And So We Got Tagged Twice Over

This 11 question tag has been going around in the blogworld for a while now…

I read it first on Hitchy’s  blog and well he tagged me…and then Chattywren  was kind enough to tag me as well..

So here are the answers to the 22 questions..

Before that the rules

The Rules:

1. You must post the rules.
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
3. Tag eleven people and link to them on your post.
4. Let them know you’ve tagged them!

1. I have done that

2 (a) Am doing that further down

2. (b) Please I cant ask questions to save my life

3.Whoever wants to do it please take up any of the 22 questions and go ahead and do it…this whole idea of coming up with questions is too tough for me…I have a harrowing time answering My inhouse Miss.Why-What-When all the time!

Gah! whom am I kidding…I loved Chitrahaar and Mowgli 🙂

3.)    Have / had any celebrity crushes ?  

yes…Sushmita Sen *rolls eyes* when she won the miss much so that my  friend and I actually had a scrap book with her pictures…we used to go to barber shops to flick the magazines with her pics in it…Gosh! how idiotic is that *Shakes her head in disbelief*

Nothing..aiyo what does that make me ? sad character 😦

8.)    Do you have a role model – someone you want to emulate? Whom do you admire the most? –

Oye Hitchy this sounds like some MBA ka entrant ka question..please..there are loads of people I admire

My parents for what they are
RD for what he is and who is expected to survive me for the life time we need to spend together
My brother who survived me for 25 years
Women in Mumbai who slog their ass off and yet find time to smile, chat and dress up etc etc etc

11.)    For Girls – If you woke up tomorrow to find out you are Brad Pitt, what would be the first thing you’d say upon looking in the mirror !  –

  1. “already a super human” – you said that so right. Its such a co-incidence that I was talking about you, Seema,SnS in the morning and telling him how well you people handle and manage your things and Im so impressed with all of you. You especially with the amount of travelling you do everyday and still have energy left for the weekends to do so much more while Im left panting like a dog with its tongue out by the time weekend comes! SnS and Seema – handling 2 and managing so well… So, if ever I was asked this Q/Q on my idol/inspiration – i would say you 3 are my Teen Deviyan!

    Calvin – I LOVE Calvin too. Been eyeing the entire collection for a long time now. Will buy it someday…

    • R's Mom says:

      arey I was just kidding…I am not super human yaar…there are millions of people doing so much more than me :):)

      My dad has a big book of Calvin…he gave it to me when he shifted from Baroda to Goa 🙂

  2. summerscript says:

    hahaha 😀 loved it!!
    Go to sleep if in trouble – by RM — bestestestest..I do that!! If I am extremely worried I goto sleep 🙂

  3. Oh I think the whole country had a crush of sorts on SushSen during those heady days when she had just won the Miss Universe 🙂
    //Get rid of AJ and go back to JA// Haha well said. I can’t stand AJ too!!
    And you hit a boy so hard he had blood coming out of his nose? Wow , you must have been one strong kid!!

  4. Nithvin says:

    ‘Go to sleep if in trouble..’ my favourite line,RM. I follow it to the dot 🙂
    and that song.. does it have lyrics like that..have never heard it completely till now..

    • R's Mom says:

      oh yes it does…even I didnt realise till the brat made me hear it like a million times on youtube…but seriously..its like the language in the song is made for R 🙂

  5. Briefly:
    Yes. Calvin and Hobbes is my favourite comic strip too
    No. I had always preferred Aishwarya Rai to Sushmita Sen.

