M Squared said...

Lige begins post 30. Congratulations, for you have entered the age of discovery.

Happy Birthday Paradox.

Go, Discover and relish the enigma of life.

Cheers

Paradox Philic said...

@Jhayu - Thankyou dear.
And you were not late considering the time zone i am in... :)

@M Squared - Thankyou my friend. I will take your word on this :)

I Walk Alone!!! said...

Happy Birthday Gina :)

Life has just begun... What say?

People in the Sun said...

Mazal Tov!

Solitaire said...

Belated birthday wishes!

Age is just a number......

Che said...

Happy Birthday to P
Happy Birthday to P
Happy Birthday to dear P
Happy Birthday to P

Now where is my cake?

Dont tell me i made so much effort for nothing :(.

And solitaire is damn right. Age is just a number. I maybe almost 26 but I dont let people feel that I am a day over 6.

Jhayu said...

Yeah, I can vouch for what Che just said. He does, kinda act like he's 5.

Paradox Philic said...

@ I walk alone - Thankyou. Yup an era of discoveries begin now.... (Quoting my wise friend M squared)

@ People in the sun - Thankyou. (I checked out your blog... you are funny :) By the way, what directed you to my blog?)


@ Solitaire - Thanks. Yup it is, i guess!

@Che - Why only a piece of cake? Why not a fulltoo party? Remind me to book my tickets through mumbai the next time i am coming to India... (You know the only direct flight from here to India lands in Mumbai)

@Jhayu - lol... leave the poor guy alone, will ya? He just recited the entire birthday song on his own... a 5 day old cant do that... now can he???

Zubin said...

Hey...A very happy birthday..Gin..(no pun intended):D


have a blast.. :)

Paradox Philic said...

@ Zubin - Thankyou dear...

Although it was on the 12th...but feels good to extend it like this :)

Zubin said...

oh..well..belated one then.. :)

or I can say..happy birthday week..!! :)

Paradox Philic said...

@ Zubin - Hehehehe birthday week? :) Does this mean you are going to wish every day of the week??
Lets not torture ourselves through this and keep it to one day only :D
what say?

Zubin said...

ahem..well..that was not the idea. :p
thanks for saving me from the torture though..:D

Neo said...

31 is not that bad.. i am there myself :)

Mez said...

Happy Yippie B'day girl..Belated! How did ya celebrate?

Che said...

Yes Jhayu is right, I do act like I am five which in turns allows him to be a baby all the time ;)

Haha ok i think both of us need stop this. Squabbling is what out office is for and not your blog!

Paradox Philic said...

@ Zubin - See ... i am magnanimous..sometimes, without realisation! :)

@ Neo - I thought you would be at least one year younger :P

@ Mez - Thankyou :) Had a dinner party at my place

@ Che - Thank god for the small mercies... I was on the verge of giving up on you two ...I thought this epiphany (my blog = no warground) would never happen :P :P

Neo said...

lol.. i am gonna be 31 this dec... not that far... may be a blink of eye away :D

Paradox Philic said...

@ Neo - You do know the basis for that assumption of mine, right?

Neo said...

Yep have an idea... looking at Saroj Mam's blog... however i do not know the batch, name, and likes

Paradox Philic said...

@ Neo - And all this while i thought Vishal's blog directed you here :)

By the way, I was one year senior to you... I take it that you haven't asked Vishal yet :D
Not sure though, if he also remembers or not..

Neo said...

Ok frankly i did visited your Blog from Vishal's blog and at that time i had no ideas about who you are... (well now also i just know you are/were a senior at college) i just dropped by on Saroj mam's blog today (something that i rarely do) and saw your comment there and then did a 2+2 == 22 :)
and yes i haven't asked Vishal yet on who "Paradox Philic" could be... should i ask him now...?? hmmm no i guess i will wait for you to open that suspense :) drop me a email at malhotra.vikas@gmail.com

Paradox Philic said...

@ Neo - You mean kill the suspense.......... naaaaah!

Huaahahhhhaaaaahhhhhaaaaaaaahhhhaaaa
:P

Paradox Philic said...

@ Neo - Ok i think that was a tad bit too devlish :D

Lets play it this way ... if you happen to get it right in 3 guesses, when i ask you to tell me who do u rem among ur one year girl seniors from that time (There were never more than 15-20 girls in any batch, so this shouldn't be difficult).. i will let you know.

If you dont get it right... this would just imply that contrary to what i like to think, i am quite forgettable :) Given that i havent changed much since then (meaning i am still forgettable), why then would u want to crowd ur memory space with one more persons details, just to forget after a while?
So we will just leave it at this anonymity...ok??

Neo said...

And i am assuming that i get 1 hint per guess :) so what is the 1st hint...

Paradox Philic said...

@ Neo - Ok
Hint 1 - I was from the state itself where the college is located.

:P dont say its not a good hint.... i filtered out 50% of the girls just like that. Plus they are my hints, right?

