I have been tagged By Adi.

Rules of the game.
1. Name the person who tagged you.
2. Eight things about you.
3. Tag six people

  1. I think most of you know quite a bit about me. I am a wife and a mother of two and a sister. I am originally from Bangalore, and have lived in the U.S. all of my adult life.
  2. I am sensitive, ( J thinks I am ultra sensitive). I love nature, especially the sun, moon and the stars. I enjoy the seasons and would love to live on a farm.
  3. I used to be upset about little things but have learnt not to let these things upset me. There are so many other things to think about , no use sweating about the small stuff.
  4. I love to read and did not know how much I loved to write until I started to blog.
  5. I am not a very religious person, spiritual in a sense, I think there is one God and we all take different paths to reach this god.
  6. I do not like guns and violence. I think most problems can be solved with non-violence.
  7. The simple things in life excite me.
8. I am blessed with a wonderful husband , children , a large family and many beautiful
9. I love everything that has to do with the universe and OuterSpace.
10.I love all my blogger friends out there. Even though sometimes I don't feel so well,
reading your posts makes me smile.

I have been tagged By Hip Grandma and Alex To name six weird things about me. I have done this tag before, but decided to do it again because I can come up with more than six weird things
  1. I love to dance and always talk about dancing, the weird thing is I really don't know how to dance.
  2. When I wake up in the morning I have to make my bed, even when I don't feel so good.
  3. I check and recheck the stove top to make sure it is turned off a number of times children always laugh about this.
  4. I am always waiting to see the end of a show or a movie even after it has ended. Pretty weird don't you think?
  5. I love to sit at the beach and watch the waves but I am extremely scared of the water.
  6. I was told to tag six more people, the weird thing is I cannot stop at six. So I am going to tag the next 10 bloggers who comment on this post.


Mumbai Guy 2:58 PM  

Cancerians are always sensitive. Me included.

Hey, Checking up Gas stove many times before leaving house is what I can say happens to me all the time. I am always in doubt whether I left it on. Lolz. So am not the only one at this. ;)

Twisted DNA 6:09 PM  

LOL at the stove top thing. You are a good mom :) Moms are always worried about keeping a safe environment for the kids and I think it sticks with them even after the kids grow up.

I think I did both the tags before so you can't tag me. :D

Neers 8:21 PM  

:) Starry, i think, i have told you some zillion times... its great to ne here... always brings a fond smile!

alex 8:42 PM  


"I check and recheck the stove top to make sure it is turned off a number of times children always laugh about this."

Being careful, lol...i had a good laugh too!

The small things in life excite me too. :)

Bhargav 10:02 PM

samuru999 8:13 AM  

Nice job on the tags!
neers tagged me to do the weird things one.... I guess I will have to do it... as I told her I would!
For some reason I don't like to do tags though!

I also love to sit at the beach, and watch the waves.... but, I love to be in the water!

I've done the rechecking of the stove thing.
Once we were half-way to Denver, and I was not sure I turned it off.
We came back(and my hubby was not
a happy camper!)
Good thing we did come back...
as our garage door was open.
(it was not me that left it open though...
hubby did it!)

I love all of nature too...
and always visted my grandfather's
farm when I was a little girl.
He had horses....and I would ride them like the wind!

I hope when your back is all better...you can get up... and dance the night away...as you love to dance so much!!!!

Take care!


ufukhati 8:24 AM  

starry noghts,

You play games and you play very well.

What books are you reading now?
Cookbook or Parenting or The 10 Things About Tagging!

ufukhati 8:31 AM  


"noghts" should be read "nights".

Sorry for that..

Sigma 9:47 AM  

Starry Night,

Thanks for dropping by at my blog. I stopped by to say hello and thanks.
I have just visited your blog, and saw your last post. You have done the tags so well. You have a way :-)

Sorry, i still have not taken up your tag from coupla posts ago. Im not a taggy person and i dont think i have ever taken up a tag. I just cant get myself to write about myself. Though I can write bout my pics endlessly.

priya 1:23 PM  


U have become a cool techie now playinh with your template. This one looks cool and nice blue...

As women we are common to double check the kitchen gadgets very much..
People ing eneral are all sensitive starry and what makes us upset/ angry is based on situations.

Maya Cassis 3:21 PM  

hey there!
it was nice to know so much more about you
this was a great attempt at the tag that's doing the rounds.
I still have it pending and reading yours inspires me to run and do mine.
Hey i love dancing too though am not trained and don't even dance all that much ,but when i do...it feels like I was born to dance hahah

starry nights 3:32 PM  

Margie..thanks. I know I have done that a couple of times. I also check and recheck if the front door is locked a couple of times.I am not OC though.

KK 7:31 PM  

Hey Nice tagging Starry. :)
I too do many of your wierd things that you have mentioned. Except for your re-checking of stove I do everything else :)
Your template looks really awesome, I like it very much.

Lera 7:34 PM  

Starry, Impressive read ! nice to get to know more about your sensitive & compassionate side .Not to mention it's nice to see your blog going Blue, It looks very cool capturing your fascination for outer space,indeed a starry experience......:)
I would say your thoughts are practical in being careful and cautious...hey, you are very much like me when it comes to keep re-checking on the door locks and stove....;) Plan to re- check your blog once I'm back from vacation.

Neers 7:37 PM  

hi!! hows you??

Nisha 7:46 PM  

My one wierd thing would have to be, i like reading the end pages of a book first and i then start from the beginning. I am a sucker for good endings so i like knowing how things are going to end:-)

Wierd i know, but i cant stop myself from doing it.

Anonymous,  8:23 PM  

I check and recheck the stove top to make sure it is turned off a number of times children always laugh about this.***I used to do all that before marriage when after coming home late in the night, cook the food, at times i used to forget to put it off...lolz
