tagged!!

i’m not the most happy person when I know I have left something undone…..the nagging feeling that I have something I haven’t taken care of is just too overwhelming sometimes…..so its been difficult to live with this tag….for more than a respectable period of time…..but oh nags!! Believe me when I say that it has been on my mind all the time!! Plus the shame of having waited this long and not had anything spectacular to say…..i always wonder why I cant be as witty or interesting or even sarcastic sometimes…when I read other’s blogs…but then hey…this is me….. so here goes the me me….it comes with a set of rules…. Which I have just copied and pasted from Nags post….

Here are the rules:
* Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
* When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
* At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag.
* Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged.

i don’t have a first / middle name…I just have one name…somehow two names sounded so much more exotic…till people told me my own name was pretty exotic too….so for want of another option, I choose Beulah, which is my mother’s maiden name……but i am choosing BEULAH - my mother's first name.....

B: believer – lets make that “blind believer” in love, in the good in people and in the wings that are spread over me…yeah go on…laugh all you agnostics….i believe in the hand that protects and provides…

E: Enthusiastic – err, that I was called Enthu Cutlet during college should account for something…. Excite able also quite closely fits as a description for me….. infact K tells me that I should show more restraint….the high pitched voice, twinkling eyes and barely concealed smile is a dead give away…but what the hell!!

U: underrated – am a big fan of underrated stuff….sort of put in my two cents and spread the word….from a book to an actor I love to follow things that receive less attention than they deserve….i revel in their talent and rejoice in their successes…they’re so much more than they are made out to be….more power to them

L: Laugh – there are few things that I like better than a good laugh…..i can do it alone with a book that sends me into raptures or a FRIENDS rerun….i can do it in small groups and part of a melee …at movies and otherwise….sometimes quietly reminiscing over the past …its easy to laugh…now that it has passed….

A: avoidables – anger ….. this one I used to easily fall prey to….now I am older and hopefully wiser….aggressive / arrogant – I know I can come on as both….used to bother me more than I liked…now I take it in my stride…cant please everyone at all times…and I am not going to bleed myself by attempting to do it….but confidence most of the times is mistaken as arrogance and to hell with all those who make that error…..

H: Happy: that’s what I feel most of the times…. And I am thankful for all the things that happen to make me feel this way…..for the good times and the bad and all the times in between….. I just sometimes can’t deal with people who grudge other’s happiness…. Make them feel they are undeserving of it and hope that their life looks better through another mans misery…..also homesick…somehow….memories always take me back…to the home I grew up in…the family that was…and without things like attached bathrooms and marbled floors and modular kitchens…we still had the best times….sometimes I feel homesick for the home of my childhood and youth….thats where I became most of what I am today….

And now I tag………umm…no one actually…. This is open to anyone who wants to do this…. Whew!! Thank god I’ve done this finally!!
