Another Liebster

Out of the blue (well, nowadays, it's almost perpetually grey) some things just fall on your head when you didn't expect it. I guess that's how Newton felt. In his case, he was able to change the world. In my case, it just gave me another reason to smile. Thanks to Tanya Sehgal, of Coveted Dreams, who nominated my Whispers of Rain poetry blog, for the Liebster Award (there isn't a rule about not receiving the same award again, right?).

Just because I have been awarded this before shouldn't make the charm and appreciation any less, right? :)

Now, I've to answer the questions she's posed for me and state some random facts about myself.


Questions :

1. Which is your favorite movie? Unfortunately, (or fortunately?) I have no absolute favourite.At the moment, it is the hindi movie Cocktail.

2. Why do you blog? I absolutely love to write. Because it's an extension of myself, an ability to express myself in ways that I would not be able to do otherwise. I love capturing moments, and therefore memories, and having it sealed away for my own perusal and sharing with those who are closest to heart.

3. If one day, a fairy asks "Make a Wish !", What will be it ? A secret! ;)

4. What were you like as a child? I went through many phases of self-expression while growing, and they correlate somewhat to the circumstances I had experienced (very typical of child development, I know). I was always a dreamer, and a writer. I constantly had this hyperactive imagination, and was always making up stories and I was a bit of a boss, I was quiet but very talkative. I was a princess in my own made-up world, but I was the type who would be dressed up in pretty dresses and would still be found climbing trees and fences. I was a very happy child until certain incidents, and then I think I pulled into my shell for a very long time until I found myself again. I guess I was always fiercely independent, and that's still the case now, and yet I loved making people laugh, and smile, and I think that translated to a very quiet deep need to be nurtured and loved. That's also true to this day.

5. Love marriage or arrange, which one would you prefer? Love, always.

6. Your first priority if you become a millionaire? Making sure family needs were seen to.

7. Candle light dinner or Long Drive? Now, why can't I  have both? :P I think I would choose the dinner now, because it's just the season and mood...cold and blustery and just perfect for staying in and cuddling up.

8. Ice-cream or Black Forest Cake?  Ice cream! But, that also depends on the flavour. If it's chocolate or something too rich, then I might just take a slice of the cake.

9. Short stories or poetry ? Yikes. I think I would choose the former, there is always something I find extra appealing about narratives and relating to others stories, even if fiction. Poetry has its own beauty, yet sometimes might not be so fulfilling.

10. How many hours do you spend on facebook daily? Hardly any if at all. Facebook just... exists. It's like actually looking under the bed, you know that space exists, but it just gathers dust. :/  I do get to run into some great friends/sisters once in a blue moon, and when that happens it's like having a great slumber party with flashlights and heart to heart talks.

11. Cute or beautiful, what's your pick ? I'm both :P What can I say? *preens* LOL 


Random Facts about IQ:

1. I am wearing very dark blue nailpolish.
2. Jeans and a hoodie usually constitute my daily work outfit. 
3. I have just recently fallen in love with Lindor Coffee Truffles.
4. I don't know why, but despite me being a self-professed health freak, I have been indulging in junk food this week. 
5. I'm taking a brb right this very minute because I'm feeling the effects of the coffee I had this morning. Yeah I know you really didn't need to know that.
6. While I was drying my hands, I remembered a reason I loved the movie Cocktail, and it's almost a silly reason but it's just the type of things that I love - there was a scene with a bookshelf being shelved with books, and during one pan of the camera, I spotted one of my favourite authors books right there at the end.  This is the very same book I had recently loaned to a coworker.
7. I just yawned.
8. I love completing the daily crossword and sudoku on the train.
9. I shall be having pasta for lunch today, so we can all expect me to be sleepy mid-afternoon. *sigh*
10. I really did sigh out loud just now.
11. I'm thankful to Tanya but, really, I'm very glad this is the last fact I need to write. Phewwwwwww.
