      Ok silly jokes apart, I love Pizzas, Chicken Biryani and Gandhidham’s famous Egg Curry as well 🙂 And am surprised you don’t know how to swim!

      Not single but always available – Like that line 🙂 he he… I can listen all the women sighing – all men are the same he he…

      Have fun in Bharuch! But I was wondering, didn’t you just go some time back?

      HW : Lol… 😆

      i can swim… i can… but for 2 mins… by then all my energy is consumed in the panic… !! sigh… i have to learn some day… !!!

      I had gone for the engagement earlier for 4-5 days… !! boss you shouldnt be counting holidays… !! i m not complaining… !!

      • Rakesh says:

        Not complaining, just plain jealous… I don’t know when I’ll go for vacation next!!!

        HW : after this vacation i can forget going anywhere till March… but well i ll worry about it after i come back… 😐

    kaju katli… yummm why do people have to talk abt food when i am dieting

    cigarettes – u need to quit hitchy really very very bad habit….

    I didnt read these two lines.. !

    biscuits i need biscuits after lunch and dinner.. ROFL really???? which biscuits do u eat?

    I can gobble packets of bourbon and orange cream of britannia and jimjam… i love krackjack and monaco too… desi indian biscuits…

    u know i think swimming is a must, i also have phobias because i dont know swimming well, i have tried learning twice but i cant just get how to breathe in water

    lol… breathe in water.. or hold the breath in water ??? lol.. i will learn tooo soon… with my son… !!! 😀


    and why dont u tag? not good?

    I tag you… I didnt tag incase it is being forced upon some one… thats why i didnt..

    i think being fractured and having a plaster is really cool – ha ha and specially when friends come and scribble so many good things on it 😀

    blogging runs in my viens ROFL

    too much hitchy

    he he he… it really does,,, !! lol 😀 😀

      • monikamanchanda says:

        • Saritha says:

          You give biscuits to hirday or u eat all

          HW : I eat my share and he has his share… from which he licks the cream only from his share.. and i gobble the biscuits and help him while his mom doesnt see…… 😛 😛 😛

          • Rakesh says:

            God, even my son just opens up the biscuit, eats all the cream and returns the biscuit to me… And then he pretends to put it in my mouth – Pappa khaye, pappa khaye, yuvaan khilaye

            i think all kids do the same… and they all are blessed with dad’s who eat the biscuits… while mom’s keep insisting he eat the biscuit too… no licking cream… as if it has extra vitamins… lol 😛 😛 😆

        • Swaram says:

    interesting tag this one is.. everyone should do it as a filler coz blog material seem to have dried up all around 😛

    geee… I didnt know oranges had all those varieties … we only call them santra and eat them up !!!! what are you saying blog material has dried… didnt u read my last post… i m sure you saw… just ran away i guess… 😛

  9. Saritha says:

    Liked the tag dhiren,even i don’t have anything to post so i will also take up the tag

    Available/Single? Not single but always available— lol my dhiren is available to all 😉

    No no… saritha… only for you… that was just to make it sound funny… seriously…kasam se…

    P – Phobias/Fears? None in particular… but i always have a feeling in train what if we fall of a bridge into a river.. i cant swim… lol.—– dhiren i will save you from the river (i know swimming)

    Now i must ensure I have you in train with me when my drain falls off…

    Worst habit— even mine and end up in so many mistakes (the mistake i did on IHM blog)

    That was not a mistake… I know it was intentional… whats in the heart generally comes out by way of a typo !!! 😀 😀

    Fracture is cool because it was a wrist,if it was other part of the body it is torture

  10. Nimmy says:

    🙂 You are indeed a blog addict and your posts are full of enthusiam..

    The poem was nice and rhyming…

    yes enthusiasm no one can doubt in this … thats for sure… lol 😀 😀 …. thanks !!!

  11. Swaram says:

    Hitchu … me 4gt abt the poem totally 😉
    Sense prevailed nw … beautiful!!! Me thinks u shud write more!!!!!!

    lol… !!! finally !!! 😛 😛

  12. Ashwathy says:

    the ABC tag? u too? 😀

    u hate pappaya? ask abt a vegetable and u reply abt a fruit! typical dhiren! 😀

    sigh… enthusiasm is to be praised no ???

    u know after reading the 2nd half, initially i ws like WHAT??? hitchy away from his blog for 17 days? impossible!
    then i saw the remaining part which confirmed my views 😀
    enjoy urself! have a ball of time!
    and yes, dont obsess too much with blogging…. real in the real world and enjoy the company of ur family…

    but in the meantime dont forget us either. blogosphere wont be the same without good ol’ hitchy 😉

    no way can i forget you all… but seriously i need to stay away a bit actually i m becoming obsessed… and its important to stay in limits…. sigh… i m gonna try surely… !! my wife will love it… lol

      • Ashwathy says:

        yes ur obsession is getting a li’l extreme so a break wud do u good. and yes biwi khush hogi 😀

        HW : no other way out… have to restrict… lol…

        but will u be able to exercise control? that is what i m wondering….

  15. umsreflections says:

    Esp like the Married but available – next line is ur best frnd is ur wife. Does ur wife know abt – married but available status ?????

    After all the gyaan you got for drinking, u write some mosambi juice !!

    The phobia – very funny !!! But those bridges which doesnt have those steel side supports are quite scary – the Indian trains shake a lot only on those bridges.

    Have a happy vacation !!!

  16. amit says:
