I'm 28th generation, in less than a month, of "Five things you don't
know about me" meme started by Jeff
on Dec 10, 2006. My hierarchy starts from Andi
(17, getting into Sun now), Ugo
(7), (tagged twice) Stowe
(6) and Jesse
Following the first link, Irwin
(5), The Phone Boy
thrice by Ken Camp
(3), and Luca
(3). Again following the first link Andy
(2) and finally the root Jeff
(2). Here are my five things:
- During Masters, Sun and Microsoft were my two dream companies. I've been
working at Sun for close to 8 yrs and work very closely with Microsoft to
enable Web services interoperability between Java and .NET 3.0 using Web
Services Interoperability Technology (WSIT).
- My first assignment after coming to United States was helping my brother
paint his house which is where we spent our next 3 best years of life.
- I'm afraid of dogs. I've had dogs chase me multiple times during training
runs which has made me change my course multiple times. Once I reached home
much earlier than the regular time I take for running and everybody at home
had a good laugh about the reason. It was of course, a dog chasing me and
then I didn't stop sprinting all the way to home.
- There are certain entrees that only I cook in the house. My family
(including my wife :) and friends like it exactly that way. I love cooking
and I realized I share this passion with Jonathan
- Me and my wife's birthday and our anniversary are all within 3 weeks
(coming really soon). We celebrate one event where we call all the friends
and other two are just with the family. A milestone event makes it an easier
choice but other years (like this year) it's fun crafting the algorithm to
identify the event to celebrate.
