296. The Or-Cut Bug

Are you smitten by the orkut bug?

Orkut was a part of my life for three years and i was so much addicted to it that i ended up having my food in front of the computer. My study timings were exchanged for the time i spent on orkut. Even i stopped going out and meeting friends. The addiction was so deep that I started using orkutian terms in my day to day language.In offiicial meetings, I would tell my boss that I would leave him a scrap about my work-status.

My experience with the un-avoidable devil, "Orkut" even made me to send a friend request to Penelope Cruz. She even accepted my request and she started scrapping me in some unknown language. It must have been Spanish or Latin because I did not understand a single word.When I finally attained self-actualisation in orkut, i decided to write two important posts for Orkut users.
These two posts changed the lives of many DeSpErAtE souls. I am adding the two posts yet again , because I want to change the life of some more DeSpErAtE souls.

1.Orkut for Men

2.Orkut for women

I also take this opportunity to announce that I joined orkut again this week and I stayed there for 3 days. I re-lived some of my old moments and then quit from the scene for-ever.Yes! I deactivated my orkut account for eternal bondage.As I intended to pen this post as an inspirational post, i'd like to end it with a piece of advice.Well it gives me great happiness and pleasure in knowing that even a nutty person like me can start giving advices through blogs.If Darkha-Butt can say what ever she wants in her TV-channel, even I can give advices through my blog. Don't you agree with me people?

Advice
"Run away from an addiction before the addiction addicts you". I did not get it right this time. Let me rephrase this sentence for the benefit of my readers. " Run away from addiction after the addiction addicts you".Now I am confused about one thing. I guess the first trial statement was right.
Let me make an operational definition for the term Addiction before I come back to the advice part.Addiction- " It is like a vegetarian having Chicken pox. He has chicken in him;but still he is a vegetarian".Now I forgot the subject on which I originally intended to advice you all. Can you please advice me?

  3. Deactivating the account appears to be right option if you are way too addicted.

  16. Onnumae puriyavillai indha advice. But i deleted my Orkut account a year back. Tired of all the "i want to make fraandship" requests when you KNOW thats the last thing they want. Even facebook is getting quite lame.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I was "getting" addicted when I decided to stay away: that was still when I had an account. Now I stay out: too many very good memories associated with it whose bearers are not around in my life. Plus, I am not interested anymore in any of the social networking websites!


    I used to spend a lot of time on Orkut too and yeah that seems like a year and half and a lifetime back;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I used to b addicted to orkut some 1-2 yrs back. Not anymore.... :)

    ReplyDelete

    wil try to come out of it soon.. :P

    ReplyDelete
  20. Dude....... Orkut SUCKS....

    FB rocks :)

    and no am not addicted to it... maybe I was an addict to the FB addiction for the first few days but then the addiction to stay away from addiction kicked in and I became a non addict to the addiction... err... watever...

    With respect to the case of the vegetarian and the chicken pox... it would be the same as a non-vegetarian dude being covered with vegetable pulp... :P

    Enjoy the lovely weather there... cheers...

    ReplyDelete
  21. dint quite understand the underlined statement.....:(

    ReplyDelete
  43. U could have tried not replying to scraps.In due course, you would have eventually gotten rid of ur addiction because u wouldn't get any scraps either ! :) But then again, if you were hunk on Orkut, this wouldn't have worked either. I want to get unlogged from computer as a whole.I t would be just so human to go back to write-a-letter days!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Great one, so is the addiction stopped completely?

    ReplyDelete
  45. hahaha! i think i have to re-do my profile now :P
    PS: you're still on orkut the last time i checked!

    ReplyDelete
  46. hmmm..
    glad i checked my addiction fr orkut .. but it go transferred to blogs !!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I am with all these nteworking websites from twitter (which is the 'in' thing:P), FB, Orkut . I wouldn call it an addiction, but indeed used to be orkutting for quite sometime. Now, Its abt sending tweets and I am hooked with this!

    ReplyDelete
  48. did you delete ur new orkut profile too?

    ReplyDelete
  49. orkut surely is a addiction and i am yet to decipher your message on addiction. Hope that after 5 read i will get it.

    I was once addicted to yahoo chat but due to my job and stuffs the addiction was cured and i am very much happy for that
