I started this blog in March 2008, after living up to one of my new-year resolutions to weed out all my other blogs (some of which were more than 2 years old) and to start writing afresh, here at MirrorCracked. In the four months since then, this blog has seen more than 10,000 hits, crossing the milestone yesterday around noon. I have a big smile on my face now and I want to thank each and every Reader. I am sponsoring unlimited food and drink to you all. Time and venue, we’ll decide based on your convenience and the depth of my wallet. 😀 So, let me know when you guys would be free to burn my money! Three Cheers for All of You!! 😀
I will do a couple of tags here, the first of which I borrowed from Rekha. As soon as a blog reaches 10,000 hits, we’re supposed to publish our very first post again. So, here it is! The post, dated March 16, 2008, written in NYC:
I started this blog with the intention of being naughty. I’m bored as hell with nothing to do and I thought if I could write some unimportant stuff here, I can vent my boredom. I’m from a quaint little city called Bangalore, south of a quaint country called India, which happens to be the best place in the whole wide universe. There are wide open skies, clear air, good people, ambient temperatures and half the world’s population and three-quarters of the vehicles of the world. There’s no paranoia, no racism, no street brawls and no such thing as an indecent exposure. I love it there!
I’ve had a lot of blogs in my time, and I’ve found it hard to settle down to one. Principally, its because of my diversified interests in everything benign. Does that make sense?
Vatson has already commented on this post, I see. Well, what can I say? People recognize quality!
So, this brings me back to my original question: Yaake? (It means “Why?” in my language), and I answer it: Summne (”No reason”).
The second tag I’m going to do is one I borrowed from Shefaly. She had tagged me with a branding meme a long time ago, and since I still haven’t found the time to complete it, I’m doing the other interesting one, so as not to disappoint her! 🙂
I am: a bit confused.
I think: I am losing my mind here!
I know: that I am God’s biggest mistake!
I want: to go home and sleep for 48 hours!
I have: been thinking something… Hmmm…
I wish: for more wishes! 😀
I hate: a few people in my life, but can’t really help it! 😀
I miss: being in love! 😀
I fear: slimy insects!
I feel: the urge to scream out loud…
I hear: deafening silence!
I smell: coffee in the office pantry, where I’m heading after posting this! 😀
I crave: for banana pancakes and honey! Slurp!
I search: for the one who shall remain forever.
I wonder: if I can finish my work in time today…
I regret: not being able to hold on to her!
I love: the smell of rain in summer.
I ache: when I twist my body in an awkward angle! 😛
I care: not one bit for the political jerks in the world! 😀
I am not: a religious guy!
I believe: I can fly!
I dance: when I am high! 😀
I sing: in the bathroom and while riding the bike!
I cry: not…
I don’t always: tell the truth! Hee Hee Hee
I fight: with myself a lot!
I write: to please the Reader!
I win: always!
I lose: never!
I never: lose! 😛
I always: try not to repeat myself! 😀
I confuse: if I can’t convince!
I listen: very well…
I can usually be found: online! 😛
I am scared: of my own shadow! It’s a very powerful piece of dark magic!
I need: to be constantly reminded of my own mortality!
I am happy about: the fact that my blog has reached 10,000 hits in 4 months! 😀
Cheers Everyone! 😀
