Is It Strange?


1. That this is the fastest consecutive post in the history of this blog? (Yeah it has a long history!)

2. That I carry 3 cell phones and less than 10 people have all the 3 numbers?

3. That I feel cheese-burst pizza is the best thing that’s ever happened to mankind? (Man how addictive is it?)

4. That I feel cheese-burst pizza is the worst thing that’s ever happened to mankind? (Man how many calories does it contain?)

5. That I feel Julianne Moore, at 49, is one of the most beautiful woman I have ever seen?

6. That I feel MS Word is wrong when it’s correcting me in the previous point that the word should be ‘women’ and not ‘woman’?

7. That the last 4 points started with ‘That I feel’?

8. That somewhere in my mind a voice is telling me that if I make a list it’s gotta contain 10 points?

9. That I have a favourite booth/urinal in the office restroom?

10. That I heaved a sigh of relief that the count reached 10?

11. That I like Coke more than Pepsi? (And yeah if you give me Coke and Pepsi without telling me which is which, I can still point out Coke!)

12. That I love watching movies at the theatre and watching them in the TV/laptop isn’t half as much fun?

13. That I’m addicted to SMS chatting? (On an ordinary day, close to 100 texts find their way out of my cell)

14. That I can’t, for some reason, enjoy the movies that have come before my time and are regarded as “classics” (read ‘The Godfather’ series and the like. Sholay is an exception)?

15. That in the previous point, I was confused of where to put the question mark, before or after the braces?

16. That on some days, my appetite touches sky-high limits? (No matter how much ever I eat, I still don’t feel full!)

17. That I’m gonna end this list on a totally non-happening count of 17?

PS: This is the 25th post on Blunt Edges. Thanks to everyone who has ever taken out time to read at least a single line here. And a special mention to the 68 followers, I must say, you have a great taste! ;)

Sjmach said...

Finally you got time to post. Nice one.

Choco said...

Whoa! Everyone is so happy that Blunt Edges has posted, posted well, hit a landmark and thankfully, while I was away did not move from fizzy drinks to something else. :)

Ohk.
Please don't kill me.
Happy 25th Post Mr Edges. You sure rock! :)

Scattered Thoughts... said...

You manage 3 phones.. I bow to thee monsieur.. MS word.. yeah at times it sucks.. but then nothing new with MS :)

mentalie said...

careful with the 'i feels', blunt. it usually indicates high levels of estrogen.

kanaguonline said...

congrats on the 25th post dude.. :) :)

and you didn't liked Godfather series... :( :( I always like to see it whenever I get a chance... I am addictive to it..

and you can find difference between coke and pepsi.. superb..

SMS chatting is not so strange... I have done it while in college... but these days just calling up.. :) :)

sakhii•• said...

i like the way u express ur musings...its cute...really...!!

Riddhiculuos said...

Hmm first let me comment on the post. then will reply to the -reply to my earlier comment- ahem that is confusing..

yeah so kahan thi mein..

4. That I feel you have just given Cheese Burst pizza a philosophical angle by calling it the best and the worst thing. After all that is the truth behind this life everything that u like becomes your weakness. deep meaning.

5. That I feel I have nothing to comment on it. beautiful hai toh hogi, mere ghar se kya jata hai. :P

6. That I feel MS word is a saviour in american disguise . so it does not acknowledge any british english. And keeps on correcting 'colour' 'saviour'.. crap. and yes woman is right unless MS word thinks of 'moore' as juli and more

7. That I feel I already felt the 'that i feel'

8. That somewhere in my mind I always think 'round numbers' and figures make a picture or post look complete.. so, aisa kuch hota hai.

9. hahahahahahah u sing aloud the remix version of that shammi kapoor version 'aaii aaiya karun mein kya susu susu'

10. Yeah Finally. Sigh!!

11. I don't like either. Thumbs up taste the thunder.

12. hmm i love watching movies on big screen. Also I think even if the movie is bakwas for some reason the feel of big screen makes it look tolerable. On TV laptop.. I dont mind But not with the same enthuness

13. Ditto. I love doing that. I remember once upon a time 1paisa scheme of sms and all got me addicted to this thing. in btwn classes we used to msg 'boring class' .. and make faces.. then when they resumed to high wala .. uff what a show down it was..

14. I actually enjoy them. Love godfather/ guru dutt flicks like do aankhein baarah haath.. and even iranian old movies.. I love movies. Period.

15. Ohh I am always confused about this. like when you have quotation marks in a sentence where to put the full stop and all.. punctuation gadbad..

