Se7en and Awards!

First Award!! Yayyyy!!!

*Drum rolls*


“I’ve tagged you”, said she, Zainab, my new friend in the Blogosphere. I was overly joyed as this was the first time that someone had officially tagged me. Usually I lifted tags that I found interesting and did them myself.

As I visited her site and checked the tag I almost fell off my chair reading it. Not only was I just tagged, but I was given awards as well!! I am so honoured to receive them.

With hubby at the office and the kiddo sleeping peacefully in the other room, I wanted to jump up and down and do the headless chicken dance. But from fear of waking up the kiddo and wondering if the spell would break, I danced in my head and the world spinned for some time.

Well, that’s not just it. Some rules of acceptance of the award:

1. Thank those who loved you enough to bestow this gift.
2. Share seven (7) things about yourself.
3. Bestow this honor onto 10 newly discovered or followed bloggers – in no particular order – who are fantastic in some way.

I had already done this 10 secrets tag a long time back, but now let me add some more to it.

1. I used to hate Pizzas. I never had a pizza until I got married. Almost after a year of marriage hubby introduced me to pizzas and I took it up like a fish to swimming. Wonder now why I wasted so many years not eating it.

2. I am scared of lizards and spiders. They give me shudders. They make me feel creepy. Yuk.

3. At one time, I was a farily good dancer. I have learnt Kathak. But now, even a five minute dance makes me sweat and puts me out of breath.

4. I think I have the most unruly hair in the world. Some girls can manage to look absolutely stunning and comfortable with their hair down. But not me. If I let my hair loose, it somehow turns into a huge ball of mess and looks weird. I wanted long hair for myself, but that’s never happening. It’s the genes I think.

5. I love dogs. Of any kind. I even find stray dogs cute. My dad had promised to get me a puppy when he retired and I was happy that one day I would have my own pet dog. Little did I realise that I would be married by the time he retired. 😦

6. I believe in reincarnation and life after death.

7. I am not comfortable with high heels. I can’t walk straight and I tend to stumble and fall down. No, not even platforms.

And now to tag 10 people for this award and meme:
1. Garima
2. Leonnyes
3. Blessen
4. Smita
5. Sharell

Well, I could come up with only 5 and hence the tag is modified. 🙂
