SEVEN DUNDERS OF MY WORLD

Wow, can't remember the last time I was tagged!

Actually, I do (he,he) and it was two years ago, see link here. This time, it is for Prats. Ah, the things I do for friends :-)
As a matter of principle, however, I will not pass on the tag!

Seven random and/or weird things about me:
1. Sometimes, I forget things I heard just a few minutes ago, but remember visuals/sounds/smells from the vaguest corners of my childhood. I remember the sight of my uncle saving me from falling out of my bed when I was a few months old.

2. Most of my occult days are pretty spooky when I think of them. Scary when you look at someone's palm and tell them they're going to die. And they do.

3. I used to be a chronic onychophagist. So bad I barely had a strand of nail on a finger at times. It has been two years since I was cured of it. I still do look at my toenails longingly sometimes..

4. I often think I'm smiling when it actually doesn't show even a bit on my face. As a result, people end up thinking I'm a grouch or a geek (or both) and I end up thinking people are unfair in branding me.

5. I get dead bored looking at pictures without people in them. Especially "scenery" shots! So if you've ever sent me an album of nature pictures you took when you were on vacation, I probably lied when I said "nice shots!".

6. I am obsessed with Microsoft Excel. I think it is the greatest tool known to mankind. I can sit for days at end with an excel worksheet to manage finances, birthdays, office work... Someday, I hope to use it to find a cure for AIDS.

7. I've always been big on collecting stuff, depending on the season's craze. Stamps, bus tickets, Indian coins, matchbox labels, marbles, joker cards, soda bottle caps, toffee wrappers, stickers, tazos - and now, condom box labels.

The smells and sounds that u can remember from a long ago....it is spooky I guess...cos I do it too....the parijatha flower fragrances from grandpa's garden just can't be erased..

Thos toenails can get a lil tough to reach after a certain age...so u must wait till then to stave off temptation...
Yes, when it come MS excel....you certainly are a .....how can you??? I can't even get beyond the frist word to understand it...maybe i'm just impaired...

Second, especially glad to hear about you being free of nail-in-teeth disease for two years.

Hi Vinesh

devikamenon said...

You mean you've abandoned your plan for World Domination through Excel?
How do you explain those countless hours of sitting hunched at your desk with 22 Excels open? How, I ask?
I'm not convinced. Cure for AIDS, my toe!

kuttichuvaru said...

Sudhakar said...

Someday, I hope to use it to find a cure for AIDS.

Vinesh said...

@prats: wow, you can smell stuff from the past too? cool, isn't it?

hey, what do you mean, gloves and hood when you see me? :-D

excel is everyone's friend. pet it, and it will wag its cute tail :-)

@thinking aloud: hey, read where it says "ive been cured of it" - hehe, thanks! oh, aren't we all weird in some way or the other?

@aarthi: nothing's funnier than the truth :-)

Vinesh said...

@serendipity: shhhhh, or i will tag you! :-D

@sandhya: im obsessed with it, not necessarily good with it :-)

Vinesh said...

@devikamenon: you raise questions that threaten to disrobe my meticulous alibi! i am creating a new xls now that will dispose...i mean reward you with riches.

@kuttichuvaru: hey, i'm not the only one that's allowed to be weird, hehe ;-)

@sudhakar: thank you for being interested...i accept monetary contributions to this worthy cause via cash, cheque, and credit card :-)

Jeevan said...

You stand different in looking at pictures, where I like scenery shots more without people! You smile beautifully buddy and about collecting, I mostly save tickets of anything from my first circus visit, chocolate covers, god’s pictures that was some times back and what ever attract me that may come from streets to garbage box :) Very nice tag.

Tys on Ice said...

ah, another occult man...grew out of it?...the things we do!

great to get to know more abt u...how many condom boxes hve u collected? :) ...i still got the unused one in my wallet...its formed a pattern on the leather...

Raghu said...

i hate excel! Because a lot of my potential customers seem to get back to me and say "hey we can manage that through excel... why do i need to buy your product?"

Damn excel! :P

Orange Fronkey said...

I dunno if I gasped and said "holy cow you still alive!" (i got bad memory)... but so here goes.. WHOOAAA he's aliiiiive.

anyway... lol cool post :P. I do remember lil details like you too with smell and all... oh and i tend to get those heavenly smells outta the blue... makes me think there's "GOD" or some sorta "nice ghost" standing next to me or something.. so weird!

Jo said...

No: 4

Whaaaat?? I have never seen a single photo of yours without that smile on your face. :-)

And I shall keep it in mind about the scenery photos. :-))

Vinesh said...

@jeevan: wow - you must have quite a collection yourself, buddy, especially from the garbage box, hehe. and thanks for your compliment. i think i smile only for pictures :-)

@tys on ice: i freaked out of it is more like it :-) i have about 14different condom box labels so far. not sure what to say about the unused condom pattern on the leather - :-D

Vinesh said...

@raghu: what is your product? i'm really curious to know..

@orange fronkey: wonder how many of our deja vu feelings are actually authentic, or it's just our mind playing games on us...

@jo: hehe, i think i'm more conscious while posing for a picture :-D

Raghu said...

surely isnt as big as solving the problem of AIDS! :P an ERP for education service providers is what I do. And when I show the reports and graphs, some of these morons tell me... hey I can do that through excel too! :P

Havent updated my website in a long while... but that should give you a fair idea of what the base product is like.

Vinesh said...

@raghu: thanks buddy.. will check it out..

Fathima said...

Same here for scenery shots - I want people in them unless the scenery is of a new place and I am interested in knowing abt the place
