slate-um chalk-um :D
And so i have finally taken my best friends advice and decided to blog....and dedicate every meaningless bit of crap that i post here, to her :D
she has been telling me to do this for ages, so what better time than now...its her birthday on the 16th.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWATI!!! :D
(surprise surprise!!... now u know what your gift is!!)
and now for the 'weird' blog name that i have.. slateumchalkum is supposed to be pronounced as slate-um chalk-um which is slate and chalk in Malayalam... it took me 2 days to come up with this name(pretty long time for a pretty lousy name you'd think) after the humble slate and chalk that almost all of us must've used long back at an age where we confused our b's and d's and could not spell 'elefant' right; the black flat scribble pad on which mistakes where forgiven(hint hint!! :P). i chose to name my blog just that, for most of the stuff here will be scribblings (obviously not literally but don't blame me later if most of the stuff here don't make much sense,.. its a slate... ill try erasing it!! :P ).. and to show that the slate and chalk will not lose its charm despite the advent of the latest magic boards..
and like most beginners, i don't promise to be regular.. but will try my best to come up with something now and then..
until my next post...
