bye sob sob bye

A trip, for me.
Means shopping and packing and no time for the zillions
(ok its just 19) posts on my mind which I couldnt post.
Hmmm perhaps I better a write a reminder to write a post on Time Management.
Well it means a break for you too:)

But please please do come and check this blog, during the 2nd week of July
If you think you are likely to forget and that in this vast cosmos of blog world I am pretty insignificant,
and highly unlikely for you to remember the dates, well leave a note,
I will hunt you wherever you blog and pester you to read my blogs:)

But since I have a contract with few HR Vice Presidents (they were managers but after torturing oops exposing their employees to my blogs, to prevent net surfing, they have been promoted to Vice Presidents), and cant shut down the blog, I am leaving the links to some of my favourite posts.

Please read them one at a time. Dont forget to read the Health Warning mentioned in the blog description. For those who have become immune by my posts, click for the full blog posts list.

Before leaving found time to do this interview which appears in Triplex blog

I was wondering if there are other bloggers, who would like to be interviewed. If there are, do tell me more about you, your hobbies, your likes and dislikes, etc etc

XXX:- I’m very excited about my guest tonight. She is an Active blogger who has won the “Boring Blog” award, An Enemy of the Sleeping Pill companies and has changed quiet a few o3 bloggers. Her *latest* blog post is entitled, "Sob Bye Bye Sob."
She is aspiring to win an Oscar for blogging or was it Nobel Prize, I’m not sure, lets ask her personally, Let the madness begin, Please welcome: Wise Donkey.

[Standing Ovation, ]

Xxx:- How you are?

WD:- Fine thanks xxx though busy packing for my trip and as Joey says, How you doin?

Xxx:- I"ve been better, What happened was I had this thing called Gastro-enteritis which is a*wonderful* thing to have {in your stomach, yeah.} it's a very smelly disease, so my house is basically been quarantined off.

WD : Oh ! So you are interviewing me because you have nothing else to do. Anyway lets start with the questions.

Xxx:- err, I heard that you want to win an Oscar for blogging, is that true? Or was it a Grammy?

WD : It was Nobel for blogging (rolls eyes) How can one can get an Oscar by blogging? Hmmm is it possible that those in Hollywood read the blogs, and what if they decide to make a film based on my blogs. I better search for Jim Carey's email and ask him if he would like to play Aargh. Coming back to your question, well I am not an ambitious kind of girl, so I am not
going after the Grammy.

Xxx:- Do you go to a lot of parties? Do you, DOOOOOOOOO YOU?(Ross Style)

WD : Well I am eccentric like Phoebe, obsessive like Monica and conceited like Rachel, dumb like Joey, irritating like Chandler and sincere than Ross, so no I dont party.

Xxx:- You know what , there are so many of us who would love to sit at home and just blog away. Can you give us some tips on how we can sit at home blog and still have 3 meals a day? And looking at you, 3 very healthy meals.

WD: Convince your spouse that being a homemaker is a job.If that is tough, tell the spouse you are a budding writer and you are practising by blogging and if the spouse slogs and pays your bills, you will mention in all your book's foreword - Thanks to my loving family and my spouse xyz. Or convince your boss that you need to work from home and convince your spouse to do that job, while you blog. Or convince your boss you are a budding writer and will share the spotlight with boss after winning an Oscar by blogging.

Xxx:- There was a point in your blogging life where, you started calling yourself Wise Donkey? Can I ask you why?

WD : Generally people enter blog world through annon names and then tell about themselves. Unfortunately I wanted to Also brag about my published works to anyone who would listen to me. So started with real name. Then wanted to go incognito.I had seen Shrek at that time and liked the donkee in it. I also had created a blog by mistake Kick (Hey I didnt ask you to kick me, that was blog name. And kick stands for "the first expression of life"). Anyway when you have an unused blog kick and a fan of Shrek's donkee, what can I come up with. There is also a Chinese saying on wise is the person who knows, how little he knows. So its wise donkey. I am wise, when the donkee in myself I recognise.

WD:-xxx xxx wake up.

xxx:- Huh!!!! We’ll be right back with Wise Donkey, after these messages

{Commercial Break:-

Manno Bhabhi, Manno Bhabhi."

