Writer's block

Yet again , I have a writer's block .....

I had a lotta ideas yesterday night when i went to bed , but this morning , they are all gone - gone with a puff of the wind ....

maybe , i'll jot down some random thoughts

  • Went for a 45 min walk yesterday , and a 30 min walk today - it made my day
  • Saw the sea when i went for lunch today
  • Fed an elephant 2 apples yesterday

If you are wondering about the elephant, well , there was this company that was inaugurated yesterday , and the staff brought 2 elephants for the ceremony .... and when i saw them on my way to office, was tempted to stop

  • Went for a drive at 7:00 pm last night .... it relieved me of my bad day
  • fit into a dress i couldnt fit into for last 1 yr
  • had 5 pieces of great homemade chocolate cake

And finally,

  • what stresses me most right now is a fear of my comp being attacked by the blackworm virus


DS said...

BTW, I wish i lived near a beach...lucky u.

Hmm.. blog-block, a common curse of blog-writers. To write or not to write. And to write what?

Anyways, I got to your blog from silverine's blog. Can you tell me which font have you used for your weird post?

P.S. Please note that I haven't made any jokes about the chocolate cake.

P.P.S. Really, all these people before me, I could not find anything original at short notice about the chocolate cake. ;)

>|' ; '| said...

the sea is soothing..i was at the vizhinjam pier yesterday...

Nitika said...

not surprised with elephant coz elephant is everywhere in ma subject and ma excursion..huh..mez fed up with wild

grt u had a rocking day.....eating chocolate and loosing

take care

Jackal said...

fed 2 apples to the elephant.....n he turned arnd n said deeps 2 se kya hoga : )........... u saying u have lost wt.......byee tcc dont worry.....

Sujit said...

so, you walking daily?.. you stay near beach?? Its nice being with animals.. elephant!! little scary more fun :)..

drive...!! yeah it relieves you a lot.. but dont think while driving don't know where you may land up! :) just be careful!

Fit into the dress.. may be that you have lost weight!!.. which is good :) or after trying past one year.. the dress might have elogated and you fit in!!..
Ah!.. likes cakes but haven't ate homemade..
Virus, back up your data!!.. most important

Sudarshan said...

That's a pretty nice post lol..down to earth, frank and simple!!By the way, its weird to get elephants for opening an office or whatever..I feel such people who treat animals the way they want should be punished lol Chocolate cake..hmm..sounds yummy!! That worm which is out there right now is a real headache, so remember so change your date to anything other than the third on the midnight of the second,every month!! Have fun and enjoy your weekend:-)

Lost in trance... said...

homemade chocs remind me of ooty!

n btw, i can sendyu the balckworm removal thingy ifyu ever needed it!

AnonymousBlogger said...

# Saw the sea when i went for lunch today
# Fed an elephant 2 apples yesterday

That's great. Those are some of those things that someone like me likely won't get to experience(except the sea one I guess).

A big reason I enjoy your blog (and Sudeep's and Vaibhav's blogs too), is that I get an sense of what life is like in a completely different culture.

The differences are always interesting, but the similarities are what strike me the most.

Known Stranger said...

this time dont ask with whom i had sex as you asked earlier with whom i had love- just kidding

Sudeep said...

Try keeping a blank notepad under ur pillow while u sleep... the ideas will flow into it :P

I was not wondering 'bout the elephant... but juss 2 apples for a huge elephant.. wht will u feed a human then??

n there goes my chocolate cake again.. thts 2nd time in a row.. i m warning u now otheriwse i m sending a virus to ur mail id

silverine said...

Keep walking and then you will be able to have your chocolate and eat it too :) Black worm turned out to be a damp squib !

ashok said...

first time here..nice blog...
hope u have such eventful
days eveyday:-)

vaibhav said...

fit into a dress i couldnt fit into for last 1 yr Hmm... somebody's working out! :)

And I don't think there's anything such as 'Writer's block' - I being a writer myself have experienced what many call Writers block - but as they say it's just an excuse for being lazy! :)

Art said...

hmm happens happens... but when I get ideas... I am too lazy to write :)

tcr_79 said...

Hmm... Looks like good writers like you also can get afflicted with this problem :)

I thought it was only a problem for beginners like me..:)

Jigal.. said...



Yaar congr8s for loosing weight... :P

Take Care.

MS said...

silverine said...

Damp Squib because it did not do the damage it was feared it would do!

Abdulla syed said...

Writers blog means you are vivid dreamer. Keep dreaming keep forgetting, and then someday you will find that the thougts are all around. That is a pure pleasure.

I invite you onto my blog, for i feel i just won my bout with the writes block.

Dewdrop said...

