Me too is 'Tagged'

Swati has tagged me to say seven things that people don't know about me. I've seen this tag doing the rounds in blogosphere and here I am doing it now... So please fasten your seat belt, here I go...

1. I can't drive (LOL - and I told you all to fasten your seat belt!). I'm terrified of traffic, cows, dogs and even the crows on the road! I've never even been on a bicycle *HIDING MY FACE IN SHAME*

OK, now that I've said this, it is easy to say the rest.

2. I haven't seen snowfall yet :( ... or for that matter never experienced single digit temperatures

3. I am absent minded. Once, when the family sat down for dinner I realised that I had cooked everything but rice! More recently I was frantically looking for my phone and went back to the rest room, cafeteria and rummaged through my desk for a good 15 mins when I figured out that I was talking on the phone all the while! I hope you'll still read me and be my friends.

4. I guess I'm not a movie buff - If I count all the movies I've watched till date, I'm sure it would be less than 100.

5. The one thing I really feel bad about is the fact that I can't sing! Not that I'm good at everything else, but I don't feel so bad about it. A few maamis tried but gave up eventually. I have absolutely no sense of sound :(

6. My childhood ambition was to become an underworld don. Well, I have a few months of Karate and and rifle shooting under my belt...

7. I cried when Dumbledore died.

And now its your turn ladies... I tag Lavanya, Jayashree, Apu and TPL

Heh heh heh. I refused to believe that you sang as badly as that...until you opened your mouth, and I had to close my ears :)

Don Uma

Nice list.

For #1, other than driving, me too !!

And am thrilled that there's someone else who has searched high and low for their mobile while talking on it !!

Lavanya Sriram said...

LOL :)
A nice and humor filled list !
You are not alone i searching for yr mobile ! I had it in my hand all the while i was searching for it, not talking though !

4 & 5 - Ditto, though no one dared to take the risk of teaching me :)

A don who cries?! :)

You should put up Pattu's list also :)

Hema said...

Hey, I do remember your attempts at learning to ride a scooty...and to experience single digit weather plan a holiday to where I live :-). Would love to have you, pattu and SK here.

Jayashree said...

No.3 is so me, Uma.....you won't believe the number of times I've forgotten to make rice.

Momo's Ma said...

Jayashree said...

Uma said...

Apu - aarrgh.. rubbing salt into the wound ...

rrmom, PV, TPL, Momo's Ma - yeah, a don - I liked all the mystery and secrecy, the codes and passwords ... :)

Jayashree, Lavanya, PV - I'm glad I have company!

Hema - Yes I tried...and I can ride as well... just that the road has to be cleared.. ha ha! And as for the vacation - let me make some money to buy tickets... that'll be my first destination...

TPL - Pattu's list is a good idea ... let me try...
And the Don who cries reminds me of the SRK - Suchitra Krishnamoorthy movie... forgot the name
