Good News (GN): I’m posting!

Bad News (BN): There isn't anything particular that I have 2 say!

GN: I got a project :D

BN: Gotta work there :(

GN: Watched love aaj kal :D:D:D

BN: Didn’t watch kaminey :(:(:(

GN: Went home :D

BN: Had 2 come back :(

GN: Ate a lot when I was there

BN: Which somehow is directly proportional 2 the amount of calories that find a place on the human body (strange isn’t it?)

GN: I’m running out of good news!

BN: Death toll coz of swine flu is increasing on a daily basis

GN: Apparently some drug has been discovered 4 it

BN: Apparently that isn’t confirmed news

GN: As I said before, I’m really running out of good news!!!

BN: My cell konked off...n I was cell-less 4 an entire day!

GN: My cell’s working fine now :D:D

Since I’ve completely run out of news...I’ll post 5 random questions that anyone can choose 2 answer :D

1. What’s the English word for “majboori”?

2. What’s the last name of Madonna?

3. Why do we (Indians) pronounce “Z” as “Zee” when we talk of the bike CBZ, but pronounce it “Zed” otherwise?

4. Which was the 1st cell number ever?

5. Does anyone know what the point of this whole post is?

Update: Thanx 2 Miss Kido n Choco, I have got a few blogging awards of late...u can see those on the right of ur screen :D:D:D

Good news is that you made this silly post pretty interesting, bad news is at 11.15 at night my brain does not function at its optimum level. So I do not know the answers to any of your questions.

Nupur said...

Hehe..... I'm just wondering when would the day come when Aaj Tak and India TV would come out with news in such an amazing way!!

blunt edges said...

@ Aparna
glad u found it interesting coz its the result of a no-idea-4-a-post syndrome! ;)
n welcome 2 my blog :D

@ Nupur
lol...well aaj tak n india tv ain't as cool as blunt edges (yup modesty is not one of my traits) ;)

Lakshmi said...

Loved ur post.. u definitely brightened me up so thts good news.. n a score for Blunt Edges..n i m bored out of my wits.. so I am gonna answer all ur questions evn it takes me the entire night to do so...

I googled all the questions n here goes...

1) Ppl say its complusion, obligation, helplessness and evn constraint.. feel free to choose one :)

2) Madonna's Dad name is Silvio Ciccone, so lets take the last name to be Ciccone... right???

3) I was taught in KG to pronounce Z as Zed so i did tht.. til a while ago.. so I blame it on my Miss in KG:)( not a good one, i knw..bear with me)

4)All i cud find was tht the world's first telephone number is presumed to be one..it says nothin bout cell phones... :( Sorry.. I failed tht one...

5)I think only U can answer tht.. But I can guess... mayb its coz u havent posted sumthin for long.. n u thot it wud b a good idea to remind ur readers tht u r still alive - hale n hearty... n ready to bore everyone to death if they wish so...

Signing off at this.. I m too lazy to type any more...


Choco said...

GN is that someone has taken the pain to answer all of your questions above
BN is that there is no BN. I am in an idiotically good mood right now.

GN is that I have another GN which is that this post was quite delightful to read
BN is that there is no BN right now. But it will be BN if you wait another month before posting something else.
Cheers :)

Choco said...

PS: Just noticed the awards :)

blunt edges said...

Srinivas said...

@Blunt Edges

Some creativity that. But I went onto an entirely philosophical plane midway through the post wondering if the premature exhaustion of good news, with the bad news still pouring out, were an indication of the times we live in. :P

As to your questions, my IQ is not that great: let me just answer 3 as it is up my alley. "zed" is the British way of pronouncing it while "zee" is the American way and since we adhere to the British system we pronounce it "zed". However, with regard to bikes and other things fashionable, "zee" "seems" - or so they say - more stylish. That's for that!

Thanks for dropping by :) And yeah good to see my sterile blog in your blogroll too! :)

Rubina said...

GN: ehh....ummmm....

whoaaaa...my post must be way better than what i thot ;)
thanx 4 visiting and yup all gud blogs do find a place on the roll :D
i knew the "zed" n "zee" funda...but can't understand why we need 2 use "zee" 4 some words alone...we, indians sure r strange n therefore unique :D

@ Rubina

Beauty and the BEast said...

..... ok am done laughing now!!!

I have no answers to your questions, I am not even 'trying' to answer them...

Would be fun to read how you came upon those answers yourself :D

blunt edges said...

@ Beauty
the questions were a result of absolute lack of imagination n boredom!!! (how honest m i???) D

Jyoti said...

Interesting this post was.

Funny how you were running out of Good news and the list of bad news was never ending types. Pretty much ironical, eh.

And.. Majboori.. Hmmm.. I wonder.

blunt edges said...

@ Jyoti
ironical it sure was!
n some ppl have said that majboori would be compulsion...so m going with that at the moment :D

workhard said...

very nicely written without any purpose.. no clue to the questions u posted

Domain registration india

riddhi said...

1. What’s the English word for “majboori”?

Emraan Hashmi, helplessness, Mahtma Gandhi- as in no way offensive but i saw some uncle use this phrase once "majboori ka naam mahatma gandhi" I have no clue what it means.

2. What’s the last name of Madonna?

Kale Tilwali

3. Why do we (Indians) pronounce “Z” as “Zee” when we talk of the bike CBZ, but pronounce it “Zed” otherwise?

ohh because when once upon a time we were young our teachers always pronounced Z as Zed. But one fine day there was a televani and it said Zee TV.. and then the Z became Zeee malik.. and here came CBZ.. now we have Sub Zee burger.and ZooZOOs..we do not pronounce them as ZedoooZedoos.. so i guys we have been confused with the idea of these words from the very begginning

4. Which was the 1st cell number ever?
The First Cellphone (1973)

Name: Motorola Dyna-Tac
Size: 9 x 5 x 1.75 inches
Weight: 2.5 pounds
Display: None
Number of Circuit Boards: 30
Talk time: 35 minutes
Recharge Time: 10 hours
Features: Talk, listen, dial

But they do not have 'the' number.. hota hai hota hai .. this is one question for which we have no answer. For example the full form of DLF.. find kero aur mujhe batao.. i do not mean delhi land and finance.. i mean the DLF city the architecture thingi.. the indian crick match DLF.. full form nahin pata.. :/

5. Does anyone know what the point of this whole post is?
the point of this entire post is pointing towards only one point that again points towards a very interesting point of pointing fingures pointlessly over a pointless post regarding finding a point to write a post. Point taken.

riddhi said...

the longest comment awards goes toooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

thank you thank you..

blunt edges said...

@ riddhi
u r one crazy (ok maybe the correct way 2 say it is CRAZZZYYYYYYYYYY) woman...aren't u? :P
1. emraan hashmi...i agree
gandhi? even i didn't get what that meant!
2. madonna kale tilwali...ahh...scorching hot name!
3. so what do u say? zed or zee?
4. the 1st cell was a moto? i thought nokia was the pioneer!
5. great u took the point (i thought i almost lost it there!)
