5+1 addictions of life, another tag

Taking up Nims’s tag : list the top 5 addictions of life. As usual, making that 6.

1. Sleep or else day-dream: an angelic habit. You could shed brains, you could waste time and you could have your own set of double chins and your own little flab, and even nurture it – what fun! Sneeking in day dreaming after reading it another blog. Cant believe I missed it, thats what I do all the hours I am not sleeping!

2. Internet: Growl. You could put it to good use or you could use it to waste time. I am not going to reveal which choice is mine. Growl.

3. Magi Noodles: Great choice of food. You could give yourself the benefit of losing all fitness and turning into a fat unhealthy mess. If you are lucky, you could end up with appendicitis.

4. Books: Like them lots. I use it to stuff bags from library, to keep beside pillows, to pay huge fines and to not read. I know, life is so good!

5. Tom n Jerry and The Wonder Years: Absolute entertainment. You could waste time by watching 8th and 9th reruns. And after that switch to Top Cat and Full House.

6. Music: MP3 player or youtube constantly in use. When I can’t find both I use my mouth. You can play ‘em (youtube/mouth) aloud at 3 in the night. Your neighbors would appreciate that.

Stopping at 6. Friends from college would know I have a particular affinity/addiction for the number, most of them ended up writing 6 pages of curses, err praises in my autograph book. (Liz, Krips, Zac, Divs, Nims, Laks, Lovly, Sandeep listening?)

Thanks Nims, without this, my blog should have been inactive for long.

Tagging 6 –

1. Tedy – been a while since he wrote in any of his blogs – and that’s a lot!

2. M.Rose – absence a little too loud. Come back!

3. Kavi – newest blog friend. Not sure if he does tags, but it’d be interesting to read!

4. Hari – Tit for tat. Bad hair for good tag. Err that doesn’t make sense but take this up, will you?

5. Usha – I miss her…!

6. Silverine – Most famous blogger I know, well at least in my google reader. Guaranteed to be some promising entry!


  1. Ah ! I usually dont do tags. But this just could be an exception…!

    Thanks !! Will write !

  2. Ok,ok. I’ll come back. Just didn’t get much inspiration nowadays. I didn’t wanna write just anything. The mood has to strike, you know. Fortunately, u r blessed in that department. By the way, you have nailed almost all of my addictions here-music, books,sleep & internet. He, he. But i’ll pick up the tag.
    Answer for earlier question-Yes,I’m a teacher, lecturer actually.

  4. @Kavi, thank you!

    @M.Rose, hmm you are right, no point writing when you dont feel like. Take it up when you are ready dear teacher girl 🙂

    @Hari, I didnt know you were showing signs of blog-withdrawal symptoms or that you were netless and busy. Thanks for doing the tag bro :-). It was real good.

  5. Ha! I have but one addiction – the computer. This includes internet, coding, blogging and other uses. But its much more serious than the other ’sissy’ addictions out there. Turning on the system is the first thing I do when I wake up and switching it off is the last thing I do before going to bed. And I sit in front of it for all the time in between those two actions.

    They don’t call me a Schizophrenic for nothing.

    Note: sorry about the last comment – pushed the submit button too soon. Can you delete it?
