I have been tagged!

Help! I have been tagged!
I have not eight but eighty things to say about myself, but do I want people to know these ? THAT is the question.
1. I suffer from acrophobia.I HATE rollercoasters, giantwheels all the things normal people love to ride in.
2. I love the word phobia. It sounds high funda..Instead of saying that I am ... scared of spiders I can say I suffer from the way my biology is little rusty..spiders are arthropods ..right.?
3.I dont have a single sports gene. I am bad at any sport or game....I am surprised that my husband who loves sports (he even watches re-re-re -reruns of all matches)hasnt divorced me.
4. I hate cooking. I frankly dont know from where my daughter got her love of cooking from . My motherinlaw never cooked nor did her motherinlaw.I cook because I love compliments and love oneupmanship.Go to 8 for further details.
5.I sing like an ass , I'm usually a zillion notes off-key
6.I love irritating my husband , a skill honed over the years. He is a hoarder,I am a thrower-out of things. Just today I cleaned his room thoroughly, I am waiting anxiously for the repercussions.Anyway, that is three months away.I dont think he's going to divorce me because
-- It is very difficult to get cooks
--He loves old things.. and I am practically an antique now.
--Alimony is too expensive and we cannot afford lawyers.
7.I keep my kitchen either spiffy clean or drop dead dirty
8.I'm terribly insecure , it takes about 3 compliments a day (I dont mind even repeated compliments)to keep me stable and reasonably sane

Now is the million dollar question , I do not KNOW 8 people , maybe not even 8 visitors! So please save me from ignominy and take up my tag , dear..dearest reader !(I hope you love compliments just as I do!)

Ahem (*Brandishes her cane*) , here are the rules
1. Each player starts with 8 random facts/habits about themselves.
2. People who are tagged, write a blog post about their own 8 random things, and post these rules.
3. At the end of your post you need to tag 8 people and include their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment and tell them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
4. If you fail to do this within eight hours, you will not reach Third Series or attain your most precious goals for at least two more lifetimes. (what does it mean?)

Mod Michaelangelo


Weekends in India are like weekdays ,atleast for me. A heavier breakfast may be, a longer walk , a longer snooze. Here weekends mean going sightseeing ; This time it was catching up on museums in DC.we wanted to see only those I had missed out last time I was was the Sculpture garden for us.One which caught my fancy was the 3D inside outside house (pic above) which changed perspective as we walked towards it.It really got me thinking...We are so judgmental about people when we meet them for the first time, seeing them through someone's eyes, through our own insecurities,then we get closer and see them quite differently.....see these sculptures as I saw them.

(Oh, what a tangled web we weave.....I didnt go into this parlor)

(A cat can look at a King, a crow can look at a sculpture. 3 guesses for what this is.)
