and this is my 100th post.
It has really been a remarkable day for me, dah-lings. So many simply amazing things happened today. And then I came back and discovered that this would be my 100th post. Life has a funny way of making small, minuscule things just..fall into place. I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't smiling right now.
Let's start right at the beginning..There's Ping! and there's Perplexed, and they blog, and I read, and I've been reading, and at several points I remember thinking, "Man! We should meet up!".
It was nothing like I expected it to be like, but that doesn't take away from the fact that it was awesome. You see, I totally dig meeting new people, and I'd love to have a job someday that involved JUST that, but I'm back to digressing, so the point is that I was really looking forward to this. I told Mom, who didn't believe that I was going to be meeting two GIRL bloggers. I know, right? You just have to read their blogs to believe that they are girls, Mom!
So we initially planned to meet at Barista, then switched to Java city because it was too hot to sit outdoors and Java city has the A.C. I wouldn't know how hot it was, because I was late..as usual. Punnu thinks it's a disease that I will never recover from. Ah, what do you know...Punnu is right.
My first glimpse of them (ugh this sounds like some cheesy love story) was of two very tired people dying for some cool air. Perplexed looked nothing like her display picture (which, as I grew to understand, is a very smart thing to do.) It went really well, actually. She was friendly (and god knows I love friendly folk) and obviously smart, and really sweet. She also doesn't scare easy, given that she didn't pick up her (nice pink) heels (or flats) and run once we started truly being ourselves. Thanks for that, Perplexed!
I know ping from before, and I think I should do some marketing for her, too. So here goes...she is..wait for it...awesome.
(I think that's all she needs. She's happy now.)
Isn't it amazing, how I met a (almost) complete stranger (via blogging) on the day I write my Hundredth Blog post? We ate some pizza, had coffee (and even got a free pizza) and played some guitar hero, and finally, caught up with ADT and watched Little Zizou, which, by the way, I totally recommend for de-stressing. Nice, cute movie. I would put up a movie review, but that's more perplexed's thing, so I'm going to leave that to her.
(Perplexed, after all this, you'd better do some marketing for me, too. Otherwise I shall be oh-so-tempted to take off this post and I don't want to!)
So..a fun day! I've met people after I've read their writing before, and I've got to tell you..they almost never match with what you think they will be like. It's an amazing thing, meeting the person behind all those words and sentences. Some people say that meeting the writer really takes away from the hidden personality essence of the writing, but I think it only adds to it. I think of people as having two personalities..a writing one, and a speaking one. And sometimes they merge, sometimes they diverge. Either way, it's a neat way to know a person better.
It also turns out that we knew someone she knew..it's a small world after all, people! So, so small, that you cannot believe it. The world will show you just how small, sometime.
Oh, and..the movie had some stuff about blogging in it. I'm bordering on superstitious, but I love how everything came together today, making for yet another amazing sunday after Aero India 09. Oh, and the sunday of my trip to ThePlace. Every day on that trip was amazing. But oh, about the trip, I can go on and on and on.
But, ladies and gentlemen and creatures of all ages, that's reserved for another post, post the 100th post, sometime.
Until then, Good night! And meet someone new. I highly recommend it.
