Its always the little things

Its always the little things. Its the Archive button in Gmail. Its the way you can always keep those emails you don't want to see everyday, don't want any visible indication of, but just can't get yourself to delete. Its when you notice the girl you met yesterday has your name stored in her cellphone. And it spells 'Viggie'. Its the couple next to you, sitting in a Coffee Day, kissing. Its the guy, proudly looking around to make sure someone saw. Its moving into a new apartment and realising that the thing that pisses you off the most, is not the cracked tiles or the creaky fan, but rather the fact that you have a whole new set of hot/cold faucets to get used to. Its taking a day off from work, to attend a seminar and reading this the whole time (Thanks, Swaroop. Its delicious !). Its great Italian food, a light drizzle and candles. Its the promise of a fun weekend.

Yeah, the little things.

Grafx, I LIKE Grrl. Don't let Viggie over there get you down!
And why were people making out in Cafe Coffee Day? And why were you reading when you should have been working? And most importantly, WHAT were you doing going through this chick's phone book?
Think about that, Viggie. :) (is that like veggie with an 'i'?)

Don't let Viggie over there get you down!

You can say that again !!! ;)

a. I don't know why they were making out. Maybe because it was wide open, with like 15 people around...
b. Because I'm cool like that and I have a manager who trusts me ;)
c. It was on her CELLY !

Yeah, just like eM is like yum, with an e.

Dear Mr Vignesh-
I'm very sorry I called you Viggie. Now can I please have the details I requested. You know where to find me.

Kind Regards,
Mint Chutney

I'm curious. At what point exactly did this web log go from being dead (never updated and no audience) to so frequently updated with the teeming masses thronging to it? (Even with content of such *cough* arguably questionable *cough* quality.)

A stellar comeback. *Pats back in a totally non-gay way*

A follow up question would be, what is the critical mass in terms of your daily other-such-place commentage (you know, you're so good, no, you're so good, no, you are) you needed to initiate this turnaround?

hey vigs! for the nth time now, u've missed the all-important "n" in my name. u always manage to spell my name as "madar" and not as "mandar". :p

Italian food, drizzle, and candles... the combo reminds me of an evening when I had invited about half a dozen friends over for beer and pizzas, went out to get the beer, got soaked, and found myself locked out of my apartment when I returned. There was a power cut, my mobile was out of charge, I couldn't call for help, etc. I realized the full implication of the Butterfly Effect that evening. Quite a disaster. Hoo boy.

Vig

Get a RSS feed da! Better way of knowing when your blog gets updated than polling ur page.. Or do you have it already?

 
At June 10, 2005 11:34 PM, Blogger Vignesh said...

Minty: Your wish is my command ;)

Wahgnube: HAHAH !! That was blatantly hilarious, just what I've come to expect. To answer your question, I would say about 50 a day ;) You should try it, its fun !! :))

Madarn: Most humble apologies :)) How fares the thesis ? TeX treating you well, I hope !

Senthil: Yes. Italian food is evil. Sometimes :))

Krish: Dei, all blogspot blogs have an Atom feed. I have turned mine on and it can be found at http://vigvg.blogspot.com/atom.xml . Firefox should find it automatically, with its new Live Bookmark feature, when you visit the blog.

I've been trying like crazy to avoid saying this, but every time I see this post, I can't help but imagine a bunch of cute baby seals being clubbed. Clubbed hard.

EVERY SINGLE "its" in that post was supposed to be "it's" - the contraction of "it is" - instead.

But then you already knew that, and just typoed 12 times. More counting similar misuse in the comments.

There, I see smiling baby seals now.

Die, baby seals. Die !! MUHUAHUAHAUH !!!

Call it blogger's license or whatever... I started with 'it's' but they just didn't look right. So there ;)

Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you! I have a diet food site/blog. It pretty much covers diet food related stuff.
