If you are a blogger from Chennai you should have been in Dee Cee Manor, T. nagar (personally the choice of venue was sad) yesterday. The Chennai blogger meet, sponsored by Microsoft was attended by around 100 people. I suspect many of them actually blogged. Though there were people of all ages from school kids to retirees, women were conspicuously in a minority.
A big thanks to Lemonade for initiating the meet and the cool welcome message she gave the gathering. Liked the 1 minute of fame where many got a chance to introduce their blog to the gathering. It was a good evening and the highlight was not the funny play by the Rebelz, an all male cast who came with an equal number of women whom I suspect were their understudies (no they don’t study their unders get a dictionary) but the near riot that Dave, Anju, Bungi, Lemonade, D and I started. We just couldn’t stop pulling each others legs, suspect Lemonade may have grown 1 inch by the end of the evening. I haven’t laughed a lot the past week and if u had read my earlier post you will know why, but I more than made up for it thanks to the above mentioned wonderful people.
I missed Chriz and Gayatri out there; they nearly complete the list of my favourite bloggers.
Thank you one and all for a great evening.
PS. If you have read my post on Sanjooo… you should try and catch the spoof done by NDTV that gave me tummy pain after doubling up in laughter. Here is the plot – a puppet llok alike of Sonia Gandi walks around calling Manu, manu like the original ad. She wakes up a startled Manmohan Singh look alike who apologizes for dozing off. Soniaji (look alike) gives a tongue lashing for dozing off when inflation is shooting up and elections are being lost. The voice over says disasters can strike anytime …and the advertiser is hold your breath LAX New Delhi Life.!!! Price less.
Take a bow NDTV.
Now you can laugh a little too...
