Chuck Norris can divide by zero!

Thanks E-I-S-I and Avdi for tagging me! The title is just something random, in the spirit of the tag !!!

Rules:Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.

1. If a butterfly flaps it's wings in any corner of the universe, I gain weight.

2. I used to be an adventure sports gal - bungee jumping, para sailing, even swam across the river sharavati once and sky diving was next, until I got onto a freaky ride in a small park in Bath, ended up puking my guts out and they never went back in. The rides at Disney are all I can manage now.

3. I get extremely competitive when playing games

4. I'm a food voyeur. People who have those amazing food blogs, yes, I'm that lurker ....

5. I want to learn to play the piano and then the veena or sitar.

6. Procrastination is my middle name, I've had access to a piano for about a year now ......

7. I'm pretty unartistic - my stained glass instructor had to gulp before he complimented my work.

8. I found recently that not all young adult fantasy fiction can be enjoyed by adults too. Twilight is rubbish.

9. I love buying makeup, when I was single this was where all my money went

10. I can get drunk on a glass of beer

11. I dont forget faces, names yes ....

12. I'm bad at languages ... the ostensible reason is because I had a traumatic incident in high school involving my language teacher, her knuckles, my head ....

13. I get loud when I'm excited or angry.

14. I'm short tempered, but once I've had my say I forgive very easily too and dont harbour grudges

15. I love fashion and designerwear although I'm a huge cheapskate. If it wasnt for B, I would still be ogling the things I lusted after on the internet while convincing myself that I couldnt afford them.

16. I love to get flowers, even if there's no occasion ....

17. I recently developed the biggest obssesion for high heels, my fav pair are animal print slingbacks with 3" heels. Loooove them!!!

18. Yes, yes, yes, I'm obssessed with shoes.

19. I'm always being mistaken for Mexican, I've lost count the number of times random strangers have come upto me and started jabbering away. Even Indians think so sometimes. I've often thought I should just learn Spanish so I can lead an exciting double life. But,but, but .... see point 12.

20. My favorite color changes every year, generally I wont have a clue what it is until I look into my wardrobe and suddenly find every article of clothing in shades of a single color. Currently it's brown.

21. I cry for most movies, but I was dry eyed during Titanic. I hate that movie.

22. I crack up over Chuck Norris jokes ... here's another 'Chuck Norris doesn't read books. He stares them down until he gets the information he wants.'

23. I'm a cat person

24. I love painted toenails .... looking at this list I think I might have a foot fetish.

25. My name is short, and I was thankful for that fact when I moved abroad since (I thought) it would be easy for people to pronounce/ remember/ understand etc. And then I got called Bryan.

I think most people I know have already been tagged so I wont tag anyone but feel free to do this if you want to. Coming up with 25 random things is pretty tough, btw!!

Smita said...

It was fun reading this because besides the fact that you love reading n cooking i knew very less about you. Btw lol @ forgiving after having your way :D btw even am pathetic at learning languages, sigh!

Bouncing-Bubble said...

envy u for point no.2.... I too love painted toenails...but not fingernails.. lol @ Bryan...u cn imagine how mine gets twisted :)

eye-in-sty-in said...

lol @ stained glass! u reminded me why I'm bad at drawing :D

btw, hi Bryan ... (Bryan??? did that happen!)

The small ride did u in? It was that bad and scary, eh? The good thing abt sky diving is that u only have to go in 1 direction... DOWN! no jostling about like in theme park rides!

Ha ha ha @ Disney rides (am laughing only coz ur competitive :D)

U didnt like Twilight? I liked it.... Bella was a delightful treat to watch as were the 'others'!! The red-haired one was my fav though :D

A cat loving cheapskate shopper with a foot fetish! Ur hubby surely is a lucky man! ;-)

Thanks for the promptness in completing the tag!

samir said...

LOL @ Bryan, I just let them call me Sam.
At least you can manage the rides @ Disney, nowadays can't manage even those.
I have also been mistaken for a Mexican, although not frequently; and my language learning skills are not good either.

couchpapaya said...

kaylee - welcome to the blog and thanks for leaving such a lovely comment .... will see u around then :)

smita - that's y i like reading these tags too :) good to know so many are pathetic at languages. all the people i know in person seem to pick up langauges just by listening to them. ... sigh!

bubbles - i hate painted fingernails too !!! lol for ur name, i can just imagine u correcting ppl each time brrr...

couchpapaya said...

EISI - the ride was small, the park was small, the ride was EVIL! anyways, have got used to the fact that i'm a wuss wrt the adrenalin stuff, nowadays i try to challenge myself little bits at a time so that i can get back to my daredevil younger days. we'll see .... as for the name, i gave my name at a restaurant and finally we were never seated because apparently the waitress called out bryan about 6 times and no one in the group responded :S and twilight, a post will follow .... i read the book so dont know, who's the red-head now ???

samir - lol atleast sam is close !! do complete ur tag soon too ......

eye-in-sty-in said...

ok... 2 questions on twilight - did u also watch the movie? if I like reading the HP books, will I aalso like twilight (is the writing similar?)

avdi said...

Oh.. some of these are mine too .. dang .. they should have 50 thing about me

byran.. sounds are similar eh.

In my case its ulta. I have a firang name and have to put up with Asha, Abha and all that. But if were to go to US or something I would be called aevaa, whereas here my name is pronounced AAva = a ko aa ki matra.


me too for painted toenails and clear fingernails, and toenails.

avdi said...

EISI - your summing up is really good. I guess I should read your list and sum you up too .. ;)

eye-in-sty-in said...
