Melody zindabad!

The baton has passed. Melody – unbeatable queen of the kissing faux pas, has managed to do the unthinkable. Let me elucidate.

Until now, the couple of blog meets i have attended were small, last minute affairs and were, well, limited in their scope and reach. You had to know someone who knew the host(ess) else you had to be in touch with one of the avid bloggers (makes them sound like a species na!!!) for a phone call as to when and where they would be meeting….such as our last meeting at Hard Rock or the one before the at Mel’s house.

THIS TIME, Mel outdid herself by designing and posting a unique invitation on her blog. Now, the invitation was public and the onus shifted unto us common mortals to accept and show up and the chosen venue being Soul Fry.

The outcome – one hell of a blogger’s party! – No better way to describe it. It was chaotic madness and an organisational nightmare. Need verification?….just ask Sakshi! The poor girl couldn’t get anyone to sit. Nor could Ideasmith for that matter. Better sense prevailed and they both gave up!….lol

Melody assumed the role of the hostess and organized the venue (more like warned them). I believe that the early birds were evicted from the space that was reserved for us as they were making too much noise (gee, isnt that a surprise) and the rest of us were forced to sit outside (non airconditioned area). Luckily for us all, it was a beautiful evening!

I showed up along with Querida and TJ. Unfortunately we reached a li’l late and couldnt meet some of the early birds.

Just about managed to catch up with a leaving Shiju Thomas who absolutely refused to have a drink with us (what is this world coming to!). Nothing of THAT sort for Vulturo who was as usual in his element and blamed his current dry spell (of posts) on work (like that ever stopped us!). Got to meet Abhishek who interestingly enough was involved in India’s space programme. Ok Ok now thats a rather vague description…..ask him if you wanna know more!

There were a number of others who unfortunately i wasn’t able to talk to as i had to leave early. All in all, one hell of a meet. Congrats to Mel for seizing the initiative. Cheers!
