I confess...

I have been conferred the Honest Weblog Award by KPJ chechi. This means a lot as I trumpet from every available platform that one must be honest at ones blog. Someone heard my trumpet at last! :p

So thank you Ma’am. Mucho honored!!

Rules of the tag:

This award is bestowed upon a fellow blogger whose blog’s content or design is, in the giver’s opinion, brilliant.”“When accepting this auspicious award, you must write a post bragging about it, including the name of the misguided soul who thinks you deserve such acclaim, and link back to the said person so everyone knows she/he is real. Choose a minimum of seven (7) blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Or improvise by including bloggers who have no idea who you are because you don’t have seven friends. Show the seven random victims’ names and links and leave a harassing comment informing them that they were prized with Honest Weblog. Well, there’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. List at least ten (10) honest things about yourself. Then pass it on!

So I confess to almighty God and to you my dear blog pals that what I am about to reveal is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so please don’t strike me dead God, if it is not.

1. I am terrified of sharp and pointed objects like Knives and Needles. But I love cooking…so I am the Brand Ambassador for Band Aid.

2. I cannot hate anyone or remain angry at someone for long. As I kid I used to get frustrated at my inability to hold a grudge forever. I dreamed of working myself to frenzy and taking revenge. Now I thank god that I didn’t plot dark revenge against the kid who took my beautiful pink eraser, pencil box, water bottle, homework etc. Someone rightly said “Don't Sweat the Small Stuff - and it's all small stuff”

3. I am a walkaholic and musicoholic. I can walk for hours listening to music.

4. I can bear cold but not heat. I plan to retire to the hills.

5. Blogging is a big stress buster for me.

6. I am not a feminist.

7. I get blog burn if I hang around blogs…including mine too long. Don’t ask me why. I rarely open my blog page and if I do it is only to reply to comments or publish comments.

8. I sleep like a log and am up bright eyed and bushy tailed in a trice. No lingering in the bed for me unless I am sick.

9. Kissan Orange squash is my comfort drink and moms cooking my comfort food. I love eating Milkmaid!

10. I have never worked under a manager. As a communications professional I have always reported to CXO’s. They are the nicest people to work for. Mature, always busy or traveling and let their team takes their own decisions.

Anyone who wants to wash dirty linen in public may please take up this tag. I badly want to point fingers and laugh rudely at you.

Hey me too a walkaholic, especially long evening walks. :) I can bear heat but not cold, the effects of living in a humid tropical spot. Kissan Orange squash -yuck; Milkmaid -yummy yummy.

Btw, since everyone else did the tag, now you can say things like "anyone who wants can take the tag". hee hee. Now that's why they say 'never be tardy in doing tags'.

2 1/2. i am a walkaholic too!

Karthik Sivaramakrishnan said...


Ditto@4. Actually, I enjoy cold weather!

Rockus said...

2 and 3 same for me!Sometimes I wish I really could hate people with a passion!

scorpiogenius said...

think again Silverie lady! You still can live at 40'C but not at 0 degrees. :)

silverine said...

Mathew: Thank you! :)

Photogenic devil: That was so sweet! Thank you! :)

Thomman: :) I can walk anytime provided it is not sunny.

Sandeep: "I am not a feminist either" lol!!

Karthik: Lots of hot blooded people here! :p

Rockus: I agree it is very frustrating!

Scorpio: I would faint at 40 degrees and I have done that! :) I have experienced cold below -14 and it was no big deal! :)

I am a newbie to this blog world and among all blogs i read uptil now, yours has been a stand out!
Great work !

Hmm. Am a nit of a walkaholic myself, but not necessarily a musicoholic. I've walked for hours with or without music. Sort of a stress buster for me. Impervious to changing seasons, though I haven't had to face sub-zero temperature yet. Reads a lot of blogs, so a complete opposite on that. That wraps up the similarities (or dissimilarities). Had done the facebook 25 Random Things Meme awhile back. So, I guess I'll give this tag a skip. :)
