Tagged, AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This seems to be the month for tag's. Here's another tag, that i got while i was writing my previous one. This was gifted to me by Hari Vishnu and i returned the favour by givin my previous tag to him. This looked a bit easy at first, coz it wasn't that much to think about. I felt i'd do it in a day and that's what i did :). So without much delay the tag; it's about listing 8 items about various topics. So here goes :

Eight things I am passionate about:
1) My Family : My Dad, Mom and sister and i'd like to add one more person to this family very shortly. Err, about 3-4 years to be precise; if we don't experience many probs. If you've read my previous post u'll know the kind of probs i'm talking about.
2) My friends : They come next in the list, though most times they're the one's who help me out with various problems. Since i'm not yet officially married to the person i love; she'd also come in this list and she's among the most helpful friends i have. But then at times it's the other way round too meaning, she's the reason for the troubles :).
3) My rides : It'd be better to say i WAS very very very passionate about my rides. I still love to drive whenever some senior gets too helpful and does the favour of giving me his bike in the hostel here. I'm always a Biker and even though driving a car is fun i still love my Bike.
4) Books : This is my current passion, mainly coz i'm deprived of the pleasures of having a computer or a laptop. So i do spend a lot of time in the world of books. Have a huge list of authors and i usually enjoy reading thrillers. When i'm in the mood for it i enjoy some serious literature as well.
5) Quizzing : Though i feel i'm getting worse at this day by day, i still am very passionate about my quizzing. I still love to relive those moments when i was in college and won a few quizzes(very few thanks to better teams).
6) Multimedia: I'd like to copy this from Hari. He used this word and i'd say i too couldn't find a better word which brings together internet, music, movies and video. These are great passions of mine. I enjoy the time i spend watching movies and anyone who's come to my home or seen my collection of movies and songs would testify for that.
7) Food : Though this comes at the bottom of the list, it doesn't mean i don't give it sufficient weight. I'm among those who live to eat, rather than eat to live. Anyone who's seen me would surely agree to that :)
8) Blogging : Even though i'm not giving it as much time as i used to, i still would say that i'm very very passionate about my blogging. My friends at work would vouch for that, coz they know how much time i steal from them to use the computer for my blog. I'm not writing this to earn praise of sympathy, but i feel sad that i don't do justice to my blog nowadays.

Eight things I want to do before I die:
Well lot of things:
1) Be able to be there when my wife gives birth to our children.
2) Start a firm of my own and be a good employer.
3) Be able to fit into a size L t-shirt. That's a wish i'd love to make come true.
4) Have a Hayabusa, Ferrari and a Rolls Royce Phantom in my garage.
5) Fly a fighter plane and if possible gun down a few people from my last post.( i know it'd take someone like Ratan Tata to do so :), but then its a dream list)
6) Goto the Swiss Alps, Caribbean and Hawaii for my honeymoon and extended honeymoons.
7) Become a writer of repute and be able to live off my royalties :); now that's definitely a dream.
8) Earn a noble prize in Physics, Literature and Peace respectively, thereby being the 1st person to do so :)

Eight things I say often:
1) M***e
3)Oh F***
4)Naaaaaaariiiiiiiiiii(when i'm addressing a very close friend
5)Harami(New title for close friends in hostel)
6)MC, BC( for closer friends in hostel)
7)Sorry(yeah i say that a LOT)
8)Love you(only to one person)

Eight books I’ve read recently:
1) Catcher in the Rye
2) The Godfather
3) The Prophet
4) All quiet on the Western Front
5) Wheels
6) Atlas Shrugged
7) Love in the time of Cholera
8) The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Eight songs I could listen to, over and over:
1) Hotel California - Eagles
2) Nothing Else Matters - Metallica
3) Yaaron Dosti - KK
4) Kadhal Rojave - SPB
5) Aadat - Jal
6) Tum Se Hi - Mohit Chauhan
7) Devasabhatalam - Yesudas
8) Truly Madly Deeply - Savage Garden

Eight things that attracts me to my best friends:

1) That i'm a good problem solver.
2) They find someone who won't beat them down when they make fun of me
3) They will get free rides on my bike and car
4) They would get sound advice on anything under the sun.
5) They would get a patient listener.
6) They would have someone who'd be there anytime they want, any place they want.
7) I love them for whatever they maybe, even if they turn to be backstabbers.
8) We bitch about people whom we hate, and i am VERY good at that.

Eight people I think should do this tag:

1) Hari
2) Abhijith
3) Njaan
4) Freebird
5) Renji
6) Sreehari
8) Rohin

Ayyo! I was planning to disappear from the blogsphere for awhile when you drop this mean tag!

You have a lot of work to do, if you're quite serious about the wishes! Especially the last one!

Hari Vishnu said...
