18 Facts Tag

Anjali had tagged me long time back. But due to various other engagements, I was not able to do this. There is one more pending, but that is slightly more difficult and time consuming; so took this one. I will be back to active blogging in a couple of months (as soon as I finish my other writing assignments).

My first book for this year—ERP Demystified (Second Edition)—was released a few weeks back. The next one will be out in a week or two. One more book to go. The companion web sites and supplementary materials like study guides, presentations, and instructor manuals for these books also have to be developed. So working very hard…

Now the facts:

1. Pick out a scar you have, and explain how you got it.
I have a small scar on my chest and very large one (about 1 feet long) on my back. Got both from a road accident. Actually, there was a scar on my forehead too. It was the one I loved to have. But it is not at all visible now; may be I didn’t hit my head hard enough!

2. What does your phone look like?
Like a thick notebook with a large pen and a calculator on it.

3. What is on the walls of your bedroom?

4. What is your current desktop picture?

5. Do you believe in gay marriage?
No. But I don’t have any problem with people who do. After all, it is their life.

6. What do you want more than anything right now?
Get up and walk…

7 . What time were you born?
At 5.20AM on the 19th July, 1966.

8. Are your parents still together?
Yes, they are…

9. Last person who made you cry?

10. What is your favorite perfume / cologne?
I don’t use perfumes or colognes. Using perfumes is an art. If you apply too much it is irritating; if it is too little, it beats the purpose. Striking the right balance is a skill that is difficult to master. I get a headache when people who shower themselves with perfumes are around.

11. What kind of hair/eye color do you like in the opposite sex?
Any color will do as long there is sex 😉

12. What are you listening to?

13. Do you get scared of the dark?

14. Do you like pain killers?
Yes, very much. But I usually don’t take them as they are addictive.

15. Are you too shy to ask someone out?
I was shy when I could (before the accident) and hence never asked anybody out. Now I have become very bold; but cannot go out. May be I should try to ask someone in!

16. If you could eat anything right now, what would it be?

  1. First course: One or two bottles of kallu (toddy) with Syrian beef fry (yes, the dark colored one with lot of tender coconut pieces)
  2. Second course: Karimeen (pearl spot fish) pollichathu (Karimpumkala Style)
  3. Third course: Kappa and red hot ‘konju’ (tiger prawns) curry
  4. Fourth course: Pal Payasam

But what I am going to eat now is plain roti and salad… *sob*

17. Who was the last person you made you mad?
The customer care executive of a courier company. They had sent a shipment addressed to me to Calcutta and delivered it to one Mr. Chatterji. Instead of apologizing, she ordered me to go to their office, sign a few documents and a declaration form, so that they can get the items replaced!

18. Who was the last person who made you smile?
My nephew, when he gave me a flying kiss before going to school!
