Sunshine Too Brief

I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks! You are my visitor number,



    I only realized today that I've been writing this blog for 4 years, 1 month and 14 days now!

    My writing hasn't improved at all, has it?

    Anyway, I was under the impression that it has been, oh I don't know, 2-3 years.

    Feeling like a bit of a loser now- I had set out so many goals and have accomplished so little it seems. On the upside, blogging was supposed to have been a fad for me like IRC, ICQ, Paltalk, Orkut and now Facebook. But this definitely has lasting power. I guess it IS my new journal ..only totaly public. "Hello! potential/future employers!" (Oh yeah, it has happened)

    I have never done this before but now I'm curious. I've been wondering who else, besides my friends Simika and Hena, has stuck through from the beginning of this blog? I'll allow anonymous comments for this post- so please introduce yourself and if you feel like it, tell me how long you've been following my crazy antics! I would love to find out. There's one reader from Australia who's been showing up for years now on my tracker - who ever you are 'please comment'! :D

    oh..erm....and in an effort to improve my style, my midyear resolution is to write posts/emails/text messages without faces, smiley/sarcastic/winky/disgust or otherwise.
    Feel free to point it out when I slip up (this one doesn't count of course)

    ok yeah scary! I just dug out the first email from Sim to see when I first started reading her blog, cause I know I got to your blog from hers. The email was dated 11/26/05!!! Yikes! Didn't realize I have been reading your blog that long! :-P

    I started reading your blog about a year ago I think. You're one of the few people who still updates their blog. <3
