my secret seven..

Hmmm...Seven Random Things...let's see if any of them turn out to be weird...

1) i'm a transparent person. If i'm happy, sad or mad, everybody gets to know it, ...that is why i love blogging, it allows me to connect with people i really like and i can make faces at people i don't.

2) i'm a lousy driver along with equally lousy navigational skills. After three 'crash' courses, I've stopped trying to drive, in consideration of my women friends who ARE excellent drivers, and my fear that i may kill someone!!!!...my husband and kids refuse to sit with me if i'm behind the wheel, because it takes me five minutes to move an inch... and then we gallop the next few metres...but it's on my to-learn list....

3) I think a lot, in fact continuously... there are times when you could catch me smiling or frowning...I guess it is weird esp. if i do it in public.

4)i have a tendency to forget. There have been cases of burnt food, lost mobiles, thankfully NEVER lost kids... You could call it selective amnesia because surprisingly i do remember what is worth forgetting :(...(Read thisfor more)

5) i am a sucker for sob stories. Books, movies, my kids, husband - they all make me cry...for different reasons. The amount i cry, i could do something about the depleting water resources :)

6) I'm not a possessive mother, hard to be when you have two boys...but when my boys sleep, i like to keep my hand over them to feel the rhythm of their breathing. It reassures me and makes me thankful to the one above. Is that weird? i hope not...

7) I generally keep a cloth near me to wipe off those dust particles which i happen to see everywhere. I used to be quite obsessed with the word 'clean' earlier but age and growing boys have changed me...i've found the solution - just close your eyes.

8) i'm technologically challenged...my son handles my mobile better than me. i handle it like it's a grenade. it has gone all over the place without me. This post took me less than 10 minutes but an hour to fit in the links. Another example is the look of my blog...it needs a change and that is proving to be a daunting task for its owner...

...and that turned out to be the enlightening eight!

And so i tag

Thinking aloud said...

@c unlimited..

@ talk to the hand...

@annieelf...

UL said...

You did superb Suma, I was cracking up and nodding my head most of the time when it came to your 'absentmindedness' post! I have done almost everything except perhaps getting into the wrong vehicle- that was hilarious, thank you. Luckily for me my husband DOESNOT forget - if it weren't for him, I would be lost forever. And I loved your seventh entry, I was gonna add that one to my list, in fact that's the first thing that came to my mind as I got the meme, but after plowing my way into the third I was scratching my head and heading in another direction (completely forgot about it until I saw yours!!). Oh yeah, I am a clean freak too! More a surface cleaner these days, but what I see must be clean no matter what! It was fun getting to know you. Thank you.

Aarthi said...

OMG...I tagged you few days ago..sumthng similar to this one..anyways its up to u to decide.

Weird things about u were really interesting to read..coz they were directly from ur heart...as transparent as u hav mentioned..:)

Rambler said...

Hey thanks for tagging.. Will surely do this and let you know.

btw just wondering what I would do if my mom feel me breathing :)

Being transparent is a great gift :)

AnnieElf said...

Hi Suma. I posted. It's what I call "an old chestnut" but was posted long enough ago that new reader likely have not see it. Thanks again for the tag.

Joy said...

You seem to be as wonderful as your writings.

And yes, I did it. As in I completed the tag :)

Thinking aloud said...

@ UL...
hey thanks, you were right, it was fun doing it...:)

and i'm sure everyone does some weird things now and then but we are the brave ones to admit it...:)

@ aarthi...
I didn't see it teh last time i was at ur site...will check again...
and thank you...that's the only way i know how to speak...:)

@ rambler..
ahh rambler, but then you are not a mother...and my boys are still at the age when i can cuddle them and if you knew that one of them had given us a very nasty scare, you would definitely understand...

and so hug her back...:)

@ annieelf..
okay, will check...thanks for doing it...

@ joy...
Yay...i'm coming right over to chk it out! :)

Raghu said...

1) Now I know why you make faces at me! ;-)

2) People dont like to sit next to me when I drive too! Because I can hit the other side of speed limits when I am in the 'mood'.

3) Take a break! Lest you burst out! :P

4) Ability to forget is a blessing! How I wish I could forget a few things in my life!

5) Can you help with the water problem in my house?

6) Heck not! My mom still does that ... and I love to sleep feeling her tap me.

7) oh.. cleanliness! We have a kurukshetra war most of the times because of that at home! Dont know what this afinity is between women and cleanliness!

8) so ur hate list now includes technology along with physics! :)

Thinking aloud said...

@ raghu...
hey guy, cleanliness is next to godliness, so take my advice and make peace with the wifey on this...:)

and anything which does not make sense to me is on my hatelist...

Raghu said...

ok .. finally ... you did succeed in making me confess my scary seven!

Tys on Ice said...

:) .... u r so normal...and a woman to top that...love it.

Tys on Ice said...

was that sexist? it sounded so damn sexist, but not meant to be...it is a compliment

Thinking aloud said...

@ raghu...
thanks...:)

@ Tys...
hey, i wouldn't take it any other way...keep those compliments coming...:))