16.hehe bhukkkad.

17. hehe tu satra baras ka mein 16 baras ki.. :)

haah done now replying....
yay u'r a phoenix! :D
hmm To call a missing cellphone specially when it is always on silent. is not a good idea. I have to strain my hearing skills to actually figure out where is the vibration noise coming from.. whatever half my life is spent looking for specs and the other half for cell phone.. puri zindagi dhoondhti reh jaungi. :P

3. Yes me likes cheese burst!!I like cheeeseeeeee'

n You didn't know I was studying?
Yep I am studying
and yes u remember reading right about teh long journey to office. But i get bored of work very easily. So i work in installments of 3-4 months or 6 months.. I was working for four months .. now back to studies.. and almost time for new job hunt. hehe..
In short- I work when m bored of studies and study when bored of padhai. But cant do both at a stretch.
ohh lord this comment has surpased all previous comments.. lord

Riddhiculuos said...

gosh i wrote some gadbad sentence there.. heehe .. I am seriously drunk when i reply.. gawwd..
I meant
In short- I work when m bored of studies and study when bored of work. But cant do both at a stretch.

Zeba said...

blunt edges said...

@ Riddhi
OMG...here it goes! ***takes a deep breath***
4. eh? what?

7. u did? really?
8. i know...but isn't it way too normal? n normal, my friend, is boring! hai na?
9. i would rather just take a leak n go back...u know mostly there are other people also in the loo :P
10. YAY! :D
11. thumbs up is yuck! :P
12. bada hai toh behtar hai! (talking about screens!) :P
13. what's more fun than texting in a boring class?
14. even i love movies...but only new ones!
15. guess i'm better at this then! :P
16. that i am! :D
17. lol...hahahaha...main rishi kapoor...tu tina munim! :D

why do u keep the cell in silent mode at home??? :o
ohhh...so u are a chashmish ha? :P

wait lemme get this straight!
u work when u are bored of studies n u study when u are bored of working?
i got bored of studies when i was in the fifth grade! hell noone gave me this option then!

ps: do something about the drinking :P

Anya said...

I 'm also a coke lover but only the real coca cola ;)
(I tast imm. when its pepsi!!!!!

ConCATulations on your 25th post

Kareltje =^.^=
Anya :-)

Grayquill said...

Funny Post!
I'm with you about Coke - at a restaurant and I order a Coke, “We have Pepsi is that okay?”
“No, I’ll just have water”
And, why three cell phones are you a secret agent and switch from phone to the other phone incase the enemy is tracking you? or maybe one is yours and one is mothers and the last one is your girl friends. To that I would say – time to buy a purse.
As for the “I feel” statements – I give you a quote from John Wooden “Emotion is the enemy”
One more quote from “Rick Miller on the Radio” – If you are under thirty years old you have not earned the right to say I think because you are incapable of it” (actually this is a paraphrase) Therefore, I feel is totally appropriate.
Fun Post!

The Survivor said...

3 cellphones? A busy man ha.

Julianne is, and there are others too :)

Thought there would be 25 pts,

Congrats on your 25th post.

gayathri-vishwanathan said...

like i said before...pepsi is so wannabe! ;)
n there's a huge secret behind the 3 cell phones thing...u came very close 2 it though with your guess ;)
i'm sure rick miller(whoever he is) was over 30 when he said that! :D

@ The Survivor
of course a very busy man! ;)
well even listing 25 points would have been predictable...so held back at 17 :D
thanks a lot...n i love julianne :D

@ gayathri

blunt edges said...

HaRy!! said...

join de club dudy... my appetite reaches sky and then the universe :)

Meenakshi said...

It ain't strange at all.. i said " me too" in most of the points; except the coke one (i dont like any aerated drinks).

But it is strange,2 posts in short duration.
Its also strange that even in my somewhat busy schedule going on with work and life, I kept checking my dashboard, so that I don't miss out on awesome blogs am following..yet I missed yours..both the post..no idea how :(

Bad bad dashboard..
Thanks to u correcting me, I wouldn't have discovered until your next post (for which there would be a looooong wait again)

Happy 25th post!!! Post worth the milestone :)

blunt edges said...

@ HaRy
dudy? lol
cheers 2 good food :D

@ Meenakshi

yeah yeah...blame it on the dashboard :P
thanks a lot :)

Shanu said...

Zubaan se kuch na bole toh kya..humari aankhon ki bhasha samjho..jaanam samjha karo :)

blunt edges said...

