Ironically the entry was about bad luck and superstitions!
If a white cat runs into a black cat... Is it a sign of bad luck for the white cat ???
P.S: In memory of c2 which I think, ran into a black cat like this before it went missing sometime during the summer.

So yet again I have one another T-shirt that I can never wear in public(read: outside the walls of IIT)
P.S: Drawing in GIMP takes so much time... from the next time on, I am drawing with my hand.

So here I am in the blogosphere finally, struggling with what would be my first official blog post. After all these years of writing diaries and penning down thoughts that no one else read, I wanted my first post to be prolific, grand in nature, broad in scope but when I actually sat down to type it, my mind went blank and I just couldn't think of anything. So, what was supposed to be 'broad in scope' is now just... scope.
I was reluctant to start a blog because I already write a diary where I bitch about the world and didn't quite find the need to bitch around in public. I always thought convincing myself to start blogging is the biggest hurdle but little did I know that naming a blog is even tougher. Most of the names are already taken. The name of the blog should be catchy and I have observed people around me and how they name their blogs and concluded that the most easiest way to name a blog is to choose two random words that stimulate your sense of smell or taste or color or a mix (preferably with some European etymology) and then join them with an AND. I went about trying a few names but I had to drop all of them because they either sounded really lame or they were already taken. So I gave up and wanted to name my blog as “i-don't-know-how-to-name-a-blog” or something like that but even those are taken!
So I had to ditch the tingling-your-senses formula for naming the blog and decided to try something new, something out of the ordinary, then I tried 'Salman's shirt – I write about things that don't exist' but eventually dropped the idea because I felt that Salman and his non-existent shirt joke were overdone in all circles. The next big idea was to append any two of the most random of words, so I decided to name my blog 'Blashedged and Quenosted – these are not even in the dictionary' or blasquenos in short. I liked the idea for a night or so but realized that I am already suffering from a really stupid gmail id because I thought it sounded cool a long time back and didn't want to make the same mistake again. So, I zeroed in on gtoosphere which makes sense and will continue to do so as long as I am g2. Anyways Sashi says that the concept of a blog is a tad greater than it's name so, it shouldn't really matter.
P.S: I just found out that a blog by the name Salman's shirt actually exists! I am not the only freak in town ;)
