Ever Been On A High?

  • May. 6th, 2005 at 1:05 AM
Over Stand

If you click here, you'll be taken to the page that actually contains this image.

As you'll duly notice, I was the sixteenth person to 'face the jury' of enquiry conducted by the famous Steffen Konrath himself! :) I never realized it at the time (about two years ago if my memory serves me well), but I'm not such an idiot after all. lol! It's heartening to see that I'm better off than I originally thought I was. It's also mighty strange (in a weird sort of way - obviously!) that I never really understood the size of the knot that I was dealing with at the time. I still don't, actually! Nevertheless, I'm aware of a distinct glowing sensation under my skin. It's purely psychological, I know, but it's a nice feeling. :o)

According to this link, I'm one of the people in the driving seats of innovation or creativity.... It's perhaps self inflated to think highly of it, even going as far as to broadcast it over my Journal like this, but heck, I'm on a high right now and nothing's taking it away from me. :) There's this inner urge to publicize this, I feel like letting the whole world know. It's self centered and pathetic, I know. Haha!

Some of you might be able to recognize me in the picture posted there, but for the newbies reading this, that's what I looked like when I had just started sprouting a mustache and chin-whiskers were a thing of fairytales. :o) How we grow, how we change, how we realize things that stared at us point-blank! It's a mystery to me! And yet, it's pleasing.

Now what's all this rant about you ask? Have you ever had a high? This is better than that! Trust me! :o)


P.S.: All links on this page are click-safe. you click a link, it opens in a new window.... Feel free to click all you like. :)

I know ,it's shocking at first. But soon, the feeling of elatedness just ebbs away.

I've found: Excitement is short-lived.... Misery is prolonged

They say that a lot of good comes to people at the same time.... When their guardian angels fly overhead.... All I figure from that is we either have the same omnipotent guardian angel (Unlikely since guardian angels are'nt truly omnipotent) or we're each guarded by different ones....


But at the end of the year, we're still both Leo's. :o)

Barnacles grow under the prows of longboats.... So do megalithic heroes grow from freak incidents and tales....

We are'nt what we seem to be. What we appear to be, quite often is merely a miscalculation of our selves....

Some of us look good on the surface, but are'nt so on the inside.... Some of us are good on the inside, but no one notices....

That's life.... That's truth.... Ofcourse, it all depends on who speaketh, but still, it's my truth anyway....

Brilliant. Congratulations. You will have to explain this whole survey/study sometime. :)

We're meeting on the 15'th anyway. :) Hope you don't plan on bunking that meeting agreement. :)

Re: flash
Thankyou, I hardly realized it, but when I checked back on my little 'flash' thingy, I noticed some errors. Unforgivable really, but at the time, I never realized how big this thing was, and I never re-read what I'd written before giving my reply to Steffan.... Funny how dumb we are as kids. and considering this was roughly two years ago, it's shocking! :o)

Re: flash
Yeah, it really does. :)

It's strange how, when I look back at myself, however far back it might be, I always feel I was dumber than I am today. :oP

You are'nt very good at camoflaging flattery. :"> *blushes!*

Re: flash
hehe....after all i'm ur fan why i shud i camouflage my appreciation(i prefer this word for flattery....coz its actually this)

yeah sometimes i feel everything shud be done in a tactical way but the next moment i feel shud we be devicing a strategy for petty things life?? (esp when it makes someone happy or atleast feel better)

agreed....i'm not so good at camouflaging and circumlocutin etc.but i'm happy this way coz i dont endup taxing my mind for simpler things.

Re: flash
That comment totally takes the cake! Your 'appreciation' is greatly appreciated (for lack of a better word). :">

As to circumlocution, it's something I pride myself on. I know, it's not a great trait, but I find a kind of seclusion from the rest of the world by veiling my statements, leaving a bit of ambiguity to the mists....

I've been told often, and again, that it's not a comforting phenomena to be subjected to it, but yet, I linger on, I'm bad at giving out my thoughts without screening them behind a thick curtain of deceptive (perhaps misdirecting) thoughts. At the end, there's always someone who can dig through the murk and who sees what I'm really trying to say. In that, I hold you high in my esteem, not many can do it, not many have.. :o)

I'm honored.

Re: flash

Re: flash
That pleasures me gracefully indeed, thank you.

Ummm.... Not particularly seriously. Have written for a few newspapers and magazines, have done a ton of private writing too.... But it was all for fun. I love writing. :">

As to big accomplishments.... Well, I guess I'm not one of the productive kind, I seem to give up on any task I decide to give my attention to, even before I have a chance to succeed.

I have a young heart though.... Thank goodness. :">

Ofcourse naught. lol!

Usually, when I'm being all Sarchy and stuff, the victim is blissfully unaware of the fact. :)

You're safe, I was trying to be honest. :)

okie dokie. cos I was about to give a very stern look. ;|
kidding :)

The victim is blissfully unaware huh? Sheesh Jim, you are constantly complementing yourself. :P

joking again... you know what I think of you Jim. Only good things... so far .. :D

what else is new with you anyway?

actually I wanted to know if you've travelled much before... have you ever been to the Middle East?

Haha! It's true that I give myself more credit than I'm worth or than I deserve, but it gives me this tiny tickle in the tummy that I can't help but remain addicted to. :)

you know what I think of you Jim. Only good things... so far .. :D

Okai, that means I'll have to be in my best behavior when you're around. :P Impression ko spoil nahin karna cahiye! :oP

New.... :) Nothing new as such, I'm just turning a lot more creative of late, Let's hope I have time to make use of my urges. :P

Yes, I've traveled a lot, but no where near the Middle East, I'm a national traveler. Even within the country, I've never been beyond Sikkim in the north east and Jammu in the north.

the best of your behaviour...

good good.

ofcourse you wouldn't want to spoil the impression... hmmm..

Creativity is interesting... you can make it a part of your life ... :)

Oh all right. I'd like to travel around India some time.

By the way, if you check out some of my comments to the people at the top, you'll see, it's not really such a big deal.... It's more like a small good-thing that's graced me. Nothing recurring. :) One isolated incident does'nt make the man. ;o)

**tries hard to hold flood back, but in the end, succumbs to a powerful 'flash-blush'**

Yeah, some idle brain waves remain standing, no matter what comes or goes, some thoughts were meant to remain untouched.... I guess we all have a flash in us.... We just don't try to explain them in words....

lol! If there's enough demand, sure! We "should" have one on the 15'th, but I'm sure it's got nothing to do with baring my soul. Hehe!

Sadly, not much of cyberabad is interested in knowing. Most of the people demanding to be given more information are other LJ's and non-LJ'er people. :oP
