I have been called various names in my life – most, if not all of them, pejorative – but ever since I started actively blogging, I have been called names that my real life friends would stoutly refuse to acknowledge as being descriptive of me. First a lot of bloggers called me Versatile. When I told my friends about it, the first reaction was, “You are lying!” When I proved it with the respective blog posts the unanimous outcry was, “What did you pay them?”
We live in dissolute times and the most altruistic of us have to prepare ourselves for such unjust accusations. Despite the fact that they could invite the attention of India Against Corruption, two wonderful bloggers – Kappu and Sapna – have dared to call me Creative. Ouch! Being Creative means that I have to be creative with my spelling as well so it is actually Kreativ. The saving grace for this duo is that my friends may actually agree with them in part – if only for the creative excuses I have made all my life to avoid work!
Unfortunately, it would stretch what remains of my creativity to impossible limits to find more facts to share about me. If there be any such strange person who is actually interested in knowing things about me, I would invite him to I amVersatile, Versatile Again, Tagged or And now the Liebster. Enough facts about me will be presented there for even the most masochistic person to eschew any further interest in my persona or doings.
I must also beg off on finding more bloggers to pass on the award. My creativity is temporarily in abeyance and, thus, I find myself at a loss for an acceptable excuse for not doing it (See what years of not working can do to you. While I was working I could always find admirable excuses for avoiding work!). I can only plead laziness. There are so many great bloggers around so it is not a dearth of Kreativ bloggers but the sheer effort involved in listing them and providing links that is a killer. I do think I have done my share of bringing great bloggers together with appreciative readers in my short span of five months, so I think I am entitled to a free pardon on this issue this time.
The one thing that has surprised me in my days of blogging – and that which continues to surprise me as can be seen by my permanently bemused look – is that fact that there are so many people in this blogosphere who have affection for me. I am and will continue to be indebted to them.
Many thanks Kappu and Sapna for considering me Kreativ!
