Disaster Strikes!!!

You know how you feel when one of the most indispensable parts of you fails??? Ok, not so serious that it goes into physical inability but its my specs. Imagine the horror I felt when I saw a crack in one of the lens!!! Its not a nice thing for a person who wears only specs, has a bad spare which gives headaches and feels like a tonne on the nose and lands you right back into the ancient ages!!! I feel like a grand mom wearing my spare.
Yeah, so, I had to run immediately to the near by specs store and hopefully, he would give back my specs by evening (post writing time – 5:45). So, that was the gloomy part of it but every cloud has a silver lining, right??? I get to buy a new frame, yay!!! Of course, when you are pinching and saving, your money goes down into some expense which is completely unavoidable. 
So, the summary of the story – get new specs, don’t pinch and scrape, spend!!! And, sorry for no beauty post. I am not feeling inspired. Hopefully, should feel by tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜€ Btw, do you have something so indispensable in your life???

Update: I got my specs back in perfect form ๐Ÿ˜€ And, I got my first google adsense check. And, my blog’s page views crossed 150,000 last month. And, I am just 6 to 500 fb fans!!! I know the stats aren’t much to boast about but I am proud of them. So, I wanted to announce that a small giveaway is in the offing when fb fans turn 500. So, guys, like the page below if you haven’t yet. And, let me warn you beforehand that it will be a very small giveaway. And, just noticed, this is my 751st post :)

    congos swati. google adsense is rejecting my application. Chitika is not working properly so i dont know wat to do :(

    • says

      thanks Vanu :) yeah, chitika paid me well last year but this year, its just not working properly so I removed it. even my application got accepted after a long time….even if your blog is visited by spam, the app is rejected :( wait for 6 months or a year and clean up your blog in between is my idea and promote it in only legitimate places!!! don’t sign up for blog directories…they do nothing except increasing your page load…hope that helps :)

    oh ohh! :)
    Congrats on your new specs :D, on crossing 1,50,000 views, on 6 short of 500 fb fans and on your 751th post :)

    Blogging is definitely not easy and these stats are quite encouraging…

    and this is something I wanted to say for quite sometime…this is the right post to say I guess… the way u choose pics for your posts makes me wonder if you choose the pic first and then write the post… they are so
    apt…a pic adds a lot to what has been written…it just completes the whole thing

    Keep up the good job!

    • says

      thanks Padmaja :) yeah, I am kind of excited and really happy to see so many people reading a completely useless and personal post and commenting ๐Ÿ˜€
      yeah, the stats are really encouraging and they keep me going….its all happening after 2 n half years :)
      haha…no, I write first and then, choose the pic according to what I have written coz I sometimes digress a lot and many posts come from that digressing habit ๐Ÿ˜€
      btw, I wanted to ask you something which I am not able to recall :(

    • Padmaja says

      Ohh! do recall and ask :)
      I am happy I discovered this useless blog ๐Ÿ˜‰ all thanks to Kama ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Hey, by the way the other day I took a glance at your other blog :)

    • says

      haha…yeah Kama is useful for something ๐Ÿ˜€ oh really, its just full of quotes right now. I really love collecting quotes and lost a complete collection coz my friend’s hard disk crashed. he had my old dump :( then, I thought I would rather write it in a blog :)
      I hope I get a good frame and then post it on the blog ๐Ÿ˜€ Ansh asked me to some day’s back!!

  6. says

    Congrats Swati… and 751th post? that’s so huge…I crossed 200 recently and feel like giving up at times but as you said, the stats acts like a motivator :)

    • says

      hey Pooja…don’t :) that’s my only advise ๐Ÿ˜€ I have been blogging for 2 n half years and now, I am getting some decent stats…of course, they increased gradually!!! so, it does take time :) so looking forward to your pumped up posts ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi Swati, I know what you mean…this happened to me on Sunday morning..my spectacles fell from my head (did a stupid thing really) and the lens broke.. and my heart sank..coz I had to go back to wearing my old pair which I now hate (I think they make me look older..vain!) Anyways had to wait 2 days before I got mine back.And now I am more careful and cherish the pair even more (if that makes sense)
    Congratulations on the milestone and as someone mentioned already it high time we put a face to the blog. :)..All the best

    • says

      hey Renuca…oh my gosh…when I first read the comment, I thought you fell on your head and you are worrying about specs??? then, I read it again…yeah, same thing…mine feel from the table and it keeps falling everyday, you know!!! not like the first or second time. never breaks but when you need it most, it will surely ditch you ๐Ÿ˜€ I know even my spare makes me look aunti :( that’s why going to hunt for a new frame tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜€ if I had ordered a new specs, then, the lawrence and mayo guys take a week!!! imagine?? two days is way better.

    • says

      haha Renuca…do cherish it :) me too hope to get one which I shall cherish ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
      regd the snap, I know and frankly, even I want to give my blog a look and a face now :) but, give me sometime to adjust with the change :) I was already thinking of something so hope it works out!!
