We are here on our very first Masti Monday. So let me demystify this first Masti Monday for you.
All of us play a game today. A chain game. A game which will not only help us get to know each other better but also bridge the gap between your personal blogs n WL. This game is called "Last Member Standing". Read on to understand how this works.
All the action happens in the comments section. The game starts with one member and then the chain follows with each one who comments. For eg. say it starts with me. You have to visit my blog. Read any post out there...comment on it....come back to WL on this post......put up a two line verdict on what kind of person do you think I am from my writing. And add your blog link along with your verdict. The next one follows the same pattern. He or she will come down to the blog link you put up, read your stuff and comment there...come back to the lounge....put up a two line verdict on what kind of person do you think the one above you is and follow it up with your blog link. The person who gets the most diverse set of verdicts from all will be declared "The Crooked one" :-)
You can pass your verdicts on the last commenter as many times as you want. For eg., if you have already passed off your verdict on Arjun who was the last one to comment, you are free to come in and comment once Kajal joins the comment string. And the chain will continue. To ensure that no two people start off with the same person above them, kindly put a "Verdict in progress" comment along with your blog link right below the comment of the person to whose blog you are heading so that the one after you heads to your blog. And when you come back and pass your verdict please dont add your blog link again because you are already being checked out by the one who came in after you. So the person who comes in to comment after your verdict comment will head to the last blog link that he sees above him, which will be of the person who is on your blog at that moment.
Phew...if that was confusing....let me further simplify the whole process in steps....a recreation of the comments box below. It starts off with the first one i.e. Sandeep Balan:
Say Arjun comes in next to comment. Before heading to my blog to comment on one of my posts and form a judgement on the kind of person i am from my writing and posting it here, he has to ensure that he is the only one who is heading to my blog. So before leaving for my blog, he has to stake his claim as a comment right after mine as follows:
Verdict in progress
Now say Kajal comes down. Before heading on to Arjun's blog, commenting there on any post and passing off the verdict here she has to follow the same process. So her comment would be
Verdict in progress
By this time say Arjun is done with his commenting on one post on sandeep's blog and has concluded tht sandeep is a crackpot. He comes back to the lounge and passes off his verdict as the next comment. But since Kajal is already there on his blog and the one who comes in next needs to head to Kajal's blog and not Arjun's, he will not add his blog link in the verdict that he passes. So his comment would be:
Arjun's verdict: Sandeep is a total crackpot. Where were you Sandeep when God was distributing brains...he he he.
Now say Stephen comes in. He sees that Arjun is the one who is the last commenter. But since he has not put in his blog link he is not required to go to Arjun's blog, but the last comment with the link i.e. Kajal's blog. So before heading Ste comments
Verdict in progress
Kajal comes back after commenting on Arjun's blog with her verdict. She puts it down but minus her blog link coz Ste is already taken the baton from her. So her comment after Ste's would be
Kajal's verdict on Arjun: Humourous to the core. Simple yet funny.
So if Asbah comes in to the comments box after this, instead of heading to Kajal's blog, she will head to Ste's blog after writing the comment here.
It continues in that fashion.
Have fun knowing each other better. And have fun reading each others blogs and commenting on them!! Cheers!!