@ Shanu
'aankhon'? plural? ek hi toh dikhta hai! dusra wala hai bhi ya nahi? :P

Shanu said...

@ Bluntu

Tera bhi toh 1 hand, 1 eye and 1 ear nahi dikhta..but maine kabhi shaq nahi kiya...aur tune mujhse aisa sawal pooch liya!!

Log meri aankon main khone ke liye line main khade hain aur main hai jo tere intezar main pose marke baithi hai :(

blunt edges said...

@ Shanu
i'm trying 2 type with one eye closed n with only one hand...the eye ain't much of a problem, but the hand is!

kya gazab ka pose hai tumhara,
honestly lajawab hai ye nazara,
tumhare adao pe main dil haara,
hope main bhi lagta hu tumhe pyara!
:D

Shanu said...

@ Bluntu

Tum baase ho humare dil me
tum aate ho toh, rang cha jaata hai mehfil main
Yeah stupid shayari, yeh baatein thru comments
Tum nahi jaante kitna cherish karti hoon main yeah moments
Kya lagte ho tum mujhe pyare, tum yeah sawal karte ho
But tell me sumthin,
Mere 1 comment ka reply karne main, kyun tum half n hour lete ho?

Happy 25th post...I cannot wait to read the next 25! :D

blunt edges said...

@ Shanu
kal raat ko tha main bade neend me,
isliye kar raha tha reply slow motion me.
aur phir jab hum aap jaise special logon se kar rahe ho baat,
toh ensure karna padta hai ki kuch aisa na bol de jisse lag jaaye apni waat!


@ Lynda
thanks a lot :D
hope i don't let u down :)

Ketan said...

blunt edges,

I'm totally jealous! How do you manage to get so many comments?!!!!!

Anyway... [deep breath; jealousy laced anger must not show]


Re: point 6., actually MS-Word is not wrong. Even I used to make that mistake a few years back. The mistake we make is that we tend to associate the noun, say, "fruit" with "one".

See the following sentence:

"One of my favorite fruit/fruits is mango".

The point is what we are actually saying is that:

"Of the (many known) fruits, mango is my favorite."

So, basically MS-Word was right.

Same with me about points 9 and 12! ;)

WRT 14, somehow I also did not enjoy Sholay that much, and when I tell this to people, they look at me like I am Gabbar Singh crossed with Shakti Kapoor and Rahul Mahajan!! :P

And congratulations on your 25th post!

Take care.

blunt edges said...

@ Ketan
finally FinallY FINALLY i meet someone who's jealous of me! thanks a lot dude ;)
so are u trying 2 say it should be "...Julianne Moore, at 49, is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen"? :o
n it seems u have got me wrong there buddy! I LOVE SHOLAY! i meant i don't like the other 'classics'...sholay is an exception...HOW CAN U NOT LIKE SHOLAY??? ***gives the same look u talked about***
thanks a lot n u take care too buddy :D

@ ki
coke rocks! :D
welcome 2 blunt edges :D

@ rohini
welcome 2 blunt edges :D
thanks a lot n happy holi 2 u too :)

Ketan said...

Yes, it should be "women". You are still not convinced after than explanation (this is not a loaded question)? Asking because if I could not convince, then I ought to do something about my style of explaining, or maybe learn grammar better. You may try typing the same sentence using "fruit(s)" for instance.

No, no, I fully understand that you like Sholay very much. I do not like it "as much"! ;)

I have started loving *that* look. :P

And what's the point only being grateful, eh? You should tell me how can I increase comments on my blog, and in return I will tell you how you could reduce the number of comments on your blog! You see, you will have lesser effort to put in, in replying to people, and that effort and time you could put to some other use (like reading and commenting on my blog posts!) ;)

Ketan said...

"...Julianne Moore, at 49, is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen"

The other way to put it would be:

"Of the most beautiful women I have ever seen, one is Julianne Moore (at 49) is the most beautiful woman."

If I have to explain in another way, it is that the expression "one (out) of" automatically makes you talk of a ratio, and ratio always has a denominator, and it is this denominator (all the beautiful women you have seen) that is the plural!

If you say it in slightly modified manner, it would be:

"Of the ones I have seen, the most beautiful woman is Juliane Moore."

Just see the google search results, which might convince you better.

If you come across a better explanation, please do let me know, because I am pretty sure you will research the topic considering how you will be spending lesser time responding to comments thanks to the ideas I would give you! :D

Ketan said...

"Of the most beautiful women I have ever seen, one is Julianne Moore (at 49) is the most beautiful woman." - CUT, CUT. Embarrassing mistake.

