Three years and two days later....

.... the basic premise of this blog i.e., that I am no Superman, has not changed at all and as I mentioned then, you can still call me Superman-ian if you want to. What's happened gradually these past few years is that this blog has become a part of my daily life, so much that my much lamented trait of forgetting birthdays has expanded to include this blog as well. Hence let me go ahead as usual and issue a note of belated (third) birthday greetings to this blog.

One more happening of note also went past unnoticed by me. This post is my 301st post. It was perhaps fitting that my 300th post was also the first one to be featured on Desipundit. This past year was eventful in a lot of respects, but I don't think I am anywhere close to leaving my little cubbyhole in cyberspace.

Now, we turned three a couple of days ago. Apparently the time between the second and third birthday is called the terrible twos. I did not know that last year, but along those same lines, this coming year could be called the trashy threes. Now with 300 published posts, Blogger seems to hit some growing pangs. But that's for another post for which some knowledgable minds would have to be consulted. So, at least till then, one shall continue churning out the trash that one so cleverly disguises as regular programming. All those of you who come here to get your fix of trash, do come back for more. And yah, for those of you who are wondering, that is *my* trash can.

I think I love this trash more than other trash that trashes what it thinks is trash but is necessarily not trash unless its standard of trash is elevated at such a level that other trash that likely looks like trash is not seen as trash due to the bias of that trash.

Thus Spake Visu :-)

kalakiteenga aNTi Superman(i like to call u this way)....

good job aNTi...last yearum idhay dhan sonnen nu nenaikaran....:)

RPM said...

Congratulations! Three years, eh? Wow, that is long!

anantha said...

Thennavan: Had to read this description of trash thrice before I could come to a conclusion that the trash that you were trashing, might not exactly be my trash. Am I right about the trashed trash? LOL...

Me: Nandri ba :)

anantha said...

rpm: Thanks....I like to think that it has been a short ride so far. :)

alpha said...

Happy Birthday!!!!

Is that a used condom I see in that trash can? Congrats on getting action Anti! Hopefully you managed multiples of three in that regard!

Shobha said...

Porume modesty and all....trash and all...kuch bhi....Wishing you a very happy bloggie birthday :D

rajesh said...

Change the title to
I am no Kuppa-man!
Regularity and keeping it terse,would make the 4th year more enjoyable.
-Raapi

anantha said...

Shobha: Thanks.. Modesty nahi tho, aur kya? One's posts are read mostly by one's self and few other jobless people and our posts do not add to web traffic in the form of email forwards. So my surmise that it is trash is true after all. But I still am proud, cos it is my trash and my trash smells better than anybody else's.
LOL.. I can almost hear you saying "Porume" with that typical Bombaiyya-Tam-Mallu accent. :D

Shashi: Thanx dude...

BB: It's working now. I added the link and then republished the archives completely. I think that since I last published my archives completely, the filenames have become shorter. And the links on posts dont get updated. So once i linked and then republished the link got screwed up.

Paru: Errr.. Thanks..I just used my rusty, but still good enough, ERC (Explain with Reference to Context) skills. I could not figure out what that is :D

Harish: Thanx machi... Did you get the email i sent a couple of weeks ago?

Arun: Thanx da!

Hardu: To quote Yoda, "Every long journey, for, new beginning, there is". I have gone just a short distance. But I intend to go a long way for sure.

TF: I should think so. Have been seeing you around in the blogosphere for a long time now. Silent readers we were, for a long time, till the sight of rowdys running amok in the blogosphere, best exemplified by Alpha and her comments made me lose my innocence.

Alpha: I am at present undertaking an experiment. Suitable answers for your caustic remarks shall be provided at the end of the experiment after the ubiquitous "LHS = RHS" and "Hence Proved"! But I promise to send you a few pounds of sugar and ghee, should that last line come true. Am I allowed to choose?

anantha said...

Raapi: Keeping it terse - Hmmm.. not my strength dude. Will try to improve on that count...Thanx :)

Sriks said...

More cricket please starting #301 :)

VC said...

Anti oru post potta nooru post potta maadhiri! Good show!

alpha said...

choose what da kanna? the type of women or the condom make? seriously, I dont want to control your life to that degree. happy passing caustic (WHAT?!) remarks from afar.

anantha said...

Alpha: My last reply to you is turning out to be recursive. Refer to it :p

VC: Naan thalaivan illa.. verum thondan!

Sriks: Thanx. But surely you mean #302. Will gladly oblige.

Nilu said...

ippa ennandra?

and can you do an analysis of dhoni's "wagon wheel"...evil grin

anantha said...

Nilu: Definite a panren. I will do a comparison of him and Afridi as well, if you please. Ellam thaane ullendhu varadhu dhaan, just like puke!! :p

B o o said...

Congrats dude! Any luck with WA's aNTi Valentines day campaign? :)

anantha said...

Boo: danks ma :) To answer your specific question, this is my schedule for the day. Get up, do stuff, come to work at 9, go home at 7, hit the gym for sometime and crash with Crash that Netflix should hopefully deliver this afternoon. And get up tomorrow and do the same thing (minus "Crash"). *whistles the opening bars of "Maya maya maya...Ellam maya.. chaaya chaaaya chaaya.. ellam chaaya"!

Alpana said...

Heppy therd birthdayji. May this blog have many more.

anantha said...

Alpana: Thank ya :) So you have pictures up?

WA said...

aaaha aNTi despite me directing all the single and desperate ones this way, you didn't get lucky-aa?

anantha said...

