This blog is no longer being updated. Last post was “Farewell”.



Tuesday, December 23, 2008

Coughing sprees, backaches, partial success with tasks at work, and an overall state of haziness. Add them all and the result you’ll get will have “slow blog updates” written all over it.

Yes, I know, I have never been quick at posting updates (except on some miraculous occasions), but I just wanted to say the above. Feels good to vent.

So anyway, even though I said in my most recent comment-reply that an update would come hopefully on the weekend, I am being efficient and posting some links below; they are Ulta Seedha’s current update. Boy, I am clever.

Wheee! I took a quiz!

Most of you might not be that passionate about fonts, but when I saw a quiz titled “What Font Are You?“, I just couldn’t resist.

And just like a true fan, I am *drumroll please* Helvetica!

Screenshot of the quiz result that I got

Classic, reliable, and boring. Yep, that’s me.

Make sure you check out other font results as well. They are good.

Some xkcd brilliance

For some very strange reason, I keep going back to this comic and reading it. For some another very strange reason, I have never bothered to save it to my machine’s harddisk and always read it on its website. But anyway, just click on the link and enjoy it (even if you don’t understand a word/pixel of it).

Warning: Geek or no geek, ignore the comic’s tooltip. I am not going to explain anything about it. It has also nothing to do with the very strange reasons.

The Dark Knight – Joker interrogation scene spoof

Okay, so you either loved it or hated it. The movie, that is. (If you hated it, close your browser. I don’t want to talk to you anymore.)

There’s some guy out there who made a pretty nifty spoof of the Joker interrogation scene from The Dark Knight. It’s not “insanely hilarious”, as some comments on YouTube will tell you, but nonetheless, it’s pretty funny. It’s very possible that you’ve seen it before, but what the heck, see it again. It’s worth it. If you haven’t seen The Dark Knight yet, then… well, see it in that case as well. A little laugh doesn’t hurt anybody.

This is just a heading

… because there’s nothing to write in here. The post ends.

Dec 23, 2008 at 7:09 pm

heheh…these quizzes are turning stranger by the day…


Dec 23, 2008 at 11:49 pm

This is just a comment..

because I got nothing to say.

Except erm…oh what was it *rubs forehead* Oh yeah. Get well soon.

‘You are Times New Roman- some call you timeless, others call you a snob. Either way, you’re a class act all around. Just don’t take yourself too seriously’

Okay, that test just insulted me.


Dec 24, 2008 at 5:21 pm

Don’t hate Helvetica, man. Hate Arial! What font did you turn out to be?

They sure are.

Thanks. :) And, um, yeah, well, you are at least timeless and a class act.


Dec 24, 2008 at 11:14 pm

I am helvetica too. yay Im boring too
btw someday, when I have the time, I’m going to read your blog from beginning to end. you’re very funny :)


Dec 26, 2008 at 11:16 am

I refuse to acknowledge this as a post!! I want a real proper post on ulta seedha!! (yup, I’m throwing a tantrum!)


Dec 26, 2008 at 12:23 pm

i dont like this..i am a helvetica too :P
get well soon and btw, i really like the ending :)


Dec 26, 2008 at 1:14 pm

How many times did you take the quiz to be labeled your favorite font? Thanks for the link to this quiz – I can now update my blog. :D

xkcd’s the best comic around – after bizarro :P


Dec 26, 2008 at 3:15 pm

Yay for being the boring Helvetica. And thanks, though I am really not that funny. :)

*shakes his head* Kids and their tantrums! :P

What the hell is wrong with everyone?! Hello, Helvetica is a CLASSIC! And thanks, for both the wish and liking the ending. :)

Just once. I am clever like that. :cool: I had to take it again to save the screenshot, but then I already knew which options to select. Go and update your blog!

And Bizarro? Never heard of it. :P (Except in Superman comics.)

Times New Roman | Tea Break

Dec 26, 2008 at 4:21 pm

[...] the link from Saadat’s blog. Times New Roman is not my favourite font. Moreover, I don’t think the above description fits [...]


Dec 26, 2008 at 6:04 pm

I’m Helvetica too. I think this quiz knows no other fonts. lol.


Dec 26, 2008 at 6:54 pm

I think you should check out bizarro. – He’s also an animal rights activist with a style of his own.


Dec 26, 2008 at 7:08 pm

hehe i turned out courier =D

and hey man that interrogation scene spoof from TDK is just damn hilarious! I’ve watched it earlier but thanks to you for making me lmao! :P

aur sab sett? =)


Dec 26, 2008 at 7:09 pm

By ‘he’ I mean Dan Piraro, the guy behind Bizarro.