I meant:


"Of the most beautiful women I have ever seen, one (woman) is Julianne Moore (at 49)."

sepo said...

lol
agree with most of the points except for cheese burst, actually i dun mind some extra calories when it comes to cheese burst :)

but my favorite was MS DOS,,, it is soo very true :D

btw m following ur blog :)

Aparna said...

I am almost scared to post the 95th comment, it might get lost some where here and you may totally ignore it.
Julianna Moore is fabulous and what has age got to do with it?

Ketan said...

Julian Moore has a lot to do with Blunt Edges' and my interest in English grammar!

BTW, I still don't know who Juliane Moore is!! I better look her up on Wikipedia. :P

Ketan said...

Okay, I saw how she looks. And she looks... extremely good!!

Which is not a great thing, because my understanding of life is people liking same things/people creates competition, which is undesirable, except for or course, organisms like Julanne Moore could replicate through binary fission, and also manage to fall in love with people like me! ;)

Ketan said...

And let me do my bit, two comments above this one - APARNA HAS POSTED A COMMENT. DO NOT MISS IT! ;)

blunt edges said...

@ Ketan
OMG...what are u? a commenting machine? now u know how i get so many comments here ;)
instead of "Of the most beautiful women I have ever seen, one (woman) is Julianne Moore (at 49).", i would rather go with "Of all the women I have ever seen, Julianne Moore (at 49), is one of the most beautiful." What say?
n honestly i don't think she would be one bit worried that the 2 of us like her, trust me we 2 wouldn't certainly be the first ones!

@ sepo
ahhh...cheese burst is heaven on earth...n i had it again yesterday...it sure is gonna be the cause of my death!
lol...hope u still use DOS :P
thanks a lot 4 following :D

@ Aparna
comments never get lost at blunt edges, my friend! :)
age has nothing 2 do it...just that she's probably the most "mature" celluloid crush i have ever had! :D

Ketan said...

I was thinking of commenting, but now I am feeling self-conscious. :(

Anyway, it's not about Julianne Moore worrying about us, it's about us being bothered of each other! :P

Anyway, I just wanted to point out, why it should be wome despite the fact that there is only one Julianne Moore (that we know of)!

Cheers!

blunt edges said...

@ Ketan
lol...no worries dude...keep commenting...n btw u have the distinct honor of being the person 2 post the 100th comment on this post! :D

its ok buddy...u can have her...tu bhi kya yaad karega ;)

Ketan said...

Thanks, but I find this kind of generosity fishy! Anyway, now that you are out of my way, the remaining challengers should be a bit easier to take care of. ;)

blunt edges said...

@ Ketan
le...bhalai ka zamana hi nahi raha...i stepped aside n let u have the absolutely gorgeous julianne n u still suspect something fishy! ***stares in disbelief***

Ketan said...

I too was *staring in disbelief* when you made that offer! ;)

R3d3MpTioN said...

It's a brilliant post and I don't know where to start from :)

suruchi said...

Hellooooo...
It is really strange how witty u got...or rather how much wittier it all got as the pointers increased in numbers...and ooooooooh why did it end at 17...wouldn’t mind some more;-)

Poor cheese burst pizza...just as it must be yipiee-ing in a celebrative mode...u sloshed it down;-)

And MS WORD was kinda right*at the risk of sounding a stuck up English teacher...which i am...not stuck up silly...teacher!* ‘one of’ is followed by plural noun...hehe*couldn’t resist that...sorry*

U have a fav booth in the restroom section...awww*not mush awww..just awww...*n I thought I was the only weird one who did so:-)

Great read:-)

blunt edges said...

@ suruchi
well just wanted 2 end it at an odd number! :)
but i still love cheese burst...its the best!
ahem...now i wouldn't argue about the 'stuck up' part either! :P
u have a fav booth too? ***cyber high-five***

Darshan Chande said...

Pooja... said...

Are you seriously a guy??? All the male species, who are my friend or in relation, find it hard to send across even one sms a day...all I'm blessed with are forwarded stuff...and when pressed to reply me, in general they 'll go about calling me rather than smsing...
phew!!! I'll give it a break...needless to say loved this post too, but 'll try to resist myself from posting any more comments, lest u take me for a psychic stalker :D

blunt edges said...

@ Pooja
Never and I mean NEVER ask a guy that question!! :P
I have a few "calling-friends" and a few "texting-friends" and I like the mix :)
PS: Comments are invited. Never had a stalker, leave alone a psychic one. So you are most welcome :P
