50 Random Things About Me

I read this somewhere a few weeks back and it really made me want to do it. I can't remember which blog, but if it was yours, please let me know. Since I'm a super lazy person, I've just gotten around to doing it.

1. I hate chocolates.

2. I love icecream. But I hate chocolate icecream.

3. I make really good butter chicken.

4. I have an extremely sweet tooth. So much so, I sneak around at night when my mom is asleep and steal sweets from the fridge.

5. I watch a LOT of tv shows. I think I might need an intervention.

6. I'm not a morning person. Wake me up earlier than I'm used to and I'll make a face at you all day.

7. My dad and I disagree on everything under the sun.

8. I love action films, especially those based on superheroes and video games.

9. I have a vampire fetish.

10. I want to go backpacking through europe.

11. I'm incapable of living outside a city. I get bored out of my mind.

12. I'm really scared of heights.

13. I have an irrational fear of being stuck in an elevator with a stranger, similar to Aunt Josephine's fear of realtors in the Lemony Snicket movie.

14. I was once mistaken for a lesbian.

15. I've never been able to watch Casablanca in its entirety.

16. I've watched Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and The Notebook more times than I can count on both hands.

17. I buy notebooks just because they look cute and never use them.

18. I have a collection of 400 books, and I'm currently in the process of making an inventory.

19. My all time favourite movie is Roman Holiday.

20. I have an unending capacity for junk food.

21. My favourite place to go when I need to feel better is a Bookstore.

22. I never swear. Never use bad language. I used to. But i made a conscious effort not to and now it feels weird coming out of my mouth.

23. I am geographically challenged. I get lost quite often.

24. I hate drinking tea. It's coffee for me all the way.

25. When I was a kid, I used to think that tv shows were real people being filmed, and I wondered if I was secretly being filmed.

25. I get annoyed by bad spellings.

26. I cried like a baby when Sirius Black died.

27. I also cried like a baby when Heath Ledger died. I thought he was the best thing that ever happened to Hollywood. I still watch 10 Things I Hate About You when I miss him. Though, I think Joker was his best character.

28. When i was younger, I used to frequently have dreams that I was falling off a building, and subsequently ended up falling off my bed. One time, i fell on the other end of the bed, and my mom didn't see me and thought I'd gone missing.

29. I used to play the flute.

30. I once crashed my dad's car into a tree while parking. He still doesn't know about it.

39. I have a thing for British and Scottish accents.

40. Ever since I got hit while crossing the road, I am mortally scared of crossing roads.

41. I once dated a guy who already had a girlfriend, though I knew nothing about it then. I found out years later.

42. The day after I saw The Ring with my best friend, the newspaper had a giant ad saying '7 Days To Go'. On the 7th day, I called up my bff to make sure she was alive, couldn't get hold of her, and had a mini panic attack.

43. I'm in the category of obsessive people. When something interests me, I get obsessed about it.

PnB said...

Purvi said...

Good way to put yourself to paper or should i say to blog :)
Also I hate chocolate cakes and chocolate ice creams...

perfectskincareforyou said... should actually share the lesbian hitting story :D its not easy to put 50 things about least I cannot...I loved reading it :)

ladylavendersays said...

@sandhya.. maybe we'll both see each other in NYC :P. About the lesbian thing, I was checking out this really hot girl, cos she was really well dressed, had this awesome pair of boots and a really pretty necklace I found really interesting. She thought I was interested in her, and started hitting on me. Most embarassing situation of my life.

@alvira. i'm weird that way. never developed a taste for chocolates.

ladylavendersays said...

@mehak. thanks

@purvi. thanks. thank god I'm not the only chocolate hater.

@perfectskincareforyou.. just shared the story in my previous comment. It took me quite a while to think of 50 things. not an easy task. and i'm glad you liked reading it.

Anamika K said...

Thats quite an interesting list :-) and i identify with a lot of stuff!....i get annoyed at bad grammar and mis-spellings too...! when people use lose for loose and vice versa...quite anal...and yes due to a near accident am mortally afraid of crossing the road too...and extremely geographically challenged, so much so, my dad used to marvel at how i find my way home from work every day!! And kudos on above average intelligence, thats a blessing :-) and i love the thing about TV and real people, see kids have an amazing imagination and i loovve them too, they are my fav people in the world to have a conversation about....and real interesting list, nice to get to know people in 50 tid-bits....inspiring enough for me to try my own 25! :-) And i CANT believe you hate chocolates or chocolate ice-cream!...i didnt know people like that existed!

ClassyandFabulous said...

The lesbian thing deserves a whole post btw!!
I LOVE hum aapke hain kaun. used to watch it on the VHS, when they still existed:)
I cried when dobby died! specially in the movie, they filmed it really well!

btw have u seen the move 'the truman show' with jim carrey. u shud if u feel sometimes you are being filmed: )

ladylavendersays said...

@anamika.. i'm not so bad that i don't find my way home. I'm okay with the roads i travel on everyday. But less frequent ones are a nightmare. I always set out for one place and find myself somewhere else. The GPS on my phone has been a blessing.
The TV thing was hilarious. I'd always try to be all nice and a good girl cos I thought I was being filmed and I didn't want to look like bad on TV. I love kids. I love conversations with them. They're always so full of energy, its refreshing. I've never liked chocolate, not even as a kid. I'm weird like that.
And you should definitely try this as well. I would love to know more about you.

ladylavendersays said...

@classy&fabulous. lol. there's not much to it. Just what i've written in my reply to sandhya's comment. As embarrassed as I was, i was a little bit flattered too. If i liked girls, I'd have been way out of her league. :P
I bought the DVD of hum aapke hain kaun. Its my feel good movie.
Oh, i was all teary eyed when dobby died too. It was so sad. I really liked him. He was adorable. But when sirius died, i cried more for harry who had nobody else in the world.
And I googled the truman show and read the premise. OMG, its so like what I used to imagine. I'm definitely going to watch it. Thanks for telling me about it.

bhumika said...

loved d post pooja..
even m bad with less frequent roads..hate spelling mistakes,pronounciation mistakes and loved HAHK...I love salman..n madhuri was also damn gud..I like such family movies..
n lesbian thg was hilarious..:D

Inky Pinky said...

Thats quite a handful of confessions !!! I always thought who wudn't like chocolates but after reading ur post & comments, I realize I was mistaken :P
(Psst:I've too watched HAHK umpteen of times but dare not admit it now knowing what a silly wedding drama it was :D)

ladylavendersays said...

@bhumika.. hehe. lots in common.

@inky pinky. I used to think i was the only weirdo who didn't like chocolates. Then i found out i'm not. hehe.
Silly drama or not, still love the movie.

anamika said...

I so enjoyed reading your posts...and sorry to say you get irritated with bad spelling and i am a type master...:(

ladylavendersays said...

Aswathy said...

ladylavendersays said...

Thanks aswathy

cristina petre said...

great facts, really enjoyed reading them..even found myself in some of the lines!
i'd like to thank you for your comment, words like that make me work even harder:) i really appreciate it!

shai said...

Just randomly visited your blog again... Now I am a decade older but this is uncannily similar to how I am...10, 11, 12, 23, 25, 39, 43 and 50 could well have been written by me. For Heath Ledger, substitute Ayrton Senna/Kurt Cobain and we are good to go :). But we part company at Italian greatest love! All the best, I enjoyed reading your look back on your first few months at work, I remember a time when I was equally earnest and dedicated. Learning to balance is no easy task. Would like to believe that I am only slightly less so now.

There's a little bit more to this loooong comment - I liked your work clothes post, I work in an informal industry in a conservative city, so it was most helpful!
