Recently!

1. I have completed registration of books on rack number two of almirah number thirteen. It might complete for the rack number three today. Then two more racks.

2. Though i issued Peter D Polnay’s The Umbrella Thorn for myself: haven’t proceeded beyond page first so far. Aditi and Other Deities in Veda by MP Pandit has reached about 120 pages, give or take, yet to complete reading 185 pages I need time. I got the book issued on December 24th. I hear you when you say: “Why should I bother about your narcissistic procrastination. ” You’re right. Compare this with Lori. She might already have completed reading dozens of book by now. And she’s a mother. In my defence: I play a lot of word games and even there I am not making top of the charts. Where was I?

Not very impressive!

3. My score in the screenshot above isn’t very impressive. I intend to reach to the top spot. But that means: sleeping less, talking lesser and spending more time on vocabulary.com

4. The theatre rehearsal in library is crowded. Those people don’t have any big hall like that. I can’t waste electric power so I share hall with them in evening. It’s easier sometimes but being with twenty people in a hall isn’t fun. It’s not my idea of fun. It takes toll on my energy. They have stretched it.

5. I didn’t fully comprehend what this NGO was about and what was their source of income. Now that I do it a bit i see why things are the way they are.

6. I swept library floor and verandah. Collected garbage from around it and burnt it along with some dried leaves which were present in the dump.

Library, Gandhi Smarak Bhavan Chhatarpur Madhya Pradesh

7. Filled two buckets of water for kitchen.

8. Discussed a chapter “Packing,” by Jerome K Jerome.

9. The story was comic. The funniest of punch seems to be about Montmorrency. I thought it was a person. When I found it was a dog I felt such comedy on a mentally retarded being was not justified. Then it occurred to me that it must have been close to its owner, the author of the text.

10. Sat in the granary field basking in the Sun. Watched birds. And an amazing dance!

11. The word Tohu comes from Jewish mystic tradition Kabbalah. It means chaos. I invented Tohu Verse form.

What Was It About, Come Again?

Terse writers

Write at Reuters

Tergiversate sedate sate addlepate

Rebate ate a bit late

Then they went on a ride

Sitting astride

In search of a hen

With a mighty pen

Lest it might hide

In anandamide dam

Damson on Madison

Square are squalid

Lid opened dense carrefour

Our roustabout roundabout bouts

What was it about?

Come again?

1. I played ten vocabulary jams with following recent achievements on vocabulary.com:

Leader of the Jams: Ranked 3rd this week!
Jam Team Leader This Week!
Winning Team Member This Week!

2. As you can see: in all those formats my performance has been better than PC. It doesn’t mean however that I am a better player. It only means: I played more number of games this week.

3. PC and Stephen D shown in the images are two players who can easily score in excess of 900. I might have scored 900 in 2020 but don’t remember ever scoring it this year. As told before: internet speeds here are also responsible.

4. Nationality as declared:

PC: Unites States of America

Stephen D: Japan

Hang L: China

10( Author and admin here aka dancinglightofgrace ): India

5. I had strange dreams. Identified it was long since I moved out of those black holes. Kept paying attention to events and people far too much than I should have. All my attention should be given to only thing that matters.

What Might A Suitable Title For This Post Be?

1. Played 6 vocabulary jams:

Scores: (745, 720,740,850,830,595)

2. Getting two scores in excess of 850 is quite good. I received first rank in all of them but first game where Vishnu Ram scored 890.

3. I played some jams yesterday evening. Was happy to play along with PC. In the very first game my score was 730 which matched that of PC’s. Though hang L scored 830 in that one.

4. I realised, as i kept playing: PC doesn’t get scores in excess of 900. He only gets them in excess of 850 on average.

5. The internet speed in this region limits my score on image tests. Images get loaded later than they do for USA counterparts.

6. Moreover, my score on fill-in-the-blanks can’t be improved in the short run. However, i am happy to have found some players who are surprisingly well endowed:

PC, Claire G, Vishnu Ram and Stephen are four such players. Even hang L performs well.

