Quick on the draw

I was Google chatting with this famous guy blogger the other day. The chat went thus:

Him: You on Orkut?
Me: I was, not any more
Him: Why?
Me: Well, it is more like a pick up zone...
guys seem to think it is a place to meet girls
Him: That's what I heard
I am in Orkut...
but no has tried to pick me up yet
Do you think there is something wrong with me? :)
Me: ROFLMAO!!!!

hehe, sounds like the Master of Mirth himself!

Speaking of which - are you on Orkut? Or any of those messenger thingies? :P

Praveen said...

hahaha, cant stop laughing :)

Fleiger said...

Somebody told me once that Orkut is pick-up zone, and some people have actually met their future halves there...
Why do these things happen to other people? :(

@fleiger...
"Why do these things happen to other people? :("
Iam the understander, comrade! ;-)

@silv-maybe orkut has evolved...maybe you should try again &-)

Fleiger said...

@Ganja Turtle: I am planning to start a community of people who don't get hooked up on Orkut. And then the pairs will leave the community once they get together... Hows the idea? ;)

Ganja Turtle said...

@fleiger-cool,lets get silverine and her funny friends to join too! ;-) lol!

Alexis said...

LI said...

Wonder when you get time for chatting :)

silverine said...

G and Praveen: Things are so different from a guys and gals viewpoint, this endorses it :))

Fleiger and GT: All the best with the new venture ;)

bvn: I was swamped with scrap entries and so many add on requests and that's why I pulled out, I didn't have the time then and now it's worse :)

Alexis: :)

mathew: I didn't need therapy, the volume of mails made me run for my life out of Orkut!!! :p

Li: LOL true I really have no time, this was on a weeekend :)

1:55 PM

alex said...

Orkut can be used for all purposes, from academic discussions to flirting. Depends on the individual.

Lol..what an honest and innocent question!

b v n said...

nice :)..yr boss must be reading this *i presume*...no time huh..LOL

actually i have a team of professionals managing my orkut and GTalk...me too swamped..'ope my boss reads silverine's blog :))

Fleiger said...

@Ganja Turtle: Sure, but I am not sure how many "experienced" people would be in our community ;)

@Silverine: Thanks, but did you see a major part of our success depends on you and your friends joining our community?

silverine said...

bvn: rofl good one!!!

fleiger:I will have to regretfully decline for now :p

silverine said...

Alex: It was not an innocent question but sense of humor :)

Ganja Turtle said...

@silvie-babe, think again...unlimited breezers during those friendly huddles at mojos...

Fleiger said...

@Silverine: Ganja Turtle has answered on our behalf ;)

Ajith said...

:) A very innocent question .:))). Orkut has worked for some ppl..My friend after months of intense orkutting and scrapping found a girl friend through that :)..Its very addictive though, with all those nonsense communities.

Mind Curry said...

orkut? yawnn... coffee at barista anyone?

Jiby said...

a friend's sis was saying she intended to change her status to committed, to keep away strangers who keeping sending friend requests hoping to get lucky! now, will we guys ever get to see it, the other way around...gals hitting on us in orkut!

Jagan said...

orkut ..pick up point ..hmm..in that sense , friend's party or attending a family function is a pick up point..will u stop going to partys or functions bcos some guy approached u ??

Anoop G said...

orkut is better than bharathmatrimony.com !

also it will have many guys suiting modern girl's spec - say "live-in relationships" :))

silverine said...

fleiger: I think I have replied your question to GT :))

ajith: It was an example of being quick on the draw :)

Jagan: I am yet to attend a wedding that is a pick up point with girls with screen names and emails IDs.

mind curry: You are yawning, you need the cofee :p

Jiby: That is a good idea indeed, but in my case I just don't have the time nor resources like BVN :)

Anoop: And how do you know that? ;)

iyer education said...

orkut... chirkut... chitrakut... whatever you want to call it... i am on it and i rarely use it... saala bahut pakaoo hai... blogs are much better i say...

and i havent shared this before, i get more hits on my blog than on my orkut profile... which also means i never get hit on orkut either... just like your friend there

alex said...

LoL..
Humour taken...
:)

quills said...

Done the tag. :)

Jagan said...

ha ha ..I was just trying to suggest that why not ignore the people who use it as a pick up point and just reply to ur friends or people whom u know ..its really nice to catch up with old friends and yapp about the school days :-)

Anoop G said...

Anoop: And how do you know that? ;)

>> i was an active orkuttan till my company banned the site! :)

silverine said...

Iyer Education: LOL
grr I tell you these gals need their brains examined!!! You on Orkut and they don't "hit" on you? Preposterous!! (said with a stiff upper lip :P )

Alex: :)

Jagan: Actually my blogger pals were really nice on Orkut ..it was the riff raff that put me off !!!

anoop g: Aha!!! ;)

Jeseem said...

is there anything wrong in meeting girls in orkut ?
I find it a good place.
hmm..
however i hate the site for not having even basic privacy features.

pophabhi said...

Orkut and Pickup Zone?
Maybe time to start a community called Pickup Truck and Tipper Lorry service in Orkut.
May attract many people. Let me login. :)

silverine said...

Pophabhi: LOL
