A naughty spark tagged me and so here I am.

Rules are meant to be broken, aren’t they? I’ll bend some of ’em in due course. For now, here they are :-

– Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
– When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
– At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag.
– Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged.

Well … thought of cooking up a middle name for myself but then sticking to rule#1, i am using the one I have πŸ™‚ and it is KUMAR.

K: Attributing it to loads of complacency that has crept into my life over the years, this has been on a downhill journey. Calling myself a ‘Go Getter’ would raise a lot of eye-brows in my peer group today but nonetheless I would like to rekindle the “Killer Instinct” I once possessed when nothing but the best was my mantra.

U: What with the hairy experiments I do with the bush on my face. People around me have varied opinions on the same but i consider it “Uber Cool”. Be it the goatee, the french cut or the mustache n soul patch, I sport it all with elan!!

M: Did u know that 6×3, 6×3.25 and 6×3.5 are the standard mattress sizes available in the market and that .5 inches of a gap(mattress length being smaller than the bed ofcourse πŸ˜› ) is reasonable to deal with. Yeah … I have an eye for detail. I am “Meticulous”

A: Is the upcoming road trip to Leh/Ladakh and a desire to Scuba Dive someday not enough evidence to prove that I am an adrenaline junkie? I have never done paintball but October promises a shot at that for this “Adventure Seeker”

R: This is hard to confess but I have noticed that … well, I have memories of having felt misty eyed and feeling the agony when love suffers and my lips break into a smile when love triumphs and emerges winner. Am I a “Romantic”?

Now, a tad deviation … I am delaying tagging folks but promise will do it in due course πŸ™‚

This tag made me dwell upon my name for quite sometime and someday, I’ll do a take for … the namesake.

  3. Sam, thanq πŸ™‚
    well, i sheepishly acknowledge that whatever said was true to the best of my knowledge but still perfect is far from what yours truly is.

    Regarding the mattress aka ‘gadda’ … that was the most recent episode I could recall. I actually borrowed a scale and measured the bed :-O
    I can very well empathize with your cousin, have myself been subjected to similar threats and friendly advices but that is as far as it has gone … the designer do stays πŸ™‚

  8. Sreejith, thankq … i quite like it too πŸ™‚

    Sam, πŸ™‚ ‘ghar is kheti’ is the right phrase!
    Leh, well i still don’t have a pillion confirmed … so your ‘must go’ cud change to ‘been there, done that’, wot say? πŸ˜€

    Ani, thankq πŸ™‚
    To be precise, May ’08 although lots of logistics need to be worked out before that. Details will definitely follow … ummm … on second thoughts, m planning to start a travelogue … wot say ? πŸ™‚

  11. My roomy and me were two tempted souls during college, we got a jury the next day and here we were browsing the internet!! Have become a lil more stable now.. πŸ™‚
    Tell me those ways!! I make a fool of myself everytime I pillion with any of my friends.. πŸ˜›
    TELL ME QUICK!! πŸ˜‰

  12. Well, one should b engulfed in absorbing the beauty around and not look at the road ahead (although that cant b avoided on a cruiser coz the pillion is on a higher platform πŸ™‚ )
    … the driver must be trusted and all paranoia discarded before embarking on the journey πŸ˜€ No fall shall ensue then!

  13. Thanks but there are certain problems:
    – Gurgaon is not at all scenic, its totally concrete, though driving on the newly constructed fly-overs is pure pleasure!! πŸ˜‰
    – Non of my friends have a cruiser hence no fear of lookind ahead, that and I’d never get a chance to look ahead,thanks to my inherited short stature.. :-/
    – Trust my friends while driving: NOWAYS!!
    Solution: I take that drive in my own car!! (love to drive) πŸ™‚
    All happy!!
