WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?

At last count,

Parul
Itchy
Cee Kay
Birds Eye View
Nisha
Mona
Kiran
Gauri
Noon
Sunita
Y
Sue
Asha
Daisy
Broom

and any others I might have left out are playing FAIR GAME and driving me crazy!

So far, I have figured out that MTBs are Mother To Bes. Have I got that right, folks? And is it an online shower for the all the Preggies? If so, I am begging to be invited to the said blog. Happy? Please do so before I go bald. And if its nothing to do with me and I have put my big foot in my mouth thinking that the whole world revolves around me, I dont care! Just let me know. So that I can go make lunch and get my kid ready for school without refreshing Brooms page every 2 seconds.

By the way, I landed on Brooms blog first. Boy, was that confusing! So who started all this? Some brain, I tell ya! Come on, out with it.

Updating the list:
Sujatha
Sahithis Mom
Eves Lungs

Phew! So I got something right! I know I said I dont care but I did!! But then, you knew that already!! ;)
So waiting for the "Desi Moms" to get up, huh? No hurry, I can wait. Meanwhile, I ll just keep updating the list. Oh, almost forgot, got to drop the kid at school, got to drop the kid at school, got to drop the kid at school,...

We just wanted to confirm that !!!! and you just did !!!

I rest my case :-D

Thank you Boo !!! :-D

Asha said...

@Gauri - Hilarious!!

Lavs said...

I just caught on this stuff. If you can update all the links[I do not know some bloggers in the list that you have made uptil now], then I will form a sequence of words...Let our powers combine:-0.....

EAch blog gives one letter and then they give a clue to next blog by describing the blogger....damn, did these guys know that I am suffering from scatterbrain syndrome

mummyjaan said...

Good luck, Boo!

mummyjaan said...

Oh, Lavs! Good luck to you too!

Lavs said...

bird's eye view said...

karmickids said...

Boo sweetie, lol, cmon get thinking...
and you too lavs

neha vish said...

Dipali is one of them too! This is driving me up the wall.. what is it!?! :)

Poppins said...

You forgot Mystic Margarita, Chronic Worrier, Dipali,

Poppins said...

Here are some of the sequences I've cracked.. Lavs, let's do it Come on!

Aargee->E-> Itchy->I-> Parul-> F ->Sue -> E -> ?

Sunita -> A ->Mona - R ->?

Kiran - I -> Daisy - V ->?

Sahithi's -> blank ->Eves Lungs->N->?

Noon - P ->Nisha -I -> (?)

Tharini said...

what?? what's going on?? Why didn't anyone tell me about this? Boo....I'm just as lost as you. Can you fill me in please??

Lavs said...

[poppins]- there are two blanks..what are they for??? one blank means that's where the id and password separates..two blanks???

Sahiti's --blank
sujata--blank

Lavs said...

where does this clue start?? has someone found out???

Poppins said...

No idea where it starts Lavs..
Here's my rest of the list:
BEV -K -> ?
Sujatha -blank- >?
Ceekay ->R -> (?)Upsi
Asha -> T ->Choxbox?
Broom -> W
Gauri ->R->?
Y-> Blank->?
Suki-> E->?
Dipali->L->?
Mystic ->O ->?
Mummyjaan-> U-> Chronic Worrier -> E->?
Add your clues please!

Lavs said...

my clues??? I just figured out this one

Itching to write-I
Parul-F

Sahiti-blank followed by Eve's lungs-N

I simply cannot figure out others..wait ...I am yet to read every clue..looks like i am running around in circles...half the bloggers i do not know...am randomly searching mummy bloggers site using google...and some clues are so tough!! :-(

Lavs said...

poppins-you are far ahead of me....is there only you, me and boo who are figuring out..where are the rest???

Maggie said...

I just logged on, and my reader had some 15 posts with the same title! I thought it was a virus! :-) I even googled it to check! LOL! :-D

Ok, figured out it's a hunt for the id password to the online baby shower - and looks like Poppins and Lavs have already done a lot of work - I'm off to figure it out too... :-)

Lavs said...

am on internet for one hour...and I have no idea whose blogs i have visited and whose i have not..did i leave a comment or not????

Will take a break for one hour and come back with a vengeance...

Will also have a book and pen and try to work from poppin's work...and see whether i can validate her answers...if yes, then we are on the sure path for victory!!

Lavs said...

[Maggie]-Do check on poppin's work...our combined efforts can bear fruit!!!

I do not know half the bloggers...that means i have to read all their posts to get to know them for me to crack these clues....and I do not see it happening in one night:-(

Poppins said...

And oh yeah, I thought Daisy's blog (dharshadallu) led to MNamma, but there are no posts on Mnamma's blog.

And I thought Sue's clue led to Dee (Houston + Chintu + H/W engg) but Dee has not updated her blog.

