August 16, 2009 § 24 Comments
Ya ya its raining awards! *hey anybody wants to erect a statue of me? *
This time its Kanagu , celebrating a year in blogosphere *ha young man congrats *.
Anyway , he has given me the Wordsworth of blogsphere award *see someone reads my poems 😀 * . Anyway how do I feel about it? Damn good you bet , but decided to ask Wordsworth what he thinks about this…
Me:- Dude , you are Wordsworth?
Wordsworth:- Once upon a time I prowled upon a fox,
She was so hot , that I forgot my life’s small faux pas.
In my dreams , I was a dove on her head,
In my beak I held a rose that was red.
Me:- That sounds like ,like… Wordsworthless , what happened to you?
Wordsworth:- I became a blogger on a dusty May day,
There changed my fate’s say.
This fellow called OG, A cook he was , showed me,
A lady in a white saree , A lovely damsel , A malayalee
Then another guide, took me in his stride,
In him insanity, Vimal made me see my vanity
And I laughed away my pensive,
For hiring a donkey was expensive.
me:- So that’s it , I should have warned you , but why didn’t you read my poetry?
Wordsworth:- The madman you are,
Your verses to my brain were a spar ,
Thoughts don’t rime and white is not sour,
Why ,you are still to get drunk at a bar.
Me:- Oh! shut up , have you had a chocobar? And its a mistake me coming here. I think I should have gone to Shelley or Hemingway or Frost or best of all Shakespeare.
Good day sir, Hope you find someone wiser than me.
The gray loons can never beat that well bred Shelley
Or keep taking different Paths daily.
I am but a man , who sees daffodils, For they are tiny,
In my heart , with their memory , everything seems free.
Me:- whatever , someone think I am like you. Anyway you lived far too long and you didn’t shoot yourself or get drowned..not inspiring at all, they say we poets are crazy..
At this point , the poor fellow mutters to himself and sees a couple of Chennai kaka(crow/raven) and wanders away …
Anyway anyone who says my poems are long , please , save it , for all you know , you would have to teach it your children if it becomes as a part of their English text 😉 * ya I dream of such things , The swine I am! Stay away from me , I am genetically self modified flu proof pig , coming near me is bound to weaken your system through jealousy , vanity and of course you hog , you stink!*
Oh! I thought I was giving away awards and look whats happening…anyway all those who receive this award , should write a ode to the river in your city 😀
The award goes too…
Oh! He also gave me the “They gonna rock” , this one is meant for the kids supposedly(he calls me a veteran in his post and calls me a kid while giving me the award , so I am the young veteran 😀 ) .
Yes yes I am going pass this one around as well 😀
There are few who behave like kids. They fight , they write weird comments in each others’ blog and they pull each others’ leg(virtual ones I guess 🙂 ).
And this is a new trend, in the olden days(of blogging!) , people used to behave themselves , we commented and talked as if we had a tie around our neck trying to choke us( Oh! I didn’t belong to this category I think, what with my famous smiley comments 😉 and before that of course I was the new kid in the block 😉 ) So this one goes to the kids(some old timers who have reinvented themselves as well) :-
–Vimmuuu(ya if you don’t write his name with the 2 M and 3 U ..he’s going come and spam you :P)
–Smita ( A chronically shopaholic, Vimmuuu’s nemesis.. :P)
–OG( yes strikku moonu! Strictly speaking , he is the only guy I know , who writes a cooky blog :P)
–Anamika( full of weird instances and ya she makes me laugh :D)
–Dhiren ( along with Vimmuuu and OG , they form Don’s Angles 😉 )
–Don( well she does pretend to be Badshah of Bloggywood)
–Harsh (jee boom bha!)
You people are to write a post on your favorite toy(Vimmuuu stop trying to steal Smita’s toy! Or no candy for you!). 😆 Or King Khan VS King Kong 😀 (the choice is your’s choose wisely 😉 )
And if you thought that’s it , stop right there! There is one more award to go:-
DI passed on the cool blogger award 😀 (ya! at last something which sounds good , feeling cool 😛 )
*the greenery in the picture -oh! come on that’s good photoshopping! *
So while the entire Earth is boiling in its own pudding , there are a few coolers , if not for whom , our spirits would have melted away..These wonderful people whose post show their good brains(clean without having to be washed by pepsi) are:-
–Arch ( she understands my poems!)
–Indyeah( well what can I say Incredible Indyeah 😀 )
–Archana( I hate blogs which talk about guy-girl relationship,who needs them – but her blog has made me change my views 😉 )
–Lakshmi(she roams and she does what roamers do 😉 )
I am stopping with four on this one ; And since this award is about being cool , you are to write on the Coolest dessert! 😀
So there done I think. I love doing these awards post 😉 Ha but wait almost forgot 😉
This is the most important part of the post, so listen *Indi helps Vishesh in pulling OG down from the ceiling fan(he thought it would help him make chutney)*
Chirag , has come up with Indiameme.
In his words ,
With Indiameme you can:-
* Glance at the Day’s News and Blogs and get Permalink to the current news
* Read stories only from the best sources and bookmark them in twitter, del.icio.us, facebook and reddit
* Read the news in a giffy as there are no ads or distractions and this is the probably the most cleanest site in India
* Grab best of the news with “Top Items – Must Read News”
I have tried it out and except for a few minor glitches(which he is working on) its awesome! You can read the NEWS from various sources(including a few blogs) in one place. And well some people prefer to see things , so here is a screen shot 🙂
P.S:- Winners , do take up the challenge to write on those topics 😛 The idea is to make these award posts so entertaining(after all it gets monotonous to see comments saying “congrats” “cool” etc 🙂 ) But its optional 😉
