Butterflies in the proximity

Butterfly AwardMuch of the blog-world in my proximity is getting pollinated by butterflies and how could I get missed?

For 4 consecutive days by 4 different bloggers, my website got awarded an “Award” each, which is really cool! The last time I remember getting awards was back in 2001-02 when I had a static website and there was no trace of blogs or other interactive web elements we see today (oh I almost sound like a grandfather.)

So a big jar of honey to my following blogmates: Gopinath (Butterfly award), Mavin (Proximity award), Odzer (Butterfly award) and Kiran (Friendship bracelet.)

I am so lazy these days! In other funny story, last night I had a fantastic dream in which I was working as a double agent in one of those terrorist groups. Unfortunately, I made a mistake and the leader of that group suspected that there was something strange going on in his group. I swore to sacrifice my life and destroy India and pledged my allegiance to the group’s cause. Then he sent me to fight a ‘big’ enemy and I was alone in that skirmish. I couldn’t understand who my opponent was but as the enemy came closer, I discovered that it was a giant mosquito. I pointed my weapon towards the monster sized mosquito and felt a very sharp pain on my leg.

Then I woke up and swatted (swot?) the mosquito who had just bitten my leg. 😛

    • Thanks Debu, kinda surprised to see your comment. Why the “???” signs? Put your damn domain name there 😛

  1. Congrats on the well deserved awards and your blog milestones 🙂 and thank you fr the honey 🙂 Witty dream, how huge was the mosquito?

    • LOL I think that the mosquito metaphor was to suggest that we (India) have to deal with internal problems (diseases) in addition to external ones. The thing was quite big 😀 Very very big (gesturing with hands but you can’t see it… lol!)

  2. Congratulations for reaching this enviable milestone!

  3. congrats on the awards Priyank. 🙂 And writing these 250 posts!

    • Cool! Thanks to you too for reading 😛

  4. By the way, nice photo.

  5. Congrats on the awards and the 250th post.
    The pictures of your trip to Bhutan are very nice.

    • Thanks Prerna! So when are you gonna visit Bhutan 🙂

  6. @ Priyank : Sure you do deserve this award, without a doubt. You keep a lovely blog. Stop thinking too much about terrorists and what they do its driving you nuts :p Anyway I have noticed that watching the news before I sleep gives me very troubled sleep so I stopped doing that.

    • Thanks again Odzer! And I will take your advice. It’s hard to get your mind off somethings although you know that thinking about them is irrelevant.

  7. your milestones and the dreams..wonder if there is a connect somewhere..congrats 🙂 and tell me, are u coming down ? In back in Bangalore

    • 🙂 Yes I am coming to Mysore, finally my parents managed to get their things in place. I will email and call you.

  8. Congratulations!!! And the tower looks like the Beanstalk from the fairytale, vanishing into the clouds. 🙂

    • LOL Amit…. beanstalk indeed!!

  9. …I had a better dream, I was a spy working for Prime Minister Harper, lol. No you are not lazy, just busy, lol. BTW I am not sure if I did, but I want to wish you Happy Holidays, Happy New year, Happy travels, and happy blogging. Congrats on your awards! Anna 🙂

  10. Priyank,

    Congratulations on the Awards and the 250th post. It’s fine to be lazy as long as you enjoy being so. Wish I were around to say welcome to Karnataka.:D

    • Thanks GV! Dreams have so much action packed in them even if they last few minutes, isn’t it?

  15. Hey Priyank boy I have a good news for you. You are not late, because Ukrainians celebrate Xmas on Jan 7, so theoretically you are not late, lol. Thanks, and Happy Healthy New Year and lots of adventures, and lot of reading for me, lol. Thanks again. Anna 🙂
