Story of a lost journalist

February 26, 2009

3 today

Filed under: Personal — Cris @ 23:42

Today is February 26th. A PG Wodehouse character if present would have found nothing wrong with the statement. “That’s nice”, he would have said “always liked it when its February em 26 did you say?”

But alas Wodehouse characters are not so much around as they used to be so all I can see as reply is “So? What if its 26th?” 

Explanations, that’s what is wrong with this world – always demanding explanations. Forget that I get no thanks for giving this piece of information entirely voluntarily with no outside pressure. But cant a person say its 26th of Feb and let it pass as an everyday statement? 

But no sweat. Today I have an explanation. A real solid one. Exactly 3 years ago, leave the calculations to me – I will tell you – it would be again another Feb 26th –ah isn’t that nice to say it – oh but the year was different – 2006 to be precise. So where was I? Oh yeah 3 years ago. Something terrifically important happened that day. 

Ok I am getting bored with the will-bore-you-with-long-story game. So let me welcome everyone to celebrate my third anniversary! I mean my blog’s! I wouldn’t have thought about it unless there was occasion for me to look up my blog today. That was fast – 3 years! 

A bit of history – My friend Q had insisted that I start a blog (my guess is he got tired of my huge emails on bench-days and wanted to divert it to a different direction!). I did. Then he said “Big deal! I bet you wont take it to ten entries!”

“I so would!” I said. To admit, I should have easily dropped the whole idea unless I had this pressure of proving a point that I don’t always start things and leave it halfway behind. So thank you dear Q its because of you Cris’s World still lives!



  1. Whoa! Q got it wrong, thats for sure(about not makin it to more than 10 entries). Happy Anniversary Sweetie! U keep doin what u do. Its awesome! We(fellow bloggers) love what u do!

  7. @MRose, actually I suspect its a trick Q played to get me writing. Or I should have left it long ago! And thanks dear, thats a really nice thing to say 🙂

    @mathew, my blog does not enjoy birthday celebrations. She likes to forget about the day so she could pretend to remain 2 😀

    @VK, Cris’s world takes that as an insult! She says – just for that she will never go to school!

    @Dhan, thanks dear!I sure will when there is one!

    @KAvi, fantasticand? Ah brain worked – its 2 words! Fantastic and! (I really didnt make this up as a joke if it sounds like an attempt – I actually tried fantasticand at before brain decided to work!). Thanks a lot pal! 🙂
