6th Centenary Giveaway: The Winner

Finally, here's the winner of my "6th Centenary Giveaway" Quiz!

Roshmi and Abhiroop tied for the first place, with just one incorrect answer each. In fact, both of them got the same answer wrong... the "trick question" regarding me being a morning person!

So anyway, I said I'd do a lucky draw in case of a tie. So that's what I did. Five chits with Roshmi's name, and five with OB's. (It was no fun with just 2 chits in the box!) Shook them up, and then pulled one chit out.



Guess who it was?

Well alright then... it was OB!

Yeah man! You have some luck! After a long month of mental harassment, and all your attempts at flattery, cheating, gallantry and a dozen other tactics that I'm unable to describe in words... not to forget that post you were supposed to send, but didn't because you slept the day off... you STILL managed to win this giveaway!

Yes, yes... go on... do your "victory dance"! Maybe I'll switch my phone off for a few days, to give you time to cool down! But once you've got your head back on, please email me your postal address, so that I can send you the painting!

Shilpa and Roshmi... I love you both for participating in my 600th blog post celebrations. And to show my appreciation, I will send something to you both as well. But, not right away. I only just got this idea last night... so I'll need some time to gather the supplies and make your gifts. A couple of weeks probably? :D

You aren’t a morning person?!!!!! You wake up at the crack of dawn (6.30-ish) when the doodhwala comes along, … and you still say you are not a morning person?!!! Hummph!!!!!!

PS: Congratulations to Abhiroop. Lucky man; and the proud owner of such a beautiful painting! Take good care of it.

PPS: Congratulations to Shilpa as well; and muchas gracias to you Kaddu, for wanting to reward us. Eagerly waiting :)

No Roshmi! that used to be the 'dabba-waala' at sister's place in Delhi, to collect previous night's empty tiffin-box. Went back to bed after closing the door behind him! :p

But yeah, I used to be 10 times more productive and happy when I was able to wake up early. Back then, my day used to begin at 4:45 am! Now I'm still tripping over my own feet at 7:45 am!

Yeah OB... you better take good care of it! Otherwise you'll have 1 furious Bong to deal with as well as 1 hitler 'Di'! :D

a picture of me taken at at the instant i read my name

LOL! :D

Roshmi you're very gracious! I promise to use my new qualification - a PhD in Kaddugiri, for the welfare of mankind, for international harmony and national integration. Rubbish jokes apart, my mum has already decided where she wants to show off my prize :-)

Kaddu - it was such good fun doing this. Thank you so much. For the idea (can there be a better way of making the readers of one's blog feel special? How incredibly generous!), for the smart questions (discussion pending about morning person question!), for giving me a great excuse to spend hours pottering about one of my favourite places on the internet - this blog (survivor of three near death experiences, yeah man), for reminding me about the some of the things that make you such an interesting girl (if only remington steele were a werewolf, eh?) as I pored over each post in the About section, eyes peeled for the answers :-)

LOL @ "kaddugiri"! :D
I'm sure your mom will take good care of the painting... expecting it from you was asking for too much!

Regarding "morning person"... guys there's probably a conflict about the term "morning" here. My sister also got caught with this question. So let's not take the relative definition of "morning" here... let's stick to the actual meaning... a "morning person" is one who wakes up early enough to see the sun rise. Waking up at 8:00 am does not make one a morning person. Waking up at 6:30 am to accommodate the 'dabbawaala' (because he happens to be a morning person!) and going back to sleep after he's left, cursing him mentally, doesn't make one a morning person either.

Are we settled on this now? I am not a morning person currently. I used to be one many MANY years ago, I still dream of being one again, but as of now, I am definitely NOT a morning person!

Roshmi Sinha said...

Anyone that wakes before 12.00 Noon is a “morning person”. Period. :)

Hey Kaddu, I am keen to know your take on my latest post (The Krishna Key). It may appear to be a book review; but is far deeper than that.

PS: Why no new posts? Don’t tell me you are hibernating?! :)

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Roshmi: You & OB are like two peas from the same pod! And add my sister to your group as well! :P

I was caught up in some stuff, so took a break from the online world. See u around now...
