Popped a cherry.. a lot of them, actually

Yet another friend of mine has shot into the blog arena of life. Kunal the one and only makes his introduction in typical lyrical hemming and hawing. But, while having this conversation with him earlier today, I got an idea for the next post at LIVING... Our Very Own First Posts.

I've collated some lines from the very first posts of some of my blog-buddies. The selection has been based on absolutely everything from closeness of relationship, to sillyness of post, to yadayadayada. Of course, there's space here for only a few. So, I started out with Drifting Divs, who starts like a duck with one webbed foot in the water...

this is a first, hesitant post. just testing waters

Then, there's Sharon the Nutcase, who murdered the content of her original blog, but then decided to scribble anew, a strife-torn Kafka -

There are constant changes, have purged the old blog, had to purge the old one, everyone changes, the time, the trees, the birds, your skin, your hair, and then the words you wrote stare at you, childish and gramatically incorrect(that remains a constant!)

My roomie at Chennai, Nelson the Big Moses, then followed suit. He decided to play for awhile, unsure of what to say. Today, his blog has some of the sweetest pictures I've ever seen, but he started out with -

aah, its time to log in my blog, especially since every self respecting, creative wannabe writer with an imagination has one.

Rule no:1 if one wants to be a writer ..........write ..........
Rule no:2 if one does not have a single piece of work published.............write everyday.

ok......... that brings me to Resolution no:1 for the new year (new year what? same shit different year)..........write.
Resolution no:2....write everyday............

I couldn't find the archives list on Phaltrix's blog, but I'm sure she would have come out with something suitably hilarious. In the meantime, here's a CV from Geet -

Shrivastava Geetanjali (b.Sept, 1981)

-Student of Literature , Voracious Reader of Books
-Chatterbox was a Label Earned in Childhood, It Still Applies
-Flaming Red-Hot Temper, Subdued Over the Years, But Still Boils Under the Surface
-Uncomfortable in Fake Situations , Ridiculously Failing in the Art of Small Talk
-Music is My Porn - Go Figure This Out!!
-Perfumes are Yet Another Weakness, Calvin Klein - a Favourite
-So are Scarves, and Silks, and Cottons, and Jewellery

And then, there are some of us, who have our profanities in check, like the always cool and composed English August, who recollects -

''August, You're gonna get hazaar fucked in Madna"- Dhrubo, 1993

"Hazaar fucked": (Old Indian saying) To be penetrated a thousand times; (syn) A bummed out experience.

Enough about throwing stones at glass houses. What did I write, in my first post? Well, something like this -

I like to think we're all 'living high'. I like to think we did an internship with the Buddha before joining ACJ and are experts on the Middle Path. I like to think Rhea Pillai was especially sweet on me and I know the Art of Living to a tee. I like to think I'm normal.


I'm just going to consider myself lucky...that you're so, so stupid that you can't find the archives.

I love this post! It's so interesting.

I smile as I read the first blog post of others and recall how I wrote that first post too.

Thanks for this. Have 'discovered' quite a few new blogs thanks to this one.

WTF??? Rahul I though Kunal wanted to stay anonymous and build up his blog a bit before he went public - like dude? I was supposed to do that announcing his arrival bit! *Annoyed*

Meanwhile - hehehe, the first posts can be quite interesting na? Shit my blog was just such an online 'dear diary' back then...and you notice I later used that 1st post in my side-bar...:-)

"popping cherries" eh?... interesting how you connect starting a blog with such an immensely life-altering experience... perhaps the next post could refer to *the* popped cherries?
