Ok, I'm tagged!

Tagged by OK , Gradwolf, Drenched (And I didn't have to threaten them to do this. Honest). I'm putting another post on hold for this tag ONLY cuz OK said I would respond first! ;)

1. Last movie you saw in a theater?

A. Considering people in Chennai seem to have nothing else to do and all the theatres are 'House Full' all the time (and so are all the restaurants, coffee shops, pubs etc etc), the last movie I saw was "Velli thirai" - a Tam movie by Prakash Raj and Prithivi Raj. Decent movie. Pretty interesting.

2. What book are you reading?

A. "The name is Rajnikanth"- By Dr.Gayathri. His Biography. And I'm extremely honoured to be reading it. I'm gonna do a post on Thalaivar soon.

3. Favorite board game?

A. Monopoly & Scrabble. Monolpoly because it's probably the only time I'd have enough money to buy hotels and stuff. And scrabble because I alwayz win ;)

4. Favorite magazine?

A. Hmm, I don't know. Used to read Young Times as a kid. Read Reader's Digest for a while. But it's too sob these days. Read Cosmos once in a while, when my sis asks me to check out some latest shade of blush-on or the likes, but not otherwise, too much of sex for me to handle.

5. Favorite smells?

A. Mummy's cooking. And food in general.

6. Favorite sounds?

A. Daddy's voice. He sings like a dream and I can never, ever get enough of him singing. Yes, Im a total Daddy's girl!

7. Worst feeling in the world?

A. Self-pity

8. What is the first thing you think of when you wake up?

A. On a weekday, I'd wish I was in college. MBA to be specific, because I never went to college at all during those days

On a weekend, it'd be,"What's for lunch?" Because I'd pretty much wake up around that time.

9. Favorite fast food place?

A. None of those fast food places really serve anything 'fast', so I don't know.

10. Future child’s name?

A. I don't trust the people in the Blog World and hence to prevent name-theft from occuring I'm not gonna mention them (though my friends know of this). Maybe when the lil one is born I'll let you all know.

11. Finish this statement. “If I had lot of money I’d….?”

A. I don't believe in hypothetical statements.

12. Do you drive fast?

A. Yea, in my dreams.

13. Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?

A. If that's what you'd call my Dad, then yea ;)

14. Storms - cool or scary?

A. Scary. I'm scared of the dark. Storms are dark, gloomy and hence scary.

15. What was your first car?

A. Considering Q.11 is hypothetical, you should be knowing that I don't have a lotta money. Infact, I don't have any money. Not even to buy one of those miniature play cars. And so this Q is baseless and doesn't deserve an answer.

16. Favorite drink?

A. Water. And Tequila. And Vodka.

17. Finish this statement, “If I had the time I would….”?

A. Another 'if'. I don't have the time for this!

18. Do you eat the stems on broccoli?

A. I'll eat anything on anything. Uhm, not really ;)

19. If you could dye your hair any color, what would be your choice?

A. Black. Because right now it's (a nice) brown.

20. Name all the different cities/towns you’ve lived in?

A. Bahrain, Chennai.

21. Favorite sports to watch?

A. Cricket, soccer, tennis & basket ball.

22. One nice thing about the person who sent this to you?

A. There are 3 people who sent this to me. So here's one nice thing about each:

1. OK: He thinks I'm cool. Ahem.

2. Drenched: She called me the Don of the Blog World [However she meant it, I'll take it the good way]

3. Gradwolf: He tagged me. And he said sorry for not tagging me the last time.

23. What’s under your bed?

A. Dust. Time to change the maid.

24. Would you like to be born as yourself again?

A. Oh, most definitely! Just maybe in a different place, with a different name. Also, maybe a different nose, thicker lips and bigger eyes. And oh, silky hair and a petite stature and a bit shorter and......