"Manno kahaan hai?"

"Arey baba aa rahi hoon, aa rahi hoon."

"Apni Seema ko dekhne ladka pahunchne wala hoga." "NRI hai."

"Uff India, very hot, very hot.... Sheesh, yeh country hai ki bhatti hai?"

'Manno Bhabhi'

"NRI matlab na raha Indian."

"No tea, no ghee, triangles lejao"

"Wah kya meethi zabaan hai."

"Hey hey no teeka shika boom boom."

"Beta yeh toh riwaaz hai."

"Sorry babes, hamm reeti riwaaz se allergy... hai."

"Oh na Chatterjee, na Bannerji yeh toh allergy hai." "Isey to desi chhaunk lagana... padega."

"Manno bhabhi, Manno bhabhi." "Yeh riwaaz achcha hai, yeh riwaaz I like

"Mehmano ko thanda pilana hai is ghar ka riwaaz, lekin app hai high class isliye aapke liye khaali glass”

Santa Claus !!!

"Arey Bhabhiji, yeh dekhiyega, arey hum to maan liye hain reeti riwaaz... poora total

"Toh yeh lee jiye poori bottle."

"Adi wah! ek dum lalan top, tana tan, tana tan."

'Manno bhabhi' "Dekhle jab bhi yeh kabootar bhadka, laga dena thande ka tadka."

"Ghar mein rakhiye thanda, matlab Coca-Cola)

xxx:-Hey everybody, we are back, and with me here is wise donkey.

Xxx:- You're writing a book? I understand? Or you're thinking about writing a book. Or a book was thinking of writing you. I always get mixed up.

WD : Well thats the nice thing about blogging. Once in a while, a blogger who thinks I am torturing other bloggers thinks, let me get this person off blogging, and says, why dont you write a book.
Write now, Opps right now, I am just into reading books. But oneday yes, I will write a book..I have a very original title and its going to be called "Kyunki writer bhi kabhi blogger thi" (Well after the book becomes famous, maybe someone would make it into a TV serial. And hey even Shahrukh
started with TV serials).

Xxx:- What do you have to say about all those bloggers who love you and those who don’t have the guts to say they like you?

WD : To those who love me, just because you love me doesnt mean, you shouldnt or cant criticise me. (And just because I criticise your posts, doesnt mean I dont love or care for you).
And to those who dont have the guts to say they like me, uh hmm errrrrr Aaaargh, guess I dont have the guts to say something to them either.

Xxx:- we don’t get to see much of you on o3 these days. How can you get
that Oscar, I’m sorry Nobel Prize if you don’t blog on o3.

WD : Well to be honest, I cant afford the net bills and the counsellor bills which comes when I blog full fledged in o3. And there is also a conspiracy by the pharma companies against me, since the demand for
sleeping pills has been reduced, due to many people reading my blogs, and they
try to make it tough for me to blog in O3.

Xxx:- So tell me apart from blogging, what does Gayathri Eswar do?

WD: Well I think about what to blog. Browse some sites or watch a bit of TV so that I can blog on something based on it. Occassionally I am a homemaker. But I am going to find out in this trip (note I am not calling it a vacation, since, blogging is my idea of vacation). There is supposed to
be life without blogs, and tommorrow I am likely to find out.

(music at the back ground) tanda tananan tanadandandanda

xxx:-I“m sorry wise donkey, that's all we have for today. Have a wonderful trip. It was a pleasure having you on the show.

WD:- And xxx thanks for the questions, even Oprah would have been proud of you, since she wouldnt have come across such a boring person at the other end. You did a fabulous job.And more thanks to the viewers. For being sweet enough to tolearate me and not reaching for the remote err mouse control.

I would like to thank my family and also my husband by mentioning few wonderful words about him, but he wants my help in packing so got to rush

xxx:-You can catch gaya on her blogs, which are on rediff, sify,blogspot,sulekha,spaces,tripod and o3. Have a nice day people.

  20. Bangalore is cooler, now. And its raining cats and dogs.
    The new accomodation was 'cos o3 refused to believe that I am me. It still says "you are not yourself". so, no access to my blogs there.

    currently blogging under this one.
