25 Random things, facts, habits, goals about myself:
  1. The songs I am currently addicted to are "Come On, Eileen" (The Cure), and "Morning Has Broken" (Cat Stevens).
  2. I have OCD. And that's not a big secret. I straighten pictures on the wall if they're crooked, I get intensely bothered by dust, and I don't let anyone doodle on my notebook. In fact, I don't doodle myself on my notebook!
  3. Cooking is my passion, and I feel incomplete without it. It's like therapy, you know? The kitchen is one of my favourite places to be.
  4. I am tremendously scared of heights. Oh, and lizards disgust me.
  5. My favourite books are Frankenstein, and Haroun And The Sea Of Stories. I could read them over and over again.
  6. I like pink. I look good in the colour. And I'm not ashamed to admit it. *grin*
  7. Hypocrisy is a big turn-off for me. There's nothing worse than pretending to be something you're not.
  8. My chocolate cakes are awesome, and have gathered quite a fan following. *grin* I'm not bragging, just merely stating a fact.
  9. I don't wear a watch. I feel uncomfortable in them. For me, looking at the time on my mobile phone is enough.
  10. I have a serious problem with injections and blood tests. I black out when the needle pricks my arm. I'm not too comfortable with the sight of blood, either. And that's putting it mildly.
  11. "Ratatouille" - my favourite animated film. That movie was just awesome!
  12. Clingyness and being over-friendly make me uncomfortable. I'm a person who needs my space.
  13. I'm not very brand conscious, but certain brands I do swear by. For example, I don't wear any other jeans but Levi's, I practically live in Converse shoes! And I adore Nina Ricci perfume.
  14. Sushi gets to me. I can't stand the dish. Tried it, hated it.
  15. I am quite happy being alone, and doing stuff on my own. Lots of people feel terrifically lonely when left to themselves, but not me. I think I've always been a bit removed, if you know what I mean.
  16. JUDE is one of the best things that has happened to me. Literally, a dream come true.
  17. I miss my dad terribly. And I hugely admire my mother for what she's made of herself. I'd consider myself fortunate if I could be even half the person she is.
  18. If I could visit any one place, it'd be Venice. I've always wanted to go there.
  19. I can eat a lot, without putting on weight.
  20. In the last one year or so, I've made some really close friends. And I love each one of them, for being so special. You all know who you are. *grin*
  21. I'd like to name my daughter (if I have one) - Nayantara, or Mrinalini. I think they're very pretty names. Moplah, are you listening? *wink*
  22. I adore the smells of citrus and vanilla. Oh, and new books too.
  23. I never go out on Sundays, unless absolutely necessary. For me, it's the day to stay at home. Wild horses wouldn't be able to drag me out.
  24. I am obsessed with earrings! I have countless pairs, half of which I haven't even worn as yet, and I still buy more!
  25. I have a hot temper, which flares up easily sometimes, making me say the most awful things. (Sometimes, I've even thrown stuff.) But I'm much more in control of it than I used to be.

And thanks. Tui ashbi toh? I shall make cheesecake for you. :D

@ Zephyr: Heh! But I'm not sad about not being able to put on weight, on the contrary- I consider myself lucky. :P

@ Doubletake, Doublethink: Arre, Nayantara is a very pretty name! Atleast, I think so.

You're almost proud of your OCD, aren't you? The way you advertise it, with a flourish and all :P

The cat in the top-left corner of your header picture, looks EXACTLY like one of mine.

CREEPILY similar, I'm telling you. I've always thought he leads a double life.
