Now you know my ABC’s…

by Khushboo on March 9, 2012

Other than customer feedback forms, I love filling in surveys.  Don’t tell me you don’t remember the good ol’ days of AOL where the ‘cool’ thing was to forward it to your entire buddy list.  As you guys know plenty about what I eat and about the workouts I do, I thought I’d mix it up and give you some ABCs about me.  In other words, here’s some facts about me which you’ll probably never need to know…and hopefully you aren’t Zzz’ing by the time you reach “Z” ;)!

A. Age: 23

B. Bed size: Slightly larger than twin-sized

C. Chore you dislike: Ironing and changing the sheets on my bed.

D. Drinks: Water, iced coffee, green tea, vodka/soda/lime

E. Essential start to your day:  A trip to the bathroom, brushing my teeth and a glass of water

F. Favorite TV show:  FRIENDS, Sex & The City, Modern Family

G. Glass half empty or half full?: 100% full = 50% water + 50% air

H. Height:  5 foot, 3.5 inches

I. Instruments you play(ed):  My instrumental skills extend to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on the piano

J. Jeans:  J is for Jeans, J is for J Brand

Beyonce is clearly a fan of J Brand too :)...J is also for Jay-Z & Beyonce (my fave celeb couple)

K. Kids: None for now but I’d like to have 3: a boy and 2 girls

L. Live:  Mumbai, baby!

M. Mom’s name:  Hansa

N. Nicknames:  Kboo, Khush, KT, Cuddles, Khushy Boo Boo

O. Overnight hospital stays:  Thrice: malaria, car accident, and an eye infection

P. Pet peeves:  This deserves a whole post of its own but some of which  are put-on British accents, dried toothpaste on the sink, loud chewers, slow walkers, and poor spelling.

Q. Quote:Be who you are & say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind” – Dr. Seuss

R. Restaurant favorite:  I’ll always have a soft spot for Indigo Deli

S. Siblings:  Brother (Anand – 28) & Sister (Shyamla – 27)

T. Time you wake up:  My alarm goes off at 7.30, I snooze till 7.50.

U. Underwear:  Uh what about it?

V. Vegetables you don’t like:  I just can’t get around the bitter taste of radish- eew!

W. What makes you run late:  I pride myself on my punctuality but on the rare occasion I am late, traffic is likely to be the case!

X. X-rays you’ve had:  Full body after my car accident and at the denist.

Y. Yummy food you make:  Check out my recipes but I’ve been told my oatmeal waffles are delicious!

Z. Zoo animal favorites: I am going to say lion because when I was in pre-school, the class was divided into 2 groups: Lions or Tigers…I was a Lion!

…won’t you come and sing with me? Choose a letter, any letter, and give me some answers!

I love that Dr. Seuss quote! And a bathroom trip starts my day off too–it’s like a waterfall in my bladder all night haha!! 😉


Parita @ myinnershakti March 9, 2012 at 8:34 pm

P is for Parita so I’ll do that one (and I’ll keep it to a minimum)!: My pet peeves are rudeness for no reason, slow walkers and talkers, people who don’t clean up after themselves, smelly breath -> just to name a few! 🙂 Hope you’re having fun in Dubai!!!


Khushboo Thadani March 10, 2012 at 10:30 am

Slow talkers might actually be worse than slow walkers actually… Get on with it already!!!


kilax March 9, 2012 at 10:12 pm

Chore I dislike – mopping and cleaning off the kitchen stove!

Also, dried toothpaste on the sink makes me nuts! My hair all over does too. I really need to clean my sink right now…


Khushboo Thadani March 10, 2012 at 10:31 am

If it’s not my air, it irks me too!


onehealthymunchkin March 9, 2012 at 10:12 pm

I love Friends and Sex & the City too! My roommate actually just got the entire series of Sex & the City on dvd, so we’re been watching an episode or two every night! 😀

I’m in a ranty mood so I’m gonna pick P for pet peeves. 😛 Mine are: people who talk in fake voices to me, people who hog the mat space at the gym, people who don’t make time in their schedule to meet for group projects, and people who blatantly copy me.


Khushboo Thadani March 10, 2012 at 10:32 am

Rant way :)! Gym hoggers in all areas of the gym suck- selfish much?


