Day8: 14 facts about myself

Marathon Bloggers' next topic would definitely let the narcissist inside me indulge. I will try hard to make this a bit interesting for the other's though. So here are 14 "amazing" facts about this "me, myself and moi" creature.

1. When I was probably 6-7 years old, I was bitten/scratched (nobody could actually clarify which and I was just super dazed when it happened) by a neighbor's dog.  I remember that my sister used to periodically check on the dog to see if was ok for a few days after that. I was terrified of dogs for many many years. Now I am seriously considering having a dog as a pet (Texas being a super friendly pet state and all...)

2. I am the quintessential Jack of all trades, master of none. I dabble into too many things - writing, photography, drawing, running and the list goes on. As someone put it for me, while the horizontal line of my talents "T" is quite long, the vertical line is rather short.:-S

3. Decorating my apartment is something I love to do. My handy work can be on full display on certain things. This one got mercilessly pushed to our washroom. It doesn't look that bad right?!

4. My teacher in high school nicknamed me "Absent Minded Professor" for some of my lapses. My best so far has been forgetting my brand new phone at Macy's, which I had purchased an hour before on Thanksgiving day. Very thankfully, I found my precious item. I will argue to the end of the earth though if someone calls me absentminded.

5. I have loooong toes. A lady whom I was meeting for the second time greeted me saying "Ah! I couldn't place your face in my mind, but the second I looked at your feet, I recognized you. :-O. Who ever says that! 99% of my shoes are hence close toed. Thanks to my grandma --> dad --> me inheritance. Very rich I say!

6. I learnt swimming thrice and still can't swim! :-( I will keep it at it until I can finally atleast drift through water somehow.

7. Once, I had a close call while driving my car in downtown San Francisco. I was taking a turn and so was a huge truck whose rear tire (which was the height my hatchback), sort of jumped lanes and hit against my car. The worst part was, I was a minute away from my destination and my cell phone had switched off with no battery. I used the truck driver's phone to call 911 because he refused to do so. :-| Everything ended ok eventually.

8. I am allergic to avacado and pineapples. I don't know when I developed the allergy because I used to eat them perfectly fine in my childhood.

9. They made me the captain of the volleyball team in my college days simply because I was the most enthusiastic player in the team. I used to come for practice in the wee hours of the morning from my house which was about 15 km away. I would still be the first, when compared to the girls living in the hostel a few hundred meters away.

10. In high school I was actually aiming to become a doctor, but my scores didn't carry me through to it. In my childhood though I wanted to become a hair stylist.

11. I believe in some form of existence after death. Looking at the grand scale of the universe and our microscopic life on earth, there has to be some explanation to what the hell our existence is supposed to mean and that I am hoping will come to light after death.

12. Perhaps I could compete in a human mosquito trap competition. I am super good at just clapping them to death, which is very handy during the monsoon seasons in India. Didn't I mention before that I am multi-talented ;-)

13. Horror movies scare the wits out of me but I always pretend its no big deal to watch them.

14. Date of birth is supposed to be the last fact. Lets just say it involves three things --> Alphabets in English, Scorpion, George Orwell's famous book.
