Tatkal, Rihanna and other irrelevant things

Posted on June 14, 2012

Well, this blog and its author have been missing in action lately. The author has also been missing action but that’s for another day. The fact is that the author has been really busy doing important things like running late for office, booking tatkal tickets by the dozen and deleting messages from HDFC Bank offering a personal loan thrice every hour on every phone in the author’s house. The author has also been sleeping like Sleeping Beauty on Benadryl. The last post on this blog was on the second day of April, a day before the author crossed an important milestone in his life. He breached the Brahmacharya barrier. But right after that, the author was caught in a space-time-dilation-thingy that has slowed the…

The year that was.

Posted on January 3, 2012

It is difficult to write about someone who hasn’t been nice to you. If 2011 was a person, I’d unfriend him on Facebook. If it were a movie, it’d be like Phir Herapheri, the worst possible sequel to something amazing. Since I have the memory of a demented caterpillar, I’d resort to Facebook timeline to recount the events of 2011, one accident at a time. January: In January, I added 30 friends on Facebook. Not that this makes any difference but I’d like to see how many ‘friends’ I am making on a monthly basis. Probably put that in an excel sheet and make a few graphs out of it. You know, just in case I lose my job and have to be a…

This is the 50th post on Tantanoo.com. And since this isn’t Kumar Sangakkara’s blog, this milestone will happen only once. So I want to mark it with a post. This post. Frankly, I didn’t think it’d last this long. But it has. So yay! Also, here are the posts I’ve enjoyed writing(or photoshopping) the most: – Tantanoo goes to T.Nagar – Philosoraptor goes to Bollywood – Draw the line – Life and times of Paul the Octopus – We are all Knuts (Isn’t a blog post really, more of an experience) and the most recent, Five types of Indian Erotic Story writers.   The last one has managed to get Tantanoo.com blocked at a few offices and has thus dug a deep hole in…

Mera pehla pehla kaam

Posted on March 4, 2011

Today I completed a year at work. *raucous applause* *applause fades* One year at a real job. Phew. I don’t need to use the words ‘Social Media Evango-anthropo-enthuso-logist’ on my resume anymore. Neither do I need to mention that I am the ‘Chief Something’ of Something on my Linkedin profile. Or use the word Entrepreneur in every mail that I send to reinforce the illusion of doing something. Fake pride aside, I am really happy that I have a job and that I haven’t been kicked out of it with-in an year. I love my company and I am proud of it’s rich and varied heritage. I shall always strive to be worthy of it. I shall give respect to my parents.. Oh wait.…

The Dark Blog Rises.

Posted on February 2, 2011

Friends, Romanians and Spammers, Welcome to Tantanoo.com. Together we’ll bring down governments, grammar and general knowledge. In that order. Few pre-world-domination notices: – I am still not very happy with the template so minor denting-painting work will continue. – Also, I am going to import some comics from Comicry here, just to kick start the comic binness. – There will be ads on this blog from time to time, depending on how much money I owe my room-mate. – There are surprise pages on this blog to surprise you. They’ll appear and disappear depending on how good they feel about me. DON’T PANIC. – Like a newbie eve-teaser, you can now rate everything on this blog. EVERYTHING! – The website can now be translated…
