Being un-eeek...

Just when I was hopelessly running out of ideas to blog I got tagged after a really long time by a blogger who can write blogs out of thin air…Abracadabra …just like that!!

The tag sounds simple and should have been a cakewalk for rocket science experts like me. But the ‘unique’ clause in the tag made me ponder a bit… Neways here goes the tag.

5 Unique Things Found in My Room


Since I have changed house thrice over the past one year, I don’t really have a room which is close to my idea of a room…Nevertheless I guess like all single guys who are lazy enough to polish their shoes by nonchalantly brushing on those bristles on the elevators, there is always something special in our rooms…
  • F.C St Pauli scarf...Not a football buff but love the ideas what the club stands for.
  • A Mozart memorabilia miniature violin which I bought during the recent trip to Austria...Got to parcel all the stuff gathered over the last few months else I ll have to check-in at the airport carrying a 60 kg baggage and pretend I never knew that they allowed just 30 after all..
  • Highly confidential documents printed from the office printer about places to visit during Christmas…
  • A trainer cycle which is a unique decorative item in the room. There is always a next day for starting the exercise...right?? ;-P
  • A bottle of ice-tea which is such a good drink when you are watching television.

5 Unique Things Found in My Bag
  • A ‘Saint Nikolas’ chocolate gifted by a colleague in office. It looks so good that I am having trouble to eat it.
  • It sounds so girly, but I carry a Vaseline lip balm because it gets so cold out here. ;-P
  • Any novel which I always carry in case I get bored. right now its “My name is Red by Orhan Pamuk”
  • A small pic of Mother Theresa
  • An airplane model which I got to gift to a family here…

5 Unique Things Found in My Wallet
  • Visiting cards of travel agents who can give me tickets for 0 Euro but with taxes and surcharges of 100 euros…clever eh..
  • A washing machine coin which I need for washing clothes here.
  • It is silly…a bit of paper with bank account numbers...I have never managed to remember all those numbers even till now.
  • Old Indian sim card ...I was supposed to be abroad for three months and I assumed to use the old number once I got back...But it has been a long 16 months and I still don’t feel like throwing it away.
  • A million Euro...am one of those rich dudes kind…driving Porsche’s…dining at the Ritz…flying private jets…yeah all these after I cash that piece of paper (they have written on the lottery, the first prize is a million Euro)...I was joking...hahaha...I don’t need that money!!...No..No..On second thoughts, I don’t mind… ;-P

I will pass on the tag to new friends in here… abhi..Ann..Regil..Elijo and Zee.. I am sure i can carry on this espionage and submit the reports to Agent Silverine who is doing a psycho-analysis report on bloggers..

This was a nice coming out of the closet kinda post :p

I too bought miniature Guitars from Bali and my highly confidential printouts are mostly recipes. Good one, more so because of the 'unique' element in it.

Yup, exercise is always better postponed for another day!

Coin for washing clothes? Now thats unique! :)

Hey, I totally understand how you can't eat a choc coz it looks too good! I also have the same sort of trouble in burning candles which look pretty! lol!

Apply glycerin to your lips before sleeping that will help better than the vaselin.
