A to Z of Me

Linking this with the Half Marathon at The Blog Chatter, Day 5.

A to Z of Me

A Fun Tag

Be it in fiction or in other posts, the tone has been a bit heavy of late. I saw this in Shalini’s blog yesterday, and thought it’d be perfect to lighten the mood a little. I’ve done a similar A to Z of me earlier, but the questions are mostly different.

A- Age: 28
B- Biggest fear: A world without friends and books (* *Shivers* *)
C- Current time: 11:11 p.m.
D- Drink you last had: Lemonade, but made with Tang powder. (With a pinch of salt)
E- Every day starts with: Missing the alarm the first time it rings. (Thank heavens for Snooze Mode!)
F- Favourite Song: Not easy to pick just one, but today’s favorite is Faint by Linkin Park
G- Ghosts, are they real? Perhaps, never given it a thought.
H- Hometown: Bangalore.
I- In love with: Books, Writing, Talking with Friends, Food (mostly eating, not making)
J- Jealous of: People who buy books without worrying about how much to spend.
K- Killed someone: Yes, more than once… in my head, and in my fiction pieces.
L- Last time you cried: Last time I watched Titanic. (* *Yeah, I’m like Joey.* *)
M- Middle name: None, though it’s Leo in my pen name.
N- Number of siblings: One
O- One wish: To watch the Manchester Derby from the Stretford End of Old Trafford.
P- Person you last called: My best friend (if a missed call counts) and a customer care hotline (if the call needed to be connected)
Q- Question you’re always asked: When are your wedding bells? (* *Damned if I know!* *)
R- Reason to smile: At the moment? Hearing my Grandfather talk.
S- Sounds that annoy you: People talking too loudly when the person they are talking to is quite nearby
T- Time you woke up: 6am. Been a long, long, long, long…. long day! (* *Did I mention long?* *)
U- Underwear colour: Grey
V- Vacation destination: a) Favourite so far: New Delhi b) Wish List: London!
W- Worst habit: Biting nails, getting distracted by Facebook while I’m writing.
X- X-Rays you’ve had: Quite a few, the most recent being the upper torso!
Y- Your favourite food: A feast during Onam, made with love by the whole family.
Z- Zodiac sign: Leo (no prizes for guessing) – optimistic, straightforward, possessive, though not impatient.

If you want to take this tag up and have some fun, go ahead and do so!

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Buying books without bothering about the price – that’s me! The first time I did it was with my first salary – I spent half of it on books. The grin on my face was priceless! 😀

    • Oh yes, Modern Gypsy. I do buy books without bothering about the price too. Just that I try not to blow a lot over a little period of time. 😉 The pleasure of investing in books is something else. 😀

  2. Yes, it was fun to read and I too wrote on A-to-Z of me for today’s post after getting inspiration from Shalini’s post 😛
    Isn’t her post a saviour for so many of us I guess?


  3. Liked the compilation, Leo Joey! Darshana’s blog did it all for me! 🙂
    My dad is a Leo and I am a Gemini and there’s always pulling legs! 🙂
