Hiya Everybody..

The new thing is that I have joined a company and I am undergoing training. I love being busy and having a hectic 6 days of a week. So I deem myself lucky to be in a busy and hectic training program. So I'll be around but not as much as I used to. I have not commented on so many many posts and not read oh so many posts of the blogs I follow. I miss doing that so I hope you are all missing me too people. (Has anyone really noticed?? :( ).

Right now I am down with a fever. I seem to be the mother ship of all those fever causing viruses. They feel they are honor bound to come and rest in me every month or so. Grrrr....

So, anyways I have got so many things to do now. Packing, moving to a paying guest. Preparing for tomorrow's training. :) :). Adios amigos.. :) :) I will be back.. Soon I hope.. :) :)
Take care ya all.. :) :)

Driving a Bus.

You think the post will be interesting because of the title? hmmmm.. I find that interesting.
I love misleading people for fun. I can be the worst nigthmare of a person who is lost in a big city and is not worried much about it (I am human, I wont mislead if they are worried. Swear.. ;))  I wanted to name all the pages with a title totally unrelated to the content but my friend pointed out that people might think I have gone bonkers and never visit my blog. I am thinking about doing a whole post of my misleading adventures. So the post here is not true. Something crazy from a person who is trying to stay sane in this compititive, cut-throat world. (Or is it? ;))
Well read on and find out.. :D
So I was telling Sonam the other day that she should go ahead with Punit and take their relationship to next level. Sonam.. You know, Sonam Kapoor and Punit Malhotra. So, I was telling her that they both make such a good pair. Both so cute and all. :) :)

It is with great happiness that I am announcing that I was able to cut short the engineering course to 1 year and 6 months course. Vaise tho kuch padathe nahi. You can sum up the whole 4 years course in a 1 year and 6 months. Happy engineering to all.

For the 20th time I said no to Simi Garewal for an interview. I just don't think that many sane people are watching "Simi Garewal's India's Most Desirable" these days. I just hope she does not ask me again. I just hate to say no to her.

Was honored to accept the position of judge in "Veg only specials" in MasterChef India. It is being held here in coorg so that I can be a judge. Can you believe it?

They are asking me to co-host the next Oscar awards. It is because Eddie Murphy told that he will only if I will be his co-host. He is so good at flattery. I think I will go for this one. If only I had said yes to Hugh Jackman when he was hosting but you see I was busy with working on the novel  "How I went crazy on my blog and got away with it".
On a completely sane note. I was going to start on my first job on 7th of November or so I thought. They are going to put off the joining date. So I am in Banglore with a lot of time to come up with my take on Banglore like so many people before.

Do I really have to?

I have a pile of things to do.
Done and put it behind me, I had to.
But then I think "Do I have to?"

I have somethings at which I have to improve.
Which does not sound like a walk in the park as it has to.
I have to do these as it deems that I have to.
But then I feel "Do I really have to?"

I do my stuff and leave at 2.
They say I have to put in more effort and to see to it that I do.
But then I wonder "Do I have to?"

It stinks to be in a position with nothing to do.
With only stupid questions haunting you.
Answers for which you have to search and you may get lost too.
But then I think "Do I have to?"

I wake up in the middle of the night after dreaming about you.
And I just want to sit and the dream I want to go through.
But my brain goes back to sleep as its used to.
But I feel "Do I have to?"

I got stabbed in the back with witnesses 2.
Walk away they say because they had to.
But I wonder "Do I have to?"

I want to throw paper weights at you.
I have a hard time restraining myself not to.
But then I think, I feel and wonder "Do I have to?"

P.S: Originally thought of it as a post. Sounded more poemey. Its kinda lame. What do you think?
P.P.S: Do you know there is a book on "how to write a 'how to write a book' book"..?? Cool eh..??

Vegetable soup of a worried soul..

