Going against Gender Stereotypes

Note:- This is again one of the tag posts that I am doing. I loved the theme, so decided to scribble something.

I am so unlike the dime a dozen damsels.
--> There was a time (I guess , I was 16 -17 then) when everyone in my family used to say :-
"She is a guy embodied in a female anatomy." :D

--> I learnt to ride my Papa's "tardy" scooter at the tender (yet impish) age of 12 :-P . I scraped my knees., encountered a few "not so serious" accidents , but finally learnt to ride it . I used to flaunt this feat of mine in front of the bully guys of my colony & often invited them to ride a pillion on my bike :-P
As a result of this, 5-6 boys had even girded up their loins to hone their "biking skills" . :-D

--> I am not so concerned about my looks. My hair usually stays in a disheveled condition & I detest undoing the tangles. Cosmetics, nail-polishes ....eew....they are a big NO-NO for me! I love my tanned complexion . :-P
I am not a shopaholic . My fashion statement :- A decent dress (a salwar-kameez preferably , I hate flashy colors ) , a wrist-watch(I have a fetish for wrist watches) & a good hair-do. Thats it!
I hate those big chunks of jewelry , especially those tacky ear-loops (I call them "jhumkas"):D

--> I've never fancied for all the good-looking heros that the girls usually go bananas over . I hate overtly good-looking, dumb-head guys. My definition of "handsome" is different. (Lets not get into that)

--> I am brash , my demeanor is not that feminine. I walk brusquely. I lack a gentle gait .

--> I laugh my heart out. That full on devilish "HAHAHAHAHA" :-D

--> I've a pretty good sense of humor (If it's wrong, then pelt stones at my friends) :-D
(Girls are infamous for having a poor sense of humor. How many girls do you know who actually have a good sense of humor , huh? )

--> As a matter of fact, I have never read "Mills & Boon" (touted as the "Baap of romance":-P) etcetera (although, I am fairly romantic:-P)

--> I get audacious , at times. I had even slapped a guy at school . I have had bad (real bad) arguments with my classmates & I believe in taking a stance .

--> I am upfront, short-tempered & I don't keep my feelings in confinement.

That's it! Apart from these, I've all the girlish traits as in :-
1. I love chick flicks .
2. I am a die-hard romantic & an INSANE lover.
3.I love to cook food & I like smelling good (I have a fetish for perfumes too)
4. I don't crack X-rated jokes .
5.I am a crybaby .
6. & I am a bit shy too. :)

P.S. :- I won't tag anyone . Whoever, wills to write a post, can do it with elan.
See ya in my next! :)

My heart will go on....

I set my "racing heart" free & all that you'll read,has been penned down by an unrestrained heart.
I have let "your love" devour me & you know, it's one of the nicest,one of the truest, one of the divinest feelings, I have ever experienced. You have rekindled a spark of perpetual happiness in me. I find you walking right next to me. I feel your presence everywhere . You are in my prayers , in everything that you can think of! :)
I smile sheepishly all day long because your silly words keep buzzing in my ears. You know, I love doodling your name on the last page of my diary.
You have resuscitated me, my dear! Doesn't that sum it all up? Writing is such an otiose job!Let me put it aside & permit me to be short & succinct.
"I am incomplete without you."

Pulp-'o'-Pa(u)l----> The Nostradamus of 2010 ????

So, what's the latest fever the world is gripped in?
Well,that's passe . Its an 8-armed psychic Octopus Pulp-o-Paul or Pulpo-Paal (our very own Desi version) that has the world under it's tentacles!
A zero legged , spinal cord lacking animal that apparently looks way smarter than us bipeds.An invertebrate that not even in it's wildest fantasies would have thought that it would create such a stir among zoologists,scientists,paranormal researchers & what not, from every nook & corner in the world!
A new baffling hypothesis trying to answer Paul's so called "CLAIRVOYANCE" is proposed each day & there is a large section of the world that does believe in it's "chamatkari" powers! Some Indians have even venerated it as "PAAL BABA"

Phew! Hullabaloo of an enormous degree all around!
Jai ho Paal baba ki!!!!
