10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1: The Countdown Tag

Ten things you wish you could say to people right now (don't list names):

1. You’re way too big for your boots, missy!
2. Would you STOP asking me what to do? I’m not the professional!
3. Phew, your breath smells! How long was that rat dead when you ate it?
4. I don’t think anybody here actually respects you.
5. Stop going on about how much weight you've gained – you’ve not! You're just showing off your perfect figure!
6. You’ve no idea how much I miss you.
7. I wish you would not shove your wealth in my face.
8. I wish I could be like you.
9. Talk less, do more. Actually if you’ll just stop talking, I’ll gladly do it all.
10. If only I’d had the opportunities you did as a child.

Nine Things About Yourself:

1. I love straight hair. I’ve always wanted straight hair. I had it straightened once, in Singapore, and now that I know how utterly beautifully straight hair behaves, I want it even more!
2. I like to read books which have sequels, in sequence. The one series that I read out of sequence was The Chronicles of Narnia. Started with “The Silver Chair” because at that point I didn’t know it was part of a series.
3. I go silent when I am upset or angry.
4. I like my mouth. I think it’s the one good feature I have.
5. I hate clutter on my work desk.
6. I’m very choosy about the books I buy new.
7. I adore looking through charity shops for books.
8. I’m never sure that my writing will amuse others.
9. I love jilebis.

Eight Ways To Win Your Heart:

1. Do little things to show you care for me (no diamond rings, thanks).
2. Make me laugh.
3. Be interesting and chatty.
4. Compliment my embroidery/painting - but be sincere. I can tell if it's not real admiration.
5. Name your baby after me (Note: This hasn’t happened yet but I live in hope)
6. Listen instead of interrupting.
7. Enjoy my cooking.
8. Dont crowd me - physically or otherwise.

Seven Things That Cross Your Mind A Lot:

1. I wish somebody would pay me to sit at home and read books.
2. I should have been born rich!
3. Why cant I have cute dimples?
4. Am I doing the right thing?
5. Get a move ON! You're driving at walking pace!
6. Thank god I dont have to work weekends.
7. We've GOT to live somewhere else, this country's getting impossible!

Six Things You Wish You Never Did:

1. Missed Spanish classes.
2. Buying those shoes. What was I thinking?
3. Snapping at my mother when I was irritated with something/someone else.
4. Sitting through those "bride hunting" occasions when I really didnt want to.
5. Been mean to my sister and brother when we were growing up.
6. Kicked the door - ouch! It only added injury to insult.

Four Turn-Ons
good choices. why josh lucas in particular, he was good in sweet home alabama, but have not seen him in much apart from that

Meera: Nothing wrong with this country other than taxes and cost of living. But it's only a thought, okay? :)

Um, bride hunting. Guys looking for brides. They'd come home with their mummy and daddy and look at you. Ugh. :) I wasnt looking for a groom!

Why Josh Lucas in particular? He's soooo adorably cute - dimples, voice, smile and all! I fell in lurve with him in Sweet Home Alabama, and I've seen him in a couple of other movies too... one a sci-fi sort of movie where he's a pilot (cant remember the name). The other was a remake of The Poseidon Adventure.

Good ones! Jilebis are my favourite too. As for Narnia, I too didn't know that it was a series, until quite recently.I read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe first and still like it the best.

Shyam said...

Lak: Did you? I loved The Silver Chair best because I fell quite hard for Puddleglum. What a lovely character he is! :)
