Weird me ... tag

Tag time again … this time Aryan’s mom has tagged me to reveal 7 random / weird things about myself.
Disclaimer: I am NOT a weirdo … pls don’t stop visiting my blog after reading about the weird me.
So here goes:

  • I am a very emotional person … there are some “special” songs which remind me of some people dear to me. The moment I hear these songs, tears flow down my cheeks liberally … irrespective of the situation / mood I am in. Even before I realize it, I am already sobbing!!! Interestingly I come across as a very strong person in office!
  • Growing up, I had this unique gift where in I subconsciously (during sleep) learnt stuff I intended to learn when being awake … it could be a memorizing a poem, my lines for a drama or points for a elocution / debate competition. I’d read through the script just a couple of times before going to bed and surprise … by dawn, it was all in my head!!!
  • I never went to theatre to watch movie for a period of 10 long years … it all started with me trying to test my temptation from going to the theatre. We, as a family would go and watch movies in theatre quite often. It would usually be on a Saturday for the show at 8:30pm. The chosen day and time ensured we got family outing and did not have to compromise on our studies. One fine day, I decided not to go for no particular reason …. And ended up not going for the next 10 years. Never once did I miss the theatres. (in fact even now I am not very fond) But I continued to watch stuff on TV and was quite update on movies!!
  • I have this habit of writing down multiplication tables in the reverse order all the way from 25 to 1. Whenever I find time, be it at a bus stop, doctors clinic or in the train / plane I start writing the multiplication tables.
  • I have a clock system within my body … if I decide to get up at a certain time, even before the external alarm goes off, my body alarm wakes me up. The time setting can be anywhere from 5 mins to 5 hrs … it just works. This has helped me a lot … especially during my student days. I would decide to rest my body for 10mins and go for a nap and after 10mins felt very relaxed and refreshed.
  • I wasn’t too fond of shopping growing up … in fact I can count on the times I went to shop. All my clothes were hand picked by my mother until I got married.
  • I hate hate hate dressing up … I put on very minimal make up (lipstick and kajal is make up for me). I am glad BP hates make up just as much as I do. My mom and my sister are quite big on the make up and we have had several arguments on this topic!

    Now any one reading this is welcome to pick up the tag!!!

Hi, Cantaloupe's Amma. My first, no second visit to your blog.

No. 2 must have come in mighty handy in your school and college years.

I remember studying just before bed-time and then dozing off on the book instead of the pillow. I used to joke to my classmates that the lessons transferred themselves to my head.

With you on 1 and 4. And also somewhat similar to you on 'learning during sleep'. For me I used to get soultions for problems in my sleep, which I don't used to get with hours of head breaking awake :)Loved reading your quirks :)

@mummyjaan: Welcome ! You bet No.2 came in handy ... but I was not always banking on it :)

@Aryan: Yep ... I have been writing tables since I was 4 or 5 and the habit has stayed with me so far.

@mnamma: Wow ... we have quite a few things in common!
