Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures

A Friend : You have a blog!!? What do you write about? Petitions?
IHM: Err ... Generally ... this and that. You come and sign.
A Friend: What this and that?
IHM: Err ... actually ... general stuff ... about everyday life ... family, friends and yeah how to get better governance.
A Friend:
Whoa! Friends also?
IHM: Only sometimes.
A Friend: Have you written about me?
IHM:
Well yes, but you won’t know it’s ...
A Friend: What? I am on the internet :) I am famous and I don't even know it!
IHM: Actually nobody would guess it's you; I shifted your mole from the right to the left cheek.
A Friend: What luck! I was so close to being famous!

Next day.


A Friend: I used to think internet is only good for downloading music. IHM you have to teach me how to blog.
IHM: Really? You are interested!! What are you going to call your blog?
A Friend: ... and I am going to write all about my separation drama and about these terror attacks.
IHM: Write about anything...
A Friend: And about why these terrorists did not blow the Taj. Tell me why didn't they?
IHM: They didn't have enough explosives?
A Friend: They had more than enough explosives! The plan was to DISTRACT while they infiltrate, now you watch. They are all over the country.
IHM: This was in the news?
A Friend: I AM TELLING YOU!

IHM Your telling is enough. Now kindly write your name and email address here, if you really care for your country.

A Friend: Only 69 people have signed this petition?

IHM: They don’t know about your infiltration theory.

A Friend: Yeah, let' demand these ELECTORAL REFORMS - this is not about the unnecessarily-being-confused- 49-O - but reforms proposed by the Election Commission to be implemented.

IHM: Thank You Ma'am.

LOL on the "I am telling you", do help her to set up her blog - should be interesting

Indian Home Maker said...

Ritu She says, her blog will be about H2O and H2SO4, about where, Mica, Bauxite, Copper are found in India, about clouds formation and fractions and rational numbers etc LOL :) Because she has no 'fursat' for all this.

vimmuuu said...

@lankr1ta said...

Oh, thank you! I was for a theme on Ryze, Shakespeare and Company... Would appreciate your comments on the preceding posts- the One on "Islamic Terrorism" and the one on the circling vultures.

Charakan said...

I signed the petition

myheadtrip said...

Nice friends you have...do share her blog url when she sets it up....will make an interesting read with her infiltration theories :)

Usha Pisharody said...

LOL!

Would you believe, I got one of my friends to seriously blog. She writes in malayalam.. :)

But the others, well, they wait for their daily dose of gyan...hehehe, that I supply, from yours.. and tell them of mine.

I know for sure they wont read.. :D!!

But they are all interested in yours.. :) :)

So thanks!

Btw, nice friends!!!

Indian Home Maker said...

Vimmuuu Thanks :) Not only for the award but also for blogrolling me :)

Indian Home Maker said...

Charakan Thanks :)
This may not be the end of all our troubles and will not instantly cleanse our political system, but it is a definite step forward!

Indian Home Maker said...

my head trip She is really busy, will not be blogging in near future. Her son is in class IX, so Board Exam stress has started full swing. But she signed the petition, with the logic, that this isn't the best but "something is better than doing nothing but cribbing!"

@lankrita - LOVED your post on Islamic Terrorism - this is exactly how I feel too! I think all Indians should read it and keep it in mind.

Manish Raj said...

IHM..indeed the Taz episode looked more of a distraction...they killed so many people in Mumbai..

God forbid, I see Bangalore, Goa etc as next targets..

Indian Home Maker said...

@ Manish Raj What my friend says is they could have killed a much larger number, instead they seemed bent on getting attention. As if they wanted all eyes focused on Bombay... Yes it is possible, we hear rumours of terrorists being loose and unidentified all over India - and you never know!

@ Usha Pisharody NO friends of mine blog! Only one reads occasionally (she was in that online chat post)...
And this friend, she has an idea but isn't really interested ... forgot about it by evening :)
In a way it is good, imagine how addicted we would be if our friends were also blogging!

Gopinath's "Artickles" said...

IHM, you can start a blogging institute. Did you read the TOI editorial to teach politicians how to speak to the media? Read about it in my latest blogpost.

Indian Home Maker said...

Gopinath's "Artickles" - LOL, Nobody is interested in learning :(

I missed this article ... let me read it on your blog :)

Mampi said...

Here is all the best for her.
And please tell her to enlighten us about all that she says her blog will be about. I am already drooling for the new blog.

Gopinath's "Artickles" said...

Thanks for posting a limerick in the comment section of my blog.
Here's one for you:
A blogger who calls herself Indian Home Maker,
picks up an issue and is quite a raker,
Now there is a rumour
That she'll take up humour,
One wonders if she is also an overtaker?

Homecooked said...

This was funny! I am sure you'll have many such conversations once all your friends find out about your blog :)

Iya said...

hey. i have signed the petition...

hitch writer said...

I signed it too...!!

Chirag said...

Just like the movie 'Recruit'. So you are spreading the addiction around :)

Monika said...

lol!!! i love this :) would love to read her

Indian Home Maker said...

@ Monika She is not blogging :( Nice to see you back!!! :)))

@ Chirag LOL! It didn't work she decided she had better things to do :( But it's good to see you back on the blogosphere :)

@Iya You blogged about Jago Re, I knew you would sign :)

@ Homecooked Not telling any other friends :)) Most of them use the net for bare minimum jobs and some just aren't interested!

@ hitchwriter Thank You :)Please tell your friends to sign it too!

@Gopinath's *artickles* LOL That's really funny and i am glad you did not say 'undertaker'!

@Mampi She has told it is a waste of time and if I don't take care I will get carpal tunnel syndrome from so much typing :)
