The idea was:
“The instructions say that each player starts with some random facts/habits about himself/herself. As you are tagged you need to post the rules and your responses on your own blog. At the end of your post, you need to choose some people to tag, list their names and, of course, leave them a comment, telling they have been tagged and they need to read your blog for more information.”
I’m poor at tagging. So here are my A to Zs. Feel free to make your own. And let me know so that I can read yours too:
A: Aspiring writer. Since I’m not one, I blog instead.
B: Bookworm, hardcore. I get anxiety attacks if I dont read something – anything – everyday.
C: Choose to be a free spirit. Also sometimes choose to be in high spirits but I digress.
D: Dog-lover. My labrador, Winkie will testify for this.
E: Extremely impulsive. Seizing the day is my kinda thing. By the way, I have all seven days on sale now, if anyone’s interested. (E also for extremely stupid jokes that I crack once in a while)
F: Funny people, I like. Very much.
G: Gregarious. Learnt this word in college when a pal said I was one.
H: Hate Horror movies. Cant stand them. End up getting a near-heart attack if I try so much as to watch one. (Been scarred for life since The Exorcist decades back)
I: I, I, I. Its usually always about me. My blog, I mean. I’m much more considerate in person.
J: June-baby. Love this month cause my birthday falls on the longest day of the solstice.
K: Kill Bill, Vol 1. Never watched a movie quite like it. Used to own a copy… which reminds me, whoever ‘borrowed’ it – its now labelled as ’stolen’. Beware.
L: Like living life as I want. Feel happy to be alive.
M: Muchos gracias – one of the few Spanish words I know. Or wait, is it Mexican? I wish I knew both. Ole!
N: Never say never. I’m serious – I’ll fine you 10 bucks if you say this word in front of me.
O: Oh my God! My favourite dialogue from F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
P: Pablo Neruda. For the poem ~ I do not love you as if you were salt rose or topaz ~
Q: Quimbey for Mayor. If you were running for mayor, he’d vote for you.
R: Rinchen. Ok, so I like my name. Means ‘Precious Jewel’ ~ Ahem ~
S: Seems just like yesterday I was just born… I’m nearing my 30’s now… (Nostalgic but N was already gone)
T: Try to be original. Fail. Then copy and hope no one else notices. Also, Thank You – a word I say 10 times in a day since I was brought up by polite people who taught me to say so.
U: Uninhibited and will try anything twice. Doesnt anyone listen to whats Bryan Adams’ been singing for so long?
V: Venus, my home planet. As well as the bright shining star I remember seeing for the first time I looked up at the sky at night.
W: Wicked. Pronounced as WICK-ed. Name we thought of for our non-existent candle making business. Neat, huh?
X: X – the symbol of all wrongs that I give zero marks for when I correct test papers. (Am a teacher, btw)
Y: Yet to win a Pulitzer, Booker or even a National Award. Moral of the story: Think BIG.
Z: Zzzz…. wake up! You’ve reached the end of the list. Now go home.
