Tagged: 8 things you don't know about me

Tagged by The Mad Momma! I loved the idea of finding the odd one out. Have got 9 statements - one of them is untrue. Which one do you think it is?

1. I can't cook to save my life.

2. I first got drunk at age 16, on my aunt's homemade Christmas wine, and lay stretched out in the back of my parents' car, singing loudly and off-key all the way home.

3. I have eaten deep fried insects, sold in Bangkok as a casual snack.

4. I studied carnatic music for a year, and then my teacher suffered a heart attack and gave up teaching.

5. I have bungee jumped off the Kawarau bridge.

6. I can understand and speak 5 languages reasonably fluently - and hope to make that 6 as I get more proficient in Thai.

7. I love dancing to dhinchak Govinda numbers.

8. I didn't realise I was pregnant for 10 weeks and continued travelling on work, took a holiday in Kerala, even went to a water park and merrily slid down giant curly slides during that time.

9. I proposed marriage to Moppet's Papa.

I think Mad Momma has tagged everyone I could've tagged. So this is an open tag to anyone who'd like to take it up.

Oh, and please also give me props for my very first effort at graphic design - my header image! Maybe I should add a point 10 - I'm shameless? :-)

And the answer is:
While lots of you went for the carnatic music option, sadly it's quite true. As is not knowing I was pregnant for 10 weeks,
Kiran!

Kodi's Mom, I love you for being the only one who thinks I am ladylike enough to have waited for Moppet's Papa to propose, rather than jump the gun and ask him myself, but I'm afraid that's true as well.

SM, what to do, no one can make me groove like Govinda can! :-)

Noon came the closest - I did the bungee jump, but did not eat the fried insects.

And Tony, you of all people should've known better, having actually had to eat the stuff I've attempted to pass off as food!

:) that was quick work... but damn.. each of them is very believable... i thikn i'll go with carnatic music.

noon said...

I think 3 is untrue. Hmm.. may be 5?
Am totally envious of you if no 6 is indeed true!! So unfair!

karmickids said...

I'll follow MM and go with the carnatic music one. But I hope to god the ten weeks pregnant one was the real one...

Poppins said...

I'll go with #1, I'm positive you are a great cook..Everything else is totally believable.
And I love the header graphic thingy.. How the heck is it that I am the techie and my template is so boring? Humphf. I will work on it pronto - just you wait.

SM said...

Hey I don't think you dance to Govinda music. But, I have known to be wrong occasionally :)
Love the header, very moppet-y!

doorva said...

Well, we shared an apt for 3 months - i saw very little of you during that time and most definitely did not see you cooking.. so my bet is on No 1. :-)

The other candidate is no 4 - carnatic music, don't think that's your genre !

Orchid said...

Good job on the header..I am jealous!
1??

Poppins said...

Ok Re-re-re-read the post, and I'm now leaning towards #4. The heart attack seems a tad too dramatic.

Did you really do the bungee in New Zealand? *Burning with envy although I am too chicken to bungee jump*

Kodi's Mom said...

oh i'm no good at these guessing games...but lets say 9! am I right???

and hdr is right on with the theme!

Poornima said...

Number 1!!! I'z sure your Mom will totally support me on that one.... :-)) Still keep laughing about the "I'm not drunk! I'm just a bit wooszzy.." dialogue. You have to do a n "item" on that.... :-D

itchingtowrite said...

the drunk thing looks funny...

unpredictable said...

karmickids said...

To clarify, I meant I hope to God that the ten week pregnant one was the untrue one....and nice new look. I must shake off my sloth and do something nice for karmickids too....

Moppet's Mom said...

Oh, boy was this fun! Everyone was quite wrong though :-) Have updated the post itself with the answer.

noon said...

Oh man I got it right but wondering (no wonder I named my blog wondernoon) about no 5 didn't get me full points! Hey hey I am the mind reader - you shd give me 501! :))

Just like that said...

Only just starting to read you, but am dunping for the fried insects. Ugh! Sure you didn't...

Tony said...

Ugh!!! I can't believe I made that mistake.... Jeezzz... I somehow got it into my head that your sentence meant that you can cook... Bleargh... :-(( Can't think of any excuses to absolve myself, other than extreme fatigue... that too without even having a baby! *Thwack!* That was me giving myself a good whack on the head.