25. Morning person, or night owl?

A. I'm sleepy either ways so that would make me...?

26. Over easy, or sunny side up?

A. I don't know what Over easy is but sunny side up isn't my style.

27. Favorite place to relax?

A. My green sofa.

28. Favorite pie?

A. Apple pie, with vanilla ice-cream

29. Favorite ice cream flavor?

A. Baskin Robbins Rainbow Sherbert

30. Of all the people you tagged this to, who’s most likely to respond first?

A. Haven't tagged anyone yet. But I'd say either Satti or xh. The others just don't do requests!

Anywayz, I tag xh, Satti, Prathiboo, Janie, Mayth aunty and Busy Writer.

P.S: 1. I read Drenched's tag completely now and realize she also felt I'd respond first. And so, this tag is for you too, lil gurl ;)

2. I also realize I'm not the first one to do it cuz Shenoy (from OK's list of Tagged) beat me to it. But I still am the first from Drenched's list (of 2).

ROFL!!! People would disagree. :P

I meant the Don thingie in a good way. Be happy that people are scared of you. I always am. :D ;)

And tall is beautiful! I could kill to be a couple of inches taller. I have a good enough nose but no height to actually look down upon the idiots. I'm almost 20. If I drink milk every day, will I grow tall now? *puppy faced wondering look*

Preets, ask appa to buy you a nice scooty. You have to speed kido (with helmet of course)
I'll take you for a ride one day :) (pun unintended)

I liked the self-pity one. The feeling kills you..and the people around you too.

Classy, as usual.

Anonymous said...

Is pun intended in the title?

Telling Ok...here dude, I am tagged you see :p


I love starting these flame wars in public forums

PREETI said...

@ Gradwolf: From my deep analysis in the past few days, I have come to identify your blog-la-war-o-mania and understand it to be a perfect, clinical case. Tch Tch, therapy offers would be of no avail. If only there could be something we could do...douse you with water perhaps? Drenched, would you be an angel and help?


Now, my answer to your question...Why would i say it to him, it was HE who tagged me first! :P

gradwolf said...

adi pavi!!

I rest my case :p

Drenched said...

"Drenched, would you be an angel and help?"

Of course! *pours three pails of ice-cold water on Gradwolf's head*
Teeheehee. :D

PREETI said...

@PS: Thnx :)

@Gargling: No favorites...The scales are balanced...Bahrain is childhood and Chennai is independance and adulthood... :)

@janie: DO the tag...PLZ!

@Gradwolf: I declared truce on OK's...so truce?

@Drenched: THANX! just the help i needed.. :) Btw, truce declared ;)

@Arun: Thanx Thanx.. *Bows down*

@Ziah: Thanx! Whr have u been!?

PREETI said...

wickedtaurus said...

Interesting read for a newbie on your blog! :)
# 1 - peeps got nothing else to do eh? so good ol' days of brood expansion, multiplying to beat china is a long lost patriotic dream...sigh!
# 13 - tweet
# 18 - good u had a change of heart. eat anything on aything has resulted in "Nyotaimori". caution (insert stop sign R) whilst googling.
# 23 - hehe

PREETI said...

@Wickedtaurus: Nyotaimori!!! I dint have to google it cuz i know jap, but i dint even think of it when i wrote tat...HAHAHAHAHA! And that's definitely not what i meant :D

And seriously, people have nothing else to do...By the time i can book a tkt for a movie, i guess id have sprouted quite a few white hair!

n welcome aboard!

wickedtaurus said...

well "Nyotaimori" was some sorta japanese dance like Kyomai in my head till the day i stepped into a ultra fancy sushi place-hadaka & got id'd. ID for seeing some "hadaka" fish? was quickly hushshh clarified by one of 'em boys. Separate parlors for the Usuals and Nyo customers resurrected a bit of my buried appetite. But i did lose the chance with the hawt host by ordering vezz sushi..sigh o sigh!

oh ty ty. me fastened seat belt and all. ;)

PREETI said...

@Wicked: Reallyyyy wicked ;) Hahahaha! U actually gt a chance to see the 'Nyo' in action!Whoa! Hahaha!

Glad the seat belt's done :D