Dec 26, 2008 at 9:53 pm

LOL, yeah, maybe. Or maybe I am not the only one who is boring!

Yep, I had googled about Bizarro earlier. I liked this one! And ah, Piraro is also an animal rights activist. No wonder you know about him!

So we have a third font in the house! I think Courier quite suits you! And yep, that spoof is just marvelous. That person has also made a spoof of the party scene where the Joker attacks Bruce Wayne’s penthouse. Do check it out in the related videos.


Dec 27, 2008 at 12:58 am

*sigh* I also ended up being Helvecta. I love that font. Or at least I’m going to claim to do so from now on :P


Dec 27, 2008 at 4:51 am

I think kaamchor bloggers are all Helevetica. I am one too. Reckon if we started updating more regularly we wold be less boring and hence less Helevetica.

And I hate Arial too!



Dec 27, 2008 at 4:45 pm

Good for you. :P

I don’t know about others, but since you confessed, and I am already a notorious kaamchor blogger, I guess this might be the reason we are both Helveticas. But Helvetica or no Helvetica, keep hating Arial!

[...] Got the link from Hinstance blog (who got the link from Saadat’s blog). [...]


Dec 28, 2008 at 3:48 am

You had to be Helvetica =P


Dec 28, 2008 at 11:27 pm

youre a font fetishist! :D


Dec 28, 2008 at 11:34 pm

and apparently i am ‘IMPACT’… is that like a good thing? :P


Dec 29, 2008 at 12:07 am

a gora stuff in quiz. not for us dude – all wrong. :P
find a desi version.


Dec 29, 2008 at 3:10 am

Habibi, your blog and mine are glaring examples of how kaamchor we are at blogging. A post a month, or three in two months is nothing but kaamchori. :)


Dec 29, 2008 at 3:49 pm

Are you disappointed? :P

Haha, maybe I am! And LOL, you really got the right font for you. :P

Dude, your second comment was not liked by WordPress, and I agree! The link to the quiz that you posted is so NOT fun! :P

Baat tau sach hai, magar baat hai rusvayee ki. :)


Dec 29, 2008 at 5:41 pm

I updated. And this once I don’t hate it too much. For now at least. :)


Dec 29, 2008 at 9:28 pm

am halvetica :P seriously I choose the stuff tht made sense, nothing else did lol, n ended up to be a halvetica..a confirmation note tht indeed I AM boring :P lol


Dec 29, 2008 at 11:10 pm

The choice was yours. ;)


Dec 30, 2008 at 9:20 am

Just now i have found something interesting, a gesture of goodwill if previous link caused any offense, hope it would be of some interest.


Dec 30, 2008 at 5:35 pm

An excellent update. :)

Oh, so only boring things make sense to you? :P Because I could make sense out of other options as well, just that I wouldn’t be doing/choosing them!

No offense was taken, dude, but I just thought to not disclose the link. ;) Thanks for the t-rex quiz, though. Apparently, it would take the poor creature 13 hours to digest me. (I wonder if it’s good or bad!)


Dec 31, 2008 at 1:07 am

no its not like only boring makes sense to me, its just that I don’t like boasting abt being reliable and classic :P thts for others to judge


Jan 3, 2009 at 3:26 am

I be Helvetica as well:(
that be not fair *sigh*
btw Happy New Year to you wishes & regards: )


Jan 3, 2009 at 6:39 pm

*inserts generic comment for the sake of commenting*

I’m a huge fan of xckd, here’s two you should check out when you’re procrastinating:

They’re full of black humour and geeky in-jokes [which I love!]


Jan 3, 2009 at 6:42 pm

I’m boring like you too on the font-front.


Jan 4, 2009 at 12:42 pm

Modest, I see. :P

Thank you, amigo. And come on, Helvetica is classic.

Thanks for the links. I knew about A Softer World; it’s cool. Welcome to the boring club!


Jan 6, 2009 at 12:29 pm

how can fonts describe personalities???

yeh kab se honay laga


Jan 10, 2009 at 4:11 am

Salamz Celebrity dude,

Its official. When you call something good – it becomes all the rage.

Case in point – you go and say an update is good, and the site-meter goes crazy on my blog – 10 hits in three months, and then 30 in one day. Had I known that before, I would have been advertising my blog here ages ago.

Now be the good celebrity, and do that thing that makes you such a celebrity – write!


Jan 10, 2009 at 11:09 pm

A year has passed and you have not updated yet.


Jan 14, 2009 at 12:29 pm

Jan 20, 2009 at 1:26 pm