I love coming up with titles for my post. For every incident which happens around me and my head is coming up with a title and a few lines. The problem being few lines. After the previous long post I don't want to write very short posts. So here I'm just putting it all together.
(BTW, L.L means lesson learn t. :))

The Soup Tragedy:
It amazes me That I can mess up on something as simple as preparing soup (those ready mix types you get). I added water, mixed it properly and put it on the stove. Went and watched TV for awhile. Went back and saw this thick batter at the bottom of the vessel.

L.L: "A little more water and 5 mins without TV won't kill you." (but it can make you go hungry for 10 more mins as you are trying to fix it. With nothing else to do I think its just lesson learnt and time well spent)

Blog Header Mania:
I am churning out blog headers by the lot. But I wont change soon. I have promised myself that I will keep a header for at least a year. So, I am good for 6 years. :)
L.L: "Nothing to do can make you pretty creative."

Red eyes:
I am reading a lot of e-books. Got 2 red blotches for eyes. So took a day off. Now, seeing that my eyes are back to normal I am restraining myself from spending every waking moment reading e-books.
L.L: "Do this one more time and your laptop just might get abducted by your parents."

Finding faults:
I was breaking my head over something that happened eons ago and as usual I had not realized at that time that it was something offending. I was getting all worked up when I got a message on my cell. It said
"Always be a baby, because the baby does not know about its past as well as its future. But it enjoys every second of its life..!"

FYI, a baby does not have a past, I bet it does not even know what future means. Put the baby through a engineering college in a god forsaken place like sullia and it will have a very filthy past and a hopeless future.

L.L: "Never, never take it out on a sweet and cute baby."

Well that's it for now. Please do check out my page here and say what you think. The nothing to do has made the creative me spring out from the depths of my empty heart.

P.S: Hooked on to the song "Chamak Challo" from Ra.One. Is it great or is it great.? :)

Another award and another tag..

This took so long because I was finding it hard to come up with 7 facts about myself. I was surprised myself. Well I still managed.
So here I go ranting about myself again.

1) I love F.R.I.E.N.D.S and according to me its the bestest show ever made.

2) If I don't get a word to express what I am feeling I make one up. Like the words here and there are many which just come and go but I dont remember them later.

3) I have a very long to-read list of books which I wish to read and thanks to people who give great reviews its getting longer. I wish they would give the book too. ;)

4.) I can write poems only when I am happy. So if u see a poem even a sad one that means I am happy about something.

5) I just tore up the whole computer cleaned everything and put it back together. :)

6) My favorite song of all time is Suddenly I See by KT Tunstall.

7) I had upma for breakfast today. ( I ran out of facts about myself )

So this is the award I got

Thanks a lot to Prathi.. :)

I would like to pass this award on to quiet a few people:
1) Valli of Poetry- Reflection of my feelings.
2) Purple Mist of Wanderlust.
3) Anne John of Abstract Admissions and
4) Saru of Words who have already received the award but still deserve it again for their lovely blogs.
5) Chintan Gupta of The Blunt Blog
6) Red Handed of Red Handed

Now comes the interesting part. I'm changing the tag, supposing that I'm allowed to do that. So instead of writing 7 facts about yourself I want you to answer 7 questions of mine.

1) Which is your favorite "Lays" flavor? (Yes its the Frito Lays chips I am asking about)
2) Which is the one place you would love to go but have not been there as yet?
3) Which is the one color you hate?
4) Given an option to rescue a wooden log or a wooden plank which one would you rescue?
5) Why did you rescue whichever you rescued?
6) Dogs or cats?
7) Which is the one gadget which you would like to own which you don't already have?

So you are tagged. You can either write 7 facts about yourself or answer the 7 questions or do both or not do both.
Whatever you do, do accept the award because you deserve it.. :) :) :)

I wish I had not lost a few friends,
In a silly twist of fate.

I wish I had made a few amends,
Which I know was all it would take.

I wish I knew wrong from right.
I wish I realized sooner which I realized the next night.

I don't want to accept my stupid decisions and blame it on fate,
Because I just want to live and say that I don't regret.

P.S: I have received an award from prathi and also a tag.. will be doing it soon.. :)

A tag and an award...

