Weirdly yours...

It seems like ages since I accessed this space, and the blogosphere in general. I actually made a mistake with my password signing in!

Well, given my current state of busy-ness, I'm glad to have an easy brain is too tired to come up with something original, so I'm going to give in to Aparna's tag.
This one requires coming up with 6 weird things about oneself, and then tagging six others. I'll do the first, not the second...(sorry, Aparna!)

So here goes, six publicly declarable ways in which I get qualified as 'weird':
1. I get really irritated and pissy if I don't get at least 10 minutes of quiet, alone 'me' time every day.
2. I hold on to little, silly mementoes which may seem inconsequential to others, but somehow tie me to a memory or a day. Examples include old ticket stubs, an empty cigarette box, an almost empty packet of Tums, an edge of a sheet containing a scribbled note from my college days, a piece of tinsel from a gift wrapping...
3. I am constantly looking for, and get tickled by funny store names, street names, place names, etc. Consider a gem from my road trip last weekend: An exit called "Hooker Creek" on I-5, enroute to a city called "Weed"! Only in California, land of free love and flower power!

4. I find it very hard to believe/accept compliments about my appearance. Relatedly, I hate being photographed.
5. There are times when I absolutely have to listen to a particular song, or else I get paranoid and superstitious feelings that something's going to go wrong. Like I believe strongly that the reason I topped in Math in my HSC is that I listened to "Sunny came home" just before I left although in the process I almost got late for my exam. If you know me at all, you'll know how ridiculous it is that I did well in something like Math and will believe that it's the song that did it!
6. I have a really weird memory - I can remember some foolish, unimportant trivia for years, but can't for the life of me remember whether someone I spent the last five days with wears glasses or not! I can't play card games because I forget what happened two moves back, but I can whomp your ass at remembering lines from movies I love, however long back I've seen them!

Phew, done! I'm still a blogger. Thanks for a quick excuse for an entry, Aparna. Anyone else who happens to drift by, feel free to accept the baton for this tag...

Later, gators!

Oh, you forgot the one about very 'smaarti' e-mail names and the song for each occasion and ... I should stop :-) Aparna, you should have made that a list of 20 not 6. You just 'curbed' what could have been something brilliant to read :-)

Aarti -- Didn;t know I would match you in all those weird stuff ! :)

2 - me too (only rarely though and with special people..)

4 - Me too, but I think it's different with's a lot more common for girls to be complimented on their appearance anyway

5 - Ditto

6 - Ditto

Well, there's only one difference..You thought all those made you weird. I think it makes me normal ! :)
