[Photo Coutesy : jamuraa]

got this tag this Maverrick who got it from Sailor who got it from Sneha.
[I hope the tag is not an Evil plan by some Evil Warlord to get information about me so that he can overpower me and take over the world].
Here goes..
1)What is your occupation?
I am a central goverment employee*.
*Conditions Apply
( Psst. I heard there is no value in the marriage market for Software engineers. We are a depreciating asset now.)

2)What colour are your socks now?
Never ask a bachelor about his socks >:-

3)What are you listening to now?
I'm hearing Bhumika's voice on the phone persuading me to go to innovative film city this weekend.

4)What was the last thing you ate?
Lemme see:
Wheat flour, (UN)cooked on a flat or slightly concave iron griddle and
Dark yellow colour potato, tomato and onion paste sprinkled with garlic seasoning..
For those illiterate guys, lets say : Roti and aloo curry from the cafeteria.

5)Can you drive a stick shift?
Sorry,I do not know golf. ;)
[searches on Wiki what a stick shift is..]
hmph!!! a vehicle with manual transmission.
Why cant the question be :
Can you drive a vehicle where you have to change the gear manually?
[You don't know to how much extent my wild imagination went to derive the meaning of a STICK SHIFT]
Answer : I can drive and I am a pretty cool driver, but expensive. Last time I drove it cost me around 10,000 bucks.
The back of a stick shift bus came and hit the front of my stick shift car. Not my mistake. Why was the back of the bus parked there?
Indians should be more aware and careful while driving stick shifts . I mean who gave these bus drivers liscence to drive a stick shift.

6)Last person you spoke to on phone?
You know.. Salma Hayek..
See I knew you wouldn't believe.
I have an alternate answer ready for those who didn't believe that : the Airtel Broadband Service Guy!

7)Do you like the person who sent you this?
I know Chandan sent this so that he could make me say I like him.
Not the type you think I am, man. aaargh...

8)How old are you today?
Old enough (and 6 years extra) to legally do the FOUR LETTER WORD.. V.O.T.E.

Why did u have to put such a question in when I am trying to forget the last movie
I watched? BTW its Revolutionary Road.. ( strong sense of sleepiness takes over!!!)

14)Favourite day of the year?
Salary Day.. :)

15)How do you vent out your anger?
I once told my dad I wanted a missile launcher for my birthday. I wanted to try it on the School's official Bully. My dad being a spoil sport didn't get me one.
So my only source of comfort has been my innocent pillow which gets beaten up when I really feel like beating the shit out of someone.

18)Do you want your friends to email you?
Yes. Esp. those which say - if you dont forward you will be cursed with constipation for 7 years,7 months and 7 days. In my humble opinion the recession has been caused by people who haven't forwarded such mails and have got the curse of the Email-Server-Gods over our Software Fraternity.
