Three Years

Today happens to be the day when I posted my first blog post in 2007. I had not thought at the time that I would manage to keep this blog alive even for a year, let alone three (given my short attention span for anything I dabble in J ). Although my blogging frequency has considerably reduced over the years, I still try to put together the thought that comes to my mind once in a while.
On a different note, it occurred to me yesterday that if a film about film is called metafilm and data about data is called metadata, should a blog about blog be called metablog? I looked up metablog in my trusted only to be rudely questioned – did you mean metabolic? Of course I didn’t! But google as always turned out to be quite helpful in letting me know that my useless thought wasn’t useless after all. And that the blog about blogs is indeed called a metablog!

The best way to treat Shopaholism..

.. is by making one go through wedding shopping twice in less than 1 year. Now that I have realized from experience - no wedding shopping lasts less than 2 months (I know of some which go on for 6 months or more). There are so many things to take care of that all your weekends turn out to be much more hectic than your work days. So much so that you wish for the work week to begin soon!

The other thing I have realized in the past few weeks is that there is no such thing as a simple wedding. All your resolve about having a simple wedding goes down the drain when things start happening to you mysteriously without you realizing that this is not what you wanted. And by the time you do realize, it is too late …
