Fun Stuff!!

Paint my nails! Make my hair!!
I want to fall asleep. Isn’t that dreamy, drowsy feeling when someone pampers you just the ultimate? I have the good fortune of experiencing that feeling more often than before, thanks to my maid. She is the all girly-girly-slumber-party-lover-sorts. She makes it a point to paint my, my sister’s and my mom’s nails every two weeks. She tries out new(and old) hairstyles on me each time she gets a chance to lay her paws on my oh-so-silky hair.

This feeling of bliss is probably alien to many a male who hasn’t had the luck to feel the acetone evaporating from his nails (apart from the weird road-side-romeo types with a long red pinky finger-nail *yuck*). At times, I feel the life of a male could be so drab. No pretty make-up, no gloss to fuss about, no cute tops to compare with your girlfriends, no silky-straight-super-shiny-hair-to-die-for (the four Ss that must describe your hair), no barbie when you are young, no pink stuff to adorn your room, no jewels and trinkets (sheesh!! That is *such* a pity!!)(of course, I do have a certain aversion to guys/men who wear chunky jewellery. It looks pretty cheap, you know), no nail polish, no girl-talk and soo many other things that make life techni-colour!!

Me is proud to be a gal!

i need hair treatment man.. no.. correction.. my mom feels my hair needs urgent attention.. its supposedly balding.. and i'm like.. wateva.. so mom says.. no gal will fall 4 ya.. 2 which my immediate response it "duh! as if wth hair i had gr8 luck!" .. dudette.. we really dont care.. i mean.. gimme a plain white, black, grey or prussian blue t-shirt and a nice denim or cargo and me will live happily ever after.. dont need no fancy shit 2 put on me.. even gals i feel look terrific without make-up.. my 2 friends whom i've seen without make up simply look beautiful.. i tell thm dont wear anythng man (make up i mean).. u dont need to.. but thn.. if only wud gals listen :P

sneha said...

@harshad- er.. i have even heard of guys who used to play with barbies!!

@sun4none- by make up i don't mean war-paint!!! i said pretty make-up, in the sense, make-up that looks pretty! so there!! n don't get fooled by the 'natural look'; even thts a "look" !! hhehe..!! basically, dressing up is fun! it is!!

sun4none said...

ok sneha.. never experienced it so wudnt know the joy of it may be .. peace :)

oh yeah.. guys do play with barbies.. my nephew had 3 barbies.. and i remember seeing thm with their arms broken.. when asked he told me his G.I.Joe shot them.. haha.. that was too funny!

sneha said...

@sun4none- ahh u have *no idea* what fun pampering yourself is!!

yea well,little boys(n big ones too i guess *cynical*) derive pleasure in breaking things.. i would get really upset if my barbie's head came off! never remember breaking any of her limbs though..!

sun4none said...

hahahaha.. barbie's head comin off.. hahaha.. tell ur lil bro 2 do tht.. he'll be just more than happy 2 do so.. tht'll be just awesome!!!! hahha.. thn hang the barbie against the wall and play football.. kickin the barbie means u scoreeeeeeeeeeeee! :D

"This feeling of bliss..." really?
Think twice... Ahh girls can't. Leave it.

Just stumbled upon here.

One remark for you:
Take off your blinders.

sneha said...

@xohra- thanks!

@bhuwan- perhaps you should try to take pleasure in doing seemingly insignificant things like us! n no, i have no blinders on. probably u do. please take them off and see how beautiful this world is. be careful though!! ur eyes may hurt at first due to the blazing glare of all the sunshine around! :)

sunshine said...

yes accepted guys are not entitled for those... flip the other side...
no cute tops + no barbie + no silky straight hair + no jweles etc etc etc => less money wasted..hehe...
btw guys are less costly to maintain and save all these money and spend for a girl again to get all those stuff someother day in our lives...
no offence yaar..

samiranghosh said...

Hummm... "At times, I feel the life of a male could be so drab".. just that it is the same male that make you feel so special. Quite a fresh persepective, nevertheless we all are proud about you being a "gal".
Does that make you happy! :-)

bhargav said...

be they technicolor dreams or greyscale masterpieces--art excels nonetheless.does colour matter?have you seen statues greek gods lady?what you say with colors i say with shapes.you like dressing up i like dressing down.indeed my comment is strictly my view alone and does not neccessarily reflect the view of males in general

sneha said...

@surendran- er, its not money WASTED! guys have other things that they spurge on!! we don't care much about nike adidas shoes or watches but most guys(virgo men surely) spend on such! well.. its just the perspective i guess!!
but hey, what makes u think 'guys are less costly to maintain' ?? the thing that i mentioned are all under the banner of 'fun stuff' and not 'essential stuff' !! we can live without the pampering. Actually, most women do live without the pampering. Only a few blessed souls get it..

@samiranghosh- :) me feeling special already! hehee!

