Interesting things about me? Let’s see…

AAAAARGH! I’VE BEEN TAGGED! Is this where I scream and start spilling all my beans (among other things)?
Okay, 3inOne tagged me yesterday on this ‘Ten Interesting Things About Me’ thingy … so, she’s responsible for the following utterly boring (and occasionally disgusting) Jimmy facts that I am going to impose upon you. Tee!

Fact # 1: It, invariably, rains whenever I forget to take my raincoat along. So I occasionally leave it behind so the poor farmers of Karnataka could get some water to feed their crops.
Generally gets me a good feeling – and a very soggy underwear. Maybe I’m that raingod from HHGTTG.

Fact # 2: Always remember that I forgot to double-check the lock about halfway down the road to my office. And, as one thing leads to the other, always get that stare from the boss for coming in an hour late.

Fact # 3: I like rain falling on my head, but I hate it getting into my pants. And slush … I’d like an hour in a hospital waiting-room better than two minutes through slush!

Fact # 4: Abhor fake accents. If Smita Jha down the road comes to me speaking in an Angelina Jolie kinda way, Smita Jha is most likely to have my puke on her. I believe in being pretentious too (ask Rama), but it has to be done my way. Hah!

Fact # 5: I save all my pennies to make a pound, which I then go and spend on a white elephant. Don’t believe it? Ask my hair dryer, my worldspace receiver and my fifteen mini-cassette players – which are all lying jobless in dusty cardboard boxes up my attic.

Fact # 6: Sometimes – after having said nothing in my defence during a roadside squabble, I lie in bed and curse myself for not having opened my mouth when I should have. And sometimes – as I see a big thug of a guy charge towards me with a bellow on his lips, I stand expressionless and curse myself for having opened my mouth when I shouldn’t have.

Fact # 7: I believe in heaven. Because I can’t, for the life in me, imagine that my friend, who passed away last week, has become nothingness.

Fact # 8: I believe in watching Lolita before reading Lolita. Don’t ask why – can’t think of a reason 🙂

Fact # 9: Nostalgia, according to me, is the best emotion known to man. Just that right tinge of the sweet, just that right tinge of the sour…
Just right!

Fact # 10: Don’t believe in taking shorter routes anymore. Prefer the railway overbridge overhead to the railway track right up in front.
Learnt this one the hard way 😉

P.S.: Maybe the hiatus ain’t gonna happen after all. Sorry, Senthu! And Rama… here’s some more pretentious stuff for you to feed on. Heh!

  9. @ Rama: Yea man, one boring person I am – for sure 😉
    And that penny and pound reference was supposed to have gone with the ‘penny wise and pound foolish’ adage. Tried with with paise and rupees but it just didn’t sound right.
    Anyway, glad I could provide you with a lot of me to chew on. We aim to please.. Har de har har!

    @ 3inOne: (Sheepish grin) You’re right… Disgusting is my middle name, nobody responsible for that. Except, mebbe Rama 😉

    @ Mac: Ha ha! But you’re wrong… I double checked the lock that day to make sure that you couldn’t get out. ha! And yeah, my pooor bicycle! Feel like bawling now…

  13. @ Mac: Yeah, very conveniently forgot to do that 😉

    @ Me: Ha, thanks!

  14. these just seem like independent, standalone 10 things… dey dont seem to need an adjective;-)
