I thought my next post would be 'Insignia goes to America'. But I got tagged again by Gayathriji. This one seems to be quite light. So here I am

1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn on page 18 and find line 4 - "Optimize your virtual machine I/O with adjustable volume, disk, file and block sizes" (A technical guide on server virtualization and enterprise storage) :-S
I am at work now and these are the materials I have around me!!

Stretch your left arm out as far as you can & catch air? – Shucks!!! I hit my hand against the left wall of my cube!!

What is the last thing you watched on TV? – Today morning, after getting my overdose of YSR, I tuned on to a music channel and I watched the song "Vizhi moodi yosithal" from Tamil movie Ayan. I like Surya and I love to hear to Karthik :-D

4. Without looking, guess what time it is? – 1:55 PM

Now look at the clock, what is the actual time? – 1:54 PM.....Wow!! I am so close!!

6. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?- I am on my headphone right now hearing to a Telugu melody(one of cute song by Karthik again). But I can also hear some key tabs, and my colleague kicking his feet against my cube. I feel tremor...
I have to ask him to stop, he does this most times, maybe I need to tie his legs together!!.

7. When did you last step outside? What were you doing? – AT 9 AM, today morning, left for work.

8. Before you started this Q&As, what did you look at?- A couple of other blogs. And latest was Gayathri's, as I had to copy this tag.

What are you wearing?- Grrrrrr, dress of course! OK, enough of the PJ. My favorite pair of Jeans - stone cold wash, skinny and low hip, a maroon pull over with a beautiful bull dog on the front, pair of tiny ear studs, a ballerina white pumps...Phew!!! Enough is enough!!!, wont go into more detail.....Oh yeah, I forgot my watch today.

10. When did you last laugh? – 5 minutes back when my colleague came around and shared his training experience!

11. What is on the walls of the room you are in? – I am far away from the walls. The nearest one and probably the only one is painted red with a fire extinguisher attached at one end. Its all glass facade otherwise

12. Seen anything weird lately? – Yups!! An indifferent looking teeny-weeny pizza the size of an infant's palm offered at our office cafe.

What do you think of this quiz? I thought this was light, but its making me think!! which I find it tough with this time of the day after a heavy lunch and music playing on in parallel.

14. What is the last film you saw? - Kaminaey!!...I faw it twife!! Hahahaha Yeah in the movie hall.
Aife aife,....kaife kaife......I really loved the "Fpiderman.......Fpiderman............." act

15. If you became a multimillionaire overnight, what would you buy?- A BMW 3 series coupe - Sporty. This is the first thing that always comes on my mind!! Don't know why :-| Remaining money, there will be loads right? BMW 3 series can be acquired for about 30-40 lakhs, yeah remaining money, I don't know what I'll do. I'll hire one money manager as I am very poor in managing it.

Tell me something about you that I dunno!- Horror movies make me laugh!! They seem funny to me. I am not scared of reptiles and I am the official 'banish-executive' of lizards, cockroaches at my home.

If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?- Want to eliminate illiteracy, this would get into the crux of all the issues.

Do you like to Dance?- Yeah, I do dance most times, while walking, while at home. There's always some music playing in my mind all the time.....I guess whatever limb shaking and hip shaking I do is well enough to be called a dance!!

19. Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?- Hehehehe :-P I always liked the name "Ahalya'. So that's what it would be. But hope the kid likes it.

20. Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?- Oh never thought about this yet!! Hmm, it will be 'Abhi'+something I think

21. Would you ever consider living abroad?Naeyyyyyyyy! Each time I have lived outside Bangalore; even for a couple of months, it was somewhat empty-empty, sad-sad. So no living outside Bangalore, forget about living outside India!!

22. What do you want GOD to say to you when you reach the pearly gates? – Yo!! lady...Give me a High 5!!
Later, I and GOD will go on a Loooooooooong drive. I will let him drive so that I can enjoy the scenery.

And I am tagging


PS : You better take this up guys!! Else when I meet GOD, I will influence him to punish ya' all by saying that you all committed an unpardonable sin by not taking up this tag!!

    Yeah, America comedies coming soon to a blogosphere near you :-)

  6. Oo! I get tagged!

    Will follow up as soon as I get out of my lazy streak.

    Each time I have lived outside Bangalore; even for a couple of months, it was somewhat empty-empty, sad-sad. So no living outside Bangalore, forget about living outside India!!

    Come to Mumbai...same thing, more traffic :D

  7. Hi Shaunak,

    Thank you.

    Oh yeah, Mumbai's crowd and traffic.
    But its my Bangalore for me :-D

  8. heyy sis

    loved every bit :D

    hahah! waise I love india too :P

  9. Very nice answers. I love them all except answer to question number 16: Tell me something about you that I dunno. I was expecting along those lines of some secret romance. ha ha ha.

  10. "I have to ask him to stop, he does this most times, maybe I need to tie his legs together!!"

    hehe, do it and write a post about the outcome! :)

    And please, do not name any child of you as Abhi-(placeholder)

    name him as 'Zabhi+(placeholder)'
    Trust me, all Abhi-(placeholder)s are tired of being the roll no. 1

  11. Is this really fun?
    I mean, it could be at work! But otherwise?

  12. @ Abhinav

    Not if there's a "Aash-[placeholder]" in your class.

  13. Heiya AS,

    Thank you, glad you liked it :-)

  14. Hi SG,

    Thank you.
    Lol!! you expected some mushy-mushy story there huh? Well, sorry to have disappointed you..:-P

  15. Hey Abhi,

    Oh yeah!! very soon!! I am just going to do that. He kept banging against my cubicle for continuous 15 minutes as he was talking on some important call yesterday too.
    I couldn't even interrupt him because he was on call!! :-(

    Oh, yeah I can understand when you say about being named beginning with 'A'. I too would fall within roll number 5 and would be guinea pigs during exams, viva et all..


  16. Hi Kish,

    It is real fun!! Why don't you just take up this tag and try for yourself :-)

  17. Hahahahahaha @ Shaunak's comments.

    Why didn't I think about this? Very very true :-P

    Maybe Abhi did not have that privilege, is it Abhi?

  18. Hi sm,

    Hmm, internet facility!! Well, why not? I will post regular updates :-)

  21. Excellent. I love the way you met God. Just like my sister used to say. She is ok now and alive and happy. I hope you do too.

  22. Thanks Vivek.

    Isn't that a cool way to meet GOD?

  23. //Horror movies make me laugh!! They seem funny to me.

    Me too!

    //I am not scared of reptiles and I am the official 'banish-executive' of lizards, cockroaches at my home.

    Oye Ladki! Easy now! Cockroaches are eeeevil. Bash em all you want. But don't you dare touch lizards :P

    For I be the StupidoSAUR!!!!

    And anyways, I never heard of lizard biting or spreading disease. The just help in natural pest control in your kitchen. So why bother?

  24. Hi Insignia,

    Congratulations! You have received the Humane award. Please check my blog and collect your award. Thanks.

  25. Hi Stupidosaur,

    Welcome to the league!! Horror movies are way too funny, aren't they?

    Hmm, a savior is out here to protect the goody-goody reptiles of the world eh?

    Lizards are sweet beings, and yeah I don't banish them unless they hijack my personal stuffs, you know like crawling near the beds, crawling on the coffee table. Yeah I give so much of space to these creatures; that they know I don't do any harm so they start invading much.

    Don't you ever worry Mr Savior, the SAURs are all hale and hearty :-)

  26. Hi SG,

    Thank you very much for the award. Feels good.

  27. Natural answers. Good. I like your profile name 'Insignia' very attractive.
