I've been tagged!

Posted by Yashika Totlani Khanna on 4:55 AM in , ,
Ah people, I’ve been tagged by Priyanka (I’m working on the basic assumption that people in blogging circles know what ‘tagging’ means). Its an open tag so all those who wish to do it can go right ahead! There's an X before all the things I've done… and the other brackets are empty… so all you have to do is copy and paste the thing and edit the X's ...

So hold on tight, the roller-coaster ride begins now!

"Thanks all for bearing with my smart-ass jokes and comments." - i deserve that many times over. I read each n every entry n even reread some when they did not make any sense to me .. another thing that some still do not:p. Luckily i got to know the meaning of "tagging" only y'day or else i wud have come up with some really studpid comment n then made an ass of myself. Must mention some were witty, some interesting, some sppoky, some outrageous n some ....

u stupid dunderhead..! how dare you steal some of my jokes n jibes..!!!!!! plus u weren't actually suppposed to type smart-ass comments next 2 ezch thing , y'knw... ignorant..ignorant...!

@Arunabh: Yeah, I saw this coming! But cmmon man, its not like I've written it in French or German! Most of them were crystal clear... sure, others werent ;). So you were actually patient enough to read each and every entry?? Im surprised... I thought people would give up mid-way (it's so LONG, I wont blame them!)! Hehehehe. Now wonder what you would have written had you finished the last line... Anyway, I guess I'm done with tags! You keep visiting :)

@Exclusively_me: Priyanka, you read every entry too?? Man, you guys never fail to surprise me! Yeah, did borrow (and glorify!) a few of your jokes... so thank me for that! And girlie, im creative... hence the 'smart-ass comments'! The tag was BORING otherwise, I just tried to spruce things up! Hahaha. Now watch out for a dusshera post soon!

(x) posted a blog and forced others to comment...:) ;) :)

@Satyam: Cheers!

samhita says:

well your comments forced me to read it thru although was kind of contemplating after looking at the length of it ;)..
it was damn witty...more than the questions i enjoyed the thoughts...and i got reminded of my shoplifting not knowingly but by mistake ;)...

@Samhita: You shoplifted? Ha! Yeah yeah... unknowingly so! Anyway, thanks for dropping by. Thanks again for calling it 'witty'! Keep visiting!

not borrowed dear cos if you'd had borrowed it u wud hav asked me 1st ...plus there wasnt any compliment ...there was sarcasm dripping from every word of mine..!

(X) Forced to create a blogging identity to 'leave a comment this time around' :)
Well apart from establishing urself as the smart-ass chick :), this is quite an interesting post... My new word for the day: tagging...
Keep 'em blogs coming !! :)

@exclusively me: Keep visiting... and cribbing ;)

@by toutatis: Ashwin! You blog??? Surprise surprise! Me on my way to reading your blog... :)

Nah this identity is to read others' blogs and pass comments...Self-blog will take some time to materialize...:)

This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

@by toutatis: Yeah, I realised that yesterday when I tried opening your page :(
Anyway, put on your thinking cap soon... eager to see your style of writing (people say my articles sound as if they're straight out of some 'readers digest'!)! Cheers!

i think that part about whether you had a cruch on someone you met online has to be me....

by the way...you have NOT been there NEITHER have you done that....look at me for example...i have done most thinks in that list including jumping off a bridge and eating dog/cat food...arn't you jealous of me? well you should be....for i am cooler than thou...in fact i am coller than you can possibly comprehend!!!!


@Bodhisattva: You are SO predictable! I saw something like that coming, so now I curse you with the same ordeal I went through finishing that tag: YOU'RE TAGGED!

P.S. Nah, that internet crush wasnt you... Infact, I think the 'crush' already knows Im talking about him... and NOT you ;)! Get well soon, though!
