Let’s Rule it… Rule it.

#ideas
I think I am jinxed!
When I go out of town, and wifey and Mom are home alone, I come back to find that they aren’t speaking with each other. When I switch on the TV to watch news after a week, I learn that America is left with not one candidate they want to really truly vote for in the coming elections. When I eat out and return home after dinner, I realize that wifey had made my favorite chhole-bhature for dinner, and when I decide to ditch the office party and arrive home in time for dinner, I end up shoveling down khichhadi!
So when I returned to Blogger’s World this morning (baited by Colette’s post,) I wasn’t surprised. It appears that the jinx is still strong for I once again see locked horns amidst clouds of steam rising from some heated discussions.
The point is – can we have a quick discussion on the rules of posting to the forum? Which are rules that we find most irksome? If each of us could list the rules we dislike, we could statistically come up with a list of, say, five rules that the majority wants to follow. As they would be OUR rules, conformance should improve (fingers-crossed, we never know with the Anandhotep-Types,) and we would feel more relaxed, posting, commenting, or even snapping at the heels of one-another.
Those among you who want to pack me up in a holdall and shunt me off to another galaxy would be glad to know that Mom and wifey would thank you for it, and even pay the price of the holdall.

This post is for all the members to comment upon…but I am tagging only the member I know personally and I trust that they’ll excuse my temerity.

Friends Missing From Action!

Hello Friends 🙂

As Meg also said a few days ago–there are many friends, beautiful people we met during Blogging 101 course and who kept interacting here afterwards too, who are missing now. 🙂

I hope all of them are doing well and busy with happy things 🙂

This post is to remember those beautiful people so that they know they are being missed. You can tag other people who you think are being missed 🙂

Mask: @theanonymoustalker Already did a post on his blog saying he is busy with something. He is a witty blogger and a nice friend. He has helped many of us with feedback and also did a feature post here. We miss you Mask 🙂

Francesca: @francescabergamasco who writes about second-life is being missed. I have not heard from her since a long time. She is a very genteel lady and her posts make you feel like visiting another world. We miss you Francesca 🙂

TBIPS @thebrunetteinthepinkscarf: I occasionally see some posts from her but rarely and she has not responded to any tags even here, so I doubt if she would respond to this one. Consider this a challenge dear and since you are always ready to take a challenge just say hello to us 🙂 I hope you are doing fine and you know you are being missed 🙂

Ananya: @ananyabha: Not heard a word from this girl. She must be very busy with work or something. I hope everything is fine with you Ananya. Now don’t get angry ok? 🙂

Precious: @thepreciouslifeofprecious: How have you been? Busy with studies? I hope you are doing great. 🙂

Becky @beckybwinch: You don’t belong to the league of other friends. I mean you are quite active. I saw your post today in my mailbox and willing to visit. Just that you have not been here since a long time. No need to respond. I hope you are doing great. Love and light ❤

Adrienne: @getyourlenson: I see your Facebook updates but miss you here. Hope you are doing good. Not blogging either I guess. 🙂

Ramida: @ramida78: You went to study and you employed a hack to break a lock and since then I have not heard from you. If you see this message, know that you are being missed 🙂 I hope you are doing great 🙂

Ivan @ivanproust: You must be busy with studies. I don’t see blog updates either. I hope you are doing great. If you see this, know that you are missed 🙂

Althea: @infobloomer: Not heard a word from you since long. I hope you are doing great. If you see this, know that you are being missed 🙂

Jose: @joseelavallee: I know you are busy with art work and learning many things. I just wanted to tell you that you are missed here. Love and light ❤

Catherine: @wynstep: Mamma! You are an admin here! I hope you are doing good. Missing you for a long time now 🙂

Words: @wordscoffeeandlacedresses: There are no blog updates and you don’t visit here either. Must be superbusy. I hope you are doing great. You are being missed 🙂

Ellie: @welshshortbread: I hope you are doing great in whatever you are busy with. If you see this, know that you are being missed. 🙂

@wanderlusteternal : Still waiting for your article on Srilanka. I hope I didn’t miss it. Didn’t hear anything from you since long. I hope you are doing good. You are being missed here. 🙂

Sinead: @continuingwithme: I hope you are doing good. We miss you here. I keep seeing your blog posts so I know you are active. It’s alright if you don’t have time to visit here. Stay blessed 🙂

Cathy: @cathylynnbrooks: I hope you are doing good Cathy. We miss you here 🙂 Love and light ❤

Kathy: @kathymays: We miss you here. I hope life is treating you very well 🙂 Love and light ❤ Anand 🙂

Love and light ❤

Anand 🙂

Lost my wallet. Who am I?

Lost my wallet. Who am I? 

I am craving for your love 

A constant battle per second daily 

Sunshine and smiles make me happy

Your inviting smile sealed in memory 

In the deep fear I sleep 

What if I hadn’t found you…

Bags packed, ticket ready. Passport lost!  Continue reading

Poetry Corner Five Invites You!

Hello Friends 🙂

Poetry Corner Four has been a wonderful experience. Many friends suggested that it made sense to them, as if many minds became one in the process, without knowing it. Someone might say that it’s just our minds doing tricks to impose sense where there was none. Someone also suggested about Synergy.

I feel, all of those suggestions are wonderful. This event is kind of unique and wonderfully creative. I feel I have seen events like this before, but they were not this much fun. I heartily thank Garth who introduced the idea and all of you who so enthusiastically participated.

In case, anyone wants to see how Poetry Corner Four turned out to be, please use this link:

It’s A Wonderful Life After All!

I invite you to participate for this week’s event.

We have received 16 entries so far. Please send your entry as soon as possible to my mail ID: thinkerv0@gmail.com

There is no theme and 6 words might be random, poetic or in form of a story.

I wish you all a very wonderful Wednesday.

Love and light ❤

Anand 🙂
