Tagged "Me"




I have been TAGGED. This is the first time that I have been tagged and I am elated (Don't judge that by my pic: That is indeed my "Elated" look) about it.



Thanks to Tairebabs

These are the rules:

1. Link the person(s) who tagged you…Tairebabs

2. Mention the rules on your blog

3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours...

4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them…

5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged...


Of my "Quirks"

  1. Of Jeans and T shirts: I am most comfortable in Jeans and T shirts. That’s what I wear for work everyday. Formals make me drowsy and sluggish.... I also need my sports shoes with this.
  2. Of "Bed Tea" and my "Chai": I love my bed tea....I can't really start my day without my cup of tea. And when I say tea...it has to be made the way "punjabi's" make their tea...It's essentially chai....it should have "cardamom" and sometimes I like it to have "ginger" too .....I hate tea with powdered milk and tea bags.....Most of the offices have the vending machines for such tea...I can never have that kindda tea....
  3. Of Q-Tips: I am gonna take this one from Tairebabs.... because I suffer from the same....My ENT doc has told me not to use it, like I do.... but I guess I am just addicted....
  4. Of my Photographs and Videos: OK when I say my photos, I really don't mean they all are mine (nature, friends, roads, pubs, college, school, graduation day, new jeans, birthday cakes, trips.....). Well I have a collection of Photos and Videos which I have collected over many years and I keep on clicking and adding stuff to it almost daily. This stuff is very personal and I browse through it almost daily. I keep three different back ups for it. Once I lost a bunch of my photographs because of a hard disk crash, I was really pissed. I almost wanted to smash my computer.
  5. Of my time alone, hills and movies: Sometimes I get really sick and tired of the city life; then I just pack my bag and leave for the Hills. I don't need company for going to the hills. I have traveled alone a lot and I love it; because you are really not confined by anything. I like that feeling of doing "nothing"....unfortunately because of my job I really can't do that much.... but I still take out time to be alone…. I just switch off that damn cellphone. I also go to movies alone, but that’s also because I love movies more than anything in the world. I love going to Film festivals and watching any/every kindda movie. I have watched foreign language movies even without subtitles. I feel that there is something magical about celluloid!!
  6. Of mixing drinks and parties: I love to play the host, even if it’s not my party. My close friends like it. But others hate it…..I don’t blame them. I love to mix drinks for everyone. I love to try/mix different kindda liqueurs, spirits, wines etc….I have my secret recipes…. I do drink a lot, but I also have this irrepressible desire to make drinks for people (and of course be appreciated). I kindda extract a creepy pleasure when I mix drinks for people who don’t drink alcohol (smartly altering their Mocktails into cocktails). As a matter of fact, some of them really liked my cocktails and started drinking them regularly.

What does that tell of me…..I don’t know…..?

Now I need to TAG six more bloggers by linking them, now some of them might have been tagged previously, but I guess I need to follow the rules:

ranjana said...

INTERESTING QUIRKS......now what does all this stuff tell abt u......thank god someone is normal....hahahahahah i mean to begin with i don;t know which moron invented formal dressing and why it is so essential all over the world...formals are not even comfortable...b it rousers shirts and stupid leather shoes or ask me...i have to wear saree for work....trust me it is the most uncomfy dress in the world...i think jeans n t-shirt should b here on made the national dress....

secondly A TEA cannot be qualified to b called as tea without the eseential milk n masala....i dont understand the concept of tea bags n black tea.

thirdly being alone is cool n relaxing being lonely is not...i lile to go n watch by myself...largely coz i m too stubborn to alter my plans for anyone and hate to share my popcprns.....heheheh

fourthly u r definitely the ebst host i have known......i dont think anyone can do a better balancing act....n man oh man i love the drinks u make :)
so all in all kudos to you man

Akshay said...

Thanks Ranju!! meri bahut taareef ho gayi ab to....when are you posting stuff on your blog!!

againstthegrain said...

I agree with the jeans thing, though I like wife beater tank tops. Im not much of a t-shirt fan. Though a pair of sweats and a beater is JUST so comfy.

I went through a phaze of tea last year in res. I think cause my roomates drank a lot of tea, they got me into the habit. One in the morning, one in the afternoon and a couple , in addition to coffee, at night where we got our study on..kind of.

q-tips. I hate things going in my ear, i feel like they'll get stuck and never come out, not to mention horror stories I've heard!!

Photography. I miss it. Im just not as motivated anymore : ( so I envy your passion for it. I like taking pictures of me and my friends, but my art passion needs to be rekindled. So props to you for having that passion.

Mmm and mixing drinks! Go you. I get too lazy and just make up random shiz, or use the easy stuff, vodka and cranberry all the way.

Debbie Shiamay said...

Mishra said...

Well I think I am brothers with your as far as that bed tea is concerned ( but alas this has not happened since the last 13 odd years- been sometime when I stayed with my parents for a stretch of time ). You do give a "feel good" effect from posts of yours. Keep up the good work Sir

Akshay said...

Gonecase said...

I keep three different back ups for it. Once I lost a bunch of my photographs because of a hard disk crash, I was really pissed. I almost wanted to smash my computer........

I agree and understand...I lost almost 40 GBs of english videos I collected over few years and had to start from all over again...grrrr !!!

Akshay said...

Gonecase bhai, I'l hate to lose any kind of data ever!!

"I kindda extract a creepy pleasure when I mix drinks for people who don’t drink alcohol (smartly altering their Mocktails into cocktails)."

Akshay said...

Akshay said...

Chriz...I tagged his dad too.... did you finally get a massage in China or anywhere else....lol

Akshay said...

Macadamia The Nut : I guess I just like to convert people on my side of activity....my theory is that you shud try it once... if you don't like it...forget it....but if you like it...indulge...haan lekin you shud follow the drinking rules too....

wch side are you on...do you drink...
