Quirk-tag

These are the rules:
1. Link the person(s) who tagged you…Brocasarea
2. Mention the rules on your blog
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours...
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them…
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged..
Quirks
1) Cant stand to explain something to someone more than once. If they dont get it at the first attempt...I feel that they dont need to understand it. At work it sometimes becomes an issue.
2) Dont like my hair touching the ear. Dunno why - but head starts feeling heavy if it does.
3) Have a knack of remembering things. The head is always buzzing.
4) Like connecting unrelated ideas and concepts to create a funny situation. Sometimes results in atrocious PJ's which even surprises me sometimes.
5) If I have to travel or have an early morning meeting always get up before the alarm - no matter how late I have slept or how early I have to get up.
6) Being an architect whenever I walk into a new restaurant with friends - everyone is interested in the menu - I am more interested in how it is designed and detailed and picking the best spot to sit and enjoy. Its a quirk as I walk in looking at the ceiling first.
Now tagging:

:) nice to know things ahn...

well, abt that architect part,i think, one can't actually enjoy food unless the surroundings tone down to ur mood...

Ashu said...

great tag though i m not tagged, but many thanks for the sidebar promo....

cheers

Hiren said...

couple of very peculiar quirks ... :) i share that alarm waala to some extent ...

** You were a blue light special at K Mart, almost as good and a lot cheaper
lol ... doesnt matter how many times one reads calvin strips .... it makes you smile everytime :)

Solitaire said...

Ceedy,

Make sure you dont do number 6 with a girl if you are on a date with her. She might think you are even geekier than the software engineer and run away!

I can totally related with number 1. Also add "giving bhaav and footage". Cant keep asking people over and over again to eat, drink, feel welcome, come over, etc etc if a few times don't suffice.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

You sure have your own peculiar quirks just like any other person. Hope you can be more patient in explaining things to other people. Other people can be hard of hearing or they may not really have understood you in the first place. I think, there's no harm in repeating yourself to them instead of inviting miscommunuications which may prove too costly at times. Thanks for the post. God bless.

Princess Mia said...

aha I can relate to the last one as well, though I am not an architect but I still do that hehehe, u know where its coming from isnt it....so I can imagine u..

BTW, quirk is an old habit isnt it?

Princess Mia said...

shall do that on Sunday

ceedy said...

@d'sinner

yeah true...it has to be make one feel comfortable to enjoy a dinner....or for that matter anything

ceedy said...

@ashu

thanks!
you are already doing a big task coming up...so whats the point of tagging you when I know you will not be able to do it!

ceedy said...

@hiren

yeah man...I guess alarm wala trait sometimes is very helpful...

and calvin - woh to mera guru hai :)

ceedy said...

@solitaire

fikar not....

this is a quirk and I am aware of it...and quirks usually take precedence when the company is boring.....if it is someone interesting sitting across me...I will definatly focus on her....

and yeah so true about give bhav and footage.....jo aise hai woh mere saath hamesha bhuke pyase mar jate hai

ceedy said...

@mel

yeah thanks....I have been working on that...its not easy but have been trying...

if it is tough to make someone understand...I tell them give me sometime....I refresh and do it...

thanks

ceedy said...

@princess mia

haha....imagining a group doing the same...looking at the ceiling...bechare restaurant wala will be all confused.

and quirk is "A peculiarity of behavior; an idiosyncrasy"

ceedy said...

@comment deleted

thanks for visiting

ceedy said...

@princess mia

cool....lekin sunday to ho gaya??

Prats said...

You too??? I stand and stare at the ceiling too as I walk in....funny how even the walls of a restaurant have that effect on me....and then I guess I do that in the restrooms of five stars too...don't know why?? :(

Some of your quirks sound quite normal to me.. ;) hehehe

Take care...hope things have easened up at work?

ceedy said...

@prats

heheh

so its probably our training i guess to check everything....how things are put together....
and yes bathrooms and walls too....but as I was telling Solitaire above who warns me that if I keep doing this with a date she might run away....it all depends on the company you are with too....

yeah work has eased a little bit....you know how it is with deadlines, clients and sudden death matches

Prats said...

