A Meme about Me

I just realised with horror that both my previous posts were exceptionally long. I must have been carried away by my new found enthusiasm.

Another thing I noticed is that I'm only 3 posts away from surpassing the number of posts on this blog last year, so as a way to keep up the momentum, and the small promise I made to myself earlier this year to blog more, as well as to reach more than 12 posts this month (my highest no of posts was in May with a staggering 12 posts and I don't see why I should not attempt to beat that), I have decided to do one of the memes that I was tagged with some time ago. This one's from Anita as well.

I think the freedom of making choices

A Yamaha C40 I think... and loads of TP in a moment of madness

-8 people to tag:-
I chose not to tag anyone, but feel free to use this whenever you like


  1. So you're playing to spend a great deal of time on the crapper playing the guitar? The answer to the second question made me smile :)

    And you and I share almost the same love of music. And I didn't think anyone outside of Australia knew about Silverchair.


  2. I didn't mind the long posts at all. I was fascinated by the experience you had. It was a bit less extreme that I anticipated from your earlier descriptions.

  3. orhan: that was the initial plan. i had the noble intention of entertaining people with my rendition of wonderwall. sadly, I believe the c40 gently weeps due to neglect!

    Oh yeah, silverchair is quite known here especially after their Anthem for the year 2000.

    travis: well, that's good to know. I'm glad it wasn't as extreme as initially described based on previous participants descriptions (which proves the point they were trying to drive into us about how perceptions differ) Who knows I made it sound not so bad, but someone who goes later might think it was teribble!

  4. Thanks for doing this meme. You've got some pretty interesting answers. Of all the bands you've named, only two are familiar to me - Silverchair and the Darkness.

  5. You're welcome. It was kind of fun. As for the music, most of the songs were famous in the late 90's. and one is from the 70's.

  6. Love your wicked sense of humour ;)

  7. Glad that my wicked sense of humour is appreciated! :)
