Crammed in One Post: Second Part

ANNOUNCEMENT: Oye, even whoever cannot bear to come over here (MM), Please Do even if it is for only and only this post. You may not regret it. And you have some things to collect whether you like it or not. Others, do I have to invite you?

Bring your snack…
I have this cartload of awards to give away. No, I am not that awesome a writer that I got them all together but I do have the grave responsibility of passing them on, but (as many of you already know) I am a bit too lazy. So, the awards have been collecting on my rack (I clean my rack everyday though), and now I have to pass them on. The beauty of it is I also get to keep it. So, umm, lemme count… TEN awards?!! Man, I must be doing something good, somewhere.

I will be giving out five today and let the next opportunity to give out the next five. Simply because, too much of a good thing gives you…err… indigestion?
The first one comes from Shruti and Sid, separately.
Psych Babbler
Tharangni(the youngest blogger I know)

This one comes from a very sweet and simple girl (no one would believe otherwise) pra. Thank you so much! 🙂 
This awards comes with the rules: 

“Honest Scrap” Award, is given by bloggers to other bloggers who express themselves and write/blog from their heart and soul.

List 10 honest things about yourself — and make them interesting, even if you have to dig deep! Pass the award on to 7 bloggers who you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap and whose blogs you find brilliant in design and content.

So, I am so honoured that pra, one of the most honest and heartfelt bloggers I know thought of me as an embodiment of those virtues. I guess, since I do call myself ‘Misfit’, I can’t get more honest than that.
So, to list my 10 (T E N !!!) honest things about myself! And since I already have got the award, I can lie now right? Err… No? Okay, I’m scratching my grey cells… 

  1. I have a problem in believing that I am actually brilliant, I keep telling people that, I’m just barely above average.
  2. I love showing the thumb to people, literally and figuratively, and in most cases, only when they deserve it. Otherwise when they are irritating (do not ask what it means).
  3. I hate empty words (not the words meaning ’empty’) no matter who they come from, worthless and undeserving accolades.
  4. Sarcasm helps me to keep people at an arm’s length. Though, sometimes I just like the feel of it. After all, it is the language I speak best 😉
  5. I want to learn how to ride a bike very badly. By hook or by crook.
  6. I am an idealist which doesn’t mean that I am not practical, or a realist but that I always aim for the stars, and believe in the best of people.
  7. One of the most difficult questions that can be put to me is “What is your favourite colour?”… I love colours, including black (lack of all colours) and white (mixture of all colours) and everything in between, asking me to choose one is akin to torture.
  8. Family will always be more important to me than career. Career I can manage any time (remember, I am brilliant) but building a happy family is something that only a woman can do. For me it’s not a case of ‘either-or’ but of priorities.
  9. I am rarely satisfied.
  10. And whatever my nosey relatives say (me being the eldest daughter in the family and all) every time they see me in a saree (while in jeans it’s another story, the usual question then is, “which standard are you in?”), I am NOT getting married before (at least) 28. *i am actually sticking out my tongue
So there, did 10 really honest things, in the ultimate maverick-ly misfit style! 

Now to do the honours… these are literally the most honest bloggers I know. (some obvious ones have been left out because they already have been honoured) 
This was given to me by Sammy, this is her own award. Doubled by Sid, again! Thanks, guys!:)
This one, I am passing on to all those bloggers I have come across who are honestly few of the better writers around, poetry or stories or 55F, they entrall with each and every piece they spin!
Aditya (a profound writer, and an honest reader) 
Avada Kedavra (a thoughtful and talented writer)
Amit (the most mesmerising writes ever)
Frozenwell (a poet of deep thoughts, though is really a pranskter)
Harsha (captures the ordinary and changes to extraordinary)
Hopeless Romantic (who has stopped writing, but still…)
Indian Pundit (you’ll be made to think by this intelligent writer)
Kay (her poetry talks of every hidden emotion)
Neha (insightful and gifted, look out for the thrills)
Maverick (words that spill over feelings, never told before)
Pawan (a feel good writer, churns magic)
Pramoda (of values and thoughts, vibrantly profound)
Rahul (an observer, and an engaging one at that)
Rocksea & Sarah (creates magic out of the most inane, enthralls)
Shilpa Garg (food for thought, and re-evaluate)
Shilpa Sharma (she’ll have you hooked, nice and proper)
Shruti (Queen of 55F, brave and true heart)
Stephen (makes writing an art, gregarious)
Suga (thoughts and words to stay with you long after)
Vipul (the master at writing and making others write)
Yellow Tulip (poetry that you read with bated breath)

This comes from a very dear girl, Rohini.

This is “A Good Blog” award that I am passing on as a “Great” blog award to all those blogs that I regularly click-through the most. The contents are always much awaited, and when they are infrequent, the Misfit behaves like an addict, low on dope… Here goes… (I am choosing twenty only)
Indian Pundit
And this one comes from the renouncer of blog awards, Sourav 😉
I am passing this on to all of them that I enjoy visiting all the time. Few of my favourite blogger individuals, brought together by our common hobby, set apart by their own unique styles. I do love your blogs! My recent addi(c)tions!

P.S. For several of you I am definitely not the first, nor the last, to recognise your worth as a blogger, so kindly don’t yawn when you see that you have been given an award you already have, but accept it as a tribute to your AWESOMENESS from this poor Misfit girl… 😛

Again, several of us, unlike several others, will be oh-so-bored at another awards post, and only blink a half more on seeing your name. you are most welcome to neither display, nor accept, nor even acknowledge the award. No obligations. 😉

Have I linked to all of your blogs? If not, could you please leave your links at the comments section for better visibility? And please, please, please forgive my laziness 😛
I think I may have linked everyone at least once…

Hopefully I have not left any one out. I have a tendency to be forgetful, as is the case with most genius. If you are deserving and I have missed you (meaning I know you and then missed you) drop a word. (As if people wait all their lives for recognition from me…)

I do not know how to reciprocate your kind gesture, i have no such awards to give away, all i have are words of praise for you.
