Some people I love to HATE

Filed under: Tags — Teal @ 3:28 pm

My big fat mouth, and this case, my stupid fingers have earned me another tag post from Macadamia!

So here I go, this one is about 5 kinds of people whom I hate.

#1 Hypocrites:

I LOATHE them. If you dont like someone you can just give them the silent treatment or smile occasionally. [if in cases like the workplace where you have no choice.] You dont have to go on a raging rampage to kill the other person either. But WHY oh WHY do people act like you are their best friend?

“Ohh , you look amazinggggg in this salwar dear, the color totally becomes you! ”

Evil mind translation: You look fatter than usual , you fat cow. Fuschia eh? I am semi blind now!

“I hope you will find great success and accomplish great new peaks in your team.”

Evil mind translation: Now that Murphy feels I have screwed your career enough, you, my dear toy are going to another. I hope he screws it more, much much more.

#2 Narcissists & Chauvinists:

Men are good , infact few men are good. Women are best [Yes, this is my blog, so I can say whatever I want.] But just because we are missing out on the bonding at the smoking areas and other such ‘alpha male’ locales, we are being horribly understimated. We can be clean and STILL be the best at what we do.

I hate guys who stamp female workers as inferior, even after making us work all possible timings and extracting maximum work. Because they are paranoid to not make female ‘work buddies’.

Misogynists may also consider themselves included in this category

#3 Lecherous creeps:

These are the kind of lifeless jackasses, who make no pretension of looking elsewhere. They shamelessly look at you from head to toe, check you out every time they pass you by, and when u throw them a disgusted (and or) furious look , they give a seedy smile that reads in big bold letters , that too in neon color “Haai, I wants to fiandsip with youu , you loooks very pretty yaa!”

The fuckers who molest women in public transport and crowded areas can also considered themselves included here. And also pedophiles.

#4 Gossipers:

Some people who are plain jealous of another person’s success, or who cant stand to see some people happy, resort to pathetic ways of ruining people’s repute. These are the ones who propagate rumors of potential couples within the same team, and underperformance, and make it a point that it reaches your supervisor’s ears!

#5 Disrespectful people:

we live in a mutual understanding of respect. In order to expect respect, we must respect another just the same. But unfortunately not everyone is as mature as i am 😛

Mia, now will be laughing her Dr.Evil laugh, yes amiga, me done with that tag of yours 🙂

Only Heart : A tag post, after a long time!

Filed under: Tags,Uncategorized — Teal @ 8:56 am

It has been a really long time, since I have been tagged. Senor Brat has done the honours, so will do! [Can’t refuse that guy 😛 ]

  1. Put your iPod (or other source of music) on shuffle mode.
  2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
  3. You must write the name of the song no matter what. No cheating!

Simple, ain’t it? 😉 Here we go!

“If someone says ‘Is this okay?’, you say?”
Mr.Mister – Broken Wings
Oh my! What do I say for this one?

“What would best describe your personality?”
Jamiroquai – Canned Heat
You know this boogey is for real …. Got canned heat in my heels tonight baby!Well now this makes a wee bit of sense 😀

“What do you like in a guy/girl?”
Ilayaraja – Janani Janani
My ideal guy should be a god? Metaphorically, maybe?

“How do you feel today?”
Tum se hi [Remix] – Jab we met
Well, it’s a monday morning, so you decide. Btw, the song has no relevance with how I feel today!

“What is your life’s purpose?”
John Mayer – My stupid mouth
Keeping my stupid mouth from getting me into further hassles, but that is a precautionary measure, not Purpose!

“What is your motto?”
Apolcalyptica – Nothing Else matters
Forever trusting who we are, and nothing else matters. Life is a crazy journey, you just have to believe in yourself and take a plunge without wondering if there is a safety net anywhere in sight. Consequences will happen no matter what the nature of cause. [Getting too philosophical here, I think!! ]

“What do your friends think of you?”
Thiruda thiruda – Raasathi en usuru ennuthilla
They love me to the point that they will die lest I leave them 😉 No I am not being narcissistic! Merely translating the lyrics of the song. . .

“What do you think of your parents?”
The Corrs- Summer Sunshine
Yep, they are the rays of sunshine in my dull boring life! 😀

“What do you think about very often?”
Something Something – Nu ostharante na odhanntana
Hmmm, yes I have always wanted to act like a raving lunatic, strum electric guitars like I am possessed in front of a respectable middle aged crowd. [Oh come on, who am I kidding!] The jugalbandi part is fun, though 😉

“What is 2+2?”
Linkin Park – Points of Authority
Forfeit the game, coz tomorrow when it’s all done, you reap what you sow. Annual hike around the corner, and I know that some undeserving twits will get more than me, and as per top level management math, 2+2 can be anything from 3 , 10 or even 15% Many mathematicians have voluntarily checked themselves in at Arkham, fearing a torrent of diplomatic crap as justification from the afore mentioned people 😐

“What do you think of your best friend?”
New York Nagaram – Jillunu Oru kaadhal
Well, this song reminds me of only one person, and that aint my best friend! 😉

“What do you think of the person you like?”
Usher – Yeah
Got nothing to say here. Shuffle mode gone LOCO! Interpret this the way you like!

