 12…People I’m tagging (to do this meme)

There need to be readers to tag no?



  1. a) Ashique Banaaya is a master piece and will only be understood after its time. Like Picasso.

    b) You’ve got em readers boy.

    c) Okay, I give up. Men can multitask. or, multi chat. or whatever.

  2. HAHAHA.
    Damn funny, man.

    never both together, you will die! had me ROTFL.

    And I hope you weren’t being ironic when you said: Fat Bastard’s cover of ‘El Condor Pasa’ even though it is a veritable masterpiece

  3. Happy birthday! 😀

  4. @ Kate:

    @ viv:
    You Know…..

  5. Who is this Elisha Cuthbert and why does she have a boy’s name?

  6. You don’t know Elisha Cuthbert?
    She’s Calculus Cuthbert’s second (and illegitimate) daughter.

  7. You don’t know Elisha Cuthbert?
    She’s Cuthbert Calculus’s second (and illegitimate) daughter.
    Since she was an illegitimate child, she couldn’t have her dad’s surname.

  8. Didnt know that views on revolution had takers.Sea breeze exists in chennai.Can find it even in a distant koyembedu.A summer in delhi would be a great idea to realize the difference between a terribly hot city on coast and a terribly hot city away from it.

  9. @ viv: sad sad joke

    @ Prat: I didn’t say they were takers. they just had to listen to it. that’s all.
