Know Me, A Little Better

I tried all day yesterday, and also the day before that, to compose a post but failed. I knew what I wanted to talk about and I have it in the drafts (almost ready) but I just don't feel like posting it yet. Instead, I decide to take up 50 questions

I first saw it on Anna's Directions Not Included and I instantly knew that I'd take this up sooner or later. My reasons- 1) I simply love it when bloggers share more about themselves with their readers, as it helps the latter to understand the person behind the words better. 2) Because Anna made it look so interesting.

So, here I go:

1. What are you wearing?
PJs and sweatshirt. Arrgghh winters!

2. Ever been in love?
Ever! I have never been out of love. 
I LOVE my family. I love my job. I love food. I love colors. I love festivals. I love celebrations. I love being happy. I love life for being so kind to me.

3. Ever had a terrible break-up?
Terrible. No. Never. 

4. How tall are you?
Somewhere between 5'1 and 5'2.

5. How much do you weigh?
The last time I checked, I was 106 pounds (=48 kgs). Yes, I just made that statement about weight. 

6. Any tattoos?
None. And with the way I walked out of the tattoo studio, after seeing the machine in the artist's hand, 5 years back, I doubt that I'll ever have one. Oh! not to forget, the redness of skin after inking, which only makes it worse for me.

7. Any piercings?
Two in each ear. Not going beyond that.

8. OTP (One true pair, favorite fictional couple?)
(Never really gave it a thought) Probably Sameer & Nandini from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Or Mike and Susan from Desperate Housewives. Though, none of them had happy endings but the fun and spark in their relationship was very likeable.

9. Favorite Show?
Desperate Housewives [I am watching it again. Right from Season 1 :D]
Bigg Boss [Indian version of Big Brother]
Hip Hip Hurray [From late 90's. I just found out that the episodes are available online. Hip Hip Huurrraaaay!! :D :D]

10. Favorite Bands?
Ok. You got me there! We are talking about a do-not-care-much-about-music person here. Yes! such creatures exist and they are not aliens.  Next question please?

11. Something you miss?
Thing! A lot of things. I am a hoarder and all the things I could not hoard, I miss. I miss the house I grew up in, my Barbies, the super-comfy white top with lace flowers that I wore for years, the set of 100 markers I took pride in, my school diaries... you don't want me to enumerate it all. Trust me!

12. Favorite Song?
Can anybody ever answer that one? Anybody?

13. How old are you?
29. Walking towards the big 30!

14. Zodiac sign?
Scorpio. And for some strange reason, I can never say that without a smile, so here it is ":)"

15. Favorite Quality in a Partner?
To know when to stop pushing me. I need that push (I admit) but when it gets a little too much, I automatically start walking in the opposite direction. So glad that Sanket has figured it out :D and that's what makes him THE ONE!

16. Favorite Quote?
You are loved.

17. Favorite Actor?
Salman Khan- From Maine Pyar Kiya to Kick and all the Judwaas and Bandhans in between! Not so much for his acting skills but for the charm he spreads with his presence.

18. Favorite Color?
Black - all time! And then there are fleeting preferences all the time. Currently, I am in the state of transition from Royal Blue to Crimson.

19. Loud music or soft?
Soft but the man of the house likes it loud and the lady of the house hardly ever interferes in matters of music, so it's generally loud around here.

20. Where do you go when you are sad?
Straight to bed. However, in the last 5 years, I have realized that kitchen is not a bad option either. 

21. How long does it take you to shower?
Nothing less than 10 minutes. Upper limit: As long as there is hot water supply.

22.  How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
That solely depends on how much time I have on my hands, which is usually not much because I am always in rushing-and-running mode in the morning. Not a morning person, you got it!!

23. Ever been in a physical fight?
Do childhood sibling fights count?

24. Turn on? 
An interesting talker. A patient listener. A combination of both.

25. Turn-off?
Nosy & bossy people PLUS dirty nails!! In the reverse order.

26. The reason I started blogging?
Because I want(ed) to take my stories beyond the walls of my head, heart and house.

27. Fears?
In today's date, very frankly, the terrorist activities, the fights in the name of religion and the insane brutalities happening across the globe, that seem untamable from where we see it now.

28. Last thing that made you cry?
Some weird pain that hit me hard, only a couple of hours back. Before that, I don't even remember. *Touchwood for the happy days*

29. Last time you said you loved someone?
Today. Everyday.

30. Meaning behind the name of your blog (Tanya's Kreative Korner)?
Because this is my nook in the big wide world of creative people. Now please don't ask me why the words start with 'K'. I know my spellings. I swear!

31. Last book you read?
The African Trilogy by Chinua Achebe but never got to the end of it.

32. Book you are currently reading?

33. Last show you watched?
How I Met Your Mother. I am lagging behind terribly, I hear you!

34. Last person you talked to?
In person: My husband, Sanket
Chat: My sister, Ritika
Phone: Sanket, again

35. The relationship between you and the person you just texted?
My younger sister, Ritika. Just catching up on what's going on in each other's life.

36. Favorite food?
Anything sweet!

37. Place you want to visit?
Many. There's a new one on the list almost every other day.

38. Last place you were?
Hopping from one store to another, mostly to return stuff and for grocery shopping. 

39. Do you have a crush?
Rahul Dravid. The world knows it, except him.

40. Last time you kissed someone?
Only an hour back and everybody knows who it was.

41. Last time you were insulted?
I have learned to overlook such attempts. Hard luck 'insulter'!

42. Favorite flavor of sweet?
It doesn't really matter, as long as it is sweet.

43. What instruments do you play?
Been years, but I was pretty good at keyboard and harmonium as a kid. 

44. Favorite piece of jewelry?
That's a tough one. Junk, precious, semis... Every piece of my collection is very dear to me.

45. Last sport you played?
Does 2048 on a mobile phone count? If not, the question needs reconsideration because I just reached the 8196 tile a few days back and I am in no mood to miss any opportunity to flaunt it. [So, I very conveniently, mistake the word 'sport' for 'game', only to fit in my 2048 tale ;)]

46. Last song you sang?
Tinga-tinga nanga-punga
Tinga-tinga nanga-punga
Tinga-tinga nanga-punga dost
Tinga-tinga nanga-punga
Tinga-tinga nanga-punga
Tinga-tinga nanga-punga dost
ONLY THOSE LINES!! You cannot even imagine how irritated Sanket is ;)

47. Favorite chat up line?
Hmmm... Something appreciative. Genuinely appreciative and decently delivered.

48. Have you ever used it?
Not as a chat-up chat-up but definitely 'yes' in the broader sense. [ Din't get it? That's exactly what I wanted ;) ]

49.  Last time you hung out with anyone?
Apart from Sanket, I was out for my first pottery class last week. Looking forward to the next one today!

50. Who should answer these questions next? 
I saw answering these questions as a wonderful opportunity to share more about myself with my friends and with the same intent of knowing my fellow bloggers better, I'd love to see these 50 questions answered by Yvette of Aqua Seventy6, Nayana of Cherish Dream Live, Patricia of Colours Dekor, Disha of Design, Decor and Disha, Anne of Hello Newman's and Poppy of Poppy View

  7. And it's great to know you better, and I like your ability to overlook insults. They just aren't worth the time are they?
