These oracellae nowadays. All bloggy and playing-harpischordy.

Tchah. Pshaw.

You're a loblolly pine scale (oracella). Is what you are. You even sound like a loblolly.

wait wait, first 'tutul' then 'orcaella', Hungry Tide being read.

Lucky you! At least something makes you run...(even if it's with a blunt knife stalking away.)

Orcaella brevirostris said...

srin, yes indeed. hungry tide. tiggers, irrawaddy river dolphins and tutuls. no loblolly pines, you'll notice.

(pointedly ignoring General der Panzertruppe Leo Freiherr Geyr von Schweppenburg)

anyone who's read HT, what's the maharashtrian equivalent of a gamcha?
oh come on, there's got to be one.

arif, you can run too. i'll hand out rusty daggers on dec 18. bangalore half marathon! 20.5k baby!

There isn't a Tamil one, at any rate. We just refer to them as gamchas! But that could be because of the parents' Bengal-Bihar connections..
