Tag tharikida Tag!!

It has been long since I had done a tag and this one from Silverine (formerly Princess of Pala and now presiding over the Kingdom of Bangalore) was a nice break…

1. Pick out a scar you have, and explain how you got it.

I have a scar on my shoulder, which is almost hard to find now. It happened when I was riding a scooter at a breath taking top speed of 30-km/ hr and rammed behind a pick–up van….

Well this question reminds of me cousin who sports a scar on his cheek after a daredevil attempt to shave when he was a kid!!

2. What does your phone look like?

Surprisingly it looks like a phone!!.. Uh!!

3. What is on the walls of your bedroom?

An original Van Gogh painting. I got it for a bargain at the flea market.. I am ready to sell it for 50 dollars…any takers..

4. What is your current desktop picture?

A Tom and Jerry cartoon at home. And in office it is a beautiful $None$…coz a plain blue desktop might just give a false indication that the chap is a headshot professional. ;-P

5. Do you believe in gay marriage?

I don’t know…But for sure I wouldn’t want my son to tell me one fine day that he is gay and that Dad wrote a few decades back in his blog that he believed in Gay marriage…
Honestly I find it hard to digest…

6. What do you want more than anything right now?

Audi TT ...just for visiting the shop to buy a case of beer and some currywurst.


7 . What time were you born?

Ohoohh..I had forgotten to wear my Tissot that day.. ;-P.
But the records say sometime around 9:00 pm.. Dad says he missed the 9 o’clock news.. And Mom says she missed her favourite serial…. But the district of Kottayam dint miss a beat when this kid came to the world with a 10-paisa smile!!!

8. Are your parents still together?

Yoo!!!.. Thank god they donno much about law!! ;-P

9. Last person who made you cry?

Not a person. But some holocaust videos…I was feeling desperate after that..

10. What is your favourite perfume / cologne?

Anything, which doesn’t smell like a mosquito repellent. But in general I don’t like fruity smells.

11. What kind of hair/eye color do you like in the opposite sex?
Pink hair and yellow eyes with a dash of purple… eh..
Until I saw the question I never thought about it.. On instant thoughts I loved the looks of Princess Diana…

12. What are you listening to?

A random song which I found in youtube..Loved the picturisation...

13. Do you get scared of the dark?

When iron maiden sang fear of the dark. I got slightly scared. But otherwise I am dead scared of dark..

14. Do you like painkillers?

Brain seizure…brain seizure.. Brain unable to handle such silly questions..Question skipped..

15. Are you too shy to ask someone out?

Who said that…only did yesterday I go out with Gwen Stefani… ;-P
To be fair to the question …Yes. That is one of my biggest fears that I may not gather enough confidence to ask someone out…

16. If you could eat anything right now, what would it be?

Oh..well it is 9 degrees today. and that too in middle of summer…And I think some tapioca , fish curry and a hot kattan kaapi is what I want the most now...

17. Who was the last person you made you mad?

A drunkard who was pouring obscenities at a Nun.. This guy did not have the decency to talk properly to someone who was trying to help him.

18. Who was the last person who made you smile?

Well it was an incident. I was waiting to catch the metro at the station and I saw a poor guy rummaging the waste bins and vending machines where people might have forgotten to take back the change. I dint want to give alms to him. Coz I felt that might offend him, as he wasn’t exactly begging. So I went to a machine, which was bit further ahead. Bought something and intentionally left the change in the machine..

Three minutes later this poor chap who had seen me using that machine came back with the change and handed it to me. He had apparently thought that I had forgotten the change.


And I am tagging Nags, Mishmash, Sreejith,Srijith, Mayth, Venky ,Still searching and anyone else who wants to take up this tag.

That was a very nice gesture towards that guy, and even more touching that he returned the change. I would have a lump in my throat and not a smile on my lips at such a moment. Truly a dignified gent he is.

Thank you very much for the video. Bought another lump to my throat :p

This one revealed a lot about the man behind the mustache :)

I really liked the part where u described ur perfect gal. I don't think pink hair is that hard to find in Hamburg!

The random song's kool, though i ddnt understand the lyrics!

Alexis said...

Good answers... Audi TT for visiting the shop...that's cool.

And the old man who handed the change back to you steals the show.

Nice post... I too have to do this.

But as a mark of respect to this wonderful take on the tag..I request no one else to further entertain the idea of taking up this tag..

Adorable Pancreas said...

Mishmash ! said...

I liked ur reasoning behind the 5th one :D and the last one was a touching gesture from u and an admiring one from that guy!!

It was such a nice well written, funny and touching tag that when I was having my own doubts to take it up or not,I came across Alexis comment for u:))) now shouldn't I respect Alexis ?:))))

Mayth!! said...

Love the way you've maintained the same level of humour as you do in other posts, and yet managed to portray the human-part of you..

Poor-guy incident indeed touching. :) Where is all the love in this demented world!

Keshi said...

Adorable Pancreas said...

A lot of people wouldn't. Seriously. People ignore the poor, pretend they don't exist. You're a rare specimen. May your tribe increase.

Srijith Unni said...

Hey Mathew, thanks for tagging me.. That was pretty rocking..! you really know to laugh at life. Keep going dude..!

Gwen Stefani..! Oooh..! Cool!
.. oh and I forgot, some silly questions well handled..

Me a bit, tied down, with work, just shifted to a new job and new location, so finding it really hard to get some time for blog hopping and blogging..! But will assure you that your tag`s next, whenever it is..!

Have Fun, Take Care and God Bless!

With Best Regards,
Srijith.
