Michael makes a comeback! ... and an overdue award!

Its a done deal! The king of F1 is scheduled to make a comeback to replace an injured Filipe Massa. I cannot wait for Aug 23 to see the racing legend's comeback in the European GP!

A lot of Questions will be answered there.... A few on my mind are - Will he be the same Schumi after the break? How good will he be in the new car? Will he be fit @ 40? By how much margin will he beat Raikkonen? Suddenly August 23 is so far away when all these questions will be answered...

The circumstances are sad as Massa is badly injured, but I'm glad Ferrari roped in the king to fill the void! Anything to see the legend behind a Ferrari yet again!

Welcome back Michael Schumacher! You were missed!


The PROXIMITY award was given to me by Vee and Smita in Dec 2008. I did not pass it on to anyone because at that time, I did not know 8 people who didn't have this award! :D

Off I go to find 8 blogs worthy of this awards.

This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award. (Note added by Eye-in-sty-in: At their own time and convenience)

I pass it on to -

The award has been given based on the comments left by these bloggers on my blog. If u want such awards, the trick is to visit my blog more often and also leave intelligent comments.
PS: Their writing ability n wit may also have played a little part in the selection.

For those who have not yet received this award, it does not make you less worthy by any means. So please dont go about slashing ur wrists yet! Your time will come soon :-)

Well, thanks for the award.
But I though the cleverly written text called for 'Eight' awardees only ?

Aparna said...

Hey, eye-in-styin thank you buddy for giving me this award.

I would also like to thank my fren who pushed me to start writing my blogs, my IT for giving me system and not blocking blogspot completely in my office[at least now, you never know if they do it tomo only to irritate me], thanks to my Tata vdata card and its 40paise perminute billing which ultimately turned into approx 1000k everymonth even after most controlled usage:), thanks to my cook-maid coming in time so that i can spare all minutes with lappie and writing blogs, thanks to my parents for bearing with me, my late night lights on with laptop and irrtatingly being pasted to my system all time...Many thanks MS shobha de from where eye-in-sty-in found me and my blogs incl many other bloggers..hee hee...

Thanks to blah blah...Bas eye-in-sty-in has not yet paid me money to write my last 5 comments on his blogs ;)