Just when I was thinking life was getting depressing someone like Anne John comes along and brightens it up...

You ask how..??

Well she gives me an award and says a few nice things and makes my day.. :)

And she has tagged me as well..

Its to write 7 facts about me.. That should have been easy for a girl like me who speaks only about herself right..? Guess what it was easy.. :P

Well here goes..

1.) I love watching cooking shows. Its one of my favorite pass times. I am not a very good cook but recently I cooked something which turned out pretty good. It was not burnt or under cooked or over cooked. Its Channa Masala. But I forgot to add the main masala but its a great achievement for me as I did not burn it or over cooked or under cooked it.
Here is a picture:

Thank u, thank u.. :)
the chappatis are a courtesy of my dear mom..:)

2.) I love speaking to myself in my mind. Like when I was taking this picture I was saying "Liven up channas, you are going to be photographed and put in a blog. Just give a very tasty look."

3.) I love chocolates. I am a chocoholic.

4.) I love to make up quotes.

"Every time you put me down I rise up a little stronger then before"

"Sometimes all it takes to smile is a little bit of hope"

These are my all time favorites.

5.) I love Harry Potter. I am reading them for a 3rd time now. :)

6.) I am a big farmville addict. Its gotten more serious now as I am jobless in my home.

7.) Every new year I write a post on my new year resolutions but never post it. Weird huh..?? So there are like three posts titled new year resolutions in my drafts. :(.. I am never satisfied when I read it after writing the whole thing.

Well these are the 7 facts about me. You people thank God that its only 7. If not you could have seen me going on and on about myself..

So where is that award..??

Ah.!! here it is.. :)

Hmmmm... :) :)
*Gives a satisfied smile and hugs the award virtually*

So I am giving this award to 2 people:

My dear friend Pratap Upadhya of BROCA's area who had stopped blogging but has returned. I hope this will get you started again. :)

Thousif Raza of Soul Space.

Okay people, you are awarded and tagged.. :)

P.S: Thanks a lot Anne.. :)

As I write I am waiting for farmville to load in facebook. Some mornings it has this weird way of getting stuck. I get so frustrated whenever this happens.
This got me thinking about the other things which make me want to pull my hair out.

1.) They-Us: I get really frustrated when my friend, trying to be funny and say something like "WOW! Look at them, they seem to be so well dressed and look at us, we look like fools with these stupid dresses."
This if said when I am wearing my favorite dress and a million dollar smile which slowly slips down as I bend and look at my dress and think "Is it so bad? I do agree that you look like a fool but me too.? No ways". I mean, Why do you include me? Insult yourself if you want to.

2.) Being Effing Miss.Sunshine and goody little two shoes when actually, in person they are not.

3.) When I don't get the window seat in the bus. I love to sit there by myself, looking out of the window, sipping sprite and burping occasionally while listening to my favorite songs.

4.) When situation around me make me go all "Where are you god? and what have you done with my guardian angel?"

5.) People speaking senseless just to win an argument or bringing in their mom or dad just to save their face. Here is an example:

Me: You should never skip breakfast and should have lots to eat because it is the most important meal of the day.
Frnd: I feel that breakfast should always be light but you should have a very heavy lunch and its okay if breakfast is skipped.
Frnd: You made that up.
Me: No I did not.
Frnd: Well my mom says breakfast is not so necessary and not as important as lunch.

And as I cant say anything about her dear mother. I just shut up.

6.) When the internet is too slow. As the connection in my home is pretty fast I get irritated if the connection is slow. Especially if its very slow and I cannot play farmville.

Well, I'm done with the post but farmville is still loading. Arghhhh...!!!
Do you think it knows that I tried downloading cheat engines to cheat in farmville.. ??
I wonder... Hmmmm...

P.S: I forgot to include a thanks to a very important person in the previous post. Dr. Pratap Upadhya who got me started on blogging.. :) and as I call him my cool cousin..:)

The birthday post..

