Tagged by a co-weirdo

This tag passed by Anu, requires the condemned to mention 5 weird things about himself/herself and then make 5 others do the same.
I thought long and hard about my weird ways, and I found nothing. I almost concluded that I am the paragon of unweirdness but the following came to mind just in time.

I want to perfect juggling four balls. I can juggle three while running and I'm awfully proud of it.

I get recurring dreams about me being in a cottage that is surrounded by lions. Another rank nightmare that I used to get, was one in which I'm chasing an old lady who is just walking leisurely, while I'm running as fast as I can and yet, I can't catch up with her. There's another weird nocturnal phenomenon associated with moi. I have a double bed at home. I use one half to sleep and the other half for strewing clothes. Sometimes I find myself waking up in the middle of the night folding up the clothes almost in a state of unconsciousness. I bet it's due to a recessive compulsive-cleaning-disorder-gene that I inherited from mom.

I know the advertising folks at Pears have carefully positioned their soap as a woman/baby product, but your's truly uses it. It has nothing to do with getting in touch with my feminine side or concern for my complexion. I have an allergy that makes me sneeze my innards out if I use anything else.

I travel alone a lot. But I hate to eat alone. When I travel alone, I skip a lot of meals. I'm one of the least fussy eaters in the world. While I'm on eating habits, I should mention that I can live on Ragi mudde 3 times a day (ok not 3 but atleast 2) , 365 days a year. I also believe you can't ACQUIRE a taste for it. You have to be born into a ragi-mudde eating family.

I'm constantly guilty of some really silly prejudices. Like against people who read Mills and Boon, people who use sms language in mails, engineers who claim "this is what I wanted to do all my life", people who wear Che Guevara T-shirts, and some others I'm too scared to mention here.

I trust extroverts even if ....hey wait a minute I've mentioned 5 already. I have also rambled quite a bit in an earlier post.

I'd like to victimise
Jax - I really hope this will draw you out of a self-imposed retirement.
M.S - calls for another of your trademark staccatos dude.
Lyn, Kavs and Swathi - if you haven't done this already
Traaks - A guy who used to converse in fluent pig latin should have a lot to write, although I seriously doubt if he'll oblige.

And i thought I was the only one in the entire world who had recurring dreams (not nightmares) about lions prowling around. Except that the location keeps changing. Atleast once a month, for the past 4 years. Weird.

Anu said...

hahhaha....:)))
See, Didnt I say we could expect some interesting write up?
Now we have to get someone to analyse those dreams.. hmm... unable to catch up with an old lady.....:))

Che Guevara is sexy. TOI had an article on him, to be specific, the history of the much used picture of him ..

I love Mudde&Bas saaru/Swappin Saaru combi; Me a "gelf" born mallu ;-)

jax: wait till we see your post.

bananarana: Did you watch Savage Harvest when you were a kid?

Anu: My friends did have some interpretations. They were all kinky

Anon: whoa! You are an impostor or mutant. Either way, you should mention this fact when you do this tag.

-Gelf Mallu

Bananarana said...

You know what? I think i did. Is it the one where this family lives in Africa, in some Lion reserve kinda place and all of a sudden the Lions go crazy and begin attacking them? Except that I remember the movie as 'Roar'. Hmmm....

kavs said...

I was in real bad mood till I read your post. It's so funny!!

I think it's more apt if A agrees to do the tag for me. He will have more stories about my weirdness. Do you think I should risk asking him to do it? ;-)

Deppe said...

gelf mallu who likes mudde and che. do you realise you could be one of a kind?

Bananarana: Could it be possible that 'Roar' was launched as 'Savage Harvest' in Chikmagalur, because the plot seems exactly the same? Unless lions-surrounding-cottage is a genre by itself.

Kavs: You should ask A to do it. Tickle him if he doesn't oblige.

Swathi said...

i should say that we share two weird traits in common - 'hate eating alone' and 'against ppl who read MnBs' ?:)

now this tag wud make my job of the next rant easy.

(but i do use a lot of sms type of language in mails so the good thing is that i never mail u)