Walks are great stress relievers, anytime durung the day be it brisk or slow. You fit into an old dress and then ate 5 pcs of choc cake...nice celebration :)

vaibhav said...

Yes, things do come easily even when you r stressed... u can write pretty morbid things in 'depressed' times too! :)

Sudeep said...

Karela juice... wht if i say i luv tht :))

n this time i did something on my blog tht u will definitely give me a cake

tcr_79 said...

Well lets not debate... I will have the last say

You definitely are a good writer because you are a honest writer... you express yourself well through words and truthfully and most importantly you keep it simple

Trust me - you write well - atleast lot of people who read your blogs think so.

So keep up the good work

silverine said...

You are tagged!

AnonymousBlogger said...

Why won't u be able to see the sea and all ? u have PEI there , na ? as well as Cape Breton ?

True, but the nearest ocean is a couple hours away by plane. It's just not the same as being able to step outside and see it right there in front of you.

Black Worm said...

Chinese proverb: Give an elephant 2 apples and you feed him for a day. Teach an elephant to steal apples
and you feed him for a lifetime :)

Krish said...

Good... walking very good for health of mind body and spirit...

//what stresses me most right now is a fear of my comp being attacked by the blackworm virus//
That wud be last thing to put me under stress me... :)

Happy V-DAY Deeps... wat spl 2day ;)


Shriedhar said...

Hey deepa,

happy v-day !!!

vaibhav said...

Hey Deepa... voting is absolutely necessary yaar. U can't just say that 'all politicians are bad' so I won't vote for anyone.. that's ridiculous.

To make it sound simple, you've seen Rang de basanti, right... the 'message' there was if you want to change ..dont crib.. but be a part of it and then change! :)

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

2 tcr_79 :
HEck !!! Why am i debating ???? i should be happy with the compliments ....
thank u dear :)

2 AB :
yeah ... u r right ... my office is 3 Km away from the sea , and house abt 30 Km away

2 blackworm :
Hey .. Welcome to you ...
but if u r a blackworm .. then u aint welcome ...
Poor PJ .. i know !!!
Thatz a nice saying .. but who wants to teach an elephant to steal ????

2 Krish :
Why not ?

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

2 Susubala :
Thanx :)
And i have fed elephants in coorg too :)

2 Sujit :

2 Puneet :
Yeah , i have entered the 1st 6 on my list ... still have to finish the remaining..... that is why blogrolling is not yet up ... hope to do it soon.

2 rebel_on_loose :
Same to you ... hope u had a great time

2 Amutha :
SAme to u dearie

2 Z000nie :
Arrey ... the day has already gone by .. letz make it next year .. okie ?

Arz000n said...

Will do!

By that time I think I will come up with new template of ma own for ma blog :D

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

2 vishnu :
nothing special at all ....
and for u ?

2 sreedhar :
Same to you

2 vaibhav :
no re .... all that - in yuva and RDB - is just filmy and ok from a bookish point of view ... but i really have lost hopes in everything .... everyday , u see countless letters to the editors and all , but it makes no difference

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

2 z000nie ...

okie :))
dont forget my gift .. okie ?

vaibhav said...

Hey Deepa... you can't just brush it off by calling it 'filmi'! Why have such a a pessimistic view? If people like us, dont believe in changing things... then who will?

It's quite easy to talk like that sitting comfortably... but I guess, you haven't seen nothing yet! :-)

Sujit said...

Ah... so I found it!!.. finally. So, I can crack codes with clues..!!

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

2 Vaibhav ,

I have a pessismistic view coz i have seen it all shatter .... even small things like cutting a road .. all in all , i feel it is just not worth it

2 Sujit ,

vaibhav said...

'Cutting a road'??? Uh.. didn't get it!

Sudeep said...

lets wait for 1 yr n see wht comes first... karelas or choco cake.. :)

if u even think of karela.. Mr. teddy stands cancelled

Michelle said...

lol i so know how u feel...u hav so many ideas in da mrnin buh then later they juz vanish hehehe...!!

~*. D E E P A .* ~ said...

2 Vaibhav ,
By cutting a road , i mean : the govt just keeps digging up perfectly nice roads ... the dig it one day, tar it the next day , and again dif it up .... every govt promises better infrastructure and so on .... but it just gets worse.
and whats more , all our hard earned earnings go in for this ...
This , and more make u just wanna leave

2 Sudeep ,
I am waiting too :)

2 Michelle ,
Yes , i know :(

Arz000n said...

Yeah...I will not forget the gift :)

Btw, how big is this BLOCK...the writers block...coz its been a long time with any updates here...

so you betta remove this block thingy and stary blog-thingy... NOWWW!!


vaibhav said...

LO.. just wanna leave to where? Leave the country? Run away from the situation?
