I am very hep and kewl now 😀
I am a netizen and own property on the internet. Yes I am blowing my own trumpet shamelessly. I belong to a generation that can be called B.I. (Before Internet) and am adapting nicely to the A.I. (after internet) scenario and am feeling quite proud about it.
My friend and accomplice in this entire endeavour has been Mahjabeen of Studio M. I really admired the header that Mad Momma put up on her blog and so got in touch with Mahjabeen. I seriously toyed with the idea of uploading a pic of Praveen Babi walking out of water as my header, but was talked out of it. The argument my family used was creative to say the least
1. You are not Praveen Babi (I know I know)
2. You dont look good in a bikini (Yeah I know, snarl, shut the fuck up)
3. Every time you see the blog it will make you want to race to the gym and bust your ass trying to look like her (sigh! you win, who needs that kind of competition anyway)
So Mahjabeen, who patiently waited for my final instructions got together with me and we settled for a header having me weaving the web with my hands and draping it on the W, Kid#1 in a pilot get up on the runway, Kid#2 (the engineer) with his mechanical gears as a background on the top and the footer has DIL with very arty background as she is the artistic one (interior designer no less) on my web page.
A very big thank you to Mahjabeen who succesfully interpreted my airy, vague, and often incomprehensible suggestions and gave them a concrete visual format. It has been a wonderful experience interacting with you, my dear. I have also been enriched by knowing her, she is so polite and approachable. My mommy would have loved you my dear and would have told me ‘Why cant you be like her?”
I have told my sons that if they dont behave, I’ll put baby pics of them in the nude or dressed in girlie frocks for all eternity on my web page! After all Mere paas Maa …. oops sorry …. Mahjabeen hai.
I had bought my domain a month or so ago and now the domain had to be shifted on the server. I swear it was like the final stages of pregnancy. It took more than 24 hours for the move to be accomplished, and guess who held my hand and told me :
Take it easy Ritu and
- Inhale through your nose 2-3-4, exhale through your mouth 2-3-4.
- Make sure that you don’t do it too fast.
- When the contractions become stronger again, and this technique doesn’t seem to cut it anymore, this is what you do:
- Hee-hee, hee-hee, hee-hee, hee-hee
Yes, it was Mahjabeen helping me every step of the way. I truly made a new friend.
Relax, wander about, enjoy the new digs and let me know what you think of it. Feedback is always appreciated.
I am a big girl now, I can take it.
If I cant, I’ll just find an image of you, get Mahjabeen to photoshop it and dedicate an entire post on you. Hehehehehe After all Mere paas Maa … hajabeen Hai
