Answers to Bushra's questions.. (she had only two besides the "11 something about me")

2) Have you made any blogging friends? Who are they?
= I have met some wonderful people; Bushra, Richa, Jack, Indrani and many others, through blogging and though, I don't know whether the mutual admiration can be termed as friendship yet... but, I am sure I can safely say, we are somewhere around that zone.