Plus I don't know if the Parul->Sue link is correct.

Maggie, come on use your MBA brains here !

Poppins said...

And yes I thought Mona's (babystory.wordpress) led to YaadaYaada - chatters nonstop, blogging aunt (to Ashu ofcourse) etc . But nope no updates from yaadayaada.wordpress.com

Maggie said...

Ok, so we collect the letters (and blanks) for the id and password in sequence - the only problem is, I don't think all the posts are up yet, because there seem to be gaps in the chain. Also, I haven't quite figured out where the beginning is, so it's all very confusing. Great fun, though! :-)

B o o said...

Poppins - You got them all right. Sues is deerags.blogspot and Daisys is Mnamma. Both are definite. Lets wait for updates from them. The "Amreekans" are taking their time! ;) Monas might be Yaadayaada, if Utbt had any hand in this. Its really a maze out there. Im off to pick up Ashu from school. Will be back and lets crack this even if it means my kid goes to bed hungry tonight! ;)

Lavs - Now, dont stress yourself too much. Relax, girl! United we win!

Kodis mom - Wakey, wakey and give us a hand here!

Tharini - Why do I feel like not trusting you on this? ;)

Birds eye view - Oh cut it out! If you had announced earlier, you would be with us on this side of the fence! *so can I expect a private email ;)*

Neha - Ask our pal Broom and send me a mail! ;)

Maggie - Any luck?

Anonymous said...

Boo, Why are not a prime minister of a country yet? :-)

Anonymous said...

What about the ones whose blogs you dont visit frequently but where the whole thing might start >???

Compulsive Dreamer said...

ROFL! All the best to you!

Lavs said...

could M & N denote ceekay's blog???

Sunita said...

:) Hugs to all you girls .... God ...WOW!!!

Love you all. I can't stop smiling.

Maggie said...

Ok, chains ending in unsolvables for me:

Silent One - W - Sue - E - Dee - K - ?
Dipali - L - Gauri - R - ?
Argee - E - Itchy - I - Parul - Mystic Margarita? - O - ?

Sahiti's Mom - blank - Eve's Lungs - N - ?

Chains that appear to stop because there are still posts to come:

Noon - P - Nisha - I - Dotmom - yet to post.

Kiran - I - Daisy - V - Mnamma - yet to post.

Asha - T - Choxbox - yet to post.

Sunita - A - Mona -R - Yaadayaada? - yet to post

Other unsolvables for me so far:

And the blanks:
Y, Sujatha, and compulsive dreamer

Ok, so I'm off to bed now - Kodi's Mom and other ladies who'll be online in the night, please to continue the good work! :-)

B o o said...

Poppins - Eves lungs points to compulsive dreamer.

And so far FOUR blanks. So I dont think its a login and pwd. Its a message! Right aa?

SilentOne said...

This is so so much fun (for us I mean)...am sure its for you too..

B o o said...

Ok, our MM has joined too. With another blank! Would have been great if the message was all blank. Would have been so easy to crack! ;)

And DDmom too - whose riddle points to Sujatha of blogpourri and the letter S.

GettingThereNow said...

Oh, I am having F-U-N!! Haven't even checked my work email yet. ROFL!!!

Good going girls.

Oh I LOVE it! Good luck to you all!

eve's lungs said...

clever girl ! you'd make a great snoop!!!

eve's lungs said...

oh BTW :P and :)

B o o said...

Collection of Stars has posted with the letter O and it points to CK. Do cross check people!

Desi Girl - Where art thou?

B o o said...

Maggie - silent ones can point to Broom too, right?

B o o said...

Poppins - It IS yaadayaada! Grrr....

yaadayaada said...

He He He.. This is Fun!! :-)

Sue said...

Boo, Lavs, Poppin's Mom, Maggie -- I don't know about you ladies, but I have to admit I'm having fun. :P

Poppins said...

Dee posted too Her letter points to K (deerags.blogspot.com).

Dee comes from Sue

Where does Dee go - no clue!

Sue said...

*laughs in sinister fashion at Poppin's Mom's comment just above this one*

Mystic Margarita said...

You girls are doing great....hope you're having as much fun as I am! :D

desigirl said...

I knew MM had a hand in this. Wait till I get my hands on her. When I quizzed her this morning, you shld've heard her: "who? moi? noo! nobody loves me!" I'll show you, you lying minx!! And she tried to feed me some palaver about signing me up for some arbid baby group and to expect an email from Gauri.....

And then Suj acted all giggly and not at all ha ha funny when I tried to corner her in Gtalk. grrr...

If I flunk my course, I shall place the blame squarely on these giggling laydees' shoulders.

pah!

