F-Un-Scrambler Golden Trophy

*****Drum-roll***** 

OK folks, here is the much-awaited Golden Trophy award!! 

Most of you (er, all of you) had figured out the jumbled words and sentence perfectly in my earlier post called ‘Unscramble This’, and that too, within 3 seconds flat… (much to my disappointment 😦 ) As Uma mentioned, you are a rather smart bunch of people 😛 which I whole-heartedly second! 

So here is your very very beautiful golden ‘The F-Un-Scrambler Trophy’. 

 

But .. but .. but, going by the popular saying ‘There is no free lunch’, the Trophy too comes with a small catch 😉 

I hereby award the trophy to the FIRST THREE COMMENTATORS, AND THE LAST THREE COMMENTATORS. 

In order of commenting:
Winner 1 – Prats
 

Winner 2 – Uma 

Winner 3 – Shilpa 

Winner 3rd from last – IHM 

Winner 2nd from last – Shail 

Winner 1st from last 😉 – Masood 

(Also, my dearest Deeps did drop by, and technically 3rd from last, but very unfortunately, she did not mention if she had managed to unscramble this or not! But she did mention something on Facebook. So what do you guys think? Should we give her the trophy too? Reply YES or NO and not MAYBE 😉 ) 

Now, your CHALLENGE is: Proud recipients of the F-Un-Scrambler Golden rolling Trophy are HEREBY TAGGED to put up a similar post with scrambled/jumbled words!! No rules/conditions apply. It just has to be jumbled words or jumbled letters or both, the way you like it!!

Do remember to link back to this original post though, so we maintain continuity. AND please also come back to let me know when you’ve posted your challenge (that way I will get a chance to participate too 🙂 😉 )

And yes, do pass on this beautiful rolling trophy to your winners too 🙂 

OK WINNERS, OVER TO YOU!!!

EDITED TO ADD:

Ok folks, we have a controversy now.. and I’ve been (un)justly accused of ‘favouritism’. So to clear my name of this infamous slander… I have to hereby award the gorgeous F-Un-Scrambler Golden Rolling Trophy to the foll. three people who commented on my post on Facebook!! Psst: Since there were only these three, they win both in the ‘First’ and ‘First from Last’ categories 🙂

Phew… who knew all this would happen…. 😛

More awards..

Happy Weekend everybody! And let’s begin it on this nice note…

 

Dreamer has awarded me with this precious ‘I Adore your Blog’ award.

J'Adore_Tien_Blog_Award_2009[2]

While I most gratefully accept it, I would also (rather promptly) like to pass it on to the foll. people, whose blogs are on the list of blogs that I admire…

1- Quirky Indian (though Quirky never bothers to acknowledge the award on the blog, or pass it on!)

2- Phoenix (for her wonderful sense of humour, and daring)

3- Shail (especially for her latest poem on Love)

4- Ratna (for being a wonderful writer..if you haven’t done so already, you have got to read her ‘Art of Having a Crush’)

5- Shankari (her stories lay the truth so bare, it could rip your soul apart) 

Cheerio!!

P.S: Dmanji is on an award-receiving spree, and has ever so sweetly passed them on to people in his blogroll..so I am going to ransack his collection of awards soon, and pass them on too 😉

Friendship- the Best award of all times!

I started blogging so I could keep my brains in working condition. I had NO inkling that I would make such wonderful friends in Blogosphere!

Every time I do something, or see something interesting, the first thing I can think of is to put it up here for you to read!!

I am so glad when you read my posts and leave such wonderfully kind words.

I am equally glad when you point out the yucky templates I sometimes choose 😉

But most of all, I am so glad that we are friends!!

If we do ever meet some day, in the real world, I don’t think we would be ‘strangers meeting for the first time’.

Dhiman has awarded me with this lovely Friendship Blogger award. Just two months into blogging, and Dmanji is already making waves in cyber world!! Cheers to that!!
