Since it’s almost thanksgiving(or is it over already?) and we don’t really celebrate it all that much here in India, I decided to do a post on things that I am NOT thankful for. I
stole got inspired by Phil Taylor’s list of things he’s thankful for.
Before you leave the page after throwing me a look of distaste ‘Great! Another man-hating woman, give me something new already.’
Hear read me out. This particular external organ annoys me because of the ease at which it can be ‘flipped,emptied and shoved back’. I don’t know about your place, but here in India you are bound to see ample amount of people relieving themselves on the footpath. I see my fair share of penises when I go out for a walk. No, it’s not a dream come true.
- Movie trailers
I really can’t blame anyone for this, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to not write about it. What is the POINT of even spending money to watch a film in the big screen when you have already seen the crucial scenes in the trailer. I find this especially applicable to horror movies. I am already an idiot to spend money for a fortnight of nightmares and mind torture, don’t make me feel more bad about it by showing me scenes I have already seen in the trailer. UGH! Or maybe I should just skip the trailer and watch the movie. With my luck, It will be a movie based on a forgotten war. I’ll just never win, I guess.
- White clothes
Am I the only one who drops curry(I’m an Indian, must be the billionth time I’m using that as an excuse) at odd places and in the end have to do a little Macarena with my purse to cover the most obvious stains at parties? The mannequin makes it seem so easy – ‘look at me, Simple and elegant’. Macarena during funerals(we wear white) aren’t very elegant. Or simple.
- Sensitive people
I confess, I cried while watching Lion King. OK FINE , I MAY STILL CRY. But I can often, if not always take a little joke at my expense every once in a while. I know a bunch of ‘sensitive’ folks who can be a great sport while pulling another person’s legs but if the same events were to be reversed, *BOOM BAM* Enter the little tiny bastards to defend them, that can convict you without a slightest evidence, gushing down their cheeks.
Pre-menstrual syndrome. While it may be used as an excuse once in a while, it does not give you the right to act like you can get away with everything. As a woman, I’m guilty of using this as an excuse when I don’t want to explain my pointless actions. As a human, I HATE it when someone uses this reason to justify acting like a bitch. Since I feel my allegiance lies more with humans than women, I have to agree it’s annoying. I’m half expecting someone to come up with ‘not guilty-on account of PMS, your honor’ during a murder trail.
Anyways, these are the few things that I can think of at the present since I’m a bundle of sunshine usually and also because I know I won’t stop if I continue and WordPress will call me an ungrateful blogger spoiling the spirit of thanksgiving and I’ll probably..cry or something. Happy thanksgiving you all!! 😀
