slip-sliding away…..

Tag here

Posted by Yacoob on March 18, 2007

Over the last few weeks, I’ve added some new links on the right hand side – the blogs of some really interesting people.

One of the new folks, Maryam, tagged me with the topic “5 things you didn’t know about me”.

So, here goes:

  1. I cannot ride a bike (unless its got training wheels ;) )
  2. At one point, “Terminator 2” was my favourite movie of all time – I had seen it about 15 times and knew every scene and line.
  3. I used to be a sleepwalker, and reportedly did a Steve Urkel impression in my sleep.
  4. I do not like plugs being left on, when there’s nothing plugged in. It’s dangerous. I switch these plugs off.
  5. Since yesterday, I have a black spot on the inside of my cheek. It may be a blood clot; or it may be a beauty spot (if u get those inside your mouth)…or it may be something else. I don’t know what it is. But its new. Up until yesterday, that was something I didn’t even know about me ;) )

That’s 5. And now, I tag:

    the elevator at home is well-lit. it has mirrors. on the way down (or was it up?), i noticed it.

    it seems to have faded a lot now, though…

    i did this one already:)
    its in my archives somewhere…
    here we go…

    oh wait that was five weirdest habits –

    1. I write down the title and author of every book i’ve completed reading in a little pink floral memobook I’ve had since the sixth grade.
    2. I never refer to people by their real names when I make personal diary entries. Instead, I employ grand metaphors or cite them as “The Prat”, “Scaly” and “He-who-shall-not-be-named-in-case-these-diaries-are-published-posthumously”.
    3. I eat the lunch I bring to work before 9am.
    4. I order triple espresso along with a shot of pure liquidised wheatgrass because I like the way the combination makes my teeth chatter.
    5. I take my coffee black, no sugar. The bitterness is the most honest taste I know.
