Guess who's coming to dinner?

Sometime back Gingko passed on a dinner tag to me. I have to choose six people from blogsphere who I would like to invite for dinner. Six being too restrictive a number, I am going to go for the obvious answer. I would like to invite all of my regular readers. If something I write makes enough sense to a person to encourage her/him to come back and check my blog again, we are probably somewhere on the same wavelength and I am sure we will definitely make a connection :-)! And of course, I would love to put faces to the people. Whether the meet will be in-house or in a restaurant can be voted for by the invitees. However, if it is in-house, it will be a potluck (sorry, paper cups, chips, etc. do not count as potluck items) and if it is a restaurant, we will all be going dutch (unless some lucky person has their b'day that day ;-)). Okie, now, who are the takers :-)?

Since I did not follow the exact instructions for the tag, I waive my option to tag others. So all the taggable people can sigh in collective relief this time ;-)!

p.s. I am back from India. I am currently jet-lagged (a lot) and homesick (even more) :-(. If anyone has coping-up suggestions other than "Quit whining! You made this choice. Get on with your life!" (I already tried it - it's not working), please to let me know.

Welcome back... hope u had a great time...

Saranya Kishore said...

Oh and regarding home sickness...
Just bury yourself in work, it helps!

I always keep some pending work before going on vacation, so it keeps me busy when I am back :D

Joking aside, it is inevitable to feel home sick right after a trip from India, just realize that it will pass in a few days, talk to friends here, call them home.. you should be ok.

Archana, ha, bitten back by my own statements! I knew you guys would have such hopes - that's why made it clear about who is not doing the cooking ;-)!

Saranya, thank you, thank you :-)! Any meal time you choose is fine. I have some work to catch up on - with this damn jet-lag though, just keeping awake is tough enough :-(! Yeah, waiting for the depression period to pass by...

Thanu, thank you :-)!

Prasanna, read about your shift to a new place. Hope you are coping well with your home-sickness!

Rahul, ha, if you would sponsor my flight ticket, I would'nt mind moving the entire party to Sweden ;-)!

Archana Bahuguna said...

Archana you have 2 choices:

1. U tell us ur birthdate and we all get u a birthday gift.

2. You don't, we get the information from our reliable sources anyways and you don't get a gift also.

Which one do you prefer?

Archana said...

Gingko - yaaro inga-anga-nnu sollara! Who knows who or what they are!!

Archana - what is the gift? *bambi eyes*
