NOTHING 6: Overheard On Orkut !

NOTHING 6: Overheard On Orkut !
(Yes, we alliterate and write haikus. We're talented.)

Introducing AMI

Don't make fun of NOTHING or it will make fun of you.

Folks today is the NOTHING day and we have special appearances by people who make their voices heard in the comments section so often. So without giving myself any further opportunities to nitpick your brains, allow me to introduce the newest NOTHING cast member: Amiya aka AMI.

Now AMI has been the bread and butter for which I usually write these series and the less I write about her the better it is for my future health. Though I can safely add these details without endangering my box:

1. I sincerely asked she didn't tell me.
2.I groveled I cried still no answer.
3.I promised a chocolate cheese cake ,it melted but she didn't.
4.Now you get the meaning of that pic.

Now you know there is something about the spring weather that gives you that sudden zap in the feet. Romantic and adventurous if you know what I mean I'm not much of a ladies' man but this particular evening I wanted to do something like building the Leaning Tower of Pisa. You know architectural disaster but still something that people from all over the world goto and try and correct it with one hand and a clever photographer(hint) .So with this in mind I initiated this NOTHING.Read on.

AMI: Bleh!!

Me: I do understand in fact let me digress and tell you about the three verb forms of BLEH . They are BLA ... BLU...BLEH

AMI: Wrong! It's BLEH...BLU... BLAH. Minus five to you. [1]

Me: Sarcastic, that is not me.
Maybe I am in the wrong scrap book.
Amiya is hot.

AMI: No no, right scrapbook. Damn right she's hot, I kinda umm... fancy her myself y'know.[2]

Me: Rhythmic pulse beckons.
I am ravenous for your love.
please pass the ketchup.

AMI: That does not rhyme. Appeal disqualified. Next.

Me: Imagination,
Skewed, broken mind.
Wonderful eyes. YOU !

AMI: Content appreciated!! But still does not rhyme, you!

Me: ha ha ha ha ha
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha [3]
ha ha ha ha ha

Okay, ha ha ha rhymes. Good, 10 points for that. But minus fifty for zero content.
You're slipping dooood, you're in the red now. Buck up. And...

Why are you laughing?
This little game called life is [4]
Deadly serious.

Me: Those elegant words
Uttered by a true prophet,
Role model, Tupac.

[1]: Blimey ,I knew she always wanted to be a teacher but dang it she starting out early.

[2]:Ahh you see she's excited now,There There go back to sleep now and keep dreaming

: Break in by AMI: Huh, who told you that? Facing the bored blank stupid faces of a zillion kids yawning in front of me is NOT my idea of the perfect profession. OR vocation, for that matter.

The Haiku originates in Japan.There are a lot of opinions as to what makes a haiku, even amongst the Japanese.The most widely accepted rules for the original Japanese haiku are a lot stricter than for other languages, such as English.A lot of contemporary writers are of the opinion that a haiku can be written without adherence to the Japanese rules.Detailed below are, perhaps, the strictest rules for an English language haiku:

Haiku = 3 short verses of poetry that do not rhyme.
Format = 5x
(where x = number of syllables)

Deals with a moment of observation or enlightenment in nature.
Contains a word alluding to a season.
Content is specific.
Has no title.
Western Haikus can deal with any subject under the sun and DO NOT HAVE TO RHYME

[4] : Finally she gets it!

The quality of your NOTHINGs is improving. Wonder why. Could it be the all new cast?

The punctuation too, it delights me to say, is improving. Wonder why again. *suppressed grin*

But I have to say
Verses sound nice when they rhyme
I can haiku too.
[i](AND rhyme, ha)[/i]

So. When's the next NOTHING coming out?
