Hiatus

"For some time...
I've been drifting, I didn't realise uptil now.
A slap in the face
A bucket of cold water at 4:50 AM
Rapid respiration at 5:45 AM
Priorities. We need them
Phantom limb, this
I don't know what I must do
But I know I'd better figure that out now
Or regret never doing this for the rest of my life
Thank you, I know I will not be missed"

I applaud. But now, you have work to do. Go ahead. Finish it.
"Thank you. I, uh, we,... we will be back in a little while."
Hopefully in time for Season 3 of Prison Break.
"I hope so too, there's so much to learn."
I hope I'm not hearing things.

"We are, and that's what is worrying me."

Varathanampareiyu!

"Sometimes, you can speak several lanugages with the same language."
Really, how does one do that?

"Let's peruse, shall we? The pro-noun-see-ay-shun may be a little tricky, but it's like playing with TNT, once you get the hang of it, you get the hang off it."
And the best part here is, no risks of getting your head blown off. Or, being a danger to the people around you.
"Exactly! So, what's happening here is a conversation I had with my dear cousin's wife, technically my sister-in-law, but for all practical purposes, ex-cousin (that's ex = extended family). She happened to come online last evening, and I chose that moment to go full throttle on the Malluspeak in Engleesh, the developments were quite fascinating!"

Let's peruse, very very slowwwwly:

(Disclaimer: Knowledge of both Engleesh and Mallu as pre-requisites. Or, if you're just looking for funny-sounding names to call people, then you've come to the right place!)

"At this point I went offline and headed down to the basement for my (from yesterday) daily rundown on the events of the day.

"Here's a little glossary:
chiri - smile (yes that's my smile she's talking about! ha!)
chechi - sister (often appended to name of a elder sister, conveys respect whether desired or otherwise!)
pinneyum - later, after some time (this could imply several eons from now, depending on the context of use)
irrikunoo - that's how it is/sit/here
(context-based, multipurpose word for all reasons and seasons. Come to think of it, can also be used to imply "I am standing here")"

Any other words we should add to this?
"Nah! I'll probably have to explain each and every sentence to you then, remember I spoke in Manglish the whole time!"
Darn you! Wait, there are two or three stray Engleesh ones breaking in there.
"Ah, well, you can't avoid those, can you?"
Well, I suppose you're right.

"We'll just leave whoever comes across this, to figure the rest of it out!"
And if they have anything to add, they can find the commenting system for themselves.

Sheri, manasilayi!

Clinton Desperadoe

"Desperado, why don't you come to your senses...
Don't you draw the King of Primaries, lass,
He'll beat you when he's able,
The King of smear campaigns is your best bet..."

What the hell was that about?
"Just this amazingly browbeating email campaign that HRC has started off on Obama not being as much of a victor as everybody thinks he is, and that's followed by the best response to such a campaign from the BO camp."
Let's see now!

(few minutes pass...)

Hoho! That was so funny! I actually feel like ROTFLing myself!
"But you know you can't."
Just like somebody knows they can't do something? ;-)
"Yes, they who can't do something, must accept that they can't do something."
Hillary in this instance, right?
"Yes."

But there are other options, besides stuff like this, why can't she be sincere and appeal to the people that it is in their best interest to cast their votes in favour of her?
"Well, I don't know, I think it's a bit too late for that myself."
She's losing it, totally... This is a sign of desperation.
"Hence, I sing... I apologize Kenny."

So, if you were an American cit. and you really gave a hoot about all this, and you did find some time in which you weren't blogging, digging, procrastinating, or being depressed, or Digging, or just sitting around listening to TWiT, or Podrunning, or Facebooking, or worrying about the recession and what it meant from your life in the next few months, or just whining pointlessly, who'd you vote for?
"Whew! that's a lot of ifs!"
Details details. Now tell me.

"Well, I'd probably vote Mr. O. His outsourcing policies may not mean much good for my employment sit-choo-ay-shun, but hell! what the US of A needs is a President with some amount of balance, some sense of what is right, and what is wrong, and the knowledge that the decisions they make affect the lives of not only the people in the country, but also to some extent the people across the world."
So, they must know that everybody is connected to everybody, regardless of their cellphone service being crappy, (or presence of said phone).

"It sums it up. I look at Obama, and I see that kind of a man: a person whose origins are from as far off as Kenya, an impoverished state, with not many moments of glory to be proud of. And now, we see Obama, a man with Kenyan roots nonetheless, running for the one of the most powerful offices in the world."
It gives us all hope: when your parents say "Well, aren't you my little President!" we don't have to just smile and hope that they don't come to expect too much of us. We run for President. But the important thing is, knowing that you're not just running for some title, and a nice office, you're running so that they day you take the oath, you are in a position to change the world, make history (and what could be better than a page on Wikipedia?).

"But power deludes people, if you can be powerful and do the right thing, then you're going to be remembered as one of the very few people who've done so."So, let's make us some diggstory!
"(smiles)"

Post Posting:
"Okay, this Digg blogging thing just doesn't cut it!"
'Cause it don't know nothing 'bout some carriage returns?
"Yes, the damn thing just strung the entire conversation together in one paragraph, removing said car. ret.s"
Maybe the API needs fixing?
"Oi, Kevin, I've found some stuff that needs fixing!"
So, you've never done this before have you?
Nope, I've never blogged something directly from Digg, though I've thought about doing so.

Hit up the link below to see more on the story.

The FEMail Campaign and Subsequent Rebuttal | Digg It
Come to think of it, what music is this, that thunders, booms and moves!
"I think you're listening to too much house, change the tunes on the iTunes, Mr. iGrooves"
Now that you mention it, I think I'll stick to it, till I have an epileptic fit,
"You know, I think you're full of shit!"

Linear Lalalooloo

"I can't really recall, why I write these words down"
'Cause your forehead is lined with some nasty frowns
"I lay me down"
It is time to go into town!

"Lines. What do we do without those darned lines,"
Parking lines,
"Ticket fines,"
Bill dates,
"Heavenly Gates,"
Pearlescent hues,
"Dinnerly dews,"

I know not what we do, without those darned lines.
Pencil along scale,
Sea shore in a gale,
A drunken man's path home,
A shoe worn down to be very bone,

Let's draw a line at that,
For I shall not have anybody left to live for, if I continue,
With this self-vaporizing dish-gaoooo!

Bagfulls of Karma

"Tired, unable to think/"
Did you just throw up in the kitchen sink/
"Please I beg no more/"
What were you doing to throw up so?

"I was stuffing my face and enjoying it too"
Oh boo hoo! Get yourself into a program!
"No way, they're all a sham!"
Shazaam! You're fulla flim flam, pick pack paggedy wag,
"Give a dog a bone?"
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.

"Whatchoo gonna do with 'dem bags, fool?"
Gonna bag me some karma.
"You can't bag karma, dumbass!"
No, but you can bag some Instant Karma on your facebook!

"Bah, you're a douchebag!"
No, I'm a doucebag fulla karma man!
