Thanks, OJ!

The OJ Awards For (Mostly) Superlative Blogger Behavior!

To Dipali: The Maximum Traffic Driver Award!

I'm definitely honoured to get this award, but a bit puzzled too, since I really do wonder which traffic I drove where, and when!
Sorry for being a slowcoach, OJ. (This was given to me on the 1st of July, OJ's blog's birthday.)

I do remember mailing some friends about Banno's brilliant reviews of Ghajini and Love 2050.

I wonder what other traffic I drove where, but I suppose I must have, if OJ thinks I have!
It is definitely wonderful coming across some new blogs which make you say, "Oh wow! This I like."

In the spirit of this award, I hereby direct you to some blogs I discovered recently.
(They may have been around forever, but since I just found them, they are new!)

Carnimire's Coffee Rings Everywhere
Ronita's Life's Like That
Starry eyed's Things do not change...we change
Wordjunkie who has emerged as a fine cartoonist as well as a brilliant writer. I've been reading her for a while, but this new avatar deserves a special mention, methinks.
Our old friend Mummyjaan is back, after a long hiatus. It's great reading her again.

Mamma mia! Me a mamma? said...

It's sweet of you to call me your old friend; thank you.

Although, after reading Orange Jammies' post, it doesn't appear that she intended for the pyjam-, er, I mean, for the awards to be passed on - this is an extra special award that seems to have been meant and designed uniquely for you, Dipali :). Congrats and enjoy.

(Even though the comment is getting longer, I must add that I read the Ghajini review when you sent the link and I thought it was *hilarious* - and this was before I saw the movie. I have since then *tried* to see the movie, but abandoned the attempt quickly. Banno's review kept popping up in my head. How did it (the movie) turn out to be such a 'hit'?)

@starry eyed: Yes, it's such an original award:)
@m4: Thanks, dear.
@mummyjaan: Of course you are an old friend! I'm not passing on this award to anybody, merely directing some traffic here and there!
The only good thing about Ghajini was that it inspired such an amazing review!

Banno said...

Dipali, you are a sweetheart. And for that alone, you deserve the award.
