23 August 2007


The last two days of the work week have been slated as the blog update days in my to-do list. These days are anticipated with much eagerness. However, this week has been pretty much a roller-coaster of emotions (yet again) brought about by a met expectation. To lessen the blow of a possible disappointment, I make it a point to expect the worst. Hence, I would be happier if my expectation is unmet. I can not summon my reticent self to narrate the object of my disappointment nor find anything remotely cheerful. I actually dreaded the scheduled day for a blog update. Then Lyjunna turned it all around by merely tagging me! Finally, something to add to my pensive mumblings for the week! Except that I had to rack my brains for 8 (eiiigghhht?!) weird things about me. Grrr...


Here are the rules for “8 facts”:
In the “8 facts,” you share 8 things that your readers don’t know about you. At the end, you tag 8 other bloggers to keep the fun going.
1. Each blogger must post these rules first.

2. Each blogger starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, a blogger needs to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment they’re tagged, and to ask them to read your blog.


8 QuaintQuill Quirks

1. I'm awake all night. I enjoy my nocturnal life of cyber-prowls or burying my nose in between pages. My sleeping hours are from 2 pm - 9 pm. One can argue that this is probably a remnant of my call center life. Nah! Since high school, I am awake until the wee hours of the morning but back then, it was more of being tied up in telephone conversations. I remember how I would wait until everyone is asleep before I sneak out into the living room to use the phone.

2. The sight of snakes and other reptiles gives me nightmares. When a homework requires research, I would ask my sister to check the encyclopedia for pictures of these vile creatures before I open it. At 8 years old, a cousin once tricked me into watching a comedy movie but once we got inside the cinema, it turned out it was one of those snake movies. I wanted to cry and run home but I didn't want to give my cousin the satisfaction of my agony so I just covered my eyes with my hands in the entire movie. But the hissing sound was enough to give me nightmares for weeks. I would miss several Harry Potter scenes as well because of this fear but on the 5th occasion I watched Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, I was able to watch the entire movie including the one with the boa in it.

3. I can't go anywhere without a hanky. I feel naked without it.

4. I would put rosary beads on my door knob. It gives me the secure feeling that no evil entity seen or unseen (?!) can trespass my room.

5. No matter how much I deny it, flowers (especially tulips) and a good eye contact (chinky eyes at that!) would win me over all the time hook, line and sinker.

6. I keep saying I'm bored even when I am in the middle of doing something. Right at this moment of writing, I am bored. Sigh.

7. I carry a big bag everywhere I go and inside it are my notebook, pen, fan, book, mobile phone and two different pouches. One for toiletries and the second small pouch for medicines.

8. Eight Crazy Nights made me cry buckets. I'm such a twat.


Here's the good part... I can tag eight other bloggers.. nyahahahh..
