I love lucy

We're trying to be inspired, follow some able footsteps, and get into the groove of churning out 500 words a day. For the sake of discipline. Except school essays were so much easier. They always gave you a topic. The Hand That Rocks The Cradle. Or How I Spent My Summer Vacation. Autobiography of a coin. A day in the life of a flea. My favourite book character. Something! Anything! This thinking for oneself is the pits.

Anyway. Also, since I revisited my love for Charlie Brown, and not entirely out of excruciating boredom, Calvin and tiger, I have decided, will always be second best. Lolcats have taken a proper backseat. And all because everything you need to make you feel better about life and Sweet babboos, Schulz has it covered.


Yep, 500 words. Coming soon at a blog near you.

uno peanuts, dos calvin and hobbes is spot on. not to slight C&H, which is pretty damn great itself, but peanuts made everything possible. Its the Beatles of comic strips.

Yessss! finally, the long wait is over... we await with "carpeted eyes" (no, it's not an original term). read it, right before the RSVP list, on an invitation card sent by... you guessed it.... a panjoo parivar celebrating their mummy-daddyji's 25 years of togather-ness!

My thoughts on this thinking-on-your-own is one and the same. Maybe we can start a ning group or something...with all of our random writing prompts, in the style of a elementary school journal exercise.
What a novel idea...

I completely agree. Peanuts beats Calvin and Hobbes every time -- it's simpler yet more profound. I feel both warm and sad reading Peanuts.
