*NEW* Recent blog entries

February 8, 2010


Oh well. I had some stuff I wanted to write about but then this turned out to be a much quicker post. Thanks to Chandni for giving me this award. Big truth: I am very self-conscious about accepting blog awards, especially tags. First self-conscious bit is the award and second would be the answering the tag thing that makes me either avoid acceptance or procrastinate the writing!

I think I'm honest most of the times, and more than honest at most other times. *evil grin* So according to "rules", here are 10 more honest things...though how relevant to anyone/anything, I take no responsibility for!!

1. I cannot understand when people (on Facebook) tag me on notes when they haven't said hello for ages. I always remove the tag.

2. Sometimes I think I'm too low maintenance. :/ Like my comfort food is khichuri (for crying out loud) and most animation movies make me really happy.

3. I am never happy with the bras I buy. Never. And now that I officially have udders, it's getting even tougher.

4. Though I have a baby bump, I have to confess that my doctor said, ''A lot of your bump is in fact belly,'' which kind of had me a bit glum. :/ But then rather a doc who's easy to talk to then overly bloody maternal.

5. I am scared of driving cars and can't believe I am being forced to er, learn. However, before you laugh, I have no fears about hopping on a motorcycle and riding around. Parents and Partner have forbidden it.
(And I thought I'd get to make my own decisions once I was 30)

6. I secretly (well not anymore) fear that someday I will stop being attractive for Partner. (However if any woman EVER thinks of using my sometimes low self-confidence as a weakness and tries any moves-shoves on my territory, oh boy, she better be bloody prepared for my real nastiness. Evil laugh)

7. Yet I find it very tough to use the above as enough motivation to really exercise. I mean what's the point if affection is only physical eh? Bring on the chocolates.

8. I am always a bit apprehensive discussing what's bothering me with people -- even really close ones -- because I can't stand the expectation that I am expected to follow their advice!
(I mean it's fair though, I make them listen for hours and then get pissed off when they give me all-knowing advice.)

9. I am very jealous of women who can sing (they always behave like divas) and women who say they "play a lot of sport". I can do neither...though I am darned good at some video games. I demand video games be declared sport.
(Er, if you sing or play sport, it totally does not mean you, thik-hai?)

10. I SUCK at shooting games/war games, especially on the Xbox. I always get my head blown up in 2 seconds (usually Partner) and completely hate it. I am VERY competitive in video games... I also insist that all double/multiplayer video games should ALWAYS have a default female character. WHY should I play Modern Warcraft 2 when I always have to be a man?

I pass this on to:
Silvara (who is very honest about (failure) with weight loss attempts)
Goofy Mumma (who writes so sweetly about shifting to a new country)
Pirate of the Arabian (who writes one bloody post a year, should bloody well be writing more)
DewDropDream (who I have not seen in aaaaaages)
Sree (who is so honest...it hurts. And I wish it would stop hurting)

Don't like driving a car(read not allowed to because I havnt gotten around to getting the license )and cant sing either.

And dare I ask the owner of the belly (baby bump:) how many weeks/months to go?

Other than that, Khichuri ??? Really????

I love riding two wheelers, though I can only manage ones without gears, and I have a mortifying fear of driving myself!!

You have linked to the place where I have done this tag, but may just do it again, since I have been tagged twice, and these ones are fun!! :)

Eve* aka JB said...

@ MRC: Still a fairly long wait. And yeah, khichuri. :D

@ Goofy: Ah, sorry, you did change your blog url...

@ Sree: already answered! As for all said million times before, honesty even when repeated is still honest. haha. :D The tag did not say "new" honest things...

Passionate Goof said...

You have linked to my current blog, and also the particular post where I have done this tag... go see. ;)

chandni said...

DewdropDream said...

JB!!! That's an honour indeed, coming from you :) Thank you!!

How're you keeping?

I'm scared of driving too. Used to be and still am a huge sucker for bikes. Owned a Yamaha back in college and I love it to death. Awesomely roomy and good for road trips and gets impressive mileage on long clear roads!

I get jealous when my good friend who's also a pianist plays for people with terrific voices. I have an okay voice. Probably not one suitable for singing a strong solo in front of hundreds of people - and certainly not suitable with my nerves. To this day, the song Bette Midler's "The Rose" makes me cringe.
