Hey people ! Guess who’s back!?
The terrorists? No way!
No, no, not Christmas either!
C’mon! I’m referring to myself here! Gosh! Obviously, am the only one who’s glad! 😀
After a break that seemed almost eternal, I’m back in AlphabetWorld! The machines (read as my brain) here were apparently getting used to doing nothing. So a lil’ tap at the right side and a harder tap later, it’s started creaking a bit. The print might not be too fine the first few days, but I hope I’ll be pardoned.
I did a rough count of the number of posts I’ve not read since I went on the break — and I’m still reeling under the impact! If I start reading them, one after the other, I might — just might — complete it before they light the candles on my 78th b’day 😀 . I think it’ll be safest for my eyes if I pretend to have read them all — or rather that I’d never been on a break! (Ok, guys…I’m kidding! I’m craving to read ’em all — but can’t at one go…I’ll take the tortoise’s path and read them at at a slow pace.)
My last post was on Nov 1…and when I popped into Vimal‘s blog to count his new posts, I noticed my name, my latest post’s name and the words “5 weeks ago” in his blogroll. Now you know what drove me in here so soon 😀 .
5 weeks! I was aghast…enraged at myself!
I quickly signed in to undo the damage — and oh my god! WordPress has changed! For a moment, I thought I’d signed into some other site! And then The Greatest Guide-Writer Of All Times tells me it’s the new Crazyhorse look! And yea, it rocks!
I saw that I’d been bestowed with the following awards:
Butterfly Award by both Verbivore and Vimal;
A Trophy by Vimal;
Este Blog investe e acredita na – Proximidade! by Vimal
Thanks a lot, you guys! (If I were dumb, I’d think it was for staying away from the blog world 😉 )
I pass these honours on to (following the rules of the Proximidade one!) 8 others:
Verbivore, Rekha, Apar, Manu, Reema, Sakhi, Xylene and Jayya.
Apar apparently tagged me sometime back with a photo tag; am so grateful to her (for giving me something for my ‘next post’).
I was also tagged to do the quirky tag by Verbivore, but I noticed that at the end of doing his own, Nikhil had killed the tag! I hope it’s come back to life — because I quite like that tag! 😀
Verbivore also tagged me to do the Movie Quirks tag, but after writing the first part of this sentence, I noticed that she hasn’t. So ooops…sorry!
I also got to know that Vimal‘s not single anymore 😀 (Vimal, I tried; but the cat scratched me and jumped out of the bag) 😀
I noticed that the Avante Garde Awards haven’t been announced yet. I’m extremely thankful to everyone who nominated me — I’m honoured to have made into the list! May the best blogger win!
Soon after posting this, I intent to visit every blog that’s on my roll and leave a “hi” — just so that everyone knows I’m back 😀 (To comment would mean reading the posts — which’ll let me tell others that I’m back only when I’m 78!!
Last but of course, not the least, I’m pleased to announce the appointment of Nikhil as my Santa Claus for Year 2008! 😀 Anyone else who wishes to be the same are welcome to do so — I’d only be extra glad! 😉
Folks, am dying for news as to what’s been happening in the blogville while I took that untimely break. So, tell me…what’s been happening!?
Well well well… Lookie who’s here. 😀
Welcome back madamoiselle. And [a ‘slightly’] belated congratulations. Trust everything went off very well on D-Day.
And I ain’t sparing you… 78th birthday or no 78th birthday. 😛 I give you the next 78 hrs to get done with reading 😉 (at least mine :P) *gosh! I am so generous! 😀 )
Good to have you back in bloggersville.

Thank you about the scoop about dear Vimmuuu 🙂
Howz married life going… welcome back 🙂

Grrrrrrrrr….I award you, I sing for you on your wedding day, and most importantly, I dont tag you and this is what I get ??????
😛 Talk of lame excuses… 😀
Anyway, I had no idea about your stance towards poetry. 😦 Anyway, I did write some prose too. 😛 Am not a bard to constantly churn out one poem-after-another. 😉
Heh heh heh, not to worry – Suraj will teach you to count well beyond 77. 😉 😀
Glad you popped in pronto! 🙂
Peace. Have a nice day.
PS: I dunno if this is news; but your friend verbivore took the liberty to assume that I am Filipino! 😀 Reason? It seems her Filipino acquaintances also sign off with “Peace”. 😉
🙂 thanks Priya..details to follow .. and I assure you no one is gonna beat you to death 🙂 🙂 lol.. take care
Thanks a lot! 🙂
That tag is my next post!

The Vimmuuu Scoop, i think, will be my biggest blunder in life! Hehe…he’s quite sore…and I’m loving it 😉
Welcome to AlphabetWorld! 🙂

Yu sang on my wedding day!? Damn! I knew that sound system wasnt working….I didn’t hear yu da! If I had, yu think I’d have let the cat out? 😛

Thanks! I will! 🙂
Everything went well. Thanks…and you deserve them!
Thank youuuuuuu !
Ummmm….I’d prefer the brick therapy 😀 So, when do we meet?
The wedding was a fantastic bash alright. I thought you forgot the greeting card part (because I forgot…remembered only now, while i checked my previous post to find Vimal’s song….was soooo touched by it, that I forgave you also in the process 😀 )
And yeah…3rd pending tag, this will be! Thanks 😀
No jokes, no kidding!
I’m so touched! Of all the songs in the world, for you having chosen that! I am soooo touched. Thank you! Thank you! Thaaaaaank Yooooooooouuuuuu!!!!!!

I am enjoying you have let the cat out of the bag…bugged Vimmuuu 😀 I hope he will spare me for A’s sake 😉 Do mail the pics…:)
