More difficulties…

February 9, 2012

Just when I thought I could start accessing LJ posts again, and comment, my laptop started giving trouble, and would not connect to the net at all. I am still not used to the two-finger typing on the blessed iPad…and in any case, for some reason, I am unable to upload any photos through it.

And, of course, the spam comments on LJ continue. I get handbag adverts, I get junk… The meaningful debates and discussions seem to be a thing of the past. The stats say about 130 unique visitors….but where is the conversation? Not happening.

I had a lovely trip to Bandipur, where we had the memorable sighting of the very elusive Mouse Deer, and, of course the mother tiger and three of her four cubs. I do have some nice pics to share…but can’t share them, just yet!

I cam back and am volunteering to show the children of Headstart School around Lalbagh…that was on Tuesday the 7th, and today.

I participated in a wildlife quiz conducted by Karnataka Quiz Association, and though Anand and I didn’t win, we had a great time and got some nice vouchers!

I hope yo get my laptop back soon, and also sort out the issues on the iPad, soon….
Life goes on while Chandan repairs my laptop…. Off to Nannaj, in Maharashtra for the weekend

The Brand Equity Quiz, Bangalore Round

April 2, 2008

http://bangalore.metblogs.com/2008/04/01/the-brand-equity-quiz-in-bangalore/

What I did not say, very modestly, is that I answered an audience question and got a Fosters’ tee shirt and a thermos flask and a 500-rupee gift voucher…and 500 rupee gift vouchers for my entire row as well! Many of my friends from QuizFamilies had come as well, so we were a happy group!

These cheap thrills give so much pleasure!

And the question? “What the Hindi word that’s entered the OED, that means a tip for services appreciated over and above the ordinary?” No one in the hall knew this as it is rather a “Brit”, archaic word….

Any guesses, anyone? Well, I expect most of you to get it, though.

Sad, I wanted to play SOME prank on you guys yesterday, but the day was an unstructured fiasco from morning to evening…the day played a trick on ME!

It was a fun evening….I do wish I had even an outside chance at one of these quizzes! But as I say, others’ intellects flower, mine seems to cauliflower!
