Apologies

A hundred thousand apologies and more to you, Gentle Reader. I have been upto my nostrils in work this semester, what with the daily exam series conducted by our seniors, then our technical festival Pragyan, our department's technical symposium immediately after that and the cycle tests, which got over only yesterday. Now, I can breathe. I haven't written anything new after Yoga, and I shall start right after I post this. I shall probably post over the weekend. However, if some unforeseen calamity does strike me down , you lovely people will please kindly adjust, right?

How presumptuous of me, isn't it, to assume that you guys will be affected by my not posting? But I will, anyway, for it is good for my ego. ;)

Regarding the previous two posts, I was surprised by the response. It was a parody, you know, of all the tragic/melancholy love stories I've read/listened/been subjected to. And I was surprised (actually, devastated) that nobody commented on the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. reference in Memoirs-II. I do enjoy Maths a lot, and yes, I would like to do something related to Maths in the future. But a lot of it was exaggeration; the story required it, you know. But it was great fun writing it, and that, I suppose, in the final analysis, is all that matters.

At 4:32 PM, Blogger snickersnee said...

was wondering where you'd gone off to.

Anyway, what, which reference to F.R.I.E.N.D.S did I miss???

I wanted to post a nice touchy-feely comment on your previous post, but then, I saw how much I'd slackened over the past year; I felt so bad and kinda pissed that reading your blog reminded me of it. Therefore, no comment by moi there.

Now, you didn't ask me did you? Oh, well.

Lookin fwd to your next post, oh Gentle blogger!

Hey Monk! Long time no see and it's all my fault. I'm really sorry I dropped the ball wayyyyy back in December, but if you could find it in your heart to forgive, we can resume play. :)

I see you've been somewhat preoccupied yourself! Sometimes, you know, life just happens.

And yes, it's fine to assume that your readers will be affected by your absence. It's all a part of the ego-thang that blogging necessitates.

Good to see you again!

Your last post on mathematics and sciences was one of the best I have come across in six months of blogging. "Yeh dil maange more". I am not complaining if you are on an ego trip.

@camphor: I beg to differ,miss...me no take chances...
@Quincy: Pragyan was pretty good, I guess...hardly got time to look around, me was running around too much for my event...
@the thing inside me: that's easy, it was this: I'm sorry, my love. But we were on a break.
@the Hag: 'course I forgive you...i've no right to talk myself, I haven't written anything much either....

What forced me to post a comment was the presence of another "Siri" around the block, albeit a male!
Sorry :)
I do read your blogs Monk and find them phasinating.

 
At 4:14 AM, Blogger Siri said...

hmm,....now was that a goof up or what...Sorry Siri...i meant to say also a female....
sometimes you wonder how your brain can instruct totally contrary to your thoughts!
@monk - forgive me for hogging ur blog ;)

Supplementing your ego,

I don't realy intend to inflate your ego any more than it already seems to be [:D] but I did come over whenever I was online to check if you'd posted something new at last or not. Well now you have! I guess I really don't have anyting else to say!!
