Of thirty questions

I've been tagged!

This is something I've been waiting for quite a long time now. I've read other bloggers getting tagged and sending them out and it seemed like a fun thing to do. I could have asked to be tagged but I didnt want to hurt my precious ego. So you see ? Waiting for something does work!

Many many thanks to Ann for tagging me. May you rest assured that you have had the honor.

Without further ado please do delve into my complex mind:

1. LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN A THEATER:
Race. It's fun when you watch a bad movie with V and K. Especially the part when a character said that you involuntarily say the truth when you're drunk. The three of us looked at each other at the same time.


2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING?
"Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand. Nice theoroms but its kinda awkward when no two characters have a normal conversation without delving into philosophy. For ex:

A: Hi! What did you have for breakfast.

B: (starts off on a two page essay about objectivism which includes something about bacon and eggs)


3. FAVORITE BOARD GAME?
Monopoly. I rule during the beginning and the middle of the game but once Mayfair is lost ... so am I

4. FAVORITE MAGAZINE?
That I've read ? Times. Favorite magazine I would like to read ? National Geographic.
Favorite magazine I'd like to rip to shreds ? Cosmopolitan.

5. FAVORITE SMELLS?
The smell of paint and gasoline. Oddly I know a lot of people who like the same.


6. FAVORITE SOUNDS?
It was the breaking glass intro of Stone Cold Steve Austin. But all that changed a year when I heard a tiger roar in the jungle at 2.45 am. That was exotic!

7. WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD?
The feeling of not having accomplished anything. The feeling of failure.


8. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE?
Its a toss between these two: "I am so not drinking ever again" and "Dang It !! Not another wet dream !!"

9. FAVORITE FAST FOOD PLACE?
McDonalds. I like their burgers. I do not like Roland. I've had a thing for clowns ever since I read Stephen King's IT.


10. FUTURE CHILD'S NAME?
If its a girl: Navomika. If its a boy: ... I dont know ... Chucky, maybe ?


11. FINISH THIS STATEMENT. "IF I HAD A LOT OF MONEY I'D...?
Buy a house, get me a 59" plasma TV, a PS 3, an iMac and a Porsche. No ... you're not getting any of it.


12. DO YOU DRIVE FAST?
Yes. Which is one of the reasons my Dad does not let me drive.


13. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?
No. I dont trust myself with them.


14. STORMS-COOL OR SCARY?
Cool! Till it tries to kill me.


15. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR?
A Maruti Zen. Remains to be my favorite car till date.


16. FAVORITE DRINK?
Vodka. Just love it!

17. FINISH THIS STATEMENT, "IF I HAD THE TIME I WOULD
Remake the Star War prequels, make them immortal to the movie industry, walk up to George Lucas and scream: "THATS HOW YOU DO IT YOU RETARD !!!"


18. DO YOU EAT THE STEMS ON BROCCOLI?NO!!!
Never had broccoli. Wooohooooo!!!


19. IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR CHOICE?
Anyone see "The Island." Ewan McGregor dyes his hair in a particular way. I dont know what that color is but if any of you do ... let me know!

20. NAME ALL THE DIFFERENT CITIES/TOWNS YOU HAVE LIVED IN.
Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Thrissur, Bangalore, Calicut


21. FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?
Soccer. Man U rules !


22. ONE NICE THING ABOUT THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU.
She's cute. :D


23. WHAT'S UNDER YOUR BED?
When I had nightmares I used to have a crucifix. Then when I started sleep walking I had a cricket bat, a knife and the TV remote.

There's nothing there now. Except maybe Debonair.


24. WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE BORN AS YOURSELF AGAIN?
Yes. And I'd like to live the same life all over again, so I can rectify a couple of life altering mistakes.


25. MORNING PERSON, OR NIGHT OWL?
Night Owl. I sleep at around 3 am.

26. OVER EASY, OR SUNNY SIDE UP?
Sunny side up please with some pepper over the top.


27. FAVORITE PLACE TO RELAX?
Tiger Ranch, Bandipur. This is an amazing jungle resort.


28. FAVORITE PIE?
I dont like pies.


29. FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR?
Chocolate ice cream!


30. OF ALL THE PEOPLE YOU TAGGED THIS TO, WHO'S MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND FIRST?

@ Ann - Navomika is actually an Indian name. Dont ask me what it means, I just like it. But now since you brought it up ... it does sound Russian.

@Offended - Oh nothing to be scared off, the pills my therapist gives me work just fine. :D

@Mr. Talksheet - thanks for visiting, and I'll be sure to visit yours.
