Mosaic

Spotted this tag somewhere, and was itching to do it, but unfortunately, when I tried answering the questions, I was stumped. Believe me, I spent 45 minutes just on the second question. It was like I being held at gunpoint, making a life or death decision! Oh and my new flickr obsession also slightly fueled this tag.





Anyway, here are the rules.

  1. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
  2. Using only the first page, pick an image.
  3. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd’s mosaic maker).

1. What is your first name?
Lemonade, to you.
2. What is your favorite food? Right now?
Pineapple Pizza. This is the answer I spent 45 minutes on. Pathetic, I know. (Not the pizza, but the fact that I love food so much that it was so hard for me to make a decision)
3. What high school did you go to?
Convent. I went to this convent in Chennai. Some of the best days of my life, yes, even with the obsessive compulsive white satin ribbon rule.
4. What is your favorite color?
Red. I think I've already mentioned this a couple hundred times here.
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
Wentworth Miller. Need I say more?
6. Favorite drink?
Definitely Lemon Tang. Its my lifeblood, this time of year.
7. Dream vacation?
Bora Bora, French Polynesia.
8. Favorite dessert?
Lemon Ice cream. If you think I'm joking, I'm not. If you're ever in Anna Nagar, go to Deli Fresh. Trust me, it'll be the best fifteen bucks you'll ever spend.
9. What do you want to be when you grow up?
Happy..hopefully.
10. What do you love most in life?
My family.
11. One Word to describe you.
Quirky. You see that, don't you?
12. Your flickr name.
Lemon Snap. Maybe its time I get over this lemon thing, no?

I'd take up this tag if I were you.

Its a nice way to spend 45 minutes pondering about your favorite food.

Smile

I'm in a weirdly happy mood. The kind that makes you smile for the tiniest things. The same kind where you're thankful for all the simple things in life.

Like old family photos.

Deliciously delightful french songs.

The joy of being able to do nothing all day.

That five minutes you believe in love after you watch a perfect chick flick.

The absence of the cell phone ringing.

That feeling when you realize that you already have the song that you've been frantically searching for on the internet for the past three days.

Licking chocolate off of your fingers.

Singing along loudly to cheesy old songs.
(Let me emphasize on the 'loudly' on that last sentence!)

Being able to put these feeling down.
(Not well, but at least I'll know that there were days like these when I'm down in the dumps!)


Anyway, I guess its just one of those days, or nights rather, considering that fact that its happens to be almost 4 in the morning!

To all you guys and to all the little things that make you smile. I know you know what I'm talking about.

Happy Friday!

You "actually" blog??

Let me tell you, hiding under a shell for ten days does absolutely nothing for your conscience. Your guilty conscience that is. Especially for a person like me, who gets itchy if she doesn't post on her blog for more than 5 days. But as per usual, procrastination still rates high on my set of daily activities, so its no wonder that I procrastinated getting out from under that shell.

So, here I am, not afraid anymore. The slew of people asking me if I "ACTUALLY" blog, made me go under the blankets and hide my face for fear that if I said yes, they'd all run and go find my blog and consequently read whatever I had managed to keep a secret for two years! Yes, sometimes, I actually am that self obsessed; thinking that people don't have lives and that all they'd want to do was come dig around the internet and find my blog. But then, at times like these I gradually get over myself , and realize that the world in fact does NOT revolve around me!

Anonymity is awesome! Did you know that? Especially in circumstances like these. Its gives you the freedom to say whatever you want, knowing that no one is going to judge you. And even if they do, who gives a shit, its not like they know who you are anyway.

But when those safe walls of anonymity are broken down, its like, there you are, in all your raw, messy, undignified glory for all the world to see. And no, you are not that in real life (Ok, maybe sometimes), rather you try not to be, that's why you keep a place like THIS for all your outbursts, rantings and other shenanigans. Come on, a girl has to vent! But now, when this somewhat sacred place is invaded, where exactly are you supposed to go??

Anyway, I've decided that I can't be bothered anymore. If people I know find this space, let them! They can use the material on this page as fodder for gossip, they can form opinions, they can change opinions and they can judge all they want. I'm done hiding beneath that shell...and you know what..

It feels great to be back.

The Blogger Part..Finally!!

Ok, first off, all those who attended the meet, my apologies for making you sit through that painful 1.2 minute supposed ‘welcome’ that I gave!

Anyway, back to the beginning of the story. After an enormous fight with my mother about her punctuality issues, I stormed out of the house, tear streaked face and all, car keys in hand, determined to get to T.nagar in 15 minutes flat.

I made it in about 24 minutes. (With a couple more to spare before the meet was scheduled to start.)

So I walk in, with a nervous smile on my face, my apprehension getting the best of me, find the first empty seat (which happened to be in the second row) and plonk myself down, waiting pretty impatiently to see a face that I could recognize. A couple of minutes pass, with me nervously looking around the room and vaguely smiling at people, who for the record were not smiling back at me! At this juncture, I have to confess that I'm an extremely shy person and find it very hard to go up to a person and introduce myself. Yes I have some confidence issues. Now, ssh, don't tell anyone that!

Prayers answered, Anju walks in, and daintily perches her pretty little self right in front of me. I find a friend in her and am thankfully kept company until the meet officially started.

A PowerPoint presentation with the Indiblogger boys hilariously running up to the screen and covering the ‘Pune’ credit later, everyone began to loosen up. The 1 minute of fame round was pretty interesting with almost all the bloggers coming up and introducing themselves and their blogs. And by 1 minute, I mean 1 minute, since I was the official time keeper and all, now made famous by a very embarrassing picture in ‘The Hindu’!

We then had a break of about 30 minutes during which Anju, JollyRoger, Captain Jack sparrow, Bungi, Divia and me, laughed our asses off, for what I can’t seem to remember now! As JollyRoger said, a near riot was caused by the six of us!

After everyone had had their fill of the food and nearly not as much of the laughter, the ‘Do you know your readers’ round began, where, random comments (that I scrounged and picked from around the net) were read out and the owner of the blog from where the comment was taken had to stand up and do a lil jig. There was then a play by ‘The Rebelz’, a presentation on mobile blogging by 'The Pseudonym' and another presentation on Windows Live writer by Sandhya Rajan.

The meeting wrapped up with everyone greedily grabbing at the “WE BLOG, THEREFORE WE ARE’ Indiblogger t-shirts. Thanks you guys and Renie (you know for what..he he)

Oh crap, forgot to mention that i was made to do the Indiblogger jig too, since i was the one who collected the comments (Anju, I’m gonna get you for this!) which was not a good idea because, I can safely say that i am in the only person in the world whose two left do not point to the left, but point all the way to the back. Seriously, I suck at dancing. So, any slight dance move, or any move for that matter, gets killed even before I attempt to do it!

All in all, Sunday was the most fun I’d had in a long, long time considering the fact that I’d been stuck at home WITH the chicken pox and WITHOUT the internet for the past three weeks!!

It was great seeing so many bloggers all in one place and that too at the newly proclaimed blogging capital of India. I met some awesome people and made some great friends, (you know who you are!) What else could you ask for, seriously!

Again, I’d like to thank all you guys at Indiblogger and all the bloggers who turned up. It was great fun!

So Renie, when's the next one happening??


PS: Oh and I was on NDTV, making all kinds of faces. To say that it was embarrassing, is a gross understatement people!!

Oh and here are a few Pictures!!
