Excuse me the excitement, it has been years since someone considered me worthy of being awarded anything except a tax refund. Ergo, allow me the pleasure of clicking my heels and doing a Jack Sparrow dance routine somewhere on my desk before I return to back to mother ship, and contain my rapidly beating heart.
The lovely Dipali awarded me this:
Mwuah, mwuah, mwuah, Dips, you’ve given me a purpose for living once again.
And I’m supposed to list out random facts about myself. Hmm. That’s a toughie, the world already knows every random fact about me there is to know, and I need to manufacture some new random facts pronto and make them believable.
Okay, here goes.
I hate to cook.
What, you all already knew that? Dont tell me. Let me try again.
I love to eat.
This one too? Gah. That sort of limits my options.
What about this one, I am lethal with a store sale and a credit card in my hand.
Old hat you say?
Erm, yet again, I can wolf down any quantum of chocolate and guaranteed not throw up.
*sigh* you guys are a jaded lot aren’t you.
Okay. Here are some brand new random facts.
I must, must, must wash my hair every single day. And no, its not because of the traditional definition of ‘washing your hair’ thank you.
I know exactly when someone has touched my things, even if they seem to be kept in no particular order.
I cannot, just cannot be polite or interact with people I dislike. I’m sorry.
I can read multiple books from multiple genres simultaneously, and feel no pain.
I can spend an entire day doing nothing absolutely and still feel tired.
I have a fetish about keeping my wardrobe organised by colour. Which of course, is primarily comprised of black. Which makes the organising easier.
I can watch my son sleeping for hours.
I have zero interest in housework. After a few days, the dust looks just the same.
God help anyone who wakes me from a deep sleep. Think of a kodiak bear being roused from hibernation. Yup. That’s the imagery that you need to keep when you if you’re around and I’m asleep.
I can eat sabudana khichdi twice a day, everyday for the rest of my life without complaint. If only someone would make it for me.
Take it away girls.
