Word To Pakistani Wise

Yes, it's very tragic... [shout out to sibling M.J Mallal whom I was talking to on this very topic]

Marked Absent

...And you can pretty much predict what the answer's gonna be too - or can't you?

Wednesday, August 24, 2011


I thought up a couple of titles for this post but they sound so trite, specially since I am an outsider looking in so I might not have all the facts right about the situation. Hence, this is what I *believe* to be true about marriage without ever being married (Thank God?).  I could be wrong - or I could be righter than I imagine. 
This is just Part I of what I believe - more later.

One World - One Snore

Usually, people (myself included) look at kids and think that all kids cry the same and their mode of communication is similar when they haven't started talking. Snoring relates the adults - irrespective of religion or race. Amazing.

With Age Comes...?

Why? You get more disillusioned and fed up with the system; your patience starts wearing thin and the same things which you could laugh about start irritating you.

Writer = The Vain of Art?

No? But I take so much time looking for a pen and searching for just the right tissue to write crappy thought on! Plus I yak a lot so I should be considered a writer by default, I say! What do I have to do to be taken seriously? Starve?

(After) Life Worries

Worry about your own problems before taking on other people's after-life issues, please! (okay fine - they're worried about MOST muslim communities which include pretty much 90% of Muslim population)

Do You Know?

I *think* I missed an 'it' in the first line (3rd word from left). Oh, well. But yeah, about the movie thing? Don't you guys realize that they're condensing a book into a 2.5 hours (max) movie - scenes have got to be cut - audiences need to be pleased. The story in 99% of the cases suffers.

Clearing Cleverbot

Didn't have time to write up anything today as I was busy bashing a popular media guy on social networks but I do have this:

 I just love to mess around :P

Petty Pakistani Patriotism

I'm talking about facebook profiles right now and I'm not even gonna touch the loud proclamations of 'I love Pakistan!!!!'(s).

Congrats and Goodbye

Unfortunate, yet true - most people/friends grow apart after they get married. On facebook it's a shock sometimes when I see people whose names I don't recognize, with whom I have nothing in common any more. Anyway, was just thinking aloud if I should cut down my 'friends' list a bit -'course this whole thing doesn't apply to ALL my married 'acquaintances'- just some.

Impurely Yours

I agree. If you're gonna be mixing in weird stuff to the food we eat, for example, at least add in something that wouldn't harm the people...but adding brick powder to chili? Or cement in other spices? Makes the milkman look pretty okay now, doesn't it?  *sigh*

Play Life Like A Free Cell Game

With respect to there being no 'restart life' option: I'm trying to deal with it (surprisingly hard to do considering how recently it has struck me). And yes, I did take the background photos I am using here so there's no plagiarism involved.

De-NAY-ing it

What prompted this? 
(Only for people who understand Urdu/Hindi  - for those who don't understand: it's a torrent of grievances about how women are never happy, are always bitching and have a problem with almost everything)

You're First...Therefore, You're The Loser

I know it sounds whiny. It's not meant to be. Okay, actually it is - a tiny bit. Disregard the whininess and concentrate on the logic of it. There you go.

"Girls Your Age..."

It's just too bad, rural ladies don't get to hear about how their urban sisters are driving around, free as a bird and have a lil something called 'life'...And I mean come on, having kids in your twenties - understandable but this lecture is given to 14-year-olds all over the country. What are you trying to tell us?

Could It Be? - Nah!.........Oh. It Could.

What triggered this?
I could put the link here but I won't. Don't want the hate to spread (not that it'll help) - the only thing I'll say is this: Please refrain from making fun of other people's beliefs. Also, in case you hadn't noticed, you are not in charge of passing judgement. Well okay, you are - on yourself.  Aaaaaaaaaaaand you can begin......NOW.

Girls, Be Safe (In Fight Or Fright)

Don't answer that last question.
And do NOT discuss head-scarves/religious issue here. Look at 

And while we're talking about cat fights, the only ammunition girls have is HAIR. I remember coming home from school and telling my dad about a catfight and even he said "Well, overall I'm guessing no harm done - hair can grow back" :P I am so glad I have short hair so I'm safe (relatively speaking).

If you don't believe me about hair ammunition:

That is NOT Mirpur, AK - I think it's a private exclusive school in one of the bigger cities.
Anyway, still not convinced?

F'oreal: Because You're Worth........ A Lot

This is why I hate going to unknown beauty salons to get my hair cut  - the 'beauticians' are like leeches - In all honesty, I can't blame them for pushing it but I like having the freedom of choice if only for how fake I want to look (a little and not too much, as it turns out)

A Hairy Situation

Yes, I know - sort of a girly topic, right? 'Some' people (including my sibling) were doubting if I was a girl lady cuz I'm not into makeup and/or dressing up. (Yes, getting me to discuss clothes really is akin to torturing me  - although that doesn't deter me from trying to sew them, I've noticed). But she and I have always wondered about the above. You get no points for trying to guess which situation applies to me. *sticks tongue out!* 

P.S: From my school grammar classes, I seem to remember hair was to written in the singular - like sheep and/or fish so did they change the rule? Or did I understand incorrectly?

Deep Meaningful Conversations....

...with your friends can make you a better person.

Yes, I learnt a lot from this particular piece.

*beefee = best friend (or as I like to say Baise faaraind)
**You'll have to read the text by clicking on the pic/link. My writing is terrible.

Waat Aaar Yao Saiy-ying?

If you're wondering
a) Whether I now know what was being said at the assembly...? Yes, I finally figured out in 8th grade that the words meant 'Stand-at-ease' and 'Attention'
b)What my accent sounds like? Well, that's debatable. I've been told by Americans that it sounds like Canadian and by Canadians that it sounds like American so I honestly can't say. I can't say I care either way cuz it's not like I'm winning any contests if it goes one way or another (that'd have been SO cool, though!)
P.S I hope to God that I used 'affect' correctly this time round

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Ew! Is that...?

Sorry for the blurry last word - IF in case you can't make it out - its 'choosers'. I'm being a lazy bum. Sad but true.

The Usefulness of JalTheBand

For the uninitiated, a 'bhains' is a buffalo ( It's also female which is neither here nor there when it comes to: JALTHEBAND).

In the Line of Duty

Okay, this applies mostly to Pakistani martyrs. Other countries' martyrs come up with your own criterion

Gossip Women

One of the many reasons for my hate of Pakistani weddings.
*correction: That is an effect, not affect...I already gimp'ed it's head off so you can't tell in the photo above what I wrote originally. And don't think I was lazy and just wrote what I thought was correct, either. I did try to look up the correct version of a/effect but apparently, I'm dumber than I thought. All I can say is: DO NOT FOLLOW THIS  WEBPAGE AND THEIR CRAZY ASS EXAMPLE: ya see why ya can't be a Grammar N'zi when ya dunno nuthin'