Me me me me....... :) :) and Harry Potter and J.K Rowling.. :) :) yeah I know.. :) :)
As its my birthday I wanted to write something really nice. Its peculiar how when you want to write something really good your mind draws a blank. I have been thinking from the past one week what will make a good post. After thinking hard and long (usually 5 - 10 mins a day) I decided to just sit in front of the computer on July 31st and write whatever comes to my mind. :)
Some of my friend have forgotten to wish me today. But I'm happy. Guess why.? I need not remember their birthday.. ha ha ha suckers.. :D.. Now I have a reason if I accidentally or intentionally forget their birthday..:) I was just kidding. When it comes to remembering birthdays I have a good memory.
Anyways, I want to thank a few people who have shown the utmost support.
  • My sweetheart Sis. She has been very supportive and reads every thing I write and tells me how it was. :) thank u sis.
  • My blogger friends who take time to read and comment on every post i.e Thousif Raza, Arpit Rastogi, Saru Singhal (I just love her poems. :) )..
  • My other buddies who read.
Well there it is..
My birthday post..
And to all the Harry Potter fans who don't have their birthday on July 31st.. :P :P ;)
Enjoy.. :)

The list of titles I had come up with for the blog...

I had written this way back.. It was in my drafts.. Just thought of putting it up..

So here goes..

First I titled the blog apropos.. So lets start with that..

1). Apropos: It meant "at the right time". I thought 'Well I had started the blog at the right time. So why not.. '. The description and the name didn't just fit in.

2). my blog..!!: Which as the title says i.e my blog. I soon found out that many blogs had this title.

3). Life and its stories: Never titled the blog with this. But that was the title which came to me when I was answering an exam paper..(Its coz the paper was damn easy)

4). The me in me speaking: This sounds good. I might just put this as the next title..

5). Being me: I thought this would make me come off as a very selfish person. With this title and the present description and all.. Hmmm..

6). me-ing : Thats just something I came up with to describe my blog..:) and loved it.. ;)

7). leonine: Meaning like a lion. I din't make this the title coz I don't think there is any connections between lions and being selfish. (M right, right?)

P.S: Nothing interesting right.? Well you will know why i wrote this on july 31st.. :) :)

There is a barrier.

Keeping words from my heart to pour down through my pen.

A sense of loss.

It is there to keep the pain.

Friday, July 1, 2011

This and that...

I am in my home right now with nothing much to do. I've to start working from September. Till then I'll be found lazing around in my home. So here are a list of things I do to keep me ocupado.

1. Perform a ceremonial funeral for a dead mosquito. Read eulogy and wear black.
I actually did this. Was wearing black already. You might think i am crazy and you are probably right. :)
2. Plan to take over the world by storm.
This is to plan to write a novel which will, you know, take over the world by storm. Just planning. Just planning. :)
3.Count the number of folders in your computer.
It might sound boring but when the internet connection is slow its very enjoyable. Ok Ok there are 61 folders. :)
4. Play Farmville.. :) :)

5. Plan a diet and a workout routine.
This actually stops at planning
6. Write stupid poems.
Like on the funeral of a mosquito.

The Funeral of the Mosquito
There it lay still on the wall.
Thinking about its day and all.
It was a very fine evening.
With lots of people surrounding.
With its snout in the air sniffing.
To check which human has been sweating.
Glad it was to find a lad.
Whose glasses were big and whose flesh was tad.
It lay still calculating.
Just to get the joy circulating.
Then came the sudden flash.
Was it a hand or was it a bat.
But there lay the mosquito on the floor dead as a squat.
Then came the ants to carry its body all around.
Showered with sympathy for it to be buried in a calmer place.
The proud beetles dug the grave.
For it to rest in peace in shade.
The blessings asked and paid.
There was drinks brought by the bees.
The food by the flies.
The butterflies brought the flowers.
Every insect could be seen.
Such was the funeral of the mosquito
7. Play Cityville.. :) :)

8. Plan to take over the world by storm - Sequel.
This is to plan to write a song which will you know take over the world by storm. Just planning. Just planning. :)
9. Plan on expanding the MDictionary

10. Planning on ways to expand my farm in farmville.

Well there it is. This is what I've been doing. If you have any crazy ideas like this I would be glad to follow.. :)

Then there are the other things. Like messaging..