Sorry am not helping out with the clues. My mind is too full of Data Protection Act and PHP and SQL and CSS to be of any use to anyone, let alone me. Now, if everyone can somehow stop themselves from going potty by tomorrow, all will be revealed, they say.....

B o o said...

Poppins - Yonearthnot to nosh and rehs mom and nosh and reh in return to silentone. Phew! that took me 30 mins. silent one to Broom, I think!
and Yaadayaada just called to gloat and apparently she has taken an oath so got nothing from her, the blood traitor!

desigirl said...

Ok, Dotmom has joined the bandwagon too. as have Utbtkids...

And yes we need a username and password to get us into this:
http://showerbabyshower.blogspot.com/

ok so let's get cracking.

Lavs said...

I have one question!

When "they" say everything will be revealed tomorrow, do they mean that only by tomorrow will everyone complete posting their clues??? Are we breaking our heads too early???

B o o said...

DG - So sorry! Forgot about the exams! You dont worry girl! Even if we all die trying, you will be there to celebrate the victory!! ;)

desigirl said...

Boo,
not to worry. These enterprising characters could teach Hansel and Gretel a thing or two about breadcrumb trail, that's all am saying.....

From what I hear, we will get an email from one of this lot which shld help us get the ball rolling. I don't think they'd want preggie women to be hyperventilating and shooting BPs, now, right?

Maggie said...

Couldn't sleep - got one word so far - it's PINK!

P - Noon
I - Nisha
N - Dotmom
K - Bird's Eye View

For once this insomnia's not so bad! :-)

Tharini said...

Lavs said...

HA HA HA!! *evil laugh*

Finally a smart one figures out how to go about it. Curiosity kills the cat. let the madness continue!

the mad momma said...

gosh you preggies are so darn suspicious. we're not up to anything.

desigirl said...

Christ! Ams has joined this group too. This is what she has to say for herself:

The letter ” G “

Write it down, add it on…
And let’s move on to the next little song

“Signed up on the house-a-spouse program,
The lady’s the answer to this epigram.
Blogging with a husband on a blog with style
She’s got the look that’ll make your hunt worthwhile.”

Kodi's Mom said...

WHAT THE HELL is going on???
*deer in the headlights!*
Calling for an emergency meeting of all MTBs

B o o said...

Lavs - I dont think everyone has posted yet. And even if they all did, by the time we find ALL of them, our newborns would have started teething! But then, Boo is not known for quitting. Actually, she is known for quitting but then not without trying! So we try. And then... give up. What say? :)

DotMom said...

Girls, girls.. I really think this could be a virus. There is a post on my blog???? Who is doing this??

Maggie said...

DesiGirl: You mean Gauri's promised friday evening mail will give us the clue?

DotMom said...

ok.. i am subscribing to the comments.. what's happening here?

SilentOne said...

Kodi's mom - have the meeting here.. this is meeting central - boo's comment window..

Gosh have never laughed so much in my entire life.. and to think this might all be a wild goose chase (till the 'real stuff' unfolds tomorrow )...

*** evil grin***

desigirl said...

Maggie,

Gauri or one of the lot - right now I am taking every thing the MM says with a hefty pinch of salt. But I think we will get an email invitation that will help start the proceedings and end up in the http://showerbabyshower.blogspot.com/ site.

So I say let us sit back and see who all starts singing from the same song sheet. And we'll get back at them by leading such a merry dance for the baby pix too! What say fellow MTBs?

B o o said...

DG - Now you are talking! No baby pics, I say!

And Tharini - Gotcha! See I knew you were in this you "whats going on? I dont have a clue" you! chee, chee, chee! Shame on you!

Dot Mom - We preggies are throwing a shower for ourselves, thats what is going on! Clear? *rolling eyes

desigirl said...

Boy I sure hope we don't crash your server - the comments are coming thick and fast, Boo!

Ok here are the clues as I see them - well, apart from the random alphabets that are being flung at us from every which way -

Clue 1. There's some sort of baby shower site that has been set up.
Clue 2. Site content has got something to do with doulas, "bunch of ladies who support natural birth techniques and give you little tips" - or something along those lines.
Clue 3. We shld be getting an email from diff peeps from this coven to help us along on our quest.

What else have we got? I say let us all pause and see what else is going to happen.

Kodi's Mom said...

For the first time in my life, I HATE HATE being in the central time zone. I am so f***** late to the party (I am the last, aren't I) damn, damn! but am catching up fast. Solved a bunch on an excel spreadsheet (!!) ...but I have been warned - "You wont get anywhere - you will be going around in circles all of today. wait till tomorrow, till 2am CST"

but got to say, whoever came up with the little 4 liners - clever, clever! nice job, gals!

Tharini said...

Smart smart Desigirl. Smart smart one.

