Rads tagged me with a great tag that I just love. Not only do I get to do almost no work, but I am also doing good for the environment. How? I am recycling :) My old posts, that is.
The rules of the tag are : Post 5 links to 5 of your previously written posts. The posts have to relate to the 5 key words given (family, friend, yourself, your love, anything you like). Tag 5 other friends to do this meme. Try to tag at least 2 new acquaintances (if not, your current blog buddies will do) so that you get to know them each a little bit better.
Yes, I just heard the sound of a dozen people rushing for the exit. Why do people dislike recycled posts, or recycled jokes? Isn’t recycling a great thing to do?
But for those of you who are still on this page, I am certain you will be richly rewarded. I am not certain exactly how, but it involves increasing patience, speed-reading and practising your (Harry Potterish) curses/ spells. Expecto EndOfPage might work, or Silencio WillYouPlease, or NoMora OfYourPostus. Other ideas are welcome.
Here are the links. Yes, you do have to click on at least one of these posts, and comment. I will be checking for comments. No, you can’t get away, so there.
Family: This one was easy. It’s the poem I wrote when my brother completed his Ph.D.
Friend: This is tough. I just realized that I haven’t written about any friends in my blog. Not good. But hey, R is also a friend, right ? So here is a post about R, cricket and sleeping (no, that’s not in order of priority :P )
Yourself: This blog is all about me as it is, so which posts do I choose? Did you know that I can hear sounds that no one else does ?
Love: What are the things I love? After Sleeping, I love Eating. Unfortunately, this involves Cooking, which I am not at all fond of. In my defense, I do try to cook, and I know I am doing lots of good. After all, there’s nothing like bad cooking to aid weight reduction. My (mis)adventures involve making apple pie and samosas, among other things.
Anything I like: I am not a big fan of watching TV. Definitely not NFL, but then you all know that.
I also like to write scifi, and I can tell you how astronauts will take over Mars by sneezing. As you can see, I have many talents, even if all of them are useless.
Now, I have to tag five other people (including at least 2 new acquaintances) to continue the good work of recycling. I am going to pick 5 people whose blogs I love to read. Unlike me, they have been blogging for years and have great blog posts to show off (also unike me). I must admit a selfish intent here – I’d love to know what posts they like best. It saves me the trouble of trawling their blog :P
So here are the bloggers you should all rush off to see:
I hope all of you decide to take up the tag. You can, of course, be creative. So Anantha, if you choose to include Rajni or Dilbert among your friends (or family?), I will believe you :)
