Father Of All Tags

Garima, of I for an Eye, tagged me this time. This one truly is the father of all tags I've ever done! Phewww!

Ten how’s:

1. How did you get one of your scars?
This happened when I was working in the school chemistry lab with the rest of my classmates. The guys next to me over-heated the concentrated Sulphuric Acid in their test tube. They moved the test tube away from the table and the flame, but the bottom of the test tube cracked when their hand was right behind me, and all that boiling hot concentrated H2SO4 poured down on my right leg! I didn’t even get enough time to ask “What happened”! Adventure! :D

2. How did you celebrate your last birthday?
My friends organized a surprise party for me on a beach in Goa! Complete with drinks, food, music and deliciously hot hunks!
LOL! Just kidding! Spent it right here at home… just the ‘Dad’ and the ‘me’! [Sighhh!]

3. How are you feeling at this moment?
Like Jim Carrey in Mask! (“SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSMOKIN'!” “Ooh, somebody stop me!”)
Alright then, I confess! I’m feeling bored… yeah, bored enough to do another TAG! Hmphh! But say, did you guys know that Jim Carrey is also a Capricorn?

4. How did your night go last night?
Wish I could say – “smokin’ hot!”
[Another sighhh!]

5. How did you do in high school?
Total crap! Was a complete nerd! Never bunked classes! Never broke any rules! Most un-cool! Senior school was different though! [wink]

6. How did you get the shirt you’re wearing?
You mean this tee specially autographed by John Abraham? Oh I won it –- along with a date with JA himself -– at this blogging contest organized by SaReGaMaPa!
Ok fine! I’m lying again! My sister got it for me from Delhi!

7. How often do you see your best friend(s)?
Once upon a time, there were best friends. Now, there are just memories… :(

8. How much money did you spend last month?
Let’s see… 13 Belted Cows (for 1,000,000 each) and 8 Saddleback Pigs (for 300,000 each)… 15.4 million in animals. Then there were a lot of new decorations – let’s take a lump sum of 500,000. And then there were the seeds… So all in all, I’d say a little over 16 millions.

9. How old do you want to be when you get married?
Oh do we have a choice about this? Is there a time machine that my groom and I can book to travel to the year we’d like to get married in?

10. How old will you be at your next birthday?
Fifty. :p
Did anyone buy it? I suppose not! [Sighhh again!] Anyways, what is with girls always trying to appear younger than they really are? I, for one, wish I could be 50 tomorrow! Perhaps it’s got something to do with Capricorn’s “reverse aging process”. Read Linda Goodman to understand what that means.


Nine what’s:

1. Your mother's name?
Mummy

2. What did you do last weekend?
Went to the Zoo, had a long ride on an elephant, fed peanuts to the chimps in the cage, had the lions teach me how to roar, measured the neck of the tallest giraffe there, tried to count the spots on the leopard’s back (unsuccessfully), and got my orange bar ice-cream stolen by one of the monkeys running free!
He he! Kidding again! Diwali cleaning was going on in the house last weekend! :p

3. What is the most important part of your life?
My First Love.
Books.
Food.

4. What would you rather be doing?
You mean right now? Well, if I had anything better to do, would I be doing another tag!

5. What did you last cry over?
When I made ‘aloo-baigan’ last time. I had reminded myself a dozen times that I would cook the dish with Panch-Phoran instead of regular cumin seeds, ‘coz aloo-baigan tastes (and smells!) heavenly with Panch-Phoran, but when the oil heated up, I automatically went into my “default” cooking mode, and added cumin seeds instead, only to cry out a second later - “Oh noooo! Not again!” Almost every time I make aloo-baigan, I forget to use Panch-Foran instead of cumin seeds! Huhh!

6. What always makes you feel better when you’re upset?
An action-packed movie -– like the Die Hard series perhaps, or Oceans, or the Bourne series. In fact, Sandra Bullock’s movies are also usually great entertainers!

7. What’s the most important thing you look for in a significant other?
No jokes on this one. He should treat me like “the” one -– should make it absolutely clear, by his words and actions both, that, without any doubt, I am the special someone in his life.

8. What are you worried about?
Right now, with Diwali just around the corner… clothes!
[Sighhhhh] I hate shopping!

9. What did you have for breakfast?
Poori-achar.


Eight you’s:

1. Have you ever liked someone who had a girlfriend/boyfriend?
Hell yeah! Even married ones! What to do! The heart is like a butterfly, and there are so many nice flowers around!
[Doesn’t this sound like a “male” pick-up line? I knew I took birth in the wrong gender!]

2. Have you ever had your heartbroken?
Ohhh yesssss! Everyday it gets shattered into a hundred million pieces! I pick them up all up and put them back together, only to have it broken yet again! See that’s how I became so good at solving jigsaw puzzles, you know!

