Yeah baby, I’ll show u versatile! (Part-1)

I haven’t been posting anything lately. Frankly I was very low on motivation. Its month end, I’m low on cash and its not like this bloody blogs pays anything.
Right then, bam! I have recieved two awards in a week. Now that is all the motivation you ever need to get back to writing again. I used to look at those award badges on other’s sites with the most green eyed envy possible. So big thanks to my mates Alan and Sami for giving me the awards.
There is a one little thing though. The awards are called ‘The Versatile Award’. I took a look at all the posts in my blog. Nope, nothing versatile about them. Same style all over them. Erudite, deep thinking, thoughtful posts that people twice my age call ‘wise’ (No, I’m not a nerd). I almost feel guilty claiming the award.
So just to show that these wise gents were right in their decision, we are going ‘Off the mainstream‘ (Alan’s blog) to write something unusual in this post. ‘The embarrassment‘ (Sami’s blog) for me is bound to follow…
As per the rules, I have to give out 7 things about myself.
Here! Seven things you did not know about me –
1. I blog because I think this will be a good practice for the best seller novel that I will write one day. Right now I don’t even have a clue as to what it is going to be. But there is going to be a handsome casanova, a murder  and an awesome new technology  involved.
2. I am not regular at blogging or commenting because I’m juggling my work and studies. I am preparing for a dreaded exam for my higher studies and I can’t be more scared. A particular college has been the center of my thoughts for too long now. Time to make it mine. (No, I’m not a nerd)
3. I think I am on a singlehood inertia. And according to Newton’s law, we would need a fantabulously charming stud to change that. (Yeah, I said ‘intertia’ and ‘Newton’. But no, I’m not a nerd)
4. The inertia factor works for other parts of my life too I guess. Disturb me when I’m working and be ready to look at the deadliest sneer ever. Expect the same sneer if you try to pull me down from the dance floor during a party. (Okay I said ‘intertia’ twice. So?)
5. One regret – I’m not a trained/certified dancer. But I do have some years in my life to change that. Or we can always forge a certificate and dance our way around eh?
6. There are days when I wish I was back working in the laboratory (I am an engineer by qualification)(Ok that is lil nerdy..but..)..But then an advertising/events agency, where I work now, is just too much of a drug. Hard to count the number of celebs I have met in just past six months..Not to mention the awesome work, fun and parties..Life is good
7. The love of my life is – chicken. Cook it in any way – style, spices and quantity no bar. A plate of chicken in front of me, and I’m in heaven. (Such un-nerdy behaviour if you ask me)
Okay, done. Damn, I’m versatile! (Shh..let me live with it ok)
But a tough part is still remaining. I have to give this award away to 15 bloggers too. So over here you add a thrilling, chilling background music of your choice, hold your breath and await the second part of this post. Tick-tok-tick-tok.
Yours,
Not-nerdy-at-all!

About sayali611

Spent a lifetime building a wall around myself, only to realize that what remained inside was as hideous as anything I would protect myself from. This blog is my attempt to break free, one brick at a time, and to make sense of what was blocked out.

Posted on September 27, 2011, in Uncategorized. Bookmark the permalink. 23 Comments.

  1. Dear Sayali, I hate to disagree with an award winner, but you are indeed versatile. Since all of your readers won’t see my post that nominated you and I’m sure you are too modest to quote me, I will put the blurb I wrote about you right here for all to read:

    “Finding 42 is a class act. Sayali’s blog is as close to true literature as you can find in a blog. It combines deep insight, with stunning photography with snippets of humor. It’s a little tough to describe with my limited abilities, so just subscribe to it and see for yourself.”

    In addition, quality blogging is not about quantity, it’s quality. I would rather someone post two great articles in a month than 30 days of drivel. So that’s it, everybody loves you. Deal with it!

    • *hugs* Thanks Alan. I think so too. But have to admit, posting this drivel was fun. Getting an award from you – even better. Thanks a lot for it 🙂
      And if I haven’t said it before, I really think I have, I love your blog.

  2. I like your approach to this award and I really like your approach to your blog. Keep it up when you can!

  3. I like your blog and its content, so keep writing, i may not comment but i’m here 🙂

    I have to disagree with Alan a little drivel is ok, after all he reads enough of mine 😆 well what do you expect from two Arsenal supporter’s.

  4. There are very few people who can put drivel into print and still make it read like drivel 😆

    • We all love you both for your those drivels. Be assured, as tempting as posting my lame attempts at good drivel is, I will give up after the next post 🙂
      And if you both ever think of giving it up, I’ll unsubscribe 😛
      Nah kidding. Gotta love the arsenal fans.

  5. Congrats! Maybe your blog will be your bestseller. You just need to get a handsome Casanova in your life (if you don’t already), a murder (hopefully no one you know), and a new technology (I think you should invent something cool and useful like houseplants that don’t need to be watered or buses that run on time).

    • Thanks 🙂
      Casanova, ah badly needed!
      I was thinking of a mechanical arm that stretches out of the car hood to push aside the people who cut inside my lane. Good? no? It is useful if you ask me

  6. Well, here’s the third award: http://highoncoffee.wordpress.com/2011/09/27/award-time/

    Your blog might not be versatile by your standards. But it’s always a treat to read – keep it that way..

  7. Engineers are nerds, dancers are not (certified or not). Therefore you are 50% nerd and 50% pole dancer! 😀

    Sorry – couldn’t resist!

  8. I love the recurring ‘I am not a nerd’ theme. Reminded me of a particular P.G Wodehouse novel.

  9. Congratulations! and best of luck with your exam goals too.

  10. Congratulations and I can’t wait to see your list 🙂

  11. “Not-nerdy-at-all”? You say that like it’s a bad thing!

  12. Hello there,
    I am pleased that you find the content in my blog to be valuable and I want to say “thank you” for offering me this award which I have already declined 3 other times. I’m a multi-tasker who works fulltime, and answers support forum questions, and blogs. I simply do not have the time to participate in memes, though I do wish those who do well. Thanks again and very best wishes with your blog.
