My 8 Random Facts

Well, I’ve been tagged again, this time by Aki Jinn on 8 random facts about me. Before I start spilling, here are 3 simple rules that you have to follow once you’ve been tagged by me.

The Rules

  1. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.
  2. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.
  3. Players should tag eight other people and notify them that they have been tagged.

8 Random Facts On Me

  • Mariuca is actually the Italian name given to me by my Italian professor during my uni days in the US.
  • My all-time favourite perfume is Escape by Calvin Klein.
  • I read my horoscope everyday and somehow, it always seems to relate to my life on that day!
  • My all-time favourite movie is Love Affair featuring Warren Beatty and Annette Bening.
  • My late grandfather was from India.
  • I love Italian food, yummy!
  • I wrote my first short story when I was 8.
  • One of my most embarrassing moments was being caught with a pair of handcuffs in my suitcase at Philly Airport (put there by a friend as a joke!) and I had no way of explaining how they got in there!

So there you have it! And now, I would like to tag these 8 cool people to share their random facts with me:

  1. Eddie John
  2. Christy
  3. Devil Diary
  4. Jean Chia
  5. Champ Dog
  6. Mr. Sandman

Handcuffs? So how did you managed to get away?

Mariuca May 30, 2007 4:03 PM

Emila! I was happily on my way to Chicago and they stopped me and I was of course shocked since I didn't know about it! Somehow I managed to stammer some silly excuse about it being a joke from my roommate and they probably felt sorry for me since everyone was crowding around and staring, so they believed me in the end I guess! :) :)

Marzie! I'm so in love with the Samsons song!! Good choice!

Mizohican May 31, 2007 8:02 PM

Dear Marzie,

First of all, I hate tags :-) Infact my blog is protected by the latest Norton Anti-Tagging software. Don't believe it? Click here to see what I'm talking about :-)

But since you are super duper cool, I will make an exception. :-)

1. I am a Mizo. That's one of the tribes of the extremely diversified culture of great India.
2. The name of my state is Mizoram, close to a 100% Christians in a country with less than 3% Christians :-)
3. I've spent at least more than a year in most of the States of India, and am quite fluent with at least 10 different Indian languages (Mizo, Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, Bengali etc).
4. I am a sit-com addict. My computer never switches off, downloading all the latest comedy serials 24/7/365.
5. Apart from my nerdy blog lifestyle, I am also a jock, representating two Indian States in basketball and thus creating a scandalous controversy!!! (Don't even ask!)
6. Also did a brief stint as a VJ for a South Indian regional music channel (english rock program) before joining IIMB, one of the most prestigious B-Schools of Asia.
7. Love junk foodddddd!!!
8. This is the first time I've ever responded to a tag invitation! I never used to pay heed to all the other numerous tags I used to get before. This will also be the only time I will ever respond to a tag since you are super duper cool, or have I mentioned that before? :-)

-Kim (Sandman)

No Reply June 05, 2007 11:53 PM

So what is the protocol when a blogger tags you for the same meme twice? I hope the blogosphere doesn't implode.

Mariuca June 06, 2007 3:11 AM

Hi Greg, finally I get your cute avatar on my comments page! :) Guess you have to wait and see how and if I get myself out of this double-tag fix :) :)
