A tag

From Doli.

Tell your readers 10 things about you that they may or may not know, but are true..
Tag 10 people with the award, and be sure to let them know they’ve been tagged (a quick comment on their blog will do).
Link back to the blogger who tagged you.
Now after so many years of blogging I am almost sure there is absolutely nothing that the readers of this blog dont know about me. Even down to my nose hair greying.  And I think I’ve done this sort of thing before. Listing out stuff no one knows and some stuff no one would care to know about me. Therefore this is a tough task, Doli.  But in my recent spirit of not sitting and hatching tags, and awards and such like till the hatchlings are ready to leave the nest.
So, without much ado, here are ten things I bet no one knew about me.
1]I am terrible at telephone conversations. I cannot make long pleasant conversation for the life of me. I keep it short, crisp and over and out.
2] I am a horror movie addict.
3] I cannot step into public without lipstick on. If I’m stretched on the bier without lipstick, am sure my corpse would sit up and apply some on them lips.
4] I believe in ghosts and the supernatural and the paranormal.
5] I couldnt be bothered about coordinating what I wear, therefore I live in jeans and black tshirts.
6]My waist size at age nine was the same as it is today. I was, erm, a very healthy girl.
7] I pray every night before sleeping.
8]I have a before bedtime ritual that I never skip. Wash face. Apply face cream, body lotion, cream on the feet and socks. If this is not done, then I am at the point of dying and couldnt care less what I look like tomorrow.
9] When I develop a dislike to someone, I cannot even pretend to be civil to that person. 
10] I have never worn a strapless or a spaghetti strapped top or dress.
And I tag:
Eves Lungs
Poppin’s Mom
Chox Box
Mama Mia (Abha)
Gypsy Girl
Get down to it folks.

    i think stretched out conversations can happen.. u only need the right person on the other side of the line.. 🙂
    i beleive in the supernatural and the paranormal too..i hate horror movies… i think i must have seen all of 1 in my life!praying at bedtime is a good practice but its something i dont really do.. 😦 i can be civil to ppl i dislike.. thats coz at the workplace u dont really have much of a choice!

    Dunno. I can chat for hours face to face, but am just uncomfortable on the phone, and I’m the kind who will read, eat, watch television all at the same time, so just chatting on the phone makes me feel like I’m wasting time unless I can like the idea ad goes, walk and talk.

    i dont believe this- you havent worn a spaghetti strap or strapless dress! this was surprising

    Well, its true. And dont think I’m about to start in my old age.


  3. Suki says:

    Wow. You’ve mastered the art of being revealing without revealing anything at all!

    Oh, and I haven’t worn a spaghetti strap or strapless dress either, and I don’t intend to start either. Some dresses are meant to fill up absences that you and I just don’t have :P.

  8. Doli says:

    hehehe bedtime ritual! I am very lazy to do that.. i try to make it a habit but I always feel sleepy and give up!


  9. Sands says:

    nice list. So with you on the long phone conversations. I can talk face to face forever but have too little patience to speak on the phone 🙂
