51 syllables

A stuffy nose. Laziness coupled with post-lunch trauma. An impressive memory.

nightingale singing
fragrance like a warm blanket
a stolen pleasure

The haiku above is dedicated to a most wonderful, beautiful and interesting woman whom I have recently had the pleasure of meeting. A woman I cannot wait to get to know better.

emotional sounds
a rampage of love and faith
a shoulder to weep

The second one was written for a friend, who I think needs someone to sit her down and tell her how special she is. Anyone game for a cheer-up trip to Chennai ?

Hi Vignesh! A very insightful and meaningful post indeed. You are a great friend, dude.

After reading your post, I read Grrl's post too. She must be feeling terrible. But, with friends like you, I'm sure, she'll get over all the bad things. :-)

@Grrl:
Don't worry, Grrl. Happy times will be back soon! :-)

Yo Vignesh,
interesting blog man!! :) been a reading your blog on and off and have been meaning to comment for quite a while... but hey , im the procrastination king...anyway, this is more like a letter than a comment but I figured that since this letter has so much to do with blogs and such, that i'll just post this as a comment. :)
so first of all, who is this fragrance you speak off ?!
agree with you about madras and the people there. and to all of vig's women readers (if you'll happen to be reading this), just my little endorsement of what a nice guy Vig is :) thats to you too fragrance girl.
I have a lot of interesting stories of Mr nice guy Vig. anyway... dude, vig, how do you add links ? i'd like to add a link to your blog from mine.. and yea, if you don't read this comment, ill just mail you all this stuff sometime :)
so take care bro!!
oh and finally, i think i'll be in blore june 8th to 15th maybe 18th.
so hoping to see you then for sure!
later dude,
-s
p.s. did you get that email with the paper and stuff ?

Haiku for mystery
Really is history
Time to make us all agog
and reveal more details in your blog!

It's the a,a,b, b rhyme scheme!
And reaalllly bad poetry.. but you get the picture. :)

K: Yes, I am... aren't I ?!?! ;)

Sam: Yo Sammmmmyy !! Wassup dude !! So finally got around to dropping by my poor blog...

The fragrance I speak of... ask Mimi, I was chatting with her about it yesterday ;) Thanks for that little endorsement btw !!

You can add links by editing your template. Just log into your Blogger Dashboard, and there should be a link to the template. You can edit that and change as you wish.

Yeah, Im sure that those interesting stories should make for some amazing blog posts ;)

Thats excellent news dude !! Lalit will be here in May and if you drop in in June, that makes my summer very exciting indeed !! See ya soon !!!!

 
At April 20, 2005 6:08 AM, Blogger Vignesh said...

eM: Poor eM. I told her about that stuff she was sniwiifffffing... didn't listen... Good thing you told us about the rhyme scheme... otherwise we wouldn't have got it at all ;)

Grrl: Your wish is my command.. me all better now !! Thanks !!!!

Swathi: Hi there.. yes, that is my single claim to whatver fame ;) But glad you liked the play though... I shall convey your apologies to the cast of 'Madness' !! No point apologising to me... I was just the messenger ;)

Vignesh: No.. wait.. thats me.. oops... HAR HAR HAR ;)

 
At April 20, 2005 10:34 AM, Blogger samvith said...

hahaha,
yeah bro, finally got down to leaving a comment or two on your blog. about the 'fragrance' girl you speak of, sure, i'll ask mimi, but who is this mimi you speak of ;)?
and yea, stories about nice guy vig - vig you should translate some of them into blogs, i admit i'm not brave enough to post those rather sensitive stories up here :) but for those reading,heres a jist of these stories- these stories basically concern MR nice guy vig taking care of drunk people. which is just the start, whats even cooler and borderline insane ;) is that theres not a word of complaint from the guy when his help is met with little or no appreciation from the parties concerned and in some cases , his help was met with , shall we say , hostility.
i hesitate to elaborate cause i don't like the idea of denouncing one to praise another, but you get the idea right? :)
vig, thanks for the info on posting of links. cya in june man!!!

Hi,

Whoa! I had to scroll a long way down before I found this comment box. Long list of admirers! You deserve it all and more. Get well soon, if you haven't already gotten well.

And whoever got you to write those words has to be special. Best of luck!

Sammmy: HAHAHAH !! Yeah, yeah... Didn't want to offend Mimi's privacy and all that, so hence the Godawful nickname ;) Thanks for that, but that weekend was a series of really unforutnate events and what's more, you are right. Really not nice to say anything about them... but I still have that hilarious video, where I just started cribbing to you, in front of that awesome sunset !! Man, that cracks me up everytime !!!

Rapz: Why the tsk tsk at J ?!?!?

Rainy: Thanks dude ! Though if you notice, its mostly Grrl, trying to get at me with a broom ;)

Grrl: Me all good now !! A great show and a wonderful day with a great friend have left me recharged for the next few months !!

Anon: No !!! My iPod goes with me you hear !! I shall take it with me !!! If I can't have it NO ONE CAN !!!!

Grrl: Hmm... My whole apt is basically a broom closet... so there isn't much wrong in what you said ;)
