Thought for the day: Sometimes I think I understand everything,then I regain consciousness.
Television news is no longer what it used to be. Isn't it a fact? Earlier, the only news we could look forward to was what politicians did during the day. Now, we have everything in the news,in fact,sometimes,I find news channels more entertaining than the entertainment channels. Take,for example, NDTV-they give live temperatures from around the world, along with a video of the place too,right from Holland to London to Jaipur....that's much more exciting than a guy pointing at a map and showing clouds or the sun,na?
Or, take the Bollywood gossip on another news channel,which had as it's highlight, the fact that Mallika Sherawat is busy slapping these days. No,no,not slapping as in angry slaps,but,slapping as in,part of her role in a movie called 'Ugly aur Pagli'(What a title!), where she has to keep slapping Ranvir Shenoy. It also pointed out that she took slapping lessons,to perfect the art..Whew! I wonder whether this could be a course of the future,and you could do Phd in it?
Anyone seen her on Koffee with Karan(The recent episode,not the earlier one), where Sanjay Leela Bhansali was present? She was so frank and clear in her,err,'liberated' thoughts,that I am sure I could see Karan and Sanjay blushing at some of her answers.Hehe..right from saying that she has a superiority complex where men are concerned,to admitting that she hates going to pseudo parties,she was the star of the show,definitely,even though the rapidfire round had Sanjay getting the coffee hamper.
On to the '10 things' article I mentioned last time. I'm still not sure whether the article was supposed to be humorous or serious or both.Confirmations,please!
It's from an article from a mag I like(sadly,it's not available in Dubai),and it's titled
'10 things men don't know about women'. (Keshi,u asked about this in your comment,remember?Now,answer them!)...
1. Good looks and a good body,do not make our world go round. Some of us prefer men with more substance. For starters, intelligence,a sense of humour and common sense would work well.
2. Women are actually bigger go-getters than menWe are savvy,street smart,more feisty,and we don't always need to be protected.
3. We really do like men who are themselves. We don't like men who are pretentious,pretend to be super cool or macho.We can see through that act,you know.
4.We have s*x as much on our mind as you do.
5. Pedicures,mancures,shavingchest hair and your face work for us.We don't like the unkept look.The cleaner you are,the cooler you are.
6.Using bath gels,lovely face washes and foam baths is really cool with us...just don't filch any of ours.
7.We are adventurous too. Be it with food,travel,spice or even in bed.Spare us the monotony,please.
8.We accept that men are better cooks.And a man who's handy in the kitchen is a real turn-on.The way to a woman's heart is also through her stomach.
9.We wish you would accept that men love to be wooed.You love the romance,the flowers,chocolates and cards.
10.Women do get over things- in a snap.We don't nag or need aeons to get over you.
On to the end jokes:
-Why do we wash BATH towels? Aren't we clean when we use them? If not then what was the purpose of the bath?
- One woman says to another, "I can't understand why you haven't gone to see that new gynaecologist yet!"
"Mine gynecologist is fine. I don't need to change." But the new one's so young and handsome, while your gynecologist is so old!"
The other woman replies with a smile, "Yeah, I know. His hands shake all the time!"
Till next time,keep smiling.
