It's about NOTHING

Seinfeld became popular for being a show about nothing. So this post is going to be just that.....nothing!!

I never thought I could dry up of things to write about. The loud, talkative punju in me...completely acquired, none genetic....made me believe that I would never lose an opportunity to keep talking!! And here I am at a loss of story....yet itching to blog....So here's a round up of my life in the last couple of weeks.

I've been traveling all over the place....Bombay, Pune, Chennai...the works! And here are snippets of thoughts from time spent on the move....

Flying not a piece of cake
Despite the many miles I have gathered at the expense of my erstwhile employers, I still get the jitters when I see a plane. I still need to shut my eyes and grab my seat and pray when the plane takes off...and I also let out an expletive at the pilot when he doesn't brake within 5 seconds of the plane landing. Also, the diet goes for a toss because you want to eat up everything they serve you on flight cause
a. You're cheap and think you've paid for it.
b. It helps you kill time on the scary flight and keeps your mind off the turbulence
c. You keep thinking the flight will crash any minute and you don't want to die on an empty stomach!

OSO
Got to see OSO in Pune. For those who've had the luxury of watching a movie from front row corner seats will know that it's not the best way to watch a movie you've been dying to watch. For starters, you see the entire movie through what seems to be a funny mirror. Everyone looks stretched or fat and highly distorted. So beautiful Deepika Padukone looks like a giraffe, Kiron Kher looks like she has 3 hips and SRK struts around with a 12 pack!! Liked the movie anyhow. I'm a sucker for slapstick and obvious jokes make me feel smart! Hmmmm....

Bridget Jones I'm not
And on the flight, I borrowed another chick flick novel from my colleague and while these books make for pleasurable reading, I no longer relate to them because
a. All stories revolve around women who are single and have some hot man falling in love with them. Don't remember the last time someone wrote about someone in a happy relationship
b. All stories are either about this "slightly large" woman like Bridget or these skinny model type executives. Now for the first kind, I look back longingly at my "slightly large" days and a "large pumpkin" is a more befitting description for me. And I don't feel like a smart executive cause feeling dumb is an understatement of what I actually feel at work!
c. Every female protagonist has a bunch of female friends and one gay friend who all fancy her prospective boyfriend. I have no gay friends and I'm not sure what I'd do around a gay friend in the first place! And I definitely don't want anyone fancying my boyfriend! Hmph!
d. They always have a smoking or drinking problem. Where have all the good girls gone??

Anyway, I've had enough of this nonsensical post so I'm going to go give my beautification another unsuccessful shot. The parlour lady beckons to tell me how much weight I've put on now....

Till then.....

O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil.

Renovatio said...

But we love a little extra weight being put on, we love curves, right? Say it with me, you love your curves. That's also why I hate model types. No curves and dumb as nails.

Nice New Guy said...

The good part about being something like a "large pumpkin" is that you can proudly claim "There are not many men in this world who can hold me in their arms." (replace 'can' with 'dare to' as and when appropriate).

I envy your boyfriend.

just like seinfeld i like this post too!..Jerry Seinfeld is my favourite stand up comedian..which i like more than the show itself..

and btw men dont find flying jittery coz those air hostesses have a really calming effect on you..you know..even if the plane crashes it is always a pleasure to die with one of em!!;-P

Still searching said...

I loved, no ok, really liked, OSO! I thought the timing of the comedy was actually pretty good, in the first half atleast! 2nd half with SRK touching his crotch every 5 mins was a little over the top for me! Anyways, very entertaining!

And I supposed people dont write about happy relationships because remember all fairy tales end with "happily ever after"?!! End of story :)) Hehehe... Just kidding :)

Still searching said...

And totally agree with Adarsh that the best part of OSO was "yenna rascalla"!!! just too funny, i had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard!

P.s. typo in my previous comment! - "I suppose", not "I supposed"! I hate bad grammer!! :(

IR said...

ohhhh....you must have read 'Almost Single' - I picked it up from airport Shankars on one of my trips last year....and shall regret it for the rest of my life! And I see that Reno has already registered his fondness for curves and we shall leave it at that...
