Wan, Too, Thee, Foe, Fie

This is a quick and fun tag, and it's been passed on to me by at least FIE bloggers that I can remember. So Parul, Kiran, PG, BangaloreMom, and Gauri: here we go

The rules:
Post 5 links to 5 of your previously written posts. The posts have to relate to the 5 key words given (family, friend, yourself, your love, anything you like). Tag 5 other friends to do this meme. Try to tag at least 2 new acquaintances (if not, your current blog buddies will do) so that you get to know them each a little bit better. Now don’t forget to read the archived posts and leave comments.

Family:
I take after my father. I look like him, talk like him, and think like him. I know him, because in many ways, I am him. My mom is different. Soft-hearted, sensitive, and slightly timid. So different from my father. So different from me. I loved her - she's impossible not to love - but I did not know her....
Friends:
It is the season for farewells, here in Bangkok, since most company moves are timed to coincide with the end of the school term in June. Several of Moppet's little friends from our building are moving this year - by end July, they will all be gone. Moppet is too young to understand or care, but these kids have become my friends as well and I will miss them...

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,...
My love:
It is a pleasant evening in November. The air smells crisp and fresh, so different from the city air they have been breathing for so long. They are sitting side by side on the verandah looking out at the moonlit lawn...
Anything else:
This is a tough one. Because anything else mostly means Moppet, I have practically the entire year's worth of posts to choose from, and there are several favourites. So I'm going to break the rules of the tag for this last part and link to 3 posts in this section.

This is my girl:
I'm big on planning. I'm always planning - my day, stuff to do on the weekend, my next holiday, my life. The fact that nothing, NOTHING, in my 28 years of life has gone according to 'plan' doesn't bother me. I'm a plan-o-maton. It's what I do. So when I found out that I was pregnant (totally not according to plan!), after the initial hysterics,...
Moppet's first word:
Last evening while I was changing Moppet's diaper and chatting to her, she looked me in the eye and said, clear as a bell: "Mama" Trumpet blasts sounded in my head; in the distance, a choir of angels hit the high notes....
Barney's tragic story:
Far, far away, in an ancient land once called Siam, there lived a little girl. Sixteen moons after she was born, a google-eyed oracle sent warning that the child was a small yet potent version of an erstwhile dark lord, but her parents paid no heed....

That was fun! I think I must be one of the last people to do this tag, so I'll only tag a couple of bloggers I've just started reading. Guys, if you've already done this one, just ignore it.

Mona, over at A Baby Story
Mandira, who blogs at Churningthewordmill
Null Pointer, of Thelastbyte
