Captain I-tag

Tagged by Cinderella. This is all bout the "I" that meets my eye - in short looking at myself and well finding out which nuts and bolts need tightening, which spare parts needs oiling and which are just fine the way they are. So here goes....

I am : Lost In Translation
I think : More than required
I know : We are all perishable so make the most of this given moment
I want : to be someone who people look upon in a good way
I have : I "think" (see again) to be the one I "want"
I wish : Life could be a little simpler to comprehend
I hate : My lazziness
I miss : My family and Bombay
I fear : Claustrophobic spaces
I feel : Life has more to offer than what we perceive
I hear : All kinds of sounds
I smell : Good food
I crave : Food from a certain place in Bombay
I search : Things to do constantly
I wonder : Rarely - make people wonder usually
I regret : One small thing
I love : Travelling and exploring places
I ache : When I move my lazy muscles
I am not : always sure of what I am about to do but do it anyways
I believe : Someday all new borns will be embedded with a chip that will interact with satellites for everything that we do today and have seperate gadjets for
I dance : Whenever I hear foot tapping music
I sing : Only in the shower
I cry : Sometimes
I don’t always : Confront
I fight : My craving for sweet stuff
I write : When in the mood
I win : dows not mac
I lose : All the time with kids
I never : Can approach someone upfront
I always : Love to be jovial
I confuse : Everyone who meets me for the first time
I listen : Nowadays to certain people
I can usually be found : Doing something or the other
I am scared : To loose the power to discern
I need : A new car
I am happy about : Able to do many things I want to
I imagine : The Built Environment (thats my job!)

I tag two people who I would like to know more about : Hiren and KP

Solitaire said...

I win: dows not mac..

Haha! Quite punny!

I listen: nowadays to certain people.

So previously you did not or listened to more people?

I fear: claustrophobic spaces.

You can be claustrophobic. Not the spaces!

Sorry not been around much. Will catch up later.

*~*{Sameera}*~* said...

Nice replies!

Noushy Syah said...

Agreed with others..interesting to know more about yourself.

..ok, I sing in the shower and in the comfort room..lolz!

'I confuse : Everyone who meets me for the first time'....emmm exactly, coz you definitely make me confused!!

Noushy Syah said...

p/s I'm neutral and enjoy the best match in the Euro08 but I love France to win but unfortunately they've lost...thus don't mind either the Dutch/Germany/Portugal to win...:)

(pay attention more to the team with Chelsea's players are!)

Friendly Stranger said...

Hey there,

Thanks for d comment....
Juz dropped in to say HI!

brocasarea said...

@ ceedy..of course!:P

ceedy said...

@solitaire

*So previously you did not or listened to more people?*

I still do not listen to a certain group of people....had to listen to "more" people - when they tried to instill knowledge....

*You can be claustrophobic. Not the spaces!*
Say I used poetic license here...
logically I mean claustrophobia inducing spaces...

and welcome back!

ceedy said...

@sameera

thanks!

ceedy said...

@noushy

Cinderella. said...

Yeah...

spaces here and there, within and about.
Spaces that make you scream and shout,

Ok ! I just made that cheesy stanza up !!!
