8 random things about me

I was reading Alma’s blog last night and found out that we’ve been tagged. The meme involves spilling the beans about eight facts about yourself and here are the rules:

  • Each player must post these rules first.
  • Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
  • People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
  • At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  • Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

So here’s mine:

  1. I love to sleep. If you ask me what my hobby is, top spot would go to sleeping. Hubby calls it wasted time but to me it’s perfect for relaxation and recharging. I believe the world would be a better place if everyone gets enough sleep every night.
  2. I like Indian food but it does not agree with me. I’d be happily having Indian food for lunch and be miserable for hours after with an upset stomach and reflux. I finally decided I’d rather skip the delicious curries along with the misery and just try other cuisines.
  3. I once entered and won an essay writing contest in high school. The prize was a copy of Roget’s thesaurus, which I absolutely loved.
  4. My family didn’t own a television for several years when I was growing up. Instead, I amused myself by reading old literature textbooks left behind by a previous tenant.
  5. Teachers once entered me into a science and maths contest. The contest was only open to senior students who weren’t in the honour roll so all the smart ones weren’t able to join. I thought it very odd to discriminate against anyone on the honours list but I wasn’t about to tell the teachers how silly and stupid that rule was. I showed up without any arguments and got first place in the science category and second on the maths.
  6. I don’t like hot tea. My maternal grandfather and my parents have been encouraging me to drink it since I was young but they haven’t succeeded so far.
  7. I always thought I’d be with someone older than me but hubby is 1.5 years younger than me. He assures me nobody could tell anyway.
  8. My dad is a heavy smoker and I’ve been a passive smoker for half my life. I’ve tried smoking, liked it and thought that there’s a very real chance of me getting hooked so I stopped after a few puffs. I can’t stand the smell of smoke now.

And now, I tag YOU! If you do decide to respond to this meme, please leave a comment so I know to read your responses.

  1. @alma: Well, I seem to have a milder reaction to butter chicken but there’s still a reaction. I think my stomach’s gotten more sensitive as time goes by too. 😐

    Wow, maybe you should tip me some lottery numbers? Who knows, you could be our lucky charm too! 😀

    Smoking was never the “in” thing to do at our school so there was no peer pressure on my part. Rather it was curiosity on my part and my easy access to it. I’m just so glad I’ve quit even before I started.

    @phenomenonemone: Yeah? I’d be waiting for your answers to this on your blog then. 😉

  2. interesting! i’m all blogged out tonight, but i’ll do this tomorrow! 😉

    btw, i changed my blog name.

    see ya saturday night!

  3. really, u can’t digest Indian food? even butter chicken? that’s the only Indian food I like.

    i can relate to number 4. in my case we have a neighbor who admires me for my being “bright” 🙂 and would always ask me if I can play with his kids and watch TV with them. he also thought i was his lucky charm because he would ask me for jueteng numbers and would almost always win with those numbers i gave him. :d

    smoking is one of those things i tried in high school. i never really liked it but it was the IN thing. i stopped and never looked back.
