Guilty and Innocent Again and also Nameless :-)

As promised, I am here taking up 2 more tags today. One by Nipun and the other by Gayathri.

Let me take up Gayathri's first. Its sort of  confusing as this is an award which has no fancy picture or a Name. Its called NAMELESS Award. What I have to do is this

1. List 7 things about myself that nobody knows.
2. Pass this award on to 7 other people.
3. Comment on their blog and notify them that they have been tagged.  

So here I go

1. I am a systems software engineer toying with advanced technologies of virtualization and enterprise storage. 

2. I am very very very lazy. I have to literally push myself to do anything at all!!

3. I am a music maniac. Need music all the time except while sleeping. Languages no bar. In fact, I need music to work productively and if there is a situation where I cant have music like meetings, trainings, then I sing or hum, there is always a rhythm within :-) Preparing for exams as well required music on full volume. And yes, I sing pretty well, that's what I have been told and suggested to start getting trained formally.

4. I am upfront, bold, no nonsense, straight forward and frank person who cant fake or sweet talk. Tough to get promotions eh? What to do, cant help. 

5. I seem to have an excellent photographic memory. I can remember anything seen or read just a couple of times instantly. My friends used to surrender their credit card numbers and other important dates and facts to me. I tend to remember everything and anything, however irrelevant that be. Its more of a disadvantage as I also tend to remember things that I very badly want to forget!!!

6. I am a shoe freak. I cant stop myself from buying at least 1 pair of footwear if I ever cross a shoe store. Now a days, I close my eyes literally whenever I pass a shoe store as I already have 40+ pairs of footwear in all shapes and designs and have no more closet space at home!! Oh yeah!! by the way, got 2 pairs yesterday too :-P

7.  I like to learn new things and update myself. Want to learn painting and hone my photographic skills. I know 6 languages, learning Punjabi and Gujrati but my teachers are not regular and dedicated as their student is. Listening to me Punjabi and Gujrati teachers??? After this, few more languages :-D

Wow!! that was super seven. I tag

lost world

Now the next tag :-)

Nipun tagged me again for the 'Guilty or Innocent'. I had already done it last August and it was incidentally my first tag.

Here it is - Guilty or Innocent

But answering is fun, so thought let me answer again. You may find discrepancy in few answers. But that could be either because few things have changed since August or that I forgot the respective incidents and thus answered otherwise....Anyways its fun!!

The rules are thus…
RULE 1: You can only say Guilty or Innocent
RULE 2: You are not allowed to explain anything unless someone messages you and asks!
RULE 3: Copy and paste this into your notes , delete my answers, type in your answers and tag 20 of your friends to answer this.

I might just end up breaking all 3 rules :-)
