This Tag is from the Vinay & Think Tank

These are the
rules to follow-

1. Link the person who tagged you.
2. Mention the rules on your blog.
3. Tell 6 unspectacular quirks of yours.
4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them.
5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger's blogs, letting them know that they have been tagged.

So here goes…6 unspectacular quirks of Sid - The Tagged one…!

1. I always reformat my hard disk even if I see a tiny error in the running of my pc. Even if its not a virus! Weird? Not when you dual boot your pc with Linux! Oh! And yes, I am a linux freak. So only dare to start that topic with me if you are genuinely interested. I have been known to bore the skin off some supremely uninterested people with that subject. (And that is not hard since there are more than 650 Linux-based operating systems!)*

* And still counting!!

2. I am a data hoarder. I love to store data of any type and nature. Right now I have 20TB of data approximately.

3. I have given up watching Kannada movies, Once I saw mungaru male,(though I’ve probably watched only a couple of kannada movies before it. That “movie” totally messed with my brains. I was dragged in to the theatre to see that worthless piece of junk. No more movies in kannada for me, even if Mungaru feMale comes up! No Kidding!

4. I am probably the only person in the world who loves animals so very much but have never had a pet of my own. Mom just won’t let me; she says getting attached to them will only bring more pain if & when something happens to them.

5. When it comes to Organising, I am obsessive compulsive…. I tend to categorise pretty much everything that I lay my eyes on. This would be obvious to you, if you see my pc. Everything is categorized into Entertainment, Gaming, Workstuff, Audio, Video, and Useless-but-still-taking-up-space. Each one is then organized into sub categories. For example in videos partition (Yes, I do keep a separate partition for everything! So Sue me!), I have categories like : English-Hollywood, English-album, English-miscellany, hindi-album, hindi-bollywood…… You get my drift!

6. I have not visited a movie theatre for a very long time. See my previous post to know which movie I last saw! Some people (and rightly so, says my mind) Have even advised me to “Get a life!!” . (Sigh!)
And Now the hard part. It seems so hard to tag when so many people have already been tagged before!

So in the list below, If someone has already done this one, Please send me a link to that post.