Brittany March 9, 2012 at 11:05 pm

Put on British accents..bahahaha. This cracked me up. I used to dislike radishes too, but I found that when I roasted them with a bit of salt they weren’t too bad! The oven is a magical tool.

Pet Peeves- Untamed children, loud music in cars (the kind where people are dying for attention) rude people, unbrushed teeth, clothes that don’t fit, and pants that bunch over boots.


Khushboo Thadani March 10, 2012 at 10:34 am

Oh I should try roasting them- the oven really does work wonders, especially with veggies!


forgottenbeast March 9, 2012 at 11:28 pm

I can’t wait to downsize to a twin bed, haha. I may be an adult, but my double is just SO uncomfortable, and much bigger than I need.


Khushboo Thadani March 10, 2012 at 10:35 am

Let’s swap? If my room was even slightly bigger, I would switch to a double ASAP!


forgottenbeast March 10, 2012 at 4:13 pm

Haha, I’d totally trade! Although I think if I just had a better mattress I wouldn’t be so unhappy with my double. That’s what I get for being cheap…


honeywhatscooking March 10, 2012 at 1:14 am

Khushboo Thadani March 10, 2012 at 10:36 am

Hahah my friend calls me that- I’ve given up on trying to get her to choose another nickname!


lovetotrain March 10, 2012 at 1:49 am

i also hate changing my sheets!!!!


Krystal March 10, 2012 at 1:51 am

Cooking…I love cooking, I don’t have to think too much. Dislike washing Dishes…I put them off until the sink is full lol. BTW I am drooling over the waffles!! Yumm


Khushboo Thadani March 10, 2012 at 10:37 am

Agreed- cooking is fun only when washing up isn’t required!


Errign March 10, 2012 at 4:52 am

I looooove surveys! I’ve done this one before 🙂


Tessa at Amazing Assett March 10, 2012 at 5:33 am

Such a great quote you chose… i could not agree more! My height is 5’11” and I have two older brothers 🙂


turtlespdrunner March 10, 2012 at 6:56 am

I can’t stop looking at the “shcool” LOL…drives me mad too!
And wow malaria!! That’s hardcore!


natashaboruszok1992 March 10, 2012 at 7:02 pm

Girl I can’t believe that you have had malaria….you are a trooper!!
I don’t mind putting my laundry in the washer/dryer, but I HATE having to fold them and put them away!!


Khushboo Thadani March 10, 2012 at 10:21 pm

How could I forget about folding and putting away laundry- yuck!


Tracy's Treats March 10, 2012 at 8:56 pm

LOVE this! We have the EXACT same taste in TV shows, girl!


Healthiful Balance March 11, 2012 at 12:35 pm

Loved this! It’s a great idea for a blog post! 🙂
Thats such an awesome quote! And those oatmeal waffles sound awesome, I want to try them for breakfast this morning! 😀


Khushboo Thadani March 13, 2012 at 10:45 am

I haven’t made them in a while but think they will be making a comeback this week. 🙂


Ameena March 11, 2012 at 8:41 pm

I actually love radishes…just not the aftertaste!

You were in the hospital for an eye infection? That sounds serious!!


Khushboo Thadani March 13, 2012 at 10:46 am

Yep because of a torn contact lens…wasn’t pretty!


Alyse March 12, 2012 at 11:22 am

Modern Family is the best! And changing sheets is a total drag. But I think my least favorite chore has to be cleaning the bathroom. There’s just nothing fun about that!


Khushboo Thadani March 13, 2012 at 10:47 am

Especially when you’re not the only one using the bathroom!


jojo March 12, 2012 at 11:28 am

Modern Family is the only TV show that my husband and I watch together 🙂
We always have a great time, such a funny show!
Kushy Boo Boo? How cute..


Khushboo Thadani March 13, 2012 at 10:48 am

I’m yet to come across anyone who isn’t a fan of the show!


Meg (A Dash of Meg) March 13, 2012 at 7:40 am



Meg (A Dash of Meg) March 13, 2012 at 7:40 am

your waffles really are amazing 😀


Nada March 16, 2012 at 12:00 am

Love this! I’m going to rip off Parita and say N is for Nada so I’ll do nicknames: Nad, Nads, Nadooya, Nadooshkinz, Nadoosha, dudu, and of course every Egyptian relative’s favourite: nunu (which can also mean baby/little one 🙂 )


Khushboo Thadani March 16, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Such cute nicknames, especially love Nadooya :)!
