Random Facts

I have been tagged by Raaga to post 8 random facts about myself...hmmm...it got me thinking. What would seem random in my life?? Anyways, without too much thought, here it is:

1. I am passionate about horses and dogs - no, I don't own either
2. I love to cook and am passionate about food photography
3. I once had my house burn down to the ground while I was a student. Lost everything including all my papers, computer...everything. The fire was so bad that a two-storey town home was converted into one big room with no ceiling! Even the refrigerator burnt down to nothing. Needless to say, I started over and in the middle of my final exams.
4. I have a freakish tendency to fracture my bones. I have broken my ribs, arms, ankles, pelvic bone, fingers, spinal cord and toe!
5. I have swum with dolphins, sharks and even a barracuda!
6. I maintained a personal diary (yes, the Dear Diary kind) for 17 years.
7. I love to laugh - the people who make me laugh are my husband, my daughter and Jay Leno.
8. I love learning languages but am no good at speaking them. I have learnt Russian, Sanskrit, Japanese, Spanish, German and Tamil. But I can only speak Tamil fluently. But I still try.

and here's the list of the chosen 8 who shall continue the chain:

Manisha - Indian Food Rocks

Nandita - Saffron Trail

Saffron - Saffron Hut

Meena - Hooked on Heat

Mark - Banker in India

Nupur - One Hot Stove

Sia - Spice Corner

Bee - Jugalbandi

There are rules too

* Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
* People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.
* At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
* If you fail to do this within eight hours, you will not reach Third Series or attain your most precious goals for at least two more lifetimes.

There's much more that we have in common than just the names. I have to meet you when I'm in town next.

Raaga - we definitely have to meet!!
Bee - please do it at leisure! :) Yup - but a house burning is kind of an extreme spring cleaning. So, good in certain ways! :)

Loved reading your random facts, Arundhati! You wrote a diary for 17 years??!! My attempt (in high school) lasted 17 days :D
Thanks for tagging me, but I did this "random facts" meme a few months ago already!

Arundathi said...

Nupur - Yeah I guess the diary thing has now translated itself into my blog! :) Though, obviously, a lot has to be edited out for the public!! LOL!

Nupur said...
