Hi! Me got tagged by Rayshma. It's the 22 questions men want an answer to!
*like that's gonna answer all the questions about us women!*

So, here goes

1. How do you feel after a one night stand?
It depends on how the "stand" went!!!

2. Do you ever get used to wearing a thong?
Erm... Should I start now? or later?

3. Does it hurt?
What Hurts? Is there something new out there that I don't know about? how is it done??

4. Do you know when you are acting crazy?
Yeah... Always... that's why it's so much more fun!

5. Does size really matter?
Of course! Always - and YES, it matters with the bank balances and diamonds as well!

6. When the bill comes, are you still a feminist?
No!! Never! Why take away the privilege from you?! *especially when footing a huge bill!*

7. Why do you take so long to get ready?
Like CeeKay says - Perfection is an art and can not be hurried.

8. Do you watch porn, too?
No, it's boring - but, if that's what turns you on - then go ahead - I'll watch you instead!!

9. Will something from Tiffany’s solve everything?
Not really, but it's a start - go ahead and try...

10. Are guys as big of a mystery to you as you are to us?
NO...There really isn't much to understand is there?!

11. Why do you sometimes think you look fat?
I'm giving you a chance to fall flat on your face when you say yes - which is again a lure for something from Tiffany's.

12. Why are you always late?
Please check the answer to #7

13. Does it bother you when we scratch?
Yes. It reminds me of my pet dog at home and a strong urge to say "shoo" arises!

14. Do you wish you could pee standing up?
No... Does that make you feel special? Does it?!

15. Why do so many women cut their hair short as soon as they get married?
It's therapeutic!

16. How often do you think about sex?

Why? Are you thinking about it NOW?

17. What do you think of women who sleep with guys on the first date?
Are we talking about just sleeping here??

18. Would you?
Are you that boring?

19. Do you realize every guy wants a girl just like his mom?
Thankfully, No, he doesn't. Evolution would have taken a back step if that had been the case!

20. Why does every woman think she can change him?
Like Rayshma says - we all "hope" for a better tomorrow... a better future.

21. Does it matter what car I drive?
Nope. Does it matter to you that I'm a better driver?

22. Do you ever fart?
Yes, but since you don't seem to know about it - let's not talk about it either.

I am not going to tag anyone with this, everyone I know has already done the tag! :-)

I am back! after a self-imposed hiatus of more than 15 days...Where was I? Slogging away in the office.
The week after Diwali, my sister fell sick - so, I had to juggle office and had to get home to cook her something since outside food is a strict NO at such times as instructed by my mom!
After that, I fell sick for a couple of days and then, had so much work that some of it was coming out of my nose and ears too!

Oh, the festival rocked and I missed my husband lots!

He will be back by the end of this week and I'm looking forward to opening all those precious gifts he would have got his precious wife! Heh!!
*I did twist his arm just a tiny bit for a couple of earrings I saw on a website though!*


Oh and this weekend - Saturday to be more precise - Me and a friend - we went to Shoppers Stop in Garuda Mall.
There as usual - we didn't buy anything much (I did buy a pair of sandals though - they are so sexy and so comfortable and that m'dears is an awesome combination!)
But, we did comment a lot on most of the stuff and my favorite one is - my friend has a thing for belts - he buys them all the time and so, he saw some belts by Allen Solly and they were really expensive (Rs.900 I think)
He was on the verge of buying one, when I told him - very loudly, in Kannada - "don't buy them here da - try the corner of Brigade Road, you get the same stuff without the brand label for Rs. 100 only!"
Then, turned around to see the salesman glaring away at us!!! We beat it out of there, pretty fast, I tell you!


I also saw this couple with 2 kids at the bus stand while I was going on home for the Diwali weekend -
The Lady was struggling with a huge bag and a kid who wouldn't hold the mom's hand in the crowded bus stand and the guy (read this!) was holding onto the younger kid's hand and the kid's fur lined purse!!! He was also screaming at his wife to hurry up! The poor thing was not only struggling with a heavy bag, but also with a toddler who wouldn't hold still... felt like whacking him on the head!

I saw the movie = "Devil Wears Prada" on Star Movies over the weekend and I didn't like it much. They show the boy friend walking away and the best friend not being supportive because she got good at her job. It also showed Meryl Streep (it's her right? I'm so bad with Hollywood actors' names) getting a divorce again because she is successful... I don't know.... it's just a movie, but are men really that intimidated by powerful and successful women??

I know this lady at work - she hasn't told her husband about her salary hike because it's more than his and she still makes it a point to remove the extra cash from her account before she goes home at the beginning of each month....

Wish you all a very Happy, Prosperous and a Safe Diwali! :-)

Dumbledore's Sexuality

A lot of hue and cry has been raised about the fact that Rowling "declared" that the Headmaster of Hogwarts - Dumbledore is Gay...
The argument has gone on both in the blogging world and out of it. Since, so much has been written about this and instead of hogging the comment's space of fellow bloggers - I decided to post my 2 cents worth on the same topic...
When I first heard/read that "Dumbledore was gay" article on the Internet, my first reaction was - So? How does it matter?
Whether he is a Homo or a Hetero, what does it matter?It's a fictitious character and what does it matter?
Then, I went ahead and read the various reactions to it. The first was - it was a major victory to the LGBT Community.
How is it a victory if a fictional character is declared gay? How is it helping the LGBT community in fighting for their rights/acceptance?

This so-called declaration has made sure that the parents don't let their children pick up the 5 - 7 series' books at any age below 10-12...
I mean, if I had kids now - I would make sure that they read age-appropriate books which fuel their mental growth, which in turn will help them at a later stage to understand what "Being Gay" actually means...
Mad Momma has written a balanced post on the whole issue here which is so appropriate.
How many of us would explain the terms homosexual to a child below 10-12 yrs of age?

Why should children grow up any faster? She makes a very valid point by saying that -
"I'd rather they sit under a tree and eat jam and scones a la Enid Blyton."
Again, arguments arose for her article for which she says again -
* MM you had me nodding all along! *
Here, the question is not about Gay couples or whether they can provide the necessary security children should have. It doesn't mean that all heterosexual couples are giving the required security for children - no, it just means that the sexual orientation of a fictional character is pointless.
Why bring it up now? When you say your books are targeted for children - why bring this out now?? What is the point?
Again, I ask the same question - how is it actually helping the LGBT community?
Will the declaration of Dumbledore's sexuality make Gay marriages/relationships legal?
Will parents across the globe stop treating homosexuality as a contagious disease? NO...

Our society is rife with prejudices against LGBT communities...
And I just spoke to a colleague - and he said that - now, after all this - he doesn't want his 8 yr old son to read the 5th book of the series and he won't be buying it!!!

You will find people of this sort of mentality more than the ones who say - it's alright.

I really don't think that this has helped the Gay community...
More awareness, more acceptance is needed and that is happening very slowly and I definitely don't think Rowling's declaration has helped anyone - Homo or Hetero in conquering their fears, prejudices...
Its really a death for children's literature as MM aptly mentions...
We still symbolise innocence with children - I don't think that we want that to be taken away from us...

Please note: This doesn't mean I am against or prejudiced against the LGBT community.It just means that the sexual orientation of a fictitious character isn't helping anyone...
