Back to LKG... Learning ABC in a new way

Normally, I am not very confident about doing the tags, after reading tags of so many good writers over here! This time, I made up my mind early...thanks to Smitha, who tagged me to do this! Now...

1. A – Available/Single?

Single? I don't remember....it was so long ago!


2. B – Best friend?

My husband (the fightings forgotten, when I feel like it!)


3. C – Cake or Pie?

Cakes...Christmas cakes with orange peels, cinnamon, nuts etc.!


4. D – Drink of choice?

Lemon juice with salt and sugar.


5. E – Essential item you use every day?

Cooker, as soon I open my eyes in the morning, Walking shoes. Now like most of the people in this blogsamaaj... laptop!


6. F – Favourite colour?

Green, khaki colour, beige...(colours?!)


7. G – Gummy Bears Or Worms?

What are these?!


8. H – Hometown?

Udupi, Karnataka.


9. I – Indulgence?

Huh, nowadays sitting in front of the computer ...you know why?!!


10. J – January or February?

January, February....no events to remember.


11. K – Kids & their names?

Two sons...I may have to give them new blog names!


12. L – Life is incomplete without?

My family, relatives and friends...now, new blog friends too!


13. M – Marriage date?

10th May, 1974!


14. N – Number of siblings?

Four - two brothers and 2 sisters!


15. O – Oranges or Apples?

Oranges


16. P – Phobias/Fears ?

Cockroaches...I admire small rats with long tails, lizards everything. But roaches...dirty things.


17. Q – Quote for today?

'Why does a woman work ten years to change a man's habits and then complain that he's not the man she married?!'


18. R – Reason to smile?

Today morning, I saw a small squirrel running away with a full slice of bread, I had thrown out because it had fallen on the floor! Really, the animals and birds always make me happy!


19. S – Season?

Yes, rainy season, like Saritha. Somehow, even now, I come out of the house and watch pouring rain! Going out in the rain is horrible in Chennai...every rainy season, the water stagnates on the roads, even for one hour downpour!


20. T – Tag three four People?

As far as I know, I might be the last one to do this tag!


21. U – Unknown fact about me?

Everyone, who knows me, know me in and out! Talkative, nowadays!


22. V – Vegetable you don’t like ?

I like almost all the vegetables!


23. W – Worst habit ?

Talk without thinking, is the worst habit...now, changing slowly, by keeping mum, most of the time! Esp. while in gatherings! Have learnt to just smile!


24. X – X-rays you’ve had ?

6-7 times through the years...not for serious ailments, till now, though.


25. Y – Your favourite food?

Idlies, khichdi, chapaathis...


26. Z – Zodiac sign?

Libra

destinationinfinity said...

I too like lizards, etc. but don't like cockroaches. I am actually afraid of them!!

Khakhi and beige? Rare taste :-) I too like oranges. I don't understand why I am starting to hate apples these days!

Destination Infinity

Sandhya said...

kanagu: Chennai in rainy season is famous now!

Destination Infinity: You must have seen apples covered with 'edible' wax, in TV. The wax was coming out in layers!

manju said...

Nicely done tag, Sandhya!

I liked your quote-"Why does a woman..." :)

(I tried to post yesterday, but could not. Blogger problems haven't resolved yet, I think!)

Sandhya said...

Saritha: Nothing is there to admire in cockroaches! Sometimes they fly near your face... yuck!

Your sister, libran? Nice!

Solilo: My favourite actress Rekha is a libran! And Amitabh too!

Indyeah: I love your posts as well as your comments, Indyeah!

I am changing slowly with all your encouragements, Indyeah!

BF has got two meanings?! Both are apt, here!

You must have noticed, my comments too are long...in your posts too! And two to three, per post! Talk, talk, talk!

I know my drawbacks well and some of the plus points too, Indyeah!

I hate mosquitoes...I pour kerosine in all the drains everyday,like a ritual. Hit them with a 'hunter' bat (mosquito hitting bat) every night before sleep (I am the Sachin of our house!). Talk of hating insects...!

Manju: Thank you, Manju! I face that problem too. I mentioned about it in your blog too! Sometimes, I write and wait for the comments to go through. If I get up from here, I forget to check again and the comments are gone.

R. Ramesh said...

hey very interesting yar..when i reached the end, i laughed out wondering which south indian can say no to idlis...steam hot idlis..bah..how i wish i could now go from office and have it..there was a tirunelveli hotel in triplicane..v used to buy idlis mostly to taste those chutnies..haha and a bucketful sambar...

Sandhya said...

Ramesh: Idly saambaar reminds my husband of 'Rathna Cafe', which was in Pondy Bazaar, long back. Now duplicates have come everywhere. He praises about their saambaar so much that my son recites the lines, as soon as his father starts..Idly saambaarna Rathna cafe...'!

Aparna said...

Good of you to do the tag.
I really do not know what to say so I runaway from tags.

I hate cockroaches and lizards with equal passion. ( actually scared would be more like it) and idlis are my hot favourite. Wish we had a Rathna cafe (or its duplicate version) close to my home.

Sandhya said...

Aparna: I think this is second or third tag I am doing, boldly. Otherwise, I feel inadequate to write interestingly in tags.

Yes, good idly saambaar is devine!

kavita said...

SANDHYA...sorry about it...i am out of bloggers for few days(a week or so) because of some very important personal matter which needs my full attention right now....don't worry i will be back very soon....thanks for remembering me...i miss you too...love you...with my best regards
Kavita.

Sandhya said...

Take care, Kavita!

R. Ramesh said...

haha..ratna cafe in triplicane has been there for years yar..ask yr hubby to try there...hey dont remind a starving man of idlis and dosas yaar..have a heart..or at least invite me and prepare some steam hot idlis when i come to chennai next time.promise?

Sandhya said...

Ramesh: Sure, Idly, chutney and saambaar - definitely!

Deeps said...
