20 Questions.. tag time!

Tag time again.. this time Preethi tagged me (No I didn't tag myself.. this is another Preethi I found in the blogger world.. boy do I have a common name!). I just found out that Prats has also tagged me :) (for once I will be making a quick response to your tag Prats) Anyway, this is a 20 questions tag (reminds me of the guessing game we used to play.. ). Here I even get to replace one of the questions with one of my own! Yay!! So here goes.

I won't.. I never open unattended baggages... I am from Coimbatore remember
8.If you meet someone that you love, would you confess to him/her?

Acting .. That would have helped me when I had/ have to lie
20. Name one favorite song of yours.
So many.. but lately it is "Last Christmas... "thanks to Orchid. Nantu has fallen in love with this song too and wants it to keep playing as I sit at the comp. I have added the George Michael version though.. he is a favorite..Also the video reminds us of our Christmas trip to Tennessee and the Smokeys. Such fond memories we have of our trip.

I tag
Orchid - I discovered your love for tags.. yay!!
2b's Mommy - Whenever you are back from vacation and can get to it!!
Lavs - Would love to know more about you.. will take up your tag soon :)

P.S. My Blog linx is acting up and I don't find out when anyone updates.. boohoo!!
P.P.S. Orchid talked about owning an Audi and brought to mind Nantu's obsession with cars. When he grows up he wants to buy a Ferrari. Since only 2 can sit in a Ferari, he says he will take Daddy in it. (Phew, after all that I do for him see what I get in return). But wait he says he will buy me a Maybach!! So I don't really mind!
He has a list that includes thatha, chitti, my cousin, his cousins etc. But the best of them all is what he says he will buy for Athai (My SIL ).
He says he will buy her a remote control car. "Tharakave mudiyadhu" (It can't be opened) he says! I wonder what Athai did to him... He is very fond of his Athai though. He says when he goes to her place, Athai will take care of him. "Amma, nee varalenna parava illai yen athai enna pathupa" (Amma its okay if you don't come, my Athai will take care of me) he says. But she will only get a remote control car in return.. poor Athai.
[P.S. oh yes again.. have you seen my web rank.. it says 9 today.. I don't believe it for a minute.. but still I though a good resounding "yay" was in order!!]

“My mom waiting at the doorstep every day as I came home from college.” Boo boo. I stayed in hostel during my college days, cannot help it coz it was a residential college. How I envy you.
“I never open unattended baggages... I am from Coimbatore remember” My hubby’s cousin was caught stranded in the railway station during the bomb blast time. He recently recounted his experience and it was very scary.