WA: Doesn't that say a lot about your re-directing? :p Chey, Total waste!

anantha said...

LG: Ellam oru punch kaaga dhaan :D Looks like I might need to talk to you. Will do so. Send you an email or call you over the weekend.

Boo: No, Thalaivarin arumai thondan naan. When time comes, just one will suffice.

WA: I realized that ;) However I have found that u are of no use. So I did not wanna antagonize someone who just might be of use laterz, by sending a few important visitors my way if I humor her.

CM: Enna naan sollaradhu seri dhaane?

capriciously_me said...

uma, i am still waiting for that foto ;)

GratisGab said...

capriciously_me said...

anti, enaku pidichavangala obvsly indha pakkam vida maaten buddy! i wish them well ;)

WA said...

aNTi, sorry what was that you said about antagonizing people :))

Anand said...

Way to go !!!! Would have prefered the Anit in Superman costume instead of the thrash bin.

Keep blogging. you are blogrolled.

anantha said...

Anand: Thanx :) But I'm no Superman! :D And moreover, my way = undies inside, pants outside and absolutely no tights!

WA: I said, I dont wanna antagonize people who will be useful in the future :)

CM: Refer to my previous comment!

Gabby: Nah..aNTi ab bhi chota bacha hai. How you doing btw? :)

Alpana said...

Yo, one pix up in duplicate, dont ask me why, everything's going twice nowadays. Now go visit Majuli!

anantha said...

Alpana: Ya. Saw the twin pics last night and was going to ask whats up. :p
But was dropping off to sleep at 2 am when I saw it so left it for today.

Hiren said...

From the number of comments that you keep getting, I wish I could write such trash consistently.

Oops, I meant elaborate...

Shobha said...

Aiyyo...that was me :|

anantha said...

Shobha: The palakkad accent :D

Tarun: Will do...

Hiren: The jury is still out on whether your comment was a compliment. I am thinking it is :)
Thanks.. but hey, one man's trash is another's treasure :D

MellowDrama said...

Congrats on turning three, will chk out your blog more often

Nandhu said...

Hey, u are three. Happy birthday. an year in the life of a dog is equal to 8 years in a human. an year of blogging like this equal to a few million years in a human.
Congrats

visithra said...

wow congrats on ur 3rd year ;)

Shashi Rajasekaran said...

congrats dude..keep those words pouring

J said...

Supermanian? lmao

anantha said...

J: Yup. Making angrez log to pronounce "Subramanian" is quite a task. So, when someone found out it rhymes, it stuck!

Shashi: Thanx da. Hey, btw. Have been out of town these past two weekends da.

Visit: Thank ya. Btw, heard about your new nick somewhere..
Niceeee :D

phoenix: Danks... You have a nice blog too. Will come on there more often.

Mellow: Thank you :) Keep coming back, comment as often as you can and me reciprocate too :)

J said...

But ur name isnt Subramanian

Amethyst said...

Three years eh? So anti have you become a pro yet!!

anantha said...

Amethyst: Nah, I'm a great fan of the core competency concept, the horses for courses logic. So I'd never dare to leave my day job, more so cos I have been working only for 3 months now.

J: The name's Subramanian... Ananthanarayanan Subramanian!

Amethyst said...

I can almost visualize you saying "elementary Mr.J" ala our friendly detective...yeah yeah he never actually used the phrase in his stories.. so what?

Amethyst said...

no points for guessing y i didn't add "my dear" in the phrase (was of course referring to d.n.a)

Hardu said...

The name's Subramanian... Ananthanarayanan Subramanian!


That sounded like "The name's Bond.. James Bond".

anantha said...

Amethyst: Holmes..Nice guy, though I don't approve of some of his practices. He likes his opium, and smoking is quite not my thing. And... :p

Hardu: That was precisely my intention, cos if Daniel Craig can play Commander Bond, I believe I can too!

Hardu said...

anti full points to you for the (non) smoking thing. :)

D.N.A. said...

Anti brother, very very belated wishes on 3 year completion.

/* I heard my name getting mentioned, & I'm like, vaeli, vaetti, onan.....*/

anantha said...

D.n.a: Thanx bro.. danks...
I am like "Siripavargal sirkattum adhu aanava sirippu"!

Hiren said...

Reminds me of a Joke-Boxer Muhammad Ali to Airhostess- Supermen do not need seatbetlts.

Reply- Supermen do not need airplanes either.

Hardu said...

Why are you all deleting your posts? Alpha deleted one of her posts and you also deleted your latest one. What's happening?

anantha said...

Hardu: I just remembered one cardinal rule, i.e. a rule whose standards are set very low for me - i.e. If you don't have anything to say, keep quiet! I realised that last night and deleted it. As for the other instance that you have mentioned, I thought u'd know something.

thennavan said...

Naanum kekkanumnu irunden. "Athithi Devo Bhava" enna aachchunnu :-) it seemed to have some promise but now it has become like a canned Kollywood film :-)

Hardu said...

How would I know something? Did I say/do something which lead to that action?

anantha said...

Hardu: No no. I don't know what happened. I just thought mebbe you knew.

Thennavan: Thalaivar padam Jaggubhai madhiri nu sollungo ;)

Me said...

hey superman

alpha said...

YEAH WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DESPO POST WHERE YOU WERE CLAMOURING FOR PRAISES?

Oops..need to turn off my caps lock. that post had some potential for people like me to take your trip . oh well, thats ok..you do give us all plenty avenues anyway.

anantha said...

Alpha: What despo post? :O
