While I was on a break…..
It’s been more than a month since I made my return to the blog world, but I donno why, I totally feel like an outsider now. It’s like watching your favourite TV serial after missing a few episodes; I find it difficult to link stuffs especially when you all have discussions in the comments section 😀
One reason could be because, though I said I am back, I really am not ! I mean, I hardly find time these days to be online and its been ages since I had a chat with anybody on gtalk!!! Work is really affecting my schedules and when I get back home, I find time only to read all your blogs and comment. Getting into a discussion in the blogs then is simply out of the question because of the number of blogs I have got to read. I don’t even get back to the blogs to check if my comments are replied or not. But then, I need to make my presence felt, right? which, btw, is made simple only on Wednesdays and Thursdays, if you know what I mean 😛
During my break, a birdie from the US called me up and told me that in the blogworld there is a Chotu-Moti love story in the making. To be honest, I took it as joke and didn’t believe what the birdie said, but after I came back, I realized that the birdie wasn’t lying after all. Something IS going on between Chotu and Moti. And guess what, that birdie is nowhere to be seen now. Hmm…. I smell a ‘bratspiracy’ !!
The most amusing thing that happened during my absence should be this post about me by Rakesh Vanamali. Guys, he actually wrote good stuffs about me, can you believe it? Yeah, I couldn’t believe it either; never thought my name could ever get associated with the kind of adjectives he had used in the post! 😀 😀 😀 😀 Thanks Rakesh, that post really meant a lot to me and I still have no words to express how happy I was when I read it the first time. I didn’t react to your post only because I didn’t want to end my gratitude with just a comment in your blog. It was a pleasure meeting you too, Rakesh and I am not kidding, after you left, I had that lump in the throat feeling which normally people mention in similar situations 😛 😛 Ok ok, I know, I am not good at it! So, people, if at all you wanna write something about me someday, you know where to go and which post to use as a benchmark 😀 😀 😀
But just after that kind gesture from Rakesh Vanamali, I got another whole post written only on me. It was from my house owner and through her post, she managed to expose that side of mine which none of you had seen so far. I didn’t react to that as well and I patiently waited for my turn! Buhahahahahahaha!!!
I even got a special appearance in one of Sags post; an appearance which I am not really proud of. Why? Because, they (it was a joint post!) defamed me and my character. I should’ve created a ruckus like how Bappi Lahiri created recently just before the release of Toonpur ka Superhero!! But by the time I came back, it was too late; the damage was done! I really don’t know for what joy they included me in that post. They should’ve atleast asked my permission before dragging me into it. But then, nobody asks a chicken if it wants to be grilled or barbequed, right? 😀 😀 😀
What surprised me during my break was this post of Smita which everybody loved. I mean, when I write anything on toilets, you all go ewwwwww and on that post of hers about poo and pee, you all went awwwwww-ing !! Some of them even mentioned in the comments that it is cute and sweet!! Be it baby potty or some guy’s in the French toilet, potty is a potty is a potty is a potty!!! Hmmpphhhh !!! and when it is a toilet post, she should’ve rightfully dedicated it to me like how Crafty did. And again, nobody had a problem with Craftys post either. Hypocrites, that’s what you all are !!! Hmmpphhhh again!!
Speaking of Crafty, she is one of the sweetest ‘living being’ I have ever come across. Days before going on a break, Crafty got in touch with me to get my address to send me something; it was a surprise, it seems. Since I was moving out of Chennai, I gave her the address of my native place. A few days later (i.e. during my break), while I was away from home at a relative’s place, my mom called me up and told me that I have a courier. I knew it was from Crafty since I wasn’t expecting a courier from anybody else. I rushed back home to open it and guess what I found — the first edition of Spiderman Comics !!!! yeah, and also a CD of Spiderman Vs Dr. Octopus !!! My joy knew no bounds when I saw them. I wasn’t celebrating any special days for her to send a surprise gift, yet she remembered that I am a die-hard fan of Spiderman and took the pains of buying and sending them as soon as she spotted them at some book fair (am I right crafty?). and that wasn’t the first time she surprised me with her gifts. She even sent me a lot of goodies (including two bubble blowers), soon after my wedding. Now, that’s what I call ‘being thoughtful’ and I know that she had been this thoughtful to some of you too! Thanks Crafty kutty, you are the best and sometimes, I feel that I don’t deserve all this from ya!
Anyway, thanks to all of you for keeping me alive in the blogworld even in my absence. I am also taking this opportunity to thank everybody who got in touch with me through calls, sms’ and mails asking me on my come back. It does feel great guys, when you get to know that you are missed 😀 😀 😀
Ok, I am done. This is what happened while I was on a break. Do you guys have anything else to share?
