Belated Eid Mubarak, How to Handle Greetings

On this day of Eid, wishing all my wonderful readers happiness and the heartiest thoughts today and throughout the year.

As we all know, this is the time where we exchange greetings with our loved ones and the ones we care for.

Long ago, people used to send greetings cards (I am sure some do, even today). Now, I just love greeting cards, for many reasons, for one, once I receive the card, I imagine what that person has gone through for the card to reach me. Lets walk through the steps: 1. He must have gone to a stationary shop, selected a card especially for me. 2. Gone home, sat down and thought what to write, so I know those words are meant for me. 3. Gone to the post office and mail the card. And 4, my fav, the card was written in a person's own handwriting, now thats what makes it special, nothing tops that. The thing is, a lot of people stopped sending cards, they found you have to write so many cards, takes up a lot of time, plus the cards were getting costly, and yes, the postal charges are quite high, so cards became things of the past.

Then came emails, you just select your contacts, write a message once, press send, its gone in seconds. It later turned out, some people stopped using their emails, bec of too many forwards and junk mails. Also, during holidays people dont check their emails, so you get greetings after holiday, too bad eh?

What now? Well, its the little beast called SMS. With SMS, you wait until the first person sends you a msg, then forward it to everyone on your list except the first person. Then wait a few mins for someone else to send, and forward to the first victim. Now whats so bad about that. Nothing bad at all. Did anyone ever wonder where the first person got his sms from? I always do.

The thing is, all we do is forward some well written piece to the contacts list. OK, it makes me happy to receive the well written note, but where is the personal touch, for me, I am a very sentimental person. I love to see personal touch in there, but I guess those days are gone.

I wonder what is next...

Comments:
Eid Mubarak to you as well.

I do think that you should generalise the way you did, some people buy physical cards in bulks, they find a pack of 10 or 20 and write the same thing in all of them and just post them in one go, it does not have to be personal. The same goes for email and SMS. You should never underappreciate the fact that somebody still remembered you and actually sent that forwarded text message, that actually means a lot to many.
 
Blue chi,

Thanks for dropping by. Actually I do that on birthdays, I buy a stack and send out once in a while. I agree the SMS means someone outthere thinks about you, but imagine the difference it would make if you have a hand written card, signed, and with your name on it. Or maybe am just too sentimental?
 
Eid Mubarak Nash!

I like receiving handwritten cards too. Don't know why, but getting something through the mail always makes me happy.

And true, even with sms's or ecards, it does mean that a person took sometime to think of what to write and chose something he/she thought you might like and most importantly remembered you on this special occasion.

Yet...

I find more personal when I get something that is handwritten. That's why I love getting birthday cards, or sometimes xmas cards from my friends because they know I'm definitly sending them a card too.
 
What I do when I send greeting smses is that I write my own greeting .. I dont just forward anything I get .. it helps making it more personalized .. and I do get people replying me back personalized messages.
 
dear nash, i would PERSONALLY like to wish you a very happy eid. ofcourse now i'm like a week late. sorry! you know what's annoying about eid mubarak via sms? i get charged by sprint every time someone sms's me. :(
 
Noors,

On the other hand, we have to accept it that since they have included us in the list, they must be thinking about us. Maybe that helps a bit. But I would prefer handwritten any time. Oh well, wishful thinking :)

Princess,

Looks like you have a unique set of friends, they personalize their greetings, or is it that I have a weird set of friends?
 
phaedrus,

Thanks, now that makes a big difference bec I know the message is meant for me :)
Really, and I always thought Sprint was better than AT&T. Maybe its time to switch?
 
Hi'Nash!

Thank you fore the wisit.
Most of my readers know english.
I writing my page in both language.

I love to get cards And miss the personal toutch.
Open my door and there I find a card from countrys far away.

Welcome to my blog Fancy,

Thanks for the visit, Its nice to have a visitor from Sweden. The closest I have been to Sweden is riding in a Volvo :) But I do plan to visit soon, to collect my long due Nobel Prize :)

By the way, I am from Oman currently living in UK. Its all in my profile which needs to be fixed...
 
NASH….
you are amazing…
you just like reading my thoughts…

I used to adore sending a personal and regular mails to my friends …especially cards…I even made my own cards and my own drawings…that was so lovely and my friends loved that and started to imitate me :)
…I love to touch and smell and look deep to hand writings of each friend…with different way and different style…
Step by step… I moved to internet and e-mails and greetings sites… while now I just do exactly what you said…send same greeting or SMS to whole list in my mobile and waiting for another cute one to send it back to first sender :D LOL… sometimes I got same SMS…go go and return to me ;)

It's the fast life we are in now…stole us emotionally :(
 
Hi'Nash and thank you. Hope you will tell me when you arriwe, I shour want to guide you.

Cards, I will use a drum now with smoke signal...*LOL*...

//Fancy
 
hi, happy eyd! Phew this week was too busy to open blogs!