Neo said...

ok hold that thought... i will come back to it but right now i got to run... the broadband engineer is coming over at my home to fix my connection and i cant imagine spending my weekend without internet.. especially now when i do not even have a cigarette to right... :)

Zubin said...

*magnanimous..sometimes, without realisation!*

your realization or mine..?? :p

Paradox Philic said...

@Zubin - Who do you think??

Hey hey... belated happy budday :)

Sorry for late wishes but my internet hours have drastically reduced these days! :p

No wonder u're also a leo!

I too turned 21 this August.

Cheers... and yeah happy independance day! :)

Paradox Philic said...

@ Dumb Eagle - Happy Belated Birthday to you too dear :)

And happy independence day too!!

P.S - Why "no wonder" I am a leo? Which trait of leos did you see in me?? I hope its something good :P

Dumb Eagle said...

yeah... all good traits. :p

ur amazing sense of humor (that hospital post)!

ur prank playing side (that school fotu post)!

and ur optimism mixed with a bit of self defiance in amusement calling posts!

But... no... not a bit of egotism that other leos claim to possess! :p

SSjSid said...

hi..it's a modified version of the MushBlue Template by jackbook..you'll have to make the changes yourself..took me hours..

The Listener said...

Belated Happy Birthday !!

Paradox Philic said...

@ Dumb Eagle - Thankoo thankooo... i am so glad that u enjoyed my posts :)

@ ssjsid - hmmm... i have tried to put in modifications for making the template better (3 column, date header changes etc etc) but everytime it screws up one thing or the other... so thought maybe you have applied some ready to use template from somewhere...hence my request. Thanks for your time :)

@The listener - Thankyou :)

shoe-string said...

I always wondered how old you actually are (sure, the about-me description says 30+ but thats not very specific, now is it?)

Now i know :)

Happy belated birthday sweetheart.

Love & Hugs,
The silent admirer who comes out from his lurking on only some special occasions like this (Although, for it all its worth, does think about commenting more often)

Paradox Philic said...

@ Shoe-string - Thankyou dear. Good to know that u thought of breaking your silence one more time...hope u speak more often!

Paradox Philic said...

@ Vamsi - Sorry i had to delete your comment.... doesnt anonymity automatically imply that you are not supposed to mention my name here? Grrrrrrrrrrr....

Vamsi Krishna said...

Oops... I understand. So, posting the same again without your name.

30 + and still going on. Good to hear that you have stopped smoking. It means that you may be getting married soon and live longer :P. God help the guy wherever he is. Ahem. Just Kidding. Good to see your blogs. Your blogs definitely give a warm feeling at times. But one doubt, Y with an anonymous name.

Zubin said...

yaaayy...yippie...I know your name.. :P
I am not telling anybody though..!! :d
(In case they dont know yet)

Your cover is blown Miss..Lovely name btw.. :)
...reminds me of someone.. :D

Jhayu said...

I know it too! I found it out another way, though. You still owe me for that one, Gina.

Neo said...

hi.. so i actually missed my broadband engineer on Thursday and bingo no internet the entire weekend!!! Ok so now that i am back on the grid... so i guess i lost the opportunity of reading your name on the comments.. damn just my luck....

Paradox Philic said...

I deleted the comment the moment i saw it... Damn the "email follow up" option :P :P

Zubin - reminds u of someone? Who?

Jhayu - I am indebted to you for life :)

Neo - I can understand what u went through without the net connection. I didnt have it for one day (yesterday)and i felt so helpless...
By the way, hint 1 is done with... and you havent come out with any guesses yet. Did we quit the game? Ok agreed we both are in the quitting mode... but its only meant for smoking, not everything else in life :D

Neo said...

No i am not quitting yet... not so easily... when i look and read your Blog i try to imagine and i can visualize only two free and strong willed girls in my senior batch... one was in Civil and the 2nd was in (i think) comp sciences... now i think both of there ladies qualify the hint that you gave me... :) am i any close?

Neo said...

ok let me take a leap here.. civil... right? i just emailed you the name i guessed...

Paradox Philic said...

@ Neo - U got it right... (One question though - you didn't know that the other girl from comp science wasn't from the state itself?? Had u known that u wudnt have called this a leap, it would have been a logical inference. So my hint #1 didn't help you a bit :)

And for the record, we (me & her) were quite different in our ways.

Neo said...

Yahooo!!!! i am good at this :D see me with my wide grin... :D
So you were not there in the recent Alumni meet... you should see how that place has evolved over the years... just unbelievable...

Paradox Philic said...

@ Neo - Apparently you are (good). Or is it just that i am too obvious?? :P

About the alumni meet - I wanted to go.. had all plans to go... but for some last minute crisis at work :(

I saw the pics though(urs included)and was glad to see that the campus has really transformed :)

People in the Sun said...

To answer your question from last week, I really don't remember how I got here. Weird. This post just came up on my Google Reader. Maybe I subscribed after finding you on Blog Catalog or something like that? It's a mystery. Still, happy birthday anyway.

Paradox Philic said...

@ People in the sun - :)
Thanks for the wishes.
