Smiley Tag :)

April 14, 2009

”Don’t go ”, they said.

”But I have to, dont you see?”
”But why? Why now? We have just started getting to know you”
”Yes, I know but one does what one has to” she said.
”Will you forget us?” they asked.
”No….will all of you?”, she asked back unsure.
”I know we have only known each other since a few months. But the bonds of friendship have become really strong.”she said.
”What will you miss the most?”they asked.
”Well…writing and writing and err…all of you  ofcourse all of you! ”, she replied back.😀
”Yes, you are a comment monster err..we mean you always write comments so nicely😀
”Yes, I do don’t I?” she said all glowing.

Modesty clearly was not one of her virtues.😀


story shory ..pffttt!😛
that up there was my attempt at some ‘er‘ you know ‘ 55er’, ‘ 100er‘ or whatever ‘er‘….okay ‘Indyeah-er‘😀

 Coz people, I am telling you, all of you who have written these 55ers…I bow before all of you!😀
How? How in god’s name were you able to write ?
Awesome is all I can say😀

Okay now for the post

A  long, long time back…not that long really, but I know that the kid’s been impatient to see this tag all this while,  hence the long, long back reference😀
The kid in question being Vishesh ofcourse😀

Which other ‘ancient’ kid do you know in the blogworld?😀
HE had tagged me for a Smiley post 😀
Now granted that I am a Visheshified Indy right after the King of Smileys but a whole darn post on it?
Boggled my mind..
The possibilities people! the sheer possibilities!😀

So here it is! The tag!
Its got a lil of everything😀

and some history too😀
Couldnt let this opportunity for a lil history go could I?😀


A smiley, or happy face (☺/☻), is a stylized representation of a smiling human face, commonly represented as a yellow circle (or sphere) with two dots representing eyes and a half circle representing the mouth.
On the blogosphere nothing makes me smile more than this😀 and this😆
I can imagine people guffawing away to glory😀
 History of the Smiley here 😀
more here😉
and yet more 😛

Exactly the belief of one of my paranoid friends😀
Does the warning above  remind you of any friends?😀

Between the green and the saffron lies the irony ..
Mannu Uncle and his ‘awesome’ responses to everything😀

psstt read the chart behind Mannu Uncle closely😀

Shivraj Uncle loves his dapper suits the most😀
The five cartoons above courtesy Point Blank

This one was a reflection of so many sentiments for Dubya😆

Unfortunately he didnt…..jump that is😀

Reminds me of me …….when I was a kid😀 Everything was measured in terms of what I would get😀
Please click on the image above  to enlarge it
Just like so many of you, C&H is my favourite cartoon strip😀

Keep Smiling😀


Here are some of my fav standup comedians/comics😀

Jeff Dunham Rocks!😀

This one above is my fav!:D

And then there is the evergreen Russell Peters..(What has he done in his latest video?Sob!Someone please tell him to go back to his earlier brilliance )

here he is in his earlier brilliant avataar😀


Enjoy Russell Peters😀


And then there’s also Marcus Brigstocke😀
Do see this too😀 Subtle yet effective all the same😀

 DO watch more of the works of these people..specially Jeff Dunham😀



And then there is a very special moment here😀 An award from one of my oldest blogging friends, Kislay🙂
The award is really special coz it comes from this dude😀
Thanks a lot Kislay😀

Have read your thoughts and your ideas are pretty darn out of the box too and so I am more delighted than ever to take this from you!
Will go and dance a bit and then grin like crazy😀
Absolutely overwhelmed!! :))

And so I take the award with a bow and a jump !😀

For the award here are Kislay’s words😀

Here is an award for you . The Super Blogger award . This award is for those bloggers who blog a lot and get a lot of comments . You fit the bill . For your super-passionate,powerful,indyeah-ish,kickass posts, I confer upon thee, the Super Blogger award . :) I mailed you the image for the award .

I am ecstatic!😀 thank you Kislay!