Nash, I agree with you. I love sending greeting card I create it my own! And you know what? I have a little talent of painting artistry :D

I usually use photoshop to put and modified images, usually pictures that contains me and the person I send the card to. I add some lovely writtings such as poems, but I use handwriting for telling things I wanna say to the person. Then I printed it on to photo paper (paper used to print photos). Then I send it via post (the ancient way hahah). Tiring, but so fun!

Offcourse those are for special people such as my gangs and relatives. For others I just use SMS :D

~Can't help not to comment lol.
 
Dear Sama,

Its sad, but I guess we have to live with it. Dont worry, next Eid I will send you a personal card, that should make a difference :)

Technology has help us stay in touch, but it also has its down side. Maybe we just need to make better use of it.

Hi Fancy,

I will sure let you know, once I arrive, I will have to avoid your winter though...
Drum with smoke signal, now that will be original :)

Someguy,

Welcome back, Wow, you really go through a lot sending cards. I would love to receive those cards from you. Its nice to see some people with sentiment. With people like you around, looks like there is still a hope for the future.
 
Nash
Sorry that you are lost,
I will send you some comfort;-)

islamic choco,

Thanks for dropping by, exactly right. Ppl just end up forwarding everything that comes their way, SMS, emails etc, no more originality. I sometimes wonder of those messages originate from Telecoms Service Providers.

Thanks for the eid greetings. Now I feel special :)
 
neaaah not sentimental side, but welll just say, expression of my artistic side of me :D
 
Someguy,

Still, I am sure it makes the recipient feel special...
 
Nash..
If you order icecream in Sweden you say "glass" ...LOL*...

You dont have any good jokes?
Do you have some d***y one...*LOL*

//Fancy
 
when i was in pak, a lot of messages were sent by sms, and not cards like it used to be 10 yrs ago. sms is way more popular then even e-cards now. its fast, quick, and to the point. however, i dont like the forwarded standard eid greetings because its impersonal. anyways, i am back from my break and i look forward to updating myself on your blog.

mansur
 
Hi' Nash.
Are you still lost in the blogsphere...*LOL*...

//Fancy
 
Hi Fancy,

I have found my way, am just a bit tied up, but am gonna untie myself. New post coming up soon, I promise :)

Thanks for looking me up...
 
Hey...NASH

update dear.

Where's your new post?!
 
Mansur,

Thanks, we all seem to agree that forwarded messages are impersonal, but ironically we all send thme. As for me, I send over 50 greeting messages, Imagine if I had to personalise.


Sama dear,

I am going to update, thanks for the reminder :)
 
OKAY!

:)

Sexy storie …
My 14-year-old sister Megan came bounding into the kitchen wearing her black bikini. I had little time to react before she jumped up and wrapped her arms and legs around me. She squealed loudly in my ear and I had to grab onto the counter to keep from falling over.
… I leaned down over her body and licked along her nipples once gain. I slowly dragged my tongue down her stomach and tickled her sides. She giggled and I laughed too. My sweet baby sis, still so ticklish. My sweet baby sis, who I was about to make love to.
I love lolitas !! and sex :)
Young lolita it is a best !!!

I gathered a couple of pillows and put them under my head and chest and raised my butt up.
It didn't take us long to get into position and he was soon sliding himself into me very slowly.
He was right, his ukraine top child was touching some places it missed when we did it with him lying on top of me.
When he had himself buried he began long slow thrusts while pulling me back to him with a hand on each of my hips.
A few minutes of that and he let one hand go and reached around and gently massaged a nipple.
Between his young model driving deep inside of me and his fingers on my breast I knew I was going to explode quickly. "Don, I'm going to preteen model
"Honey, see if you can hold back a bit and maybe we can puss pedo at the same time.""I'll try."
I felt him stroking the shaft of his lolita while the head was in me and moving it in and out of me ever so slowly.
I could see what he was doing.
He was getting himself aroused with jacking himself off with only part of his preteen bbs in me so he could try and free teen porn at the same time as I would.
I could feel the heat rising in me and I threw my ass back at him and drove his preteen sample video all the way in as I felt my orgasm come over me. "Don I'm coming."
 
I found some search engines.
But i dont understand the type it.