3. Have you ever been out of the country?
Went on a school trip to Nepal once. So yes, I have been out of the country! :D

4. Have you ever done something outrageously dumb?
Hee hee hee! :p Not going to answer this one… nope, no way!
Oh alright then, just one incident. In fact, this happened during the trip mentioned in the point above. There were 6 girls in this trip – 4 from my sister’s batch and my friend ('S') and I were the seniors. One of the juniors was having trouble with her suitcase – it simply wouldn’t unlock. So she asked for help. I took the key from her and tried it in the lock – no go. Tried the other way – still didn’t work. The suitcase looked vaguely familiar. The rest of the girls also gave it a shot. The suitcase still looked very familiar. And then it was my turn again with the key. And finally lightning struck! It was MY suitcase! And we all had been trying to open it with HER key!

5. Have you ever been back-stabbed by a friend?
Nope. Never.

6. Have you ever had sex on the beach?
Noooooo yaaaaaar!
[sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh] :(

7. Have you ever dated someone younger than you?
Haven’t done it so far, but I guess I might live to see the day yet, considering the fact that I’m still single, at almost 33! :p

8. Have you ever read an entire book in one day?
Oh yes. Loads of books. Even finished off more than one book in a day! I finished off the entire Twilight series (4 huge novels) in 6 days. So you all can imagine my reading speed!


Seven who’s:

1. Who was the last person you saw?
Wish I could say “the guy who played Jacob Black in the Twilight series movies”! But, alas… it was just Dad.

2. Who was the last person you texted?
Ummmm… will have to check the cell phone. Hold on… Ok it was our landlord.

3. Who was the last person you hung out with?
My friend B. Both of us were “hanging” out in my balcony, and broke the clothes line with our combined weight.

4. Who was the last person to call you?
Will anyone believe it if I say “Amitabh Bachchan”? No? Well then in that case, I’ll go with “sister”.

5. Who did you last hug?
Meeeeeee! :D I really like life-sized teddy bears, you know! :p

6. Who is the last person who texted you?
The friend B above.

7. Who was the last person you said “I love you” to?
Now this is something I really don’t remember. If I’m required to give a 100% honest answer on this, I’ll have to go through the Sent Items archives in my Outlook Express, as well as all the comments I’ve left on various blogs, AND the so many lengthy conversations on Facebook! Oh and my cell phone’s message folders too! Not possible!


Six where’s:

1. Where does your best friend(s) live?
He used to stay in my bathroom years ago. Now I have no clue about his whereabouts.

2. Where did you last go?
Eh? I just went to the loo, if anybody is interested in knowing about that! What a vague question!

3. Where did you last hang out?
At some relatives’ place here, but I didn’t break any clothes line there!

4. Where do/did you go to school?
In Kanpur.

5. Where is your favorite place to be?
Just one place? Not possible again!

6. Where did you sleep last night?
In the tree house at my farm in FarmVille! How silly!


Five do’s:

1. Do you think anyone likes you?
Of course! Any doubts about it?

2. Do you ever wish you were someone else?
Ummm… not really. Although I do wish I had legs like Sonali Bendre! :p

3. Do you know the muffin man?
Now I do… thanks to my friend Google! :D The Muffin Man!

4. Does the future scare you?
Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t. The day I start feeling totally secure about my future, I won’t need to wear my specs anymore.

5. Do your parents know about your blog?
Yeah, Dad knows about my blog, and also that I’m working on this marathon tag right now. He’s usually too occupied with the TV though, to check out what crap I write here!


Four why’s:

1. Why are you best friends your best friend?
Read the post linked in the answer to the previous question on my best friend.

2. Why did you get into Blogging?

I used to read a few blogs of people in my orkut list. At the top of every blog, there was a bar that said “Create blog”. I wanted to find out what would happen if I clicked on it, so I did. It asked me to login using my gmail ID, which was simple. And then I followed the rest of the wizard, and “miss_teerious” happened. Of course then I wanted to find out how the post would look like in the page, how the various widgets would look, change of templates, etc etc. And this curiosity has brought me this far!

3. Why did your parents give you the name you have?
Ahh! See there was a movie called “Kadambari” back then, and both my parents were fond of its music. So much so, that they BOTH had its gramophone record! Of course, they didn’t know this before marriage, you know. So anyways, when I was about to be born, my mother used to sit with big dictionaries (pre internet days, remember!) and hunt for “bombastic” girls’ names! Eventually, they looked at the record, which they had in duplicate, and decided that I’ll be called “Kadambari”. Of course, had they realized it back then that it would be shrunk to “Kaddu” in school, they might have chosen differently! :p

4. Why are you doing this survey?
It’s been sitting in my “to-do-list” for like ages now… I figured I just had to strike it off there!


Three if’s:

1. If you could have one super power what would it be?
Stronger and more diverse clairvoyance. At the moment, I believe I have a mild level of claircognizance, but it would be good if this skill becomes so clearly defined that I have no reason for any self-doubts ever.

2. If you could go back in time and change one thing, would you?
Oh yes. Maybe I should change the answer above to “Time Travel” in fact.

3. If you were stranded on a deserted island and could bring 1 thing, what would you bring?
Writing material.


Two would-you-ever’s:

1. Would you ever get back together with any of your ex’s if they asked you?
No.

2. Would you ever shave your head to save someone you love?
Yes.


One last question:

1. Are you happy with your life right now?
After finishing such a bumper tag, who wouldn’t be happy! :D