“What is your life story?”
Dekho nashe mein – RACE
The world has gone nuts. Lots of stuff going on inside. One thing very weird, when any question of my life props up here, all dance related numbers are coming up! I cant dance to save my life! :-S

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
Aerosmith – Living on the edge
Yeah baby! I want to take life head on and live on the edge, with no fear or worries! I want to change quite a few things about this world, too.

“What do you think when you see the person you like?”
Deep Purple – Never Before

“What do your parents think of you?”
INXS – Never tear us apart
My folks love me LOADS 😀 To the point that they don’t want to part with me. The additional factor here being the youngest kid at home!

“What will you dance to at your wedding?”
Fort Minor – Believe me
“I guess that this is where we’ve come to, If you dont want to, then you dont have to believe me. Just so you know now, you are on your own now,believe me!!” Probably this is what my parents would warn me about my married life :-S

“What will they play at your funeral?”
The Beatles – The Long and winding road
People are going to miss me a LOT, looks like it!

“What is your hobby/interest?”
Tom Petty – Into the great wide open
“Into the great wide open, under the sky so blue

Out in the great wide open, a rebel without a clue!”

Need I say more? Yeah I’ve always wanted to travel 😀

“What is your biggest secret?”
The Corrs – What I can do to make you love me?
As if I would actually be LOCO enough to divulge my biggest secret in such a public forum.

“What do you think of your friends?”
Guns and Roses – Sweet child of mine
It takes a lot of time, tests and life’s trials for me to consider a person my friend. Many seldom cross the line between acquaintance and friendship. And yeah, all my friends are my sweet children 😀 I dote on them all!

“What should you post this as?”
John Mayer – Only Heart
Yet another relevant answer. Damn you, you vile walkman phone!

I leave the choice to people on my blogroll or any visitor of TEALSPACE to continue with this tag 🙂

Most guys I’ve met have turned out to be jerks or total assholes of all possible scales of measure … so if i find someone worthwhile then I wont be shy.

Chaat all the way ! PavBhaji and Bhelpuri.

17) Who was the last person/people who made you mad?
My folks.

Weird …

Filed under: Tags — Teal @ 6:37 am

I was tagged eons ago by Me2Rock for this tag. [Although he is yet to clear mine! X-( .. he’s more regular in Y! 360 than at blogger.] Dont worry Komal, shall clear your blog-debt soon .. just that i dont think blogger can gimme enuf space to host my post for your tag .. 😛 So let me see … me2rock asked me to write some weird things about myself. So here goes ~ [Ahem Ahem .. attention please …]

I sing a lot .. and when I sing with my friends , I most often than ever include the background music and the pauses just like in the song.

When I am at home , music follows me wherever I go. When I am cooking or eating, my powerhouse should blare out music, in my computer my UBL series speakers should always play music … always. And when I am nowhere near my comp or powerhouse , my i-pod takes their place … B-)

I have a fairly good idea of what I was in my previous births. Here’s a list of few previous lifetimes of mine :

  • High priestess.
  • Samurai Warrior.
  • An Egyptian Pharoah.
  • A great musician .. [somewhere in between, I am sure of it!]

My Best friend thinks I have contradictory emotions. Sometimes I think she’s right!

I know for a fact that this is my last birth, I shall not have another mortal life.

So all ye mere mortals, feel privileged to read my works , for this is my last lifetime, ever !

I am very sensitive …. but I can be horribly insensitive to others, if I loathe them enough.

I quote a lot [understatement of the millenium] from ‘The MAtrix’ and ‘F.R.I.E.N.D.S’ , so much that sometimes people dont get me at all.

I have lost count of how many times I have seen – ‘The MAtrix Trilogy’, ‘The Recruit’ and ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ , not to mention 10 seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S

A quiz I took at Quizilla said I am Rachel, although I am more like Pheobe.

I wish to be Blossom of the Powerpuff Girls. [amidst many things…]

I am brutally frank. PERIOD.

I am really into palmistry, sun signs and stuff.

Okies, I am majorly bored to go on any further. So here I go, tagging a few friends of mine:

Hell’s Angel

Mighty Titan



Muwahahaha … this is only the beginning ….

January 21, 2006
