Spam email headline et al

I received this nice pic and the following quote from one of the groups I’m a member of.

“No one is born happy. But all of us are born with the ability to create happiness. So, today make others happy. Good morning and have a day full of smiles.”

As I said some time back, these spam email titles deserve to be compiled into a joke book. So, just to begin a ROFL post, here goes: (Mind you, I do not click on any of these messages-no telling how many hundreds of other spammers might get’ encouraged’ to send their proposals. Ready? Here goes:

- Alone at India gate? Or with India date?
- Be Godly in bed
- Fast and safe male enhancement
- Make your intimate nights longer
- You want to make luv everywhere? Ask us how
- She will give her heart to you for incredible night
- Top tips on getting laid
- Amaze your lady into submission
- Three ways to start a new intimate life full of pleasure and delight

Now, those are the 'less lustful' headlines. The rest might lead to my blog getting banned out here, if I reproduce them here. So, no chances taken. *clicks ‘delete all’ button on gmail spam mail*.

I feel quite astonished, these days, when I go for my evening walk. I usually begin it with a ‘ masala tea in a matki’ (Earthen bowl) at Bombay Chowpatty(probably coz it gives the energy required to walk an hour or more. LOL ) Of course, this month,during the day, all these places are either closed, or, they give ‘parcel/packing service’, nicely sealed so that you don’t get tempted to eat/drink while on the road(And, risk imprisonment if caught). In the evening, suddenly, there’s a rush of foodies(And, no, most of them do not seem to be the ones who’re fasting during the day). At BC itself, I see people sitting expectantly at the tables, gazing at their watches, and waiting for The Moment when the gorging on food can begin.

Anyway, I finish the tea quickly, and, go off on my walk, headphones and all. On the way, I guess I pass around 20-25 restaurants, most of them Indian. And, each one of them has at least 15-20 people sitting, at such an early time.

- It makes me wonder-either people have started taking care of their health, and, have dinner early, so that it gets digested. Or
- Many are bachelors, who reach home by 230-300 PM this month, go to sleep since there’s nothing to do, with alarm set for 630 PM. And, feeling ravenous at that time, they rush to the restaurants. Or, even if they are sitting watching TV, they feel hungry, not having the pressure of work which they usually do. or/and
- Others might be family guys, but, with wives who are as equally enthusiastic about tasting the evening delicacies as they are about fasting from cooking at home throughout the month.
- In front of one of these restaurants, I actually saw 5-6 people standing in a queue patiently, waiting for it to open.
Should we call that the height of hungriness? Because, till last week, the weather was so sultry and humid that standing like that would just kill the appetite rather than whetting it.

Laff-time:

"Get this," the husband chuckled. "That ridiculous janitor of ours claims he's made love to every woman in the building except one." "Hmmmm," said his wife, assuming a thoughtful, faraway expression, "must be that stuck-up Mrs. Frobisher on the fourth floor"

Ohh, I never knew the area where I stay in Dubai is famous. Just chanced upon this article in Wikipedia. Of course, Wiki is a goldmine of info about any and everything, so perhaps I’ll check out Baroda, next.

Till next time, keep smiling.
