HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!


Sorry for being irregular in blogosphere these days .My office shift timings doesnt  allow me to do anything else other than  sleeping  😛 . However i have taken a new year resolution that i will be active from now on 😛 .

This is my first post of the year and i hate to say that it is going to be a Tag 😛 .No , Dont curse me . Its raining tags these days . People are getting more and more creative  by finding new ways to do tags 😛 .

Assuming that i am not weak in mathematics , I can be sure that i have more than 6 tags remaining . And if i include the fact that i have been tagged to do same meme multiple times the count can go beyond 10 😥 .

Well ,lets start

Vishesh has tagged me to write words starting with N

NATASHA -Well thats the first word that comes to my mind. Natasha was one of best looking girls of my school. Before You jump into conclusions Let me clarify that it has nothing to do with crush or love .  The reason why this word is here is known to 5 of my school friends and i would like to keep it that way 😛 .

NEW YEARThis word is here for obvius reasons . Happy  new year once again 😀  .

NO/ NEVER –  These are the Words that are very difficult to say especially to friends.

NEAT – This word never goes well along with me  . Dont take it too literally 😛 . I do take bath  daily 😛 . I was talking about my room and things around .

NAME  – Everything in this world gets an identity through this word .

NIGHTMARE – My nights are incomplete without a nightmare . I have faced everything  in  my dreams from my chemistry teacher to dementores :P.

Arpit tagged me to write words starting with T

TECHNOLOGY – This has changed the way we do things . Imagine a days  life without technology  !!

TIME – The most important thing these days next to money  😛  Time and tide waits for no one so manage ur time properly and keep blogging even if u are busy 😀 .

TITANIC : – The most overrated ship movie of Hollywood 😛

TASHAN –  Worst movie in the history of indian cinema 😆 .

TRUST – The most important factor in any relationship .

TELEPORT – I need a teleport device right now .

Phew!!! Writing a Post has become more arduous than ever . MY PC is a wreck . It sucks . My keyboard isnt working properly , the Processor is  slower than a snails movement . Even 8085 microprocessor would be faster.

Anyways  i guess its not the right place and time to crib.

Nice to be back 🙂 !

Have a Happy and Prosperous year ahead .

PS : Ignore my spelling mistakes 😛

SHABBASH INDIA


Team india  is on a roll. Series win against Australia made them the top contenders to replace worlds best team and now with this improbable win we have just proved that we are almost there .Yes , All we need to do now is to conquer srilankan lions in their own den and to keep up the winning rate abroad.

Mondays win was a special  one. Very special indeed . After those gruesme terror attacks, atleast cricket lovers like me have something to cheer abut. Winning on home soil is no new thing for us . I dont think india had any chances of winning the game till 4th day post lunch session . India was facing a defeat that looked more or less inevitable . Chasing more than 350 runs in the fourth innings n a fifth day pitch is not an easy task .But the brilliant knock by sehwag set opened up the game against all dds . Time and again sehwag has proved how imprtant he is for this indian line up . What t osay about sachin. !! He is  GD . Yes , cricket is a relegion for me like millions f  others and sachin is my GoD . Scoring his 41st hundred through the last winning strke made my day  😀 . I mean  i was tired to see him getting out in 90s. He would have Got more than 100 international hundreds in DI and test combined if he had not been out in 90s . Yuvaraj as usual played his natural game and thats what made easy fr him t scre runs quickly .

.The test has brought in lot of positives fr the indian cricket TEAM. it showed the temperament ,fighting spirit and ability of  indian cricket team to win under any circumstances  .After australia i dont think any team has dominated us in a test  on home soil. England did really well to control 70 percent of the test .They had almost  won the test . Just one session took the game away from them .Strauss played exceptionally well . Hitting two centuries in a same test in n kids job that to in subcontinent.

All in all  it was a wonderfull test match . The best thing was after a long time there was a result in a test match played in chennai 😛 . I just hope our team conitnues the gd form and replace australia as the worlds best team soon 🙂 .

OFF TOPIC :

This is my 200th post . Gosh !! I never thought i would make it this long . Blogging which started as a tool to kill time has become an obsession now . Although i am not posting as regularly as i was , it still remains an important part of my life .

I would like thank all the regular ,irregular and other  types of readers  😛 Without whom i would not have continued blogging.

A special  mention to all the bloggers on my blogroll .

It has been raining awards in blogosphere . Last week avant grade Bloggies awards were annunced . Reema and Amit stole the show completely 🙂 . Congratulations to them and all the other winners 🙂 .

Vimmu , Bhargavi , Aparna , Reema awarded me with these awards . Thanks a lot guys 🙂 .

Kiran has awarded me with the Friendship Bracelet 🙂 🙂 . Thank  you so much .

Hereby i pass the above awards to everyone on my blogroll (updated today after a long time 🙂 ) .

WordPress 2.7 !!!


