Tagged - 8 Random facts about me !

When the tagging-cycle continues and reaches you, you always wonder, how did they come up with the number ? 5 things you remember, last 7 times you messed up, 9 places you would visit if you had money. But with this one, i love the number 8. It's an even number. It somehow doesn't sound threatening, almost, takes a backseat. It sure sounds a lot but has a humbleness to it. So, before i digress more, and knowing atleast there is one person who will read this who tagged me (thanks Priya), let me jump into it.

Random Fact 1 - I talk the way i write. I write the way i think. I talk whatever i think which lot of folks around me don't appreciate much ;)

RF2 - I abbreviate wherever possible.
"How's ur day going buddy ?"
"Mine is MSSDD"
"Good for u..YMFTYT".
For notes, refer below.

Randon Fact 3 - I grew up without my dad and my wife grew up without her mom. That difference is glaring to our friends as they ask her about taxes, how to hook different cables behind the HDTV and directions while they come to me for "Why do u think Tamilians always talk in English with fellow Tamilian ? " kinda stuff.

Random Fact 4 - I have very less BS tolerance. Towards most things in life. Movies, People, and Procedures (except INS, you can't mess up there).

Random Fact 5 - I used to have huge authority problems and blamed it on my rebelliousness but it is slowly vanishing as I am the Boss now and have begun to appreciate even Bush ;)

Random Fact 6 - I hate others judging anybody and feel it is my responsibility to judge others :)
I blame such dichotomies on Linda Goodman's definition of Geminis.

Random Fact 7 - I don't do well with quiet people even though i am extremely attracted to their ability to be quiet which often times i have realized it is because they are stupid and dont have much to contribute(although the exceptions are of the "I am so full ..so i dont have to spill" kinds).

Random Fact 8 - I HATE those who don't laugh at my jokes and think i am not that funny. I can forgive them even if they hide my tv remote but not laughing at my jokes gets me really riled up ;)

Now, since I haven't blogged much this year and not sure who is reading this anymore,i propose the first 8 readers of this blog to continue the tag and not break the holy circle of Third Series Worshippers :)

Here is all the wonderful expansions:
SSDD - Same Shit Different Day
MSSDD - More of the Same Shit Different Day
YMFTYT - You're More Fucked Than You Think
BS - Bull Shit

Dear Rama,
Thanks for doing the tag. I smiled broadly when I read Random Fact #1....a very empathetic smile. I know what you mean by speaking what you think not going down very well with folks :)

LOL@ hating those who don't laugh at your jokes. I think Kamala and you may have something in common there. She'd wail when I don't smile immediately, persisting "Isn't it funny Amma?"
I'd say "Sure it is"
"But you didn't smile immediately, so you DIDN'T find it that funny. Augggghhhhh..."

Hahaha!Now..Pity laugh is worse than 'No Laughter' at all...am glad Kamala is already aware of it..:)

Enjoy ur Weekend,Priya!

I like you... :)
Not sure which is worse though quiet people or those that just can't stop. I guess it depends on the situation sometimes I love people that talk a lot ..esp when I'm not keen to speak myself... I'm not listening but it gives the impression to others that you two are having a fine conversation.Like when you go into a restaurant you can spot the couples that have been together for way too long .. they're all talked up...and look like they're dying for some conversation even if its all BS.

@propose the first 8 readers of this blog to continue the tag - If there were comments by at least 8 different people, I could've been sure that I've not been invited to continue the tag. But now, I am not sure, especially since your blog seems infinitely more famous compared to mine. :D :D :D
RF 1 - Totally! Add one more - I behave the way I talk. ;)
RF 4 - Aye to that.
RF 6 - Apsaleetly.
