10 Things You Really Don’t Need To Know About Me

Saw this tag at Cookie Crumbs Inc. way back in April and ever since, the thought of taking it up stuck with me. So here goes:

~ I obsessively need a fan when I sleep. I need that feeling of moving air, however low the speed of the fan maybe, when I sleep. Else I feel like suffocating. Yes, even during winters. ~

~ Often, I find me talking to myself about what to do next and how to do it. All the planning happens as a monologue and this is a Shaadi ke side effect for me. Not to mention, before marriage I led a very lazy life which needed minimal planning. ~

~ I want to love cooking. Yes, you read it right. Having seen mom cook with so much passion and dish out delicacies that make heaven on earth possible, I want to love cooking. But the interest comes only once a while and doesn’t last long. I try a new item now and then which is simple enough to keep me involved, but that’s about it. ~

~ I cannot let bad photos be, not even for the sake of a laugh. Let alone bad photos, if it doesn’t qualify as a good profile pic or a great click, trash is the place. Many normal pics have been dumped unceremoniously. ~

~ I can only sing along with songs. Not alone. If you insist, I suggest you cover your ears. ~

~ I can’t dance for the life of me. No, not even one move. Tried once and embarrassed the hell out of myself. Never again. ~

~ I am as clumsy as they come and hence will constantly subject myself to spills, falls, cuts, burns and bruises. Stains, scars and healing wounds are a way of life to me. ~

~ I hate Maths with a vengeance. Always have and always will. I figured a pocket calculator can do the job since I take a few minutes to figure out simple calculations like the proportions of rice and water while cooking. Most times, I yell 1.75 times 2.5 from the kitchen and my husband yells back the answer from the living room. (He plays many such roles – a calculator, google, online ticket booking agent, financial advisor etc.) ~

~ I hoard artificial jewelry endlessly. Strictly street shopping stuff. ~

~ I have never been out of my country and never really bothered about it too. I will go when I want. I don’t do obsession on this one like many others who seem to deem at least 1 foreign trip as a lifetime goal. ~

Until later 🙂

    I think you have warned about the cooking skills though. And you still haven’t invited us to check them. 😛

    Interesting set of things about yourself. I think I should also write, but I have a feeling that the response would be “Duh, we know”!

      There are always new things to know about people, so I would suggest you to take this up!

    Ohkay….im not sucking up here, why would i, ur not my boss 😉 but every single item on that list made me go…Mee tooooooooooo!!! Seriously.

      Glad that you could relate Mamta!

    Haha as soon as I read Point #1 I couldn’t help but smile. That is so ME, much to the annoyance of my husband. I also need blankets irrespective of the weather situation outside. My husband always complains about it in the winters. Why do you need a fan/ac during winter and if you are feeling so warm, why the hell do you need a blanket? 😛

    • Bogglehead

      Ha ha, we have our quirks right? In my case, my husband’s the blanket person and me the fan person. Guess you got both in ya 🙂

    This list is 50% me an 50% not me 😛 I do understand what you mean by the fan thingy.