You too??? I do the same thing too....but look at the walls too while I walk in...adn I never thought it was crazy :D ...
So are you busy keeping the hair away from your ears now????
Hope works been easier on you now?

Ashu said...

thats wrong conclusion sir, i wud do on new blog oor later :(

Solitaire said...

Hahahahaha...comment deleted..thanks for visiting...hahahahah!

(¯`•._.•[Raaji]•._.•´¯) said...

My head feels heavy if i wear anything on it.. whether it is a clip or a cap-- it hurts :-)

I can so relate to your number 5 :-)

Cheers!

Princess Mia said...

Ankur said...

hehe

Cheers!!!

~nm said...

I share no. 6 with you although am not an architect myself :)

--xh-- said...

i will take up teh tag soon :) nice quirks.. i am guilty of 4 and 5, and will be lifting 4 from ur post.. :P he he he

ceedy said...

@prats again...

yeah I am getting me hair off oy ears almost every third week....

ceedy said...

@ashu

its not about conclusions...well will remember next time and I did see my little man satish did tag you...so why worry!

ceedy said...

@-xh-

Cool - take it when you have time....

#4 I can imagine you doing that...your blog does show it sometimes :)

ceedy said...

@~nm

Cool....well I am happy that someone outside of architecture/design also does this...Princess Mia also confessed to it and two other architects Prats and Cinderella shared the same quirk

ceedy said...

@ankur

Man as I was telling Solitaire above...this depends on the company you are with....plus can expect you to look at the menu - usme to koi shak hi nahi :P

Do the TAG when you can bro and congrats....RR - did ROCK

ceedy said...

@neeku

Are baba - I did - was surprised you got my Udaiput comment and not this....aa to blogger kaka no vak che!

its fine if you have done the TAG...no worries....

ceedy said...

@pavi!!!!!
Ok first....I think I had told you when we had that "incident" that I would not care to explain - as many a times I just do what I feel is right....

but here on Blogger you are one of the few people I like to have these conversations with - because you do share unbiased and unprejudiced arguments....which are a rarity....

so dont worry...will be glad to explain you stuff :)
and since we had that discussion of the new...I will explain this in detail

GOD's INC post is a assemblage of these weird news that I read all over.....but instead of putting them into a simple straightforward write up....I try to play with the words and sentences....
a favor...since V reads news....can you ask him to reas the last God's Inc Post and see if it makes sense to him....

and yes I get up early - usually 7.00 and am at work by 8.30

ceedy said...

@sutta

Done...I was waiting for you to include me in your team...you already have an actress waiting in the rungs here ;)

and are you reading the other blog "shorts" - maybe I can be part of your script writing team too!!!

and back from bhopal!

KP! said...

"knack of remembering things"
lend me ur brain will ya?

I hardly remember things....lolz

ceedy said...

@princess mia

are you did not get the humor I guess....so the weekend was stressful....huh!!!

do the tag when you can.....

ceedy said...

@cinderella

heheh expected that response from you....Prats who is also an architect had the same reaction!!!!

we are doomed I guess :) always looking ahead :P

ceedy said...

@carolinagal

heheh...you know what I was a teaching assistant for two years and honestly good at it.....guess then I explained it in such a way that there were not many who asked questions!!!

heheh - guess it goes back to my school days - since a child had to keep the hair short!!!! glad someone else shares it!

ceedy said...

@ashu

will check the crush post tonite....had been away for the weekend...howz it coming along?

ceedy said...

@radhika

heheh - luckily is hasnt happened....places where the tables are directly in front are smaller places with nothing to look at and restaurants with good decor has a waiting area

thanks!

ceedy said...

@jaydip

welcome the suggestion - thanks! will do with immediate effect....

and welcome here!

ceedy said...

@g-man

hehe with the hair thing - i guess we who read a lot have to have the head light!
well from your description you must be a hyper guy like me always fidgiting....

ceedy said...

@gunj

thanks...

ceedy said...

@day dreamer

isnt is better to be thought about as anything and not nothing!

well y not share that fun on your blog..

ceedy said...

@raaji

glad to know...that you relate to the heavy head!

and #5...well I guess you must be all "on the go" kinda person

cheers!

ceedy said...

