Tag: Eight Random Facts About Myself

This has been a long time coming. Jawahara and Lakshmi had both tagged me a while ago. On the thought that late is better than never, here goes...

1. I don't sleep much. I go for days sleeping really, really late or getting up really, really early (such as today) and then once in a couple of weeks, sleep a lot to make up for it.

2. It's hard for me to let go of things. If I sense that someone is upset, I keep digging to figure out why and how to reslove it. Sometimes it ain't purdy.

3. I'm proof-reading all the time - restaurant menus, billboard signs, airplane tickets. Anything goes. And I have the urge to tell the people I'm with exactly what I found wrong.

4. I have an insane memory. I remember so many downright useless things - episodes, facts, names - from so long ago with such clarity that I wonder just what important things my brain is rejecting for storage because of lack of space.

5. I am extremely practical-minded, down to the point of seeming detached sometimes. I rationalize unwelcome events on the thought that "that's what needs to be done" or "that's how it is" and move on.

6. I can't stand whiners and whining.

7. Growing up, I was considered tall, but this time around when we lived in India, I was shocked at the number of girls of this next generation that are so much taller than me.

8. I hate cooking the everyday stuff, but love making food for large gatherings of friends. New York style cheesecake is one of my favortie things to feed other people (and eat too, unfortunately) and I'm pretty good at it.

Yay! I'm done! I know I'm supposed to tag eight other people, but don't know if there is anyone left who hasn't been tagged. So if you are reading this and you haven't been tagged, consider yourself tagged.

Hey, sorry for visiting so late. And thanks for carrying on the tag.
You sound so much like my husband ! I am sure we would get along fabulously when we meet, since I seem to get along with him :)
