She is My McLaren

She is very haughty
yet soft inside
the more challenging, the more interesting
but very hard to handle
You have to be on the toes
Like a McLaren F1
But once you get acqainted its fun
A wonderful experience
But if u lose control at 375 km/hr
You are dead
Cannot rev the engine up initially
she will cause wheel spin
But she gets into the groove
then she is really smooth
But as a driver u have got to be very skilled
Demanding indeed but worth it and full filling
But very expensive
Really a driver’s car
She is my McLaren..
And, I will not lose her for anything else..

The 5 Secret Traits Tag January 16, 2007

I have been tagged by Revathi with this interesting question, To tell 5 things about me, that the world does not know.. Hmmm. let me see..

1. I always tap my fingers producing various rhythms on whatever I find, literally all the time(except while I am sleeping) and my fingers dont get tired at all. I just can’t stop it.

2. All the pens in my pen-case should be aligned in the same direction, that too particularly the nib pointing to my left. I can’t stand if it is otherwise, though I can justify this by saying it is convenient, and when I am riding my scooterette to or from college, my bag should hang on the vehicle, in front of me in such a way that its brand name should face me, else I will pull over, re arrange, and re-start my journey.

3. This is my favourite actually, before commencing any examination, I toss my pen in the air, with the cap open (nib vulnerable), with my eyes CLOSED!, such that it completes a full 360 deg rotation, and catch it, 2 times. And, for the record, throughout the past 6 years, I have never dropped my pen while doing that..

4. Whenever I face a numerical problem, I only consider significant digits and not the actual size of the numbers, and then arrive at the final answer by using the real world knowledge, that is telling whether it is say 125 or 125000 or 1.25, thereby beating the calculator almost all the time. Also, I can give the quotient on diving pretty much any 2 numbers, to any no of decimal places, more accurately and faster than the calculator that’s available.

5. I re-live/re-enact past events which angered or excited me or was cherishable, and future(probable) events, in my head with modifications as to how I must have reacted, rather than how I actually reacted, so vividly that I stop only when I start smiling, talking to myself, grinding my teeth, or clicnching my fist..

I tag anyone who reads this, particularly those who comment. It’s fun! Ok anyway I tag Ravi Kumar, Kalpaka and Priyadarshini.
