On Pippa, Anne and Tumblelogs

What’s with the title? Well, just that I’ve officially given up on thinking up nice titles for my posts. Given. Up.

I’m smitten with Anne of Green Gables. And the last line in the book is from “Pippa’s Song”, by Robert Browning –

The year’s at the spring,
And day’s at the morn;
Morning’s at seven;
The hill-side’s dew-pearl’d;
The lark’s on the wing;
The snail ‘s on the thorn;
God’s in His heavenβ€” All’s right with the world!

Apart from certain issues like the lack of crown jewels in my jewellery box, the absence of, not just a bright red Maserati in my porch, but the porch itself; and sundry other items of a similar nature, all’s right with the world, indeed!

The last bit in today’s broadcast: I have finally invaded the Tumblr space. Check out: http://thoughtprocess.tumblr.com

I’m not sure you can leave comments there (small mercies), so come right back here and tell me if I can still put off that trip to my shrink.

P.S: Very apt title for the post, no?

  2. THIS is uncanny!
    Uncanny this is!
    Uncanny to say the least!
    Uncanny is too mild a word!

    Head over to Pixie Dust and you’ll see what I mean.
    Pippa help me but first the swizz army knife with witnwisdumb and now Browning with me.

    Tell me. Do you read minds? Or peek into the draft section of other poor bloggers? Can you teach me how to do that? Pleasepleaseplease?

  4. Sharan – Exactly! I’ve given up on that also πŸ™‚

    Nithya – *gives a hi-5* cmon, the only reason we talk about books is ‘coz of this: yaam petra inbam pera ivvaiyagam! πŸ™‚ so dont complain. and start your own library and offer me a lifetime free membership πŸ™‚

    Princess – I swear, I don’t know how this happens!!! It’s just a coincidence, trust me *evil look on face*

    Nithya – OMG!!! One part of me wants that pdf, the other part (which is the angelic part) says I shouldn’t do that to J.K.Rowling 😦 maybe you can send me that pdf and the bad-me can start reading it while the good-me looks for a reason not to read it πŸ™‚ Thaaaaanks, I owe you one!
