Second Debut...

I just realised two things

1. Humanity has not improved in the last 42 days.
2. I am not going to become a millionaire by writing.

Why such sweeping statements all of a sudden? I just found out that my profile has only 32 views.. (did you fall fo r the cheap trick? If not, do go back 17 words and fall)...

Such sweeping statements necessitate sweeping actions.. Here is what i plan to do
1. Change the template of my blog.. (marketing funda)
2. Give a title to the blog that makes it sound like you are poised for a great comeback.
3. Do some cheap tricks...
a- I plan to visit as many famous bloggers as i possibly can before my project manager kicks my ass, and comment on their blogs, thereby leaving a link to my blog (i am a genius)
b- This method will take advantage of the quintessential human emotion - diplomacy... If i give links to other people's blogs, they are bound to give links to mine.
c- Send junk mails to everybody, that says something like this:

I've been using Gmail and thought you might like to try it out. Here's
an invitation to create an account.

Deepika has invited you to open a free Google Gmail account. The
invitation will expire in three weeks and can only be used to set up one

To accept this invitation and register for your account, click here

Using a girl's name makes it twice as easy to fool people....

I dont expect many people to fall for this one.. If you have, congrats! u deserve an applause...

And to top it all, I have decided to blog everyday, plan to give RSS feed, and start a fan club for myself. Am looking out for a secretary.... Any takers?

Goodbye oh 32-profile-viewed loser... Welcome to the most shameless campaigner history ahs ever witnessed.

Shakila for olympic torch....

Controversy? There is no controversy if you take it in the spirit of olympics.. So say some of the torch bearers... and if bipasha basu can carry the torch, so can shakila... afterall, keralites have contriburted a lot to indian sports... and the best way to acknowledge it is to give the torch to the most famous malayali...

my vote goes to shakila...

i found a great remedy to boredom... the last time i was bored, i declared that i am in the throes of existential angst... boy, and life became interesting...

and now that i am smitten with the concpet of existential angst, i googled to make myself fit enough to be angst-ed. and this is the list of symptoms that i am supposed to sport

* You light scented candles
Cant understand why... bought them anyway...

* You sit alone in a small room and read
Nothing new, i do it all the time... but am u supposed to read with the scented candles? the manual is ambiguous....

* You feel as though you are carrying a great weight
Considering the average IQ of the world at large, and of the people who listen to radio city in particular, i do feel that i carry a great weight!

* You consume an entire bottle of laxatives
Have asked nilu for expert guidance on laxatives.

You can smell "death"

* Your underwear is dark colored
Dont remember, and i cant look down and verify it in office.

* You spend time in the woods, doing natural things
Went on a trip to kerala to make sure that i get this symptom right.

* You feel a deep sense of dread within your bowels
Ya....i feel that every morning. the laxative thing might make it more dreadful...

* Your existence centers around a dark hole
No comments....

* You are suffering
Read my earlier blogs for confirmation.

* Your room reeks of decay

* When you look in the bathroom mirror, you see Sarte's face
does sartre look so bad? poor guy!

* You want to flush everything away
more of a compulsion than a want...

Having meticulously kept up all the symptoms, i was about to exclaim, when i realised that EA-ed ppl arent supposed to be happy...boy, this death thing sure stinks....

Googled more and found out the seven dimensions of fear that are supposed to grip me:

A. Exaggerated Fears.
B. Phantom Fears.
C. Plain, Ordinary, Everyday Anxiety.
D. When Normal Securities Disappear.
E. Fear of the Future.
F. Fear of the 'Nothing'.
G. Ontological Anxiety.

Interesting indeed. does this sartre guy sport a frenchie, by any chance?

Who are my fellow sufferers? google is god!

A. Sartre (obvi, you say?)
B. Hitler
C. Batman (Wow)
D. Lewis Carrol

More to follow on my EA Series..
PS: defying all odds, i found out that my underwear is indeed dark coloured.
And, existential angst also goes by the name of Karmic Tithes . am in love with this concept!
