And.... another tag! This one I call "The Six Tag"

This one's from Lis of ' In getting there'
Here are the 6 rules.
  • Link to the person who tagged you.
  • Post rules on your blog.
  • Write six random things about yourself.
  • Tag six people at the end of your post
  • Let each person know they've been tagged.
  • Let the tagger know when you've posted your own randomness .

So, here are my 6!

  1. I love my name and it means 'lamp' in most Indian languages. My parents named me after the Bible verse "Let your light shine before all that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."... hey.. have I mentioned tis already in my blog? don't remember and am too lazy to go back and check.
  2. I wore glasses -soda bottle thick ones- for 13 years of my life until my parents thought me old and unscatterbrainly enough to handle wearing contact lenses! (psst! I was 20 by the time I got my first lenses!)
  3. I'm in love with my hometown, miss it like mad sometimes & can speak for ages about it!
  4. I am horrible at dealing with teenagers and shudder to think of what I will be like when my kids grow up
  5. I can play a little guitar, and love playing the little I can , yet have not taken the effort to learn anything new since I was 17!
  6. I am pro-adoption and anti-abortion!

aaaaaaaand.... i dont want to tag anyone! Am breaking one rule! sokay!!! if you like this one, please feel free to follow the thread!!


  1. Ohh, I like that your name means "lamp" ~ Lamp into my soul, there's a song that goes like that. How lovely!

    "horrible at dealing with teenagers" ~ I never would have thought that about you. There's a natural calmness and beauty to your writings. I think when your child is in teenage years, that you will amaze yourself with how well you go through those years.

  2. I'm curious, what is your name?

  3. wow thanks for sharing your tag....

  4. No.2---and hence my name for you.. :)..but i feel kinda stupid calling you that now since you have contacts.. :(

  5. i just read your reply to my comment for two posts down...this anonymous friend is S..and're lucky to have waited just 3 months..see you soon!!

  6. Aleta: Thanks for your confidence in my "teenache" handling capabilities! I sure hope thats how things turn out!

    lis: since, my name already came out by fluke in an earlier post, I'll tell you... My name is Deepa. the 'd' in my name is pronounced like the 'th' in the word 'that' and not like the 'd' in 'dog'!!!

    Sukku: You're welcome! Please feel free to follow the tag on your blog too!

    Mr Anonymous S***Y!
