Moving on

I've loved "spelling it out" here (and coming up with that name). I like writing. Even though i know no one's actually reading. I know this because the blogger stats page informs me that the traffic sources for the few page views are all very, not to get too technical,  spammy. But for some reason i like making sporadic posts here. I dont know why. Well, i do know why but uh lets not get into it. Plausible deniability and all that. So like the new year's gym resolutionaries, i've concluded that money might be the motivation i need to keep writing. Oh no, not actually getting paid for writing. I'm not so delusional. No, i'm going to pay the $12 a year to get meself a url minus the blogspot. And hopefully the financial aspect will keep homest and tapping away at the keyboard.
So, the url is:
I hope you will drop by.
Quick, what's 6*7?

That box labelled miscellaneous

I store old cards and notes in a sorted heap
Some contents make me smile and some weep
Some cute sticker-ed mail.
Some fodder for blackmail *
Some reminders of promises i did not keep.

* i'm waiting for one of my childhood correspondents to strike it rich and then ebay here i come :)

Why i still write here -or- yes,i hit refresh to up my page count

Yes, my blog's visitor count is one half.
But there's always the greed
Maybe someone will read
and maybe smile and, dare i hope, laugh
which means more than a visitor graph


So Britain is to exit the EU
The "Remain"s were too few
"Its just a farce"
"It'll never pass."
But the border is drawn anew.

Ganesh Chaturthi

They brought Ganpati to the neighborhood
It was, by far, the largest one they could.
The people came,
Chanted his name
Then danced to songs from Bollywood.

As Lady M said, "Out, damned spot"
Time has moved on; I have not.
Years down the line
I insist I am fine.
One day, the lie will get me caught.

ps- The title of this post is from my favorite joke in the movie, 'We're the millers'. From :

Scotty P's shitty tattoo in the movie We're The Millers.
Scotty P- "This tat here is my credo: No Ragrets"

David- " You have no ragrets? Not even a single letter?

Scotty P- "No Way Not Me"

Happy 100 to me!

I am a hundred posts old!
Some terrible; a few gold.
And now from this peak
The answer I seek:
Should I stay or should I fold?
