    @jayasala42,
    Thank you dear Jaya for your encouraging fb.
    As you have said we have all the modern gadgets and that's why we have more free time, and we are able to join social sites and exchange our joys and sorrows which gives us solace. We are fortunate than our previous generation.

    Sometimes we do get intimadated by other people'scommand on the language . But , unless we are all wanting to be published Writers aiming for a Literary Award, we shouldnot get too stressed about it i think . In social networking forums , its enough if we can communicate our thought properly .

    Dear@SCSusila,
    So far None has complained about my language in IL and it was my personal decision due to my old age problems. I joined IL in the year 2006 on my own after reading about the site in the newspaper The Hindu.
    Thank you for your support and encouragement.

    Mr Cheeniya is okay. Mr Ojaantrik is also okay. But Madam Iravati gives me the willies. I am thirty-something. If you saw me outside IL, you will find it hard to believe that Madam Iravati is a scruffy kid who on a good day braids her hair but on a bad day is Medusa's rival. I am unkempt, lazy, and the cherry is that I am thoroughbred spoilt brat. I am unlike anything or everything you pictured about me. I just wanted to let you know that sandwiched between Cheeniya and OJ itself gives me the tremors. I am snappy and tart in tone but I haven't bitten anyone since 1999 so you are safe around me and feel free to drop that "Madam" appellation :rolleyes:.

    Not bird brain please :) You have completed eight decades but you are using the internet, I am 55, some friends of my age say they do not understand the internet and are just not interested to learn.
    With regards, Lakshmi

    Dear@Iravati,
    It seems We both belong to the same catogery as far as outward appearance is concerned not bothering about our appearance, but you seem to be an intriguing and quite an enterprising person. Of course you are thoroughbred, but not spoiled brat. I admire you for your wit and wisdom and enjoy reading your conversation with @Cheeniya. I have to admit at times I have to refer the dictionary to grasp the meaning to enjoy it to the hilt.
    In a lighter vein, No need to get tremors as you will be safe sandwiched between the two gentlemen.

    Dear@LakshmiMBhat
    Thank you so much for your complimement. I do love to learn new things. But sometimes I feel that trying to learn too many things leads to, "Jack of all trades master of none."

    Inward suits me better. I am not forthcoming in initiating connects. I meet someone who jibes with me, I talk. I come across something that intrigues me, I step in. No enterprising anywhere. I am mostly scared of people. Unless I know for sure I am dealing with an easy-going person at whom I can dispense barbs and bows alike, only then I stay connected. Hence, I am picky of whom I talk to lest I say something which may or may not affront their sensibility. Where was I, yes I am scared of people.

    Heh! You have no idea. I am a spoiled brat in "real" life. May be I am cordial and formal here. But I would never type away anything with such sobriety to friends. Mostly I harpoon them with my whims and rants and TNT shots. I can afford that in my life as we are a cool gang and no ones takes me serious enough. Booh!

    Coming to the topic of your blog, let me tell you something very frankly. People write here for various reasons. Few as rant, few to reconcile their worldview with others, and few as ramble. I belong to that last category. Not that we lack something in life but we wish to have an untethered space to unleash our excitatory madness. All our needs and goals are different. Would you ever need any kind of superior English is the question. Yes, no harm in upgrading. No, then relish your signatory self-expression. If a GRE aspirant rattles off his English prowess, that is his necessity. I would be impressed, may be daunted, but then I would ask myself would I have any requisite for such skillset.

    IL is a virtual sandbox where members take shine to what they fancy and exhibit what they discover and learn what suits them. But stay focused on what you seek here. There are umpteen things happening in the forum as I am typing: members are posting about self-help, gossip, food, movies, artwork. You cannot read or stay abreast of everything. What matters is what you seek here and what you regard here and how to sustain that. Members enjoy your writing here, so be it, don't change anything in your style based on someone else's stint here. Repeat, we seek different things and be watchful of those bloody GRE aspirants, they are a nuisance I tell you. Hmph!

    Dear @sokhanasanah

    I like your psuedonym which means destroying the sadness.

    Have you included the words from feedbacks also to get this total 127 unique words? Otherwise it is not feasible to get this total including your unique word "Dale-Chall"
