Comebacks And Undeserving Awards!

Wow, I needed that break. I feel refreshed and I have that urge to impart my nonsensical wisdom again. I think bloggers need a break from time to time to gather their thoughts and make a comeback, when things seem to go downhill as far as the quality of the posts are concerned.

Of course, few bloggers take a break because they embark on a journey from which there is no turning back – they get married.

There’s a lot of love happening in the blogosphere nowadays and I choked on my cheeseballs (Er, no puns, they were cheeseballs – the edible kind) when I heard that Vimal is no longer single. For ditching Club Singles, I am tempted to scream at him, but I’ll swallow my pride and wish him all the best.

Speaking about comebacks and marriages, Scorpria made a comeback yesterday, after a hiatus of 5 weeks. I won’t mince words – she got married. On behalf of everyone in the blogosphere, please accept my sincere condolences. But, I did like her comeback, though. I declare her the The Comeback Queen, and as a wedding present, I give her this very nice plaque (Er, I mean it in strictly non-dental terms).


Vimal and Smita gave me a few awards while I was away chasing sea monkeys:

  1. The Butterfly Award, for the coolest blog.
  2. The Proximity Blog Award, for investing and believing in proximity – nearness in space, time and relationships.


Gee, I’m honored, and I don’t know if I really deserve these accolades. A lot of people would agree with me and call me a cranky old hag.

As far as I’m concerned, everyone who blogs deserves this award. I think I’ll take the diplomatic route on this one and give away these awards to everyone who reads this post, but in particular, I insist that these five bloggers accept it. I’d like to draw the readers’ attention to these fascinating bloggers, who’re new to me:

  1. Valerine, who’s learning the ropes, and prefers to call me the Blog Guru, instead of the Love Guru.
  2. Alice, who wasn’t whom I thought she was.
  3. Hope, who’s quite ruthless.
  4. Kiran, who hunted me down on Facebook, and
  5. Shoe Girl, who owes me an email.

I am also supposed to do a couple of tags. I’m back to my one-post-a-day routine, now that I’m completely broke after my shopping escapades. Had a couple of yo-yo moments, obviously, which I’ll share soon.

Cheers to all! 🙂

You surely re-define blogging !!! Cheers Keep it up !!!
