30 Days of Me: The Blog Name...

Day 20 of "30 Days of Me"
The meaning behind your blog name.


The ways of the Universe are strange and mysterious. So are mine. And "miss_teerious" has been my online identity since the year 2000, when I first got to know about the internet and emails.


My first email ID: miss_teerious@usa.net. Paid 20 bucks at a cybercafe in Patna, just to get this *free* email account on usa.net! I wish somebody had told me that I just needed to open the site and fill up an online form!

Anyway, usa.net soon became paid. So I moved to other free options--yahoo, rediff and hotmail--always as "miss_teerious". Eventually, I entered into the corporate world, where such *creative* IDs were en passé. So the new email IDs took the boring shape of some combination of first and last name.

And then this blog happened... my *personal* space on the web... having no connection at all with my professional life. So it was only befitting that "miss_teerious" returned online.

UPDATE IN 2016:
Since I have officially accepted being an alien, the orange pumpkin is now green. (See blog header.)


This is my 20th post for NaBloPoMo September 2011.

My mum found me muttering "NaBloPoMo, NaBloPoMo.." like a chant (while I was browsing thru' the newspaper) and she was convinced that I had joined some secret internet cult. Its such a ridiculous name man. I was just trying to see if I could say it at all...

So then I shoved the blame for the weird chant on you. And now she wants me to scram so she can play color junction. Which isn't there anymore on miss_teerious so I created an iGoogle page for her and slapped on color junction as a gadget or whatever its called.

NaBloPoMo. Indeed.

LOL! It is a real tongue-twister.

As for Color Junction... of course it's still here and still working fine. I play it every now & then. Managed to clear the board last week after like months! Check your browser settings if it isn't showing up.
