And The Award Goes To...

I did not really expect to see my name featured in the lists of a 'Very Inspiring BLOGGER Award' or in the 'One Lovely Blog Award' and I would really like to thank Uma for bestowing upon me these honours:





It really was very unexpected! It's just been a month since I have started blogging here and I am very grateful to all the people who visit my blog, drop in their comments, share different perspectives and appreciate my writings. Thank You All!


According to the rules, I need to state 7 random facts about myself. Being a person who loves talking about 'me', this is going to be a piece of cake! Here goes:

1. I hate French Fries. I do not understand why people like them!

2. I love the rains - not just getting wet when it is raining but I love watching the rains fall down from my balcony. I love sipping hot chocolate and watching the rains from my window.

3. I am a Grammar Nazi. I cannot stand grammatical mistakes and punctuation errors.

4. I am always colour-coordinated. When I dress up, everything has to match! And when I say 'everything', it includes (but is not limited to) jewellery, bag, lingerie, wallet, footwear and hair-clips! I actually change the display theme of my mobile phone every morning based on the outfit I am wearing!

5. I breathe books! I love reading and I am a very fast reader.

6. I am a dreamer. I am often late because I spend too much time admiring the sights and sounds on the road instead of focusing on walking and reaching my destination faster.

7. Waiters seem to be very fascinated by me! I have got discounts and complimentary dishes served at my table by waiters. Recent additions to that list include bus-drivers and conductors who have given me free joy-rides and saved my time by dropping me closer to my destination instead of the actual bus-stop!

Well, I need to pass on these awards. I am still new to this space but here is my list:

Ellen

Sanika

Chatty Wren

Pygmalion

  3. This is indeed a lovely surprise and honor, Diva. Delighted beyond measure. Thank you!

    Thanks too for dropping by my blog. But something in your comment appeared somewhat bewildering (a part copied/pasted here) ..... 'And I agree with what you have written: I always believe that 'The Author Is Dead'. We are only responsible for what we speak or write. .....' ----- How did that title get in there? lols :-)

    1. You are welcome :) That was in reference to your post where you mentioned you can never be sure if the other person got the intent behind what you said - the term 'Author Is Dead' is a term that is used to describe that :)

  4. Thank you very much Divya for considering me for the award. Indeed I am delighted. And also in a bit of a difficult situation, you see, as I have received the award from Uma and I was going to nominate you. But I don't want to start a mini-mutual admiration club so I will just say that I love the way you express yourself - dil se. I really wish I was so sorted out when I was your age.

  6. Grammar Nazi :) Nice way to put it :)
    We seem to share one more trait apart from the ones you mentioned in my post .. Love for books :)
    And colour coordination to that degree is some effort!! Great that you have the patience ..
    Congratulations to you too!

    1. It's not about patience - trust me - I have been this obsessed since a kid - it just comes to me naturally and trust me, I don't take very long to get ready - I am in fact fast compared to my other female counterparts...But I still manage to be more colour coordinated than them :D :D

  7. Loved knowing a little bit more about you! :)

    I am anal about grammar and punctuation, but I am not too judgemental about people who aren't. I breathe books too, and I can't tell you how big a dreamer I am! :)

    I love French fries, though! :) And I am not so colour co-ordinated all the time. :)
