…I imagine it would read a lot like the musings of my friend Ranjeet.
(Notice how I said “got older” and not “grew up”)
There are only two blogs I read purely for entertainment value. One is by Scott Adams (of Dilbert fame). The other is Jeet’s. Everything else I read has some tangible benefit for my career or my life. These two are purely for the feeling of ass-meets-ground (when I fall off my chair laughing). Writing with humor and wit is a rare commodity indeed, and Jeet’s posts are like those martinis he likes so much – very dry and with a twist.
After a day of wrestling with my computer problems (yes, my laptop issues are still not resolved, and I have applied for a permit for a non-traceable, UNIX-based firearm to shoot whoever heads the Vista development division), I needed something to cheer me up. 5 minutes of catching up with the misadventures of Ranjeet during his recent California trip put me right back in the spirit of things.
His blog tagline is “Trying to be smart and funny. Struggling at both“. I don’t think so. He brings the same wit and humor he displays in real life to his writing. You’d think that the offline, time-delayed nature of blogging would end up being a filter on that wisecracking mouth of his. Not so much (witness his recent post on wives and remote controls, which had Tanu laughing hysterically one second, and then looking at me with suspicious eyes the next; thanks, Jeet).
Read his blog, it is hilarious. I keep telling him he should stop looking for ways to earn his millions from a startup, and just do this. The contextual Google ads to go with his posts would be a riot.
Maybe if he got a cat he could torment…Tags: Blogging, Ranjeet Vidwans