  6. skasturiahweta says:

    Hahaha.. 😀 I Loved the song.. 🙂 the quote.. wait wait wait.. i mean the whole blog re… 😉
    You know what is the most exciting thing about a monday morning –> Getting to read your blog.. it cheers me up on otherwise a grey/blue whatever day its supposed to be.. Of course I look forward to it on other days too.. but Monday morning.. its like reach office asap so I can read araam se.. 😀

  7. Seema says:

    Your scrap book with pics of Sush reminded me of my school days where I collected pics of Salman Khan and Juhi Chawla 🙂 When I told Abbas about my favourite actors, he said ‘Sheesh, what a bad choice you have’ and I said ‘Now you know why I married you’ :mrgreen:

    LOL on ‘give me clean bathrooms though’ – No wonder R is so clear about her priorities 😀

    You hit a guy so hard when you were in 4th Std eh? 😯

    Me too prefer JA over AJ anyday 😀

    The song actually has those lyrics? I thought R made it up 🙂 Got to listen to it 😀

    I laughed out so loud when I read ‘Go to sleep if in trouble’. Simple, short and a great piece of advice RM 😀

  8. As always, I enjoyed reading this post! 🙂
    ‘Sleep when in troubel’ – I am learning to do that, and it works!

  9. Reema says:

    Oh you are an HP fan too?? and Obelix one too? Yayyy!!

  10. techie2mom says:

    “I have a harrowing time answering My inhouse Miss.Why-What-When all the time!” LOL, reading your blog gives me somewhat similar of reading P G Wodehouse, i love reading him…..

    “If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
    Everywhere boss, everywhere…I have no preference in long as I dont have to get up early and cook I am ready to go anywhere…give me clean bathrooms though”
    I can relate to this big time………Add someone to entertain the brat & i am just fine everywhere :)……

    • R's Mom says:

      Gosh thats such a rich compliment…PG Wodehouse is GOD!!! I am not even a minute molecule in front of him 🙂

      LOL on taking care of the brat…I agree on that one definitely

  11. The Bride says:

    I normally don’t like these 20 question kind of things but your answers were so interesting and each one said a little bit about you. Wanted to “like” all of them.

  12. Pepper says:

    That has been my philosophy in life too. When in trouble, I go to bed and pull up the covers. Works best!

  13. ashreyamom says:

    ha ha ha.. u have lots of patience to type re.. i would have said, call me up and ask questions and i will give answers instantaneously. difficult for me type long answers/.

  14. chattywren says:

    Thanks for taking up the tag and enjoyed reading ur answers. Lol on your quote and preference for clean bathrooms and train journeys. Ditto for me!!

  15. Haha…nice answers RM. I’d do the same re the Brad Pitt one… what was he thinking? And still is?

  16. DI says:

    Er, I had a scrapbook with Aishwarya’s pics at the same time! Now I cant STAND her! Weird huh? Though my biggest celeb crush was/is Rahul Dravid, siiiiigh! 😀

    • R's Mom says:

      hahaha! I can still stand Sush…I was very upset when she went into Bollywood with that awful movie of hers 🙂

      But again, now I think I do admire her stance of adopting kids, taking care of them, doing what she wishes…

      I know..I am a big RD fan myself 🙂 (RD = Rahul Dravid not to be mistaken for my RD )

  17. Tanishka says:

    Those lyrics are funny… I’ll go hear the song… 🙂
    Go to sleep when in trouble funda works for me too… 😀

  18. anisnest says:

    already a super woman – that’s for sure.. btw what is that khicidi language RM? you mean you think in all languages? genius you are.. ***Falling at your feet lady***

  19. Awesome answer on the Brad Pitt question….Didn’t realise AJ and JA’s names are invertible when you say it like that…

  20. How can you sleep when you are in trouble? 😐
    Woh bhi bata do! 🙂

    • R's Mom says:

      Errr….put a bedsheet on th bed, take a pillow, take a pothi and then put the pothi on your head and close your eyes and think of something nice..and zzzzzzzzzz Gah! whom am I kidding..I can cry myself to sleep 🙂

  21. Deeps says:

    Yay you did the tag too! Was wonderful to get to know a bit more about you :). I loved the ‘not grown up yet’ bit :D.

  22. Smitha says:

    Loved your answers 🙂

    I loved ‘The world this week’! I used to wait for it all week, and then on saturday when we had Computer classes, we used to dissect the news – what fun days they were! You brought back memories 🙂

    I preferred Sush over Aishwarya – although I did not have a crush on her 🙂 I found her more sensible -I just wish she had never entered Bollywood, though.