@mini- thanks!! :D

@bhargav- if shapes work for u then so be it!! this post was about all the 'fun' stuff! these may be(are) shallow, but hello! they are meant to be tht. we do many other things which bring us actual satisfation as well! in fact that is wat 99% of the female community does! its jus a miniscule percent of our time that is spent on 'fun stuff' !!

Surendran said...

you are tat lucky blessed soul eh.... hehe... getting a adidas shoe wil last for a year min.. wats the point in painting ur nails twice a month.....:P

bhargav said...

you seem to have assumed the post of 'speaker of the female sex'.dont u think the stats u put up would pertain to u alone?(hopefully).well, shallowness varies with the waters.......do u get the drift??in simpler words the ratio need not necessarly remain 99:1 for all females ye know?

sneha said...

@surendran- yes, the nail varnish hardly lasts, but these are simple joys that can lighten up moments and you have no idea what a big stress-buster nail-paintng is! mustn't be so cynical all the time nah?! as they say, ' a cynic knows the price of everything and the value of nothing'.


@bhargav- in no way have i implied that iam the 'speaker of the female sex'. i have simply defended my stand and justified the pampering that we girls love to indulge in at times. there is nothing wrong in that. oh and about the ratio- it was a hyperbole! the reader ought to have got the drift! i simply meant that its just "at times" that we like to do 'fun stuff'. now, who doesn't?? atleast iam not a hypocrite. plus, this acknowledgment of my love for luxury and comfort can also be attributed to my being a libran(not that its a negative point about librans. its quite natural for us to have exquisite taste). shouldn't be so literal with words all the time, you know!

bhargav said...

you seem to be quite taken with astrology.hmm i am afraid i dont share your respect for the subject.anyway the difference has been noted and an apology rendered.by the way ur sketches were fascinasting!!the reason being the fact that most other things about you indicate artistic beauty(pardon the corny sound of that) but the sketches........i liked the contrast.cheers

sneha said...

@bhargav- heh heh heh.. i never claimed my pieces of 'art' are 'artistic' !!

sun4none said...

gosh man.. cant stop laughing! why r these freaks attacking u on this post man? u jst stated wat makes YOU happy.. haha.. weird shit!

sneha said...

@sun4none- oh its just fine! comments and readers' opinion are always welcome! i myself enjoy a good discussion :P

sun4none said...

haha.. u r a sport! nice! ;)

sneha said...

http://aashraya.blogspot.com/

in this check out mahabharata stuff... its awesme man.. gawd.. just tooo funny!

i think i'd sent the link to raghu b4.. dont recall now! just check it tho!

sneha said...

@raghu- yea, now that the word verification thing has been removed, its a lot more user friendly. hm, if ur a cusp between a fire and a water sign, its pretty difficult to say who ur best frnds are becuase it takes some tolerance to get along with certain people. now, it all depends. you see, astrology is not really a bunch of hard and fast rules!!

@sun4none- lol.. i'll rake in crores! heh heh heh.. yep, the mahabharata series is good..

sun4none said...

raghu man.. sneha's being all nice, sweet and polite here and just doenst wanna spill out the bitter truth.. ah well.. guess i'll do tht 4 u..

1)both these signs are gonna kick ur ass someday
2)both these signs just cannot tolerate u and u r a real pain in their ass.. so back off! anyway they are gonna kick ur butt :P
3)u r destined 2 be a loner.. so face it!
4)be a monk.. wont hurt u as much!

(u r welcome sneha :P)

Divya said...

Hahahahahahahaha!!! Oh this is hilarious!!! People think about me sooo much even when i'm nowhere to be seen.. how nice:P

Well i agree cent percent about the feel good factor of everything you described except the nail paint.. im so not a nail polish person(tho i do like that chill acetone feeling:P), but u gotta agree that its a lot easier for guys... imagine being in a bind n realisin u cant go somewhere or wear summin particular cos u havent been to the parlour..:S

Oye raghu, do we see a war about to be waged?? personally, i don believe an iota in that astrology (in the words of sun4none) *shit*..

oh hey sneha, for some reason, ur blog is banned by my university network cos it allegedly contains inappropriate stuff.. wat ha? ha? hehehe...

sneha said...

@divya- WHAT? u serious? shit. but, wat the heck. about astrology, doubters will be believers once they themselves benefit from the oldest science know to mankind, womankind and whatever other kind there may be. and yes, it is very much a science.

sun4none said...

me hates 2 convince ppl.. so me will just be a silent (yeah right!) observer here.. so sneha.. u go gal! make div a believer! :D

raghu said...

kutte...2 days im ill n mere upar backstabbin!!!

so basically im a loner... n i like bein called 1...
n den astro... da only thing in science dat evr favours astro is water... v hav 75% body wt water..n if moon can get tides goin up n down ...it mite jus effct our body 2... but doesnt convince me... v can make choices...suk dis 1s 4 u,,,jus cos life scrwd u up royally by not lettin u join military doesnt mean u dint hav a choice rather doesnt mean others dont hav choices..obvi evrythin is not controlled...but wat is not cant b found by astro...
