For six months now my explanation for not being a page 3 star on a mission to redecorate the town in vivid shades of scarlet has been as follows; "Oh, I don't have a life. I have a blog."
Normally this is muttered in the grouchiest of tones to my happening friend who leads a social life that would *almost* put Paris Hilton to shame.

Occasionally though when I'm out of witty things to say...and yes, before some well-meaning commenter points it out, I know I generally don't have witty things to say...the above line changes into :
"Oh, but I don't have a sense of humour, I have a blog."

Over the months enough blank stares of incomprehension have however forced me into the realization that this line is not only not-funny but also grammatically incoherent.
Of course, as people have noted and commented on, often and again, grammar and coherence have never been prerequisites
on my blog.
In case you were wondering, now of course, I don't even have a blog. I have exams.

gah! sadistic beasts who run my university...die all of you. Die!!!

post blog script : for those who have yet to learn to read between the lines and discover meaning in the little white spaces where there actually is nothing written, what this whole post translates into is exam was so bad!!!!!

post blog script thought : and my anonymous friend who said and I quote, "if you temme tmorro that ur gonna flunk... ill give you...." *umm...never mind the rest of the sentence*....I'm not gonna flunk!! Get scrapings from the bottom of the barrel of marks, yes but flunk, no!

well congrats u r not flunking!!! and get over it, i would have thought by now, most people would be used to bad exams once in a while!!!
and as some people pointed out "intelligently" recently, with my posting frequency, I dont have exams AND i dont have a blog

allow me my sob story. I HAVE TWO F****** EXAMS TOMORROW (a saturday, please note) AND I REALISE NOW THAT I DO NOT HAVE MOST OF THE TEXTS! enough said.

actually, no. since the lovely lady is a fellow judean, let me also add that the exams are for ND and ADG, respectively. why don't i just jump out of that freaking (see? i CAN speak proper, non-abusive english) window.

overflowing with the milk of emphatising sympathy,
me, dammit, ME!

you cannot even begin to imagine how bad my exams have been. having withdrawal symptoms just when you are trying desperately to assure yourself that you must study is not the way to healthy exam-writing, let me assure you.

and the worst thing is, i dont even remember what in dear Gawd's name I have written down on the pages... the memories surface in sleep, and I am left with a real bad case of insomnia... Moreover, I forgot to refer to darling willy sexpeer in my arnold answer today. And I have 2 more exams that are exacting revenge on my senses, and making me write in this blog instead of studying my arse(Please note, this is a medieval curse, so if you want to pull out some stumps, go beat Chaucer up)off.

Lastly, a thought on the general matter of the blog concerned: exam was so bad!!!!!

shobar exam baaje hoyechhe. you should see my report card that was handed to me forcefully a couple of days back (generally i tend to avoid receiving it). one of these days when i'm very jobless, i'll type it out and post on the blog.

blood is red. sky is blue. tragedies are sad. exams are bad. all inevitable truths of life, dearie... all inevitable truths of life.

this is a scared first year asking a very important question to the seniors "pursuing a masters".. Precisely WHAT happens if u flunk in one of the core papers in ur very first sem??....i need some reassurances desperately and fast...

p.s. well...okay....if someone manages NOT to flunk but to barely pass, what happens then?? r u in all the prof's black book for the rest of ur tenure??

ah best of luck babel...exams are all less relevant and weighty in retrospect, so I can be relatively calm about all of this for you (given my last exam is in such distant memory- who Iam I kidding- I studied so little I dont remember what my last paper was!)

Hope all of you have a merry time.

lance : hmm, intelligent of them to notice :D

rimi : sympathetic empathetic'll be fine girl :)

ibboss : chithhir uttor na pathale prochondyo maar khabi, but yeah exam time is universal sympathy time.

dd : happy you!

ron : you may be dazed from overwork but even in my dazed-from-not-studying state I can find a wealth of wisdom in that leetle comment :D

dee : your bangla figuring is fine honey but the way eggjams are going my masters may well become the pursuit of an elusive unattainable of sorts :D

krishanu : I am all hugs and poor dear you.

teleute : bechhara...but I'm sure you'll do fine, you be brilliant anyway :)

panu : comment noted, you're right of course but the thought that we're all generally in the same boat doesn't make any of us individually feel better :S

mandy : dear can I differ on one trivial point? I just gave an exam on Sophoclean tragedy and I will be irritating aantel here and assure you that incredible as it may sound it's true; tragedies are not eggjactly sad! That done, if you're ever that jobless don't put yourself through such trauma, buzz me and we'll find you something better to do :D

preronadi : did not delete comment too, you've been leaving comments meant for me on other people's blogs and then pretending you've been leaving comments for me...harrumph!! Have mailed though :)

"sen"sational : Firstly if you manage to flunk they'll probably give you an award; that is, if you are who I think you are then you be intelligent child with no reason to "flunk". But yeah, if the not-having-studied part is going to get you bad results, hmm...silent contemplation on the part of serious senior...honey, chill! Results actually don't matter in most profs assessment of you; I have seen class toppers who are actively disliked by some profs :D

vague : *sigh* the way you generally sigh over my smoky moments I am now sighing over your non-examinated life :D

satchisgod : oy! wanting to kill them is *not* being "sadistic" I'd have you know...if I was feeling sadistic I'd make them watch govinda and karishma kapoor dancing to Aa Aa Ee, Ee Ee Oo in an endless loop!!

shobhik : merry? most certainly...HO HO HO *ahem*!!

m(tread softly upon) : aww, you totally sweet person, I'm all cheery now :D

casablanca : well I really like the fact that you dropped by and commenting...I shall try do more funny rants if you keep coming :D
