20 Things about ME

Jaguu has tagged me to write 20 things about me. So here they go.

  1. I can not sing, but am a huge bathroom singer and love songs.
  2. I am a huge fan of Friends, seen each episode like million times, and still when I'm flipping through channels and I see Friends I watch the whole episode. I know everyone's lines. Can I BE more crazy (Chandler is my favorite) .
  3. I make really good fish curry (don't we mallus all do).
  4. I love learning languages. Can fluently speak Tamil, Malayalam, Hindi and English. Can understand Telgu and Gujrathi.
  5. I have been working since I was 16
  6. I love cars – In future I wanna own a Corvette.
  7. I make an extra effort to keep in touch with friends.
  8. I’m a bull headed taurean.
  9. I hate to shop - I know it is quiet shocking, but I can never spend time at a mall. I only go shopping when I need something. I go to the mall, get what I want, maximum 40 mins.
  10. Used to be a tomboy (I used to defeat guys in arm wrestling back when I used to be in school). Shed my tomboyishness after I started working (I dunno why)
  11. I don’t like the color pink and hate people associating girls with pink.
  12. I’m very aggressive, goes back to No. 8.
  13. I don’t have stage fright.
  14. I can not play any musical instrument. I always wanted to play the guitar. (Jithu are you planning on selling yours)
  15. The Shawshank Redemption is my favorite movie.
  16. Have a very short temper – I’m working on this.
  17. I’m a people pleaser.
  18. I can’t stand when girls use their girliness (cry, flutter eyelashes, smile ...and not restricted to only these) to get things done.
  19. I am very organized; my buddy list is organized as school, college, work, family in my Instant Messengers.
  20. I can not be mad at anyone for a long while.

Phew.. I'm done. But was a nice way to spend my Sunday afternoon self-reflecting.

A people pleaser with a short temper? One moment all sweetness and light, a moment later fire and brimstone? :)

Jithu said...

"I hate to shop"!!!

Thats quiet surprising. May b the first woman whom I have heard saying so!!!!

Ashish Waghray said...

well if u still exist the way u hav described urself, i guess u r still a tomboy (or a boy?)... infact u hav even outdone boys by being "organized"... well i hav finally come across a girl who does not want to be a "girl"... interesting!

Qatar Cat said...

LOL that's one nice list :) I was 20 tagged by J as well, and now taking my time reading what his friends wrote. I hate shopping and colour pink too, by the way.

=^..^=

I've never got hurt, but have hurt others ;) I like darker colors like Navy blue and all. But I do own clothing in pink.

$kickassso
Hey, adi kollum.

$mahout
Oh I shud have clarified. I never lose my temper with people other than family (dad, mom, chechi and my beloved shekar). I'm a people pleaser with rest of the world. I know it should be ulta.

$jithu
Come anytime, but if u bring ur guitar I'll make fish fry also.

$arun
Lot of them does, but they do not voice it.

$asish
Hey, I like being a girl, actually I love being a girl. Being a girl doesn't only mean shopping and watching guy meets girl movie. There is a lot more to that. Read my post "Why do we take so long" and then you will change ur mind.

$jaguu
Shekar told me couple of things that I missed like dislike/scared of cats. It was fun doing the tag. Plus all reader got an idea of who writes these posts. Thank You (see me being a people pleaser here..)

$virdi
Expected to see DDLJ. I like that movie too, but SSR is a great movie plus Morgan Freeman is my favorite actor.


$j'adore
Thank you, again like I said before I like darker shades. But not dark pink (does that exist).

$QC
Thank god, I'm not alone. Can't wait to read your list.

GRRR!
i hate that ....
are all women like that?
I know my sister is the same type! she virtually rules over me....but everyone else thinks she's an absolute angel.GRRRR! even more!

Thanu said...

$kickasso
I can not talk for all women. The reason for me to loose my temper with family is b/c I can and they will forgive me. But with others, you never know.

Jiby said...

thats an interesting 20 things you had to say about yourself...gotto apologize i dont know to make fish curry...blame that on an ex-roomie whose fish curry looked more like uncooked fish wading in a sea of chilli-powder, oil and water...i almost puked!since then i cudnt get myself to try cooking it... always ended up frying since then!!!

Thanu said...

$jiby
I used to get freaked out when had to make fish curry, but once u make it it is real easy. Vennagil para, recipe ayachu theram. IAS inte padutham thudagio?
