What a lovely tag Reflections has passed onto me. The self-obsessed me, would love to talk some more about myself. Would you like to hear about it???Ten whole things about myself, this should be tons of fun.

1. I always count my vegetables/fruits, while I am picking them up in the supermarket. Like when I am buying tomatoes, though they sell by kilos, I would just count the number I pick up. No particular reason, just a quirk.

2. I love people, generally, I just love people, talking to them, knowing them, observing them, everything. Till you really bother me, or turn out to be a total jerk, by default, I like you.

3. I have come out of the ladies' room in my office with my kurta stuck inside my salwaar, not once or twice, but thrice. There is a reason I call myself a goof people, I am a super clumsy goof. And yes, I don't even want to think of it again.

4. I never forget unfinished business, I never forget the phone call that was not returned, by me or vice-versa, a friend who suddenly stopped being in touch, a letter I needed to have written 15 years back, I remember all of it, and they bother me. I working on getting rid of this, getting there, bit by bit.

5. I suck at keeping secrets, but am really good at maintaining trust. If there is gossip about XYZ, that ABC tells me, I am very unlikely to be able to contain it, but if you trust me enough to share something really important, I am too overwhelmed by that show of faith, to ever speak a word about it.

6. I once bought this huge and expensive coffee-table book on Kama Sutra, from a book exhibition held in my office. Had to hide the damn thing till I left office, and a friend who knew I had bought the book, made sure she publicised it to the whole wide world. The sad bit is, that the book is not with me anymore.

7. I love gifts, but hate choices. The better-half has lot of options and no decisions, so if he wants to buy me something, he basically gives me a list of options, and tells me to decide what I want. i usually end up buying nothing, because I get so confused. Fortunately, things did not go that way this weekend, and I got an amazing new DSLR.

8. I can never sleep in the day, at home, if I am alone, or everyone else is asleep. Which basically means, a daytime nap almost never happens, because rarely will the GP stay up, if I am napping, and on weekdays, there is no other adult around.

9. I work in bursts, there are days full of activity, and there are the ones, where I do nothing, its never a regular routine in my life, atleast so far.

10.I am a very slow reader, and I mean really slow. I have never finished a decent sized book in a day or in one night. The fastest I have been was finishing a Nancy Drew book in one night. I read every word and every detail, I have no fast reading skills, and hence I was never suitable to appear for a CAT exam.

And for the people who have patiently read through this drivel, here is a BIG round of applause from me. And I shall now pass on this to ten people, whom I would like to know some more.

1. Sraikh
2. Chandni
3. Monika
4. Piper
5. 'A'
6. Indyeah
7. Rakesh
8. Trishna
9. Parul
10. M4
