I have been tagged :) - Whats in a name?

This is the first time I have been tagged and it definitly feels nice :) . I have been tagged by Joelen of "Joelen's Culinary Adventures" . The tagging requires me to post these rules. So here they are:

-- Players, you must list one fact, word or tidbit that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your first or middle name.

-- When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own first or middle name game facts, word or tidbit.

-- At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

-- So if I've tagged YOU, please join in on the fun!

So here is my name facts:

R - Restless mind : I always keep thinking something or the other,its rarely resting, though I wish I could let it. Its either thinking about cooking up new recipes, or about how to tactfully persuade my hubby dear to agree to buy a new kitchen gadget ;) Right now I am thinking how I can pursuade him to buy me a sandwhich maker....hope he is not reading this ;))

O - OverIndulgent: When I start cooking something and when it really pleases my palate or my husband's, I keep cooking it at a stretch that I dont put a full stop until I hear the words "My dear wife, dont you think we ate a lot of "Pathrodo" last two weeks??"

O - "Optimistic" - If I dont put "Optimistic" in quotes, I am sure to get some teasing comments from my better half. Yes honestly I am not so optimistic most of the times. But thats coz I dont like sad surprises, so I feel if I am expecting something, to be ending in a not-so-good way, I dont feel the hurt so much later. Its like I dont like that phrase in hindi "Zor ka jhatka dheere se laga" :) But yes when it comes to certain decisions in life, I choose to be optimistic. The fact is I chose to always also consider the "worst -case-scenario":) Guess i shud be called cautious instead, but i dont have a letter C in my name, so i chose to include it in O :)

P - Playing in water : These days, me and hubby were indulging in lots of water adventures like canoeing, whitewater rafting,... one of them was most unforgettable as we both fell in water while canoeing and I didnt know swimming!

A- Aromatic: I am instantly put in a good mood when I get the aroma of any dish I like. Its like a instant thing which puts me at ease. Its also the fragrance associated with anything like a soap bar, perfume, or even the detergent soap we use, makes me feel very good:) . I was so crazy about Pears soap when I was a kid, that I asked my mom, is there anything wrong in geting a bite of this soap? Since I obviously could not taste the soap, I kept collecting its soap cover and hiding it in my school textbooks so that each time I opened the book, I could get the fragrance of it :)

So thats my side of the story , I want to tag the following people to know their stories as well:)

Here goes: according to the rules, I understand I have to tag people whose names start with a letter in my name:

R - Renu of Adukkala

O - Once upon a Tart

O - Oishii

P - Priya's Kitchen

A - Asha of Aroma
