The Tricky Picture Tag

I've been tagged by A (thank you!!!) Its another Q & A style tag, but with a photographic twist!!! The rule is that for every answer you have to do a Google image search and pick a picture on the first page with minimal explanation.

I'd seen this on a few blogs and it seemed quite tricky. It is, but its also a lot of fun to see what images turn up and these are what I got:

1. The age you will be on your next birthday: a quarter of a century!

2. A place you’d like to travel to: (so many, where do I begin???) Top destinations though: Italy and Ireland.

3. Your Favorite place: where the heart is!!!

4. Your favorite food/drink: CHOCOLATE all the way!!!

5. Your favorite pet: No pets allowed!!! (Don't mind them in the zoos or in the wild, but definitely no animals at home)

6. Your favorite color combination: Red and gold ...... like a red moonrise :)

7. Your favorite piece of clothing: Hardly wear them, but I love saris.

8. Your all time favorite song: (again, so many, where do I begin???) Everything I do I do it for you - Bryan Adams.

9. Your favorite TV show: Comedy - Friends; Drama - Lost.

10. Full name of your significant other: My beloved recluse would throttle me if I revealed this!

(Oh my God!!! I know the rules said 'minimal explanation', but how freaky is this???? Viggo Mortensen in the classic LOTR avatar was right there on the first page of results!!!! I think maybe it was the word 'recluse' that did it.......his character is mostly a loner initially. Damn, now I'm just dying to watch all three movies again, but the DVDs are with my sister :( )

11. The town in which you live in: Namma Bengaluru.

12. Your screen name/nickname: Shalom :)

13. Your first job: PR executive.

14. Your Dream Job: an artist - clicking photographs, painting and selling fabrics / glass / wood etc and maker of miscellaneous knick-knacks.

15: Bad Habit you have: Procrastination.

16. Your worst fear: Falling down stairs!!!

17. The one thing you’ll like to do before you die: See as much of this beautiful world as possible.

18. The first thing you’ll buy if you get $1,000,000: A world tour for the family!!!

Ok, so that's me done! I am now going to complicate life for Amrita and Smriti :D

Hope to see this one up soon (well, reasonably soon!!! :P)


  1. enjoyed reading, the picture for 16th Q is hillarious:)

  2. whoa! doin the same blog as per renus command now et tu shalom!

  3. Anonymous7:58 PM

    very entertaining :-)

    i also love saree's though i can't wear them (i just can't function in them). i think indian women look stunning in sarees.

  4. He he he..tag again. :) Time to tighten up the screws and get back to serious tag-reporting :P

    When's your birthday btw??

  5. hee hee the pic of falling down the stairs was the best. i laughed and laughed. i also liked the recluse...just watched all 3 on tv last weekend :).

  6. Renu - thanks!!! I also found the pic very funny, though there is nothing funny about actually falling down stairs (speaking from experience!)

    Amrita - yup yup, et me too!!! Look at it this way, more people want to know about you :)

    Agnes - yeah, I'm not very comfortable in saris either, but I think practice makes perfect; still practicing but perfection's a long way off!!!

    Smriti - yup, this is a seriously tricky one!!! And I'm a Feb baby :) How about you?

    A - Alright, rub it in, rub it in......(sigh) to think there was a time when all the dvds were just lying around at home and I could've watched them at any time, but I didn't.....(more sighs)

  7. Its not because of falling..but the child and then what he is saying..first chk if anybody saw me then call 911,it made me laugh..the kids are so vain..they are more concerned about somebody fseeing them falling then getting help.

  8. Renu - I know what you meant....I fell flat on the road once; I was busy chatting with my friends and I tripped over a small bump and next thing I knew my nose was touching the concrete!!! One of my friends picked me up and my immediate reaction was to look around to see if anyone else saw that instead of checking to see if I was hurt anywhere. So I could really relate to this picture :D :D

  9. ooh.. fun read
    i just made a note that i dont have anything in red and gold together., thats an awesome combination
    am yet to do this tag

  10. ISH - yeah, that's a classic combo isn't it? :)

  11. I'm making HAY in May...and eating it too :P

    You know I have met very few people whose birthday falls in Feb..either I'm not seeing enough of the world, or only the best ones come out in Feb (coz evry one of them that i;ve met is a gee-nee-ous) :P

  12. Smriti - May baby huh? That would make you......a Taurean??? I know lots of people born in fact both of my sisters-in-law are Feb born. But I'm perfectly willing to accept your logic :P :D

  13. have an award for u :D

  14. Amrita - yay!!!!! Thanks so much :D

  15. Merry christmas and a very happy new year to u !

  16. this was such fun, Shalom ..i am still laughing at some of them....particularly the Falling down stairs one!!!! :)

  17. So u Aquarius or Piscean?????
    I love tht red-gold combination too.

    And procrastination is the story of my life...even to call for home delivery I delay & then forget & many a time ended up with hardly anything edible ie on the brkfast table..
    The kids look at the unappetising stuff & then accuse me "U forgot to call the shop again".

    And I fell down the stairs last week....pure carelessness I tell u:-S. The way I fell I thot I surely broke my ankle but THANK GOD I just escaped with a sprain.

  18. Renu - thank you and wish you the same!!!

    Moi - you should pick up the tag.....damn, I should've mentioned that!

    Reflections - Oh you poor thing!!! I'm so sorry!!! I too had just a mild sprain when I had fallen years ago.....but I still remember the sheer terror I felt as I fell, so my complete sympathies.

    And while I procrastinate on a lot of things, I'd never delay to call for food :P

    And about the star sign, sis always said there was something fishy about me :P :D

  19. the same 18 questions on so many blogs. Heck, I passed the tag on to so many people myself. YET it's so much fun to go through the answers. And my god, the number of lives FRIENDS has touched is amazing!

  20. Mumbai Diva - its fun to see what pics turn up, some were absolutely hilarious. And just yesterday, I was watching some Friends reruns, episodes I must've seen at least 10 times before.....and they still crack me up! That's the magic of brilliant comedy.
