Guest Post: by Aunty G

27 Jan

Kick-starting the first of seven guest posts (for reference, read this one) is our one and only Aunty G: limerick queen, top commenter on this blog, and my blog-mamma! 🙂


A request from OJ has just come
About how our saga had begun
So, here we go
If you’d like to know
In the next six verses, our tale will be spun!


The way I met OJ
Was fairy-tale-fey
I addressed a namesake
A serendip mistake
On a divine Navroze day!


She politely replied
That I’d misapplied
I returned the courtesy
Then burst the ecstasy
When complete names were supplied!


Co-incidences galore
Then came to the fore
She guided me to blog
Her praise I greedily did hog
Her friends added to my Y!360 score!


Eventually, I met my first blog friend
But that was, happily, not the end
Our families met too
The Boy also, before the ‘I do’
From then on, the love and affection could only ascend!


We share our sorrows and joys
She’s a daughter — I’ve only boys
Her writing I greatly admire
Gladly sink into WWNP’s quagmire
Then, limerickly, add to the comments my noise!


So, on this splendid 7th Anniversary

I wish that she be forever free
To weave her words
Like soaring birds
Blessings, and love and hugs from your Aunty G!

    I am ashamed to say that I check your blog 2-3 times a days in the hopes that you churned out a new post. Thats how much I dig your writings. Anyway (s);-)…looks like I win the award for FTC. And to keep my frequent commenter status active, here I am am, yet again.

    Always loved Aunty G’s limerick-she really is the Queen. cant wait for the next guest post.

    Awwwww, Aunty G!

    Your comments are a delight
    Making each post so bright
    a sweet little trick
    is each limerick
    That is always perfectly right.

    Dear Aunty G,

    There’s a gem of a poster named G
    Whose words tickle my toes with glee
    Ain’t nothing so slick
    Like her limerick
    She’s too cool to be called an Aunty!

    Love your limericks, Aunty G. I look forward to it almost as much as I look forward to more posts from OJ. This one was especially lovely! 🙂

    Aunty G: *dances around a bonfire singing “Lovefest, lovefest!”* :mrgreen:

    sukanyabora: No need for shame! I do the same with HHC. And I assure you I’m not injurious to health. 😉

    dipali, Null Pointer, R: You guys are the sweetest. I’m sure Aunty G will respond to your comments shortly. And limerickly.

    Sukanyabora, am sorry i pipped your post
    For FTC today i played the unknowing host
    Since comments are moderated
    We’re in suspense till we’re rated
    We must find out who scores the most!
    My dear Dipali
    You lit me like divali
    Considering me perfect
    Has had a great effect
    You can hitch a ride anytime on my savaari!
    Null Pointer, my dear, i’m fifty-nine
    So being called Aunty is truly just fine
    A toast to your toes
    (May they ne’er have woes)
    Your words sparkled me like champagne and wine!
    Majuscule R — now that’s quite regal
    Coupling OJ and me makes me soar like an eagle
    May we often meet
    On OJ’s blogging street
    Having so much fun shouldn’t be legal!
    And OJ, you precious pixie
    You’ve put me in a mixie
    Compelling me to churn
    Limericks at every turn
    It’s a good thing my address doesn’t have a nixie!

    Hi OJ! I’m relatively a new reader of this blog. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, stories, experiences! Goes without saying, you write so well!
    Note for Aunty G – Aunty G, I have really enjoyed reading your limericks! I have sent you a message. 🙂

  9. the mad momma January 30, 2013 at 11:57 pm #

    Aunty G is a superstar!

  10. Aunty G. February 1, 2013 at 2:47 am #

    Aanya, thank you for your little note
    All these compliments make me gloat
    Your message hasn’t reached me yet
    Lost in this media-maze, i’ll bet
    Though, on Facebook, you can find me as Gulshan Gev Bamboat!
    Oh, the mad momma, superstar i’m not
    Just love limericks a whole lot
    It’s been quite a while
    Since i stopped at your stile
    Hope Fortune’s been fair in your Life’s slot!

    Aunty G: By that comment I am floored
    In my estimation you just soared
    It’s so plain to see
    Why our darling Aunty G
    Is universally adored

    aanya: Thank you, and welcome to this space. 🙂

    the mad momma: Isn’t she just? :mrgreen:

    Aunty G, the message was sent via the messaging feature on Facebook. : )

  13. Aunty G. February 2, 2013 at 9:44 pm #

    Humph! Kateef with Facebook
    Not letting it off the hook
    Your message is not got
    Did you write a lot?
    I’ve gone again to have a look!

  14. pr February 3, 2013 at 7:42 am #

    Hi Aunty G! Possibly the message is filed under Other; the Other tab shows next to Inbox under the Messages module. In any case, I shall copy it herewith. It is a simple note conveying admiration for your limerick writing talent!
    “Aunty G.,
    If I were to describe my experience of reading your limericks on OJ’s blog in one word, it would be divine. I truly can’t express how much I am in awe of you!
    I am relatively a new reader of OJ’s writings. The blog is great.
    I am not much of a writer (nor do I have a blog). However, reading your limericks has brought about a new resolution for the year – to write three limericks.
    The kindness, creativity, and intelligence you transpire is amazing and inspirational.

  15. Aunty G. February 3, 2013 at 10:13 am #

    Ufff-O! So dumb of me
    The ‘Other’ i did not see
    Thank you, my dear
    You bring me cheer
    And, go for it, Girl, limerickly!

  16. Orange Jammies February 13, 2013 at 8:26 am #

    pr: Thank you!

    I’m loving all the interaction! Carry on, you guys.

    Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an very long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up.

    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Regardless, just wanted to say excellent blog!
