I am romantically challenged!!!

Mentally challenegd ... physically challenged ...Romantically challenged was unheard of before ... until ofcoure i saw a dame sporting a tee reading thus!!!It took me a good couple of seconds before the meaning hit my thick skinned brain in entirety. :)... and lo! this spurred my otherwise idle mind into incessant activity for the next few days ...What does it feel like to be romantically challenged? ... who is romantically challenged ? ? ... why romantically challenged ??? ... and am i romantically challenged?!? Phew!!!

Weird slogans ... weirder race for proclaiming your mind ( read funny slogans) unto the world! :)

Sample more ... " Garhwal Express" ... "Dad says no slogans"--- came up in a conversation with my brudder ... and here is one that takes the shine off them all!!! ... "Guns and Girls only for Jatt Boys" ... read o n a car in Ggn!!!!!! :P Darn! If i may say so ...

"Heyyyyy" , i hear my mind scream at me, ... "what a way this all is to make a statement. What a way to express yourself ... and what a riot of words"!!! The world is but a canvas to the imagination!

This takes me back to an erstwhile class i had. Strange are the ways of the world. Indeed. Shops ... restaurants ... cafes ... salons ... et al! Nice names they have ... and a never before appaeal to their punchlines ... One that is very in your face ... and hits you right there where it ought to. Dead on!

Why then should one ever rubbish those witty one liners as outright silly?!?

For in the words of Edwin Land, "Creativity is the sudden cessation of stupidity" !!!!!!!!

i suffer from verbal diarrhoea ;)

Aye! I talk a lot. Eversince i realised what it was to talk... never has there been a day that my tongue has refused its office! :)
My tongue always going, spirits always at high water mark ( this i lift, with due apologies, from the ever revered "Wuthering Heights"! ) ... i have had people christen me "chatterbox" / "joshtype" etal!!!
Oft i pause to think, that i must rein in this side of me. Wherever i have go, i have connected with people ... irrespective of age, gender, strata, etc. Not even two minutes have i taken to start up a conversation ...
Yet, i have, from time to time, sat back to deliberate... " do not people always say that while it is important to be a good conversationalist, it is imperative to be a good listener ?"
That is another matter altogether that i have recently come across a splendid quote ( more of a sarcastic remark...ergo well loved by me ;) )... and here it goes "A good listener is necessarily thinking about something else!!!"
So the fires of "incessant banter" within have yet again been stoked ... and so shall they stay until the day i die!!! :)
I feel that there is so much to share ... so much to talk about ... that i'd rather talk on! It is a joy to see people who you would otherwise never have imagined could utter more than a word, speak with zeal ... just because i started with my silly banter ... in the process, putting them at ease! :) ( yes, have been waxing rather eloquent about myself, but i am a self made "banter queen" and absolutely adore my creator!") ...
... and as i pen this post, another quote crosses my mind and it says " Whatever you do, do not congratulate yourself too much. You are not that good!"
This world is full of brilliant paradoxes! What to my mind is a virtue, to others will be a vice.
Yet, i'd rather swear allegiance to myself and stay the way i am ...

PS: Just to remind you, i don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it!
By now, i am smiling; and this should scare you!!!

cogito ergo!

Now that i have had sufficient proof that i exist ... and that i have a psuedo perfect head upon my body ... i (with great gumption and gusto) commence my "blogourney" !!!
Yes, i am an amateur ... but Time is but a number/figure ... and ergo, can always be tackled!
Behold!!! ... will ye? ... how this green blogger blossoms into a veteran of sorts! :)
And it goes without saying, that "you" ( every blogger on the house) will be the harbinger of this sublimal change!!!
Here's to the eternal spirit of "the Blogger" ... to an amateur ( seeking to transform into a veteran) ... and to Blogspot!


PS: Your comments/complements will be taken in the right spirit indeed!
