I have some statistics on men.
*chorus from the readers* :"Ofcourse you do!"
Where was I?
Yes, the opposite sox (spelling changed coz far too many people keep stumbling onto this site looking for 'Bengali sox').
Right now, I believe 80% of the men in this world over the age of 21, are jerks.
The remaining 20% are gentlemen and make ideal mates. Among them:
10% would be attached or handicapped in a way that would make them unavailable.
5% would be gay.
leaving us with remaining 5% to fight over.
Thats why girls complain that they can't find good guys.
(no, I'm not running stats on women)
The other reason is because we all have this pre-conceived notion of how the 'ideal' partner would be. Not just in looks, career and temperments but the whole package.
"Someone like me"
"Someone who reads/writes/talks a lot/is quiet/passionate/kind/wild etc"
"Someone tall/dark/fair/muscular/hairy/non-hairy/nice eyes etc"
....are all obvervations I've heard thrown around (I do a lot of them myself)
Even the ones among us who don't think aloud details like these are infact lying to themselves.
We make these observations about not only ourselves, but other women friends/family members around us too. Possibly a woman thing or a human thing.
All the while we are probably dead wrong- a realization that has been quite startling for somone like me who doesn't believe in Love-at-first-sight or Fate.
Either I'm getting older and desparate or older and more liberal but I'm quite willing to believe you can never correctly predict your Mr Right-who-rides-off-into-the-sunset-with-you.
Its all a probability.
Maybe you'll be happy for a long time or not.
Since love is not a constant thing neither are your loved ones.
I think I'll be looking for a Mr Now instead.
On another note, I'll be basking in Florida for the next little while pretending to be 12 years old, looking for Alladin. If my dad doesn't permanantly get us lost in the US, I'll be back to TO on the 22nd.
I.E. I'll be back on the blogging board after that.
At some point.
*kisses in the air*
"Don't be jealous!"
On an entirely different note did you know Lays has made 'wasabi' flavoured chips now?
Can I just say 'Heaven' and also 'Sit me down with a bag and call me a Potato'.
What would be think of next ?
Death by Bento
Everybody who is anybody who knows me knows about the 3rd religion of my life:
I'm a great believer in its yummyness combined with' its-not-deep-fried-so-should-be-great-for-you' philosophy. It accounts for my monthly fish intake. It is also a replacement for salad like things you are supposed to have etc.
Obviously the corporate world couldn't leave it at that and have started to add MSG to all commercially made 'Bento Nouveau' (R) brand boxed sushi, the kind available in cafetaria freezers across ontario.
Sure, its entirely possible that all my favourite sushi joints (Oishi Kada in Kensington Market, Oyster Bar on Mt Pleasant) add MSG to their sushi too but you know I really could have done without knowing it.
Just so you all know, I will some day be diagnosed with having a tumour for going healthy.
Don't talk to me about Life.
If you ever wondered what your pet(current/past/future) says about you, look no further.
My extensive non-existent knowledge in psychology reveals this:
Big dog: You like having people you love surround you. You have self esteem issues in the way little old ladies do that you think everyone else is out to get you. So you want a purse or a mean killing machine to protect yourself. You love picking up shit after people
Cat: You are outgoing and positive. You hate to be depended on. Sure you are loyal to an extent, but you don't like the constant nagging from loved ones. You are also spoilt and lazy. Comfort means everything to you.
Little dog: You are cute. You define fashion and high life. You are also shallow and love to stamp on the little people, smiling all the while.
Bird: You are a homebody and love to have people over for tea. You are a control freak and hide a number of fresh skeletons in the closet. Thats not a metaphor for you.
Fish: You are dependable and successful. You are also extremely selfish and two faced. You like to portray the image of selflessness to lure people into liking you.
Lizard: You are spontaneous and friendly. You are a self-loather. Secretly you long to be bound and whipped and called ugly.
Goldfish: You are worthless and not worthy of love......even from an animal with a brain mass of 0.097 grams
Anything else: You are edgy and an inventor. You think you are different and better but you are actually just as stupid as everyone else only probably will die earlier.
*Sorry, I'm having a bad day*
