Random Facts Meme and 50th post

Dhivya of “Culinary Baazar” has tagged me for this Meme. Thanks Dhivya.

This is also my 50th post on this blog. I wanted to thank you all for the support, warm comments, acceptance and that is what keeps me going and makes me want to write more and cook  more J 

  • Now onto my first Meme . The rules are :-
  • 1. Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
  • 2. Share 7 random and/or wierd things about yourself.
  • 3. Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
  • 4. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

It was fun thinking, writing about myself and I have totally enjoyed it. Here are some of my random facts about me:

  • Everybody in my family except my husband was born on the 10th. I was born on March 10th, my Dad September 10th, MIL and my toddler October 10th, my Mom and Brother November 10th.

  • I can speak quite a few Indian languages apart from English. Kannada as I grew up in Bangalore, Hindi as it is our National language, Marathi as most of my maternal relatives are from Bombay.  I can also speak Konkani in the South Kanara accent like my in-laws and also the North Kanara accent like my parents. I also studied Sanskrit for 5 years in school and I hope that I can count that language as well!

  • I am a “cold blooded” person and cannot tolerate cold especially during winters. The moment the temperature goes below 75 F, my hands and feet start becoming extra cold. At work I am the only person walking around with a sweater, when the rest of the people are warm and toasty L

  • I have a sweet tooth, hence love anything sweet. I can literally indulge myself in any type of Sweets or Desserts.  The first thing that I browse for in blogs, food websites (if you have not already guessed) is Sweets. So the next time, you “see” somebody lurking around for a longer time in the dessert section , you know who that is J

  • I am an introvert and a home-loving person. My idea of relaxation especially after work and the weekend is chilling out at home, trying out recipes, cooking, reading books, and watching TV etc. Many a times I have to be literally dragged out of home even to do the groceries.

  • I used to be a huge Perry Mason/ Earl Stanley Gardner fan in my High School and I have read and enjoyed at least 60 of his different cases.

  • I enjoy listening to soft rock and music from the 80’s and 90’s. That immediately soothes me and preps me up especially when I am having a rough day.

  Now I would like to tag the following people. There is no compulsion to do the Meme, do it only if you please.

    Loved your post today. Congratulations on your 50th post. I am SO cold blooded too, and my fav is to curl up at home and do homey things, including cooking and reading. I love food shopping, but it does take quite a bit to get me out of the house to do it.

    I love soft rock, & I am like u, feel best at home, and just detest going out… esp. groceries…:-)My way of relaxing is alone with a book, a cuppa, with NO ONE around me.

  11. Lakshmi says:

    RC, I was blog hopping and came across your site. And I Just happened to read your meme first. Your fact about being born and brought up in Bangalore, knowing Kannada and Hindi and learnt Sanskrit…thats all me too!! Now I am curious which school did you study in..very few schools in Bangalore have Sanskrit as 2/3rd language. I did my schooling in Kishore Kendra for few years.
