Yaasotaa very kindly nominated me for a Mystery Blogger Award a while back. I was intending to reply to her nomination when I got another two nominations so I am combining all the three into one post. Thank you so much, Yaasotaa for thinking of me and awarding this honor to my blog. You can read about her nomination here.

I have decided to combine the three sets of questions in one post. Let’s make life easy!
1. Would you rather lose one of your limbs or lose your ability to speak? Why?
My question is why? I know it’s an avoidance to answer a question with a question but why do I need to lose either. I am deeply attached ( pun intended) to all my limbs and have a very profound connection with my ability to speak. So let’s not tempt fate by choosing one over the other!
2. What is one of your favorite books and why?
Hmmm, where should I start! There are so many favorites that I cannot pick a single one. I remember growing up on reading Alistair MacLean, Agatha Christie, Georgette Heyer, than discovering Robin Cook, John Grisham, Micheal Crichton and Jeffery Archer. So definitely hard to pick one Author. But one person I can read again and again is P G Woodhouse. Love his sense of humor.
3. What’s the worst crush you ever had on someone and how did it turn out?
Sadly I never had a crash on anyone.
4. What’s the scariest thing about you?
That I am a planner. It more irritating than scary. My kids are always telling me to take it easy and not to plan so far ahead but I am always planning six months in advance.
5. If you could do your dream job – assume you have the training and you will be hired – what would it be?
I wanted to be an engineer, but ended up in the Med school. So now if I think about my dream job, it would be getting paid for what I love doing, that is blogging. Sadly that is not happening, so I am happy blogging away anyway.
6. What would your worst nightmare job be?
To be in a job for which I am not qualified. I would also hate the idea of being tied to something I cannot do my best at.
Questions from Kristian, of Tales from the mind of Kristian
1. Name something you like to see in a book, that makes you want to read further.
A well planned storyline with minimal loopholes. I love to read thrillers, and mysteries. That would hook me into reading further.
2.What would make you want to stop reading a book?
Inane story, full of loopholes. Too much sap, as in unconnected romance which does not have a place in the story. When I know that the writer has run out of ideas and is just filling pages with drivel.
3.If they produced the story of your life, what genre would it be?
It would a comedy of errors!
4.If you could have a plane ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Only a ticket won’t suffice, I need an all expenses paid vacation to Switzerland.
5.What advice would you like to give to your ten-year-old self?
Hold strong, this will get easy with time.
Questions from Yaasotaa
1.what is the funniest things think that you have done?
My life has been full of comic errors. I tend to act before thinking and have done many unintentional bloopers in my life. I even wrote a post about one of them, If the world is laughing at you, join them.
2.who is your mentor? Why?
I admired my father and how he brought us all up. I consider him my mentor and try to act in life according to how he would have wanted me to. I think it is a way to honor his memory.
3.what is the bravest thing you have done?
When my elder brother bought a motorcycle, I volunteered to test ride it, without any training. That didn’t end well, but luckily no great injury or harm was done. Only my foolish pride suffered a little.
4.what characteristic that you admire from a friend?
I totally admire sincerity. I think the best friend you can get is the one who is sincere. A people pleaser or funny person would be a good friend but the best one would be the one who has your best interest at heart.
5.what is your horoscope. Have you ever get to know more about it?
I am a Sagittarius. I do have an interest in horoscopes to the extent that the people of the same star sign share many personality traits. Like, Sagittarians are clumsy people. They have a tendency to fall, break things and commit social blunders. But they are also independent, honest and out spoken people too.
Three (un-interesting) facts about me:
1. I have overcome my inborn personality traits by working hard on them.
2. I enjoy spending time by myself, I read, write or listen to music for hours at end if left to myself. I don’t watch TV anymore and love super hero movie.
3. I cannot tell lies with conviction. I usually blurt out the truth even when I don’t think it would be a wise thing to do.
