Honest Confessions


I found a couple of pending awards in my "to-blog" folder recently. Accepting them officially now.

The first one is the "Honest Scrap Award" from Shilpa Garg. This award is accompanied by a tag. The rules are as follows:

“Honest Scrap” Award, is given by bloggers to other bloggers who express themselves and write/blog from their heart & soul. List 10 honest things about yourself—and make them interesting, even if you have to dig deep! Link to the person who tagged you, and pass the award on to 7 bloggers who you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap and whose blogs you find brilliant in design and content.

Here's my set of 10 honest confessions about myself:

  1. I am a very easy person to live with. No kidding. I don't nag, I eat without making a fuss, I'm very flexible regarding most mundane things in life, and I don't even ask too many questions! (Well, not unless any of my plans are dependent on the answers!) But obviously there's a condition attached to all this freedom - I expect the same from people around me too! :D Live and let me live... that's my simple motto in life.

  2. The sound of TV news reporters really disturbs me. Their obnoxiously fast rate of speech and the hyper-agitated tone of their voice completely rattles my mental equilibrium. Oh and not to forget the repeated "I am telling you", "I wish to tell you", "let me tell you", "what I'm going to tell you" blah blah blah after every single minute! (Or perhaps it is in every single sentence?) I wish they'd take news reading lessons from the Vividh-bharti news readers!

  3. I tend to completely lose myself in the books I read. I can be found rolling on my bed in loud guffaws or on the verge of falling off my chair (definitely not feminine in any way)! I can also be found sobbing silently, with real tears in my eyes. As a matter of fact, I can be found doing those things watching a movie too!

  4. I hate watching mushy romantic movies by the way. I would choose an Ocean's or a Die Hard over a Serendipity any day. Just like I would choose a Sidney Sheldon, Dan Brown or a Wilbur Smith over a Mills & Boons any day.

  5. I LOVE tea. [drools] In fact, here's a secret... no matter how much you've pissed me off, no matter how angry I am with you, if you just make a cup of tea for me -- with very little sugar, and even less milk -- then you're back in my good books! Yes, making up with me is as simple as that! :D What! You don't believe me? Well ask my Dad then, huh!

  6. I am hypothermic. (Yupp! The female character in the story "Beard Trap" was inspired by my own traits!) My usual body temperature is 96.8 degrees, instead of the normal 98.4 degrees. And when people around me are wearing one sweater, I'm usually stuffed in two!

  7. I become very irritable when I don't get enough sunlight. As a normal rule, I hate going out of the house unless there is absolute necessity. But back in Delhi, my sister's place is sort of in a basement (in Khirki Extn.)! And there have been occasions when I simply went for a stroll to the Malviya Nagar Main Market, and back, at peak noon, just so I could absorb some sunlight! (I guess there's absolutely no point in dreaming about a future between me and Edward Cullen, right?)

  8. Aamir Khan is the only Bollywood entity whose poster ever adorned my personal space in the bedroom shared by my sister and me. When he first entered the scene, not many people cared for a boy-next-door kind of character. I almost broke the nose of several of my classmates (Mentally, at least, as my "ladylike" upbringing didn't quite allow me to get into real fights with kids at school!) because they dared to criticize him!

  9. I used to bunk a lot of Physics classes when I was in class 11th and 12th. And a couple of times, I also bunked the Commerce coaching I took for a month (as I was switching from Science in I.S.C. to Commerce in College)... went to have golgappas with my friends instead! (I wonder if my kids will ever get to read this post. I hope not.)

  10. I don't really deserve this "Honest Scrap Award" completely. I don't blog here as honestly as I should, considering the fact that this is my personal blog! But I guess that's the way I am! :D Having said that, whatever part of myself I DO share with my readers here, I share it with complete honesty... straight from the heart.


So thank you, Shilpa. And I pass this on to the following 7 bloggers:

  • Garima
  • Vyazz
  • Ritu
  • Meghana
  • Shanu
  • Tavish
  • Maithili

You guys know what you need to do, right! ;-)


The second award, that was pending collection by me, came from Prashansa - the "I Luv Your Blog Award". Thanks Pra! This one doesn't come with a tag attached to it! But I decided to change the rules a bit to make it more interesting. While accepting this award, you guys have to write a post describing how you fell in love... with anyone/anything.

For example, here's a post by me that you can check out: "How I Fell In Love...".

And the lucky winners of this award are:

  • Avada
  • Manjusha
  • Pujitha
  • Shobhit
  • Manish
  • Roshmi
  • Pramathesh

Well, 7 seemed like a good number, so I chose 7 for this award too.

So it's your turn now, friends. Please leave the link of your post as a comment here so I can hop over to check it out. Enjoy the party! See you!


Here's more in "Tags (or memes)"!

ah, I am seeing an award distribution ceremony after months! log bhul hi gaye hai blog awards ko!

nice confessions..chai part - hmmm, very interesting!!

Neha said...

OK, nice confessions sounds SO lame! lemme replace it with - that's being very honest (I guess) :P

Kaddu said...

He he! I knew the "chai part" would ring a bell with you for sure! And these type of friendly award ceremonies have apparently been kicked out by the real monetary prizes now! :( Btw, it was kind of difficult finding more "honest things" about myself to share on this blog after having made so many confessions in the past already!

Rajlakshmi said...

//very irritable when I don't get enough sunlight.// hehehe one less competitor for Edward Cullen :P ... :P
really its after a long time a blog award ceremony has taken place :D
interesting confessions

Kaddu said...

Hi Rajlakshmi! :D
This one had been sitting in my folder for months apparently. Finally got done with it! :p

evanescentthoughts said...

Thanks for the award Kaddu.. And I agree with Neha.. there are no more awards being given on the blogosphere these days and yeah like you said, the monetary ones replaced them, which is kinda sad :(
Nice honest confessions :) Even I lose myself in books, never liked mushy movies/books (but have changed these days. I actually like some of them :D)

Mr. Pramathesh™ Borkotoky said...

Thank you for the award. However, I would like to make a few things clear.

1) Although, Fried Eye uses a blog CMS, it is not a blog. It is a magazine.

2)Fried Eye is not mine, I'm just a kind of moderator and most work is done by other people, including authors, editors, graphic artists, etc.

Shobhit said...

:D

Thanks a lot for the award !

Interesting confessions those. Though I knew about the bunks for 'golgappas' one. :D

By the way, who is Edward Cullen ? :P

Kaddu said...

@Avada: You're reading MBs these days? :p He he! Koi nahin... when you do the tag, then do leave a comment here ok.

Kaddu said...

Yo Prams! You are the central command center! :D Right? So consider this award for the entire team of Fried Eye. :D

Kaddu said...

Hey Prams... you can even ask all your writers to take up this tag... how each one of them fell in love... with anything/anyone! :D But I do want to read yours.

Kaddu said...

Shobhit: Read Twilight saga by Stephanie Myers. :D

Tavish Chadha(sensible-bakwas.com) said...

Nice confessions Kaddu... magar beware log confession No.5 ka bohot gakat fayada uthayenge... piss u off and then make u a cup of tea... lol

Thanks a lot for the tag.. will take it up soon! :)

Kaddu said...

He he he! Koi nahin Tavish! As long as they make me tea, it doesn't matter if they piss me off! :p Shobhit will probably roll his eyes when he reads this comment! He doesn't understand why people like tea!

You get to do the 10 honest confessions tag. I can't wait to read juicy secrets about you! :D

Vyazz said...
