19 Hits Yeild a Tag

I got a total of 19 hits yesterday, so I figured I'd post something regardless of it being the quintessence of crap .


What is the first thing you think of when you wake up?:
If Camus is right and life has no meaning to it and the pursuit of happiness is an endeavour in vain I might as well go back to bed.

Favourite fast food place:
The stash under my bed.

Future child’s name:
Vae Spurius (Latin anyone?)

Finish this statement, “If I had a lot of money I’d…” :
Buy every last copy of both books One Night At The Call Center and Five Point Someone and then have one helluva bonfire.

Do you drive fast?
I don't drive. If I did, I would currently be sitting on a sand dune somewhere deep in the Gobi desert for I would have gotten lost on the way to my neighour's place.

Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?
Yes, I enjoy the practice of taxidermy.

Last movie seen in a theatre:
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. On the insistence of brother and mater, I yielded and ended up watching a movie which had one thing going for it: a drove mindless loyal fans.

What book are you reading?
Most recent translation of War And Peace and Three Men On The Bummel

Favourite board game:
Go and chess.

Worst feeling in the world:
Stubbing the same toe twice in a matter of thirty seconds.

Do you eat the stems on broccoli?
Yes. I like the idea of the head and stem being re-united in my esophagus, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Storms - Cool or Scary?
Bloody cool. I love to sit out in the rain and listen to the sound of hopefully distant thunder.

If you could dye your hair any colour, what would be your choice?
Dirty green: for all those who abhor the colour.

Name all the different cities/towns you have lived in:
Delhi.

Favourite sports to watch:
Football and Twenty-twenty cricket matches.

Favourite magazine:
Economist, The New Yorker, National Geographic.

Favourite smells:
Fresh earth, paint, yellowing pages of an old book.

Favourite sound:
The crunching of autumn leaves, thunder.

One nice thing about the person who sent this to you:
No one tagged me.
So, to nothingness: it never fails to keep me company. :P

What’s under your bed?
In addition to what I mentioned earlier I have a game of Monopoly which has a decades worth of dust and dirt fastidiously layered atop it.

Would you like to be born as yourself again?
Oh hell yes!

Morning person or night owl?
Both/either i.e. I am often an insomniac.

Over easy or sunny side up?
A well done Sunny Side Up.

Favourite place to relax:
On the rocks in the park close to home, anyplace under the night sky.

Favourite ice cream flavour:
Chocolate chip, Cookie Dough, Vanilla with chocolate sauce and nuts.

You pass this tag to:
All those plagued by writer's block.

That'd still leave the world with 'Three Mistakes of My Life'. Maybe you can write a book titled 'One Mistake of My Life' then? And that one mistake would obviously be forgetting that Three mistakes existed too.

I tried watching Indiana Jones on the computer. Went to sleep within half an hour. :/

Do you eat the stems on broccoli?
Yes. I like the idea of the head and stem being re-united in my esophagus, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.


Uhh. :S

Would you like to be born as yourself again?
Oh hell yes!


They should ask the others this question. I'd like to see how many say yes. Evil Woman. :P

Nikita said...

I haven't read Three Mistakes Of My Life, why would I want to boycott it? :S
Doesn't the thought of vegetable unification make you feel merry and cheerful?

Vasudha said...

Read The Three Mistakes of My Life then. You'll change the books in the bonfire. :|

You're sane enough to think of philosophy right when you wake up? No hangovers? :P

Dirty green, ah pretty. No, really.

sid said...

You people fail to understand Indiana Jones... its about the hat... its all about that hat.

Nikita said...

Vasudha: Of course I have hangovers, that's what causes me to go into nihilism mode. :P

Sid: What about the whip?

The Keeper of the Keys said...

it might be my crappy translator but does vae mean woe and spurius is some kinda furnace. really?

ugh taxidermy, ugh, you've totally turned me off stuffed animals now, even though....

i've read three men in a boat...but bummel?
war and peace must be rather challenging?

hopefully distant thunder? i'd like to be as near to a lightening as possible...not too near though.

i like the smell of fresh paper...and petrol :/

ice cream..sigh...i'll hafta go buy some now...

i'll do this tag pretty soon, but yours was so much fun!

Vasudha said...

Tagged.
Go play.

Nikita said...

the keeper of the keys:
no it means Damn! Bastaard (father unknown).

Vasudha: err... more?

kika said...

The Three Mistakes of My Life is better than the other two...
That's all I'll say, no more...

Indiana Jones sucks...Big time...

unknown anonymous fan.

Nikita said...

Kika: agreed.

geekwrestler said...

Would you like to be born as yourself again?
Oh hell yes!

Let us punctuate this sentence, the result is - Oh! Hell? Yes! :P

I don't drive. If I did, I would currently be sitting on a sand dune somewhere deep in the Gobi desert for I would have gotten lost on the way to my neighbor's place.
But then you must be living in the Gobi desert... I mean what sane human being drives to his neighbors place? :P

Radhika Saxena said...

warm and fuzzy inside..ughh...,ewww... bleh :\
and you'd lose your way while going to the neighbour's and end up in Gobi desert...far fetched..But SO freakin' true! :P

Nikita said...

Greek Wrestler: I'll give yo another sentence, punctuate it for me, will ya? Here: Sod off.
Oh and I am not a sane human. :P

Radhika: Yes, very true.

Alt + F4 said...

You have the period in the right place at least.

It's funny, but "Sod off" don't have quite the same effect as f&%* off or s@$% off for me. I can even write it without going "s#* off" as not to offend my delicate sensabilities! I think different cultures have different expletives.
:nod:

Vasudha said...

Chandni Chowk, live and exclusive. Now showing on Tattletale. =P

Vasudha said...

Oh, and yeah. One more tag it is. And I think its geek, not greek. =P

geekwrestler said...

Nik: How about "So? Do ff!" Now to find who ff is! :P [Oh and its Geek, like Miss V says. :D ]

alt+f4: At most times a polite "Go away" works too. :) No need to bring the heavy artillery to fight peasants! :)

Nikita said...

G(r)eek Wrestler: I can think of a few things for ff. :P

Akshi said...

Nikita said...

Akshi: Oh. I'm sorry. I got caught up in work and havent written for a while.
