Eights. More eights. For the fifth in 2008

I don’t normally do tags. Primarily because I must dread the idea of having to say things I might not know about myself, and then you might also judge me for what comes out honestly, and then finally because most of them are absolute crap!

Anyway, I badly needed something to write about. This one’s to you Mon, for old times sake..

8 things I’m passionate about:

  • Eggs
  • Rain
  • Seaside
  • Driving
  • Software
  • Womankind
  • Conversations
  • Animal kingdom. Dogs, in unusual particularity

8 things I want to do before I die:

  • Tour Europe
  • 300 kph on the road
  • Write reality fiction
  • Rear an animal farm
  • Drive a woman crazy for life
  • Do some notable Civil Service
  • Raise a toast with a speech, and a hundred-odd people watching
  • Ensure everyone’s who’s going to be hurt after I go, goes before me!

8 things I say most often:

  • “I Love You”
  • “tumhari Mummy ki eyes!” [straight off the screen from a hot MTV Roadies hopeful]
  • “How goes it?”
  • “fod diya..”
  • “Are you fucking kidding me ..!”

  • Bon Jovi – I’ll be there for you
  • Bryan Adams – Everything I Do

8 things that attract me to people:

  • Streetwise-ness
  • Sense/Sensibility
  • Originality and authority
  • Handsomeness [naturally!]
  • (if) Mutual love for animals

8 people I think should do this tag:

I wonder if I know eight people who read me, and contrariwise! Anyone whoever thinks this could be a pretty little exercise on his/her blog, be my guest .. 🙂


Vengeful Males!

Forgiveness does not mean forgetting, condoning or excusing whatever happened. It’s acknowledging and then letting it go, along with the burden of anger and resentment.

Where Am I?
