Take A Break and Pick A Tag

It is always fun to pick up tags and when Debo electronically passed me the ABC Award and the Elevens Tag,I threw myself into it.So here is the award which made my day.

But Debo will hand over the award only if I show the world that I know all the 26 alphabets,that too in its correct order.To make my task challenging,there is an extended rule too.And the rule says: “You have to describe in a word or two, the first thing that comes to your mind, about you, when you think of the letter of the alphabet.”

Since boasting is legal and whites lies are not banned,I am going to honor the alphabets with my qualities.

B – Bookworm
E – Elegant
F – Fanatic
G – Gorgeous (Whoa!! yes,I am 😉 )
H Hitch
– Indian (the proud one)
Jughead (unfortunately yes,at times)
Keralite (till I die)
LLoner (when I’m depressed)
M – Miser (round the clock)
N – Nuisance (when I’m with my gang of friends)
O – Owl (I am a nocturnal creäture)
P – Princess of my Dad
Q – Quiet (when I’m hurt)
R – Romantic (blush blush)
S – Small (friends describe me as “Small is dangerous 😀 )
T – Talkative
– Universal
V – Vibrant
W – Wanderer in my dreams
X – X’mas cake lover
YYoung (for a lifetime)
Z – Zealous

Before grabbing the Elevenses tag,let me explain you the rules.

Below are the 11 questions which I should answer Debo to get the Elevenses Tag.Yo!! Here we go..

1. Which is your favorite blog post? Why is that so?
