdi...When I sat back to think why I was so excited about the topic, I realised that I was craving for some "me time" for long.

Rules:Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.

1.Despite making chapatis for dinner for nearly 2 years now, I can't make them nice and soft. I guess its hereditary.

2.Carving in chalk pieces was my hobby for a long time. Before my career swallowed all the time that I had.

3.I just need to eat within minutes of feeling hungry, else I lose my temper. I really envy all those who could carry on with their work, skipping meals.

4.I simply love to watch and enjoy the bounties of nature. But still poetry eludes me (I can almost hear you saying "Thank God for that").I refused to move out of my previous house (which had a huge expanse of greenery all around).

5.I'm a storng willed person and this is my greatest asset.

6.I have an authoritative voice and tone. This might give an impression that I'm impolite/harsh to people who do not know me well. I've tried in vain to modulate my voice/tone.

7.Though I enjoy good company and prefer to hang around with people, I don't mind spending time all by myself.

8.I never get bored of shopping. Or window shopping. I could spend 3-4 hours in the same supermarket that I frequent, and come back with just a 2 pint milk can.

9.I have few, but very close friends.

10.I am VERY possessive about my things. And I'm trying hard to forego this habit. ( I don't think I could succeed though)

11.I love cooking... Love more to see happy and contented faces after a good meal cooked by me :D

12.When priorities change, I could forego something which I have loved dearly.eg. career
ps:Its just "something".. not "someone".

Gosh! its getting tough to list more!!
13.I do not believe in any kind of astrology.

14.I love children.

15.There's always been someone to care for me when I most needed.

16.I can talk for hours together over the phone, but would remember a huge deal of things only after I hang up.

17.I can understand people well.(mostly)

18.I'm usually punctual in keeping up schedules. (That surely doesn't mean that I never waste time).

19.I love it when I could only partially remember last night's dream. Its like a half read book.

20.As a child I thought I would grow up to become a nun. This thought lasted for say about a week..

21.I'm lazy in some respects. Like I really want to understand the share market thing and all that, but would not even make an attempt.

22.I was born on the 7th of some month and have many friends who were born on either 7th or some other date which adds up to 7.

23.I repect customs and traditions set forth by elders. But would follow ones that I'm practically able to follow.

24.It takes a long time for me to trust someone. (Not a ridiculously long time though!)

25.I'm not very comfortable watching movies in the cinema hall.. Crowds make me feel dizzy and out of place.

Honestly, after point no.12/13 I had to think hard. Its easier to hear some known person say (nice) things about us rather than we listing it out.

That was very very interesting list.
Do you still have those chalk pieces you carved? Do show us some snaps :)
lol and dont worry about them the chapatis. We southies are not meant for making them just like Northies cant make soft idlies ;)
Growing up to be a nun? Oh god lol! It reminded me of that Kajol-ArvindSwamy-Prabhu Deva movie. I forget the name!
And ditto on talking for hours over phone and remembering important things only after hanging up lol :))
That reminds me my tag is pending too sniff!

couchpapaya said...

wow, u really meant the introspection bit! am amazed at 2, i imagine it must be so tough to do!! and am the same wrt 3, for the longest time B and I would have fights around eating times because he never understood how i cld get irritated with low blood sugar (obviously he's one of those ppl who can starve for days with no problems :( ). now he just hauls me into the nearest restaurant :D loved reading this, found myself the same on so many points!!

ps. for chapattis, not true WIAN, i cant make decent ones .... and i cant make soft idis either. oh well it's just me the kitchen disaster

Vee said...

Count me in for 7 number. I was born on 16th of some month. :)

Then when was the last time you saw a new release in theater?

Sakhi said...

Glad to know more about you! :)

As for the chappati being soft, try keeping the dough for sometime once you make and sprinkle some water over it. Kneed it again when you wanna make the chapatis. I hope this is not an unwanted advice. :)

What did you carve on chalks?? It sounds interesting!

udtahaathi said...

To me it is such a unique hobby it made me curious to ask - Can I see the pics of the chalk carvings?

Bouncing-Bubble said...


my lovely bro still has those chalks...no snaps with me.. the movie is minsara kanavu.group of 5 of us decided that we would follow the path of our school princi. it was at the age of unspoilt 9 or 10! the girl who suggested this was the first to fall in love :D


really, I've tried this skipping meals.. its just not possible!wherever we go, husb.just makes sure there's atleast McD for me! atleast I shdn't be this choosy about my food!


Last that I saw was Golden Compass almost a year ago! I bet you almost slipped off your chair now hehe


oh come on! advices are always welcome! only none of the tips work for me :( something is wrong with my hands I guess lol/


not enough? I conveniently omitted the word "secrets"

Trust me, I really want to. Thank you!


yeah unique in the sense that I used to carve fingers too in the process.. never took pics..but the pices are safe

avdi said...

Bubbly, I read this in the morning and tried to comment but my connection was yoyoing like mad.

I am a number 7 too.. 7th October ! No longer we all get along, 25 (Smita), me, vee, baki ka pata nahi.

I have a friend who also gets very short tempered if she does not eat when hungry.

I think smita can do with some of your will power, browsing around in a supermarket and come back with just a milk pack.. haha !

Lovely list, I am glad it managed to drag you out of hibernation.

avdi said...

EISI, I checked out the comments esp to see your summing up of the personality comment.. where is it?

avdi said...

oops typo in my comment - 'no longer' should read as 'no wonder'

avdi said...

N WIAN too.. wiaN is also 25 right !

yeh, alas for you EISI you are 3 ..

Bouncing-Bubble said...


I really liked this, as I got to think abt myself after what it seems like eternity...

I'll write more often henceforth...

and yes yes, EISI-where's the sum-up?

Vee said...

No.... u had already mentioned that u find cinema hall weird so I was hoping u will say Titanic.. so thinking that I sat on floor not to fall off.. hehe.. but still 'GC' one year back, reply made me tumble on the floor itself. :)

Vee said...

Is it? BB, Me, Ava, Smita, Wian we all are number 7.. wooyaay!!! anyone else?? This is elite group I say

Bouncing-Bubble said...

Vee...lol... the husband is a movie freak and I do give him company! last year was extremely busy for him and so it stopped with watching movies online.

and hey u missed angel.. she's a 25 too :)

Smita said...

Chalk carving? I remember trying that in school days. The only problem was i used to think i was good but nobody else could understand what i had carved hehehe. Btw you can taken as to be rude and yes i agree you understand & judge people n situations quite well :) and Ava is so right lend me some will power dear! I badly need that he he he...And that seven logic is so suprising!

Bouncing-Bubble said...

Smi-u would have felt the same no, while spoke to you.. during my first appraisal, my mgr stopped halfway, and told me that its was like as if I was appraising him...lol would u believe?

Smita said...

Sh!It that's the most horrendous typo i have ever made. I meant you can't be taken as rude. No way not possible & this i am saying coz i have spoken to you.

udtahaathi said...

I am number 7 (Born on 7th of some month) and most of my friends in life are number seven too. Elite indeed.

Vee, when i was more enthusiastic, I started a cummunity called Seven in Orkut :)


Bouncing-Bubble said...

Smi-9/10 people believe that Im rude, in the first exchange of conversation.

uh-I think I know the month.
