Just a second.....anniversary special

All this while, there's been reason and no rhyme
And to the rhymester within, thats been a crime
So he thought, what better way to celebrate a blog birthday
than rhyming about all the guys he's met on the way....
For all who think he's better off keeping mum
This is nothing, the verse is yet to come....


Aqua wants us to remember
that we have dreams in December ...


Here's where we get elixir, but sadly, only a drop,
coz as the line goes,'once you start, you can't stop'


then there's the apple of newton's eye
ebony or ivory, wonder which is her favourite dye


The bad man talking calls himself stone,
But his notes to self always have a good tone..


and though this one advertises herself as a 'solitary cynic'
she is an integral part of the AA clique...


Vanilla writes on chocoalate cake,
dilse bolo, a better combination, could anyone make?


Until a jolt of reality, a potpourri of thoughts she used to fill,
pallavi's the name, and the blog that rocks is called jilmil...


Unless you have gone totally blind
a million light bulbs should help read the mind...


For those who think eschewing obfuscation wouldn't do
Harneet has random ruminations too...


Arunima has titled her blog "Silent Eloquence"
and for once, she makes a a lot of sense


Just a workshop?, nope, its not so simple,
coz its owned by none other than the devil...


And when you're always sanguine,
Celeb(be)rating life has to be in!!


The view from the tower must be supreme,
but then, being rapunzel itself is such a wonderful dream....


This one calls himself no hair brain
and his ruminations are far from insane...


From the oaf to pleo, he has a split personality of sorts
blot of thoughts, thought of blots, he calls it 'bloughts'...


The Goan Sri Sri, white is one of his favourite hues
but he still calls his blog 'saltwater blues'.


Finding a vanilla field is easier than i thought
but i hope this stays, and no new beginnings are sought...


The spirituality and the name -blokesablogin
got me confused, thought it was yang, turned out to be yin...


Arvind Iyer is the 'lean dude with attitude'
hey, its trademarked, unauthorised use could get you sued...


A lot of ideas are forged by the ideasmith
and most of them are the kind you'll agree with..


Ashweeta has got herself some pages at typepad,
and here, even the PJs aren't that bad...


The crackpot calls her blog 'inkspillz'
and though she's not a goddess now,it certainly sizzlez!!


The chipmonster speaks, but she blogz as coolcat,
but whatever the name, this one's cool and thats that!!


Whats an erratic soul that can dance?
That folks, is what we call an errantrance


The fish called goonda thinks she's a fishy fiend,
but after sad-turn kidnapped her, she's taken a long time to mend....


Austere she is, and a seeker too,
wonder what she seeks, or should it be who??


The Grinch may call it 'grinchscrumpit' or 'my dump pit',
but the content is as good as any floyd hit...


Nupur writes about what even she doesnt know,
but mate, she does have a template whiter than snow..


Chaotic daze and enthu knights,
gump does have some great insights


Garfy has got herself a diary
and her antics are anything but dreary...


Amidst all the middle east's troubles
ashi sips coffee and continues her virtual scribbles..


Kraz calls his place wrecktangle
and to every tale, he adds a unique angle...


Pompy's blog is "off the cuff"

but you wouldnt realise, judging from the stuff


Imagine a blog by satchit haridas,
actually dont, he already has....


Crabbie likes to call it goofiness personified
but pretty soon it could become a classic food guide :)


one of the best templates you can find - thats "pradeeps's mindspace"
he posts every bluemoon, and in spite of my taunts, he wont mend his ways!!


Once she used to be a bug, she is now an angel with wings
and from budhhism to winterwear, she can write on a zillion things!!


He's the blogger who whacks the talk,
but when he gets verse, i go "what the f***"!!


There's someone who goes by the name of J
she has a warped mind, and thats all she'll say..:)


Anubhas world has a lot of scribblings
and an attitude, among other things...


And from the days of rediff, i've been getting some pearls of wisdom,
She's not on the list, but she's as good as they come..


The journey that began on a boring tuesday,
has continued for 2 years, to this day...
for better or verse, this one is for all the bloggers i know
and the ones i dont, but who are still part of the show...

Pleomorphous said...

Btw, you need to run the template by Firefox before you can say "done done". ;-)

He starts my day with his wacky blog,
Very ‘ happening’ is his web log
He makes me laugh, He makes make me cry
With his stories warm and comments wry


Witty, humorous, stories tall,
He is the bloggest of them all.

Antonio Hicks said...

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word poster, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
