I suggested to Hamad that we should start a blog, couple of times before, but we did nothing about it. Last night, it came up again:
mehak: thats why i suggested we start a blog
hamad: u wanna do it?
mehak: i did
hamad: really? can i see?
mehak: see what? i meant i did want to do it
hamad: whats stoppin u
mehak: how can i do a blog like that without you? its supposed to be our conversations
how can i have a converstion without you?? u remember NOTHING!!!
hamad: im ill!
mehak: so would you…think the blog would work? i think our chemistry…if people read…they will connect
hamad: im up for it serious
mehak: you will fizzle out a week 2 tops
hamad: why u say that?
mehak: you get bored easily and you will find less and less time for it then we wont be able to build up an audience
hamad: oh that why u not done it?
mehak: not done what? i cant do it alone
it needs to be spontaneous
it needs chemistry, continuity
hamad: hmm i guess u are right man i fizzle out too easy
mehak: yeah you do
but you have done well with the tutoring
u didnt fizzle out even when things got rough
hamad: i love teaching
mehak: u love writing
hamad: i do
mehak: anyway…it was a good thought
but practically …it wont work
hamad: i want it to
mehak: there will be no readers for a while
but we still have to keep going
tell me why you want to
hamad: i just love writing man
its what i want to do
i thought we were talking about our blog
i did have a feeling …and i mentioned it to you before…that it may get you to start writing
but mybe not i dont know
hamad: no i am
i am talkin bout the blog
it will give me something to focus towards
mehak: i was just thinking we get started warmed up kind of
then get a twitter handle under the same name…
mehak: by that time we will have a feel of it im sure we will do ok
but if it doesnt appear good, we can just scrap it at least we tried
hamad: what shall we call it?
mehak: dunno it has to be catchy
then you and i need names
hamad: hmm lets think about names its gotta be right
2 syllables would be best
mehak: what sort of identities do we want to portray?
hamad: its hard to think u got any name ideas?
mehak: i dont want to go with something like “sweet whatever” it has to be a real name
hamad: mehak = sweet smell yeah?
mehak: cos you need to address me with it sometimes
you the one who suggested mehak…dont u remmeber?
hamad: yes ma’am
mehak: for a story I wanted to write?
GRRRRR! my story? you don’t remember?
hamad: hey, i gave you that name!
mehak: YES! now give yourself a name
hamad: not as easy
mehak: how about an initial or 2 initials?
not a fullname a half name?
hamad: mehak is great
i like it lets stick to 2 syllables
mehak: you would like it…
hamad: wonder why
mehak: ok your name now does yours have to be 2 syllbl?
u need a short name
hamad: yeah man
trust me 2 syllables
hamad: same for the name of the blog
mehak: that will be difficult… name of blog
all the good ones are taken
mehak: wha were u thinkin of?
hamad: im thinking paradox of masculinity n gentleness not so “alpha male” that i sound like a jock
or “tears in moonlight” that i sound like a whiny bitch
mehak: lol thats not 2 sybl!
hamad: i know!
mehak: then it has to be smthin like ChatTing or somthing silly

mehak: it has to show its his n hers kind of thing
hamad: I KNOW! sweetBULLET

hamad: sometimes, i even amaze myself with my brilliance
mehak: thats it
hamad: lol only jk, i amaze myself all the time
mehak: o just shut it

hamad: people used to call me hamad
mehak: what does hamad mean?
hamad: one who always praises

mehak: it sounds short of muhammad
ok so hamad is good
mismatch and mehak are good
missmatch, mehak, hamad
mehak: how is hamad alliteration?
hamad: the m and the a and the 2 syllables
mehak: it shd start with M for alliteration!
anyway they sound good together
how do we start off?
hamad: with an introduction
and this conversation
mehak: ok sounds good
hamad: go on then!
i do the dirty work?
and u get allthe glory?
hamad: sounds good!
lets write out own bios now
mehak: sounds bad!
hamad: paragraph each
mehak: i dont want to write a bio!
our bios will be in the ‘about’ page?
just a snappy paragraph
mehak: hi. im mehak – my name means sweet smelling and i leave a scent that lingers wherever i go. im gentle and loyal and i love to laugh, im easily bullied but also have a quick temper. i met hamad actually i stalked him but made him feel that he initiated out meeting. Im clever like that. hope you enjoy our mismatched conversations. I put in ALL the hard work BTW
hamad: hi i am hamad. im an undiagnosed sociopath with a taste for extreme violence, writing poetry to make up with mehak when i piss her off. and making really lame sarcastic comments. had a colourful background and am currently trying to be deep and emotional and only succeeding to sound like a whiny charachter from twilight. come out with some good stuff now and again.
mehak: cut the extreme violence part out
hamad: nah leave it
hamad: makes it edgy
hamad: trust me
mehak: you appear as a woman beater
tone it down a bit
hamad: what do you suggest?
mehak: social misfit
hamad: would you trust me
mehak: and aggression instead of exterem vioulence
hamad: its interesting
mehak: ok now
we need to set up the blog
and twitter accounts
hamad: gotta be gmail
mehak: that we can both access
so we get a gmail address first?
hamad: two s’s
mehak: oh yeah and similar for twitter?
mehak: and then hopefully missmatch is available on wordpress

(Well, that’s how it all started. Of course I searched for the name and I typed/uploaded it all, but then that’s what I always do. I hope he sees this through & also you will keep us company – Love, Mehak)