You suggest the right counsel. Take a break y'all. Get some food into your tummies. Get some sleep. Tomorrow is a brand new day. And who knows what it will hold?

Now don't go about sabotaging our efforts with all the sleuthing. You've had ur practice run. Now buzz off and make the "right" start tmrw.

titiafen!
One of the Peeps.

Trishna said...

hee heee haw haw haw!
Have fun ladies!

the mad momma said...

Kodi's mom abusing? this i gotta watch. calm down KM - you're preggie remember? oh wait - how can you forget? :p

desigirl said...

Ahh I knew you had a hand in this, Tharini!! I bow to whoever came up with this one and like I told MM, there are some darned good rhymers amongst you lot. Pat pat on the back for the lot of you!

Am off to Kumon, y'all. See you all at the shower! ;)

Trishna said...

LOL!! look at these preggies.. getting MAD!! Boo rolling eyes and K's mom using "Bad words"LOL

Sunita said...

"Clue 2. Site content has got something to do with doulas, "bunch of ladies who support natural birth techniques and give you little tips" - or something along those lines.
" - Its a gem.
:D HA HA HA HA

I am sorry Desigirl...I have tears in my eyes now. You made me cry.

Kodi's Mom said...

MM: what can I say, you lot have brought out the "best" in us hormone laden preggies

so it all ends at Broom's. Me thinks the two words we string together will be the password for the blog. And as DG said, we'll get
an invite tomorrow.

and now I have to actually work... (yea, right, like I can get anything done)

desigirl said...

sunita,
stop it you wretch! that was a quote from a nameless somebody, who might have well been feeding me bull. gah!
am getting cross now! grrrr

Maggie said...

Kodi's Mom: why can't I see you on gmail chat? We should swap excel sheets! :-)

Anyway, found some more links - DDMom - Sujatha - Rayshma - Broom. Not making any sense word wise though - that's S-blank-E-W.

I'm guessing there are a few red herrings thrown in there, but this so much fun, I can't stop!

Upsi said...

......And this just in:
Kodis mom just used the mighty "F" word.
Boo's Ashu will be late for pick up.

Coming up...
"What is Poppins up to?"
"Did DG bet on the right pony?"
"Lavs is speeding up and about to get a ticket"
====

Such fun! Such fun!!

Kodi's Mom said...

Maggie: who says the letters we find are in sequence? it is a ploy to throw us off. will email you (and all other MTBs too). look what the rhymes are doing to me!

now I am off to wring Upsi - The Papparazzi's neck.

B o o said...

Upsi - If only you could see our faces now! Would make such nice picures to go with your headlines! Grr...

Swati said...

wow ..this is getting damn interesting :) Good work MTB's ..all the best for tomorrow

Broom said...

because I'm so sweet
I'll help you along
One of your guesses
is simply wrong.

Which one it is,
I cannot say.
Well I can, but won't
Much to your dismay.

Sunita said...

Since we cant click you, can you please click yourselves. We did love to see you please ...beg you to..on my knees.

Sujatha said...

Oh, God! This is so much fun! Never imagined this would turn out this way!!!

Just Like That said...

:-) :-) :-) :-) :-D :-D :-D :-D ROTFL!!!!!

Lavs said...

For once, I know beforehand what I am going to dream about!!!

And if I do not sleep well, you all know who "are" the reasons...

All MTBs--lets do a conference chat!!!heck, we are spread across so many time zones....

We can create one google spreadsheet and give access to all MTBs to fill in their comments...clue/ answers....Maggie has got two words!! I have only alphabets swimming in front of my eyes:-0

Will wake up tomorrow morning early to catch up on other comments!!!!

Aditi's Album said...

Am having so much fun after i saw this post from Boo this morning, that I have actually had to put my hand over my mouth to control laughter at work. People sitting beside me would have sure wondered what was happenning to me all day! Could not concentrate on work and was having good fun. Enjoy MTB's. You sure have cracked the clues. Good job!And Boo, I'm waiting to see the 100th comment here.

Just Like That said...

:-) :-) :-) :-) :-D :-D :-D :-D ROTFL!!!!!

Nisha said...

OMG... I was away for a couple of hours and you have almost 100 comments.

Get some rest girls. Tomorrow you'll all have some help through the email. Don't get your BPs rising. Did you girls at least eat? Did you feed the kids? Bcos I didn't. I'm glued to the comp from morning and enjoying every bit.

Daisy said...

This is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much fun!!!
love you all dear MTBs..

Get some rest for today
for tomorrow is,but a brand new day!

choxbox said...

Sue said...

Boo, this popped up on my radar and I read it once more and -- har de har har.

So much fun. :D I remember you scrambling around and us scrambling around trying to keep you MTBs distracted. Aw.

Sue said...

Maggie, Poppy, har de har har to you too. Also Lavs.
