Meme - 7 Random Facts About Me

I was hesitant when Sunita tagged me for this meme of 7 Random facts about me, because I don’t know whether there are any facts about me at all. But when Tee tagged too, I thought, what the heck. So here it goes.

  1. I am a cat fanatic. I have had 22 cats over 10 years before marriage. I can speak cat (like Dori speaks whale) and I can even understand their body language. Someday I want to write a book about cats.
  2. I have a great passion for music. Though I learnt Carnatic music for 7 years and have lost touch, I still can appreciate music in almost any form. You can find me humming a tune most of the times.
  3. I am a cartoonholic. Not only that, I love comic strips. My favourites are Calvin and Hobbes, Tin Tin and Peanuts, in that order.
  4. I and Usha at Samaikalam Vaanga were classmates during our post-graduation.
  5. I can easily start a conversation even with a stranger and can make friends within minutes. My ex-boss and a good friend calls me ‘Nokia Gal’, because I am always ‘Connecting People’.
  6. I landed in the world of food blogging through Gopalsworld. I came to his blog through a Google search and was drawn toward his writings. I noticed Shammi’s comment in one of his posts and was expecting yet another interesting and funny blog as her brother's. Interesting and funny, her blog is. But I noticed something else too, her food blog. From one click to another.. Well, rest is history (ya right!!) :).
  7. I cannot make pumpkin pie. Both the times I have tried making it had been more than disastrous. Ooey gooey mess it was. I have vowed never to make pumpkin pie again.
I tag Bharathy, Live to cook, Usha, Nupur, Susan, Rasa Malaysia, Komal and mrshbt. Do it only if you have the time and inclination. No pressure :)

Hey Suganya.. it was good to read about you. That's a lot of cats and it was funny to read about you talking cat like dory talks whale.
I love Tintin too!! I used to have 2 Tintin comics bound together and used to read them over and over again. My husband loves it too so soon after we got married we went to Landmark and bought most of the collection.

Tee said...

Its good that you changed your mind and played along. Loved reading your MeME. You talk 'cat'...I have to listen to this :)
And 'Nokia Gal' is such a cute name!

Richa said...

i too like tin tin, good to know more @ u.

Susan said...

And now that you are married, Suganya, how many cats to you have? You and my Willem would have tons to talk about. He's the chattiest kit I've ever had; his vocabulary grows by the day.

Great meme. Don't blame yourself about those pumpkin pies; I'm sure it was the recipe/s. A lot are a total waste of time, energy and ingredients.

Asha said...

Hello Cat lady and a Nokia gal!:P
I am dog lover.I hate phones!Hahaha!!We have loads of Astrerix comics,love them.
Good to know you little more than just as photo gal!:D

Priya said...

22 in 10 years....22 in 10 years...its going to take a while to digest that number !!
Nokia Gal, I am going to agree to that looking at the presence of your blog in just a couple of months :) Hope to get to know you moree :D

DEEPA said...

Hey suganya ...Nice to read about your ME ME ....I love cats too but never had one .My mom used to always say that she had one "me" is enough ...

Sharmi said...

hey Nokia gal, that was a cute meme. really enjoyed reading it. I to keep talking. though it changed after marriage as my hubby stays mum.:(

Linda said...

Hi Suganya, loved reading your meme -- you are a witty gal y'know -- thought there were no facts about you! LOL :)

I'm a cat fanatic too, but haven't had 22. Lots of cats talk with their eyes, don't you think? :)

At Thanksgiving I will post Pumpkin Pie for you -- if you only make it once a year it usually comes out ok ;)

Lee Ping said...

Dear Suganya,

It is very nice of you to remember me and tagging me.

I will come up with 7 interesting random facts about myself.

What a fun tag. :)

Nupur said...

So you are the "cat whisperer", eh? Do you have a kitty now? I am sure they are kittens in your local animal shelter who would love a mommy like you :) I would love to have a cat too, but Dale would never speak to me again!
Thanks for tagging me, but I wrote this meme already (some months ago)!

bee said...

enjoyed learning more about you, suganya. i'm a classical music junkie as well.

musical said...

Lovely meme :). i love cats too =^.^=

i am waiting for your proposed book, promise me an autographed copy :).

btw, you love cats and didn't list Garfield as a favorite cats ;) i adore him, and Calvin and Hobbes :-D

Vcuisine said...

Suganya said...

Hey Laavanya, I have the whole Tin tin collection too. It never gets old.

Tee, Trust me, its not that pretty :D

Thanks Richa.

Susan, I dont have any cat with me right now. Can you believe that :o. I know you are a cat lover too from yr profile. And pie, I dont know whether I can even think abt trying to make 'em again :(

Asha, You hate phones? Sometimes I hate talking over phone too. But never can't live w/o it.

Priya, YES YES.. 22 cats in 10 years. At one time there were 6 cats from 3 generations. You cannot sneak to the kitchen w/o them following you. They would go to my Granny whenever she opens her medicine strip thinking thats some snack. My granny had a hard time explaining them night after night.

Deepa, My mom said that when I said I wanted a Chimpanzee :D

Sharmi, Sometimes it happens. But opposite attracts, don't you agree?

Oh Linda, every time I watch Shrek and when Boots make that expression, I go Awwwww... They all have big expressive eyes. And pie.. hmmm... Lemme decide that later after seeing yr recipe :(

Lee Ping, It sure is a fun tag. Hoping to learn more about you.

Nupur, "Cat whisperer" I love that. I can add that to my signature hence forth.. What say you :) I know I can adopt as many cats as I want, but I travel a lot. This has been the first 3 months I haven't done a long trip. I don't wanna leave them alone so often. But someday, I will adopt at least one.

Bee, Glad to know that :)

Musical, C'mon. I don't know whether my book will be worth reading. But you have a copy, Gal. Its funny that your mentioning of Garfield made me thinking for a while. I love Garfield, its fluffy tail, soft tummy, its grin. But I realise that am not that much drawn to the strips. May be I should refresh my memory. Will start readin them again and vl add to my next meme ;)

Viji, Thank you!

Nirmala said...

What a fun read! Nice to know about others who talk 'cat'. I've been talking cat and dog ever since I can remember.
Last year, after a gap of 15 years I had a pet. I thought I forgoten to talk cat....but it is like riding a bike.

Seema said...

Nice Meme girl. So you are a cat lover. I am kind of afraid of cats. I loved the name Nokia girl. Hee hee and just like you i am a cartoonoholic. Love to read them and watch them.

Lakshmi said...

Hi Suganya, First time to your blog. It was fun reading your MEME. I love reading TinTin books. Keep connecting people!

Vaishali said...

Suganya, I just chanced upon this - I didn't know you were a cat fanatic. 22 cats is quite amazing.
My Pubm and Pie are always talking. It's funny how they actually respond with their voices when we call out their names. They are our first cats, but I can assure you they've converted us into devoted cat persons.
Nice read. Good to learn more about you.
