Blog-a-Ton, A Stepping Stone and A Guest Post

What a week it has been! Good wishes all around!! I am the Blog-a-Tonic of the Month, October 2009!! After the awesome and popular bloggers, Shilpa Garg (August 2009), Indian Pundit and Govind (September 2009)!! That I belong to the same Wall of Honour or Hall of Fame goes a long way to convince me, that I may actually be the genius I secretly think myself to be!! (Check the sidebar, the award is proudly displayed) 

But who I have have to thank are: 

  • Avada, Harsha, Sojo, Raji, Pra, Shankar, Pawan, Venky, also Aativas, terrific bloggers themselves, you have honoured me; 
  • Vipul for Blog-a-Ton; 
  • Aditya, Sourav and Indian Pundit, they are my good blog buddies and critics, who had judged mine as the best post, way ahead of time, and IP went as far as to ask for a party (in silico?) for the (yet to be) win(!); 
  • to my  co-Blog-a-Tonics, it was something participating with you; 
  • and Every One Else who thought mine to be deserving or, at least, read it. 

Next, I need to say this here, is I am well into the next phase of my career, because I just qualified in an exam for that. Need I say that I am happy, and relieved!! I am not going into much explanation because as much as I want to show off, I won’t do it, because there’s still a long way to go from here. This is just another stepping stone to where I actually want to be. What I really want to say here is that, even if at the end of the day it is my achievement, the true credit goes to that one special person in my life, who had made this possible against all odds, the odds which included me (a story for another post), in that fateful week in June.

Right now, I am glad to say I am swamped with work. I am glad because this means I must have been doing something right. But this is one reason that suddenly the bane of my existence in front of the laptop has to take a back seat. I don’t know who is more sad, me or you, or even, who is more relieved, you or my internet connection…

This post is actually to tell you, if you are one of those rare breed of people who enjoy reading (and just not read because it’s here) the Maverick Misfit, I am taking a breather, a reluctant but necessary one. If you really, really can’t do without reading the Misfit girl (alas, it has stuck, no one calls me “the Maverick girl”) you can scoot over to a blogger buddy’s blog (which most may already know) Sidoscope: The science of stupidity!!!! to read on the series, Battle of Sexes Revisited, the first of which is written by the talented blog owner Sid aka Ravan (who incidentally designed my “Blog-a-Tonic of the Month” award banner) and the second one, by yours truly, as a guest post. 

Do read them. I didn’t know I was so good so as to get the brilliant physicist (no, it’s not Einstein, but almost, maybe) RSV as my Fan, Cooler, or AC (whatever I may like), who writes less often for my liking and changes templates more, and I am not in Biology (read, read, and that bulb in your head will glow).

If you don’t know why I was chosen to write the “female” version of that epic Battle then you have been missing the tussle going on in here after Thinking Out Loud… was posted. And the comments that piled up, are good enough to be compiled and made into a brand new post. And if you are really new here, you should also read the sequel to it this one, There’s A Reason… along with the feedbacks, you won’t be disappointed.

So enough policing the traffic!! And keeping readers happy! 🙂

In other news, I have a long awards post in the wings for sometime now, it’ll be out in a week’s time! Neha, no need to grab them, a few do have your name on them.

So, please let me know you are all alive the easiest way- leave a comment- good wishes will be great, but try to go less on the curses.

I think I have covered everything of importance in here. Till I start to ramble again, take care everybody!! 🙂
