Getting to know me- AGAIN!!

Was tagged this bt ~Nm, who thinks the first person to do this tag will be Suki. But I know suki's having exams next week (do well, sweetie) and so, maybe I will do it first...?

Last Movie You Saw In A Theater:
hmm.. hmm.. hmmm... yeah- that far back- Chak De, I think...

What Book Are You Reading:
A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. A long time back, when we were compiling our reading list on Indian Writing, this was one book/author mentioned by many, that I hadn't read. am liking what I have read so far.

Favorite Board Game:
Scrabble. In spite of the fact that every time it ends in an acrimonious name-calling game between me and the husband.

Favourite Magazine:
No particular favourite. I read whatever is bought by others- Vanitha, Good Housekeeping (Mom), Outlook (Hubby), Stardust, Cosmo (my Beauty Parlour), Magic pot (Sonny boy)

Favorite Smells:
That totally unique smell of babies under a year old, the smell of the first raindrops wetting the earth..., fresh jasmine flowers...

Favorite Sound:
A dog's joyous, welcoming bark, Sonny boy calling me Amma..., Genuine uncontrollable laughter- anybody's :-D

Worst Feeling In The World:
The feeling of loss.

What Is The First Thing You Think Of When You Wake?
" Sigh! I wish today was a holiday".

Favorite Fast Food Place:
Because it's Sonny boy's current favourite- Mc Donalds. Tho Sonny boy prefers to call it The Fry Shop. Mac's advertising agency would be scandalised if they heard!

Future Child's Name:
Considering we decided on Sonny boy's name exactly half an hour before the ceremony, think this question is wayyyyyy too premature- we aren't even ANYWHERE near having a baby!

Finish This Statement. "If I Had A Lot Of Money I'd...”
Build myself a house with lots of land around it, and lots of trees, in beautiful unpolluted countryside so I could keep a dog, get 2 maids for the price of one, and have a driver to drive the spare car.

Do You Drive Fast?
My whole family certainly seems to think I do. So maybe yes.

Do You Sleep With A Stuffed Animal?
I wish I did. It certainly wouldn't want things early in the morning when all I want to do is savour the last few minutes of sleep. Sigh!

Storms-Cool Or Scary?
Cool- the ones that make you feel good about God's creations.

What Was Your First Car?
Mine - in my name- the Alto I currently drive.

Favourite drink:
Nothing like a drink of plain water, esp in this scorching summer.

Finish This Statement, "If I Had The Time I Would .....”
Spend it with my son and husband and mother.

Do You Eat The Stems On Broccoli?
If I ate broccoli, I probably would.

If You Could Dye Your Hair Any Color, What Would Be Your Choice?
'Raven black' hair always sounded so good in those fairy tales I read in my childhood. Unfortunately, on us Indian dames, it is just plain black hair! But right now, I'd settle for plain black tresses all over my head, without those ever increasing strands of grey here and there..

Name All The Different Cities/Towns You Have Lived In.
That I remember .. Madurai, Rameswaram, Kannur, Udumalpet, Sivakasi, Thalassery, Kozhikode, Cochin, Bangalore....

Favorite Sports To Watch:
NOTHING!!!!

One Nice Thing About The Person Who Sent This To You:
She's eninently likeable! :-D

What's Under Your Bed?
Sigh! Some toys (courtesy Sonny boy), newpapers (courtesy husband) Dust (courtesy lazy Mom who didn't clean today or yesterday)

Would You Like To Be Born As Yourself Again?
Sure thing. Only- a more assertive, less dumb, more patient, smarter Me.

Morning Person Or Night Owl?
Depends on what's to be done.

Over Easy Or Sunny Side Up?
Neither. Am not particularly fond of eggs 'cept in omelette or scrambled form.

Favorite Place To Relax:
Home.

Favorite Pie:
So long as its tasty, any.

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor:
Butter scotch. But anything, actually.

Of All The People You Tagged This To, Who's Most Likely To Respond First?

WIAN
Usha
Thinking Aloud

Happy weekend, folks!