Me: OMG..!! Did u come to know.??
Friend: WHAT? Wt happened?
Me: R u sure u dont know?? abt u know......??
Friend: No, Tell. wt happened..??
Me: U seriously dont know.?.?
Friend: No. nd u r getting on my nerves.
Me: How do u live with urself..??
Friend: Ok.. Wt is it tht i ws supposed to know..??
Me: How can u not know tht its 12 o'clock..??
Friend: arghhh..
Me: :D :D :D :D :D ha ha ha.. he he he.. :D :D :D

Me: Hi..:)
Friend: Hi.
Me: Bye..:)
Friend: Wht..??
Me: sorry tht was not me..
Friend: Who was it??
Me: Arpitha Holla.. :D :D :D
Friend: Idiot it ws u..??
Me: yeah.. gotcha.. :P

Then there is the occasional cooking.
1) Burnt chapathi.
2) Burnt dosa.
3) Under cooked upma.
4) Over cooked maggi.

Thats where my unique culinary skills stop me..

and I miss my friends. :(. Sometimes I'll be staring into space thinking of all the times spent together. So here is a short poem dedicated to dee, tp, deeps, p2, kallu, nassi, shri, bosch ash, deepi, sallu, chethu, tn, shru, shabbu, poori, pinto, renu, aparna, suma, chandu, kulls, ansi, praju, ayesh, sallu

Like the dew drops on a spider's web.
The grass grown on the steps.
A beauty it holds which no one knows.

Like the feeling you get when you make someone smile.
The smell of earth on a rainy day.
A joy it holds which no one knows.

Like the maggi made.
The shoulders drenched.
The lessons learnt.
The happy times.
The helping hands.
The silly fights.
The food shared.
The teasing bared.
The love shown.
The trust grown.
The friends it shows whom everyone knows.

:( :( I really miss you all..

Well that is all for now..
Take care.. :)

Wrong Timings

Imagine you are driving your car and you are all alone. You are in the middle of a pretty dense forest. The car suddenly breaks down. You check your cell and there is no network. And you have not seen a car or a person on your way. You decide to keep walking just staring at your cell. You just have your cell with you which has a balance of 20 bucks. After walking for a very long time you finally get network on your cell. You decide to call your friend. You unlock the keypad and you receive a message saying "Your Subscription for horoscope has been renewed and Rs.20 has been charged. Thank you."

Not over yet...

Then you get your horoscope for the day saying "Today someone will render you helpless and you will be utterly lost. The best advice would be to call up your friends for help. Good day."

HA HA.. You can add to this if you want to.. :) :)

Its just you......

I tried so hard to be the one for you.
To see you happy wit a smile on you.
To make your strays into a path to your dreams.
I tried to make you a person you could never be.

Now that you have left I feel so lost.
Holding an umbrella on a sunny day.
I wait for you like i wait for the rain.

If pain could be thrown away I could bury you alive.
You will know it how when u feel it slide.
How it can break u alive.

I would like to wish the hell for you.
But I wont and the reason is not you.
This might make u laugh n tease me true.
Coz that is not me thats just you.

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Is it the bright sun thats making you smile or

Is it your smile that is making the sun shine a little brighter

Is it the rain that is pouring because of your tears or

Is the tears trickling down your eyes because of the rain.

About Me and ME-ing

My hope is a single pin in a big hay stack.
My dreams are the big hay stack around the pin.
My confidence is the fish in the dead sea.
My patience is the salt of the ocean.
My determinations are many and actions are few.
My poems are lame and my posts are hewed.
With all these known about me and ME-ing.
Yet I say flock around my friends because I have put forth a slew.
which I just hope pleases you......

A blank paper,

A pen raised to write,

A thought,

A minute to understand,

That feeling,

A line written,

A barrier broken,

A feeling left behind on the paper,

The paper crumpled,

The satisfaction,

Another story left untold......