I knew my mom was hot from the time I hit puberty. As soon as I began masturbating I was fantasizing about her. And later, in high school all the guys were always over to use my pool in the summer, hoping she would be home from work or be tanning on the weekends. Mom rarely disappointed too, sunning herself in a modest two-piece on the weekends while all my male friends gawked at her. If she ever knew she was the neighborhood hot mom she never gave any indication.
The older I got the more I thought about mom and every girl I dated was compared to her. I had a steady girlfriend through high school, but a careful eye would have seen that she was just a younger version of my mom and when I was with my girlfriend I often imagined she was my Mom. Not that she needed a younger version of herself. Mom was twenty-two when she had me, so when I was in high school she was in her thirties and looked like she could have been in her twenties. Mom had been a beauty queen in high school and the years hadnÒt diminished her looks one bit. Her long, sunny blond hair still fell past her shoulders, I used to play with it all the time when I was little, and her eyes still sparkled blue. And Mom has kept her amazing body. Seeing old pictures I think it got better after she had two kids. Her ass is rounder and plumper than when she was a teen and her breasts look heavier, theyÒre 36CÒs, I know from checking out her bras in the laundry, too. Sometimes thinking about Mom just makes my cock ach
e.
So anyway, IÒm twenty-two now, the same age that Mom was when she had me and sheÒs been my lover for over two years now. I found a way to make my fantasies come true when I was nineteen and away at college. They say that the meeting of all those different cultures and ideas is good. I know it was for me. Some of you may think what I did to get my Mom was wrong, but I canÒt say I have any regrets. HereÒs my story.
My freshman year at college I met this exchange student from India named free erotic sex stories. Saji was a great guy and we decided that we would be roommates during our sophomore year. When we became roommates we became the best of friends and I took him back home for a weekend. He stayed in the guest room and we had a great time. And I could tell by the way he looked at my Mom that free french very young 16 yrs old wanted her just as much as all my friends always had. But Saji was different. He actually said something. We were drinking in the dorm one night.
Dude, would you get pissed if I told you something? free galleri teen porn asked, taking a swig of his beer.
I donÒt think so. Try me. I replied.
Well, I have not been able to stop thinking about your mother. She is such a hottie.
I didnÒt know what to say, so I agreed.
She came to check on me the first night, she was standing in the doorway and I could see right through her nightgown. I felt really bad about thinking of your mother that way, but I couldnÒt help it.
I knew just the nightgown he was talking about. It always drove me crazy too. I tried to make him feel better, and maybe me too a little. If you think you feel bad, think how I feel. IÒm her son!
What? You think your mother is hot too? free gay anal was very surprised.
I had told him a little so I didnÒt see what there was to loose by telling him the rest. Dude, IÒve been fantasizing about my mom since I was a kid. How could I not? SheÒs like a goddess. free gay sex nodded his agreement. Sometimes I think I am doomed to never be completely happy with another girl.
So would you? You knowÅ I thought I knew what he meant, but didnÒt say anything. If you could, Saji continued, would you be with her?
IÅIÅuh, hell, of course I would. As weird as thatÒs supposed to be, I would in a heartbeat. Just thinking about it got me hard. But dude, there is no way she would ever even think about it. She loves my dad way too much. That part was true. My parents acted like they were as in love as the day they met. My dad worked hard and that meant being on business trips a few days every month, going to some regional office or another and every time he came back I would be able to hear my parents making love from down the hallway. My mother was so loud every time she came. Believe me, that had provided more fodder for fantasy than a hundred pornos could. And anyway, she would probably hate me, think I am some disgusting little freak if she knew how I feel.
There was a glint in SajiÒs eyes now. What if I could do something to help you? If I could make your fantasy come true, would you do it then?
I had no idea what he was talking about. It was all academic, so I said, Sure.
Then this is your lucky day, friend. free incest hentai went on to tell me how back in India his family was well-regarded herbalists and medicine men and that when his father came to this country he brought much of his knowledge with him. Saji had been studying with his father for as far back as he could remember his father had been mixing up elixirs that healed the family far faster than western medicine had to offer. But what Saji had to help me was not a medicine, he said. It was something his father would not teach him and Saji had only been able to learn by sneaking into his fatherÒs journals. What was it? Now that Saji had teased me I had to know what he was talking about. There was a mixture of powdered herbs that when combined acted like a psychotropic agent. What the hell was that, I asked him. Saji smiled and simply said, Mind control.
YouÒre out of your mind. What, am I going to hypnotize my mother into sleeping with me? I snorted.
No, itÒs nothing as clumsy as you would see in a movie, Saji told me. This, he said, worked over time. Several weeks to a month, depending on how strong-willed the subject was. Well, I knew Mom was pretty strong-willed. The subject did not turn into a zombie and best of all they had no idea what was happening. As far as the subject was concerned all of their thoughts and feelings were coming from them.
So why are you offering me this ancient family secret? I asked. There had to be a catch.
Because youÒre the only person here whoÒs truly been a friend to me. And, obviously I expect you to tell me every detail.
I donÒt know why I made the show of struggling over my decision, but I did. After a few minutes of silence I told Saji, Okay, what do I have to do?
When Saji went home for Spring Break he mixed up some of the herbs. Of course he wouldnÒt tell me what was in the mixture he brought back, but he assured me that it wouldnÒt do anything to hurt my mother. He handed me a big ziplock baggie of something that looked like green tea, but ground up more finely, and some written instructions, along with a vial of an amber oil. Saji said it had a very slight, bitter taste, but depending on what I slipped it into she would never notice. The oil was the activator. It was to be used after the herbs had softened Mom up. Lucky for me Mom has a cup of tea every evening after dinner, Saji said that should work perfectly because it would probably start kicking in when she was ready for bed.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
