The Very First Award on WordPress! (Also, find within seven little known facts about me.)

And that is my very first AWARD on WordPress 😀

In the life and time of Orkut, it was the ‘in’ thing to give your profiles a caption and swayed by the trend even I came up with one for myself, ‘Versatility Personified’. Truth be told, the caption remotely holds true for me, perhaps one of the few things I exude versatility in is my taste in television or my shoe wardrobe for that matter. However, as per a recent knowledge, to the credit of a follower by the name of Alienora, my blog exhibits versatility. Since someone as versatile, witty and clever as her thinks so, I have chosen to take her word as true. Thank you so much Alienora, for your kindness and nominating me for my first award on WordPress. After a month of blogging, I was familiarized with the existence of WordPress Awards, since then I have ardently waited for my first one, at times eying them with envy and at times with sheer hope.

There is a quote from the television series Suits, “It’s good that you haven’t watched it so you can still have the pleasure of watching it for the first time.” Modifying it a little, I would say it was good that I didn’t get an award until I got it because indeed nothing/never can be as thrilling as the first time.

Now as I promised and as the protocol calls for, the Seven Little Known Facts About Me, as follows;

  1. When I am  angry, I like cleaning up things, it’s as bad as an obsessive compulsive disorder.
  2. I am a North Indian who hates Paneer/Cottage Cheese and trust me it’s a mortal sin in a North Indian family.
  3. I am terrible with directions/ways. I think I have a very short attention span for keeping track of ways, my mind is easily diverted to the billboards and hoardings.
  4. At times, I can cry for even a single mark in an exam.
  5. I have an immense fetish for shoes and any given number cannot satisfy me.
  6. I can’t say No to people, I have done assignments for people even at the cost of my leisure.
  7. I don’t let people including family and friends to easily know about my likes, dislikes or allegiances.  I think I like the mystique around me.

And given below are the bloggers who fit the mold of versatility in my perception

  1. Chronicles of an Anglo-Swiss
  2. The Whimsical Circumlocutor
  3. Geek Ergo Sum
  4. Miles to Walk
  5. suzie81’s blog
  6. Black and White Heart