The wait is over. WordPress 2.7 is here. Don’t know how many were actually waiting for it like me 😛 .
The Dashboard looks awesome . The last one sucked , I hated wordpress for that 😛 . Now i am again in love with it :lol:. Best thing about wordpress 2.7 is that it is very well organized .Looks neat and tidy .
You have a screen option that allows you to select the things u want to get displayed on the dashboard like recent comments , incoming links ,Your stuff ,recent drafts, blogstats and Quickpress. Infact i am using the quickpress for this post. Dont know how it will turn out as no options formatting are given .

With the change in the dashboard i have changed my theme too .Right now experimenting with its custom colors . I was bored of Digg 3 . I wonder when wordpress will release some more free themes .

AM i excited 😀 ??? . I wonder why I/we are so much obsessed with stats . I have always loved following stats in cricket too. I have once mentioned it already that i used to pray that sachin gets to that hundred mark just to add one more to his hundred’s tally never bothering so much even if india loses that game 😛 . Silly me :mrgreen: .. CANT help it really !!! 😦

Special credits to google and to other numerous search engines for showing the way to numerous information hungry souls .I am sure that most of them would have been disappointed after landing here lol . 😛 .

Cant get a better chance to show off my blog stats  !!!! 😛 

Following the stats has its own share of enjoyment .There have been a no of instances when i had got visitors through hilarious searches like – no 2 , what ur name is , sexy hacker 😛  , funny trauma …CAN you believe it ???  ROFL… Have u ever checked ur spam section . Those are just impossible :d Some  are like

I can find the prayer I want. I thank God for this website  .

Divers thanks for the advice specified on a locality. With questions I shall oration to the administrator on a soap. (now what does the commenter wants??? :O

ORKUT,hacking ,Funny pictures ,Age of empires , harry potter  has brought me most of the hits 🙂 . And yeah CRICKET too which once upon a time used to be my favourite thing to post.now I am refraining myself till india does something great in srilanka ,chances of which are pretty thin 😦 .

i had started blogging last year mid june. Memories are still fresh like it happened just yesterday . I saw a link on my seniors orkut profile and something told me that i should click it ..I opened it and found an interesting piece of write up , creative and engrossing  . I wanted to try my hand on it the very next minute. I had no idea what was blogging .Infact his blog was  the first one i ever read. I knew i suck at writing . MY school English marks were proof  of that so  I doubted if anyone would ever read the gibberish posts i might end up posting.Not influenced by my apprehensions i got a free blog for myself . All i needed that was to kill time. 😉 during those days .

One year later now i realise that this has been one of the best decisions i have made in my life  and quickest one too 😛 . I have really enjoyed this one year in wordpress.(Only thing i hate about wordpress is that the themes are not that great  and are very few 😦 ) . Blogging has become a part of my life now and i am glad to say that it has much more importance than what i gave once to orkut 😛 . The meaning of the term blogging has changed for me with time after seeing many bloggers . I am glad that i am getting some regular readers nowadyas which is best part of this .A big thanks to all my regular readers and to all the unknown readers too… ;P . There’s no way i can express my gratitude here . Perhaps u can tell me if i can !! 😛

umm…by the way any suggestions for improving my blog are heartly welcome …any changes u would like ….anything from header image to content .Anything that can be better for this blog would be appreciated .

 

 

makes any sense !!! ;P
makes any sense ?? ;P

Grrrrrrrr……


Well, its almost 2:30 am now and i am yet to hit my bed. Not that i normally follow “early to rise early to bed makes u healthy wealthy and wise” but yeah i try to close my eyes atleast by 1 but wordpress woudn’t allow me to 😦

If u are one of those rare regular readers of  this blog  u could have observed a change in my blog ‘s look.YES,i have changed my theme from  PRESS ROW to DIGG 3 column and believe me with these many widgets in my sidebar it was an arduous job for me to shift it from a 2column one to 3 column one . QUITE recently wordpress changed its admin bar style and with that they have complicated the themes section totally .Earlier u just need to drag and drop the widgets from one sidebar to other but now its all not so simple .When i changed my theme all the widgets got transferred to my left sidebar and there was nothing in my second sidebar except the default calender and blogroll.I Tried to shift them directly but there was no way to do so.It took me almost one and a half hours to surrender before such a user friendly theme 😡 . THen finally i just used a fresh text box and copied my code from the widget that was in my first side bar  and pasted it.THen added that text box to my secinbd sidebar .Thats bloody long process .I still havn’t figured out a simpler process for it  😦 .Anyways i have decided to leave it like that unless  i find an easy way .

I was tired already and i needed to change my header too as i got bored of my previous header .Well it took another 1 hour for me to make this header which u can see .ust above this post .I thought of adding some calvin and hobbes pics to the header when i came across some really cool animated cartoons of calvin through google 😛 .I left my header unfinished,uploaded it and started reading calvin and hobbes comics .Wonderfull arn’t they. ?? U just dont get bored of it. Beleive me i have read the whole series twice 😀 and still it looks new everytime i open a strip from it .

Here are the few animated ones which i liked very much….

OK guys its already 330 .I am off to sleep now…see ya later …

and yeah if anybody know how to shift the widgets from my left sidebar to right sidebar please let me know after all this post was meant for that 😛 ..
