Do forgive the's the weekend

My stickam player just gave me a mini heart attack with that sudden screeching sound it made. I apologise if it's done that to you before. I don't know how to prevent it. Bad bad stickam player! Is anyone else in love with the 'Follow you into the dark' song by Death Cab for Cutie? Its on my playlist [song number 2 as of now]. Tell me what you think so we can gush over it together.

Just some things you simply must check out today. Ross the intern's blog [Yeah the same guy from The Tonight Show]. He's on my favourite bloggers list. Do check him out. He's adorable. Also do read this. Falstaff, brilliant as usual. He did make me mad when he wrote that World Cup post but he's too brilliant a writer to ignore.

I'm super happy today because i just received a really pretty kurta from Fabindia. I love it. Thanks Sunnu. Also its Saturday afternoon - well technically evening i guess but considering what time i awoke its still afternoon. The thought that i will go to sleep tonight and wake up tomorrow and not have to go to work makes me very happy.

I realised today that i have all these drafts sitting around that i've been too lazy to look at again. They're all blog posts that I started to write at some point and never completed. Since I'm not excited enough to write about them again and i would hate to throw them away i decided I'm just going to post them here. Yes you heard that right. Unedited half written blog posts follow:

1) If u don't read urban dictionary first thing in the morning everyday u need to start. That and this blog. Today's word was 'disco nap' - sleeping when ya got something goin' later on that you need to get ready for. For example: "i was about to go to the club, but i needed a disco nap to feel refreshed."
This made me very happy because I've done it many times but didn't know there was a word for it. Also it has the word 'disco' in it and u all know I've been trying very hard to get someone to name their pet/child 'disco' but no one will listen.

More super cool words include:
'Girl crush' - feelings of admiration and adoration which a girl has for another girl, without wanting to shag said girl. a nonsexual attraction, usually based on veneration at some level. For example: "I have a girl crush on a girl from a band. she can sing, she's GORGEOUS, she's doing an awesome degree and she's intelligent. i want to BE her."

'I'm not gay seat' - A seat at a movie theater located directly between two homophobic straight males who are attending the film together. For example: "This theater wouldn't be so crowded if there weren't so many 'Im not gay seats' being taken! GAWD"

So see? It's fabulous. Do favourite it.

2) I have fascinating news today! According to my spam folder i won the lottery... again! I'm so lucky!!!
K this is my Orkut post. Supposedly every Desi blogger has to have one.
So i got on this thing a few months ago and I'm addicted. I'm still not sure how to pronounce it though. Orkut is just a very odd sound. No?
So you know how you can see who visits your profile? That's always the first thing i check when i log on. The creepy part is there's no way of finding out how much time that person spent checking your profile out. Depending on how many scraps you have and how stalkerish this person is it could've been hours. That's scary. Anyway say you're checking out the profile of the person who just 'visited' your profile how quickly do you dismiss them? Is there a particular system you use? Bad grammar, cheesy movie/music choice or is it their album or even better the captions that go with the album pictures?

3) Ive decided to start a new thingy on my blog where i will discuss random people I've met over the years who have provided much entertainment, humour, sadness, frustration, anger etc.. and generally made life much more interesting. I'm going to start with a man known as Sofa Pant. I'm not sure why i thought of him this morning but i just did. Anyway Sofa Pant was a lecturer in college and i cant for the life of me remember what subject he taught us. I know it was business related. If you are one of the lucky people who have had the privilege of meeting Sofa Pant feel free to add stuff you remember about him. His name was pretty easy to come up with since his pants looked like they were made from Sofa material. Big checks, medium checks and little checks in various dull sofa material colours. Sofa pant was absolutely hilarious to listen to. His English wasn't terrible but his usage was just all wrong. He was very tall and if i had to think of a celebrity he sort of resembled it would be Kramer from Seinfeld minus the strange hair. The cool thing about Sofa pant was that he was not afraid to smoke right outside campus. Every two hours he would be seen with his sutta near the construction site staring at the bricks and at his shoes. R claims the one thing she remembers about him was his underwear which she could see through his transparent pants. I could never make such observations because from where i sat i could barely see the blackboard and that was the way i liked it.

4) I read this a while back and left a super long comment which has either still to be approved or even worse been deleted. Anyway it was about one's favourite things. These [at that moment] were mine:

drive through Starbucks
Georgia mud fudge blizzards [from DQ]
hand soap that looks liquid but comes out as foam
mornings [before you have to start getting work done...just that period between the first cup of coffee and checking emails and watching bits of news]
long drives [in my case on the way to work everyday] when things suddenly hit u [not like automobile type things just life type things]
hot showers
your best friends [the real ones and moments in the middle of conversations when u know they get u in a way no one else can/will]
doing things that make u realise u really do like yourself
pedicures and the feeling right after
bright yellow tulips
going to the theatre to watch a movie you've been dying to see forever
an unexpected comment on your blog
winning a close cricket match
new shoes/bags/clothes/pretty earrings
putting on one of your gazillion perfumes and remembering all sorts of people and places that go with it.

I have got to be the World's laziest blogger no? Swalpa adjust maadi till i think of something brilliant to write about.

Karan said...

@Pri - i'm so glad you finally spelt 'stickam' right. :)

also, 'sofa pant' ? What kind of a name is that? We had this dude we called 'allout' as in the mosquito repellent allout 'coz he used to put his tongue out till it almost touched his chin after every few words he said.. For tif first month or so we couldn't control our laughter.. Then we stopped attending class.

Pri said...

um who? i know people also called him bandu if that helps.

Pri said...

@karen: i always spell stickam right. do u not have anything better to do than check for typos?

Drama Queen said...

Hey Pri, are you talking about Bando?? He only was all-out I think.. Eww... He was such a horrible teacher. Always picking on me. All the time!!=(
And yes, I'm leaving to Melb in 2 months. Tickets booked and all. Blah!!
I don't want to go!!!!!!!!! =,(

Pri said...

@drama queen: um karen being a boy didnt go to our college so he obviously isnt talking about the same person. i can understand your confusion though...
and did u study at our block too? cause i thought u were on the main cmapus in which case u wouldnt have had bandu teaching u.

I read tat bit about girl crush a while back too. I also remember reading about "bipoding". They come up with some strange stuff.

I've got quite a few drafts too... altho... I don't think i'll ever post 'em. They all end mid subject and mid sentence!

And it's odd eh? Everyone's been talking about Orkut these days!
