TOI fanboy

Girl: Did you know this [...] happened?

Me: Yes, I read about it in the TOI.

Girl: You read the TOI?

Me: Absolutely. I am a big Information junkie.

Girl (with that unapproving look): You got to be kidding me! You mean you actually look up the TOI for information???

Me (quipping): Oh yes, I do! In fact, I start with the supplement- The Bangalore Times.

Wonder why girls got to act so smart!

I'll mince you to pieces I tell ya desh for that they thnk they r some kind of intellectual junkies if they read Hindu - my only question is what "addition" is it to my gen info that "Geri Hallwell's dog is gay"

grrrrrr. I know you were hitting at me when you named Hindu :(

If the newspaper is for News, go ahead with an Indian Express/Hindu or something similar but ToI - strictly fot time-pass and nothing serious.


Now please, no duels here on this blog and no battlelines to be drawn. Peace !

Prasoon! I don't believe this. Desh just called you "intellectual"
Not that I doubt it but Desh calling you that!!! Doesn't seem right. He perhaps is really "hitting" on you :P

Indian Express is good. Pretty good. Hindu bores me.

We are bored with the Hindu, and this (http://the-enginerd.blogspot.com/2007/06/sania-mirza-and-laloo-ie-correlation.html) tells all abt IE. So we better stick to TOI ;)

Moreover, we are hooked all day to Google news. So we pretty much cover up everything that is in Hindu n likes...

PS: Google News doesnt feature Geri Halliwell's Dog!