I get encouragement because of words from friends like you🙂

(which reminds me that I also have to acknowledge the awards given earlier and pass them on )😀
*pouts*I dont want to😛😛

Is it a bird?Is it a plane?

no!its superblogger!😀

Kislay thank you so darn much!😀😀
Now lemme make people envious😉

Also Kislay I have not been able to read that post of yours… :(  have been rushing here and there like mad thats why🙂

but will  read it later for sure


This one’s for the love of a friend🙂

And because my friend is now a part of my life, so is the one who has my friend’s heart😀

Here’s wishing a Happy Birthday, one of many more to come to the father of a little girl , an imp of a girl who is special to me too and to the love of a friend’s life , a friend who is darn special too:)

His birthday is on 16th April🙂 1_birthdaycake

And these lines are for you dear friend and for your love.May both of you have everything you dream of and wish for..May you both always have a bond of love that grows stronger with every passing day….

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.


Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.

-Kahlil Gibran

May you be blessed with this and much, much more dear friend (((hugs)))

And now I am off for atleast twenty to umm some more days..will be attending two weddings will be off the blogosphere😦

Miss me😀
Coz I sure will miss this world right here😀
Rest later😀
Off I go on 16th yippee!😀



PS:-I will catch up on all the posts when I come back and I do mean ALL😀

Nitwit Nastik I remember the promise to watch and discuss the full video..and I definitely will when I come back🙂

Also wanted to know more about Hinduism in the same vein🙂 Will have a discussion when I get back🙂

    aww sho cute Pixie😀

  7. April 14, 2009 6:23 pm

    If this was your attempt to make me smile and laugh then not funny😥

    Where will I spam for 20 days? With whom will I chat for hours? I am addicted not to blogs but to my blogging buddies and you know that you are right at the top. Missssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssh You already😦

    Loved this Visheshi-fied post. Only you can write a 130+ comments post on Pseudo-secular Congress and then a fun filled one like this. Such extremes but with same ease. This place has everything which will get a reader hooked to.

    Kislay gave you an apt award. You DESERVE it. You are a SUPER BLOGGER in every way from posts to comments. The time you take to research and post and then you spend the same time to reply to comments. You are the BEST, girl!

    Aaa the C & H. I still have them in me. You do too.😀

    And ahem someone here just THANKED YOU for that awesome wishes. He is so happy that his saali is the first one to wish him. Now he is asking for his birthday present.😆

    Have a blast maadi! Enjoy! eat a lot! dance a lot! and just go have a BLAST. Will miss you but you deserve this break too. So just go rejuvenate yourself and come back with your awesome posts again.

    And that Indyeah-er ROCKED.

    Sometimes in life, you find a special friend. Someone who changes your life just by being a part of it.
    Someone who makes you laugh until you can’t stop. Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it. This is forever friendship.

    When you’re down and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. Your forever friend holds your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay. And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry.

    You have a forever friend, and forever has no end.

    And you know that the forever friend is the owner of this post. Do you think it is okay to have tears when I finished with my commenting here?

    me-(((((((((hugs)))))))thats all I can say or do right now…you made me all senti😦
    not fair!😦

    will miss you soo much too😦
    I am going to come back and write more on this post of yours thats a comment🙂
    but right now I am going to get over the wet eyes first….
    the lines..they are for you as well you know…coz they speak of all that you are to me too🙂

      coz you are the one whom I go to with all my doubts..:)and you always give the right advice🙂

      The birthday boy?😀 A gift is pucca whenever you all come to India🙂

      here’s wishing him once more:)

      yeah need to chill:)

      ((((hugs))for Peanut:)
      no more getting senti..k?
      been through enough wet eyes coz of your words already🙂

    This is not a post. This a train full of mail! With countless smileys hanging out like those canisters of milk one sees on the windows of many trains! Your 55er was very good…initially I thought you were talking about your leaving Blogger for WordPress! Comment Monster? No, no. Add a Post Monster to that too. Russel Peter is seriously funny. But does he have your stamina!!!!

    • April 15, 2009 5:34 am

      LOL!!Vinod sir😀

      that was some description!😀

    If you asks NRIs what scares them most about returning to India, most likely you will hear ‘Traffic’. Beautiful article on this subject:

    Our planners ignore a simple fact: walking is the basis of urban mobility.

    me-thank you so much for that link…you are so right…we are forgetting this basic fact…and walking on the path to self annihilation…what will it take to wake us up?:(
    I try to walk as much as possible…and try not to use cars…mostly try to use the metro…
    you said it in that one line..walking is the basis of urban mobility
