Do you know your blog-buddies?

When I saw this quiz on spices by Santhi, I thought : Why not a quiz about our fellow-bloggers? Ok, we don't know each other that well, but there are always a few bits of information to be seen in some corners. :)

By the way, before I start, let me make it clear that the questions are not in any particular order. No preference or priority here. I just went on writing as it came to my mind.

If you know who I am talking about, then just leave your answers in the comments section. I'll publish the answers, when the time is right(!). And hey, if I have not included you in the quiz, it's just that I didn't think of anything quizzy. I appreciate you as a fellow-blogger anyway.

One more important thing: Do you really wanna get into the temptation of reading others' comments? (You must have got caught copying in school exams then!)

----------- Spoiler follows ----------------

Ok, then. Get ready for the answers, Folks.

1. If it is weekend, she must be baking. - Pushpa with her Weekend Baking Sessions

2. No, they don't preach Geeta here. It's just a food blog. - Krishna & Arjuna's World

3. Let's see how her lemon pickle turns out in the end. - Manisha. Check out her lemon pickle.

4. He is a ... well, that itself is a clue. Mela kya? Sorry, mila kya? - Tony with his Curry Mela. The only man running a food-blog apart from VKN .

5. She shows us the 'roads' to healthy weight-loss. A weight-watcher's Utopia? - Neelu of Crossroads.

6. It's two separate bloggers. Both of them have non-Indian partners and both went on separate trips to the US recently. Do you know them? - Meeta and Shammi.

7. She never got to celebrate her birthday in school with her mates. Neither did she cut a cake as we know it. - Ashwini of Food for Thought. Read this post for more info.

8. Her name is Nalyavan. Doesn't sound right? Well, you just have to change your perspective and you'll know it. - Lavannya aka Perspective.

9. She always writes 'without fax'. Sorry, what was that again? - Mythili. She often ends her posts with the words 'without wax'. An important line from this Dan Brown novel.

10. I wonder why she took her turtle-neck sweaters from the US to Mumbai. - Nandita. The answer to this question is here.

Thank you ALL for participating. It was great fun!

Good job vaish.....looks like all of us should come up with such fun stuff once a while to keep the flame burning :)

Nandita said...

Hahahahhaaha, Im too late to get here-blame it on the time difference! So i'm not taking a shot at answering, lest you blame me for being a copycat in school. But this one shows there are quite a few people who have read my confessions coz most of them seem to have got the 10th one right....Burpy girl...this was one hell of a fun write up

Nandita said...

Three Cheers to Priya, for guessing all 10...Kudos to you girl!

Krithika said...


Thank you so much for sending me the code for recipe index. It was so easy :-)

Vaishali said...

Thank you, Guys. Thank you so much for responding with such enthusiasm. 31 comments in less than 24 hours! Phenomenal. I love being a food-blogger and being amongst all of you.

Ashwini & Manisha, who leaked the question paper to you? ;-)
Anyway, well done, my ladies! You have won a Gift Hamper each full of loads of kind comments at your next posts. ;-) ;-)

Ashwini said...

Kind comments hmmmm....okay okay I will takt it :-)
Vaish why dont you make this a weekly thing? Just one question per week. It'd give us a chance to get to know our buddies. Wot say?

Nila said...

I am late for the game :(. Anyways I got 6 correct answers, that makes me :D. This is a fun, wonderful idea Vaish.

Manisha said...

I subscribe to all your feeds on Bloglines. My work requires me to be online most of the time and my reader is usually always open in a separate window. I love to see what new recipes are out in the 'sphere. It's amazing how many memories are brought to the fore by your posts, as well as Ashwini's and Shilpa's posts. And then there is this new world of cuisine from the southern states of India which extends beyond idli-dosa-sambar-rasam. And then there are surprises like this which is like a sweet cherry in a bowl of blogs!

Priya said...

Oh My God....I was late for the exam..can I have a re-test Mam :-)

Puspha said...

GOSH!!!!!! I´m sooooo late. Was away from my comp for 3 days. Anyway, thanx for including me. I´m very happy that many know me.

Kudos to u dear Vaishali. U r incredible. Sehr gut!!!

Vaishali said...

Thank you all for those nice words. It feels nice to be appreciated.
Manisha, thank you so much. That was touching.

Indira said...

Aah... I missed all the fun. I haven't been doing much blog surfing lately and missing all things fun. :)

What an entertaining idea. Keep it up, Vaishali.

Nandita said...

Your idea was a great hit Vaishali, we must do this often, so that we get to know the bloggers around this- you get a distinction is this test for coming up with such a creative idea!
