Tagged by Oliver

So. I have been tagged by Oliver(No-the one without the twist).And I will have to answer these questions. Here I will pretend that I am extremely bored and bothered for having to do something so utterly monotonous. When the truth is, i am jobless and am happy and excited to be tagged at all. So there. I start with a confession.

1. Pick out a scar you have, and explain how you got it:

Faint traces of burn marks on the fingers of my right hand. Was in class 9. The day of Diwali. Was making rangmashaals on the terrace. Very badly burnt my hand trying to test a concoction of various powdered chemicals. Was a painful experience to say the least.

P.S. But by the time this (accident) happened I had finished making all the Tubris and Rangmashaals and very heroically lit all the fireworks that I would (had this not happened, that is) ; only this time with my left hand.

2. What is on the walls in your room?

Very boring yellow walls (the colour of the cow's teeth in the Orbit White ad to be precise). 'Wall contents' undergo changes that have nothing to do with the seasonal changes, in general. Currently I have sheets of paper pasted on the wall next to my bed with trigonometric formulaes related to multiple and submultiple angles written. I am supposed to know all of these from Class 12. But then a lot of things never turn out to be like they should. I also have sheets of paper to write down names of random songs, books, quotes, thoughts. Alternatively, I utilize all the glass surfaces on the pictures, my bookshelf,etc to write stuff. The ideas thus written appear to float in the middle of nowhere. Like they should.

3. What does your phone look like?

Like a double horned rhino if you look at it from the left. And a cock-eyed spaniel from the right. Well. Mostly.

4. What music do you listen to?

Jazz. And really old school Blues. Rabindrasangeet. Indian Classical. Norah Jones. I love her.

5. What is your current desktop picture?

A Norah Jones' poster I edited myself. Now here's a secret. My desktop pictures are always Norah Jones' pictures.

6. What do you want more than anything right now?

A Steinway Limited edition Grand Piano. Precisely this.

7. Do you believe in gay marriage?

You mean gay/'happy' marriages? No. I don't.

8. What time were you born?

I was never born. I am. I was. I will be.

9. Are your parents still together?

YES! What was the key word in the question again? Still?

10. What are you listening to?

My sound card driver conked off. I am listening to myself sing, thus. And shuddering. But wait. You just might wish to know what is it that I am singing and subsequently listening to(and sub subsequently shuddering at). It's a song by Ella Fitzgerald.

12. The last person to make you cry?

What's next?

13. What is your favourite perfume/cologne?

Cool Water. Davidoff. The Smell of wet soil. Before it rains.

14. What kind of hair/eye colour do you like on the opposite sex?

Duh! As if...

15. Do you like pain killers?

No. Why would anyone want to kill pain. Or kill anything for that matter? Just Be!

16. Are you too shy to ask someone out?

No. I am not.

17. Fave pizza topping?

Extra cheese. And salami. And chilly flakes.

18. If you could eat anything right now, what would it be?

Baked fish. From Amber.

19. Who was the last person you made mad?

My mom. Don't ask how. You already know. They are ever so willing to get mad at you.

20. Is anyone in love with you?

No one I know.

No wait I think this will speak very poorly of me as a person. And make me look like a love lorn loser. So I think I'd better say something like...Well there are a handful. But I couldn't care two boots.

Does that sound better? Yes. Definitely!

HA! I am done. My turn. I tag Shonai, KoYell (I think you are through with your papers,no?), Subhayu (jobless as ever), Dhruva and Tania. Yay!
