Bye bye, and back to earth

A few years from now, when posterity comes ambling around, I will be known as the guest blogger at Sepia Mutiny that got away. Got away with not visiting the North Dakota headquarters ever, got away with missing the traumatic initiation party (I definitely didnÂ’t want to be paddled by a guy, even a guy with great hair) that the mutineers reportedly throw and got away with maintaining the laziest guest blogging schedule on Sepia Mutiny ever, because I had Siddhartha to cover for me. Not too lazy though – at this rate I could’ve hit Manish’s weekly post count in just under three years, and that’s way more than most bloggers can claim.

But then, like all good things (please, keep the snickering down, it hurts me when you do that) this little stint must come to an end as well, and I must now go back to my own blog, where the sitemeter stats will be much easier to monitor. Thank God for that.

So here it is: Thank you all for a great time, and good bye.

  1. Awww that was short. You will be missed. Mutineers I personally request for more chick guest bloggers. Not that Miss ANNA doesn’t have you all covered with her oneself but it’s starting to look like a boys club around here :-) I vote for Nina Paley.

  3. I think the idea of new female guest bloggers is wonderful, but perhaps we should threadjack a less personal comment section. ;) Karthik, I know it’s probably because you didn’t want to get paddled, but I wish you had come to the bunker. Not just because I really wanted to meet you, also because they made me wait at the entry with a flower garland for days. “No, really…today’s the day! He’s moving in and you have to welcome him!” Sigh. I should have known something was up when they laughed each time I walked away…

  4. Aw shucks, but I’m not Sepia.

    Oh but Nina you are you are…and the boys and girls of SM would definitely agree…you are a honorary Sepia. Actually Neha of Currylingus rocks too…

  5. Thanks for the hilarious quips, snide remarks, and insightful meditations on everything mundane and profane. Loved the Thaipusam artile too.

  6. Karthik, much like my beloved 30-day MTA pass has gotten screwed by the short month. Boo!

  7. sorry for joining in on the hijacking of the thread.

    karthik, loved the posts and sad to see you leave. too short of a stint, man.

  8. I love your blog! This is where I come to do some serious thought provoking reading…sometimes I even have to have my really smart friends decipher your posts for me….:P heady stuff….not sepia here, but go to India once a year, love India, and many things Indian. I also hate them too, just so you know I really know :P

  9. listens only to Illayaraja and his wife, Lavanya.

    I like it ;) . Quite interestingly, I had a colleague once named Lavanya, who moved to Florida too (after marriage). Keep on blogging.

  10. Karthik, much like my beloved 30-day MTA pass has gotten screwed by the short month. Boo!

    LOL Desidancer. Not surprisingly, Black History Month is also on February, while March, the seemingly longest month to get across, is Latino History Month. Or maybe it was May. Someone correct me.

  11. Karthik, much like my beloved 30-day MTA pass has gotten screwed by the short month. Boo!

    Oh please. Cry me a river. You could be screwed out of a birthday which is a lot worse. ;)

    Nice having you on board Karthik. If you ever divulge our secret handshake I shall hunt you to the ends of this Earth.

  12. Nice job, Karthik. :-)

    Not just because I really wanted to meet you, also because they made me wait at the entry with a flower garland for days. “No, really…today’s the day! He’s moving in and you have to welcome him!”

    were they trying to marry you off? ;-)

  13. Thanks a lot, folks. And though the February was short excuse sounds nice, I was given a thirty day run (and an extra day through strenous mendication). And dear mean SM intern, you’ve now managed to fill me with enormous quantities of regret. Please don’t tell me you are not male. Please.

  14. brother k,

    it was nice sharing a bed with you. you only snored from time to time and never hogged the sheets.

    i’m about to deploy the “february is the shortest month” excuse myself today, but i’m putting together a final salvo… stay tuned y’all.

    peace & respects karthik, catch you out there in the discursive space

    siddhartha

  15. Oh please. Cry me a river. You could be screwed out of a birthday which is a lot worse. ;)

    I actually have a guju friend with a birthday on Leap Day. He’s about 6 1/2, my my calculations ;)