@solitaire

glad you enjoyed and caught that....and you never know right...kal agar "comment deleted" ek khatarnak comment likhe aur kahe - I thought of you as a friend - WHY are you ignoring me?

g-man said...

o yea, hyper fidgety :) ^5 dude

ceedy said...

@g-man


heheh
^ 5 both hands!

and did you reach kerela or no!!!!
cause I also heard that a piece of a cape from some flying man...was found on the cross in Vatican City1

g-man said...

vatican city? wow, i must've been drunk senseless if i was there. the pope got a restraining order and i can't go within 2 cities of him any more :| so shhhhh! if the feds find out it was me, i'm done for!!!

Phoenix said...

At the ceiling? Seriously! :P
Waise I do the remembering to many things bit too...it's weird but keeps stuff popping in side :P

ceedy said...

@g-man

I am quoet about it bud...but you did leave a trail...and being drunk I guess you did not switch on your stealth mode - so are caught in their satellite images...

now you have to probably go into hiding :)

and I can talk to pope on your behalf if you want ;)

ceedy said...

@phonenix

long time - how have you been...

yeah ceiling seriously and not only me....4 others above do the same...and two are not even architects

Satanic Angel said...

oh my architech cousin does tat too..infact he does it everywhere we go and makes it a point to point out some mistakes to me and i jus nod in agreement hehe i dont get any of his shit!
lol@ the c&h strip

Sutta said...

Actress? Haila kaun? :O
Maybe I can go for some casting-Ouches. :P

And Yes! I do need to catch up on your other blog. Sigh!!

Back from home. Just gave interview for Whistling Woods. Its a film school (if you've heard about it). :)

ceedy said...

@sutta

I thought solitaire ko lene ka wada aapne kiya tha!

yeah bhai please update yourself on the other blog...maybe just maybe I have a new career and you are holding it up!!!

Is it the Subhash Ghai venture...if yes..I have heard about it....best of luck

ceedy said...

@satanic angel

hahaha

architects are weird people I guess.....

and lol at c&h any day :)

Sutta said...

Oh Haan Solitaire bhi hai. :P
We can definitely jam over some story sessions. ;)

AND YES! Subhash Ghai wala. Thanks. :)

Solitaire said...

@ Sutta,

Did you forget about ME????????
I am telling EVERYONE about your film-making abilities and ventures and this is what you did?! :(

Accha sila diya tune mere something ka.

Nahiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!
Yeh nahi ho sakta!
Yeh sab dekhne se pehle main andhi kyon nahi ho gayi!

Sutta said...

@ Solitaire
Holy Shit!!
You didn't go blind na? Phew!! Coz I haven't thought about a plot with a blind girl as of yet! :|

You know its like, umm.. there are too many females interested. So its like.. umm.. it gets hard to remember the capable ones you know. :P

Don't worry we'll probably sign a bond sooner o(e)rr.. later. :P

J said...

What was point 1 again??
lol!!

When I go to any restaurant, i'd only be interested in their cocktail menu and the smoking section.

And sleep yeh, when I set the alarm i wake up early and when I don't I just oversleep.

So, what was point 1 about?

Cinder-Single said...

Ceedy! bless You heart, I think you have it in for me!! I am the one that asks over and over how to do something or either, what is it you just said? LOL!!!

No, I have very little blonde moments! I cannot remember anything unless I write it on a post it, or in my phone! I liked learning more about you mate!!! OH AND I AM BACK!!!!! HAHA, Vegas misses me already tho!.

Shalom
Nehya!

Cinderella. said...

LOl !!!
Hell yeah !!!

Looking upwards..

brocasarea said...

nice ones....u have an internal clock with in u!!...
and abt architect thing.u seem to be deeply involved and dedicated in ur work:)

--xh-- said...

done with it, bro.... :)

ceedy said...

@sutta

ok let set a date in our busy schedules :P for a story session!

and really best of luck dude....

ceedy said...

@solitaire and sutta

hope you guys sort out your confusion!

ceedy said...

@j

what did you ASK...huh!!! :)

hehe you are the second one who said that - its menu and drinks!!!

and I hardly sleep

and what did you ASK!!!! *getting bugged* ;)

ceedy said...

@cinder

welcome back...so did you win a lot of moolah or when the victory siren went on the slot machine - you had a blond moment and thought it was a fire alarm and scampered from there !!!!!

