Tag Karma

I think its high time I caught up on some tags before 'tag karma' bites me back. I have no clue what tag karma is, I just made it up, so dont ask! Anyways....

I was tagged ages ago by
Solitaire to list down some embarassing moments (like every other post in this blog was not enough). I think there might be a thin line between embarassing and funny, and in most cases, I cant define that line. Everything looks funny to me. But well....

- When I was interviewing for this job, and had my interview with the hiring manager, I ended up sitting in his chair. He went out to get coffe, asked me to grab a seat (I swear he pointed in a direction which led to his chair) and when he returned, there I was enjoying his comfy office chair. If any of you are wondering, yes, I did receive a job offer and I did take it up. And no, its not the place I currently work at.

- I cant think of any other embarassing moments. Heck, yeah, once I refused to wear pants (please note I was 5 years old then). I have no clue why, but one fine morning I refused to wear pants. So my Mom threw me out of the house and that freaked me out. This resulted in a lot of loud crying, which brought out the neighbors. So here I was, standing outside my house, minus pants, with neighbors staring at me. Please note (again) I was five years old. And I am not too sure who was embarassed more. My neighbors, or myself. But why am I not surprised that one of my neighbors moved out all the way to Spain after that incident. Abhi's (who is my neighbor) mom still keeps smiling when she looks at me and my third neighbor just cranks up his TV volume so in case I repeat this act again, he wont hear me cry and hopefully miss out on the event! Once again people, I was 5 years old, so stop imagining things! And Mom, if you are reading this - thank you for tossing me out of the house, else I would have never worn pants!

And now that I have grossed you guys out and done my one evil deed of the day, I shall move on to my next tag.

So I have been tagged by Khizzy in her top five choices for a 'Brilliant Weblog' award (I tell ya people, I am so moving to Pakistan!). You could probably go read the rules etc. on her
post. You just have to pass on five people whose blogs you find interesting. Thats tough for me, coz I have a ton of blogs I visit and find many interesting. But I'll throw out five here, which for some reason captivate me. I shall omit those who already have this award, those I have already tagged in this post and those who are not blogging so frequently.

DewdropDream - Love the way she plays with words. If I apply to B-school, I am hiring her to write my essays!

Tazeen - You got to love her. She takes inspiration from me telling her that her blog is boring. So she holds a live grenade in her hand and clicks photos of classmates sleeping (alone and with each other) during a training in Italy!

Princess Banter - She will blog once a month, but make the wait worth it. I just like her style and ways she blows you off with some of her theories (or her friends theories)

Menagerie - She can put down the most ordinary day of her life in the most amazing fashion possible.

Iyerospace - Just so everyone believes I am not reading blogs written by women! But Iyer is Iyer. Leave your brains aside and read his blog. Its like watching a Govinda movie. Dont apply too much logic to it. A good break from the serious sorts!

Mahi - I know I was supposed to tag only five, but I have to tag Mahi more out of fear, else the next time I log onto gchat, I am in for a message which goes something like, "WTF dude! Why was I not tagged! I should be #1 out there! Tag me! NOW!!"

... 21 days to go!

embarrassment is something that comes after Iyer and not before it...

so better change it ;)

You are a sweetheart, but all is not well. I may escape live grenades but one of the classmates have threatened to sue me for taking pictures while he was asleep. He cites invasion of privacy as grounds for litigation, privacy my %&^%()#@$

@ Tazeen: He was in a public space so it won't be construed as invasion of privacy :D Oh and the copyright is yours too... maybe you ought to sue him for obstructing your right to the freedom of expression. hehe!

#Solitaire: That was the idea :P

#Iyer: I shoudl change embarassment to embarassing. Would that make the order right?

#Dewdropdream: LOL! There could be evil motives behind this one... I might be planning a trip to the UK and looking for a place to stay :P
(dont worry, I am not!)

#Tazeen: Dewdrop might be right if a classroom is a public place. Whoever is thinking of sueing you is just scared his boss will see the pic and think he slept thru class.... or something!

#Scribbler: Thanks! I am glad you liked them!

#Khizzy: :) back at ya!

#Dewdrop: Gee... thanks! See how dumb I am! I already forgot the primary motive! And yeah, I just might head to the UK. I think I am getting bored of the USA.

dude you suck ASS.
for 2 reasons
1) i really SHOULD have been #1
2) abhi just passed me a strange and scary looking necklace with these cryptic words "this is from apoo. there is a reason for it...."
the necklace has a skeleton hand reaching downwards...is it reaching down for my heart? a boob?
knowing you, i think i'm pretty sure i know what the answer is.......

#Mahi: Deep down in my heart, you are #1. You know it!
About that necklace.... I have no idea what Abhi has given you! Interpret it as, till the last breath and even after (you know when I turn into a skeleton), I shall always be reaching out for your heart (its the heart. I have learnt once the heart is yours, the boobs follow :P)