7. My ID is 01. I invite you to play with me.

8. Yesterday evening i had to buy a choke for the rod in the library. The receipt was not written properly. The shop owner hardly had time to write the full name of the institute. The librarian said that office might object at the time of reimbursement.

9. Spent at least 30 minutes to help them attach an iron wire fence to keep pigs from entering into the fields where they eat like pigs and defecate on crops. As such there are many dogs and puppies but the pigs are difficult to catch once they enter: even with expert help.

10. I came across a new meaning of the word riddle today. I only knew its meaning as a noun: puzzle. However, to riddle as a transitive doesn’t mean to puzzle: it means to spread or diffuse through. In the context of the question that was put during the quiz. I was puzzled. Here’s a puzzle in form of Tohu verse:

Riddle

In the middle,

Which grates,

Ginger,

Bread read red pasta paste

The taste might defy

Your expectations,

Gingerly gingerly lyrically calculably

I say unto thee heeheehee

Heel of Achilles

11. Tohu means chaos. Jewish mystic tradition Kabbalah gives the definition. Chaos indicates lack of understanding. That which is considered dissolving chaotic event horizon from a viewpoint is revealed to be a building block or rung of a ladder from another.

I invented Tohu verse form.

The image was captured by me in the premise of Gandhi Smarak Nidhi Chhatarpur Madhya Pradesh as i took a break from work. Thanks for your presence and support!

1. Played 8 jams in Shatabdi ground on vocabulary.com with beautiful view of Moon.

31122020

2. The title of the post suggests ranks i received this evening.

3. I walked and ran for about an hour and forty minutes as a preparation for the upcoming marathon.

4. Vishnu Ram, Stephen and PC played very well. Congratulations and a very happy new year if you are reading.

5. I missed playing with Claire G. My ID is now 01. I would feel happy if you play with me.

6. It took me about 4 hours to empty the garbage tanks and dump it to Nadep posts number 3 and 4 in Gandhi Smarak Nidhi premise.

7. Registered about 25 titles in library. Couldn’t count as i needed to anxiously search for my matchboxes which were stolen by someone. It might be the same person who puts Ganesha to sleep while he needs to play. Yes you!

8. Could score better on the jam on words derived from Arabic. After reading Pam’s comment which was made about an hour ago it dawned on me that ‘Palm Leaves’- the title kind of sounds like her name! Palm/Pam. Homonyms. Another unintended synchronicity. I actually meant that my posts were deleted by someone and i had to publish them by moving them from ‘trash’ to ‘published’ status about a week ago. I think she didn’t read that post and hence the confusion.

9. The 21st year of 21st century begins. I don’t have time to reflect on what was gained or lost last year. I would have loved to watch a good print of movie Tenet by Christopher Nolan this evening but it’s not available.

Darkness Hearkens!

1. As i was reading ‘one proud post’ submitted by Vani: it struck me.

2. There were two synchronicities. Two coincidences.

3. I uploaded two pictures on instagram after running and walking for 1 Hour 50 minutes in Shatabdi ground. I also played vocabulary jams with PC, Stephen and others on vocabulary.com. My ID is 01. I invite you to play with me.

4. I labelled pictures as ‘two moons’ and ‘towards Cancer’ as Moon is entering the sign Cancer by transit.

Two Moons or three?

5. The story has a reference to ‘two moons’ a theme also found in Vyasa’s Bhagvata with 4 verses. It also has a reference to Cancer.

6. Those two coincidences look quite normal. The story was written on 23.10.2020. I received a blow with a bamboo cane on my left thigh by a black commando of military earlier this year on 11.4.2020. 23 years after i was beaten by one Manoj Chaturvedi in class 7th in Maria Mata Convent High School. It was the only case of brutality against me other than my parents who used to beat me on a regular basis until i reached class 9th. They kept doing that in subtler forms later on.

7. Kristina Van Hoose’s cat was named Smore. I read her stories and they touched my heart. Then she disappeared. A verse for the cat of freckled lady:

Smore more morel

Relevant losel sells

Elliptical ellipsis sisal salut Salubrious

Lipton tonnage age old doldrums

Mystery darkens darkness hearkens.
