Atlast felt like blogging. :). Finally managed to settle in my new room as well. Room no.6158 it is. Happy with life as it is. CAT classes aren't that hectic for now. So life's going good. Just a minor problem with the light in my room and the absence of a fan as well, else it's quite good. :-P.

Moving on to the tag,

Q: When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?
I was running late, having got up only by 8 am after dad had called. So was just thinking about reaching class on time as the walk from hostel to college takes 20-25 minutes on an average.

Q: How much cash do you have in your wallet right now?
A: Rs. 3.25. Three one rupee coins and a 25 paise coin. Bankrupt as of now, although my two accounts have quite a bit of cash. :).

Q: What’s a word that rhymes with DOOR?
A: Floor. It's quite clean. Effect of not using footwear much inside the room during the rain and having two floor mats, one for the entrance and the other for the balcony door. I'm a stickler for cleanliness. Hate living in a dirty or a smelly room.

Q: What is your favorite ring tone on your phone?
A: I have only a Nokia 6030 and a Nokia 1600. Not many ringtones I can have. And most of the time anyways, my mobile is on Silent mode. So I hardly find a use for them as well. The default Nokia tone is my favourite as I have that for all my best friends. :)

Q: Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
A: There's only one person on my missed call list. That's my mom. I have this habit of clearing my call list every now and then, along with the call timers. The message count is still on though and reads 34609 on my Chennai mobile. :).

Q: What are you wearing right now?
A: A PSBB T-Shirt which was given to my cousin brother, which was over-sized for him, for the 50th anniversary of the school. White coloured. And a black coloured cotton pant. Lying down on my cosy bed and typing this out on the glaring laptop screen, without a light in the room.

Q: Do you label yourself?
A: What does this mean ?! :-O

Q: Name the brand of the shoes you’re currently own?
A: Power Shoes. Bata slippers. Bata bathroom Slippers. Haven't used the shoes much even thought they cost me a princely Rs.1000 because they remind me of a time when I wore it to a hotel and slipped down the staircase to the basement, from the top to the bottom and hurt my back badly, last year. :(. The Bata slippers, I've had to change every six months because of the awesome roads in the college, filled with gravel. I buy the same model and design every time, cos that's the only one I like.

Q: Bright or Dark Room?
A: Dark Room. The CFL in the room aint working. For what joy, I dont know. :-(. My eyes are paining from this effort. I prefer a bright room any day.

Q: What do you think about the person who took this tag before you?
A: Gayathri. Came to know her through Ajit. Dont know much about her. :-(.

Q: What does your watch look like?
A: Gifted to me by Dad. Who got it from his bank for 25 years of distinguished service. :). Golden dial. Black straps. Titan.

Q: What were you doing at midnight last night?
A: Awake, messaging my friends and talking to one. I hardly sleep by midnight while in the hostel. No point sleeping so early considering there's no water in the morning before 7-30.

Q: What did your last text message you received on your cell say?
A: ':-) ha ha, as if tat'll happen.. Hmm therla, lets see..'

Q: What’s a word that you say a lot?
A: 'Apram' while talking on the phone. I dont talk much on the phone and keep asking the other person to say something. Ask the people who've undergone the torture of being on the phone with me for a long time. :P. 'Maaps', while calling my friends in hostel. 'Hmmm", while messaging. :)

Q: Who told you he/she loved you last?
A: No one so far. :-(.

Q: Last furry thing you touched?
A: My beard. :P. Need a shave but feeling too lazy for it.

Q: Favorite age you have been so far?
A: Tough question. Would be this year, it has been quite satisfying and memorable. :). Or my 11th and 12th, had loads of fun, at the wrong time though. :(.

Q: What was the last thing you said to someone?
A: I've been alone in my room for the last two hours. Guess, it was 'Bye' to my mom, while talking to her on the phone.

Q: The last song you listened to?
A: "Sangeetha Jadhi Mullai" from 'Kadhal Oviyam', music by Ilayaraja. Have been addicted to this song for quite sometime now. Awesome song.

Q: Where did you live in 1987?
A: I wasn't existing.

Q: Are you jealous of anyone?
A: I'm not really jealous of anyone, I guess.

Q: Is anyone jealous of you?
A: Quite a few. :P.

Q: Name three things that you have on you at all times?
A: Clothes :P. My mobile(s). People even go to the extent of calling it an extension of my hand ! And my room key bunch, and a handkerchief.

Q: What’s your favorite town/city?
A: Chennai ! I miss it big time ! :-(. Just booked a ticket to be home on Sept 26th morning, in time for my birthday. :).

Q: When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper and mailed it?
A: Looooooooong time since I did that. Guess it must have been the one I wrote to my sister for Raksha Bandhan last year. :).

Q: Can you change the oil on a car?
A: I'm a Civil Engg. Not a mechanical Engg.

Q: Your first love/big crush: What is the last thing you heard about him/her?
A: Think it was Trisha. Last read something about her acting in a Bollywood movie.
Q: Does anything hurt on your body right now?
A: My legs, my knee. Have had this knee pain for more than an year now. :(

Q: What is your current desktop picture?
A: A picture of a flower, which I snapped, in a park in Ooty. :). Here it is.

Q: Have you been burnt by love?
A: No. Never.

I tag anyone who hasn't done this one. Had fun doing a tag after a long time. Thanks Gayathri. :).

I thought you shouldn't cheat while tagging.. You have mentioned that you have not been burnt by love earlier.. Touch your heart and rewind your memory back to "THOSE" so called "HAPPY DAYS"... Now work on the tag again... I hope the truth comes out...
