I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks! You are my visitor number,


    Mr Now

    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.
    I think.

    *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 ?

    I completely agree with you. I think because of our pre-conceived notions of what our "ideal" partner is, we may be missing out. There are some fundamental life philosophies that we should not compromise on, but other than that we should keep an open when initially meeting people.

    And as I've said before, u need to sift through a lot of garbage to find the treasure (yeah I know...super cheezy but what can I say, I'm in that kind of mood of late :P)

    I don't believe in love at first sight either. I do believe a bit in fate in that there is someone out there for you, however, it is up to us to see the opportunity and seize it (which most of us don't).

    These things happen when we least expect it. :D