Good I am useful to someone ;) I have it for you---yaay!

and about those blond moments - what will be funny is taht you do write it on a post it and stick it somewhere but voila....forget where you did it!!!!

ceedy said...

@cinderella


yeah...you are right - look upwards at HIM for help to make our lives better ;)

ceedy said...

@brocasarea

yeah the clock never goes into a full sleep mode tho

and architect...have been doing this for last 16 years now...including college....it is my life and I am dead serious and enjoying every moment!

ceedy said...

@-xh-

will check it out right now!

aneri_masi said...

1) very bad, very bad. you know it hurts the other person (i have been at the receiving end of this, and its not cool at all!) patience badhaao, bhai.

2) hahahaha :) i get that feeling if my hair is oily!

3) lots bees in your head!

4) i guess this is related to point 3?

5) me too...same thing. actually, i wake up before the alarm goes off everyday, and simply wait thinking, yeh baj kyun nahi raha!

6) i feel this way abt photography, i just look at anything and everything thinking, will this make a good pic?

ceedy said...

@aneri

1) Its not that I dont try...but when there are deadlines...and you have explained over and over again and still the MISTAKE is there..and when I have to take care of them besides my work....its frusstrating...and In real life you wont bleieve it but I am very quiet...mostly masti and dhamal but only with people I know...or else I keep to myself....

2)Ok...cool

3)& 4) yeah you are right they are connected...ab kya kare!

5) I remember your post on that...it sucks right...

6)Good then photography is no longer a hobby...its becoming passion...happy clicking...

Ashu said...

Ankur left a crush dedication for u....check

Satish Bolla said...

already 86 comments!!! that too with the chote in the list!!!!!!!!
very bad, arey, satish... wake up man. sab log aish kar rahe hain aur tu toh office mein gadhe kaa kaam kar rahe ho.
bhai, i can relate myself with the 1st quirk. love to look at the face of the listener when am explaining something. this was the sole reason why i gave up the lecturer post in an engg college when i was desperately in need of a job. after all, it's wrong to spoil the future of 60 odd people at a time na?

Joy said...

I check the ambience of a restaurant. I thought it was more characteristic of a gal than a guy. But ofcourse being an architect, it is not surprising that you see all these. I share point 5 with you. Hey I didn't realise you write in your both blogs regularly. Will check both in future.

ceedy said...

@satish

well it seems you take the crease only when the stage is set!!! it will be nervous nineties after these two comments

and you are a gadha - ab meh aapne muh se kya kahu :P

hahaha at your comment - spoiling the future of 60 people...kash mere kafi professors ko yeh akal hoti....

ceedy said...

@joy

well for me I check a lot of things...its just second nature...it is a learning experience sometimes as when designing this is a database I can use to make it better or replicate the experience....

:) at point 5

and yes I do update both blogs - this one almost once a week and the other - since I have to think :P....once a month...thanks!!!

aneri_masi said...

over and over ke baad bhi if they don't get it, then its understandable. In your post you said "If they dont get it at the first attempt..." that's what I was talking about. More than once to banta hai samjhana :) And I guess you do, so all cool :)

Cinder-Single said...

HAHA!! I had a lot of blonde moments! but I did not let anyone see to many of them!!

I had a great time, thanks for asking.. getting ready to go on another trip! (hopefully)

Satish Bolla said...

Ankur said...

ceedy said...

@ankur

Deepali said...

The weirdest is the hair thing. Otherwise its not so bad :)

ceedy said...

@deepali
heheh....ab kya kare :)

vishvsambyal said...

aaha... i find quiet sum things similar...


expailing once..then when i do that ppl tend to think i am a hard ass...but i will be better of that u in the army where everything is supposed to be said just ONCE...

about the hair..yes me too but i guess it has t do sumthing with my mil school cumpulsory crew cuts... i cant have my side hair touching my ears..i get like crazy when that happens...

about sleep yes any moment i sleep in the night i am sure to get up at 5 next day without alarms... albeit with red eyes...maybe cause of that damn barding school bell

and yeah about u noticing ur arcitecture passion in even resturants...i gusess u too are passionate about it like i am for the army..

gr8 to knw more about u
