I've been tagged again. And since I am at a loss of inspiration and cuz I’m busy with CAT preparations and endless mock CATs, to post anything, I thought I might as well complete this task. Yep, some task indeed!
Here is the Unspectacular Quirk tag (copied from my tagger):
1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger's blogs, letting them know that they have been tagged.
1: …have a very annoying habit of saying 'touch wood' every time I say something nice about something or someone. Yes I know, it’s very childish and at my age, people think I’m stupid to use it. I do hope I give it up soon. Touch wood.
2:... scared to go for a haircut. It’s always at least a week after I first decide that it’s time for a haircut that I actually turn up at the parlour. And an hour prior to leaving, I would’ve messaged and called around 3 to 4 friends of mine asking if they thought it was better I got a haircut done then or later. I actually feel my stomach churning when I sit on the chair and the parlour lady goes chop-chop while I think... oh dear god please let her not mess up :(
3: I feel drowsy when someone strokes my hair... and it’s not just mildly drowsy... I sleep off! It’s enough if someone happened to stroke my hair for more than maybe 10 minutes to put me to sleep. Now THIS, my friends, I believe is incredibly strange (like something out of a jataka fable where the mighty and cruel lion is tamed by stroking its mane?). Anyone who shares this weird one?
4: ...scared of crossing roads. Every time I successfully cross a busy road, I say a small thank you to God. Yes very evidently, I don’t know how to drive, trust me, I’ve tried! But I have this mortal fear of roads and moving vehicles; I never showed much progress and then my teacher (my darling brother) gave up on me. After all, who would want the embarrassment of having to teach someone who goes 'oh god oh god oh gaaaawwwwd', every time she started the scooty.
5: ...obsessed with losing weight. That, neither makes me a great looker nor do I have perfect vital statistics (oh... faaar from that!) but yes I’m very finicky about putting on weight. So I’m always trying hard to control my gorging tendencies (trying being the highlighted word here). All this when I simply LOVE food! It’s so cruel and unfair... sob :'( but the problem is I hate doing it and so I crib and cry and piss off everyone around me when I have to refrain from having a pizza slice or a scoop of chocolate ice cream :( and of course, the people who suffer the most by all this are my friends and family, them being at the receiving end of my 'oh no... mein phir se moti ho gayi' rants.
6:... hate taking tablets. Even b-complex capsules for that matter.
Voila! I’ve said it all! And I thought I’d never be able to finish this one…
So well, the honoured tagged list is:
gunj, sameera, riversoul, bhai with chai, vinay, arvind (this time it IS mandatory arvind!)
