Seeking 25 random secrets!

“Three can keep a secret, if two of them are dead.” as quoted by Benjamin Franklin.

--------------------------------------------------

Since I have been tagged by Spike and Ava for 25 random things about me and then by Udtahaathi for 25 secrets, let me just scratch the surface and give you some not-so-dark-and yet-random secrets of my life.
1. I was a NAGIN in my previous birth. I do believe in reincarnation.
2. I have 184320 hair on my head out of which 164312 are grey.

3. I am size 0 beneath all these layers of fat.
4. I am a drunkard. I consume 1.153 litres of water every day.
5. I once finished 4th in a running race and there were only 4 runners.
6. I have never been to a pub or a discotheque ever.
7. While in confines of the loo, my mind is at its sharpest! I remember all the bill due-dates, the pending phone calls and the unanswered mails. The moment I step out, I forget.
8. I have not visited Kashmir even once even though I was in Delhi all through the 70s and 80s
9. I still bite my nails at times. Sometimes I end up eating the skin around too :(
10. I cant sleep in a completely quiet surrounding. I need a fan whirring or a snore or even some light music.
11. I am scared of sleeping alone in an empty house. I switch my living room lights on in such cases.


12. The 15-year old tomboy is still alive inside me and surfaces every now and then to my utter horror.
13. Some days I crave for sweets so much, I eat spoonful of sugar… and hold on I am not pregnant!
14. I cry easily when I sense a situation getting out of control. Once I cried after an altercation with boss while my poor colleague didn’t know where to hide!
15. I once got caught by a bus conductor when I was travelling without ticket in a bus. I escaped using the famous girl-smiles-heart-melts technique
16. I can whistle with or without my fingers. Ha!

17. Deep down I am basically a KANJOOS, a hoarder who spends and then feels guilty.
18. I managed to burn fast-to-cook-good-to-eat-Maggie once! Last Sunday I successfully burnt the outside of my cake while the insides were still raw.
19. I used to love biting my hair when young. Even now, I fiddle with my hair when in deep thoughts.
20. During my teen years, while taking the national pledge “India is my country and all Indians are my brothers and sisters”, I used to skip the brothers part.
21. I am superstitious about auspicious-days and number 13
22. I can be quick witted at rare times and “duh” most of the times making me wonder if I am a case of multiple-personality-disorder.
23. I once was an avid collector of match-box covers!
24. The only subject I ever failed in my school times was Drawing and Arts thanks to a too-perfect teacher
25. I am not on Facebook or Hi-5 or Tagged or any such. I only exist in Orkut in a completely unknown avtar which is also sleeping since a long time.
----------------------------------------------
As per answers.com open secret means
An *open secret* is a concept or idea that is "officially" secret or restricted in knowledge, but is actually widely known; or refers to something which is widely known to be true, but which none of the people most intimately concerned is willing to categorically acknowledge in public.


P.S. My friend Vee has come up with our very own, common man's MovieManiax Awards 2008. With the heavy politics taking away the very meaning of awards, we sure need to voice our opinion and give credit where its due. Please do visit and vote.

Very witty and entertaining!! Good to know the child in you is still alive! Oh, and skipping the 'brothers' bit was hilarious. Now, why did it not occur to me ever?

Reema March 4, 2009 at 8:33 PM

Angel's Flight March 5, 2009 at 6:18 AM

Poonam March 5, 2009 at 10:02 AM  

This was the funniest 25 facts I have read. This line was the funniest:

I am size 0 beneath all these layers of fat.

And I too am scared sleeping alone, I sleep with lights on..I did it just this weekend after a longwhile.

And my kundli says I was a frog in my last inacrnation. Thanks God! there are no after-effects of it. :)

Came to your blog thru moviemaniax blog, where the dashbaord shows u as a referer. :)

workhard March 5, 2009 at 10:16 AM

Next time we meet, we MUST have a race- the loser/winner can treat the other to an ice cream.. Loved your list of secrets.:-)

Swati March 6, 2009 at 10:28 AM  

You forgot to write one !!

You have a great sense of humour !!

I laughed loud.

And you know, I boiled potatoes in pressure cooker without adding a drop of water. Don't ask about the result.

udtahaathi March 6, 2009 at 11:07 AM  

Looks like you are actually a size zero, matchbox collecting 15 year old hair biting skin eating un-sisterly tomboy, gradually buried inside the layers of fat and fear over time to become a sweet loving insipid water drinking cake burner, who badly need to install a computer in the loo and land up in a pub on an auspicious day.

*Shiver me timbers *

Cheers (to water) !
~uh~

Monika,Ansh March 6, 2009 at 11:19 AM  

That's a hilarious list. I had a hearty laugh. :)

couchpapaya March 6, 2009 at 8:39 PM

Vee March 7, 2009 at 4:22 AM  

6. I have never been to a pub or a discotheque ever. Leave it to me. My next Mumbai trip will ensure I take you out.

8. I have not visited Kashmir even once even though I was in Delhi all through the 70s and 80s. U better off, I was in Shimla for 5 years but never went to J&K

16. I can whistle with or without my fingers.ME TOO!! Yay! Ha.

23. I once was an avid collector of match-box covers! Now, that's fascinating. I thought only me, my bro, my sis and 5 of other friends did that as we used to play gambling using those covers, kinda playing cards..

Awww, now that was nice. I did not know you mentioned it and that khabri also did not mention it to me. Thanks! It's going great so far... Nominations are out btw, do check out.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
