War And Love




Hey guys. Are you shocked? Yep dear sir, Mark ain't here. People do deserve a break, whether it's a candy break, lunch break, or even patience break. Happens to everyone, doesn't it?
You - yes, dammit, I'm talking to YOU, the viewer/reader/guy with lots on time on her/his hand (Ladies first, anyone?) - would probably be wondering, "Man, who the hell is this anooying brat? Ain't he got no respect for such a dignified person like me at all?" Well, if you're not a reader of my blog, my answer is, "Not many, if any." (I hope you realize I'm kidding. Mark's probably going to send a noose for me if he realizes I made his readers go away - which ain't nice.)
So, dear friend/fiend, my name's kbbudingwriter. At least, my blogging alias is. Not many people know the the meaning of kb, and hell, I'd like it if the people who knew it, kept it a secret. An open secret, if you will. But the world doesn't revolve around one person, does it? If it did, I'd be the richest man on the face of this multiverse, although technically I'd just be a speck on it.
And yes, the name's true - I am a writer. Now now, don't 'sheesh', writers are humans too. Not many realize the fact, though.
So, I am a blogger, and I'm going to shamelessly plug my blog anyway, even if it ruins my dignity and my first impression. It goes by the stupid name of "The world, the way I see it". Lame-o, I know. I'd happily give up chocolate cake for a decade if I got double the readers I have now. No wait, check that.
So, my birthday was on this past 21st (which makes me a year older than what I was before). I'd appreciate if you showed some respect and compassion - qualities nearly gone from this world (true story) - and included a 'happy birthday' in your comments.
I also wanted to showcase my superb (TONGUE FIRMLY IN CHEEK) writing skills. I wrote a little short story, dedicated to the kind, compassionate, always well meaning, and counsellor-esque Mark that he is (you can be sure of it, if it is included in the post and he didn't edit it out). It's about relationships, and a bunch of fighter planes. I solemnly admit that I've never touched the subject of love and fighter planes before, so I'm a bit weak on this one. I do recommend you to check it out. Here's a little what you call 'ishneak-peak':

It took quite a while for the webpage to load. I sat there, in my armchair, looking at the bookshelf right across me. It was untouched for a decade, dust and grime now permanently settled on the shelf and the covers of the books in it. It reminded me of naughty pranksters standing still in a corner, serving punishment while their fake tears covered big, goofy grins.

The video loaded, and as soon as it played, I was dying in my rocking armchair (well, it had a picture of Led Zeppelin on it). It was a relatively new rendition of ‘sitting on tha toilet’, although the rendition itself was a couple years old. I had last watched it five years ago – with Zack.
The full story can be read at:https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=9BCC08510AA9DAAE&id=9BCC08510AA9DAAE%21136&sc=documents#!/view.aspx?cid=9BCC08510AA9DAAE&resid=9BCC08510AA9DAAE%21145 . If you think it's bad, say it. If you think it's good, say it. Free speech is appreciated, unlike what the US govt is trying to apply using the SOPA and PIPA. Oh yeah, I've taken my shot at them too. HAHA!
So, that's going to be probably it. Oh, forgot. you can check my blog out - hell, it's RECOMMENDED - athttp://karanbattu.blogspot.com . 
And please, I BEG YOU, to,
Have a nice day!

A quick note from me, because I wasn't totally gone, I've read the entire story and it is worth the read. So do it! The story is technically called both "The One They Called Nemesis" and "War And Love". Kb decided to change the name after sending it me. Also while I do prefer to stick to one point in a post, Jessie also wrote a very very good short story at her blog, you can find that one at http://theconstantinopleexpress.blogspot.com/2012/01/short-story-elizabeth-everstone-and.html. Go, go now!

    1. It seems to be going just fine for me. It could be because of all the videos I've shared lately.

    1. Writing posts in advance helps a lot but that can also make me lazy because I'll have several posts ready then not write any more until it's crunch time.
